11:44PM - Rock and roll where art thou?
I was content all day, working hard, reading Greek tragedies in a coffee shop aside silent studying friends. I realized on my chilly bike ride home that it is Monday night, the night I used to descend the Silverlake stairs to the free show at Spaceland and drink pineapple martinis till I was dancing onstage with my partners in crime. There has got to be some middle ground, but I don't think I am going to find it here.

10:17PM - Owwie
I came back from LA with a skwished face and heart. The latter hurts more. I want to go to a place that feels like home, but right now, that place doesn't exist.

We would luv to get some playdates for
our 8 year old son - who is into skateboarding/X-box/
basketball. I was thinking we could take them to the park and
see where it goes from there.
What, this kid can't get his own playdates?
And doesn't he seem a little young to just "see what happens"?
I'm just sayin.

3:41PM - Hmm...
I was reading an article about Darfur, Sudan today in the LA times...it didn't use the word genocide once. That scares me...I mean how far does one have to dig to get the truth?

8:19PM - Rapunzel
I have the kids for the whole weekend...I feel like I am trapped up here. I am not sure what I would do if I could leave, but I feel suffocated. And very depressed.
It's 8:30. I think I'll go to bed.

12:22PM - Turn on the Pope Scope
Is it true that the new Pope was affiliated with Hilter and was once a member of the Nazi Youth Army?
If it is, it would seem fitting as far as "world leaders" go in today's world.

I got to English class early, and some other students and I struck up a conversation about an e.e. cummings poem...this has never happen to me at LACC. It was an intellectual conversation outside of class time, without the professor and didn't include any of the following
"This class/teacher/poem/you/that test/my grade sucks."
I was happy.
I have been happy a lot lately, in the midst of Little League and verb conjugations...

10:44PM - I know it when I see it...
Here is a famous example of ME.
I have been beating myself for days because my art professor told me that "Guernica" by Picasso (which he is currently lecturing on) hangs in the Museo de Picasso in Barcelona, which I visited last summer. At the time I knew very little about Picasso. I do not remember seeing this painting, if I did, it had no effect on me. I start to think I can't appreciate art, that I have no eye for the profound, that I can't call myself an artist or an academic if I pass by a work like this without it touching me in some way!
So, today I looked it up in my textbook learn more and loathe myself.
I look at the print, and underneath it reads: Located in the Prado, Madrid.
I felt better for a moment, them realized - I had the chance to go to the Prado, but I had just arrived jet lagged as all hell in Spain, so I took a nap instead. I began bashing myself again.

11:04AM - Um, Duh
Looks like someone needs a better research topic....I could've told you this.
WASHINGTON - Malt liquor, a type of beer that is higher in alcohol than other brews, is largely a drink of the homeless and unemployed, and is likely to be abused, U.S. researchers reported Monday.
And malt liquor is heavily marketed to black and Hispanic youth, the team at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science in California found.
Their study of 329 drinkers in Los Angeles found that malt liquor drinkers are different from those who choose other tipples.
Ricky Bluthenthal, who led the study, said malt liquors were both higher in alcohol than other beers and tended to be sold in larger containers.
"We found that the combination of these differences resulted in the average malt liquor drinker in our study consuming 80 percent more alcohol per drink than the average regular beer drinker," he said in a statement.
And, Bluthenthal said, the more alcohol consumed, the worse the consequences for both the drinker and his or her community.
Writing in the March issue of the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research, Bluthenthal's team said they found malt liquor drinkers were more likely to be homeless, unemployed, receive public assistance, and tended to drink more alcohol than other drinkers.
Rhonda Jones-Webb, an expert in alcohol consumption and behavior at the University of Minnesota who reviewed the study, said she was concerned about the marketing of malt liquor.
The products are largely targeted to black and Hispanic youths and young adults, she said.
"Rap artists have been popular images in malt liquor advertising and 'gangsta' rap performers portray malt liquor as a sign of masculinity," she said.
"Advertising influences brand choice, and what young people drink in early years influences what they drink as adults," she added in a telephone interview.
Malt liquors are often sold in 40-ounce bottles, she added. "Rap lyrics and movie scripts encourage 'chugging' the bottles before they get warm," she said.
"The combined effects of higher alcohol content, larger serving size, and faster consumption can result in higher blood alcohol levels, an increased risk of aggressive behavior, and other alcohol-related problems."
Jones-Webb said larger studies should be done on the type of alcohol that people drink, advertising of the different types and their influence on behavior and crime.

1:56PM - This one's for you Tab -
I saw one of the guys from "Friends" at Coffee Bean on Friday. I don't know his name, it was the guy who is not Ross and not Joey. He was with this girl who was a Courtney Cox look-alike, but not her. She couldn't order a drink on her own, poor thing got confused and thought she was in a Starbucks. Friends guy apologized to me and let me go ahead of him.
There you go.

5:59PM - Mall Rat
The other day I did the weirdest thing. I got out of school and work got canceled. So I got a manicure and pedicure, plus got little flowers painted on my toes. Still lacking something to do - I went to the mall. Me, at the mall? Those little flowers on my toes seem to be leading me around - taking over my personality. I wear skirts and heels everyday so my toes show. I started putting on jewelry and perfume. I know this will pass, probably when I have to start getting up at the crack of dawn to go to school next week, but for now, I enjoy being a girl.

2:33PM - Times they are a-changin
Nothing great to post in the last week. Post B-day slump? I don't know. Feeling self destructive, but it's hard when your only outlets are beer, loud rock music and not doing your homework.
Had a nervous breakdown over an English paper (not really about the paper) - thankfully I have a Jungian Therapist/English 101 professor from a past life to help me, and buy me the occasional veggie burrito in Snack Alley.
Yesterday I had a evil tummy ache, but stayed up till 2 typing anyway.
I got an A on my first English test.
I told my modern art history professor about my idea to recreate some 60ies performance art for my final project and his reaction was as follows -
Prof - (eyes light up) "Yeah! we can put some canvas down on the floor and show projections on the walls and play music..."
Me - "Uh, actually, I have musicians willing to come in and-"
Prof - "REALLY? GREAT! I do some research this weekend about ways you could go with this..."
He'll do the research? Hehe.

11:09PM - The Oscars...
...what a F*%#ing stroke-fest. I can't believe I watched as much as I did. Especially since it was happening live two miles down the street. But then an hour long show about famous hot dog stands across America came on. That I can get behind. Now I am hungry for like a million hot dogs.
