Turns out my finger is broken. So I have an excuse to surf the net as much as I want, within reason. I can't check my email, but I guess the school hasn't heard of Blogger yet, so I'm safe for now.

I want poetry right now. So bad. I miss Leaves of Grass, I wish I had brought it today. =(

Meh. I finally get the chance, and I have nothing to say.

My new favorite place:


"Guy in a Jeep Cherokee passed me this morning with his radio blaring. He stopped for the light and as the engine roar quieted, I heard, "THE NASDAQ COMPOSITE INDEX PLUNGED TO ITS LOWEST LEVEL IN 15 MONTHS..." He was blasting NPR. Rock on, suburban white guy.

I don't write enough. I really really don't. I was doin' good there for a while, posting whenever I could, and writing in my journal several times a day. But here I am, and Febuary's almost gone.

I went to visit my dad in Reston this weekend. I've got an amazing suprise for Christa, that I'm hoping with all my heart will pan out. My dad said he'll buy me a car when I get my license, and hopefully I'll get an old clunker that I can name and cover with stickers and take a thousand road trips in. Also, my dad has a law firm called Giles and Woodward if there are any Indian tribes reading this. They're darn good.

I think I've broken my finger. I really do. Hrm hrm hrm. It's hurting more now than when it first happend, and I'm starting to think that's a bad thing. But my mom and Stan are off on another one of their sporadic trips to wherever, so I can't get it X-rayed till at least tomorrow. Keep in mind, this happened a week ago today.

I've got a more or less steady babysitting job....for Ali's friend and her sister, for next Thursday and the next couple of Mondays. At least I won't be broke any more. I asked for about 4$ an hour, which seems fair, the kids are 6 and 9, and I don't think I'll have to make dinner for them. So that's about twelve bucks per job. Oh yeah, I'm riding high now! But anywho, at least I'll be able to start saving for the many many things I want. I'm probably going to need another job; does anyone have any suggestions?

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH it's been forever, and today's the first!

I miss thee, oh blogger, you are my heart.

Not too much has been happening, I got my wisdom teeth out, got stitches put in, and have been on drugs for about a week straight now. I miss Christa as much as ever, I miss Reston as much as ever [don't tell, but I still miss her more-Christa that is, not Reston] and I have been reading my butt off. I read Maniac Magee yesterday, started The Two Towers the day before that, finished The Fellowship... a good little while ago, and I've been looking through beautiful Leaves of Grass. I have this whole study hall to myself, though I think it may count as skipping class, misunderstandings happen. Wait! That's incriminating evidence! I mean-I'm so confused, no one's in my typing class! There. :-D
