It is fall here in Texas and it is so beautiful. It makes my heart sing.

A blog that wears many hats is this blog. today i am adding another hat, perhaps the most important hat. from henceforth onward this blog will be my virtual touchstone as a pro and con forum for the epic battle: Bard College vs. the University of Texas. each day i oscillate between the two for hours and hours. it’s really ridiculous. For example, would i rather live here in Texas next year and have my own shower and set of barstools, or move back to Bard and take classes with Geoffrey Sanborn? you see the troubles that ail me. I only know one thing for certain: after college i am going to be a flight attendant. i can pay off my loans while enjoying endless snack packs. win-win. but the question is, which college is better to elevate me to such a peak. the answer is: no solution. which is the best answer when you’re doing introduction to math homework, because you dont even have to show your work
As Veronica Forman slumbers peacefully next to me, so concludes my whirlwind romance with fall fun. Regrettably I will have ended up spending the bulk of this little weekend fling in airports of bastard metropolises such as Albany NY and Cleveland OH. Jk Cleveland rocks. however in return for my ability to sit on a couch for eight hours I have earned a $400 voucher towards any Continental airlines flight. so, I return to texas with a bundle of treasured experiences in my creel. also i am that much closer to an alaskan whale cruise. in conclusion the point of this post is to say that tomorrow, oct 22, i shall gather a collection of unique html codes that i will copy and paste to this blog to magically illuminate my vacation in images rather than words. in a few words, though: at times like these i think: if i didn’t have such a small bladder, life would be so great.
A ridiculous day in Texas: tonight while caring for the small child i care for at the texas-nebraska volleyball game a nice busty blonde lady asked me, “do you have a half day of school tomorrow too?” well technically i have half days everyday, but not in the high-school sense, which is what she was referring too, as she thinks mrs. lady-i-babysit-for plucked me off the stephen austin jr. high pep squad. soon i will graduate college and the world will not be ready for my nineteen-year-old bod, so i guess that gives me that many more years to mess around with freelance childcare and online entrepeneurial opportunities before i have to take the gre. today in “of moose and men: wilderness and american culture” (ams 311s) we had a debate about ansel adams coffee table books. i guess everyone really likes coffee table books except for me. (-) points for texas. my uncle paul sent me his old digital camera which is nice and slim but i have no new pictures unless you want to see some pictures of my tv or my kitchen sink.

I used to read McSweeney’s internet tendency with frequency; I even had a small food review published on it at the age of seventeen. however, i stopped reading mcsweeney’s in the aftermath of the 2004 election, as one can only take so much buck fush before he acutally moves to texas. also they talk a lot about global warming and how it is a problem, and 4/7 people i know say global warming is a lie! some days i wake up and idk what to believe. nevertheless i have nothing against dave eggers et al, he is, after all, a hometown boy of the hometown next to mine, and a better representative of the hometown than vince vaughn, but not as quite as good as nick carraway, who is fictional. everything evens out in the end. anyway, i always liked reading the “mcsweeney’s recommends” section, because it was funny and usually spot-on in recommmending affordable and quality items, ideas, and processes. therefore, in emulation of the more halcyon days of my relationship with the online daily, i will today make a recommendation for you my dear readers and that recommendation is: listening to music in the shower. a few weeks ago my grandma gave me some tender to buy a chair or an ottoman for my apt but instead i bought ipod speaker orb which i can move easily from place to place in my apt since my apt is only one room. when i take showers i put it in the bathroom (far away from any h20) and listen to music while showering. it’s fun! and that is my recommendation for today. my recommendation for tomorrow is the heirloom apple.
today i will be discussing how i live in a one-room apartment. my one-room apartment has beige walls and beige carpet and is technically not one room because there is a small closet which could be a second bedroom for a child or a pet like a cat or a d-g and a bathroom with a door. my apartment is also technically not one room because i have divided my apartment into special sections which are depicted in the following images:
i will also use this blog as a cooking journal, not to be confused with a “food diary,” although there are a lot of post-anorexics in texas. post-anorexics, amputees, and bus drivers with huge, defined calves litter the streets of austin. anyway, this is now additionally a forum to discuss baking and sauteeing, the only cooking methods i wish to employ regularly. i will be doing a public service by providing tips and hints for those with lazy esophageal sphincters and abnormal stomach acidity levels. for instance, tonight i made oven-roasted cauliflower with fresh walmart rosemary and carob-chip brownies. what i do is make pans of baked goods and then leave them by the dumpster for the divers in the morning because i’m not so interested in eating the baked goods but the science that goes into making them. also i want to get into heaven. anyway the following pictures are as explained: one time basha smolen and i drove around the country east of the mississippi. it was last winter break. we went to disneyworld and other notable american cities. are you there, basha? have you found this blog or are you still reading my livejournal? don’t bother; it only has sixteen entries and i didn’t taken any of them seriously. anyway, hey girl. the other picture is of shepler’s western superstore, the premier western superstore in austin. i like to go there once a week, despite the fact that it is in an area of town where people enjoy crack. consequently i am starting to look like a junior rodeo rider.
