Well, That Was Unexpected

Real life is stranger than fiction...depending on which authors you read, of course.

i'd like us all to revisit one of my favorite Onion articles: http://www.theonion.com/content/node/38827 , the reason for this is that i went on a date last night and have therefore been thinking about relationshipal things, and this is one of my favorite faux articles. *sigh* if you want details you have to email me, but i have promised to get my stats homework done before i divulge any details to anyone. so, don't hold your breath.

as for work, i will be developing training content and then i will be traveling around the world and training people using the content i and my cohorts have produced. i will definitely be keeping all of your various locales in mind when i get assigned my travel dates. sooo excited!

i'd also like to announce--and i don't want to be a corporate whore, here--but i LOVE my ultrabland cleanser from lush. it cleanses my skin amazingly while keeping it soft and moisturized.

blargh. back to stats. i also have a bunch of papers due for political economy and may i say that that class has been one of the most stimulating and yet frustrating of my whole life? yes, i may say that.

back from lenten vortex. it was fun, chilly but sunny.

Indeed, I have now been vomited back up from the lenten vortex. it was a crazy ride. and while i did gain some wonderful spiritual insights about the relevance of the resurrection to modern daily life, i have some other more superficial discoveries to proffer:

1. alanis morrissette covers the Black eyed Peas song My humps. find it on youtube and laugh and love it.

2. katie couric on the colbert report. this might only be funny and aweinspiring if you know exactly how awkward most guests are on the colbert report. of all the guests to hold their own, the out-of-favor-with-the-christian-right-for-trashing-james-dobson katie couric? i wouldn't have thunk it.

3. it helps to have a nice bathroom within reach when you decide to drink your daily recommended amount of water.

4. There is very litle that is more superfically traumatizing than unexpectedly seeing a picture of yourself from behind.

i believe it has been a month since i applied for the job that i am waiting to hear back from. in the meantime i have been a disaster. but i think i may have settled on trying to sell all of my possessions on ebay. actually some really awesome things have transpired in teh last month--seeing linda and jane...ill write about that when i'm in a better mood. i'm getting a haircut today. that could really go either way, couldn't it?
