A couple days ago, I heard a thump as I walked by the next building over, and realized it was a squirrel when it tried to run up a brick wall to get away from me.

This one sex scene I'm trying to write is giving troubles, not the sex, but the emotions behind it.

Far ahead of all other songs at 78 times: First Day of My Life - Bright Eyes

Next closest is Comptine d'Un Autre Été off the Amelie soundtrack at 66.

Having finally gotten a ticket to the Lady Gaga love train, I watched some of her videos. Alexander Skarsgard is in one of them. Never have I ever been so jealous. Now I have another reason to become a pop sensation.

Ever since I watched Glee, I cannot get this one song out of my head. It's a duet. From a show about a choir that sings contemprorary songs. You know that's riiiiiiiiiight up my alley.

I haven't been getting enough sleep lately, the lure of TV is too powerful. Can't stop thinking about how this boy wants to date me and how I am not sure how to feel about this. I never thought of him like that. I never think about friends like that. This morning I forgot my phone under my pillow and wrote a math test. This pretty much describes the state of my day. Now: off to the post office and then for some Chinese food to make me feel better with the sweet buzz of MSG.

Today made up for its warmth with its gusts and windiness. I still can't find anything to say to mom. I went to the library and got books. The True Blood book I got picks up where the end of S1 left off. Score! I have Sookie Stackhouse PDFs. CSE homework. And a math test on Tuesday.

Russian continues to be a time of utter and complete domination on my part. Going to buy my book today. Creepy Alex is in my class. Is only bad thing about class. Next time, will get there early so I don't have to sit near him.

The really interesting class looks like it's going to be Issues in Microscience. It's all about implants and body modifications. Prof is rather funny. He joked about being a big nerd, which is good, because I can relate, used the word zesty to describe the wealth of material we are going to cover in the class, and told us that when the university made it mandatory to take an upper level science class, the first year of students were all really angry about it, so he started with lessons on breast implants and condoms. My kind of thinking.

Also, when I walked in, there was a tape playing of a knee replacement surgery, which was nauseating and also absolutely fascinating. I feel as though I would be a great scientist if I could put up with upper level math. *sigh*

Pre-calc, which I'm retaking, is going to be hell, but prof said that if you have perfect attendance, she will bump up your grade half a letter, and even pass you if you're a point or two away. I'm not too proud to say that I might need it. I just want to get that fucking F off my transcript.

I went to abnormal psych, but I'm not going to stay in it, I think. I thought it would be a bit different from the other psych classes I've been in, but it's not. The prof mumbles, and her note style is irritating.

One thing I will say is that the math/science types start class on time on time or even early. which I adore. I can't stand when the prof stands around as time ticks by.

I still have to go to philosophy, which I'm hoping will go allright, as I really don't want to have to scramble for another class like I am now with abnormal psych. The problem is that I tend to hate English and Psych, and can't really comprehend the hard sciences. Maybe I should just do languages.

True Blood is all sorts of amazing. I thought I was done with vampires and crap, but I'm not.

1. Oh Sookie. You have a stupid name, and fake hair, but you win for all of time for being dressed in your fugly angel pajamas in your sexy dream about Vampire Bill.

2. Vampire Bill is the broodiest, best vampire on TV since Angel. Oh how I miss Buffy.

3. Speaking of which. The supporting characters on this show make this show so much more amazing. Like Sookie's brother, Jason, who's stupider than a box of hair. It's fun to see him make a fool of himself. Then there's her best friend Tara who had a crush on Jason. And her coworkers, her boss, who may or may not be a weredog. Alexander Skarsgård, who, inexplicably looks bangin with long hair, and is a big movie star in Sweden, plays some sort of head vampire Eric on TB. He also plays a marine in Generation Kill, and was a marine a few years ago. Bangin. I even consider the cute fangs that pop out when vampires get excited a character on this show. They look like little snapped off crayon points. Not so much the fucking Southern accents. Arg. I may have to stop myself from speaking with a twang. I'm easily influenced like that.

SO MUCH LOVE.

I am so uber bored, killing time before my 12 o'clock class. Here I am, reading Oh no they didn't, which I would say is a guilty pleasure, but then, I don't feel guilty about much. I feel sort of bad though, that the other people around me in the Law Library are doing VERY SERIOUS WORK and I am browsing for new Star Trek Trailers and Robert Pattinson interviews. Not that bad, mind. Only a little bit.

Home on Friday night. Can't wait. Very excited. I miss my mommy and my BFF. Also, home cooked food. I'm starting to live on campus event pizza and M&Ms. It works out pretty well, because when you go to club meetings, they feed you. It's like a lure or something.

Star Trek movie! With Harold from Harold and Kumar! And Simon Pegg!! And hottie whathisface Kirk!!! My geeky joy runneth over.

Also, True Blood is kind awesome. Southern accents, not so much. But vampires and lots of sex and dryly funny dialogue by Alan Ball, aka, Six Feet Under creator, awesome!

I hate this day. I hate pretty much every day, lately. My god, this is just like the 8th grade all over again. I sprained my left foot, again. Have taken three painkillers since 8 this morning. That may be too much. Am about to go to work. Took the road test for the third time, and again did not pass. My parallel parking was amazing. But I sped, so he failed me. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGGGGGGGGHHHHH...

Okay. So I think John Barrowman is kind of amazing, and have downloaded about five of his songs. Though I can't stand Torchwood. This is not a surprise. And it should not be. At all.

Secret Diary of a Call Girl is pretty amazing, though Billie Piper's teeth kinda scare me, and Belle frequently breaks the fourth wall, and there's a gratuitous shower scene.

More and more, I am realizing that Billie Piper was born in the wrong time. She's the sort of girl who should have been born four hundred years ago, when artists drew tasteful nudes, lounging. She would have been great in the Renaissance.

During a trip to India, my friend Jeff paid a boatman to row him out into the Ganges River for a little recreational cruise. When they got there, the boatman stopped and refused to move, let alone row him back to shore, unless Jeff forked over a surcharge. Don't let something like that happen to you in the coming week, Cancerian. Always have a well-planned arrangement, agreed on in advance, to come back from wherever you're brave enough to go. Be experimental, yes. Explore new territory, yes. Be willing to surrender some control, yes. But make sure you've got a return ticket.

Ally let me drive her car. It's my birthday. I'm thinking that the two things are connected somehow. :)

I can't believe that it's only been a few days because it feels like forever by now. I've done so much in the past few days. I fucking hate the keyboard in this shitty hotel. Of course Taglit Israel would put us up in the shittiest hotel possible. I understand this. I am a Jew too. Israel is amazing. I like it here. It's very warm. I haven't been cold once. And it seems like everyone in Tel Aviv speaks Russian. It's a bit mind boggling. A few more days to go. I don't know half of my group's names. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAh.

I watch a lot of movies, inhaling them, staying up late, plugged into my laptop. Like I used to, with books. And most of them are rather forgettable. Except once in a while, there's one that's just...amazing. Shelter is this lovely movie that takes place in California, has all these shots of surfing and waves and people who seem solid and real.

And even though I should stop watching love stories, because they make me, ultimately, nothing but miserable, I can't quite stop watching, because occasionally I find movies like these, and I feel, for a moment, that love does happen in real life, that it is real and true and possible. Even for me.

Plus, in this movie, I relate to Zach so much it's not funny. But then again, anyone who's known me for awhile could guess why.

I have to say that the new Dr.Who is sexy and funny and science-y enough to not need a spinoff. Torchwood doesn't begin to compare. The new season is promising to be amazing.

Now I just need to watch the season and a half that I missed. Oy.

When in doubt, I just listen to The Shins and call it a good day if I manage to finish all my math homework.

I miss reading. Give me book recs?

The last thing I read was The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, which, as per its title really was amazing, and epic in the best way.
