the 2004 election was stolen.

i've said it before, i'll say it again, but here, ladies and gentlemen, we have what may indeed be the last word in an ongoing debate on salon. i haven't read the primary literature, but based on what this guy says and what i've heard elsewhere, the election was fucking jacked.


how can we export democracy to other continents when it's so badly broken here at home?



ok, i almost NEVER honestly laugh out loud while i'm on the computer. i feel stupid laughing with no one around. but this one made me srsly lol omg. wtf.

Jessica Simpson to Pamela Anderson: "How did you guys run so slowly in the show's opening scene. You know, where you're running down the beach?"


june? what the fuck...

so suddenly it's june, and the year is almost half over. it's been 4 months and a day since the breakup... already it feels like more than that, except for the fact that i haven't yet found another meaningful relationship. i think this is the longest i've been single since before karl, in 12th grade. but on the plus side, it's given me plenty of time to think about who i am and what i really want in a relationship. more on this later; i've come to some conclusions that may surprise (some of) you.

on the academic side of things, spring quarter is coming to a close disturbingly fast. tomorrow i have an exam and the last lecture of the quarter. the days really are flying by... i feel like they're about 20 hours long. kind of ridiculous the way the weeks have been melting away. i'll be graduating in about 9 months, which feels like a long time, but really isn't, especially when i consider that 9 months ago was september. fall quarter. bio 200 in the auditorium in smith hall, standing around in the rain. rain, rain rain. that's what the past 9 months have been... and it's what today is. it's been a soggy winter.

revisiting a lot of old favorites as mellow study music... lamb, faithless, the nip/tuck soundtrack. good stuff. i think i might listen to baxter tomorrow... there's good rainy-day music.

in 3 months i will have my 5th bloggiversary. i think that makes me one of the longest-running bloggers on the internet... though there are several months in 2003 and 2004 that have very little activity, the blog has never died. and i plan on keeping it alive for the forseeable future... no sense killing something that's got such a streak going.
