Subject:Rehab
Time:4:12 pm.
I guess Rehab is not just for drug or alcohol addiction, or eating disorders, it help rehabilitate those who clearly have no common sense of make bad decisions.
Dated some loser who forgets your name? Go to rehab
Get caught cheating on your spouse/partner? Go to rehab
Embezzle millions of dollars from your company? Go to rehab
Wore white after Labor day? Hell, go to rehab because apparently there is a twelve step program for everything!
Yes, perhaps the Lohan's and Spears of the world may suffer from some sort of addiction or have a problem with alcohol, especially when they perhaps began drinking at an early age (remember Drew Barrymore was a party girl at ten, a cocaine addict by 12) BUT the only reason these celebrities (or politicians such as the Mayor of San Fran) enter rehab is to save their image. Really, I dont blame the alcohol for the no-undie pictures of B. Spears circulating the internet, I blame her stupidity. But I guess instead of taking responsibility for your actions, it is easier to point the finger at someone or something else.
Ignore me, i am home with a cold, was up above my knees in snow this morning and got stuck (go ahead and laugh), and my car is at the shop.
not a happy girl.

I will say it now...Hillary will get my vote.
and another thing...she was born and raised in Illinois, and her family still resides here, so Obama (who moved here after college) is not the only person from this state running as the media is claiming.
Yes, he is charismatic, but people, he is inexperienced. He would make a great V-P to Hillary.
He is not a bad choice, just not the best.
Hillary, all the way baby!

Subject:La Puerta Negra
Time:4:14 pm.
Ay, what a stressful game it was to watch (Chicago Bears). Too much of a roller coaster ride for me but I loved it. I went up to Chicago to watch the game with friends and fellow Bears fans. Had a nice time up there and I almost canceled the trip since there was suppose to be a big winter storm this weekend. I guess we got lucky and really didnt get hit hard although its cold as heck outside now.
I'm thinking of buying a personal organizer/PDA so if any of you have any recommendations I would really appreciate it. Writing things down in my schedule book really doesnt help and I think I need something that will beep at me or punch me in the stomach when I need to remember meetings or deadlines...

Subject:Rocky!
Time:8:42 pm.
Please don't laugh, but I almost cried watching "Rocky Balboa" today....
yes, you heard me, Rocky got me teary eyed!

Go see it. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
All done with the semester which allows me to sit here listening to Billie Holiday while enjoying a glass of wine. A much deserved glass of wine. This semester was hell, and really, I am not even worry about my grades. I think considering the physical pain and discomfort I was in for the better part of the semester, I am surprised I did not dropp classes. So, grades at this point are not important.

who am I kidding...if I receive anything but A's I will be surely dissapointed.

Subject:panic in the streets of illinois...
Time:10:40 pm.
I spent my birthday (Tuesday) at the Morrissey concert in Chicago.
What a f'ing amazing show. Really, Moz was in great spirits, the set list was great. Made it out to the afterset which was in honor of Morrissey. Danced till 3am then the girls and I headed back to the hotel, and made the mistake of ordering room service (uh, a $15 hamburger? what was I thinking!)
It was a great birthday. I'm glad I made the trip for the show and enjoyed myself. I was worried because the day before I decided to get a haircut. The stylist I normally go to was closed so I went elsewhere. I wanted to cry when I got home. I thought my bangs looked HORRIBLE! i looked like I was trying to look like Betty Page. Ugh. BUT my friends said it looked nice so I will believe them. (even if they are lying)
Today I woke up at 4:30 a.m and went shopping till noon. Insane. People forget their senses when they see sales! really, control yourself ppl! I went for specific items for the kids and bought myself a couple of items (like a much needed new coat). I thought there was going to be a riot at Target when people were trying to cut in front of people who were probably there for hours.
anyway, I hope everyone is well.

Time:11:15 pm.
Who has time on their schedule to sit out in the cold, rainy, windy weather to be in line from Tuesday to Friday JUST to buy a Play Station 3?
I mean, sure, buy one for $600 and sell it for twice that amount. But really, who has that kind of time and ambition to sleep in a tent out in this weather to buy one.
I'm waiting for this semester to end already. Hoping it ends successfully one, but i want it done with. I'm determined to get a lot of reading done next week while I'm Fall break. (or so I say)
I am however looking forward to my birthday next week and the Morrissey show! woohoo!!!! I need an evening of music, drinks, and friends. And that my friends, is what i shall get.

Subject:She's nobody's child...
Time:10:22 am.
Sitting here waiting for Cure Hater to come over and get a bug (a giant cricket) that has made its way into our bathtub. Damn that bug...it has set us back on our schedule today. damn that thing indeed. Still have to make it to the grocery store, Sunday Mass, the Apple Orchard, and finish some laundry. The Apple Orchard may have to wait till next weekend.
I know I haven't posted much lately, but really, what is there to post? I go to class, I try to manage being a mom/grad student/rockin' friend, I teach one class, I read read read. Well, except this weekend, where no reading has been done. Instead on Friday evening some friends came from Chicago (as well as a compañero from here, and I headed to Indy to check out She Wants Revenge. We (or I) forgot to factor the time difference between here and there so we made it right when they band took the stage. Nice venue but the crowd was lacking. It was not packed or anything but the band played well. We did chat to the singer/guitarist Justin afterward as we were making our way to the car.
Road trips are always good times.
Last weekend I did check out the Smoking Popes here in town and hung out with friends afterwards. I have reached the point in my life (or age) where I have to wear ear plugs at these shows...really I wish I had started wearing them when I was 21 instead of now. i think they should have them available at shows. I don't care if they charge people for them, they can just have them there for people who may forget to pick some up. Hearing is not a laughing matter my friends...
I'm traveling to Las Vegas this coming month for a conference and no one can go with me. I will be in Vegas without hanging out partners unless I make fast friend with other folks at the conference. It will be my first time there and I'm quite excited, BUT its my first major conference presentation and I'm quite nervous. *sigh*

Subject:Octogenarians
Time:6:08 pm.
Officer Pulls Octogenarians From Fire
Now, why can't that headline just say "Officer pulls elderly couple from fire"? It's easier to read, it doesn't make you think of orangutans, and really flows better.
Classes are in full swing which means my sanity eludes me. *sigh* sleepless nights here I come.
I do like my group of students this semester (I'm a T.A) and we can learn from one another. I have a small class which will give me a chance to get to know them all.
Let me say that if you are in town this weekend (hmmm the two of you who are from the area), do check out the Smoking Popes show Saturday night. Good times will be had...just ask the Octogenarians.

Time:8:11 pm.
Been meaning to update for a while now.
I was thinking the other day when the suspect "confessed" to the Ramsey murder, that within hours of his statements, reporters knew everything about him...including the cars he drove, every job he had, where he lived all his life, both his wives...everything. So, I was thinking that maybe I can get a New York Times reporter to find what my crush senior year in high school has been up to since 1993. I don't want to see him in person, but just know what kind of person he became. I should have kept in touch with him, he gave me his number when we graduated and told me to K.I.T. But I didnt. He told my friend Nancy that I looked "bitching" (hot) once. That made my day. So, if you know any NYT reporters, send them my way.

Time:7:17 pm.
And here I go, still not unpacked.
I arrived home Thursday night and I still havent unpacked. I am determined to clean out our closets and drawers before we unpack. I predict it will be a slow process.
Yesterday afternoon a friend called and told me to drive up to Chicago and go to check out a DJ at a club (Carlos D from Interpol). After more pressure from another friend, I packed an overnight bag and drove up to Chicago. We went to the club a little early because it was free drinks till ten so we wanted to get our drinks to even out the cover charge for the club. It was an after set for Lollapalooza so it was packed but very much worth the drive.
Having a chat with Carlos at a club is always going to be worth the drive up to Chicago (Mirai I will email you the details as only you will appreciate it).
I came back early today and I am damn tired.
Instead of cleaning the house and unpacking, I avoided it all this weekend. (Not very adult of me but heck, who cares).

Time:11:33 am.
It never fails...right when classes are set to start, something goes wrong with my funding..*sigh* right now, someone put in the system that I was getting two of the same fellowships so it canceled out all of the other funding I am suppose to receive. Not cool, because I need that check I get when classes start so I can pay bills and buy books.
hopefully it will be fixed soon.
I head back to Illinois today after a month of pure rest. Its what I needed and now I must return to reality and all that it entails. No more homecooked meals that I don't have to prepare (which maybe a good thing because I was not eating healthy here). Back to being the mom in charge of everything.
Flight leaves in a few hours. Will update when I get home.
enjoy your work day peeps!

Subject:Garlic scented perfume.
Time:1:49 pm.
I feel guilty for the lack of work i have done lately.
I have discovered I know way too much Pop Culture Trivia as I have been watching the Pop Culture Championship on VH1. Really, it is a wonder I was able to graduate from college with all the space that useless information is taking up in my small brain.
I forgot to mention my Baby X turned 7 last week. yay for her! she drives me crazy but I love that kid madly. Even if she has become Cher's youngest, and biggest fan.
We head back to the midwest on the 3rd just in time to get ready for school, which I love shopping for school supplies, and smelling all those new crayons.
See, there a few scents that I would like to bottle, and crayons is one of the. On that list, I would add garlic, sugar cane, gasoline, and a grocery store frozen food aisle (not the one's with a fridge though, but the open air ones).

Subject:deep in the heart of texas
Time:6:12 pm.
trying to find new things to do here.
i have made a point to take time to go read and enjoy some coffee a few times a week, although i am not a big fan of bookstore cafe's. (use to the neighborhood coffee shops back home)
do enjoy spending time with family but i am use to having my privacy and my friends so its hard to be in a house without my car, my room to escape to.
when i did live with my mother on and off during high school i spent a lot of time in my room listening to music and reading, not interacting much with the rest of the household. coming "home" now as an adult with children, I can't very well do that so i make the most of the situation.
actually its not bad here, just use to being on my home and i think i have gotten too old or independent to spend a month with my mother without the resources (car and extra $$$) to go out and venture out on my own.

Time:12:36 am.
i am in texas right now for a month long visit to my mothers house. i arrived yesterday while my sister who lives in florida was still here but she and her family had to leave a few hours after i arrived. my sisters and i arent in the same room often enough. our little sister who lives here had a baby a few weeks ago and let me say she is insanely adorable!
now i just have to be inspired to get some reading and writing done during the month that i am here and not just sit on my fat ass for a month.

i went to the Cubs/Sox game on Sunday with my two brothers and some other ppl and i am so glad the Cubs decided to win as I cant deal with Sox and their happiness. It is not easy being a Cubs fan when they have such a horrible season, but I still love them.

Subject:Life is a pigsty...
Time:11:26 pm.
The best mother's day gift was having my mother, stepdad, younger sister (and her daughter), and my little brother here for the weekend with us. They flew back to Texas though last night and I miss them (especially my niece who is quite the handful). My mother insisted that I participate in the ceremony for my Master's Degree. I still have to deposit my Thesis in time to have the school send me my degree by August. Really, I have to spend an insane amount of time during the next few weeks completing it, and hope that it kicks ass. Then after that I am taking the rest of the summer off to just drive the kids to games, spend time in Texas, and read. I am worn out from this semester.
Feeling a bit sad though because one of my dearest friends graduated and hence leaves this week. She has been my rock during the last 9 months and I am going to miss her. She will be two hours away, but still, it wont be the same.
more later. i must get some sleep.
i just wanted to let you all know I am alive...

Subject:turn signal
Time:7:04 pm.
turn signals have a purpose.
turn signals alert me that you, idiot driver, will be swerving into my lane.
turn signals keep me from slamming into you when you decide to stop at an intersection to turn right, potentially causing a pile up.
turn signals will save you, idiot driver, from my wrath.

semester is almost done, yay! trying to finish grading papers so i can get to my own work, which is never ending. i heard a few days ago that I will be receiving the fellowship I applied for covering my tuition and some of my expenses next year. if i do well i can have the fellowship for the next three years, and my goal is to be done with my PhD in three years.

i went last week to the she wants revenge concert in chicago and let me say it was the best show i had been to in such a long time. went out to a club after the show, got one of the guys from the band to play some front 242 and bauhaus for me, and drove back by 4am. crazy night, but much fun was had.
no fun though for the next two weeks as i must buckle down and get all my shit together.
