rain, pain, weight gain, and disdain

- i have been dieting and working out like a fiend. why? because my birthday week is chock full of food. the paternal unit is taking me out on Thursday to a buffet. and the maternal unit is making me tacos on Friday. i'm sure one or two people will make me dinner, and there are prob some more people who will take me out to dinner. don't even get me started on the birthday cake situation. i think people want me fat or in a food coma or both.

- i plan on getting shit faced on Thursday, Friday, and/or Saturday to commemorate my rapid aging. if you plan to go out with me, be prepared. it's been a while since i've really cut loose.

- it's been raining all day. i'm only happy when it rains. i hope it keeps it up so i can have a soggy birthday.

- everyone knows i'm an NIN fan, but even so it's been years since i've listened to The Downward Spiral CD. today i popped it in on the way to work, and i was pleasantly surprised by how it fit my recent angry mood. i guess i forgot how hateful an album it was.

- any avid readers out there? (i mean aside from this crap blog you're reading now.) i'm looking for some cool sea or ocean quotations. they don't have to be about the sea per se, but i would like them to have some type of sea imagery or something.

- my supervisor sent out an email asking if anyone who was attending school this semester could email him his/her school schedule. i replied asking if the school of hard knocks counted. seems it doesn't.

- i belong to a literature forum online, and someone had started a "Your Top 10 Classics Thread." i didn't put ten, but i did put a few as listed here:

"Death of a Salesman"
"Cyrano de Bergerac"
Paradise Lost
The Stranger
Midnight's Children

i didn't realize until someone commented that these are all depressing tragedies. my life sucks.

"The voice of the sea is seductive; never ceasing, whispering, clearing, murmuring, inviting the soul to wander for a spell in the abysses of solitude; to lose itself in mazes of inward contemplation. The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace."

-Kate Chopin, from The Awakening
