Happy New Year!


Interterm. Working out every day, rehearsal after dinner, party every night. Every day was an awesome day. Ashley and I were basically connected at the hip, because I didn't have any bedding I spend the majority of my nights with her. Elliott and I started dating at the end of January, and that surprised basically everybody. Even me. I was really happy though.


Godspell went down this month, and my parents and Dave came up and they all met Elliott. Parents liked him for the most part- Dave? Not so much. But I liked him and that's all that really mattered to me. Prince performed at halftime for the superbowl and it was so amazing it gave me goosebumps. Elliott shared the love for Prince and his mom sent the Purple Rain DVD...haha...that's what I remember from February...


Spring Break was good..I came home with Nicolette and Lindsay and we had a good time going shopping and hanging out and seeing Whitney and Mckinzie in Ft Worth. I missed Elliott a lot, and was happy to get back to KS to see him.


It snowed in Kansas on my 19th birthday. I had big plans to have a really long exciting night- but Elliott took me out to dinner in Salina and I ate so much and got so tired that I was in bed by 10. The next night we had more of a party, but I felt old for not sticking through my actual birthday night. I went on a choir trip in April too, and Elliott missed me so much that his roommates got sick of him talking about it. That is the Elliott I fell in love with, and I was never happier.


Graduation was so sad. I cried when I saw Sally in her gown and cap in the morning when the choir sang. She was beautiful. Elliott and I were a tiny bit late for the actual ceremony because he is such a woman when it comes to getting ready for stuff. We walked in right in front of the graduates and sat in the back. Sally and Amanda and Josh all graduated and it was reallllly sad. Sally and Amanda had a party afterwards and a lot of people went. I cried as I went around and had my picture taken with my faves. My dad got there and it was time for me to say bye. gahhh it was so sad. Dad, Elliott, and I went out to dinner before dad and I left. I hated saying bye to Elliott- but I knew I would see him over the summer, so it wasn't toooooo too bad.


Got a job at the airport. Very lame. Went to Houston and met Elliott's family and immediately loved them all. I worked a lot...hung out with Jamie as much as possible. Mom was really sick and in and out of the hospital. It was really sad.


Still working at the airport...Spend the 4th of July at Elliott's, which was really nice. It was rainy so the fireworks show was canceled...we still shot some off at a friend of his house, and they were awesome. I went back to Houston for Elliott's birthday. I went skydiving and loved it. I acquired a fake ID to ride in the stretch hummer all over Houston with him and a bunch of his friends. We convinced his mom to go too- and for the most part it was really fun. At some point over the summer I went to visit Heather in Austin. I don't remember what month that was- but I met Ernesto and Heather and I played scrabble because we are awesome. It was really fun and I was really glad to see her.


Started school. Alone. Immediately fell in love with my wonderful Roommate, who I lovingly refer to as Roommate, but really her name is Laura. Went to Houston every couple weekends, but made a couple friends and had a good time in Nac. Molly had puppies, and boy were they CUTE.


Really tired of SFgAy by now. Everything was so dirty, and I didn't feel safe anywhere. Elliott came to visit and we had fun. Roommate is still awesome and I am thankful for her. I become more and more unhappy with each passing day. Classes aren't too bad, but some of them are really overwhelming. I am really really missing my Kansas friends- as well as Elliott.


I went to a gay Halloween party here in Dallas with my sister, Annie. We dressed up as musical bums. We had finger cymbals and drums- we took requests, and wore "Will work for.." signs. One guy thought I was hilarious and told me for Halloween I should be Bald Britney. I thought about it- then ended up doing it. I would have won the costume contest had the cops not crashed the party... I spent actual Halloween in Houston though, and we had a mini party at Elliott's house. I pwned him in scrabble- the real reason we broke up, probably.


Went to Austin and partied it up with Heather. We always have a good time. It was awesome to see her and Ernesto was so generous and kind the whole time. It was really fun. I went to Houston a couple times this month too (surprise!). Thanksgiving went well with relatively no drama. The whole family was here, and it snowed. None of it stuck, but it was still lovely.


I took my final trip to Houston on December 1st or so. Elliott and I got into a really big fight, which is always fun. I left on a kind of awkward/bad note- and we ended up breaking up later that week. I am still not very happy about it, but there really isn't anything I can do that I know of- so there is not much use fretting over it (even though sometimes I just can't help it). I said goodbye to Roommate this month, and I miss her every day. I also said goodbye to Cortney (another srgay friend) and I miss her in my life too. I really miss my Kansas friends, but hopefully I will go see them next month! I left SfgAy and it has far, living at home again. I have spent the majority of my time with Heather, and I do not know what I will do when she leaves me and goes back to Austin. I have a couple jobs lined up that I will be starting in January.

All in all? On a scale of 1-10, this year was a 6. Not too great but not terrible. I met and fell in love with a whole other family in another city and they basically got snatched away from me. I have small hopes that I will see them again someday, and I put a lot into those small hopes. I fell in love with a wonderful man who changed his whole life, and seemingly his outlook on life when he moved home. I don't know what happened, but I guess it didn't work out- so in and out of a relationship this year...not my favorite thing. I got immensely closer to Heather, Aida and Alex- something I didn't know was possible- but I am so thankful for it. My mom and I's relationship fell apart and patched back up 100 times this year- and I wish it would stay patched. I changed my whole life a million times and still have little idea of what to do. I feel more unhealthy and more pessimistic than I ever have.

Tomorrow is a New Year, and although I would really like that to hold some significance, the truth is- it's just another day, just like yesterday, and just like today. Nothing will change until I make it change- but I am finding it more and more difficult to just be happy. Off to see Dr. Katzen this week and just talk some stuff over with him. Wish me luck.

And have a Happy New Year.

PS- Harry Connick Jr is lumpy and unattractive- in my opinion.

Went and saw PS I Love You tonight with Heather and Jess. Two and a half hour sob-fest is actually what it was. I did not enjoy the movie and I do not recommend going to see it, but that isn't saying it wasn't a good movie- I was very surprised because Hilary Swank wasn't manly or insanely boring, like I usually find her. She played the character of Holly better than I thought she would. If you have read this (insanely sad, but irresistible) book, you most likely understand what I am talking about in relation to Hilary Swank playing Holly...

Lisa Kudrow plays Holly's best pal, Denise- and I don't know HOW they did it, but SOMEONE or SOMEONES obviously followed me around for MONTHS without me knowing, because every DAMN line she said was either something I HAVE said, something I say REGULARLY, or something I most definitely WOULD say in those certain situations. I cannot tell you how many times both Heather and Jess looked at me in amazement as if to say "it looks like Lisa Kudrow but if I were blind I would swear it was you.." or something..

I didn't like it because it made me sad. I liked it because of reasons unknown. I will probably never watch it again, but I am glad I did. No regrets.

....Harry Connick Jr REALLY IS LUMPY and UNATTRACTIVE, and it is amusing because I don't think Hilary Swank is much to look at either (except damn, what a nice bod). However, because both of them were- well, normal looking- it made the movie more real and more comfortable, because let's face it- in real life, not everyone looks like Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston, or Halle Berry (except you, Aida

Mixed review? Maybe. But give me a break. It's late.

Can Mandy Moore do a movie and....*gasp*...NOT sing in it?!

I am watching "Because I Said So," and I have a sneaking suspicion that she may bust out in song at any given second.


aw but so far- cute movie, really.

Yeah. She sang. ugh. Pretty voice, Mandy Moore! Tired of hearing it in every movie you're in. But okay.

**EDIT 2**
Still though. Cute movie.

Back At Home...

I have a large smiley-face balloon, courtesy of Ruth and her boyfriend, Chase. I brought it home with me. Michael Jackson was terrified and turned into a spazzy-loon at the sight of it. Sara was intrigued. So I tied it to her collar, and now she's grateful because MJ keeps running away from her, instead of his usual up-her-bum attitude. Plus she looks rather merry.

I missed my doggies :o)

Boyfriend and I broke up.

Well...If You Must Know...

I am single-girl again. Ugh...

and I am hurt- but not mad. Neither of us see the end to the long distance, and so maybe one day we will find ourselves better suited for each other, but right now- elliott has problems that he needs to address, and I need to focus on school and my life really really....really sucks. But that's life sometimes.

Ah! Cristina Asked If Laura Has A Blog....

Hmm. How to answer this question.

It is on a semi-daily basis that Laura asks me how to spell a word. The most recent one was "Lacey, how do you spell definitely?" yesterday...or maybe the day before. I will shoot out the letters faster than we can blink, and our lives will go about being awesome.

In the bulk of the school year, she would procrastinate the hell out of writing any and all papers....and she had quite a few of them. So no- Laura does not blog, although she does read mine- and laugh and recall our amazing times together.

Ask me to multiply any number by 12 or anything above it and I will tilt my head, furrow my brow, and bark at you- but Laura knows math without really thinking about it. That is why she helped me with my math homework. A lot.

"Laura who is Factor and what function does he have?!"

She does math. I do english. We're a perfect match.

*Lacey Jane*
"I look like a man."
"I look like a lesbian"
"Let's just get our food to go."

-Laura and I at lunch today. Then we get into the caf:

"We're out of to go boxes." -lunch lady
*confused, dumb stare from both Laura and myself*
"So...what you're saying is....we have to eat our" -me

so we did. we snagged a miraculously empty table- and it stayed miraculously empty because well- remember what we looked like. goodtimes with laura. i will surely miss her.

You'd Think After 19 Years, One Would Be Able To Control Such Things...

So basically- Here I am back in Nac after an eventful weekend in Houston (Elliott and I will be in town THIS weekend instead of this last weekend...obviously..). I have..


Why do I do this?

I have this desire to inform you all of something quite unfortunate- and unless you can pretend I am a wee baby right now, please refrain from reading for your sanity and my pride (What pride?) (oh yeah..).

..I have a diaper rash.
(Or something like it)

Laugh it up- laughsters- but the thing is- I have been getting them all semester. I go to Houston or Dallas or Austin, and the tender raw achy part... is immediately cured and happy and not sore.

I come back and after two or three pee-pee trips....there it is again.

I swear it is not some ST(D)(I), but...

Sometimes it bleeds a tiny drop of blood when I wipe.

I am not a rough wiper. I am actually quite gentle. But it's just that the damn toilet paper in the is so cheap you can't even buy it at the grocery store. I would be glad for a 42 pack of Bath Tissue for 2.99 at Sack N Save....The toilet paper you buy to decorate the trees of the less fortunate. GLAD FOR A PACK OF THAT.

But no. We get this. Or...something like it. And because of that. I need this. Or something like it.

Cherish your Charmin, folks. Adore your Angelsoft (2ply!!), Cuddle your Cottonelle make look insane for a time- but at least you do not have one of these (or something like it).

*Lacey Jane*

"Lacey- just don't wipe with the bumpier side!"
"It has another side?!"

-Roommate and I...she's smart sometimes- so maybe I will try this feeling of the toilet paper before wiping myself...apparently, there is a bumpier side that I just may be using...

19 Days Til Christmas Break

...but really, who's counting? Laura and I returned to our faithful dorm room last night- weary, but not especially tired, and willed ourselves to unpack (okay okay- Laura always unpacks...I willed myself to follow suit), before watching a tiny bit of tv, and (in her case) surfing the web on her lovely laptop (that hasn't broken for no reason) and (in my case) reading a Jane Green book that I've already read, but it's what I had...Sleep did not come easy for me...and when Elliott called at 2ish, I answered and was talking- and noticed that every time I said something, Laura responded....She was still pretty much asleep, and it was pretty hilarious. She giggled and responded to everything I said...then she woke up fully and realized that I was on the phone and she looked a bit confused..."Oh!!! I thought you were talking to me.." hahahaha.....that generally happens to me- because when she calls someone she just goes right into conversation, and I figure she's going into conversation wtih me...usually she doesn't correct me, and just laughs when I realize that I am, in fact, an idiot.

Gee I missed her.

Math and Sociology this morning were very difficult to get to, because 1- they are at the crack of dawn (8&9) and 2- I had to tread through arctic conditions to make it to class. Sweatshirts and jeans aren't cutting it, people. But I have no other choice. I suppose later when I go work out (!!!!) I will have to *shudder* bring a gym bag and change in the locker room.

I have an insane fear of someone stealing. my. stuff. because it has happened oh- a lot- and of course I do not have a lock- what do you take me for? Someone who has had their stuff stolen a lot? Weirdos.

Anyway that is all for now...I took a really ridiculously long nap, and now I have to venture into the frigid outdoors to second floor Rusk building, and see what I can do about getting the itself out of here.

*Lacey Jane*
"Shut the hell up! The movie is on! Make me a sandwich! Bring it to me!"
-Sam...the guy we rode home with. he was funny.

when i say rode home, I mean- I drove, laura rode shotgun, and he curled up in his backseat and watched one of my movies.
we were definitely a lez couple with our son.

So- good favorite YouTube series, We Need Girlfriends, was bought by CBS! That's pretty awesome. It is basically a really hilarious series. You should look it up. I would link you- but I don't want to.

Yesterday I saw Enchanted with Cristina. Really. Freakin. Awesome. Movie. I loved it. Heather told me that when she saw it, she thought about me a lot and said I would play that part really well. was such a great movie...haha.

Anyway, xangaland...things have been uh..perplexing...these last few days. they will get better though. I am pretty confident.

....My dogs are so cute. they are fighting right now. in a playful, puppylike way. :o) So So So cute.

Cristina and I also saw Freddy (her love)'s show, Seasons Greetings. It was really really good, and nice to see a live show!! Good job, Freddy!!

Have a nice night everyone...Tomorrow I head back to Nac.....ick..

Me No Talk Good Today

....Worked a 4-12 at work. at the airport. woke up at 230. went to bed at 9 but woke up at 11 and 1 with intervals of nonsleep. I am tired. But young(!) and full of life(!) So I shall be merry and awake for the rest of the day and well into the night(!)

Really I can do this. It will be so worth it to see Cristina, Heather, Alex, and Jamie perhaps?!!

Love to all----tired, sedated love..

Aw Man...

Where did TUESDAY go??

I lose.

Monday, November 19, 2007

I'm "Home"

I have been here for less than 8 hours and already I want to leave and go anywhere else. I am so mad at my work. I called them weeks ago and told them I could work Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I called them every week to make sure they knew to put me on the schedule for those days.
I call today to get my schedule.
I am scheduled TODAY (monday), Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.

....really? Because I have school on monday AND tuesday. I informed my boss that I said I could work Wednesday on and she said "Well that's just how it worked out babydoll." Really? Because that's really unprofessional. I am very very upset with this. I wanted to work Thanksgiving. THEY TOLD ME I COULD WORK THANKSGIVING. I did NOT want to work Tuesday- and now I have lost a day of wages because I couldn't work Monday.

dsaklfj;sdlkfj it is all very very frustrating.

Also I recently (half an hour or so) got into yet another argument with my mother about Elliott. Really great. Get me the hell out of here. I wouldn't be here if I weren't working. Sounds harsh. I am not happy with my family right now. They are great people and I truly love them. That doesn't mean I can't be mad at them right now.

6 more days of this? Please no.

Being Stupid With Roommate at 4:45 am...

Roommate and I were out last night until 4am because we're cool like that. It was very rainy and icky outside last night. We get home and take nice hot showers before getting into our cozy beds and settling down to (quickly) fall asleep to the movie "Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby"....we fall into lovely, deep sleeps around 4:30.

At 4:45, we both wake up with a start. There is a really loud obnoxious noise blearing into our minds. I grab the remote as we both glare at our seemingly possessed television. I turn it off. The noise continues!!?? So I turn it back on and then off- trying again. At this point, we both realize that it is the fire alarm that we are hearing, and not the tv like we previously thought. We roll out of bed and head downstairs.
In boxers and t shirts.
In the rain.
and it is cold.
Cold cold cold.
and our hair is still wet from our showers.
So we stand across the parking lot where we're supposed to.
In a large puddle.
Huddled close to each other trying to stay warm.
When we realize how stupid we are for 1- not putting SHOES on, and 2- thinking it was the tv that was being obnoxiously loud.
20 minutes later- we are back in our dorm, realizing just how disgusting the floors (especially the stairs) are. We grab our flip flops and head BACK to the showers because EW EW EW we have Syphilis and Herpes and gonorrhea and other STD's that haven't even been discovered yet (all retrieved through our feet..duh).
By 5:15, we're back in bed- pissed off, but STD-free!
we wake up around 1230 and laugh again at our stupidity.

I sure am going to miss her.

*Lacey Jane*
"LACEY HOLD ME I'M COLD!"*hold. shiver shiver.*
it wasn't a fire drill...someone left something on that smoked and set off the fire alarm. how very awesome.

It is Keshia's birthday, and now everyone is 19!! Everyone here turned 19 within the last couple months. I will be 20 in April so I am the old one...that's pretty funnny.

Nicole says:

Because I adore board games, duh

Definitely at a game night at a neighbors room...The Midgets, Ashley and Lauren. Ashley is at work, but Fara and Kayla and Cortney are here too. They are allll SO SHORT. So I suppose I cannot call them the midgets- because I am the only tall one. We're having funnn...we just played Balderdash...One of my vair fave games. I won!! Yess!! We're about to play Cranium...funnnnnn stuff..

29 days until Christmas break! YESS! I will just be working. A lot. Probably more than a lot, actually. I have to go to the office and inform them on my decision to NOT BE HERE next semester....which office? Registrar? Probably. I will have to find it. There are so many buildings...
Hope everyone is having a good to PWN Cranium. YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

On Friday, Ruth (my sister Callie's friend who happens to be a grad student here) and I will be singing at Starbucks on North St. :o) I am excited. She taught me a song that she wrote. I think it so so so awesome to be able to write songs...Ruth doesn't read music and basically picked up a guitar and decided to learn some chords. And she can play and sing at the same time. That always really impresses me because people don't realize how difficult it is. So I was really impressed with her and she was really impressed with me because I picked up on harmonies and learned the song quickly. It was really fun to just sit there and sing.

On a completely entirely different note- have y'all ever heard of Jodi Picoult? Elliotts sister, Allison, highly recommended her to me and she let me borrow 3 of her 10000 Jodi books. I read "19 Minutes" on Sunday, "The Pact" on Monday and Tuesday, and "The Tenth Circle" today. Really really good books. The first two are terribly sad and I warn you that if you have any resemblance of a soul (oxymoron? Resemblance of a soul?) you will most likely cry your eyes out.* They are all crimes that need to be solved...They are almost mystery books, but they are also really dramatic...stuff that you don't want to read about, but once you start for some reason you don't stop because you have to know the outcome (A Boy Called It, anyone?).

Allison also let me borrow a book called "Something Borrowed"...all these chickbooks are going to make me soft (hahahah because I am a hardass, duh)...but I forgot how much I like to pour myself so far into books that it makes me forget everything that is going on around me. I have to take a break from Jodi Picoult until I can borrow more books from Allison...after 3-4 days of reading strictly her novels I am noticing her favorite phrases ("shaking like a leaf" being one of them) and how funny it is that so much personality can be put into books. Had none of the books had her name on them and I read a couple other books of the same genre as these- I probably still could have picked out these three as being written by the same person. For some reason I found this interesting... I don't think I have really noticed that before with any other writer. I guess it doesn't hurt that in a couple of the books she used the same town or the same defense

Anyway, thought I would throw that out to internetland.

*Lacey Jane*
"Roommates computer doesn't automatically spell check my xanga like my computer did. No wonder she can't spell."
-me. in my head. just now.

...and then I spell checked it. Other than the proper names and the words "y'all," "hardass," "chickbooks," and "internetland"- I spelled everything correctly. YES!

*this will definitely be true if you are a- a menstruating woman or b- depressed at all during the time of reading

Roommate and I watch Arthur on a routine basis. Go ahead. Laugh.

Basically my family made me angry. I know that this happens a lot with most people. It is not a usual thing with me. I usually get along pretty well- more than average I would believe- with my entire family. Three out of four of the people that live in my house right now severely angered me in the last few days. Only my dad is excluded from this. I will not go into much detail no matter how much I want to, because even though I blocked her account- I know my mom can still read this, and I don't know who else in my family still reads this, and who wants to cause more drama??

I was going to go home this weekend. But I probably won't now. I will go home for Thanksgiving break, and work as much as I can. I will come back to school and finish the couple weeks left before the semester is finally over. I have been searching for internships for next semester, but have found none that I can do, because I don't have a car. I will figure next semester out. I need about 10 more credit hours to be a junior, so even if I just take 10 hours next semester at some community college and get a job somewhere close to wherever I will be living, I won't be behind in school and maybe I can save enough money to buy a car and go to St. Thomas or some other small-school-big-city combo.
I will do my best to work hard when I am in school and save up money, and maybe I won't have to move back home again. This is all pretty unlikely- because saving up money to buy a decent car is virtually impossible. Guess we'll see what happens.

This Weekend Was Great- And Then...

Elliott and I did indeed go help his friend move in (elliott and rick emptied the uhaul while Britney and I er...sat in the driveway...). It was so much fun and I am really glad we went (even though Rick moved to China- or somewhere else equally far away..).

Coming back to Nac, or even going home from Elliott's house is always really hard for me. I hate doing this long-distance. It is no good, people. But at the same time- I know I just have to be patient and things will work out. We don't really fight that much- it's just difficult to do this. I don't think a lot of people understand our relationship, and I think I complain a lot about it I guess- but I really shouldn't, because honestly- I am so happy when I actually get to be with him- and so sad when I have to leave

Off to mope and take a shower and throw myself the grandest of pity parties. Roommate isn't home from Dallas yet- but when she gets here- my pity party will have to turn into HER BIRTHDAY PARTY!! Because she's finally 19 TODAY and I am glad I get to see her and hug her on her Birthday So Happy Birthday Roommate!! (but not yet. because remember- i have to mope and be pathetic).

Lovely Weekend

Really! My title has 0 sarcasm! I love being here in Sugar Land with Boyfriend. He's a funny guy. Yesterday he woke up from a nap and was very very grumpy....thus:E: do you want to go to taco bell?me: I hate taco bell. you know that.E: *sigh* *rubs eyes like a small child*...hey let's go to taco I HATE taco bell. I won't go.E: Let's try this again.... Do you want to go to taco bell?me: ....E: *groans/lays back down* the light hurts my *turns off light*E: NOOO!!!!!! He's just like a baby. An annoying one. haha...we went to taco bell but only because we ALSO GOT ICE CREAM on the way home!!!yayyyayayayyY!! i love ice cream, and so it is easy to manipulate me using it.And I can't wait for him to get home from work. I think today we are going to go help Rick4Life move into his new house. That should be fun and interesting and drunken. More update later perhaps..*Lacey Jane*...I was going to put this drunk voicemail i got last night for the quote- but it will have to wait- it is kind of long...let's just say- Bald Britney has a fan- and her fan has my phone number.

Visitors and defining awesomeness

There are people in town right now in Sugar Land. Besides me. They are interesting. Really that is all that should be said about that, haha. Elliott is home from work and taking a shower and then we are going to do something awesome. Don't ask me what yet because I don't know but I ensure you it will be awesome. In Kansas we would sit on his front porch on pretty days, reading.That was pretty awesome. We may have to do something along those lines. Elliott has a lot of interesting new books. Did you think I meant awesome as in going out and partying? Because sometimes- awesome is nothing but sitting with Elliott, reading a good book.Go ahead and say it. I am 73 years old. I know.*Lacey Jane*"I could get hit by a bus and still look better than that."-Allison. What a hilarious bitch.

It is true. I am in Sugar Land

Thanks Heather :o) Yes, sorry Cristina, love, but I am in Sugar Land to spend my 4 day weekend (I love when Friday classes are cancelled!!!) with my beloved boyfriend and his loving family.lovelovelovelovelove. A lot of that. Obviously. I got here last night at about 6:30. I was supposed to get here at 4, but the guy who gave me a ride never ever lets that happen. Instead we get lost. Or we run out of gas and he thinks it would take less time to go to his house first. I assure you, audience, it wouldn't. This results in me being grumpy- but pretending to be happy- because I only gave him 4 dollars for gas money... and generally- That's not very much.Elliott is at work now..So I am off to raid his fridge and play with his dogs. He currently has four of them...two puppies left from a litter of 6, and the parent-doggies. *Lacey Jane*"prrrrrrrrrrrrr"-Dr. CoCo Nutt, who cuddled with me (on top of me) for well over an hour this morning- resulting in me REALLY NEEDING TO PEE- but not really wanting to move...because really she's so sweet when she's sleeping.

New Southpark nights are my fave

...and that makes me sad...but in a happy...happy way. Yesss!! New South Park!! Hahaha it is already hilarious..

whew....ANYWAY- YES I did go work out today. For a long time.

And then I came back and had a bowl of cereal.

HEALTHY SMART START ANTIOXIDANT CEREAL!! And later- Roommate and I may or may not do lunges and other terrible, scary things that I will not mention.
Won't lie kids. It was cold today. Very cold. Brrr..I would tell you the temperature- but I don't have my wonderful laptop anymore. It is temporarily dead. So I guess we could say it is in a coma. But then I feel bad saying that, becuase that is like me calling someone in a coma "temporarily dead" and that just sounds awful.
Yes- I did make a reference to my laptop as being a person...because, well, to me? It so is.

HAHAHhahahahahHAHhahah oh Southpark...your hilarity distracts me so...

Roommate went to the movies tonight. I miss her so. She needs to get back soon and tell me to stop eating. And then ask for crackers. Last night we shared a shameful ritz-crackers moment.
This entry is so pointless. I can't help it...Southpark has me all entranced and stuff.
Oh but hey! Elliott says he will have a new video up on YouTube soon...He hasn't had a new one in awhile. Maybe I will link you. If I like it. And then everyone can see my boyfriend in all his wisdomosity(ish)(maybe).

Really I love you all- I just cannot multitask when something so worthwhile (Southpark) is on something so wonderful (the tv*)
*Lacey Jane*
" out for that bug.."*nod*-Laura and I. Today. What a pal.
*I would just like to say that during the summer I watched a collective 4 hours of television. I would even say it was less than that- but just in case I am er...rounding up. But somehow here at school I watch a LOT. MORE. TV. It is cheap, and a nice distraction from homework**.

**I have a psych paper due tomorrow that I am about halfway done with...but xanga calls...

You should be proud of me!!!!!!!!!!! And then very...very ashamed

Last night, I did indeed go work out. Hoorah! Tonight as well- for longer than normal. So I hurt. I hurt so good...And then I had a bowl of cereal. Cranberry Almond Crunch. I believe I have blogged about it before and how much I adore it. I still do. Adore it. A lot. Mmmm.
Today was uneventful. Classes and lunch with roommate and walk with roommate and such. It is always amusing walking with her. It is almost like walking with Aja, but Roommate is just a TAD bit shorter, and for some reason, that tad bit seems like sooo much of a difference. I feel like an amazon woman named GRAUGG, stomping along with my midget pal, Skippy*. But it's amusing and fun.

Oh- and today, we were on our way to dinner. Me on the right and her on the left. DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF ME we spot a HUGE TERRIFYING BUG (I think it was a grasshopper?). It wanted to pounce on me and tear off my face with its razor-sharp claws..
In a fit of insane FEAR- I GRAB Roommate (or...Skippy*..) and attempt to THROW HER into the PATH OF TEH MON5TORR!!! Surprisingly, with strength I didn't know she possessed, she stood her ground, and I snapped out of it. Then we laughed. A lot. And she was offended, and I was sorry, but it really was funny. She even saw it first, and pointed it out in order to save me from stepping on it, or just to keep me aware that it was there. How do I thank her? I try to kill her. This place does wacky things to my brain.
Oh man.

Is it really only Tuesday?

*Lacey Jane*
"I'm never going to forget that you know."
sorry roomie...
*Roomate isn't, nor will she ever be (uness under the influence of alcohol or under the impression that she may soon get Jack In The Box) Skippy. But it sounded like a shortish name.

Still don't have my computer....

So this entry will also suck. I miss my laptop a lottt!

Watching "My Best Friends' Wedding"

Such an awesome/sick movie.

Also um- My boyfriend has a cell phone. He hasn't had one since August. What's better? He knows how to USE it. Which is really really awesome. He called me yesterday. Three times. It was strange. I was not used to hearing his voice that often. Pretty cool.

I really have nothing to say. Roommate and I were terrible today and went to Jack in the Box. Sick. And delicious. And I napped for 3 hours. But because roommate can't go work out with me right now- I will probably (definitely) just go to bed, unless I feel disgusting in the next couple hours and just go work out anyway (optional-but not likely).
still figuring out my life. But one thing I did think about today- the world 25-30 years ago? Different than it is today. In lots of ways. Whodathunkit?
*Lacey Jane*
"hooooo-ked on...pah for meh!"

The Cowboys Game...

Is on!! And they're playing sooo well tonight.


Weekend in Austin=Awesome.

Back in Nac=ew.

Thinking about moving to Austin next semester.

I have so many options and yet I feel so limited.

I will figure this out.


*Lacey Jane*"Why does music make the world go round?! Because without music, the world would Bb!!"

Short N Sweet

Greetings everyone-Hope all is well in lives everywhere in Xangaland on this beautiful Saturday. It is beautiful here anyway- I don't know about where you are. I am writing to you after playing scrabble with Heather. I love that game. Probably a lot. No- definitely. Yes. Definitely a lot. We have lots of fun things planned for tonight! It should be exciting. Today we wandered around Wal*Mart and then ate sandwiches. She's showering right now and then I am going to curl her hair and we are going to do girly things. Then it will be Saturday Night. And if you don't know what happens on most Saturday nights when you're in college- then you, my good friend, can go ahead and use your imagination. I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!! More interesting blogs to come, I'm sure.*Lacey Jane*"We're so alike.""And yet......unbelievably different.""oh GOD yes."-Heather and I

Last minute post from AUSTIN!!!

Hello Lovaaahs!!I blog to you from lovely Austin, TX!!! I love Austinnn!! I am here visiting my BEST FRIENDDDD EVER!!! I know people say that a lot- but really...we've been best friends for 16 years, and I really cannot see our friendship this will be a quickie, but sometimes quickies are best.The Costume Contest::Everyone. Voted. For. Me. Bald Britney.But then the cops came and busted the party before we could really officially have the Announcements and whatnot. But I assure you, Xangaland- I won. Out of 400 people. So there.Also- getting around on Halloween went a little something like this:::I get dressed and go downstairs.I go outside and the 5-6 guys sitting out there fall silent (how often do bald chicks walk out of Hall 14???)."What's going on tonight and when are we leaving?""um..We're going to the A Frame if you want to go with us""Great. I'll be ready in 10 minutes."hahahahhaso we get to the A Frame.I find a DD named Patrick."let me know before you leave. I want to go with you."and I do. When the cops came.We head to Whataburger.I find another group of people."who's sober?"*someone raises their hand*"can I have a ride to Hall 14 when you're ready to leave?"*nod*great.Riding with strangers all night:: Dangerous, but essential in this case. And hey- I'm good.*Lacey Jane*"ernieweighs....(6 pounds?)"-An inside joke from when we were um...8? maybe?

Bald Britney

Last night.

Are there really words to describe how awesome it was?

*yes...there are...duh*

Last night had its bad point (really do I ask for too much when I request one phone call a day? I obviously do)

Other than that- It was so fun.
I began getting ready around 7. I crafted a censor sign using felt and paint and left it in front of the fan to dry quickly. I took a shower, avoiding getting my hair too wet, and then I was really to begin the balding process.
Step by step pictures to come later when I have my laptop back.
Becoming Bald-Britney in 10 Easy(ish) Steps:::::
Step 1: Realize I have no bobby pins and go down the hall asking for contributions to the Bald Britney Bobby Pin Fund. Return to my room with 6 bobby pins. Using gel, a pink headband, and said bobby pins- successfully arrange my hair to ensure as few bumps as possible.
Step 2: Using copius amounts of spirit gum (really nasty but efficient stuff) on my neck and forehead, apply bald cap. Freak out for a couple seconds because ewwww...I'm bald!!...Realize you can see the pink headband through the very light-tan cap, and hope the make-up with cover it.
Step 3: Sit on Roommates computer while she paints my bald cap using some old Loreal base make-up that is now too light for me, and my base-brush.
Step 4: Stand in front of fan, bent over, feeling rather...falic.
Step 5: Sit on Roommates computer while she dusts my head with powder. Repeat step 3. Repeat step 4
Step 6: Repeat the first sentence of step 5
Step 7: Marvel at how weird it is.
Step 8: Apply the too-light makeup all over face, neck and ears. Take pictures because I REALLY LOOK BALD AT THIS POINT.
Step 9: Apply rest of make-up and don the Britney dress.
Step 10: Safety pin the censor sign to the proper place over some nude colored underwear. Create make-shift baby out of a balloon and a pillowcase. Put on 4 inch heels that are a size and a half too small, and VIOLA!

By 9:45 I, Britney Spears, was ready for a night out to flash my nether-reigions and let my kid drive (He was DD- go figure)

*Lacey Jane*"Lacey???""It's Britney, bitch.."
(check back tomorrow to hear about the costume contest! And how I got around that night without owning a car or having many friends)

Because I know how you people adore the unpleasant stuff....

Taking a shower is supposed to be a really joyous experience. You get to be CLEAN! and have some ALONE TIME! and you get to SMELL NICE! and there's HOT WATER! involved and you can SING!...That's how it used to be for me anyway. I don't know about you guys- but I LOVE TAKING SHOWERS! Most of the time. But not here. Here. In Hall 14. Taking a shower is strenuous, uncomfortable, nasty and frightening, and inevitably you walk (carefully) out of the (tiny) stall dirtier than you were previous to showering.Here's why. Because if you touch the walls or (God forbid) the SLIMY shower curtain- you feel the immediate need to wash the area that has touched the aforementioned areas. Therefore, you must be VERY careful in the shower to not touch these things, but this is difficult- as the stalls are about [_] <--this wide. Luckily(ish), the two end stalls are a bit larger than the three middle ones. soooo the whole shower row looks like this: [__][_][_][_][__]It doesn't seem too terrible if you can snag an empty end-shower. Which I usually do (or I just don't shower at that time)TONIGHT HOWEVER- Obnoxious things happened necessitating an entire xanga entry. Those obnoxious things went a little like this.... I firstly went to the shower here: [__][_][_][_][x_] This is usually the shower I shower in- as the other end-shower smells funny...Really. It does. Different from the others. However, tonight, my usual shower was occupied. Not by a person, but by a used tampon. It smugly looked up at me like "hahahha...i'm just a little bloody, waterlogged tampon, but I got the GOOD SHOWER."Damn tampon. So, my choices were either to attempt a small-shower, or go to the funny smelling one, which has more room, therefore, more comfort.Of course I chose roomy and comfortable.Starting the shower is difficult. I was always taught righty-tighty lefty-loosey, therefore it would only make sense in my mind that turning the faucets to the left would turn them on.Oh no no no, not in Hall 14. THAT WOULD BE TOO EASY.So here we are, 2.5 months into living here and I still have difficulty turning on the shower...Actually, turning them on isn't so difficult, but it is adjusting the temperature that gets very confusing. After struggling for a bit, I get a decent water temp and cautiously continue on with my shower.Of course, I am joined within minutes by Girl2, who ops for the other-end-shower with Sir Bloody Tampon. Good for her I suppose. I would have probably left and come back later...but she's braver than I, obviously.I know I am rattling on- but I have lots to talk about, and I can't start the movie until roommate gets off the phone with her boy. He loves her lots so they chat for miles. Elliott and I are lucky if our phone conversations last more than 5.7 minutes...anyway- back to the shower...Girl2 (who I have respect for) turns on her shower, and instinctively I step out of the way. This instinct also kicks in when someone flushes the toilet, or uses the sink (or claps their hands! or scratches their nose! or blinks!). You have about .9 seconds to move or you will be burned. Or frozen. But it will never tell you which. After Girl2 adjusts her water temp, I readjust mine, and continue on.This is when it gets weird/annoying/obnoxious (in my opinion). ... Girl3 comes in.Now, Xangaland- if you were in Girl3's position, which shower would you choose? a, b, or c?[ME][_a][_b][_c][G2]Of course you would. Any respectful individual would go with B. Unless there was a used tampon in it, or fecal matter, or puke (all have been spotted), why would you not go in B???Oh no. Instead- Girl3 chooses stall A.Now, audience (if anyone is still reading..)...Let me please express to you my distaste at having unknown Girl3 RIGHT NEXT TO ME when we shower. We're really close together...and her rinsing water splashes on my feet.What is REALLY nasty- is that as soon as she's done adjusting her water temp (Girl2 and I follow suit-), she pees. In the shower.Which...okay...lots of people do it- I have done it before, sometimes it cannot be helped..but think of what I said earlier.Her Rinsing Water Splashes On My Feet.I smell the ammonia/pee smell...I have to say- It is difficult for me to stand the smell of someone else's urine if it is a strong smell...if it is a normal-pee smell, it really doesn't bother me...but for some reason..Girl3 had putrid-smelling-pee that PROBABLY splashed onto my feet...I am, at this point, both outraged and sickened..My flip-flops and my feet have to be re-soaped (as far away from her stall as possible) and I haul ass out of the shower.I checked. No fecal matter. No puke. No bloody tampon. Just a nice stall B, all ready and waiting.Oh but no. Girl3 decides that she feels the need. the need to pee. on my foot. like a bitch.Soooo basically that's my story.Really I am sparing you most of the details, and I am not even going into the more disgusting details of the showers- let alone the bathrooms- of Hall 14.please, everyone...Do not take your showers for granted...lay down in them and marvel at the fact that you are not obtaining various STD's! *Lacey Jane*"why put a quote when no one comments or even reads me?"-my xanga...she's such a pessimist.

Because Halloween is my second favorite holiday....

I LOVE HALLOWEEEN!!! Don't ask me what my plans are because they are unestablished right now... But I STILL CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS WEEKEND!! Because in college- you can't really celebrate Halloween ON Halloween, unless it falls on a Friday or a Saturday.I mean- you CAN celebrate it, and you generally WILL- but you can't if you want to make it to class the next day without a crippling hangover. However- I AM SO LUCKY!!! Because over the weekend I went home, and Annie and I went to a Gay Halloween Party(!!) at Newports in Dallas. It was very very...very fun. We dressed as bums- because really we decided to go that same day, and therefore had no time to be incredibly clever...Annie's sign said "Will Play For Booze Foob" and mine said "Trabajo por tacos" as I was a hispanic bum. I had a bongo drum strapped to me and annie had a tambourine. We both were equipped with a pair of finger cymbals, and we took requests. It was quite fun.But what is sooo awesome about this is THIS WEEKEND WAS NOT EVEN HALLOWEEN WEEKEND!!! So I still have TWO more times to dress up for Halloween!!! Originally I was going to be Tina Turner, because who doesn't love Tina Turner (rhetorical- if you don't- please don't inform me)...However, as Annie and My-New-Gay-Friend intelligently pointed out, Tina is classic. I could really be Tina any year for Halloween. And so, ladies and...other...ladies who read my blog (because I don't think guys read xangas?)- this year for Halloween, I will be gracing someones party/bar/club/who knows dressed as Bald Britney- because she'll go out of style after this year.on a side note::::Isn't it awesome to see people that you once were SO CLOSE TO after four years?!it really really really is.just saying.HAPPY HALLOWEEN-TIME EVERYONE!!! It is so excitinnnggg*Lacey Jane*Dave: I'm going trick or treating this year.Lacey: what are you going to be?Dave: Blacula: Draculas soul brother.Lacey: of course you are.

I really do try to see the best in things, honestly...

It just doesn't work out sometimes though. I e-mailed my professors 3 days ago explaining my current state of unhealth (I know. It's not a word. Shut it). Yes, my professors are very very busy and they have lots of work to do and they have lives and everything.. But out of the 5 professors I e-mailed- ALL 5 GOT THE E-MAIL, and only ONE wrote me back. ONE. The one that I am pretty sure doesn't even know what I look like, because he teaches my biggest class wrote me back and told me he hopes I'm feeling better soon. SO THANK YOU DR. SEGADY, for the acknowledgment. In the ONE CLASS I have him for, he has 260 other students to deal with, and he still found time during his horrid busy day to write back a short but appreciated e-mail. I'm actually pretty mad that I didn't get a response from all of them. I hate to be the "At My Old School" girl, but AT MY OLD SCHOOL, when I wrote to all my professors telling them I was sick- EVERY SINGLE ONE responded within a day or two, and a couple of them even CALLED ME a couple days later to make sure I was feeling better. I miss that. A lot.*Lacey Jane*"Miss you lots! Why aren't you in my life?"-Shane Reif....I LOVE shane reif. he's catholic and we were going to get married.*sigh*

Because I know you need a health update....

Let's go back almost EXACTLY one year ago and check out a couple entries:
Monday, October 23, 2006
very very...very sad.
i'm so sick.not even the doctor knows whats wrong.people that i love hate throat is closing up.i cant go back to school til im more healthy And then a couple weeks or so later:
Monday, November 06, 2006 have mono. im fatigued and whatever. thats just my life. also im behind in classes because i missed three days of school. once again- my life. GUESS WHAT XANGALAND?!?!?!*imagines everyone guessing* Oh! oh I heard someone say it...who said it?? ...someone in the back...Yeaaaaahhhpp.I am having what is commonly referred to as a RELAPSE. I would like to refer to it as just...MY LIFE. It is really no fun. It may sound like fun- the whole...sleeping 12-15 hours a day thing- but IT'S NOT, LET ME ASSURE YOU. It is VERY difficult to make it to my 8 and 9am classes, although my 2pm shouldn't be bad, UNLESS I HAVE THE OVERWHELMING URGE TO SLEEP!Do you know how to get over mono? Take a couple aspirin and Rip Van Winkle your life away.Because antibiotics don't help. GOODNIGHT XANGA-XANGALAAAANNNDD!!!! *blows out candle with a raspberry**Lacey Jane*"I hope someone notices my reference to "Hook" in the last line I wrote"-Me. Just now. In my head.**EDIT** A Letter To My Professors::Good Afternoon, I am writing this e-mail to explain my frequent absences of last week and this week. I apologize for any inconvenience they have caused, and I want to assure you that I am doing and will be doing my very best to stay caught up. Last year I came down with a very bad case of Mono. I got it from over-exerting myself, but once you get it, you never get rid of it. It seems I am having a relapse. I sleep for 13-17 hours a day, and have a fever that I struggle to keep under control. I have a sore throat and a headache, and it is very difficult for me to get to class. Antibiotics do nothing for Mono, and the only thing I can do is continue to drink plenty of fluids and sleep as much as my body needs. It is very awful but I ask you to please understand that I WILL go to class if I can. I am not one to miss class for a bad reason. I am just a really unhealthy individual. When I had mono last year, my doctor encouraged me to drop out of school for the remainder of the semester, because all my organs were enlarged, and I was in danger. I didn't drop out then, and I won't drop out now. I just wanted to explain a little of what's going on with me, and I will see you in class ASAP. Thank You, Lacey Smith I'm such a good student.

Because Cristina asked of my living situation....

Alas I DO in fact live in a dorm hall. Not just any dorm hall- a dorm hall SO DISGUSTING that my mother called the health department today after I updated her on new disgusting facts. Shall we take a look at a few of the nasty happenings in Hall 14?- The toilets on my floor N E V E R work. You think I am exaggerating? I have to go downstairs frequently because every toilet is overflowed. You might think this is because us terrible gross girls don't know how to use an appropriate amount of toilet paper, or maybe that we flush inappropriate things down the toilet- but, just to clarify- that might be 10% of the problem. The other 90% is that the toilets are old and the plumbing is simply bad. sometimes, even just peeing and flushing a minuscule amount of TP down will result in an overflowed toilet- so go ahead and use your imagination as to what horrible germs are flying around the bathroom that myself and 50 some-odd other girls are expected to use.- Our lobby has fleas. This is a slightly understandable problem, because sometimes that happens- HOWEVER- our WHOLE ENTIRE BUILDING has been sprayed- and the lobby has been sprayed, powdered, bombed, what-have-you- on MANY DIFFERENT OCCASIONS- and this is barely the what? fifth? sixth week of school? And yes, ladies and gents- we STILL have "pests."This is just unacceptable to me...Those are probably the two biggest factors going into the abominable conditions in which I am forced to live on a daily basis. Everyone is either sick- getting over being sick- or about to get sick, and some people scratch their head and wonder why! Isn't it obvious? I don't think I have been 100% healthy since arriving here and being exposed to this trashiness.They were supposed to tear this building down over the summer and rebuild it. They didn't get around to it. Great.So there you have it, Cristina...I did not previously know my roommate- we were randomly selected and matched up, and they could not have done a better job. Laura is wonderful and we are a good match. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that we are both from big obnoxious families... so we just understand.I had a superbly wonderful weekend away from Nac. I will update on that another day, perhaps.*Lacey Jane*"You are. I just know it."-Chelsea.thanks man- you're a pal.

Because I just don't get things, sometimes...

As I sit here, enjoying my dinner of Ritz crackers dipped in ranch dressing, I ponder the insanity of whoever decided that our caf should close at 7pm. That is the time I would like to eat my dinner. Not the time I would like to finish it. In all actuality, I would like to eat my dinner at 8:30, or 9. It is very very impractical to close the cafeteria down at 7pm. No one appreciates it, least of all myself. However, I will survive--- I have Ramen...and although I do not really appreciate the saltiness...the noodles alone are (though tasteless) enough to suffice...Tonight I have tried to liven up the blandness by adding is still heating up* but when it's finished, I can eat it and go to sleep- which sounds nice... Roommate and I are sick. She's having stomach problems and I am having fever/throat/head problems. BONUS- I have a choir concert tomorrow! Don't worry- all of us are sick, and none of us know the music- so this should be one big embarrassment for us and our choir director. It's his fault for trying to make us learn 7 (some of them RATHER DIFFICULT) songs in just shy of two months. With only 2 rehearsals a week- really this doesn't happen. Especially when our soprano section is less-than-weak, and our alto section just won't blend."It's not over til the fat lady sings"Imagine the fat lady's's pretty, right? Operatic, and deep.NO GOOD IN A CHOIR THOUGH, GIRL WHO STANDS ON MY LEFT!!!!!!BLEND, altos! BLEND! they even know the meaning of the word?very depressing. I miss Dr. Mahraun (choir director at previous school)goodnight...ramen+pepper=eh..not too bad.*Lacey Jane*"The dream of your body so fine your gorgeous green eyes gazing in mine. That's fuckin gold, and despite bein bold it's a dream I'll hold."-Dave's friend, Jeffrey...what a stud. Good try, man.*We aren't allowed to have microwaves in my room- and the microwave provided in the lobby is always filthy and probably has its own array of STD' I heat up water in my coffee pot, pour it over the noodles/oatmeal/life/whatev, and put a paper towel over it for a few minutes to allow it to heat... sure the majority of the noodles are a bit..uh..chewy, but it gets the job done, and i dont even have to get up.

Traditions and winning 10 dollars...

5-0 The Cowboys. Are 5 and 0. I was raised to love the Cowboys. When I was younger- I hated football season. It was confusing. The adults would sit around screaming at the tv. Eating chips and dip, making no sense to me.Often times we would all go outside after the afternoon games and play two-hand-touch in the street with all the neighbors. This part was fun. I liked going outside and playing. Still do, sometimes. But oh man. The whole watching-the-game thing was just not my style. But Oh MAN I GET IT NOW! I LOVE watching the Cowboys games. Getting into it. Eating chips and dip. WINNING 10$!!!! Breaking out into HIVES when we were down the WHOLE GAME UNTIL THE LAST 18 SECONDS! Seriously. Awesome. Game. Very. Scary. And. Fun. And tomorrow? Tomorrow myself and some fellow college children will be making our way to the intermural fields to play a game of football ourselves. My idea. Some things will never. ever. change.And I like it that way *Lacey Jane**justin does a silly dance when the Bills score*"Justin! I didn't know you liked men!"-me, because i am HILARIOUS.

Because Cristina called my bluff....

I really just love the following movies:PrimeWedding DateBoth have been watched in the last 24 hours. Both were adored. I may be going to Sugar Land on Friday. Hopefully I will be able to convince Elliott to watch one of them. He really hates chick flicks. But sometimes he will watch them with me- sometimes he will like them (How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days) and sometimes he will completely despise them (The Holiday)...But anyway...hmmm update update... Graham is no longer our third roommate. This is very sad news. But he pulled a huge asshole move- told Laura they were going "too fast" and then got a girlfriend that he is actually claiming less than a couple days later. Still- I miss him. I am tan and thin(ning)...The new 24mil dollar gym is simply AMAZING. I have been going every day since Monday (soo yeah- three days) and I plan on going at least 5 times a week. I stay for about an hour, and I am feeling pretty great about it. It makes me happier to know I am being healthier. I miss Coco Nutt a lot. *Lacey Jane*"When one knows the world is watching- One does what one must. Some minor adjustments, darling. Not for my vanity- but for humanity..."-Georgette from Oliver and Company. Voiced reeeally well by Bette Midler. GREAT song. Hilarity.

AWESOME. Then not.

DEFINITELY found a ride to Subway.Then got TWO FREE FOOT LONGS and a DRINK FOR FREE Because I BASICALLY ROCK. Friendliness really pays off, you know? *Does a funky Subway Dance**Lacey Jane*said the sandwich maker to the cashier: "Hey- She's good."as in, "SHE DOESNT HAVE TO PAY!"yessssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!

I went and worked out for an hour.GO ME!and on the way back to my dorm- a small but noticeable bug flew into my eye.and because that is just NOT ENOUGH-it BIT ME ON THE EYE AREA- which results in GREAT PAIN and LOTS OF WETNESS which is REALLY DISGUSTING.*Lacey Jane*"REALLY GOD?!!?!? BECAUSE I THOUGHT WE WERE HOMEBOYS!!!"-me when a BUG BIT MY EYE.

Because that's just my life...

The White Trash Party has been pushed back to NEXT weekend, because this weekend is Family Weekend, and people don't want to be hungover around their parents..or something... I don't know...I think that is pretty lame. Don't get wasted if you don't want to be hungover...Very simple. I can't go next weekend because I will be salsa dancing with Heather (very excited), so I really wish it was this weekend insteaddd!!! So now this weekend I have basically nothing planned to do, which makes me want to go to Sugar Land again. Although that is entirely possible- my Elliott finds it unnecessary for me to see him as much as I can, which very basically hurts my feelings. I understand that he wants me to stay here and make friends, but I have made plenty of friends- I just want to see him. What I don't understand is why he doesn't seem to want to see me. Oh well, guess we can't all have that kind of guy...whatever. My little brother just used the words "extra" "super" and "cute" all in one sentence. This would be okay if the sentence went something like "I saw this chick who had extra large breasts and super long legs and damn she was cute" or something equally annoyingly disgustingly male, but no...the sentence was "I'm sending you a picture of my ballet teachers new baby because she is extra super cute"....which is also all right, because I love Dave just the way he is. Didn't get my mythology exam back today either. "I will e-mail your scores later on this afternoon" says my very dry-humored Steven Wrightesque professor... I have not received anything yet, but have moved on to worry about my algebra exam I have at 8 in the morning because 1- who can concentrate on algebra at 8 in the morning enough to actually pass an exam and 2- why is it when i study algebra for more than 3 consecutive minutes all the numbers start blurring together and I get this sensation similar to what you feel when forks are scraped across glass dinnerware...*shudder*.... Still talking about this baby with Dave... He has said a few more things I feel I should point out...
Lacey: what's her name?
Dave: ugh <----------------------ugh?
Dave: riley.
Dave: riley madison something
Lacey: whyy is that her name?
Dave: i dont know
Dave: i mean the girl is gonna be a dancer surely
Dave: and riley madison
Dave: is not a dancing name <-----notice the dramatic pause between "riley madison" and "is not.."
Dave: its the name for a butch chick
Lacey: why can't her name be Sophie or Elizabeth
Dave: ew sophie?
Lacey: or Maria
Lacey: well cmon...RILEY?!
Dave: and double ew elizabeth <-------------double ew?
Dave: maria is ok
Lacey: Julia
Dave: thats a good oneThis is just not a regular conversation one has with ones 17 year old brother...It's all good though....But I did just receive a picture message on my cell phone from his friend Ashley of his hair up in a ponytail sporting side bangs and everything....He is definitely the prettiest girl ever..Goodnight all- hope your day was swell.*Lacey Jane*
Lacey: you're the prettiest girl ever.
Dave: yeah probably
