Scarleth's mom passed away. I went to LA as soon as I found out to be with the babies.
It's been an emotional weekend.
I wish I could make her son eulercito smile like he used to.

KENDALL BARBIE: This brassy-haired Barbie has a pair of her own high-heeled Kenneth Cole Slip Ons with one broken heel from the time she chased Beer-Gut Ken out of Hialeah Barbie's house.

KEY BISCAYNE BARBIE: With frosted blonde hair, clear manicure, light tan, she's perfect in every way. Comes with a convertible jaguar and yatch. We don't know who Ken is because he's always away hunting or golfing.

These Barbies must be purchased as packs and are always seen mooching from free-spending Deep Pockets South Beach Ken.
Wow. So much to write about. Where to start.
Sleepover was so much fun... the best was running down to the marina with Nicole, Laura and Stephanie to watch the sun rise over the ocean on my birthday. It was so beautiful... and we were so dead. Stephanie and I stopped at a bench while the other two kept running. I have our rambling comments on video. "Where do you think they're going?" "Far." "Yeah. Minus close." "Doesn't the sun look like a big flashlight?" "You know it's like the sunset. Just backwards."
I absolutely positively adore the people I work with. I can't even put it into words. Especially Nicole. She and I get along SO WELL. I mean we're like the same freakin' person. On Thursday I was in the lab with Laura and Stephanie and I said, "I'm so bored! I wish Nicole would get here and entertain me!" and that EXACT SECOND she walked in. We all gasped and then broke out laughing. She didn't get it. Then today she was driving to Gainesville and I figured she was bored cause I was bored sitting in the lab with Joe so I called her and got her machine. I was about to leave a message when I saw she was calling me. So I figured she was just returning the call. Five minutes into the conversation she said she was calling cause she was bored. I said, "Wait... you mean you weren't calling cause you missed my call?" "Um what call?" "I was just leaving you a message!" "No way! I was calling because I was looking through my call list trying to think of who'd be most interesting to talk to. That's plus creepy!"
We signed our lease this morning. We're now officially roomies :D
As we were leaving the house we were talking about Dr. Machonis. I said despite his weirdness, it's obvious that he loves Historical in general. She said, "If he loved it so much you think he'd read another book about it." I almost died laughing.
The other TA's think we have a very weird sense of humor. Every time we laugh maniacally they say, "That's plus German." Like when we were trying to get Cory to marry Filiz and Laura said there would be rice to throw. Then she said, "I mean birdseed cause if birds eat rice they explode." Nicole and I started giggling to each other and said, "heheheheheh... exploding birds would be cool."
Last night when I stayed over Michael said he wouldn't be able to sleep cause of the giggling fits we have together. So we started playing twister in the livingroom without a mat. And somehow Nicole shoved her head up my butt and I almost fell on her. Plus funny.
I love love love love love my new roommate.
Bo's actually been really great lately. We've been talking a lot and any tension that existed is now gone. Thank god! Tonight Joe was over and they were talking and having a great time. He wanted to hear her Chinese pop music so she was excited to share it :)
Catrina's pregnant! I haven't posted that yet... She told us on Monday. Yay :D She'll be such a great mom and Kenny is gonna torture that poor child. Her birthday was on Thursday so we all went to Giradelli for ice cream. It was yuuuuuuuuuuummy. Definitely worth going all the way to south beach for!
I don't want to go into the issues I've had with the dept. I'm sick of them. Seriously... I can't deal with it. If I don't pass the syntax test on Tuesday I think I'll drop out. I honestly don't give two shits and I never want to see Mrs. Dr. Yavas again. After the test I'm reporting her actions to the dean of students. They're unexcusable and other students have witnessed her rudeness towards me and said they would back me up.
I guess that's all the excitement for now. I need to get a car over the next two weeks. Tanya said she'll take me to carmax in Ft. Lauderdale cause it's cheaper and they probably have a better selection since the old ladies sell them when they can't drive any more.
This Journal is Friends Only
Reply to be friended, but have a reason.
I do not friend real life friends who live in the same city as I do or who are friends with my friends who live near me. Sorry Miami friends... It's only led to problems in the past.
Bernadette Peters's husband DIED! He was in a plane crash yesterday (now 2 days ago).
