I think I'm having a quarter-life crisis

Things I enjoy: LISTS! So....

1. Arsenal 1-0 Roma!
2. Neon: the new black
3. Obama's speech: the empire strikes back?
4. Did you know that you can drive from one end of Germany to the other in like, eight hours?
5. If I were an animal, I would be a duck-billed platypus.
6. A super power that only allows you to do something really trivial, like, blow bubbles out of your nose or something would so not be worth it.

heeeeeey Katie!

Sorry for my sabbatical. At least I didn't have Muzak playing in the background while I was gone.

I would do a facebook 25 things list (and based on my love for lists, you would think I would've already done this), but:
a) There are not 25 things that people don't know about me - my life is an open book people.
b) I am far too lazy. Look at how often I update this mofo. Exactly.

Remember when I asked for applications from people who would like to become my mortal enemy? Well, I've finally gotten one. He didn't submit a formal application, but I assume that by sleeping on my face every night he means, "I want to systematically try and sabotage your life and everything you stand for." That's right folks, I'd like to announce Dusty the Cat as my mortal enemy. Even though he doesn't have the normal qualifications for such a position (political power, thumbs, etc.), he sure is far today, he's:
1. Bitten my toes relentlessly
2. sat on my desk and knocked things over just to see them fall
3. tried to get into my backpack and come to school with me so that he can further exert his kitty asshole-ness in Kresge hall
4. tried to knead my face with his claws/talons
5. attempted to lull me into a false sense of security by curling up into a ball and looking cute so that when I let my guard down he'll try and frame me for murder or some such thing.
...he is a worthy opponent.

I think I saw him and his sidekick Manhattan the puppydog memorizing the blueprints to what looked like a bank vault.

"Saucy Minx" is my favorite descriptive phrase.

i.e, "That German Chancellor Angela Merkel is one saucy minx"

Eric Patrick Harper is coming to Evanston...

Hero of the day: The Chicago Cubs, for beginning their spring training season by starting Jeff Samardzija against the team that beat them in last years' play-offs, the Los Angeles Dodgers.

You gotta do better than that, Lou.

Currently reading: Empire Falls by Richard Russo
Currently listening to: my iPod on shuffle (aka the most random assortment of music ever)
Currently craving: new kicks

Peace, love, and hipsterdom.
