Godspeed, All the Bakers at Dawn

I started a post about how I was having a great day, and then my computer fucked up. I took an hour break, and now I think I'm ready to try this again. But you are really starting to piss me off Mr. Blog. Don't ruin my good day.

So today I had a lovely day. I went to both of my classes (3 for 3 so far!) and after my Political Science class (thats what Poli Sci stands for Jenn) I was going to ask my teacher if there was any way I could make up the test I missed on Thursday. I'm a dumbass, and skipped this class both times last week. I woke up Friday morning remembering that I had forgotten about the map test that is worth 10% of my grade. Motherfucker. During class I was looking at my syllabus to see what Mazen's policy on make up exams were, and it looked hopeless. After class I had the following conversation with him.

Me: Last Thurs-
Mazen: You missed the test on Thursday. Are you going to be on campus tomorrow? I'll be in my office from 11-4:30, so you can come in any time then.
Me: I can still take it?
Mazen: Sure
Me: I love you.

Maybe I didn't declare my love for him, but I should have. Is that not the awesomest thing you have ever heard? I was going to make up some lame excuse, saying that I got sick on Tuesday, and on Thursday I was just an idiot and skipped class, hoping he would give me something I could do to earn an few extra points. I really didn't expect to be able to take the test at all. Turns out I didn't even have to ask! Maybe I won't fail out of college after all. You are now officially my favorite teacher Mazen. And you have a cool name to top it off.

After that, I was walking out of class, and called Emily to tell her they were giving out free pitas at Pita Petes if you signed up for some credit card. I never normally do that shit, but I made up my SSN, phone number, last name and address, so I'm sure I'll never get that credit card. You just had to cut it up once you got it anyways, they weren't going to charge you anything. I know, it's a stupid thing to do, considering someone did take my SSN once, but I'm one step ahead of you bitches now. So I got a free dinner. Sweetass.

Later on, I was talking to Keri online, and checking my email. I got so excited when I saw who emailed me back. Mr. Jason Mulgrew! And Jenn, he was funny in it! I just told him a few songs he might like, and how I liked that Ray Montangue he always talked about. Keri was jealous that he was funny in my email, because she sent him one, and he wasn't when he replied. You probably don't care if you don't know who Jason Mulgrew is, but it totally made my day. So then me and Keri were talking about how we wanted to see what Jason looked like. I remember him writing about how he had a profile on this Friendster thing, so Keri and I sign up for it, hoping to see a picture of him. We found him, and he's actaully not that bad looking Jenn. Definitly not as fat as he makes himself out to be. I was surprised, I really thought he was going to be creepy looking, but he's not at all. Plus his profile was hysterical, so you should find it Jenn. Keri and I started feeling really creepy because we were looking at his friends going "I think I found his roommate Ben. Oh shit, theres's Brian too!" Probably no one cares about this, and if you don't care, it's because you have not read his blog. Do yourselves a favor and read him. From start to finish. It's long, but so worth it. I laugh so hard reading what he writes. Go there. Now.

I am getting really excited for Christmas. I downloaded a few songs today, and I'm trying my hardest to resist listening to them until after Thanksgiving. I was talking to Billy Jack earlier about Christmas movies and songs, and I can't wait for some of my favorite Chrsitmas movies to start playing. A Christmas Story, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Prancer, Home Alone, Charlie Brown, Frosty the Snowman, and all those weird animation-but-they're-not-really-animation movies, like Rudolph and Bill's favorite because he kind of looks like him, the Abominable (however you spell it) Snowman. Shit, is that the name of it? I can't remember. But you still look like it. Emily said she's going to buy Elf on Friday, and I really hope she does. One of the best movies though, is The Snowman. Has anyone ever seen it? It's animated and about a snowman that comes to life and take the boy who made him on a trip to see other snowman. I can't explain it, but it's great. There's no talking in it, they just play this one song most of the time, and if you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about. If not, call me and I'll hum it for you. Another reason I can't wait for Christmas is because Keri, J.P and I are getting our mom and dad the best present ever - a ride in a hot air balloon. Shes always wanted to take a ride in one, and I've had the idea forever, just no money to do it with. Thank god J.P is loaded and can spot us the money for awhile. Just he and I were supposed to do it at first, because Keri is making my mom this scrapbook, which Pammy is going to love, and we wanted to get her something better. But it's fucking expensive, so Keri decided to go in on it with us. We're even sacrificing presents to each other to afford it. The love and support that they both provide me with is more than enough of a present. Just kidding, I'm not queer. Ok, now I'm really fucking excited for Christmas. Get in the holiday spirit, bitches!

I just got off the phone with you, and probably said everything I'm about to post. But oh well.

Tell Mazen he's a good man with a cool name and I thank him for it. Thanks for the Poli Sci 411 too. Not that I didn't already know or something.

Dude! This is totally going to sound stalkerish, but I really want to see Mulgrew's picture too! And Ben and Brian. For real. It'll make his blog that much better! So save his picture on your computer so you can send it to me. I don't want to sign up for any services damnit. And you Emjo need to thank me for directing you over to his blog. I could have been stingy, you know.

I love the Rudolph one. It turns my stomach because it reminds me so much of when I was a kid. So do all the others that go with it. But that one just hits a nerve. And frosty too.

I'll miss you while I'm gone XOXOOX

Merry Christmas Katie!!! I know it's early but i'm really getting into the christmas mood too. Last night I went shopping with my friend to buy her tree and then we went to walmart and bought a christmas cd and looked at their christmas stuff. If only it was fucking colder and we had snow! I can't wait til stupid Thanksgiving is over so we can decorate. After I put my tree up in my room i'll take a picture just for you! And whoever else cares to see it hah. It's cool what you're doing for your parents. Honestly I couldn't see myself doing something that nice for mine, is that horrible? I just don't get along with them, our personalities REALLY clash...among other things. Ok I'm done now. Talk to you later loooovaaaa.
