Doppio Joke

"Yeah, no caffeine doesn't ever affect me anymore either-- I'm also getting a double espresso." --Me, circa 8:30pm tonight... or, rather, last night

God, I Can't Get This Out of My Head (sung like Kylie)

I hadn't thought about this song since, like, 1996 or whenever it came out. And I haven't been able to stop singing it in my head since this lady requested it on karaoke. Ahhhhhhhh

I heard from a friend today
And she said you were in town
Suddenly the memories came back to me in
My mind

How can I be strong
I've asked myself
Time and time I've said
That I'll never fall in love with you again

A wounded heart you gave,
My soul you took away
Good intentions you had many,
I know you did
I come from a place that hurts,
an' God knows how I've cried
And I never want to return
Never fall again

Making love to you felt so good and
Oh so right

How can I be strong
I've asked myself
Time and time I've said
That I'll never fall in love with you again

So here we are alone again,
Didn't think it'd come to this
And to know it all began
With just a little kiss
I've come too close to happiness
To have it swept away
Don't think I can take the pain
Never fall again

Kinda late in the game
And my heart is in your hands
Don't you stand there and then tell me
You love me
Then leave again
'Cause I'm falling in love with you again
Hold me, hold me
Don't ever let me go
Say it just one time
Say you love me
God knows I do love you again

Princeton Review - Joe Bloggs

The Princeton Review books always makes an example of "Joe Bloggs," the average test taker who always takes the 'bait' answers. "Which one would Joe Bloggs choose?" or "The answer 'C' is clearly the Joe Bloggs answer," are two of many references made to this 'average test taker.' Well thankfully I am even less average than he because sometimes I manage to come up with answers that are so wrong, they're not even an option. So I redo them and get them right. Cheers to being less than average!

A Worthy Shower

You must try this experiment. If you wear glasses, you may use your own. Else, go get a fake pair from Urban Outfitters!

1) Wait until you are really [nighttime] sleepy-- particularly effective if you have just awoken from a couch pass-out.

1a) You may be drunk as a substitute.

2) Turn on the shower and make sure it is hot enough that the bathroom can get steamy.

3) Take a shower with your glasses on - of course you should avoid getting them wet!

4) Document the experience... probably the following morning.

My Personal Results:

It was a bitter cold night. I returned from a late dinner, one where we started eating just shy of midnight. With it being so cold, we ordered a nice carafe of heavy red wine which tastefully (tastily) went with the food.

I recall about 3 minutes of the 12-minute cab ride home. The driver had to wake me up: "Miss, is this corner okay??" I played it cool.

I went home and started to get ready for bed because believe me-- I was ready for bed. But the chilling winds that rattled my windows and that made even my apartment a bit cold (reference entry regarding my wanting to MELT in my apartment) prompted a sudden desire to take a hot shower.

I decided to keep my glasses on.

It was difficult to maneuver around, despite my being thoroughly familiar with my shower. I was overly-relaxed from the sudden temperature change, the hot shower in itself, and the red wine. And I was tired. Oh, and my glasses entirely steamed over-- it was like I was dreaming. My eyes were open and I saw nothing but what could be interpreted as clouds... or fog... or the mist of another land.

I felt like I was starting to move around in jerky movements and was lucky that I did not fall entirely into my shower curtain. Not having a rod the following morning would have been extremely inconvenient. In fact, having a broken rod all together would be inconvenient all together (reference Rod Appreciation Day-- would have been too many rod incidences in a row for me).

I had some trippy thoughts after (which I very distinctly remember but will refrain from sharing).

Try it. You won't regret it.

I wish I were in elementary school so that they could cancel my day. Like, is this weather really necessary?
