You can always tell a murderer by his fancy prose.

A sport for potential criminals.

I can copy a "to read" list too.
These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users (as of today). As usual, bold what you have read, italicize those you started, and strike through what you couldn't stand. Add an asterisk* to those you've read more than once. Underline those on your to-read list.

But if you care, I'm just around the corner...

One too many things said that I'm having trouble shaking off.

final: 8am

interview: friday, 11am

work: always

finals: tuesday, 12 and 3.30

fuck i am already done with school in my mind. i dont know how i am going to pull the final out of my ass tomorrow. fuck you, post-modern theory. fuck you especially genetically modified foods. i could give a shit if there are fish genes in my tomato.

well, i guess i'm essentially in atlanta now. i only have to be in athens for exam time. i will probably end up staying in athens as much as possible though for lack of anything to do/anyone to hang out wiht in atlanta. atlanta is going to suck until i actually move here. i am so tired of living out of my car and working at a job i hate and awkwardly sit around someones apartment trying not to touch anything or fuck up their space. there is nothing welcoming in this city that i am looking forward to right now other than doing stuff at the museum. matt and i are officially sick of seeing each other from my bumming in his space, but since he is the only person i know here to actually call to hang out with its him or no one right now. the whole situation sucks. he doesnt want me around but i dont really have a choice right now toher than to stay at my moms which is not an option if i am to stay sane, or just drive to atlanta for museum, drive back to athens. drive to work the next morning, drive back, drive in, drive back, you get the point. too mcu hdriving. why did i do this to myself? oh rightm becuase im an idiot. fuck. see what atlanta is doing to me? i dont even wantt o hang out with me becuase i am a whining brat here. tell me again why i jsut bought a house here?

I'm a home owner. What the hell?

Too many things to do, hopefully enough time. Oy. The end of the semester is bad enough and now I am also adding in applying for jobs as well as stressing out over stupid things so that I will forget about my work. Get it together Susannah! No time to worryabout silly things that other people are doing. No sirrrree. Okay. Class go. Taking my laptop today so I can work on papers at every posible moment and during geography. Yep Yep.

This week guys, I am working on a project that requires a lot of mvie watching occupation, so please feel free to call me and when you have timee possibly come over and keep me company while I cut and paste my merzbau.

p.s. Do you ever wonder how stupid people think you are? I do, specifically about people that shouldn't. Although I must say I wish I was a bit more oblivious at times.

Applying for a job I probably won't get is a very stressful thing. God damn graduating. Now, I see why people stay in school professionally.

So, in the interest of distracting myself from paper writings, I would like to initiate plans for the summer. Consider this a sign-up list:

1. Bike rides around and about.
2. Picnics (I'm thinking picnics at Oakland Cemetery could be very pleasent).
3. Screen on the Green (but not for the movies it will be incredibly busy for... oh, wait. Okay, scratch that. Make our own screen on the green time. We can easily put a TV and chairs on a front yard and watch whatever we want).
4. Trivia night. Anyone? There are many a trivia to be conquered.
5. Dinner parties of various themes. By theme I am not specifying or limiting the possibility of costumes involved... but I do mean this more in the sense of food themed.
6. Marco Polo.
7. Bike rides to picnics. I have a basket we can put things in, so between that and a backpack or something, we can have that set.
8. Capture the flag. But the most awesome capture the flag possible.
9. Six Flags. I won't ride on the roller coasters but I will definitely hold stuff and walk around.
10. Flea bag express.
11. There is supposedly one of the best thrift stores in the SE in Alabama... day trip worthy... anyone?
12. Outlet mall extravaganza.
13. Boozefest.
14. Aquarium.

Please add to the list as you see fit... I just want to make sure that there is no sitting around doing nothing. Seriously. If left to my own devices this summer I will hermit and not see anyone. Ever. So please, don't let this happen to me this summer. Or to you for that matter. We must organize!

someone computer literate?
So, Bethany's post reminded me about this... I need to make a website for myself that I can include a blog in, but I have no idea how to do this. It wouldn't necessarily be a lj type blog, but more of a essay blog. My internship advisor at the museum recommended that I develop something like that so that I have writings outside of academic papers, and where I can put academic papers... to use as a writing portfolio to submit to grad schools and internships and jobs.

Can anyone, once the semester is at a slower point of course, help me make a website and show me how to update it? Please.
