sorry i haven't posted. i think i've been sleeping since wednesday.

for two days this week we had a sub in the class. she was nice, but very very old. like, in her 70's. she kept saying funny old-school stuff to the kids, like making them repeat after her, "lead is poison, children. lead is poison." she told them that poison means it kills you. (the kids like to chew on their pencils) i was so tempted to say something about the fact that they've made pencils out of graphite for several decades now...

i slept a few minutes in my class today... i dreamed about a man wearing a black coat backwards (it opened in the back) and a plastic bottle of dr. pepper. i have no idea what that means

at the concert i was That Mean Girl Who Kept Telling People To Sit Down And Stop Blocking The Aisle.

also, if you are an eighthhh grader with a large chesttt you should probably wear the required undergarments to concerts. and if your mommy let you leave the house because you were wearing a semi decent outfit, please don't roll up your shirt and roll down your pants when you get to the show. you may think it looks good, and maybe it does look ok in the bathroom mirror. but from the back, you have love handles and your underwear is showing.

(i'm hoping that by misspelling certain words i can avoid some assholesss looking for kid pornographyyy. it makes me mad when it shows up in my referrals)

i'm going to see mxpx in concert tonight at cal poly. :o) my only other time seeing them was at my very first concert, way back in '96. wow... eight and a half years ago. i'm so old and uncool now

we had a power outage at school today. it was kind of nice. very very quiet..... also, the classroom clock moved a minute every second to catch up after the power came on. i didn't know clocks could do that.

i always thought that i was unusually tall throughout my childhood. i spent an hour on the phone with my mom yesterday looking at my height through the years, and evidently this is not the case. until i was 11 or 12, i was only at about the 75-85th percentile. in fact, according to my height at age 7, i should only have been 5'5" or 5'6".

i suddenly jumped to being WAY above the 95th percentile during 9th grade. between the ages of 13 and 14 is when i experienced my most dramatic growth jump. i reached my full adult height of 6'1/2" sometime between july of 98 and november of 99. (age 15 or 16)

also, in 1994 (age 11) i weighed 70 pounds. this is probably the skinniest looking i ever got. if you see pictures of me at age 11... well, i probably won't show you many pictures of me at age 11. it is rather embarrasing. but don't worry, folks! i was up to 85 pounds in 1995 at the age of 12.5. that is about the 12th percentile for weight and the 95 percentile for height. my goodness that is terrible.

but it DOES make me feel better about my current slightly underwieght status of being 130 pounds. (only 7 pounds off- thats the closest i've been to average since i started my growth spurts at age 9.) i've come a long way, baby!

something i realized lately is that if i drink one of my cappuchino slim fasts with my breakfast, my pee smells like cappuchino all day long. i think this is wierd and should be investigated.

by the way, i did say with my breakfast, not for breakfast. i think that toast with peanut butter and a slim fast is an awesome breakfast when i don't have much time and need a lot of protein. if i havea slim fast in public, though, i always feel like i need to put a napkin around the can so everyone doesn't assume i'm dieting.

we are watching conspiracy theory.

it is really sad, but i want to go to bed now and it isn't even 9 pm yet. have i become an old person or a young child? i'm not sure. oh, probably an old person because i am also mysteriously icky feeling.

ben, you should find a healthy, interesting girlfriend. you should trade me in to the indians like my mommy always threatened.

the following is lifted from my canadian friend, michelle.

"While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction and there's nothing you can do about it!"

i forgot to register for classes last thursday. i was sick. now i'm pissed about it, and about the thought of having a certain professor for my seminar class, because the good professor's class is now full. and i won't be able to register till feb 23rd. and this is the first time i've ever forgotten to register for classes and i feel dumb and mad at myself.

but the up side is that i bought myself 130 dollars worth of clothes at the gap yesterday and i am a Corporate Whore.

my favorite valentine from one of the first graders says, "Happy Valentines Day. You are good at reading the sky. Love, H."

how cute is that? (i've been teaching them about weather and clouds in science)

i went to the doctor today and i have a viral infection... so i'll just have to tough it out. there is some good news, though! i should be getting a refferal to an allergist after i go back to the doctor in two weeks. :o) woohoo maybe they'll give me an allergy test finally!!!

i've been waiting two weeks (10 buisness days) for my package of books from barnes and noble. it was supposed to be here in 3-8 business days but... yeah. I can't spell buisness. is it business or buisness or something else? help me.

my package, according to online info, went from tennesse to california to south carolina.
either the info was wrong or the post office is just WRONG. come back to california, my little package of happy!

today i came home and thought there was a new stain on the living room carpet. upon closer inspection, it was actually a swarm of ants eating a dead earwig.

someone needs to clean the living room. that someone is the laura.

automagically is one of my favorite words.

my going to france is about 90% sure. and if the 10% happens, i'd probably get to go in june. i'd be going with my friend ryanne, who i met because she was looking for a babysitter. from babysitter to european travel companion- sounds good to me!

it would be a cheap trip to france. no dinner in the eiffel tower like my roomate carolyn had when she went to france with her choir. it'd be hostels and frugalness for us :o)

ryanne and i will be finalizing things in the next couple of weeks, and i'll apply for my passport. i've never had one before, since the only foreign countries i've been to are canada and mexico.

a girl in my education class, who is older than me and married, said the farthest she's been from here is oregon! ay yi yi

so, uh, i might be going to france in march
