i'm stupid and 18 and i guess i'll always remember that [11 Dec 2006|01:09am]
[ mood | nerdy ]

Happy 18th Birthday to Me! December 10th, 1988 was when Mama Di Marco pushed me out. I am legal finally and have great friends who helped me get my 18th year on this earth started with a bang.

We had a holiday soiree in Wayne's room where formal attire was required and so was a shot of peppermint schnapps with chocolate syrup upon entrance. We had wine, whiskey, gin, peppermint schnapps and some bacardi 151 which is pretty lethal. It was definitely a party and it was definitely awesome. I have finals this week so it was kind of the last night of partying for a while, and we tried our best.

Definitely a fun night and I was pretty far gone at like 8:30. ;)

I may or may not have gotten a tatoo yesterday.

I feel bad because I like it. I don't know why. It something the 'rentals will hopefully never find out about because I dont want to be disowned. It something that means something to me and something I hope will always remind me that I've made it this far and will go even farther. I dont think you can do many things in life that are permanent. Maybe this counts.

I like it, I think.

lets get these teen hearts beating faster faster [14 Sep 2006|11:50pm]
There is extreme friend drama going on in the hallway. I want to listen in like my roommate is, put my ear against the door, but alas I have a paper to write.

Rwanda. Sigh. I can do it if I really put my mind to it. But I'm avoiding this.

pack up what you own...and you dial up who you can't phone... [08 Sep 2006|11:09am]
So it's 11:10 AM and I'm watching The View. I had a 9oclock stat lecture which involved performance art by my 85 year old teacher, and three classes back to back from 12-3, in 3 different locations waaay across campus. Must put on the track shoes.

So this is college.

Food is honestly better than I eat at home, my bed is comfortable, and evey morning I wake up to a view of sprawling fields and sometimes cows. I walk about 2-4 miles a day just going to class and the co-op and back and sometimes more. I eat a lot of cucumbers and tea.

There is an undergrouond file sharing network at the school that has changed my life. Movies take 10 minutes to download. TV shows in less than 5. Albums 30 seconds. Songs are less than one second. It has honestly replaced any need I have for a TV-- i can just download and watch what ever I want within a few minutes.

The roommate is really chill so that a good thing. It could be way worse.

Things are pretty okay.

the cool air will brush your hard heart away [21 Aug 2006|05:00am]
[ mood | voracious! ]

Bought all of my dorm stuff for college. Very scary, but fun to buy new stuff. Mommy dearest and I spent about 400 dollars today and we're only like 75% done. It's okay though.

I find myself unable to watch seasons 5 and 6 of The X-Files. It's frustrating me that Mulder and Scully aren't together yet, and Diana Fowley just mucks things up and makes everybody angst. Who the hell's idea was it for Mulder's ex-wife to come back?

Anyway, i'm in the first cycle of a new birth control pill, and it's fantastic. No cramping, breakouts, moodswings and an extremely light and short cycle. BUT I"M SO DAMN HUNGRY. I have been starving all the time for the past week-- not for bad food, but for vegetables and sushi and turkey sandwhiches. AHH BIZARRE CRAVINGS GO AWAY. It could be worse, and it hasbeen WAY worse, but this hunger is getting old.

I"M HUNGRY. It's 5 AM. I want an 12" sub. Maybe tuna. Or meatball. MMm, meatball.

David Duchovny is on Inside the Actor's Studio. I figured, cool, I like him, I'll watch it.

I turned it on and started squealing involuntarily, making some bizarre animal noises.

Just love. :)

Guess who I just saw at the grocery store?


You see her around town sometimes but this was the first time I approached her because she looked especially mom-like.

Me: "Hi, I'm sorry, I just wanted to say that I'm a big fan of yours and that I really look up to you."
Tina Weymouth: "Thank you," and then she smiled really brightly and was like: "I love it when girls come up to me. All I ever get is middle aged men."

And then we laughed and parted.

All around cool lady, even if her son Egan is and was a total douche.

NEDHEADS [02 Aug 2006|06:21am]
[ mood | amused ]

Okay, if you're in Connecticut, you're a Democrat (but who isnt around here?), and above voting age, I want to talk to you about Ned Lamont.

I went into this thing with pretty blah feelings all around, but with every intention of voting for Lieberman in the November election for Senate. I wasn't gonna vote for someone I knew nothing about, which is what Mr. Lamont was a few months ago. As I've learned more about him from his commercials and the interviews and the endorsements he's gotten from everyone from NOW to Michael Schiavo to the Daily Kos guy actually IN his campaign ad, he seemed more interesting. I was still unsure. I felt kinda bad about not voting for Lieberman. I mean, he seems like a good guy. It's no where NEAR the Chris Shayes angst I have, but it's still a little bit there.

But basically, I didn't have a real opinion about this election except for "blah leave me alone it's hot." I was invited to a Lamont fundraiser by some good friends, and going in knowing next to nothing, my mind was blown.

Lamont's an oddly adorable, very charming, very funny guy who reminds me of my uncle Jim, in the best possible way. You can tell he's old money (as are a lot of people around here, so it's not too unusual), and he wears it very well. He seems like a nice guy, personally.

On the issues, I know a lot of people are saying he's more anti-Lieberman than pro-Lamont, but I honestly feel like Ned Lamont would make a good senator. He disagrees w/ the current administration fervently on the war in Iraq, yes, but that's not his only policy. He wants to close the gap on Americans without healthcare, for instance, and believes in universal healthcare for all Americans. As someone who's worked in an innercity health clinic, this is an important issue for me. I honestly start to tear up when I think about the health care problem in this country-- the fact that over 40 million Americans are too rich to be covered by the government and too poor to pay for insurance. Also, education-- as a college student and recent high school graduate, education is also an important issue for me. Ned's work at Harding High in BPo speaks for itself--volunteer teacher. You know that children are important to him, and his own are always near by.

Oh, and I made a blog!

diane made it into the background of a blog photo!Collapse )
Okay that was my 5 seconds of fame.

Even if you didnt read any of what I just wrote, have different opinions, are offended or from a different fricken country, YOU MUST WATCH THIS:

It's very possibly the best campaign ad ever.

New essay within the next few days. I'm entitling it:

Really Agressive Bugs, Faith Healers, and Kid Siblings Named Sam


It's Obvious the Supernatural Writers Loved the X-Files

Watch for it.

I just got into Supernatural. I love it. It's a slashier X-Files, with worse writing, and far more loving attention paid by the camera to the lead actor's ass. I can;t really get into the Wincest though. It creeps me out, hardcore. I'm just about to watch Route 666 right now, but so far I am digging the show. Jensen Ackles might be prettier than Wentworth Miller. I dont know if I can deal with that information. Padalecki does nothing for me.

A lot of Whedon alum seem to guest star.

Anyway, if you dont watch it, you should. It's about very pretty men in conflict who fight evil and listen to mullet rock and bicker slashily but completely heterosexually.


PS Does anybody EVER get any ass on this show? The Route 666 thing looks promising, but I dont want to get my hopes up.

the first 7 episodes of prison break? [25 May 2006|05:27am]
[ mood | awake ]

Does anybody here watch Prison Break? I just watched the first seven episodes of the first season.

Uh, if you don't watch, you should. Because it's ridiculously awesome.

Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell as brothers? Hot.

Aging Robin Tunney as Veronica (Who Wishes Her Last Namer Were Mars)? Hot.

Everybody on the show? Hot.

Michael/Sara is pretty much the best relationship ever. It's so.. I believe the word people are throwing around is Victorian. It's soo... they have hand holding and one kiss and meaningful stare-y eye-sex. It's quite magnificent.

Lincoln and Michael should have like a brother show where all they do is hang out and be brothers. It would be awesome. I would buy all of the seasons on DVD.

Similarly, Michael and Sucre are the funniest duo I've seen in a long time. They are so married.
They should also have their own show.

And T-Bag freaks me the fuck out.

And, again, I'll mention that Wentworth Miller is so sexy that I start ovulating every time he comes on screen. And since I was a John Doe fan before that excellent piece of television was ripped from us, I hold a special torch for Dominic Purcell in my heart, regardless of his oddly proportioned head.

I'm having fandom issues, however. For me, Michael and Sara work so much better on paper, in fanfic. Their forbidden thing is totally my style. And the actors portray it really well. But I feel more comfortable with a Michael/Sara relationship in fanfic, in fact I push for it, than I do on the show. IT's sexy and everything and well played out, but it would never work in real life. And I guess thinking about that doesnt make me too happy, so I stick to fanfic.

Now, Lincoln and Veronica, on the other hand, I am totally comfortable with. A lot of people will say that RT and DP have no chemistry and it's awkward between them, and it's true, but I love how it's awkward. I love the absolute despair, the regret, the sorrow. It's about two peope who were once in love and maybe still are, but their lives took them to different places, and it's about choosing, about when you start to take your own path a opposed to the other person's. aIt's antastic, and extremely painful and interesting to me. I Mean, Veronica obviously cares deeply for him, and he has feelings back for her, mostly of regret and self-loathing, and they're really in no position for a relationship and its soooo complicated.

Conclusion: Veronica/Lincoln is my show OTP, while Michael/Sara is my fandom OTP.

Sorry for the early morning rambles. :)

"Let's, uh.. Let's paint the town... red! With, uh, red paint! Yes, let's paint the town red!"
"Are you on any sort of drugs I should be aware of?"

Ha! I hung out with Carolyn for like three hours yesterday-- we got home from school, both skipped golf practice because we were tired and are delinquent, and went out for Chinese food. I had Tiger Bowl's shrimp and cashews lunch special, which is especially delicious, and my Chinese comfort food. Carolyn had dumplings and sweet and sour chicken and then we philosophized about life and were silly and drove around. We hit up Connecticut Avenue and went to Best Buy, where the quote from above originated. We looked through DVDs, found nothing good, hit up TJMaxx and again nothing. Went to the Westport library to pay a massive fine and rent some DVDs for freeeee. A 3 hour odyssey set to 8 rotations of Guster's "Parachute."

We fight a lot. Now that I am leaving, it's harder to stay mad at eachother.

I am going to miss her so much.

Today I eventually got to school around 9:30ish. It was long and boring and I'd rather not have been there at all, frankly. But then I had golf practice and I played really well (for me, at least), shot in the fifties. And then I went to the Seigenthaler's to babysit Jack from like 6-10. 70$. It's the best gig ever, I swear. In the past week, I've made 150$ off them, for what may be 8 hours work, total.

Ahh, life. The only things that are really sucky are school and my new meds that are making me nauseous.

Other than that, I'm pretty cool.

Weirdest experience ever:

Diane and Carolyn Di Marco, two very cute teenage girls, in sweatpants, sweatshirts, and flip flops, exploring Home Depot at 10PM to find fiberglass resin.

Hahaha I really like my sister sometimes. We're fun.

somewhat of a gip [23 Mar 2006|09:39pm]
[ mood | drained ]

Past two days I was running a fever-- Wed it was 99.8 and yesterday it was 101.2. Today it was okay but that's probably because I had to write a histry paper last night and ended up satying up, thus running today entirely on adrenaline.

I went to the beach today during my free and had my lunch on the sand and stared out into the ocean. It was windy, and a little chilly, but the sun was warm and the sea air made me feel a whole lot better about life.

I'm writing X-Files fanfic. I am scared for my mental health.

Also, don't ever, ever watch 'This Is Not Happening.' Ever. Seriously, I know better. But I couldn't help myself. We're talking The-Notebok-fetal-position tears here. Every time. It's just the image of Scully screaming her head of, screaming 'this is not happening!' with the raw voice, and them trying to hold her back (she's lie, what 5 months pregnant?) after they find Mulder's body. And I tear up just thinking about it.

There is sand in my pants still. I don't really mind.

My mom is making stew, there's a fire in the family room, and Carolyn's stuck in Delaware.
