Atrophe brings atrophe...so philosophical, huh?

My brain has turned to goo...atrophe...

Karissa has the right idea.

I have watched a total of three movies in the theater: Mona Lisa Smile, The Return of the King, and Cold Mountain--why did I spend so much on theater tickets? Now I am poor :-)

I have read my fair share of romance. Nora Roberts. Candace Camp. Classics--how I have forgotten you--even when I made goals to read more of you. Sometimes you just need a deadline to finish one, even if it is a great work--the label "CLASSIC" just makes it feel like work. And in this time of desperately trying to avoid work at all costs, I find that finishing one is against my purpose of the season.

Ugh. I am sick of this waiting...why can't I spread out this work so that I won't feel incredibly behind when I go back to school? And I will. Setonian assignments really creep up, don't they?

And I truly miss everyone. Karissa, I miss lunch. Julie, your laugh when I go crazy in class. Dr. Jerz, I miss the classes that go crazy (Gina, do ya miss her ranting? :-)). Paul--rhetorical internet barbs. (Didn't think I was going to mention him, but I did). I miss you all.

I am ready for a second round, and this time I am prepared--$100 textbooks and rejuvenated, though sleeping brain. I have gotten so bad that I have memorized the previews in the theaters; I can now say word-for-word the entire Win a Date with Tad Hamilton trailer. It has gotten that bad.

I have loved this break, don't get me wrong, but I cannot stay still this long. I tend to get depressed and really, really philosophical. What has my life come to? Where am I going? And reading The Hours hasn't helped my situation at all. I still have to rent that. Heck I have a few more days to kill before my life comes back. Isn't it funny how my "madness" of school has turned to my life? "Now that's what ya call ironic."

A Challenge: Does anyone know where that quote came from? I'll give the first person who can guess the movie a cookie--well, if an out of state person knows it, I'll send them a nice picture of a cookie ;-). A great big cookie--

Has anyone noticed my complete lack of punctuation etiquette over break? I certainly have.

The movie isn't that hard...

OH SO HOW I MISS YOU SO MUCH! I haven't talked to you in years!!! I miss you to death. I kind of want to go back to school, but I think those butterflies in my tummy are just my nerves. I do miss you, Karissa and Anne the most, you three are like my bestest friends. Please call me or something, I am sure you have my phone number. If I don't talk to you before Monday, I guess I'll see you next week sometime! I really really need to talk and catch up on old times! Miss you!!!!!

According to Google, that quote is from Pirates of the Caribbean. (I had to change the spelling, though.)

I like chocolate chip, though M&Ms will do.

Its so totally Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. It was said by the character of Ragetti played by Mackenzie Crook. (You aren't alone in letting boredom sneak up on you.)

Four minutes! Oh well. :)

Very good. I will have to bring that cookie on Tuesday to Thinking and Writing. Chocolate chip, huh? If I would have known a professor would have found it, I would have offered a nice apple (isn't that what teachers, excuse me, professors, are supposed to get?) Too healthy, I know :-)

Sorry Diana ;-) Maybe I will try movie trivia again sometime--and at the end of a very boring entry. Keep on the lookout, me mateys!

I missed the fun : (

Oh well... I wouldn't have known it. Amanda, I can't wait until we have this Lit. course together. I am more than ready to go back for more reasons than I can control...

Yes, I know.
