Thank you, mattador!!! Eye ♥ yew!

1. My ankle gave out for no readily apparent reason on Tuesday, and I fell. I literally was walking off the curb, hyper-extended my ankle or something, and just bit the concrete. It was exceptionally embarrassing. I have a pretty bad scrape on my hand and I have a heart-shaped bruise on my left knee, which I think is hilarious. My body does this sort of thing a lot though. My freshman year I was walking to Dinkytown when my right knee decided it wasn't necessarily required to work, gave out, and I fell into a bush.

2. I can go from listening to bluegrass to hip-hop with no transition whatsoever and not mind. Swing to Sex Pistols? No problem. I can do that with any kind of music. I am extremely picky about my music though. Anyone who knows me, is all too familiar with this. I'm a music elitist, even though I don't like to admit it. As a musician myself, and having gone through music theory and all that, I expect certain things from people that intend to make money off of music. Talent, innovation, intelligent lyrics, etc... whatever. Moving on.

3. I really like taking walks in the obscenely early hours of morning/night. I really like it. I'm almost an escapist, in the fact that I tend to plot my exit, and sneak silently out sometime after 2 a.m. to go for a walk by myself. Sometimes its absolutely horrifying and I think I'm going to get eaten by a shadow monster (I have an active imagination, shut up.) but it's totally worth it.

4. I didn't choose to go to school at the U of M, even though I think it is the perfect school for me and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I actually came here on accident (oh serendipity, you card!). I was thinking about going to Minnesota State at Mankato to get the hell out of Cambridge, and my high school adviser gave me the wrong application. I thought, "Minneapolis? Hey, What the hell? It's far away, I'll do it." And so I came. Moved from a town of 1000 people and a class of 94 graduates to this massive metropolis and joined a class of roughly 11,000. Culture shock? Actually... no.

5. I like puffy cheetos. Apparently, I'm the only one... but it gets worse - or better, depending on your sensibilities. Shannon introduced me to it our freshman year when we were neighbors in Middlebrook. She taught me that when you take the aforementioned puffy cheetos and dip them in sour cream, the combination is totally delicious. It's true, and it sounds like something only a stoner would come up with and god knows my friends are way too chicken to actually try it, but it's good, god damnit. And Shannon, I thank you.

Aaand I tag: faithlynn, telesilla, blyssfulchaos, lightofmine, and sixteenthnote
Although, if you want to, go ahead and do it.


Also, this is the best blond joke ever.

And now, off to the J-skewl!


ETA: Oh, and sixteenthnote, you should really see what lj-spellcheck wants to change your screenname to. It's hilarious. I almost died.

I wouldn't dare going outside by myself on a midnight walk in the park. Too scarry for me. No sir, no! You know in the daytime there are some creepy people walking around (ex. stalkers) but think about the nighttime.... "Shadow monster". ;)

Hah, I like to think it reaffirms my badassdom.

It wasn't too horribly frightening when I was still living in that tiny town in Wisconsin. Walking on the highway at night was always a bit terrifying because of drunkards and potential kidnappers but the quiet town streets and the lake road were totally harmless.

I think my backyard is more horrifying at night than anything else, but that's probably because of the coyotes. When I was younger, I used to think some tentacled, fanged, rotted corpse monster was going to run out of the woods at random and attack me when I was coming back from taking my dog out to her kennel. I'd sprint the acre back up to the house in livid terror. Like I said, overactive imagination.

HOWEVA! I did take several years of Tae Kwon Do and I do know how to bring the pain if absolutely necessary.

I doooon't. I want to seem all accepting and open minded but then I hear "Hit Me Baby One More Time" or "Sk8r Boii" or the newest fucking boyband and then I just want to kill things.

1. That happens to me all the time. It's always my ankle and it's both uncomfortable and embarrassing. *hugs*

5. Oooo I bet that's good. I dip nacho cheese Doritos in sour cream and it's soooooo yummeh.

(Sorry for that last... I didn't realize I was under my flatmate's lj name. Anyway... copy and paste. Hee.)

Oh man!! Someone else that enjoys sour cream as a dip?

I think I just fell in love with you!


Also, ankles are the work of the devil.

Dude, those shadow monsters are sneaky bastards. But the walks are totally worth it.

Lmao! Did it come up with undercarriage for you too? xDD That pretty much made my day!

Sometimes its absolutely horrifying and I think I'm going to get eaten by a shadow monster
Omg I know that feeling! xD You are not alone!

And I'm thinking about going to U of M in Minneapolis, but I'm a little wary of the large population. Even though I absolutely adore that city.

It did! I was laughing for minutes, because I am twelve forever.


You should totally come to this school! It's absolutely brilliant, and if you know what you want to do, it quickly becomes a lot smaller than it seems. I came from a tiny tiny town and I have never once felt overwhelmed.

Plus, then we could totally hang out. XD


OH! Word to the wise, if you do go for UMNTC, go to Middlebrook. Best dorm ever. Semi-private baths. Four people to a full bath instead of the whole "group bathroom" scenario. Plus, your laundry and dining hall are in the same building so you dont have to freeze to death ever. :) Speaking from experience, here.

What are you thinking of going for, by the by?

It would be awesome to hang out with you, seriously. That thought alone = squee =D

And I'm thinking of going for English (teaching), Pharmacy or I was thinking Law would be interesting. But English is pretty much my default xD
