Weekend Update

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 7:06 pm

So maybe it’s not the weekend yet, but I want to give some major props out to my devoted readers… I know. There are just so many of you. I can hardly keep track. My blog is just so captivating; it’s addictive!

Whatever. So here are the updates on the things I’ve been writing about…
1. Buying a new car… The verdict is still out. The Corolla is far cheaper than the Mazda 3 and would come with cruise and power locks, and those are important to me.
2. Renting a place… I will be subleasing an apartment in the U City Loop this summer until August 31. I hesitate to commit to actually moving out forever. The idea of having my own place is lonely and scary. It’s not ideal.
3. My personals ad… Well, of course I didn’t run one, or even write one, but I’m single and hoping to meet the right man… ‘maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but mayBE tomorrow.’
4. Book for the book club… yeah, I’m still not done with it, though I’m close. I’m going to go try to finish it now. How about I pick out the next book?

Could I write about anything more interesting, devoted readers? I don’t think so.

Car Shopping

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 11:15 am

So I need to buy a car. Probably within a month.

I went car shopping on Saturday and fell in love with the new Mazda 3, the car that replaced the Mazda Protege. It’s really cool. It looks cool and it is especially fun to drive. Cars aren’t supposed to be fun to drive. What’s the deal? It is an automatic that drives like a stick… you just put it in “manual” mode. There is also volume controls for the cd player on the steering wheel. After driving that car, everything else was boring.

Toyota has a steal of a deal going on right now with the Corolla. I could get one for cheaper than an Echo (which is what I wanted before I found the Mazda 3). I like the Echo because it looks different and it gets great gas mileage, one of the best for a non-hybrid car. Corolla is so boring. But it’s a good car and it’s very affordable… sigh!

What do I do?
I’m going back to Mazda tonight to get more info on the 3. Hopefully I can get a good deal on it. If not, it could be Corolla city for me.

Hot or Not?

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 11:26 pm

So my friend showed me some ‘hot or not’ website, which I had not heard of, where you can post your picture and have people rate you on a ‘hotness’ scale from 1 to 10. So facetiously I ask those of you who have seen my hotness, am I hot… or not? Cast your ballots here! 1 to 10!

You know, one of my friends named her car ‘The Hotness,’ and I would have to say all of my friends are at least as hot as Erin’s minivan. (Erin, if you read this, take no offense… your car has been featured in my web journal! The Hotness is now a superstar!)

Good Things, Not So Good Things…

Good Thing: Eating breakfast with your guinea pig.
No So Good Thing: Eating your guinea pig with breakfast.

It’s amazing the variance in meaning if you just switch around a few words. (And to those of you who think eating Nala for breakfast would be good… shame on you.)

Got any good weekend plans?

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 12:10 pm

I had a professor in undergrad who always asked that first thing on Friday morning when we had his class. Monday morning he would ask “got any good weekend stories?” And this was to a class of about 550 students… the largest class I have ever taken.

I’m going to Kirksville, capital of fun. Yeah, right. (“gotta live, gotta live, gotta live in… Kirksville”) But I get to see my old friends and the band Guster. Gotta live… it up while I’m still young.

I ran into Thatcher yesterday, if anyone knows who that is. It was pretty weird.

SWF seeks man who can breathe…

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 10:35 pm

A few weeks ago I was reading the personals ads in the Riverfront Times just for fun. I saw one ad that was really funny, and it made me think… ‘if I was going to write a personals ad, what would I say?’

So I have two questions…
1. If you were going to write a personals ad, what would you write?
2. If you were going to write a personals ad FOR ME, what would you write? (be nice)

Now I am afraid… very afraid. But curious. Will anyone reply? I guess we’ll find out.

Almost like a real journal entry…

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 8:35 pm

Happy Easter! I had a pretty good Easter. We did the wave at church. I think it was probably the coolest Easter service I’ve been to ever. I’m probably gonna break down and buy a Matt Maher CD somewhere. He seems to write a lot of cool stuff.

Thanks to everyone who gave me input on leasing an apartment for the summer. I decided to turn both options down and keep looking for something else. Anybody in need of a roommate? I am certain that I want to live close to my work for the summer. Hopefully something will come up for me in the next week or so. I might have to go walk around campus to find more signs for summer subleases.

My back is in tremendous pain today. I don’t know what happened. It normally hurts on the right side, but it now hurts on the left too! I hope this goes away. I hate dealing with back problems.

What’s on tap for this weekend… Guster concert in Kirksville!!! “So what you wish for won’t come true. You aren’t surprised, love, are you?” Guster is good. Hopefully Kirksville is good as well.

“Alleluia.
Holy, holy
Are you Lord God almighty”

From the Loop and I’m Proud…?

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 11:38 pm

To move or not to move, that is the bare bodkin.

Actually, I have made up my mind that I would like to move. It may only be a temporary thing, but seeing as my parents are charging me up the wazoo to live with them, I might as well live somewhere else instead.

So the idea that I have is to sublease an apartment during the summer. I looked at a really cute studio for $325 in Dogtown. It was really quiet there. Really nice and peaceful. I liked it a lot. I also looked at a place one block north of Delmar in the U City Loop (right behind Blockbuster, near Ciceros). There, I would have a roommate who is studying social work at Washington University. It seems like a pretty nice deal ($250). I’d be where it’s at. Both places are within a mile and a half of my office.

What should I do??? Where should I live? Or should I hold out? Maybe I’d find a better deal on a better place. *Sigh* I hate making decisions. I never know what to do. Help!!

Can I touch your hair?

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 12:09 am

Hey, hey, readers… I have been busy lately and not writing. I will try to work on this. My brother came back today from Colorado. He’s leaving again in a week! Why does everybody leave me???!!!!

Mike gave me this book for Christmas a few years ago. I’d like to share with you some of the wisdom I read in the book he gave me: “It is better to have loved and lost than to have hot needles slowly driven into your eyeballs.”

Speaking of reading, apparantly I am now in a book club. I’m supposed to be reading this book for our meeting sometime later this month, but alas, I haven’t been reading it. I even took it to Kansas City with me and carried it around all day on Saturday, but did I open it? No. I really want to be in the book club and I think it’s going to be a good book. This weekend is for reading. And for wasting time.

I like touching people’s hair.
