fave eps: spring break, the 1st L & L kiss, the one when lorelai tells emily they're "over"

i thank gg for turning me on to the dandy warhols, for bringing sebastian bach back into my life, and for helping me realize that eating can be a recreational activity.

long live: kirk's film, references to "cop rock" and "riding the bus with my sister," marty, and the rory-who-hung-out-with-marty

i will always want to be paris gellar.

Satan’s plan to destroy the U.S.

i feel like i am trying to fit myself into a pair of pants that not only no longer fit, but i am not even sure if i think they are cute anymore.  and were they always this short?

i am trying to complete cover letters to apply for jobs at duke in their women's center and women's studies dept.  it is making me feel like a huge loser, and i don't even think that i would enjoy the positions.  1) i don't want to work 40 hours a week when it isn't necessary; 2) i was a sucky student and i am kind of a sucky employee when i don't want to do the things i should be doing; 3) i don't want to measure myself on any scale that uses the word "success;" 4) i continue to wish that i could be an academic, although i know it is not a good fit for me, thus if i am going to work in "academia" i should probably work at some community college where i will not be continually in-hate with myself.  as much as i love self-deprecation, it would be nice to not exist in a stew of it.

but i feel a little stuck.  i feel like i will be going backwards if i take some part-time low-pay job.  my resume is bomb, even if i don't feel as cool as it paints me to be.  my vision of myself has always included that stupid notion of measurable achievement or "success."  and to most that know me, that is what gets reflected back to me.  even though i know everyone supports me, it feels damn weird to think about telling people that i am working at a coffee shop or trader joe's.  i don't want the jobs that i am suppose to have and i can't find the job that i want.  job-culture sucks.  but i might also just be really lazy.  it is such a fine line...

on top of everything, i feel that i have completely lost my wit.  if you see it, tell it i miss it and it didn't deserve a vacation so it needs to get it's ass home NOW.  i have a tube of cookie dough and we can watch ghost whisperer all it wants...

it is official.  we get to leave this town behind...

e got accepted to the phd at u of oregon today, right after he received finalized flight info for his trip to duke (they are flying him out to recruit/interview him).  he doesn't do that for another week, though, so we will have lots of time to debate and discuss which of these options would rock our world more.

either way i get to shop at tj's again, so color me delighted.

next we will just have to decide how long we will hang around here.  i had to sign another year lease this week even though ours does not end until august.  stupid college town.  so now we will have to deal with sublease paperwork.  oh, well. 

yay us!

on a completely related note, despite the fact that i seem to constantly dye it, i have found my 1st gray hair.

...i am very proud of you.

although it has given me a little bit of joy to join the group "i'm a little bit in love with jim halpert."  but i am easily pleased.
