One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next three sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
6. Tag five other people to do the same.

This time round the show was the 12-day public humiliation of British sailors and marines who were captured by Revolutionary Guards in the Persian Gulf and were due to be released on April 4. Day after day Iranian television broadcast the spectacle, part farce and part menace, of the hapless Britons taking turns to confess their "tresspassing" into Iranian territorial waters, apologise for their misdeed and praise the kindness of the Iranian aurthorities. Handwritten letters from the one woman in the group, Faye Turney, professed friendship with the Iranian people and demanded the withdrawal of British forces from Iraq.

I need a job for the summer. Badly.

The idea of not getting a job scares and excites me. Scary because I need money. Exciting because please oh please I don't want to work in an office again I don't want to sit there and type in numbers and wear oppressing clothes and uncomfortable heels that give me blisters when I walk more than two feet and function as a machine I am so much more than their machine and I would rather give up all of the money in the world than let them take away my humanity and my creativity and my free will and turn me into something little more than a glorified robot.

Oh, and the minor detail that my parents would kill me.

I was just in the laundry room looking through the "lost and found pile" of things that got mixed into other people's wash, left in the dryer, etc. to make sure none of it was mine. My eye caught a GIANT thong. I mean giant. Think sumo wrestler. So I did what any normal (crazy?) person would do; out of extreme curiousity, I absolutely had to check the tag on this giant thong to see the size. Maybe it was a way to say to myself "see, this size XXXL woman is comfortable with her body, you should be too!"

Of course, a very large girl walks in at the very moment that I am examining said piece of underwear. I'm not sure if it was hers, but I wasn't about to go into my explanation just in case it was. I put it down hurriedly and spent the next 10 minutes folding laundry in the most awkward silence of my life.

Yes, the quality of my once-every-six-months LJ updates is going seriously downhill, I know.

Pi was a bad movie. I'm convinced that its cult following consists of people afraid to say it was bad for fear of being perceived as dumb.

It's been such a long time since my last real post, and I have two hours until I have to be at play practice.

After reading that first sentence, I bet you thought that a major update was coming. Nope. No update. Sorry, but I am, after all, a senior =)

I'm just going to enjoy it while it lasts.

Mrs. Gaydos told me in third grade that sunlight takes 8.3 minutes to reach the Earth's surface.

"So if the Sun went out right now, I wouldn't know until eight minutes later?"
"Right, not until eight-point-three minutes later."

I quickly calculated what time it would be exactly eight minutes and eighteen seconds from that moment. I couldn't help feeling cheated and even slightly disappointed when the time came and went, and the sun didn't blow up.
