All right, here we go. Though I've been on a reading spree, I haven't actually read a book since the new year began. I am going to take the 50 book challenge and wean myself off of the succubus TV. My first selections are below (as they are already checked out of the library):

1. Orlando by Virginia Woolf
2. The Letters of Vita Sackville-West to Virginia Woolf
3. On Illness by Virginia Woolf
4. To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
5. Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson

Taking suggestions.
I was wondering if anyone could recommend a moving company that they'd had a good experience with. If it matters, we;re moving within Edgewater at the end of February. We don't need a huge truck, but we do need conscientious movers who won't damage our things in the 10 blocks and 5 cumulative flights of stairs.

We'd prefer not to use movers, but only one of us (Roommate) can get the last day of February off of work, and there's a possibility we'll have to move twice if we don't do it this way (once to a storage space, then to the apartment).

Dire warnings to stay away from a certain mover also appreciated

Grilling a sandwich in bacon grease probably somewhat defeats the intended purpose of the George Foreman Grill.

I am so grateful for brilliant twisted queers right now.

Today's a good day to move to California.

Thanks to [ profile] mr_heathen for pointing this out. I think this is one of the more shocking and distressing musical choices I've seen recently. Not as much the audio as the eye-searing imagery.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who thinks of death when watching holiday movies.

I'm also kind of thinking about composing some sort of ode out of your responses to the first question. Whether that happens probably depends in part on whether I'm alone with the whiskey and nothing on TV this week.
Go to and copy the top hits from the year you turned 18. Strikethrough the ones you don't like, bold the ones you do, italicize the ones you know but neither like nor dislike. The ones you don't know leave plaintext.

Dudes, I know you all already are aware that I am quite awesome. What I don't think you realize is that I am so awesome that the calendar of the Roman Empire centered around my birth. Thousands of years before I was even born! Isn't that amazing? Check it out!

You totally forgot about this, didn't you?

I think I found my root.

It was one of those mornings today. I was a little restless in my sleep, but when the alarm went off I was one with my bed and snoozed until a little after six. Which meant I would be late if I did my typical routine. So I made myself the deal that if I could get my ass out of the house in 20 minutes I could get breakfast at Einstein's.

I have heard many a person complain that Chicago has no decent bagels, and they may well be right. Being the ignorant Midwesterner that I am, however, I wholly enjoy lox etc. on Einstein's Challah rolls. I get them about once a month, often under similar circumstances to today's self-bribing. Now I'm at work, well-rested, caffeinated and fed. I just need something to do.

ETA:Livejournal spell-check does not know "Challah". I am shocked and dismayed.

I have been supercranky all day. After a nap and a sandwich, I put together my cateye bike light and biked to the gym. Less than an hour later, sweaty and feeling a little less broken than the last time I went, I got back on the bike and rode home, in the best. mood. ever. I got home and was talking in exclamation points.

I love the gym! I'm all energized! With my blinky light! And my pants rolled up to my knees! [no lie] How did I forget about endorphins? They're nature's cocaine!

Except, of course, not as inherently likely to cause heart attack, arrest, or cartels.

This ties in nicely with my decision to join a basketball team, starting conveniently the week after my LSAT. As well as my plans to go snowboarding in California with my dad and sisters.

I'm eating a smoothie and remembering why exercise is the perfect cure for pining. Because endorphins are better than love.
