I have no blog because the only thing I’ve done since school ended last Tuesday is eat holiday fudge and write poems worthy of AA. Nothing says Merry Christmas like a poem about denial! So I’ll spare you my list of bah-humbugs because most of them are dumb, and some of them are just embarrassing, like … Continue reading Christmas: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
I admit I did it. I fell prey to the craze and wandered into the bookstore to pick up a copy of 50 Shades of Grey. I waited as long as I could before making the purchase because I did not want to financially support the enterprise, but alas, I was in need of an … Continue reading 50 Shades of Grey: the literary libido killer.
As a tribute to my Australian visit, I compiled a list of notable things. Tips for Travelers (most of which I learned the hard way): A US citizen needs a visa to visit (VISIT) Australia.

I can wait no longer– everyday I am shocked just a little bit more. Don’t get me … Continue reading The only thing that’s green about Roswell is the aliens
I met with my thesis advisor (ahem, “my third reader”) who has now given me deadlines for writing. My first is Sunday (10 pages) and my next is Wednesday (10 pages). And I have…two pages. So I’m going to take a hiatus from writing a decent entry of all the things that have suddenly struck me … Continue reading What’s with all the paprika?

These moments were determined by a sense of long-lasting (at least the entire day) euphoria and general extreme … Continue reading Top 10 of 2010
