When he left her behind, it never crossed her mind there is no Arizona

My toe still hurts, and is actually swollen now. It's frickin' huge! And looks all yucky and bruised.

Mentally, though, I'm feeling a bit better. I sort of spazzed for a little bit (it was really fucking weird), then I started to get my mind off of things and forget about it.

So yes. I need sleep now, because my computer informed me that it is now Daylight Savings Time which means it's 3, and not 2. Damn. It's weird to think that you will not have lived through the hour of 2 o'clock on April 7, 2002. It's just gone. *bam* like that. You can't say that you were up at 2:30 because there was no 2:30. It doesn't exist...unless of course, you live somewhere that doesn't change clocks, like half of Indiana.

Goodnight moon.

Good morning beautiful, how was your night?

For some reason, this song comes into my head every time I take a shower in the morning. *shrugs*

My body alarm woke me up with 40 minutes to get ready for the birthday party. I have about two minutes before I need to go. Go me. (Although I still haven't bought a present. Oh well)

I want to go to Best Buy today. I think I will.

My toe doesn't hurt as much, but it's still swollen and I'm wearing flip flops. It's 40 degrees out.

Damn, I think there was something else. *shrugs* Oh well.

Bye all! I'll update later.

    Good Morning, Beautiful - some country singer (in head)

You know we've got to find a way to bring some understanding here today

My day.

Filled with insights and goals. I'm actually feeling pretty good.

So at the party today, which was a big lunch, I start talking to Allie about this thing I saw on the AIM advertisement. It advertised the European AIDS Vaccine Ride. I mentioned how I would love to do that, and the site, http://www.bethepeople.com/ also advertised other AIDS and Breast Cancer walks.

She and I already have this thing. She's a runner, so one of her life goals is to run in a 100 mile Ultra-marathon. Mine is to do the Tour de France. I just think it's really awesome and would love to do that.

So this summer, I have decided to work on getting in shape. Eating healthier, biking more (or at all for that matter), and then maybe sometime in the near future I will be able to do a 500 mile, 7-day ride to find an AIDS Vaccine from Amsterdam to Paris. Or if not Europe, then the 500 mile, 6-day ride from the Twin Cities to Chicago, or the 5-day, 400 mile ride from Montreal to Portland, Maine. I don't know...something that feels like I have accomplished something big.

I think the thing most within my reach right now would be the Breast Cancer 3-day walk (60 miles) from Kenosha to Chicago, so maybe that could be my goal for next summer, or the summer after, provided I train for it.

Also today, I bought The Making of What's Going On?, which provided further inspiration to do something good that could help others.

Hmm. Must continue to think about this.

[Oh, I also made the goal to read Blonde by Joyce Carol Oates (a 740-page novel about Marilyn Monroe) over the summer.]

    What's Going On? - in my head...the all star version

I don't expect my love affairs to last for long, never fool myself that my dreams will come true


I have done all of my homework besides Calculus. Heh. What's new, eh?

I'm feeling a little down. I suppose that's nothing new either. Homework doesn't usually make me want to jump up and down grinning. But still. Bleh.

I'm really tired, so I think I'm just going to finish my Calc homework fairly quickly, then hit the sack.
