7:45 pm - best day in a long time
my flowers are growing!!! they are sprouting up all over the place. Paxton gate sells miracle dirt, i think.

also, the man who sings at the powell bart station on wednesday afternoons is worth stopping to listen to.

4:45 pm - progress!
last night walking home from a friends place at around 2 am, i passed by two guys in a minor fight in the street. one was hitting the other in the head and yelling something in portuguese. afraid that he was robbing the guy, I was about to cross the street, when suddenly i realized i could understand what he was saying: "me dê o pó!", or, "give me the coke!". an example of the informal imperative! my brain is finally adjusting! feeling much safer (i mean come on, dude just wanted his coke) i continued walking home.

6:55 pm - 5 minutes of internet
i miss hot dogs so much.
[and everybody else too]

after 5 days in brazil any confidence i ever had in my ability to speak/understand portuguese has been shot to hell. which is ok since so many people here speak english that if you start trying to speak portuguese after letting you struggle for a few minutes they will just answer in english. i have to go because my time is up! tchau!

10:44 am - someday somebody will want to know, and my college education will have been justified
Lists, lists and LISTS. A surfeit of random knowledge that will not help me in any of my classes:

during an outbreak of the sleeping sickness in 1908 in São Tomé, the cocoa plantation owners attempted to get rid of the disease-carrying tsetse flies by making their slaves work while wearing dark clothing covered with a sticky substance, essentially turning them into Human Flypaper.

11:34 pm - je n'aime pas
Today a straight man gave me a hair cut that i LOATHE. its all layered and short and asymetrical which either makes it a) very bad or b) very trendy. it is all of the above and i despise it. i'll dye it in layers and it will look pretty eventually but i Liked having longish hair!!! medium short hair takes so much more effort. sigh. i need a hat.
UGH I HATE HAIRCUTS!

8:50 pm - I am pissed!
And that exclamation point is not so much a denotation of urgency/extreme emotion as it is a math function. I'm talking about the one where all the numbers adding up to X are multiplied together in sequence. I imagine it looks something like Pissed x Pissed x Pissed x Pissed x Pissed x Pissed x Pissed... all the way up to the numerical value of pissed. Which i guess in this case is 7.

current mood: 5,040

7:32 am - and i walked out with only 1 red mitten
right now on my desk there is a cup of coffee on one side and a cup of some old, vauguely alchoholic substance on the other. I feel like Alice.

tentative schedule :

8 am- class
9:10- continue studying french
drink more coffee
11- ace french test and forever win the heart of kindly french teacher
12:10- drink more coffee and write easy, triflin' one page essay on Aenead [oh wait, i already did ......in my sleep!]
2- heroic epic. explain to TA why absence at last section was unavoidable due to extreme malaise. after no sleep and many cups of coffee looking convincingly terible should pose no challenge.
3:10- drink more coffee and..... go running? is that possible?
4:30- clean house [coffee!]
5:30- asseble various elements of appearence, and get fooooooood with brian.
7- buy alcohol for parrrtayyy [???]
8- re-assemble self so as not to scare guests away
9-9:30- sing/tell dan happy birthday
10- sink gratefully into bottle.


"Let it always end this way
Let me lie now where I'm lying
I can't stand, it's no use trying"


class time. where the fuck is laura.
