Help me out!
My school does a free concert every year. Freshman year was "Acoustic Dashboard Confessional" (aka Chris Carraba with a guitar) and last year was Lupe Fiasco (who performed for 5 minutes and stormed off stage, evidentially). Needless to say, I'm sick of shitty concerts! This year, they are holding the "official survey" through survey monkey, and there is no real way of checking who is sju and who isnt...

So please please pleaseee go to http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=NEnZ1yaznUzq5HW5_2fJLmIg_3d_3d and click on "rock" and then The Decemberists and Third Eye Blind :-D

Pet Peeves
You ever take one of those surveys and one of the questions is "worst pet peeve"? I've always wondered what my "worst pet peeve" actually was. Sure there are things that annoy me, but they tend to be little specific things that vary by situation. What was that one annoyance that would get me every time?

Well I've thought about it for a while and I think I've come up with my ultimate pet peeve.

update: court in Camden
So today I had my court date for the train accident. Weird cause I got 2 tickets in Harrisburg back in June, and that court date was supposed to be August 26th, and now that's been post-poned until late October.

trains, breaks, and shit..OH MY
In the past week I almost died twice, had a run in with Danazilla, had TMJ issues, and got shit on.


En route to Projekt Revolution, I got hit by a train. I was turning onto MLK Blvd from Haddon Ave in Camden, and I was not aware that train tracks even existed because there wasn't a single sign that said "RR crossing" or anything. So the light was green, I crossed, then I hear BEEP BEEP. I turned to my left and see the Riverline coming straight for me. I accelerated as fast as I could, but to no avail. The train won. My car died.

After the wreck was cleared, I went to the concert as planned. Who lets getting hit by a train stop them from a good show? Not I or my friends.


I take 476 to get home from work. While on 476, my breaks decided to stop working. Not completely..when I pressed the break all the way down, they barely slowed my car. So I put my hazards on and drove 40 mph on the highway. Needless to say, the other cars around me were not happy. Within 10 minutes, they started working again. Turns out they just needed some break fluid. But still, scary.

So I'm feelin pretty shitty and go to Nicole's house. I was in the mood for some smokin and chillin, yaknow? Then all of a sudden, I hear Dana-zilla in the next room. Danazilla is Nicole's crazy annoying neighbor who is a major drama queen. If I told her that I got hit by a train, she would just tell a story about how she almost died getting her hair colored or some shit like that. And if I proceeded to then bring up my breaks, she would bring up a car issue as well. No matter what could happen to me, Dana would one-up me..cause you know, she always has it the worst *rolls eyes.* She came over, asked how Ive been and I squeeked out a "good." Which instantly turned into a "WELL, I just got stuck in a tornado [um no, if you got stuck in the tornado, you'd be dead hunny], got locked out of my house, god I worked 40 hours a week while going to school last semester, and I cant believe I have to be a big person now...my rent is $1500 a month!" And I don't know what else she bitched about in that 5 minutes. I escaped soon after though.

So one may think that a home is a sanctuary, right? No. I go to sleep after all this, and around 1:30 AM my dog climbs into bed with me, shaking as if it were storming out. So I hold her and try to get her to calm down. Turns out, she had a stomach virus and SHIT ALL OVER ME. Massive amounts of diarreah all over me, and my bed.

Oh yeah, and my left jaw is hurting like a mofo. I have TMJ and sometimes it flares up.

So if you stumb your toe or something this week, take solace in knowing that you aren't me.

I feel ridiculous blogging anymore. I don't want to bitch and complain in here, nor do I feel like writing down some of my truest emotions. Take that away, and I feel that I have nothing worth blogging about.

I still read your (collective) entries, I promise.

I am seriously considering doing a peace corp tour right after graduation. Cept I was thinking more along the lines of a 1 to 1.5 year tour and their shortest tours are 27 months. Plus I NEED to pass my CPA and I'm afraid I will lose a lot of knowledge if I go on a tour right away..

I know I know. I never update. I'm sorry.

Basically my life this past semester was wake up, go to work, work, come home, eat, do some sort of school activity, pass out. Repeat.

"Although the praying mantis is known for its cannibalistic mating process in actuality it only occurs 5-31% of the time. Especially in laboratory conditions of bright lights and confinement, the female is more likely to eat the male as means of survival. "In nature, mating usually takes place under cover, so rather than leaning over the tank studying their every move, we left them alone and videotaped what happened. We were amazed at what we saw. Out of thirty matings, we didn't record one instance of cannibalism, and instead we saw an elaborate courtship display, with both sexes performing a ritual dance, stroking each other with their antennae before finally mating. It really was a lovely display". (7) There is one species, however, the Mantis religiosa, in which it is necessary that the head be removed for the mating to take effect properly. (5) Sexual cannibalism occurs most often if the female is hungry. But eating the head does causes the body to ejaculate faster."

interesting. I didn't quite know that. I thought the females always ate the male.

bone marrow donation.
A short story.
20 years ago, my brother died. He had lymphoma and a bone marrow transplant could have saved him. No one in my family matched him. When he was sick, the bone marrow registry was just getting started, so naturally they didn't find him a match.

20 years later, people still aren't registered.
20 years later, children still die, because a match is not found.

You all donate blood,
have you considered what you could do to really save a life?


Join. Please.

Actual testing is a simple saliva swab. You can either order a kit and pay a tax deductible $52 for tissue typing costs, or you can look up donation drives where they'll swab you for a reduced cost or for free (thanks to a sponser).

If you are matched, they will perform a minimally invasive procedure. No, it's NOT like how it was on Grey's Anatomy. They put you to sleep, and take out marrow from your hip or collar bone using a needle. When you wake, you will be sore at the injection spot (once again, not as bad as Grey's), and will experience cold like symtoms for 1-2 weeks.

However, your discomfort is NOTHING if it saves a life.

Day 983 of my captivity. My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.


The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a "good little hunter" I am.


There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of "allergies." I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.


I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded. The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicating with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now...
