4:50 pm - The finish line is within sight...
I have a total of five days of college left. Here's what's coming up:

1. Final exam (identifications and a possibly an essay) on Thursday in my European history class. >>> need to study for that.

2. Final paper due on Friday in my African-American history class. 3 pages done out of 12.* >> will probably have to speed write after my history final.

*What sucks is, I work on it at work too, and I think that i have 6 pages done at work. Unfortunately, I apparently haven't emailed myself a more recent copy, so I fear I am wrong. Damn damn damn.

9:10 am - I am so grateful
That I am completely unfamiliar with racial segregation. We are watching a film in class right now on real estate and black families in New Jersey in the 1960s, and it's kind of hard on me. Like, these people are trying to find any white homeowner willing to sell to them, and there's "white residential areas," and it's just... stunning. Or one white woman is interviewed, who lived in an integrated neighborhood, and she says, "Of course, I was concerned at first, for the first two weeks, but after a while I was no longer concerned."

What freakin' concerns? I just can't comprehend.

12:24 am - Oscar's song
Ohh little walter
prancing in the garden
looking for some vegetable
and some rice
then a little bird came
and talked in his ear
it said cheep cheep cheep cheep
walter you're a cat.
Then it flew away and then it came back

1. You are walking in the woods. You are not alone. Who is with you?

2. You are walking in the woods. You see an animal. What kind of animal?
an owl

3. What interaction takes place between you and the animal?
We stare at each other and it winks.

4. You walk deeper in the woods. You enter a clearing, and before you is your Dream House what does it look like?
Kind of Victorian. A large porch, lots of windows, curtains open and billowing in the breeze, garden with vegetables and flowers.

5. Is your dream house surrounded by a fence?

6. You enter the house. You walk into the dining room and see what on the table?
A small cloth, a candleholder, flowers in a vase, and a loaf of bread.

7. You exit the house and a cup is on the ground, what kind is it?
White china with blue patterns.

8. what do you do with the cup?
Nothing...? Pick it up and set it, upside down, on the steps. Yes, that last bit.

9. You walk to the edge of the property where you find yourself standing at the end of a body of water, what kind of water is it?

10. How will you cross the water?
I don't want to cross it. I want to sit at the edge and look at the sun.

7:45 pm - Turned in my senior thesis and got drunk
after turning in my senior thesis, myself and seven or so compatriots from my rather small senior thesis class went to a local sausage pub (Schultzys) and got drunk. I had about 64 ounces of beer over a few hours. Damn. Much much fun, we all laughed and enjoyed and made plans to hang out again sometime this week because we've all dealt with each other for at least two quarters now. Like, one of us had to leave early and we may not see him again, and a couple of the girls cried a little... and that was before any alcohol was purchased.

THen I rode the bus home by myself in the rain while Oscar (who had come to meet us) walked one of the lone girls home (she lives near us, I was in flipflops) and I was the crazy person on the bus. Drunk, wearing flipflops in the rain, no sweater or coat, and carrying a large china dish (don't ask)

What a fucking fantastic way to end my biggest college project

11:20 am - I think the Grammys plus Valentine's Day have left Oscar confused...
He just said to me, in his sleep, "You're my favorite album... of the music culture, Roxanne."

"I think if I was in a gay relationship with Keith [a bald black gay man], I'd have the urge to kiss him on his bald head a lot."

2:17 pm - Ready for spring
I have nothing against winter, I just am ready now for spring. I am excited for the moment when the air is just warm enough to wear t-shirts and no sweater, but still chilly enough that you wouldn't consider shorts (unless you're Oscar). I am excited to see the flowers begin to come up and the trees burst forth into bloom.

Too bad that winter technically began, like, nine days ago.

11:27 am - Bijou
The results came back, and Bijou does in fact have testicular cancer. Had, maybe, because they took both his testicles out? Anyway, yeah. It looks like it may be one of the rare malignant forms, though I (obviously) hope it's not.

The good news is, this type of cancer only metastasizes in less than 10% of cases, so yeah...

He's getting an abdominal/chest x-ray sometime this week. In best-case scenario, he'll have to have those every 3 to 6 months for remainder of his (hopefully long) life.

Poor Bijybeebee.

1:39 pm - Oy
Last night I was driving a car when the engine seized at 70 miles on the highway; I managed to get us onto an offramp and on the shoulder. It took us about three hours to get home, half of us in the tow truck and half in a taxi.

Today, when the plumber placed the wrench on my pipes under my sink to remove the P-trap or whatever its called, the whole under-sink apparatus literally wrenched apart (ha ha) and burst, because it's apparently the original pipes.

6:28 pm - Mary just called...
To complain that she hasn't yet gotten her save-the-date... which we haven't yet mailed to anyone... because we gave Travis his in person, since we saw him for Thanksgiving.

3:58 am - Iambic tetrameter verse that I dreamt
And yet we gaze across the room
and know our fate, alas, full well-
weft and warp upon life's loom,
no sooner born than sent to hell.
