if it's the last thing we ever do

I just traded up donuts for a baguette. Sooo unsatisfying. But maybe the cherries will do. Good ol' cherries.

I think I'm closing up shop here soon. No one updates their blogs, and no one but a handful of people read mine, so I'm not sure what the point of having a public blog is. I've started writing most stuff to myself, and (as you may have noticed) putting the internet detritis up here.

Tomorrow night is happy hour with the class I TA'd. I set up a SurveyMonkey survey to determined "Where will drinking happen?" In the emails back and forth, there were some running gags about a) one student being a stripper b) me being an alcoholic (because I said "You guys better come to happy hour becuase if I end up at C&A drinking alone....it'll be just like every other Tuesday, I guess."). I think the latter joke is most hilarious since I won't drink. Tonight I need to finish a lot of things, which I've been needing to finish for a while (I'm just going to keep blaming the Twilight books for all my problems as long as I deem necessary).

Meeting someone at the grocery store name "Caddy" made me hate Austin for some reason. But it may have been influenced by the fact that I could smell the oak in the air today, and it was a beautiful day, and I wanted to curl up in a ball on the stone bench outside because I missed New Orleans so much.

I'll be sad if you stop :-(
You're right, there are few people still keeping on top of their blogs. I feel like the people that like doing it should continue! It'll be lonely on the internet without you.

Aw. I'm not one to talk since I've basically stopped blogging -- but I'd miss your blog too!

Thanks, y'all. That was very rude of me to say no one updates their blogs, when obviously the ones I read are updated (G and TB excepted). I guess I'm greedy, and I want updates every 5 minutes because I enjoy them so much. But I can't find anything to update myself. Maybe I just need a new blog for inspiration. It's going to take a while for me to archive all my old entries, so it'll be a while, whatever is going to happen.

I think part of it is I can't update when I'm really down or stressed because it worries Mom. And lately, I've been really down and stressed, so I feel like there is no inspiration, but I could write volumes if I found self-pity a reasonable blog entry. So maybe if I go on Livejournal where I can lock my entries, that would work.

I know that I haven't updated my blog in a week, but YOU CANNOT. Your blog is one of the mainstays of my daily routine and it feeds my soul! Karam, you better start up your blog again too.
