when we rise it's like strawberry fields.

my parents have more of a social life than i do. (my dad is actually a downright player). joy. i want to get out and do something tonight (probably won't happen. well, maybe something, but nothing interesting) before the inevitable weekend of pain and studying sets in. as of now, i'm not very stressed, but i have complete faith that things will change.

my crazy grandma is in town! she is actually adorable, but crazy nonetheless. my mom will probably be like her when she gets old, but a little less new york and a little more berkeley. i'd like to hope a little less crazy as well, but we'll see. it was so cute today though, i come home and they were in the back yard putting up all of these colorful random string lights for my mom's party. (little suns, stars, peppers). my grandma was making a fuss about how my mom doubted her "dexterity". then they made me look around the house at all they had put up and expected me to share their adamant enthusiasm (which i tried to fake).

yikes i am painfully bored. i fucking love this song though. sarah mentioned it in her livejournal and i had to listen to it, multiple times. i'm alternating between acoustic and regular, trying to figure out which i like better.

this is tight, but kind of scary.

There has been a small outbreak of “zombism” in a small town near the border of Laos in North-Eastern Cambodia.
The culprit was discovered to be mosquitoes native to that region carrying a new strain of Malaria which thus far has a 100 percent mortality rate and kills victims in fewer than 2 days.

After death, this parasite is able to restart the heart of its victim for up to two hours after the initial demise of the person where the individual behaves in extremely violent ways from what is believed to be a combination of brain damage and a chemical released into blood during “resurrection.”

Cambodian officials say that the outbreak has been contained and the public has no need to worry.

General Ary Serey had this to say, "We have obtained samples of this new parasite and plan to learn how it starts the heart and other major organs of the deceased. We intend to use this to increase the quality of life for all."

US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice opposed the plan saying that the Cambodian government holds a great biological weapon and should destroy it immediately. Cambodian officials have yet to comment.

A United Nations team will be dispatched to Cambodia to confirm the safety of biological research in Cambodia.

    bright eyes-something vague.

i shouldn't update so much.

remember those yogurts that had sprinkles in the lid that you used to eat when you were a kid? i haven't had one of those in ages. i kind of want one though, the idea of having yogurt and sprinkles in such an efficient packaging gets me juiced. although i think that they are trix, and i don't like trix because they are so mean to the rabbit in the commercials. one of these days one of his disguises will work.

i think i'm hitting the sack early tonight. i mean, i just made a post about yogurt and sprinkles and trix and poor advertising, so i must be pretty tired. it was kind of a boring night, pretty much all of my friends just dissapeared or were studying. i did get to go to coffee with ben, which was fun! he is such an awesome kid and has the best taste in music. ever. i was about to go to luke's to watch a movie or something, but i'm too tired to drive all the way back out to berkeley. maybe tomorrow (especially if yogurt sprinkle lids can somehow be incorporated). jesus, these kids need to get their licenses.

oh i also did 30 practice history mc's tonight! i probably had time to take a whole mock test, but wasting time is more fun.
