i'm such a victim of internet fads!!! I join everything, it's absurd, but this...this is so genius. CHATROULETTE, basically it's the love child of skype and aim, except you don't know anyone. so it's pretty skeevy, but also amazing. i have talked to so many europeans and man are they nice. I promised i wouldn't do it without a friend, but I LIED. i chatted to so many nice people, a comic book illustrator from Belgium and a high school student from paris and some lovely kids in orlando, and a sock puppet. there are plenty of perverts wanking it though. beware. i had to warn a family with children of the dangers. what a helpful internet citizen i am. what a boring post. here is a clip of some kids from my school..it's hilarious.

my friend erika calls it anal rape day. Except they can't sell cards for anal rape day. I've sort of been watching the olympics, sort of I'm morally opposed to it. Mostly I like to see them go around tight corners. I actually have nothing to write about, because not much really happens in my life. I'm reading a trashy romance novel about a young maid that goes to work for a rich Italian man. Of course she's in distress and he's all abrasive and macho and she sleeps with him all nasty like. The writing is terrible. I'm also reading "Girl Power" the much talked about book on Girl Bands. I think maybe I'm contradicting myself. I'm ashamed I can't read Joyce or Chaucer with the same zeal, though I think I am in the majority. Why should I think about metaphors and idioms when I can read about a well hung Italian and a large bosomed lady having sex on a vacuum. Tomorrow I am seeing St. Vincent with my pals from way back in middle school. Should be fun, plus we're getting pizza...YUM.
Middle school reminds me a lot about the people I respect the most...the handicapped...the SASSY handicapped. There was this crippled boy that wheeled around, and when I was a freshman I was all too sympathetic even clearing the entire hallway so he could wheel safely. He was hit my a bus when he was young and suffered some brain damage. It's all too natural to feel for someone in this condition and my friends and I did, until we found out that he was a complete dick! He swore all the time and was always really loud and never went to class. No staff member ever dared to scold him for anything. He was practically untouchable. One of my pretty friends smiled at him and in return he glared at her. That was the end of her rope I guess because everytime after that she said he deserved to be hit by the bus because he was an ass. Priceless! The best though was the relentless sympathy from our CREEPO gym teacher (that is almost identical to Jeff Foxworthy,) who hit a boy in a wheelchair with his car and has since forth been wracked with guilt.
Anyway...back to having nothing to say I think I will end with a food reccomendation. FAGE GREEK YOGURT WITH HONEY.
BEST THING EVER.

I started looking for a job this fall in Iowa City. I really just want to work where I can be around books and maybe not talk to people. I'm so sick of my grocery job I could scream. I emailed a bookstore and I'm applying at the co op. We'll see what comes of it. I still have to finish my application for the Iowa Writers Living Dorm. AHHH! So much to do, i feel like a baby still.
Watching Roseanne. AGAIN. I'm always watching Roseanne. I really wish I was Roseanne. She's got it all figured out. Oh I forgot to mention. I finally got productive and finished a zine I started over 4 months ago!
