Hah, good idea. I’m wearing a navy hoodie cardigan and gray pants. Also my name is Lekha, but it would be pretty damn awesome to be called Magnetic Crotch IRL.
I hope it doesn’t rain.
So long, supposedly almost free trip to Berkeley. I will not suffer a red-eye with a 3 hour layover in JFK for you.
Also, having to submit a ton of forms and wait 8 weeks for a reimbursement that only covers half of the flight price is just insulting. Much like your laughable stipend, which would enable me to possibly rent out a nice hole in the ground on the outskirts of Oakland.

Is it wrong that I know find Boyd Crowder kind of hot?
1) The prof is not even going to be there.
2) It’s the day we usually work on our research projects and no one actually does anything anyway.
3) It’s raining and the class is a 15 minute walk away.
This is a way stronger case than I usually make to myself when I skip classes. Definitely not going.
Close, but no cigar. The appearance is not as pleasing, and the chocolate tastes more fakey.
Need to seek out some girl scouts for the real thing.
Any show that has Amy Sedaris as a guest star is my kind of show.
I have been seriously trying to cut back on my perfume habit, because I already have way more than I will ever be able to use up, but … goddamn do I love famous French courtesans.
Because a milkshake would be the best breakfast ever before my flight.
I just had a giant (bigger than Sbarro) slice and I have never felt better.
Just did a new manicure with the new China Glaze colors, Sea Spray and Pelican Gray. They are really really lovely - I’m usually not crazy about greys, but these are so light that they look springy and fresh instead of bland and muddy, at least on me (I’m looking at you, Recycle.)
I really need to catch up to my polish collection. I have so many colors I haven’t used yet: Katy Perry Teenage Dream (which has awesome chunky holo glitter)/Black Shatter, Butter London All Hail McQueen, and some random metallic foils and shades of purple.
Awesome. I will try to handle the enormous pressure of thinking of a place to go that will show off Durham (and myself) to best advantage.
Yep, I am at Duke. Sadly, most people wouldn’t consider living here unless it was for work/school.
What you do sounds pretty cool though - I am always impressed by people who are actually able to work in their field. It’s a rare enough occurrence.
Aw, I actually have class late Tuesdays and Thursdays (until 8pm,) So that won’t work for me - maybe another week?
and I just finished my thesis draft thingy. Why the fuck do I always do this?
And it went out with a whimper. Dorcas Lane is going to marry a guy we only met six episodes ago? WTF. Also, Laura’s story was pathetic, considering she’s the narrator, and there was no closure there. And everyone else magically got everything they wanted (Minne and Alf, Alf’s mother, Thomas Brown and Margaret) except Laura’s mom, whose husband is apparently too busy acting in another period drama to come back for the finale. Just way too neat and tidy and BORING.
I am so disappointed. Every other minute of this series was pretty damn awesome, and this is how it ends?
Let us roll all our strength and all
Our sweetness up into one ball,
And tear our pleasures with rough strife
Through the iron gates of life:
Thus, though we cannot make our sun
Stand still, yet we will make him run.
