mental note: don't rely on the boyfriend to pick up the right kind of bread unsupervised.



mental note: don't expect roommates to clean up after themselves, it ain't gonna happen.



mental note: houseful of clumsy people + pale beige carpet = lots of stains







care to share in my mini rant?

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way
~Miyavi "Torture"

mental note: Eating pasta and marinara while wearing a white shirt is an accident waiting to happen.



mental note: The husband is not as impressed with my shiny silver toenails as I am. (Maybe he's just jealous.)



mental note: Never go to a thrift store on '50% off everything' day. Not if crowds, screaming children, and driving in circles in the parking lot looking for a space for 15 minutes freaks you out, anyway.

mental note- It's not wise to have a white couch and loveseat when you have a 3 year old boy ( and a husband, for that matter )

Addendum - Especially a husband who is a mechanic. Eeek! We can't have anything white or light-colored.

Mental note: don't hug people who fix bicycles for a living (ie. my dad) whilst wearing a white outfit.



Mental note: pens are for writing on paper.



Mental note: never, and I mean never, have dirty hands while handling two-hundred-year-old documents (I luckily haven't done this yet, and I intend to be extremely careful).

mental note: if you gain seven pounds, don't try to lose it by starving yourself for a few days, especially if your blood sugar tends to get dangerously low and by the end of the school day you're all spacy and hyper. Gah!!!



mental note: try not to fall in love with any more gay men.



mental note: when the lyrics on the CD you're listening to are extremely explicit, make sure to turn the sound on your headphones down...and remember not to sing along. this way your teachers won't think you're crazy and suggest counseling.



mental note: If you seek said counseling and your therapist makes you talk to a stuffed panda, get the hell out (if you're over the age of eight, that is).



mental note: cute little blinking penguins fix everything.

Mental Note: Peanut shells are just as messy as sunflower shells (even though peanuts taste better).



Mental Note:There really *is* such a thing as coffee that's too strong.



Mental Note: There is a right way and a wrong way of wearing underware. If the front feels loose and the back feels tight, then something needs correcting.



Mental Note: Going to places via the back roads is much more enjoyable than just getting there from the freeway and back roads also tend to yield some really cool things that wouldn't have been discovered otherwise.



Mental Note: Cute blinking penguins really *do* fix everything.



Mental Note: Fix typos before posting, not after.

- Don't wear dark grey and black while carving plaster

- Don't wear anything cute while babysitting a two year old

- Pens, pencils, and calculators are useless if you leave them in your locker or at home

- Same goes for money and drama costumes

Mental note: leave computer lab early enough to beat the sunset and thus not have to worry about the hooker area near the university after dark.



Mental note: Just because your host parents are vegetarians doesn´t mean they won´t serve you something you won´t like.



Mental note: Always start doing things earlier.



Mental note: When the alarm clock goes off, get up and stay up. Don´t conveniently forget this alarm clock has no snooze bar.



Mental note: Pick a computer in the lab that allows diskettes in the diskette slot, especially when writing articles and logging Scotland-search results.



Mental note: Don´t forget to remove said diskette when done using the computer.

Q: How many poets does it take to change a light bulb? A: 1001...one to change the bulb, 1000 to say it's already been done.

Mental note: When your back hurts from spending 4 1/2 hours in class, it´s not a good idea to go to the computer lab to research Scotland options and get sucked onto VB for several more hours.



Mental note: Next time, BEFORE your feet get Athlete´s Foot, get some of that nasty smelling creme and use it.

Mental note: Baths are good, but two or three a day is obsessive. You could dry up your skin that way.
