(unlikely dreams)

zaterdag 4 september 2004

My body is falling apart. Not only have I been coughing for almost two weeks and having stomach cramps at random times, but now I have another sensitive tooth, this time on the other side. I mentioned the first one to the dentist when I was there, but they said they couldn't see anything, and it went away after a few days... so this one's probably nothing too, but still, annoying.

Aside from that, things are fine. The landfall time for this hurricane keeps getting pushed further and further back. They were saying tonight; now, because it's all but stalled just north of the Bahamas, they say it could be as late as tomorrow night. Good thing Monday's Labor Day, so we don't have classes... but at this rate, Tuesday's classes could be canceled too.

I've been passing the time straightening up my room a bit and organizing all the little things - earrings, toiletries, photos. What I really should be doing is working on that second homework assignment, the one for LIN 3201, but I don't even know where to start. I don't even recognize the things I'm being asked. Actually, what I really should be doing is printing out the class notes for anthropology and swimming, seeing as the power's probably going to go out tonight/tomorrow/next month when the hurricane gets here.

Not much more to tell. I think I'm going to go eat a frozen dinner (still trying to wipe out everything in the fridge for the potential power outage) and watch a movie. I watched Selena last night; that movie always makes me so sad. She's still one of my favorite artists - hard to imagine how big she might have become if she'd lived and actually completed that English crossover album. Most of her music is in Spanish, but the few English songs she did complete are still pretty widely played: "I Could Fall in Love," "Dreaming of You," "I'll Never Get Over You (Getting Over Me)"... even though she was killed in '95.

Anyway, the movie choices for today are down to Stepmom, Practical Magic, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and The Next Karate Kid. (Oh, and The Princess Diaries II, if it ever finishes downloading.) Votes, anyone?
