(unlikely dreams)

vrijdag 4 november 2005

I'm still digging the new layout. The only thing I don't like is that something about it does not like unusual symbols, such as the copyright symbol, the 'i' with two dots over it, or any quotation marks which were first created in Word and then pasted into Blogger. Weird, because it's the same font I used before. But I suppose I can work with that. I just can't use the word 'naïve' anymore. (See? See?!)

Anyway, today was decent - Dia and I watched A Knight's Tale, I was one of only three people to get As on the Spanish test, there were French fries at dinner, and after the performance of my creative writing dialogue, the (male) classmate who did it with me turned to me and sighed, "You're such a good writer!" *glow*

Anyhow, since I seem to be infinitely more productive when I make task lists (11 of the 12 tasks on the last one got done!), here is one for the weekend.

- do laundry
- revise creative writing dialogue

- work on thesis
- work on creative writing short story
- read more of my Jack the Ripper book
- go on a long bike ride
- buy dessert, milk, and OJ at the AH

- swim 5k
- work on thesis
- listen to Jaguars game

They're all so short, I should be able to do them... right? Somewhere in there, I also need to return Marijt's books and slap an angry note on Jac's door telling him to buy some goddamn toilet paper already... but I don't think those things are really list-worthy.

Off to puzzle over next semester's rent application now.
