We were the movie mulvaneys

So the movie version was okay. I liked some of the synthesis they did between book events, didn't care for the changes they made to Marianne, but overall, they did an excellent job with the movie.

I need my Kate. It rained today, it's the perfect night for a walk, and I have no accomplice.

sigh, at least she'll be back soon.

An excerpt from my type of educational reading

Just was talking in a comment about an article I was reading on the Good Vibes website about Terms used by Porn Industry insiders, and wanted to share this excerpt with you all.

After the initial filming, performers of both sexes -- and not always the ones who did the acting -- add what's known as an "m-and-g track," for "moan and groan," a separate audio track of rehearsed expressions of rapture that are overdubbed -- that explains all the times the movements of her lips just don't match up to the "Oh, baby."

I think I have found my calling in life. This would be so fun. I could say, "No, I'm not a porn star, but I play one vocally."

Now I know you all want to read it, but won't admit it, so I will post a link.

yeah, I like cats, but if I ever start journals for each of my pets, and write in them FROM THEIR POV, shoot me. But get me really drunk first.

It takes all kinds I guess.

It's official, I miss my tongue ring.

I can't believe it took me this long to be able to say that.

I don't know what I should do. I can't afford to get it redone now, anyway.

Stuff to think about when you are hours for sleep.

i'm going for a walk.

Redemption

Well, sportsfans, I've done it again. Stayed up way too late so I have no chance of fixing my sleep schedule. I am nocturnal by nature, and lately, I've let it take over.

Had a bad Mt Pleasant night, but it has passed. I went to Meijer after midnight to buy Mullholland Dr. Of course they don't have it. Probably no where else will have it either. This caused me to mutter "I hate this town" something I haven't said for over a year. Have I made a mistake by deciding to stay here for my Master's degree?

Since I was in no mood to go to bed, I wandered around campus. After awhile, I ended up in front of Warriner. Out of nowhere, I start laughing, that deep extremely loud I-used-to-be-a-singer-so-I-laugh-from-my-diaphragm bellow that you either hate or you love, depending on your tolerance for public attention. Part of me was shocked, thinking I was becoming hysterical over the whole issue. But then I realized, where else have I ever felt so comfortable that I can walk virtually anywhere and still have that feeling of home? Standing in the drizzle, the smell of worms and rain and earth, Warriner outlined by the overcast sky, and it feels like home. This whole damned town is my home. For better or worse, this is my home, at least for the next few years. And I love it. I hate that I am cut off from quality theater and movies, but that isn't all Mt P is to me anymore. It's people, places, and memories that have touched my heart and helped to strengthen my soul. Mt Pleasant is the place where I came closest to hurting myself; Mt Pleasant is the place where I've become so strong that I doubt I will ever consider hurting myself again.

I can't believe that Kate missed the first Spring walk of the year. At least she was with me in my thoughts

The ghost of summer's past

Laughing in the Warriner mall tonight reminded of other moments of late night performance that I've had around this campus.

Both of these events were outside the music building, however, and took place during the summers I worked here, Summer 1999 and Summer 2001, respectively (I was here Summer 2000 also but I don't have an embarassing moment that fits this equation).
