So I tried to time my grocery purchasing perfectly to run out of groceries on Wednesday night. I figured I may have to throw in a purchased meal or bagel here or there, but I would be fine.
Tonight for dinner, I had a sprouted corn tortilla (WHICH ARE THE BEST THINGS IN GOD'S CREATION) with canned tomatoes and black beans (of course I have black beans, this isn't the apocalypse) and hot sauce. I also had chunks of firm (firm is better) tofu on the side. I washed this all down with a Ranier Tallboy (or, as my roommate Ainsley calls them, a Vitamin R).
The Rainier Tallboy may have had to do more with finals stress than lack of groceries, though.

1. Make itunes playlists.
2. Imagine Nicole wearing a crew neck sweatshirt with a picture of Ricky the Special Cat on it.
4. Look at pictures of Barack Obama holding babies.
5. Try to figure out when the Salt-n-Pepa show is going to be back on the air.
6. Eavesdrop on the people next to me at Starbucks.
7. Remember really funny things that happened at the Barn.
8. Look at pictures of Basset Hounds and picture Brutus learning how to wave.

"I don't want to be played by the girl-strings anymore. Shaking our heads and wringing our hands in sympathy with Sarah Palin is a disservice to every woman who has ever been unfairly dismissed based on her gender, because this is an utterly fair dismissal, based on an utter lack of ability and readiness. It's a disservice to minority populations of every stripe whose place in the political spectrum has been unfairly spotlighted as mere tokenism; it is a disservice to women throughout this country who have gone from watching a woman who -- love her or hate her -- was able to show us what female leadership could look like to squirming in front of their televisions as they watch the woman sent to replace her struggle to string a complete sentence together."

- That 2 month period where you never fully dry out.
- Riding my bike up hills.
- Running into people I have drunkenly made out with.
- Feeling really old at age 24.
- The way hippies smell.
- Trying to sleep through loud parties/street high jinx on High/Indian Street.
- The people upstairs.
People who have moved away? Anything that you don't miss about Bellingham?

At first, I was worried, because I saw hipsters. I don't fit in with hipsters. As I increased my stalking, I realized that a majority of my future classmates only really have 2 interests- skiing and disc. I guess I'll have to brush up on my ultimate. And buy more fleece.

* Did I use effect/affect correctly here? I'm pretty sure I did.
Jodi: In special education, we focus first in finding the right fraction, that is a hard enough CONCEPT, then we later work on the CONCEPT of reducing fractions and then possibly a strategy to actually reduce them. Obviously, I am not a big fan of reducing things otherwise my brests would be A LOT smaller.Lynn's mole is the amount of pure substance containing the same number of chemical units as there are atoms in exactly 12 grams of carbon-12 (i.e., 6.023 X 1023).
Morgan: Exactly what I was distracted by! (that would be 6.023 x 10^23)
Lindsay: Wow AWESOME hair
Lindsay: Seriously I can't get over it, i just keep laughing...
Jodi: I didn't notice it until now and I have looked through my pictures hundreds of times and I didn't notice it. I guess I thought our hair looked like moss on the rock pilar (probably because we hadn't washed our hair with non ocean/chlorine water in a few days).
Me: seriously. all three of us have GREAT hair.
Lindsay: At least you don't look like a troll doll... ;)
Jodi: If you could be a troll doll, what troll doll would you be? I used to have tons of them and I lined them up on my window sill looking out of my bedroom window for everyone to see.
Lindsay: I would be one of the troll dolls with the good luck jewels in the belly button.
Me: i had a troll doll with a recycle symbol on its shirt.
Lindsay: you would.

To quote Kyle Raden, when asked if he was red, white, or blue:
"I'm all of those colors, because I am as American as fuck."
This is how American I am:
First, I had some coffee at Starbucks, a major American corporation. Then Nicole, Rachel, and Carolyn tricked me into going to to Walmart (Don't worry, I didn't buy anything there). Then we went to Red Robin for lunch where we ate overly large portion sizes of food that had been made with partially hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup. Eventually, Jodi and I made it down to Zuanich Park to watch the fireworks.
The fireworks were awesome. Nicole and I made sure to salute whenever the fireworks were red, white and blue. After one particularly spectacular red, white, and blue firework, Jodi announced, "That one was like an American planet!" Yes it was, Jodi, yes it was.

Also, I am trying to watch Wibledon, but I really, really don't understand tennis scoring.
Oooh! Canadian horse jumping is on. I'm gong to watch that instead.

Good to know that American consumers have such small attention spans that when faced with more than one choice of green product, or, you know, having to use logical thinking to answer ethical questions in response to consumption, they simply opt out.
The need to simplify the green message has become obvious, she said, especially after the argument over Nalgene bottles, which are made of a strong, reusable plastic. As recently as last summer, the bottles, marketed to sports enthusiasts, were hailed as an alternative to disposable water bottles, which environmentalists say waste petroleum, both in their manufacture and their transport.
But some environmental groups and scientists raised concerns that polycarbonate plastic, used in the manufacture of some Nalgene bottles, baby bottles and the linings of tin cans, can leach bisphenol-a, an endocrine-disrupting chemical.
Because going back to chemically treated water stored in plastic bottles that you only use once is so much better.
Anyway, if you are not too busy being greened out and selling your bike to buy an SUV and putting your unreusable plastic shopping bags over the heads of endangered baby seals, check out Simple Steps, a good guide for practical environmentally-friendly living.

Listen to this...so I'm reading along in Northwest Business Monthly, which happens to be the first annual green issue. So reading along...Sustainable Connections...SSC...ReUse Works...wait a minute! I work for ReUse Works (ReUse Works is the name of the non-profit which is supported by our business, Appliance Depot)! Headline: Don't waste these factoids...blah blah blah, my boss provided 6 bullet points of facts about recycling, waste, and reuse in the United States. A couple of months ago I did a research project about the change in recycling and waste production rates on a county, state, and nationwide level.
Two of the six 'factoids' were directly a result of my research! I am amazing! And famous!
Someone should throw me a 'extremely easy research you did was published anonymously in a regional business magazine party'.
I am so excited.
Today is also the best day at Appliance Depot because my officemate and my boss are both gone, so when I am done reading Northwest Business Monthly, I can watch youtube videos while I stuff envelopes.

I'm going to make a value judgement here:
- Douchebag party: okay
- Party named after an offensive word for the female anatomy where the men dress up like hunters and women dress up like prey: not okay

Sometimes, after a long day of defending the Constitution, I am too tuckered out to do anything more intense than sinking into the couch for television time. Today was one of those days.
Previously, I had seen most of the series in bits in pieces, but, today, Thursday, May 29, 2008 I watched all 5 hours of 100 best songs of the 80s. I learned a lot.
Fact #1: One of the girls from Bananarama is married to the other guy from Wham.
Fact #2: First, some backstory. In the last year and a half or so, Jodi and I have noticed that Don't Stop Believin' by Journey has become quite the tool anthem. We wondered why on earth this had occurred out of nowhere. Don't get me wrong, Don't Stop Believin is the perfect tool anthem, but we wondered why on earth this particular song had resurfaced out of nowhere to become the song to which all of the guys in popped collars and cargo shorts ran drunkenly onto the dance floor to point meaningly toward the ceiling along with. Turns out, this song was featured on MTV's the Hills, and soon after, became an itunes top ten song. It all makes sense now.
VH1, whether you are educating me about the Sexual Revolution or Bret Michael's diabetes, I learn something new everyday.

Simply Ultimate Magical Merriment Evolving Rapidly, Schnozzled and Naked Summer- Clothing Lost on the Epic Solstice
S.A.N.S. C.L.O.T.H.E.S. S.U.M.M.E.R.
Schnozzled and Naked Summer- Clothing Lost on the Epic Solstice, Simply Ultimate Magical Merriment Evolving Rapidly
make more sense?
Perhaps I should write acronyms for a living.
Highlights of the weekend include:
- Seeing the start of the race, with 400 cross country skiers all beginning at once.
- Making friends with the last 15 or so people waiting for their skiers.
- Not seeing a bear as I ran down.
- Sticking my feet in the glacial creek when I was done with my run.
- Ghetto Pig's leg of the race, which was driving down the mountain with nearly no gas. Due to her excellent coasting skills, we made it to Maple Fuels in Maple Falls. Way to go, Ski to Sea hero!
- Eating a quarter pound of cheese and drinking a quart of lemonade when I finally got off the mountain.
- Winning the most inspirational Ski to Sea team. This was mostly due to our multicolored shirts and ability to be really loud for long periods of time.
- Winning the entire race. Way to come in first overall, Better Lovers!
- Ending Mostly Sober May and starting Strictly Schnozzled Summer with a trip to the beer garden in Jodi's trunk.
Oh Captain, My Captain (You can't see in this picture, but our shirts have literary terms like 'irony' and 'context clues' ironed onto them.)
Ski to Sea (Note the sunrise in the backround. SunRISE!)
