Ya Heard?

The day I was on the same bus as an escort.

Last week was hectic. So hectic that I did not have time to even write about what happened when I went home for the weekend. So I get out of work and go back home to get a ride from my roommate. She finally gets back and takes me to Jack in the Box where the only thing I can eat off the entire menu is basically a grilled cheese sandwich because it’s Friday and Catholics can’t eat meat during Lent. Why I still go along with this I do not know. Especially since I don’t know what I believe in anymore.

I finally get to the bus station and there’s still like half an hour before the next bus leaves so I have plenty of time to buy my ticket. Right? Wrong! There’s like 5 asian tourist in line a few people in front of me who do not speak a word of English. They could barely communicate with the people at the counter. I heard the last call for the bus I wanted to take over the intercom. I was so pissed. Anyway in the end I was able to catch the bus after quickly showing the security guard I was not carrying any weapons or drugs in my bag. So I sit in the closest seat I find next to someone I think might not give me the evil eye for sitting next to them.

I situate myself and see some girl on her laptop on the other side of the bus. My first impression: That’s stupid. Why would you take out your laptop on the Greyhound where half of the passangers look like they were just released from prison and could attack you in the many dark alleys of Los Angeles when you get off the bus? Yeah I didn’t think she was too smart. Suddenly,  see her desktop wallpaper. It’s some girl in lingerie. That girl happened to be her. Yeah I was like oh my goodness wooooowwwwwwwww!!!!!!! Then I see her reading this word document with all these other girls in lingerie. It looked like some sort of manual. Then, she goes on the website called Sugar Daddy or something along those lines and starts replying to messages. So I start thinking … hmmmm I don’t want to start jumping to conclusions but this girl might be an escort. First thing that comes to mind: OMG SECRET DIARY OF A CALL GIRL! THIS GIRL IS LIKE A REAL LIFE BELLE! If that wasn’t enough she pulls out 5 different cellphones throughout the 3 hour trip and at one point makes a really suspicious phone call. I tried not to listen and turned up my iPod as loud as my little ears could handle. It was so surreal! I texted my roommate later and she was like how are you so sure? I told her everything I saw and she agreed that I wasn’t really jumping to conclusions.


I’m getting old really fast

I already have the sleeping pattern of an old woman. I go to bed early and get up early, when I don’t have any school work due that is.

Well today I felt my life flashing before me at my inability to open the door on a public bus. I seriously could not open it. I pushed it with all the strength I had left over from not sleeping for the last 4 days and it never opened. I had to walk all the way up to the front to get out. I was so embarrassed. If I can’t open a door at 19 how am I going to do it in 20 years? I probably wouldn’t be able to use computers if I were born a decade earlier.

Now I have to focus on a paper I have not written, on a book I haven’t read which is due at 5PM. No one has done me the favor of running me over, which would be a legitimate excuse for not turning in all they work that was due this week. After I’m done I have to share a story about my experience on the Greyhound. It was so surreal!

Oh my goodness. My supervisor just asked me if I was having hot flashes because I turned on the fan as soon as I got to work and set it facing me. This doesn’t help me in my “I’m getting old fast” situation.

Life should be like Maccabees songs

That should be a rule in life. The Maccabees are so poetic. I love their songs! At one time I couldn’t stop listening to their album for about 3 months. No lie. Anyway, a comment made by someone today that was not very nice made me think of “No Kind Words” by this amazing band.

Penny Magnet

My father is a penny magnet. Everytime I’m with him he seems to discover a treasure trove of pennies. Either he attracts them or he just happens to be so observant he can spot them very, very easily. I wish instead of pennies it was one hundred dollar bills. We’d be rich by now.

It’s probably all in my head

The office I work at has a bank on one side and a counseling center on the other side. Well the other day I feel someone looking at me. You know when you can just feel someone’s eyes on you? So I turn around and see they guy that works at the counseling center is standing in the bank looking at me through a little window. Creeped me out! Seriously who does that?Every time he passes by I feel him looking at me now and try to hide. Like alot of things I tell myself it’s all in my head, but I’m not that paranoid. At least I don’t think I am.

Earlier this week I had to go run an errand for work so I decided to cut through the center to avoid going all the way around to the main entrance to get around. Bad idea. I see that same guy (I didn’t know he worked there). AWKWARD.

Just now he took TWO shortcuts through my job and I turned around to make sure he wasn’t staring at me from the bank and low and behold he was. I think I blushed too. I’m scared of him. I really really am.

Food advertising really works when people are hungry

Children at Dairy Queen (1957), originally uploaded by dogwelder.

Last night one of my roommates and I were being lazy, unproductive college students and sitting in our living room watching America’s Next Top Model, the beginning of 90210, the end of Rush Hour 2, and all of Make Me a Super Model. Some of our observations included: alot of the girls on this season of ANTM look like the ones in other seasons and Jackie Chan doesn’t seem to know what is going on during the bloopers.
Well, somewhere in between all these shows we realized we were getting hungry. Then a Dairy Queen commercial came on talking about the new specials they were offering. It was at that moment that we were both persuaded to go to Dairy Queen. Unfortunately, out of the four roommates, we’re the two that don’t have cars. Grreeaatt. So we calmed our hunger by eating Tostitos, but after seeing the delicious things available at Dairy Queen we really really wanted to go.
My immediate roommate got home and I told her that if she took us to Dairy Queen, I would buy her something. Then we embarked on a quest to find the nearest Dairy Queen to us. Lazy college students that we are, we did not get up to go to our computers to look one up. I did it on my blackberry and my roommate did it on her iPhone. After 15 minutes of trying she finally found all the Dairy Queens within a 50 mile radius. Yes we were willing to go that far. We proceeded to call all their numbers only to find that they closed (mostly at 9 and it was already 11). We quenched our hunger for the deliciousness that escaped us by 2 hours with cookies and oranges.
I think we might go today … at least I hope so.
