Tuesday

the horror

Or, ways I'm like I was in high school

  • general feelings of inadequacy
  • unnatural enjoyment of new school supplies
  • bad eyesight
  • get hives at the mention of economics
  • attracted to the geeky skinny guys (see "potential second husbands")
  • tendency to dislike bouncy perky cheerleader-types
  • hate high heels
  • want the popular people to like me (or at least notice me)
  • agonizing over hair & makeup
  • relish the angst of The Smiths, The Cure, Squeeze, The Smithereens, omd, Depeche Mode, and Echo & The Bunnymen
  • still have no respect for my American History teacher
  • height
  • 'pleasure to have in class' but 'visits too much with neighbors'
  • love the smell of mimeograph in the morning...

nothing quite makes me as happy as the smell of a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils.
