So Stoddard and I wanted to make cookies tonight, and I was so so so determined not to
make pods (which is what Dana and I call my frequently failed attempt at making good, chewy, Toll House cookies - they always end up puffy and cakey, and honestly don't taste very good, and she's always making fun of me for it). So we got this recipe on this site that had recipes for both "chewy" and "puffy" cookies, so obviously, I chose the chewy one. Not only that, but I used about half of the flour necessary since it always seems that there is too much flour, and I thought that maybe that was causing the pods. Then, not only that, but we chilled them for about a half hour in the freezer, and when we took it out, it looked and tasted like store bought cookie dough - so fucking good! So we put a bunch of cookie droplets on the pan and put it in, anxiously awaiting their arrival, especially since I was hoping I could finally call Dana tomorrow and say, I DID IT! I know how to make non-pod cookies! Well, in a sense, it worked: they were certainly not pods. But for some reason, I think because there wasn't enough flour to make it rise or something, I don't know, but after
about 5 minutes in the oven (when they were supposed to cook for 14), they looked like weird wrinkly prune cookies that were over-cooked on the edges and pure goo in the middle. So we cooked them for a little more, hoping they would get betting, but they just turned into completely wrinkly overly brown cookies. So, since they looked a little over-cooked, they looked like the type of cookies to become crisp when cooled, so I told Stoddard and Austin that we should eat them right out of the oven. So we took them out, let them sit for a minute or two, then shoveled them on to a plate, basically one on top of the other. Now, this (besides messing with the recipe in the first place) was one of the biggest mistakes of this process. Since they were fresh, they pretty much melded together into one big cookie pile of shit. We ended up basically pulling chunks of goo and crunch of the pile for a little bit, and to be honest, they weren't that bad, but after awhile, they got to us, and we just couldn't eat any more. So that, my friends, is the story of the non-pod cookies. Here are some pictures to supplement the story.

If I were religious or a bit more spiritual, I totally would have believed that I had an experience with rreincarnation today.

So I was runnig the loop here in Westport, and as I turned onto Atlantic Avenue, something kind of weird happened. I was running by a bush when a bird (sort of looked like a crow) flew above my head (about fifteen feet up) and started following me, continuously squawking at me and flapping it's wings hard. Almost as if it was trying to tell me something. It was doing this for about a minute or two when it finally flew away. Almost immediately after it flew away, I had a strong whiff of Pabby's perfume, for about wenty to thirty seconds. It was very strange!

1. I passed a building that on the front had in big letters, something like, "John's Flooring Company" and on the roof of this building (it was built kind of like a house), there was someone working on the shingles.

2. I was wearing the "Eat. Sleep. Fuck." shirt that Stoddard made me but I totally forgot. So, I went into a gas station and was looking around for food when suddenly I heard behind me: someone clapping and saying things like, "Yeah man!" and "Bravo!" At first I thought he was talking to someone else, but I turned around and looked at him and he was the worker guy standing behind the counter and he said, "I love your shirt." I laughed at said I was glad he liked it. Then, a few minutes later, I went up to the counter to buy something, and he said, "So, do you live by that motto?" and so I told him it was kind of a joke that my brother made for me, thinking that it'd be so funny if someone went into work with it. So then he said, "Well, even though I usually don't think of myself as a man of the ladies, I have been living by that motto lately." This was especially funny because this guy was kind of gross and had some messed up teeth. So, as I walked out, I wished him luck, and encouraged him to keep it up. Hahaha.

I need a change. I've been so bad to myself for so long. I've eaten' like shit forever, and am constantly gaining weight, and even broke the 200 lb. mark this week. Yes, it was probably one of those fluctuations, and now I'm down to 195 or something again, but still, it's bad, and it's just got to stop. So. Like I did last year, I am going to promise myself I will be better. I will continue working out (after this week of work-out break), every MWF, and Sundays too, for the most part, with Dana, as I have been recently. But I'm not going to make ANY damn excuses any more. I'm going to continue it, and stay in schedule. And I am GOING TO EAT BETTER again. I don't care if it means eating salads from the Hoozh more often. I had one today and it was actually pretty good. So, fuck it. I don't care how tempting desserts are, but I've got to STOP getting them for the most part. I've got to stop getting those stuffed pretzels, and pizza, and cake, and cookies, and chips, and really take care of myself again. 'Cause I look bad and feel bad, and it just sucks. So, I denote this day as the official "get-yourself-together-and-start-taking-care-of-yourself-again-because-you-are-getting-fatter-by-the-minute-and-it-is-unhealthy-and-it-sucks-day."

This is not a resolution. Otherwise, I would have written this a little less than a month ago. This is more than a resolution. A resolution is something I WANT to do and HOPE to do and set a GOAL to do. This is also not a goal. This is something I simply WILL do.

So that's that! Good, I feel better already. Yes.

How did I get so lucky? Seriously, Dana is exactly what I want in a girl. Everything about her is just perfect, and I couldn't ask for anything better, and every single thing about her is just . . . exactly what I want. I wouldn't change a thing if I could. And I'm so proud of her all the time, and I believe in her so much, more than anything, and she's so interesting, I could just talk to her all day long. And she's also . . . beautiful, and I could just stare at her for hours. God. She's so incredible.

You scored as atheism. You are... an atheist, though you probably already knew this. Also, you probably have several people praying daily for your soul.

Instead of simply being "nonreligious," atheists strongly believe in the lack of existence of a higher being, or God.

You are a Slutcom 0, also known as the frigid level of slutcom. Slutcom 0 is someone who hasn't been with too many people, if they've been with people at all. Hook-ups are practically non-existant - there may be one or two in the past, but nothing consistent or spectacular. You're a card carrying member of the prude patrol, or at least close.

Goddam this doesn't happen very often. I went bed at around 12:30 last night, woke up at 7:30. That's 7 fuckin' hours! I never get that much! And this was after a night of 3 hours . . . yeah. So damn, I went to my 8:00 theory class feeling more awake than I have in a long time for that class (which I often skip). Then after that I came back and messed around with my Sonar program mixer thing and stuff and it was kind of not working at least with this one thing. So then I went to T132 drill, which I've skipped a number of times as well, and finally got my books back that I had left in the class and the AI kept forgetting to bring back. Then I went to Jazz History, David Baker wasn't there, but it was cool, I HAVE to get this recording of Clark Terry called Mumbles - SO awesome, just really cool scattish type shit. Oh fuck! I just realized that I have it already on my iTunes!!!!!!!!! Apparently it was on Oscar Peterson's Finest Hour! YES. I love it!!! God that my day even better! And now to continue with my day story. Okay, after Jazz History I messed around with the Sonar thing again and I think I figured the little problem out. I hope. So yay about that! And then I checked my email and found out that Creative Writing drill was canceled, fuck yeah! And then so yeah I went on a jog and it was quite productive and beneficial to my health. Then I got back and lifted Brandon's weights for awhile and then did some push-ups and sit-ups. And then instead of showering right away, I practiced for about an hour and a half, memorizing Dexterity and brushing up on some other tunes. And then I took a shower and shaved. And AGH, all I have left is laundry. And I feel so fuckin' productive and yeah, good. YES! And on top of ALL of that, it's such a FUCKING nice day.

I'm in a really fucked up mood right now. I don't really know why. I'm just . . . egh. I had a lot of fun at Dro's house in Ohio this weekend. It was sweet, we jammed some, and we taught Emma how to play a simple version of the bassline of Twist and Shout and we also showed her the bassline to the long weird-beat section of that Mars Volta song, "Cygnus... Vismund Cygnus" that is really awesome. And we all ate at LaRosa's, this pretty sweet pizza place, really good. And then we ate at this awesome ice cream place, Graeter's. And this was with Dro, Katia, Emma and me, and then also with Jennylynn, Cara, Molly and Amanda. And I felt really cool at points at the ice cream place, because I was being pretty fuckin' hyper and I was being pretty crazy and Jennylynn was laughing really hard at stuff I was saying/doing, and Cara was saying that she liked me a lot and that we should hang out more, and Molly, to whom I've never really talked, was laughing and we were all having fun. It was a lot of fun. And then after that, the four extra girls left whom we had met up with to eat, and it was just Dro, Katia, Emma and I again. We went back and talked and stuff. And eventually we ended up watching about two hours of TV. Some of it was this "Sunday Night Sex Show with Sue" or whatever that I have actually seen a few times before that is really awesome, it's so fuckin' hilarious, this old lady talking about dildos and all. And then we watched some old Loony Tunes and that was grand, and some Tom and Jerry. All really fun. And Emma and I were cuddling a lot during the TV sessions and it was making me happy. And then eventually we were all falling asleep (well, I wasn't, haha), but yeah, so Dro went up to his room and Emma, Kat and I decided to sleep downstairs. Kat ended up sleeping on the couch, and Emma and I made a little bed on the floor next to the couch and turned off the lights and Emma and I snuggled a lot and it was great. And then for about an hour after that, the three of us just had one of those classic night time chats that are just so great. We talked about farts a looot, for at least a half an hour. And then we all kind of talked about how our friendships started. And it was so great and really a lot of fun.

But.

I think this is where the root of my weird mood might be. I kind of figured this out while talking to Dana tonight about it all (who by the way was really nice and listened to me kind of whine about nothing and be stupid). But yeah. Those talks and chats and times are always so nice. People aren't sarcastic constantly; they're nice and complimentative; they're free and open and laughy; they listen, and they're not afraid to talk about anything; they're so TRUE. Now, why the FUCK is it that every time, EVERY TIME after something like that, the next morning, IT'S BACK TO BEING REGULAR AGAIN. The next morning, people are awkward again; they make it seem like the night before didn't happen; they make it seem like what they said then really has no relevance in the real world. Oh god, it really . . . gets to me. I really want things to be like that more often. I mean, god, I'm not blaming this all on them or anything, and I love them so much, always. It's not like I'm mad at them. I'm just mad at the situation that goddamitall, nothing ever stays like that! It always goes back! AGH! And so I've just been in a kind of shitty mood all day. And on top of that, I lost my room key so will probably have to pay $50 for another, and today I've just been taking sarcasm straight to the heart, like I do when I'm in a bad mood. Well, that sounded a little extreme, but I just mean, sometimes I can't take a lot of sarcasm, and it's another thing that's been getting to me. People are always giving me shit, whether it be for the jokes I give (and yes I know they're bad, but god), or the way I act, or for just . . . I don't know, anything. And it's totally obvious they're kidding, at least most of the time, I just can't handle too much of it sometimes. Dana says it's 'cause I'm too nice and that that's why it's easy to give me shit 'cause I don't get angry back usually, and that's sweet of her. But I don't know. It just gets to me. Yeah. So that's my day. But I did have a lot of fun in Ohio, I really did, and it would be cool to go back sometime. I just kind of want this day to change or end. I don't know.

Yeah.

Ah, the combo concert went soooo well tonight. We played "One of a Kind", "Stodrad's Blues" and my arrangement of "Wave". It went better than ever, at least for the most part. It was really good and Stoddard came up and hugged me after it 'cause I wrote him that song and told the crowd that I dedicated it to him and the crowd went "AAAWWW" when he came up. And Dana and her roommate Chrissy came and I was so happy. I sat next to them afterwards and they complimented me so much, and I thanked them very much. I was very grateful to have close friends there. Hee. Great night.

Oh and Brad Whiteley's combo played "Exit Music (for a Film)" in Brad Mehldau style and it was AMAZING. God I LOVE that song!!!

It's amazing. I was just at a counter-protest thing. Apparently, every Thursday, a bunch of people (about 5-10) come out to this one corner near Ballentine Hall and spout their views. Today I went and they had signs like "Buddah (sic) is not God, Allah is not God, Jesus Christ is alive and is GOD, all others are going to hell" or something like that and stuff like, "Amerika is full of blood, babies, and sodomite faggots" or something. I don't know. Lots of fucked up shit. I heard Quinto and Julia were going to the counter-protest so I went and met up with them a little bit later. I stayed there for a total of almost two hours. I mainly just held a sign saying "Hate is not a Bloomington value". But for about an hour at the end, some of the people in the counter-protest were arguing with this one guy (who was holding the 'Jesus Chris is alive . . .' sign). It was great though, because they weren't yelling, for the most part, and were actually having a good debate, except for that the guy holding the sign pretty much didn't listen to what the people had to say even though he said he was doing so and basically every comeback for every argument started with, "Well, the Bible says . . ." yeah. Yeah, and he kept saying he was listening to their points and being open-minded and stuff. But god. The thing about that is, you can't be open minded if you base every argument off the book in YOUR religion! It's totally contradictory! Another thing, they were all men there. No women were calling anyone faggots or condemning anyone to hell. Figures. Ah. I'm so proud of Quinto and Jules though, they really got in his face near the end and really argued with him well and totally proved him wrong a million times. Like Quinto said how in the Bible it's an abomination to touch pig-skin (leather) and the very Bible the guy was preaching out of was made out of leather! And he talked about how the Bible says slavery is okay pretty much in the same verse that it says sodomy is wrong. And then Jules, ah, she's so open-minded. She kept saying how she totally respected their right to be out here and to say these things but that they're never going to get us to understand or "come to Christ" or whatever if they spouted hate towards everyone. I really really respect that. So congrats to Quinto and Jules. Good for you guys. I wish I could do things like that. I just hate conflict and so it's fuckin' insanely hard for me to argue things like that. I'm envious of they're abilities to do so. So, once again. Much respect and love to them.

Okay, I had my annoyed entry tonight, then my okay entry tonight, and now I'm sooo much happier and I feel much much better, even though it's 3:50 and I have an 8:00 class. Goddam. I was doing my theory homework when Dana and Emma came in my room and started goofing around. I was already really happy that Emma came 'cause I was just thinkin' today about how she doesn't really come into my room very often. But I was so happy they both showed up because I really needed a relief and I was still feeling a bit annoyed and stuff, and oh yeah. Forgot to say, before Emma came in, Dana was asking me if I was alright and giving me a message and stuff, really nice of her, *hugs her*. And so yeah. I was really happy they came in. They eventually sat on the same chair and just started doing random shit, and I got the camera and just took tooons of random pictures of them doing weird stuff, and then lots of weird movies of them too, being Jewish, playing with goldfish, being just plain weird. It was so so so funny. Eventually, Emma left, and Dana stayed. And I took a shower, which I really needed, 'cause I felt like I smelled like a rotting cow. So I went back to my room. And then AJ came in. Then AJ and Dana started doing weird stuff while I took pictures of them. Well, they were actually trying to get some serious good pictures but also, they were foolin' around. They were (keep in mind, AJ is gay) kissing, he was holding her breast, they were pretending to fuck, just lots of shit like that, all while I took pictures, and I got SOOO many and they're sooo funny!!! I'm so excited to put them all on my computer.

And then, goddam, always the best part. After that, we said g'night to AJ and Dana and I went to Emma's room and I asked if we could cuddle for about 5 minutes before I had to go to bed, 'cause they were on her bed and it looked inviting, and I really felt like cuddling. So yeah, I crawled in between them, and we just had lots more CRAZY fuckin' hilarious conversations. Then, Emma wrapped herself in her sheet and walked around and she TOTALLY looked like a middle eastern person. Then I put it on and looked like some deranged baby. Then Dana put it on and looked like "Patient #27" or some crazy retarded person. Then I summed up what we all looked like and said, "Together we could rule the world," and they both died and I felt really cool (thanks Megs! hehe). And yeah, we got back in bed after awhile and talked a bit more and had some great more conversation. And yeah. It just made me feel SO good again. Seriously, times like that fill my life with joy. To the utmost extent. Ah. Felt SO good. We ended up talking/cuddling for about 30 minutes instead of 5, but still, it was great great great, I don't care how late it was. I LOVE THEM so much, they're such great people, hilarious, and they can make me feel sooo good.

Signing off and feeling so fuckin' much better,

The Deranged Baby

I had about a 3 hour practice session and I made kind of a check list to get done while practicing and it really helped getting stuff done. I think I might be able to practice better from now on. Well, I don't know, I'll probably slack off some more like always, but still I'm glad that it helped tonight. I did:

1. Hanon

2. Patterns/licks

3. Chords

4. Review tune/s

5. New tune/s

6. Overall wrap-up of material

At least for the most part. And it was cool, so yeah, I brought the fan down there again 'cause it's always fuckin' hot as fuck in the practice room and it helps so much to be cooler. So yeah, I feel good about that, and am feelin' a bit better even though my computer's fucked in some ways.

I'm in kind of a pissy mood. Not to other people much, but just when I'm alone. Agh. My fucking AIM isn't working, and now I realized my sound card thing isn't being recognized (it's done this before but I can't remember how it got fixed), so iTunes won't play, and then I was just trying to make a CD of pictures to give to Emma, Dana and Katia and all them but the fucking CD won't write. AGH. It's really fuckin' annoying me. I don't feel this way this often, but it sucks, 'cause agh there are just lots of little things that are annoying me. I'm gonna go have a good practice session though. I really need that. And hopefully it will make me feel better. I think I might make a checklist of things to do while practicing too, to make sure I'm productive. So yeah. Fuckin' computer. Piss on you mister DOODOOHEAD.

EDIT: And now my fucking PRINTER says it's offline!!! AGH!

I just found out that while Brandon's shitting, he leaves the bathroom door open a little bit so he can see through the crack of the door and watch TV at the same time.

That's pretty awesome, 'cept I don't have nearly enough LJ friends to make it really cool. But still, it's sweet.

Goddam, I was up till 7:40 last night. Haha what the hell is wrong with me. I set my alarm this time though so I got up at 3, at least, instead of 5:30. So yeah. I'm kind of pathetic. Haha.

Yeah, so I woke up at 5:30 tonight after that late night last night. Latest I've ever awoken in my life! But it was so damn awesome, I went downstairs to put my laundry in, and going up from the basement, the elevator stopped on floor 1, and I was mad 'cause I just wanted it to go straight up to 3, but it opened and Kevin walked in, we looked at each other but didn't really acknowledge each other. He kind of looked tired too. So we kind of just sat there, but immediately, the very second when the elevator doors closed, we both looked at each other and yelled "KEVIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and he yeled "WHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" as loudly as we possibly could, holding each other's names for a good ten seconds. Oh my god, it was sooo funny! 'Cause we both knew EXACTLY what we were going to do! 'Cause whenever we see each other we have to yell each other's names. HAHA. And then I soon found out that he also got up at the same time as me! And then he told me Chris got up then too, as well as Flowers! Hahaha, so I didn't feel as bad anymore for waking up that late, 'cause they were all up as late as I was last night and therefore woke up as late as I did. Good, hahaha.

ravenpuff
You're a Ravenpuff!: You are a very analytical and
ingenius person, someone that likes to invent
new things. The way you look at life is with
wonder, and sometimes you're even a little
naive. But people love you for that trait and
they feel the need to protect you from the
harsh facts of life so that you can retain your
innocence. You are very capable person and when
there is trouble people turn to you because
you're able to stay calm and collected. You
like balance in your life and you try not to
make many waves. Even still, if there is
something that you believe strongly in, you
will commit yourself totally to that cause.
Your weakness is that sometimes you can be
indecisive and perfectionist, especially about
little details and you drive people crazy
sometimes with these traits. With the
innocence of a Hufflepuff and the calm of a
Ravenclaw you will be loved in life!
