Now after watching an hour or so of television, I must start my day. In that hour, btw, I watched the music video for Taylor Swift's "You Belong With Me." OK, I'm really not a big TS fan, but I like this video.

that means it's time for some good looking man candy.
Been watching Buffy a lot and recently seeing a lot of Bones too. So, there's some major love for David Boreanaz.
OK, so he may be 40...
BUT he's Catholic. Making him an RC hottie. way to go David.

so, as I mentioned earlier, I am in charge of buying my textbooks for fall semester. I groaned and griped, I turned down a trip to Savannah and spent days searching online. However, I only have four classes next semester. Western civilization, the class required of every honors student, is six credit hours so it counts for two. West Civ requires 4-6 books, but I'm buying them from my roommate from last year so DONE. As for psych stat, my suitemate who took the class with the same professor says he doesn't use the book and tells his students not to buy it so DONE. I'm trying to drop spanish, so I didn't buy that book, but eventually I will need a book for that class, whatever it turns out to be.
the point of this post is: the book I did buy (for intro to mass communications) was
$87 used from my school bookstore
$75 used on amazon.com
$56 to rent on chegg.com
$41 NEW from campusbooks.com with free shipping, 3-4 days
I know, I'm amazing. use this website!

On a less embarrassing note, I've also rediscovered my love for Stephen Colbert. And his amazing Ben and Jerry's ice cream flavor: AMERICONE DREAM. My mom says that my affection for this food is unnatural and weird. It is not. Vanilla ice cream with chocolate covered waffle cone pieces and a caramel swirl. How could you not love it? Hm, maybe since I didn't buy donuts yesterday (friday is donut day! mostly to have something to eat with my amazing Dunkin Donuts iced coffee. wow, I'm just dropping names all over the place. I should get payed for product placement) I should buy some more Americone Dream instead. I'll actually be saving money. Oh, but maybe I should also save that for those dumb textbooks. Life is full of hard choices.
In other news, trivia was very disappointing last night. 6th out of 10. Who knows what the 4 H's in the 4H club stands for????

- to warm up my fingers I thought I'd share some Muse. there you go.
I love rediscovering old favorites. There's the thrill of reminiscence and also of new joy. This could come from introducing a roommate to Alias (now it's a bit out of hand- I even got her family addicted) or setting your music player to shuffle or even cleaning out your closet and finding your Ricky Martin CD (which, of course, leads almost immediately to shaking your bon bon). I rewatch the same movies so many times I'm amazed I ever watch new ones. But I do. And I watch a lot. So much so that I took a test on an e-mail or similar that had a list of several movies and made you check off the ones you've seen. I'd seen a fair percentage, probably 100 of the 150 or similar. At the end, it told me that my number meant I had no life. Thank you again, internet, but I think I know that.
Now I'm rediscovering Muse after a month or two break, and I feel like Twilight might be next. Please stop me now.
This past week, at the beach...
true, but I also read some James Bond novels ala Ian Fleming! yay!I forgot how enjoyable those books are. Unlike the movies, the plot is clearly spelled out and the point of view is third person omniscient, so the reader gets a view into the mind of 007. A few things about Bond you may not know:
in the early books, he wants to marry just about every Bond girl, until one of them inevitably dies, leaving him scarred.
- he has a scar on his face. hot.
- he drinks like a fish and smokes like a chimney
- in Thunderball, he goes to rehab
- he really doesn't enjoy killing or think it's cool, especially in cold blood (which he refuses to do).
that's about all. In the books, just as in the movies, he's a badass secret agent with a license to kill and a hot bod. He also is an impeccable dresser and usually wears a dark blue suit and NOT a tux. You can't live in such an outfit. Just ask Daniel Craig. That Bond knows how to wear a polo. or a cardigan. or a speedo...

- more cursing
- less apology for drunkeness??
or "he disses the Smithsonian!"
I can't even rate it. You read it and tell me how you feel.
