As You Wish

I have a genie lamp and everything, but my genie has yet to appear. All I can do is dream of three wishes I would bestow upon the mythical creature. So whether they be selfish, charitable, medical, physical, emotional, mental, social, anything at all, what would your three wishes be?

Back In The Day

Mick Jagger cracks me up. Here's a clip from 1989 -- the year my parents married. Needless to say, dear Mick hadn't yet reached the doddering level seen at Superbowl XL.

Start Me Up


Next cyberspace question: Now that I know how to insert a link (thanks go out to Jad once more), how would I go about inserting a Youtube video?

Thank you in advance, blog veterans,
for entertaining these bouts of oblivion.

Take Me Back

I was wrapped tightly in a ball, my head down, arms around my knees. This fetal position had become very familiar to me. I floated up and up and up, blindly and without a sense of direction. Suddenly I stopped and felt a presence. He watched me and waited. I lifted my chin and glared sorrowfully.

"Take me back," I pleaded.

He gathered me in his palm and watched knowingly, patiently perhaps. Slowly he pushed me back down to Earth with his index finger. The sheer force unfurled my body's tight form.

I landed feet first and looked to the sky for remnants of this encounter. There were none.

A cancerous spirit began to leave its body. It passed through the Holy Spirit and continued to rise, newly healed. Suddenly the spirit was brought back into its body by an unseen power, powerfully enough for onlookers to credit... gravity? or a black hole?

The spirit was rejuvenated, left to live the rest of its healthy life.

This mother's body's doctors were dumbfounded. To no avail, they attempted to attribute the miracle to scientific probability.

I take my Spanish final tomorrow. I don't really care how I do. I want to get the heck out of there.

No finals Friday!

I am FREE FREE FREE. I can now spend my time reading, writing, painting, room refurbishing, sleeping, rehearsing...all the best of summer.

(The main difference between school and summer is that I can perform all of the above without feeling guilty about choosing such activities over school-related ones. Awesome.)

Most Recent Addiction

Update, 5/25: I made it to level four! First time ever! I rank 71 with 16,000 and something points!

I spend way too much time in front of this screen...


Flenker's and H's mixes for the Great Blogger CD Mix Exchange arrived Saturday. Both are fantastic (or will be, since I haven't yet listened to them in depth.)

Once I have received all six, I will post Lucy's GBCDME Awards 2007.


Disclaimer: I have no "insert link" option on my computer, I'm telling you. I wish I could make posts such as these more interactive, but I'm afraid you'll just have to visit my Link List.
