Stolen from floweringjudas because I can't resist a meme:

1. Tell me one thing you love about me.

2. Tell me two things you love about yourself. No self-deprecation allowed!

3. Look through the comments — when you see someone you know, tell them three things you love about them.

4. Do this in your journal.

Ugh. Stomach hurts. Ability to spell has returned. Drinking is overrated, esp. during the workweek.

So the cat that I'm cat sitting has decided that the best way to get my attention is to pounce on my feet and BITE my ankles. I don't think I approve of this development

OMG drank way too much gin tonight. I don't even like gin! Laura, you are a horrible influence. I didn't even do anything worth drinking tonight!

OK, poll time. Does getting drunk via internet with a friend who lives across the country count as getting drunk alone? If so, I thnk I may need an intervantion. if not, this has been a WAY entertaining evening.

Fuck, why did I decide to drink again?

Idaho is cold :(

I just bought a latte in front of my mom (because four days without coffee is just unbearable) and she gave me a trademarked passive-aggressive look and asked when I'd started drinking coffee. Mormons take the weirdest things seriously. I mean, what kind of religion forbids pumpkin spice lattes?

My dad gave me his old laptop, which is of course fantastic. I just feel a little ungrateful at the moment, since the stupid POS takes 8 minutes to wake up from sleep mode. It also asks "are you sure you want to allow this to access the internet every minute and a half. I thought you only had to deal with that shit with Vista.

I think my favorite part of this entire news bit is imagining the poor bastard that gets stuck staking out the "phantom pooper". You know your career in law enforcement is going downhill fast when...

My cousin died of a heroin overdose this weekend.

We all sort of knew that it was inevitable, he'd pretty much destroyed his heart the last time he overdosed. Knowing that it's likely still doesn't really prepare you for hearing the news. One minute you think you're having a normal phone conversation, and the next all the air has been sucked from your lungs.

The last time I saw or spoke to him was years ago, before the drug problem had started. He'd just finished film school and was still full of enthusiasm. It's hard for me to reconcile the image of someone this ridiculously charming, handsome, and talented with the desperate and miserable person he became. It's very surreal. Tragic.

I don't really know what else to say about it.

I just glanced at my bookshelf and noticed some of my old philosophy texts. Somehow this pulled up the memory of my mothers reaction to me studying the subject. She was pretty apprehensive about it, and her disapproval was pretty thinly veiled. I think she was worried that it would lead me away from the religion I'd been taught. "Led away by the philosophies of men" or something like that.

I wonder now if she blames philosophy for my leaving the mormon church. As if philosophy had done anything other than teach me to focus and sharpen my thoughts on issues that had always bothered me. I doubt she'll ever be able to understand that leaving the church was a matter of conscience, and not an act of rebellion or weakness.
