update, oh update, hello!

Saw Jake Gyllenhaal at breakfast this morning.  And yes, he is that pretty in real life, even while totally scruffy and wearing a red flannel shirt with the collar turned up.

After that everything seems anti climatic doesn't it?  kidding.

Actually, after all the fear of my post last week, I've been doing better physically and mentally - even though i still have a tiny bit of a cough, it's really like a handful of times a day instead of a couple of times an hour, and while i've still been a little up and down, I haven't needed to remind myself of the good things each day because they were occurring to me, mostly.  Tuesday I managed to finish one of my two papers and extend it to the point that it'll count for two assignments, and got the reading for Wednesday's class done.  Wednesday was an incredibly long day - woke up at 8 and started writing / studying, did class and then helped out with a movie screening for my professor.  The best thing was that she'd ordered Lebanese finger foods for the reception, and I got to take home the super duper fabulous hummus and tabbouleh and other things I don't know the name of but that were nummmmmmmy.

Thursday I was so cracked out because of the many-houred Wednesday that I ended up half-heartedly working on my linguistics mid term while main lining Scrubs. 

Oh Netflix instant view, I love and hate you.  Since December, since I don't have an actual TV, I've been blowing through seasons of things --  I've watched all but the last three episodes of Stargate Atlantis, every single episode of Battlestar Gallactica, both seasons of Spartacus (which, seriously, people, if you are NOT watching you should because it is utter, utter, utter fantastic id-crack).  Also, every ep of Eureka (which i love for it's dumb geekyness, Firefly, Buffy Season 3 (hey, the classics are classics), Lie to Me, Terminator: the SCC, and 30 Rock.  It's really nice not to have to wait for the next episode to come out each week, and that little "next episode" button is just ... evil, pure evil.

It has also been lovely to not watch oceans of reality TV.

Yesterday was beautiful, if a little crazy, because I actually motivated to go down to campus after working in the morning on the mid-term, found eight books that will help with my final paper for one class (research, it's fun, sometimes!), saw some friends who meet for a reading group on Friday afternoons (Spinoza! he was a rebel!) and managed to resist the lure of offered cigarettes, and then came home and made the best sandwich ever for dinner after actually taking the dog for a longer walk.  Now, granted, I was up until 3 in the morning finishing said mid-term and turning it in, but whatever, it's DONE.

ok, start with a cumin-crusted pork loin, cut into medalians
two pieces of uncured bacon
a big handful of spinach
half a tomato thinly sliced
crumbled goat cheese
fresh oregeno
put it all between two slices of sourdough bread
grill it in a pan on the stove

OH MY GODS SERIOUSLY.  here, here is a picture to show you what i mean...

this is sorta my idea of brain food :D

Today was breakfast with one of my favorite girls, and it was good beyond the start sighting - and I actually got to show her my house and she approved and we got to catch up in person for the first time in months.  Tonight I'm heading over to hang out with friends too.  It's a good weekend.
