ahhh... i was just told i'm decorating a birdhouse-probably solo- to be auctioned off in the name of the wexner center, proceeds go to a domestic violence shelter- its due tuesday. an email was sent out a few weeks ago if anyone wanted to chip in and apparently i was the only idiot who volunteered/the only one who cares about women's rights. it will probably fetch 2 dollars.

i didn't wake up early and make juice as promised. i did, however, move the alarm clock away from the bed. as soon as it went off i got up, pushed snoozed, and promptly went back to bed.

also, went to the allergist yesterday for my "severe allergy to cat" and they gave me a prescription for pills, nasal spray and a nettie pot. i love the nettie pot ! this morning i can breathe and am not sneezing. and it was kind of fun to use.

back to work!

it is really quiet around the office- everyone is out of town for vacation or fam emergencies. i've opened up all the blinds in our room and it is still kind of dark because it is so cloudy today.

some weird things i do to make the day better

1)never turn on the fluorescent overhead lights. they make me feel like i'm in walmart and crazy by the end of the day. i'v read somewhere that this type of lighting is unhealthy and actually depletes your vitamin d levels.
a)turn on one tungsten light so i feel like i'm in a little cave.

2)listen to nostalgic, pre-1950's french pop, or old folk on the radio.

3)eat lunch really late in the afternoon (2:00-2:30pm) this way after I eat i have only a little bit of time left at work. delayed gratification.

4)cover my desk with plants (or two). this makes me happy but when they look dead from my negligence- it really freaks me out and i over react. a few months ago this happened and i put my plant in the bathroom to recoup and someone accidentally stole it from my department.

in other news,

jeff and i bought a juicer a while ago too (juiceman jr) it is awesome but i haven't really made anything past the first day. when debating on whether or not to purchase the thing- i made this huge, melodramatic argument that it would change our lives forever and we would be up at 5:30am everyday running before making the world's healthiest breakfast (fresh juice included, obviously).

i can't wake up before 7:45am. i can't do it. i think tonight i will move the alarm clock across the room. we'll see how this works... then maybe tomorrow will be the first day of the rest of my life. i'm challenging myself to make something tomorrow before work..

i'm taking individualized instruction: german this quarter and just realized that i had purchased the wrong workbook. there are like ten fucking components to the course (online manual, bookbook, and "workbook" as well as a million "resources" on the osu germanic language webpage). i'm out 60 dollars and have to eat another 50 to buy the other damn workbook. fuck this.

i made suntea yesterday and when i came outside the sun had moved considerably- so i guess what i really made was weak tea (shadowtea). it isn't that bad and kind of just tastes like those 10 calorie vitamin water drinks.

random things:

the offices are closed for veteran's day and so far i have stuck to my promise to watch gilmore girls on the couch and finish reading lunar park by bret easton ellis (which wasn't as good as i hoped it would be).

last night i saw jerusalem and the starbaskets and they didn't sound like any recordings i've ever heard but i guess thats what happens when your a two piece band and can screw around with a bunch of effects and delays. they were still better than most bands i've seen lately.

i'm really excited for a lecture coming up with dean wareham and mark richardson although it isn't specified as to what they are going to be talking about.

i want to clean my room and weather proof all the windows but i'm not sure if that will actually happen.

i just walked past john waters at work!

he has been here all day getting ready for a lecture tomorrow and my boss said she heard him on the phone talking about his cats.

i'm trying to figure out health benefit stuff and spent the majority of the morning mulling over life insurance and am unsure of who i should leave as my beneficiary. the cats?

saw phil solomon talk and screening last night and it was good. he is making films using scenes from the grand theft auto video game and twisting the content and plays them next to typically found sound bits. he was very endearing and the films were very meditative.

a school in the area pulled their students out of a theater during the performance of some shakespeare play because of "butt wiggling" and "fake smoking".

i'm not sure if this works with most people

but tell me no or say that something is going to be hard for me and i'll be damned if it doesn't make me work all the harder.

trails never end, of course. unhappiness and misfortune are bound to occur as long as people live, but there is a feeling now, that was not here before, and is not just on the surface of things, but penetrates all the way through: we've won it. it's going to get better now. you can sort of tell these things.

tonight is the official reopening of bourbon street and mudhoney is playing. honestly, i'm not real into mudhoney. but if this were like, twelve years ago (and i didn't work at bourbon st), i'd been making a mad chore dash so my mother would give me 20$ to go see them and then cry when no one would give me a ride.

also, bourbon street is mentioned in the new spin magazine, something to do with times new viking, psychedelic horseshit and pink reason. i hope it doesn't turn into come novelty bar like hard rock cafe or cheeseburger in paradise with memorabilia from guided by voices, great planes and gaunt; wax figures of mike rep.

the columbus museum of art is totally different than the ross art museum. i'm working in the library with the exhibition catalogues and my internship point person is in another building. basically, i'm left to my own devices and feel like the work i'm doing is really easy (like no training). bummer.

but at least i'm in there. and because i'm unsupervised i'm going to be able meander around and socialize with others in different departments more, hopefully gaining connections. i'm going to try to get a position in the administrative offices. we'll see.

also, i've taken to really, really dressing up for work. and i may have to tone it down. i don't want to look like zsazsa but i also don't want to look like drabby gob.

yesterday, i had lavender soda and ice cream and walked around the short north. jenna and i saw joey's niece at the the blue danube and was holding her and calling her animal baby.

and! i made a huge breakfast this morning. also! woke up early.

i am sooo tired. today i worked in the archives alone almost all day long. i had to go through and scan old 8x10, 4x5 and glass negatives for an upcoming exhibition. these guys haven't been touched since they were made in the 1890's and that was kind of thrilling for me. here is one of my favorites:


i know its documentary but it really reminds me of that futurist tower by marinetti (?) and i'm into it.

in other news, i start working at the columbus museum of art next tuesday. thank god. i'm going to be working in their exhibition library doing archive work and research on the history of their exhibitions.

tonight i'm going read all the books i've wanted to read over the past month but haven't had the time to because i've been too busy staying up really late not at home.

funny jk quote from yesterday:

i hate magic.

i spent all of my day today locating photographs in the archive that have been on extended loan to the museum and now must be returned to their owner. it was a sad day until i realized that our archives are so unorganized that we have multiple copies of the same prints and we don't even know it.

in other news:

i took a ride on the bike path tonight and when i came home i found a bunch of bugs in my bra.

and i've also become obsessed with beverly hills 90210 season six. especially this scene from this episode. i didn't know acting could be this unreal. thanks, luke perry.
