i'm comforted knowing that after obscene goods are spread, the inside cleaner will be waiting patiently.

i took my last final tonight. the huge wave of relief i was expecting never arrived. i guess i burned out 2 weeks ago and have been running on apathy since. grades will be in a couple weeks.

ian and elly bought me a blackberry fruit tart as a little "congratulations" gift. it's cold enough for hot tea.

my father's 60th bday party.
my cousin's dickface husband, my cousin, and another cousin's fiance who wore this S&M leather top and was spilling out all over the place. her get-up was completely inappropriate for a family party and i really like that she didn't give a rat's ass. the whole affair was an unexpected good time full of mingling and copius food and drink.

there was a low point [of course!] when drunk dad and i butted heads, but i'm working on forgive & forget when it comes to our relationship. he is who he is and he isn't going to change.

+ lush from the UK coop arrived!

- today was horrible.

- i'm exhausted and skipping w4d3 of c25k today. will do it tomorrow. week 5 will be killer.

- when i come back from my run i'll work on a final paper for my biblical & classical backgrounds lit class. it's only 4 pages/2 sources but it's one of the more challenging papers i have to write because i have almost no background knowledge on the subject. i never took a classical or biblical lit class. i never read milton or dante or virgil or homer and never before did i have to examine lit from a biblical or classical perspective. my professor is an interesting man, passionately well-versed in the subject area; unfortunately, this is a high level english course and, perhaps justifiably, he expects students in the class to have a solid foundation to base their written work on. he doesn't teach, he guides. this class pokes directly at my weak spot -- anything written pre-19th century [shakespeare is an exception]. i feel compelled to justify myself, to scream that this is not my area of expertise, that i know far more about realism, romantiscism, naturalism, modernism, ---ism, but really, what an enormous weak spot it is.

- final assessment projects due tuesday. 18 page paper due on wednesday.

+ i'm not taking summer courses. 3 months of brain freedom coming up. perhaps i'll dabble into classics in my spare time.

+ my daughter is pure joy.

i pulled eloise's dirty diaper off and said -- "let's go to the bathroom to wash up." i went in ahead of her; she follows me in a minute later, naked, with sunglasses on, screaming -- "SUNNY DAY!"

perhaps if she keeps up the entertainment this morning, i won't turn her in for a new & improved 9am-wake-up-time model.

.yawn.

eloise woke up at 5:16am today, bright eyed and bushy tailed, asking for breakfast.

now i really wish i didn't stay up until 4am drinking rum & cokes and playing wii sports with ian, but she never gets up this early, ever. this must be her mother's day gift to moi. yay.

coffee.

when i heard that one of my favorite musicians [amanda palmer] in collaboration with her former high school drama teacher and his current students are putting together a play inspired by one of the best albums of all time [neutral milk hotel's "in the aeroplane over the sea"], all with a strange and unpredictable variable [high school play] thrown in, holy shit, i wanted to drive to MA to see it. that wasn't going to happen with the load of work i have during the last week of class, but i just found out that tonight's performance will be broadcast on the internet @ 7:30pm!

today i planted tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, and a windowbox full of herbs (basil, rosemary, thyme, and mint).


green beans. i like them well enough, but they are not a vegetable i get excited about cooking. i picked up a pound of green beans thinking i'll toss them in the oven with some olive oil and garlic, as i usually do, for a quick and nondescript side dish. as i was cooking dinner a whimsical change of plan was made and the results were well worth it. this green bean/cherry tomato sauté is one of the best dishes i've ever cooked.
