just really quickly

Can we talk about how Leni Riefenstahl's real name was HELEN?
That's right.
A deceased Nazi propagandist.
Just another reason why my name was best suited to the early 1900s.

5 noteworthy songs

If you are as bored as I am over here on spring break, here are five songs you should listen to:
Don't stop the music -- Rihanna Don't laugh. It's really catchy, okay?!
Gamble everything for love -- Ben Lee I forgot how much I like Ben Lee...his simple songs are really fun and easy to sing along to.
Chop me up -- Justin Timberlake ThreeSixMafia AND JT? Seriously, you can't get any better. The best part is when you can clap along at the end.
King's crossing -- Elliott Smith Just a slight change of tone from the last song. Fast forward to the first minute.
Deceptacon -- Le Tigre Thanks to Alison for introducing me to Le Tigre. Thanks to YouTube for introducing us to this ridiculous video.
Okay there we go that's all.

5 very important things that happened in the past week

1. Two days ago, a cat peed on my curtain. Today, a cat threw up on my rug. WHAT IS IT WITH THE CAT HATRED TOWARDS ME? Also, the "cat" is either Missy or Leia. Not some random feral beast. Just fyi.

2. Today I bought lovely $6.99 pink stripey pajama bottoms at Old Navy. Now I don't have to wear my raggedy tartan ones at the office (so professional, right?), or just wear my underwear around the room. The pjs drag on the floor a little bit, and look kind of like pajamas for 6 year olds (is that why they were on sale?), but whatever.

3. I started reading In Cold Blood (thanks Maggie) last night. I've never really been into reading for fun, since middle and high school beat reading. all. the. damn. time into me. Reading For Fun turned into Reading To Pass This Class or maybe Skimming And Reading the Sparknotes so I could get on to my other homework. So this is a nice change.

4. My mom's large truck and I are getting along swimmingly. Today I drove it around Durham and Hillsborough without supervision, and did not run into any mailboxes/trees/small creatures/large creatures.

5. The Subaru is officially dead :( Either we could put thousands of dollars towards fixing his 175,000 mi. engine, or we could put thousands of dollars towards buying a new car. Guess which one we're going to choose.
