Dude, so apparently for the trilogy screening you can join this thing called a "Line Party" in which you are put in contact with all the other LotR lovers and you get together and all dress up as different characters and stuff. I can't decide whether or not I want to take part in this :D Or if anyone else who is coming with me will take part. haha. Anyway I get more pumped about it everyday. I have to reread the books too before I watch it. *giggle*
So I've started this short story and I can't decide whether or not I like it yet. Or where I want to take it. Like.. it starts off so well and yet I don't know where it's going.
Here's what I have so far:
He hated the way she squeezed the toothpaste tube in the middle. It even said to, right on the tube in red capital letters, “FOR BEST RESULTS, SQUEEZE TUBE FROM THE BOTTOM AND FLATTEN AS YOU GO UP.” She came in to the bathroom as he was thinking about it. Her frizzy hair was half collapsed from spending seven hours crushed against a pillow; it made her head look bent out of shape, like a Tupperware container that had been put in the microwave too long.
Hiking up her robe, she pulled her underwear down and sat down on the toilet.
“Do you have to do that now?” he said. The red handle of his toothbrush waggled he spoke and foam fell from his lips into the sink.
“Most people pee in the morning, Dave.”
He spat into the sink, filled his hands with water, rinsed out his mouth and left.
Jean hated the way he never used a cup.
where to go, where to go.. such decisions. good thing I have till the end of the quarter to work on it. I don't want them to be beautiful people, obviously. I just want them to be normal, and flawed. Because as my fiction prof says, "nobody wants to read about people that aren't troubled. That's boring."
Not much else going on. Another four hours of dance today. wheee. I better be getting good with all this time I've been putting into it. WE better kick ass at Purdue. Dude, I hardly even ever see my roomie anymore cuz I'm never around. It sux0r. :o(
Anyway lately I've been in this mood of "what is, is" and it's kind of nice. You know? I'm just like.. chillin out. getting up at 6:30 to study and falling back asleep when I finish until it's time to go down for breakfast. Doing work, not stressing out too much, eating, sleeping, walking around, talking to people when i want to. It all feels very low key, though I know it isn't. *shrug* :D
Also, a big happy birthday to my brother, who can now go out and legally buy his own wine when he wants to cook.
