back in action!

hey everybody! it's been too long. i think the problem is that my creative writing juices are being sucked up by the ass-load of papers i have to write, and it leaves me nothing much great to write about to y'all. nevertheless, i thought i'd post today, since it's the first time i've been on movable type for ages. i actually figured out how to delete comments ALL BY MYSELF!! frankly, the comments weren't that offensive, but i think i'm high with the power of being able to delete a comment that someone far off made on my site. just try to welcome threequarters back to cementhorizon life! i'll delete your ass so fast you'll be... you'll be... well, when i think of something funny that you will be, i'll let you know.

in other news, this guy came over to see one of our vacant rooms (three people are moving out in june... it is so much sadness) and we realized we had music theory class together all freshman year! 8 o'clock in the fucking morning, 5 days a week, two semesters. it was a total shock for both of us, especially realizing that that was *6 YEARS AGO*. six years. i'm amazed he recognized me, i was usually buried in oversized hoodies and barely had my eyes open in that class. he knows trevor c. and reminded me of a beautiful moment, when we all had to compose original pieces of music at the end of the year, when he had trevor c. sing his composition, which entailed a lot of falsetto singing about the joys of dental floss. ahhh, freshman year. anyway, i think he's going to move in. i'm hoping he doesn't have too many expectations for what i'll be like based on my freshman self. i don't know, have i changed that much? i feel like i'm a different person, but i'm probably not. my hair's just curlier, and that's just a perm.

your current self compared to your freshman year self is so completely changed i wouldn't even know where to begin. (not in any bad way, mind, just different.)

finish all your crap early and come to this damn indian dancing thing with me, dammit! freshman year erica would have!

sometimes i still wonder where trevor c. is now. when the last you hear of someone is that they're running thru the woods naked, high on mushrooms, your expectations are only so few, but all of them are fascinating.

p.s. i find it really cool that you have randomly reconnected with someone from UPS like this. that's amazing.

gasp. umm, find out as much as you can as discreetly as you can. i'm in the market since mark is being a jerk right now.

well, trevor (this guy's name is also trevor, coincidentally... somewhat confusing) signed a contract today, so i'll have plenty of time to find things out discreetly. 'though i'm not sure how i feel about the motives behind the mission, missy. move ooon, baby, move oooon!

hmmm, would freshman erica have said that? =)

giggle, giggle. you mean you really think that I would hook up with him again? Jolie, common' dear. I just wrote that since mark was annoying me by looking over my shoulder.

I'm more just curious about what happened to tc since the last i saw him, he showed up uninvited in dc, declared he was "born again," tried to save me since he had corrupted my innocence, and had apparently gained all this clarity while shrooming in the woods of san francisco. There's bound to be some interesting stories there is all i'm saying.

oops, i meant erica, not jolie.

freshman erica would have been too busy not moving on from her obsession with sam to have the energy to tell anyone else to move on. =P

i count sam obsession as number 3 way in which current erica is different from freshman erica. #1 is straight and #2 is christian.

freshman erica is christian???

#4 a virgin

Posted by: marina on April 28, 2004 02:20 PM

was that too far? that might have been too far

Posted by: marina on April 28, 2004 02:21 PM

wait, erica is not a virgin?? holy shit, have the rest of you been having sex too? oh, satan, will your crafty wiles never cease corrupting the pure of heart?

Wow - I am the lamest co-blogger ever. 11 comments on the post before I get around to noticing it even exists. tragic. Of course, I blame it on the evils of grad school.

#5 freshman Erica is suzieQ apple pie

Current Erica is cinnamon apple scones that she baked herself, and a soy latte that she sips while making eyes at the hot girl in the Von Dutch-esq hat that's sitting accross from her in the berkeley cafe'

a few quick clarifications:

freshman erica was not christian, but had, admittedly, just woken up from a god-lovin' haze the year before.

current erica doesn't drink soy lattes, but she will take it into consideration if it means that more hot girls in trucker hats will sit across from her in the cafe.

everything else, pretty much on target. =P

Posted by: erica on April 28, 2004 07:19 PM

I'm pretty sure that soy lattes attract hot girls in trucker hats at a higher rate than the typical variety. I don't have any official empirical data to back that up, but it's an educated observation.
