|11:55 pm - mystery google!!|
I can't remember if I have posted about this before, but if so it is worth posting again! MYSTERY GOOGLE is fantastic little google app that brings up the last thing searched for in the regular google regardless of your query. may sound pointless but I think there are 2 pretty awesome things about it.
1) Mystery google quests. Someone types a command into google--"tell someone you love them". Someone mystery google searches and gets that result...then they do it! Presto--instant game is born. I have gotten some pretty absurb quests through mystery google and some are downright creepy--like "call this number and ask from x"...but i feel a romantic comedy coming on.....
2) It provides really interesting look into what the average person is thinking about/working on/affected by. It would be cool to do a study around certain current events and see if there is a connection. Also, what does the average person spend his time searching the web for?
TRY IT. its awesome!

|06:04 pm - on the road to recovery|
ok. things are going better. ive had to be a little insistent on the rules...which are still being bent a little, but I feel like that sort of thing just needs to die out. at least, i hope so. i feel a little like this .
Baby how you been ?
You say you don't know, you won't know
until you begin.
Well can't you see me standing here,
I've got my back against the record machine
I ain't the worst that you've seen.
Oh can't you see what I mean ?

|12:53 am - return of the emo chick|
ok--so i dont like this anymore than you do....but i need to put this down before i go crazy again.
he said we were getting back together.
then he slept with his ex girlfriend.
the freshman is trying to get hot and heavy.
he doesnt seem to be able to shake her.
hes obviously flattered to be getting so much attention.
i love him and he loves me.
he agreed to try getting back together again.
he said it has to be SLOWLY.
he hangs out with the freshman as much as me.
i find that i do all the instigating.
is this all a way for him to put this off for 4 months?
what should i do?
