as i was clearing off my coffee table tonight -- this would be a few hours after i SWEPT DUST OFF MY WALLS WITH A BROOM, which itself was a few hours after i SCRUBBED NASTY STOVETOP GREASINESS OFF MY TEA KETTLE -- i discovered this lovely juxtaposition:

ah, the irony.


over the christmas holiday, i received [along with my "Recipie" book] several inquiries about whether i am getting my master's degree, or interested in being a cpa, etcetera, etcetera. sometimes i think about it, but then i look around at all the stress my student-friends are going through, and i am reminded:

and then i realize i rather enjoy the eight-to-five thing.

My favorite part of the picture is idea that Miami is such a "sober" place...

i think if you look at the article in the miamian, it's not really saying that miami or any college for that matter, is a sober place.

bartender, ha! no, but over thanksgiving i guess i mentioned that i don't know much about mixed drinks, so my cousin bought this book for me for christmas. it is VERY entertaining, as well as informative.

and yes, i'll also point out that the article is about the *quest* for underage sobriety at miami, and elsewhere... searching for the elusive balance between fatalism and overreaction.

My bad. I used that Miamian to wrap a present, and did not read it.

if you have the name rachel, you must be required to wrap presents with the miamian. my sister did the same.

wow i am a complete idiot. we came up with that nickname and i totally mistook her for the real rachel mc. i thought it was her all along. how embarassing.

no, no... amusing! i love it, joy mcH.

hey... what's going on here? who wraps presents with bad magazines, anyway? though I used to use my blind neighbor's braille SCIENCE magazine to wrap some. at least that had texture. I think I took them out of the dumpster.

by the way, grad school is a great place to pick up men.

hardly a good reason to shell out thousands of dollars!
