Me: Mom, do you like foie de canard?
Mom: No, I don’t like liver very much. What got you interested in that?
Me: Oh, it’s just what Hannibal Lecter is eating in the last scene of the movie.
Mom: I worry about you sometimes, Charles

I just made a pancake that could be revered as an objet d’art for its symmetry and color
I can’t wait to be done with finals and on to break so I can organize my google contact list, get a grip on google wave, and organize my flickr.
Also, I hope to read one book for leisure (? i hope), study for the GRE, and balance my check book.
Maybe, I’ll surprise my family with a christmas tree. (I miss it. It’s my favorite part.)
Todo lists are most ambitious when you feel obligated to accomplish a task that seems to stand in the way of seemingly fun action items. But after a week of finals, I find them to be insipid, non time-sensitive endeavors and end up eating Taco Bell and catching up on my ever growing Hulu queue. As the Germans say, scheiß.
With that said, I wish you the best of luck on your finals; I hope to not dissuade you in your magnificent todo list. Godspeed.
My sister just ran the Sani Stagger, a half marathon race in South Africa that’s known for being one of, if not the most, grueling marathon in the world. Why? Because the whole thing is uphill, climbing over 1200 meters above sea level in the first half of the marathon. She placed 19th overall and 3rd in her age group. Not bad at all.
