Okay, I can only handle putting down a few thoughts and realizations every day, cuz now that weíve actually begun work Im gonna be SO BUSY. But first of all, Iím SOOO EXCITED for Italy vs. Germany tomorrow. They need to win. After that, they could potentially beat France because I think Franceís victory over Brazil may have been a fluke. I didnít see the whole game, but the one goal was just a random-bounce-off-the-leg. Which, mind you, was the only way Italy ever had a goal against them. So France could be really good, but not necessarily. Anyways, I have my outfit almost ready. Dark green shirt, white skirt, tomorrow Iíll pick up my red shoes (they better have my size or Iíll find some others), red belt and rose for my hair but maybe it looks too spanish but also red glass chili pepper earrings and a big red necklace. Oh and I have red lipstick. Iím SOOO EXCITED yes I already said that.
Now Iím sorta watching ďTango &CashĒ which is a crappy cop vs. bad guy movie from the year I was born, with Sylvester Stallone and some guy I donít care about and Terri Hatcher as the stripper and designated hot chick. But Stallone was definitely at his peak in this movie. I mean eyes donít change but in this movie especially his eyes are so gorgeousÖ and heís ďspeakingĒ Italian (I mean its dubbed. He probably can speak Italian. He better.) The rest of his face is pretty funny looking right now actually, but who cares about that. AHHHHHHHHHHH. Youíd think Iíd have enough with all the italian guys around, but no. Actually today I only saw like 3 hot guys I think, which is way down from the usual amount.
Also, as always, I am so sweaty. If I stayed in one place long enough I would drown. Want to know how much Iíve been sweating? (Yes, you do). Iíve been drinking probably twice as much water as I usually do and peeing the same amount. You wanted to know!
Another reason italian guys are awesome: they arenít so insecure about their dicks that they need to drive a noisy escalade with 20 inch rims and spinners. Yeah, the people who can afford ferraris will buy ferraris, but otherwise no one fucking cares about what their car ďsays about themĒ. Theyíll drive an old FIAT that could fit through their doorway AND THEY LOOK BETTER driving it.
Okay this is way too long but theres so much to say. But theres so many creepers here. The guys are either hot or creepy. And theres a kind of fine line between them.

I bought some useful things today: a pretty big flag, a bumper sticker, some other stickers, (you should know by now I was in a touristy area at one point), a gardenia, yummy Italian toothpaste, and I donít remember what else. I think the gardeniaís named Alessandro, because after I bought it the movie Alexander was on, which is basically a few hours of colin farrell being a woman (with very bad highlights and an interesting mini skirt). And Iíd already thought of this plant being given a manís name even though itís so delicateÖ well Alessandro works pretty well. Iím gonna have it for 5 weeks in my apartment so its not really a waste of money, and at the end Iíll give it to the receptionist at the Candia apartments because I met her today and sheís extremely nice, which is especially notable because she has a French accent. Hough-hough-hough (thatís my French laugh).

I love being here during the world cup. About half an hour before Italy played, the streets emptied out, and there were flags hanging out of windows everywhere (mine is sorta visible from the street but no one really looks 6 floors up.) After every goal I ran onto the balcony and could hear people yelling and honking horns and going crazy, it made me SO HAPPY. I was just so tired during the first half it was hard to keep my eyes open even though I wanted to so bad, and the only thing close to a dessert in the room was tic-tacs (the tropical cherry kind!) So my mom and I went up to the roof cafť and I got some sorta gelato covered in chocolate and it woke me up entirely. But where was del piero?? I never saw him, che peccato. People are singing ďvittoriaĒ now and waving flags around, its awesome. It looks like everyone is walking down to piazza del popolo, its basically a parade. Theyíre now singing the tune ďseven nation armyĒ I think, out of key and with Italian words, and Iím jealous cuz Iím just staring from up here and I also donít know the words to that victory song. cant wait till the next game when I can run around outside with my roommates. Oh yeah, poor Argentina, but whatever. Iím pretty confident that Italyís better than GermanyÖ it would kick much ass if they won. Molto culo.

Why is everyone in Rome skinny? I saw one fat person today and he could have had a tumor or some health condition, hes the ONLY one! My grandmaís pretty damn skinny and basically lives off of costco samples, and I think thatís where I get my wrists and arms from. Definitely not the rest of my body. I think Iím like 1.5 Italians wide. On the bright side, if it matters, almost every guy is gorgeous. Well I need to make some better calculations than that, while Iím up on my balcony during the day. But, at least, one in four is good looking. And good looking in Italy means VERY good looking, and also smoking, unfortunately. Iíve realized that I can measure distance in Rome by cigarettes on the ground. Itís just different for every area. Where I was there were about 10 cigarettes per square foot, so I passed up thousands.

:: Mood: lonely
:: Music: pixzies (wow thats crazy)

my finger is cold
im drunk on sad. (its not a drink). i watched the last 4 episodes of arrested development with lizzie. then i drove home yelling to the pixies. now im lonely and my room is under occupation by A MOTH so im sitting in the hall (trying to drive it out towards the light but its not working). after school i tried venting to my mom and ended up crying and then she got bored of what i was saying and cut me off with "stop repeating yourself i know what you're going to say". and she TOTALLY didnt. overall a kind of depressing day although for a time i was very giddy... oh yeah it was like a 10 minute window after school.

if i could figure out how to do tremolo i would play the godfather theme on the mandolin to console myself, but i guess ill just try to get some english reading done.

"Ebola is often characterized by the sudden onset of fever, intense weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat. This is often followed by vomiting, diarrhoea, rash, impaired kidney and liver function, and in some cases, both internal and external bleeding."

:: Music: smashing pumpkins

ive had a migraine all day
still no chicago letter

but theres always arrested development quotes

Michael: Gob, Steve Holt is your son. He probably just feels a connection.
GOB: He doesn't know what he feels. I'm tired of being told - my God. What is this feeling?
Michael: You know, the feeling that you're feeling is just what many of us call... a "feeling".
GOB: It's not like envy, or even hungry.
Michael: Could it be love?
GOB: I know what an erection feels like, Michael. No, it's the opposite - it's like my heart is getting hard.
Michael: Maybe you're ready to be a father.

college! woo!
ive literally snapped and gone crazy from being in a weird hyper state, expecting my important letters from colleges for a week now. i know i didn't get into MIT, but i'd be proud of myself if it was a deferral, and i really just want the frickin letter already. that was sent 2 fridays ago but supposedly they had mailing issues (and snow), but by now everyone has it anyways. then theres chicago, which im hoping is an acceptance letter, that everyone has already too. no mail for me. stupid fuckin PO box why cant i have a mailbox the post office workers are lazy whores. ffffpppggmotherfucker.

but speaking of rejection letters, i read that on the princeton app in the "a few details" section they just want you to be honest. who votes i do this:
*book- i may have to say kite runner just because of the part where the kid took out the evil guys eye, it reminded me of my favorite part of kill bill. sweetness.
*website- milkman dan comics... here
*recording (ivy-league for "cd")- blood sugar sex magik by red hot chili peppers. by far the best cd ever. don't even bother disagreeing with me.
*keepsake- a square of 4 little mosaic pieces i stole from pompeii... the last one left in this pretty broken up rubbley room and no one was around so i pulled it out of the dirt. it reminds me of pompeii :).
*movie- kill bill. see "kite runner".
*source of inspiration- talking to friends online late at night when i havent finished my homework
*news source- i dont religiously read one newspaper... i glance at the pictures in whatevers in front of me or sometimes read an article if the headline mentions murder
*2 adjectives your friends would use to describe you- weird, crazy

anyways now ive moved on to the godfather soundtrack... and its making me cry. not in a depressed way, just crying. im so glad i dont do drugs.

ps katherine and i had a very intellectually stimulating conversation that i wish i wrote about on the stanford app...
k: my mom makes ASIAN spaghetti
k: you can't beat that in terms of weirdness
a: hahahaha
a: welll you know what they say about marco polo stealing china's ideas
a: also i read (for italian homework) that italians didnt HAVE tomatoes until explorers got some from america
a: so like, 1500s
a: and if they got the idea of pasta from marco polo's trip to china that was probably 1500s right
a: what the fuck did italians eat before then?!!!
k: hahaha
k: those cheaters
a: i guess olives
k: olive sauce...
k: yummy
well now i have a research project for my "italian cultural studies" focus at columbia... or "italian studies" at berkeley... or archaeology/anthropology/ancient studies anywhere

:: Mood: bored
:: Music: bullet w/ butterfly wings

i am literally bored! amazing! of course i will start some new applications soon, and that homework i never got to, and that will all be super fun.

for now ill just read this book that seems awesome- The Dante Club, a murder mystery, it has a FUZZY COVER (aka what philip calls "matte") and whatsmore, theres blood spatters on it (printed on the cover, silly). so you know its good. so far it has been the most gory thing ive ever read. ill leave it at that.

... maggots!
