dave has been gone since friday and i don't think he's coming back until wednesday. i think he went to san diego (which i find hilarious, considering his ties to that place) or something since he's one of those admissions type people. he's a nice guy, but i have definitely enjoyed having the room all to myself these past couple of days. don't have to worry about anyone coming in while i'm watchin my high class porn, and i can play all my music as loud as i want all the damn time!
and they just elected a new pope, a joseph ratzinger from germany. i think dontre had mentioned the new pope could be from africa...but that is obviously not the case. he's taking the name of benedict xvi, which does not roll off the tongue as easily as john paul ii. i'm watching the whole deal on msnbc and the new pope just came out in all his papalness looking pretty awesome, i have to admit. but i reaaaaally don't see myself becoming all religious, and if i did, i definitely wouldn't be catholic. considering that this new pope, from what the "journalists" on tv are saying (tv journalists can't hold a candle to print journalists, after all), was john paul's right hand man, that would probably mean that all the things i hated about the catholic church won't be changing anytime soon. ok they just said he sileneced liberal theologians and some other crap about controversial issues that didn't sound kosher so yes catholocism is not in my future to the max for sure.
but anywho, enough of this papal mumbo jumbo. there's only two weeks left pretty much til' i'm done with school. my finals and final papers are all occuring in those two weeks, so thankfully while everyone else is slaving away studying their asses off during final's week, i'll be chillin like matt dillon on penicilin. and since i can have a shitload of fun leading up to graduation, here are a few of the things that i would like to get accomplished before i graduate from nyu. and i know my ass will still be in new york after graduating, but i'll also be broke trying to pay for food, rent, and utilities (in addition to the random trip to dc every now and then), so i won't have the cash money needed to fund all these new york excursions. might as well act now while i've got more money in the bank than scrooge mcduck. speaking of my "job", i think i was supposed to start yesterday but i'm not entirely sure...i've been calling the guy who interviewed me (since i'm supposed to be working for him) constantly and leaving messages and emails up the wazoo, but he hasn't got back to me to let me know what the deal is...i'm contemplating just showing up next week and being like yes i'm supposed to start working or some such thing...but i'm not sure what the crap i should do. hmmmmm! hope i don't get fired or some shit before i even start working. that'd be some shit right out of friday right there.
oh right...on with the list of crap to do.
- go to jamba juice, to see what all the hullabaloo is about. plus i've never had a smoothie before!
- go to bubba gump shrimp company, because i LOVE shrimp as much (if not more so) as the actual bubba gump. and if i don't go now i never will since there are only like 2 or 3 of them on the east coast and new york is the closest one (i think the other ones are in south carolina and florida or something.
- go to the moma!!!! i've only been to the met and the guggenheim...then again i've lived here so long, and i view museum going as more of a touristy thing you do freshman year when you're all wide eyed and ooooo-ing and awwww-ing over everything. but i'm down for some modern art...when it's free of course.
and i guess that's about it for now...although i'm sure something will pop into my head over the next couple of days.
and nintendojo is hiring again! yaaaaaaaaay! hopefully i'll have my application for that finished by the 25th. they're looking for a news editor, and while i'd much rather be reviewing games i'll take what i can get. i have been trained as a news reporter after all so maybe i can put all these skills to use. hopefully i'll get that job so i can be well on my way to a superstar career in video game journalism. and then i'll get paid for what i love to do all day! bwahahahahaha...isn't that everyone's dream in life anyway?
and now for my favorite friday quotes, despite it being tuesday:
"playing with my money is like playing with my emotions, smokey." - big worm
"you got to be a stupid motherfucker to get fired on your day off" - smokey
"you just got knocked the FUCK out!" smokey
"i got mind control over Deebo. When he say shut up - i be quiet. but when he leave, i be talking again" - smokey
