you have no idea how much i want some mcdonalds right now. it’s somewhat embarassing that i’m craving this heart-attack renderer, but it looks so good, and i’ve been eating tofu for the past three weeks. this past holiday weekend left a bitter taste in my mouth. while i love extra days off, i felt as though all my visits with a myriad of friends lacked something. saturday i was full of remorse and could barely conjure up enough strength to get out of my jammies to meet the day. tis why i stayed inside until late that evening when i decided to venture outward, as to party until the sun came up. ironically, i chose not to, and instead found myself sitting across from fortman at norms engrossed in a conversation with two of my favorite regulars- bruce and tom. the remainder of the weekend kind of fell flat, i feel justified to say. i cooked dinner sunday evening for M & A and produced this wonderful dessert consisting of phyllo dough, hazelnuts, sugar, maple syrup infused whipped cream, and strawberries. i also caught the end titles of Mad Men with Mr. I.
Monday brought about endless piles of half-completed homework. i drank too many cups of caffine, and i fell asleep without being properly prepared for what tuesday would bring. now i find myself, on this wonderful wednesday evening, a day ahead of schedule, with a throbbing headache. marilyn monroe is regulating my thoughts per usual, and i have been filled with a sensation of contentedness, and i know not why.
to celebrate the month of october, i am reading frankenstein, which proves to be everything pride and prejudice was not. this is engaging, captivating, and vivid, where as jane austen’s masterpiece was a somber critique of the social evolution of 19th century england. i found a wonderful recipe for panna cotta, which i’m so enthused by. i’m unsure as to whether or not i want to pursue that tomorrow evening, or if i’d prefer baking a blackberry fig pie. saturday renders those horrible standardized tests, though i’m in part glad, because then i will be able to sleep all afternoon with a proper excuse. i’m trying to allot myself time to keep adding to my play, though i seem to be losing more time than i am gaining it. so it goes, i suppose. i’ve decided that it’s time to go back to therapy, seeing as i could use another POV that isn’t biased and comes from someone familiar.
i’ll drop off film tomorrow or on friday… depending on how productive i’d like to be.
