Path Me a Tithue

Sorry about the lack of content around here lately. I had intended to get back on track in December, but my ass is getting kicked. The day classes ended and I finished my last presentation, my body said “enough”, my head filled with snot, and I’ve been in my pyjamas hacking around the house ever since.

I still have a lot of work to do over the holidays, but nothing’s getting done. Cakes is sick too and has been home from school all week. We are watching a lot of Thomas.

I did drag my sorry ass out yesterday though. My mom is in town for a couple of days, so McHotty and I seized the chance to see the Coen brother’s latest No Country for Old Men (adapted from Cormac McCarthy’s novel). OMFG, it’s so good. The acting is superb, especially Javier Bardem as the chilling psychopath Anton Chigurh. The dusty setting and the lack of music contribute to the theme of emptiness and despair. It’s perfectly paced, dark and tense, and true to McCarthy, the Coens resist a Hollywood ending. A+ for me.

After the movie we hooked up with the MBT gang and I drowned my germs in Hoegaarden. I actually felt good for the first time in a week.





We need to do this more often.

Yes we do!

And that always happened to me at end of term, too. It's like you are running on stress and adrenaline, and as soon as you stop, it all catches up with you and lays you down for a week. It sucks. Get better soon!

Ooh, I used to hate that inevitable cold right after the end of term. Sorry you're feeling sick, and hope you get better soon!

Look like a fabulous time was had by all last night, though!

I wish I could have been there, but it just didn't work out. This new "sleep schedule" is kicking my ass. Hope MBT has another get-together soon.

Lemme know when you're feeling better so we can hang out..

So sorry you're sick -- and that Cakes is sick too -- but glad that you got out for a night with the ladies. It does the soul good.

Oh look I'm taking pictures of beers, not drinking them!

It was great to see you. I can't believe how great you look when you're sick.
