Month: July 2006

Well today was much better. As it turns out, as long as you’re not in the middle of traffic, New Yorkers are actually very friendly. Much nicer than Chicagoans actually.

This morning I ate challah french toast for breakfast. It was muy delicioso. I found it funny that for $1.50 you could add ham, bacon or sausage. Now that is just crazy.

We went to Brooklyn around noon and it was already closed for Shabbat. What the heck?

My Dad bought me the most beautiful white gold Star of David necklace at this jewelry store here.

Tonight we saw The Drowsy Chaperone on Broadway. It was wonderful. We sat in the 6th row, about 15 feet from the stage. It made me miss being on stage. Maybe. Also, Sutton Foster is amazing.

My Mom called and said Ivy is back. She;s been gone for about six weeks. She was found on Ridgemoor, north of Hawley. Which means she managed to cross both Midlothian and Hawley and live to tell about it. I could never even do that lol.


Tourists with tsores

Well this vacation has gotten off to a very rough start and we were all very angry for almost the entire day. At the moment I am hating it here and I just want to go home. This city is filthy and disgusting and it smells horrible. Everyone is rude and everything is expensive. The traffic does not move and it takes 45 minutes to hail a cab. They also have open cellars all over the place and I almost fell into one. And the Altar Boyz box office guy lied to us and said there is no student rush policy. Well tomorrow is another day. Hopefully it will go better. I just don’t understand why this city is so dirty and smelly.

I am, however, extremely brave apparently. After I ran diagonally across a busy intersection downtown, I stood on a corner by myself, at night, in the middle of the street to hail a cab. No luck, however it was funny that I felt completely comfortable doing that. And I could never do that in Chicago. Here you can just walk into traffic, because everybody does that. It’s weird because I do that at school and now I can do it here, so it will be weird to go home and forget that if I walk into traffic I will die lol.

Well tomorrow is another day, hopefully this one goes well. I would also like to mention that if anyone happens to see on Marni’s Xanga or MySpace that I said Philadelphia is a state…she is lying. I also only had two hours of sleep last night lol.

Here’s to tomorrow being a good day! 🙂

Start spreading the news, Im leaving today
I want to be a part of it – New York, New York
These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it – new york, new york

I wanna wake up in a city, that doesnt sleep
And find Im king of the hill – top of the heap

These little town blues, are melting away
Ill make a brand new start of it – in old new york
If I can make it there, Ill make it anywhere
Its up to you – New York, New York

New york, new york
I want to wake up in a city, that never sleeps
And find Im a number one top of the list, king of the hill
A number one

These little town blues, are melting away
Im gonna make a brand new start of it – in old new york
And if I can make it there, Im gonna make it anywhere

It up to you – New York New York

Are there certain brain cells that men don’t have? There must be.

I have been very cranky lately. I know I am ALWAYS cranky, but I have been especially cranky recently cuz I need to get the heck out of Lake County. I can only take it in moderation. I realised last week that i am extra cranky, but seriously, when someone who has known me for 16 years is telling me I’m cranky, I know there’s a problem. I’m leaving Illinois in a day and a half to go on a long overdue vacation. I’ll only be gone for five days, but I will be moving back to school in just three weeks. In fact, I put in my two weeks at Rainforest the day after I come back from NYC. And my first night back at school I will have the suite to myself. Which I really need. CCH Bash Week, Mafia, and my own suite for a night…I can’t wait.

But anyway, if my crankiness has affected anyone, I apologise and I should be back to my normal level of cranky once I get back to school.

And even though I am so burned out on school, this will probably be my easiest semester ever. Or leasts stressful, as far as classes and living situation go.

I am actually quite excited for Epidemiology; it should be interesting.

You’re Totally Sarcastic

You sarcastic? Never! You’re as sweet as a baby bunny.

Seriously, though, you have a sharp tongue – and you aren’t afraid to use it.

And if people are too wimpy to deal with your attitutde, then too bad. So sad.

Too cool for school?

I seriously want to drop out of school. I have no motivation to go to class or do my work, and I haven’t…ever. It’s sad that the fact that God wants me to is not enough for me. I am a bad person. I am not going to drop out of school, but I am just so burned out and ready to be done. I need a Kit Kat. GIMME A BREAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK. AAAAAHHHHHHHHH so ready to be done. Need out. Someone marry me and I will just be a house wife. I can make noodle kugel. And chicken soup. Please? Blah.

PASADENA, Calif. – Tina Fey is leaving the anchor chair at “Saturday Night Live.”

Fey says she’s quitting the show after six seasons as head writer and co-anchor of the “Weekend Update” fake news segment to focus on her new NBC prime-time series, “30 Rock,” which debuts Oct. 11.

“I’m out of the fake news business now,” Fey told the Television Critics Association’s summer meeting Saturday.

She announced her “SNL” departure on Friday night’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

“If you’re asking if I’m happy about it, no,” said Lorne Michaels, executive producer of “30 Rock” and “SNL.” “Tina disappearing is a huge hole in the writing staff.”

Michaels said various individuals and duos would be tested in September to decide who will replace Fey on the “Weekend Update” segment.

Also leaving “SNL” is regular Rachel Dratch, who plays a sketch actress on Fey’s new sitcom about a fictional late-night show.

Fey, 36, first joined “SNL” as a writer in 1997 and became head writer in 1999.

She is writing, starring and executive producer of her new show.

“I’m going to go nuts,” she said Saturday. “I do not understand the train that is about to hit me. We’re trying to get as much done in the writers’ room now before we start and I tried to gather a staff of writers who are experienced so they can proceed when I’m on the set.”

“30 Rock” also stars Alec Baldwin and former “SNL” regular Tracy Morgan.

Why, Tina Fey, why?

So as it turns out, my Dad wound up not needing Angioplasty afterall. Thanx to anyone who prayed.

Sunday night I had dinner with Rachel. That was the first time we had seen each other since 4th grade, since our family is so messed up. We ate at Rainforest, of course and I made sure Zach Raymer waited on us. I walked right over to the table that had just gotten up and sat down before it was even cleaned off haha. After that we went to Starbucks so Rachel could get some coffee so she wouldn’t fall asleep. Then we went to TGI Fridays so she could see her friend that lives in Gurnee and so I could meet one of her friends. We ran into like half of the Safari Guides there. Yay I’m so happy to finally have someone in my family to hang out with. I had so much fun with her.

Jami: Next year The OC and Grey’s Anatomy are going to be on at the same time. I don’t know what I’m going to do.
Rachel: WHAT?! I hate society.

The power went out last night at like 10:45 and stayed off til about 8am. It sucked. What’s weird is it went out DURING a storm, which like never happens here. Usually it will storm and then a few days later the power will go out, out of nowhere. But only on this side of the street. The people across the street never lose power. Except last night.

So my doctor said I can start on The Patch instead of The Pill if I want, since you can wear it for six months in a row and then go one week without, so you only get your period twice a year, which sounds good to me!! And I learned that in my Human Health class. The only problem is sometimes people experience breakthrough bleeding with that, which is not good. SO I am going to work my way up to six months, instead of doing it right away. It also will not be interacting with my medication, because I won’t be taking anything else orally. The only problem is there is 60% more hormones in it, so I may go crazy. I have a three week sample and if I go crazy, I will just go back to The Pill. I’m going to start it in like two or three weeks, so if I go crazy and I don’t notice, please someone tell me. I lost a best friend for that reason (because SHE went crazy from the hormones), so please let me know. The last thing I need is to lose more friends.

Also, Katherine is going to be on VH1 again on Thursday night because her team won last week. So everyone watch VH1 at 9pm Central on Thursday!

Jami86e (9:28:06 PM): the dairy queen near you has food
twztdbuttafly420 (9:28:31 PM): yeah
Jami86e (9:28:41 PM): not here
twztdbuttafly420 (9:29:24 PM): yeah, but your burger king has coke. its pretty even
