the BRUTAL, UGLY truth of my FABULOUS, BEAUTIFUL life.

10:23 a.m. + 2004-01-05 = gameplans and slight swenis-envy.

sistersister (along with stepfather-type) leaves for airport at one. they fly to sweden. i would consider them lucky but, well.... the entire month of january in Jönköping?... that's hardly luck. still, i'm making a point of filling kristin in on the little things that make a difference: ICA v. Konsum (ICA is cheaper, but Konsum has better vegetarian products). the beauty of swedish pizza joints. the "dangerous" neighbourhoods of stockholm and how we can easily laugh in the face of such danger. etc. et al. maybe she could bring me back as many flyggande mattor candies as she possibly can cram into her suitcase, and no, she can't borrow my copy of "a heartbreaking work of a staggering genius" because i don't want it droppt in the bathtub.

okej, so maybe i'm slightly envious/jealous. but smalltown sweden for january with underclassmen can't hold a candle to smalltown minnesota for over-a-week with the two hottest men (ever) in my bed. (yes, one of them is myself. how you say?.... "duh."?) speaking of which, mum has asked when my "friend" is coming. (already! the anxiety!) and at some point before i had fully shut the front door locking evil inside the house with all her christmas letters, i did manage to catch, "he'll have only a few familydays to deal with." "mum... NO." "i want to hear his life goals." "noooooo-ah," i whine and scurry out to the frigid outside. [p.s. a coldsnap without snow is the most obnoxious of things.]

a whiplashing change of topic: i'm trying hard to formulate a plan for this day. i'm really fighting the urge to be a lazybastard. there are a few friends in the cities that i havenot seen this holiday season yet. there is also the possibility of a free phone upgrade, but that would require mall of america excursion and i'm not entirely sure i have the energy for that. also, mixtape needs to be finished, i want to sent package by wednesday. then there's the plight of the macademia nut spring roll with brown sugar ice cream and starfruit pickles. it simply must be made relatively soon. i need to find old coffee cans in order to make the ice cream, i wouldn't even know where to begin with that... and to the foodsavvy readers out there... what is exactly meant by an ice bath?

oh good god. i must get going. i have all this and more to do.

[go team.]
