|My Patrick Deacon on the Radio Jacket
After seeing TV on the Radio last night, Terrill and I decided that our "all crazy, all the time" dream band would consist of:
with a special guest, Andrew W.K.
If someone could make that happen we would both really appreciate it.

So I might have a minor crush on Brad Paisley, which I developed after
hearing him sing "Ticks", which is a gross/hot song. Mostly gross. And I just wikipedia-ed him. His wife is from Father of the Bride/Relativity and his son's middle name is Huckleberry (HUCKLEBERRY!). But I still have a crush.
I'm going to go vomit myself to sleep.

|you are closer to death than i
After sitting and listening to him for an hour, I finally figured it out: my Spirituality & Social Work professor sounds exactly like Cowslip from Watership Down. It's kind of disturbing.

If someone could lend me a copy just so I can watch it once, I would be eternally grateful.

|elective class for next semester...
SSW CP 764 Group Dynamics
This course provides an opportunity to learn experientially about groups and about oneself in a group. Students assume a major responsibility for developing as a group and for reflecting upon its processes and content, structure and leadership. This involves critical examination of small group theory, as well as students’ use of the dynamic experience to refine and enhance their use of self as group workers. Schiller. 3 cr, 2nd sem.
SSW HB 723 Adult Psychopathology
This course provides students with a framework for understanding human behavior when there are challenges to healthy functioning. The descriptive approach offered by DSM-IV is used as a basis for assessment and diagnosis, and emphasis is placed on learning about the etiologies, phenomenology, and course of the most commonly seen mental disorders. Throughout the course, differing conceptual frameworks and ethical dilemmas in assessment and practice are explored. Case materials from students, from films, and from the instructor are used to help integrate clinical practice concepts. Furlong. 3 cr, 1st & 2nd sem.
SSW HB 727 Child Psychopathology
This course explores the disorders of childhood from a developmental perspective within a family systems context. It focuses on etiology (biological, psychological, and social), differential diagnosis, and the implications for social work intervention. Saunders. 3 cr, 1st & 2nd sem.
SSW HB 741 Family Violence in Society
This course introduces students to the effects of family violence on individuals and communities. Special focus is given to the treatment of children, women, and elders affected by the violence of physical, psychological, and sexual abuse. In addition, clinical interventions for batterers who perpetrate physical and sexual abuse will be discussed. This course examines family violence from an ecological perspective and is relevant to social work practice with all populations and age groups. 3 cr.
SSW HB 744 Spirituality and Social Work Practice
Prereq: open to students outside of School of Social Work with permission of Human Behavior Department Chair. Based on the assumption that social work is a profession that wants to understand the whole person-in-the-environment, this course explores the interrelationship between spirituality and social work practice. In this course “spirituality” explores the human longing for a sense of meaning through morally responsible relationships among diverse individuals, families, communities, and cultures. The course provides a general framework for spiritually sensitive practice, and students formulate individual practice frameworks derived from assignments, class discussion, personal interests, ethics, and values. This course presents an integrative, multidisciplinary approach. Comparative religious studies, anthropology, sociology, psychology, and social work provide historical, cultural, and religious background and philosophy to this course and social work practice. Lezotte. 3 cr, 2nd sem.
I have to pick one.

Really... nothing compares to the disappointment of sitting down on a Friday night with a glass of Charles Shaw and some delicious pasta I slaved over, expecting to enjoy season 2, disc 1 of Gilmore Girls (in anticipation of Milo Ventimiglia's arrival in disc two or three) and NOT GETTING THE RIGHT FUCKING MOVIE. FUCK YOU, NETFLIX'S QUALITY CONTROL.
|seriously you guys...
Gossip Girl. For real. I think I am going to institute my own Gossip Girl Power Hour to replace the dearly departed OCPH. I am already loving Dan more than I ever loved Seth Cohen. Maybe that's not true. But I certainly am already loving S more than I ever loved Marisa or Summer. The brother/sister relationship? Blake Lively's smoky voice? TDF.
So if anyone wants to join me on Wednesdays for approximately 48 shots of beer that would be awesome.
Also: putting someone with Asperger's on Top Model? Semi-genius.

|claim to fame
T and I were watching some DVR'ed Ghost Hunters last night and they went to upstate NY and then I was like, "Hey! My road! The store! The beach!" So my road, the Robeson General Store, and the store beach were on Ghost Hunters. V. impressive.
The first two classes went well, sort of. Racism is going to be a good one (except for the fact that we're supposed to be a non-judgmental class but the teacher AGGRESSIVELY rolled her eyes when two of girls had us said we liked football), I think, but Research is going to kind of blow. Donner and T know my issues with people in class telling personal stories that are not at all relevant to learning. Like, a 10 minute long anecdote about your grandparents, wrapped up with, "I don't know exactly what I'm trying to say here/I haven't really formulated a question yet" (AKA "I just wanted to hear myself goddamn talk") is something that will put me THROUGH the ROOF.
So the Research class is full of non-degree students who are older, including one guy with crazy rolling eyes who reminds me of George O'Malley in speech pattern alone, who don't understand that the purpose of a course on research methods should be focused on research methods, not the research itself. When the professor brings in an article from the NY Times discussing the rising rates of bipolar diagnosis in adolescents, we should be discussing how they got that data, not how in your volunteer experience you treated a lot of children who were being prescribed Risperdal and Seroquel and it was bad blah blah blah.
Yes. I understand that's bad. But if you want to talk about your feelings about the misuse of adult anti-psychotic medications, please read the newspaper. You'll read the article the day it's published and be able to air your thoughts then, not at 7 p.m. when my blood sugar is dangerously low and I have been at Boston University for 12 hours.
Anyway. Bob's Southern Bistro tonight, Lauren Stewart this weekend, BC game on Saturday.
Happy birthday, Donner!

You endorse a lot of players on the ATP tour. This is why it is so mind-boggling that it seems as though you only offer one men's sleeveless outfit design. I think I saw 5 players wearing either the blue or yellow shirt along with either the black or grey shorts, and 4 of those 5 players were playing against each other. I'd like to see some more variety in the future.
Excellent, excellent, excellent
work on Santoro's polo. It was classy. It was colorful. It was striped. Andy Roddick's outfit needs a little work (although I realize he would probably never go for the jewel-toned polo), but I know you can pull it out.
Dear Ana Ivanovic,
You're hot. Even Dick Enberg thinks so. Your purple trapeze top and white tennis skirt were the highlight of women's fashion at the US Open for me. Great choices, especially in comparison to Venus's tennis skirt, under which I could see her labias majora and minora. You also don't wear annoying jewelry like the Williams sisters and Sharapova. I can't imagine that helps their game, and it looks trashy. Keep up the good work.
Dear James Blake,
Ugh. You are such an incredibly frustrating player to watch, but I just get such a good vibe from you, your family, and your fans, that it's impossible not to root for you. You give away your game tickets to your FANS. That's terrific. But if you could stop getting down on yourself and being bitchy, and instead be consistently awesome like I know you can be, I would really appreciate it. I am a known crier, but sports matches don't generally affect me. Yours today? I misted after you lost the tiebreak. I kind of misted when you had those 3 match points, and I also kind of misted when you won a point and you started jumping around a yelling "COME ON!" (like I said... crier). My neighbors probably think I have Tourette's because of all the clapping and screeching that happened during your match. And the sad thing is, I do believe that you can hear me, and every single other person who is sitting at home watching your match, shaking and sweating like a junkie in detox.
So come back. I know clay isn't your best surface, but I'm looking forward to the Australian.

|bet on it bet on it bet on it bet on it
Someday I'd like to see a crazy person with nice delusions. Instead of being called a "JEW!" under someone's breath or listening to a woman on the train rant about how she does NOT want to eat any more shepherd's pie, I'd like to hear a one-sided conversation about the lovely weather or how it's so nice that the train came on time today.

|he's still so hot
High School Musical 2 = Zac Efron playing rage golf. I laughed by myself thinking about someone walking by on the fairway and seeing a spray-tanned, heavily highlighted teenage boy wearing all black dancing angrily and singing answers to questions that were only asked in his head.
Despite all this I cried six times, especially during the breakup song. It's just the earnestness of it all. Please download "You Are the Music in Me".
