about smartcookie

i write about what goes on in my life. i write about things i think are funny. i write nonsense. i write about bodily functions.

i have a boyfriend/husband named nathan who loves video games. we get along great. about 7% of the time. any percentage greater is purely a curious statistical anomaly.
aww i love nate!

and as our story progresses, you may wonder who i'm talking about.

aside from courageous nathan, our main characters include:
oh. and i teach dance and like accounting. the end.

first day of school!

first day of school passed uneventful. sweet mother of buffalo greeted us with typical b-lo* style weather, dreary, cold and mostly damp. we did miss out on the wind, although i don't think anyone was complaining.

the best part of my day, however, was upon returning to my lovely dorm when i saw this sign:
"BE COURTEOUS of others
when playing the PIANO."
the sign went on to remind piano users (pianists**) of quiet hours and other stupid dorm nonsense. i just found the whole sign amusing. i can't imagine this sign being found in any other dorm other then perhaps like a music college (Crane, Oberlin, Bard, Berklee, etc.) where i'm sure these sort of signs occur with a non-parallelled frequency. "NO SINGING IN THE SHOWER BEFORE 10am" "TUBA-ING PROHIBITED IN THIS LOUNGE" etc. but in buffalo? nah.

although i would like to thank whoever plays their saxophone one building over to only want to practice like twice a semester. although you might get better if you practiced more, i would prefer not to hear the process.

*whenever i type b-lo, i can't escape thinking of the other consenant-lo variations, the most obvious and most comprehensive being j-lo. a-lo is reminiscant of the UK when said aloud, and now that i think of it, not too many other consenants really mean a whole lot. in fact, x-lo is the only other one i sort of like because it's like all of these variations thrown together in a pornographic fashion. say, 'maid in manhattan' meets 'debbie does dallas' in a enjoyable british romp.."lopez does london"?
