Self-deprecation is worth its weight in smoldering phoenix-ashes and baby unicorn tears.

More awesome Madrid!  You know you get bored by it.

After the Biblioteca Real, we separated - but as we were leaving, Carolina asked if I wanted to come to dinner with them.  I answered in the affirmative, and we exchanged mobile numbers.

Around 10pm my mobile rang, and I was off to meet them for dinner by the opera house.  (Gotta love Spain's version of dinnertime - 9pm at the earliest.)

I arrived just as they did, and as we ...

Another big, fat one.  Sorry, CB.  Hate me for it.  I dare ya.  Plus, I took a long time getting all the hyperlinks to (hopefully) work - each piece of art I mention should pop up in its own browser window/tab, depending on your settings.  So get to know some of the art I got to see.

A few weeks ago a friend in one of my classes told me about a trip that her class was going on to Madrid, and explained that the teacher had exte...

Howdy, y'all.  I've been in Madrid for the past week, so I'm a bit behind.  Like 20 hand-written pages behind.  And each article I post here is usually 2-3 pages.  So I've got a bunch, and I'm going to try to keep them shorter for Cedarbird's sake, since she loves to complain about how long-winded I get.  Whatever.

Another excerpt from my travel journal, and I think you'll like this one – the two of you who bother to stop by and read them at all lately . . .

(Hey Cedarbird - and BlueDev, too, if you ever stop by anymore - let's keep this to ourselves.  No need for the parents to know, if you know what I mean.)

that's all you ever do.

But you don't SAY anything.

Yeah, mostly I'm not actually leaving. I just love when people post those "Goodbye, JU" articles. They're funny.

They're especially funny because they inevitably come back.

I'm just waiting on you, Bakerstreet.


School starts this week. Already I've got too much homework to really be blogging right now. I've got 30 pages to go in Don Quijote, and still have an essay to write by t...

Heh heh heh.

That's all I want to say as I poke around JU today. I've finished my homework (I think) for the weekend, and here I am, sitting at the kitchen table in the new house, waiting for the plumber to fix the tub, and then it's off to work. (hi-ho.)
Once again, the Drama Dragon has reared its ugly head and there's just "so much emotion!"

Heh heh heh.

The drama can be fun, and I really don't care about this one one way or the other. MM and I have had our tiffs, but we generally...

I've been here at JU for almost a year now, but I didn't really start getting active until this last February. Of course, as many of you know, I go through spurts here, sometimes being very active, sometimes being really lazy. Sometimes I don't like to get involved with different things going on here, and other times I really do.

But if there's one thing that I'm always a fan of, without fail, it's hijacking a thread. There's nothing better than having a conversation with someone about not...
