succumbing to peer pressure

Ok what is up with the advertisements?! Seriously! These are perhaps the most phallic things I have ever seen....well, ok, I've seen more phallic things....but...right, moving right along. Maybe you're better at blocking out internet ads than I am, but alongside such websites as imdb and there's this ad, and it's always a vibrating banana thing with fruit falling off the top or a disturbing tube full of white stuff with a ginger bread man making a humping action at the top or the latest ones are dogs and pigs gyrating in a most disturbing fashion. So, yeah. Did they get the porn clip art package or what?

I am so tired of being more inspired by a damn tv show than I am by my own government. /sigh.

It's beginning to feel like those days back in Cleveland when I thought it would be brilliant to take a full course load and work and do the Footlighters thing, and even though they lived with me, Mark and Carrie would sometimes go a day or more without actually seeing me. But really, I can't complain. This weekend I played nearly as hard as I worked, and really, what more could a gal expect? I'm even ahead of my midterm study schedule for one of my classes, though I really shouldn't jinx myself by saying that as inevitably I will turn to my notes tomorrow and realize that I'm so lost I have twice the amount of preparing to do than I originally thought. But tonight things actually look hopeful and I'm somewhat less burned out than I've been in weeks, maybe months, and for some reason that seemed worth documenting.
