I popped the question!

I don't know where the concept came from, but someone somewhere at some point in time said that an engagement ring should roughly be one month's salary. I think it's way too much money to spend on a ring, but whatever. I just spent one month's salary on my school books for the semester. Going by that standard, does that mean that I'm engaged to school? Look for save the date cards in the mail.

I made a to-do list yesterday. Here it is:

the legacy of White supremacy
global warming
conflict diamonds

I canceled my iTunes subscription to The Colbert Report until the writer's strike is over. I figured if they're striking over online revenue, I might as well do my part and not give them any online revenue. This also includes watching on websites, so unfortunately I won't be watching at all.

Since I'm engaged (oooooh!) to my school work, I thought I should probably pick up some more hours at the library so I can afford that lovely dishwasher my beloved wants so badly. Not to mention the cost of the wedding! As I'll be living light and tight because of the new dishwasher and the wedding, it's just groceries and porn for me. No extra spending at all! I don't need the latest copy of Rolling Stone.

As my birthday is coming up soon, here are some suggestions for things you can get me:
Across The Universe (conveniently comes out the day before my birthday!)
The Keeper
A Cow
Money for Ireland

t minus 50 days until I go to Ireland and see Andrew
t minus ?? days until I see Mom

I call the Keeper!

(Seriously I'm getting her one. So don't.)

First I need your address so I can mail it to you.

So... this means Yale University as a whole is getting cut?

And btw, those birds make nice little snacks while I'm wandering about. So there.
