|Look out look out look out, Soul is BACK!
HELLO THERE!!! WHAT'S UP! So much has happened, and for once, so much has changed!!! And fucking hell it's going to get even crazier VERY soon. I graduate in fucking 6 months and then there's this whole huge gigantic WORLD that I need to like own and shit. I wonder what other people are going to do. I hope not own the world, cos that's my gig. Seriously. I'm pretty much looking forward to it. Cos I'm wicked cool now, let me tell you. Current Mood: AWESOME

Do not fuck with West London, seriously, do not fuck with West London. I find myself asking why they had to go and fuck with West London, even though I already know why. What a goddamn shit series of events. Now all the friendly bus drivers are suspicious and too busy worrying to be friendly. And now you can't cat-nap on the tube cos you're too busy eyeballing everybody. Where's Simon Reeve when you need him? When I need him? Sigh.
But. Being home was nice. I fulfilled many goals such as getting drunk at the mall, going to the beach a whole lot, buying alot of junk, eating alot of junk, and watching alot of junk! I take back all disparaging comments I may have made concerning Adult Swim in the past, I have come to realise that it is a worthwhile enterprise to say the LEAST.
Anyways. I need to go move again now, for the 38th time this year, ahhh. See you LATER. Current Mood: Emoticons fail me. Hahaha.

HELLO THERE! And a very happy Independence Day to you and yours! Oh how nice to be an independent woman, Vol. 1 style. And also to be an American! I pray that someday someone will give us our good name back, but for the time being, we'll just have to think of alternative glories to keep the pride. Like the shopping malls and Cadillacs and the right to enjoy such things while at the same time completely disapproving of the political system which makes them possible, the opportunity for change, slight as it may be! Have a happy 4th yo, and be careful with those firecrackers!!! Current Mood: PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!

|I came across time for you, Sarah
I would like to announce that IN ADDITION to today being Friday the 13th, it is also today and yesterday - Thursday the 12th and Friday the 13th of May are the VERY days that TERMINATOR takes place during! I wish I was good at math and things so I could work out how often this happens, though I have a feeling this is a once in a lifetime sort of affair! I am very happy to be alive today. Current Mood: HIGH ON LIFE!

|The land that I love
HELLO! I am happily and safely at home MA style, though the reasons for this unexpected visit leave much to be desired.. ie. an alive Grammy ): But you know. It's not nearly as tragic as I initially thought. First of all, she left just before she reached the state that so many other old people cling onto for so long so sadly, where they can't control their bodies or their minds - She was sharp, never dulled. Secondly, she knew how to make an exit - "Didn't we have fun?". Thirdly, my happiness at the thought of coming home shows how awesome of a job she did at making the best family ever. So, there are silver linings, but that's not to say I don't miss her, because there's no doubt she was the most awesome person ever and now she's gone, and that is always sad. But like the torch of so many similar figures, it will be picked up and carried on.
In other events, the summer of daytrips has begun. KICK ASS. I was hoping to officially begin it last night at the Hammersmith Apollo with the help of Hall and Oates, but alas, it wasn't meant to be. But that's okay. I'll find another way. For now though, there is an ant problem which needs my attending to! Peace out! Current Mood: grateful

|-> THE MAIN THING:
HELLO THERE! Ohohoho winter is OVER. It has been t-shirt weather for a solid half of a week, and the trend continues!!! The first day I went outside without my jacket was last Wednesday, the best day of my entire life. And all sorts of things have happened. There was the great cold of March 2005, that kind of sucked.. Spring break came and went and ruled. I have completely destroyed all of my academic ability, but that's OK. It's nice outside! I've been listening to alot of music that I never used to really like before, heavy metals and whatnot, so that's been enlightening. But mostly I've been in the park doing drugs and gossipping and eating fatty foods, and generally enjoying the available amenities. My goal for today, however, is to buy a new top and a gold ring to wear when I see a certain ex-boyfriend whom I fully intend to look HOTT in front of. We may go to the best exhibit ever which is currently on at the Serpentine.
SO. For the meantime, I'm going to go buy that super awesome stuff! Peace out! Current Mood: content

|Whilst it may have been amusing in 1895, now it's simply passe...
Hello there! What a funny few weeks. HAHAHAHA. So, apparently, the road to being blissfully single is paved with shit. That's just awesome. But no, it hasn't been so bad, don't you worry like I know you are. I've made out with ONE, ONE hot guy since my last entry. Slightly disinheartening but oh well, it's been hard getting this taste out of my mouth especially when I'm in a city where every tiny thing reminds me of him. Sometimes it all reminds me of how much I miss him, and sometimes it all reminds me of how much I never want to see him ever again. But the fact remains: I am moving to Los Angeles. Someday. Blah. Here is a list of what will get me, and any other rational young woman on the road to recovery:
1. A wide array of candy
2. Super awesome friends & family
4. Friendly shop owners and bus drivers
5. Looking HOT
6. Preoccupation with the Michael Jackson trial
7. GREEN DAY!
So yes, there it is. Lots of fun stuff to keep me busy. As to avoid shooting myself in the faceeeee. There are some things I thought I'd have to abandon in light of all this, but I am happy to say that I've retained many of them, including Mike Patton and condiments. Anyways. A-Life is coming in less than one week, wahoo!! It's going to be kick ass! Ah, I can't wait for spring break in general. I have had just about enough of all this school business. So I think I'm going to go not do some work now. Buh BYE. Current Mood: crazy

Oh I do wish this concoction had some sort of new page feature. As, it is a new page in the life of Elis L. Lambrusco indeed. FOR YOU SEE, I was dumped a couple of days ago. And it was all done with fuzzy logic, my new worst enemy. That's really what it all boils down to.. Besides of course, all this business of wallowing and slight misery. See, it really hurts because at the same time that I was thinking more than ever that this boy was someone who I'd like to spend the rest of my little life with, HE was thinking that it wasn't going to work out. And since both of these thought processes took place over a span of under one week, the week of our anniversary, out of a whole year, I blame it all on said FUZZY LOGIC. Anyways. I've got a whole lifetime of waiting for him to come back.
In the meantime.. I am going to make out with as many hot young men as I please. And it shall be very very enjoyable indeed. Also, I enjoy the prospect of finding a new Valentine. So, there are some up sides to this dumping thing after all. This includes my mom feeling so horribly bad about this mess that she bought me an iPod, hehe what the heck. So that's cool. As they say, today is the first day of the rest of your life!!! Current Mood: determined

|If you can hear me, throw up!!
HELLO THERE. Well I'm certainly feeling accomplished. Today I went to one room viewing, wrote one letter to a one SIMON REEVE of HOTSVILLE UK, did two assignments, and as always, carried myself in such a way as to say.. "I am wicked cool". Oh what a joke, I suck at life. But yes I did all those things. The place I saw today was super nice, the previous owners had disassembled a ship (!!!!!!) and furnished the flat with it, it is SO COOL. It's like sailing the seven seas.. of West Kensington! Dunno if I'll take it yet though. I'm a bit sad about moving though. Cos like, I didn't think I liked where I am now, but today I was all sentimental thinking about the sweet fights that go on outside the kitchen window, and the nice tiles.. Oh well. I just don't know what to do. In other events. School's okay so far this semester.. Thanks largely to Tuesdays and Thursdays which have officially been renamed super awesome day #1
because I have the best teacher ever for my Russian studies type class! He's so cool, he's so New Hampshirey and so grandfatherly you can just imagine him sitting on a porch telling a story to a small child about a large storm in the mid 40's, ahh I <3 him! DID YOU KNOW that Concord, NH is holding a bicentennial celebration THIS summer to celebrate the signing of the Ruso-Japanese War Treaty? Ohoho you best believe I'm going to check that shit out.
Blah blah blah I have nothing worthwhile to say. Current Mood: sleepy
|Friday, December 31st, 2004|
Well. 2004 has come to an end and I dunno what to make of 2005. It just sounds so.. foreign. Not here, not now. I think back on 2003 and it seems so nondescript, and 2004 I never really grasped, it's left an aftertaste of distinct randomness. I lost track somewhere around 2002 I think.. But. For the sake of rememberances, let’s recap what's happened for me in 2004, shall we? January was perhaps the most momentous of all the months in 2004. It was then that after being left alone in a small house in Hammersmith with two very crazy people that I resolved to better myself with the help of Mr. J. Timberlake live in concert and of myself of course. Much of this period was documented, and for that I am very thankful. On the Tuesday the 13th I somehow managed to convince one of the afore mentioned crazy people to actually leave the house and join me at the Lot, the fabled Lot, and on this very night I met my most favourite hot 16 year old in the whole world for the first time <3 On the 30th, I attended a Playaz Ball which was later shouted out on Radio Bruv as being "massive" and also led to the status of my relationship with the afore mentioned Laurence being upgraded to "going steady". All in all, January had jokes. February brought classes with it, all of which went well. Much was learned about language death and how it affects YOU. In March, Amanda and I journeyed to Leeds for Spring break where we bought the world's smelliest kebab and learned a very important lesson: Northern girls are HARDCORE. In April, Laurence and I had a fantastic weekend on the Isle of Wight where I power-vomited crab all over his parents' lovely bed, and we enjoyed a lovely nature walk whilst under the reigns of imitation psychadelic drugs. There were also many picnics in Hyde Park during this period, that shouldn't be overlooked. In May classes finally ended, after which I went home to attend my sister's hippie graduation in the freezing cold of western Massachusetts. The summer was A OK indeed. After long last, I met my nemesis: Canada. It was kick ass! Mayflowers and Spitfires, Kyle Broflovski tattoos, emergency rooms; it was the most fun trip ever. It made me feel like an adult in the most positive of ways I can imagine, which is weird cos I always thought that there was nothing positive about being an adult. How 'bout that? In August I returned to London and found a flat of my very own, yay Chaba and Horvath? Classes started and I had no friends but that was okay.. Because classes were very interesting. Laurence left for Bristol at the end of September, and I had lots of fun visiting him on his birthday, no longer was he a teen but oh how hot he remained. I guess I should say go Sox somewhere around here?? November started out a bit rough, a bad haircut and an even worse election result from home. And on the 7th, I was 21! As such, I got very drunk and pretended it was 1981.. Always a good time. Thanksgiving was awfully depressing.. A ham incident. Many papers were written in late November, I learned so much about desecularisation and SPSS and Hinduism and Protestantism and punk rock militarism. And then at long last, December arrived with a flurry of passport related issues that are yet to be resolved but OH WELL. My aunt and my cousins and sister came to visit and it went surprisingly well! And then.. I came home. And here I am. On the eve of the new year, hoping that it won't be as random as it seems now.
Well. That was mildly retarded. But I want to remember this year. It was pretty sweet. For now, I'm going to enjoy a lobster and champagne dinner and then.. sit around. What a way to start the new year :D
CONCLUSIONS: 2004 was pretty weird. Maybe 2005 will be too. I shall keep you posted. Current Mood: confused

|Justin Timberlake sends his love with the blessing from above, X-Mas time is here
HOHOHO, Holiday cheer to you and yours! Let's make this Yuletide the gayest Yuletide EVER. I've never been so glad to be home for Christmas, that is for sure. I'm going to go to the mall later and it's going to be FANTASTIC! And right now I'm going to go wrap some crap and it too shall be FANTASTIC! Hohoho. Santa Claus is hot.
And the bells were ringing out for Christmas Day!!! Current Mood: Holly jolly, very merry

|Neighbors who sing opera while I'm trying to nap are wicked cool
HELLO! HOW ARE YOU! I AM SHOUTING VERY LOUDLY FOR NO PARTICULAR REASON!!! But yes, what's going on out there? The longest week in history officially ended, so that was good. Although yesterday I was shot down 1945 style by the worst hangover in history. I ralphed twice, it was horrible. Now it's turned into a flu, so that's cool. Oh well. I did a pretty good job at cleaning up the mess that had piled up over the last 2 weeks, so now all I have to do is just be lazy and study for finals, which I'm thinking could be okay. I haven't changed out of my bathrobe for a solid 2 days now, ah fantastic! I'm super excited though cos they're having some horror movie festival thing and so I'm going to see the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre on Monday night, ahh it's gonna be so fucking scary on the big screen, I can't wait! Ahh!
So yeah. My aunt and my cousins and my sister are coming to visit me in T-MINUS SIX DAYS. Holy crap. What are we going to do? What are we going to eat? How will I will survive the collision of worlds? All this and more to come! BUT HEY. Know what's super exciting!? ALISON G. CRAIG is making her triumphant return to London in the Spring of 2005, YAY! It's gonna be so much fun! Cos like now I actually know how to do things, as opposed to her first visit. Tanky McTanksters gonna take to the streets! Ahh I can't wait.
What I really need to do though is to get some holiday cheer up in herre. Maybe I'll give Terminator a Santa hat to wear.. Maybe Mr. Monkey can wear a festive smock.. WHO KNOWS. The possibilities are endless. Endless. Current Mood: sick
|Thursday, December 2nd, 2004|
Can anybody confirm and/or disprove the theory that.. NOBODY WALKS IN L.A.? Also, does anybody remember 1998? 1998 was a really weird year. I was reflecting on it earlier and I felt.. really weird. Can't quite put my finger on it though. Another question: Does anybody have the latest on the whole Mars thing? I mean, that whole Lance thing.. Anyways. I went to see Dr. Strangelove at Riverside last night and I forgot how much it fucks with my head, but the fuckedness came rushing back.. and so now, my head is once again fucked. Yikes. Anyways. There is really no point to this transmission. I'm just bored and feel like procrastinating. Err, I ought to get to school for now though.
PS. I unearthed my treehouses book today, and it had been left in the fucking rain by people who I shan't name out of the decency of my heart. I AM NEW YORK PISSED. Current Mood: indescribable

|I am the on the menu, I am on the table, I am the knife, I am the waiter BANGBANGGBBGOFO&*D)£F>NS@JL
Hello there! How are you? Today's been one of those days where you brush your teeth with face wash cos you just don't know what's going on. But I am okay.. I am okay because of one thing (Exaggeration Newton, that's what they call me on the street), that one thing being that it's the WEEKEND! Yay. Viva la weekend. Especially this one. Even though I have three hundred AND eight essays to write and I'm a bit on the deathly ill side. I'm eating my favourite dinner ever but I can't taste it, it's the stuff tragedies are made of. I must have horrible breath. I made a new formula, though, for how big a geek one is. G = Number of times per week brussel sprouts are eaten X How awesome you think Mr. J. Timberlake is on a scale of 1 - 10. So, I'm going at a steady 70 here. Sweet. Making up formulas always makes me feel better. It's just so rainy out. It started today, the rain.. I predict it will stop sometime around the end of March, ballpark figure. Anyways. For quite some time now, I've suspected that I may have a virus on my computer.. and so yesterday I finally got to scanning for one. And guess, GUESS how many viruses I had on my computer? If ever there was a time to use the word whopping, now is the time.. I had a WHOPPING 5 viruses on my computer. Impressive, eh?
So. I'm going to Bristol this weekend, and that'll be good. Cos Laurence is hot. And I've missed him. He is my favourite vege-table. I'm gonna miss Calvin's 20th birthday party though, which kind of blows but I made him dinner last night and we had some Lambrusco for old time's sake and it was really nice.. And I can't imagine I'll be in much of a party mood by Saturday night if I keep feeling like this.. Not that I ever am in a party mood, but whatever. People are getting so old. And people are getting MARRIED. What the hell. Seriously, that is not cool. This girl in one of my classes got proposed to at the top of the fucking Eiffel Tower. And fucking stupid people who I was only ever friends with cos they had a pool are getting married.. What is going ON here! Next person who gets married.. gets a kick in the face.
I feel kinda queasy (Did you know that that's the word I got kicked out of the 4th grade spelling bee quarter finals for spelling wrong? Now you do.) Current Mood: busy

|A dried up twig on the family tree
Hi there, what's happening? WELL. I'm 21 now. And so the questions moves from why must I be so old? to what hot 17 year olds want me to hook them up over X-Mas break? Notice I've moved from 16 to 17 year olds, a model of maturity thank you very much. Anyways. It didn't really seem like a birthday, but it was the best day. Laurence came home and so that was good, especially since he gave me a Devo DVD and pumpkin seeds, yay :D The orignal plan was to go to an 80's club, on account of my vortex and all, but there aren't nearly as many as you may think there are, or should be, and so it was a bit of a compromise, the place we went to, but it was really fun either way! I think everybody had a good time.. I hope so anyways! And I had two roast dinners throughout the course of the day, oh man caloriefest04, that's what I'm talkin' bout!
In other events.. Sucks about the election. But I guess it's not too much of a surprise. Sucks just the same.. America is the greatest place on earth, and I was just so hoping that someone would drag us out of the mud and give us our good name back. The way things are though, I guess I can only hope that Bush doesn't keep on his course of isolation until we've got no friends.. no allies.. no power.. nothing to defend us from the ever increasing masses of people who have it out for us.. Don't know about you, but I think it's pretty scary shit. Hey though, how bout them Sox?
Ya can't win 'em all. Current Mood: sleepy

|Call the captain ashore, I want to go home
Well. I was fine first year. And I was even finer second year. But now.. It's happened. It's official: I am HOMESICK. I want to see some foliage and I want to eat pumpkin seeds that don't taste healthy and I want someone else to make dinner for me and I want to drive down route 27 and I want to go shopping at the mall and I want to talk to people who don't have their heads so far up their ass that to the untrained eye they appear to be placed firmly on their shoulders, I want to drink illegally and I want to watch City Lights City Streets.. Oh how I want to watch City Lights City Streets. Having said all that, I know that as soon as I did all those things I'd want to come back here. But for the time being I'm starting to hate this place from the skyscrapers down to the submarines. Why aren't there big city fires anymore? If just like 1/8 of the place could be taken down, I'd be happy.
So yeah. Started to make plans for after graduation. Gonna get a job somewhere warm.. Maybe Los Angeles. Maybe Nashville. For now though, I have to write an essay about fucking extraterrestrials. My regards to your MOM. Current Mood: nauseated

|The history of things to come
So much has happened.. So little has changed.. But the sum of it all? The only item worthy of reporting: TERMINATOR 4 IS A REALITY. And now, as luck would have it, we all have a reason to hang in there for another few years! Jolly good.

|MERRY CHRISTMAS, KYLE BROFLOVSKI!
Heeee-ay, how's things? Well. The time has come once again.. That time being me being so bored and so slightly tipsy that I feel like making a LIST! But not just any list.. A list of the 10 greatest things in the entire universe (according to me, so in other words, indisputable FACT). So, once again (this time with commentary!), in particular order, here is the revised list of the 10 greatest things in the entire universe:
10. E-Bay (Especially if your mom doesn't realize you're using her Pay Pal account to pay for everything)
9. London, England (To specify: Barnes, or anywhere along the 419 route for the matter)
8. Slim Jims (Although nacho flavored ones have sadly become elusive.. Was it all just a dream?)
7. David Bowie's "I Dig Everything" (Even though I haven't listened to it since about the time of my last top ten list)
6. Rhyming (Always a classic!)
5. Having a kickass boyfriend (Who'da thunk it!?)
4. Maritime related items (Low tide, pirates, anchors, palm trees, etc.)
3. Cadillacs (It's true, you don't know what you've got until it's gone and/or turned into a cube)
2. South Park (Not exactly sure which aspect of it though.. Maybe Casa Bonita, maybe City Work at Christmas time, or most likely the Kyle Broflovski tattoo)
1. THE TERMINATOR TRILOGY! Whoooooo! Air Five!
Well. That was fun :D The Hubble telescope and grandmothers still rock, I'm just a horrible person, that's all. What can ya do. As before, I'd love to see anyone else's top ten list, cos it's a very interesting affair indeed. But anyways. I am out of this place as of next Friday, mixed emotions for sure.. But it'll definitely be nice to be back in action. Any sort of action. Mad hustle and bustle though.. Gotta find a place to live. Ahh I can't wait to decorate :D I'll keep you posted. Current Mood: Listy/Bored/Meh

|P-H-E-W spells ME
Heeee-ay! What's up. Well, let me tell you. Things weren't so good, but now they are. I shall live alone in the fall, which at first was a horrible prospect what with my lack of networking skills and whatnot.. But don't worry, and ohoho I know you all were, it's gonna be okay. I think I've found a kick ass place and now I realise that there's really nothing stopping me from getting it, a relief indeed. Certain resentments have died down and I'm quite pleased about that too. Anyways. Let me tell you about a place called CANADA. Canada is a lovely nation. The rumours are true though.. it's not merely speculation.. they're all so NICE, it's crazy. People were just holding my hand left and right. My kind of place. At Niagara Falls we saw a man.. a man with a tattoo on his calf.. a tattoo of KYLE BROFLOVSKI! It was agreed that the tattoo was paramount to the falls themselves in grandeur. MIND BOGGLING.. I got it all on film though, hoho you better believe it. A beaut of a photo. This is why I need a scanner! People need to see this. Kingston, Ontario is a lovely town.. Lovlier than I ever imagined! We stayed on a SWEET boat turned bed & breakfast. It ruled. So.. 3 Kingstons down, how many to go? Also.. there are Cadillac taxi cabs in Canada, nuff said.
In other events, I get to watch Mystery Science Theatre 3000 for the first time in a long time tomorrow, yay :D For the time being, however, I miss Laurence.. So I'm gonna go to sleep and hope that I have a dream about him. Goood night! Current Mood: relieved
