despite nori's emailed warnings and invectives against women's magazines, i can't seem to help myself. i'm hooked. there were five thick ones left in our kitchen cabinet and i've pawed thru each now, page by page. not quite done with the last, a british cosmo. most likely i'd still be at the table if andrea hadn't called. dinner? ha ha, i'd already eaten (it involved the oven, which according to a new rating system still in development [for those of us whose kitchen skills are as well] was two points. another two because it involved more than one color. so did the pasta i made last nite. for no one else is pasta an achievement. well, for andrea, i guess, which is why we're friends. end note.)
we're meeting -- by which i mean The Group -- at 8 at dis. how grateful are we all that our hq is so centrally located. we meet there and spiral off in whatever direction please, in tonite's case to hear more jazz. tomorrow will be consumed from 9 a.m. to 5:30 with a nordic mythology field study, followed by a dinner party at mel's empty house and a drinking party at drea's dorm. called tour des chambres, each participant is responsible for providing drinks and a decorative theme for the hall as it parades through. sunday tentatively i have planned to see the georgia o'keefe exhibit at the lousiana, a modern art museum a train ride away. monday nite is the opera and tuesday nite is dinner at heather's. cooler than any of that, however, sapna left for paris this afternoon.
my first full week of classes behind me, i have the feeling time will start to move much more quickly. good thing or bad, i don't know. i think i'm growing more comfortable with the city. i've spoken at least once in each of my classes. for mythology i already handed in a paper (written over my lunch break today actually because i spent last nite swallowing emotional ipecac. that is to say, i read over the last couple months as recorded in my real space notebook and listening to the two mixes lana made me until i wept, and, feeling purified, could sleep.)
today's film was the french lieutenant's woman and i don't have time to go into it but see it if you get a chance. really interesting movie.
