Things That Suck (as of 9/05/07  1/4/08)

  1. My heart got broken by the only man I have ever loved
    (While this still sucks, it sucks less.  In fact, it is in the process of being replaced by the inscrutability of men in general, since I’ve made the transition to thinking about new, different men.  Apparently, I have not learned my lesson.)
  2. The recent loss of the middle ground and its cousin the gray area (Yep, still sucks.)
  3. Language death (Again, still sucks.)
  4. The math section of the GREgre.jpg
    (It may still suck, but I know longer have to care.  Replacement sucky thing: waiting for a roomful of complete strangers to accept or reject you, thereby altering the direction of your life.)
  5. The fascination with bimbos and himbos
  6. The alarmingly speedy accrual of my student loans (Sucking at 6%)

And, just so you know I’m not totally negative…

  9. Going to art museums
  10. Spending a lazy afternoon with a good book
  11. Fresh laundry (not doing it, but it being done)
  12. The fact that I never have to take the math section of the GRE again!  (And that I scored above the 50th percentile.)
  13. Cheese (with a preference toward Wisconsin and French)
