It was Tim's birthday a few days ago and we had a surprise party. And then we went to La Royalle. And Now I'm glad to be home, drinking water and updating my Twitter. What up.

I am a wee bit hesitant to be posting on a weekday, although maybe Thursday doesn't count. I mean, it counts for me because I have both work and a class tomorrow, but it's Thursday, so I think I'm allowed to have a few too many glasses of wine at dinner. I went over to Hannah and Victoria's apartment, which was adorable and very cozy and had a lot of adorable character, although I almost had a heart attack climbing up all those stairs. We had chicken and artichoke, with a killer salad and than yummy fruit for dessert, and I got a Mancrush t-shirt which I'm wearing right now and is really soft. Totally worth my last four dollars.
Last night I dreamt about Ryan Lochte. I thought maybe I was over that, but my subconscious is totally, definitely not.

Dear Happy Birthday Benihana Karaokee Drunk Night:
Don't stop believing.
Here's what I wanted to sing but they didn't have: 99 Problems, Since You Been Gone, Shoop by Salt N Pepa, Fancy by Reba Mcintire, Stronger by Kanye West. There was a lot of heartbreak tonight but I definitely had fun and am now good and drunk.
I don't believe in Pacing myself.

It's Thanksgiving and I'm a little bit drunk, hence the post. Since I forgot to post on my birthday, I'm making up for it now. Lots of apple cider, egg nog, and wine. And we still have wine left in the fridge! Oh, I'm sleepy. Must stay awake to update my lj. Happy Thanksgiving ya'll.

I very sorely miss the days when I was a lightweight and I was dancing on a table with a lightshade on my head after two beers. Now, it's like meh no matter how much I drink. Maybe I need to be more careful and make sure to skip dinner and then do a bunch of shots in like ten minutes time. Anyhow, tonight was very fun: Arvel was awesome at Desmond's Tavern, and the official afterparty was totally rocking with a great game of celebrities. Congrats to Team Fishbuttz for stealing Ryan away from Team Crabcakes and thus throwing the game.

LJ asked me if I wanted to restore a save entry and this is what came up:
Happy birthday KYLE! WHERE IS MY FUCKING WATER!!!!!!!!!
I do not remember writing that. Yikes. I'm drinking Gatorade right now, thank you, and Kyle just came by to shut my door or something. I don't know. I'm drunker than I thought I was. I went with Madelyn and Mike to this bar near her apartment called something about a Duck, and it was awesome and played a lot of Weezer, except it didn't have Blue Moon on tap. Boooooo. Those Pear Woodchucks really grew on me, and you know I'm a Jell-O shot pro by now (because I rock at Apples to Apples). I tried to make friends tonight but I think I scared people away. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Good night. I need to finish half my Gatorade so I can drink the other half tomorrow.

I failed to finish the power hour, and I feel that I've let down America. Sorry, Obama and McCain.
|Sunday, September 14th, 2008|
My habit is to post before going to sleep, but I worry that I'll sober up before that time comes, so I've snuck away for a few minutes to make a LJ post. I just ate a ton of crotons dipped in hummus, which was beyond amazing. Such a good idea, and big ups to Drew for enjoying it with me. And thumbs down to Kyle for trying to steal my last three hot wings. What a douche. I guess I should go finish my never ending beer

|Murdery Mystery Part
I've decided I want to bring back drunk LJ posting for senior year. I did it when I was a freshman and it was pretty fun, so it should be more fun when I'm 21, right? Right? The highlights of tonight were me getting all stressed out over cooking but then everyone being really nice and telling me it was delicious, even though some of the chicken was dark purple, and then too much fondue for a normal person's stomach. And so, so much wine. It has been a very, very long time since I've had that much wine. I purposely didn't imbibe in much alcohol (except when Danielle and I went to that bar) when I was at home, in hopes of lowering my tolerance and being a lightweight when I got back to New York. And I'd say it worked!
Also, who likes my new icon?
Idelle was the killer in the murder mystery party, which I'd way was a success despite a lot of interrupting and people yelling at each other. Yay!
I can't believe that this is it for summer. Boo.

OH MY GOD I've been waiting forever for the opportunity to do some drunk posting. And although I'm drunk pretty often, I never seem to remember to click on Ye Olde Livejournal and write down some ramblings. So, here we go: this was a pretty good night. I'd like to thank Emily for letting us watch the music video to Total Eclipse of the Heart not once, but twice; and Alex for reading us that Tucker Carlson story about butt sex outloud, like a true gentleman, and to Ryan, Kyle, Tim and Dan for playing musical coats with me on the walk home. Oh yeah, and the one-song dance party to Ted Leo was pretty awesome too.
I'm debating either watching last night's Grey's Anatomy, reading a 30 Rock recap, or going to bed. I'm not very sleepy, but I don't know if I'm sober enough to focus my eyes on my computer screen for extended periods of time. Even this blog looks pretty blurry right now. Ahaaaaaaaaaaa.

I ran home just so I could write something before I sobered up. Ok, not really, but I did walk home pretty fast because it was so cold, and then the guard pressed a special button to let me go through the turnstile without swiping since a) he's so nice, and maybe b) he could tell I was drunk. But I can still remember my birthday, thank you.
Fun night. Many thanks to Alex and Noah for hosting a lovely party and letting me come. I think I learned a lot about economics tonight, or maybe I just learned a lot about smiling and nodding. Not sure. Happy spring break, woohoo!
You know, we never got hot wings. Tragedy. That cookie was pretty good, though.
Oh, I have a recitation at 11 tomorrow? And I need to do laundry since I haven't done it in three weeks which much be some kind of record especially considering how ridiculously full my closet is of things I don't want to wear and also I bought a dress that I don't really like but can't return since it was on clearance? Oh, is that right? I guess I better go to bed.
But for the record: no puking! Yay!

Oh, New Year's. I was a little bummed I didn't find time to sneak away and make a drunken livejournal post, but you'll have to trust me when I saw that I was drunkity drunk drunk drunk. The whole night (and morning after) inspired me to make this my big New Year's Resolution: No throwing up from too much alcohol in 2007! Especially on my 21st birthday, which is coming up alarmingly fast (ok, it's like 10 months away). I hope everyone had a happy New Year's too!

You thought that just because I live in a different dorm that I'd stop my tradition of updating while drunk? Well you fucking though wrong.
Ok, so I'm not that drunk at the moment, and yes, I don't believe I updated last time. But still. I'm back, and still a bit of a lush (yeah, i just typed that as 'rush' and thought, "wait, that doesn't sound right!" which means I've sobered up a bit).
So what's new in my life? Well, over the summer I listend to "Don't Stop Beliving" about a billion times since it was always on the radio, and then I got really sick of it, but I guess I'm back to loving it because I danced both times they played it at the bar tonight. Did you know this was my first time drinking in a bar? Seriously! Cheers to the Sly Fox and its awesome back entrence, and to everyone who took my money and went to the bar to get me a drink. I live in total fear of getting carded, since I'm like the only NYU student without a fake ID. And the older I get the less willing I am to pay for one, and I feel like paying for one will only lead to me spending more money on drinks, and I ain't got no cash, and that's the long and short of it.
Hey, my birthday is in two months! Anyway, I hope everyone got home safe (man, I was so thrilled to only have to walk two blocks from the bar to my dorm... we should go there every weekend, yeah?) and that Alex didn't fall down. Yes, best wishes to everybody! And don't stop believing, yeah?

My summer in one breath:
Came home, went to Tucson to visit Steph at UofA, came back, went to Chicago for my cousin's wedding, came back, filled out some job applications, spent all of June sitting by the pool and reading, went to the Grand Canyon and rafted down the Colorado for a week, filled out a few more job applications and went on a few interviews, started going to the gym, went to see Danielle in San Clemente with Katherine and Danielle, came back, went to the gym some more, resigned myself to a summer of unemployment, went to upstate New York to see my Grandma and various other family members, saw my sister for the first time since January, wrote postcards, came back, fought with my sister, went to Anaheim with Alex and Mike to see Garrett, busted my knee on the beach, came back, continued to read, work out, and tan, started a Cold War with a friend, went to San Diego with the family, got a speeding ticket, came home, shopped, sent my sister back to Boston, realized I should probably start thinking about going to school, started packing... and that brings us up to today, Sunday. I'm taking a red eye Tuesday night and will get to New York on Wednesday morning; I am so effing excited to see everyone, set up my new dorm room, and check out the city. Oh yeah, and reestablish my wonderful habit of drunk blogging.

Two things I want to share: After putting in the request a month ago, the Phoenix Public Library finally came through for me, and I'm now in proud possession of Hugh Laurie's novel, The Gun Seller. I'm so excited to read it and fall even more in love with the man behind Dr. House (sidenote: Can you believe he didn't get nominated for an Emmy? Ridiculous!). And I love the little blurb on the back from Stephen Fry: "If you see someone howling with laughter on the subway, sobbing with joy in the street or exploding with delight on an airplane this year, it's because they're reading The Gun Seller." I think I need to use the phrase "exploding with delight" more often in everyday life.
The second thing is, I'm coming to California! I'll be in and around LA from the 19th (next Wednesday) to the 23rd (a Sunday), so if someone (and by someone, I mean Ryan, the only person who reads this) were to be in the area we could definitely make plans to meet up.
|Thursday, June 15th, 2006|
They announced what will be the extras on the season two DVDs of House, and one is called "It Could Be Lupus." Is that the most awesome thing you've ever heard or what? I hope it's just a long string of Foreman saying "It could be lupus!"
I'm getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow, which I'm both scared and excited for. Maybe if you're lucky I'll update when I'm stilll a little loopy from the pain meds; it's almost like being drunk, right?

Name ten of life's simple pleasures that you like most, then pick ten people to do the same. Try to be original and creative and not to use things that someone else has already used. (Note: I totally would have put ceiling fans and wireless internet if Emily hadn't done those first)
1. That hour between 11:30ish and 12:30ish when the sun is positioned so there aren't any shadows in the pool, and it's perfectly blue and sparkly.
2. When your dad borrows your car and you get to drive his fun/scary Jeep, and then he brings it back with a full tank of gas.
3. Tivo, baby!
4. When my friends decorate things for me, like CDs or cards or my white board. I think being so artistically-challenged made me that much more appreciative of other peoples artistic talents, and when they use their gift to give me a gift... it's like double prezzies!
5. Sitting on the couch in the common room and hearing the boy's door bang shut, then wait a few seconds and try and guess who's at our door by the sound of the knock, and then be right. Evan, Kyle, Ryan and Ariel each have a distinctive knock/way of walking in.
6. Getting magazines/Netflix in the mail, and also getting text messages. I was never one of those people who constantly texted their friends back and forth, so whenever my phone does the texting ring I get really excited.
7. Phxlib.org and the Mesquite library, because you can find the book you want online and put it on hold, then they call you when it's ready, and you go to the library and the book is on the "hold" shelf all wrapped up in white paper and rubber bands with your name on it, and you can check it out in three seconds. No waiting, no hassle, no pay: putting stuff on hold at the library is the only way to go. And also the library ladies are always really nice when I don't pay my library fees.
8. Driving really fast and aggresively on the freeway.
9. DVD extras, especially bloopers and outtakes.
Bonus one: Napping, or as I've decided to call it since I read Love in the Time of Cholera and don't care if it's pretentious, taking a siesta. Taking a siesta sounds a lot more exotic and refreshing, and a lot less lazy. Extra points if your siesta is in a hammock!

Updating your livejournal while drunk: party foul????
I'm really sad that I won't be able to go ten steps down the hall to sit on the boy's couch and say stupid things while drunk anymore. Dang. Sad times.
I am, however, glad I got to drink a little bit tonight, and not only because that bottle of vodka in the freezer ain't gonna drink itself. It's a good last hurrah before a summer of sobriety (possibly?).
To be remembered: One drink Julia likes literature and watching the Office.
Two drink Julia likes throwing things and shouting obscenities (but seriously, who doesn't know when Cinco da Mayo is?).
Five drink Julia likes throwing literature and... what's the other thing? Updating her livejournal, perhaps?
Goodnight, and goodluck.

I'm feeling kinda angsty tonight... but not drunk, I swear! I was hesitant to break my streak of drunken posts, but I needed to vent.
I have this thing where if someone says, "I'll call you (in ten minutes) (tomorrow) (sometime) (whatever)," and then they don't, I won't call them. I will wait by the phone and get really sad about it, and know that I can just press a button and get happy again by talking to that person... but I still won't do it, usually. It's just the principle of the thing; follow through on your promises because when you don't it makes me feel like I'm not important to you.
So really this only applies to Katherine and Danielle, two of my favorite people and winners of most likely to break my heart. Katherine is a flake; when she told me she was going to call me back when she got home, I almost said, "Ok, but make you sure you actually call me back because if you don't I'm going to be bummed." But then I didn't, because I wanted to believe the best of her instead of my instinct about how much she kind of sucks. And I have no idea about Danielle, because I know she can keep up with her demanding theater classes, doing Bible study and going to church 500 times a week, calling her mom every day, and occasionally talking to Mike, Garrett and Kath. I don't know why she can't make 5 minutes to call me, a half hour to get coffee with me, a night to hang out, anything, when I live two blocks away. I ran into her at Palladium two weeks ago, and she told me she wanted to hang out and would call me on Tuesday to plan something for Wednesday. I ran into her on Tuesday and she said she would call me on Wednesday. Nothing, and that's all the contact we've had since before spring break (unless you count internet journals, which I don't). I don't know... I read her Livejournal and every post centers about her church friends and how much she loves God, which is great for her, I'm happy that that makes her happy. But I wonder if her newly all-consuming faith is the reason we haven't spent any time together; maybe there's just no room for non-believers in her life anymore. And I guess I should respect that, no matter how sad it makes me and how much I miss her.
Anyway. On Thursday, May 5th there's going to be a screening of Directions, the collection of Death Cab for Cutie videos, at Marquee Theater hosted by Will Arnett (Gob from Arrdev) and John Krasinski (Jim from The Office)! I really really really want to go, and it is pretty much my goal for the next week to figure out how. Yes, I am a casual Death Cab fan at best, but Jim is like my number one TV crush at the moment.
Victoria and Hannah just came in super-high; Victoria is the absolute funniest person ever when she's high, followed closely by Hannah. Hearing Victoria ramble about all the drawings she has to do had made my mood 200% better. Next year Linnea is not going to come home and cheer me up after getting high with the boys down the hall... unless Linnea changes a LOT over the summer. One good thing about living with Hannah is that no matter what totally stupid thing I do, she's never going to judge or look down on me because she's done something a lot worse. I could give examples, but I think I won't for both our sakes.
EDIT: Aw, I just got a Facebook message from Katherine saying she's sorry she didn't call me back, she feels really bad, she'll call this weekend, she "won't pull a Danielle." Now I kind of feel bad about saying bad things about her, but hey, we'll both forgive and forget.
