Lists and More Lists

February 26, 2004

Because I have nothing better to write about this afternoon, I’m going to do one of those things that people do. Thanks to heidiann for it.


First job: After babysitting, my first actual job with a company was Burger King. I was the goddess of the drive-thru.

First screen name: Ladibug998. So lame that I am ashamed to type it here. I was in high school, people.

First pet: We had Reagan, a terrier mix, and Kitty, a cleverly-named white cat, before I was born.

First big trip: I think from Puerto Rico to Virginia when I was but a wee babe.

First concert: Like Heidi, it was New Kids on the Block. We were about a mile away from the stage at Fiddler’s Green in Colorado. I did not wear lace gloves, but I did scream like a complete idiot.

First CD: I don’t remember, but my first tape was Belinda Carlisle. Heaven is a place on earth, you know.


Last car ride: About an hour ago, back from our accidental 2-hour lunch at the brand-new Olive Garden in town. Yum.

Last movie watched: I think it was Bowling for Columbine, on DVD over the weekend.

Last food consumed: Soup, salad, and breadsticks.

Last time showered: 6:45 this morning, way later than I should have.

Last CD played: David Gray, A New Day at Midnight, in the car on the way to work.

Last ice cream eaten: Orange Dreamsicle, yesterday.

Last website visited: Weather Underground, because they are calling for snow.


Single or Taken: Single.

Sex: See above. Or, “girly as hell.”

Birthday: February 18, 1980. (how are these “now” questions?)

Sign: Aquarius.

Siblings: 3 younger sisters.

Hair color: Golden brown.

Eye color: Hazel.

Shoe size: 9 and a half.

Height: 5’4″. Yeah, I know, my feet are really honkin’ big for my height.


Wearing: Brown pants, a white tee shirt and a blue zip-up sweater I stole from Sammi.

Drinking: Water.

Thinking about: I have the hiccups. And a headache.

Listening to: The space heater under my desk.

Current Mood: Headachey and too full.

Okay. Some of that didn’t make sense. But it filled space, which is the point, right?

Two other listy things. The Netflix sitting on my DVD player waiting to be watched are:

  • Felicity: Season 1, Disc 3
  • Lost in Translation
  • Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde
  • Shut up, hipster readership. I felt girly at the time.

    The stuff I’m reading or waiting to read:

    • Currently: The Procrastinator’s Handbook
  • The Four Seasons, by Mary Alice Monroe. I got this book because it’s about four sisters, which always intrigues me since I’m one of four sisters, but I’m afraid it’s going to be bad. The author has a romance author-y name and I’m just not sure about it.
  • Bee Season, by Myla Goldberg. I heard about this from Madame Pierce and it piqued my interest immediately, since I’m all about the spelling bee these days.
  • The Fortress of Solitude, by Jonathan Lethen. Readers at Amazon keep complaining that it’s slow, so we’ll see how it goes.
  • Book recommendations are welcome.

      I like Leaglly Blonde one. Andyes your feet are bigger, but you know what. I don't know how you ladyz fit into those tiny shoes. Are you from PR orginally? I was confused when your trip was from and too.

    • 3. Lorie  |  January 11, 2005 at 11:32 pm

      I was born in PR, when my parents were both in the Navy and stationed at Roosevelt Roads. We moved to VA when I was a few months old.

      what? you're not gonna' run out and read “the fuck-up”? well, lost in translation is awesome. awesome. i said awesome.

    • 5. Hugo  |  January 11, 2005 at 11:32 pm

      Orange dreamsicles… oh happiness, happiness, happiness.

    • 6. Sandy  |  January 11, 2005 at 11:32 pm

      Hmph. The Bee Season. I'm never gonna read it because my niece auditioned for the part of Eliza in the movie and did not get it. Bastids.

    • 7. Ginny  |  January 11, 2005 at 11:32 pm

      You should read Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory McGuire. I let you when I'm done… and maybe after mom :).

    • 8. ~A  |  January 11, 2005 at 11:32 pm

      none of this makes any sense.

      Read “The English Patient”.


    • 9. Lorie  |  January 11, 2005 at 11:32 pm

      I had to read The English Patient in college and nearly died of boredom. I even wrote a paper about that stupid book.

    • 10. ~A  |  January 11, 2005 at 11:32 pm

      ha ha.

      Have you checked out the film, “Spellbound”?

      I mean, you being all into the spelling bee these days. I liked it.

      /has never read The English Patient. Thinks you should write a paper on Legally Blonde2: Red, White, and Blonde. and while you're at it, do an ethnographic study of the city Felicity lives in as it is portrayed on the show and through its characters. Contrast those figures against strives made by the real communities who live in the living

    • 11. Lorie  |  January 11, 2005 at 11:32 pm

      I watched Spellbound a couple of weekends ago and liked it a lot. Also, everyone knows that college is like a weirdo little space station all its own, no matter what city it's in.

    • 12. mike  |  January 11, 2005 at 11:32 pm

      you must buy the latest yeah yeah yeahs album. it is rocking my underwear inside out. it will rock yours, too. even if you're not wearing any.

    • 13. cos  |  January 11, 2005 at 11:32 pm

      well since you're one for the handbooks, peep “the hipster's handbook.” i got my hands on “sexy jobs in the city” as well, hey lorie, it's pink!


    • 14. Gwen  |  January 11, 2005 at 11:32 pm

      Check out The Red Tent. Great book. Also, Middlesex was a recent good read.
