So, another Law and Order marathon was on USA, which means that I was glued to the TV for three hours. Will Arnett (GOB from Arrested Development) was one of the guest villains on Special Victims Unit, which made me immensely happy because GOB is love. Both times I have seen Arnett on television he had been playing a relative slimebag, though this time he was truly despicable (if you've seen the "NAMBLA" episode of SVU, you know what I mean; he was the travel agent). The last episode was of the Criminal Intent persuasion, which I honestly thought was going to be nowhere near as interesting as SVU (for those of you who do not know, SVU is reserved for the really twisted crimes, crimes of a sexual nature or crimes against children; you get the serial killers and psychopaths as villains, whereas in the other seasons the criminals usually have a more down-to-earth motive), but tonight they aired the "Theory of Everything" episode, which was, for lack of a better word, pure cool. The other episode was the "dolls" episode of SVU, which was also cool.

The pilgrimage to the University of Arizona went well. Pat drove the party-van to Tucson so we could go as a Nerd Herd, as it were. UA is making a lot of attractive offers and putting on all the bells and whistles for in-state students. The vast majority of the lectures were mind-numbingly boring, but I did get needed information. The College of Humanities is incredibly proud of their creative writing program, which is ranked tenth in the nation or something like that, but since I am not going to major in creative writing (I can teach myself, thankyoumuch) this is not a determining factor. I would love to take some classes if I do go to UA, though. I know I at least want a minor or a part of a double major in Japanese language; the other major (of three if I go truly insane) is up for debate. I was thinking biochemistry or microbiology, but after watching Law and Order: Special Victims Unit I always lean toward criminal psychology. Yes I know it's a delusion. All things considered, though, it sounds like UA is a pretty solid school. Problem: it's in Tucson.

In favor of the UA, they do have a Panda Express and two Dance Dance Revolution machines, which was bad for me since I had gotten a blister on the bottom of my foot playing DDR on Friday, and my addiction is such that I just can't say no even if it's not in my best interest to play three rounds on heavy. So, as of now that blister has gotten much worse, and the outside of my calf is sore since I was gimping around and landing badly on my ankle.

Rachel and her little friends went to Edgefest, and I'm about to go pick them up at Some Guy's house. Everybody Rachel knows lives by Saguaro. It’s rather convenient.

1. Reply with your name and I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll tell you what song/film reminds me of you.
3. I'll pick a flavour of jelly to wrestle with you in.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me.
5. I'll tell you my first memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal.

Half-days are glorious. I went to Chipotle with the Nerd Herd, visited Lizzy in the hospital and watched some quality daytime television (today's topic: bisexual male gigolos confess their night jobs to their wives), picked Rachel and her friend up from the mall, and I am planning on spending the rest of the afternoon working out, doing homework, and researching stuff for college. And looking for community service. For college.

I should just scrap this and go to Saguaro Continuation College to take advantage of Jeff's money laundering scheme. I could get a degree in something-computer-related and give up on excelling. And stuff.

And junk.

I'm pretty sure that if I go in-state I'm going to the University of Arizona in Tucson, so that at least narrows something down. Maybe that would be the best option until I decide in which direction I want to go. It's a top-tier school, the best for the money, and two hours from home. I can hit up UCLA and whatnot for post-grad.

Maybe when I take Rachel to her dance lesson this evening I will stop by Goodwill to attain some new pants, finally.
