this is me

you have no idea what you're getting yourself into

I'm tired and kind of frustrated and unhappy. We (re)learned comparatives in Russian today, and they're fairly easy, so that's pretty nice. Um, I went running this morning, which was probably kind of dumb, because I'd only gotten three hours of sleep. No wonder I'm so tired.

On a more upbeat note, today I talked music with Jeremiah, a guy in my class. We have very similar tastes in music, with just enough differences to make the talk worth it. I mean, seriously, he knows about Milla Jovovich's first album - how much more obscure can you get? On the other hand, I did manage to introduce him to the wonders of post-rock and Calexico, whereas he got me into the Cinematic Orchestra and Nina Simone. Still don't like Neutral Milk Hotel, Nick Cave, or Leonard Cohen, though.

This evening I went to Borders, where I got a Nina Simone best of album and Mirrormask. Both were on sale. I was debating Y tu mama tambien, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga by Spoon, and a best of album by Steely Dan, but I needed to set a limit somewhere. Obviously you should never set me loose in a bookstore. Christ.
