wild

just another fix, can i weather this?

Awkward is: being hit on by random drunk girls while at work. And, on occasion, the not-so drunk girl. And that one straight guy. But. Well. He wasn't that straight, now was he?

I never know what to say. "Um, well, um, uh, um, nice to meet you? *shrinks away* *writes confused livejournal entries* *weeps*"

But yeah, on a completely unrelated subject, I have discovered a new, surprisingly delicious variation on an old classic. Food-wise, that is. Take a box of Kraft Mac & Cheese, cook it, add half a cup of peas, half a cup of corn, and a quarter cup of (hot!) salsa. Mix. Eat. Cry tears of delight. Worship my ingenuity.

I'm at the end of a three-day weekend (thank you, Martin Luther King Jr.!). I literally spent the entire weekend sitting around my apartment, reading trashy online fiction. Good times. I also officially decided what I'll be translating for my capstone: Muzhskie Igry by Aleksandra Marinina (Мужские Игры Александры Маринины). It's going well, except for the fact that I'm having trouble translating the freakin' title of the book. I'm thinking "Masculine Games". Does that sound good to anyone?


ALSO: if someone posts a prompt, I might just be willing to write a short story/vignette. So. Give me a name, a word, a phrase, whatever.
