"...under the influence of the preceding /t,d/ (progressive assimilation) the palatal approximant is replaced by a palato-alveolar fricative forming an affricate with /t,d/; hence the name coalescence."


Yay! Blok! (insert irony here) I've been cooped up (present perfect; state-up-to now) in my room for the past 4 days. =( I just threw (yes, just is compatible with simple past in AmE if it means "a few moments ago")a huge fit because my computer crashed.


I shall pass. (volition; strong determination)


Man, English grammar is killing me. (present progressive, implies limited duration and temporariness, action going on now) Rephrase: English grammar kills me. (present non-progressive: general truth, all-inclusive time)


Tomorrow: crime fiction! Finally an enjoyable course (no irony intended!) I get to cram into my (this is NOT a possessive pronoun, but a possessive determiner! HA! Since, it cannot replace an NP and thus cannot function as a PRO form) already overstuffed head (this might (possibility, tentative) not exactly be true).


It is naught o'clock. HAHA!

"I could fart you into oblivion right now!"


Haha =) funny...


Today was all right. Last night was bad, wasn't able to sleep. Fear of being a complete failure kept me awake. But don't let's talk about that!!!


It's been so cold lately. I feel like it's winter all over again. But I'm not feeling depressed now, which is definitely a good thing! I'm thinking about the last time I actually sat down and read a book. Whoa...it must be like a year or something since I last did that. That is odd. I love to read, but it seems to have become a task just to pick up a book and start. I mean I do all the reading assignments for school and stuff, but it's just not the same is it? Ah well...I am definitely doing that this Summer!!! A-ha!


I hate how they're starting to censor four-letter words on TMF now as well. I mean what the hell???? The song doesn't go "This ssss is bananas..." it's this SHIT is bananas!!! That's the song!!!! Those are the lyrics!!! Censoring won't help anything. I don't even know why it would be a good thing. Ah whateva..sorry..


Poirot's on tonight. I like him. A LOT.

I feel much better, rejuvenated even! Whoa!
Haha so today was nice =) Started off with me being late for English lit lecture (due to unforeseen rain/thunderstorm), but I was brave and just walked right in and sat myself down in the nearest available seat. Blah. Lecture itself was boring...pomo...all bout filling the void ya know. Well, actually it wasn't that boring.
Gap hour, which was mainly spent eating an apple and trying to figure out what I could do for show and tell (minus the show) in Spanish practice. I had NO inspiration whatsoever. I told Adinda she should translate next week's tv listings as she'd brought her Humo. And translate she did =)
So what did I do? I wrote a poem (with Adinda's help). Poetry is totally my thang! It is SO good (and as of now still untitled, but anyway). In fact, I liked it so much I have volunteered to read it next time! (I am so stupid)
Anyway, here goes (oh btw..I still have to perfect it):


No hay agua caliente
Tengo sed
Domingo
Sábado
Viernes
Jueves
Miércoles
Martes
Lunes
MIER-CO-LES
La muerte
Llame a un médico inmediatamente
Me he perdido
Es todo


So what do you think? I think it's extremely pomo. Allen Ginsberg, BEAT (haha I'm so witty!!)THAT!!!


just


kidding


It's an absolute turd of a poem. HAHA...Hey man...I was just trying to fill the void on my paper. Gaaaaah...


Peking Express tonight! I <3 Huckabees some time this week (anyone seen it?). Good good.

Mmmh...just sitting here...enjoying me mug of cappacappaccino. I'm looking at this http://www.campaignforrealbeauty.com/ because it's interesting. It's got me wondering why I'm insecure about my body/appearance sometimes. Okay, more like most of the time. Yet, I guess I, like many others, don't really have a reason to feel that way. Or do I? I love how some people are so confident about the way they look. They seem so relaxed. So at peace with themselves.
I wish that I could look at a magazine without permanently having to feel jealous of the models featured in them. I know I'm never going to look like a model. I'm not ever going to be 6 ft, extremely thin and just plain gorgeous. Then why do I feel this is a goal I have to achieve? What happened? When did I start thinking that way? When did Hollywood standards become our standards?


I am so sick of feeling insecure. I am so sick of endlessly comparing my body to others.


I would love to hear your opinion on this.

Whoa! A lot of people reacted to my posts! Excellent!(said in Miranda way . Well, you'd get that if you're a SATC addict) So very soon, I hope to be a little more fluent in Spanish and maybe pick up a little Welsh on the way? Ah well, you can never know enough languages, communication makes the world go round! Right? Of course right!
Well that's what I've learnt so far of this impossible book my crime fiction professor (yes that actually IS a class!) is making us read called "The Crying of Lot 49" by Thomas Pynchon. Has anyone actually read this? Would be interesting to know if there have been people in the same situation as I am. It was okay till they all started talking about the 2nd law of thermodynamics and entropy and about how there's entropy in communication and how normal people don't get this, because you have to be open to be a "sensitive" to get it (ie not a normal person, but someone who believes there IS another experience on a higher level). Okay I'm officially going to stop talking about this book.
I should really get started on reading something else. Beckett. Yup.
This entry is going to be weird. This weekend I went to a dance recital. It was okay, nothing special. My mum kept taking pictures of kids she doesn't even know. That sort of scares me. Anyway, the weekend was filled with realizations about how much parents can love their children. I mean really really love, like obsessive love. They adooore everything they do. It's weird, because I don't think I would ever be capable of doting on someone as much as some parents do on their kids. Or maybe I will be...in time? I think giving that much love to a creature would exhaust me. Okay, I feel really selfish right now. Maybe I'm not the "I love kids"-person yet. Ah well *sighs*
The new library opened on Sunday. Thank God! It looks a little weird, like a, well I can't really describe it, but it's weird, trust me. Okay, well, maybe I'll give it a shot. It looks like a factory. Or more like a storage place, a really huge storage place. It's filled with books, so what more could you want right? I can't wait to go!!!!! Gee I'm such a geek =)
I should go. So I am going.
*dashes off*

Esta redacción será totalmente en español porque hoy tengo ganas de escribir algo en español. No hablo o escribe muy bien, porque sólo he empezado a estudiar hace 6 meses, entonces me disculpo si hago muchas faltas. La sémana se ha pasado muy bien. Estoy más feliz ahora. Quizá me siento bien porque ahora hace muy buen tiempo y ¿quién podría estar deprimido cuando hace sol? Dejé todos mis sentimientos negativos, porque creo que deba ser más optimista y feliz. ¡La vida es muy, muy hermosa! Y quiero disfrutar de ella. Voy a acabar de aburrir vosotros. Voy a pensar en algo interesante que os podría contar. Hoy, he visto el final de "Gosford Park" que fue un poco extraño. Pero, a pesar de eso, estuvo una película muy bien y recomiendo que todos la vean. Después comí dos barquillos (no sé si es la palabra correcta...) con chocolate (haha...chocolate...). ¡Fue muy rico! Mmmh me gusta la comida. Es porque quiero irme a Latinoamérica, creo que la comida latinoamericano sea (o esté...¿hay alguién que sepa?) deliciosa. Pero, eso no es importante. Mañana iré a un espectáculo de baile. No quiero ir, pero mi mamá insistió que vayamos, entonces espero que no sea aburridísimo. Mmh..¿qué más? Creo que sea todo que hay de decir. Mmph, escribir en español no es fácil. Espero que no haya tantas faltas. Por favor, ¡ayúdeme! Si quieres, comente en español y corríjame mis faltas. ¡Sería estupendo!

So demain turned into about a week? Sorry about that, I know you've all been DYING for me to update this thing. Haha. Not really!
Not much has been going on, well not much you'd want to know about really. Erm, let me see. I got nice jeans. They're very 70s. And I had a blueberry muffin and some Twinings iced green tea and lemon, which is rawther good, at Foodmaker's. So far for my exciting life! I fear this is going to be a really sarcastic entry. Well, damnit, it CAN'T be! I'm going to be optimistic. For I have every reason to be happy, because:
*(you should ALL be happy for me because of this!) I got the 3rd season of SATC on dvd! I got it last Friday and I've already seen all the episodes about 3 times. I am SUCH an addict. I do declare.
*I got Vogue today!
*I had a LOT of chocolate today
BAD: chocolate is evil, because I think I might be allergic to it, or anyway, my skin is.
*I had fish, shrimpsauce, goatcheese AND greek yoghurt today! (not all at the same time!)
*I joined a Nigella community!
*I got 21/30 on my Spanish vocab exam and had not studied a lot for it, well at least not as much as some people. A lot of people failed as well, which is odd.
*I wore comfortable clothes today.
OH HAPPY DAY! For all of this YAY! I guess...


So my GP suddenly turned into a psychologist? Yes, apparently I had a traumatic experience and my body is restoring from that. Aha...yes...is that a nice way of saying I'm a pathetic person with no life, a depression and other impending mental issues? I have to go see him again next week, since I had a bloodtest done. I'm already dreading this.


Okay that was pretty random, sorry about that.


So guess what? I might be taking balletclasses next year! Isn't that great? I'm going to be all lissom and toned and balletdancer-like at age 20! I wanted to be a balletdancer, when I was little. I still do actually. It's never going to happen, but I think it'll be nice to enjoy that fine art with other ballerina wannabes once a week for an hour and a half. I'm also thinking about taking indian dance classes. I figure, I really enjoy the food, so why not the dancing?
