intertribal: (book of black valentines)

I'm going to DC for the weekend to search for housing in person.  And I haven't really been able to think about much else other than housing, so I hope I find something over the weekend so I can stop worrying about it.  I feel slightly like I'm going on one of those America's Next Top Model frantic go-sees, where the models have to scurry around an unknown city trying to make various appointments within four hours or whatever.  Sadly neither DC's streets nor its metro system make any goddamn intuitive sense (compared to New York's).  So looking at the bus maps I'm like "hoooow does this fit what I see on Google Maps...?"  And then I realize I have to turn the map 100 degrees.  Regardless, I will be in the far NW of the city, basically on the DC side of Bethesda. 

As my title indicates, my other obsession right now is Twin Peaks.  I'm showing it to my mom.  Basically I can't imagine a more perfect television show for me. 

I'm not really depressed - I mean, I even feel less anxious than I was earlier in July - I'm just kind of in that tense, awkward limbo between my life in Lincoln and my future unknown life in DC/grad school.  I just tell myself this is a "new adventure," to be all open and chill about it - remind myself of the mindset that I had when I went on my internship in Indonesia during college, because that was actually one of the happiest recent times of my life.  Basically, I'm trying to channel Agent Cooper. 

My friend Lucia is getting me this for my birthday.  Hooray, dinosaurs.

I was recently told that I was more fun than someone thought I would be.  That's nice, right?  Then again, this person was also amazed that girls like horror movies.

Let's take a minute to contemplate the deft phrasing of the person who told you you were more fun than he thought you'd be.


There's a person who needs to work on his people skills.

Good luck w/the apartment hunt. I hope the place you find is surprisingly nice.

In his defense, English isn't his first language. But yeah.

Thanks - it's going to be mostly a room-in-a-house hunt, actually. So I'm going to be paying a lot of attention to the roommate vibes.

Good luck with the house/room hunting. I couldn't imagine having to pick up stakes and move several states in any given direction. Even if I were single; it was a chore traveling a thousand miles with the family a couple of years ago (friends in TX).

Keep holding onto your TP vibes and such. I think they will serve you well--like the Force, but only weirder. Or something. ;)

And, hey, re: horror movies--Now I can't watch a horror movie without thinking, "WWNB think of this one?" You are my inner horror movie critic. I, for one, am not amazed, but am greatful of your non-bloviating tack on the genre.

FTR, I sometimes get odd reactions from people when they discover I like helloutta romantic comedies. Big Time like 'em. So I kinda/maybe/perhaps get some of what's up with the gender stereotyping re: genres and genders (Hey, there's a blog entry title!).

Thanks, man. In a way I'm kind of used to moving at this point, but that doesn't mean I like it. The Force but weirder is exactly what I need.

I'm only recently, and sort of, kind of getting into romantic comedies. And only 90s ones, heh.

I am uncertain why leaving Nebraska would make anyone anxious. Perhaps you've been there too long. :P Also, if the people in D.C. are rotating maps by 100 degrees, rather than multiples of 90, they are truly a strange breed. ;)

Damn, I dunno what I'm getting you yet. And your birthday is all of like 4 days after I return! Well, if you want anything from Beijing, lemme know?

Heh, I think I probably have been in Nebraska too long. But the trip went well - I had more energy and enthusiasm than I've had in a long while. And I swear it's not a perfect 90 degrees!

I'm not really in need of anything in particular, but you do a good job of picking out cool things. I trust you :P
