First day of "work" was... weird. My sort-of boss, Okie (yes, that is his name), asked me if I wanted to watch television. And paid for my food. What? Also, I miss my constant internet access. Apparently, we do not use it at work since we are just being awesome with ORACLE and taking down emergencies or whatever. A 9-hour work day with no fanforum? Yeesh.
I am so tired I could cry, but not really. Just on the inside. I don't think I've ever been this tired before. I'm so tired that I can barely even bring myself to care whether or not Serena hooks up with Carter. Actually, that's a lie. I could never stop caring about CaS. The true OTP. It needs to happen nao. It's the right thing to do, guys. Let go, jump in, it's so amazing here...
This whole staying-in-Perú-for-a-month thing? I didn't think it through properly. I'm way too lazy and antisocial for this situation. Plus, I am now constantly plagued by swine flu fears. I better not catch it, because knowing how loathe I am to take action, I would probably just die.
Perú itself, meanwhile, is just the way I remember it - which I love. There's too much change in this world; I'm glad some things stay the same. Oh, wait. Something is different. There is Starbucks. Fuck you, globalization. Fuck you forever. But, anyway, it's odd that my mother hates my aunt C, and yet this woman seems to understand me better than anyone. How is this possible? Aside from the very real possibility that my mother is a complete failure in every way, obviously. Sorry, Mom. I still love you.
I finished season 3 of Dexter, and I kind of wish I hadn't. Nothing else will ever be good enough now - I've been ruined forever. Currently, my 4 favorite ships are: Chuck/Blair (um...DUH), Hank/Karen (Californication), Don/Betty (Mad Men), and Dexter/Rita. In fact, I want to make a music video with all four ships. Anyone know where I can get non-GG clips? Or perhaps have a song suggestion that fits all four? I wanted to do "Damaged" by Plumb, except that I want it to be from the guys' POVs and that song references being a girl, so...
I am continuing my trek through Tess of the D'Urbervilles, and I just want to ask: Why is there so much RAPE? It's terrifying. I can't believe that people continue to debate the topic as if there was any way it wasn't rape. Someone in the book actually says, "A little more than persuading had to do wi' the coming o't." Do you know what that means, people? It means - wait for it - rape.
By the way, for those of you who have my number (including those of you named Reinaldo who suck and refuse to call me), you can call me. I just can't call you. Never fear, Tati is here on the other end of the line. I am here to listen to you, especially if listening involves you updating me on GG spoilers during my horrid internet-less hours (7:30 am to 4:30 pm, in case you're wondering). Just don't be alarmed if I call you "Dad" in order to throw people off my negligent-worker scent.
