A brief history of New Mexico:
NM: "Hey, Spain, can we choose our own governors?"
Spain: "No."
NM: "Hey, Mexico, can we choose our own governors?"
Mexico: "No."
NM: "Hey, US, can we be a state?"
USA: "No."
NM: "Hey, US, can we be a state?"
USA: "No."
NM: "Hey, US, can we be a state?"
USA: "No."
NM: "Hey, US, can we be a state?"
USA: "No."
NM: "Hey, US, can we be a state?"
USA: "No."
NM: "Hey, US, can we be a state?"
USA: "Well, maybe, we guess."
NM: "Yay!"
USA: "Oh, by the way, you brown people aren't allowed to vote or hold land anymore."
NM: "Wait, what?"
USA: "Also, we're going to build nuclear weapons here in 30 years."
NM: "..."

Poor, poor New Mexico. It is the redheaded stepchild of North America. I'm pretty sure it could succeed from the Union and no one would even notice.

I think my roommate is worried I'm a serial killer now.

I was pointlessly yammering on about my fantroll, even though she doesn't read or care about HS. But I wanted some input about what weapon my troll should use. The conversation went a bit like this:

Me: So yeah, I still have a lot of stuff I need to come up with for my troll, like a weapon. I want the weapon to have something to do with geology, but I'm not sure what to go with.
Her: Well, what kind of tools do geologists use? Like hammers and stuff, right? And don't you use acid for something?
Me: Yeah, we use hydrochloric acid to identify calcite in rocks. But the only way I could think to weaponize that is as a gun, which I don't like the sound of. And someone in the comic already uses a hammer.
Her: Well, then don't go with geology stuff. What kind of things do you like?
Me: Hmm. Well, I do love power tools.
Her: Oooh, give the troll an electric drill as a weapon!
Me: No, wait, I've got it! A cordless electric sander! Drills have been done, why not a sander? That would be awesome, she could, like... sand people's faces off.
Her: 8|
Me: Oh. Oh, wow. That was, uh. That was pretty dark.
Her: ...we're sleeping with the lights on for the rest of the semester.

Still going with the sander, though. Still need to come up with her title and planet.

I've been feeling just... off, lately. I've had some trouble sleeping, where I wake up at hour-intervals for the last 3 or 4 hours of sleep. I almost fell asleep standing up in the shower this morning (?!?) and I've been having problems staying awake in class, even though I find the subject matter interesting. I actually took a nap this afternoon, because I was just so freaking tired. I feel much more refreshed now, but I realized that I really, really didn't want to get out of bed when I woke up. I'm kind of wondering if I'm getting depressed, and haven't really noticed it. Because this is exactly what I do when I'm depressed, but I just haven't felt all that depressed lately. I dunno.

My roommate moved out at the end of last semester, and I wasn't assigned a new one. While I wasn't really close with my roomie, I at least had someone I could talk to when I got back from classes in the afternoon. Now I don't, and I feel really isolated.

Day 5: My favorite quote

"In every first novel the hero is the author as Christ or Faust." - Oscar Wilde (possibly)

I like it, because it's true.

This quote explains perfectly why I hate vampires anymore:

"Remember when vampires had huge mountaintop castles in the Balkans and mysterious magical carriages to carry them and their victims to and fro? Whereas now they apparently have to take the bus with the rest of the puds. Jeez, vampires are losers."

Thank you, Comics Curmudgeon archives for putting into words what I've been thinking since Twilight came out.

Dea chan: You're lucky. I wish both men and women were gay for me.
Amred: no you don't. it's hard keeping track of who wants in your pants after a while
Dea chan: doesnt everyone want in your pants?
Amred: ......i'm... not sure any more.

But really, so many people want in this asexual's pants. D:

Okay, I'm going out of town for the next two days to paint my grandpa's house. I would like posts in AegBalk when I get back, plzthnx.
