So, when I got up today, I think I've been as shocked and worried as I've ever been. First, just hearing that the London subways had been bombed was shock enough. A split-second after hearing about it, though, I remembered that Olga is still in England and was possibly in London(although I checked her journal and, thankfully, she wasn't there today). And then, that Bethany is going to London, albeit in August, but still, stay safe bellichka because I definitely want to see you this fall in Wooster. My heart goes out to anyone who knew those who died or were injured in the bombing.

I felt that it was time for an update so here it is. I am home for the summer (again) and it's going fairly well so far. I'm working at Barnes and Noble still, but I'm also volunteering at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! It's just at the reception desk, but hey, it's a foot in the door at least. And at B&N, we're getting ready for the Harry Potter party on the 15th!!! I signed up to work it, too, which should prove to be interesting and hopefully fun. Of course, it could backfire and put me off having kids for the rest of my life; I shall have to wait and see. Oh, and an interesting development has occurred. A friend of mine from work, Erica, is setting me up with her cousin who is a firefighter. I'm not really sure what to expect but she said he's got a very sarcastic sense of humor, so I like him already. She also said that all three of us would just hang out as she doesn't want to put either of us in a blind date situation. More on that as news comes in.

I've also been doing a lot of reading this summer. The best books I've read so far are 'The Shadow of the Wind.' Everyone should go out and read it because it's superbly written!, 'The Egyptologist,' 'The Handmaid's Tale,' and 'The Things They Carried (holy cow, this was great!!). Movies have also been on my agenda, specifically Myster Science Theater 3000 movies. I now own volumes 1 and 2 of the series on DVD. Plus I have Freaks and Geeks on DVD (anyone else seen this? Was it not one of the best shows on TV?!) as well as the second season of Popular; I can't help it, I loved that show even if it was almost overly preachy at times. Oh, and the first season of Deadwood, which is an awesome televison show on HBO. I must say I love Timothy Olyphant. And I'm now the proud owner of 'The Machinist' starring my favorite actor, Christian Bale, although I haven't yet had time to watch the movie. That's about it in Dayna-land, I think. Bye for now!

P.S. Hi twinkie_goddess! Just wanted to let you know that bot Liz (music manager Liz) and Stephanie (receiving) have moved into the Portland area and I'm thinking about going out to visit them later this summer!

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.

In love, you feel the most alive when your lover is creative and never lets you feel bored.

You'd like to your lover to think you are optimistic and happy.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.

Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything... no secrets.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.

You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.

In this moment, you think of love as something you don't need. You just feel like flirting around and playing right now.

Sorry I haven't updated in a while, but I've become addicted to facebook. That and I've been working on my I.S. a lot. And I mean a lot. Go ahead, ask me about John Ford westerns that feature Indians. I dare you. Well, not really, but everything I've been reading for the last few weeks has had to do with his films or with him. By the way, The Searchers and She Wore a Yellow Ribbon are great movies. They actually stand the test of time.

In other news, I get a single next semester!! There were left over rooms from single room draw last night and as I had a good number, I was one of the people notified of this. All of which means that I don't have to go through room draw to get a single!!! Also, I've picked out the classes I want to take for next semester. With any luck I'll be taking Peoples and Cultures of Latin America, American Conservatism, Senior I.S., and Intro to Yoga (I need .25 credits). I'll also be a T.A. for Professor Roche's class, The American West! And I won't have any classes on Tuesday or Thursday!! Of course, that could turn out to be bad due to my general procastination, but I'm calling it a good thing.

Work goes on pretty much as usual. No one new has really come in, but there will be newbies soon, as we're hiring for the summer season. I hope they don't hire another Chanda. That girl does nothing. And you know someone's a bad worker when you find books hidden beneath the information desk upstairs. Sigh. I'm still trying to figure out why she hasn't been fired yet. Ow!! Okay, so that hurts my head. I'm going to go watch some Coupling.

Hello again all! Well, I've been back here for about 20 days (it seems like much longer let me assure you). I start up school again on the 17th (oh joy, oh rapture, oh shit) and I still don't know where I'm going to be living thanks to Wooster's crack residency team. They'll be getting a call from me on Monday. Anywho, not much has really been going on. Earlier this week tsilladwen had a get together at her house,which was a lot of fun as I actually got to see my friends again (although mithedhelwen and Bryan stopped by B&N to see me). Then, last night, I went out with Adam and Tim, two work people, to go see Jay (a former work person) and his band play at the Robin Hood in Kent. Anyone who likes hardcore metal should listen to these guys, they're good (they're called This New Dawn, btw)! We basically just hung out for the rest of the night, which was cool even if it was a bit loud in the bar. Then I dropped Tim off and another of his friend's apartment and I came back and went to bed. And all that before 1 a.m. Good gravy I'm getting old! Tonight, I'm just hanging out with mithedhelwen which will be cool. Well, that's about it. Now I'm off to read more of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell (a very good book, btw).
