I'M LAURA
I'M LAME
I WHINE A LOT AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT THINGS ARE
I HAVE TO SHOWER EVERY DAY BECAUSE I'M MADE OF LAME-BOARD!

I don't know. I've been dreaming about stars a lot. I'm not sure what that means. Maybe it's because I've started working at Starbucks? I don't know.

What are you kids dreaming about?

It's a pretty good spot. The blacktop stays warm for a while after the sun sets. And laying under the stars is infinitely more interesting with bad eyes like mine, eyes that make shooting stars and constellations where there's only chaos. You can lay so that you can see nothing but the sky above you, and if you're listening to the right song, you feel like you're falling into the darkness. Anyway I've christened it now, so I suppose it's mine.

Look, that beam came from space. You don't own space, so stop acting like you do.

We were in Boston Market today and this middle-aged guy was behind me, a youngish, cute, sincere looking girl. So I order macaroni and cheese, as a child does. Then he orders it. So what does fucking Boston Market do? They serve him up some nice mac 'n' cheese, the man BEHIND me, and then tell me they're all out.
Vendetta. Vendetta on their souls!

Also I am more hardcore then you because I got bloody playing Capture the Flag.

This is the first post I've written in maybe weeks. I don't know why. Stuff's been going on. I moved, stuff like that. These poetic phrases keep running through my head, but sometimes I just wonder, why should I post that kind of stuff on livejournal? I hate those people. So I don't know.

How was your day?

but at least I have my ticket to NINTENDO FUSION OF GLORY

I registered for my new school today...I had to sign up for my classes and somehow I have to triple up on histories because I have to take naother world history course plus a government course...but I managed to haggle with my guidance counsellor (scariest fake smile ever) and now, in exchange for taking AP Lit, I get to take those two courses on the regular level. Apparently here, non-AP classes actually mean classes for idiots and thugs. So I should be all right. I'm also taking AP Psych, and an art class, where she assures me I can just fool around and make what I want. That shoudl be amazing, if it's true. What a miserable meeting though. I was pretty much in tears the whole time because she was throwing me all these requirements rules they had and kept vetoing classes I wanted to take and kept telling me if I wanted to go to college I had to take this class and I was just screaming inside. I don't want to take AP Lit...why does it need a class? ASL didn't need a class! Dammit I should've just taken it last year... What a FOOL I was. And now I have to do the summer assignments in a week and a half. Aaaaand the assignments suck.

Really I'm unhappy because none of my friends are calling me and when I call them they're not available, aka they're working or out with their friends and for some reason can't imagine that I'd like to come. I'm really lonely and I'm having withdrawal symptoms from my lack of human contact. Coming from having a boyfriend and a crew team to being alone with a family that doesn't hug is very strange.

And now I'm missing Jeremy more which sucks because I was over that and now because I'm alone all the time I start thinking about it more and I'm regretting that I missed out on a summer of fun. I'm sure I had my reasons, but after a while it's hard to remember them.

Hey guess what everyone, I totally made a really mature, grown-up decision tonight and I'm really proud of myself! It wasn't based on a song or anything, it was all me!

So as it's officially my last day in London. I'm kind of scared, I've grown sort of attached to this city in the last two weeks (it crept up on me...such bad timing). I spent tonight sitting on a rooftop with my wifey, drinking and eating marshmallows and chocolate cornflakes and having the sort of profound, philosophical conversations that evening rooftop excursions require. I got a little overwhelmed though, thinking it was coming to an end. But then it got cold, and the neighbor on the next roof was coughing up an organ, so we went inside and she made me special Guatemalan potatoes (hooo my god) while we watched Sex and the City.
So much better than the night I had planned.

So, in summation, potatoes and roofs are good.
Morning embassy visitors that require you to move from room to room looking for a place to curl into a ball and sleep are bad.

Thursdays are bad days...

I took Julia to Wagamama for lunch today and as warned, we ran into some kids from school...but it was nice to see the Emo Princess one last time. And I guess her floppy haired boyfriend, too.

As we were walking back into the building, she noted that there were a lot of people on the stairs making calls. I didn't think much of it, since there are always people waiting around out there. I came back into my office, and all the people were gathered into little groups talking...I got a little nervous, but I stood there waiting to be filled in and nothing happened and then they started talking about drinking and hen parties. I went about my business and while walking away from the copy machine, finally saw on TV that there've been more explosions, but like, really small ones. Like firecrackers, they said, but they're bomb detonators. And they've closed down a few Tube lines again.
Okay, not a huge deal, but you'd think they could've told me.
We watched the news in the boss's office, punctuating Tony Blair's press conference with talk about cricket, codenames and flurried arguments about the actresses in Top Gun.

What an ominous day. My dad and I got on the bus this morning, a bus that is usually packed and sweaty. Today we were the only ones on it. I got kind of creeped out, but there you go. Foreshadowing in reality.

BUT James is a soldier and so our plans to see Madagascar tonight are still on. HELLZ YES, TAKE THAT TERRORISTS I FEAR YOU NOT. Cuz you know, they might pop out of the flower bushes in that alley on the way to the theater.

It's really windy outside. I mention this only because there was just a huge gust of wind and it definitely sounded like a missile just flew by.

So Tuesday night we just ended up at Patton's eating cookies and watching The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants ha...well it wasn't so bad but I'm glad I didn't pay for it. Greece looks nice though but this girl totally lost her virginity on a beach and I kept thinking that that must have been uncomfortable. But it was nice to hang out with them even though I got home at least an hour later then I wanted to and was just so tired... I wake up ALL the time in the night to turn over, it's getting annoying. and I keep having harry potter dreams...or maybe they're not, I don't know. harry and draco are SO going to hook up though. It's crazy sexy tension. YES.
You know JK Rowling made 25 million pounds the NIGHT that that book came out?

Last night we went over to the mcallister's for dinner and had chinese food. It was nice, but they eat really politely and I wanted thirds but no one else got up and they would all eat one bite and then put down their forks and I wanted to cry because I'm always the first to finish eating. Damn this voracious appetite. China King is back on the list of food places to hit up the first couple of days in the land of the free...plus wendy's and 711. And Taco Bell because people say that's good.
