I have a brownie in my bag.

Today was Foodways Day in my Folklore class. Yay! I brought in Pink Salad and some people even actually tasted it. I'm stuffed right now. It was great. People brought in all their most cherished foods. Spicy Indian things, things wrapped in grape leaves, things with names I can't pronounce, hot things, cold things, things that should have been alcoholic but were not, cruncy and gooey things, food of every description and sort. FUN! And people told stories about why the dish they brought in was important to them. And we ate. A lot. I wish I hadn't had breakfast so I could have eaten more. Yummy. As one of my fellow classmates said, I'm sneaking in for this day next semster. Yes.

songs in my mind

My theme song in high school was "Goodbye" by Gravity Kills. The lyrics "I don't need this poison / I don't need control / I don't need forgiveness / I don't need... YOU" really spoke to me at that time in my life. I was pissed at the world and didn't care who knew it. Hmmm.

I've mellowed. My current theme song is "Yesterday's Void" by My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult. "Maniac martyr / Out for the kill / Kult devil rider / Gettin' queer for a fix / Poison puppet / Lick the shit off my boot / Down with the boys / Yesterday's void / Gimme your strange drug / Asylum disciple / Lord of the wild! / Soul spinner thriller / Life's crash hungry child / You're a ghost of a man / Selling flesh to transcend" Um, yeah. No, really, I've mellowed. I'm not the angry person I was in high school anymore. I just like Thrill Kill Kult.

I am thinking about adopting "Cage" by Odor of Pears as my personal song. But it's kinda depressing. "And where else could I go? / This cage is all I know / I love my cage! / Please let me out..." Hmmm, no, I don't think so. Maybe some nonsense song by Laura Love or something in Japanese? Eh, nah. I think I've got a few years left on "Yesterday's Void."
