i think it might take another week for me to become sexy... so for now, a survey I stole

as in, my plan for half the week being slobbish and half the week being productive just isn't working out, so, you know, it will be a while 'till I stop watching legally blonde and stuffing my face with celery (it's a weird comfort food of mine. celery is calming. no? nobody? i'm so lame)

1. What's your middle name?
Eliabeth. Yeah, I know, it's like my parents rtied to deny the fact that we're from vietnam and so gave me a posh english lady's name. tut.

haha that was hilarious! you're quite cheeky in this :) clearly you're feeling a bit better...

hopefully pops can get a grip on things long enough to say something...i guess i'd wait and see too, she may say something good, some amazing apology, i mean she better! since there is not good excuse for the shit she pulled on you, does sound like she is making progress though!

note- soda and/or pop is the american word for fizzy drink! but how is diet coke classic london!? it's soo american haha, w/e...cocoacolinization hehe

oh and we sort of have the word classic here...but i don't think we use it as frequently and i don't think it means as much here. so don't worry at least i'm not confused w/ brit slang, does american slang ever confuse you besides the word soda? lol
