le petit prince: ce que je voulais

(no subject)

So Mum called me at 10:30 this morning. I remember this because I was still in bed but perfectly alert. I don't remember what was going through my mind, but I do remember that I was wishing that I could have the comfort of the bed with me all the time. Of course, this is impossible, for we never learn anything from such comfort, so I rolled out of bed and answered the phone when it rang.

It was Mum. This is my chance, I thought. She asked me how I was doing. I told her I was doing fine, which is, of course, the universal answer to "How are you?", but I really was doing fine--even fantastically--so why lie? Then I told her about the France trip.

"Well, you're going to have to start saving your money, aren't you?" she said.


I can make this happen.

(Which reminds me, I'll need a tag for this. I'll think of that later.)

T-shirts I want (a partial list)

There's a ridiculous number of t-shirts floating around the Internet that I want. One day when I'm, well, not broke, half my wardrobe will consist of silly or nerdy shirts, so why not start the list now?

QC: Math is Delicious! (girly medium)

XKCD: Stand Back--I'm going to try science! (girly medium)

XKCD: Just shy, not antisocial (girly medium)

Fussy: Writing well is the best revenge, The Original (girly medium)

ThinkGeek: Pi (girly medium)

ThinkGeek: Caffeine molecule (girly medium)

One Horse Shy: Bad Grammar makes me [sic] (small)

So there's the list (for now)--mostly for me, so I can keep track of these things. Want to help me with this mission? By all means, feel free! Just let me know if you want to get me one of these shirts for some occasion, and I'll let you know where to send it if you don't already know where.

Yes, I do need a hobby. Why do you ask?
