Of madeleines and other French goodies

I saw Cache today, a very strange movie. Not really much to say about it, except that with every Daniel Auteil movie I see, I'm continually surprised with his acting talent. But it was a VERY strange movie. Also, Katie said she'd go with me to see that movie with Antonio Banderas and ballroom dancing. An irresistable combination I tell you.

I am, at current, quite loaded down my good things to eat, which is, of course, always a plus (most of the commas in that sentence have to be wrong). I have Honest Tea, Chai concentrate, popcorn, alfredo sauce, madeleines, unsalted bavarian pretzels (pretzels are the one thing I do not enjoy salt on, I'm strange that way), and of course, the crowning glory, MARMELADE. How exciting.

Did the enneagram with Flo and Colleen. Both Colleen and I were awarded the synopsis of "probably were abused as children" as the reason for our current personality. Er, okay? I'm a number 8 with strong 1 and 4 wings. Basically that means I'm a perfection seeking romantic asserter. So a romantic bitch? Sounds strangely right.

to whom it may concern . . .I have actually followed my writing deadlines. Which means Chapter two of Can't Put a Word to the Feeling will be up the minute that Colleen gets it back to me. lindas_muse, I adore you for being so fast.

So I was going through all my old notebooks and I found these quotes from Freshman year of high school that I had studiously written down. Most of them happened in Japanese or World History. Hah those were good days. Hey triaelf9, see if you remember any of this.
