Question: An Email Correspondence [Oct. 11th, 2006|10:11 pm]
Jennifer Noble
To: Max
From: Jennifer

Subject: Question
What can I do with 3 dozen limes?


His reply?

To: Jennifer
From: Max

Subject: Re:Question




When all else fails, delicious, delicious, tart limeade.

Paper cut tortures.

Various other inappropriate things.

Re-create the pinnacle of human art with a Shih Tzu.

Cheers and a half!

Now, this is why I miss Los Angeles.  My friends are completely barmy. All of them.

(And what a deal! 3 dozen limes for $1.25! The cashier at H-E-B loves me, so he knocked down the price for me. How could I refuse?)

Soon-to-be-librarian [Oct. 2nd, 2006|09:10 pm]

I just got my letter today! I was accepted to the University of Texas School of Information for the Spring semester. I haven't stopped grinning since opening up the mail.

This means I get to move to Austin! And it means I'm not a total failure at life. After a year on pause, I'm excited to jumpstart my academic future. I've been devouring UT's orientation material, and I can't wait until I have a real student ID again! (I'm still mad that I lost my USCard during my last week of being a student.)

I'm just over the moon.

The weather has been amazing the last couple of days. The mornings are sunny, around 70. The breeze has hints of sea salt mixed with the humidity... and there's a cold edge to the wind. I walk outside with the dogs, and I feel refreshed. It's a welcome change from the oppressive summer heat of the past three months. Knowing Houston's meteorological trends, I'm sure that will return. But I needed a respite.

Z and I have a date on Saturday to detail his car for NOPI. Why am I so excited about learning how to claybar? I'm starved for knowledge, I guess. I never thought I'd miss going to class.

Criteria for my next dog:

1. Must not like to chew up my underwear.
2. Should not go crazy trying to hump new people who enter the house.
3. No obsessive licking of people's feet.
4. Be big enough to jump into the car without forcing me to pick him up. (Also, must not try to bite me when being picked up.)
5. Allows my dad to sneeze without growling at him.
6. Does not lick the carpet.
7. Enjoys (or at least tolerates) being rubbed down with a towel without attacking the aforementioned towel.
8. Walks well. (AKA, being dragged around the block is not a likely scenario.)

I swear, I love my little Shih Tzu fluff balls. But they're high maintainence brats. When I move to Austin, the first thing I'm going to do after finding an apartment is to adopt a greyhound. A laidback, sleepy, female.

What a wreck. [Apr. 25th, 2006|05:56 am]
Jennifer Noble
Today was a shitty day.

I was driving down Los Feliz when someone in a Tahoe made a left turn into me. My car has over $5,000 worth of damage, and I don't know whether or not it's totaled. I was just frantic for two hours. The guy who hit me was really nice; he and his friends tried to move my car out of the street, but the axle is bent and the front tire was blown, so it wouldn't even budge. And did you know that cops in Los Angeles don't file accident reports? An officer made sure everyone had insurance information, and he was nice enough to stay with me while I waited for the tow truck. According to the collision center, it will be two weeks before they'll know the extent of the damage.

Needless to say, this puts a damper on my plans to move. My father is driving out right now, and I'll probably have to fly back out in a month to get my car if it's not deemed irreparable. I'm not leaving on Sunday, folks; I'm probably leaving on Thursday or Friday. I'm cutting the size of stuff I'm taking back to Texas in half.

Max was nice enough to take the subway to see me last night. I'm just bruised, sore, and devastated. I baby that car. I had just gotten a service and filled it up with a tank of gas. It didn't even have 30,000 miles and it was a 2002! And then BAM, everything gets turned upside down.

He hit me on my front driver's side tire. It's not too clear from this picture, but the entire front part of the car was shifted. The tire's pushed in about two inches.

My door was bent at the hinge, so I couldn't open it. I had to hop over my console to get out on the passenger's side.

THe tire popped and the rim's bent.

I still can't believe he just had minor damage to the front of the car. I suppose that's why one pays all that money for a huge gas-guzzling tank.

For Max [Mar. 27th, 2006|02:49 pm]

I really like the comics called, "Animals Have Problems, Too." It's written by a grad student at Sam Houston State University. And it's fabulous. I've read through the entire archive and I just want more!

When I saw this comic, I thought of Max. This is what he would be like if he were an otter.

Leaving Los Angeles [Mar. 22nd, 2006|08:33 pm]
Jennifer Noble
Okay, guys, it's finally here. I'm getting out of California and returning to Texas. Due to lack of success in the job department, my parents have conscripted me as the landscape designer of their bare backyard. My gardening career end as soon as I make my way to Austin. (knock on wood)

I'm leaving the last week of April.

So, I'd like to see as many of my friends as possible while I'm still here. Please give me a call. Let's have lunch. My days are free until 3.

So, when is Defamer going to copy the Gawker Stalker?

I've gotta admit, I love watching celebrities wander around New York. The best part? The nasty comments about how disheveled these people look. Now I want the Los Angeles experience! I'd like to be able to walk outside and laugh at Jake Gyllenhaal or something.

Kitchen travail. [Feb. 27th, 2006|11:31 am]
Jennifer Noble
In an effort to use all of my perishables before going home to Houston this weekend, I've been on a cooking frenzy. In the past week, I've made pesto, bolognaise, mushroom bisque, stir-fried noodles, curried pork loin, and roasted tomatoes and eggplant.

Right now, I'm working on a spicy vegetarian butternut squash and potato soup.

Yet somehow, I managed to go out for sushi on Friday with the boys. Nice.

Still waiting for call-backs. I have an interview next week with a non-profit. We'll see how this goes.

JJB has provided me with fabulous entertainment. Especially these two videos. Watch. I love them.

Learn to disco

Then dance away!

"I wanna love you tender... no one has to be a great pretender..."

BTW, I saw Brandon last night. We feasted on Zankou Chicken. Yay for former/future/ex-roommates and fellow sufferers of PIRC politics!
