Angst

Posted 25 June 2007

My Spanish professor has insisted that everyone have a webpage, but since I don't cotton to running multiple sites, I just linked to here. That stunt came up during a break in Friday's class, and I explained that I've been running a blog since aught four (thus trumping Empty Bookshelf Reviews and their hoity-toity subtitle).

The guy seated next to me finally asked:

Him : "Livejournal?"
Me : "What kind of ship do you think I'm running here? Livejournal is for fanfic: "Will Mac and Harm kiss? Find out in my 3-paragraph short-form JAG fanfic!" No. I don't play the Livejournal game, and not Xanga either. Xanga is for"
Him : "Angst."
Me : "angsty teens, exactly."

It was with delicious... sigh... irony , then, that Friday's blog entry in Spanish was filled with angst. Nonetheless, I hope to continue last week's hot streak; excepting Friday's entry, I haven't felt so inspired since summer 2004!

P.S. @K. Dubs: My judo grip on the English language fails me above. Is there anything similar to an ellipsis to indicate that a speaker has been cut off mid-sentence? I dislike the formatting above.
