Avoiding Angsty Vamps and Angry Werewolves by Drinking Bad Coffee and Eating Stale Pastries, or Why We Will Probably Die

By Kiki Keane and Rachel Womek

Well… this may or may not be a lengthy blog because we may or may not get dragged away (against our will) to watch angsty, sparkling vampires and angry, hormonal werewolves battling it out for seemingly the only vagina in town.

Until then we will write… something.

We are sitting in a bookstore eating stale pastries and drinking false macchiatos (real macchiatos are dry cappuccinos whereas false ones are layered lattes) and being forced to listen to Reba McEntire and Vince Gill. Kiki’s complaining because she hasn’t heard this much country “music” since she ran away from her country lovin’ town nearly 15 years ago… She say’s that Gaga lady would be preferable, although this comes from a girl who has the soul of an 80-year old woman. She’s kind of cantankerous that way. Rachel is trying to avoid attracting the attention of a less-than favorite relative who happens to be sitting just one table over. If he’s noticed her he hasn’t shown it…she is hoping for an outcome of zero uncomfortable conversation.

Earlier today Rachel got her piercing jewelry changed for only the second time since she’s gotten it. This was the first time changing the nose screw and it was not easy. First you have to pull it out straight and then twist and twist. Unfortunately the twisting produced discomfort and not being a masochist she opted to have the professional do it for her. Eventually she will have to do it herself, but not today. Her new jewelry is a black star.

I (Kiki) have been enjoying, or trying to enjoy, my last few days of freedom before entering the corporate world (thankfully it’s only for about seven months). I have spent my time watching Murder, She Wrote, Investigation Discovery and reading Hemingway and news articles via Here is what I have learned. 1) You can’t fool Jessica Fletcher 2) I kind of want to be her just because she’s so kick-ass 3) Anyone could kill you 4) You could die from a scratch, so we have to remember to bring Iodine or anti-bacterial ointment when we (finally) get to the Middle East/Africa 5) It will be near impossible for any non-state entity to get an atomic weapon 6) Anything is possible 7) Nations (fill in the blank) are not likely to launch into an atomic war 8) Anything is possible 9) I may have to change my reading material.

I (Rachel) wish I had time to watch T.V, between class, work, and chores I don’t have much time for that. Oh why does the temporal dimension only head the one way? Perhaps when the Big Crunch happens time can reverse and I can read backwards.

Looks like we may be heading out, although we fortunately seem to have missed our showing, such a pity. *sarcasm*

Shopping for my Nose

By Rachel Womek

I am trying to choose a few new nose studs. I am so indecisive. Most of the available choices seem superior to the tiny stud I have now, and yet I’ve been browsing for over an hour just to pick one cheap bit of jewelry. A bit sad. There are several styles and materials to choose from and being relatively new to the nose piercing scene (I’ve had it about two months) I am uncertain about the best choice. I do know that my nose requires a change of scenery.

I need to stop browsing soon. I have class quite early in the morning. I don’t think choosing body jewelry qualifies as a philosophical dilemma. Perhaps I can argue that the jewelry is illusory and only exists within my perception of it.

Well off to bed. Perhaps with a fresh perspective I will choose something a bit more classy than a ” Pink Blue Beach Ball” to ornament myself with.
