i mean, really, where can i begin here. okay. so. let's run with prague, because that's the last time you heard from me. prauge. was. amazing. just brimming with tourists, crawling with them. but i visited the city with nate and this woman rebecca, she's starting her doctorate on the relationship between kafka and the city. so she knew the city remarkably well, having studied it's history and living there for a semester. she is also (this may be only vaguely of worth to those of you in new york) the colomiust for the L magazine, that silly but quite good column in the back. so i was excited about that and we were both nostalgic for the city but we were surrounded by cobblestones and castles and tulips, immersed in city squares and dark cafes, so we were all swept away from our intense lives elsewhere. one particularly funny yet arguably vile story, we were locked out of our hostel room because our asshole roommates took the key with them and the desk didn't have an extra set. so after drinking like three beers and the bar trying to wait it out, we begged the desk kid to just let us into another room to sleep, so they moved us to a nice one with a balcony which we had all to our selves. and rebecca was in the bathroom brushing her teeth with water and her finger because all our things were locked in the other room. nate and i were on the balcony, i was smoking. and then, all of a sudden, a naked girl just walks right into our room. totally naked. and we know she is very drunk because we witnessed her downstairs making out with a frat boy she had met just then, and stumbling around. and she takes our stool, and sits on it, and takes our ikea wastepaper basket, the same one i have at home and here in berlin, and PEES IN IT. like it ain't no thing. keep in mind there were like 5 bathroom stalls on this floor. i have no idea. but we saw the whole thing becuase my money was on the table and i didn't trust her not to take it so we had to keep an eye on it. and so that was funny, but that poor girl.|
i have a tremendous amount of work to do and no focus. none. per usual , but even worse this time. my head is in a perpetual tizzy these days. but i am, in theory, writing a 20 page paper on the commodification of art in berlin. which is a good topic, but more worthy of a book than a harmless little essay. so i've got to narrow it down, but even that is hard. also, of note, is the fact that i am in two movies, becuase some kids are smart and making movies instead of writing papers for their projects. in movie one 1 portray a heavily made up, dramatically light, chain smoking, seductress who makes out with and subsequently kills tom in a crazy dream. objectification of women what? but i look damn hott, i must admit. in movie 2 i play a sweet girl named boris who has a giant birthmark the shape of berlin on her face. yep. i think i'm well on my way to being a career actress. for sure. then no more papers.
now joanna, rebecca, zsu, and kelly are supposed to be coming here tomorrow but i cannot get in touch with them, so i don't know how or when or if they are arriving. but hopefully i'll get to see them.
