Frenetic blurbs today ... I'm rushing around trying to get things done, trying to put out fires, and it's making me a little frazzled.

마음이 급해!

It's an appropriate phrase for how I am currently feeling. It translates literally to "my mind is in a rush." When my 마음이 급해, I talk faster, I walk faster, I eat faster, I have no patience. That's me, right now. Hence this totally crap post, written in small pieces over several hours.

● I need a drink.

● I need a night of sleep, uninterrupted by dreams about work and/or death.

● I saw some work from Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland." It's going to be great. Can't wait to see it! Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter is just perfect.

Tendinitis. It's hurting me. Every time I write or type or open a can of soda or or type brush my teeth or TYPE, it hurts. Ow ow ow ow ow.

● I had literally forgotten what it feels like to have a crush on a boy. Now I remember.

● Something reminded me of "10 Things I Hate About You," the movie that made me love Heath Ledger and hate Larisa Oleynik. I don't remember what triggered the memory (because I'm getting old and my brain is slowly dying), but I love how recognizable Shakespeare's original characters are, in a movie that had an obviously low budget.

I hate the way you talk to me,
and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car,
I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots
and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick,
it even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you’re always right,
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh,
even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it when you’re not around,
and the fact that you didn’t call.
But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you,
not even close,
not even a little bit,
not even at all.
