Um, not to be nitpicky... but... [Oct. 31st, 2006|06:39 pm]

[music |Sound of Music- Something Good]

I hate being edited by people who are dumber than me. Case in point, my cover story today in the school paper (not to toot my own horn or anything...). My original lead (I just checked it in the Word document that I sent to my editor) read as follows:
"Mention the Grove to any student at the University of Miami, and you’re sure to elicit tales of reckless debauchery on Thursday nights or the endless wait at The Cheesecake Factory."

Clearly my editor does not know what "elicit" means. So here's good old Dictionary.com to save the day:
e‧lic‧it  –verb (used with object) to draw or bring out or forth; educe; evoke: to elicit the truth; to elicit a response with a question.

She got "elicit" confused with "illicit."

il‧lic‧it  /–adjective 1. not legally permitted or authorized; unlicensed; unlawful.
2. disapproved of or not permitted for moral or ethical reasons.

But "illicit" wouldn't even fit in the sentence... Waiting in line at the Cheesecake Factory, while tiresome, is hardly ILLEGAL.

So in the paper, it reads, "Mention Coconut Grove to any student at the University of Miami, and you're sure to get elicit tales of reckless debauchery on Thursday nights or the endless wait at The Cheesecake Factory."

Let's just hope that in the real world, I'll work for smart people. Fingers crossed!

I kinda hate LiveJournal. It'd be nice if all the pages looked the same, so they wouldn't give me such a headache. Also, once upon a time I decided it'd be fun to mess around with my layout, and now I don't know how to change my friends page back so I can't read back entries. Stupid.

Why does music suck so bad these days? Someone please make an album that I'll rock out to!

Art people are pretentious. But the exhibit opening I went to tonight had DELICIOUS grapes!

Am I uber pretentious?

I haven't written since early June! So I didn't write ANYTHING about CTY. Well, CTY was good. GREAT because of Sara Cohen!

I'm back at school, and it's super hot. My apartment is nice. Liz drove down with me. It was grand! I am screwed in many ways though... like with the GRE. Someone please make me just STUDY for it. Uggghhh.

I'm graduating this December. Ok, that's about it!

[music |Jason Mraz- Sleeping to Dream]

I'm Yours by Jason Mraz

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
and now I'm trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I'll be giving it my bestest
Nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon its again my turn to win some or learn some

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love
Listen to the music of the moment maybe sing with me
A la peaceful melody
It's your God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love love

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and laughed
I guess what I'm saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

Well no no, well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment come and dance with me
A la one big family (2nd time: A la happy family)
It's your God-forsaken right to be loved love love love

I won't hesitate no more
Oh no more no more no more
It's your God-forsaken right to be loved, I'm sure
Theres no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

No I won't hesitate no more, no more
This cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours, I'm yours

Jude Law and a Semester Abroad

In twelve hours, I will be on a plane headed for DC.

It feels like I'm just hopping on yet another plane for yet another European adventure. The difference is, this time I'm leaving London for God knows how long instead of just a couple of days. I guess it still hasn't hit me yet.

Oh, perhaps I should mention that I'm exhausted right now, so I apologize for any forthcoming errors in spelling and grammar. And get this: of all the weekends for my flat's lift to break, I pressed the button this morning and the darn thing DIDN'T COME. SHOOT. ME. IN. THE. FACE! So Christina and I came up with a "brilliant plan" for me to keep my packed bags in her flat tonight because she lives on the ground floor, which means I singlehandedly dragged my gargantuan suitcases down FIVE FLIGHTS OF STAIRS. I live on the "fourth" floor, which in the UK (and I think the rest of Europe?) means the fifth floor because the ground floor is "zero". How silly! Anyway, my arms are shaking as I type. I could barely get my contacts out without gouging out my eyeballs! Let's just say I'm going to be hurting tomorrow.

And by the way, the subject line doesn't mean that I met Jude Law today. It's the title of a song that my AMAZING "SIS" LAURA PUT ON MY NEW FAVORITE CD. ;-) I LOVE YOU, LAURA!

Now what's something profound to say... I'll start off by telling you about my incredibly full last DAY in London. This morning, I woke up semi-early and met Christina and Nora to shop (for gifts) in Covent Garden. From there, we went to the gift shop of the Royal Opera House, then Nora left to go to the Christmas Carols Service at St. Paul's Cathedral while Christina and I hit up the gift shop at the National Gallery because I had to get a poster of this Monet painting of the Houses of Parliament and the Thames. (Is it bad that I'm beginning to amass this collection of artsy posters and photographs because I'm already planning my future home?) Then lunch at Pret (Lizzie, I thought of you!) and off to the Tate Britain because I STILL HADN'T GONE YET! We spent a number of hours there, which was fantastic. I really loved it. Then back to Mile End because by this time I had accumulated so much crap in my bags, I kept accidentally hitting myself in the face with my poster and it wasn't pretty. Then met up with Nora and her flatmate Kristen again to head to the Tate Modern, which was open until 10 tonight. We got off at St. Paul's, so I got to see it up close and personal in the moonlight. Now let me say one thing about the UK: they just don't know how to do Christmas trees. Their dinky little things look more like the wimpy tree in A Charlie Brown Christmas than the glorious monsters you see in the Capitol (which is now officially back to being a "Christmas" tree after those idiotic "War-On-Christmas" freaks made a big fuss) or Rockefeller Plaza. They sell these downright pathet ones at Sainsbury's for 20 POUNDS! That's like $40 for a twig. Bitch, please!

Aaaaanyway, we crossed the Millennium Bridge over the Thames, only to find the "Frost Fair", this little winter carnival! We happened to cross onto the South Bank as this huge crowd of Santas was singing! Then as we stepped off the bridge, these two guys dressed as angels with IMPRESSIVE wingspans zoomed by up the bridge on Segways! It was incredibly whimsical! Then the Santas (and other fair-goers) were sliding down this ICE SLIDE on inner tubes! It was hilarious! Then it was time to go inside and see the actual museum. :-) The Tate Modern itself was lovely; I've been there before. Unfortunately, the second floor was closed because they're rehanging things, so that was pretty much half of the collection that we couldn't see. Oh well. Something really interesting I saw today that now has new significance to me: I watched this short film based on Derek Walcott's Omeros, which I read part of for my Parallel Texts class this semester. It is a modern interpretation of Homer's Iliad that takes place in St. Lucia and centers around fishermen. You see, Omeros is Greek for "Homer". Fun, huh? Sort of like my whole take on the Iliad as a football game. Me and Walcott -- we know how to get it done. Now please forget that I even mentioned myself in the same sentence as Walcott because HE won a Nobel prize for literature... and my corpus consists of... a collection of crappy short stories for ENG404.

After the Tate Modern, I was ready to eat my left arm (and that's the one I write with!) so we dinnered it up at Pizza Express which took forever, but that was ok because there's nothing nicer than having a good meal with good people while you're sitting next to a plate glass window with a view of the North Bank of the Thames. Beautiful. We got one of the last trains back to Mile End and then I saw the lift STILL wasn't working... so I finished packing and dragged my bags down (hence, the shaky arms).

Aaaand now, I've been struck with a lightning bolt of brilliance (or maybe sleep-deprived delirium?): I will now sum up my semester abroad with a "soundtrack" of sorts.

1. All of Ben Lee's Awake is the New Sleep (Thank you, Caroline, wifey dear!) because I listened to that album pretty much all the time. "Begin" was pretty much my anthem... Being in a foreign country, being in a CITY, knowing that something amazing was about to BEGIN, waiting for a sign... just listen to the song and smile wistfully. Also, "Into The Dark" because well, that song puts a whole new urgency into your life when you know you have a limited amount of time, as I did here in London.

2. "From My Own True Love (Lost At Sea)" by The Decemberists. Ever since Ethan Tate told me that the new Decemberists CD was good, and then sent it to me, I've been in LOVE. Actually, that's a lie because I didn't get around to listening to it until this summer, but my GOD is it good. The first song that really touched my soul was "Eli, the Barrow Boy" when I was driving alone, because once I listened to the lyrics I realized how hauntingly touching it was. But "From My Own True Love" earns its place on the soundtrack because mail was my happy thought every day I opened my postbox to find something addressed to me! Thank you to everyone who sent me mail, you know who you are. Eric Sweigard, on the other hand... If we hadn't played so many rounds of Emotion Ball this summer, our friendship would be SO ov' because of your delinquency. I'm also letting it slide because you were so good about writing letters (AND decorating envelopes) in the early fall... so consider yourself spared from the Wrath of Hannah.

3. "Another Day" from the Rent soundtrack. I only got this song in mid-October, yet it has quickly found itself up in the ranks with such classics as "Born To Make You Happy" by Britney Spears and "If You Don't, Don't" by Jimmy Eat World, up in the Top 25 Most Played on iTunes. This song just makes me want to change my whole outlook on life and live in the moment and not overthink things and hestitate and all that rubbish I'm known for. Maybe I learned to live in the moment and be more spontaneous while I was here... I certainly did a lot of things for the first time, so you have to be at least a little proud of me. :-)

4. "Poses" by Rufus Wainwright, because if there's something Londoners know how to do, it's preserving greenery in a concrete jungle. The many parks of London with their thick, lush, vibrant grass can't even compare to the sparse blades between patches of dirt that try to survive in DC. You really don't find too many cities that take parks so seriously, but London doesn't mess around. No way.

5. "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" by Celine Dion, because I think this song is what brought me and Nora together. Oh, I guess I have to give Sweigard props for sending it to me. OK, so I'm a dork. And I don't even LIKE Celine. But... well... this song is hilarious and it has CASTANETS in it. It totally deserves a place on the "Scream-a-long!" playlist.

6. "Paper, Rock, Scissors" by JamisonParker. In my humble opinion, this is the only good song on their newest album, Sleepwalker, but some may beg to differ. I enjoy it because I feel like I spent a lot of time writing letters home. The Royal Mail probably got the most significant sector of my expenditures in London, but I had fun making people's days happy. Who DOESN'T love mail, especially mail that reads like it's been written by a kindergartener who suffers from ADD?

7. "We Danced Anyway" by Deanna Carter. I know I'm only "Southern" when I'm spouting "Virginia is for Lovers," but oh, country music, how I love thee. I think this one earns its place because it's about being in a foreign town and just loving who you're with and loving everything even if you don't understand your surroundings. Plus, I guess country music reaffirms my American-ness, which I definitely rediscovered. I think I was all like, "Ew, America!" when I left because of the current state of well, everything, but I never had a basis for comparison. Let me just tell you guys, I am so glad for all the things I DO have in the States. Which isn't to say that I haven't loved London... I'm just saying that now I know what to appreciate.

8. "Bruised" by Jack's Mannequin, because I felt this way when I was leaving DC this September, and I feel this way again as I'm preparing to leave London. And maybe I feel a little like this because I've been jet-setting so much. I just feel like Andrew McMahon paints a very vivid portrait of the traveling lifestyle... airports, waiting, sleeping, etc.

9. "Takeoffs and Landings" by The Ataris. This is one of two Ataris songs on here. On the flight back to London from Paris, Makeda asked me what I wanted to listen to... and of course I said So Long, Astoria because this album is 1. CHOCK FULL OF TEEN GIRL SQUAD GOODNESS and 2. This song always reminds me of flying. I ALWAYS think of it when I'm a runway, because when I look out the window and see those blazing blue lights, I without fail think of that line, "The runway lights are the deepest blue / Like the colors of your eyes / So close them tight and kiss me one more time," -- even though I can't think of any blue-eyed guys I've dated. Just saying I like that line.

10. "Looking Back On Today" by The Ataris. I have to say it, guys. There's just something inside of me that makes my heart sing when I hear really good Ataris songs. This one really reminds me of traveling across Europe... I thought of it a lot when I was thinking of my friends back home who weren't with me, because I wish I could share all these experiences. Traveling with Makeda has really been an amazing bonding experience, and I'd love to travel with all of my friends (separately... or in small groups) one day. I think my favorite part of this song is the fact that it mentions a lot of places I've been: England (obviously), Italy ("Italy isn't the same without you here."), Paris ("I wrote our names on the observation deck of the the Eiffel Tower" ;-) ), etc.

11. "We Both Go Down Together" by The Decemberists. This just came on my iTunes on shuffle, and oh my goodness, I SWEAT this song. The Cliffs of Moher in Ireland reminded me of what I imagine the Cliffs of Dover (in the song) must be like. I couldn't get this song out of my head when I was in Eire. I just think it's terribly romantic and tragic and heart-wrenching. Mmm... Colin Meloy is a big, nerdy weirdo, but the English major in him weaves these deep, powerful narratives in the such a short space and I love it!

12. "High" by James Blunt. I discovered James Blunt early on while I was in London, and then he started blowin' up! I remember sending this to my friends and telling them how good this song is. OK, so maybe James Blunt can't sing a song without whining, "Beeeaaaaaauuuutiful" but I like this song and it makes me happy. Especially when I heard it for the first time in public the first time I visited Topshop!

13. "Push the Button" by Sugababes. Sugababes suck, big time, and this song is no exception. But it's ubiquity in Europe makes it an inevitable addition to the playlist. They are so so so skankho and ugly. Which makes it appropriate that their new single is "Ugly". Hahaha. Sugababes. Ew.

14. "Trippin'" by Robbie Williams. The first time I heard this song, I thought it was the worst song ever. I still feel that way... but I have to confess that a little part of me thinks that it's SO bad, it's good. It grew on me! So sue me! The baby in the video is CREEPSTA LIKE WHOA, and Robbie Williams is one hairy man to say the least... and I don't even know what he's singing in that god-awful falsetto of his... but this song screams London to me.

15. "A Little Respect" by Erasure. Another track on My New Favorite CD from my fake sis Laura. This was featured in an episode of "Scrubs" and it's pretty much the best song ever written. It's so catchy... yet the lyrics are actually quite gloomy. That's the beauty of Erasure. They make melodrama palatable with an infectious little beat thrown in there with a healthy dose of synth. And that is one recipe that leads to one happy Hannah.

So there you have it. Maybe this list isn't that thorough... but now it's 2:21 am and I'm waking up in about 4 hours to begin my long trek to Heathrow (My flight is at NOON!). Woohooooooooo for meeting Makeda on the Westbound platform at Earl's Court at 8 am! (We're airporting together because her flight is at 11 and it's always better when you have a friend with you.) If you've made it this far in the email, you get a gold star because I know it's long. Thanks for being my willing readership this semester. The homeland support has been amazing since I've been here, and I love you guys for it. And that's a wrap.

Homeward-bound hugs,

a long overdue end-of-summer update [Aug. 18th, 2005|03:49 am]
[mood |tiredtired]
[music |ben lee- get gotten]

well, my summer isn't ending for another month or so, but everyone else's is.

a couple of big changes since my last update:

i broke up with willy right after CTY ended. if you want the full story, maybe i'll post it later. it just wasn't meant to be. we're going to be friends though, which is a great relief to me.

i went on an AWESOME road trip to the jersey shore with my CTY buddies (aka the best clique ever). it was relaxing and seriously eased the post-CTY separation trauma that i often experience.

my sister had her baby (did i already write about that?). i've finally seen it, and it's very small. i supposed i should refer to it as "he." HE is ethan lucas nasser (my sister foolishly gave it her boyfriend's name... tsk tsk!). he doesn't do anything except sleep and cry. he's cute though, i'll admit it.

my parents got a new car. it's a hyundai santa fe. WORST IDEA EVER! it's an SUV! have you SEEN the gas prices lately??? geez. way to go. NOT. to be fair, it's a nice car. oh well. good luck paying for the fuel, parentals!

that's about it. i leave for london september 16. to pass the time, i hope to work. i have been offered a job @ noodles and company, but i'm not sure how well i'll be paid now, because the manager whom i interviewed with is on vacation right now, so there are no real guarantees. with the soaring gas prices, i wonder if it's even worth it to trek my butt out to vienna to work... i don't know. opinions?

also, i want to see red eye this weekend. cillian murphy is HAWT!

oh, i saw wedding crashers twice. my favorite line is, "YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH WHEN YOU'RE TALKING TO ME!"

for your reading enjoyment... [Sep. 21st, 2004|10:14 pm]
i revised my horrendously typed hurricane sports bio (i didn't type it... they couldn't read my writing so everything is misspelled!) and updated it, too. here are some highlights:

1. Interests and hobbies outside of Rowing: reading, writing, politics, Tri-Pi, arts & crafts with my awesome roommate, and keeping in touch with my best friends, whom I affectionately call Teen Girl Squad

--shoutout to kyle

5. Who is your favorite athlete, Why? My favorite athlete is Willie Williams, because although he has faced a lot of negativity, he has a great outlook on life. His spirit and friendly nature are inspirational.
^that's a joke^

10. What is your best rowing memory? I really enjoyed training at the end of winter break in Miami. The team calls that time “double days.” It was a great learning opportunity, and the Brown men's crew team was down here, too! I relished the opportunity to get to know other athletes.
^wink wink^

trying to sound as corny as possible:
12. Any superstitions before regattas? I "pass a five back" -- starting from me, down to the other end of the boat, & back to me. I think it gets the whole boat pumped up!
13. What advice would you give young people? I would like to express my advice in the form of a quote from one of my favorite songs, “In This Diary,” by the Ataris: “Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up. These are the best days of our lives. The only thing that matters is just following your heart, and eventually, you'll finally get it right.”
14. What did you do this summer? I had the best summer ever working as an RA at the Lancaster site of Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth.
15. What are your goals at Miami both in sports and outside sports? I want to help Miami Rowing make a splash in the ACC. I hope to do this by improving my coxing as much as I can, while still maintaining a positive attitude. Caroline Stuart, one of the recent graduates of the team told me that I am personally responsible for keeping the team fun this year, and I take this very seriously. However, I have to remember that I am a STUDENT-athlete: the student part comes first!

i'm hooooooome!!! [Nov. 27th, 2003|10:38 am]
[mood |boredbored]
[music |nothing-- no sound on this GHETTO computer]


i don't like being back HOME HOME though. my room is not how i left it, i can't find anything i want to bring back (cept for my hooters beach towel... can you imagine that? going to miami without a BEACH TOWEL?!?!), my mom is freaking me out, i have random stranger relatives living in my (newly finished) basement, my older sister has taken over the bathroom so that it is all orange, but DIRTY AS FUCK so it is REPULSIVE, my little sister is still a horrid mess, the computers don't really work, and the house is filthy. and while i was trying to get online my mom had the audacity of saying that i should quit school after a year and come live at home. is she FUCKING INSANE?!?!?!!?!?!? i don't think i EVER want to come HOME again. just back to northern virginia to see my friends, really. i don't want to live in my room when i come home for winter break. yuck.

the trip home was fine. i made it to sanford nice and early and without a hitch (no traffic!) to the auto train station, i got my ticket, i got onto the train, and it was fine. it was annoying cuz i had some cantankerous koreans, a belligerent gay couple, and a family of OLD people (2 of whom i think were mildly retarded) on my car... SO LOUD. but at least i had my laptop AND an electrical outlet so i could listen to music to my heart's content! and i did a LITTLE TINY bit of work, which means i am SCREWED for the rest of the weekend but who gives a fuck cuz i'm BACK IN NORTHERN VA AND I LOOOOVE NORTHERN VA (just not home). the drive to miami shouldn't be bad, really. i think i def need to pack some goodies to eat, cuz i got a little hungry on the way to sanford!

ooh on the auto train, i had 2 seats to myself so i was like, SPRAWLED OUT. and they served us dinner, and breakfast, and cookies and showed us a movie (the in laws... pretty terrible). and they gave us complimentary wine @ dinner, but i didn't drink any. cuz i am good. yay for me. and i forgot toothpaste, so they gave me a little cute tube of rembrandt! how nice is that???

i think if i hadn't been alone, i could have a had a LOT of fun on the auto train.

i'm afraid to use the heater in my car cuz i've only been using the AC and remember how when kelly's roommate turned on the heat for the first time, something got very messed up?? poor kelly and her BITCHY roommates that she doesn't live with anymore (right?).

ok right now i am BORED OUT OF MY MIND so i may take a bath in my parent's tub and then try and do some work. call me people!!!!

[mood |in love]
[music |counting crows- perfect blue buildings]

you just made him up in first grade!

damn straight!!!

haha i'm TOTALLY crushing on 3 people.
and i only know one of their names.

1. cute mahoney boy who meghan and i overheard talking to some girls about how he was forced to see love actually. TOO CUTE. he looks like a little boy. light eyes, dark brown short hair that's kind of flipped up in the front, and tall and skinny but in a cute way.

2. cute boy from the football game on saturday. he has shaggy sandy dark blonde hair and tan skin and he's skinny and beautiful and wears t shirts and shorts and looks like an adorable surfer. friend of a friend of a friend. toooo cute. i've seen him EVERYWHERE in the past couple days.

3. the guy who fixed my internet today.

allow me to explain this one.

i haven't been able to go online from my laptop with my user id and password FOREVER. and so i started using sarah's user id, and then kyle's, and then finally it just wouldn't let me log on at all anymore. and so i got fed up and emailed the internet people here, and they gave me a number. and then today after about a week and a half i finally called, and i got this guy on the phone who told me to come in and get it checked out. so then i took my laptop in (i couldn't get into the office at first but then this nice older man let me in and showed me who to talk to and that was nice.
so the older man told me to see the only other person in the office, this younger, attractive guy who was fiddling around with a laptop. and he was beeeaaaautiful. he was tan and medium brown haired and had the normal boy haircut... you know, short and kind of spikyish in the front but not ugly and gelled or anything. and he was wearing a dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up to the elbows and he had an ACCENT (i have NO IDEA what kind of accent it was) and he was talkative and was listening to music that i like... i forget the first song he was listening to, but this song by rusted root, called "martyr" that was on this CD sarah beth eisinger made me freshman year came on and it made me happy. he asked me what year i was, what what school i was in, and if i was going home for thanksgiving and then asked where i was from and we had a conversation about gogo music (which i hate!) and he was telling me how his roommate was from DC and loved gogo. and he was so nice and fixed my computer and even made it so that i could go online with the wireless stuff, and his name was JADE (which is a girl's name, but we can pretend it's not). and when he was done, he was like, "if you have any more problems, go ahead and give me a call" and he gave me his business card, so i was like WHOA! he must be old! but i'm totally in looooooooove (not really). but he was WAY cute and WAY nice. i think he's kind of old though... but he's a STUDENT here, but i think he's a grad student. but he was SO cute.

haha i am such a loser. i looked him up on the "find people" site on the miami website, and he's a STUDENT indeed and he's studying computer information systems.
a cute guy who's smart enough to fix my computer and talkative AND nice AND made it so i can on the internet again?? could he BE any more perfect????

hahahahaha. i am a LOSER!

quick pre-weights update!!! [Nov. 21st, 2003|02:57 pm]
[mood |disappointeddisappointed]
[music |britney in my head!]

listened to the new britney cd "in the zone" last night... quite disturbed @ first. the first song is AWESOME!!! it's her new single, "me against the music" and it's awesome awesome awesome.
the 2nd track is "(i got that) boom boom" which is quite entertaining and i like it ok.
3. "showdown" is so slutty. but maybe fun after the 2nd time you hear it? but so slutty.
4. "breathe on me"... quite the terrible song. eurotrash trance techno that my sister would dance to. not the britney i know and love!!!!!!
5. "early mornin'" -- very slutty track. seems like track 5 is now "the slut track" as "boys" was quite the slutty (but AWESOME!) song on "britney".
6. "toxic" is pretty good, but it has this weird whiny instrument thing in the background which i haaaate. but it's like the neeeener neeeeener nee nee nee nrrr nrrrr in "if you want it to be good girl get yourself a bad boy"
7. "outrageous" is ok. meh.
hate it!!!!!!!
9. "the hook up" -- don't remember it anymore, but i'm sure it's terrible cuz some of the songs i totally hated.
10. "shadow" -- a ballad. britney, i can feel your soul of the music you didn't write!!! i think this nicely applies to justin. obviously she and justin should get back together cuz britney is WAY better than nasty crack-whore cameron diaz.
11. "brave new girl"... don't remember this one. maybe it sucked.
12. "everytime" -- so pretty and good and SO SAD!! again, another reason why she and justin should get back together!!!!!
13. "me against the music" rishi rich's desi kulcha remix -- AWESOME!!!!!!!

as a whole: fell flat of my bubblegum-britney-loving expectations. but after a 2nd listen, i liked it a lot more. very hyper-sexual... ms. spears needs to control self and get herself a man. and stop trying to be a modern-"erotica"-madonna cuz it just doesn't work. maybe britney needs to stop hanging out with madonna altogether cuz there is entirely too much techno on this cd. but i must say, i love madonna and i love britney, just not together. some seriously high quality songs on here. i would say my favorite is def track 1, and "everytime" is my 2nd favorite. so sad. brit + JT = LOVE!!!!

gotta go to weights now!
