out of it

sorry it's been a while. i was in mexico for four days, attending the most blown-out (fancy, decadent, over-the-top) wedding ever. while it was an interesting experience, i spent most of the weekend feeling stressed out and depressed, due to a combo of legitimate personal drama and my own inexplicable idiosyncratic weirdness.

now i'm back and still feeling a little depressed and unloved and antisocial. all i want to do is read the book i started over the weekend - The Name of the Rose, by umberto eco. it's kind of a thinking man's Da Vinci Code. it's both a page-turning mystery and a fascinating history of the early and medieval catholic church.

    thanks for the (quasi-)offer, but i feel unloved by the universe, not unloved in the romantic sense.

    "thanks for the (quasi-)offer, but i feel unloved by the universe, not unloved in the romantic sense."

    I'm not sure what you mean by unloved by the universe. But I guess I'm that too, as well as unloved in the romantic sense. Betas always lose.

    I'd love you but the universe told me not to.

    Probably the post holiday blues or perhaps its just what women do i.e. moan a lot!

    i read the name of the rose during 1L year and it took me soooo long that by the end i had forgotten all the little clues and whatnot from the beginning.

    tara - yeah, it's kind of hard to follow. i'm reading it pretty quickly, though, in part because i just skip right over all the latin. (mzd, don't hate me. :)

    I remember watching "Name of the Rose" on HBO as a kid. I only remember two things about it: Sean Connery was in it, and you see Christian Slater's butt as he humps a girl.

    Two thumbs up!
