sunshine been keeping me up for days

Elliott died a year ago today. Tuesday his new CD came out and Wednesday I bought it. It is very raw and vulnerable. Almost hurtful in a way. I can't believe I've only been listening to him since I found out he died. That's fucked up on numerous levels.

Tomorrow is Big Sister/Little Sister Day. I'm a big sister now, how odd; I'm getting so old.

I'm starting to feel ill. Marge said I look green. Thanks Marge, 17-year-old girls have no need for self-esteem. Silly psychologists.

I was working really well on my Medea paper, until I realized I had to get get Giby's present, then I stopped. And I haven't started again. It was going really well for about 45 pages though.

Give me a book/poem/anything literary to write my paper on. Leave lots of suggestions, and I'll consider every single one.

Do you realize it took me 15 minutes to write this post? That's retarded.

I could very possibly do that. I've never read it. I'd have fun.

Wow it's been a year? God.. I've been listening to him since Good Will Hunting. He's amazing. I'm so sad that he's gone.

What's your paper supposed to be about? Anything literary? I'd probably choose a Sylvia Plath poem, like Lady Lazarus maybe. Let me know a little more what you're looking for and i can give you a couple other suggestions if you need them.

Me too.

Paper's 2500 words (not inculuding direct quotes) of literary criticism on any work. I need at least 12 sources, so it has to be fairly popular. I've never read any Sylvia, and I'm sure she'd have tons fo lit crit, but I don't know if I'm up to it. My main ideas now are Crime and Punishment, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.

hmmm.. maybe Catcher in the Rye. Salinger is fairly popular, especially for English teachers so it might be interesting to look at the flaws as well as the strong points of his writings.

And i would love someone to write a paper on why Hemingway sucks. Because he does. lol

I wanted to do Cathcer in the Rye last year, but my teacher was kind of discouraging me from it. She doesn't seem to care for Salinger.

My teacher would love a paper on why papa sucks. She really doesn't care for him.

Plath might actually be a good idea...you read a bunch of her self towards the end of the year in Women in Lit. That might need checking with McBrinn, though...she seems a bit iffy with it.
