four days ago i met elif batuman at an event held by livraria cultura and she was as likable as i expected reading her book (and her twitter). tangentially, i just realized i don't know what's the best translation for the word simpática - nice and pleasant don't really cut it. not even likable, not really.

on yet another completely different note, i'm very happy that petra is now a two-times wimbledon champ and the whole "even bartoli made it to two finals~" shit is finally over. :)

my mother's impulsive move to buenos aires left me in charge of handling some of her business and it's absolutely killing me.

you see, my mother's the sort of person who takes no shit from anyone ever, she's just like this big personality loud person. imposing. whereas i'm a fucking doormat, hopelessly, noticeably so. i am incapable of dealing with things the way she does and i'm making a m e s s.

i'd go through a personality altering program so willingly were it available to me. mine's just not good for anything useful at all.

i barely remember aladdin.

i was old enough to watch it in theaters when it came out here. 20 or so minutes into the movie, my mother stands up, telling me she needs to go the bathroom. something that seems like hooooours go by and she doesn't come back, i freak out, go out looking for her.

she was at the theater's cafeteria. she didn't need a potty break, she was bored to death and needed coffee.

this is a woman who at around the same time thought it was totally appropriate to sit me to watch raise the red lantern and the ballad of narayama on VHS with her. i had barely started primary school.

this is a post about my mother moving to buenos aires sort of kinda maybe for good and how i think i'm going to miss her a little. she's a unique lady.

it's only 3 hours away, but y'know.
