Current Music: They Might Be Giants - lazyhead and sleepybones
My mother was 19 when she met my dad; my dad, 22. I am 20 now.

Unbeknownst to virtually anyone who intends to marry late, women start having problems having babies at around age 35. (Ask Michelle; she's the biologist.) Not that I intend to marry early, but it's kind of scary how little time we actually have to bring forth the next phase of the human race.

From a recent email from my mother, regarding the new apartment they're saving up to move into: "...and the place we live is famous for hot spring spas. so when you retire, you can bring your family here for leisure."

I'm really sorry. I like this song so much that it deserves another entry.

Something I forgot to mention a few entries down: The original recording of "Jiao Da Wu Shuai Ge" opens with a nervous-sounding woman saying, in Chinese, to the sound of tuning instruments: "So, this song...I wrote this song one day when I wasn't feeling so good. And, uh, this song represents--it isn't representative of the entire campus, so...don't judge, just listen. And the lyrics...there are parts that are going to seriously offend some of you, so, um...just listen, don't judge. (to band) Start whenever you're ready."

If not for the fact that she's probably finished college already, she would so belong at Oberlin.

Okay. I couldn't resist. I translated it. It doesn't match the melody or the voice of the song, and it would be a bit of a stretch to sing. But you can get the gist of what it means.
