i am up to my ballcap in information about d.c.'s homosexual male population from late 1920's to late 1940's...

i have written 8 solid pages, a solid introduction, a workable conclusion... now, in the morning, i'll incorporate a few more primary sources, consult chauncey and see if i need to add anything, dive into a dead gay white guy's journal and... hand in the first draft.

but, i did it. even though i have emailed my prof and my ass is technically covered, i still worked that same little ass off so that i could get it done for tomorrow. the rationale: i have a website project due by friday midnight that would overlap this paper quite stressfully if i didn't do some work now.

countdown 'til the end of the semester:

    1 webpage
    1 ENG paper
    final draft sex paper
    spanish oral project (cooking show!)
    afro-latino term paper
    afro-latino book project
    two short critical reading reviews about history of sex.

So, ABW weekend is looking like a wash for me... I've gotta work all weekend long and I'm gonna totally miss most of everything. *sigh*

That totally sucks. *pouting boy*

out of my league.
in this backyard of the new nationals
hot bed hot headed
hot hot hot damn
baseball hype
i know in my gut like day-old pasta
sitting heavier by the minute
that i am out of my league.
bench warmer
on a farm team
batting in the big leagues
kind of feeling
that's what i mean by out of my league
like who gave me the right
left right left
a space to breathe
for a second
i just need to breathe
just wait
you'll see...
i'll swing two bats with my words
two bats with my smile
two bats with my truth
and step up
to bat my eyes
if she's looking back at me.

Well I guess it would be nice
If I could touch your body
I know not everybody
Has got a body like you

But I've got to think twice
Before I give my heart away
And I know all the games you play
Because I play them too

Oh but I
Need some time off from that emotion
Time to pick my heart up off the floor
And when that love comes down
Without devotion
Well it takes a strong man baby
But I'm showing you the door

'Cause I gotta have faith...

I know you're asking me to stay
Say please, please, please, don't go away
You say I'm giving you the blues
You mean every word you say
Can't help but think of yesterday
And another who tied me down to loverboy rules

Before this river
Becomes an ocean
Before you throw my heart back on the floor
Oh baby I reconsider
My foolish notion
Well I need someone to hold me
But I'll wait for something more

Yes I've gotta have faith...
