stuff and stuff

i'm ill and bored. i stayed in all day, lying on the bed. i think i got it from the little monster i was babysitting on friday night. she is a 4 year old turkish girl and she is very cute until it's bed time. i had to sing her a lot of songs so that she would stop crying so i practically gave a concert to a 4 year old who would - instead of shouting song names - cry and say "but i want my mommy" between the songs. one of the many weird conversations i had with her goes:

4-year-old-girl: but i want my mommiiieeeeaaaaa
me: wow such beautiful hair you have! it's so nice and soft!
4-y-o-g: nooooo
me: you don't have beautiful hair?
4-y-o-g: nooooooo
me: who has beautiful hair, then?
4-y-o-g: somebody eeeeeeeelse!!

and here's another one:

me: would you like some water?
4-y-o-g: noooooooooooooo (while grabbing the glass of water from my hands and downing it)

so yeah in the end she kept me up till 5 in the morning and fell asleep only then cause her parents had come back. if i remember correctly, the mother had told me something about this being a very easy job, her going to bed at 7:30 and me being able to hang around to do whatever i want. no way i'm doing that much work for that little money again!

in other news, it turns out that i have to pass this test, which is said to be awfully difficult, so that i can continue my studies here. if i pass it, then they will count the lectures which i have already done back in istanbul. there's always something else going on and i'm pretty tired of waiting to be able to study here, but looks like i don't have another choice. the test is in march. yikes.

i listened to the debut solo album of sandra nasic and i have to say i'm not very fond of it. guano apes is one of my fav bands and i love sandra but this album just doesn't do. except for the 2 songs with music videos; "fever" and "the name of my baby", there aren't any good songs.

i think jason mraz is so cute... although he wears pink flip flops in one of his videos.

i want to be with a guy who plays a musical instrument and who can talk, as in conversation.

9 crimes

Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be thinking of you
It's the wrong time
For somebody new
It's a small crime
And I've got no excuse
Is that alright, yeah?

Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright, yeah?
If you don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright, yeah?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright, yeah?
With you...
