Apoplexy, Party of One

Excitement, too great. Must. Sit Down.

I've been having a couple good days lately. A teacher who promised to make us cry by the end of the quarter (for which I'm an easy target) and who is proud of the fact that he is getting students to drop the class one by one liked what I had to show him on Monday. I was so nervous going into class that night, and I came out feeling like a hero. Yay! Plus, rumor has it that if he likes you in the beginning he'll like you all the way through... I'm not holding my breath on that one, but my fingers are crossed a little. And my teacher was out for yesterday's class so A) no class! and B) I had the director of the program look at what I was working on and she liked it. So, you know... another load off.

And, because I like to spend my free time being a nerd, I went to the library. As I was walking out with my maximum number of checked out items, debating whether or not I should get coffee, Annie called me to tell her that Scooter brought extra Starby's to her during her class and would I like one? Wheee!! Next time, I'm going to think about robbing a bank and hope to come across a blank check or something equally free money-ish. Hope the rest of you are having just as much, if not more, luck than I am.

**Totally forgot to mention that, Starby whore I am, when I got my coffee this morning I requested it without whipped cream. I was tempted to be annoyed when I got it with, but was secretly excited-- special treats for me! As Eia said when I told her, "You were trying to be good and then God said, "Give that girl some sugar!"" Gimme some sugar, indeed.

I'll Take an Order of Size 10s With an Extra Side of Guilt, Please

In class on Monday, we were asked to bring in a few ads and after each of us talked about them a bit, our teacher asked us where we pulled them from. Most replies were along the Rolling Stone, Cosmo, Maxim lines, but one girl-- who had annoyed me on the first day by talking incessantly about Disneyland, FYI-- responded by saying "I found it in my mom's bathroom." Riiiiight. And a little ew.

So last night I had class with some of the same people from that class and we were laughing at all the silly things that people had said when I decided that I needed to repeat what Disneygirl said. I checked out the room, made sure she wasn't there, and did a complete mimic of what she'd said, including using her high-pitched, whiney voice. Hey, guess what? You know how I didn't see her in class? Yeah, that was because she was standing directly behind me. I am such an asshole. Wanna be my friend?

Does Anyone Want A Prize?

I'm not saying it's a good one, I'm just saying I have prizes for anyone who says they want one.

Say Hello.

This is Magna. (Secretly, I call her Magma because I think she's liquid hot.)

Eia brought her home after Magna had served her time in lost and found. At first, I was skeptical because I've had all the bike-related injuries I want, but she's so pretty! I couldn't resist for long. So in the evenings, Magna and I take a trip around the block to get the mail and spy on the neighbors. Maybe one day I'll take her out onto the main street, but I don't think we're ready for that yet. I have high hopes for us though, and think we're going to get along splendidly, if only because she matches my shoes so well.

Egg Salad, PB&J, Turkey on Whole Wheat

Yesterday I spent a long time thinking about how much it would stink if your name was Sal Yours.

"Who does this sandwich belong to?"
"Sal Yours."

And then he would eat it all gone. Sorry, Sal.

Sometimes I think I'm so funny when I come up with these ideas, but mostly, I just think its a sign that I need to go take a nap.

My Subconscious Can Beat Up Your Subconscious (But Wouldn't Because It's Too Good Willed)

Last night I had one of the more interesting dreams I've had in a while-- mostly because I actually remembered it and not because there were no flying apes or intergalactic automobiles involved. Everything seemed well within the realm of possibility and therefore, kinda freaked me out. The scenario:

I was at some kind of formal event-- a reception of some kind where everyone was very nice and polite with the exception of myself who was feeling rather glib and flippant about the whole thing. At some point, I picked up a phone message from a man who was the Minister of (oops, don't remember this part... some country... or perhaps the Minister of Magic?) and wanted to speak to me about how proud of me and grateful he was that I would be meeting with the German refuges the next day. Apparently, I was doing great things. He finished up his message by saying that he didn't know what my plans were, but he had arranged a scholarship for me to get my jurisprudence degree at the university of my choice. Immediately, randomly, I found the girl I had hated in 5th grade and rubbed it in.

So, while, yes, technically, this was all within the realm of some far off possibility, there was one point that stood out as completely random: I used the word jurisprudence in my dream. My subconscious is now officially smarter than I give it credit for.
