Amanda, Kristen and Leah,

I hope you don't mind that I added links to your blogs to my blog. I will happily remove them if you do!!

Leap year!!!

I can finally change my Angel calendar over to March soon. I am sick of looking at Connor because I don't really like him. I was going to change it now, but I decided to wait until at least midnight so it would officially be March, in this time zone anyway.

I am currently watch The Actors Studio and the cast of The Simpsons is on. It is very interesting to put the faces with the voices. Of course I already new Hank Azaria adn Yeardley Smith, but not so much the others. I really need to be reading Genesis 1-9 for a class, but i am watching this instead.

I recently finishced cleaning my roomie's boyfriend's fish tank. He is freaking out because he is about to ask my roommate to marry him. He spent the weekend in Colorado talking to her parents and trying to convince her that he was here. He just got back and was trying to get things ready for her return from Louisiana. I offered to clean the fish tank, which is in our living room, because he looked so nervous. He showed me the ring and it is gorgeous. She picked it out, so I know she will like it. I am so excited for them. She has already told me she knows she is going to marry him.

I am going to read during the commercials.

Wearing flip flops in India

I actually didn't really go to India if you were all wondering. I went to Delhi, IOWA, and I wore flip flops. I love flip flops. I have way too many pairs of them. I went to Delhi while wearing flip flops to see my sister perform her tribute to the 80's for a speech contest. When Lexsea saw me walk into the Delhi High School gym she ran to me and jumped on me wrapping her legs around my waist and her arms around my neck. This is how she usually greets me. It's kinda cute.

Lex did a really good job with her speech. She started out singing Do You Really Want to Hurt Me which then got stuck in my head for the rest of the afternoon, and again now, since I started thinking about it again. Then she covered music, hair styles, spandex and sweatbands. It was pretty funny and she got a "I" rating which means she now goes to state. The only thing wrong with her presentation was her jeans and here hairspray. She didn't get the French roll right and she didn't have a nice big bottle of Aquanet. I will need to work on that with her.

I think my sister cursed me. As I was driving back from Delhi tonight, I almost hit a deer. Luckily I was able to stop in plenty of time. We don't need another deer wrecked car in this house. I didn't tell my mom when she called me earlier. There was no need to freak her out.

I got a fake gas station cappuccino on the drive back. I hadn't had one in a very long time. I went into that gas station with every intention of getting a normal coffee and when I saw the fake cappuccino machine I couldn't resist. I think it was because Amanda mentioned how good they are awhile ago.

My friend Joanna was just here and she noticed my wallpaper is the cast of Firefly. She is a huge Buffy/Angel fan as well and she got freaked out because the actors that played Caleb and Jasmine, from Buffy and Angel respectively, are part of the cast. Xander losing his eye to Caleb has traumatized her.

I need some more diet cream soda.

nothing broken

I am finally home!!! 17 hours after I first left my apartment this morning I am finally back for more than 20 minutes. I am SO tired.

My day started out with a little skiing. I had never skied before until today. All the beginners, and my dad, got a little lesson. We were taught how to slow ourselves down, turn and ride the ski lift. I think riding the lift was my favorite part. Our instructor was great, he even learned many of our names. I "mastered" the bunny slope and decided to try another, supposedly slightly harder slope. It took me forever to get down it. I kept going too fast and had to stop without killing myself. It also got kinda icy at the end, which got a little scary. I kept thinking back to my mountain biking accident where I decided to try the harder trail and ended up screwing up my shoulder. I made it down and didn't break any part of myself. I called it a success. I think I would probably go again.

After a 2 second shower and throwing some clothes on, I left again. This time I went to the Vagina Monologues with a couple of my friends from the lab. It isn't really my thing so I went with them just to see what it was like. It was entertaining and funny and I liked the way they supported women's' rights, but I think it was just a little much for me. After that it was decided that we needed Shamrock shakes from McDonald's. I went to one of my friend's apartment while the guys went and got the shakes then we watched a few episodes of Sex and the City. I am still not sure of my opinion of that show. It is my friend's favorite show and she has been insisting that I watch it for a few weeks now.

Tomorrow I am heading to Delhi to watch my sister compete in a speech competition. I don't know when or where it is, so hopefully I find that out sometime tomorrow.

It has been a weird day. I missed my one and only class today because my alarm didn't go off. I woke up when I needed to catch the bus. I really wanted to go to that class!! It didn't feel like Thursday at all today because I am not going to any classes tomorrow because the lab is going skiing. I have been kinda confused all day.

My little sister hit a deer tonight!!! It crunched her little red car. She and her passengers are fine, but the police didn't think it was $1000 worth of damage so no report was filed. My mom and sis disagree and they will probably have to file a report anyway. I think my dad was planning on selling it soon.

My order from Amazon finally arrived at about 5:30 today. I now have the 5th season of Buffy and Firefly to add to my collection. I still don't have the 4th season, but I will soon. I also need Angel yet. I will have them all soon!

My dad should be here soon so I should probably start watching for him.

Hero of Canton

I want a hat like that. If you don't know what I am talking about I feel very sorry for you.

Reese's Pieces eggs totally beat the regular version. More peanut butter and less candy shell. Very yummy. They need to make them egg shaped all year round. The chocolate eggs are also a wonderful invention. I need to stop buying candy.

I was really hoping my 5th season of Buffy and Firefly DVDs would come today. They should be here tomorrow. I still need to watch the easter egg on Firefly. I think i am going to do that right after I finish writing this. Adam Baldwin wearing the hat and singing. You can't get much better than that. Angel as a puppet is pretty close though.

My dad is coming tomorrow. I am still not sure where he is going to sleep and I still need to clean my room so I don't have bras and clothes all over. They are clean; they were drying and I just haven't had a chance to put them in the correct places yet. My dad is joining me and many from my lab for skiing on Friday. I have never been skiing before. It is supposed to be in the 50's on Friday. Can they make snow when it is that warm? If nothing else we can still have the day off I suppose.

Since I am going skiing on Friday, I only have one more class this week, and it is my favorite class!!! My physics lab was cancelled this week since we had a test this morning. I am still debating whether I want to stay at work longer to make up for not being there at all Tuesday or if I want to leave at my normal time. I do need to ask for a raise soon so it might be better if I just stayed. hmmmm...

Time to watch Firefly!!

dedicated student, I am

I have been trying to study. I really have, but I just can't get focused. I just wanna watch Keen Eddie and QE take some Robitussin PM and go to bed. And maybe watch the easter egg on the Firefly DVD. It is only Tuesday, but it feels like it should be Thursday. I just wish it was Friday so I could go skiing with my dad and the lab. Maybe I should eat more tacos.

Why am I burning a really good smelling candle eventhough I am too stuffed up to smell it?

Instead of studying I decided to set up my Buffy pop-out people on my new bookshelf. I am not very good at the setting up part. They keep falling over. I put them next to my little Buffy tins filled with bubblegum shaped like stakes that I got from my roomie. I am getting really good at avoiding studying.

OK, now I really am going to study, or at least stare at my notes.


I had a genetics exam last night and I found out in discussion today I did a problem totally wrong. Yea!!! I love ambiguous questions on exams. I did get one correct that I totally guessed on. It kinda balances out.

I think I got it all working now. Thanks Amanda!

Now that I have my comments I have lost my links!!! I have no idea why!!! Any ideas?

I was feeling left out since I didn't have a blog of my own. I have never been very good at keeping up with these sorts of things, but I will try this time. I will try to rant about my insane life on here instead of at other people who really don't care. Now no one has to listen to my craziness unless they want to. I know I will spend too much time playing with this thing. Now I gotta figure out how to put comments on this thing. I had it at one point, but then I tried to change it a little and it didn't work. It has been too long since I have written any type of computer code.
