Bush in 30 Seconds

Bush in 30 Seconds

I fell asleep during the first commercial of The Daily Show and woke up when Colin Quinn came on. This morning I woke up at 6:51 and started thinking 'I have another hour to sleep... if it wasn't Thursday!' That was disappointing.

Can I pretend today was Friday?

Yea!!! Wednesday is over. Physucks was the-class-that-never-ends; in biochem threw too much info at me; work was boring but I got candy at the Biochem Stores; micro genetics is hell; the movie in Women & Lit was incredibly confusing and quite different from the book; physucks lab sucked; i made it to tkd late and really wanted to kick something, such as a bag, but ended up teaching; met Josh and Shauna at Gus' for beer and nachos and went back to their place to watch Smallville; returned home at 10:30 to hear my roomies debating stuff; missed The Daily Show but am now watching Jon Stewart on an old Leno while eating some mini chicken burritos. Do you like my insanely long sentence? I have been reading too much Virginia Woolf.

I had a good relatively relaxing weekend. On Saturday I actually watched the football game with Nicole and Laura. My first full game of the year. We ordered Pokeys and then felt sick for awhile. I went to work for a couple hours because I need the money, but I earned such a depressingly small amount of money in those 2+ hours that it hardly seems worth it. I calld Shauna after I was done and she came and picked me up and we grabbed pizza and beer and then watched the World Series and played darts while wondering where Josh was. Her friend Ryan came over and we went to Gus' for more beer and more watching of the game. Josh had to work late and didn't make it so we met him back to their place drank more beer and played darts again. Shauna and I beat Josh and Ryan!! I had 6 beers in 7 hours. the only time I was feeling it was when I called Josh around 11:00 to figure out where he was.

I still don't have a Halloween costume. I need something that won't cost me anything and that possibly uses a nice black dress, part of my costume from last year and/or my lab coat. All things will not cost me anything and that is the goal. I think I may color another Frank. Different color scheme though.

I am an artist!!!

Tonight I colored Frank! I got all artsy and shaded him and he looks very nice I believe. Much better than this version. He looks sooo happy!!


Along with Frank, Nicole and I made bats and pumpkins out of construction paper. I felt like I was back in elementary school. I would never do this stuff on my own, which is why I have Nicole around to make me. While being all creative, we listened to all the Eva Cassidy I have on my computer. I of course had to sing along with most of it.

I am again without car this weekend and I most likely will be next weekend as well. It's such a pain to not have a car. I didn't make it to tkd tonight partly because I fell asleep and partly because I didn't feel like walking the 20 minutes to the Field House in the rain.

I am making food again. I think I eat about every 4 hours. I better go make sure it's not burning.

I am so easily distracted lately. My brain can't stay on the subject it's supposed to. Yesterday in my biochem class I sat there thinking about stuff not at all related to biochem, which Ii actually find kind of interesting, for about six slides worth of information without even realizing it. Just now I was reading a book for class and was reading the words but totally thinking about something else and had no idea what I read. I hope I can study tonight.

Field of Screams

ISB&T Field of Screams

My roomies and I are thinking about going on Sunday night around 8 if you want to join us!! Bring friends!!

I just figured out that I am over $100 short for rent next month, and that is with my next paycheck and if I don't spend more than the 10 bucks I have in my wallet. I think I need a weekend job that pays better than my job at the lab.

For those of you who watch what you eat... Here's the final word on nutrition and health.

It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies:

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the Americans.

3. The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the Americans.

4. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than the Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Relationships and feelngs are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.

I only cried once!!

Rey is leaving tomorrow morning :(. She starts her new job as a physical therapist on Monday in Denver. I just got back from a going-away/congratulations party for her at Adam's parent's house in CR. Her dad took us out to Perkins afterwards because all we go was cake at the party. The 'party' ended with all of us crying. Adam said that was not how he expected it to end. Rey asked me if I could tutor Adam's sister in geometry because she won't be able to anymore. I said I could definitely try. I haven't done geometry in such a long time, but I would like to think I can figure it out.

Her dad is a big sweetie. He gave me a hug when he saw me and paid for my meal at Perkins. He and I talked about how important college is and how proud of Rey he is.

Rey and I became pretty good friends really quickly after she moved in. We kind of knew each other from the training room at the Field House because she did my treatment quite often and taped my wrist a few times. We also bonded over our issues with Stephanie. I also get along really well with Adam. They moved up their wedding date to October 8, 2005 instead of September 16, 2006 because she is moving to Colorado. Adam is following after he finishes this semester and is going to finish school out there. I am going to miss him too when he leaves. He is such a nice guy.

I am so happy for her because she finally found a job but I am really going to miss her. She applied for over 40 at the hospital and was rejected for all of them. Probably because she was over qualified.

I got to see their wedding rings!! They are so pretty. I remember the day Adam showed me the engagement ring. He was so nervous because he had gone to Denver while Rey was out of town to ask for her parent's permission, and he didn't want her to know that he had gone to see them. I helped him make it look like he had been around and I cleaned their fish tank because he told her he would clean it that weekend.

I am going to watch The Daily Show and head to bed. I still have to go to school tomorrow.'s a rerun.

Need Sleep

I intended to go to bed about an hour ago. I think I pretty much failed a quiz today, if you can truly call it a quiz. Quizes aren't 4 pages long and have 10 questions totally 100 points. My prof is in denial about his tests and keeps calling them quizzes and giving them to us about every 2 weeks or so. I hate that class

I just found out yesterday that Rey is leaving for Colorado on Friday. She got a job as a PT. Adam isn't moving until January, after he graduates. I am going to a party for her tomorrow. Adam's parents are hosting, which is very strange since they don't really like Rey for som reason. I am going to miss her.

I don't know where my roomies are!! I usually have some idea of what they are doing, but I currently have no idea. I haven't seen them at all today except for the bus ride to campus with Nicole.

My shoulder hurts. It's the one I hurt last fall while mountain biking, but now I have no idea what it's problem is. It just hurts. I wonder if I slept on it funny, but I don't remember noticing it hurting until I was at the Gym Nest last night.

Herky was in my dance class today!! One of the guys in my class is one of the Herky's and he came dressed in the outfit today. I am not sure why he did, but we acted like it was nothing. People kept walking by and looking in to watch a guy in a Herky costume dance. He sat down in front of me when we were warming up and accidentally touched my foot while we were stretching and then tickled my foot. That was kind of weird, but otherwise it was a pretty normal dance class.

Someone just walked in!! It's Nicole!!

Monday, October 11, 2004 - Politics Makes You Stupid - Politics Makes You Stupid


Nicole and I just watched a show on PATV that was just a bunch of carved pumpkins. We watched it for about 20 minutes. I already carved a pumpkin, which I accidentally left it at Josh and Shauna's along with some other stuff, but I am now inspired to carve another. I want to carve Pacman or Ms. Pacman and a ghost. I think I may try to put them both on one pumpkin with Pacman about to eat the ghost. I think I am leaning towards Ms. Pacman.

I let my sister use my car this weekend, which she still claims is her car too, and to pay for the gas she used she left me $3 in my car. Nicole suggested that I leave very little gas in the tank when she wants to take it in a couple weeks. Does she not realize that I am basically supporting myself on about $400 a month and $350 or more of that goes toward my rent and bills? I also need to get the oil changed.

It's my cousin Bailey's birthday and I really need to email her. I didn't forget her birthday; I just haven't gotten around to emailing her yet.

It's debate time again!!! I have been half watching the debate while I do my physics pre-lab and play on my computer. Nicole and I were trying to figure out how old John Edwards and the rest were so we looked it up. How old do you think John Edwards is? We were thinking he was in his early to mid 40's, but we learned he was born in 1953!!! That means he is about 51!!! I don't think he looks that old. He's the same age as my parents. Bush was born in 1946, Kerry in 1943 and Cheney in 1941.

I just realized I hadn't flipped my calendar over to October and I was just whining this weekend about Josh changing his calendar. I usually do that for him. I am such a dork.

I have more poetry to read. I really don't like reading poetry. I don't enjoy it and I don't like to look for it's 'hidden' meaning. Tell me what you want to tell me, but be straightforward about it. Don't try to hid it all behind pretty words and symbols and whatever else they use. I think most English majors probably want to kick me after writing that.

I still don't know what I want to do for Halloween. I several options, but haven't really done any investigating for any of them. I need to get on that.

Has everyone gotten the invite for pumpkin carving and debate watching on Friday night after tkd? Maybe we can do some costume brainstorming then. I plan to make some pumpkin bread and possibly some more chocolate chip or peanut butter M&M bars.

I think it's time to use my newly acquired tea kettle to make some tea or possibly hot chocolate. Or maybe I will go kinda in between the two and make some chai tea. I still need to read that poetry.

When my mom came yesterday she brought me some food. Along with some stuff I will actually use she gave me 42 taco shells. How the hell am I supposed to eat 42 taco shells? I think we are going to have a taco party some time. I really prefer soft tacos.

You are the color pink. As a beautiful and sweet
human, you are everybody's favorite person.
Healthy and energetic, you're often seen
spreading the happines. As an unusually
charming and sweet person, you're always ready
to comfort people who are down. You sympathize
with everyone, but not always yourself. Aside
from that, you are light-hearted and cheery.
And you make it your duty to make every cloud

It's dead around here. I am at the lab and there are only about 5 people here. Shawn won't be in for a couple hours yet, Jana's not here and Matt just left. Those are all the people I talk to in the lab. I also am not at all motivated to do any work right now. I could put some files into the database I created, but it's boring work and I don't think I can handle that right now. There's not a lot to do around here with everyone in Washington D.C. for a conference and no one making messes for me to clean up. I am currently trying to find something to buy at biochem stores so I can go talk to the guys there for a while. It doesn't reopen for another 10 minutes though.

Last night I calculated that I have about $60 left after rent and the cable bill for this month. We haven't gotten our electric and phone bills yet, so I probably have about half of the $60. Luckily I get paid Tuesday, but I am making so little right now, that it hardly seems worth it. Oooohhh!!!! I just remembered I get my check from the Gym Nest on Monday!!! It will be a comparatively big one as well. I bet it will be larger than the paycheck I get from working at the lab. Now I am feeling slightly better. I would feel even better if I had deposited the checks from my roomies for the rent and cable bill, but I haven't made it to the bank yet. I just hope the places I wrote the checks to are slower at cashing checks than I am. If the rent check goes through before I deposit those checks today, I am in trouble.

I somehow managed to grab my sunglasses, but not my umbrella today. I discovered how wet you can get while walking from Van Allen to Bowen in the rain. My coat still isn't dry and that was 3 hours ago.
