Hello, Universe?

You can stop laughing at me now. I get the point.

Lazy day

Today was a very lazy day. Was woken up by the rest of the family around 8:30 so we could all go downstairs and open presents. Went downstairs, opened presents, ate Cinnabon cinnamon rolls for breakfast. And then we spent the rest of the day on the couch (with the exception of D locking me outside while trying to call Erik, and baking a pecan pie), watching movies. We watched Bandits (a family gift), Finding Nemo (D's gift), Pirates of the Caribbean (both D and I got a copy), Freaky Friday (Mom's gift. Very cute movie. ^_^), and Legally Blonde 2 (D's gift. Cute movie, but a little bit too saccharine). And we made pizza for dinner. All in all, a very fun day. :) I'll try to get pics of my presents up tomorrow. Got some great stuff. :D

Happy Birthday to Me! ^_^

How's the saying go? "Eighteen at last! Eighteen at last! Thank God Almight, eighteen at last!"? ;)

Well, something along those lines. :p

I am roflmaopimp.

(rolling on the floor, laughing my ass of, peeing in my pants, for those of you who don't know ;))

I've got my powerstrip set up next to the side of my desk. My phone charger is currently plugged into it, the phone is connected to the charger, and sitting on the top of the desk, so the cord connecting them hangs down and forms a loop.

I had to go to the bathroom really bad, so I got out of my chair and made a mad dash for the bathroom. My foot caught in the loop of the charger, so my feet stayed and my body kept moving. I ended up imitating Superman as I flew across the room. :p

I'm fine. I'm uninjured, and laughing my ass off at myself.


Also--got my grade back on my anthro midterm today. 100%! WOOT! Hot DAMN, I knew I did well, but I wasn't expecting THAT!

While wading through my HumCore reading this afternoon, I came across the longest damn sentenc I have ever seen in my entire life. This is worse even than Milton, and I didn't know that was possible.

Yes, I typed up all of that. *faints*

Wow. Crazy weather today. It's very, very overcast, enough that you can look directly at the sun with no problem whatsoever. It doesn't even look like the sun. I thought it was the moon for a second, until I remembered that you don't see full moons during daylight. And the sun is hot pink. People outside were exclaiming about it being red but, I kid you not, it is hot pink. The clouds are grey, but they've got a definite orange tinge to them. And every time I step outside, or glance outside, it's like running into a brick wall. I just have to stop and give myself a moment to let it all sink in. All of the colors are weird. The only example I've been able to consciously notice is that the grass is unnaturally vibrant and bright. Grass does not grow that green. I think the gods are playing an immense Halloween practical joke on us today.

I've got the first four books in the Anita Blake series. I just bought the last seven online--and it cost be $8.00. ^_^ This is what happens when you own/have read so many books that people don't know which ones to get you, so they get you gift certificates, and you hoard them and put them away and forget about them until years later when you have to go through your things to pack and move. :p

I've got $110 dollars worth of gift certificates. (or, well, I did, before I spent $60 of it. ;)). I would have been able to buy all seven books without having to pay anything, except decided it didn't want to recognize my $25 certificate as valid, so I had to use my $20 one instead. The $25 one I guess I'll just have to keep until the next time I'm actually inside a Border's.

Anyway. I'm happy. I've got my Anita fix. :p And it cost me less than $2/book! ^_^

Did a little research.

Some news clippings about boba.

Instructions on how to make your own boba at home--with pictures at the top of this crazy-lookin' drink, which is mainly why I included this link.

The history of boba tea.

I experienced something that people around campus have been talking about for a while. It's called "boba"--and it's these little squishy black ball things that are put into drinks, and you eat. I've never had the guts to try them until last night, when the five of us were at Cha for Tea. Monica had ordered a honeydew tea with boba. I asked her what they tasted like, and instead of just telling me, she offered me a sip. :p

Those things are...weird. Very very weird. There these little wrinkled brown-black balls about half an inch in diameter, and when you eat them, there all squishy and jelly-like, except you can't bite into them. I tried, because I didn't have a clue what you were supposed to do with them once you sucked them up the straw and had them in your mouth. They just bounced back. And they don't really taste like anything. They're just bloody weird.

And I suspect they're a southern California thing. I had never in my life even heard the word "boba" before I came down here, and all of a sudden I'm surrounded by places selling it and people drinking it.

Maybe if I'd grown up with it, I'd like it. But...blech. I do not want to be swalling little balls of un-chewable, tasteless gelatin stuff. Blech blech blech. I'll stick with my regular tea, thank you.

I made myself some tea last night, and before I had a chance to drink it, I got really tired and realized it was midnight. I decided that since I had classes in the morning, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to dope myself up with caffeine. So instead of tossing out a perfectly good cup of tea, I put it in the fridge.

I went to get the tea out tonight...and found it frozen solid... o_O "You know you need to raise your fridge temperature when..."

Anyway, I trekked down the hall to Karen/Erin/Diana's room to borrow their microwave, tea is hot now, it's all good. But that just gives a whole new meaning to the term "iced tea"...

Oh MAN...

Somehow, our fridge got unplugged. I don't know when, or how, or for how long, but it's not cold at all in there anymore. The milk still feels *slightly* cool to the touch, and still has condesation on its sides, so it probably happened sometime last night, or early, early this morning.

*sigh* I'm pretty sure neither the milk or the yogurt are going to be good anymore. :( Don't know much about yogurt going bad, though--if the containers are still closed and sealed, will they still go bad in room temp for a few hours?

Maaaan. That sucks. :(:(:(

WOOOT!! I've got tickets!! YAYYYYYY!!!

*stops bouncing off the walls and clears her throat* Sorry about that. Been waiting for this for a while. ;)

I've finally finally finally got the tickets to Nonny and Robert's handfasting. And so does Erik. :D I have been stressing out about this and looking forward to this, and WHEW--I've finally got them and they're non-refundable, so barring catastrophe, we ARE going.

Purries!!!! Yayyy!!!!!!!!!!!
