lilyofshalott: (Only Time (Erik))

Surprisingly, my O.Chem final this morning wasn't as evil as I thought 'twould be--'twas difficult, yes, but I think I did pretty well (though I might have confused some of the mechanisms) and I may have even gotten part of the bonus question right! :D I went to lunch with Dana, Erin, and Kelly afterwards . . . and then proceeded to do absolutely nothing. Seriously. Since lunch, I've read maybe 3 chapters of The Scarlet Letter, wandered around on LJ (ooh, I should make some icons--I *still* haven't finished my songset yet), read a bunch of fanfiction, and made yet another paper snowflake to add to my wall (since Selinsgrove has no snow yet *is sad*)--which makes a total of 3. And it's not that I'm slacking off, either--I don't have anything to do. I can't go home until Thursday because of my US History final in the morning, but I don't have anything at all on Wednesday and 'tis impossible to study for my History final because 'tis all analysis . . . As promised, here is weekend-ness:

I *heart* my friends . . . but not O. Chem )

And now I'm all caught up--yay :)

My VCR is now officially evil--Not only has it eaten one of my PBS tapes and the Josh tape that had the two Ally episodes (tux Josh! *sobs*), but now it has eaten my copy of The Princess Bride :( I guess this means I'll have to ask my parents if they can tape the AMAs tomorrow (but I'll still watch it of course . . . and I hope Josh wins!!)

my not-so-very-exciting weekend )

First, I shall finish writing about yesterday, then I shall explain the heading (as if it needed any explanation . . .):

Dana and Danielle went to see the poet at Charlie's in the evening and I was working on homework. Erin invited me over to the suite to watch The Dark Crystal with Dan, Lori, and her. I guess the only way to describe the movie is "amazingly nifty"--Lori, Erin, and I had never seen the movie, and so we kept exclaiming how cute all the odd little creatures were (especially the dog-like ball of fluff) . . . after we finished the movie, we watched the scene where the two main characters try to leave the dog-like ball of fluff as they go on their quest, but it has a temper tantrum: opening it's jaws WIDE, whining, and beating the ground with its two little feet--accompanied by our hysterical laughter. Dan and Lori then went to the "non-alcoholic block party" hosted by the Student Activities Council or something--Erin didn't want to go, so she came to my room and we watched The Empire Strikes Back, which she'd never seen before (*gasp*!) I managed to keep my quotage to a minumun, and only quoted the essential Han/Leia banter ;D Erin said she got me hooked to the SW saga, so we're going to watch Return of the Jedi the weekend after next (fall break is this weekend!). Danielle and Dana came back at 1ish and we all talked about stuff and amused ourselves by looking up how many people there are with common names at SU--hehe.

Today, Dana was performing with the handbell group at Chris' church and Erin decided (this morning) to gather up a bunch of us and go see her. Dana was soo surprised to see Trout, Sarah, Erin, and I sitting there in the pews. Vicky also sat with us. Trout, Erin, Dana, and I went to "lunch" when we came back at around 11:30ish, but since they had mostly brunch-like things, I had a "second breakfast" of scrambled eggs, cocoa, and bagels with strawberrry cream cheese :) . . . then I worked (or tried to work) on the problem set for O.Chem. . . I went to Erin's to make sure I had the right isomers for one of the problems and was introduced to the amazingness that is her friend's website--it includes a section on how to resist squirrels taking over the world and an amazing "practice" AP English test (which is a hilarious parody) . . . I stared at problem 1 for about half an hour trying to figure it out (I'd already done 2 and 3 because the were easy), then decided I was tired and it would probably make more sense after I took a nap. I did, and it made more sense (and Dana helped me a bit) . . . which brings me to now . . . and I think I shall go to dinner . . .

Well, I'll have to fill you in on Alicia's wedding and the stuff that's happened in the last few weeks tomorrow, since 'tis about 1:00 . . . but I *have* to write about today . . .

this is going to be a looong post, so I'm lj-cutting it )

I can't believe we did so much today--I love my SU friends!! *huggles* Tomorrow continues Fall Frenzy with inflatables and such until 4--I bet we'll have a movie night in one of our rooms . . . I've missed those--especially the semi-random comments/quotate of other movies . . . :D

Thanks for a great day, guys!

Ok . . . going back to Wednesday . . . . 'twas a pretty good day at work, a little on the slow side, but not too much . . .the highlight of my day was going to Wal*Mart to get stuff for going back to SU, including the toaster for the SAVE suite, about which Erin and I had a rather long conversation:
much ado about toast )

I called Dana up (she's going to be my roommate this year--yay!) and we talked for a while [or is it "awhile"? I can never remember . . . Mrs. Higham would not be pleased . . ]

Thursday, I got a surprise at work as Lisa and Amy gave me a birthday/going back to school gift: Lisa made me a cake and Amy put together a basket filled with a bunch of stuff for school, including more tea! I felt loved :D 'Tis a sampler of Celestial Seasonings fruit teas . . . I don't really like herbal tea, so I'm not sure whether I'll like fruit tea . . . if not, I'm sure there'll be someone in the suite who'll drink it . . . hehe . . . I was *really* busy, as I was the only one at the window, so the cake sat untouched in the lab break room until after I came back from lunch. Then I cut the cake (Amy *really* wanted to eat it . . . haha) and Lisa, Amy, Loren (our newest Med Tech) and I each had some . . . . by the end of the day, there were only about two slices left . . . there was a rather difficult sendout that took both Jody and I about half an hour to figure out--we had to figure out all the tests and then what to do with each specimin tube . . . then Amy helped me fill out the LabCorp forms for it . . .

Friday started out a scary day at work because the entire computer system at the hospital had gone down at 4:00 Thurs afternoon and hadn't come back on until around 9 or 10 . . . so there were lots of specimens to be collected (the labels had printed out during evening shift) . . . even more grrfull was the evening shift people had decided not to make a downtime sheet, so we had to get a label, find the order, and then check to make sure everything that was on the order was on the label [if we would have had a downtime sheet, we would have just have had to check the labels against that one sheet] . . . I wouldn't have been able to do it by myself, but luckily Jody, Lisa, and Amy all helped . . . also a happy thing was that it would have been a "slow" day, so we didn't get any extra specimens and could concentrate on trying to figure everything out . . .

Here comes the bride--Alicia's rehearsal )

Well, I'm going to stop now because 'tis midnight and my mom said I should go to bed . . . since 'tis midnight, Happy Birthday to me! :D

Neither Monday nor Tuesday was particularly interesting, but I shall write about them for sake of continuity . . . .

Monday was a typical-ish day at the lab--'twasn't too busy (which is good), but wasn't slow either (which is also good) . . .my dad made blueberry pancakes for dinner, which were quite yummy :) Um . . . I actually don't remember what else we did, which is rather sad, isn't it?

Tuesday was fine in the morning at the lab, but the afternooon was really busy--Ron could only help me for a half an hour or so after he came because he had to go to the drawing room, leaving me with a load of specimins to collect and such, plus there was no-one at the desk so I had to answer the phone too--grr . . . I was quite excited to find out Bravo would be showing fencing, one of my favourite Olympic sports, so of course I watched it at 7--'twas the semifinals of Women's Sabre and the nifty thing was that all four women were left-handed ("Why are you smiling?" "Because I know something you don't" "And what would that be?" "I'm not left handed." [and I prob. misquoted that . . . *waves Princess Bride flag*]) . . . The #1 ranked fencer in the world, Sada Jacobson (I think that's her name) won the bronze medal, earning the USA it's first Olympic medal in women's fencing. And I think the other US fencer won the gold medal . . . and Michael Phelps won more medals in swiming . . . yay! . . .Erin and I had a long conversation in the evening about what we're going to take for the SAVE suite and it was decided that I (as I was named Madame Minister of Toast Aquisation for suggesting that we get a toaster for the suite) should purchase the toaster. Erin, among other things, is bringing a little pot of mini roses to make the suite pretty--and they're white roses, which are my favourite :D

I'm going to brush my teeth and get ready for bed and such, but I'll probably write about my day today(and the wonders of the SAVE toaster in a little bit . . .
Oh, and if anyone can guess the (semi) obscure little reference in this post, I shall give you a Wonka bar (not really, but 'tis the though that counts, right?) ;)
