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 :)

lilyofshalott: (So my fantasy)

I'm an odd person--I don't mind when 'tis cloudy during the day (because I love white puffy clouds), but I hate when 'tis cloudy at night (because then I can't see the moon and stars). I was all excited when I saw that 'twasn't cloudy as I walked back to my dorm after dinner, because I thought we'd have a clear sky to watch the lunar eclipse . . . sadly, the clouds came back and almost entirely covered the sky . . . well, except for a few patches . . . Erin, Tori, Dana, and I went to the field hockey pitch at around 9:30ish when the moon was half gone (or half full--hehe). Erin and I lay on our backs on the (slightly wet) grass and we all said hello/goodbye to the moon as it went in and out of the clouds (like peek-a-boo, Dana said) . . . we talked about random stuff like dams (because Erin's been watching movies about them in her enviro classes), PotO/CATS(because we were trying to find references to the moon in PotO for Dana [she was wearing her PotO sweatshirt] after Erin and I said we were both wearing stuff with the moon on it), WICKED Harry Potter, symbolic-ness of characters' names in Harry Potter, children's books we'd read, etc. I wished on the one star I could see through the clouds. At one point, the three of them were all standing above me (because I was still lying on the ground) and I felt like I was in the last scene of A Knight's Tale--the "You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting--Welcome to the new world" part--hehe . . . and I also made a *really* bad pun--Dana said something (about the moon, probably) and I said, "I could probably wax poetic about that . . . but it's waning" . . . there was a beat, and then they all groaned (while I cackled insanely at my witty remark) . . . we decided to go back in at around 10:30 because we'd lost the moon--I think it was completely eclipsed at the time, but the clouds had completely covered the sky and we couldn't see anything . . . it was rather amusing when I got up after laying on the ground for almost an hour--I couldn't walk straight and was literally staggering around as we made our way back to Seibert (and couldn't stop laughing, either) . . . needless to say, 'twas *quite* an odd feeling . . . I wish 'twouldn't have been so cloudy and we would have been able to watch the eclipse a bit better, but I still had fun and the conversation was great :D

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

Woo!! I just finished my last final, which means my freshman year at Susquehanna is officially over!! I’m really excited, yet also saddened because I’m going to miss all my SU friends tremendously over the summer—we have to get together and do something before the summer holidays . . . I mean vacation . . . is over—perhaps going to Chris’ show or something . . . and we definitely need to do the British films marathon—I use enough Briticisms as it is, I might as well have a proper accent ;) . . .

This year has gone by soo fast—I can remember orientation as if it were only last week (which isn’t too well—haha) . . . I can’t believe the school year’s already finished, but I also can’t believe that I found such good friends here that are amazing, and awesome, and almost as nutters as I am—I mean, before I came here, I didn’t have friends who I could watch Braveheart and quote Monty Python with, were as into soundtracks and John Williams as I am, plan on watching a movie and instead have a late night conversations, or hum along with the soundtrack while watching Pirates of the Caribbean . . . haha—notice how lots of our memories come from watching movies? I got this idea from my friend Caitlin (G-Girl) from home, and although I know most of you have Xangas instead of LiveJournals, I’m still going to do it, because I love all of you and am really going to miss you this summer . . . [and I'm LJ-cutting this because it's wicked long]

friends make my world go 'round )

Don't forget, everyone, "shindig" at Erin and Lori's (??) tonight . . . our last one of the year . . . :'(

Wow . . .  I haven’t updated in awhile . . .  again---and what’s even worse is that I’m almost 2 weeks behind in my real journal!! *gasp* Let’s see . . . this weekend was quite fun.  J Friday night, Dana, Erin, and I were planning on watching a movie (CATS, to be exact) but didn’t know where we were going to be able to watch it because my roommate and one of Dana’s roommates had a track meet early Sat. morning and were going to bed early, plus Lori (Erin’s roommate) goes to bed early on a regular basis, so we couldn’t watch it in Erin, Dana, or my rooms . . . Dana and I had to wait for Erin for some reason (I don’t remember where she was . . . ) and decided to go to Charlie’s to wait for her there (since Dana’s cell was out of batteries) . . .  We watched the last episode of American Idol and then Dana’s copy of Disney’s Robin Hood, which I’d never seen before—I enjoyed it immensely (ah, the romantic in me . . . *sigh) . . .  Charlie’s was playing Caddyshack, so we ended up watching the end of the movie—Erin found us and joined us . . .  we went back to Hass. and decided to just go up to the third floor lounge and talk because we couldn’t watch the movie . . . .


On to Saturday . . . I was awakened at around 1 by loud screaming coming from somewhere outside . . . but I eventually went back to sleep and woke up at 4ish (I’m just as bad as you, Rehta!) . . . since ‘twas such a nice day, I decided to do my Thought reading out on the field hockey pitch—Sara joined me and told me that the loud screaming had been the Greek Olympics, to conclude Greek Week, on the field hockey pitch (that explained why ‘twas so loud—the pitch is right outside of Smith [my dorm]). Dana then joined us on my blanket . . . Sara did something to annoy Dana, who then swatted her and said “That was a warning”. I was reading, but had heard enough of the exchange to answer back, “The next time, my hand flies on its own. Where I come from, there are penalties when a woman lies”---the sad/scary/slightly amusing thing is that ‘twas semi-unconscious (you know you’ve seen a movie too many times when . . . hehe). Dana and I went to Encore after I finished my chapter because I hadn’t eaten dinner yet [oh, slightly odd thing: Sara asked me if I wanted to go to dinner with her and I said I wasn’t hungry—she then   asked me if I were anorexic because I’m never hungry when she wants do go to dinner . . . I’m definitely NOT anorexic—I just eat when I’m hungry and don’t eat when I’m not hungry—this week especially I just haven’t had much of an appetite, and I don’t know why]. Dana, Erin, and I went to see “A Winter’s Tale” at around 8ish—‘twas sooo good! Aaron White was hilarious as the Rouge (aka crazy person who jumps around hitting a cowbell and ends up actually being a courtier or something). Erin and I had to explain the plot to Dana and Lori during intermission and when the show was over, we gave different theories about whether Hermione never died and was pretending to be a statue or if she did die and the statue came to life and turned into Hermione (I was of the latter opinion, which we found out was right  J). Then we went to the Phi Mu Alpha Brotherhood Auction to buy Chris . . . it was quite amusing—we were disappointed that Chris didn’t dance though. The four of us were all sitting together, of course, and were each bidding on Chris---Lori ended up buying him for $15, although I had my hand up too . . . the guy who was being the “auctioneer” didn’t see me, I guess . . . oh well . . . the best part of the auction had to be when Aaron White came out dressed as Capt. Jack Sparrow—complete with wig and costume . . . and the “drunken swagger” . . . Erin said “from now on, he IS Johnny Depp!” . . . . . When the auction was over, the five of us went to Hass, and tried to decide what Lori was going to do with her 2 hours with Chris (get your mind out of the gutter if you’re reading this, Sarah!!) . . . they decided to take a raincheck for next weekend (we’re all probably going to watch movies or something . . .). Dana said he’d promised to sing a duet with her (well, Dana would be playing piano and Chris would be singing), so I said, “ooh! MUSIC OF THE NIGHT!!!!” J Lori “released” him until next weekend, and then she, Erin, Dana, and I watched the end of an “Alias” episode they’d started watching earlier . . . . then Lori went to bed and Erin, Dana, and I went back to my room to watch CATS (at 1am), which I’d never seen before—I knew a few of the songs—“Gus” and “Macavity” from Sarah Brightman’s ALW album, “Mr. Mistoffoles”(sp) from listening to it in Sara’s room, and I’ve seen the “Jellicle Cats” song (the first one in the musical) on PBS . . . Dana left during the part with the cats dressed up as tap dancing cockroaches (she had to wake up early for a crew meet) . . . . I really enjoyed it, even though it has no plot (‘tis pleasantly random) and the songs get stuck in your head (hey, it’s ALW, a lot of his songs are like that . . . like my Sarah Brightman album . . .)

lilyofshalott: (Josh w/ blue)
Details about Josh's concert in DC--since much thudding and swooning and general carrying on occurs, I decided to ljcut this so my non-Grobie friends don't have to read a huge entry of me rambling on about how amazing Josh is . . .

Josh at Constitution Hall )

To summarise: Josh was amazing!! I want to go to another concert! (and I wish I would have been able to meet him) Anybody want to go with me and THUD some more?

To show you how excited I was when I found out Dana and I got a room in Seibert, I bring you the conversation with Erin

erin: haha, you're right
me: our first stop on the path to world domination--mwahahaha
me: hehe
erin: the same thing we do every year, pinky
erin: i was just talking to steph about how we should decorate, and put a tv in
me: yes Brain, but where will we find pants that big? hehe
erin: i don't remember that part
me: you know, every time Brain says "are you pondering what I'm pondering?" Pinky anwers with something totally random
erin: lol
erin: of course. pinky doesn't ponder
me: like, "yes Brain, but once we free all the sea turtles, where will they sleep?"
erin: lol
me: but there was one episode I remember where Pinky's plan a almost worked in taking over the world, but then Brain interferred
me: hehe

wow . . . we started talking about housing and then the conversation wandered over to discussing the merits of "Pinky and the Brain" . . . yay for random tangents!

For once I actually had a good Valentine's Day! *gasp* I was awoken at around 1:00 this afternoon when my mom called---I talked to my parents and my brother for about a half an hour and then went back to sleep, awaking at 3:30ish . . .

I opened the parcel that my parents had sent me: my brother gave me some Jelly Bellys to fill my jelly bean machine, my mom gave me the Valentine Beanie Baby bear (cute poem--"His heart is red and full of love/He cares for you so give him a hug/Keep him close when you're feeling blue/Feel the love he has for you"--aww!!), and my dad gave me Russell Stovers chocolates in a pretty heart box . . . 

Chris' away message said "looking for sharp pointy objects" so I asked him if I wanted to know why . . . here's part of the conversation:

chris: yes
chris: as a matter of fact we are making you a surprise
chris: so i can't tell you yet
me: oh dear . . . now I'm worried . . .
chris: you'll love it so much
me: :-)
chris: but we need a sharp object
me: who's in on this?
chris: [vicky] and I
chris: i need a saw
chris: vicky just about cut her fingers off with a scissors
chris: :-\
me: that's not good! I have hydrogen peroxide . . .
vicky: i think i
vicky: qill live he just wont let me touch anything sharp
vicky: *will
me: ok--that's good
me: I also have VeggieTale Band-Aid's

chris: do you have any knives?
me: no
me: I have plastic spoons, though
me: haha
chris: hmmm
chris: i'm thinking that won't work for our project
me: they're for tea and cocoa

After I made myself some English breakfast tea (sadly, I had no milk :( ), I noticed that his away message now said "riding to michelle's room" . . . I thought nothing of it and kept listening and singing along to my Josh debut CD . . . about 10 minutes later, I hear the sound of "hoofbeats" and a knock on the door---I opened my door to find Lori, Dan, Vicky, and Chris holding a hollowed out coconut and using it to "ride" a horse a la Monty Python!!!! I told them they were all awesome (after giving Vicky some hydrogen peroxide) and then tried the coconuts myself--so much fun! :D I've always wanted to do that, and it's amazing that I've found friends here that are as insane as I am and want to do these things too--I love you guys!! *HUGS*

Fast forward to after dinner---Dana, Erin, and I watched "Charlie Brown Valentine" in Dana's room and then Sarah and Emily joined us in my room to watch Princess Diaries and an episode of CSI that Dana had taped . . .

Thanks guys---you made today special and made me feel loved *HUGS*
