I never do the "Writer's Block" things that appear on the main LJ page . . . but I felt I needed to do this one:

These days, there's a holiday for everything from punctuation to pie. If you could create your own holiday, what would it be and how would you celebrate?

[ profile] ladymoony and I *have* done this. Because we are geeky. (And there needed to be a Who-liday.)

And now I need to finish my tea (or transfer to a travel mug) and head to class.

Senior Week has been rather fun so far: lots of movies (including quite a bit of JA ::joys::), crafting, general fun, and a few new "members" interested in ODD. ^_^

Remember the Jane Austen heroine quiz I posted a while back? (I've included the link as you probably don't remember) I've also taken the "Who is your Jane Austen hero?" one, but I keep forgetting to post it, so here it is! Any guesses?

I could never love a man who was out of his wits )

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 )


lilyofshalott: (So my fantasy)

We've been having very odd weather lately here in PA--Sunday was in the high 60s, yesterday was in the 30s and low 40s, dropping down to the 20s at night (and my Weather Channel toolbar said we were supposed to get flurries last night, too! Yay for snow.) It was about 25* when I left for class this morning, and I think it's supposed to get up to the mid 40s in the afternoon . . . usually it stays in the low 40s and 50s in autumn, but I guess the weather's just confused . . . hehe

US History was *quite* amusing today--we had to read the last few articles in our "textbook" critiquing (that doesn't look right . . .) women's magazines in the 1940s-1960s (the book is a collection of articles from these magazines), so we were discussing these articles today. While we were talking about the four main critique points, we stumbled unwittingly into pretty much a full-out debate about the merit of women's magazines--most of the people who were offering opinions expressed the thoughts that the majority of people who read these magazines do so for entertainment purposes and do not slavishly follow their advice. However, there were one or two who were saying these magazines are simply the brainchild of advertising companies and pretty much implied that anyone who read them was a brainless follower of mass media . . . needless to say, I was chuckling throughout much of the class . . .

I think I shall make myself a cup of English Breakfast--yay for tea :)
(Dawn, Rehta, and anyone else who might know: do you know when they're going to start the renewals on FoJG?)

And now for a happy quiz (I *heart* Quizilla . . . and . . . waaaay too much):
You're not Coffee, you're Tea.
You're not Coffee, you're Tea!

What Kind of Coffee are You?
brought to you by Quizilla
*laughs hysterically* Trust me to get "tea" on a coffe quiz . . . how true is that? :D (although it rather looks like iced tea because it's really clear . . . ooh, or maybe it's Lady Grey--yum!)

and the sad thing is, I made myself a tea icon a while ago(maybe I really should get a paid account) . . . hehe

**Madame Minister of Tea and Toast** (as dubbed by Erin--she decided the members of Omicron should have nifty titles . . .

According to Merriam-Webster, "Angst(n) : a feeling of anxiety, apprehension, or insecurity" Yup, that seems to apply . . .

So, my day definitely didn't start off on the right foot today (as if days had feet in the first place . . .) I totally overslept--not only did I miss my alarm, but I missed my roomie's alarm too . . . I woke up when I heard her closing the door to leave for class (we're in the same class--evil O. Chem.)--it sounded like she was trying to be all quiet so she wouldn't wake me up, but then she told me in class that she was making all kinds of noise so I would wake up (and apparently I yell at her when she tries to wake me up . . . definately didn't know that and apologised about five times) . . . so I had about 20 minutes to get ready for class, in which I managed to get dressed, print off the lecture notes, and make tea. However, I upset my travel mug and spilled almost all of my tea on the floor about 5 mintutes before class started . . . so I had to use all my tissues to try to sop it up (I basically just put them in the gigantic tea puddle) which wasn't good because I got a cold when I went home for break this past weekend . . . and on top of that, I didn't understand today's O.Chem. lecture AT ALL . . . we got our exams back from last Friday and I definitely did a lot worse than the first exam (I knew I was going to have a bunch of points taken off because I messed up two of the 10pt questions entirely, but I didn't think 'twould be *that* bad . . .) . . . then I stayed behind a few minutes to clean up my tea puddle, which thankfully Erin helped me with (*huggles Erin*) . . . now to work on Genetics for my exam on Friday so I don't fail that test too . . . :\

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

lilyofshalott: (Grobanite)

hmm . . . I think I should update . . . hehe. *Points at icon* Look, it's one of my new ones! :D . . . Let's see, where did I leave off? Ah, yes, Friday (the 13th--dun dun dun): After the "flooding" of the lab on Thursday, nothing really exciting (or horrible) happened on Friday. 'Twas actually rather slow at the lab, if I recall correctly . . . my mom and I were going to go to the movie theatre to see The Princess Diaries, but then we remembered that the Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics were on and watched them with my dad. My dad and I *loved* the introduction, where James Earl Jones' distinctive voice was narrating about Ancient Greece with the theme from Jurassic Park in the background---go John Williams!! [sidenote--I wonder what he would have thought if at the time he wrote his Olympic themes for the '72 and '96 Games he would have known that they would become the "unofficial" themes for all following Games? . . . . ok, that was a rather confusing sentence, and I think I confused myself too] Of course, since 'twas Friday night and I didn't have to get up early on Sat, I stayed up rather late and read fanfiction . . . *looks sheapish* (is that even spelled right? *ponders*)

Saturday was fun, as I had my birthday party with my Wellsboro friends. Sarah, Karen, and G-Girl came for pizza and movies--Low-C came for about 15 minutes during her lunch break right after everyone else came and we talked for a little bit on my porch. She didn't have my present wrapped yet, but she gave me a pretty circlet-thingy from the Laurel Festival as a sort of birthday hat/crown :). I let Sarah, Karen, and G-Girl pick out one of my CDs to listen to while we ate (more like demolished . . . we also had help from Alexander) our pizza--'twas a unanimous vote for Norah Jones because that was the only CD they recognised (as the rest of my CD collection is various soundtracks, John Williams scores, Enya, Sarah Brightman, and Josh *waves flags for film scores and crossover*) We talked about fun times in elementary and middle school while listening to my CD of randomness--I hadn't realised how much I missed talking with them . . . At around 4 or so (they'd come over at 1ish) we hopped into Sarah's truck and headed to Video King to rent something. We didn't find anything we really wanted to watch, but G-Girl had brought her copy of The Reduced Shakespeare Company's "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare", which was hilarious! 'Tis a 90-minute video featuring three actors presenting Shakespeare's entire works in front of a live audience . . . they don't actually act all of the plays though--they do all the histories as one (Amer.) football game and merge the comedies into a "mega-play" type thing . . . I'd recommend it ('twould be great for a SU movie night if we can find a copy--I bet the library might have one) . . .

excitement on Main St. and why I like tea )

I think this entry's gone on long enough, but I have just one more thing--I'm contemplating changing my default icon to this:
           Any thoughts?
Oh, and if anyone was wondering, I only used an lj-cut because this post was really long without it and I didn't want to take up so much space on your Friends pages . . .
