Catch Up

Remember that I post photos on the my Flickr account. They aren’t very good lately, because my batteries died in my camera and I’ve only been using the iPhone camera. But at least you can get the gist. Since lat Sunday… I’ve been really exhausted. Poeple in my dept have been sick, so I hope [...]

This could help uninsured women like me

I am copying this from my stepsister’s website: Posting mostly to remind myself to do this, but also to share with others who think it’s a good idea. For those of you who feel differently, I acknowledge and respect your difference of opinion and you may scroll on past. Make a donation to Planned Parenthood [...]

I like it when people treat me to dinner

My prof had a few medievalists over for a yummy dinner tonight. During a conversation about tv shows and movies, he asked if we had ever seen a series that was great but only lasted half of a season and he never saw it when it was on but has the DVD, and it’s called…  [...]

Where did it go?

I think I’ve lost at least two shirts since coming out here. They must’ve been swallowed up at the hotel, because I haven’t had them since moving into the apt, and I am disappointed. I was going to purchase one replacement (robot hugs) but it is no longer available. That makes me sad.

Social Butterfly

I had told myself that I had to finish my transcriptions as well as my translations before I could do anything tonight. But I was told by another medievalist that we aren’t allowed to work on Saturday night. So I joined a bunch of history grads to watch the Ohio-USC football game. However, the game [...]

What to do with my walls

I have 4.3 rather tall walls that, once painted, will still need some spicing up. I’m having a tough time deciding between “art” and “photography”. I might be able to swing both if I group them on different walls. Opinions? Art: Theme One: Botanicals (larger prints) Art: Theme Two: Graphic (smaller prints) Photography: Theme Three: [...]

Ducks in a row

Today I was hired at Starbucks.  The location is about 2 blocks from school (which makes it the third closest Starbucks; hehe).  I just needed to earn money and the opportunity came first. With proctoring on occassion (5 hrs on Sat) and my work study (3 hr/wk) , I should be ok.  In the opinion [...]

Familiar Face!

Today Bjorn was in town for a meeting.  Flew in this morning and left tonight, so we met up for dinner.  It was awesome! Since I couldn’t make it to training this time around, the tutoring company offered me a position as a proctor for exams.  Not a bad deal at all.  I have a [...]

Not so ashamed I was Doogie Howser fan in my youth

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TusJ8HSLaUs NPH cracks me up.  And if you haven’t purchased Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog from iTunes, maybe this trailer will convince you to spend the $5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXI3obHfwgU If you *are* a Dr. Horrible fan, you can buy the music album off iTunes as well.  And if you are the ultimate nerd, you can convert the [...]

Me Want Insurance

I want insurance pretty badly. 1) My vision correction is definitely not up to par. It’s probably good I don’t have to drive. And I have been squirreling my last pair of contacts, since it’s been three years since I bought any. 2) I really should see a chiropractor. My back and neck are consistently [...]

Entry Whatever: Dinner Plans Fell Through

My professor had invited the medievalists over to his house for dinner, but he has been mildly ill and doesn’t want to spread it to us through his cooking.  Fair enough.  However, I had already gotten ready and such.  Oh, well.  Maybe I’ll wear this for my interview at Starbucks (exciting) tomorrow. I have my [...]

Entry #15: My first extra-curricular social outing

I spent most of the day trying to start my homework. This evening, I met up with a few folk from the history dept at a nearby bar.  They were meeting to watch UFC on PPV.  However, even though someone (I don’t know who) had called to verify, the bar wasn’t actually showing the fight.  [...]
