SF: Entry #29

Random crap:

Animals are not accessories. They don’t below in purses, they don’t need to match your outfit. I am actually a bit disgusted at some of the dogs I’ve seen around the neighborhood, kinda like seeing that fetal pig in the biology lab, just an ick factor. I have seen dogs bred to stand about 6″-8″ tall. I saw one tiny little thing that almost tipped right over when it lifted it’s leg to pee. Can you imagine being bred so rickety that you can’t keep your balance while using the bathroom? It kinda made me laugh inside, but it’s still kinda sad. And then there are the ones that are so molecularly unstable that they quiver; they appear as if they were on the brink of death, some Brundlefly agglomeration that just won’t survive. There was this one “dog” that stood about 10″ tall, 8″ of which were leg. The legs themselves were no thicker than pretzel sticks but disproportionately longer, and it trembled as if someone trying stilts for the first time, its brundledoggy “knees” bent inward in a manner that made me cringe. It could barely walk, and some middle-aged name-brand woman was dragging it along obliviously.

Immaturity:

So, more than a few times, a classmate has rubbed the rest of the class the wrong way by seeking attention through verbose injections about things that they know. This grubbing for attention has been deemed immature by my classmate Dan. A discussion has come to pass concerning a response to such behavior, and the conclusion was to respond to immature behavior with immature behavior. Dan has proposed the “wedgie” and I suggested the “yokozuna” as an alternative. Either could be accompanied by a resounding “vae victus!”

Back to school:

(starring Rodney Dangerfield) We had our “midterm” today, which was our last grammar exam. It was reassuring that everyone was devastated by it. I felt my average level of despair, which was proportionately better than how everyone else felt. After the exam, several of us went for lunch/drinks and had a fun gab session. After that, I walked around for a couple hours until the lecture at 4pm. After that, we hung out at the convivium for nearly 3 hours (just enough for me to collect to whole set of mosquito bites). Then we went out for drinks/food. It was a rather nice evening, but I’m glad to just be sitting on the couch right now. I uploaded some photos.

This garnered some laughs this evening.

I think that’s it for now. I don’t wanna think no more.

PS. I totally slept through an earthquake last night. Actually, I slept through a lot. I guess the people upstairs were really loud, and Chad had to go upstairs about 4:30 am and ask them to be quiet. Minutes later, there was an earthquake. I slept through it. The earthquake was enough to throw off most people in class today. It was such a weird day for everyone. My train was 20 minutes delayed this morning, and there was a verbal argument that I thought was going to evolve into a physical fight, but it moved into another train car before anything started. My friend Lauren from class said she saw a big chicken hanging out in someone’s lawn near campus today (I guess there were two more chickens sighted). She also received a package today that had been cut open, nothing removed, but a dingy but new bottle of Bath and Body Works lotion and five mixed tapes labeled in English and Chinese has been inserted into the package before it had been resealed. Weird day.
