dinosaurs, cocoa krispies, and stoichiometry (oh my!)

Today I finished a stoichiometry review sheet in chemistry before the class was over.

So, I went to the cafeteria, bought some food, and went to the lobby of the main building.

I spent the next thirty minutes eating cocoa krispies in chocolate milk and reading Jurassic Park.

Sometimes I wonder how/when I got this dorky.

I'm going to be an awesome adult someday.

"Would you hit a woman with a baby?—No, I'd hit her with a brick."
-e.e. cummings

"Speak roughly to your little boy and beat him when he sneezes,
He only does it to annoy because he knows it teases."
-Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

I intend to follow the advice of my favorite authors. I think that it will turn out well.

Weekend = jam packed. (There's only one man who would dare give me the raspberry!)

Tonight I did not go and see Where the Wild Things Are. Woe.

Also, was not able to go see Ludo in concert.

A note about Ludo: they are fantastic. Heard their song Hum Along about two years ago... and I was hooked.
"Maybe you'd be kidnapped by pirates
and they would take you to their hideout
as pirates often do
but I'd find the secret map
and I would vigilante-bushwhack
through the jungles of Peru..."

Really, how could I not love them? Anyway, they would have played Broken Bride (in its entirety!) tonight, and I am very sad that I missed it. Broken Bride is a rock opera about a time traveler and his time machine and some dinosaurs and a zombie invasion and then a happy ever after. (The most delicious CD ever. Well worth the $5 on itunes.)

But, I had other things to do. Like making beef sticks with Asian Club. My hands still smell like secret beef stick sauce. 80 some pounds of beef went into making these. I think we bought an entire cow. I should be disgusted, but I'm too busy being amazed.

we're selling them tomorrow. they will be delicious. (I'm a vegetarian and I'm saying that so you know it must be true.) buy some.

And now, for something completely different:

another reason why I love everything: CHEMISTRY HOMEWORK!
Mole day is coming up! The mole, 6.02*10^23 is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. it is also a cylindrical shaped mammal that burrows into the ground.

Homework for Chemistry? MAKE A MOLE. I just got assigned to make a stuffed animal for school. Bonus points if I put silly clothes on it. ASL;KJDFAKSJF K SO EXCITED I CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE SA;SLKFALKSJFD!!!!1!!!MOLES!!! I think it is safe to assume that I will be getting an A on this assignment.

trains and moths and other things.

there was a brown moth on the floor of the train today. I poked it lightly with my sneaker. It started flying frantically. I was surprised, to say the least.

I picked it up before I got off the train and released it when I got to my stop.

it was dreadfully cold today. I hope the little moth is all right.


in other news, I'm way too excited about where the wild things are.


I hope you can see why.

there was a kid walking around in a banana costume. he stood next to me when we were at the crosswalk this morning. somebody asked him why he was a banana.

His reply?
"It's Wednesday."*

I love my school.

One of my friends asked me to send her creative writing for the literary magazine that our school publishes. I sent her this:


there once was a frog
who lived in a bog
and hopped onto a log.
he soon met a dog.
and the frog
and the dog
on the log
in the bog
were attacked by a hog
who ate them all.

the end.

I really hope she likes it.

Sprained my ankle in cross country today. I was only a block or two from school.
The boys team ran past where I was sitting. it was embarrassing.

Limping around makes me feel pathetic, so I try to walk normally. It hurts, and then I feel more pathetic.

feeling pathetic is pathetic.

*consider this the quote of the week. I'll put it in a nicer format:

"It's Wednesday."
-Freshman dressed like a banana

Dear delicious looking apple:

you were not delicious.

in addition to not being delicious, you were bruised. I am rather upset at my poor choice in fruit.

I guess you weren't that disgusting after I cut you..
but you were still more trouble then you were worth.

next time, I'm going to eat a pear, and there's nothing you can do about it. take that, only semi-delicious apple.

with love,
somebody who is no longer in danger of getting scurvy.
