A few tidbits for a Tuesday Afternoon…

April 7, 2009

I’m procrastinating to all hell. Why you ask? Because I have a great idea for a short story that I haven’t worked on because I have myself convinced that I need to be working on well…work. So, I do my best, read a couple articles here or there and something on Facebook or here in the blogosphere catches my eye…and I’m gone. Done.

Catch this undergrad. It’s imperative that you look where you’re going when you decide to climb onto an elevator. That way you won’t tick off the grad student that although not in charge of your grade, can get a hold of the guy or gal in charge of your grade.

Two delightful weekends with bf has made me skippy. We put together Easter baskets for my nephews this weekend and thanks to my man, I am officially the coolest auntie on the planet.

Mental note to all you men out there btw: If you KNOW that you disagree with your fine lookin’ honey on things like politics, don’t bring it up. ESPECIALLY if you’re in a long distance relationship allowing her a bit more freedom. That freedom can come in and bite you in the butt. Case in point this weekend. Now, has Michael Steele said some dumb crap: Yes. Is he a complete nimrod? I don’t think so…at least not yet. Michael don’t steer me wrong man, I’m routing for you, fuck it, the whole damn state of Maryland is routing for you. We recognize you might be the fall guy, but we’re hopeful for the best.

I finished the Wicked Years yesterday. I haven’t decided if I will review all three books or just stick to the last two I read or just do one big review. It will come eventually. For now I’m reading Denis Leary’s book, very fun.

News on my big test: I passed. Thankfully. More news on what’s next in the never ending hoops that I need to jump through to get through graduate school with my doctorate to come.

Speaking of which: I’m contemplating compiling a book. Titled like most of my threads that I write about school: Tales of a Wannabe Grad School Dropout. For those of you that are out there reading that are grad school people like me, let me know you’re feelings.

The weather is typical Maryland hellish weather these days. It’s screwing with my system.


I’ll Never Be a Cold Weather Baby…

March 2, 2009

So, my man has always had this vision that despite the climate that we will go to these exotic places and be these exotic people and share our knowledge of our respective subjects around the world. I let him sort of have this dream with the hopes that he will eventually get to the point that I’m at that a beach house by the bay would be nice. That 70 degrees every day despite it being January or June would also be nice. I haven’t quite gotten him there, but he’ll get there I tell ya he will!

It snowed about 5 inches in the Baltimore area today. Although it was nice to sleep in, and it was nice to get some work done here at home, I must admit that Atlantis commercial looks better and better the lack of warm weather and the more hot chocolate that I drink. I loved that my neighbor (I live in a building with a lot of nurses) goes, “You okay? You need a scraper?” as I’m struggling to clean the couple of inches of snow off my car. It’s funny as I’m going through stuff as much as I’m proud that I’m being so independent and so on part of me wonders when flipflops will come back into style.

So, in the end the only thing I can figure out is…any beach town university need a theoretical physicist? 🙂

Something to see…
