|10:21 am - Ah, LJ: a miscellany|
Today, I am happy that I wrote that stationary about how we don't allow people to "Test Out" of the DP based on previous experience and "advanced age". Especially when that experience appears to come in the form of spirits telling you to drop loaves of bread down wells and the advanced age in question is 47.
I had the day from hell at work yesterday, and expect today will be no different.
I have a fear in the pit of my stomach about classes starting tomorrow. . . and I have to go pay my tuition.
I am feeling like I have somehow been disastrously out of touch with ADF's membership for the past three or four years.
I want to watch a bad movie in a good theater with some friends. Hell, I'll settle for a good movie, if anyone knows one. Anyone up for Pick of Destiny late on Thursday night? There's a 10 PM showing.
Please, Notre Dame, suck as badly as you know you do! LSU better not embarrass their conference like Michigan did.
I will send the article on miscarriages I wrote to those who wanted it.
I have come to the conclusion that I am exhausted.
And I'm never going to manage to read everyone's entries from the past couple of days if I don't get to it very, very soon. Promise I will.
I have this sinking feeling that there are about 3 full pages of people posting drunken "Happy New Year" sentiments or rants that I'm going to have to dig through to get back to Dec. 29, when I last read my friend's list.

I haven't posted anything, so don't worry about catching up with me. I'm contemplating it, maybe, in a few days or so. My life has become one batch of proofreading after another (I love it, though, so who's complaining), interspersed with heart palpitations, international relations theory, and wanting to strangle people for having Piercing Nigerian Voices.
Not that interesting, I'm afraid.
I'm thinking about you, though. So take care of yourself.
Sounds like an exciting life. I'm suddenly sad that such a post or set of posts won't be available to me to read.
I challenge you to make a good story out of that and post it in the future. :)
I'd like to read the miscarriage article, in case I hadn't mentioned it previously.
The late showing is at 10 PM. That's a very late showing, but it's not like any of us have anything to do on Friday. . . like work or school (or both).
Carriage Place dollar theatre, here we come :)
My New Year's entry was a party and a half. I was arguably drunk, but... UGH. I hope I never have to write an entry like that AGAIN.
Anyway, no fear about new class, boy. New classes are thrilling! You've got a whole quarter of new and hopefully interesting material ahead of you, and if it's a small class, you've also got the very real potential to make a lot of new friends, hand-picked for you by the Grand High Muckety-Muck of Class Assignation. Big classes offer even more friendship potential, but those are harder because you rarely see the same person twice... But those are nice because you can sneak outside to nap in the sun and nobody, nobody will notice that you've transgressed.
*smiles* So don't you worry. It'll be a nice break from work during the day.
On a final tangent, can't make Thursday, but I do want to see that movie.
I chose Thursday specifically because you couldn't come! BURN!
(actually, I chose it because there's a bowl game tesinth
and I are watching tonight, and I don't want to miss it at the dollar theatre by waiting too long. . . it may be gone on Friday. But it sounds better to be all cliquish. Or something.)
ASL frightens me, I admit. I don't know why yet, but I expect it has to do mostly with endangering my 4.0 with something that is actually *hard* for me. I do poorly with symbols, even if I do okay with languages.
And this class will also be taking up some of my Sundays because I know just where to go to study, and they're only open on Sunday mornings. . .
I aim to ruin monitors with Coca-Cola products that have been launched out of noses.
What are the odds that Brady Quinn decides to tank his performance in order to avoid being drafted by the Raiders or Lions?
I'll give 2-1 on that.
But remember, those are only odds on his intent.
His performance will tank, regardless. He's not playing against Navy in this game. . . ND hasn't beat a good team yet.
I should appear in the dreams of more women.
Then again, I hardly get any sleep as is: if I'm in all those dreams, maybe I'll never get any. . .
I think you need some hotties in your tags.
You're gods-damned right I do.
btw, working on a response re: the Greece email you sent. . .
By "exhausted" I probably mean "clinically depressed", but as it would require going to a clinic to find out if that's the kind of depression it is, well, I think I'll go with the self-diagnosis and work my way around it.
Why pay someone to tell you something you already know? :)
And it's good to have the quick lesson :) Thank you :)
No drunkeness on my end, I'm afraid. Mostly, I posted a picture of the necklace I finished.
I haven't yet done my "So, what's up for '07" post yet.
Good. Maybe it'll post around the time I get to reading 'em :)

I thought you did a great job answering that 47 year old guy about doing the DP.... I was going to, but I was so busy that I couldn't put together enough coherent sentences at the time, and then I saw that you had replied.
I went through the exact same thing. I've already done this program and that program... do I really have to do another one???? But, the DP was different from everything else I had done, and it really did give me more of a taste for what ADF is about.
Pick of Destiny was EXCELLENT!!!!! Enjoy! (I got the CD for Christmas)
I used a default stationary that I wrote about two months ago. It's in the "form letters" section of the ADF Office.
Hehe. Maybe we need an essay of "I've done this crap before, but when I did it again, I realized *why* they wanted me to" on the site?
