and now, selections from my family's descent into madness:

Tessa: the kittens look like bats
Tessa: uno m
PadmacLynne: in what way?
Tessa: they look like bats when they crawl up your leg
Tessa: in the way that bats look like bear cubs
PadmacLynne: i am terrified.
PadmacLynne: take pictures.
Tessa: you look someday, i kid you? no.
PadmacLynne: when did you become a russian man, trying to sell me watches out of the trunk of his car?
Tessa: teehee
Tessa: this i won't tell you
PadmacLynne: you are precious, like expensive cheese.
Tessa: what is wrong with you
PadmacLynne: i comprehend little, and i have many more hours of work to do.
PadmacLynne: spin!
Tessa: maybe that's why you comprehend little
Tessa: loser
PadmacLynne: i got you good present. it eats flesh.
Tessa: oh jesus shit
Tessa: other peoples?
PadmacLynne: mayyyyybe.
Tessa: you wonder why i don't like christmas
PadmacLynne: no, i hate christmas.
PadmacLynne: all federally mandated gift-dispersal holidays upset me.

PadmacLynne: i would rather just buy people things all the time.
PadmacLynne: i've heard that.
PadmacLynne: from a squirrel.
PadmacLynne: (but he lies)

so. it snowed today. and i fell asleep in class.

actually, let's start at the beginning. woke up, exhausted and congested. think i had a nosebleed at some point last night. took tylenol allergy and sinus. blew my nose a lot. coughed stuff up. felt like shit. walked to new testament with mgg, and cotinued to feel like shit. blew my nose a lot. i only have 5 vicodin left. i need to save them for bedtimes. got out of class, visited mgg, got a special permission number for death and the afterlife. added death and the afterlife... now i actually have 12 credits for next semester. need to get more special permission numbers later. okay. at this point, it was snowing. i got on a bus for college ave, went to college ave, was about an hour early for class. so i went to the student center to get chapstick and hot chocolate. (because i was cold and tired, i didn't want to be kept up all night, and coffee gives me cold sores.) (and my lips are chapped) (and i figured the freezing wind would chap them further) oh, and adam and amy were at the student center. i said hi. okay, then i got on a bus to ride from the student center to scott hall, because i didn't want to walk in the snow. so. still 45 minutes 'til class. go into the building, sit on the steps, chug the hot chocolate, nap sitting. my TA from my other history class comes by, we chat for a few minutes, and then i go back to sleeping. then i walk into the class, where i sleep some more. fill out evaluation, sleep. then i listen to a lecture, occasionally dozing off. yay. i get on a bus, i come home, i set alarm clock for 5:30, take off my shoes and jacket, and go to sleep. i wake up at 6:03. i have a shift at 6:00. so i call loree, ask them to call C4, throw on my shoes and jacket, and walk, in the freeeeeezing cold, to C4. i get to C4. i'm supposed to be at Dcent. (which is a. in the opposite direction, and b. much closer to my house than C4.) i ask the consultant at C4 to call loree to call dcent to tell the person i am relieving that i am, in fact, on my way. so then i walk to Dcent. nearly slip on some ice. arrive at 6:30. a full half-hour late for my shift. so i will be getting demerits for this. which bites, but i have lots of merits, so it's not that big of a deal. oh, and can you just retroactively imagine that every.... third line throughout that was "and then i felt like shit" or "I still felt like shit" or "state of being? shitty." while you're at it, project lines like those through the rest of this. okay. so i get here at 6:30, have 2 people put away their powerades, and have one woman put her coffee outside. (which she is disgruntled about. like every person i have ever told. i hate users.) then i do my cleaning. then i read my work email, and regretted not being able to take the open overnight. it's from 1 am to 8:15 am on monday. i then would have to work a shift from 8:30 'til 9:50, when i have a class, then back to work at 11:10, then another shift from 11:45-2:45, then i could run home and sleep until class at 4:30, but i don't think that would work. maybe if i slept all day sunday. where was i? right. then i did my cleaning, then i read livejournal, realizing that i am in no mood to do any little surveys, although i promise i will soon, it's just that i have no energy to be insightful or funny, and you probably don't want the results of my angry, tired surveys. uh. yeah. then i commented on this thread in [ profile] sidhe79's journal. and i thought i'd reprint it here. because i'm an ass. )

oh, and a little while ago, adam came in, looking for amy. and i feel like shit.

right. gonna go rant in private for a bit.

so, this is the last post that will be part of the journal assignment for dev us 1. now what i must do is make a text file that puts these posts in chronological order, because otherwise they don't make sense. yeah. then i need to put that file on my eden account, then go to a computer that can print, and print it. yay.

see, many of the macs in c4, including the consultant mac i am currently using, have the wrong printers on them, and whereas before i could just open up print center and fix that, now i need system access to do that. which is incredibly irritating. if you are going to put entirely useless queues on the macs, at least leave me a way to fix your fuck-up. grr.

also, the horrible cough is still horrible. i'm overlapping doses of sudafed, so i'm all twitchy and bird-like. however, at 6, people are coming over, and i am getting drunk. whee!

uh. that's about it.

today i took that terrifying midterm in dev us 1. and yesterday i took that fluffy little bunny of a midterm in anthro of religion. basically, it all comes down to this: in order to make a boy into a man, first you need to remove him from his mother (sometimes beating her senseless in the process), injure him in an emasculating fashion (usually just circumcision, or symbolic wound in the arm that bleeds officially menstrual blood), treat him as a woman, (possibly to the extent of anal rape, often just forced oral sex, or just calling him a nancy boy) and then he can be (symbolically) anally born from one of the older men, enter the lowest rung of the male hierarchy, earn the right to have sex, and later, (usually after getting subincised) the right to have sex with young boys. yay! oh, and rites of passage for women usually amount to: "oh, you got your period? okay. now you are extra dirty. don't touch that. or that."

it's amazing how well this works. and by works, i mean fits the patterns.

i was thinking about doing a big irritating quiz thing, like kt did recently, but i can't focus. at all. i'm sick. i have an appointment monday at willets to get antibiotics. right now, i am dizzy. my head is wobbling.. um, it moves, slowly, waving. i feel like seaweed. gentle. i don't think i have a fever. and i know i don't have chills. i have 4 and a half hours of work left today. and at 4 i need to take more dayquil. i'm almost done with the box. i'm making so many typos. warren ellis did a spider jerusalem thing today. it made me happy. my right pinky isn't working right. it's just twitching when i try to use it. not that it's normally a really dextrous digit, but still. i'm coherent, right? i think i'm being coherent, but i'm not sure. i need to read for anthropology, which has a midterm on monday, and i really need to study for development of the us, which is tuesday. the midterm scares me. it's two essay questions, from a set of 9 that they gave us. so these need to be phenomenal. basically, i need to prepare, well, at least 6 essays . technically i could prepare 5. i should have at least 5 good ones. and another 1 or 2. maybe it's the dayquil. i just don't feel very good. and i think i'm hallucinating mildly, because things keep on looking a bit too vivid in color. um. at least i haven't coughed spoke too soon. really hurts to cough. i think i hadn't coughed because i hadn't said anything in over an hour. because as soon as i started talking, i could feel the cough coming. i got one of the new 20s. it's neat. jackson's shoulders are actually embossed. and. yeah. i think i'm done for a bit.

oh, and today i had a midterm in new testament that i'm worried about, i upgraded some software, took an id quiz in dev us 1, and i am all hopped up on dayquil. my mouth is dry, and i can't concentrate. which is part of why i'm worried about the midterm and id quiz. i should go eat something. i have work in 2 hours (so i'll probably post again then.)

oh, and go see Kill Bill.
