And for fun, a conversation I had with myself while walking yesterday.
Me: I'm going to have some cereal when I get home!
Me: But what kind of cereal did I buy the other day?
Me: *ponders* Oh yeah, Rice Krispies...
Me: "Oh, that is so lame."

This is my still not studying for my last death final in hydro, which is likely to be the hardest test I've ever taken.

Shopping complete!

or: How Facebook turned out to be okay after all.

Written in the computer lab of Woodward on a day while working on a fourteen fifteen hour lab. My eyes feel like they're going to pop out of my skull.

P.S. Follett rules, come visit us!

P.P.S. I want to make sweet, sweet love to Cross Patch.

P.P.P.S. Sewell is okay too. Or at least, this one kid.

i cant find your voice and the words you speak and its terrifying [13 Apr 2006|08:54pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

Alright then, I've been offered two Coastal Fellowships. Now I can't decide which to do. Help ensues.

1. Characterization of stream cycling nitrogen. I know that sounds kind of boring. And it might be. It involves probably half lab work with measuring nitrogen levels and junk. But it is related to geology somewhat, relates back to my aquatics expertise from Envirothon, and I just really freakin' like streams. The people running it seem really cool, and this kid I know did a project with them a few years ago and said they were really good.

2. Something about the sod webworm. Sounds like of gross? Maybe, but I'd be working mostly with the adults webworm, which is a moth. However, the larvae is some clear worm thing that is pretty gross. Mostly fieldwork, collecting, identifying. The people doing it seem really cool and laid back. The guy running the project reminded me a bit of Krueger from Seinfeld.

So one is a bit more interesting to me in subject, but less interesting in its boring lab work aspect, is generally the gist of the argument.

Opinions? I should probably get back to them by tomorrow or something.

Dear Everyone,
I read on NBC.com that they are definitely moving the bridge demolition to next Tuesday the 18th. Take note of this appropriately.

Dude, it's Christmas [25 Dec 2005|04:28pm]
[ mood | festive! ]

So every year I buy Christmas cards for everyone, fill them out, and give/mail them to everyone. Anyway, this year I got as far as buying before busyness/lazyness took over. So here's my way of saying Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah (sp?), Chrismahannukwanzkakah, Holidays...etc. to all...of you. Have a loverly day, and I love you all.

Psycho Right Wing Christian Fundamentalism Class 101 [06 Nov 2005|10:37pm]
[ mood | sleepy ]

Tomorrow Brian and I are filming a movie and many extras are needed. You don't need to be able to act, you just need to chase Brian around and look angry. You will be playing a psycho right wing Christian fundamentalist, so dressing appropriately (preppy, conservative, simply) is a plus. We will hopefully start around 3:30 and hopefully be filming primarily in Independence. If you are interested, leave a message here or call me (4870184) and I'll call you tomorrow. But, since we probably won't get enough people, chances are if you're reading this I'm going to call you to bug you tomorrow anyway.

Any takers? [28 Sep 2005|04:40pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

I have an extra ticket to the Porcupine Tree show tonight at Lupo's, 9pm (doors at 8). We are leaving campus around 6:30, passing through Coventry, and then on to Providence. Cost is $20. Call me (4870184) if this sparks your interest. Pronto. Save a good Mike a wasted twenty bucks.

Scratch that. The show was fucking amazing times ten. Amazing. Steven Wilson is a goddamn genius. The man did not wear shoes. And thank the Lord he got a haircut, he looks decidedly less creepy than many pictures I've seen. Anyway, SW's side project Blackfield opened and were awesome, sounded like old Porcupine Tree stuff. Then PT came on, songs I recall them playing were Arriving Somewhere But Not Here, Deadwing, Halo, Lazarus, The Start of Something Beautiful, Open Car, Blackest Eye, Sound of Muzak, Heartattack in a Layby (!!!!), Radioactive Toy, So-Called Friend, Don't Hate Me and a few I didn't recognize. There were quite a few people who were probably on acid, including one guy who got dragged out by security about five minutes after the show started. We were in the second row of people from the stage, and I can now say I have been within three feet of Steven Wilson. Many of the people there were "40-something guitar nuts." That is all, I had almost forgotten how unbelievably awesome Porcupine Tree is. I'm going to bed.

[ mood | stressed ]

Write 20 random facts about yourself, then tag the same amount of people as minutes it takes you to write the facts. If you're tagged, it's your turn.

1. I think shoes, allergy medicine, and sleep are for the weak. Of course I usually use two of them.
2. I'm not really sure what geologists actually do, but I hope its as fun as it looks (this fun).
3. I licked dolomite on Tuesday.
4. I sleep with headphones on every night, and only sometimes wake up choking to death.
5. I should be writing a paper right now. But I'm not.
6. I like pictures. A lot. Even if I barely know you, if you have pictures online, I've probably looked through them.
7. I wash my face with sulfur because if I don't, I continue to have D.P.
8. Tori and I are starting our own movie sorority. The requirement to get in is to be either Tori or I.
9. Brian is starting his own fraternity where the hazing involves stapling everyone's cocks together. Now that's brotherhood.
10. I hate loud noises except for good music and thunder.
11. Even when I was a baby I would spit out anything with meat in it. Gross.
12. I am probably the worst cook in existence, except maybe a baby trying to make pudding.
13. I won the town spelling bee in 5th grade, but spell check has ruined a lot of that for me now.
14. I think Vin Diesel is a total creep.
15. The word of the week is 'bloody' and the phrase of the week is 'what/where/when/who the devil...'
16. I do, in fact, know what hematite is.
17. I don't like spending money, I prefer squirrelling it away or spending it in small amounts. Unfortunately, this can tend to add up.
18. Sometimes even I'm kind of surprised that I don't smoke pot.
19. I don't like to argue or form strong opinions about things that I don't know a lot about.
20. I hate wearing long sleeves, especially sweaters, and double especially turtleneck sweaters.

I tag--Nile, Rico, Casey, and Tainsh, if you read LJ at all. Bryn, I can't believe you managed 101 of these.

be happy that they've made you a celebrity [22 Jun 2005|03:18pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

Maybe I got 2 hours of sleep last night. Maybe I got 4 hours the night before. Maybe I napped at a mall in Boston. Maybe I was stuck hanging around Boston for 16 hours. Maybe I blew 50 bucks in one day. Maybe my feet are fucking killing me. Maybe all that walking and sweating and napping gave me horrible hair. Maybe I was exhausted and I look it.

But definitely, most definitely, it was all totally worth it.

the greatest moment of my entire life, thus farCollapse )

Washington Oak grad class of '98? Read this. [12 May 2005|12:48pm]
[ mood | amused ]

Context: 6th grade. Rissy Kelly, Melanie D'Acchioli, and Sally Paul share an utter obsession with Monty Python and the Holy Grail. With last years Abe Lincoln play under their belts, they decide to tackle a new project. They recruit their friends to play the many roles only to have many of them drop out in favor of recess, forcing everyone involved to take multiple roles. The cast I remember...
Rissy as Princess Lily, Sir Bedemere, and Guy 2.
Melanie as Queen Elizabeth and various
Sally as Sir Potato Chip
Russell Ortelt as King Charles
Meghan S. and Beth McArdle as Rover, the Dragon
All other parts are lost to me, so maybe you guys will remember a bit. Some other points: Sir Potato Chip wore gold pants, the monk's cardboard said things like the title of the play, "The Quest Begins," and "The End." Also, at the time we thought this astoundingly funny and ourselves astoundingly clever.

Enjoy.

The Middle Ages: A PlayCollapse )

P.S. Those of you with a sharp eye will catch the complete scene ganked from Holy Grail. Word.
P.P.S. Yes, we performed this on stage for the entire 6th grade.

Sans beard, of course. Hopefully.

Roses are red, violets are blue, you are a bread, I am love you.
How are you? Not bad, I'm just a cactus.

I love going on 3 hours of sleep. And art projects that take 12 hours to complete, especially when half the class glued some paper onto a board and probably took like an hour tops.

No more class! It's very nice out. I would like to play Frisbee/catch but I really need a nap. Or I can just sleep in tomorrow. Sleep is for the weak!

Speaking of rocks, I have geology in ten minutes. Also, Journey rocks. And Throwback. I like rocks.

It's 1:07am. I'm writing a paper. And by writing a paper, I mean updating my LiveJournal. I think this paper would have been done a long time ago if I hadn't fixed my internet today. Fucking internet, stop being so entertaining!

[ mood | lazy ]

- On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first thirty-five songs on the list (no matter how cheesy or embarrassing).
- Write down one line (or two) of the song. Try to avoid putting the song title in the line.
- Have your friends comment and see if they know the songs. (NO CHEATING!)
- When someone guesses correctly, strike out the line and list the correct name of the song next to it. (don't strike out the line until the song's ARTIST and NAME have both been guessed correctly!)

lyric game...thingCollapse )

Good luck, suckers.

Spitting out babies? [11 Mar 2005|07:10am]
[ mood | all-nightered ]

Despite having little sleep, no academic ambition, some fucking cold days, and being awake for the past 24+ hours (will be at least 36 before I get to sleep) this week was the most amazing Hawesome week ever. Thats right. Hawesome, with a capital "H."

I support Canadians.

P.S. I just got a Mountain Dew to help me through the day and won a free song, sucka.

P.P.S. The moral of the story is that things are a lot funnier at 3:15am than in more coherent times.

Pictures are likely to be up tomorrow, upon which time I shall post a link.
