    Hm, speaking of weather, I seem to be looking out at about an inch of snow. Not enough to cancel college classes, though. :(

    Speaking of words, I feel kinda smart when I run out a bunch of scientific words in my biology group project and the others in the group ask for an easier word because they don't comprehend the lingo. [face_whistling]

    Do you mean New York? And...really? They ask you how to spell "ma'am"... Come one! I could spell that one in my sleep!

    York, as in York, Pennsylvania. About four hours away from New York, going southwest. :p

    But, yes, I was asked to spell "ma'am". And the kicker? The guy who asked to spell it then asked what an apostrophe was!

    Wah! That's way too far for me! I'm a Jersey girl! :p

    But...are you sure the guy who asked what an apostrophe was went to school? I think I learned those punctuation marks in.......first grade? Maybe second?

    I'm starting to doubt it. I even had to type things for him. [face_plain]

    Well, I'm all moved in. Still am in need of a microwave. And a couch. And a bed that doesn't have a busted box spring. And some end tables, shelves, desk chairs...

    This weekend I get my stereo and a microwave and this week I get an ugly couch. Still looking for a better bed, and I need to arrange with my family days where I can borrow a truck and get a few pieces of furniture.

    I'll make sure to take a picture of the ugly couch once it arrives. It's like that ugly couch in your grandparents' living room with the clear plastic slipcovers on it. Classic ugly couch.

    At least it's a comfortable ugly couch, though.

    As long it's not dirty, it'll work I guess. Right? :)

    I'm happy to hear that you finally moved and have your own appartement with your stuff inside. It feels a lot better to start working on your own things/rooms than have to wait for it the whole time, isn't it? :)

    Well, I hauled the couch up the steps and it's in my living room, so now, my place has a bit more furniture. Still need my drafting table, computer desk, chairs, some end tables and a bookshelf, but the place is looking more like home. I hung up my HR Giger poster in the living room, hung some posters around the place, and got a chair outside on the stoop.

    Slowly but surely, this place is coming together and feeling more like home.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope that you all don't wake up tomorrow with hangovers. [:D]

    If you don't drink alcohol, you don't get hangovers. Simple as that. ;)

    It's my brother's birthday today and he got sloshed on Irish whiskey. Guess he's gonna end up with a hangover!

    Me, however, I don't have any alcohol unless I decide to get hammered on Listerine.

    Do you know the song "I got a hangover"? Nice beat, but horrid text.

    A song with horrid texts doesn't sound like one I'd like to listen to!

    I agree. I mean who would want to listen to a song where one if not all of the "musicians" is texting the whole time?

    It's been a very long time since my last hangover since I rarely drink alcohol anymore. The last time that I did, I got a bit of a headache later on but that was it.

    Yes, we have now arrived. The GPS only sent us over old logging roads, through Sherwood Forest, over the great Comms Mountains, and under the Sea of Snowboard Posts to get here. :p

    Well, there was that too, but I guess I was asleep when we hit that part of the road. :p
