Ugh. Woke up today and discovered that the awful feeling that's been accompanying me this week (lots of fatigue, a runny nose, etc.) has morphed into a full-blown illness. I don't know where these symptoms are headed (i.e, have no fixed diagnosis), but today it's more of a cold than anything else. *sad panda* Hopefully it won't be worse tomorrow.

So I skipped my afternoon class and alternatively slept and chugged orange juice, tea, water, and beef boullion to start recuperating. After that, I turned in some important homework and went to check my mail. The only good thing about today is that my new camera has arrived. Yay. (It would be louder and more emphatic, but I can't muster up that kind of energy.)

Now I'm watching Mad Men and pretending that I don't have to lead a presentation for SAO later tonight. Or that I'm behind on reading Cold Mountain. But I've got some leftover curry from yesterday's lunch, so that will be nice to have...

What is this?? A second LJ post for the day? Monumental!

Anyway, this is a story that begs to be shared. I had a short meeting in the Oaks earlier tonight. Afterwards, my roommate and I were walking back from said event. We were just chatting, not really paying attention to where we were walking, and ended up taking a tiny shortcut through the grass to get to the actual footpath. As we're walking, two runners -- a man and a woman -- turn onto the sidewalk near us and start to jog past.

Realizing that we're walking in the grass at that point, and that we're about to get soaked due to the huge puddles lying in wait for our nice, dry shoes, I turn to [profile] chocoholic47and say something loud and snarky to the effect of:

"Wow, it's a bit wet here."

And one of the runners, while passing us on the left, looks my way and comments:

"That's what SHE said!"

At which point they turned the corner in the opposite direction, and I laughed hysterically in the meantime. I have never seen the from-a-distance "that's what she said" employed so well. It sounds like something that would come straight out of sitcom-world. Thus, to echo the title of this entry: Well played, sir. May watching endless reruns of The Office continue to benefit you in similar ways.

Right, so, after I got home from work, I made a cup of tea and grabbed some chocolate, in preparation to sit in front of my tv and watch Britcoms on this rainy Saturday night.

When I turn on my TV, guess what I find? A documentary -- but not just any documentary -- one about my university and our approach/campaign to become more "green" in our energy use!!!!

Apparently it was filmed around a year or so ago, by a girl in my major, surprisingly! And, I saw lots of people and places that I recognized in the thirty minutes it was on. Awesome? I think so. I was definitely excited. The link describing the film is below, should you want a more thorough summary.

And now, because my Britcoms have yet to come on, I'm going to watch the latest ep of Doctor Who!! YAY!

Well, this was a nice little boon for my morning! I just picked up my grades from OnTrack -- I made two A's, and even pulled off an A- in Art History, despite the fact that my journal was crap and I accidentally forgot to turn in the written part of one of my assignments.

YAY! What a relief.

Well, I'm through with my GST final!!!! YAAAAYY!

Here's an amusing funny from class. Gabie wrote a little reminder note on the bulletin board while we were taking our exam to remind all the Fellows and internship people about doing their evaluations. Here's what it said.

After finishing your exam, you should....

a. Go to the pub immediately
b. Burn your class notes in a gigantic bonfire
c. Run naked around Russell Square
d. Fill out your evaluations.

If you are not a Fellow or an intern, feel free to do a, b, or c at your own risk.

Oh, Gabie makes me giggle. I'm going to miss her class so much. Anyway, being done with GST means that 1/3 of the day of evil is now complete. I now have to attend my theatre class and assign stupid fake awards to each play, and then finish the debacle of an art journal that is haunting my dreams. I think the end is in sight, my friends.

Cinco de Mayo '08 has been a pretty banging day. Here's why:

1. I voted! It took forever and a day to get the fax machine in my school building to work, but I was finally able to fax my ballot to the state board of elections. Tomorrow, my real ballot will be speeding through the mail, international style, to catch up. But my vote counts, and I'm so happy for that. There was a lot of stress on my part, thinking that I wouldn't get the ballot in time, or that something would go wrong -- but so far, it's worked.

2. I saw the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham with my mom this morning! Was SO fun. We also got to listen to an angry mounted policeman yelling at a stupid tourist (surprisingly, the tourist was NOT American, either!) Good times.

3. Last, but certainly not least.....


I SAW FRENCH AND SAUNDERS PERFORM LIVE TONIGHT!!!!!!!!! I haven't laughed so hard in ages. It was probably one of the best experiences I've had in Britain. So cool. There were so many rabid fans -- we all just screeched, applauded, cheered, and were rowdy together. The only downside is that we were unable to queue for autographs after the show. But that didn't even matter -- I was just happy to have seen F&S perform. And the people sitting next to me were so nice..... :)

However, all good things come to an end. Now it is May 6, and the evilness begins. My mom needs to be dropped off at Paddington early in the morning so she can catch her plane back to the States. I have classes, and that's no good. I also have a final exam for my first class -- even worse. Additionally, GST journals (you know, those things that have been due for ages that I never got around to finishing) are due as well. Plus, the art journal is calling my name and saying 'work on me, work on me!' It's due tomorrow night. And I am barely halfway finished.

So I hope that tomorrow is not as terrible as I think it might be. Send me some luck and remind me of how nice my Monday was before I get too stressed out.

Well, today has been a mix of things both awesome and crappy.

The awesome things:

Everybody loves my rainboots, which I was finally able to wear today (after 2 months of trying).
I got a ticket to The 39 Steps!
Walked from Piccadilly Circus to our class building in under 15 minutes. And knew exactly where I was the entire time!
I'd gotten more of my evil art journal done (by which I mean, have pasted in more postcards.)
I turned in the group project powerpoint this morning.

The crappy things:
My alarm did not go off this morning, and I was woken up at 7:45 by my nice flatmates so I could rush around like a crazy person to get ready.
I nearly lost my ticket to The 39 Steps because it fell out of my pocket on our front step.
I have still not finished (made significant progress on the writing aspect) the art journal.

Even though I additionally have to present the group project, write my GST journals, and study for my final, I think this will all even out in the long run, mainly because

MY MOM IS COMING TO VISIT ME TOMORROW! YAAAY!

I'm meeting her at Heathrow tomorrow morning at the ungodly hour of 6:45 AM. It's going to be crazy. But I can't wait!
