13 April 2008

When life hands you lemons... I am stuck inside on a beautiful day because I have to write a research paper. [More:] I do, however, have the windows open, and I have a nice view from here of gardens and birds and blue sky, and as the breeze ruffled the research articles I'm scribbling on, I thought, "What would make this actually nice would be some lemonade." I went to the refrigerator to find something to heat up for lunch, and discovered that I had squirreled away some "Jamaican Lemonade" spritzers from some forgotten shopping trip. Unexpected blessings from my past self, I guess.
On a related note, I'm not sure how the hell I'm supposed to do a literature review when we're limited to six pages and five referenced articles. That's not really a "review" so much as it is an "intro." And I know I sound like a brown-nosing brat by saying that there wasn't enough work assigned, but I'm just finding it hard to conceptualize how this should even work.

My suggestion would be to blow off class and get stoned in the woods. Somebody'll bring schnapps and bottlerockets.

I'm stuck inside because I have to write a research paper too! High five!
And no I get what you mean, page limits can be just as annoying as page minimums, given the subject matter.

I'm stuck inside because work is just kinda crazy and I need the weekends to stay kept up!

Black cherry seltzer for me, though.

I did get an hour's break during which I cleaned out my community garden plot. I found chives growing, tiny chard, tiny spinach, and sorrel under the dead leaves. Life returns !

I'm stuck outside doing yardwork that I've been putting off all week. It's supposed to be near 90, and my allergies are off the charts, so we'll see how long that lasts.

I took a nap. Sorry, all. But I'm off to do some contra dancing.

I'm stuck inside grading 50 engineering essays on the environmental impact assessments for wind turbines.

I feel your pain.

Ya, I'm working too. I really want to take a nap. I may sneak one in at one point.

No work here. But it's not so nice outside, so I don't mind being couchbound.

I'd like to do some yard work but it keep raining.

It was overcast and cool today. Actually, it was downright dark this morning. It looked as if we were going to have thunderstorms, but they blew over. I went to grocery store, cleaned, cooked, and snuck in a nap while my kids watched Ratatouille on DVD.

sold beer for a community event yesterday. Too much sun + all the beer I could drink + not enough water = bad. So I slept all last evening. This morning went for a detox run, some work in the lab, drove back home (2 hours), then quick nap, lunch, shower, coffee shop with the times, italian soda and mecha/meta.

I stayed inside all day because I'm sick with a horrible cold and, to add insult to injury, had to do taxes.

Yesterday was spent outside 76 degrees and lots of sun so we took the dog to Magnuson Park and did some yardwork afterwards. Today was drizzly, so we went down to SAM for the Roman art from the Louvre exhibit. All in all, a decent weekend. Not trying to rub any noses in anything. Really.

Got the chance to finally catch Little Miss Sunshine (I was about to write that as Little Miss India:)) and loved it! Couldn't help crying at the end even though I was trying my darndest not to.

Finally uploaded a bunch of pics to my flickr account which has been giving me a lot of trouble lately.

Am thinking of writing another story on my blog and trying to keep it updated.

Let's see...
