Life, the universe, pies, hot-pink bunnies, world domination, and everything
My mother bought us a pie yesterday because she was worried we’d be snowed in today.
Also… NEW THREAD NEW THREAD YAY! Now to fill it up all over again!
My friends and I tried to get pie yesterday from a pie-specific store in town, but they were all sold out. Fortunately, that store is the center of the “[town] Pie Festival” this Saturday, so my enjoyment of pie is merely delayed!
We had just gotten back from a one night camping trip to Joshua Tree National Park. It was lots of fun. I especially loved scrambling around on the big rocks.
After not getting pie, we realized that it was trivia night at a local bar, so we went there. Our greatest moment was when we went double-or-nothing on a 10 question round because the common theme among all the answers was that they were all titles of tabletop games. If we (as a group) know anything, it’s about tabletop games! Unfortunately, we were smacked down the next round by matching Golden Globe winners for drama and comedy/musical that were in the same year. We still came in 3rd out of quite a number of groups, though!
Meat, fruit, or both?
I’ve been to England and I think I did, but I can’t be sure because I was only four.
What else should a person sample in England, if she were to hypothetically be studying abroad there?
Mmm, Thai food…
Speaking of tasty food, today we went to a diner my parents were familiar with but that I couldn’t remember going to, and I got banana walnut pancakes!
Today I forgot for a moment that clocks go clockwise and read my watch backwards. Grad school is exactly as stressful as PhD Comics warned me.
Sometimes I think Mike Slackerny has become my spirit animal.
The dorm council approved my proposal for a Yuri’s Night party! We just have to make a good budget (we already asked for 25 dollars to buy prizes at the American Museum of Natural History gift shop.) Since we don’t want to spend too much, I thought we could also buy Astronaut Ice Cream at the gift shop, buy small brownies and wrap them in tin foil to make meteorites, and turn oranges into alien heads with marker and toothpicks. Any other cheap ideas?
Oh, decorations are no problem, I have paint and I save scrap cardboard up for art projects (recycling is good, but reusing and THEN recycling is even better). We’re going to watch COSMOS (2014, I think), and play a trivia game, so we have entertainment. It’s food that we’re brainstorming.
