Okay, I know I always share the gory ones.

In this case I can’t help it.  Honestly, I think it’s the most terrifying thing I have  ever seen.

It snowed today.

No one believes me, but I swear to you that it did.  I promptly called several people and made myself look like a fool, which I suppose isn’t so far off the mark…

This would be my first exibit of something I’ve finished in the time I’ve been slacking off on my posting.  Unfortunately, Emily refused to pose considering I’ve…er…lost the mate.  I’m sure it’s around, but until then I’ll be dodging duck beaks.

This would be an exibit of a languishing project that I’ve recently resumed.  Enough said.

I finally managed to hang a little more art in my apartment:

Both by Annie Hubbard.  The print on the left was made from one of her watercolors, and the one on the right is a birch bark cut-out of a crane.  My walls are greener than the picture shows.  It’s nice to have something to break them up!

Finally, I liked this tree because of its oddly vertical branch patterns and the way it looks against that dusky stretch of sky.

And now, back to FAB.

I love Senegal.

There are so many reasons for why.

Things I Do In Class

Owly and Mice!!  Notice the tiny baby on Mooma Mouse’s back…I don’t think they’re coming out tonight!!  O_o

Okay, so it’s pretty much impossible to get accurate photos of everything, but here’s the general idea.  I’m usually staring at different trees, but you guys won’t know the difference.  Only one of my classes has a window anyway…

Trees outside Dow

Another incarnation of Mouse-drawn trees.  At least these were done during Environmental Science!!

I’ve left out the most obvious employment, which would be knitting.  Photos later!!  This is my only week off, so hopefully I’ll get those out here tonight or tomorrow.  As of Saturday, I have sold my soul to the most problematic production I’ve seen in several years.  If only I weren’t magnetically attracted toward things that need help, my life would be so much easier.  Seriously, I need a second person in my head who can tell me when I’m making stupid decisions.  I guess that’s a problem for another day.

Thanks for the link, Daddy!

Yes We Can!!

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

Last night around 12:30AM we traipsed over to campus to see the festivities.  We actually missed those (the “actual” festivities), but found instead that we were just in time to witness (and meet from the other direction!) a giant group of our fellow seniors parading onto the quad in a giant mob, singing “We Shall Overcome”.  Everyone milled about on the quad hugging each other and screaming, streaking, and in one case setting off flares in the middle of the quad–Security didn’t stop them!!

I probably should have gone to some of the spur-of-the moment parties, but instead I came home.  My classes might argue that it was the best decision, but I’m still not convinced…

Obama!!

That is all.

(Except for this from the other day; it would have been worth its own post)

And as suddenly as it began…

…my play is done.  I’m not entirely sure what to do with my time at this point.  I suppose I could take up a new hobby, like cleaning my apartment.

On second thought, maybe I’ll pass.

I miss my company, and they’ve only been gone five houurrrrsss.  *sniffle*
