Quiet Time

I've decided to take the night off; I've rented 8 episodes of Scrubs, I have mini eggs, and I have a whole floor of my house, at least until my parents finish watching their latest BBC special. I am so excited. I had to get up at 6:30 am today, and then sit through class after class when I could have been watching storm the wall, and really, hanging out with J.D., Carla, Turk and Elliot sounds like the perfect night.

Ah, relaxation.

Oh, and Tessa wins the photo guessing contest. It's the bottom of a dasani bottle, through the top.

What Am I?

What Am I?, originally uploaded by Never Reason.

Alright people, guessing has begun; what is this? (Amanda, if you heard what it was in class, then you're not allowed to guess.) Oh, and there are more pictures if you click on the photo.

Rearview, originally uploaded by Never Reason.

This has been my favourite subject thus far. It's the rearview mirror of an old truck that parks down my street. I love the colour contrast, and the texture of the rust up near the top. It reminds me that sometimes things are prettier when you look more closely.

How is everyone? I have no idea what y'all have been up to, except Amanda, cause she's in my photography class (hi Amanda!). So tell me! I'll start:

Saturday I had formal, which was good times, and everyone looked very pretty. Also, I have gorgeous earrings, which I always find exciting. And I was voted most likely to succeed! Always a nice feeling.

Yesterday Peter Mansbridge of CBC came and gave a talk, which was fun. It was a good speech, not too preachy, or congratulatory. I found the number of Mansbridge-worshippers a little surprising. Seriously, some people were crazy about him. I had no idea.

Finally, I went to Roosters, a country-themed br, last night. It was fun, and I'll never turn down 5 cent chicken wings, but topless mechanical bull-riding? So, so unattractive. Listen, girls (none of my girls, thank god): there are many, many other things you could be doing needlessly topless, if you must, that would look far, far better. Yeesh.

Activity Headache

You know when you have one of those days that is so full that at the end, your head hurts, but in a good way? That was today. This morning I got up, ate a hearty breakfast to fortify myself, then muddled my way though makeup (now y'all know it was a big day), and sprinted down the street to catch a bus (which I managed to catch, thank goodness). Why was I in such a hurry? Why, to make it for lunch with this woman, who in addition to being incredibly intelligent and a pioneer of memory psychology, is also surprisingly personable and fun to talk with. It was such a nice lunch, and I'm so happy to have been able to attend (Thanks, L!).

After lunch, I had class for an hour and a half (that was my break).

Then, the aforementioned researcher gave a talk titled Illusions of Memory, which had the most heated question period I've ever experienced in a psychology talk, and then, finally, a reception with (tasty) canapes and mingling. And I know that it doesn't sound like that much when you read it here, but activity headache, people. It was big. And I need sleep. Adieu!

Still Alive

Hey y'all,

I'm still alive, just been busy. Oh, and I wrote my last midterm of my undergrad degree EVER! Be back later, need to sleep.

Not for the Squeamish.

Ladies and gentlemen, the toenail is leaving the building.

Yep, after over a month of strange colours and varying pain, it has officially started un-sealing itself from my toe, the sight of which is both fascinating (to people like me) and extremely unsettling. I do find it fascinating, because the...shedding? of the nail is completely painless, and yet my nail is falling off. So as I sit here, watching a repeat of Queer Eye (John K., cutest little old man ever) I take little breaks to look at my toe.

The one negative is that this means I won't have a toenail for my last formal, so...closed toe shoes it is! Heh, it's an annoyance, but a small one, and at least my "Sekke! I'm not going to have a toenail for formal!" was good for a laugh.

And no disparagig remarks about me looking at my toenail. You're just jealous you can't see it.
