My convocation ceremony was a couple of days ago, and although it was horribly boring, there were a few moments of hilarity.Read more...Collapse )

What to Wear?

Share
by rockinkitten
My convocation is on May 24.

At my high school grad, they told us, "ONLY WEAR BLACK PANTS under your robe!" I'm a rebel, so I wore lime green ModRobes.

So, what do I wear to my convocation ceremony?

Option 1: Don't be a retard, wear black pants!
Option 2: You're no more mature than you were in high school, dig out the greenies!
Option 3: You have sexy legs, wear nothing!
Option 4: Be comfy, wear jeans!

Vote vote vote!

My sister Lily had the first baby of the family on Sunday morning!! The baby's name is Sophie, and I didn't get to see her because I left Calgary at noon on Sunday and the hospital wouldn't let me in: baby's siblings and grandparents only.

The nursery is Miffy-themed. It ROCKS.

Also, I'm done school, so now I will be posting on LJ again!

I Hate Tenure

Share
by rockinkitten
So I was supposed to have a class last Thursday called English 318. I showed up. All the other students showed up. The PROF did not show up. On the first day of class. This bodes poorly for the rest of the year.

I registered a little late for this class, so my name didn't get added till Friday morning. I emailed the profand asked if perhaps I had the wrong room, even though I know I didn't, because I was curious as to where the hell he was.

He emailed me back and said "Didn't you get the email I sent to everyone explaining that and other important info for next week's class?" I responded negatively, barely restraining myself from yelling "Duh!" at the computer. Um, yes, I did get your email, but I just felt like bothering you and pretending I didn't read it, just for fun.

So he NEVER RESPONDED. It's been four days. I get to go to class tomorrow morning, having no idea what the hell is going on, what the "important info" is, or where he was.

Tenure? SUCKS.

School Blah!

I promised rockinkitten that I would be more on top of my updates now that I'm back at school again, so here it is: a cranky rant.

My sister woke me up an hour and a half early today. And I'm going to have a SIX HOUR school day, with NO breaks (no time to eat!). I'm attending an extra class this morning (Eng 318). The class I'm registered in (Eng 324) will involve GROUP presentations, which will be 20% of my mark. I frigging hate it when profs do that. Why should any part of my mark depend on other people?? I'm always with The Dumbs.

Then it's also a pain in the ass to get together with them and stuff. I haaaaaaaaate it. But the 318 prof is supposed to be a really hard marker. I'm going to both this morning to see which looks like the lesser of two evils. And I'm fervently hoping that they don't both last a full hour and a half. Then after that, I have my three-hour honours seminar.

I'm off to eat breakfast!

Arachnophobia

Share
by rockinkitten
I am very, very, VERY scared of bugs. Almost all bugs. Even ladybugs make me uncomfortable. I'm afraid I'm going to squish them accidentally or they'll get in my hair or something. But the worst is spiders. What do they need all those legs for anyway??

So Pierre left for work, and I was coming into the computer room. And there it was. Lurking. Waiting. A REALLY REALLY BIG SPIDER on the doorframe. I gasped and said "oh my god" in a little voice. Then I had to stand there and stare at it for a long time, because if I lost track of it, I would REALLY freak out. I've got to know where it is, because then I am sure that it's not on ME.

Then I realized that I couldn't stare at it all night, but I couldn't NOT stare at it because then it would go have babies or get in the bed or something.

Then I thought I'd call Mario (my neighbor) to come over and kill it. Then I remembered he'd still be at work. Then I hyperventilated for a while while I stared at it, and it stared at me. Trying to look all innocent. Acting like it wasn't looking forward to rushing at me or suddenly appearing RIGHT NEXT to my FACE. I stared at its big fat body and long creepy legs. It stared back.

I have never had to deal with a spider alone before. I've always had a Spider Killer (ie, Dad, Boyfriend, or Brother in Law) present to squish it for me. I hyperventilated some more.

Then I steeled myself, went into the bathroom, and gathered a wad of toilet paper as big as my head. Then I squished it. Then I ran back to the bathroom as fast as I could, threw it in the toilet, and flushed without looking.

I'm still tense. Now I've attracted the other spiders' wrath, and they're all going to come in here. Or the one I squished is going to crawl out of the toilet, wet and bedraggled, immortal and PISSED OFF. ohmygodohmygodohmygod.

I need one of those bug vacuums. Seriously. I don't care how much they cost.

I'm going to have nightmares.

I need to make a new CD for work because my brain will seep out my ears if I have to listens to the Beatles one more time. Unfortunately, there is VERY little music that is acceptable to our customers. My manager said that 50s and 60s music should be safe.

I love those decades! But I need LOTS of songs because I don't want to get totally sick of them. And I'm having a blockage. All I've got so far is:

- Lipstick on Your Collar
- In the Still of the Night (The Five Satins)
- anything Buddy Holly
- anything Everly Brothers (esp. "All I Have to Do is Dream")

Help me save my brain!
