Mandarin oranges are not nearly as satisfying as rocky road.

They're just not.

So for class I have to read the first half of this book called Imagined Communities and come up with like, twelve discussion questions.

I can't decide how I feel about it. It's like sometimes I'll feel the author and I are on the same page, and I'll just be happily reading along, then all of a sudden he'll totally change tack and I'll be completely lost. I think it's because he focuses a lot on the development of vernacular language in relation to ideas of time, which is far too philosophical for me.

Either way, 50 some odd pages and three more questions to go!

There must be a more efficient, less dangerous way to peel kiwis.

Flist, how do you peel a kiwi?

Whoo I got a 97 on That Fucking Horrible Paper From Hell.

That makes me feel so much better about how well I did on the final in that class. Also, I never have to hear anything about Progressive historians ever again.

I sent it to my dad to be edited like a week ago, and he sent it back with this scathing paragraph about how much he hated the Progressive historians. I included it in my paper and was kind of hoping for a comment on it from my professor, but all I got was an "excellent paper!" which is, y'know, nice, but I always like it when professors give feedback on things.

Also, I only need to get a 30% on my Latin America final for an A in the class.

All in all, I'm feeling pretty good about grades for this quarter. :)

Except maybe Econ. Fucking Econ. There's one fucker that screws up the curve. On our last midterm, the class average? 57. Some jackass got an 88. I'm praying they weren't the same person who got a 99 on the first midterm, since that screws up the curve horribly. One final left, which I guess I'll cram for tomorrow since it's Friday morning. I wish it was in the afternoon so I had a few extra hours, but whatever.

And then home to San Diego!

boo finals

I am so sick of Progressive historians in the US and Argentina, Brazil, and Cuba.

FInals cannot be over soon enough.

Summary of my day:
  • spend 20 minutes clearing bathroom of litter
  • run errands
  • cook dinner
  • dump half the dirty litter all over my bathroom floor
I am such a winner.

Today has been a strange day. I set my alarm for 7:30 with the intention of going to the gym, and then finally rolled out of bed at 9:30. Since the mailman left a note yesterday saying he was unable to deliver, I decided to go to the post office with my little note - which said that if I wanted my package delivered to me, as opposed to me picking it up, I had to go in and sign something.

Anyway, I (find and eventually) get to the post office and the package is already on a truck for redelivery. So I go to the grocery store. Then I read some - not as much as I should have, for my discussion tomorrow - and make dinner. And then decide I want Valentines' Day cookies. So I walk to Longs, which apparently doesn't have food coloring.

So back to the grocery store go I, where I accidentally buy some kind of tube of gel instead of food coloring. No idea how I fucked that one up, but whatever. Just been a weird day overall.

The cookies turned out alright though. )

...wat.

My cookbook just told me to add chicken stock.

My VEGETARIAN COOKBOOK.

WHAT.

I mean, I did, since I'm not a vegetarian, but it was still a little surprising.

I am so irrationally pissed off at the single mother of six who still lives with her mom that just gave birth to octuplets.

I love the Duggars and the Jon and Kate plus Eight family, but this woman is just making me so angry.

I'm sorry, it's irresponsible to have fourteen children because you didn't get enough love as a child or whatever her excuse was. ESPECIALLY if three of them are disabled and you're already on food stamps.

ETA: "Just gave birth" is a relative term, as apparently this happened a while ago. I wish I had a TV.

I love Tigger's Jabba the Hutt pose. So sexy.

Guys my cat is so freaking fat.

I have started feeling really bad whenever I need to run and get something from another room. Tigger gets up slowly and follows me, and is usually about halfway there when I'm coming back. Then I sit back down to whatever I was doing and he just looks so confused.

mmmm

I've been cooking for myself for two weeks now.

And I am still alive.

And not even hungry.

I even had a delicious quesadilla!

While my entire family and most of my friends were watching the Chargers (apparently) kick ass, I did this:
This is Romeo. He is silly. He was mad at me because I banished him to his perch and didn't let him hang out on top of the batter bowl. He seriously sulked for almost half an hour, even though I put some batter in his little bowl. Apparently it doesn't taste nearly as good if it's in his bowl, which I've actually known for several years. You give him his own little portion and he will literally chase you down until he can eat yours. If you move it, he growls and charges. He's such a little dork.

Also, we clearly care very little about bird-related hygiene in my family.

Anywho, that eventually resulted in this:
My peanut butter-banana-oatmeal-chocolate chip-cranberry cookies. They were so delicious. You can't really tell by this picture, but they were big and lumpy and overall just delicious. Really rich, though.

And now I'm off to bed. :)

I, uh, tried to LJ-cut for like ten minutes, but failed.

Guys, my mom doesn't understand google image search.

I was unaware it was rocket science.
