Secrets, Secrets

If anyone wants to see a fake Truman recruitment video that has been hidden on the admissions website for a few years (featuring the ending line "Yeah, we've got squirrels!") that I recently learned about today while hanging out in the admissions office, email me. I'd post the link all obvious-like, but what kind of anonymity is that?

the hunger note should've gone right here

Did anyone else realize those obnoxious LowerMyBills ads with the babies (featuring collect them all state abreviation diapers) make the babies jump up and down with joy that you're about to click them when the mouse hovers over a specific state? I've been playing with this for a bit too long.
Further email epiphanies

Apparently we're truly hoping for this to be the last weekend in the Sullivan house (in a "this year we're going all the way to state!" manner that may ultimately prove to be true or not), and performing lots of actions--turning off water, stealing the phone--that will help the truth along.

I must give snaps to my Mom for having an ideal buyer in mind. I too shall hope for that "nice little old lady with cash" to purchase our house and enjoy all the things we worked so hard to improve. This is a nice way of saying I hope she (I'm picturing someone 90ish) doesn't repaint the entire house pink with bunnies or something.

In other news, I'm stuck in the box office for another hour, I missed breakfast before my 9:00 class, and there are two giant bags of chips staring at me because they know I won't eat someone else's food, even if that someone is the person who will probably show up late again when I'm waiting to leave for lunch. This information only pertains to the above when you try to picture what incredibly bad taste joke I made (I blame it on the hunger, though maybe I wuz cursed!!!) and then edited back out.
If u break this chain u will b cursed!!!

The thought that all those silly email chain letters (send this to 15 friends and at midnight your true love will call or message you!!!) I've deleted over the years could conceivably be the cause of any misfortune in my life makes my day that much better.

Kinda like that weekends thing I used to do

Life has been a little funky lately, what with all the weird sleeping hours, papers and things to work on, and too much time wasted on Yahoo!Games. Since that leads to--among other things--a lack of communication between myself and you all out there, here I present my

*Mid-Week Update*

* first Easy Mac of the school year (+3) ... eaten cold because I didn't have enough time to eat it at lunch and ate the smallest bag of Sunchips ever instead (-1.5)

* open scene rehearsal is progressing despite the fact that I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M DOING (in all caps because it's extra true) and will soon need to make some ugly vegetable paintings and a safe (+5/-5)

* swords falling apart in the middle of fight rehearsal to hilarious effect always get a (+9)

* 2:15 a.m. Tuesday/Wednesday is apparently the most perfect time to do laundry because there's plenty of machines open and you'll still get to have a nice conversation with someone. And clean clothes again. (+2 conversation, +7.5 clothes)

* Wednesday day, however, with its potential all day out of the room everything must be strapped to my back in case I don't get pack, can happily remain appearing only once weekly. (-4)

* Anyone else notice I started doing sentences in here somewhere? (+3 for you)
But very little lunch

For thinking I was going to be gone from the room from 10:30 straight to 4:30 today, I sure have seen a lot of my room and its inhabitants.

Someone's gonna come a' calling

It's perfectly logical given the circumstances, but it does kinda creep me out that the only phone list in the box office has my name (and my name alone) marked.
Maybe it's the time of night talking, but I suddenly really want to work in the Avery Schreiber "banana in his ear" bit

When you start thinking about odd little extras to add to your one-act to personalize it a little, it truly has become *your* one-act.

This bag's for you.

Hope Slaby - I'm currently eating a bag of beef flavored Ramen noodles, just for you.
Garfield, Displaced

I hate Wednesdays.

And I might have a fever. (By which I mean, I really do, but I'm not sure if I'm sick or not.)

Greeting us upon return, OR I love the message board medium

I've just had an epiphany to which I feel you two must be made aware. I consider you one entity, "Hannah-Melissa" and while wondering which of you was a mere projection of a person, my mind stumbled upon the awful truth: you are both mere projections and the real mastermind behind your room and its ecosystem is the palm tree. -Colin

(Did I mention the VH computer lab is merely northern forest cool and not totally arctic wasteland cool?)

Something must be off with Merv again because all my font is the proper size on this computer AND the screen resolution actually likes me.

And skirts. Totally add skirts to that list, seeing as this was the year/summer I found all those cute skirts I'd apparently hid from myself in the back of the old denim drawer and didn't find until I was packing. Those things are great but they make both my legs freeze all the way. At least capris have some covering.
Layers: not just for winter anymore

I think today, sitting in biology class I finally reached the breaking point. I just can't dress for my classes and my dorm room in the same fashion. All my classes seem to be those A/C heavy beauties that feel wonderful during the summer months...until you remember that you dressed for the hotter than blazes dorm room and therefore don't have adequate protection from the air circulation. I want to enjoy my summer months with the capris and sleeve-less shirts and flip-flops, but I also don't want to receive frostbite during early September.

need a gold star or two

Accomplishments from the last few days:

* turned in the graduation application and will possibly not have to fix the form after 4-6 weeks of processing (thus saving me a second 4-6 weeks of processing and the mental anguish of having to do the form over)

* finally had the brilliant idea to bring snacks to the fire drill, providing sustanance while waiting outside to go back in and see the end of Lost

* picked my directing class play the same day class discussion told me it might be impossible seeing as it takes three strong *male* actors and, total combined, we'll need at least 25-30 castable guys for the shows (and may not even have that many show up to audition)

* organized my CD collection (Has anyone seen my Bangles greatest hits CD?)

Not only have I been way too ADD this entire weekend, but it's especially true right now, when I should be going to bed (for my nine o'clock class) and I'm instead looking up movie trivia and eBay's typewriter offerings.

Observation, or How Fast is Your Connection?

I need to post more often again--if nothing else--because if it drives me crazy to scroll through pictures while looking for a link, then it probably does the same for others. Maybe not. Maybe I'm the only one using my site to get faster facebook access.
