No flu yet. But another professor came to class yesterday hacking and wheezing with a cold. EVERYONE is sick here. So far, so good for me...*leans over and knocks on wood* but I'm sure I can't evade this stuff forever.
I saw a sneak peek of The Duchess last night. Oh, Keira Knightley...your nose is so abnormally small. That's essentially what I was thinking during the entire movie. I liked the movie, but my roommates didn't, and since I tend to like almost everything, I'd take their opinion over mine. Ralph Fiennes played her husband in the film and when he came on screen we couldn't help but to sing "Voldemort, Voldemort, oh, Voldy, Voldy, Voldy..." a la Potter Puppet Pals.
Pardon me for twenty seconds while I brag. Yesterday, in my expository writing class (same class in which my prof had the flu), the professor said he was going to read out loud the best essay in the class. Um, it was mine. I was on cloud 9 for a good few hours after that.
I found a great little old-fashioned grocery store nearby. Have I mentioned that? It's way over-priced, but I spent several minutes there earlier today drooling over chickpea salad and vegetarian dolmas. But I just couldn't justify spending $5+ on teeny-tiny containers. Even if they did look DELICIOUS.
Today I met a Scottish Sean Connery. I was at Lenscrafters getting my eyeglasses tightened (after accidentally knocking them off my desk at 3 a.m. and getting them all bent out of whack) and the moment he said, "Euu've goht tight frayms" I knew I wanted curl up inside his voice and listen to him forever.
Speaking of knocking things off my desk at 3 a.m....apparently I flail about in my sleep. I knew I was a cover-hog, but every. single. morning. I wake up and my body pillow (which I am IN LOVE with), comforter and most of my sheet are all on the floor. I've started tucking the covers in around me at night to no avail. Suggestions? Velcro-ing the covers to me?
I got a Twitter account. But I was required to for one of my classes. I've permanently labled my status as "My Name is all atwitter" and I think I am just hilarious.
