I'm not dead yet

Not to sound too Monty Python, but really I'm not dead yet. I've just been busy and not so much for the blogs lately.
So why no blog? Well 1.) I never really have anything to say. I'm just babbling in hopes that you, my online friends, will somehow validate my babbling. 2.) I worked really hard this semester and just didn't have much time for the babbling. 3.) I moved to a shiny new apartment, and basically worked through the entire process in a week. If you've ever moved in Manhattan you understand how icky stressful that is. 4.) My new apartment has no internet yet and 5.) I've been in Texas for the last week recovering from 2-4.
I haven't even looked at the blog world for about a month, and I've realized how much I miss you, my online friends. You also happen to be real life friends so that is super neat. Thanks for your comments I've just read, and I hope you all had merry whateveryoucelebrate's.
Things are good. I have a supercute haircut, my new apartment is wonderful (mainly because it is inhabited only by me and my cat), my personal life is pretty good, school sucks less than it has in ages, and it's my birthday today! Granted I'm spending it with my parents in my rinky dinky home town, but they are the ones responsible for the birthday to begin with. Besides they are happy to ply me with food and booze.
So there you have it. That's about it for me. It's good to see you again, and I'll try to have lots of uninteresting things to post in the near future.

Tell me I'm good

I just declined a fantastic gift of a 30% discount at Banana Republic from a student on the grounds that taking it would be unethical.

Please comfort me....

I feel like I am in a time machine

Wow the Warner Brothers company sure knows how to suck it. Warner Brothers' president, f Jeff Robinov, has issued a statement that they are only casting men in lead movie roles from now on because some of the latest movie releases (which happened to have female leads) were shiteous. It makes a lot of sense huh? What backward thinking. What decade is this again?

At least none of the movies from Warner Brothers look like they are any good. I think it will be easier to boycott their movies. Unfortunately I use Time-Warner for internet and cable. Blast.

Ladies and gentlemen

We have a cat blog. Silk Stocking brought a cute little bundle of kitten-y fluff into the apartment, and now we must blog about it.

My arch nemesis....

The stupid sale sign in front of stupid Banana Republic.

I'm innocently walking home from the subway after teaching, and there it is. The pretty, shiny, "Sale of the Season" sign. I should know better, but sometimes the bug gets a hold of me. I must try things on. If the shirt is marked off to $30 from $60, I'd be a moron not to buy it! I have that exact same sweater in green, but I can get it in purple too! You know, stupid shopaholic logic like that.

At least I only tried on clothing that was on sale... I almost made it out without a purchase and then one of the tops fit too perfectly. Curses. I need some self control. I need help. I need matching shoes and jewelry!

If only food and booze didn't also cost money.

Look mom!

So the past few weeks have been craptacular due to a Very Big Deadline I have this weekend, superhuman expectations from faculty for the semester, and my ever growing crankiness with most people.

But for some reason I'm feelin' strangely fine.

Possibly because I successfully ran my very first PCR today! Yaaay! I even put a picture on the refridgerator. Gee I bet mom would be so proud!
I also got to witness Claudius' reaction to a pigeon on the window sill. The whole thing was hilarious and freakin' adorable. Claudius kept trying to attack the pigeon, but the pigeon was just like, "Hey wassup?". Then the pigeon started pecking at the cat's flicking tail through the window.

Friday cat blogging

I love this sprawled back leggage with the "I hates Friday mornings" yawn. Right there with ya buddy. No less than two cups of coffee will get me going today.

It just became crystal clear

Academics are f%&!ing insane.
