OK. Despite the fact that this morning I sent a series of extremely irritated text messages to G. as a response to a comment about split pea soup being used as vomit in the exorcist, I think I’m back to normal. I blame the whole severe support for pea soup on the fact that it was 8:30 am and I hadn’t had my coffee yet. Why people put up with me before I’m caffeinated, I don’t know.
I managed to pull myself out of my midterm slump enough to write my Physics exam with poise and confidence (?) & I’m not going to lie to you guys, I kicked it’s sorry little ass. I still have some papers due, but for the most part, those have never bothered me. I was in good enough shape last night to sit down for TV Tuesdays and solely concern myself with whether or not Zoe Hart should just go for George Tucker already or if she should start sleeping with Wade again. It was really intense up in here, let me assure you. When Lemon Breeland took off that embroidered cardigan and showed off her strapless red number, I was all “ooooooooooooh, girl, mmm!”
This is all good news, but the really good news is that I can start paying attention to my life again. But before all that, a two week late thank you to the Universe, for:
Sit down dinners with friends over comfort food like ham & potatoes, the introduction of gummy fangs to the 5 cent aisle at 7-11, and receiving a delicious & seasonally appropriate present via International Express mail from fellow blogger, Jason. Getting Nutella samples in the mail, science study buddies, emailing NASA, knowing people who know people, flannel sheets & his bed, creating birthday lists & chamomile tea. Lavender baths in the early afternoon, watching movies in lecture, re-reading a Midsummer Nights Dream and laughing out loud & pets that take care of themselves (thanks, Goldfish.) Skeleton lanterns, giant taco salads for dinner, & an incredible free fall from 128,000 feet above the earth surface. How fucking incredible was that?
This week, I will not get upset about soup. I WILL, on the other hand, get upset if NASA doesn’t email me back.
