Monday it was back to school. My Linguistics professor decided to keep us in class until the final minutes, so I was running across campus, trying to make it to my English midterm on time. I made it just as the professor was passing out the exam booklets. I have a really bad feeling about the test. I don't think I did very well. I studied, but not as hard as I could have. And the running across campus, freaking out about missing the exam, didn't help, either. I turned in my Comparative Studies essays and read some poetry in there. Much thanks go out to shawnly, jadeju1ia and borednclueless for all their input and help on Sunday night when I was writing, writing, writing my little heart out on those essays.
Tuesday was nothing but work, work, work. When I got home that evening, I was talking to Julie when kickassartkid called me and told me that he wanted us to come over and watch "Lovely and Amazing." I had too much homework to do, and Julie's project wasn't going very well, so we reorganized the plans for Wednesday evening, with a little "American Idol" party.
Wednesday was school again. I didn't go to my Comparative Studies class. I just wasn't feeling it. I'm not sure if I should e-mail the professor with some bullshit excuse of just take the dock in my grades for the overall attendance portion. I suppose I'll just have to wait and see how I'm feeling. I went to Kroger to deposit my check in the ATM machine. I locked my keys in my car, so I stood in the cold next to my car for a half-an-hour waiting for my mom to run to the KIA dealership so they could make me another key. I was cold. And sad. But now I have an extra key that I will never lose, so I shall never ::hopefully: be locked out in the cold again. When I got home I started getting ready to go over to Matt's for our little viewing party. Julie had work and babysitting to do, so she would be joining us later. I made it over to Matt's in time to order pizza and get the party started. duckzilla offered to go get the pizza so Matt and I wouldn't miss a minute of the action. I love me some "American Idol" this season. For some reason I really hope that Frenchie makes it a long way. And I think Paula Abdul is on Valium and Vodka. All in all it makes for some excellent viewing. Julie got there, we watched the rest of "Idol." Had some margaritas, chatted it up a bit. A couple of Matt and Bernie's friends from work/life stopped by and chilled for a bit. Matt had taped the final auditions from last week, so we watched those. Had some laughs. Julie and I left around 12:10 to go to Wall Street. gayto_fabulous was there, decked out in all his hatty glory, lookin fabulous, if I do say so myself. A little later Felix, Cassandra, Melissa, and Sarah from work all popped in. I had a queen-out moment and rushed across the dance floor to embrace them all. I just didn't expect them all to show up. It was fun. I had to pee, and the line in the boy's bathroom was really long. Julie took me to the girls and I released my bladder frustrations. Danced it up a bit more. Ben arrived, messy as ever. We got up on one of the platforms and some black queen tried to make us get down. Ben and I just looked at him, then at each other, and restrained ourselves from kicking him in his gold-chain wearin face. He got pissed, we got happy. Wall Street is fun. Julie left early due to early classes. Plus she wasn't feelin' too good from the margaritas she had earlier. Everyone else stayed, danced. It was fun. I felt kinda sad toward the end of the evening, though. More self-pity that I won't go into. They played some decent enough music. A really good mix of T.A.t.U.'s "All The Things She Said" that I haven't heard before.
I woke up this morning to work. Work was boring. I was supposed to hang out with the Springfield boy from last week tonight. But when I got off work and got ready to leave, I called him and he told me that he was back in Springfield. I was kinda pissed. But supposedly he's coming back tomorrow afternoon. I really, really want to see "Final Destination 2" tomorrow, so if he flakes on me again, I'm just gonna give up on him. No one makes me miss movies.
Speaking of movies, I went to Blockbuster tonight and rented "Freddy Got Fingered," "Sorority Boys," and "Cherish." I'm having a difficult time deciding which one to watch tonight. borednclueless isn't being much help, either. For some reason the movie "Harry and the Hendersons" just flashed into my head. We used to have that on video. But I think I looked for it awhile ago and couldn't find it. I want that movie. Now. Someone purchase it for me, please.
I have to work lunch tomorrow. Hopefully some fun people are working, or I may just kill myself.
