Hey kids. I found out that I am a freaking idiot and instead of linking to a New York Times article I linked to my class list from web design. Whoops. Everything should be all better now. Yay!

Thank you kids for dropping a lil line. It makes me feel all warm inside!

They make me sick. If these ladies plan on being stay at home moms anyway, why are they bothering w/ college? Its a waste. One of them could pay for me to be at RIT and then she can start having her babies. I admit that for American women it is incredibly difficult to balance both motherhood and a career and I admire these women for making the choice to be mothers full time for their children BUT. But. I can't quite verbalize the ideas that are running around in my head. I believe that my mother was a wonderful mother because she worked. She taught me independence this way. There was no one waiting for me when I got home. I had my own house key. I learned to take care of myself for a few hours. I never imagined my mother being home full time. It was weird when she was home when I got home from school. When she retired my senior year and was home when I got home, it was totally weird. But what I'm getting at is, I feel like these Ivy League girls are somehow thumbing their noses at the women who fought so hard for them to be able to be going to lvy league schools in the first place. They should be grateful they even have the option of going to law school. So you know, spend 4 years at one of the best schools in the country but don't do anything with that awesome education your going to get.

Hello there. I apologize for the lack of posts. But I don't think anyone reads this blog anyway? Prove to me that you do. (Oh man I am asking for comments. I feel so dirty.)
I've been pretty busy as of late with classes and rugby practice. I have a second home it is the Biomed lab. I like to go there a lot. At least 3 times a week. I will be there today as soon as it opens.
Rugby has been going. We played Fredonia on saturday and got our asses handed to us. I say we are not mean enough. We do not play dirty. Nor were our rucks up to snuff. Dan and I had a bet. He (never having eaten eggs by themselves before) would have to eat a 6 egg omlete if we won and if we lost, I would have to eat a sirloin steak. (Red meat and I are not friends. I am the girl who goes to her uncle's fabulous steak house and orders chicken or shrimp.) I am eating steak tonight. This makes me queasy.
I got up real early on sunday to go shoot a class project at a park. My assignment was to take pictures of fungi. The place was crawling with it. I took many pictures. 92 in fact. Now I have to edit them and whittle them down to 25 and give them to an upperclassmen in the AV class who will throw my photos into a flash presentation add music and some other stuff and TA DA. It is like I am the client and the other person is the producer and they must please me with their work.
In knitting news, work continues on the wavy scarf for Sarah Eddy. I have lots of trouble knitting scarfs, so I don't know when this will be finished. Work has also commenced on a red hat for Sworva. I like knitting hats. A lot. I should really become a mute when I am drunk. I have tendencey to promise people knitted items. They always remember too. Meathead is now in the cue for a hat. Meathead shaves his head bald and says his head is cold and that winter is coming and he doesn't want to be cold. And I feel bad but he is going to have to wait his turn. After Sworva, its Pete, then Kelsie, then Pecky, then maybe Spencer, then Meathead. Oh jeeze. Just wait till I learn to knit socks. I'll really be in trouble then.
I miss you kids from back home. Especially Sworva and Sarah Eddy and Tony. Miss you kids.

Wasup? I'm back. So glad to be back at school. Rugby has started and our first game is next weekend. That is much excitement. My classes are pretty good. Taking pictures of pine cones. Y'all know yer jealous. So I have a little treat for you.
I have a set of photos from my farm adventure up on Flickr. There aren't too many but I will probably add more later. I hope you enjoy them.
And did you all know that Sarah Eddy is amazing? Isn't geology amazing? I'm so proud of my rock loving girl.

How can I be so fucking stupid? How can I joke about something that has caused so much destruction and pain?

Oh no. This country has gone mad.
