Thirded. But also agreeing that you always look spiffy.

This morning my partner is going to watch football with friends without me. So excited. I was invited and I love him, but I have not had our apartment to myself for several consecutive hours in ...months. If ever? I can't remember the last time. Yeesssss. No pants, face mask, cleaning the kitchen...woo! I could do that with him here, but something about alone time is refreshing.

I was just mildly peeved by the jokes about it being sooooo hard to take an iron pill since it actually is hard for me and causes me a lot of issues. I know I'm not alone on this. I have to choose between severe anemia and being in a lot of pain. Not fun. Usually I wait until I start getting randomly dizzy and then start the pills again, then go off them when I can't deal with the super painful cramping any longer. I'm in the stage now where I'm about to suck it up and go back on them!

Yeah, I transcribe for a hospital and know from that that iron pills and supplements are notorious for causing side effects, especially stomach type upsets for some folks. <3

FFS! I saw a vegan recipe for rolos and now I have a major craving. Health food store is closed in 11 mins and won't be open again until Monday and I'm a 30min drive away. This is going to be one long weekend.

I had THE LONGEST day yesterday. I worked from 8:30 until 4:00, then went straight to an event and was the volunteer photog until 12:00. I am still so tired.

You guys are awesome.

Pink shirt, and the all red tie from the other photo. :]

Whee survived the talk!

Went with blue shirt and purple striped tie (I think this is the burgundy stripe people are referring to? It's really more of a plum colour) because they had the most overlap in votes (including real life people).

It's over it's over it's over. It went terribly, but it's over.

Normally I go to the pub on a Saturday night with my flatmate, but he has a gig tonight. So I am on the sofa in my pyjamas with a bottle of wine watching X Factor. And feeling slightly guilty that I am enjoying it so much.

Sod it! X Factor is great! I'm on the tea rather than the wine. Tea and Jammy Rings. And maybe some toast and chocolate orange spread in a bit.

I've sewn two skirts this week and loved making them. Now I want to sew all the things. I have curtains that need taking up but I really want to make dresses out of some lovely patterns and gorgeous fabrics I've earmarked. Never had sewing lust before.

In case anybody who voted on a shirt and tie wanted to see:

snazzy.

I hate being cranky and having the person you're talking to also be cranky. annoying. and not being sympathetic that my football team just lost is not helping. blerg.

Not so good with the talking. There was much stumbling and as a lifelong mumbler, "streaming instability gravitational collapse" is not exactly the easiest phrase. All preparation went out the window upon standing up in front of real live people.

My classmates who were also in this particular presentation group are much more articulate public speakers.

So ....close....to sweet, sweet freedom.
And Amy's chili at home. Though I'm whiny and want bread and olives instead. Life is hard, guys.

Fizzgig, I always make myself walk away from that situation! Talking to cranky people makes me way cranky; being cranky and doing so makes me all grumpy.

Maybe, maybe it just seems so to you.

At any rate, your content matters most. Delivery will come in time. Also, you are young--nobody is expecting seasoned perfection.

Yeah, Best Astronomy Professor said I sounded very obviously nervous, but that the content carried the talk. At least the slides were really pretty? Best way to avoid practicing public speaking: spend weeks making the most beautiful accompanying slides possible.

The entire purpose of this exercise is to give us experience in a safe forgiving environment. Nobody's going to judge us on talks we gave about our summer research as undergrads. Easier to learn now than in grad school when it matters.

Sat down with every intention of finishing a video project for one of my graduate classes. Totally ended up watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One.

In other news, I am glad to hear Amandabear is doing better.
