Tonight's theme was, apparently, "how many awkward situations and flashing-police-car-roadblocks can I fit into a three hour time period?"
The answer to both of these questions is two. Thankfully, only one of these four things caused me to get completely lost for 40 minutes.

On a plus side, pierre called me and I got to listen to him trying to get his cat to say "hi" to me for fifteen minutes.

(edit: ok, make that three awkward situations)

As some of you may know, one of my dreams is to author an encyclopedia of ingredients found in common household products and food items. For example, panthenol. Panthenol is an ingredient contained in my bottle of Nutrogena Skin Smoothing Body Lotion, but what is it? What is it derived from (panthers?) and what does it contribute to my lotion? I don't know, but I'd sure like to.

However, until I muster the motivation to do this, I've come up with another idea that will hopefully help me make my mark on the world: reviewing the CDs I purchase from the clearance bin at Tunes. It should provide to be at least somewhat amusing. For one, I don't know how to write reviews of anything; two, I know nothing about music; and three, my motivation behind purchasing these CDs is almost always based on the cover art and/or band name.

Look forward to the first episode of this experiment, in which I will review My Dad Is A Dinosaur (self titled, I presume).

I think all auto mechanics should be required to take two semesters of college chemistry.

Today, I had a sociology test to take and a takehome quiz to hand in.
The quiz was stored in my book.
I woke up this morning and drove to class. I had ten minutes to kill so I decided to glance through the sociology book, seeing as how I haven't opened it since class started August 28th. Book not in car. Panic. Called my mom asking her to look for it at home. No dice.
Looking forlorn, I went to Chem, contemplating my eventual sociological doom.
As I walked into the classroom, I realized two things at once:

1) The last place I'd seen my book was Starview. It had to be there. Ironic because I had chastised Bill for almost forgetting his backpack there that night.
2) I was drunk when I set my alarm last night, which meant it was approximately one hour before my Chem class began, and I had just walked into a classroom full of strangers. Convenient because it gave me ample time to...

Drive to starview and retrieve my book. Which, I might add, had a nice little note on it saying "regular customer, do not throw away!" Thanks, Sheryl. I owe you a mighty fine tip.

So then I went to chemistry class for real. Somehow, I ended up with 80% of the contents of Beaker A (Beaker A: hydrochloric acid*, ethyl acetate** and distilled water) all over my crotch***. I firmly believe that mashimar0 threw it at me because I never know what's going on but always pretend I do. She denies this. I suffered no serious injury and the lack of a Beaker A didn't really affect our experiment because Beakers B and C didn't work as planned and I can only assume that A wouldn't have either.

Sociology test? Using my advanced math and statistics skills, I estimate a grade of 80.3 before the curve. We'll see how it pans out.

per everyone's advice, i've decided to give it some time.
"it" is actually two different issues, but I guess they both need time.

I'm finding meaning in things that are meaningless. I don't understand anything my chemistry professor is saying in relation to chemistry so I'm taking it all and applying it directly to life. Ionization energies measure the tendency of a neutral atom to resist the loss of electrons and I'm feeling a bit like Francium.
Aside from knowing I felt like it, I knew nothing about Francium a minute ago so I looked it up:
Francium was discovered by Marguerite Perey (France) in 1939. Named for France, the nation of its discovery. It is highly rare and unstable, radioactive metal. I guess aside from the France thing, it is about accurate.

I wish I could be more like Helium or Neon: I've always admired those noble gasses, but they have their downfalls too. Colorless, inert, hella abundant.

time stands still, all I can feel is the time standing still as you put down the keys and say, "don't call me please," while the radio plays "I think I need a new heart".....

someone make out with me.
