meteor shower! at like 1 in the morning, i went out to watch, discovered that living on campus is really bad for seeing stars thanks to ambient light. also, it was cold out. i got frustrated and came back in, then went out again with heron to some field and watched from there. there were some great ones! vwoosh! and we sang songs.
maybe 3 people in my milton class actually did the reading, so class was cancelled. the moral of the story: if you don't do your homework, you are rewarded with free time and early lunch
so i'm driving to goodwill with kate. we are going to shop and be fashionable. i take a wrong turn because i'm smart, and end up on rt 16 or something. i take hte 1st exist off, and get on rt 4 heading back to campus. going maybe 50mph. on the side of the road i spot a deer, standing in full majestic deer style, with its head held high and all that. it was quite pretty, up until it bounded out in front of my car. i had already slammed on the brakes at this point, expecting it to do something stupid like that. so instead of bonking into hte door and maybe ending up in kate's lap, it hit the front of the car, went up the hood, splayed across the windshield, rolled over the top, and ended up in a heap behind the car which had come to a shuddery halt in the middle of the road. the deer recovered faster than i did and got up to run off into the woods while i was still sitting there in shock, poking the hazard lights button. i got the car to teh side of the road. a moment later, there was tons of traffic with cars flying past in both directions. not one car had gone by in either direction teh whole time that went on, with me swerving into the middle of the road. if it had happened a minute later i would have been smashed into paste. or wouldve run off into the woods like that deer, who was apparently pretty damn resiliant. i wonder what it thinks happened
here are pictures of my car
sucked, long story short
hung out in the mub, then went to the library and found out that the articles i was supposed to read for class and had been reserved by the teacher had only been on reserve the week before so i dont know what i was supposed to read. came out and magically found dave and colleen. we stood there for like an hour talking
made exciting posters for aegis. my poster making skillz are unprecedented (re: horrible), then went to 2 theatersports shows with kevin and caseyboy. i was eating muffins and got crumbs everywhere
um? nothing exciting, apparently. oh yeah, noises off. i think that was the 1 good thing i did that day
fencing tourny. i sucked. oh well. tho i did have 1 good bout and was THIS CLOSE to beating the pants off of eskin, who is the evil arch nemesis of pretty much all fencers. he's a big ass with an attitude, even his own teammates dont like him. i was up 4-1 (5 touch bout) and he switched to flicks. this basically means he's whipping me with his sword. i brilliantly decided to try the same defense 4 times in a row, and it failed 4 times in a row, and i lost.
went bowling. mike stole shoes. went to nastassia's apartment for studying, which turns out to mean eating icecream and writing songs about all the classes we hate
the test we were supposed to be studying for is tomorrow at 11am. i still havent studied. *fails at life*
the best thing that happened today was talking to geoff while trying to knock heron over. oh, and i defeated the mub doors.
I FORGET WHEN THESE THINGS HAPPENED
oh, well that works.. so i called capitalone about my shittyass credit limit, because i'm sick of going over by 50 cents and being charged 30 bucks when they know i always pay in full. ive never carried a balance. so anyway, apparently their policy is that you can't go over your credit limit for 8 months to be considered (because i guess never having reason to pay off larger amounts proves you will pay off larger amounts better than actually having done it already). but the lady did offer rather unexpectedly to take the overlimit fee off my account, which is cool. so i guess i'm gonna look around for a card thatll give me better options. i have 8 months to see what i can find before it's moot
and i called cumbys...
lady: cumberland farms
me: hi, is todd [manager] there?
lady: yes he is........... did you want to speak to him?
me: well, um, yeah i did
wtf? you're fired! go home! don't answer my phonecalls if youre stupid
anyway, apparently i was fired as well. there's company policy that you have to work once a month to stay on payroll. i thought this was done by calender month, but turns out it's by every 4 weeks, so my working at the beginning of october didnt cover it anymore. oops. so yeah, i'm back on, i'm probably gonna work a couple days at the end of the month and then more over break. and then i'm done with cumbys. i told todd, but he said he woudlnt tell cindy that cuz she'd get pissy and not hire me back. ha. so i guess her christmas present is gonna be me quitting. oh well
from a review of the fisher king:"This was the first of Robin Williams' "My-Wife-Is-Dead-Yet-I-Gamely-Carry-On-Since-I-Am-A-Wacky-Life-Affirming-Guy" roles (see also What Dreams May Come, Good Will Hunting, Patch Adams ... on second thought, don't see them)." that's a good point, why does he keep playing the same character?
on the NANOWRIMO front --- so i can write 46000 words in 4 days, right? i did better than this last year, dammit
i can't wait til the backstreet boys and marilyn manson are playing on the same oldies stations on the radio
it's been a long time since i sat in my car cuz i was depressed and didn't want to move. i didnt miss it all that much. ive been depressed a lot recently. ah well
