|01:49 am - fun fact: 'britney spears' is an anagram of 'presbyterians'|
so my plans this weekend were as follows: drive kevin to work at holloway saturday morning, be smuggled into aforementioned dining hall by aforementioned roommate for all-you-can-eat + book = paradise. after i've eaten enough to give myself a stroke and read for a few hours, go home, kill time til 7, go see "team america", and go to the commune's anti-superbowl party for the remainder of the weekend, where good times would occur.
my actual weekend was as follows: kevin called friday night to say he didn't need a ride but i could still come and he'd get me in (yay). so saturday i went, with debbie. we got there to find no kevin at the door. instead was some girl who said he wasn't working this week (which he later told me was a lie, but hey). debbie, however, was nice enough to guest me in, and we had a nice brunch, after which i quickly got very sick with the murderdeath flu. by which i mean the normal flu, but i like to pretend my diseases are far worse than average because i am dramatic like that. really i don't know what makes something the flu or not, but i'm taking rob~'s word for it. so anyway, was sick all saturday, thought i was better sunday but it tricked me and i was still sick, plus now had a massive headache, so i ganked some of kevin's (i assume) tylenol nighttime cold and flu from the medicine cabinet. that stuff knocked me out for 14 hours, which is intense. plus, i woke up today all better, for real. so yay!
meanwhile, here is what happens when i read bad poetry and bad philosophy.
at work, there was a corkboard where people put up random shit. one lady has been putting up a ton of weird trivia questions she gets out of a big book. i put up 2 of my own. let's see if any of you are dorks:
1) the word "family" comes originally from the latin word for what?
2) which day of the year is an embolism?
1) famulus, meaning servant or slave
np: Blackalicious - Nia - 15 - Reanimation
feb 29 yo that's my birthday
im glad i left my medicine in the cabinet:)
that stuff is intense, and amazing!
oh that was yours? yay! i guess i owe you some drugs
d00d!!! I know the embolism one because I was the one who posted about that last year!!
It's Feb 29th. Embolism comes from "embolismus" or "intercalation," and means a blockage in the blood stream, and inserted prayer or hymn or something in a religious service, or the day inserted in a leap year, February 29th. Every 4 years, the world's concept of the space-time continuum has an embolism.
What's so fucking cool is I remember all of that from my post last year without having to look up any of that. I'm such a dork!!! YEEEAAAAHH!!!!
hahah yes! and your post was how i knew that exciting fact to begin with. though you remember WAY more about it than i do
and remember, it's every 4 years except! any year divisable by 100 is not a leap year except! unless it is also divisable by 400, then it is still okay except! if it's divisable by 4000 it's not a leap year after all
Hahahah, I love all those exceptions.
Ok, so I was way too fookin' excited at knowing that answer in the my comment above.
And then I actually read under your lj-cut and realized you'd posted the answers, too. I feel less cool now. You have totally ruined my concept of the self-cool for me today. I'm going to cry.
aww it's okay. you knew before you checked, that's hte important thing
