How do I catch up on everything since Election Day!
I will go weekend by weekend.
The first weekend in November was the National Rabbit Breeders Association Convention here in Minneapolis. My mom had a booth to sell pottery, and I went on Sunday to booth sit while she went to Owatonna. Then, Hillary came and we looked at all the bunnies. Hundreds of them.
While I still favor the noble Rex, my fondness for English Spots is growing. I think that when the time comes for me to get a house rabbit, it will be an English Spot.
The next week, I left after Religion class on Thursday to hop on a plane and go to DENVER for the National Women's Studies Association Conference with Annika, Lucretia, Gina, Christine, Murriel and Jessica Nathanson. It was amazing, and really got me Jazzed for the rest of my academic career.
This Thursday was Harry Potter day, and Alan picked me up at 8 to go get ready to see the first part of the LAST set of movies. We met up with Mitch, Ali and their friend... Laura? At Perkins, and then went to the theater. We were very early, and I ate a ton of pop corn. Eventually, Hillary was able to get tickets, and she joined us! The movie itself was good. I haven't read the book since it came out in 2007, so I was not nitpicking. I really liked it. I can't wait until the next one comes out! I might be in Australia. I wonder what that does to release dates.
Friday, Sara came down from Superior to see The Room at the Uptown Theater with some of her friends. Alan and I went too. Tommy Wiseau was there in the flesh. I had never seen the movie before, and knew nothing about it other than that it is BAD. Sara let me use her spoons to throw. Another very fun experience.
Sara stayed at my apartment that night, and then in the morning Visser and Caite picked us up to go to a Coffee Expo in Uptown. Codey had been really excited about it. The expo was smaller than last year, but I still got my fill of free tea, coffee and pastries. When we got bored, we went to Cody's work and ate delicious Thai food. Then we played video games. Well, they played video games. I worked on my Religion 200 project.
Earlier that day, I got a text message from Oliver asking if I wanted to go to an amateur trapeze show. Of course I did! We would have to leave at 7:30, and I had to get Sara safely to the Northstar train. Because of all this, I missed the Honor's play, which I am kind of bummed out about, but the trapeze show made up for it.
I really want to be an acrobat... Yet another dream. I guess I will just keep doing sit-ups until the day comes in which I need to use my formidable abdomen to hoist myself into the sky.
The show was great. We had front row seats, and everyone was awesome. The last performance even used Moulin Rouge's "Roxanne." After the show, we mingled a bit, and then returned to Augsburg.
There was ice on everything, which made for great sliding. We slid all over the foot bridge, and then, on the way back to Mort, Oliver fell on the sidewalk, so we slid around there for a while too. Once in Mort, Oliver and I parted ways, and I joined with Jenny to watch a sad movie (Friday evening, I watched "Boys Don't Cry" with QSU, VERY SAD.) I wanted to watch more sad movies, so we put in Edward Scissorhands. I hadn't seen it in at least 10 years, and really enjoyed myself.
Random sleeping patterns made last week fly by, and now it is already Thanksgiving week, so we only have three days of class.
Last night, I stayed up until 6am finishing my I believe project. I think it turned out really nice.
Now. It's 7:30. My room says that I should go to sleep now, and do EVERYTHING in the morning. Everything that I planned on doing today, which was a lot, and resulted in a few pages being read about Mendel and Genes, and then some cleaning.
I called my Mom for guidance. She said to get out of here and get more done. So I will... but I am hungry and tired. Argh.
I will try to make a grilled cheese using dinner rolls.
Wish me luck.
