Day 24 - Best quote

This is probably the hardest question so far. There are so many good ones. Practically the first couple of seasons of West Wing in their entirety would qualify. The various quips of Gilmore Girls, So many from Star Trek, Firefly...

I'm going to have to go with one from Star Trek, one that set my imagination aflame so many years ago.

"Let's see what's out there!" Click here and go to minute 8.



Yesterday was a fun, but very busy day. First we went to a baby shower, and then took the girls to Frederick for the First Saturday fun. It's the first one we've been to for quite a while, and the girls were great! Lucy didn't even eat the face of the little kid who came up behind her and hugged her whole body. She showed incredible restraint, and was really on her best behavior. Alice loved all the attention, even the guy who just randomly bent down as he was walking past her to pet her head. Some people really need to be taught to ASK before touching a strange dog. Just because they're out for a walk doesn't mean you can just stick your hand in their face!

Today we went to the MD State Fair. We went early, and left before the Bieberites took over the place. We then stopped by Bust Buy to take a look at the notebook computers they've got. I'm planning on getting one for my school work. After that we came home, had some dinner, and then I did my homework, and I just finished a test (I got an 89%). The most awesome thing is that we've got tomorrow off work because of the Labor Day Holiday!!! Woo-hoo! We'll probably be taking the girls for a hike.

Day 17 - Favorite mini series

10th Kingdom. I've watched it many many times.



It's been a productive day so far today. I mowed the front and back yard, had some eggs and english muffins with coffee for breakfast, brought some junk to the neighborhood dumpster day, worked on homework (I'm polishing up the paper now), and played with the dogs.

Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show

I don't feel guilty about any of them! :-P



This morning I made a most delicious breakfast burrito. I fried up half an onion, about a quarter of a large green pepper, and half of a small potato, then I whipped 3 eggs and a little milk together in a bowl, I poured the fried stuff into the mix with a little shredded cheese, let it cook, flipped it, put it into a warm burrito with some salt and pepper... YUM!

If you couldn't guess I'm off of work today, and doing stuff around the house. As usual the list of things to do is probably more than I'll be able to finish. Top of the list is getting my school work done! I also need to get a bunch of yard work taken care of, some treasurer stuff, cleaning the house, doing stuff with the dogs, etcetera.

Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite t.v show

Seeing as my favorite TV show is ST:TNG, my favorite episode would probably be Inner Light. Measure of a Man, Best of Both Worlds, and Yesterday's Enterprise are also at the top of that list.



Gearing up for school. I did the online intro course tonight, and I need to read the stuff for my class that starts next week. Plus I need to get my book for the class, unfortunately the silabus doesn't seem to want to be downloaded.

I should be more excited, but right now it just feels like one more hoop, and an expensive one at that. I know that having my graduate degree can't be a bad thing, but...

You know, I bet my general outlook on life would be immeasurably improved by cutting the humidity by 40% and the temperature by 20 degrees.

Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching

I can see this meme is going to be a little more difficult for me, seeing that I don’t watch many tv shows now, and I don’t actually watch any of them via broadcast or cable. So the one I am watching, the day after it airs is Project Runway, so that’s my answer.



Last night, instead of being able to really celebrate Lucy’s adoption day, I had to go to new student orientation for grad school. It is remarkably similar to every other orientation I’ve attended. First I had to check in. Then I was supposed to sign up for a parking pass. I got to skip that line because Tigs got it last year. The next line was for my student ID. Long line, slow line, and in the tradition of bad ID pictures I had some hair sticking up. The photographer could have said something…. After that I got to sit with a bunch of other bored adult students for about a half an hour. Just waiting.

Eventually the various administrators shuffled onto the stage, a few of them wearing unfortunately too short skirts. They all introduced themselves, and then proceeded to spend the next hour reading us a power point presentation. Was there useful info in the powerpoint? Yes. Did I need it read to me? No. Two hours after arriving, I was on my way home, with a quick stop at the grocery store.

This morning was incredibly gray. The sky was uniformly gray, without any differences in color or texture. It was honestly a little weird. About half way through walking the dogs there was a brief flash of light. A little bit later there was another. 10 minutes later, as I was getting ready to leave the house the flashes were more frequent, and I could hear thunder. Probably due to the fact that I work to the east of where I live, I managed to avoid the rain, but only just.

Tonight I’ve got election judge training. I actually have to leave now, even though it isn't till 6:30 because it looks like I'll be driving right through another thunderstorm.

Oh Boy...

Time for the TV meme!

It's all written out, just waiting to be cut an pasted into semagic... Except I forgot to e-mail it to myself, and it's at work.

So the TV meme will begin tomorrow.



I haven't talked about it much, but I start grad school this fall. Orientation is tomorrow evening in fact. At this point I don't have any financial aid. For whatever reason the highly overwored financial aid department hasn't processed it yet. This is due in part because they didn't have my SSN. Not that I didn't give it to them, they just.... didn't enter it I guess.

Correcting that took about a week, once I realized the problem.

But then they typed it wrong.

Another week.

For the last two weeks it's been nearly impossible to get through to them on the phone. I was once put on hold for 28 and a half minutes before they decided to hang up on me because they had too many calls. Since then I mostly get a message saying they're too busy, try again later.

I plan on cornering people at the orientation till I get some answers. I'll let you know how it goes.



Tonight I'm taking Alice to agility class, while Tigs and Lucy are off to Soldiers Delight for a hike. It's kinda hot out, but Lucy has been grumpy from lack of personal attention.
