Finish the following...

"We're tiny, we're toony..."

"We're the Animaniacs..."

"Do the Carebear countdown..."

"Earth! Fire! Wind! Water! Heart!..."

"Ch-ch-ch-chip and Dale's - Resuce Rangers!"

"Duck Tales! Woohoo!..."

"Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo Inspector Gadget..."

"Heroes in a half-shell..."

"They're Pinky, they're Pinky and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain..."

"In West Philadelphia born and raised..."

If you can finish these, you grew up in the 80's and 90's.

Send good thoughts!

My Grandpa is having heart surgery on Tuesday, so please send good thoughts our way! I'm sure he'll be fine, and this way he'll be a lot more comfortable.

So far I've gotten two marks back, both B+ :( I worked hard in these classes, and I wish I'd done better, but I guess it wasn't to be. No big worries yet though, as the marks to come back still are the classes I should do very well in, and as of right now my GPA for the year is still a 3.9.

Something to ponder...

#1 song on the US charts the day I was born: "Maniac" by Michael Sembello
#1 song on the UK charts the day I was born: "Red Red Wine" by UB40

Life song US (#1 on 18th Birthday): "I'm Real" by JLo
Life song UK: "Mambo #5" by Bob the Builder

Well, not sure what to think of the first US one, and I really, really hate that second US (and the UK Life) song...:P I like the the first UK song though!

Check yours here.

Not sure when blogging will pick back up again, as Sean is back home (yay!) and I still have an exam left. I made another wrister from Knitty (pictures later), and I have to make a beer can cozy for Scott from Geology.

Happy Belated Birthday to Angela!

This is a marvy skirt I made from a thrift store pillowcase. I cut off the bottom edge where it was sewn together, then folded it over on itself to a length I liked, making a lining in the process. Then I put a zipper into the existing seam, made that the back, and added four darts. Helllooooooo skirt that looks like the one from the expensive Asian Boutique on Osborne!

I finished my bus socks last week, but hadn't posted them cause I was just way too busy. I loves them, they're comfy (especially after a run through the wash) and loverly. I can't wait to start some new ones!

Almost done classes

Almost done classes. My Geochem lab exam went quite well (85), I wrote my class final and handed in my term paper for Historical Arch., and I also handed in my term paper for Engineering Geology. That just leaves my Igneous and Metamorphic lab final, and then of course all my regular lecture finals.

I'm starting to get excited about buying the stuff I need for Field School and work in Red Lake.

And now I want to shoot whoever's car alarm has been blaring for over five minutes outside. I hate those things.

Still no knitwear pictures (sorry) but I've been busy with school. My Geochem lab final went quite well, and I finished my Historical Arch. assignment. These assignments are things like ceramic dating, or determining original ethnicity of settlers from place names. They're usually about 12-14 hours of work, 1,000-1,500 words. So I'm glad the last one is done and I can hand it in today (technically, a day early!).

I still have my Igneous and Metamorphic lab final, a lab assignment due for that class (due before the final next week), I have to put the final touches on my Engineering Geology term paper, I have to write my Historical term paper, and study for the Historical final on Tuesday. No restful Easter for me!

Oh, and two other bits of news: My sister, who works at the *very* nice and fancy restaurant in my hometown, served Stephan Dion last night! Bad news though that Sean's first cat (who has lived with his parents since he moved out) got very sick a day or two ago and they put her down this morning. I loved Hobbes, she was orange and very cuddly, with a smattering of black across her nose.

It's amazing... clean my apartment gets when I have term papers to write.
