Something I've only just been thinking about, but... I spent most of the summer rooming with L in room 221 (b).  Also, generally L is the quite fit moral support half, and I am the plans and schemes half...


YES THIS IS LEADING TO ANOTHER GEOLOGY SHERLOCK HOLMES THING, I KNOW THAT I AM CRAZY.


But L also had several boys trailing after her wherever she went, while I (following a traditional interpretation of the Holmsian cannon) pined for the far away UNOBTAINABLE.  SO YOU SEE, IT MAKES SENSE, KIND OF.  PUT ON YOUR CRAZY PERSON HAT AND LOOK AT IT AGAIN.
It's just pleasing.  I wouldn't want to really be Sherlock Holmes, because I enjoy having friends other than L.  But also...


In a related but different vein, recently I described to the bro that my method of convincing people is to just logic at them until they give up.  I just like that turn of phrase... LOGIC AT THEM.  I think it's accurate.  earthecho Other internet people who have experienced this may agree.


ALSO, do you see that new icon?  It's pretty cool.  In fact, you could probably say that it's 20% cooler than any of my other icons.  I'm also getting a shirt with Rainbow Dash on it.  I WILL BE A COOL PERSON.  


ALSO ALSO, THIS WEEKEND THE RETURN OF DOCTOR WHO... in Let's Kill Hitler, which is probably the worst best title for an episode yet.


ALSO ALSO ALSO (three also-s!), I am making plans for a house-warming/The Room-watching party... and I think I have found a solution to the "no TV" problem... S has an official club projector... AND I SHALL COMANDEER IT AND USE IT FOR EVIL.



In my next post, pictures of field school!  There will be CACTUSES!  And people who haven't showered in TOO LONG.  And probably some rocks.  Probably a lot of rocks.

SO THERE'S THIS BAND CALLED MISSTER...

nepeta
THEY'RE A C-POP BAND FROM TAIWAN.  I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY'RE SAYING MOST OF THE TIME*, BUT IT DOESN'T EVEN MATTER.

I mean, they're just so awesome.  I could go into everything about why right now, or you could watch the videos... I was going to embed them, but the internet is still a little slow.  Anyway, you should watch them.

SUPER LOVER

BOMB BOMB BOMB

IN OTHER NEWS, today was the first day of class.  It was... fine?  Dr. R seems like a cool guy, and hopefully the class isn't too hard...  As for my other classes... I haven't had them yet.  I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

*So far, they haven't included any of  the Chinese phrases I know in any of their songs.  This isn't that surprising, since all the phrases I know are very useful things like "I will burn your house down," and "We're all going to die."

 "To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting."
E. E. Cummings

I mean, actually the reason I like E.E. Cummings is his poetry, but the quote also.  The quote is good.

IN OTHER NEWS, bills.  GD bills.

IN OTHER OTHER NEWS, my new apartment is great!  AND NO BUGS.  HO YUSSSSSS.  Maybe I'll take some pictures and post them here?  I'm going to try to start posting regularly again...

ALSO, I have a new job!  Tutoring student athletes in geography and geology... I think it'll be awesome, but we'll see!
 
MORE LATER, FOR NOW FAREWELL.

LOOK AT THAT ICON... THOSE ARE LLAMAS, BRO

secret service
I am thinking of doing a 30 day about your identity challenge... does anyone think I should do that?  The posts might have to be f-locked... but I kind of want to do it... I don't know...

SO THAT WAS REALLY USELESS, MOVING ON.

And now what?  Some comics I made for asofterhome.tumblr.com is what!




Yeah.  To explain, A Softer World is an awesome webcomic, and the text comes from there.  The pictures come from an even more awesome webcomic, everyone's favorite HOMESTUCK.  Which if you haven't read... well, you should read it.  But probably wait until you have a few weeks to spare, because it might EAT YOUR LIFE.  In a good way.  Also, these images are totally spoilers!  But NO SPOILERS WARNING HAHA.
 
ALSO, this still isn't the field school post.  I'll get to it eventually.
secret service
 So, this is not a field school post.  It is a SLUG CLUB post.  BECAUSE I AM A MEMBER OF THE SLUG CLUB.

Dr. L had a party at his house yesterday evening.  A SLUG CLUB PARTY.  Also now I have so much dirt on him.  (For example, when they were in the field, they used to mix the 100% ethanol, supposedly for "preserving specimens" to mix with Tang.  You know, because Tang tastes kind of funny, so the natural solution is 100% ethanol.)
The guest lecturer was there too, Dr. H- and apparently he was worse?  I really don't know how either of them didn't die, or how they managed to publish anything that made sense.

But apparently my website skills (such as they are) are highly impressive?  And Dr. L did say he thought I would definitely make it as a geologist.  BECAUSE I AM PART OF THE SLUG CLUB, AND MEMBERS OF THE SLUG CLUB SUCCEED.
 
(oh, also, for earthecho  who may be feeling left out of the SLUG CLUB, Dr. L mentioned you SEVERAL TIMES, and said he wished you weren't sick, so that you could be there)
 
ETA: I forgot, but also: Dr. L has a bluetick coonhound!  Named Blue!  SHE IS VERY CUTE, ALMOST AS CUTE AS BEAU :)

80 YEAR OLD MAN WRESTLES DRAGON

 So, okay, this is a post.  It is a quick post, because I have a test tomorrow.  But I had to share this link, because it is awesome: Myths Retold.
Yup.  It's awesome.  I especially recommend the 3 part Beowulf, and ALL OF THE NORSE.

IN OTHER NEWS, I made a new necklace.  It's a wire-wrapped d20.  So that I never have to go anywhere without my d20 again.

MAKING A POST, MAKING IT COUNT

secret service
Rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated.

Since my last post, I have: NO WISDOM TEETH, USED A BRUNTON COMPASS, PRESENTED A POSTER AT A REGIONAL CONFERENCE, REGISTERED FOR CLASSES, CONTINUED TO BE A SPINELESS WEIRDO IN REGARDS TO OOMA, HELPED OUT AT THE BRO'S EAGLE COURT OF HONOR, MADE A SEA-LEVEL RISE WEBSITE, SIGNED A LEASE FOR NEXT YEAR, AND STARTED READING HOMESTUCK.

That is at least NINE things, and that is A LOT.
 
So, yeah, I've been a little busy.  And it will only get worse... but I WILL TRY HARDER THIS TIME TO KEEP POSTING.
 
Btw, if there is anything on the list you'd like to know more about, just leave a comment, and I will GIVE YOU DETAILS.  ALL OF THE DETAILS.
 
 
 

 

SOMETHING SOMETHING SOMETHING

princess arthur
THAT'S HOW I REMEMBER STUFF.

Ok, so, I have a twitter, right?  And I follow people, like one is supposed to... and what this is leading up to is JAMES FRANCO IS SUCH A TROLL.  TROLOLOLO.

That was of no importance whatsoever, but I felt like it needed to be said. 

ALSO HOMESTUCK THE BROTHER WAS SO RIGHT ABOUT IT I AM HOOKED.  IT IS SO AWESOME SOMETIMES I WANT TO CUDDLE IT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.  
It's just like... epic.  And everything.  It has emergent properties, man.

ALSO ALSO, hairs cut.  A person of my acquaintance (earthecho ) may be getting one, and hopefully it is awesome, so that I don't have to pull out "the hair-or the hair-or" tag, which only makes sense to people who've read Heart of Darkness, anyway.  Also, a bad haircut would be bad.  But mostly Heart of Darkness references are silly.

EVEN MORE ALSO, there was smoke all over in Athens this afternoon!  Apparently it was from a "controlled burn" in Putnam county.  But wherever it was from, it gave me all kinds of problems.  At least it's supposed to rain, which should take care of it.  Or something?

THE END

THIS POST WAS BROUGHT TO YOU BY ME BEING REALLY TIRED AND ONLY SEMI-COHERENT.  AND ALSO JAMES' FRANCO'S BODY PILLOW.

NOT LOOKING UP THINGS

secret service
Well, I'm procrastinating... right now I should be looking up 20 references (at least) for my Marine class...

IN OTHER NEWS, I am going to GSA!  To present my poster!   So the world will be able to learn about lithium-bearing pegmatites IN GREAT DETAIL.  GREAT DETAIL I SAY.

ALSO, I packed no lunch today (because I got up a little late) so I am trying not to feel hungry.  I will probably give in before too long and get some coffee, because that's the same as lunch.  COFFEE.
