oh wait. so blogger informs me that my page has “been locked by Blogger’s spam-prevention robots” – um…what?! so i suppose i will write this but y’all won’t see it until some human over-rides these “spam-prevention robots” and informs the higher ups that i am, in fact, not a spam blog. (this makes me seem like a blog primarily made up of canned processed meat-food, which is disturbing, and these robots remind me of those matrix electrical sucking spider/squid things. very technical, i know, but a look into the mind of a tortured grad student. ooh! shiny objects!!!)
yesterday was mental health day, a sort of “happy camel day,” if you will. i cancelled my class, graded their exams instead, and *shocked sharp intake of breath* skipped my philosophy class. i also finished my laundry (instead of dressing in the living room out of a laundry basket every morning,) washed my dishes, took out the garbage….so nice. mom and dad offered to come up for dinner, but jesse and i had already made plans to make eggrolls (so the truth comes out, i didn’t take out my own trash) and they deferred till later this week. (yay! something to look forward to!!) we made close to 30 eggrolls, most of which were frozen for future consumption. clever clever clever. i also did all of my MWF homework for the week, finished most of thursday’s homework and looked over my thesis proposal. (and re-stacked the pile of source books in my room as if i had actually read them.) i also sight read some caesar and some virgil. anyway. i’m going to meet colleen to read some hymn to demeter before class.
i love you all so much. i don’t think that i say that enough. i pray for you all.
