Isn't it weird to think, after one of those days where you seem to just talk to everyone, "Wow, I talked a lot today!" I don't suppose other "normal" people have internal conversations like that.

I went onto campus today for my 8:30a meeting thinking I'd be a mute today. I talked a lot before the meeting to my group. Talked during the meeting. Talked AFTER the meeting. Went to the TA office, and talked with two other TAs there for awhile. Then went to office hours, and talked with people there, explaining things and how-to's and other things. Went to my mailbox and found one of my group members there along with one of my students making copies in the psychology office, talked with them. Went back to office hours, talked with others. Talked with people after office hours while walking to my parking lot (normally I dodge out and go ahead so I avoid that). Saw another person in my "cohort" on the way, and talked. Went to Starbucks, talked with the cute barista there who apparently has a twin (omg!) quite a bit.

It's just WEIRD. I have the ability to talk, that's not the issue. Just to come home at night and think "I talked a lot today" is just an odd thought to have. Something so minuscule to others was sort of a realization of the day.

To be honest, today I felt more accepted and at ease with myself. Like there's nothing wrong with me. And I love and hate that. There's just nothing wrong with me (fundamentally I mean).

Lastly, the student of mine that I ran into while checking my mailbox thanked me for always answering her questions and helping her. It's nice to know that people do appreciate what you do for them. I've always searched for love and acceptance; I'm always seeking to be helpful because of that. I suppose it helps validate my existence to know that I am worth something if I can help someone. And while I don't expect praise or direct appreciation, I'm glad people have enough respect to give it. I told her that the reason I respond quickly and try to be as helpful was because I would always hope that someone would be willing enough to help me with my needs if I was asking. And really, when I see my students asking the right questions (i.e. asking meaningful questions, not just how to do something because they are too lazy to search themselves), that's enough thanks/appreciation for me. It shows me they are listening, they are doing their best, and that's all I can ask for.

My friend says his mam is having a "do" in his house tomorrow for his graduation and tried to coax us by saying "there will be free beer". One friend fell right for it by saying "well if there's free beer". I've already seen through this. Yes there will be free beer. At most, two cases of it. Now if ten of us show up to his house that means we all have a total of four free beers. But wait!! What about the family members that show up and drink? He'll be lucky to get two bottles. Considering me and a few of the other heavy drinkers need at least a case to ourselves, don't try that "free beer" bullshit on us. :tongue:

There is that. (But no throwing snowballs at penguins! I like penguins. Penguins are off limits!)
It's banter, man. They love it. :wink:

Humans are more likely to bite you before some snake
At least when a human bites me my organs don't fail.

You can just get horrible infections and diseases for the rest of your life if you don't get it treated....

Or maybe it was a cannibal trying to eat you, you never know

I actually believe that for some reason.

Don't want any filthy, tricksy humans biting me.

There is that... we seem to have cannibals roaming about here in the States.

A horrible disease might be better than death. Just maybe...
Your mum dropped you on your head when you were a wee lad, didn't she? Several times?

We're getting off topic here. War is coming to the bottom of the world.
Sounds like the tagline to an action/adventure movie...

My army is ready.
Here we go...

He'll come with me because he knows I'll get hammered with him. Army? Pfft, they be sacrifices if they come anywhere near me. :p
I still think it's cute that all y'all are fighting over me. If I were any less awesome than I am, I'd be duly flattered. But... since I am as awesome as I am... this is...

Well... it's still cute, let's just leave it at that. :cool:

Story time...

It was my friend's birthday and my mother was dressing me up in "nice" clothes that I didn't want to wear to her party. I was pissed off. I had this habit when my mam would carry me down the stairs that I would kick my foot off the wall, very gently, it was basically like "touching" my foot off the wall. Anyway, she's carrying me down the stairs and I do my little habit but because I was pissed off I put all my force into it and knocked her off balance. We fell...

Head hits the ground, bounces. (First impact)
Mam's head hits my head on the bounce (second impact) and knocks it back down onto the floor. (Third impact)

And that's how I got my first concussion! I would later puke on a doctor in the hospital. Moral of the story, don't make me wear horrible clothes. :wink:

this morning my son came up to wake me up at the crack ass of dawn as usual. he won't sleep in on the weekends because he's evil. now I had fallen asleep in the front room on the big couch that's super comfy. I got up and he stole my spot under the blanket while I went down the hall to the washroom. I then made a dash into one of the bedrooms and curled up under the covers.

He came running down the hall saying, mom! mom?! ... there he was standing in front of the bathroom looking into the bedroom opposing the one I was in. (Imagine the letter T. bathroom being on top. room to the left, room to right). he says, mom? and goes into the other bedroom. I throw the covers over my head. He comes out of that room, looks to the one I'm in. I see him through the covers and he says, mom? mom? where are you? and then he runs down the hall towards the front room. I hear him go downstairs, mom? mooooom. mom?!

He was then distracted with a toy for awhile and after some time he came back upstairs. I was still hiding but he finally figured out I was under the covers. He then crawls under the covers next to me and says, mom? wait. his thing lately is to call me by my first name and then mom. like, if my name were sara, it would be, "sara's mom" ... so he says that and says, it's breakfast time!!! ... right in my ear. I say, "let's pretend to sleep! :D " ... he then says, pretend to sleep! and proceeds to pretend to snore. after maybe 5 minutes of that, he then says, It's breakfast time!!! ... Come on buddy! let's go! ...

I say, let's pretend to sleep! :D he says, buddy. we pretended it. It's breakfast time! come on! Let's go buddy! Let's blow this pizza stand!

I then grumpily get up, ALRIGHT ALRIGHT! .... I've been dragging ever since ....



that be my average morning. minus stepping on a toy car. :p

Somehow this reminded me of this.

Your childishness, lol? Somewhere, some non minions are having a good laugh at that.

I always suspected you might be the special minion...

this morning my son came up to wake me up at the crack ass of dawn as usual. he won't sleep in on the weekends because he's evil. now I had fallen asleep in the front room on the big couch that's super comfy. I got up and he stole my spot under the blanket while I went down the hall to the washroom. I then made a dash into one of the bedrooms and curled up under the covers.

I hear him go downstairs, mom? mooooom. mom?!
I do this to my dog. He has a terrible habit of bolting for the basement in the morning so that he can hastily try to collect all his toys (and he has more than most non furry children) before the other dog gets to the basement. He does this whilst barking, growling and snarling... it is the most obnoxious racket. I hate barking in the house. Drives me crazy.

So. When he bolts to the basement, I got elsewhere upstairs and "hide" from him. Since it's usually early am, it's usually dark. Hiding might consist of lying on the sofa or my mom's bed... sitting on the toilet or hiding behind the door in the spare bedroom. If he could speak, I'm sure he'd be saying "Dad?" whilst running frantically room to room. (I am the only thing he loves more than toys, lol.) It takes several times of hiding in the same morning for him to not run down the stairs & bark like an idiot.

~~~

In other news, that same dog woke me at 0500 this morning because he was thirsty. I've been up since. I tried to go back to bed for a while, but couldn't sleep. Argh. I'll try to catch a nap later... party tonight. Don't wanna be all tired before it even get started, after all. That would suck.

My PS4 & games have arrived in the city. They won't make it here today, but... should arrive on Monday. Huzzah! Guess what I'll be doing during my 4 day holiday weekend???

Off to take a shower & put on clothes since I can't sleep. I've not shaved in November... nor do I plan to do so... and I've not had a hair cut in a long while. I look like a... bear? Yeti? Grizzly Adams? Something. Wondering if I should allow my hair to it's natural state today or take a comb to it? Think I'll let it 'fro itself out. I can fix it before the party if it goes horribly askew, lol. (Sometimes, it looks quite ok... like a surfer dude. Other days? Not so much...)

My nephew's friend, Drew... poor lad was doing No Shave November, but yesterday his boss made him shave. What a cunt. It's not like me going two weeks without shaving... he's a 21 yr old boy... two weeks without shaving, he's not much of beard... and it was only going for another two weeks. As long as it was trimmed up properly, I don't get the problem. Fucking buzzkill that guy.

Probably a good thing it was Drew and not me. I'd have told the boss to piss off and quit. Cuz... that's how I roll.

Now rolling toward the shower, yo... (¨) :)) (..) (¨)...

You should see the atrocity I'm growing on my face at the moment. If I get brave I'll post the picture.
