The Count was a vampire! A number-loving one

I know it’s been a few days but I haven’t been totally ignoring the blog. I actually started writing up a post on Monday but just never got around to finishing it. Things have been busy this week but come Friday it will all be good.

I’ve spent the past two weeks working on my final accounting project, finishing up accounting homework, prepping my notes for my accounting final along with working on the past few case studies and working on my take-home exam for my operations management class in between my real work for the job [the boss was out of town so I made sure to keep busy]. But the end of the tunnel is near. Like super near and I’ll be one happy grad school student come Friday morning when I’m officially on break for two glorious weeks.

Say, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Now if I could only figure out what I’m supposed to be doing for this last problem I’d be all set, but I have a feeling I need my book for this, which is sadly at home. Oh well.

I’m hoping I can figure something out since this problem is worth 15 points. I need those points, even if it’s only half of them.

Hopefully I can figure something out because I don’t even know how to label the crap I have. It’s so bad I can’t even fake it!

That and it’s due tomorrow. So um, I’m pretty much out of options at this point. Good thing I finished the rest of the exam.

Oh I have an update on the vampire neighbors: at least two of them are NOT vampires. At least, not normal vampires. They could still be backward vamps. But anyway, I saw two of them walking around outside Sunday morning. Yeah, I know: so utterly disappointing. I guess I can still dream about the others being vampires.

All the while making mental notes to never invite them into the house.

My ode to joy…

Lindsey will be returning from her first full year of college today, back to the house we’ve shared since forever. And while I’m happy to have her back, I’m sad to be losing a good friend.

This is not a crack on my sister, but one of the things I have been looking forward to since she started her junior year of high school was the day that she left and I got the entire bathroom to myself. And you know how sometimes you dream and think of something so much that when you finally experience it, it ends up being kind of a let down? Well not this. Having my own bathroom was EVERYTHING I had ever thought it could be and more! It was always available whenever I needed it. No having to run for the shower to be there first, no waiting around to be able to wash my teeth, no coming back to seeing the flat iron still sitting on the counter the day after it’s been used. But the best part: not having to clean the bathroom all the time!

It was glorious! It stayed cleaned and I only had to do spot treatments every week or so and oh, how my heart thumped when I cleaned the bathroom and came back the next day and IT WAS STILL CLEAN! Just like how I left it! That, in a word, was awesome.

I lingered in the bathroom a little longer than normal both last night and this morning just to savor the last few hours before I have to return to life as a bathroom sharer.

And I know that eventually soon I’ll be sharing my bathroom with a boy for the rest of my life so you know I’m definitely enjoying these moments. But I’m not worried; the bf is a really good about keeping a space clean. He doesn’t like clutter at all. But for now I’m not and I’ve enjoyed it tremendously.

So dear friend, this isn’t goodbye. I’ll see you again in late September.

“Darling, not tonight. Why don’t you use the robot?”

Levy predicts Massachusetts will be the first jurisdiction to legalize human-robot marriage. “Massachusetts is more liberal than most other jurisdictions in the United States and has been at the forefront of same-sex marriage,” Levy said. “There’s also a lot of high-tech research there at places like MIT.”

This is so utterly wrong.

Especially the part when Levy alleges that some people who are “just plain ugly or have unpleasant personalities” will be interested in such a development.

Just because it’s possible doesn’t make it okay. The end is near folks. The end is near.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

But I don’t want any more!

So Britney’s new video debuted today [right?] and after some searching online, I found it.

I’m hoping the resolution of the video is better on the television but it was hard to focus with all the quick shots and weird angles. And I’m hoping this wasn’t the right version of the video; that the real one hasn’t been released yet because this one is disappointing; even though I had no expectations whatsoever.

This video makes me miss the old Britney. Who woulda thought?
