Badzeit mit meinen besten freunden, die Gummientchen!

Yey. Bettor. I like to be clean. I heart baths.

So, I thought I should give the update on my fish bowl.
It turns out that Cat--my black, googlie-eyed goldfish--is french. We now must refer to him in polite company as "Le Chat." He has a finely tuned palate for l'escargot, as can be whitnessed by the late Lady Jayne, who is now but an empty shell. I was right about Leelu not making it through the night in that previous post. Apparently fishes can murder with their own pee until there is enough bacteria in the water to neutralize the amonia. So now my little underwater world is only inhabited by the chic Monsieur Le Chat and his possible next meal, Genesis P. Orridge, Yellow Snail, esq. The fishes are suspicious.

John and I were Edward and Kim for Halloween. He's all pretty! Posted by Hello

blog? when?

So, I've been out of the loop of blog-land for a while; working on my grad applications. It's crazy how much there is to do when you have a statement of purpose and twenty pages of writing samples. I even had papers that I started with, but it turns out that making a paper go from a B to an A takes an extra 15 hours of work. SHEESH!
I just got home from dance class, which was good. I decided to not stay for hip-hop class because I broke my pinky toe again. Not even doing something crazy like leaps; I just like to stub it really hard every year or so. It's like an art project; now my pinky bone is shaped like a "Z" and the main joint is nearly twice as big in my right toe as in it's lefty counterpart. Heh.
I saw an ad on the blog log-in space for bloggers who are participating in the NaNoMo; or whatever that National Novel Writing Month is. How are you supposed to keep up a blog while you're trying to write 50,000 words in a month? It puzzles me. These people must not have jobs or lives or anything. I should try that sometime.
I am going to take a shower now.

An update from the land of stress...

Test went pretty well; I got in the 92nd percentile on my verbal, a 5.5 (out of 6 max) on the essays, and a 62nd percentile on the quantitative. Well.... I'm not an engineer, sadly.. but I did get a 670 out of 800 on it; I was bummed that I only really got one geometry-type question, and lots of graphs instead, which I am worst at. C'est la vie. Anyhow, that's not the important score for the lit programs, so I did pretty darn tootin' alright.

I just got my third letter of rec promise from an old prof who is now -get this- PRESIDENT of Smith College. SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET. I'm taking four days this weekend (tomorrow is a holiday, and friday I have comp time to cover), so I can just work on my apps. So, tomorrow, I will work on my writing samples, and try for some vague outlines of the SoP's, then Friday I have a phone meeting with HR (getting laid off at the end of this month, so they're trying to place me on another project), then a meeting with an old prof, then a meeting with a writing coach to see if she can help me with the SoP's.... Look at me; all grown up and getting on the ball like it's my last weekend instead of a month away. good for me! (I will be SSOOOOOO much less stressed if I can work really hard for the next couple of days; it will be soooo worth it. Maybe I will get back my sex drive. (Now THAT's stress, coming from me, eh? heh heh.. )

"Battle Royale" have you seen it??!! It's awesome!

I got some pet fish, but one of them looks like she might not make it through the night. The other one is chipper, however, so that's a good sign. At least I haven't poisoned them or anything. Two cute snails, too.Dancing still, zombies, good stuff and LOTS of change. Scary, but good.
