Subject:What a weird day
Time:3:25 pm.
Mood: confused.
The weirdos are out in force today.

So, normally I don't get many people ringing my doorbell unexpectedly. People usually call ahead if they're going to come by. Today has been the exception.

Caller #1.
Some girl from across the street comes over to randomly ask if I've been approached by a specific scam artist. She describes what they said to her and asks if I've run into the same person. Why me? Because she saw the lady cross the street. Apparently she just randomly picked a doorbell to ring. Who does that? It was obviously a scam. I doubt the SIDS research foundation is out soliciting people for cash on the street.

Some other girl comes around trying to win a contest to Ireland. I'm a bit mystefied at the rules of this contest, since at first, all she wants is a phone number so her "contest manager" can call me to see how "nice and polite" she was. I'm hestitant to give out my phone number, but I agree to the address thing (it's not like she didn't know where I lived anyway). Then she tries to sell me a magazine. "Okay, I think. This isn't unusual. People are always trying to sell "discounted" magazine subscription."

The part that was...downright bizarre was she didn't know what city she was in. Or rather, didn't know how to spell it. When I inquired about this, it turns out she's been through 36 states selling magazines towards her trip. 36! Jesus - wouldn't it be cheaper to just buy the damn trip for yourself? I mean, if you count up the gas bills and time not working... People are so, so weird. Or just stupid.

Oh, and i moved my boards day back. So I have a little more breathing space. But I'd better get back to studying anyway.

Dear Members of the Basic Science of Care 2006-07 Class,

First of all, thank you for your attendance and active participation in this year’s course.

As course directors, it is quite fulfilling to have such an enthusiastic and inquisitive class.

There is one session on February 7, 2007, in your syllabus remaining for the course.

We have elected to offer the time for that class to you to address any follow up questions

related to the course and provide any last minute instructions for the on-line test.

As mentioned in the classroom, the on-line test will be related to the lecture material and readings in the syllabus

and you will have one week to complete the exam.


1. Attendance was REQUIRED. You took ATTENDANCE! On a little sheet! With names!

2. Active participation? I take it you didn't notice the ipod ear buds? Or laptops? Or syllabi? Or people asleep? You know, we actually have a competition thing to take pictures of people asleep. You get bonus points if you can pose yourself in them with the sleeper.

3. I'm sure we'll all give the online test the consideration it deserves.

So, I know you prefer dogs to cats, but...

Riley and I are buds - I have the dubious honor of being the only other person than Beth, her owner, that is greeted with an enthusiastic humping. So, I know dogs pretty well.

Cats on the other hand...Teak is in my lap right now. I came home late after the talent show last night. They hate that - I know, how can I tell? I just can...when I come home from class or some errand they pretty much ignore me. A late night arrival is greeted with insistent meowing and rolling over for belly rubs. So, this morning, I'm sitting here studying and T gets in my lap. It's not a humping...but when I rub under her eyes, she leans up into my hand and closes her eyes blissfully and purrs. When I need my hand back, she snuggles into my lap.

I don't know about you...but the cat way is much more peaceful than the doggy humping.

Anyone want to refute me?

No matter how many nice guys I meet, I feel like I'll never get serious with any of them. There's always a rational reason for avoiding a relationship.

It is nice to sleep with someone though.

"Most marathoners don't mature until their thirties."


And to think, my syllabi indicate that your body starts declining around age 30.

The cute rock-climber I hosted last month was just accepted to my school.

He e-mailed me the same day.

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now. × I don't watch much TV these days. I own lots of books.
I wear glasses or contact lenses. × I love to play video games. I've tried marijuana.
× I've watched porn movies. × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
I curse sometimes. I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.
it goes on...Collapse )

Holy crap. I think I may have inadventantly ended up in a fabulous vacation spot for the summer. Try searching for Polson on Google Image search. This is going to be great...

Thought I'd update this, just 'cause. I don't really want it to go fully inactive, afterall.

My third marathon is coming in about three weeks, and I am in _awesome_ shape. I ran a 22:24 5k a couple of weeks ago, randomly. 22:24 is what I would run in high school on a good day. Considering that my training hasn't been aimed at the 5k in say, four years, I thought this was pretty awesome. I can run 18 miles in the middle of an illness and I'm aiming for a 3:40:00 marathon on May 21st. That's five minutes under my Philly time, and would qualify me for Boston if I made it. I think I'll probably miss by a couple of minutes, but that's okay. A lot will depend on the weather, actually. Mom thinks I'm too thin, but I'm not too worried about it. Who needs body fat anyway?

School is eh, my summer vacation looks wonderful (I've always wanted to travel, I'm planning on scoping out Montana on a number of levels - the thought of moving there has crossed my mind, but I suppose I should see what it's really like before I make any crazy plans).

And I really should be studying right now....I spent way too much time talking to Chapman last night and Anya is supposed to come over later for dinner.

Okay, yeah, studying now.

Babies are a lot of work. Not a lot of hard work, just a lot of boring, drooly work.

I got the room! I am still waiting to get the lease, but I mailed off my deposit! This is just a temporary, one-year thing, but I figure, next year I'll be situated in Pittsburgh and it'll be easier to get my house-mates together to apartment hunt. This coordinating between four cities was just impossible.

I'm think I'm going to have to be more careful about what I post to the other blog. I went through and weeded out a bunch of entries - mostly the ones in which I gave the numbers from my financial aid. I probably never should have made those public in the first place, but I needed to think it through at the time. I wasn't worried about it before, but once I started making my blog available to my future classmates, I decided it was time to be more discreet.

Anyway, things are coming together. I can get the fax for my immunizations off tomorrow - all I'm missing is the varicella titer, which I've made arrangements for. The health insurance is covered, the housing is nearly finished, and my financial aid package should be arriving shortly. So - I'm nearly ready to begin.

This is going to be so cool. I love the house - it is beautiful and all set up. They redid the hardwood floors, stained glass windows, three kitchens and bathrooms, a functional vegetable garden, porch with swing, nicely painted, deep windowsills, cable Internet and all the utilities are established, a block from the shuttle stop, free parking in a nice area....I swear, students shouldn't live this well. I am still in a state of shock that I got the place. And one of the girls is going into peds! She said she'd point me towards the good peds teachers. Oh! and they have all the preclinical books! amazing!

Oooooh, so exciting.

I worry about Dank. Hannah is taking him to California, but no one feels like she has really thought this out. He's a big cat - 14 pounds, big boned - and she is planning a week long road trip. So, he will be crammed into a little box. I worry that she will let him out and then not pay attention to him. He could get lost anywhere along the way. The same thing could happen at her apartment. She isn't very attentive and he could get hurt or lost.

There's a lot of things I don't like about Dankers, and in some ways, it will be a relief when he is gone. But, when he's here on my lap and purring, I feel very bad. The poor guy hasn't known much affection and attention in his life. I would adopt him as my own, except for Tam, who hates him. If me, Tam and Dank are all in the same room, a fight is almost guaranteed. Tam was curled up on my lap this morning, but when Dank came down the stairs and sat down near us, Tam became a furry missile. I'm not sure if he is jealous or what, but I can't have both cats.

Anyway, I can only hope Dank does well on the West Coast and isn't totally ignored.

Scrolling through the last few entries, I realized how negative this journal has gotten. I am actually pretty happy right now...I am days away from graduating with my bachelor's, I'm back on the road running, and I'm almost done my three jobs (tour guiding luncheon is on Wednesday), and my final classes are going to come out fine. My other blog is much more positive, I swear.

One obnoxious IM later I don't feel sorry for her anymore.

Pfft. Glad that got taken care of.

Oh, yeah. I decided on a medical school too. Details in my main blog. Or rather, they will be when I get around to posting.
