I haven’t contributed to Terry much these days, which makes me feel like a horrible blogger. So I’ve decided to do a weekly or bimonthly column (depending on how busy I am) on random things that have happened to me throughout the week. Hopefully it will bring a touch more “thoughtful light randomness” into this world. Do not expect to be challenged intellectually.
Monday: a discovery of the NY Times’ Monday blog which synthesize consumer-focused stories. Good for beginning-of-the-week procrastination.
Tuesday: N1KD (aka. Night of a Thousand Dinners) happens. I didn’t go but read up on landmines to assuage my slight guilt at not helping out a worthy cause. Plus apparently Dr. Sens found himself in a suit, which leads me to wonder if he wore a Hawaiian shirt with it.
Wednesday: Two papers due in geography and french yesterday. The stress leads me to create a birthday mystery for my friend that is overseas in Greece. I send her five clues to solve spread over a week or two, at the end of which she gets her present. Holiday gift idea anyone?Plus, Glee was on and I love me some musical jazz hands. This week’s episode: “hairography”. Love.
Thursday: Found about Mr. Frederick’s interesting approach to combating rising tuition fees (more discussion here). This led me to worry about my finances and therefore think about applying for a job at the airport. On an unrelated note, found the tidbit about the couples that trespassed at Obama’s state dinner quite funny. Also, loved the First Lady’s dress. Pretty.
Friday: Got some presents at the holiday gift fair in the SUB. Also searched for some eco-friendly gift ideas. I wonder how my 8 year-old cousin would like the gift of a tree?
That’s my week. If you like bits of randomness as much as I do, let me know so I’ll do this weekly instead of well, randomly.
