Here's Trouble

I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.”
~ Mark Twain

So I've caught myself saying 'wow' a lot recently. This may be due to an above average occurrence of awesome events; it may be due to eyes more open to awesome; or it may be a symptom of vocabulary quietly waning in an environment where it is exercised less frequently than my sporadic gym attendance.

This is you.                           This is you in college.

An Unexpected Update?

"One should expect the expected can be prevented, but the unexpected should have been expected."
~ Norman R. Augustine

While at university, I've found that you have to engineer a few really good conversation starters; witty, memorable, and unique are good keywords to run with. Try not to sound too eager, or too aloof – there's a delicate social balance, and the merest flicker of your own pathetic iniquity will demolish your chances forever. >>

Universe-arsity Begins

"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disclination to do so."
~ Douglas Adams
Hoo boy, has this been a busy few months or what? Anyone else spinning like a spastic bumblebee, or is it just me? Today was officially my sixteenth day as a university student. Things have been crazy enough that I've only just managed to sneak away from the hubbub and faithfully record it for your reading pleasure. So here goes. >>

Epic Analyses of the Dawn Treader: Part 2

“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.” 
~ J.R.R. Tolkien

Welcome back, my darlings, to the Epic Analyses of the Dawn Treader. It's highly recommended that you read Part One so you're not entirely lost. And on a sea voyage like this one, that's not exactly a desirable state.

Think E.T., but here. No phones.

In this issue, we'll be addressing numerous nit-picky nonsenses, bravely sailing beyond the edge of the world to Aslan's country. We truly are the Columbuses (Caspians?) of our generation. But be warned, my good crew: here be monsters.

My Most Recent Traumas: Exhibits A-E

"Close your eyes and pretend it's a bad dream. That's how I get by."
~ Jack Sparrow

This post comes to you courtesy of a very cute little blue and orange two-man tent, whose long years of service and devotion are now being rewarded with the threat of (duh-duh-duuum) a garage sale. I personally think this is the work of the Zombiemobile. It's sneakily plotting behind the scenes to rid us of any alternative accommodation, so when we're inevitably homeless and starving on the street due to its insidious machinations, it can gloat and force us to come crawling back to its filthy confines. Poor short-orange/blue-and-handsome is just an innocent victim of its mind-controlling madness. Fear not, however, for you – yes, you – may be able to save this poor little guy from the horror beyond all horrors: just make an offer. He's really a very reasonable tent.

How can you say no to that face?

Right, I'm done hawking my wares. On to the anecdotes and accounts of daily happenings that we all cherish so.

He, like most of us, cannot contain his joy.
