Wow. I just 'watched' tonight's Red Sox game by staring at the mlb.com Gamecast thing, and hanging out in the mlb.com Red Sox chatroom, bugging people into telling me what was going on. And I kind of enjoyed it. If I hadn't gone over the edge before, I surely have now.
Greenwell, MountainMan, Schi, NYRedSox, Strechii, Kapluver, wherever you all are, thanks for making my day just that much weirder. But weirder in a good way.
Best moment of the game: Kevin Millar hits the ball in the 11th that would ultimately give us the win. The following all came up at once.
It was truly a thing of beauty.
Also, this guy put my 'Keep the Faith... and we'll fly' animation up on his blog. Score. The anim can be found here, if you missed it before.
Bio lab this morning was awesome. We spent the entire 3 hours IDing mammal skulls. I went into paroxysms of glee. See, I could immediately identify the oppossum skull all on my lonesome, because of the large interparietal crest. That sort of thing makes me happy, OK? And I got a nice sketch of an amia ('tis a kind of fish) skull. The rough bit is that we have about 75 distinct bones to memorize for next Tuesday, and that's just on skulls. It'll be interesting to see how they expect us to survive once we get into actual skeletons or, god forbid, muscles.
The best bit of the lab was that our GSI was taking care of a rabbit for one of his friends. He didn't want to leave the rabbit alone for 3 hours, so HE BROUGHT IT TO LAB. Since we weren't dissecting anything today and the rabbit was litter trained, HE LET IT RUN FREE IN THE ROOM. It was a specially bred pet breed of rabbit, so it had fur that was chinchilla-soft. Oh man. I was all over the damn rabbit. I pet the rabbit. I fed the rabbit lettuce. I cuddled the rabbit. I watched the rabbit. I pet the rabbit some more. That rabbit made my week.
It got very cold all of a sudden. It was in the 70s yesterday, and today it's suddenly dropping into the low 40s at night. I admit that I like this weather a whole heck of a lot better than the heat, but it does make waiting for the bus a bit more of a chore.
I got up north for lecture tonight about half an hour early, because I had nothing else to do and wanted to beat rush hour for busing purposes. I was just planning on grabbing some sugar and sitting on one of the art school couches with a sketchbook until class started, but I ran into Emily, so I went and sat in a vacant classroom with her, Brandon, and Greg. They had ordered Tio's delivery. I didn't realize that Tio's delivered to North Campus. Apparently it did take an hour, but that's still surprising. I'm a little wary of Tio's meat products, but their nachos are really quite ace.
I actually could go for some Tio's nachos right now, but No! BAD FelineAnarchist! Bad! Too close to intended bed time! Maybe this weekend if you're good.
And thusly I depart.
