Birthday Bash Bummer

So, after class I headed to the Junction for the big bash only to find…nothing. They were out of what little they had and it just seemed like a pathetic excuse for Vault (the soft drink) to come onto campus and pimp their product. Last year was so good and well organized. This year was such a bust. Sad. So we headed to a near-by restaurant we happen to like where I got something infinitely better than a hot dog (even though it cost a lot more…).
Penne with Gorgonzola, blackened chicken, applewood bacon, green onions, portobello mushrooms, and red peppers in a cream sauce. It was SO good.

So, the party was a bust, but hopefully tonight will be better. We have a brand new HD screen at our football stadium that is just HUGE (it cost $70 million) and they are playing Remember the Titans on it tonight to inaugurate it.


Music and Well…Music

So many things. First and foremost, I feel jipped. And by my own obliviousness, no less! Pete Doherty released a solo album a full MONTH ago and I didn’t even know it. I need to rectify this situation as soon as possible and buy, buy, buy. Thank God I have an iTunes gift card.

And my University is celebrating it’s (106th?) birthday today. Which means, of course, that there will be free food, drinks, homemade ice cream, and live music. I am so jazzed. I’ll have to post pictures later. As a side note, I go to an old Ag school (which now means nothing), and there are still some vestiges of that left, including the fact that we make the most amazing ice cream here on campus with all of our own ingredients. Seriously, it is SO good.

Stitch and Bitch

Good morning, everyone.

With the weather as lovely as it is, it is a shame that I am stuck inside a room with all the blinds pulled and power point slides about the upstream discharge of a river channel. Seriously. But I really am glad it has cooled down a bit after the unseasonably warm weather last week (80 degrees!) and while I am wearing a hoodie (which, yes, I know, is the college uniform), I am still rocking out the flip-flops.

On to other things…I started a scarf maybe two weeks ago and it was actually going okay. Not great, but it is the first thing I’ve ever knitted. Well, actually, it is the second. But the first was such a travesty that I have blacked out that memory. So the second, which I am now calling the first, needs to be picked up again. Here is what it looks like so far:

Knitting Beginning

See? It isn’t so bad. Just really, really short. Not much of a scarf yet, is it. Which is bad on one hand as it is April. On the other hand, this gives me months to finish! I need encouragement.

Third Time’s a Charm

Or fourth…or fifth. I am terrible about keeping blogs, but in my goal to write daily and try to post a photo-a-day (of…whatever I see), I am going to try yet again to get this thing off the ground. So here’s to hoping! Cheers!

As I don’t have my camera on me (which I guess doesn’t bode well for the picture plan…), I’ll just post a picture of where I want to be right now.
