This is the screen mid-documentary.

This is the screen mid-documentary.

So, it has been a while since I’ve posted, which doesn’t bode well. But, to be fair, it is the week before exams and I have been swamped with papers and studying for exams. But I digress… This weekend, the school kicked inaugurated their giant and inordinately expensive new screen for football games by playing a short documentary and a movie.
I packed my bag for the movie full. Included was a soft blanket, a bottle of water, a bag of chips, and headphones.

We stayed for the documentary (because I swear I must have heard my grandfather tell that story eighty times) while happily munching on popcorn. We decided to head out after that because the acoustics weren’t that great to hear the movie and despite the fact that we brought blankets, comfortable seating was not to be found. And this is why we stand up during football games.

Not the world's most comfortable seating.

After that, we headed home and got waylaid at the theater to watch Adventureland, which I would totally recommend to anyone who likes quirky, sometimes awkward movies.Friday night (because everyone knows the weekend starts on Thursday), we went to the improv comedy group on campus. It was good…for the most part. Ha!

Saturday was drinking day. We went to a party that was full of those magical things called jello shots. Ah, jello shots. The red ones are my favorites!

And on Sunday, the rested. All in all, the weekend was good. Too bad Monday had to rear it’s ugly, 7 a.m. Class head.

P.S. I want to give a Birthday shout-out to Sarah at http://sasaphotobloggings.blogspot.com/ She’s totally awesome and fabulous and we all love her.

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.

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.
