So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Deep In the Heart of Texas
Monday. 3.1.10 8:37 am
I'm in TEXAS! Yep. Texas. And it's actually an hour earlier than the time stamp says. I'm getting up at the crack of dawn to learn about early planetary nebulae and a phenomenon called "wark-lovering". I have no idea what that is. :\

So I guess there's only one thing left to say and that's:

The Trouble With Facebook Stalking
Friday. 2.26.10 2:49 am
So maybe some of you who have been around for a long time remember my secret crush from a couple of years ago. Well he's a senior now. Yes, he was a freshman when I was secretly crushing on him, let's not get into pesky details.

I ran into him at the train station the other day when I was on my way to Boston. He was with his friend but we got to talking and we sat together on the train and chatted the whole way to Boston. We got along just as famously as ever and recounted all the good old days from three and a half years ago.

At one point he said, "My sister is doing this thing and this other thing."
I said, "Was this your older sister or your younger sister?"


How did I know that he had an older sister and a younger sister? Did he talk about them years ago? Do I just happen to have a really good 3.5-year memory?

He said, "Ah, it was my older sister," and the conversation continued without incident.

Oh Facebook, you demon.

Apparently if you add 4 inches of high-quality (R-30) insulation to your brick wall, you can keep 98% of the heat that you would have otherwise lost through the wall.


If only they would add 4 inches of high-quality insulation to my apartment, then maybe we wouldn't have to kick on the furnace all the time. Not having giant holes around the windows might help, too. Too bad I don't pay for my own heat and therefore have no vested interest in making my house efficient.

Mardi Gras
Wednesday. 2.17.10 9:55 am
Roommate and I had pancakes. Pancakes, blueberry muffins, and Martinelli's sparkling apple cider from New-Year's-themed martini glasses. I didn't do my thermodynamics homework and went to bed at 9pm.

I gave up alcohol for Lent.

Not that I drink that much, but I've been on a bad jag since Antarctica.

The Welshman: "You might as well say that you're giving up fun for Lent."

Valentine's Day
Monday. 2.15.10 9:05 pm
Well, as usual, my friends ruined my plans to have the most pathetic Valentine's Day possible. I was just settling in at work around 5pm when my roommate came downstairs from her office and told me that we were going out.

We ended up getting some ice cream at Friendly's. There was a claw machine, it cost 50 cents per try... we won TWO ANIMALS with $1.50!!!!

L1 won a yellow animal with the body of a bear/dog and the head of a duck. Duck-bear. I won a fuzzy dog.

We took our ice cream and our animals and went to Taco Bell. The guy gave me a free drink because I had to wait for so long to get my crunch-wrap supreme.

After we finished eating all of our ice cream and Taco Bell, we went to the $2 theatre and saw the romantic comedy "Leap Day".

All in all a very fun Valentine's Day.

Love Stories
Saturday. 2.13.10 4:06 pm
"It happened on the Eve of St. Valentine's Day. She was engrossed in her book of impact physics when she looked up and saw him. Their eyes locked across the laundromat. He later said that had she been with a friend he wouldn't have had the guts to approach her to say hello...."

"Ok, ok. You could have just said, 'Angela, I don't feel like going to the laundromat with you.'"

"Yeah, well......"

"I'm hanging up now."


L: I just got a harmonica!
Z: Cool, can you play it?
L: Not really. Do you think it's too late to play it now while we're walking home?
Z: Maybe, it's around midnight.
L: Oh look, we're passing by his house. That's his window, the one that's lit up.
Z: You should make a habit of playing a few whimsical notes every time you pass underneath his window. He'll know that it's you and he'll come to expect that he'll hear them. Then, when something bad happens and the two of you are torn apart, he'll be sitting in his room and he'll always think he hears the music of the harmonica but he'll rush to the window and there will be no one there. Maybe it's an ice cream truck, maybe it's the wind, maybe it's just his imagination. He'll realize how much he misses you and the haunting notes of your harmonica. Then one day, when he has finally given up hope that he'll ever hear it again, the notes will play! He'll rush to the window and there you'll be!!!
L: Hmm... I think you should write my life.
