There is a reason I avoid the nicknames of couples. . . they’re dangerous things and outside people always look at you funny when you use them. So last night Grant made some comment after I called him “toots.” I do this to everyone at some point in chatting with them. “Ready then toots?” kind of things. So he opted to reply with something like “Okay Sugar Tits.” Barrooo?? (to quote Ash) Uhh. . .what?? Well, I replied with “If you call me that, I’m calling you ‘Sour Balls’!!” This led to him nearly falling over backwards. Actually I think he did. . .he was sitting down. Needless to say, these names are NOT sticking, nor shall they be used. But I found it rather amusing and thought other people might get a nice smile out of thinking just how wrong these nicknames can get. It was all in jest.
On the note of school, I spent Wednesday hopping about sand dunes in Alnmouth. AWESOME! We had lunch on the beech. We counted vegetation in 1m x 1m quadrats (okay, not so fun) and then sat on the bus listening to people have the STRANGEST conversations ever. The back of the bus is where all the fun is. . . We even saw fungal poo! I kid you not!!!! It was a dog turd that had been taken over by white furry fungi. Teehee!!! No, I did not take a picture of it, but it looked very strange. Trust me. I’m sure someone else might have taken a shot of it.
I’ve also decided that I need a flask (i.e. Thermos to Americans). I found one after going into two shops. Mmmmm good stuff. I need to do the whole “pour boiling water in it, let it sit, then fill with desired liquid.” I also need to wash it just for the sake of who knows who else opened the box and coughed in the flask. . . Okay, that’s overdoing it, but I don’t care.
On a VERY boring note I am going to be reading about Soil Science ALL WEEKEND LONG!!! I am also going to write up my survey for ACE8022. Hopefully it will go rather fast. I’m excited about it. . . I’m making a survey on the study of girls (and maybe guys too) who wear Uggs/Ugg style boots. I can’t stand the darn things. They are HIDEOUS. I don’t care how toasty they make your feet, they’re damn ugly. Hiking boots for me. . . at least those have arch support.
Anyways, off to work work work work, dinner, then my television time. Yes, I watch TV for 2 hours every Friday night. That is all the TV I get it and darn it, I think I deserve it.
Ooooohhhhh on Tuesday night Grant and I went to see Swan Lake. Did I already talk about this? I forget. Anyways, some of the ballerinas were WELL FED! What’s this you say. . .Russian ballerinas that aren’t skeletons?!?! It’s TRUE. It was amazing. Yes, the majority were still bony things that could probably rival me for double edged elbows. And then there was the Evil (booty) Magician. He had some serious buttocks curvature going on. I mean really now. . . most of those girls were probably jealous of his rotund derrier (sp?).
Overall the ballet was VERY delightful.
And Aladdin is coming to the Theatre Royal. There are a few strange characters in it. . .along with a few that seem a bit off. Those would be the Daleks. WTF are Daleks doing in ALADDIN?!?!?! One of the ticket ladies heard my question to Grant and she said, “We wonder the same thing!!!!” I felt better then. At least she knew what they were. *snort* Where’s my mom when I need her. . . I nabbed her a flier for it though.
Time to go unload my groceries and see about getting this flask cleaned out.
Next up, the best mixture for hot chocolate!!
