Lately...

It's been kinda gray in Canton. I'd be lying if I said I didn't like it...
Looking forward to the weekend already (as usual).

My dad just sent me this picture in an email, he's a funny guy - it's called "drunk pumpkin." I figure it's timely:)

Dear Bloglord, please forgive me...

It has been 4 days since my last blog.
I hate when that happens...

Also, sometimes I forget how awesome Nightmare Before Christmas is..

You know it's bad...

When a classmate says you look tired and then you look in a mirror and realize they were being kind by leaving it at that...
I got up at 5 this morning to get back to Canton for an 8:30 test in embalming.

I don't think I've ever been driving at that hour before (and in September). There's a fine line between darkness and light. One moment it's pitch black, the next it was dawn. It happens so quick and is so pretty. Two cups of coffee and two classes later and I am done for the day and ready for a nap...I think I will go back to this home away from home and read some comics. That will be most relaxing.

In unrelated news, I take back ever putting up a stink about getting a Wii. The Hopkins household are now proud owners of the game system and let me tell you - FUN! So fun, I wish I was there right now playing! Add something else to my list of why I love Fridays! Hopefully I'll get in some good game time this coming weekend.

Chronic Decay is playing this Friday night at Trinity Church (I think you should go!).

...and so on...

I'm trying to pretend that I don't love the Sex and the City movie as much as I love muffins and coffee in the morning...and sushi and white wine for lunch....
Mandroid scored me a copy of the movie and I can't help but be glued!
Now I sit by spider tea light candle (it's almost Halloween!) with white wine in hand wishing I lived in New York City with all that wonderful fashion sense...


Also, I feel like such a goomba. I bought a copy of "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," and then I realized I already have it. I thought I only had it on VHS and so I bought it AGAIN! I returned it today and then bought a pumpkin scented candle....
I'm so excited for when I'm done school...it's almost here, the end is in sight...

I know it's early...

But I'm ready...

















Also, do you think I could pull off being Angela for Halloween? What would I need to do? Is this not creative enough? I already have a shirt with my cat on it, but I don't think that's enough. Maybe I could dress up as Angela from the Halloween episode...hmm...what to do, what to do...

Question.

Why is it all over everything that Jennifer Lopez finished a triathlon? Seriously people....

Now if she completed a Lumber Jack race, that would be another story...

The British lost!

The Battle of Plattsburgh was totally awesome. I've never actually watched any part of the re enactment until this year and I thought it ruled. And the best part of any parade (to me) will always be the bagpipers.

Also, I wonder sometimes if Poopy hates me for putting silly things of her and then taking her picture....













(Back to the Battle of Plattsburgh) At one point, J called it a Schrute Fest because he thought it was something Dwight would really be into. He said it when these soldiers were walking by...













I think the guy in the upper left hand corner looks like he could be Dwight...

More moments with my roomate...

"I'm over here doing my homework and you're over there watching a virtual dog show."

Me to my roomate while she was playing her SIMS game for 3 hours and I was researching General Motors....

*breathing in deeply noise*

Smells like fall out here....

LOVE IT! I love the smell of fall leaves...

Had body lab this morning. No big deal anymore though.....

2 more days to go....then home :)

...

...Friday can't come soon enough!

What a drag...

So it seems that being at school is keeping me away from the internet more than I would like. It kinda sucks.
I hurt my back for the first time (not counting the 2 surgeries), and I think it's just starting to get better today. Pain sucks, maybe it's just a sidebar of getting older...
Well, I felt like I had a lot more to say, but now that I have the chance, I can't think of any of it. Oh well, isn't that always the way?
I guess now would be a good time to get started on some homework - BORING!
I hate not being at home. I can't wait for these 2 semesters to be over. Hopefully it will go by fast. Being away isn't good for my well being!

Uhhh.....

I got nothin' really....
  • Getting lots o' school work done like a big dork.
  • Started re-reading the Watchmen and really like it this time (as opposed to 2 years ago when I first tried), although now I feel a little trendy reading it since the movie is being so publicized. Oh well, I can read what I want!
  • Drinking coffee likes it's my job (I think I will make it my job since I don't have one already)
  • Tomorrow is Friday and I get to come home!
The end.

I miss my babies...


(Poopy doesn't have a lazy eye in real life, she did it strictly for the photo session)

Scenery.

The leaves are changing!

Pretty!

September 1st...

And just like that, we are all the more close to fall.
The drive to Canton is usually pretty mundane. This mornings trip was made a little more pleasant. I sometimes stop and get coffee and a gas station/eatery in Malone. They have so many different flavors that sometimes it takes me a minute or 2 to decide exactly which flavor I would most like to enjoy. Today, however, there was no choice. You see, with September 1st comes the the first of the seasonal flavors of coffee. PUMPKIN SPICE! Have to get it while I can! So good! It made the journey back this morning a little nicer than usual :) Now I can look forward to Friday for more than 1 reason (the obvious being that I get to be home with the other half of Team Scuba)...I can get another cup of yummy pumpkin spice on the way home...oh Friday, you can't come soon enough!
