Ok, that wasn't the point of this blog. I did have a focus when I began, but mentioning Catherine's birthday totally got me off topic.
Aaaaah, poor kid. I just witnessed a socially awkward computer and/or math major, who just bought cookies for lunch from the vending machine in the Talmage Building, drop half his meal on the nasty indoor/outdoor carpet. I bet you he would've picked it up and eaten it just the same if there weren't other people around. I mean, I would've.
Oh yeah, I remember what the point of my pointless rant was now--I was going to complain about this ridiculous time of year we call winter. I don't get people who say they love the snow and enjoy the risk of losing part of their face from frostbite every time they go outside. However, as to not be perceived as the pessimist that I am, I will now list the good things about winter.
- Cute coats, hats and mittens.
- Shaving your legs is optional.
- Snow slushies.
- Gaining weight but being able to hide it beneath layers of clothing.
- Have excuses to be social or anti-social. (Let's go sledding! Let's play games at my apartment! OR It's too cold to go outside. I'm allowed to be anti-social and grumpy because I haven't seen the sun in 2 months.)
Ok, that's all I got. This whole optimism thing is wearing on my mind.
Happy Birthday Catherine!
