revisionist history

I'm so tired. I'm so hungry. I'm miserable. I should be working on class stuff right now but am not quite sure what I ought to be doing because I'm waiting on a few things (the planners won't be in until next Wed, some of my potential speakers haven't returned my calls, the workstations aren't installed yet so I can't test out my powerpoints, blah blah blah) plus I'm tired and hungry and miserable and can't focus.

registration is HECTIC and that's part of the problem, too. so whine whine whine, i know.

disbandedtoastr and sarahtoalaska did a meme so I'm trying it, too. but really I should just repost Toast's because many of her answers apply to me anyway and the ones that don't are just beyond hysterical.

1.) If I were a doll, the accessories packaged with me would be:
paper products, a Beatles CD, a library card, 23 pairs of converse high tops

2.) I have an irrational fear of:
phones! i'm with Sarah. there would be NO cell phone packaged with my doll

3.) What type of food do you eat at your grandparents house?
none! she would time our visits to our other relatives to somehow correspond to lunchtime and dinnertime.

4.) What weight were you when you were born?
6 something? oddly enough, so was my husband. thankfully we aren't the same weight now.

5.) What would you do if you were stranded on an island with the person you hate most?
i have no idea who i hate most. probably register them for classes. that appears to be where most of my animosity is being directed right now.

Leave. and probably cry. a lot.

13.) Know how to cook?
i used to! then i married a man who loves to cook and am a bit intimidated.

selfishness is the root of nearly all our problems today. thinking that you are more important than other people so you should have your way and the rules shouldn't apply to you.

15.) What is the worst way you were dumped?
i think i was dumped, it was weird. he said his ex-girlfriend was crazy and found out he was dating me and had started hanging out on our dates watching so he wanted to break up for my safety! how INSANE is that? it's practially Springer. i shouldn't even share that.

diapers? or do you mean bad smells from my childhood? in that case cauliflower.

a tomato and possibly his left shoe

greens, blues, teals...and for clothes toss in browns as well.

I got kinda stuck in the capital building in Tallahassee when I was 20. it wasn't stuck IN the elevator, it was stuck on the 20th floor after they'd shut down the elevators. so we ran down 17 flights of stairs, pausing at each level to try to open a door only to discover it locked. by the time we got to the third floor we were so desparate and upset we almost didn't notice it opened for us.
