Yes, I should be in bed. I will be heading there shortly. I have a deadline tomorrow (today) and I'm so worried that I'm going to wake up and it will be past the cut-off time that I'm doing all I can to be almost completely ready now.
As it is, there have been some awesome short tidbits of conversations with friends recently that make me smile.
Sister: I've been worried about you and your iodine.
Me: Oh, I'm fine. The doctor says I'm healthy.
Sister: Good. Did you know that today is the birthday of Marie Curie? And her research killed her. Of course, she was doing it with a man she loved, so I suppose that helped. :-)
(This is not meant as a slight to Marie Curie or to her research or husband. I just found this adorable in light of the fact that my sister was worried that my research was killing me)
Friend: I'm kind of worried about getting these notes to Dustin.
Me: Why didn't he come over here and study with you?
Friend: <shaking her head> I don't know.
Me: Did you ask him?
Friend: No. <light bulb switches on> That's probably why.
Sister: Alexis' new favorite word is 'no'. I ask her, 'Do you want milk?' She says, 'no!' 'Do you want water?' She says again, 'no!' I offer her a banana, 'Do you want a banana?' She speaks up again, 'no!' But really, she did want the banana.
Me: <laughing> I think it's about time for her to start learning 'yes'.
Friend (native Japanese): I was in the store the other day and this person said my son was adorable. I had no idea what she meant.
Me: That's a good thing.
Friend: Adorable sounds like the word for 'thief' in Japanese. I thought she was calling my son a thief.
Today was a good day:
I got dressed up in a beautiful yukata.
I saw my friend 'Shuai Ge'
Did UKiss really just say, "Don't deny the R-squared Pi" in their song? Because that's hilarious and as fabulous as my high school's cheer: "e to the x dx, e to the x dy, sin cos cos sin, 3.14159..." Nerds unite!
