What made your day today?
« on: January 18, 2007, 02:53:04 PM »
omg. I'm actually starting a thread *prepares to be maimed*

What made your day today?

Today, we've been having gale force winds and the roof of a building at my college blew off.
So, us actual college students got sent home, so the classrooms we just freed up could be used for the pupils of the school bit. (It's like a combined school/college. Or sixth form. If that means anything to you)
And parent's evening is cancelled.
But they can't cancel school tomorrow because all of my year have an external exam (yeah, so, it's general studies, but it's still an A-level)

Good times.
Should have wished for unicorns.

yay more threads!

...I've heard about those winds. My friend was sat in the lecture hall at uni, and a tree came down over the carpark. T_T  Yet they still have to go to lectures... ((I'm not having nightmares about her being squished by falling trees. Nope, not at all. >.> Stupid imagination...))

XD off 6th-form = YAY. 

...I'm glad I didn't have to take general studies. XD I even got out of doing key skills. Though I didn't actually WANT to get out of that one...

 ((Teacher: Your GCSE grade D is higher than the ICT Key Skills, so it would be a waste of your time. ~ Me:... BUT IT'S A 'D'! Our teacher was FIRED the moment our results came in! And you can't help me strike this from my record??? D: ~ Teacher:...um. No. But you don't have to take the class? Free time? ~ Me: WOES))

As for the thing that made my day...

On wed, in our oral exam, we had to roleplay making a hotel reservation. Um. I may have made one for a Ryuuzaki Umi and Mazda Clef. XDDD ((I'd have said Madoushi, but I've been writing AU recently, so had that on my mind. ^^))

...also, the word Umi has come up in every one of my exams, and was the kanji I did for my calligraphy exam, which is bemusing/creepy/hilarious. XD

Those who read my live journal know that I rescued a dog on Friday.  I was able to get him back to his owner on Wednesday.  During the time I had him, and after, I have been ill.  This is on top of the lovely ice storms we have been having here in the U.S. Because yesterday I was able to leave the house and make it up to the clinic to be seen by the doctor. That was un eventful, I knew what I had, but I was able to get medication for it.

Anyway, to top it off today I was in the shower and noticed a rather odd blotch on my skin. Damn it all to hell! I contracted ringworm.  I am not happy. I paid another visit to the clinic.  Now I have a lovely cream to appy twice daily.  Life is always intersting here. The insanity rarely ends.

...gnyaaaaah. >.<

My family tends to have an out on finding animals - Uncle David's a vet, and lives one village over from my house. ^^;; We just turn round and say HAY! Help? But my cousins have contracted some... intresting things, over time. Never ringworm, though. Eeeek.

((Three trees down in the road where J-chan lives, but nothing's hit her yet. Two more at least down on campus. And, in Norfolk? a PIG STY FLEW ACROSS A ROAD.

... ONLY NORFOLK. XDDD Flying pigs... oh dear.))

Made my day today: Last class! All I have now is the ceremony on Mon, then I'm FREEEEE for two months! Thank God. I'm almost burnt out. >.>

Made my day: Today, my parents booked a holiday in Cornwall in Summer. So I have the house to myself for two whole weeks.
That was nice.


(Yes so, our school is missing part of a roof and we were open today, yet another school in out town lost six roof tiles and was closed.)

...I played Um Jammer Lammy for about 3 hours straight with my friends and much yelling and four letter words.

However, this weekend I have to find a job, read more Jane Austen, and figure a way to whore myself out for scholarships so that somehow I can make it to Ireland and England this summer. 

So, Um Jammer Lammy makes my day.

My christmas presents! Frm my parents! Finally arrived!

Which means that I have a) More Sharpe to read, YAY, and b) GOOD CHOCOLATE! Mmmmmmmmmmm~ also, c) a (short short) novella thing called 'I am a Dalek', which just. Dalek <3!

(There was a Terry's chocolate orange bar. It didn't survive an hour. XD)

Though I spent so long in the cold waiting for it that my arm started aching and I couldn't go to the free traditional music concert thing in osaka. But, chocolate! books! random earrings! overall, good. ^^;;;

Snow! *jealous*

Ah, well. I'm going to visit Hokkaido soon, so there should be snow there. Heee. XD ((Heeee, Daleks! I brought two posters to japan to stave off homesickness - a TARDIS one and a Dalek one. XD))

What made my day (even though it's hardly started yet...) I think I felt an EARTHQUAKE this morning! *flails* XDDD

My first earthquake! A very tiny one. It made my fridge squeak. XD

What made my day today:

Discovering I had dropped a dress size.
Which may explain why all my clothes are too big for me.
It's odd. I don't feel any thinner.
But yay! All the same.

Some of you may laugh at me, but I forgot to post this.   This actually happened yesterday.

You see my friend, Anne,  and I work together doing children's church at a church near my house. She went on a study abroad to England, and came back a few weeks ago.  The first week she was back at work she forgot them. Then we had the ice storms. So yesterday she finally brought me what I asked her to bring me.

Mars Bars!! 

Okay, for those of you who do not live in the US you may not understand why I am so excited.  We don't have them here.  The Mars company claims the the Milky Way is the same bar, but it is not.  I grew addicted to them while I was in Florida, because you see I could buy them there.  But here in Oklahoma, there is no such thing as an international food section in Wal-mart, etc..  We have the Hispanic/Asian section.

So I now have three whole Mars Bars.  I haven't had one in over a year.  I wasn't going to push my luck asking for a galaxy bar.  *laughs*  Now I owe her one pirate costume.

Did you know, in Scotland, you can buy Mars Bars deep fried.
Yes, I know it sounds weird, and I was a little sceptical at first, but the mars bar is all warm and melty and mmm. Good stuff

What will make my day today:
I only have one lesson today from 9 - 10am, after that I have to wait til 3:30pm to go home.

...people claim that milky way and mars bars are the same thing? O_O ...that's actually weirder than calling smarties and mnms the same thing. (Those are, at least, the same idea. kinda. ...)

Never had a deep fried mars bar, though I've been to a chippy where they were on the menu. I have had deep fried potatoe with icing sugar and maple syrup, though? Which was very nice, but confused my brain just as much. XD That was at about 2am this morning - but my new jacket has really made my day today. ^^

((My christmas presents included a mixed assortment of chocolate bars from england, I've been working through them slowly - mint aero today. Mmmmmmmmmmmm~<3))

Did you know they've removed the blue Smarties?
Awful, isn't it?

What made my day today:
I bought a book (for 99p. Bargain.) which was full of little ideas to make the world a better place =D
