The things one does late at night...

It's not often I'm still creatively functioning by 11pm at night, but on the occasions when I am, interesting things can happen.

Tonight, for example... or rather, last night since it's now this morning.... I was chatting with the boyfriend and I look out the window to see a firetruck and an ambulance parked in the street by my dorm.  Being curious, I of course stood by my window to see what was going on and ran down the hallway to look out the window at the end and get a better view.  Nothing was happening though, so I lost interest and went back to chatting, reassuring Paul - who was concerned that my curiosity might get me into trouble - that I had stayed inside, and I only would've gone outside to see what was going on if there had been police cars and people running around.

He mentioned a murder for some reason, and before long we'd come up with a plan where - if I went outside to see what the excitement was about, bumped into the murderer and was taken hostage - he would come find and rescue me, propose and win the lottery all in the same night.  With the money from the lottery and the reward money from catching the murderer, we could then drop out of college and elope. 

He dozed off around then, and I ended up figuring out whether or not a murderer would be more likely to take me hostage or just kill me... and then, if I got hostaged (yes, as of tonight, that's a word) by drug dealers if I would stay alive longer if Paul was taking too long to rescue me.  I think I decided that I'd stay alive longer with the murderer who would only have a knife and/or a gun, and the knife could get dropped and the gun run out of bullets from shooting at the cops.  The drug gang, on the other hand, would probably have knives, guns and plenty of drugs they could give me an overdose of to kill me with.

The above comment prompted a status update on Facebook, which then led to a 119 comment conversation between two friends of mine and me - the outcome of which was that a) if Paul and I ever eloped, Paul would not stay alive for very long and b) we're going to have awesome bachelorette and bachelor parties - my party will be Doctor Who/Fairy Tale themed and his will involve paintball and swords.  Oh, and my wedding colors are now Tardis and Our Lady blue...

And then I left that conversation to go hang out *cough* quietly *cough* with some floormates, practice my angry ghetto face and hide in the bathroom.  Now it's 1:40 and I'm still not tired... I think I'll go do some French homework...

Little Update and Photoshop

I actually have a minute to breathe this morning, so I thought I should do a brief post since I've been neglecting this blog recently.

Yeah, it's week 5 already - half way through the term!  I have absolutely no idea where those first five week went to... it seems like I just moved back in yesterday.  I had my first midterm yesterday and it did go better than I thought it would.  It was in science though, so I'm not holding out too much hope for an A.  If I get a B, I'll be very happy with that.

Something non-school related... oh, I've watched the first three episodes of X-Men Evolution.  I think I'm hooked.  I just met Rouge this morning and I'm very excited to see more of her in the upcoming episodes.  And the episodes are only 20 minutes long... which works out great for in between scheduled stuff or as a brief homework break.

Busy day today... work, a work related seminar, meeting for more work and then my photoshop class.  Assignment 3 is actually due today, or at least I can assume so since we talked about it last week in  class.  (Let's just say our professor doesn't always communicate the best on assignments...)  This weeks assignment was a photo essay, and it had to tell - well originally just some sort of story, but now apparently is has to be deep, compelling and have some sort of profound meaning to it.  Which probably just means, she has to be able to understand and connect with it.  Forget about what kind of meaning it has to us.  So we'll see how that goes.  I decided to go dark and depressing and hope that she thinks its meaningful enough...
