Woah Big Mama...Woah

Okay-so a LOT has happened in my life since I last posted. Mostly cause I'm a busy little bee with a wealth of interesting and exciting things occurring around me at all times. Okay so nothing really that cool has happened. I'm going to blog about it anyway.

Basically I've only got a couple things. I will blog about them systematically.

1. The fact that Andrew may actually be slipping into insanity.
Andrew called me today and in a very cryptic way informed me he had kicked down a door. Yes... that's right. KICKED DOWN A DOOR. Why you ask? I don't anymore... It's just not worth it. Plus he's going to tell me whether I ask or not... trust me. 
Apparently the young chap was attempting to get into a door that had been locked from the inside. The lock had been deteriorating for quite some time and finally got to the point that a key could not be removed. Instead it just broke off. Leaving the lock useless. It had been locked anyway... leaving all outside unable to enter the home. It just so happened that the "all" that I speak of happened to be all of the inhabitants. He couldn't unlock the door... so he kicked it in. 
He then informed me (in a tone filled with more surprise than I would like to admit) that the trim around the door had come off. What am I doing with my life?

2. After about a week of calling the Willabong finally got ahold of me
I was sitting at home Monday night when I got a most exciting phone call from none other than the South Korea Dwelling Willabong. (This is where I leave out the part about me trying to figure out how to iChat with him for about 20 minutes to no avail). As is customary the Willabong entertained me with several tales of foreigner-based confusion (the state of being not the band). That was cool. I'm pretty sure he's going to marry a 30 year old Korean woman with a son about 5  years younger than him. Way to go WB... Big Mama is swelling with pride. (or maybe it's ice cream that's making me swell... whatever).

3. I have actually managed to procrastinate to a point that not even I am comfortable with the situation. 
I have a lab report due tomorrow that I was trying to start just now. The problem is that I just realized I need things from my lab bench to complete it. And I've already driven over there twice tonight. Looks like it's not getting started until tomorrow morning. It's a good idea...I swear... (maybe?)

That's all Big Mama's got for you.
Big Mama Out

chocolate + caffeine = science!

So here I sit in the lab at 7 o'clock on a Friday night-a night that up until noon today was supposed to be date night. Apparently my cells don't care that Andrew and I never get to see each other...

ANYWHO... People have begun noticing my squirrel-like tendencies in lab. To explain what I mean I will say this: Anyone who knows me knows how Big Mama gets when she's hungry... Not pretty.

In order to counter-act this unfortunate inevitability of long and sometimes abnormal hours at work I have a tendency to hide snacks at my lab bench. I currently have: A box of granola bars, an apple, and a 1/4 full container of chocolate covered espresso beans. Squirlly-I get their point. To cut to the chase though the last has become my favorite daytime snack (take note if you are responsible for providing me with gifts on holidays [hidden agenda of this whole blog]).

So here I am...staring down the long, narrow, pasture pippette of a 3 hour evening spent with just me, my spheroids, and my chocolate covered caffeine injectors.
Oh...and the paranoid fear that someone is stalking through the halls of the Biology Building East attempting to kidnap and torture me (an unfortunate but managable side effect of the snacks...)

"It's amazing what they can do with technology these days."

This was the comment that my boyfriend (AKA grandpa Dahm) made this morning when we discussed the conversation we had with Big Wilkinson on his ibook last night.

These are the facts:
a. The big dog daddy moved to South Korea about a month ago.
b. He has been one of Andrew's best friends since forever and one of my main outlets for eccentricities since Andrew and I started dating.
c. We miss him.
d. We video chatted with the OG gangsta himself last night with our Macs.

Now that you're up to speed you understand how hillarious it was to me when Andrew very emphatically exclaimed how exciting technology has become.
We are getting old.

Atleast Andrew is.

Anywho that's about the extent of my excitement these past few days. I didn't even have enough going on to blog about nothing until today...I've reached a new low.

Oh yeah-I also became obsessed with the Sims 2 for PS2 this week. Andrew's really excited about that.
