I was just sitting on a couch in one of my campuses many cafeterias, watching Jim and Pam's wedding on Megavideo and minding my own business, when this guy in a leather jacket came and plopped himself down on the couch beside me.
I just ignored him right away, like any girl with headphones in her ears would do, but then he leaned over and put his face right up next to mine and said "HI IT'S NICE TO MEET YOU, WHAT'S YOUR NAME?" He extended his grubby hand right in front of my nose.
I gave him a pretty standard annoyed looked, shook his hand, said "Kristina", and turned back to my computer screen. Does he not understand how important this wedding is?? Instead of returning to his side of the couch, he lingered over my shoulder, taking in a few moments of the Office.
"WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING?" he slurred at me.
I didn't answer, mostly because I decided to be an ice queen but also because he was clearly drunk and I really, really didn't want to be making pleasantries with this wasted leather jacketed greasy haired boy. It was noon when this happened. NOON.
"SO WHAT CLASSES ARE YOU TAKING?" he tried again.
Luckily for me, the credits were starting to roll at this point, so I took the liberty of packing up my laptop to leave without answering.
"Hey!" he shouted. I turned around, but he wasn't shouting at me. He was shouting at his friend, who was asleep on a plastic chair. "Hey!" he yelled again, kicking the friend repeatedly. Kicking him hard! The friend didn't even stir. I left.
So that was my morning. College. Sigh.
Now I am in the library, killing time before my Consumerism class far, far away from the guy who I'd bet is probably still kicking the friend who was probably even more wasted than the first guy was.
Since I last updated, I have watched a lot of TV, nearly finished my Halloween costume, and fell in love (again) with both Rosi and Hayley, because they're amazing people who I only wish could be in my life more frequently than they are. I contemplated flying to Texas with Liz to see Muse (we once said we'd go as far as Las Vegas to see them because they're NEVER IN SEATTLE. And Texas is their last show in the US before a long string of shows in Europe, then Australia, and then freaking Japan. It's not fair).
However, we are responsible people, and also poor, so we wont be seeing our favorite band in the Lone Star state. Unfortunately.
Today I decided to sign up for another class, even though we're already 10 days into the quarter. I met this girl in my CHID class that runs a focus group on Disney every Thursday for two hours, and while it cuts into my "lie around in bed doing nothing" time on Thursday mornings, I would much rather sit in a circle and discuss the effects of Disney on society than refresh facebook and eat junk food in bed, so there you go. Also I'll get two more credits, bringing me up to a more acceptable 14 this quarter over the 12 I was already enrolled in. She told me that on the last day, we're going to go see the Princess and the Frog in lieu of having class. That's awesome.
I am getting very excited for a number of things. Halloween (and the party Justin is having at our house next weekend), Matt's show here the weekend after, Nanowrimo starting on the 1st, and leaving for Wrockstock on the 5th. I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am for Wrockstock. My cabinmates (aside from Eia and Liz) are mostly all people I have never met, but we've been exchanging emails for the past week or so and I think I love them all. Not to mention EVERYONE ELSE I am going to be seeing there.
Oh, and for the record.. even though my Jim+Pam Wedding experience was tainted by a stupid drunk guy, I don't want to belittle how it made me feel. I was tearing up and smiling and sniffling like my two best friends got married. It was beautiful. God I love well-written romance.
good on paper
