January 24 – February 5, 2011

Sorry…this post is late.  I didn’t do a Rant.  I’m behind on everything, and the term’s marking hasn’t even started yet.  Also, I got one hour of sleep on Sunday night.  Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh.

  1. Just do what I do when I’m really tired: Start hallucinating and realize that very few things are actually more important than your ability to tell what, exactly, is real.

  2. The top of my television is probably the uncoolest in the known universe. Just the remote, nothing else.

    They need a more creative theme. A friend told me about a student party in Sweden, where the theme was “supermarket” and she dressed up as a tea-bag. Wonder what costume Barbara would choose for that. Probably pyjama and shopping bag.

    Perhaps Casey-Nico will appear as Rhett Butler …

  3. “Classic Hollywood” is, in fact, this year’s Massey Winter Ball theme. I can’t shake the feeling that there was a similar theme relatively recently, though I think it may have been “film through the ages” or something like that. Apparently, there’s going to be a casino downstairs, so that should be interesting (though again, something similar was done relatively recently).

  4. I can’t shake the feeling that there was a similar theme relatively recently

    Well, the Doctor did marry Marilyn Monroe and they did have that party…

  5. Oh, by the way, it turns out that bacon on a maple bar is actually pretty good, which surprised me. Just in case anyone was wondering.

  6. Wait… – is that Sara showing up at the Winter Ball? I would’ve thought she’d be hiding in her room.

  7. Yes, that’s Sara (she’s wearing her hair down for the ball). She does attend social events, though she rarely actually speaks while she’s there. As evidenced by her participation in last year’s Murder Game, she’s less shy and retiring than she sometimes seems.

  8. I don’t usually have that problem so badly, but I’ve got bad hearing. One of the ways my brain makes up for it is by being really good at picking human speech out of noise. I actually have a harder time hearing people when it’s quiet, because then they tend to be quiet too, and rather than just needing to sort, I just don’t get enough of anything to work with.

  9. I probably would’ve resorted to gesturing halfway through. Also, I am typically the person who cannot understand what’s being said, even when there’s only a moderate amount of noise…

    *wanders off to do a hearing test on the internet*

    Mmm, the test claims the aspect they test is ok for me (the test consisted of 24 sound bits, where 3 numbers were spoken to varying levels of noise. It’s in Dutch, so I didn’t link).
