So, this is probably the worst week I have had in a long time. I've managed to (so far): have a spectacularly emotional break down in the middle of the cafeteria; forget half my uniform for two days running; break my calculator half an hour before a conversions test in Breads; nearly get hit by the bus for the third day in a row while trying to flag it down; unwittingly offend half the people that I talk to on a regular basis; get stuck with the slowest goddamn girl in Breads kitchen, who proceeded to slowly knock half my ingredients off the table one by one and then try to steal my brioche couronne even though my name was CLEARLY right there.

There is more! I could go on!

Blah. At least I have a Julie to look forward to tomorrow, and a weekend of picnics and snuggles in my near future. God knows if I don't get some quality snuggles in the next few days I'll probably end up eating a pound of chocolate and terrifying the neighbors with primal scream therapy.

Anyway, here's that meme Darsy tagged me for a few days ago:

1). List your favorite female characters.
2). Explain why you like them or what makes them particularly awesome.
3). Post a picture and your favorite quote.
4). Tag five people to do the same.

Only four, but they're good! )

I can't manage anymore right now because I have class in a couple minutes and don't anticipate having the time later on (OH GOD PROJECTS WHY), but Teyla would totally be on there with extra hearts, and so would Miss Price from Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

There are about seven gnats in my room right now. They are increasingly making me want to tear my hair out.

Speaking of! My new chef for Breads Kitchen looks like Jewel Staite. I swear to god I walked into lab and nearly had a heart attack because OH MY GOD. They even have the same nose and mouth, the apple-round cheeks and long neck, and she's really thin and all legs and. Guys, you have no idea how WEIRD it is to be reprimanded by Jewel Staite for wearing a hair band around your wrist (which will inevitably lead to me putting my hand in a mixer, the mixer paddle getting caught on my hair tie and RIPPING MY ARM OFF - yes, she really did say this to me). Oh, oh, and that's the other thing: she's MEAN! She said we can't hum or whistle or sing or make jokes or do anything of the sort during class time, and if she sees or hears us being silly, we'll be docked points on our Professionalism grade.


I don't know how I'm going to survive 28 days of a sour, fun-smooshing Jewel Staite look-alike. It's like I'm in a TIME WARP. Chocolate tastes bad, grass is purple, seagulls shit diamonds, and Jewel Staite hates happiness.

Today was our first day of knife skills and I still have all my fingers. Not hacking off a limb: pretty much the highlight of my day. Which, when I think about it, is really just sad.

*flops discontentedly*

I could use a hug or twenty.

Now that I have time to actually sort of breathe: the first week of school was a success! And by success I mean I haven't sliced my fingers off yet. I still look pretty ridiculous in my uniform and I keep getting stared at on the bus, but that's not all that new, really, and actually having kids turn around in their seats or trip over their own feet trying to look at "the funny costumes, mommy, look!" is fairly amusing.

But, I don't know! Nothing really too exciting to report, since we haven't been allowed to do much more than make chopping motions yet. Oh! Although now I have a really vivid idea of how Rodney McKay would teach a Culinary Foundations class, since I swear one of the chefs secretly is him, going around and yelling at people to correct their stance or RISK LOSING THEIR LIMBS, HAVE YOU NEVER HELD A KNIFE BEFORE IN YOUR LIFE. I imagine John Sheppard would be his most insolent student and Rodney would daily tear his hair out over John's incorrectly tied neckerchief and scruffy cheeks and daredevil knife skills.

Strike a pose.

Other things of interest: 1) I get a [personal profile] kashmir1 today and hopefully she will be willing to cuddle me a little because my god it has been a long week; 2) I'm building myself a little garden in the backyard and it will hopefully grow things! which may or may not be green! I'm kind of excited, since I've never done a proper ground garden before; 3) I have no fannish shows to watch anymore! Supernatural is over, SGA is gone, Merlin hasn't started up yet, and Glee is just way too much contact embarrassment in one hour to watch more than once: what are you all watching?; 4) I have [personal profile] pennyplainknits' awesome merlin big bang and you don't, nyah, nyah.
