A Firm Believer in Having and Eating One's Cake

Comments (6)

My lovely friend, Haynes (more commonly known as "Sexy Beast"), has been gracious enough to lend me his laptop whilst we are sitting in his second class of the day. I doodled my way through Animal Behavior, but I'm not sure I would've made it through Genetics with just pen and paper.

Today is my last full day in Texas, and there's no way I'm ready to go home yet. I'm so much happier around my friends that I haven't even minded going to class or chapel. I haven't had to devote a single conversation to brochures or name tags or butterflies. Well, I take that back. Once I mentioned that my job at the church involves a lot of butterflies, my oh-so-smart friends taught me about the etymology of the word "butterfly," the migration patterns of butterflies, and exactly how much butter a butterfly could fly if a butterfly could fly butter.

In any case, it's been a lovely break from the rather lifeless existence I have going on back home. I have an application in my purse all filled out and ready to go in the vain hope that my college will accept my $20k+ and allow me to return next semester for classes. It would mean living on Pop-Tarts and selling my soul for laundry money, but I'm cool with that. It's worth it to be around such truly amazing people.

I hope they let you come back. We want you back!

I give. Stupid question: where are you? Vacation? Band camp? A yearly self-imposed retreat with 12 boys?

Etymology, eh? Did they teach you that they used to be called flutter-by's? (Or flutterbies or flutter-bies or flutterbys or...) I saw that on Wikipedia a few years ago. ;)

And a word to the wise: Rice cakes are cheaper than Pop-Tarts.

Don't insult having a lifeless existence. It gets me through Thursdays. Also very ouch on not telling Bens of trips to Texas.

Hey, why hate on the Pop Tart Diet? Pop Tarts are delicious.

It sounds like you had a great time- maybe I should visit Texas and check out these fabled Wal*Marts.

Thursday's Child - Keep your fingers crossed! And your toes!

TheQueen - I guess I should probably explain that eventually. Basically, I've been going to a college in Texas on and off for the past few years, so I took a vacation this past week and went to go visit my friends. They all happen to be boys because 1) the school's guy-to-girl ratio is wiggidy wack (seven guys to every one girl) and 2) I hang out almost exclusively with one dorm floor, which happens to be home to the coolest guys on the planet.

Chris Magnusson - Yup. My friend explained the whole "flutterby" thing and how "butterfly" probably just was a spoonerism that somehow caught on and became popular among the masses.

I hate rice cakes. Sorry. :(

Deus Ex Fimus - I announced my visit on Facebook and figured that would get the word out to a good chunk of my friends all at once. Sorry. :(

Tez - I love the Pop-Tart diet. Trust me. I just miss my Chicago pizza WAY TOO MUCH after about ten days of Pop-Tarts and cereal.

Whenever I go back to school in Tay-hoss, you should definitely come visit. I would totally give you a tour of one or more Wal*marts. There are at least three within twenty minutes of the college, so we could even have a Wal*mart marathon. Or a scavenger hunt. Or something.
