Grade check

September 22, 2008 - 11:47 pm 1 Comment

First grade of my graduate student career: 97.

Can’t get too excited, because it was on a paper that counts for 5% of my final grade. Still though, not bad.

Woohoo, resume updating time again. It was a crazy summer, but now I’m setting into a new project that’s not at all ARG-like. I think I’m really going to enjoy it.

Seriously, WTF? There was a thumping in the chimney earlier, then we were swarmed by buzzards.

I thought the watermelon was safe. I thought wrong. Hub found the remains this afternoon. The half weighed almost 2 lbs., so it had to be something strong enough to lug around a 4 lb. fruit. Could have been deer, armadillos, squirrels – who knows? All I know is that all of the eggplant have been gnawed off the vine and smashed to bits around the yard (saw the squirrels carrying them up the trees), the few green tomatoes we had before we left for Florida were no longer there when we got back, and there’s no baby fruit left anywhere in the garden.

Between dogs, deer, and squirrels, we’re not destined to reap any of the fruit of our labors.

I called back because I had one more day before my year anniversary of getting this battery and 1.5 hours of battery life ain’t gonna cut it. They forwarded me to a product specialist who made an exception for me and is shipping a new battery as I type. Now that’s what I’m talking about.
