It is finished.

Sad bastard music hoooooooooooooooooooo


Oh man, so two people have come in looking for my supervisor already today (the pastor + student, a student who needs postponement on her program).

Except Friday was my supervisor's last day.

But here at Podunk University, announcing the departure of staff "isn't really a [Podunk] thing..."

So it's up to me/whomever is around office (yeah, definitely didn't get up until 8:40, whoops!) to tell whomever comes seeking Awesome Supervisor that she is no longer here.
When's she coming back? Uh, never. She is no longer here.
Who's in charge? Bahahahaha! Techinically, Dr. Interim, but in reality, kind of me/kind of no one since I am now the only full-time "staff" member in the "office" and the only who might have an inkling of what is going on.

Inkling is the key word here because I don't know shit about the programs beyond what I find on the Podunk U website.

Someday, this will be HI-LARIOUS and a FANTASTIC LEARNING EXPERIENCE and one of those things i can talk about in interviews when I am asked about a challenge I overcame.
Until then, I will be in the corner alternating between batshit and sobbing.

Veggie Quesadillas!

Ever since Kate and I had veggie quesadillas on Mackinac Island last year, I've wanted to make them for myself. Kate and I made some a month or two ago, and they were pretty good. I had all the ingredients and I've been craving something deliciously healthy and flavorful for a while (sorry Amy's Country Cheddar Veggie Bowl, you just don't quite hit the spot).


Oh so deliciousCollapse )


And on a definitely more upbeat note...

I have a third (and almost a fourth) knitting project started. The knitting group at Olivet is making 2 surprise baby blankets for two impending babies (on is a girl, one is a surprise!). This is in addition to the skull scarf and ridiculous birthday afghan.

And now my sewing machine is up and running and I'm making progress on Kate and Caitlyn's wedding presents. :D

Also, for the first time in about a year and a half, I've dyed my hair again. I felt like a change, but I didn't feel like cutting it.

The Worst Thing about Gay Marriage is the insipid asshats who think it will bring about the Apocalypse.Collapse )

Can gay men and women be as generous as we straight men are? Will you consider us as men who love, just as you do, and not merely as homophobes or Baptists? Every day thousands of ordinary heterosexual men surrender the dream of gratifying our immediate erotic desires. Instead, heroically, resignedly, we march up the aisle with our new brides, starting out upon what that cad poet Shelley called the longest journey, attired in the chains of the kinship system--a system from which you have been spared. Imitate our self-surrender. If gay men and women could see the price that humanity--particularly the women and children among us--will pay, simply in order that a gay person can say of someone she already loves with perfect competence, "Hey, meet the missus!"--no doubt they will think again. If not, we're about to see how well humanity will do without something as basic to our existence as gravity.
