Today, I:

- Arrived at work (on ~3 hrs sleep) at 7:40 for an outreach only to discover there was no outreach and I didn't actually need to be there until 11:30. (Partly my fault; I should've double-checked the email I got.)
- Found out my laptop's hard drive is dead and they don't know how much data they can save. (And yes, we have an external hard drive backup, but it's developed this charming behavior where it will show you that it has files and folders in it, but when you try to access them, it says, "What files? I have no files.")
- Discovered a nail in my right rear tire, which they can't patch because the tires are too worn. So I need new tires.

Today, you are FIRED.

Winning at being a Grown Up: Today I got my car serviced (routine maintenance) and went to the doctor (sinus infection, bleah), both of which I'd been putting off for ages. Yay!

Failing at being a Grown Up: Trying to go into work on my day off and discovering when I got there that I didn't have my badge and keys. I still haven't found them. Boo. :(

I just finished making my 50th Pennyblossom. A couple weeks back, EW.com posted a Big Bang Theory gift guide, and they linked my Pennyblossoms! ("For: Someone who knows who Radiohead is.") That led to a very nice uptick in business, which has been pretty awesome. It would have been more awesome if my actual job hadn't suddenly gotten crazy busy at the same time, but whatever, I can sleep later.

Speaking of sleep, I have an 11-mile run at 6:45 am, so I should really go to bed. (I never thought I'd get to the point where 11 miles seemed blessedly short, but here I am. Last week was 19 miles. That one was tough, NGL.)

I AM SO LEGIT IN LOVE WITH COMMUNITY YOU GUYS, it's not even funny.

(What I have watched so far: the four episodes that are on Hulu. And a lot of clips. And some picspams.) Uuuuuugggh, why it gotta be at 8 pm on Thursdays?

(I worked 12 hours today and I am fried. Can you tell?)

ETA: Someone needs to go to D*C dressed as the Greendale Human Being. I would scream and run in the other direction, but someone should do it.

...the fact that Brad and John think the Opie and Anthony show is just the funniest thing ever, so in the afternoons in lab the radio is tuned to these two pathetic excuses for shock jocks. Today the morons were having a 'staple-gun contest' wherein they started with a full, folded newspaper over their legs, then shot a staple gun into the paper. Every round they took another sheet of paper away, so by the end they were down to 10 sheets of paper and were basically shooting staples straight into their legs. Their screams of pain as they tried to one-up each other were just....ew. And I *had* to finish what I was doing, so I couldn't leave the lab.

Anyway, I'm out now, thank heaven, and my office is quiet.

Found the specific link for Dunc's Vegas pics, it's: http://undermine.net/tracy/mirth/jadecon/

Even if you have no idea what a Jadecon is, or why on earth I should go, you should go look at the pics. Cause they're cool. And my Tarts and Jedi outfit kicks ass.

Also, I remembered that [livejournal.com profile] lemurtanis should be auditioning tonight, but I'm not so sure she'd let me hug her. Bonk said that if anyone I hug says "Bad touch!" then I have to let go. *heavy sigh*

It's quite disconcerting to stain a gel by nuking it for 30 seconds in a regular kitchen microwave on a lab bench, then go to the cafeteria and warm up some pizza for lunch in a microwave that looks essentially the same.

Yesterday evening we got our DSL hooked up, and for the first time in a month, I have internet access in the place where I'm living. Hurrah! So hopefully I will be updating my LJ much more frequently, assuming I have stuff to talk about. And even if I don't, I'll probably ramble on about nothing.

Anyway. Life since May 16th.

After seeing Episode II at midnight, we had our usual last-minute scramble to get Con stuff ready (my fault this time), slept for a couple hours, and took off for the airport. Vegas was fantastic, and it was a really great con. So wonderful to see everyone again, and the con was just so-- mellow. Everyone was relaxed and happy, no tension in the air, just a bunch of people coming together and having a good time. Dunc's got a bunch of great pics on her blog at http://www.undermine.net/tracy and Yav just posted some too, but I haven't got the link handy. The flight(s) home were a total nightmare-- well, not the flights themselves really, they were fine, but the stuff before and between. Long, nasty story, and I won't bore you with the gory details.

We came back to MIT, I packed, took my 7.27 final, packed some more, and then got on another plane to go home. We watched Sean graduate in record time-- the entire ceremony, for all 300+ grads, was only an hour. Saw Lindsay and William at the ceremony, also saw Rachel Brickman and Ben Morris, but from a distance. Lindsay and Rogue and I hung out on Saturday. Fun to catch up. :) Mom and Dad took Rogue and me to Ruth's Chris on Sunday, after Sean and Grandma & Grandpa had left. Mmmmmmm, sooooo gooooooooood....

It was nice to relax and do nothing in the week and a half I had before starting work. I took care of some minor stuff in the room (gluing drawer back together, laundry, etc), but mostly just crocheted and watched movies. Empty time is nice sometimes.

I started my summer job (internship at Enanta Pharmeceuticals) last Monday. It's been awesome so far; my project is really interesting and my boss is really nice. :) And my work computer is hooked up to the Internet (although it really hates MIT webmail). Only thing I really don't like is the commute on the bus-- the bus is fine, and the commute's not long, but ugh, lots of sketchy people on public transportation.

I'm being CRB rep for Assassins, and last night was the first night of auditions. It's really funny; I think I learned more about how to audition in that one night of watching 8 people than in almost 3 years of auditioning for shows myself. Second night of auditions tonight; Steeeeeeeve and [livejournal.com profile] thedan should be auditioning, so I have lots of auditionees to hug. :)

Since I'm not doing a show this summer, I'm planning to skate a lot-- BU has cheap ice time starting in July, and I have a coach for the summer. Yay! Maybe I can learn an axel. Maybe. But just being coached again, to have someone correcting my little mistakes that have only gotten worse in the three years since high school, will be wonderful. And Heather's really nice.

OK, I should actually be working, so there's enough of an update for now. I doubt anyone's read this far, anyway. ;-)
