My morning started off bright and early in this chair with this computer. I got up early to Skype with Alex before he went to bed and for some reason couldn’t fall back asleep. So rather than lay there bored in bed, I got ready for the day, grabbed some coffee and went in early.
My dear beloved readers,
I have surrendered to the constant dull, achy feeling on both sides of my nugget. It feels like I somehow managed to get a pair of vice grips stuck to my brain.
Oh, so dramatic. 😉
I am so terribly sorry for this inconvenience. Or, maybe you don’t really care and you’re only reading my blog to be nice?…how sweet of you. [Looks over at the small electrical fire emanating from the sarcasm detector…] Truest me, I don’t like it either.
I think it may have something to do with this bed/concrete slab I have been sleeping on for the past week with the lamest excuse for a pillow I’ve ever seen. And the annoying cigarette smoke drifting into my room from outside…ew.
This morning I got quite a bit done, however. I modified my presentation so it is ready for EADS in Germany later this week. I even got started on installing OpenFOAM, a software that I’ve been trying and failing to get my hands on here, on my laptop – but I’m having problems with getting Ubuntu to install, so it came to a screeching halt. I’ll work on it more tomorrow.
I have to say, one of my favorite things about mornings here at UOS is the way I am greeted.
“Hello Emily! (‘ello Emeh-lee) Are you quite well?”
Oh, yes. I’m quite lovely, thank you! Ahh, I’m going to miss that. I leave my window open in my room so I can hear the bits and pieces of conversation of those walking by. I finally heard the line I’ve been dying to hear in real life since I first heard it in a Harry Potter movie.
“You bloody fool!” –> Yow bluhey fooh!
Seriously, I heard it just now. Awesome.
Anyway, since I’m in a bit of a funk with this cranium-ache, I’m going to keep the post to a minimum today and get some rest, read my book and maybe, if my eyeballs will allow for it, watch a movie. Your day may be just getting started back home – but my day officially ends now at 4:43 pm.
