an ordinary sunday

completely irrelevant picture of a cool bike, just because
Today was just like any other Sunday. I woke up early for church and replied to my parents' rhetorical question, "Why is it so hard for you to get out of bed in the mornings?" with such snark as, "Gee, I don't know, maybe it's because I'm tired or something."

It got real dark and rained for a while and I was severely disappointed that I had other things to do that prevented me from enjoying the rare rainy day properly. By properly, I mean curling up by the window with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and listening to the sound of the rain as I sip on hot tea and eat biscuits. Sadly, my life is not like a book, and even more sadly, I live in Texas, not England. As it was, I had to be content with listening to Slavonic Dance No. 1 as I tried to figure out the concentration of H3O+ in a certain equation. And I did get some biscuits, only we call them cookies and I call them 'slightly stale Girl Scout Cookies that are not even in my top three favorite kind but they have chocolate so who cares.'

I went and did more Planet Earth stuff and it actually went pretty quickly this time. Also, we were prepared for the poison ivy so that sample was not collected. Booyah. After that I had a soccer game and that was...normal.

More interesting posts coming your way. That's...that's not a promise, though.

  2. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1196941/The-violent-country-Europe-Britain-worse-South-Africa-U-S.html England has high crime rates. Just pointing that out to you (and Claudia/all of you guys that want to live in England). I'm going to go hide now.

    1. And we have the Daily Mail newspaper too. Possibly the most badly written, bigoted and unintelligent piece of journalism in the world today.
