I knew I'd be hella bad at updating.
Ok, what's happened in the last while. As almost everyone has heard from me, Guelph begins early acceptance of 30 of it's 100 students this month. So basically every morning, I pee myself while trying to open my email as fast as possible.
Yes, it happens on Saturdays and Sundays, too :(
In other news, I had a kick ass Valentine's day. Since going out on busy nights sucks, we agreed that I'd make dinner. And of anything, he picks spaghetti, go figure. My Valentine's day plans couldn't be set in motion until the day of, since I suffered through midterms Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. As an aside, I love molecular biology, and I'm sure I'll come back to that once I get a few marks back!
Anyway. So I made spaghetti and my awesome meatballs. And then I figured why the hell not, and made an appropriately festive cake.
I also managed to dig up a gigantic white tablecloth and a more appropriately sized red one (the shit I never knew we owned, honestly...) so the table was properly attired. Kyle had also given me a dozen red roses and I busted out my square plates, so it looked pretty sleek.
Since he was so excited about his gift, we did that before eating. In my typical inadequate fashion, I bought him the X men trilogy. And what did he get me, you ask? WELL.
First, he handmade a jewelery box, lined and everything. When the box was opened, there was a card printed in slideshow format, that was bound at the long end like in a book. Once all the cards were flipped through, there's a ring box in the bottom containing:
It's way better looking in real life, though it's currently being resized down to a mere 4 since I have freak hands.
So yes, it was lovely. And then, we got to watch the first 2 Xmen. Now I'm on reading week, waiting for Greg to get his ass in town and trying to figure out how to conjure a sled for tomorrow's sledding party. Wish me luck in my endeavor, otherwise I may have to resort to using Kyle's face! ;)
Oh yeah, as an addendum. I'm notorious for being addicted to pets, and today is no different. First, I'm very excited about Zeke, who is my 8 month old bearded dragon. Now that he's hitting sexual maturity he's finally developing his true colour, and it looks like he's going to be a lovely yellow with some orange. VERY cool. Also, he's almost big enough to start eating mice, which will be infinately easier on my budget than buying crickets (assume, a feeder pinkie is something like 70 cents and he can eat about 2-3 a week, while crickets are 12 cents a PIECE and I go through roughly 8 dozen a week if not more!). But, the new deal is that I've been contemplating what to put in his old, fabulous terrarium since he's recently upgraded to a bloody tank large enough to count as a piece of furniture. Today, I found my next tank inhabitant:
The giant day gecko, who really is as awesome as he looks. Not only is this bad boy diurnal, but he's also small (thank god), and eats predominantly fruit with some insects, having a markedly smaller appetite than my dragon. They're also arboreal and extremely active, making them a ton of fun to watch. Oh, and they stick to glass. Major bonus! The only disadvantage is that they can't be handled, but given that Zeke is perfectly happy to ride around on my shoulder like a parrot (he won't be too impressed when I get my lovebirds), I think I'm ok in the playing-with-reptiles department.
Anyway, now I'm really going. Night, all!
