I’d completely forgotten that it was Halloween (despite even marking it down in my planner and all) until, walking up stairs the way to Business Chinese this morning, I passed someone wearing a Dick Cheney mask. I was surprised for maybe a millisecond before I remembered why.
I think either my classes were low in kids with Halloween spirit, or maybe I just wasn’t looking hard enough, but I didn’t see very many people wearing costumes today.
During dinner, I saw a few good ones, like Link from Zelda and this guy dressed as Waldo (from those “Where’s Waldo?” books)…and as he walked by, someone yelled, “There you are!” Hahaha good timing.
A bit earlier tonight, biological weapon roommate (now finally on the upswing) enters our room. I’m sitting drowsily at my desk, from where I’d had my head down and probably was lightly dozing before he came in.
Roommate (talking about the Microecon class we’re both in): I think if I get keep getting more extra iClicker points, I can pull my grade up to a 90-something.
Me: I don’t know, I’m not sure if we can get enough extra points that way to make so much of a difference.
Roommate: Oh, well I’ll email the professor and tell him the questions are too easy and that we need more.
Me: What are you talking about? He wouldn’t give us more questions, he’d make them harder. The class would kill you.
Roommate 2 (my current roommate, from his computer): I’d kill you. [He’s taking micro, but he’s not in our class] What are you trying to do?!
Roommate: I need to make him ask more questions.
Me: No, that’s not what you need. You need to do better on the tests.
And, just saying what I’d said normally, not meaning for anything to happen, but that caused Roommate 3, sitting in living room studying for orgo (organic chem), to start cracking up, setting off Roommate 2, and all of us just started laughing. Woke me up a bit.
Roommate: Okay, well, that too.
Always has something interesting to say, that one. I haven’t quoted the half of it. –”
