From the list of Things That Are Annoying: when you have a brilliant story idea, everything planned out perfectly in your head, and then you sit down at your desk, open a Word document (or, in my case, OpenOffice Writer because I'm weird like that) on your laptop, and your mind just goes blank. Then you end up staring at the wall for thirty minutes until you realize you really can't remember anything and decide to clean the apartment instead.

Anyways. My favorite word of the day: arachibutyrophobia. Yes, that's a word. For the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth.

Also, is there a funnier sound in the world than the sound of a person walking in flip-flops?

Dude, doing the one-year program is HARD. I am already sleep-deprived after just the first week. Getting up at 5:30 every morning? Not so much my thing. Also, the commuting is a bitch. And their way of practicing conference interpreting is to sit you in a chair and bombard you with grammatically complex sentences with about 300,000 subordinate clauses for 90 minutes.

And I'm loving every minute of it. :P

So now I have the whole weekend to read through that (growing) pile of things that I am supposed to know by yesterday if possible. Plus, I have a tutoring job on Sunday. I need coffeeeee!!!

Work is amusing in its very own way. I want Monday off, they give me Friday off. But I'll take it. There's not actually anything to do for me there right now anyway. Have mostly been bored all day until they finally sent me home at 3 pm. Now I have an early weekend. Which is awesome, because it gives me time to work on my psycholinguistics paper. I should be doing that right now, but I'm sort of stuck.

Also, I have the Cold From Hell. I can't stop sneezing and I'm wearing woollen socks even though it's almost 30 degrees Celsius outside. It's summer. I shouldn't have a cold. It's just not right.

I should go to the library, but I think I'm going to put that off until tomorrow. I should also clean the apartment before [ profile] emily_sheppard arrives on Saturday. That too will be put off until tomorrow.

I think I'm going to try writing that paper now. I still have a history paper to write that I haven't even started on. But it doesn't have to be done until the middle of October, so there's still time. Yes.

I HAVE BOOKED A FLIGHT TO LONDON! I'm going to the LFCC. *happy* This is gonna be FUN. :D I am going to see Torri and meet lots of awesome f-listers! :D

What else happened today. Um. I think I finally figured out a way to get rid of annoying phone company people who call to sell me new flat rates.

Phone Company Guy: I'm calling about the offer for that new phone flat. Am I speaking to [-insert my name here-]?
Me: Ooh, no. Sorry. She's not here.
Phone Company Guy: When will she be back?
Me: I dunno. Next year?
Phone Company Guy: Um, excuse me?
Me: She's moved to Australia a few weeks ago.

Roomie: Why do you even pick up the phone when you see it's them?
Me: Because it's FUN.

And already I have run out of random things to say. Or is anyone interested in a quick summary of the psycholinguistics paper I'm working on? No? Thought so. *grins*

I'm off to watch something.
