Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] goolover65 I will defeat the system and get to see The Nutcracker for $10. I so win! I did attempt to purchase a ticket earlier today, but found that I couldn't lie when directly asked if I was an undergrad. I mean, they probably had a list, anyways, so I would then be able to be charged under a violation of the honor code if I were to lie and say I was. But, I get to go, so yay! Thank you so much, [livejournal.com profile] goolover65.

Oh, and I'm singing a solo in the choir concert next week. My name is even in the program and spelt correctly. Take that, crazy lady! Now if only I could pronounce "dance" and "chance" in the non-British English way, I would be all set. Choir seems to get more fun every week.

I really didn't want to go to the internship today. But W and I went. We ended at an exciting point. One lady wrote a letter to the pastor (who apparently was anti-women being in top positions in the church) with two chapters from books they were using for the high school Sunday School class. One was for girls and one was for boys. We only had time to glance at it, but it seems pretty spicy. Things to look forward to for Thursday, I suppose.

We have to present both of our large papers written for archives during the next two weeks. Intelligent me, I selected an unpopular book for the book review, and a completely different topic for my research paper, so I will get no support, unlike the Women and Cookbooks book that over half the class reviewed. They get to present their findings together. And the people who did access or deassessioning, they get to do a group presentation of about 15 minutes. But no, I had to pick forgery and have to do a ten minute presentation by myself.

Just like I would pick progeria back in high school. Who talks about that for genetic research? Apparently, I did.

I missed most of the Felicity movie due to choir, but according to [livejournal.com profile] ladyshrew it seems to be as good as the Samantha movie was last year.

ETA: Should I be worried that I now have six different language versions of Presgurvic's Romeo et Juliette (and only two I really understand)? I think so.

Holy Hera!

How exactly is one supposed to write a one to two page paper when there are eight items to be discussed in it? Because I've barely covered anything, and I'm already at the two page mark. And she thought that you could do it all in one page?

My eyes apparently also have a strange gleam about them according to Jen. We think it is because I spent the last three hours reading about two hundred pages worth of computer information. I wonder how much of it I actually got? I know with one book I had no idea what I was reading. Inputs chasing outputs? Although I understand the whole rock/paper/scissor thing, however much the author was calling it scissor/paper/rock. How odd.

Jen and I went Cambridge side today because she wanted to donate some clothing to a thrift store near Harvard. We stopped by the yarn store there, and once again, the prices were outrageous, though nowhere near as bad as that other store. It is quite impossible getting any sort of affordable yarn in Boston. I give up.

We wandered into a used bookstore and on our way out were were accosted by the owner on his way in. Luckily, we managed to escape after only a little bit and happily found ourselves in a lovely children's bookstore. Where I bought a book with what remaining cash ($4) I had. Actually, I was quite fortunate, because the book I bought (Pamela Dean's Whim of the Dragon) was on the 1/2 price clearance. I guess it is now considered an older book that they need to clear off their shelves. Perhaps that is why I have had an impossible time finding it. At least they didn't rip the cover off of it! Oh, and there was also a copy of Sherwood Smith's Wren's War there that I would have bought (also 1/2 price), but I'm still under the belief that [livejournal.com profile] ladyshrew has that for me in some pile. Am I right? Cause if you don't have it, I might have to scrape some funds together and get it.

As you can see, I love books more than shower sandals.
