Chat Room

So, Ally, Kipp and I were chatting on IM today, during class, in a chat room.  It was hilarious.  Here are some excerpts.   Obviously, it was a lot funnier in class, but still, funny. 

allyescott5: hey – is John  a big

allyescott5: he always looks hungover

 CKP10: I don’t know John  really

SupesK: No.  He’s from California.  He is
also operating on West Coast time.  It’s like
3:00 a.m. for him.

allyescott5: he’s been here for 3 years

CKP10: ha

allyescott5: you’d think the jet lag would wear

SupesK: He has a very sensitive biological

While discussing our visiting professor and trying very hard not to laugh and bring attention to ourselves:

SupesK: And he’s from Sandwich . . . or
Cape Cod if he is trying to impress a girl.

CKP10: what does that mean?

allyescott5: I think its funny that his hometown
is called Sandwich

CKP10: that is hilarious

allyescott5: I am from Grilled Cheese, GA

SupesK: I would wear Sandwich, Mass.
t-shirts everyday if that was where I was
from.  With a picture of Reuben or
something on it.

SupesK: And a slogan like . . .  "Sandwich,
Mass.  It’s tasty!"

CKP10: I’m from Hoagie, N.C.

allyescott5: ahahhhahahahaa

CKP10: stop

CKP10: y’all are killing me

CKP10: I can’t breathe

allyescott5 has left the room.

CKP10: where did she go

SupesK: Her and I were about to lose it
back here.

SupesK: I’m literally chewing on a napkin
right now.

CKP10: she and I

CKP10: ?

allyescott5 has entered the room.

allyescott5: yeahI am looking at hurricane
victim footage to try not to laugh anymore


And discussing why some of our textbooks never make it out of the locker:

SupesK: There’s a book in here?

CKP10: I mean, I don’t have one

CKP10: but I think alex does

CKP10: and christian and rakesh are
sharing one

allyescott5: hahhahahahhha

SupesK: I think it is in my locker room. 
Right now I have my copyright book.

allyescott5: I have a book for this class that
I’ve never opened

 allyescott5: it lives in my locker with my crim
pro book

 CKP10: it is shy

CKP10: and doesn’t want to get a sunburn or breathe second hand smoke

CKP10: scared of cancer

CKP10: knows what happens if you get
cancer better than most law books

SupesK: Crim Pro.  Definitely never
opened that book last year.

allyescott5: that and its suffering from a totally
irrational fear of the police state

CKP10: well that is Crim Pro’s fear

CKP10: Health book is afraid of cancer

 allyescott5: yeah, those two hanging out is a
recipe for antisocial behavior

CKP10: no kidding

CKP10: no wonder they are so boring

allyescott5: and crazy

allyescott5: let’s never forget crazy

 CKP10: sitting in the dark, discussing all
your fears, is bad for you

 allyescott5: yeah, especially if you are doing it
with a bottle of vodka and pictures from
your childhood

 CKP10: stop it

allyescott5: I’ve never done that by the way

allyescott5: I just know someone who did

SupesK: Yeah, it’s usually not Vodka.

If I contrast today, with yesterday and Tuesday, today has been terribly unsuccessful.  On Tuesday I went to six hours of class, ran 3 miles, went to the grocery store, cooked dinner, unloaded and reloaded my dishwasher, did two loads of laundry, and watched the television shows I wanted to watch.  Yesterday was mildly less productive, but I was at school from 8:30-6:30, and so I didn’t have time to run, but I did change my sheets on my bed and another load of laundry. 

But let’s talk about the unproductive things I’ve done since 7 pm last night.

#1.  I locked myself out of my house.  While taking the trash out.  Now, I know what you are thinking, that takes a special kind of stupid.  Yes, I recognize this fact.  But, I was talking on the phone, and I wasn’t paying attention, and what do you know, I’m locked out. 

Getting back into my apartment was a bit of a trick, because Ali and Chris have a key, and Cristina has a key, but Cristina was in the ATL, and Chris was in Chattanooga, and Ali was at their house without a car.  My lifesaver in all of this was Katie Jackson, who was sweet enough to come pick me up and take me to Ali’s house and bring me home.  I mean, honestly, Katie has had to drive me around a lot lately, she is a saint. 

One of the worst noises in the world is the click of your house door closing behind you a split second after you realize that the door is locked. 

#2.  I left my pocketbook in class this morning.  While leaving class, I was chatting with Lauren and I said, you know, I feel like I’m leaving something, but I don’t think I am!  And we laughed about how we carry around so much stuff that when we don’t have our arms full we feel like we are forgetting something.  But, turns out, I was actually leaving something.  Something fairly important. 

Once I realized it, the next class had started, and I knew it was a first year class, and when I opened the door, I heard a woman’s voice.  It was in a room where there is a hallway to get to the room, kind of like a movie theater.  I didn’t have any female teachers first year, and the only 1L female teacher I know is very strict and would not appreciate me interrupting her class.  Most of the teachers I know wouldn’t have minded, which is why I would have risked it if it had been a male voice, but since it wasn’t, I didn’t think it was safe.  I even made Christy stick her head in the door and listen to see if she thought it was the scary teacher, but we couldn’t be sure, so I didn’t risk it. 

Instead, Christy bought me lunch and I had to interrupt the next class, because we didn’t make it back in time for the break. 

Of course, all of this is on top of the lost ATM card of a few weeks ago.  I’m telling you, I need a keeper.  Someone needs to look out for me.  Follow me around and pick stuff up that I drop. 

But, the whole point of this post was to tell you that I haven’t done anything productive today, but I have had lots of human interaction with some humans that I like a lot, and I think that makes today more productive than the other two days. 

Actually, I think you need both kinds of day, and I hope that I can keep a balance of the two successful days from now on, and not ever see a day as a waste.
