A Miserable, Rainy Friday

I think the title of this post about sums everything up.  Today, is grey, rainy, cold, and miserable, and as much as I love the rain, I do not want to be out in it.....not on a day like today.  Sadly, I had to though, seeing as we had a field trip for my Earth Science lab.  The lab itself was very interesting; we looked at all kinds of cool rock formations and such.  I personally think geology is kinda cool :)

But, the issue of course, was the rain.  Wandering around in the rain was not fun.  By the time I got back to campus, I was already soaked with a deep cold that goes right to the bones.  I'm already sick, and this certainly did not help.  I honestly wouldn't be surprised if I don't have much of a voice tomorrow!  But, I'm trying to take care of myself....I took off my wet pants, shoes, and socks, and changed into something a bit more comfortable.  It's at times like this that I wish my grandparents hadn't moved.  They used to have this big old house with the nicest fireplace.  I wish I could just curl up on the couch in front of the fire and read a book.  When I get my own house, I'm going to have to get one with a fireplace!

Right now, I'm just waiting for Matt to call me so that we can go and get dinner.  It's been nice getting to hang out with him more these past few days.  I feel like we go for really long periods of time without talking; it's sad :(

Been listening to Mika, which is a fun diversion from my present, sick, miserable state, haha.  If you've never listened to any of his music, you have to check him out!  I LOVE Mika :)

Also, I need some help from y'all, especially the guys.  I'm writing a screenplay for my screenwriting class, and I'm having trouble with the lead male's motivation.  Gentlemen, what qualities would a woman have to possess to make her worth waiting twenty years for (especially when you can have any woman you want)? What would make this woman so special?  That's the issue I'm having right now....I can't figure out why he would want to wait for her (because, honestly, she's a little bit bland).  Please help!  Thanks :)

And.....here's some Mika!  Enjoy :)


  1. Please don't get sick!! Chicken noodle soup!! Rest! Fluids!! Blankets! Chick-flicks! :)

  2. Get well Em :) As for the screen play, she needs lots and lots of money and I mean lots. Sorry to be so cynical :) perhaps he could be mentally off balanced? May I ask why he needs to wait twenty years?

  3. Thanks, Tom and Chess :)

    And Tom, the characters used to date, and she breaks up with him because of a huge mistake he makes early on in the film. They go on with their lives and eventually meet up ten or twenty years later, and he still is in love with her. But, like I said before, there needs to be a good reason why he would wait.

    Money won't work in the context of the film, since he's super rich already, and all the women chasing him are rich, too. But, thank you for the suggestion :)

  4. haha sorry Em that was more sarcasm than suggestion, I am British. Maybe "wait" is the wrong term? Is he really waiting or is he rediscovering why he fell in love with her? Imo it's all going to have to work around her personality, that she's more substantial than the other women that he has been familiar with. I can't stand hollow women and I don't mean shallow. Hollow is more in regards to having no input other than the reflection of popular culture around them. It's a bit like there isn't some inner eye trying to work things out from the other angle.

    Anyway that's my input, even if little made sense it did...

  5. he could think that he's not good enough for her. he's guilty about what he did. he might think that she loves someone else.

  6. so sorry to hear that the weather was that awful there...I may have been sitting on Nevin's porch sipping champagne, but the time difference really blurs my memory. Anyway, hope you're not sick anymore, and send up a little prayer so I don't get sick...too much to do and with the amount of sleep I've been getting, it almost seems bound to happen at some point. Of course, there's always the crash-right-after-I-get-home alternative...and I'll stop babbling now. This is your blog, not mine :P

    love from Normandy :)

    I want all the details of your Nevinian visit! Please email me something soon? Glad you're enjoying Normandy, and PLEASE try not to get sick! There is so much for you to experience; and while getting sick could never be enough to stop YOU, it would prolly slow you down, and that would be no fun!


Thanks for visiting! Please feel free to comment ;)
