Music Thursday - Flight of the Conchords

"Hey Bowie, do you have one really funky sequined space suit? Or do you have several ch-changes?"

Love it.

Finals Update - 4

I finished my French final in half and hour. No more tests! I just need to write two more pages for my philosophy paper, edit my biblit paper and turn them all in. (Oh and finish packing of course.) Right now I'm taking a break to go to Café Presse with Eddy.

Last Day!

Today was my last day of classes for the year. I'm a little sad about that, but I'm excited for the summer and next year! Things are going pretty smoothly final-wise. My biblit paper is mostly finished (I just want to go through and edit it a little bit) as is the take-home test for that class (turned it in today). I took my French oral exam today and il a été fantastique! My French final is on Wednesday at noon, but I've been studying for that over the weekend and it shouldn't be hard. The last big thing I have to do is finish up my philosophy paper (5.5 pages) but I'll have all of tomorrow and most of Wednesday to get it done.

As per tradition, today was Senior Streak Day. I missed it last year, so Eddy and I made sure to go to the quad to watch this time. It was definitely entertaining.

Finals Update - 3

BibLit Paper: FINISHED! (10 2/3 pages. I think this is the longest lit paper I've ever written)

Only 5.5 pages of Philosophy to write, and that shouldn't be hard.

In other news, I went over to Eddy's apartment today and made apple fritters. Actually, Eddy made them, but I helped. They were my first deep frying experiment, and I think they went well!

Pasta alla Vodka (or White Wine)

Look at the deliciousness that I have just created!

It's basically Pioneer Woman's recipe, but I've substituted white wine for vodka (since I didn't have any and didn't have a legal means of acquiring any) and about a third of a shallot for the onion (since I'm an onion hater!) It's mostly regular pasta, but with a couple of handfuls of whole wheat to get to a pound.

This was pretty much the best thing I've eaten in a while. Eddy and Tyler both loved it as well. I want to try it with vodka sometime and see how it tastes, but I loved the floral wineyness of the sauce, it really went well with the tomato. (I think I lose all foodie cred using a word like "wineyness". Ah well.)

HAAWWT (channeling my inner dad here...)

Today I thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster for yogurt parfaits and Italian sodas. I don't know when I became a wimpy Seattle-ite, but it is way too hot for me today. Sadly Janet took her fan when she moved out, so my room is broiling right now.
