this is me

Fuck I'm tired.

When I came to work it was 0°F, with a wind chill of -10. It's currently -3°F with a wind chill of -15. My legs literally went numb from the cold. What the fuck, Kirksville. What the fuck.

I finished The Petty Demon by Fyodor Sologub. It was very... well... bizarre. People literally spat in each other's faces; a woman was having an affair with a 15 year old androgynous (and cross-dressing) boy; a man burned down a building because the nedotykomkas told him to; and everyone was bitter, spiteful, hateful, and all around unpleasant. On the other hand, once I got into it, I kind of enjoyed the book. I have to read the first 16 chapters of The French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles for JINS by Friday. That's only 125 pages. No big deal. I'm probably going to begin it after I finish typing this journal entry.

For whatever reason, Blackboard has been fucking up and I can't log in. This is a Very Bad Thing, because several classes have important documents posted there on a regular basis -- most notably, the homework for French Phon&Gram is only ever uploaded to Blackboard. I've been making the professor e-mail the homework for the last few assignments. This is rather annoying. Also annoying is the fact that my wireless doesn't work on campus. I think both problems are related, possibly due to my log-in name/password. Gotta call ITS again.

I've been cooking quite a bit lately. I made garlic breadsticks over the weekend, cinnamon rolls, miscellaneous concotions involving rice and ramen, and I bought some interesting items from Wal-Mart last night. I want to make cookies sometime this weekend, and some more cinnamon rolls, and maybe paprika chicken...
