Totoro, anyone?
I don't know how old I was when I first watched this movie, but I still love it to pieces!
I can't tell you how much I wanted my hair to float up when I yelled when I was younger, or the need to ride the cat-bus and have a giant Totoro stuffie. (all these things are still true!)

Curry and Cupcakes.


Today after my classes I came home and made a potato curry, as pictures above there! It contains eight potatoes, a zucchini, an onion, and so many spices that my nose is still tingling a bit after cooking at..hours ago...

It cooked in the slowcooker while I went off to the WATCH ME MOVE exhibit on at the Glenbow, a portfolio of Animation over the last 150 years. We didn't get to spend as much time there as I would have liked, but it is utterly brilliant, and I can't wait to go back! Thank you year pass! (Christina and I got cupcakes and toothepaste that is apple flavoured on the way there..)
Jimmy, we are definitely going to be going to this and watching eeeverything. It's so neat!

That clothing picture isn't accurate for today, but I forgot to put it up yesterday. today I wore a shirt with birds on it. Put a bird on it!
Accurate for at the moment is...


To plan essays with me! :D

Sunday + Monday


Before you say anything, I know I took a mirror picture again! Soooorry, but it's the best way to get any good lighting in this place! The main room doesn't actually have a window or anything...

Anyways that it what I was wearing's getting a little chilly outside this time of the year! Also I really just like wearing hats and scarves all the time.
And you know what? It was a brilliant monday!!
I got to eat more of the fantastic curry chicken fried rice (picture is that in the making!) that I constructed on sunday, and I made enough to last me for the next few days. Or at least until mid week, depending on how hungry I get!

I spent three hours this evening looking though mesoamerican codices, and drawing pictures from them. This is my work! Then there was skyping with the mom, aaand now I'm doing this. I should probably stamp out some more paragraphs on one of the 400 things I have to do at some point soon...but in reality, I'm just going to watch a bit of American Dad, have more food because I'm starving today, and go to bed.

That is Dave, with a cat's head per his specific request.
It's a bit scary! I'm not sure if his head on the cat's body was scarier though...and no I don't have a picture of that. (it's apparently still around though!)

Thought I'd also share that fact that I just did 4 exams in less than 48 hours, am pretty sure I did awesomely on all of them, and am seriously considering going to Safeway to buy a box of double fudge magnum bars and eating them all at once...

I might do that tomorrow.

good god.

No picture this evening,
for I am a tired girl.

There were two midterms today,
one in Geoarchaeology (yay!)
and one in History (yay?!).

Tomorrow I have one at ten am,
and another at 11am.

Then I'm going home to sleep.
Or I'll buy coffee...

Probably I'll go buy a coffee,
and then get home and pass out,
totally forgetting about the coffee.

No studying is happening after my tests tomorrow.

Have a nice train ride, Jimmy!
(think up some cartoons?)

Sometimes things like this happen when I stayed up til 3am for saturday and sunday studying. Sometimes it just has to be the 20's, even just a little bit!
I've been sat at our kitchen table aaaall weekend long reading textbooks and making notes, and...staring at the wall, and skyping people, and now it's the last bit of ol' Thanksgiving weekend and I can't study.

Not even when I have 4 midterms a the end of this week and definitely want to.
I will not absorb anything!
I should maybe start a paper...but more likely is I'll go to bed in a few minutes :l sleeeeepy Robyn!

Today is Thursday


It's official.
My photoshop has utterly totalled itself. The darn program won't even open anymore, much less let my kind of do work and then refuse to save it... I'm really not sure what's worse!

On another note onesies are awesome, and a handmade plain onesie that your awesome friend made, paired with fleece striped socks that clash horribly, is all that more awesome!

On another, another's been raining for 12 hours now, and it's cold and NO ONE HAS FIXED MY WINDOW YET so I can't very well close it if the wind is blowing in and being horrid and such, now can I? Didn't think so!

Oct 1st!


If that first picture is still sideways...I'm assuming it will sort itself out ~

I'm sitting around studying at the moment, and though this would be a better use of my time...for a few minutes! I drew a train on my arm this stayed for a bit.

Also, apparently there was a chemical leak in my building this morning down in the basement (which explains the fire trucks this morning). It was contained and isn't a threat to anyone, but they've had to turn the heat off to prevent..something or other, and we've been asked to close our windows. I CAN'T close my window, however, since no one has come to fix I'll just be a bit on the cooler side for a bit, which is cool with me.

What I want to know that sort of chemical do they have enough of in the basement, that could cause all this?!
