So, on Tuesday night we had a special tour. 3 of us volunteered for it (Me, Sam & Dana). It was pretty fun.
But most importantly…
….I have a new best friend.
When we went into the Chemistry and Physics building, I attempted to tell our tour about how we have a team that makes parts for the Particle Accelerator in Switzerland. I said something along the lines of “…I wish I knew more about it…”
“Oooh! Ohhh! I know!”
I looked over and the guy that was working at the planetarium that night was literally jumping up and down waving his arms around. His name is Ian. We’re best friends. He just doesn’t know it quiitteeee yet.
He described it as this: “I work on that thing! It’s the biggest piece of machinery in the world! It’s like watching cars run right into each other! That’s what we do! With protons!”
And yes…he said all of that with exclamation marks at the ends. He was really exciting. Brittney is basically ready to hire him as our Honorary Enthusiast.
And just in case you were wondering…I love my job.
Alexz is right. The snow day was epic. I’ve never seen that much snow in my entire life…except for when I was in Alaska…but that doesn’t count. A friend of mine said that she finally learned to “run in the snow”. Is it supposed to be hard? Don’t you just pick up your feet and run normally…with snow under your feet? Yes. That’s how it happens. I tried it.
So, now that The Office is making people think that it’s coming to an end…I’ve moved on to bigger and better things. Flight of the Conchords. Ohhh, yes. It’s Business Time. Flight of the Conchords consists of two guys from New Zealand. They are funny. Not the usual “they are funny.” But as in, they ARE funny. After the 3.5 day weekend we had, I needed a little bit of “funny”. Sitting in your room is not all it’s cracked up to be. You get sooo bored sooo easily. That’s where the TV comes in. Beautiful things can happen. Especially if your friend lets your borrow Season 1 of Flight of the Conchords. If you’ve never seen them…go to YouTube. Right now. Go.
Our new tour kicked off this week! Yay! I give the 2 p.m. on Wednesdays and the 1 p.m. on Thursdays, and I have yet to give the new tour. Today, we have a special tour (a bunch of high schoolers!) and yesterday…no one showed up for my tour. Bummerrrr. So for me, the new tour kicks off NEXT week. I love special tours! They’re so much fun! Especially when it’s a big group. They always have questions and fun things to say.
Zack is proud of me because 2 days ago I ordered some Burberry London perfume. Apparently that’s a milestone for my life. And I have “many, many Zack points” now. Yippee? I suppose I should feel like my life has been blessed or something by his approval. Yay me?
I’m sooo ready to go to London for my study abroad. Only 696 more days!
