Full day  
Snoozed, woke up, got ready, Internet, left late without food, noted the fact that if I would just STOP HITTING THE FRAKKIN SNOOZE BUTTON I would be able to do all of those and get food and not be late - by "not be late" I mean "be properly early not just five minutes."

Got to plant, sat up front, almost fell asleep three times in lecture but didn't and paid attention, took notes. CJ gave me two pieces of chocolate that I eated! Practical was ironically on cocoa. We have a 2-3 side assessment to do, basically bullets, on some stuff with the plant. Shouldn't be anything terrible. We were walked around the greenhouse by the man who said "uhm" too much in his presentation (50 times since the time I started counting) and wasn't at all sure of himself. Danced around when I was bored and amused people. Wasn't as studious as I should have been - didn't go above and beyond and draw everything because it wasn't necessary. Hung around nervously.

At the end said bye to Pip with a hug and headed off with CJ and her friend Jon to get assessment. He was fun and liked Zoë Lewis music. I got really nervous. Got up there, found it right away, threw it on the table and couldn't look at it because I felt sick. Slipped it in my rucksack without looking, but had an ominous feeling. When CJ bet 10p that I would get above a 70 I bet against her - against my grade.

Walked home. Ate lunch. Went upstairs. Eventually took assessment out to Juliette and read it with her, ranted, cried (not panicked just sad). Got hugs from everyone. Back in my room, a bit of panicked crying but then calm. Emailed the professor. Got happy, danced around, was Kiwi.

Got email back eventually that said sure the professor would meet with me (11 a.m. Thursday) and he would email Duncan, the professor in charge of the class, about extending the deadline. I later got an email back that YES, it was extended to Monday as I suggested! For the whole class whee! I did goooood!

That was after tea, which was HORRIBLE and the "trifle" (as if that jiggly monster could be called trifle) ate my birthday/class ring from Boskone with Tammy! So I rescued it with my spoon, put it in my water, dug it out again, and cleaned it with a napkin. Stupid trifle. Stupid dropping my ring.

But anyway, I ran out of my room and hugged Matt. Decided to go out with them to Subway and get something cheap because I had some free time again and wanted to celebrate getting my first paper back and being good and emailing the professor and turning things around so quickly. So we walked together with my dancing all the way with Doom (my iPod). Got to Subway and ordered a veggie delite 6" which is 1.99, the cheapest thing on the menu, and 50p crisps. Which gave me enough change for washing again! And the food was HEAVENLY. We all just sort of sat in silence eating, completely pleased with Life, the Universe, and Everything.

When we walked back Sarah and I were together and listened to Charlie the Unicorn and danced around and pretended to ride unicorns through the candy mountain song. And then listened to and sang the Mysterious Ticking Noise song from Potter Puppet Pals. It was so fun.

Came back, updated quote blog, got some stuff done, showered, got chemistry notes done but didn't have it in me to finish the sheet, typed up my plant food one week diary thus far, and emailed KS1/Codename Cavinator because I was inspired. Turned out longer than I had hoped, but I think still Kiwish. We'll see what happens. I feel stronger regardless.

Posted a BoS post on Sheroes for the first time in a while. Am now really annoyed at another that supposedly "doesn't insult trans people" but totally does. Because yes, OBVIOUSLY they're just in it for attention ("but only the mediawhore ones!"), and It's a WOMAN THING to want children, and there's obviously NO DIFFERENCE between adopting and having babies with genes in the family (not that one is always preferable, just that different families have different desires!), and obviously it's OK to call people "it" or go directly against the pronoun wishes of people, and obviously it's not a Big Deal or anything, and obviously if you're biologically one sex and align with another gender and sex you're not a part of it as biosex people (duhhh, why would you even consider equality into the mix?) because obviously people with the right sexual parts for the gender are better or more that gender than those who don't.

So yeah. I wanted to growl. But it was someone else's BoS post, so I just tried to support a friend as best I could. But it still miffs me loads. But now it's bedtime! I'm late already! And microbes lab tomorrow in Exploiters! I'm so nervous! And Lora will be there!

What?!? KS1 got an email. So not fair. What are you then? If she's KS1, are you just KS. I was using subscripts. Now I'm thinking of Cavcreature as Thing 1 and me as Thing 2 and then you're the Cat in the Hat or the fish if you're feeling cranky. NOT FAIR! I PROTEST!!!
Kiwi Crocuscranky__crocus on November 19th, 2008 08:27 am (UTC)
KS1 got an email because I had suffered through chemistry in the evening. And then I went over my bedtime and it was bad. I guess I'm KS2? And you're KS3? Maybe? Dunno! Was just quickhanding it haha.

Thing 1 and Thing 2, giggles. Nawr. I think Cavinator would be Cat in the Hat (she rhymes better off the top of her head) and we would be the Things.

I don't protest! I'd love being a Thing.

Val totally didn't follow this comment. Grins.

I like the idea of joining you in dancing and hopping around and making lots of trouble. Yes, Cavinator rhymes better. She puns pretty well too. Things! Jumps around. But the fish is a cool character in that story, in my opinion.

Haha, my days at the Aggie were pretty eventful as well!

I sit in the front row of lectures. I would feel terrible if I fell asleep.

Well, to be fair, Manteli had also said in a recent post in IFIC that AI and IVF were a waste of resources, so it's interesting that that stops being the case when it's transpeople involved, I guess. Also, knowing Katie? She doesn't hate transpeople. She doesn't look down on them. It's this issue that bothers her, and honestly, the media attention especially pisses me off, too. This isn't a scientific breakthrough, it's a social gossip fest.

I don't know. I guess the other way I see it is BoS is BoS. You can't expect everyone to agree, but you can expect everyone to exhibit a minimal level of decorum no matter what the situation, you know?
Kiwi Crocuscranky__crocus on November 19th, 2008 08:25 am (UTC)
Yeah, I never know what goes on in them because I'm afraid of them and stay in my little lounge. And I don't really know Katie - I won't hold it against her or anything, and I don't expect she hates transpeople. I just read it and was like, "Wow, that's disrespectful" about using the wrong pronouns and all - which I get is opinion-oriented, but it's always really harsh. I was just really miffed / hurt by it all. I didn't follow the media attention - I just knew the general story.

I definitely don't expect everyone to agree in the BoS, haha - in general, when there is a group of Sheroes, I certainly don't expect general agreement (in most cases). I can also understand it causing Manteli a lot of pain, and stirring Beans' desire to speak, so I don't blame them for crossing the BoS line - it seems we all do it from time to time when we get passionate or pained. The BoS rules can be so frustrating to some people. I'm sure there were others sitting around biting their tongues.

It was just a downer for me to read this attitude I hadn't heard in a while. A lot of it sounded really disrespectful even if it wasn't intended. (Which, again, totally expected in the BoS, land of the "Dear you, fuck you, hate from me" type letters and complaints of all assortments.) Just stinks for me to see something like that. Definitely hit the wrong bone and made me angry/sad. Last night I was angry. Now I'm just a bit sad to remember.
