Clover opted out of going to lecture with me today, which upset me a bit (unreasonably, I know) because it means she didn't really get to meet my good ecology friends and we didn't get to go through with our plan of lecture --> library (to print something out for her) --> town and then onto our adventure.

Instead Jojobird drove me home and I caught Clover just as she was getting ready to head to uni campus to explore. (I know I'm just being petty and territorial when my brain wibbles, "But it's my campus and I want to go around it with you!" I know she's an independent person. Brain, I acknowledge your feelings.)

I got some blissful Kiwi time in Global Cafe (my favourite hippie-fairtrade-intellectual cafe in town) while Clover shopped at the Oracle. Then the two of us hung around here together faffing about and relaxing. She did some organic chemistry, which I can only guess is the opposite of 'relaxing' (and, indeed, of 'faffing').

Omer (crush!girl from a few months back and drop-dead gorgeous art student) came in and caught me by surprise. I'll see her again later when we're all here for the International Women's Day Women's Comedy Night (yes yes yes! :D). I'm excited.

I need to stop being such a cranky-pants crocus. I think my social muscle has been over-extended during this hosting session, which is a bit odd, since I swear it's never been stressed this much before with such short spurts of hosting. Then, I suppose I've never felt this stressed by Life In General either, so that may explain it.

A) Sleepy Dreamtime Kiwi
B) Reality Wakeful Kiwi
C) Intense Thought Introvert Kiwi
D) Loving Smiley Extrovert Kiwi

Four random pictures taken throughout my time at the Global Cafe (the sun came out and I was so shocked because I had forgot about this sun thing; I played games with it and my webcam). I couldn't pick one for a profile picture as I thought they all captured different parts of me, so I brought them altogether and I thought I might as well post it here as well as Facebook. It makes me giggle.

Now it's time for food at Old Orleans! Time for some Southern American (Southern USA) Chicken and an ice cream cocktail. (; Then some funny women! I'm psyched!

I KNOW RIGHT?! Clover bought it for me for Christmas. She was pleased when she heard all the compliments I get. (And she witnessed a few when I was walking around with her and wearing it.)

I love it! It's so happy!

That's too bad about her not going to campus with you. Its SUCH A GREAT campus!! Neat old buildings and cool people. Her loss. She is probably tired. Going to London and then Paris alone probably wiped her out more than she expected.

I loved reading her post when she said something like, "Yeah, Paris was good but the best part of being here is hanging out with Kiwi and friends and going to local places like the Global Cafe." I think her comment proves that you are doing a wonderful job of hosting. Clovers knows you are stressed out. What a gift you have given her to have a place to stay with a loved friend in the UK!!

Love the pics! The four seasons of Kiwi. (We could probably come up with a few more seasons as well: New Years Eve Kiwi with BIG BOW was fun; After work at Stony Brook --> the exhausted from physical/emotional work Kiwi; The Kiwi preparing for the kids coloring and cutting beautiful memory pieces; The Kiwi when she has a breakthrough moment and realizes third year WILL be behind her soon; The Kiwi who laughed with Nick in the midst of a meeting even while holding back tears .... gee, this could go on an on like the colors of the rainbow). Ah, lastly, the Kiwi thinking, "Mom, you did NOT use those semicolons correctly!"

Re: P.S.
I do like all of those Kiwis too, although somehow I think they fit into some of the Four Seasons too. (: New Years --> extrovert smiley; exhausted from work --> sleepy or introvert; Kiwi preparing for work --> awake reality; third-year-WILL-end Kiwi --> dreamy introvert into smiley extrovert; laughing with Nick despite being upset --> smiley extrovert and dreaming introvert together.

Hahaha, I thought your semicolon use was fine. (: I'm loosey-goosey here on Livejournal Lands! I've loosened up. :D

She had been through a part of campus with me once so she did see the lake, which was nice.

I think she did have fun in the household. :D The night before she left she played Magic Cards with Roberts, I think.
