On March 20th at around 6:00 I sprained my knee. It’s still not fully healed, and sometimes when I try to do things that involve putting weight on it in funny ways (climbing trees, being involved in a human pyramid) it hurts like hell. It’s been 5.5 weeks. Don’t ever sprain your knee.

Why are so many insults gendered?
My suitemate has been in the shower for at least half an hour. She turns the water on full blast (and we have AMAZING water pressure). This is her second shower of the day. This is ridiculous. Update: 10 minutes later, the shower ended. 15 minutes after that, it starts AGAIN. Maybe I should give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she had a guest?
Tonight I climbed a tree and spoke in haiku with 5 friends, ignoring all the work I need to do.

Much better than Aristotle.
In a miraculous confluence of events, I had the perfect afternoon. I forgot that my philosophy class was canceled and ran into Billy and Ryan, friends whom I wish to see more of, on the way in and out of the Philosophy building. I then called Julian, who had been wanting to hang out after his class (and who was hanging out with Andrea), which I thought I couldn’t do because of my memory...

D.Mo to E.Mo: April Fool's
(Re. my Facebook relationship status-- "In a Relationship" with my best friend)
D.Mo: Yeah, I saw that.
E.Mo: You figured it out though, right?
D.Mo: You mean did I figure out it was a joke? Yeah. I stared at my computer screen for 5 minutes before deciding it couldn't be true. But why?
E.Mo: Because it's hilarious. Because it took you 5 minutes to convince yourself it was a joke.
D.Mo: But it's so wrong! You guys should stop right now.
E.Mo: I'm not stopping 'til midnight.
D.Mo: Why midnight?
E.Mo: Because then April Fool's Day is over.
D.Mo: Oh my god! It's April Fool's Day! People have been telling me outrageous lies all day and I've believed them!!
D.Mo to E.Mo: Pick-up line
D.Mo: That sounds like your problem, not mine.
E.Mo: Yeah, but you could be my solution.
D.Mo: That was a really good pick-up line.
E.Mo: Too bad I can never think of good lines when I'm with boys I'm actually interested in.
(I just wanted him to walk on my back, to crack it. In the middle of the library at 2.30 in the morning. My earnestness in delivering the line tickled him.)
But you know what we can do with all these stupid boys in our lives? Make them...– C.H.
