Maybe this explains things.

I am nerdier than 65% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

Perhaps I'm too nerdy. Or not nerdy enough. I don't know. All I know is that Eve scored a 97, which makes her a "Nerd God[dess]".

Anyway, things are in this weird holding-pattern:

1. Either my thesis advisor got hit by a truck and can no longer communicate, or is purposefully not commenting on the two heavily-revised chapters of my thesis that I sent away two weeks ago and was promised "yes, don't worry, your thesis is my top priority." Mmm-hmm.

2. I didn't realize a love-life could go downwards from "completely nonexistent," but alas, I've found a way. I should really write this up for a research journal or something... but, oh yeah, apparently academic writing and I don't get along too well, as my thesis clusterfuck nicely proves.

3. My grandma is now in the hospital, and is going to be there for the next few days. She's going to be alright, so my mom tells me, but still... I dunno. Just another reminder that, in our lives, chances are we're going to have to attend quite a few funerals. (That's a happy thought, isn't it?)

4. I'm now officially the union rep at the school at which I teach. As I put it to a colleague today, "I am now open for bribery." In all seriousness, though, I hope things go pretty smoothly; as a staff we're pretty harmonious, with each other and with the school's administration. We don't have too many issues, thankfully.

So, in conclusion, I'm really damn tired, and I am strongly considering hitting the sack before eleven, which I probably haven't done since I was in high school (my experience with mono notwithstanding). Teaching is fun, but I physically hurt at the end of the day. Why is this?

I hope your grandma is doing alright, that really sucks.

wow. I really hope you got that Manganese question right.

Also, I think that owning a laptop computer should detract from nerdy-ness because was more nerdy, walking around "outside" with a laptop or always being within reach of a desktop?
