What now?

Sure, I should be following along with tonight's lecture, but after writing my midterms, I just don't have it in me. My intellectual stores have been emptied. So I bring you tonight's Idiot Blog.

First, let's review the week, shall we?

Dropped my kid's cell phone in the toilet. But wait, there's more. It started making some crazy, beepy, blippy R2D2 noises when I pulled it out. The intense light for the flash turned on, and wouldn't turn off. The phone started getting really hot, sooo of course I put it in the refrigerator. Well, what would you have done? So I dry it off as best as I can and put it on the charger. Later in the day, my husband calls my cell phone, and although I'm in a meeting, I answer the phone. What follows is the one sided conversation my poor co-worker heard:

No. Should I?
In the toilet.
Well no, but I did put it in the fridge.
Yes, it made weird noises, so I put it in the fridge.

Well that was a fun little phone call to explain afterwards. I've often said they keep me employed there only for the comic value I bring.

Allow me to amend my statement above that I'm not paying attention. I was sitting behind my little laptop, minding my own business, and I heard the professor admit that after all the drinking jokes he's made, he's actually given up alcohol. The classroom went dead quiet. At least until I, seeking to understand such a decision, asked, "For lent?" SO there, I am listening. Then I went back to my own little world, when I heard him proclaim "and that was Marius" so I picked my head up again, realized I have no clue who he's really talking about, but I'd really like to go home and watch Queen of the Damned even though they screwed it up because Marius didn't make Lestat, Magnus did, and everyone knows that.....

And aren't you glad you read this post?
