5 Things

(Because Jessie asked.)

5 Items in My Fridge:
1. marionberry yogurt (It makes me homesick for Oregon, where marionberries are literally weeds.)
2. leftovers, most of which are due to be thrown away
3. nightcrawlers in a styrofoam box
4. lots of alcohol, including Hornsby's Crisp Apple Cider, a bottle of Rogue Shakespeare Stout, and half a shelf of expired (read: free) light beer.
5. a big bag of oranges, to share with the orioles

5 Items in My Closet:
1. duffel bags
2. a collection of beautiful and unique purses that I almost never use
3. a broken dehumidifier
4. my graduation gown, hood, and tassle
5. Nina

5 Items in My Purse:
1. Chap-Stick (Hi. My name is Amber, and I'm an addict.)
2. half a bag of M&M's
3. a hair brush
4. juniper breeze lotion
5. a bottle opener

5 Items in My Car:
1. a box of non-perishables to take to the food shelf
2. a blanket
3. about 100 pounds of books in one box (I'm pretty sure I'm not exaggerating.)
4. empty beverage containers
5. extra motor oil

Your Turn:
1. Emily
2. Tiffany
3. Jes
4. Loralee
5. Aspen

Amber, I just saw your comment about the paper for N. Geez-laweez...she musta been sick of grading papers by the time she got to us! I don't feel as bad now...because I know you put a lot of thought into your writing also.

Well, if nothing else, it makes me appreciate summer that much more.

I'm definitely happy it's summer. That last paper was really hard for me to write because my motivation was sapped, and I wasn't all that happy with it when I handed it in. So I wasn't surprised that it didn't get the grade I was hoping for. But I really wish she hadn't been so hard on the section from my thesis (In her end comments, she actually said, "The second half of this paper [excluding the part from my thesis] is the keeper.") But whatever. I keep telling myself that three other English professors said that section was good, and that it probably just didn't work as well out of its original context.
