Tick. Tick. Tick.

So, it looks like my mother is actually heading out on Friday. Not for good and all yet, just for three weeks or so to tend to some things she needs to. Like making sure that my sister doesn't sneak back into the city just to make her a widow all over again. Since she's not moving yet, I can't move anyone in. So I get the place to myself for most of October, and enough free groceries to last me for most of that time.

Of course I plan to take advantage of this. :) Though any potential party will have to see about scheduling issues and all that jazz. Suggestions are always welcome.

I was a bit premature about counting my tuition as not a worry. The loan was approved, (after two weeks of sitting in my _last_ submission, mind), but now they want a signed parental confirmation. Luckily, I have one. The tuition deadline, however, is on Friday, so I'll be assessed a late payment charge of...about 1.5%, so about $40, when I finally get this in. I could go badger the University administration and see if I can get it waived, but really, I think the time would be more productively used doing my Calc assignment. I'm sure anyone who's dealt at any level with the trolls in the Admin building will agree with me.

As a note before bed, I really think that my penchant for random acts of chivalry is going to get me seriously hurt someday. Let's hope that stupid teenager I tripped with my cane to keep him from badgering some girl at the bus station doesn't have any large siblings who like to play with guns.

-D.

Oi! I'm an admin building Troll now, don't forget! :-)

I fear that's my new race according to my RPG understanding of postgraduatism and careers....

U Administration scares me, 'nuff said.... at least it looks like everything will work out, not too much worse for wear.

Yeah, but you don't have enough Admin Troll levels to start feeding off the misery and inconvenience of your undergrads. I give you about a year. :)

Oh I would have loved to see that. Loved to see that. Hooray for chivalry, and creative ways to keep stupid teenagers in line.

You're totally going to get hurt one day.

Remember, protect your head. If you're unconscious, you can't enjoy the praise from the damsel you have rescued. (Or her grand-daughter, which may be more likely)

Good Job. :)
