Great Moments in Bachelorhood

One of the best parts about living alone is that you're the only one who has to deal with the results of your experiments. So, for example, if you're making popcorn and realise that you need to get rid of a small block of cheese (too small to put on, say, a sandwich), you can throw the cheese in with the margarine you're melting to put on the popcorn. What's the worst that could happen, hm?

I failed to anticipate differential melting points. My 11th grade chem teacher would be so ashamed of me. The butter and, apparently, the mozzarella cheese in the block of marble happily dissolved into a bubbling, seething mess that drizzled happily onto my popcorn. The cheddar, on the other hand, was left as this weird, flash-fried, crispy orange lattice structure. It all actually tasted pretty nice, it was just peculiar.

This has been a good weekend, all told. Relaxing and comfortable. I now have three to four weeks before the end of term, wherein I will have three papers to write and four final exams to prepare for. I can do this. This is plenty of time even for me. I'm not worried about school at all.

Now all I need to worry about is money, health, and remaining sane as opposed to a nervous wreck. One down, three to go. Because Oblivion continues to eat my soul, I'll leave you all with this bit of food for thought, from the Elder Scrolls universe:. The writer is a Daedra - the closest conventional analog would be a demon.

MAN'S MYSTERY

Man is mortal, and doomed to death and failure and loss.
This lies beyond our comprehension - why do you not despair?

If only I remembered where I (or, more accurately, my mother and her ex-boyfriend) put my cheese grater. Bah! Moving sucks. :)

Still, thanks for the advice!
