Sittin' By The Dock of the...Printer?

Here I am, sitting in the computer lab of the one building on campus that I know very well, waiting for someone who works here to actually show up and start working here. The printer needs reloading, and the paper tray is locked (!), so I'm stuck here until some TA reloads it for me. Otherwise, I have no class notes, and no midterm study guide. That, and I already paid for the printing, so I want my documents. With nothing to do but wait, I figured that now would be a good time to catch up on some blogging. Luckily, I have a whole hour until my next class.

"How's life, Cara?" some of you may ask. Others may phrase it differently. "Where have you been?" "Did you forget about us?" "What is the air speed velocity of a coconut-laden swallow?" To you, I will answer: life is pretty good, I've been buried under textbooks and lesson plans, I did not forget about you, and it depends on whether the swallow is African or European. But you probably could have guessed all of those.

Honestly, life is good. I just don't have much time for blogging. That, and my paternal unit reads this occassionally, so I'm a bit reluctant to post some of the more amusing episodes of my life.

Ah, the TA finally arrived. Actually, he walked in, roamed around the room, ignored the blinking red light on the printer, roamed some more, and then went into his office. At which point I drew his attention to the blinking red light. This means that I can now go get my documents and start studying.

So much for my update. If you really want to know how I'm doing, I suggest emailing or calling. For my friends in the Holy Land, particularly those who have called in the past few weeks, I'll call as soon as I buy myself a decent phone card. For my friends in the States...well...I guess I'm just lame like that.
