the only earth?

(no subject)

I'm officially skipping my seminar this afternoon. I'm blaming it on having a sore throat, but the decision is also based on the boring topic. Also, I didn't really mean to sign up for this class and I don't want to pay to get out of it.

So instead of hearing about twin pregnancy outcomes, I'm watching the X-files. That's sounds like a pretty even exchange to me.

Tonight I need to get some echinacea and vitamin C. Also I might have some sushi with Rachel and Elena or go to some mysterious quiz night in Wallingford.

Trivia night at Murphy's was so much harder that I'd ever have guessed. I was imagining one of those automated games with little computers that interact with a satellite for multiple choice questions. Instead, it was this woman sitting on a stage asking questions. We had to write the answers on a piece of paper and then she would grade them.

We did all right in the first round with a surprising 17 out of 30. Things went way down hill in the next round with like 11 out of 25. The questions were seriously difficult and I was actually surprised by our scores both times. Next time we need to recruit some more people to assist us in our cause. And get there earlier so that we can get a table and maybe some food.

In between rounds, I learned that I am not so good at darts. We weren't really playing an official game though, so it doesn't really count as full-out suckitude.
