My computer was brutally and savagely murdered the other night by a virus. I thought it was only mildly ill, so I tried to clean it with my anti-virus (HA!) program. The next morning when I went to turn it on, nothing happened. My desktop was clear. So I took it to the doctor. They tried all they could, but my motherboard was dead. It's over. I just told them to stop all attempts to revive it. Anything else they could have done to help it would have just cost as much as a new computer.

So, let me show you what I'm getting next. It may not be this week, and it may not be this month, but this will be my next baby.

I'm so excited. My old computer isn't even cold yet, and I've already got the replacement in motion. I feel so heartless and cold. What kind of person am I?

Why do some people, when in the right-turn lane opposite the intersection from you, try to inch up to turn in front of you, the on-coming traffic, as soon as the light turns green, and then flip you off when you purposefully foil their plan to be an asshole?

So there I was sitting at a red light getting ready to speed off as soon as it turned green, like I normally do, when I saw Mr. Machismo inching up getting ready to cut in front of me. I got that evil smirk on my face, and thought, "Oh you think so, do you? Well I DON'T!" At that moment, the light turned green, and I punched it. As I passed him with an even bigger evil smirk on my face, he flipped me off. I laughed loudly. I hope he heard me. I so don't like rednecks in their trucks who think they're going to show up a white girl.

Every morning, I fight getting out of bed, but as a general rule, I don't fight it for longer than three snoozes...4 soundings of the alarm, and I make myself get up.

Yesterday, I had a chemistry test, and the day and night before, I was studying a lot and teaching it to my classmates. I had chemistry on the brain, y'all. So, yesterday morning when my alarm clock went off, I thought, "Fluorine." I hit the snooze button and went back to sleep. When it sounded a second time, I said, "Chlorine." Again, I hit the snooze button and fell back into sleep for 8 more minutes, possibly dreaming about chemistry boy #1 and him whispering sweet equilibrium equations in my ear, only to be awakened again by the alarm. "Bromine," was my thought before I hit the snooze one last time to dreamily contemplate the meaning of the lyric, "trusting my soul to the ice cream assassin". I still hadn't arrived at a conclusion when the alarm sounded, and I said, "Okay, that's iodine. It's time to get up."

While I was in the shower thinking only about the steps of shower-taking because that's all I'm capable of early in the morning, I was suddenly struck with a rogue thought. "Fluorine, chlorine, bromine, and iodine?! WTF?! C, you are such a nerd!" I guess some mornings I can't count like a normal person. I count in halides.
