So this is awesome.

Need I say more?

LJ just ate my entry! Darn it!

So today is the last Friday of spring term, and I am covering a friend's shift in the computer lab. The place is deserted, as it is a sunny Friday afternoon and everyone with exams left to write is probably goofing off frolicking in the sun.

Colour me surprised when a lady pops in, looking for Professor McSo-and-so. The department office downstairs told her to come up here, so I head off with her in the direction of the offices.

All of a sudden she turns to me and asks urgently, "Are you pregnant?"

"Oh! Uh, no, I'm not pregnant..."

"You don't LOOK pregnant," she assures me, "But with that dress, I was wondering 'is she just starting to be pregnant?'"

I look down at my empire-waisted dress and wonder if it qualifies as maternity wear. I decide this lady is wacky.

"Well, no, no pregnancy here," I say.

"Alright. I was asking because there's some gasses down that hallway... I could smell something earlier."

Let's just say I kind of skipped manically back to the lab in delight at the sheer oddness.

... What a way to end the school year.

- the fact that somebody's finally opened the curtains in the computer lab where I work. Even though I'm not thrilled to see the snow outside, I do appreciate the view of the outdoors.

- my new Marmot jacket. So cosy!

- the fact that someone rewrote "Pride and Prejudice" to feature zombies. The excerpt I read was a bit too gruesome for my tastes (I have a vivid imagination and a weak stomach), but the concept is great.

- not having to write a thesis ever.

- this incredible, amazing, stupefying video:
