MMMM, Tasty!

I made dinner was de-lish. Here let me share...

5-6 tomatoes-cubed
2lbs fresh basil- finely chopped
2 small cloves of garlic- finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 box bowtie pasta

Cook pasta and set aside, covered so it will stay warm. Heat olive oil in a frying pan. Place tomatoes and garlic in pan, cooking until tomatoes are warmed and cooked through. Add in basil and allow to cook for 5 mintues, stirring often. Remove from heat and pour directly over pasta. Cover with 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese and serve.

MMMMM delicious!

Oh and as a side might want to wear gloves. I can't get the garlic smell off my hands. I feel like that Eclipse gum commercial where the guy is in a giant onion suit....exccept I'm in a giant clove suit, stinking up the room. Bah....pass the gum.

Death Count Update

Plant: Alive (still hanging on by a thread...without water too, I might add.)

Fungus: Dead (shriveled up and died...might pluck it out and fry it in a lovely garlic, cream sauce.)

Fish: Alive (and kickin'! Still attacking his reflection. Maybe I should change his's been a few days, er...ahem weeks.)

My brain: Jury still out. (Orgo exam week ago last friday...bombed it. Genetics test last Wednesday...rocked it. Microbiology exam tomorrow....iffy. I think I may have contracted a prion, which, by definition is an animal virus that causes spongiform encephalopathies. Yup, good ol' sponge brain.....That one better be on the exam.)

Back to the books. *sigh*

This is my plant....looks sickly, I know. It really doesn't get enough sun where it is, but I don't have a place closer to the window to move it. Oh, and it probably doesn't help that I forget to water it. So, sitting at my desk tonight, gazing at my sickly, dying plant, WHAT'S THIS?

Yup, look closer folks.....

It's fungus. Somehow, a 'shroom has sprouted right smack dab in the front of my plant dish. Don't ask me where it came from....that dirt is as dry as the desert. It's kinda ugly, but I'm thinking it may be the only thing I can keep alive....maybe I will just rip out the plants after they finally bite the dust and grow a fungus bowl. That would be lovely, don'tcha think?

Oh, and speaking of keeping things alive.....fishy number still alive. Shocking, I know....resiliant little bugger.

Another One Bites The Dust

One of my new fish died....and no soap was involved this time.

I think the smaller fish beat him to death...I found the little one poking the floating dead one around the tank and swimming around like he was the boss.

Hmm...maybe I'm not meant to own a fish. Gerbil, perhaps?

Our Beautiful Living Room....

.....cuz I forgot to post the pics earlier. :D

Comfiest couch.....evah...and we will also be getting a recliner in hunter green from kaitlyn's family and it will go at an angle next to the end table closest to the front of this picture (near the front door)

View from the front door.....

Our free BIG screen TV....wooo! Gotta love free stuff!

And So It Has Begun....

My first week of classes has come and gone...the school year has officially started. I think it is going to be a great semester. I love my professors, and my schedule is excellent. My organic class already is sooooooooooooo much better than last year. The prof does a really great job of explaining and helping us to understand. My genetics class is going to be a little harder than I expected, but the prof is my mentor, so at least I can get extra help if I need it. My microbiology class seems like it is going to be a blast...the prof is hilarious and loves what he teaches. Last but not least, my ISYS class is a total waste of time, but it will be an easy "A"...I'll take it.

I started my job on thursday as a stockroom assistant for the chemistry labs. I love love love it! It is so much fun, and my boss is super nice. I wash glassware, organize the stockroom and hand out items students need for experiments. It's only three hours a week, but my boss is trying to get me more hours. :)

Owen came to visit me on Saturday...I missed him...quite a bit actually. Something with him is different...and in a good way. It always seemed that before, he had a wall up. I always felt that he was holding part of himself back, but now, that seems to have completely changed. I think he was waiting to see how things would go when school be honest, I was too. I think being apart is good for us; I miss him a lot, but it allows us to get all our school stuff done without too much distraction. We'll see how it goes, but so far, so good. :)

I bought a new fish to replace my other one...two actually- two minature black goldfish. I still feel guilty though. :/

Mmmk...that's all the news for now. I tried really hard to get all my homework done on Friday, but I didn't exactly succeed....I probably should get on that. ;)
