Your Score: Wizard

18% Combativeness, 46% Sneakiness, 76% Intellect, 30% Spirituality

Brilliant! You are a Wizard!
Wizards are spells-casters who study powerful arcane magic. While Wizards tend to be pretty fragile, some of those spells can pack quite a punch. Unlike Clerics, Wizards aren?t as good at fixing people as they are at breaking them, so watch where you toss that fireball?
Your most distinctive trait is your intelligence. You're probably well learned and logical, if perhaps a bit fragile.

The colour crayon quiz, swiped from Claire!
You Are a Green Crayon

Your world is colored in harmonious, peaceful, natural colors.
While some may associate green with money, you are one of the least materialistic people around.
Comfort is important to you. You like to feel as relaxed as possible - and you try to make others feel at ease.
You're very happy with who you are, and it certainly shows!

Your color wheel opposite is red. Every time you feel grounded, a red person does their best to shake you.

Quiz swiped from Claire
You scored as Wizard, A few unintelligible words and a fleeting gesture carry more power than a Battle-Axe, when they are the words and gestures of a wizard. These simple acts make magic easy, but they only hint at the time a wizard must spend pouring over her spell book preparing each spell for casting, and the years before spent in apprenticeship to learn the arts of magic.

Snow... Sleep... Sweet!
School was a series of emails. But I didn't realise this when I woke. There was a power outage in the morning. How I knew? Alarm clock was not working.

But first time in 30 years, all classes cancelled for the day. I found out soon enough that the pine trees liable to chuck branches.

All the Professors were filled with glee. It was marvellous. And I got my English teacher's old copy of Burger's Daughter which is really cool though I have one ebook of it, and he also gave me free books. It's been awesome.

It goes:

Good morning students, Please be aware that branches are falling throughout campus. Pine trees are especially vulnerable to heavy snow. For your safety as you are walking, try to keep to open areas and avoiding walking under trees laden with snow. Also, there are power lines down along Longfellow Street. A reminder not to go anywhere near these lines, even if they appear to be dead.

The following buildings on the south campus loop do not have power:





Hubbard (we are adding temporary emergency generator)

Moulton Union – Use Thorne Dining instead.



Burton Little


Coles Tower


Thorne (is running on generator)



East West





Outdoor Leadership Center

Not on campus grid, but may be without power:

College St

South St

morning: 8:30 am am sat in class, glad to be out of the snow where I was breathing flurries

after: returned to compy and got an email from Ephe... very cool.

11:30 am - religion. I might be in religion for the wrong reason. I like listening to her norwegian accent. She's talking about talking theology seriously, through historical context, how we view other's opinion etc, and all I was hearing (and smiling) about was "If everybody throws themselves to the lions in the Roman Circus, the world will be dispopulated" or "If you're a purr (instead of poor!) you don't have as many choices."

Must do more readings, and see if Jas is on to wish her well.

I do be thinking Facebook spammed my inbox. It loves the attention, hahah. :D

What Are YOUR Wings Made of?(Gorgeus Pics)

Silk - Your wings are made of SILK. High maintenance is a word that sums you up. Youre a person that is hard to care for and quite expensive tastes. And when push comes to shove, you shove and step on their back. Your vengeance is strangely high and your attack method isn't physical but more financially or reputation-ally (that a word?) damaging. You to also be a very greedy person if not in relationships than in material gain. Youre quite protective when it comes to pointing out what's yours. Youre blind to the light and pain of the world for you've shut yourself from it. You are most compatible with... HATRED.

1. Love nuances in the emails I get to death.

School-wise I got to basically dissect a lobster we iced and hook up its heart testing dosages of hormones. Cool, huh? After I get back I will have to do a human consent form for blindfolding 15 people and taking the ECG's of about 30 people, though it has been intimated to me that I could probably increase the controls to 20-ish.

Religion was fabulous. We're done with Ruzbihan Baqli and will be starting the women Martyrs when we resume class. I'll do some readings on that. Maybe.

Now - break. What's awesome is the spring break. Right now I'm done with my classes for the next two weeks, which I have off. As it is the last break before the summer vacation, I plan on enjoying myself (I think I'll read the Dune series, but hush-hush). Cannot wait to get home and see folks I've been missing.

Sam taught me how to play Stones last night. It's called Wei qi in chinese, and Dad actually admitted to knowing it. Hmm, why did I never bother to learn? All the rules are simple, but on the board it's counter-intuitive, and I have to be more economic with my stones and read more about shapes.

We'll see if I can find a computer program that lets me play against it for practice. :D

As for DM, the CoL suffered about 25 posts after the 25th that went missing. I didn't have the structure saved though; but this is a warning to start, and I think we all learn that lesson well enough. It's fun though. Just not to be discouraged and all. Lost 2 posts in Saline's training but meh - still Lyssa's turn. Hahah.

I felt terrible about my Mentee though. I should have been more responsible and archived everything for Ino, but it was spontaneous effortless posting that Sam was talking about, and it works. Nevertheless I might stick some here now and then since DM isn't loss-proof, just in case.

Grey's Anatomy to-night. Re-run?

of crayfish and waving appendages
it's ten minutes before work and what am I going to do? RANT

My lab yesterday was _awesome_ cause the three of us got to inject hormones epinephrine the same as adrelanin (sp) into crayfish and draw its blood to look at how the blood glucose is affected! took all 3 of us to subdue some of the blighters I feel for the first two eyeless ones we tortured when we just poked into it with our syringes. Got this system going where one person holds the back and the tail still, another grab the claws, and the third administer the injections. Next week we do seratonin.

Right well, gotta leave for work. :D
