Shotgun weddings

Caitlin and I were discussing shotgun weddings last night when this gem came out:

[14/04/2006 10:28:35 PM] sushimustwrite: Don't you need someone to officiate the wedding too?
[14/04/2006 10:29:18 PM] moonglade_swan: I don't care if mom wants redheaded grandbabies. And yes, they have one of those at shotgun weddings.
[14/04/2006 10:29:29 PM] sushimustwrite: Ooh....
[14/04/2006 10:29:38 PM] sushimustwrite: I'll have to see about this shotgun wedding thing.
[14/04/2006 10:29:42 PM] sushimustwrite: I don't want the husband.
[14/04/2006 10:29:49 PM] sushimustwrite: I just want the dress and the cake and the fun stuff.
[14/04/2006 10:30:15 PM] moonglade_swan: hmm..... but you kind of have to have the husband.
[14/04/2006 10:30:22 PM] sushimustwrite: Oh.
[14/04/2006 10:30:30 PM] moonglade_swan: The downside of weddings
[14/04/2006 10:30:50 PM] sushimustwrite: Why can't I just marry myself?
[14/04/2006 10:30:56 PM] sushimustwrite: I could love myself until death do we part.
[14/04/2006 10:31:07 PM] moonglade_swan: Wow
[14/04/2006 10:31:36 PM] moonglade_swan: That would be an interesting wedding to attend

Yes, I kept the time-stamp on there. I don't feel like backspacing like crazy. If you're wondering, I really did read about marrying oneself somewhere. I think it was in Quirkyalone. In all seriousness though, we women tend to give so much out that we forget to give to ourselves. It's not looking out for number one--it's taking care of oneself. After all, you have to be well-cared for before you can care for someone else.

Today was just like yesterday, minus the laundry and plus the actual work on the paper. I actually finished my opening paragraph today. I know that doesn't sound like much, but that and the conclusion are usually the hardest parts of a paper for me. Now I can dive into the paper and write like crazy until 6pm Monday. Okay, maybe not. I have 3 classes Monday, none of which I can skip. I don't want to skip linear or multivariable because they're math, and I ε> math. [I told Charlotte this at lunch today, by the way. She asked me about Dr. Koch since she has him next year for finite math, and I replied that I epsilon greater than him. She said, "You know you're a math major when..." I do, though. I'm planning to take his number theory class next spring, though, so I can have a bit of Koch in my life.] I can't skip French even if I wanted to because there's going to be a quiz on the presentations. Sigh.

I rediscovered another idiosyncrasy of mine tonight. I eat my cupcakes funny. Most people will just bite into them, but not me. First, I split the cupcake in half such that the frosting section and a bit of cake are the top half and more cake is the bottom half. Then I eat the bottom half by itself. Finally I eat the top half. Maybe this is why I'm such a slow eater. I must think on that one.

With that, I must shower and return to my paper.
