Just put the dork stamp on my forehead and get it over with

I know I've been slacking on this whole blogging thing, and I'm sorry. I'm bored as hell and you can bet I've been trolling your blog (if you've got one) but I can't seem to think of anything to write about on mine. I must reiterate that boring life = boring blogging.

So I'm going to share some of my dorkiness with you, because it made me oh-so-happy one dreary day in physics class.

I have recently discovered that sitting in one of the chairs in the back of the lecture hall (you know, the chairs that have an "arm-desk" attached?) is far FAR more desirable than sitting in the actual seats of the lecture hall. In fact, I don't know why I don't have to fight off hoards of students when I get to class each week. As it is, it seems that only I realize the benefits of these chairs.

Sure, they're not padded like the lecture hall seats, and they're in the back, but dear GOD is there more space back there. I mean, I don't need much leg room (ahem, 60 inches tall, ahem) but even I'm cramped in those lecture hall seats. And forget about putting my backpack anywhere other than where my feet SHOULD be. Ugh.

Sooooooo... this past Wednesday, I was sitting in the back of the class, and my attention started to wander as the professor answered a question about something I already understood. I looked over at the dry erase board behind me and saw this: and it made me ridiculously happy.

So happy that I took a cell phone picture to share with the boy.

Who promptly called me a dork.

But at least he understood why I was ridiculously happy about it. Which is good, because it means I can still date him.*

Now I want to know how many of you get it. So leave me a comment and let me know. Be honest!!

*Okay, I probably wouldn't have left him if he didn't get the significance of this picture. But if I ever use "YOU MOCK MY PAIN!" or "Let me explain....no, is too much. Let me sum up." in conversation and he doesn't understand it, well that's just unforgivable.

So sorry. It is the Usual Suspects. I don't want to give anything away for those who haven't seen it (ahem) but Kevin Spacey was in a Barbershop Quartet in Skokie Illinois.

At least you got some joy in the middle of your lecture. That's a bonus! And you didn't get caught texting in class!

one of my favorite movies, EVER! oh, and I also am a fan of the back of the lecture hall seats. Econ 210, every class I was up there working on the crossword puzzle. I learned what I needed...
