When Everything is Funny...

Have you ever gone without so much sleep that everything is so hilarious? The last 3 days I've had about 9 hours of sleep total (I had a paper due today and an exam). I'm so tired now that I can't turn my brain off and everything seems comical and every thought that I have I just blurt out aloud. Not a good situation. Yesterday afternoon, I laid down to get a little shut-eye and was basically narrating to Josh what I was doing or thinking..."I'm so tired right now...I'm thinking about chemical reactions...I wonder if there's any granola bars left?"...and so on. Then today, I'm walking in my building's halls laughing to myself about random things I was thinking about. Looking back now, I don't think there was anything really funny about it. I think I just need some sleep. I know I need some sleep when I'm beginning to fit in well with the other crazy chemists in my building. I'm stuck here at school though a little longer due to another exciting seminar I "get" to attend. Maybe I can sleep in there.

I got to go with April and Adam to Seaworld on Saturday. It was a blast - my favorite were the seals and sealions. Oh, and I got kissed by a Beluga whale!!! I'll have to add that picture later.

The Show!

We went last night to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dream Coat - It was awesome!!! I have a new favorite musical. The costumes and music were amazing.

Well, I've spent the last couple days in San Antonio with my pal April Stephens doing absolutely nothing! I love it! Tonight we're going to a broadway show - I can't wait. Hope everyone is having a FUN spring break!

Another Quiz...I'm Green...What are YOU?

Take this test at Tickle

Amanda, your true color is Green!

What's Your True Color?

Brought to you by Tickle

You're green, the color of growth and vigor. Good-hearted and giving, you have a knack for finding and bringing out the best in people. Green is the most down-to-earth color in the spectrum — reliable and trustworthy. People know they can count on you to be around in times of need, since your concern for people is genuine and sincere. You take pride in being a good friend. For you, success is measured in terms of personal achievement and growth, not by status or position. Rare as emeralds, greens are wonderful, natural people. It truly is your color!

Uh, I get the feeling these quizes are made to make you feel really good about yourself! So take a quiz and feel good about yourself!
