Fantastic Friday!

It is Friday, right? I'm so off on my days. Apparently it's June too. Sheesh. It was April last time I checked.

Fantastic Thing-that-happened-in-the-past-week #1) Finished spring quarter classes! Can I get a "woot-woot"? But here's the truly fantastic part: I finished spring quarter classes WITH ONLY ONE FINAL. And it wasn't during finals week. Which means I have an entire week to feel bad about not using said week to write. Or I could actually write. Skip all those bad feelings. Yeah. I could.

Thing #2) Ammonia that has been sitting in a backroom for God-knows-how-long isn't as potent as it was originally. ie: The four pages of warning that came with the box of ammonia at my work were null and void. Though I did have fun reading the many, many ways ammonia can harm people, the environment, and basically everything that at one time had some kind of feeling and/or soul. How did I find out it was no longer potent? I dripped some on my leg and flipped out until I realized it wasn't searing a hole through my thigh like the warnings said it would. So, the fantastic thing was that I DIDN'T burn a hole through my leg. *whew*

That's actually all I did this week. Wow. This week was decidedly anti-fantastic. Not bad, just -- eh. Eh weeks are good. Balance out all the rest.

Hey, not burning a hole in your leg is FANTASTIC! Don't discount that at all.

And write something. I've decided it's been way too long since I read something of yours.

It has been a long time, hasn't it? Sigh. My silly Muse is still being oh so fickle with me. But I shall try my hardest to get her to work with me this week!

Congrats on not burning a hole through your leg! That would have SUCKED.

Kate said...

Well done on not burning a hole in your leg :D

I'm sure taking a trip to the hospital wouldn't have ended up on your "fantastic" list.

Reminds me of the latter part of my elementary school days I think it was. A buddy of mine dared some of us to sniff ammonia and I guess someone dared him back, to go first. ha ha ha He did. He did not have to go to the ER, but he was instantly in tears and had the clearest sinuses in the state. When he was finally himself again, he told us he barely sniffed the stuff.

Needless to say, he never made that mistake again and the rest of us learned a valuable lesson from him. Ammonia is a mean devil. Glad you did not breath deeply or we might not have you here today. Take care.

Sounds like a productive week. I remember being scared to death of ammonia when I was younger. My dad told me once that ammonia mixed with any other cleaning chemical would basically explode in a fiery explosion of terror and doom. So yeah, a little terrified. But now that I hear it didn't burn a hole through your leg I think my dad may have been exaggerating. Hmm, I'll have to ponder on that. This new evidence could shake the foundation of all my beliefs.
