Okay, for being self-motivated self-starters, my group has been sluggish in every regard for this project. It's due in 2 weeks and we haven't even surveyed anyone... let alone drank ourselves silly doing some site "testing." ;) We'll pull it together. Each of us has access to people that we can survey and if necessary, I can pull out the punches and mail the survey to 2,000 people I have access to. Though the questions are so specific and confusing.. which is NOT the goal. Perhaps we'll get bad data, or perhaps we'll answer every question we need. Then again, it's just a class and only 10% of our grade.
I had an amazing weekend. It's liberating and relaxing to spend time with the people we feel most comfortable around. Unfortunately, I had an exam first thing on Saturday morning, so my Friday night was spent studying and watching Dane Cook's Tourgasm. I waited until all the episodes were available and watched them back to back. He's brilliant, and being the popular culture-addict that I am, instantly attached myself to his comedy. Back in February, Remi gave me his 2-CD collection and it's only gotten better since then. He has a lot of the same mannerisms that Remi has. Too bad Remi isn't returning my phone calls. Hmmm...
Saturday afternoon, I met up with Deb and Jen to have dinner and gamble all afternoon and evening. Lunch, horse races, slot machines, dinner, more gambling.. winning, winning, losing.. then winning big. With over $1,200 ahead at the end of the night, it felt magical. They had this competition thing that everyone would win something. They won t-shirts, which I promptly confiscated, and I actually won more cash. My luck was great. I even got to see a movie that evening and spent the better part of the following 12 waking hours cleaning and prepping for the upcoming weekend. My friend Sheila is in town, and she's bringing her beau. And my sister is in town that weekend looking for a job and apartment. It'll be packed, with lots to do, lots to see and lots of late nights. Can't wait.
Plus, in the coming weeks the following events occur:
- My birthday (Aug 4) and all that fun
- Camping in the Adirondacks & hiking & pictures & canoing! And bears?
- Week long vacation & the end of classes & travel & photo projects
- More camping in Pennsylvania with a ton of friends
- CindyA is coming up from Georgia to visit
I have some pictures coming too. My patio has plants on it that I maintain.. and I planted 5 plants that like to grapple and grow up on things. Well, the fire escape is covered and I think the people on the top floor are going to start complaining. Ha.
And I'm thoroughly jamming out to Daddy Yankee's Rompe and Chelo's Cha Cha. When did I go Latin?
