Other small things

The quarter is halfway done. Or it would be if I had gotten more reading done this weekend.

It's funny that some friends and family think I will have the whole summer off (and to travel, no less, not work). I am going home for a week but other than that I need to earn my bread by studying grass all summer. I felt bad telling Elliot that I probably would not be able to go to NYC to see his new apartment. I strongly dislike big cities, so the only draw for me is the people I know, but still, the people are pretty cool. Well, wait, who else do I know in NYC besides Flarecarrot, who will be leaving? Probably someone.

I wants a man. A man who will move back to New England with me in four years. But just looking at a dating website homepage gets me really nervous. Maybe I'll do that this summer, when I don't have to balance it with class, just work and the miserable heat. I'm content being single too. Dan says he feels incomplete if he hasn't dated anyone in a couple months, and asked me if I felt the same way, and I said no.

The Corpse Flower

It finally opened today. When I went you could smell it if you leaned way in.

Mmm, Amorphophallus titanum, which means "giant formless penis."

They had t-shirts and I was tempted to buy one but did not.

Being surrounded by plants made me happy.

Edit: The more I look at it, the more the spadix looks like hands in prayer. Crap, I guess I should have gone to the Crusade's event on Friday.
