Ech, I have never been more grateful for the mid-semester break than about... now. (Although as my geoscience classmates pointed out, it's not mid-semester, more like let's-see-how-long-we-can-go-before-no-
one-turns-up-to-classes week.) I had four major assignments due in this week, and I did them all, but it was a close call.
The downside is that it's turned my brain into cheese. I left my jacket at the bookshop for two hours today. I hope it enjoyed the break.
And I lost my scarf.
My beautiful Geelong scarf.
And I lost it on the day my team plays another team in the semi-finals.
As the topic says: this had better not be an omen.
But I really, really miss that scarf. I've had it since I was about ten. Granted, I didn't think about it for about five years (we did move to Brisbane for a while, not much call for it) but it's been there for me. I loved it when wool scarves made me itch. One of the tassles still has a plait in it when I got bored during a game. Mischief used to love the tassles. I wore it for most of winter in year 11 and 12, and fondly remember how the (new) principal told me off for wearing it. Pah. It was two thirds school colours.
And now it's gone.
I have a fairly good idea of where it is, and I'll try looking for it after the break, but I'm not optimistic. I hope it ends up being useful to someone, and possibly getting the Cats some more converts. At least it's getting into summer, so I wouldn't have needed it for much longer anyway.
Goodnight, sweet scarf. Mischief and I will remember you fondly.EDIT:
Apparently Geelong is winning! This makes the loss somewhat easier to bear.This post was brought to you by the committee for doing random stuff on friday nights, El division.
