Fuck April, man. November's the goddamned cruelest month, fo'sheezy.  
How long have you been awake? : We'll round up by fifteen minutes or so and call it 22 hours.
How long until you have to wake up again? : About...four hours. Four and half.
Problems with this scenario: I lack coffee filters.
That's your problem with four and a half hours of sleep?: It's the first one that jumps to mind, yeah. I've got cigarettes, though, so I should be fine. Hopefully.
Classes missed today: One.
Why?: Oh, you know. No real reason. Just fell asleep for a little while...RIGHT BEFORE CLASS. *facepalm*
You think the prof's on to you?: Oh, you know. Could be, as he WALKED RIGHT UP TO ME AND ASKED WHY I WASN'T IN CLASS TODAY!
Your response?: "I fell down."
You realized this was lame, right?: As I was saying it, my friend, as I was saying it. But I kept a straight face, and I stood by it as an answer, and I looked so resolute that he let it lie. Or maybe he just didn't care. Either way, it worked out fine for me.
Irony of the day: After using this excuse, I then promptly FELL DOWN.
Amount of reading you have to do before your class tomorrow: About three hundred pages.
Anything you need to write before class, too?: You bet your sweet ass.
What time is this class?: Oh, you know. ELEVEN.
Identify the fridge stench: Seriously, nothing truly mundane could smell that utterly rank, so I think that what's happened is that the Norse god Loki crawled into the freezer and died, but first cursed us with a perpetual reek.
Have steps been taken about this: No mere mortal can combat this smell. We need divine aid.
Did you just sign up for another challenge?: ...you know. Maybe.
You totally did, didn't you?: OmigodSHUTTUP! (yes)
You get that this is going to drive you crazy, right?: Maybe this time will be different, really. I mean, honest. It will be. I swear. *is already wincing in anticipation of deadline freakout*
Current Mood: busybusy
Current Music: Fu la sorte dell'armi-Aida-Perlea, Milanov, Bjorling, Barbieri, Warren, Christoff-Verdi Aida

a double layer of kleenex or toilet paper makes a workable coffee filter. The tricky part is making it bowl-shaped. Paper towels work too if they're not the super-thick kind.


Best of luck, dear.

*hugs back*

The toilet paper thing, sadly, did not work out as hoped. *kicks sodden ex-filter-substitute* But, you know, it's cool. I'll just someday have to buy more filters. Until then I'll shake my fist at the coffee machine in protest.

Oh honey


I'll bring you coffee filters the next time I see you, ok?

*wimpers and crawls into your lap* You're basically the best thing ever.

Use toilet paper.

You think I jest, but I don't.

You jest? Surely never.

Also -- my kung fu was not up to the toilet paper trick. Or maybe the toilet paper wasn't up to it. Either way, it totally broke and was awful. But the kitchen now smells more like coffee than reek, so that's something positive that came out of *that*.
