pies of the chicken sort

September 12, 2010 - 3:17 pm 10 Comments

it’s chilly out today, complete with rain and wetness! it’s reason for celebration because i am so ready for autumnal weather. though i’m just about to leave to go scavenge for some food, so by the time i get back, i’ll probably be complaining about how cold and wet i am and how this weather sucks, but… that hasn’t happened yet!

the other day, my friends and i made a chicken pot pie because i told them that i’m awesome at chicken pot pie creation, and it looked like good pie weather – kind of brisk and cloudy outside, like the presence of a warm pie and its scent would make the day more satisfying. only just about right after we began preparations, the sun came out, and it got really hot outside, and i had to turn on the air conditioning because the oven was making things uncomfortably warm.


and during the pie extravaganza, a fire alarm sounded right when one of my pots was slightly burning (a little char on string beans and carrots really brings out the flavor, you know), so i had to turn off all of the burners and oven and dally on outside… i think it was just a drill, and there were police officers in the area that came up to anyone to ask “are you from this building? did everyone from your apartment get out safely? ok, cool,” and then walked away. um? isn’t it your job to go in and check who may or may not be burning inside and/or dying from smoke inhalation?


my brother says my presentation needs work, but slices of pie are so 1800 grandmas. chicken and vegetable mixture with crumbled pieces of crust is the pie of today, my friends. welcome to the new age.

lists are for the awesome (and those who may have forgotten how to construct paragraphs)

home life

  1. i moved into my apartment on monday night.
  2. i forgot my pillow.
  3. which a number of my friends and roommates also forgot!
  4. but i also forgot my comforter.
  5. which so far no one else has forgotten.
  6. i also forgot a toothbrush.
  7. but i did remember to bring like 593 different bags.
  8. so i know what counts.

school life

  1. my first class of the semester was a 3-hour morning lab for physics.
  2. i had great difficulty adding integers in my head, but that’s what partners are for. adding integers.
  3. i then had organic chemistry after.
  4. there was even more organic chemistry this morning, and i was able to slowly recall what an electron is.
  5. i major in pharmacy, by the way, and i like to tell myself that science can’t really be that important for my profession.
  6. are you worried?
  7. you shouldn’t, because really, what does science have to do with drugs in the human body?
  8. (nothing.)


  1. i’m very sleepy.
  2. i still have three more classes for the day.
  3. and i’ve made a pact with myself that i wouldn’t nap the first week of school.
  4. the first week of school consists of only two days of classes for me.
  5. and i think i might have to break that pact.
  6. soon.
  7. eating all of the cookies i stole (“took what i’m entitled to”) from the dining hall last night and then sleeping would make my stomach and me very happy.
  8. happy thursday!
