She was hiding in the plants watching him! She's such a big dork! There's two more on my Flickr page...

[livejournal.com profile] motogeek took my husband snowmobiling this weekend up in Grand Marais.

Check out the stud:

So, Monday was my first Supply Chain Management class. It was also my first elective for the major, thus I was surrounded by Operations Management undergrad students. Most of whom are white males from Minnesota.

This is a huge change from all of the other classes I've taken this time around where 75 to 80% of the students are from India, with another 15 - 20% being from Nepal (I'm usually hanging out with the Nepalese). And one of those Nepalese is in the Supply Chain class with me - Jenius.

Side Note: Last night one Nepalese girl, Sama, let me try some "traditional Nepalese food": dried apricots (with the pits still in them) coated with sugar and some kind of hot, spicy stuff with a kick. Oh, it was so good...

But anyway, so the first class has about 40 people in it and we all have to go around and introduce ourselves. As I said before, most of the people are white males from Minnesota. So, in their introductions, at least 20 of them all said that either "I'm in Ops Management and I like sports/hockey" or "I'm in Ops Management and I like hunting and/or fishing." You can't make that shit up. Then, after they hit the first white Minnesotan girl (who also likes fishing), they come across a second white Minnesotan girl, dressed in all black with dyed black hair and multiple facial piercings. Her response? "Hi, I'm [name], I'm in Ops Management and I've been a professional Michael Jackson impersonator for the past seven years."

You can't make that shit up, either.




In other news, I've been feeling the financial crunch lately. What with holiday spending, the trip to Hawaii and paying for tuition and books ($2000 a semester), I've been feeling very poor. My wonderful husband keeps offering to help pay for school, but I'm stubborn and prideful and really want to be able to do it myself. I know, I don't deserve him. This summer I have to give Darlene back to [livejournal.com profile] viksin (or her sister) so if I want to be a biker babe for the second year in a row, I'll need to buy a bike, too. Unless my first review here gives me a multi-thousand dollar raise, that ain't happenin'. So Tim get's a wild hair up his butt. We're at a poker party last weekend at [livejournal.com profile] motogeek's and Puzi is there and tells us that he might be willing to sell the "alien" bike (which I think is another small Honda Rebel like Darlene) for pretty cheap (like $650, cheap). I don't know if it was the "Guzzi Juice" or the fact that he won first place in the first two tournaments, but Tim decides that if I like the alien bike, he'll buy it for me.

Yes, I am a lucky woman. :)

Last night we went to Spamalot in St. Paul. I was entertained although all of the Broadway jokes flew high over my head. [livejournal.com profile] theeothertim decided the dancing girl in purple was his favorite and he was mighty jealous of Puzi's forethought of bringing opera glasses to get a better view. *ahem*

So, what that also means is we drove under 35W literally not more than 15 minutes before it collapsed on our way to dinner at Sakura.

Tim and I must be horrible people because our first thought is to go see it, not call everyone in our phone book who could remotely be anywhere near that bridge. Is that bad of us? I'm not sure.

We got to spend some time with [livejournal.com profile] superna and hardly any with [livejournal.com profile] unopeneddoor (sorry about that) and then when we dropped 'Na off, we got to see [livejournal.com profile] motogeek and his new proof of uber cool globalization. He's slowly going to take over the world, that one.

Off to Mexican Village for Gary's birthday dinner...
