Man, Maura Hall is awfully quiet in the mornings. See, for some bizarre reason, I am WAY early for Spanish class today. How the heck did this happen?
I set my alarm for 7:45. I got up, puttered around the house for a while, and at 8:15 Moira Standard Time I left to make the trek up the hill. I've been sitting in the empty classroom for a while, long enough for me to start to wonder if I was in a time warp or class had been magically cancelled or something, long enough for me to get the Spanish homework I didn't do last night done.
Finally, I heard some guy whistling in the hallways and knew that the world wasn't suddenly annihilated by a nuclear blast while I was sleeping last night (It's too darn pretty outside anyway... though I wonder, what does the morning after look like?).
So I slide to the desk next to mine that has a computer that works instead of one that just stares at me sullenly unwilling to obey my commands (this is a good thing or I'd never pay attention in la clase) and, lo and behold and all that jazz, it's only 8:15.
What happened to my time???
Perhaps, and this is possible and it's happened to me before, I really was in a time warp this morning! Perhaps, on the half mile or so (2422 steps according to my pedometer) up the hill, I stepped through a magickal bubble of time that transported me back in time about, oh, 15-20 minutes?
This would be quite an unusual event because I've found that generally time warps have me "late" rather than "early" for an event - why, one time, my best friend (amiga mejor, if you will) and I left a location at the EXACT SAME TIME as the rest of our friends, only to arrive one hour later than the rest. What happened? It remains a mystery to this day!
Speaking of mysteries, have you guys seen the GRIP (Ghost Researchers In Pennsylvania) flyer plastered around campus this week? There's supposed to be a ghost hunt / story time in 5th floor Maura / the cemetary Saturday night at 7 p.m. Anyone know anything about this? Is anyone going?? I'm all about it.
I've been trying to do a ghost hunt for a while... I keep suggesting it to my friends but they generally just give me blank looks and carry on with whatever it was they were doing before I started babbling... Anyway, I'm shooting on being there (5th floor Maura lounge - wherever that is - at 7 p.m.) Perhaps I will see you and some ghostlies folks there. Sweet!
I'm going. It sounds like great fun.Posted by: Amanda at April 1, 2005 10:02 AM
Hey, I'm going too, I love all that ghost stuff. Oh yeah, 3rd Maura is totally creepy. There are many times when I was by myself late at night and I swear every time it feels like someone is following me, but when I turn around there is no one there. It gives me the willies thinking about it, lol.Posted by: Sue at April 1, 2005 10:28 AM
I don't think I've ever been on time for anything in my entire life. I'm always oddly early or fashionably late (usually the latter). I just run by my own time I guess. I also misjudge how long it will take me to do something. Sometimes I really wish for that time warp.Posted by: Nessa at April 1, 2005 10:33 AM
It looks really cool! I should be there myself.
I find myself early for all of my classes. But none class stuff? forget it. im usually late.Posted by: Louis Gagliardi at April 1, 2005 10:39 AM
Sweet! I'm glad other people will be there. I think it sounds way cool!Posted by: moira at April 1, 2005 04:06 PM
