Three movies I would like to see: 1. Blood and Chocolate (I’m such a geek) 2. Volver 3. I can’t really think of a third one right now. Shoutouts to three people I need to email: 1. Tammy W. 2. Lynda H. 3. Cris L. Three things I threw out from the fridge because they were spoiled: 1. Parmesan cheese 2. Eggs 3. Yogurt Three things I wish would happen to me today: 1. Win lotto 2. Have a brainstorm about interpersonal communication 3. Have something intelligent to blog about.

1. The heater in my car (brrr) 2. Louisiana School’s SEF system, which they use to inform the parents about their child’s progress. The kid didn’t turn in a lab this week (bad girl!) 3. The clothes I bought at the beginning of the semester. I really needed them. They were a good investment. ∞
