Rainy rain

It's one of those dreary, thunderful days - I can hear the drops beat down on the roof of the school while I sit in one of the study rooms (but not my favorite one because they're doing Internship interviews in that one, boo). Should be studying for either of my two upcoming tests but... eh.
Dawn is due soon. Her little boy is supposed to be here in December but she thinks he'll be here early (as his big sis was). Either way they're both doing well and I'm excited to be an "Aunt" again. (I just thought the other day that I don't think I'd mentioned her news on here yet since when I first found out months ago she wanted to keep it hush until she was farther along. But yay and congrats!)
Back to the grindstone...

baking up some karma cookies

If you're interested in wine tasting, specifically Oklahoma wines, then I'd suggest attending this function at 50 Penn Place on Nov 15th. I am personally looking forward to it, having secured a DD and entrusted myself to mi mama & auntie who both also enjoy a nip of the vino now and then. There are even workshops offered that day that sound interesting (wine tasting with a sommelier, food & wine pairing, and how to grow grapes in Okieland). What's not to love??
I made some cookies this evening and contemplated, as they baked, how nice and homey cookies are. My chocolate chip cookies aren't pretentious or fancy but soft and flavorful (it's the added almond extract that inserts an extra unexpected kick). Cooking and baking are so like compounding in a chemistry/pharmacy lab, in my opinion, that I find it odd that many of my pharmy classmates profess to be inept at cooking. They require recipies, ingredients, measuring, mixing, and "touching up" just like the most basic of chemistry lab exercises do. Hmm... Mayhaps it is a ploy to procure free cookies? (great idea! What was I thinking??)
Had an interesting weekend with Skronky. Got to watch him work magic on some kitchen plumbing and am impressed beyond words at his newly-revealed skills. I hope to incorporated these skills into a master plan for taking over the world some day but please don't spill the beans to Skronky or he might go fishing that weekend instead. My plan working requires the utmost secrecy and discretion (causing me to rethink posting such on the internets. Yes, plural. Internets.)
That is all. Good luck and good night.

And the fun continues

Done with Endo and on to GI... Had a nice Friday evening with Skronky at a friend's wedding at Tres Suenos in Luther, OK. Short, sweet, and to the point - plus open wine bar! Yay!
Good weekend (other than all the hardcore studying on Sunday). Made it through my OTC test and doing a communications class presentation. Now just keeping in the loop until our next test (next week). Funny how it goes in waves...
Bid Day last week netted my fraternity just 19 pledges total (for both campuses). Of the pledge class only 30 of them even pledged in OKC which is really, really much less than in previous years.
Nothing exciting going on in my life... just hanging in there.

Everything else is on hold until then.
Love to all and wish me luck on that Final!
