“Did Mendel Eat His Peas?” and Other Questions Biologists Ask Historians
If you think people get better than these, you’re absolutely wrong.
(Context: Sapphire just gave me a Reece’s cup ^^)
Yesterday, Fritz, Finn, Sapphire and I attempted to go get really cheap donuts across town. However, by the time we’d arrived, they had freaking sold out. We were sorely disappointed (well, except for Finn, who is apparently on a diet because he’s a skrub). The sale is supposedly happening again tonight, so here’s hoping…
Hello, all! I realize it has been quite a while since I updated with anything more than a few brief sentences or poorly focused pictures. Since I have a little time to spare, I figured I would rectify this situation with a few lines about life upon returning to UNP for our spring semester. It probably will not surprise you to learn that antics and shenanigans have occurred in abundance, and I feel that it is my civil duty to inform you of these. What follows is a topical overview of the past several days at UNP.
Since Junhi, Fritz and Finn have been reunited (Bill is in Japan, and their new roommate has yet to participate in many group shenanigans that I have witnessed), the primary focus of their energies has been to spruce up their room in anticipation of their new “home entertainment system” (projector/sound system combo that is still having its kinks worked out). Here is a picture of what they’ve got so far:
Like I said, working out the kinks.
Anyway, Finn spent much of the time that they spent cleaning their room rearranging certain items and putting things in conspicuous locations, making 500, in Junhi’s words, “Poseriffic.” Finn insisted that using Evangelion figures as bookends for Junhi’s giant stack of freaking economics books that he reads for fun would make them appear “cultured,” although Junhi insisted that it was, like most things Finn seems to like, “weeaboo trash”
One particular example of Finn poserifying 500 came when he put up Junhi’s Korean calendar:
Finn: [starts putting up calendar]
Junhi: [insists that this counts as being a poser]
Finn: But you’re Korean!
Junhi: **** yeah I’m Korean!
Finn: Then it’s not posing!
I could be paraphrasing, but that was the general gist of it.
Shopping with Children
I have always maintained that shopping with Fritz and Finn is like shopping with small children. In fact, between Finn’s propensity to touch literally everything and knock all of the things off of shelves and Fritz’s tendency to get lost, accidentally or purposefully, and then brood when we find him again, I would almost say shopping with children might be easier.
Anyway, yesterday we went out to get who knows what (it seems they never really have a clear idea of what they want to get at the store when they go, but oh well), and, as you’d expect, it was no different.
Naturally, there were antics of the normal variety, but they were mild enough that I can’t recall them even long enough to write them down. However, one exciting thing did happen. They found an orphaned dinosaur piñata.
Look at them. Look at how proud they are.
That’s all that happened, really. This entire post was built on the pretense of presenting that picture. Now that it’s out there, I’m not sure what to do. Oh well.
Turns out that Fritz and I are in the same genetics section. What interesting things happened with that, you may ask? Nothing. We just discovered the heterozygoat meme.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by! I know the length of this post is still underwhelming, but I’m sure that I will be updating with antics soon! (We are planning to go to the gym, after all… A bad idea, as UNP students will know for reasons undisclosed. I know, but we do what we want.)
