If you find my right arm on the side of the road...

...please return it to the nearest hospital so I can have it reattached.

Last night two friends and I waddled through the streets of Geneva carrying a large, heavy plastic bin full of: eight boxes of orange juice, six boxes of pineapple juice, eight energy drinks, six liters of Coke, four liters of iced tea, two liters of Sprite, two bottles of tequila, a bottle of vodka and a bottle of grenadine. And some peanuts.

The aforementioned assortment of drinks was for a party that the student association held for our new students and exchange students. It was well publicized, and all of the delegates (myself included) made sure to personally invite all the new/exchange students in their respective departments. So imagine our surprise when only two new students came to the party. Usually our parties are well-attended, so we were rather disappointed with the turnout. I was particularly disappointed because I'm looking to expand my circle of French-speaking friends...

On a happier note, I found a good German-English dictionary at the English bookstore this morning. I realize that I have an abnormal level of affection for reference books in general, but I suppose that if you have to feel unusually affectionate towards something, stores of knowledge are a good thing to love.

I am finally caught up on sleep, thank goodness. Tomorrow I'm back to work and classes...

Poor sweetie. All that work to get refreshments and no one wanted to party!

When I read the list of what you were carrying I was wondering what kind of shopping list you made! lol

I can just picture three souls burdened with the weight of all those refreshments...only two students, I wonder why, how frustrating.

I have a love of reference books too, my fondness is more of maps and almanacs. Give me the facts, ma'am.
