Friday night. Here I sit in the computer lab doing homework...oh the life I live??? Wouldn't have it any other way. Just getting my homework all done so I can go watch the latest, recently sent to my mail, Project Runway Season 6 (I love Netflix). So, as I sit doing homework in one of the many computer labs on campus I try to choose my specific computer spot wisely. However, tonight I have been numerously interrupted by the young man sitting across the isle from me. Do I have some kind of sign on my forehead that say's, "Hey, I don't mind being interrupted!" The computer lab has a total of 10 (I seriously just counted us all) people in here, because we are all losers and like to do homework on a Friday night. Out of the 10 people here there are probably 50 free computers available. So, the guy sits across the isle from me. My lucky night is what you are thinking, but this guy is not my type...Yeah, I probably don't even have a type, and have actually given up on the whole "trying to find a man to call my eternal companion" thingamajig. Now, when I come to the computer lab I usually sit in the same spot so I can look up and see the clock. Yes, I know there is a clock on the computer, but I just like the feeling that the clock is just a glance up. I'm weird, you know that! Gosh this is utter rambling... Back to the real topic at hand here. This guy next to me cannot stop making all kinds of weird noises. He has his headphones on, and SO DO I! You would think that since I have my headphones on this guy couldn't irritate me. Oh contrair. I want to have hearing when I'm 80ish, so I'm listening to the wonderful Pandora Radio at a nice temperature, but even over my semi loud music I can still hear him making all these weird noises. He is singing to his music for CRYING OUT LOUD - he's got to realize that there are people in here besides him, I know we all think we sound good when we have our headphones on and sing along...I know I do! But, I know when it's appropriate to sing aloud and when it's not ;). His yawns are SO odd, and loud. The tapping of feet and drumming of fingers are getting old! There are many more odd noises coming from his direction and I know I'm not the only one in the computer lab who has glanced over with oddness. With all those annoyances said, it reminds me of a recent email my sister sent me.
"I was in Starbucks yesterday when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to pass gas. The music was really, really loud, so I timed my gas with the beat of the music. After a couple of songs, I started to feel better. I finished my coffee, and noticed that everybody was staring at me....Then I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my iPod."
Time to get back to the real issue at hand here - HOMEWORK!!! It's nice to take a break sometimes...
