Better post quick so Sauce can't get in on that one!

I assign seeing friends again after a long parting and lunch out when you're not paying for it.

I assign this thread to the Shire; reading it has improved my mood dramatically.

I also assign to the Shire:
Curly, crunchy red fall leaves scattered over a wet sidewalk that reflects bare branches against an overcast sky.

The conjunction of rich, strong coffee, Kate Bush, Borges and DSL.

My two year old when she hugged me and said "that's my mommy!"

Feta cheese, parmesan cheese, brie, provalone, fresh mozzerella, extra sharp smoked cheddar; oh, just, cheese in general.

Pesto sauce, warm crusty sourdough bread right out of the oven, grapes picked from my own vines, matar paneer, rice noodles with peanut sauce, macaroons, baklava, tiramisu, peaches, chai, real homemade linguini...etc.

The smell of garden soil when you first dig into it in the springtime.

The scent of star magnolias.

The color of the sky just after sunset, when it's the most saturated, glowing sapphire blue.

Russian sage, lilacs, violets, lamb's ears, lavender, phlox, virginia creeper, thyme, roses, peonies, allium, physostegia...

Warm, comfy slippers that don't look silly or fall off.

Knowing I'm leaving in 50 days (plane tickets - $516. Travelcard - $25. Finally seeing London - preciousss!)

The tiny red bugs that live in books; raccoons; white deer; wild geese.

The moment when the whole semester's work is finished ...

Sorry for being so long-winded. Once you get going, it's hard to stop.

Thanks, Rikae!

Though, I just realized that line above was my first assign-to-the-shire post at all! (eight to Mordor...)
So I think I'm not really all that shire-worthy.

Oh my... how could I ever have forgotten this? This is amazing...

I assign the smell of hot breakfast being cooked late on a Sunday morning... Oh, how could I possibly have forgotten that mum always makes a fantastic brunch? She'll smile as I come downstairs and tease about there being no better alarm clock than the smell of good food. It's what always happens, and I always forget...

Oh, being home rocks.

To quote The Temptations, I second that emotion.

I started out thinking I wouldn't find any of my professeurs that interesting, but now I am sort of sad to be leaving them. Except, one more year with Madame Julie, which shall be tres cool.

As thus, I would like to assign to the shire, wonderful french professeurs, who are as surprising as their expertise.

Also, first year anniversaries. Je t'aime mon petit choux, Il me déraille, il est aimable, pensif, et l'oh si romantique, mon homme des lettres.

Also, good friends, who haven't given up on themselves entirely. It is nice to feel that giving advice and having un peu parler has done some good.

Last but not least, new paintbrushes and paint! I can't wait to try them out.

Cost of gas to drive to Toys 'R' Us on Black Friday: $5

Lego Vikings sets: $33.80

Staying up late after work with your big brother and some wine and re-enacting Beowulf's death scene with your brand spanking new Lego dragon: priceless.

Unexpected peopel being king in the midst of a bad day.

Getting Christmas cards from friends across the country and across the world - after having the really horrible day on Friday it was great to receive news, good wishes, and invitations to visit.

Getting the Christmas tree ( and a free glass of mulled wine) and starting to fill the house with lights.

Finding baubles in exactly the right shade of rose red you coveted..... in an unexpected place..

18 hours sleep after 3 days of getting up early and continual exercise. It was quite startling to wake up and realise just how long I'd been asleep, but it did feel wonderful.

Seeing your (now) former students celebrating their day of getting out of the school!

How they and you yourself love the thing and still feel so sorry about it!

When that feels both ways, it's heaven and hell at the same time.

So good! So happy!

We were trying to come up with a story about the cycle to help her memorize it for finals next week. Finals, by the way, belong in Mordor, and I'm glad I don't have final exams anymore. It was a pretty horrible story. Example: It all started when Ox[aloacetate] and Py[ruvate] got together over orange juice [=citrus fruit = citrate]. Then they left, so the juice was alone [alone = isolated = isocitrate].

I think the 1337 made the story more memorable.

I feel guilty for celebrating the end of the quarter now, since my finals ended yesterday, and all of my friends have them today and tomorrow. Well, at least there is friday.

I assign to the Shire finals via final papers. They seem to be less of a worry over, and much more rewarding to turn in. Especially when you can finally go to sleep at night and not have half of the paper going through your head, because you've re-read it millions of times.

Having one of your classes finish more than a month before all your others. And having the final for said class be a take-home test.

Tea. Especially chai. There's nothing better to warm you up on a cold day than a steaming mug.

Sitting in the kitchen trying to revise, and being interrupted by the sudden need of my housemates to be 5 again. We made paper snowflakes and started a collection for Christmas decorations, and we made an extremely irreverent nativity scene. It was great fun.

Huh. I s'pose I slept better in uni than the average bloke, but it would've done me good grade-wise if maybe I'd re-read my papers more than about half a time....

Christmas is so much fun when you live in a shared house - we used to have a traditional enormous pre-Christmas feast, before everyone went home for the season. One of the blokes would cook it and we'd cram into the living room and eat until we burst. Lovely.

Sent it before and I send it again: Christmas! Fab! I've just come home from an afternoon spent eating and drinking with colleagues and laughing about weird stuff, to a lovely fully trimmed up living room. I've got about 300 white lights and a load of blue ones in the window and its lovely and cosy. Two weeks today I shall be lying on the settee, full of roast beef and gravy and roast taters and sprouts and feeling all content, like any good Hobbit should.
