Listening to James Bond brass band music, and glanced up at the TV to see Morgan Freeman walking off adjusting his tie. Don't know what the movie/show was, but it's made my day :)

Well, at least it was an invitational and not a regional or state tournament. That would be terrible.

this made me smile :)

I am not the only one who watches sherlock! BBC, I presume ?
Yes, you are correct. chia and KittenPsychology also watch the show, as proven by the posts a couple pages back.
I wore a long trench coat with a dark blue scarf. Complete with a dress white shirt and long black pants. It was rather fun.
(Granted, I have only watched 2 episodes of the show. I am hoping to remedy that soon.)

Ooh, you have a relatively legit Sherlock-style trenchcoat? When I was shopping for a new winter coat, I would have tried to find one (okay, I did try), but realized I'm too short to pull it off :lol: , so went with something else.
kjhs knows I watch the show - I introduced her and a couple of other people to it when I discovered it a couple of months ago. So on here it's us, KittenPsych, and you (and some people's friends, don't remember who). Have you watched episodes from the 2010 season, or the ones that just came out?

Just 2010 the first two. You know, Study in Pink and Blind Banker.

It asked to find the distance between Mounds View High School and some store, I think, as well what season it was. Annoyingly, no scale was provided, so we had to improvise using the football field.
Edit: ↓ Yeah, it was Google maps.


By the way, that delightful test is on the Remote Sensing Test Exchange 2012 now. If you could give me some feedback, that would be great.

Ah, yes; I'd forgotten you wrote that test. How exciting!

On an unrelated note, I appear to have a sore throat now... :? Hopefully it goes away soon.

Sore throats are bad, hope you get better.

I see long nights ahead...less than three weeks to go before regionals and I suddenly find out I'm doing disease with a partner who also has not been attending meetings. **epic facepalm**

NERDS IN OTHER PLACES HAVE BEGUN TO AMASS THEIR ARMIES OF DOOM!!! See http://www.loldig.com/wp-content/upload ... tsaber.jpg 2012 might happen after all.:lol:

Show that to our coach. He'd love it.

Come on, your partner isn't that bad...when she applies herself (which, quite honestly...is almost never). Just, you know, go motivate her. Or I can go motivate her for you. Or you can just study and take all the weight on your own shoulders. Of course, you're a hard partner to please, so I dunno...
If you don't like her that much, then you must be quite happy you have her as your partner for TWO events now. ;) I would have volunteered for Crime Busters since I did it last year and really liked it, but I already ad Keep the Heat in that event slot...and without me, our coach's son is screwed. No offense to him, but it's true. He can't do the physics of thermo for the life of him...

I don't like sore throats. Having one for a span of two weeks is painful. Hope you get better, Koko.

Yes, that is quite fun. Except in my case I was dressed as Watson. That (AMP'd) was seriously amazing, though. I mean, free pizza, free t-shirts, and 4 awards when our team had about 16 less people then the other teams :lol: (Also, any idea if Lestrade or Anderson have Scioly accounts?)
Hello, I'm John.

Sherlock (after doing something in reverse): Reverse pyschology!
Me: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Lestrade: Inconcievable!
Sherlock: I know what it means, I just like saying it.
Mrs. Hudson: You guys are awesome!
