Weak Week

cute poetry manatee
  1. I graduated. As one woman walked across the stage, I told my friend Gillian, "I have been infatuated with that woman since the day I met her, and now I'll never see her again."
  2. My English thesis was trashed, but I got an A, which means nothing to me. I always get A's.
  3. I finished my German thesis, thinking "I still have a lot of work on this."
  4. I found out that, although beer prices have gone up, brewers looking to cut corners are using gelatin as a clarification agent. Gelatin is particularly disgusting. Even when I ate meat, I hated the idea of gelatin.
  5. I found out that the gelatin they're using often comes from sturgeon swim bladders.
  6. Every kind of sturgeon is endangered, protected, or threatened.
  7. Sturgeon is the most highly poached fish in the world because of the value of their roe.
  8. The only letter in my mailbox was notification for jury duty.
  9. My landlord raised my rent.
  10. I couldn't go to see Measure for Measure, and I really wanted to.
  11. My German professor emailed me to tell me he couldn't open my thesis on his Mac.
  12. "Indiana Jones 4" is about Aliens; it's a prequel to "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
  13. I went to one of the worst readings I have ever been to.
  14. The woman who walked across the stage asked me to join her for drinks with friends. I went and she told me she was leaving for NYC and that I would never see her again. She hugged me and said goodbye.

Next week will just have to be better. That's all there is to it.
