My landlord took my trash out for me while he was here. All of it. Walked it around the block to the big cans. And he took my dog for a 2-block walk while he was here. I can't believe it. I've never in my entire life met such a person. I'm beyond words.
I spent all afternoon homogenizing and centrifuging rat liver, and I messed it up. Damnit. Tomorrow, Take 2.

I went to the Walgreens and the power was off. They still rang me up, though. Used up all my cash.

I have a take-home test due monday. I need to get started on it. Damn, I am so tired.

When we two Parted

When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow --
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame;
I hear that name spoken,
And share in its shame.

They name thee bofore me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me --
Why were thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well: --
Long, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met --
In silence I grieve
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee? --
With silence and tears.


--George Gordon, Lord Byron
