I'm starting to feel like I'm on Jeopardy or something. I didn't want to make it as obvious as before, but wow, does it ever become difficult to think of creative and original clues at the end. Alternately, those hints could be compared to Wheel of Fortune, because the lengths of each word are listed there, but yeah. Now that I've gone to all the trouble of doing that, I forget how I felt before, but as the title of this entry sort of offers an idea, I am, or more appropriately was annoyed at how quickly he forgot about what he said the other night. If I had given him an answer, he almost certainly would've pressed me as to why / why not, even though he explicitly said he would not before. Also, I had a dream wherein he guessed it right on (without having to go through others first, or be given hints), and that led to having another dream about going to Tilbury to get our hair cut, and being given a half-empty container of cashews with a big sticker on it, with characters from that movie, which had me pretty distressed until I peeled the sticker off, crumpled it up in my closet, and then tossed and turned until I woke up. Dramatic as it sounds, I wish there was a way to completely forget about that last night I was in Toronto the first time I went, but as there's not, I'll probably just do the most noble thing, which is what I mentioned in my previous entry - download those for Brandon anyway, and try not to let it get to me, because I was fine right up until he started repeatedly questioning me.
In different news though, there's a message for me on the answering machine from somebody at St. Clair College regarding my night course. They say it's being pushed back a week, so more people can register, making it initially sound like what happened with my second year of computer programming - not enough interest here in Chatham, so they can't offer the course. If not, then... give me a full refund, and we'll call it even, because I can still read through the book, assuming I have that afterward. Continuing, the person leaving the message then said that if need be, it (the course) would be "offered as a tutorial", if that was alright with me, but what, pray tell, is a tutorial in this context. One-on-one teaching? I very much doubt it, because then I would essentially be paying for the entire course myself, and I doubt the registration fee covers paying one or more people to help me learn everything that they would normally be teaching a whole class of people, so for now, I'll call the number they gave, and ask some questions. Specifically, if the class is guaranteed to start the week after next, and if so, what room it will be held in. If not, however, then I'll need to know what a tutorial is. I do still want to take that class, and have ever since I started on that whole "what makes me me" obsession (as noted back then, there's a difference between reading up on those things online, and being taught in a proper academic atmosphere), but leave it for there to be complications.
On that note, we're off to get groceries even though I don't really want to go today, because Naomi is at work, and even though Mom said we would be heading out at 5, just got home from wherever she was at, and is quite insistent that we leave now, which really isn't what I need today. I'm not buying shoes yet though, because I can't afford them this week (I can, but not without going below $400, which is my limit until our next pay), and I think am actually only going so I can stop in at the bank and hopefully work on the way there, to pick up money from Manoah, and to deposit the check I got yesterday. Mom and Dad need their money as well, but that's nothing new, so I might as well get ready. The sooner we're back, the more time I'll have to relax~
