Temple Grandin

Did anyone else see the tv movie on HBO tonight about the life of Temple Grandin? She's an autistic woman that helped design ramps and things for cattle to keep them calm while they were being led ...well... to die.

Anyway, she also designed the hug machine that is featured in The Baby-Sitters' European Vacation. Susan went into it and was immediately at peace. It was quite interesting, and when she first went into it after seeing how it affected cattle by calming them down, I immediately thought of Susan.

On another note, I made the Dean's List, and my sister wants to get me something.
I told her she could get me BSC prequel and the three rereleases.

Chicken Pox

This girl in choir who sits two rows behind me has the chicken pox. There were only 3 second sopranos in class today (out of I don't remember), and we weren't anywhere near each other because there is a system to where we sit in choir (part and height). The poor girl who was sitting at the top by herself came down and sat by me. Basically this is how the conversation went:
her: "Jenny sits right by me. I'm glad I've already had the chicken pox."
Me: "You can get them twice."
her. "Really?"
Me: "Yup, it's rare though.

Thank you Mallory Pike for teaching the world that it's possible to get the chicken pox twice.

Apparently it can happen in adults with bad immune systems... in other words...if i was anywhere near her when she was contagious. I'm screwed.

I think i'm psyching myself out... I'm itching.

At least I know it's all in my head :)

I hope
