Sharif was inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa honor society yesterday evening. I went to the ceremony, as did his parents, and we were treated to a lot of pomp. I think my favorite part was that as each inductee was walking up to the stage (to sign a book, shake lots of hands, and receive a candle and a flower), the guy calling out names would also read a little bio about the student and a short acceptance-speech sort of thing that the inductee had written. The guy never bothered to change the wording however, so it usually came out sounding like “Kelly Johnson will be graduating in 2006 and transferring to UMBC. She would like to thank my mom, my dad, and my loving boyfriend Earl." Every time the guy thanked his husband or one of his apparently numerous kids, I was amused. It was all very impressive, though, with the inductees representing the top 5% of students at the college, so I’m all proud.

Later there was a reception with meatballs and chicken strips and cheese. And a walk through the cold and windy campus- with a stop at the Chemistry lab to see the boy’s workplace and chat briefly with Juan.

I am extremely tired again today. Surely this is because, instead of going home after the ceremony and straight to bed, I went back to Sharif’s house to witness his newest 360 game. It’s pretty! And I got to start a game and play for awhile- I created my own character, a wood elf with green hair and a nose that turns up a bit. I like her much. But eventually I was killed by a goblin witch, and was able to drag myself home for the sleeping. Stupid goblin witch. Good sleeping.
