  • Additional plans for the day:

  • Call Mom again about hot cross buns
  • and again…
  • Clean up flour that is everywhere in kitchen
  • Swear at raisins that are still sitting on counter and not in the hot cross buns that just came out of the oven
  • Invent time travel device to go back and put raisins in hot cross buns
  • Figure out how to assemble cake now that it’s made
  • Figure out how to transport cake
  • And hot cross buns…
  • Find time to put away laundry so not in crumpled heap when arriving home from party
  • Look up vacation options online in order to get away from stress and craziness for awhile
  • Remember that vacation time for the year is already planned out
  • Swear at raisins some more
  • Decide there will definitely NOT be time for a bike ride, and blame it on the raisins
  • Remember plates from the incubator that were supposed to be taken out during bike ride
  • Call lab and talk to labmate, who will take out plates…at 5pm
  • Send up Easter prayers that plates are okay despite 6 additional hours in the incubator
  • Swear at raisins some more, add in mixer just to cover the bases
  • Shower
  • Remember to take food/games/random items to party tonight
  • Find brain
  • Remember party tonight
  • Remember party tomorrow
  • Decide the rest of the list can wait
  • Relax
  • Remember that laundry is covering bed, thus eventually obstructing bedtime, and that flour is still everywhere in the kitchen, which could make breakfast interesting
  • Look for other objects to swear at, contemplate cats
  • Promise John that I’m not mad at him, just the raisins and other inanimate objects
  • Eat raisins
