3,7-dihydro-1,3,7-trimethyl-1H-purine-2,6-dione

I don’t know about you, but this IUPAC name makes me want to cry. This is what we are doing in my OCHEM class. This is the IUPAC for caffeine, I thought it was appropriate because I am seriously lacking  3,7-dihydro-1,3,7-trimethyl-1H-purine-2,6-dione right now. I tried napping before class tonight, but this just reaffirmed my hatred for naps. I wake up feeling worse than I did before I napped. Or maybe this time it was the super size piece of cake I had before I napped…

I have a serious weakness for Costco cake. My friends laugh at me sometimes because I am so obsessed with healthy eating, that when I tell them I am in love with the mile high frosting cake from Costco it’s almost a contradiction. I was sitting in my room minding my business when I heard my lovely mother walk in the door. She greets my sister and proceeds to say, “I have leftover cake!” I jumped out of my chair so fast I didn’t even know who I was. I ran down the stairs like a gazelle escaping a cheetah and said, “DID YOU SAY CAKE!?” No shame. 

Anyway, my chem class seriously sucks. My teacher however, is awesome. Straight up hippie from the 60’s. He wears unique clothes, long hair in a ponytail or in pigtails with buttons all over his clothes and in his hair. Rings on 7 of his 10 fingers, skull necklace, annnnddd I am pretty sure he doesn’t wear underwear. He wore a white outfit on Tuesday, and I could see his white shirt tucked into his shorts, but nothing else. I know I said I dig old dudes, but not this old..and he is not my type so I was NOT checking him out..I merely glanced, saw, and was scared all in one minute. 

My solution for an awful night of class after an exhausting day of work..a second helping of cake with a side of Family Guy. No class until Tuesday..YAY. Just gotta get through the next 7 weeks! Tomorrow I am going grocery shopping after a hiatus of a few weeks. I am so excited. On the list: PRODUCE x 15, FRUIT x 20 and of course, chocolate in some way, shape, or form.

  1. chocolate is the cure for ANYTHING! I am totally feelin your pain: I’m taking a calc class this summer and I honestly think I’d rather die a slow and painful death than do ONE MORE EQUATION!! glad you got some cake to cheer you up! i had about 20 dove chocolates tonight to help me :)

  2. I am SO glad that you check out older guys because while I was Strawberry pickin on my friend’s farm, his uncle came out and he was a hott older farmer, with muscles honed from working the fields all his life and a horrendous farmer’s tan bod. I wanted to take a pic with him so bad but I didn’t want to be a creep :(

    Cake is the bomb. I love that you have no shame. And you deserved it after all that chemistry crap… psh who needs to learn that anyways? The best wedding cake I ever had was from Cosco. I was shocked when the bride told me she picked it up there that very morning… it was delicious and better than any other.

  3. I’m not surprised you’re tired!!!! When you mentioned your schedule in your last post—the early morning work and late night class….with a run in between…I was like, wow–she’s either the energizer bunny or that’s gonna catch up!

    Cake definitely helps everything become better :)

  4. Haha thanks for the gut laugh with the family guy video, classic :)
    Eww sorry to hear about them chem class sucking, but a no-underwear-wearing hippy for a chem teacher?! LUCKY! All of mine have been from Pakistan or China…booooo

  5. ohhhhh organic chem and IUPAC naming…I did that this year…..it sucks but YOU CAN DO IT :) think of it as a game or puzzle ( haha I know that might not make it anymore interesting) but having cake will make you smart i hear ;) good luck with your summer class…I LOVE FAMILY GUY TOOO

  6. I love Costco pumpkin pies and since the Marie Callenders in my area are all gone guess where I’ll be getting my pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving … I love “Family Guy” and I have a crush on Brian.

  7. your comment was so freaking sweet- oh my gosh, it touched my heart so much! you are so special and such an encouragement! AND SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
