BR 2-15: The Ooze

You are a college student.
You live alone in your apartment near the college. Most days you wake up, walk to class, and the return home. You study a little, you party a little. You sleep a lot.
You don't clean your apartment every often. OK, maybe you never clean it. Hey, it's a busy life!
There ate dirty socks in your bedroom. There are dirty dishes in the kitchen. And the bathroom... Who knows what's living in there?
Tomorrow is a big day. Your new roommate, Chuck, is coming. You need to clean the bathroom before the comes.
It can't be that dirty - right? (p.1)

 I am a college student. I found a slimy, green... Ooze in the bath room. I took it school to find out what it is. The next day, I go to see your biology teacher Dr. Harvey to take the ooze. He wants to study it because the 'ooze' may be a new species. They could discover new drugs, maybe win a Nobel Prize and I would be famous! I let the scientists study the ooze...
When I read this series, I always come to the bad end. I want to come to the happy or normal end just for once.

And the only question I left with, is how did seventy billion dollars disappeared overnight?
Today we watched the movie trailer of the Gold. This movie's main theme is the money. I thought the money make us crazy and be debauch.  In fact, this movie is the true story. I am so afraid of the winners  be fall into the loser. I do not like this kind of the movie. And I thought why the purport of the western movie has bed scene. Maybe it  just I chosen the movies that such things. But I do no hate it. :) I want to watch the some movies now, so I will go to the theater to watch them in the spring vacation.
