Spring Break recap
Firstly, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to Jamie, Maxie, and Angela for guest blogging while I was gone. Your posts were absolutely delightful… and I’m thinking you should just write for my blog from now on, because this past week was way funnier and more
interesting than the stuff I usually write! Jamie, I’ll bet you were the best Jet Chicago’s south side had every seen. And Maxie: compulsive air guitarist and the King’s face. For obvious reasons. And, Angela? That’s the best eavesdropping episode I have ever heard. You win at being awesome.
Secondly, I promise to get back to commenting regularly. I tried while I was away, as I came into some unpredictable wireless access at my friend’s house. I’ve added lots of fun new blogs to my reader and will try to catch up when possible.
Thirdly, the night before I left for TX, I tripped over my iBook’s ethernet cord and screwed up the port. The worst part? I need that quick ethernet connection for my senior thesis, to do my “in world” research in SecondLife. So? I hit up Apple’s refurbished website and purchased a GORGEOUS “new” MacBook Pro. I’m using it now and adoring it.
Fourthly, MY SPRING BREAK WAS AWESOME. Andrea, my best friend since high school, lives in San Antonio with her beautiful 16 month old daughter Oasis, and her doting,amazing husband Dustin, and her snuggly mutt Shiner. We didn’t do any sight-seeing, as I had seen the city when I visited last March. We woke up early, drank tea on the porch while Oasis played in the yard, challenged each other in Monopoly, Scrabble, Life, and Scrabbulous during Oasis’s naps, caucused!, went grocery shopping and out for coffee, and took down a bottle of raspberry rum after Oasis went to bed.
What I love most about Andrea is, though we’ve only seen each other three times in the past three years, we can always pick up right where we left off. We email each other a couple times a week. And, even with all its pitfalls, Facebook has been a godsend for keeping in touch. (Especially when she gets me addicted to applications like Scrabbulous!) Andrea is the only female I’ve ever met who can keep up with my fast-paced conversations that go in 300 different directions. At this time in my life where I’ve been trying to cut out all the negative energy from others, she’s been a guiding light. I’m an only child, but after this week, I know that’s not entirely true. Andrea is my sister… and she always will be.
“Mother, I would be very grateful if you gave me a morsel of that doughnut.”I think I heard my biological clock tick for the first time…
