I got my first piece of honest to god fanmail today...a postcard from a friend of a friend who sent me a joke. The joke is funny, but what's REALLY funny is the postcard. Unfortunately for all of you, I accidentally packed it, so you'll have to wait a couple days for the joke...give you something to look forward to...or builds character...or something. The postcard had Stewie from The Family Guy on it, but I can't remember exactly what it said and I don't want to quote it wrong...because then it won't be funny later.
Yesterday was the last day of work. Uneventful and not too mentally challenging, which is probably good because I stayed out too late the night before and also took my cough medicine with a chaser of 4 beers, so it was a relatively slow to get started day. I'm still feeling a bit under the weather which sucks...I leave this afternoon for TVPNM and would really like to be in top form since I'm meeting "the gang" for drinks directly upon landing. Oh well, God knows somehow I'll muddle through...far be it from me to let a little thing like throat-swollen-shut-plus-plaquelike-symptoms to stop me from having a few drinks...priorities people!
This place in my life feels a little bit like deja vu...last summer I had just gotten out of the Air Force and was awaiting the start of law school while working at a temp agency in Oklahoma City and living with M. There might have been some drinking induced antics as well, but I'll never tell...well, I might...we'll see. This summer I am once again done with my job and waiting for school to start back up, the only difference is I'm not actually doing anything productive that leads to me having money, and there have been far fewer drinking related incidents...which is probably something to be thankful for on some level. I hope to get out to OKC again sometime next month though...so we'll see...it could still happen.
D.C. has been quite an adventure, but I think I'm putting it in the "nice place to visit but wouldn't want to live there"category. More and more I imagine myself staying on the West Coast and trying to actually build a life for once, instead of just moving around every 2 years and never worrying about how long I'll stay. Maybe I'm getting old? (horrors!) At any rate, I have a bunch of appointments lined up for the beginning of next week to look at apartments and I am SOOO excited at the prospect of not having to live in the glorified grad student housing and at having all of my stuff out of storage. Sweet, sweet couch...where have you been?
At any rate, the next post will be from TVPNM...YAY!
