… and when she’s done she’ll feed you to her cat… Tuesday, Apr 21 2009 

Hi Everybody!

Well, I have big news, I guess. I got my results from NYU and they were not the ones I wanted, so I am not going to grad school this year after all. But after a weekend of thinking and talking to people about it (not to mention the drinking and boys), I’m actually pretty cool about it now.  It’s another year of freedom! And next year when I try again, I’ll be more prepared to entertain offers outside of New York, so that’ll be another card to play.

And since I really felt the interview went well, I have decided that what they are doing is hoping I’ll come back next year, when they can give me lots more money ‘coz I’ll be a repeat applicant. It’s happened before- my friend Simms got in that way on his second try, so there is precedent.

Anyway, I was sad for a while, but all will be well.

I made a list of things to do this year that are not grad school, and there’s some pretty awesome things on it.

I said not to mention the drinking and the boys.

I am super excited becasue Kelly is coming on Friday! And after she leaves, Mommy! This is gonna be all sorts of fun.

I have to find at least one new roommate this month. I want to do it when I am not so busy because the process is such a pain. Not looking forward to it, trying not to stress about it prematurely. So that’s that.

All of this involves me cleaning my house. It never ends!

I was supposed to have a date tonight but he just cancelled ‘coz he’s stuck at school. Lame. I was already shaved too.

Maybe I will make another pie instead. I wonder what I got in my house?

… she’s actual size, but she seems much bigger… Monday, Apr 13 2009 

Oh my lovelies, I have returned!

My computer is still broken and I still have to fix it. But today I did what I’d been thinking about anyway and bought another. It is a tiny little netbook, just for going out and about and writing upon. It was super cheap and I totally walked into the store and out again in15 minutes ‘coz I knew exactly what I wanted. And now I have the internet again, so I can do things like order parts to fix my old one..

Other than having no CD dive, it seems pretty much like it is a mini version of the acer I already have. But it gets 7 hrs of battery life and it weighs less than a hardcover book. Also it is a lovely prussian blue.

I have named it Egil.

My other project for today was to clean my kitchen. Not as exciting, I know, but boy did I feel like I’d accomplished something. I even rubbed the walls down wwith bleachwater. They were filthy. Now they shine.

Tomorrow, the Bathroom! Dun dun dun! Also, laundry. And maybe a pie. Maybe. I did buy blueberries yesterday.

I love it when I have two days off in a row. I get so much more done! If I only have one day off I always end up just sleeping all day.

I am very excited for the impending visitation of one Kelly O’Brien. And then the week after that, my Mommy! I can’t wait. I sense much delicious resturant food in my future..
