Sad News

Phish has announced that they are breaking up. Very sad news indeed.

On another note, last night crazy scary storms came through the area. I really thought there was going to be a tornado. The sky changed from blue to pink to green to grey back to pink.... it was really really eerie, pretty but eerie. But, thank Creation, no tornados, just wicked bad thunderstorms in my area. I think the storm wiped out all the ciccadas, since I didn't hear a peep from them this morning, but I could be wrong.

Hope you are all having a wonderful wednesday.

When am I not sleepy??

Was in Buffalo this past weekend for my Dad's graduation from grad school. About 30 students graduated so the ceremony was nice & short! Seriously, it was a very nice ceremony, the only downfall was that there wasn't any air conditioning so it was kind of warm in the chapel (Dad graduated from a Seminary, hence graduation taking place in the chapel.)

It was good to spend quality time with my family. Except for my sister-in-law Heather, all of us kids were in town for the weekend. I can't believe how big my niece & nephews are getting. They're so much fun to be around, especially when they're in a good mood.

I got back to my place last night around 9:30. I should have been home much much earlier. My Southwest flight was originally at 12:10pm, but it was overbooked & they needed a few volunteers to get bumped. I jumped at it. So, I got a kick-ass voucher for a future flight and was booked on the 3:40 flight to BWI.


Once we were all on the plane one of the Southwest reps came on and made an anouncement that because of a really bad storm system right in our flight path we would be delayed and at that point they weren't sure when we'd take off. I guess the storm was so bad BWI was shut down for an hour or so because lightning was hitting the tarmack.

So 2 1/2 hours later we took off. Once we landed I got off the plane as fast as possible jetted to go claim my luggage(it was waiting for me at the airport) and went outside to wait for a shuttle to the MARC/BWI Rail Station. I think the gods were watching out for me or something, because I didn't have to wait for a shuttle and once I got to the train station I didn't have to wait for a train. Although from BWI to my place it's still a good trip, a little over 2 hours.

I was tired & wanted to go to bed, but around 10pm I got my second wind & sucked into Colonial House on PBS and didn't get to bed until midnight. Needless to say waking up this morning wasn't much fun.

I saw my first ciccada today & am officially freaked out. I posted on Will's blog that I feel like I'm the only person who's completely freaked out by this whole thing.

Happy Hour on May 21st. Come drink with me and my insane coworkers!!! Details to follow.

Random Thoughts

Diet Coke sucks ass. blech. I wish the Subway by my office would get a Pepsi distributor.

Got my hair cut & he blew dried it straight. Now my big mellon head looks bigger than usual. I do like the cut, just not the dry.

The new Counting Crows song "Accidentally In Love" from the Shrek 2 soundtrack kicks ass.

I would have Adam Duritz's babies if he would just let me. Although I don't think Niels would appreciate it very much.

I wish they'd turn the AC on in my apartment building. I don't like going home & it being hotter inside my apartment than it is outside. (This morning it was 85 in my apt, while it was only 70 outside, at 7am.)

Any Day Now...

Grades could get posted any day!!! I would like to know how shitty I did this semester thank you very much!

Now that the semester's over I've been reveling in my free time. It still hasn't sunk in that the semester's over. I've been getting home from work wondering what schoolwork I need to do & then remember I DON'T HAVE ANY!!!!

Ah the joys of the semester being over & not taking summer classes!!!

Oh So Tired...

Today is a double tall soy lattee kind of day. God bless Starbucks. Say what you will about them, but working for that company was the best job I ever had and I like their coffee. So there!

Went to bed early (10pm) but didn't sleep well. Had a hard time getting out fo bed. I could put my head on my desk and nap for a few hours.

I hope the tiredness abates, I have a final at 6:30 tonight, which is not a good time for me to begin with, let alone take a final at that time.

But once 8:30pm comes around, I will be FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE...... well until next semeter. I am so excited!! This is the first summer in 4 years that I haven't taken a summer class. I will be able to knit knit knit every evening without feeling guilty!! YAY!!!
