My housemate and his girlfriend, whom I thought had left for an event on campus, just came all the way up to my third floor room to show me that they had one of the other’s gloves on and that they were holding hands with the same colored gloves.
Suffice it to say, I gagged and pretended to vomit.
They laughed. Then left.
Apparently news of my ability to defragment a hard drive is spreading. Papa Don, accountant at O. was asking Marjorie when I would next be around because his computer is running slow. I’m going to have to start charging.
I love early morning phone calls.
Off to office hours for Modern American Lit. Oh Papa Don…
- I have spent the last 3 weekends at O. 2 were planned. The first I already wrote about. The second was O.’s Ladies’ Booster Retreat. 100 old women. Tired. But good I suppose. Sunshine cooked again. It all went well. Spent time with Marjie, of course. Sam wasn’t around: “Dad Weekend.” The third was a surprise. I got an e-mail at 10:30 pm Thursday last that said, basically, “We need you. Art will come get you Friday afternoon if you can come.” So I went. ‘Twas exhausting. But got to hang out with Sunshine. And Marjie and Sam. Sam and I had a clothespin war. Had to bleach my brain a couple times. Long story. Ask me later. But it was good. And Chief and Sunshine brought me back to G. on Sunday and got to see the house. I won’t be going back to O. for at least 3 weeks. But I have a design project in the meantime.
- On a completely unrelated note, I don’t think I’m going to grad school yet. I think I’ll be moving home for at least a year, getting a job, working to pay off some of my loans.
- I’m taking my small group and two other small groups to B. for paintball this weekend. I’m excited. But I have no hat or gloves or a lot of warm clothes with me. It will be… interesting.
That’s really all the update I have time for at the moment. Questions? Comments? You know how to find me.
This past weekend was “fall break” for students at G. It was also “fall festival” at O. So I spent Friday night, all of Saturday and Sunday, and Monday through lunch working. It was exhausting but good. I saw Marjie and Young Samuel, Tiffanie, Chief and Sunshine, Mama Janice and the Captain, Bill and Sue, Bob and Judy, Roger and Mary Ann, the Lindermans, and a lot of other people. It was great to be home and great to be exhausted.
I love spending time with Marjie and Sam. On Friday night, Sam was sitting on the counter at their house while Marjorie was on the phone and he was being silly. When I told him that I would take him and throw him in the lake he told me I couldn’t lift him so I did. We wrestled and laughed and had tons of fun. We had a lot of fun. On Saturday afternoon I went over to the house to hang out for a bit. Marjie and I had “3 o’clock” at 2 something and when she got her second cup, I teased her and took it away. Her reaction? “Leave me alone, let me get high! Let me be!” (coffee, by the way). It was funny and she’ll never live it down.
Sunshine was hilarious this weekend. Especially when she had to stand on a stool to slice turkey on the slicer. I got to melt cheese for the brocolli. Chief was his usual self. It was good to be home.
I’m going back again Friday night for the Ladies’ Retreat. I’m sure I’ll be exhausted by the end of the weekend. Just to warn you all. But it will be good and I will hopefully get to see Marjie for a bit during the day.
Anyway, I’m back in G. and I am tired. I had a paper due today that I didn’t really get done until 10 this morning. Suffice it to say… the latest I will get to sleep for at least another week and a half might be… 7:15… if I push it haha. But it will be ok.
Anyway, I’ve got to get some work done then small group and more homework. I’ll write more after the weekend.
I find it hard to believe that nearly three weeks has gone by since I’ve been to OBC. The three weeks prior to that seemed like torture. I could hardly stand to be away. But here we are, 2.5 weeks since seeing (and for the most part hearing from) my favorite people back at O. And I’m ok. Believe it or not, I’m ok.
Of course, I’m going there Friday night and spending nine meals there. I hope the weather is gorgeous. I’m going to make a documentary of my weekend, I think. I’ll have to make a list of shots I’ll need. I think I’ll abstain from most mischief-making. It’s hard work on your own, you know? Though I managed quite well the last time. I’ll stick to homework and Aunt Beast’s house.
I’m sure I’ll have some pictures. I’m sure you’ll sort of enjoy them.
Anyway, off to write a paper for a bit… it’s not due until Friday but Thursday has bigger fish to fry.
