Meet Edwin & Eloise.
It's a tradition in Annie's family that all the girls take off the day after Christmas and spend the day shopping. They go around trying to take advantage of 50% off all the crap that's left after the holiday shopping season. Two years ago, Annie's mom walked back in with Edwin & Eloise, the evil, possessed, stuffed deer that spend the nights walking around and whispering cruel things in my ear.
This year, Annie's house was so packed with people that we had to spend a few nights on her living room floor next to Edwin & Eloise. I kept covering them with clothes so that they wouldn't be hovering over me while I slept. Several times, the clothes were removed before the next morning. This was the first solid proof that I had that these screwed up stuffed dolls were alive. Nobody believed me.
Finally, a few days ago, I returned by myself to find them doing the nasty. So, I snapped a few pics on my iPhone in hopes of once, and for all, proving to the world that these demon deer should be destroyed!
Other than that, my life remains a whirlwind, though Tahoe was a nice break. I've applied to 17 jobs so far, and I have at least 6 more to apply to today. I've spoken on the phone to a lab that plans on giving me an offer before the end of the week. I am also meeting with a tutoring company tomorrow. So, things are moving on that front.
Granny ended up back in the hospital, ICU specifically. Today she was moved out of ICU, but things don't sound well. I'm considering flying back home next week to spend some time. Maybe seeing me will help her along, cuz I am her favorite person in the world. My cousin (my age) just ended up in the same hospital for thyroid problems. What's going on people???
I took a skating (type of skiing) lesson up at Tahoe, and it's something that I'd like to try a few more times. I regularly stride when I'm cross-country skiing up there, but learning the faster and more modern style could be fun. I'm considering doing the Great Ski Race in March, which is a 30k race. We'll see if I'm in good enough shape by then. I'm playing tennis with an old friend today, so that's a start.
That's enough for today. It's hard to blog in Tahoe, but I should have a few consistent days of it this week before I return to L.A. to get the last of my stuff!
Still scared to fart,
