I finally hooked up my computer, and I seem to be over the cold that had me all fucked up this weekend, so expect more of this... at least until I get a job.
Haven't heard much more about granny. She's currently in a rehab center, which is a step up from the hospital. She had a small stroke. Add that to the lung cancer, and now a diagnosis of severe diabetes, and she's surprisingly alive. Since the last time she went home, she ended up back in ICU, the doctors thought it would be best to have her in a supervised facility before sending her home to rest up for cancer treatment. My mom is staying there, so it didn't seem logistical to fly there and plug up the house.
One of my favorite people of all time happened to be in town this weekend. We went out to dinner at Waterbar on Saturday night. It was so fun to see him and meet his fiance!! He said they've planned the wedding in Omaha, Nebraska, so I totally want to make it there over Labor Day. I didn't hear how traveling back to Chicago went, considering the Snowpocalypse, but I hope he's ok!!
I'm pretty much finished cleaning and decorating Annie's apartment. It's pretty snazzy. The bathroom, though less functional, is probably my favorite room. I've also been cooking like crazy: blueberry muffins, monte cristos, vegetarian chili, burgers (2 kinds), and bananas foster were all things that I made from scratch last week (not counting everything else that I cooked that wasn't entirely 'from scratch'). Annie and I polished off a whole package of bacon between Bacon Blue Cheeseburgers and Monte Cristos on Sunday, which I don't even feel guilty about, though it definitely lowered our life expectancies. I'm planning on making a sweet potato cake tonight, as soon as I grab some eggs from the store.
I emailed out my official counter-offer today, and I didn't get my new, fake ACT scores back yet.
I'll bring the funny later,
