(unlikely dreams)

vrijdag 17 december 2004

Well, today's the big day! "I'm all packed!", as L would say (right Mom? ;)). I have an astronomy exam at 10 - my last exam! - and after that I'm going to go get my check from work and drive to Jacksonville. I'll deposit my check, drive home, hunt for the missing PIN for my credit card (LOL), and then I'll leave my car there and Mom will drive me to Orlando in the van. Two hours in the car, approximately three hours to wait at the airport, eight hours to fly to London, seven hours layover in London (I should really hop on a bus and go DO something), and then an hour to Amsterdam. And then two hours on the train. Sigh. 23 hours of being 'on the move'. Oh, well, I'll survive.

I have essentially no real plans (yet) - M and I are going to the Zwaluwhoeve on Monday, and I'm trying to set up time to see L and L and C and M and P, but beyond that: nothing. Two weeks suddenly seems like a very long time. Come on, you guys, read your e-mail and rescue me! :)

Guess I better get going now... there is, after all, still studying to be done *retch*.

(P.S. R's ankle is doing much better, by the way - thanks for the good thoughts, if anyone even bothered. However, we were leaving practice last night talking about it and I said, "Yeah, I was just gonna say - be very very careful on these stairs!" And right after I said that, she tried to step over a curb, missed, caught her toes on the edge and nearly fell flat on her face again. Am I a jinx, or is she just clumsy?)
