(unlikely dreams)

woensdag 16 november 2005

It's going to be an interesting week.

A.) Dia's boyfriend has just arrived and is going to be living with us until Monday. I have made it abundantly clear that a hair elastic placed around the doorknob will be 'the signal' and that it must be religiously utilized. We'll see how it works.

B.) One week from today is the theater release of Harry Potter IV in the Netherlands, and, thanks to Shady & Co., I already have a ticket. Shady, you rule.

C.) One week from tomorrow, however, is my linguistics presentation. At 8:45 in the morning, meaning it must be completed LONG before we waltz out the door to the Wednesday night movie. I've done some preliminary research, but I definitely don't have enough to talk about for half an hour, and what I do have is (mostly) not even remotely linguistic in nature, but just general medical background on Williams. Better get started.

D.) The Jags play the Titans on Sunday. The Titans are sucking this season - they're something like 2 and 6 - but that used to be a HUGE rivalry and you can bet the Jags will remember. Eat 'em up, boys.

E.) My high school best friend Elise is getting PRK on Tuesday! So she's going to join my seeing-without-lenses club! Woohoo!

F.) Marijt lent me another book, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, which is supposed to be great. New reading material! Yippee! Marijt, you rule too.

Guess that's all the cool stuff for the moment.

Exactly 5 weeks till I go home.
