We got Internet. (I'll spare you the saga of HOW we got it, saying only that there was absolutely no filter on the line, and we would have been up and running a week ago if only the four Cox employees I talked to had known what they were doing.)
We got cable. (See above.)
My scholarships came in. (This is a double victory, because not only did I get money, but I got my money without all the delays and problems that being abroad brought me last time.)
I found out we're taking Anna's parents' brand-new Suburban to Ohio tomorrow instead of their old van. (The Suburban, aside from being newer and safer, has a DVD player. Rock on.)
I got a letter from my sister, containing a black square "F THE PRESIDENT" bumper sticker (in mimicry of those "W THE PRESIDENT" ones).
I got a hundred percent on my first Latin and French quizzes.
I watched the Sixteen Candles DVD (that I scored yesterday for $6.50 at Target).
Anna complimented me at practice, "You are gonna take all kinds of time off that 50 free this weekend!"
I 'took care of business' - signed up for the River Run, mailed my UNC writing sample, sent the $675 check to Tampa Bay, paid my January rent, and finally attempted (without immediate success) to obtain the $55 online course code for French.
And, some long-withheld news: I got my Channel tide. Number-one slot, August 6-12, 2007. Be there or be square.
