What exciting news do I have to report today?
Sigh…not much! But my laptop is ready to pick up at Costco, which I’ll do Friday. Also, I got the “fuzzy socks” I ordered from Amazon today. My feet are pretty achy after today’s shift, so I wasted no time putting one of the pairs on…
These are “knee socks” on a normal sized human female, but are generous crew length socks on me! If I want women’s knee socks to fit me like knee socks, I have to seek out “over the knee” socks (which go to my knees). I have a couple of pairs of such socks (besides men’s soccer socks, which don’t always go up to my knees either) #tallwomanproblems
I *was* going to meet Kim for music trivia tonight, but I’m just too beat. She’s not the first person I’ve bailed on doing something with over “the holidays.” I need some time off (more about that in a bit).
My husband and I are talking about doing an overnight trip to Mt. Pleasant when I have my time off after New Year’s. We’re both Central Michigan grads, so it will be like our own little “homecoming.” Too bad neither of us can, as the Barenaked Ladies song says, “(break) into our old apartment(s).” Why? Because his and my old apartment buildings have since been demolished (even one of his old residence halls was torn down).
All that remains is the apartment we shared my last year at CMU. If that bulding still stands? Uh, meh…we won’t be breaking in! But we can reminisce over some drinks at The Bird (a downtown bar).
So many memories…cutting through “Rape Forest” while walking to classes, barnwood on the living room walls, hauling my 45 pound Schwinn ten speed up a flight of stairs, John setting a small fire in the microwave when he put a foil wrapped Arby’s sammich in there, and the first and last time I ever had Captain Morgan spiced rum (bleah)!
There’s a time and place for everything and it’s called college!
