My professor handed back our first papers last night; I got an A. Hooray! Honestly, though, I worked fairly hard on the paper and would have been disappointed and a little surprised to see anything less. The prof also wrote some nice comments on it. Not everyone was so satisfied with the response to the… Continue reading
So I didn’t blog last week’s episode of Transamerican Love Story because I got distracted, and because I’m not always as motivated as I might like. But to catch you up: Calpernia had the guys host a dinner party for her and some friends; they were responsible for everything from set up to food prep… Continue reading TLS Recap: Episode 3 (with a nod to Ep 2)

Resolution: Really good drugs, a prescription… Continue reading bad karma backup: resolved
Well, I've been home with a sick child for the past two days, and I'm just resurfacing now in the real world. Poor Jacob has strep throat and was running a high fever (103!), so we spent two days on the couch, watching cartoons, eating ice pops, and generally being miserable. He's feeling better today,… Continue reading catching up
