February

Hello World,

Guess I haven't updated in a while...

I don't have much to report. Still living in my flood-damaged house, still unemployed, still just chillin' and keepin' it real (and still not really talking like that except when I want you all to think I am cool.)

I've been anti-social. Some people have gotten mad at me about this; others don't seem to have noticed; the rest probably miss me, but are busy with their own lives and know they'll see me again sooner or later. I've apologized to the angry ones and will make an effort with the rest soon...

It's not that I WANT to be anti-social. I would call people if I had something new to say, but, "Nope, still no job, still no carpet" certainly wouldn't brighten my day. I assume if other people have exciting/dramatic/interesting/whatever news, they'll contact me.

I guess I'm also just feeling lazy and apathetic. It's the middle of February in Minnesota - everything has that gray feeling to it. The snow is black, cars are white with dried up salt, there are puddles during the day and ice at night. Nothing is going on, nothing out of the ordinary happens...

That being said, this past weekend was fun. I was at Andy's till Saturday evening, being lazy, eating fish, and celebrating Valentine's Day. Saturday night I hung out with Jason - we went to Rocky Rococo's for pizza then went back to his house and watched Flight of the Conchords and the Wilco documentary (I Am Trying to Break Your Heart).

Last night I felt pukey-sick, but felt fine when I woke up today. I worked on some projects and then went to dinner at Jim's. He made pot roast for the first time - and he did a mighty fine job of it! Carrots, potatoes, dinner rolls, and milk - a real American meal! We ate it while watching an Ultimate Fighting highlights show of the "Greatest Knock-Outs" and Australian soccer.

I stopped at Dick Blick's on the way home (had to use my 40% off coupon) and then Joanne Etc because they were having their Presidents' Day Sale and I needed to get some fabric.

Now I'm home...feeling kinda pooped. Jim's meal was very nap-inducing. I think I'll get stuff cleaned up around here (I left my projects a mess when I left today) and then go to bed.

By the way, my gramma is 85 today and my cousin Payton turned 8 yesterday! I love them both very very very much!
