i'm putting it up. let the celebration begin. i have decided, i am definitely going to write something about my upcoming trip to ireland. maybe i'll even have pictures. scott has offered to loan me a tiny tape recorder of sorts; even if i don't use that, i can at least take notes with good ol' pen&paper (though my handwriting has gotten atrocious).
other than that, i went to bd's last night with micah, nick and jason (whom i now know), much to andy's disappointment (who is appparently a HUGE fan of mongolian barbecue, but had already eaten). nick actually ate something that wasn't pizza or a sandwich. it was interesting. also, we had coffee, which somehow put me to sleep. i will never understand it.
tonight i pretended to clean and thought about packing. i got as far as emptying my backpack when i realized that i would need to use everything i planned on putting in there between now and saturday. maybe i'll just make a list; that should suppress some of the excitement.
in other news, my box/table is sagging in the middle. the pride and joy of my life is nearing its end; maybe i should reinforce it.
