sga - sparktober

Yay yay YAY!!! :)


Mad livejournaly commencement props to greywords, relevance, noradannan, pirateelmo, and of course, my darling darling saidshe. When you paused before going through the Van Wickle gates, Bee, I had a very superstitious moment of "oh my God, something is going to go horribly wrong. The actual *ground* of Brown University will reach up and grab you by the ankles to keep you here!" But NO! You PREVAILED!!!

So much love and celebration and wishes of future awesomeness.

(And the most gorgeous commencement day of all time. Seriously, someone in the Brown Alumni Office sold their soul to hold off the storm forecasts this weekend. Either that or the universe felt bad about last year.)

-- Little Red, who is SUCH a fan of the Kappa commencement blue and yellow balloons! :)

sga - sparktober

clean the fridge to free your *soul*

*waves goodbye to Pawtucket House of Couch*

Well, *will* wave goodbye once all my stuff's in the car, but that requires unhooking my computer.

I have cleaned this apartment within an inch of its life, and it looks all shiny and new now. With the exception of maybe an hour late last night when I was all but I started this a week ago why the crap is it still not done!? Oh, because I have *mono* and because it takes me ass-long to do things, (shout-out to besydtammy for giving me motivational cookies, of a sort) I really enjoyed myself doing it, too. I don't think of myself as an exceptionally compulsive person, but there's something really satisfying about the process of deep-cleaning (less so with the ordinary spot-cleaning, but that too). In a weird way, it reminds me of distance swimming or highway driving -- it's a very solitary, methodical activity, and it's most enjoyable if you don't think beyond the next lap or venetian blind or recognizable landmark.

Worried this makes me a *total* nutball, I mentioned this to my parents. My mother was all: "OOOOH! I'm like that TOO!" and my dad was all "Oy. Another one." So, my insanity is a learned behaviour. Sweet :)

But yay. Pretty apartment. *pets Pawtucket House of Couch* And, security-deposit-ness, too, I hope :)

(also, keenween? Did you get my email about Cox? Er, I suppose if you don't have 'net access at all, since I still have your cable modem, you wouldn't have. I'll call you tomorrow unless you say otherwise...)

-- Little Red, who will seriously miss the wonder that is cable internet
