Seth and Steve 'round Christmas

Just playing a little catch-up now. It’s always tough for me to write regularly when I’m home, especially when I have excuses personified by the likes of Seth, Britnee, Beth&Steve, Tony&Kate, James&Andrea, and everyone else in my big family. They’re great excuses for not ...

Now it’s finally feeling (and

Now it’s finally feeling (and looking) like the semester’s about over. I’ve got my big stack of gifts, an overflowing clothes basket, hangables hanging, paintings drying, everything else neatly arranged for when I come back — whenever that will be. I still don’t feel ready, though. It ...

stats all folks!

I had my first of four finals this evening — my dreaded Statistics exam. It was (and always has been) my most feared test and so I spent a few hours studying last night and another one or two today — not exactly cramming, per se, but lets just say I doubled ...

pamper your rice, too

I wish Chinese take-out came in smaller portions. I was really excited about getting to eat Chinese food tonight — my goal has been to eat all of my food in the house before Christmas break and I’ve see no problem with that. So I decided to treat my lazy ...

I did much of my Christmas shopping this weekend and yesterday — completely online. I’m still a sucker for shopping the old fashioned way, so I’ve left a few items to find in Kansas City on the Saturday after the Neil Diamond Concert (the 21st). But as that’s ...

what’s YOUR elf name?

caged and contorted

Well, after a series of text-lacking ramblings, I figured I’d better say something.

I got home from classes yesterday to Bryan smiling big and asking: “Have you eaten lunch yet?”

Nope.”

Well, we’re into single digits now: just 9 more days of class until finals week and the end of the semester. I love this time of the semester, not just because I can sense the long winter break or the end of some crappy classes, but because of the ...

Here’s our Christmas tree in our living room. I cut it down from my backyard yesterday, stuffed it in my trunk, and then set it up last night. It’s purdy and smells good too.
