1. Called David's Bridal again: they have my shoes, and once I persuade them that yes, I really do know what color I want them dyed, I can pick them up by the 10th, a whole week before the wedding! Not dead after all!
2. Got my Geology grade - an A-, which means I really did graduate *and* almost certainly didn't screw up my GPA to a noticeable extent this semester!
3. "Tea and Biscuits"
(neither of whom, I hear, is the same person as zortified
, but that might just be a vicious rumor). Mmmmm. Read the first part during my graduation on Saturday, having downloaded it onto my best friend's palm pilot (take *that* boring speakers! I'm ignoring you to read *porn*! so *very* emblematic of the last year of my college experience...) and the rest of the first arc today. And. Mmmmm. Big, big thanks to phaelstya
for the rec, you made my week.
4. I get to keep working at my fun job until the end of the week, so crushing poverty shouldn't set in until mid-May at least.
5. I told my boss about my plan to circumnavigate the Mitten and she (and her mom, who called while we were discussing the charms of Sault Ste. Marie) thinks it sounds great. So far everyone I've told about it thinks it sounds great (or at least mostly harmless), and the more people I tell the more likely I am to do it, so...
I think I'm going on a road trip this summer - specifically, mid-July. I blame Dar Williams (saw her do "Road Buddy" and "Iowa" in concert last week and have been wanting to just get in the car and keep going ever since) and Due South (so I'm thinking "I want to go to Chicago" and "I want to go to Canada"...). Start out driving from here to Chicago, then up the west coast of Lake Michigan through Green Bay, round into the Upper Peninsula to the Sault, and then cross over into Ontario and come down the east coast of Lake Huron (er... Georgian Bay?), probably crossing down to Niagara Falls so I can hit all five Great Lakes, and then back home. It's something like a thousand miles. I can stay in youth hostels in Chicago, Sault Ste. Marie, Barrie, and Niagara Falls. I think I can do this. I know I want to.
