It's that time again! Time for me to blog! I just know that you are shaking with barely suppressed excitement.
Guess what today was? Hmm? You cannot guess? You do not know?? Then you do not deserve to be told. Tsk.
My mother sent me a little plant arrangement today. It's got cacti and succulents. I put it in the window, where hopefully it will get lots of sun. I like having living things in the dorm room. Yes, it's not a cat, and it isn't my bamboo from home, but it's something.
I think I should name all the various cacti. I'm open to name suggestions.
She also sent me one of those tins o' goodies from the Popcorn Factory. It is filled to the brim with snacking delights. But now my room has a glut of cookies, because this tin came with cookies, and my Bubbie gave me cookies yesterday, and Brynn got two tins full of cookies from home today. And I think we have Oreos in the fridge. So if you're in the area and you desire cookies, you know where to go.
I went out to dinner with my Bubbie yesterday. It was very nice. We went to a fancy Italian restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor. And she brought me cookies and bottles of Vernor's for the dorm. For all those in New England, Vernor's is sort of like ginger ale, but not really. It's an acquired taste. I'll try to bring some back for December break so that you may all experience it.
Tonight Pam and Shelby took me out to dinner, which was uncommonly nice of them, especially since I hadn't even mentioned what today is. Which you ought to know. Anywho. There's a board thing for our hall, but I didn't think that anyone actually looked at it.
We had dinner at this neat little restaurant/café thing. They have couches and good music, and they serve pizzas and sandwiches and salads and such. Oh, and some very nice coffee drinks. It was a delectable dinner.
Then I came back to the dorm to do homework. Hurray for homework.
Ah, I know I kept on saying that I'd get a picture of my dorm for you all to see. Well, I have done it. Let no one say that I am not as good as my word. It's not a particularly good picture, but it ought to give you the general idea of Mosher Jordan.
that there is mosher jordan. otherwise known as my dorm.
Someone... I think it was Jess, said that they somehow had pictured a Michigan dorm as not looking like that. People tend to expect these big, modern structures, or these giant utilitarian highrises. But nope, that there is my dorm. And Stockwell, next door, looks even more Tudor. There are a lot of really neat buildings on campus that, if you don't know the area, you might be surprised to see at a school like UMich. Perchance I shall take pictures of them at some point, to wow and amaze you.
If you would like to see an inexplicable animation involving badgers (and someone saying 'badger badger badger' over and over again in a tuneful manner), perhaps you ought to check out Weebl's Badgers. Yes. Strange, yet compelling.
Not much else that needs saying. This, then, shall be a short blog. A rarity these days. Enjoy it while you can.
