just got home from the jefferson silent auction and concert thingie--it was cool and fun but kinda sad because i wasn't a part of it...which was weird. but i still got to see everyone and stuff...i swear i must have hugged about a hundred tj-ers and caught up on their lives and everything. that was way great...it all really made me feel at home. and i got my camera back from erica--can't wait to see what craziness she's captured on that roll of film! in case you kids are wondering, dr. b's looking well and so is everyone else...and i saw the mommies rachlin and carter, too...bonnie's bday was yesterday, so we sang to her! yay mama c! :) hmm...i think that's it. enough online time for today. i think i'm going to go get some ice cream.

I'M HOME! :) my parents and sister and brother and puppy are all here and it's so nice being able to come through the front door without swiping my ID to prove i belong inside. anyway, to my chicago girls--sorry i couldn't party with you this weekend, you know i would have in a heartbeat if i could...and to my w&m pals, i hope you all have fun in key west and wherever else you other folks are going...i'll be here the whole darn week if you ever get up the energy and funds to call long-distance (though i may not be in the mood to talk between monday at 9am and who knows how long after that...) my number here is 703.455.6010...ha, right. like any of you would actually call me.

i talked to the mom...and things aren't looking up. :o/ oops. i guess my spring break will be spent convincing her of my ability to make responsible housing decisions.

there's a really sad owl outside my window and i want to help it but don't really know how to...it's crying a lot, poor thing. and i haven't talked to my mom yet about the house...nobody was home when i called. i was such a slacker today i feel terrible! i skipped all my classes and didn't do any of my work--i'm not even sure how i spent the day to be completely honest, but it seemed like i had too much to do to go to class...but somehow i didn't do any of it. ugh.

eek! we signed the lease and paid the deposit! we have a HOUSE! two stories, our own little yard, just a few blocks from campus...ahhhh! now i just have to tell my mom that i'm living off campus...

i just got an email from my mom responding to my inquiry about what time on monday i'm getting my teethies out: "9:00 am so that your entire day can be ruined. Love, Mom XXXOOO"...aw, how sweet.

i think i should update all of you on my relationship with caroline, as many of you have not been around to witness the development of our love for one another. here are the games we like to play: solitaire, uno, making up dances to "good" music, seducing each other, listening to songs on repeat until the cows come home, decorating our room (and getting yelled at for our fire hazards), taking out the recycling in the early morn, getting mad and the trash truck when it sings to us at the crack of dawn, pretending we sing well, eating a lot, watching tlc (esp. trading spaces!), comparing and contrasting our fat and playing with it, sleeping nakey, getting awards for our good decisions and funny quotes, requiring that everyone who enters our room tells us their favorite decoration and fully understands the concept of a ceiling scraper, reciting song lyrics interpretively while pretending to be in love, pole dancing, naked serenading, doing people, procrastinating like crazy, making inanimate objects talk and dance, talking online even though there are less than ten feet between us, planning outfits ahead of time, being pregnant, truth-or-dare jenga, lesbian sex, eating weekend brunches (the best meal on campus), adding -y to everything we say, quoting shrek, making weird gestures at strangers, laughing a lot, being friends, and so much more! that's enough, i think. but trust me, there are others. afterall, there are no coffee breaks in the being-a-wild-f3u-angel business...only dried apricot and birthday cake breaks.

benji brought a balloon fishing pole and fish to dinner today. he got it at the carnival this afternoon and he hit me with it. it was funny and i laughed.

proof that when it rains it pours: there's a house on lafayette with our names on it, too! we don't know prices or anything for that one yet, but still--and to think we were getting pretty worried that we'd be homeless girls...on a separate note, tutoring was g-r-e-a-t today. my kids have come along so much and i love them times infinity! :)

we finally got our first bit of snow lasting more than 5 seconds! (this time it lasted a whole hour and then some...) of course, the ground is just wet...no accumulation, but i think you learn to love what little you can get when you live in williamsburg. also! this is *big news*, so get ready. i called the realtor back, and i think we may finally have a place to live next year! it's a 2 bedroom/2 bath right across from the law school, which is "walking distance" (it'll have to be) and the closest to campus i think we can possibly get this late in the game. we'll probably feel like one of those barrett girls, but hey, at least there will be a roof over our heads! i still haven't talked to either of my roommates about it yet, though...i guess that would probably be a good place to start. i'll be sure to keep you posted, as i know you must be on the edge of your seat in anticipation.

our network is being reeeeeeeaaaaaaaally slow...but i added comments, so write to me.

okay, so thuy and her entourage got me interested in this. i probably won't update it nearly as much as i should, but just getting the site up was a big enough step for today. :) xoxoxo

there is no way to describe this incredible site using mere words.
