Cancellations & Canned Food.
September 19, 2008 § 2 Comments
This marks the end of a long, eventful & still somehow tremendously boring week. Classes should resume as normal on Monday; meanwhile, a long weekend awaits, full of continued house-bound fun & curfews.
A. & I will probably not be making any attempt to drive to Austin for the Ani Difranco concert we both have tickets for, because my car will not be able to make it into a body shop until there are body shops with electricity to be found anywhere in the area, & I don’t want to stress the poor machine in the meantime. Also, all signs point to Don’t Make Any Sudden Moves. So, we’re staying.
Yesterday, A., B., C. (no kidding!) & I went to W.’s to watch Mystery Science Theatre 3000 after a nice social afternoon at Brazil, a coffee house on Westheimer. A group of MFA/Ph.D. folks showed up for that, & compared notes about electricity & class cancellations & bad roommate experiences of yore. At W.’s later, laughing & beer & chipotle kettle chips & discussion of mechanics & workshop & style. A nice night, & we were, of course, home before curfew.
This morning has been spent on reading, finances, & an episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, a show I’ll admit to only halfway enjoying, & yet I still find it somehow strangely compelling. I plan to spend the rest of the day watching this, instead.
There’s always money in the banana stand.
