Sorry it's been quiet lately...

My obsession with Harry Potter (and anything remotely related to it) has risen to a frightening height. That's the main reason the blog-in-ator has been quiet lately.

The other reason is that I'm just plain lazy and couldn't think of anything to say.

Let's see... Hub leaves for MA on Sunday night. I'll probably do some practice MCAT's, paint the entire downstairs, and devote my time to Harry Potter once again.

Good thoughts for the people of Florida

To all readers:

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep the good people of Florida in your thoughts. Hurrican Dennis is about to touch down and do a quite a job. I have some good friends and ex-coworkers down there. The area hasn't even fully recovered from last year's hurricane season yet so if everyone out there could say an extra blessing, prayer, spell, wish, or whatever it is that you like to do, it would be much appreciated.

be well,
Ms. V

"School's out for summer!"

I'll only have a few days of luxury before I have to get back to work. Hub and I have a movie date tonight and then we're spending the day in Stowe tomorrow to celebrate our anniversary (two days early, but whatever). Sunday will involve a lot of housecleaning and on Tuesday I'll start taking one MCAT practice exam after another. I'm going to aim for 1 full exam each week. Wish me luck!

Actually, don't wish me luck yet. Save it for when I have to take the real thing.

My "fun time" will involve a lot of reading. Aside from finishing "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" (again), I have another 10 books lined up. :)

Studiously your's,
Ms. V

Sometimes it's fun to be superstitious

Well, I've just found the 9th lady bug in only a week and a half. They're all somehow able to make it inside and then hide in the oddest of places. Supposedly lady-bugs give you good luck when you find them. Since I'm a good little lady-bug lover, I gently put them back outside. It's the only kind of bug that I actually like. Any other insect in this house promptly gets squashed (the squashing is most often preceded by a lot of "Ewwww!!! Gross!! I hate god-damn bugs!")

I've also been finding a lot of pennies lying on the ground and even found a dime yesterday. I haven't been picking them up because I figure that with all of the lady-bugs I've been rescuing, I can let the good luck from the pennies pass on to other people. Actually, it's mostly because I already have enough change jingling around in my pocket.

In other news, I only have one day left of my class then I'm off for 7 long, beautiful weeks. They'll be spent studying for the MCAT and getting ahead for the fall semester. It occurred to me yesterday that in the spring, I'll have a full course load, the MCAT, a job, and my senior thesis to complete. Gee. I can't wait. (Please note the sarcasm).

Popular people today.

Hub and I are quite popular with delivery personnel today. We received four packages. Four. Cool, huh?

Actually, Fed Ex wouldn't drop their's off so we only technically got 3. The fourth is sitting at the Fed Ex building. The others were from UPS and the Post Office.

I love packages.

This is what I got. The other 2 were for Hub and I have no idea who the Fed Ex one was for.

Happy Retirement

Happy Retirement to Justice O'Connor.

I hope she enjoys it to the fullest. I also hope Bush doesn't go overboard with his nomination.
