Sitting in the midst of potential food poisoning in a foreign country where you are expected to work is not my idea of a good time.
I am irritable and everything annoys me today. I just hope this is as bad as it gets.

Did I mention that I'm going to China? 'Cause I'm there right now.

This morning I said bye to my baby as he starts his adventures in Eindhoven, Netherlands. I'm trying hard not to think of his absence, but focusing on when I'll see him in October and all the fun we'll have when I visit. This helps a lot.
Last night we stayed at his parent's house and hung out with them, Jacq and Tayber, all downloading Skype and installing their new webcams that Doug bought for everyone. It's funny seeing three people sitting in a circle, chatting on Skype to each other. Goofs.

Peng (one of Dana's cats) had been missing for a few days, we figured he had sensed something and taken off but still didn't give up efforts to find him. Last night a large thunderstorm rolled through, so Dana and I decided to head back to his house to see if Peng had decided to come home. And sure enough, after calling his name for five minutes, Dana found a very wet, scared Penger under his neighbor's car. He was happy to get inside and see us and his brother Ninja, although Ninja wasn't the happiest about Peng's return. I'll miss those kitties, but I know their going to a good home.

I'm impressed with the tip of my left thumb's ability to regenerate itself.

Lifting a bottle to find more beverage than expected

The delightfully irritating squeal of a kettle

small crisis big crisis

I've discovered why one should properly eject an ipod... just pulling it out will freeze everything, corrupt your files, and if you do it enough times, let's say... three times, your ipod is toast and will have to be 'restored'. Such is the case with mine. I got as much music as I could off there, but not everything, including all the music I got off of other people's computers. It's been the backup drive for all my school, work, and some photos (some of last years Europe videos ended up a little corrupt). It's strange to think I have to clear EVERYTHING off. Like I said, I've saved what I could. This is my small crisis of this week. On the bright side, I've got a fresh new ipod!

The big crisis is, Dana's moving in less than a week. Bummer.

I'm very much excited about my new macbook!
