I went into work this morning expecting to work a seven hour shift. I left thirteen and a half hours later. OW OW OW.

As a Central Pennsylvanian, I have a pesky habit of dropping "to be" from my sentences. A popular example of this is, instead of saying "The car needs to be washed" I would say, "The car needs washed".

I am now finding that the same speech fault translates quite nicely to my writing. Reading over my paper draft, I found thirty two incidents of dropping the "to be". My paper is now a full page longer. Thanks, grammar!

I am. So. Cold. It's already down to 32 and it's only 6pm. I wish we had heat. The end.

Here´s the latest.

My computer died hard a week and a half ago, and now I have a shiny new one. It´s adorable. Hooray. Firefox let's me download a Spanish online dictionary, so now I am unstoppable with my online homework. Take that!

I started serving at VQ which makes me hurt, a lot. I worked from 8am-3pm this morning and I'm on a brief break which ends in about fifteen minutes. Damn. So instead of trying to crank out another round of web homework, I'll post to livejournal, because I'm a little bit stupid. Oh well.

I'll be in Philadelphia next weekend, and I cannot wait.

Second year in Oregon:

It's very interesting to stand on my porch and watch it rain. I now know that it's not going to pass in a few hours. It will be some degree of damp for the next six months. I remember dry days, I think, but I'm not sure if they are from May or November.

I wonder if it is entirely selfish of me to up and transfer schools AGAIN. Why don't I just retrieve a degree from PSU in linguistics and then go to a much more refined school for my graduate work. It's not like PSU will have me do a thesis. Re-evaluating my entire plan. I still hold hope that one day, my license will carry a flattering picture of myself.

I got promoted to server at VQ. Meaning that, five shifts a week, I host, but now I have two shifts of serving, increasing as needed. It makes me want to stay. I like this job, I like it a lot.

The laundromat permanently pressed wrinkles into all of my skirts last week. I now am going to wash my clothes at home and pray that they hang dry in time. And go shopping after work tomorrow and hopefully acquire some wrinkle-free skirts for a song. Plus buy a button down work shirt and some shoes that don't have such a fancy for suctioning water up into them.

Two weeks until Philadelphia. My Christmas present will be many meals and some new clothes. I am excited (and well aware that Christmas is much further off, but damnit- this is just how my family does things).

I think I may start washing my hair more than once a week. I'll let you know how that goes.

fun things to hear at the dentist:

"oh, did i hit a nerve? when that happened to me i almost shit myself"
(after gauze has mysteriously been packed into my mouth, removed, and repacked for a few minutes when the professor finally wanders over)"oh, i see you've got some hemorrhaging going on. you know, when you take the impression, that's just going to start up again."
