I emailed Jen yesterday morning, when she sent the email out to the listserv for IUSM telling everyone that the St. Vitus day dance was sold out. Just to make sure she'd gotten my check (We centre students are at a serious disadvantage for everything; we can't just toss a check in someone's mailbox and go. We have to pay postage and all.), which I assumed she had. Imagine my surprise and terror when I got home that evening and got a mail from her saying "I don't remember getting your check, when did you send it?" I emailed right back...Monday the 6th, I said, I mailed the check. We have our hotel reservations (At the OMNI) through Hotwire, so they're not refundable. But there's not all that much point to going to Indy if we don't have a dance to go to...except to see Chris and Laura, where we're staying tonight.
Got another e-mail from her today. My name's on the list (whew) so we've got tickets reserved. Tonight - staying with Chris and Laura and having a good time with their Cheese Fondue. Tomorrow night: St. Vitus dance. Tiny black dress and open bar and a taxi back to a nice hotel. Sunday: come home and realise that despite my lovely intentions, I haven't gotten any studying done. Monday: worry about studying.
So goes my proposed weekend.
Heard from a voice on the 'net that saw Ryken's graduation from Basic today. He looks good, sends greetings. I miss him.
