i'm back, unpacked, launderized, and currently basking in air-conditioned comfort [thanks, paul!]... instead of languishing in the unpleasant mugginess to which i had initially returned home. yeesh.

i have some posts bouncing around in my head, but for now i leave you with odds and ends from my week:

*somewhere along the way my window starting acting up again. note: will call repair shop on monday and rip them a new one.

*friends from high school are having babies. oh my god.

*quote from my nephew, chase [in a very matter-of-fact tone]: "well, that's what boys do." this is in response to both my protests at chase's excessive playing in the dirt, and my father's protests at chase's eating spaghetti with his fingers.

*bj: "hey, mike... would you say heather's naive?"
  mike: *laughter*
  heather: "i'm not naive! ...i'm just learning."

*free stuff never felt so good: my old college roommate's husband was positively thrilled when he managed to snag a pizza. "i just scored a free pie! from bruno's...!" he was like a kid in a candy store. a greasy, cheesy candy store. apparently it's some sort of gift, as on their way in from chicago he convinced a random convenience store attendant into letting him have a pastry. "boy. sure looks like that donut's been there awhile. i can take it off your hands if you want..."

*i think ezekiel likes me. and he's such a cutie. i wish i had pictures.

*quote from another old college roommate [a music teacher]: "all the kids know i'm engaged. so now whenever i'm absent, the next day they're all like, 'did you get married yesterday?!' and i'm thinking, 'no. no, i did not. i did not get married on a tuesday.'"

*quote from joy's sister, frantically trying to write down phone numbers: "um, i think i got a 385- on that one..." this is while driving around looking for signs for apartments for rent, in the rain, at dusk.

i know there are plenty more tidbits, but hey. it's almost midnight. cut me some slack. all in all, Unemployment Vacation 2005 did not contain as much relaxation and alone time as i had expected it would... but it was certainly a good time nonetheless.
