Rediscovering…this.

I’ve not had any dreams lately, at least none that I can remember. When I just wake up, and I know I had a really good dream, one full of wonders and fantasy and whatever else makes such things perhaps a bit better than real life, it slips away, much quicker than before, well before […]

Perforation

Maybe Sean is rubbing off on me. Today I feel like treating this forum like a diary. I wrote an entry, but then I deleted it for being overly confessional; I guess this replacement is kind of personal too, though, so maybe that’s just the way of it, today. :) Either way. I am pleased […]

Apartamento!

We moved in. I am so happy. We are lacking a few near-essentials, and short on others, and I don’t yet know an easy way to get some of this stuff (do I really have to walk for miles to buy toilet paper?) but I have a water-boiling pot, a supply of tea, a shower […]

Water

Sean’s stepmom showed me how to boil water (I’m so embarrassed) and now I have an unlimited supply of hot water, optionally for tea.� This is wonderful.� I’ve even gotten some studying done. We’ve now secured an apartment–well, secured, at least in some sense. The rent is already high and we’ve sort-of been warned that […]

Status update

Although it’s hard to say how many days we’ve been here, my LA clock says it’s almost 4:30 pm on Friday. I guess it’s Saturday morning, then. We’ve slept four nights in this apartment. I’m pleased to report that yesterday’s mosquito measures appear to have been successful. The vampires that have been biting us at […]

Good times

Even though we’re eager to get out of here, I’m having a good time in these last weeks in the States.� Sean and I have been seeing so many more movies than we used to (“No more movies.”� “Yes more movies.� So many more movies!”� cf party cat)–and they’ve treated us well.� District 9, Gamer, […]
