intermission

i just found what i believe to be a single cat hair attached to the sleeve of my shirt.

and i haven’t been around a cat for awhile.

(note to self: laundry. it just might work.)

i wanted to send a december hello from california, where the temperatures are questionable, but the state’s charms never fail me. i flew out here from jersey on christmas day, which i initially thought of as meh because it’s christmas day – i should be toasty indoors with additional toastiness overflowing from the arrant fact of the birth of jesus christ (um, or something like that. i’m not actually christian). but instead i was breathed into the vast throngs of a public airport, where i was sad to abandon the prospect of the season’s first snowfall.

i did not anticipate for all three of new york’s major airports to be closed after christmas day.

so heck yeah, i sidelined that baby. score one to connie, and zero to force that might be trying to intrude on my winter vacation travels.

happy last week before the next year! enjoy the weather to the best of your ability, and a merry season to all!

i’m posting because i’m currently waiting for my friend to finish her studying so that we can hightail out of this building i’ve been hibernating in for nearly nine hours. i found this building on my way to hibernate in a library, but i thought the standalone, trailer ranch looking thing would be more conducive to my studying, so i walked to a door and tried to open it. in reality, the door was just locked, but i thought maybe it was just stuck (and i was freaking cold, yo, so i just wanted to open anything and get me some shelter going on), so i kept pulling and tinkering around when i finally noticed there was a classroom full of people inside. some who stared at me.

but that was nearly nine hours ago, when the sun was still out and about, and now i’m sitting here, waiting in anxiousness to brave the great cold once more and trek a few hundreds of yards (!) to return to the warm sanctum of my apartment.

and then i’m going to order domino’s.

don’t tell anyone, but during my nine hour period of studying, i’ve periodically just left a large picture of domino’s oven baked sandwiches on my computer screen.

and just stared.
