Much has happened in the past week. For starters, I sort of moved. My belongings have shifted about the equivalent of one city block, from my on-campus dorm to my on-campus apartment. Of all my moves in the past two years (three…count ’em), this was by far the wimpiest, so of course it’s the only time I had help from my parents. My dad came up and carried most of the heavy boxes (I did not feel bad for him). We had some great conversations in what I like to call “Pete-Speak.” What my dad thinks, says, and means are three unconnected things resulting in a garbled mess of good intentions. An almost verbatim example of this would be: “Say – that building – the old one – why were you – get the keys – you came out of?” This means, of course, ‘Did you pick up your keys from that old building next to your dorm?” Like Yoda with a Minnesotan accent.
Anyway, I’m all moved in to my apartment and I love it. Heather is my roommate, so of course Tony lives there too. This is okay, provided he cleans up after his pizza like I asked him to. Grr, Tony. Grr.
And I’m back at the office, which should explain the lengthy update on basically nothing. I have more to say, but it’s nine minutes ’til quittin’ time, so I guess I’ll have to leave you all in suspense.
