I don't know why I haven't felt like updating lately. I had a really good visit home. I only gained 5 pounds this time! I got to see L and K and some others, went to a post-wedding dinner, and I really like everyone in New Orleans. My brother and I played Full Auto, which we discovered at the bottom of a drawer. It was basically a racing a game where you shoot the other cars. That's pretty logical.

Today was my first day at work. It went very well. I like my boss. The coworkers seem passionate about what they do, and were slightly devastated when their bill wasn't passed in the last day of (state congressional) session today. Now I can be one of those LBJers that talks about "session!"

While home, I didn't read as much as I hoped I would. I did watch some movies, but not even a lot of those. Today I found out that one of my medications may cause drowsiness, which is a relief because I sleep far more than is normal.

I listened to some lectures on classical mythology, and it was really great. I highly recommend. The House of Atreus was effed. up.

I am very flattered by Sirena's award, but can't think of enough ways I'm awesome, so will decline the tag.

What do you mean you can't think of 7 awesome things. Okay,then, I'll help:
1. You're beautiful but you can't say that one becauses
2. You're modest
3. You're a really good writer
4. People cherish your thank you notes (and often call me to read them to me)
5. You've travelled all over the world including to third world countries and often by yourself
6. In spite of being an introvert, you've reached out to people in those countries whom you often barely knew to maximize your experience
7. You're able to give criticism that is constructive and not offensive
8. You work hard at staying healthy, mentally and physically, even if it's the last thing you feel like doing
9.You're very measured in your judgments
10. You're close to your family
and stay in touch with your grandparents and give us all someone to love unconditionally
11. You bought your own condo and decorated it on an extreme budget and it's approaching perfectamundo
12. You speak Russian
13. You love animals

Anonymous is right! You are awesome in many more than seven ways.
