Not that anyone reads this anymore anyway. Ah well.

I'm back home again. I start community college in exactly seven days. Seven daaaaaaayssssssssssssss. Sorry. Couldn't resist.
Apologies to my roommate for my rude behavior this morning. I will make it up to you somehow... have I told you lately how wonderful your hair is?

While I was coming back to the hotel with another girl on the trip, we saw some skinny white guy get punched in the face by a big burly Mexican who told the skinny white guy "You better have my money by Tuesday!"
I almost got thrown out of an Irish pub twice, as well as a sports bar. You see, in Canada the legal age is 19 and I look 14 at most. Luckily I had ID to prove that I was indeed 19.
I ordered my first mixed drink!
It was a pretty fun trip, although I don't see why Americans are supposed to be the rude ones. Canadians aren't any better.

I love flying.
Having said that, I found a computer in the Seattle La Quinta hotel and am using it. Obviously.
To the college crew! I miss everyone lots and if you want postcards send me your addresses via email. I picked them up for you all but I can't find the addresses! I have also bought you many souvenirs and I hope you like them.
San Francisco is my favorite place on Earth. Seattle... not so much. We went to the Space Needle, but that is pretty much all there is for us to do. I'd rather live in Seattle than SF but for tourists SF is much better.
I've had some great food and D and I have pretty much shared everything cause portions are so large. Today for lunch we shared grilled salmon. It was amazing.
All in all we're having a fantastic time! Tomorrow we leave for Victoria and Sunday we leave for Vancouver. I'll probably be back late on... Wednesday I think.
See you then!
PS: I love the new timezone.

Plane Rules for my Flying Companion:
- No talking; it shakes the plane.
- No poking; it tilts the plane
- No talking, laughing, or heavy breathing; it might create turbulence.
I've never been on a plane before, can you tell?
I hope they don't wear tops on the west coast.

And as most of you know, I will soon be leaving for San Francisco, Seattle, Victoria, and Vancouver for ten days of fun, fun, fun with Deidre! Anyone want me to bring them back anything? I'm incredibly excited about it.

Me: Is there anything anything I can do to look older? I'd love to look at least 16.
Saleperson: You're 16?
Me: No, I'm 19. But I'm being realistic.
She blinked at me, then gave me the usual spiel about how I'll be SO GLAD when I'm older that I look so young and yadda yadda yadda. Yeah, ok. I could be dead by then. Give me something I can use today. I'm tired of getting handed the children's menu when I go out to eat with my mother. (Funny how I never get handed the children's menu in Staunton...)
I did get things straightened out at TCC. Amazing how two hours spent on the phone and half a dozen emails traded resolved nothing, but when I go down there in person everything is resolved in under half an hour. So now I'm signed up for three classes during the summer.
And I got a new cell phone. Which is pretty cool. My mother ended up giving financial advice to the salesperson whose only dream (apparently) is to go to college.
Salesperson: I do this and earn $7 an hour.Sometimes I get commission.
Mother: I'm civil service. I make a little more than that.
Me: I'm a college student. I pay thirty thousand to find myself.
Salesperson: You go to college? Wow! I thought you were in highschool at the most!
It's a curse, I tell you. A curse.

Take that, Phipps. I'm catching up to you.

It was odd. Kind of ticked me off a little. Not the kind of ticked off that precipitates bashing their car windows in with a baseball bat, but the kind of ticked off that makes me feel like a kindergartener who has just had their favorite crayon stolen.
It was just really odd.

There aren't seven of me, and I'm not a penguin either. I'm a little angry, but not too much.
One day I plan to actually put content here.
