some contact with the world

Today I'll have some contact with the world outside of Jo and our apartment. Well, actually, I won't leave our wonderful homey home. A professor friend of Jo's and his wife are coming over for coffee and cookies later. It should be fun but all I want to do is work on my masters. I really like being a hermit sometimes- it is easier than dealing with people. Not only that, I dealt with so many (wonderful and not-so wonderful) people in NY and Maine that I all I want to do now is hang out with Jo and work. I finished my b-day shopping for Jo yesterday. it is VERY difficult- well impossible, really- to surprise her with anything. The first thing I got her in the city (someone yesterday inquired as to whether the city was chicago. No. THE city is new york) is a hand made devil puppet that she has wanted forever. So, she knows what that is because the lady who wrapped it put the store's sticker on the package. I also got her a toy robot at the store but I gave that to her already the night I came home. So, I got her a DVD yesterday. It is VERY difficult to find a DVD for someone who knows all movies and owns like a 1000 DVDs and videos. I think she'll like what I got her- if not she can exchange it. So, last night she bugged me and bugged me about what DVD it was. This is why she is bad with surprises. She must have asked me 50 questions. All I ended up telling her is that it doesn't begin with the letter "D" and the 3rd letter of the 1st word is "a". All her other questions I just laugh at because that throws her off. She gets very frustrated and it is almost more fun than giving her the present itself.
