grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

let it snow

We might not have had a white christmas here in Maine, but today we have lots of snow. I haven't blogged as much as I thought I would from Maine. It took me a couple days to really unwind when I got here but now I have been doing nothing else but drinking, eating and sleeping. So, here is a snapshot of the past few days:
  • 4: the number of trips made to walmart with various people who needed last minute christmas gifts (walmart is the only store in the area, unfortunately)
  • 30+: the number of W'04 stickers seen on cars/trucks/suvs
  • 3: the number of trips in one day (12/24) made to Bookland, the bookstore I used to work at in HS
  • 1 bottle of very good tequila shared with my brother over the 2 nights he was here
  • 1 game of the Simpson's Clue played with the family
  • 4+: glasses of Bailey's sipped while watching movies and playing Clue
  • 5+: the number of conversations with people my parents know and I barely remember
  • 15: the number of times my fafa (grandfather) told me he was proud of me for getting an masters degree
  • 4: the number of adults (dad, maryann, donald and I) squished together on the couch christmas eve for the traditional reading of "the night before christmas"
  • 2: the number of scarves knit (1 for dad and 1 for mom)
  • 1 hat knit (sister)
  • 1 trip to Halcyon Yarns to spend a chirstmas gift certificate
  • 4: the number of skeins of Noro Big Kureyon purchased at Halcyon for 64 dollars
  • 3: the number of stockings stuffed by my mother who will stuff stockings for us until I am at least 40
  • 10+: the number of hours spent looking up ancesters online
  • Kent, England: where my mother's side of the family comes from
  • 10+: the number of hours spent playing Sim City with sister
I promise that I will post pictures soon!
