music: "Cloudy Now" by Blackfield
Friday was Kalan and me's five-month anniversary, so we went to Carraba's for dinner last night. I had chicken marsala, and he had some sort of pasta. It was really good; a nice last big meal before I hop on to the healthy eating again when school starts up. Kalan also surprised me with a beautiful ornamental shortsword with an embroidered sheath and a small vial of Medieval Rose oil before we went to dinner. He told me when he found the sword, it reminded him of me. Aww, so sweet! Thank you so much, Kalan!
Unfortunately, he couldn't stay at the apartment after dinner because I still have that damn summer work to finish. I managed to get all the quotations done, and I have nearly all the information for the book cards. When Kalan and I stopped by Wal-Mart so I could buy some index cards, we found that all the 4X6 lined index cards had been completely sold out--the only kind of index cards that were sold out. I'm going to have to get Mom to buy some tomorrow at Office Depot or something, because that worries me a little bit.
Hair update! I got my hair died a dark brown with blond patches in it on Thursday; believe me, it looks much better than it sounds. I absolutely love it! My hair is much shorter and spikier too, so it's really easy to deal with. I'll try to get a picture up a-sap. Thursday was my last official day of working at Stacey's, so Stacey, Isaac, and I went to Applebee's for lunch to celebrate. I'm still going to work on the Saturday's that Stacey is working, and I'm going to see if I can work some days after school, too. Man, I'm going to miss that job so much. Damn you school!
Speaking of which, I have a rather agreeable schedule this year, thank goodness. And they didn't screw over my French classes this time, either! I left my schedule in Mary's car, so I don't quite remember the order the classes go in, but I know the classes themselves: Advanced Women's Chorus with Mrs. Vinson, AP Literature with Mrs. Portwood, AP Government with Mr. Broda, Humanities with Mr. Cypert, Zoology with Coach Oliver, French IV with Mrs. Chuites, AP French also with Mrs. Chuites, and Advanced Trigonometry with Coach Ingram. I like everything about my schedule except for Zoology, which I got stuck with because Geology wouldn't work in. That's not really so bad though, since the rest of the schedule is perfect, and the teacher is a coach, so I can't imagine it would be too difficult. I'm not looking forward to slicing open cats, though.
Peter's coming tonight! He'll be staying with us for the next few days, so that will be fun. We'll get to show him Snowboard Kids and my hair and all that other fun stuff. Lauren and I cleaned up a good amount of the apartment, so we should be ready for him when he comes. He told Lauren on the phone that he's going to make sure we'll go to bed at a decent time tonight so we'll be ready for school tomorrow. "I'll be like a Nanny!" he said.
God, tomorrow--why tomorrow . . . ?
If you're wondering about the title, that was an exact quote that my character said to a detective in "The Sims: Bustin' Out" for the GBA. I love that game; it's so full of blatant innuendo.
