So my dad picked me up from Newark, and we drove to Philly and picked my mom up from the hospital, and my dad got both his girls back in the house on the same day. Hurrah! The holidays were subsequently pretty low-key, though I made Christmas dinner, which was awesome. I went to the Onas reunion briefly, to a Rufus Wainwright concert in Atlantic City with Emma, and to the CTY New Year's Reunion, all of which were awesome. I hung out with some cool people, saw some cool movies*, made some cool food (e.g. bagels!), read some cool books, and generally had a cool, relaxing time. Honestly, I wasn't really pumped about coming back to Dublin.
But back I am, since Saturday, and still a bit jet-lagged. My stuff is back in place, I have food once more, three new roommates are here...and I've barely left the house. I had a lousy night of warped circadian rhythms last night that led to me missing the first day of classes, but c'est la vie. I've already made sure my alarm is properly set and turned on for tomorrow, so it won't happen again. Tonight there's some birthday happening, to which I will bring Tastykake cupcakes for the birthday boy(s?), though sadly without candles. Hopefully I've solved my phone problems (it has a habit of not working for a period, or restarting, or just cutting me off) so people will be able to contact me with more opportunities to leave the house. So YEAH. Stuff. Time for dinner.
*No matter what anyone tries to say, I Am Legend is a ZOMBIE MOVIE. ZOM. BIE. Goddamn.
