This 'n' that

I just got a lovely phone call from Emma. Crying and unreasonable. She made dinner for her and her father. And then slathered it in expired mayonnaise. And because she is the way she is - she can't reason. She can't laugh at her mistakes. She flies off the handle. And then she calls my mom. I just happened to pick up the phone.

I haven't mentioned it. But her mom, my aunt Marie, is having her leg amputated below the knee on Tuesday.

My dad spilled gas all over the back of Meg's car. Where her gym bag, now soaked in gasoline, was sitting. I've spent the last few hours trying to rescue what I can. It was a Googlefest of remedies. Baking soda. Vinegar. Vanilla extract. Fabreeze. Coke. Prayer. Patience. We'll see.

Finished a project for school this afternoon. Feels good to get that off of my shoulders. Now on to the next project. An assignment due on Monday at midnight. A computer certification exam on Thursday. Another project due by Friday at midnight.

The weather today is absolutely amazing.

My Michigan football team is absolutely embarrassing.

I have been thinking about The Athlete a lot in the past few days.

Ashley left for her epic road trip this morning. I'm crossing my finger. I just want her to have a good time. Anything beyond that is a bonus, right?

Seriously considering the idea of going to Chicago for New Years Eve.

Have hockey tonight.

And last night, I had a dream that Anna and I lived in a house on a lake. With America Ferrera.
