Very funny

Unable to resist the urge to check our registries, Tim and I discovered yesterday that the first item has been bought! Funnily enough, it is just a scale from Target. For whatever reason, this struck us as hilarious.

My sister and brother-in-law are flying in today! I can't wait to see them. Tim and I were busy-busy yesterday running around our respective apartments and getting them ready. I don't know why, but I love cleaning my apartment for guests. I think it's the part of cleaning I inherited from Mom. It's like putting on a show! (Conceited.)

This weekend, Tim and I are going to try to get out to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, where they have the Faberge collection! It's extra credit for my Russian History class, and I think it'll be awesome. My teacher claims that Houston gets cool exhibits that normal only go to New York and London and other big places because we are an oil-rich town and other countries, especially Russia, want to be our buddies. Either way, cool for us!

I'm looking forward to the end of the semester with a passion. Only three more papers to write, and two more finals! Hooray!

Very truly yours,

National Novel Writing Month

Hooray! It's November and I'm writing my novel. I have over seven thousand words, and I haven't started a single one of the five papers I have to write for school this month! ALRIGHT! Right on schedule.

I moved from the idea of an informal collection of essays and fiction short stories of the time period, including the always easy to churn out fake poetry to writing a history text from the year 2080. How did this happen? I may move back to the more informal premise. But writing a text book from the future is fun! Oh well.

Wish me luck!

Very truly yours,
