State of the Foresthouse: Cold; Static-y - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...

State of the Foresthouse: Cold; Static-y
Arrived safely at J's after successfully NOT missing the train, even after having a dream that I was on the phone with J telling him I'd missed it. Take THAT, Supernatural-style premonitions. Hah! J met me in Penn Station, which was good, because although I do have a decent sense of direction, I hadn't bothered to look up how to get to his place or anything. Said place is very chic but COLD. Is because J is Male and therefore has own internal heating system, whereas I, being Female, mostly generate heat by wrapping self in blankets and hoping. Drawback of cold (other than, you know, it being cold) is that hair has decided static is In now, and is driving me crazy. Must either get another haircut or decide once and for all to grow it back to manageable ponytail length. Hrm. Dilemma. Plus side of cold is that "cold" mood theme picture makes me laugh. Silver lining!

Am now amusing self on J's computer (which has a monitor the size of Detroit) while he is out for a bit. Man, I had a lot of email to catch up on.

And now, to plan for tomorrow...

Arrived safely at J's after successfully NOT missing the train, even after having a dream that I was on the phone with J telling him I'd missed it.

Almost every year while at medical school, and for some of my postgraduate exams, I would have a dream with a similar theme (though different particulars) about a week before the first exam: I would turn up in my pyjamas ten minutes late, often to the wrong venue, with nothing to write with except one of those short stubby pencils one sees at the newsagent for filling out one's lottery tickets. If that. I used to call it my "Don't let this happen to you!" dream.

Needless to say, when came the day for the real thing, I would be an hour early and would be a walking stationery shop. For my final pathology exam, where failure was not an option, I not only brought extra pens and spare globes for my microscope, I brought an extra microscope and the one writing implement in the world that would never, ever stop working - a nib pen with ink bottle.

HEEE. Well, I once really arrived at a final with only a pen and a highlighter, when it was a Scantron pencil exam!

THAT sucked. Ever since then I've been extra careful whenever going someplace I might need to write things down with a particular instrument.

...Although I don't even own a nib pen with ink bottle. Hee.

Am sure it is because we are kindred souls, doomed to coldness and static by the inconsiderate gods of weather and hair.

I had a great time! Are you in NYC, then? I don't think I knew that. :)

I'm on Long Island...even colder! I'm glad you had a good time!

Ah-ha! I have a couple of friends from there. Actually the friend I stayed with is originally from Long Island.
