UNC and plan to start taking classes in the fall. I have only today filed my taxes so that I could finish my FAFSA, so both are going through the bureaucracy now -- or will be soon, I guess, since it's still Sunday.
Nedah, to see Christopher Moore speak in Denver and get his autograph. The man is a very sick sort of genius -- complex yet simple, irreverent, hilarious (seriously, I've literally laughed out loud while reading every single book), and actually intelligent. I've read all of his books, and owned all but one before the new release last Tuesday. I ordered Sacre Bleu: A Comedy D'Art online because it was significantly cheaper and I didn't really have time to read it during the week anyway, so when it arrived yesterday I was on my way to the signing. I am still working on it, but it starts off with Vincent van Gogh so it's already off to a brilliant start! And even in just the first couple chapters, reading his distinct writing style is like visiting an old friend. Okay, maybe I need some more actual friends...

even if it was almost three months late!
Thank you, Nedah!
Lastly, I've been reading the blog 1000 Awesome Things for a little while -- and went back to look through the archive to catch up as much as I could when I found it last year. The author, Neil Pasricha, started it by counting down from 1000 naming many of the innumerable awesome things about life, relationships, the world, and the small things. There are many that have been funny, as well as several that are touching and poignant. Others are so obvious, the title is all that's needed. The glass-is-half-full sort of perspective has even spawned two books. Now, however, is the home stretch. Tomorrow's post, already up now, is #9. I am sad that something so uplifting will be ending. I really loved the post I saw this morning on Post Secret and encourage anyone who hasn't already seen it to read it. And for those of you who need a pick-me-up, I encourage you to read both blogs. They're both AWESOME!
I promise I'll try to be better about posting shorter updates more often...but I can't promise it'll work! Anyway, I'm off to read!
