The Fey and the Ferocious

I made a mental review of all the things I still needed to do before I go. So far, I guess, everything has been taken care of. The car's registration is done, the tires and the battery is done, the call to my grandmother, the call to the airlines, the inquiry to internet service providers, the person to drive me to the airport, the person to pick me up at the destination airport, my belongings, my luggage, the things that I'll be leaving here, goodbyes to friends and family, almost everything is done.

All except this one phone call to my current internet service provider.

Somehow, the office of our internet service provider has disappeared, and we cannot contact the proper persons involved. I want to inquire many different things regarding their services, and I cannot get hold of them.

My sister is getting irritated. Between the two of us, she is the one that is the ferocious. She gives the people anger and shock therapy to get what she wants. That's the way she got a cellphone number of one of the ISP guys. I on the other hand, does it more diplomatically. I guess we make a good team.

I found a meme, from Shades of Pink by way of Humor Girl. I guess having nothing to do at home makes me wanna answer one of these.

If you ever answer these, leave a note so I can read your answers, ok?

I got an email from one of my future professors in UB. I learned that I will be her TA. Yay! A teaching assistant! I know I know. You might be thinking "who in the world would be happy to be a TA? Only nerds go crazy at that". No, it's not like that. It's just that I am happy that people I haven't met yet have enough trust in me to actually allow me to be a TA even without meeting me beforehand. So I get to grade papers and give a lecture, and I get to have some office hours. I'm getting excited and can't wait to go to Buffalo.

4 days to go...


  1. HAH - your carpet!

    Seriously, though, nice list of answers you've got there.
