Week Wrap Up -- First Week Back from Mexico

It feels like Mexico was years ago. Work this last week was brutal. On the plus side, I got one of my three back paychecks on Friday, along with the one due to me. Don't know if it's really a "plus side" to get the money I work for, but whatever.

I had a pretty good weekend. On Friday I walked over to the Borders on the Magnificent Mile (Chicago's shopping strip) to do some writing. Got on cupcake on my walk over. Saturday went out to brunch and then hung out with my friend Ducky that night. Today we went with some friends to brunch and then a play at the Goodman Theater (more on that on tomorrow's My Town Monday) and then ran some errands, including buying new bubble baths from Lush--and picked up my cell phone that I had forgotten at Ducky's--oops. All in all it was a pretty good weekend.

Well, going to do a bit more writing before I go to bed. I've thought of some new plot points, which I am excited to implement.

Spring classes start tomorrow night. Calculus based Statistics. Fun times.

6 tidbits:

I'd love to be able to walk to a bookstore and get a cupcake! Unfortunately here in Texas, you drive everywhere.

That sounds like a fun weekend. Bonus weekend points for getting paid.

That's bizarre! I feel for you. I've been jipped several times by students. And last week a parent handed me a check, laughing, "Oh! Hahahaha! I'm so lazy about getting this to you on time!"

As if, "Aren't I cute?"

So not. Rude is more like it. What kind of society do we live in?

We have a great zoo here. This reminds me I need to visit it again soon.

Good luck with the stat

@Duck- Despite the cold, it was pretty fun. I'm chomping at the bit for Spring.

@Paul- I've been trying to decide if I should call you paul or writer. I was calling you writer, but you've been putting your name, so I'm going with paul :). Yes, getting paid was nice, can't wait for the hold on the check to be done...joy.

@spy- That is horrible that the parents have been jipping you and the one was so nonchalant about it. What a way to show their kid responsibility! I hope that they stop doing that to you.

@charles- Thanks, I'm in stat right now, actually...lol.

strugglingwriter said...

Yeah, Paul is fine. Sometimes I forget to put that at the end, but I'm always Paul.

I hope stats went well.
