Important Thoughts 13.0

13.1: School makes me busy. I have classes from 8:30 am to 5:45 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays (with a break for lunch), and one class on Wednesday from 10:15 to 11:05. You might think I would have a lot of extra time on my hands, with Mondays and Fridays completely open, but you would be wrong. You would be the wrongest person in the whole world. Mondays and Fridays are booked. Tell me this -- how am I going to meet my goal of watching all nine seasons of Seinfeld if I don't get in some serious TV time on my days off?

13.2: Christian bought me a new* car last month! We knew we were going to get me a car sometime soon, but still, everything happened so suddenly. One Friday Christian looked at cars online, he told me about a possibility that night, I looked at it the next morning, he called Carmax that afternoon, and we bought it that evening, and that was that. It's a white automatic '07 Toyota Camry with leather seats, and it is so awesome. It doesn't leak water through the doors, the ceiling isn't falling down, the seatbelt is always in the right place, and the radiator and air conditioning are working perfectly. Basically, it's perfect. Pictures to come.

13.3: Storytime! Once upon a time last fall, I decided that I wanted a new pair of jeans. A pair of dark trouser-ish jeans. So I walked into American Eagle, I picked up a pair in my size, and I bought them. I thought I was done. But I was the wrongest person in the world, because I wasn't done. Those jeans were too big and they stretched out too easily. I was constantly sticking them in the dryer. So after Christmas, I got myself a pair from J. Crew on sale. I measured myself to get the right size, and I ordered them off the online. When I got them, they were ginormous. Too big in the waist, hips, and thigh, too long in the leg. I couldn't return them, so I sold them on eBay. Last Tuesday, I was tired of still not having my jeans, so during my lunch break I walked into the Gap, picked up a pair of jeans of every style in two different sizes, and tried them all on. Twelve different pairs of jeans. And I found the ones that I wanted. And I love them. And we're going to live happily ever after, at least until this spring, because then I think I want some skinny jeans. The End.

13.4: I think I killed the African violet my mom gave me for a birthday present last year. It does not look good.

*New = new for us.

  1. Go you, Mary! I would have given up after the 3rd or 4th pair in dispair. Glad you found the one that works. The G-A-P skinny jeans are aces.

    If you want a totally rockin' pair of jeans, try the brand 'seven jeans' or 'joes jeans'. They will seriously change your life (even though they're expensive).
