So I’ve been back in chilly Buffalo, NY since late Tuesday night. I took a bus at 12:45 that afternoon and didn’t arrive until 11:10 pm. I had to wait in Syracuse for 2 hours, which was rather boring. In Rochester, some border police checked everyone on the bus to make sure we’re all legally in the country. So there were a few holdups that added to the time, but the trip was decent overall. No one sat next to me with a smelly salami sandwich like on my last bus ride. I’m pleased. I had to take my computer on the bus with me as carry-on. It’s like 25 pounds or more and I had to carry a million other things…
Since I’ve been home, Justin and I have just been watching movies, playing Nintendo and listening to music. I finally gave Justin his Christmas presents. I got him a few records (Orchid, Ampere, The Blood Brothers) on some pretty cool colored vinyl and I got him some books (E.E. Cummings, Orwell, etc) and a couple other tiny things. Anyway, things have been mellow so far, which is cool. I went to his job for a little and we hung out and ate Doritos. He’s lucky that he has such an unrestrictive job, and works all his shifts alone. He just got a raise, too
Next week I need to do a lot of stuff to get back on track, including setting up a dentist appointment and figuring out the rest of this college paperwork shit. I’m sort of dreading that, especially since I have to come up with money for testing and whatnot. Ugh.
When I have time, I’ll probably get to work scanning more magazines, because I have them stockpiled from when I was gone, and my scans site is laying there idle.
