What a week!
The stock market tanked. The Connecticut Supreme Court overturned the state’s gay marriage ban. Obama is leading the polls (despite the connection with Ayers). The Nitany Lions creamed the Badgers last night. I miss my family.
It’s fall. Its’ beautiful- an utter symphony of beautiful colors, crisp air, and crunching leaves. Yesterday the final trailer for Twilight was released, and it looks fantastic. Any fears I had about the movie not doing homage to the novel seem to be allayed for now. And yesterday I drove sixty miles to meet a wonderful friend for coffee/dinner/chatting at the halfway point between our respective cities. It was a wonderful four hours of fellowship, laughter, and remembering just how awesome good friends are. Gas is blessedly cheap right now, $3.19. If I go to Fleet Farm and use my 4 cents off coupon it’ll only be $3.15. (aside: how ridiculous is it that $3.15/gal is “blessedly cheap?!”)
This week is my one week a month off from directing the childrens’/youth choir, and I get to go to Madison on Friday, star sewing my Halloween costume, and on Tuesday night I’m dying my hair red. I’m a little nervous about going redhead, but we’ll see how it turns out.
