so much to say

haven't blogged sinvce I finished exams. Spent a few days in Erie with my grandparents, celebrated CHristmas there. LOts of family and friends over on Christmas eve, then went to Anut Sally's on CHristmas, saw people some more. Had a whole stack of boxes waiting for me in Erie from my parents, so I had gifts to open on CHristmas. All books! MWahaha! Can never have too many of those. Mostly poetry, too, which'll help with the Comp next semester shudder>

Am in Tel Aviv now with parents. Getting here was an ordeal, though. The flight out of Erie (10:05) didn't leave until 11:00am, so I arrived in Cleaveland at 11:30, just in time to miss my connecting flight to NEwark. I got a flight to Newark at 3:30pm, which is when the flight to Tel Aviv left from NEwark, so I missed that, too. The flight out of Cleveland was also delayed, so I got into Newark about 6:00pm, with plenty of time to go talk to somebody about getting on the 11:00pm flight to Tel Aviv, which I already knew was overbooked (but at least I got a first class seat for an hour).
They put me on standby, and I was confirmed for the 3:30 flight the next day, so I'd get there eventually. Just really didn't want to spend the night in NEwark. Ick. Did that once, back in Elementary school, and did not enjoy it. So I go back to the counter a couple hours later, they check my bag through on standby, and I go to the gate. I sit there for a couple hours until they start boarding. Wait some more. After everyone else is confirmed as being there and checked in, I begin to gear up for the fight over getting Continental to give me a hotel voucher like they're required to by regulations but I know they'll try to avoid doing.
THen I hear my name called, and I rush up to the desk, get a boarding pass and scramble on tio find seat 38b. A middle seat, of course, but I can't really complain because it was close to my not getting anything.
But I got here. And that's the important part. Afdam and Emily arrive on Thursday, we'll celebrate Christmas as a family Friday. I have a bunch of gifts from me and from other family to wrap and put under the tree.
NOw its time to go crash.

so much work to do...

so little time. SPeaking of which, I need to go to work for Francesca, to make up for the day I skipped last week since I wasn't feeling well.
But yeah, lotsa papers to write and such.

And I'm currently hating myself, because I can't find the hat Dad gave me last CHristmas from Afghanistan. I love that hat! I can't imagine where I could have left it. I swear I had it Monday, and I think I had it yesterday, but I didn't wear it. Can't find it in the car, or in my room. Hoping it turns up soon.

Well, I've been feeling lousy the last couple days. Like there's something stuck in my throat and it itches. But I'm feeling better this morning, so hopefully I won't be ill during finals. (fingers crossed!) Will try toget up to Erie this weekend (since I didn't go last time due to weaather).

Also, the Market House is doing The Complete History of America: Abridged this weekend, so I wanna go see that. at $3 a ticket, I can't reallt complain if it's not great. Amatuer theater gets little expectation from me these days.

so much snow...!

oh, so much snow. It started last night and just hasn't stopped. I knew it would happen. It was too nice for too long. Soon as December got here, the blizzard started. there's gotta be at least a foot, foot-and-a-half of snow on the ground. I had to clean my car off every time I went anywhere today. I'd be gone for an hour, and it would need to be brushed off all over again. I was planning on going up to Erie to do some CHristmas shopping tomorrow, but if the weather keeps up like this, it just isn't worth the hassle and risk.
