Making Progress

Wow, It's been a long time!

Well, Christmas break was fantabulous, made merry, was jolly, etc. Plus, I got to see all my dearly missed friends and family. I truly love Christmas.

So, it's already week two, and I'm already mired in heaps of house-hunting hullabaloo (great alliteration, eh?). Which is actually very thrilling, we're going to see a house tonight, and I have a good feeling about it. I bought three posters today for my future room (there is absolutely no way I could squeeze another poster onto the walls of my little shoebox), and I've decided to decorate my room in an international theme - so my list of posters thus accumulated goes like this: 1. Japan - moddy-looking Japanese railway poster, 2. France - black and white scene of the Eiffel Tower at night, 3. England - classic Beatles Abbey Road poster, 4. Spain - Salvador Dali print, 5. Africa (I know, Africa's not a country) - painting of the Serengeti, 6. United States - "Kissing the War Goodbye" Times Square/war time photo.

I think it's a good start.

I must say, so far this semester is much more enjoyable/social. I love friends! Oh, and also, my parents gave me a new fish friend for Christmas, a Betta, whom I have named Clementine. She's a beaut! Technically a male fish, but still a little darling.

I found this creepy, CREEPY video on the net today, and thought I would share the creepiness with all who view this page (?). It's a writing automaton, made in the 1700's. Can you believe it? That's really old. Creepiest aspect of this monstrocity: THE EYES MOVE TO FOLLOW THE PAGE. Egads! Hope you enjoy it.
