Do you play guitar?

No, but I play banjo.


let me tell you, i've put about 2500 miles on my car in the last 3 weeks. it's rough. i mean, the drive is not that bad, but then i spend the weekend laying in the hotel watching movies. now, i LOVEs me some movies, but doing nothing else for two-and-a-half days makes you feel like your muscles are atr...atrof....atroph...not working.

the worst thing is the money. missing a day of work each week, combined with buying practically three gallons of gas each week, makes for an achey wallet. i'm straining to stay on my budget, but that's taking a toll as well.

but the good news is that my dad is glad that i'm there. he is sincerely disappointed when i leave, which i'm not used to. i'm actually not going this weekend, and he's disappointed about that, too. but my aunt is going there, so i took the week off to work some extra hours and help out my bank account (seeing as how next week i have to pay the 50 dollars it cost to replace my dumbass razr phone).

also good news: dad is finally feeling better. just as i was leaving this past weekend, he said that he felt as good as he had since he started the chemo. the medication was finally doing what it was supposed to do. so that's good. and the chemo and radiation are doing what they are supposed to do, also. the lump in his neck as apparently gone down considerably.

next post, i will talk to you about redneck bidets and writing on bathroom walls.

ps - flixster is awesome!!! and i'm on facebook now too.

Can you sing in a high falsetto voice?


Yay for blog updates! Three things:
1. Yay for your dad feeling better! And you're such a good son (not in the creepy Macaulay Culkin (yes, I googled how to spell his name) movie kind of way, but in the sincere kind of way).
B. You have to buy THREE WHOLE GALLONS of gas every week? That's rough, Bea. Rough. :) (Sorry - couldn't help myself.)
III. I am simultaneously looking forward to and dreading finding out what that whole redneck bidet thing is all about.
d. Whoever got you to join Facebook must be awesome. I'm just saying.

so glad to hear your dad is doing better.

and i suppose you are forgiven for your scrubsian slip. (maybe you have to be a psychology major to appreciate that joke...) yeah...

Whoo! You live! Facebook...Myspace... you've officially become an interwub trendwhore. That's not necessarily a bad thing, I'm just saying... XD

And I've become totally obsessed with Scrubs this semester, mainly because it's on when I get home from class and am making dinner (it's the one show I watch these days). So, anyone that watches Scrubs is cool by association. har har

I love that you are listening to Four. A great CD. I am glad to hear that your dad is doing well. I am glad you know how much it means to your dad. I wonder what it is meaning to you.

You are a smart cookie.
