As much as I prefer even numbers over odd, I really hope that I'm not coming down with cold #6 of the 05/06 academic year. I'm blaming it on the cruel change in weather here in Akron, from 70 degrees on Monday (oh! I opened all the windows and it was fantastic!) to 30s and snow from Tuesday on. Thus, with piles of work to do, I've brewed a big pot of green tea (Trader Joe's, I miss you), consumed a bowl of chili, and turned the heat up.
For my Aquafina-bashing posse: I am also drinking my first ever bottle of wild berry Flavor Splash, and it's actually not bad. The neck of the bottle is normal-sized, too, not like the firehose size drinkhole of the other Aquafinas. My alliances remain with Evian, however.
Tomorrow night is my grad & undergrad writing group's open mic night at Mocha Maiden in downtown Akron. Last time we had 45+ folks show up (not all to read, however; that would be an utter disaster), and I am keeping my fingers crossed for a good turnout. Luckily it ends at the pre-pajamatime hour of 9 pm.
AWP pics will be coming soon. Sometimes I just don't understand why Frank won't put photo editing software on my laptop.
