Cut cuddle and be Cute

Score on Sunday

It may be too reckless for me to be going to Brewberry's twice in one weekend (even if it is only a block away), but I'm not going to walk for six weeks and I wanted to have one last good weekend of independence. I'm glad I did it. Yesterday's walk was full of difficulty reading traffic, but today ow read the intersection perfectly! This was a good thing for me to see. If I'd really bombed it today, it would be that much harder to try to get out and walk after I recover. This is my opportunity to get it right.

As usual, it's all quiet on the campus. I'm not going to speculate on whether it's because people got drunk last night or studied because I don't think I really want to know the answer. I'm reading an excellent book by a doctor, she sounds wonderful, but I don't want to be her patient yet, she's a forensic pathologist. Still, her insight on death and dying is refreshing. She seems smart enough to know that she doesn't know it all.

Time to get studying!

No, we're not drinking alcohol. We're drinking coffee and it's excellent. If finished my sociology, I know I did my best, but I don't think my best is good enough in this case. We shall see. If I get a B, I'll be upset, but I'LL live. We're having fun conversations, and I thought I'd share:
Me: So I was writing about how I'm going to be off my foot for six weeks, and I reversed the i.
Jen: So you wrote (I'm not writing it here, but the reverse is an e, so figure it out)
Me: (blushes) Yep (hides behind hands.)
Jen,: You blush every time I say that, I love it!
Me: Guess how much fun it was to watch the birth control movie. I told the person next to me to let me know if my cheeks got too bright.

Later, coming back to our table:
Jen: Orangina reminds me of France because that's where I first had it.
Me: Really? It reminds me of France because it's one of the first things our French teacher taught us to order. Quotes self: Je voudrais un Orangina s'il vous plait. Then I translate: I want an "Orange Gina" darn it!

Also, I'm thinking of dying my hair, what color should I do it?

to restore Web Braille. I explained some of what Web Braille is already, but there is also an excellent description up at the site for the petition. Still, if you have any questions, please comment and I'll answer them. The loss of this service will have a huge impact on life for thousands of Americans with visual impairments.
