    Have you decided whether you will interview at MN or not yet? Or does this help make the decision really easy? :D

    Then you enjoy your delicious victory burrito! I'm partial to victory food involving goat cheese as well as watching a bit of sappy stuff like Pushing Daisies or the Royal Tenenbaums. I guess we're easy to please! :)
    I had no idea that was your cat! So exotic and beautiful (or should I say handsome?). I definitely approve of the pose (especially with the fire in the background.) ;)

    Not sure yet, everyone keeps telling me to not "put all your eggs in one basket", but the flight for 2 people, rental car, hotel for probably 2 nights...that would add up :confused:

    I'm basically waiting to find out if my husband gets a job here in IL (a job he's supposedly been getting for like the past 6 months). Not sure where it'll go from there...

    But yeah, this helps! Having a definite YES may sway my decision a bit.

    After spending $1,500 on my cat over the last 4 weeks, he's doing really well and I found out that I'm going to get at least that much back when my tax refund comes in! Yay!

    Being of the ginger species, I have blonde eyelashes and eyebrows.

    I'd been neglecting my transparent brows... so I spent some time dying them a more normal shade of light brown and plucking them back into a reasonable shape today.

    They look nice. I'm pretending my developmental anatomy exam isn't tomorrow.

    Life is good.

    Thanks! :) :love: He's pretty damn obnoxious. I got all comfortable with my 20 year old girl. These youngsters take some energy to work with!!

    He hurt himself for the first time today. Came in from turnout bleeding from the inside of his leg and it just bled and bled and bled. He wouldn't let me touch it so I just hosed it, sprayed some betadine in, and wrapped it. A couple hours later, I took off the wrap and he let me play with it. Just a scratch. No need to panic. PHEW!

    I also spent the afternoon neglecting our exam tomorrow. Instead, I got caught up on lectures, watched a few episodes of How I Met Your Mother and lounged with the dog. Great break from this week!!

    So this is kind of a rant turned into a rave. I have two kitties. I got the boy (Sushi) first as a baby and he has been a fre-feeder his whole life. He just comes and eats when he feels like it. Two years later I rescued my girl kitty (Firefly). She is NOT a free feeder and gobbles up anything in sight. I once caught her carrying an entire torlilla in her mouth (and she's not that big a cat!). So to handle their feeding. I lock her in the closet (don't worry its large) and feed her her diet food there and let my boy kitty eat until he is hungry out in the bedroom. Well when I leave for the weekends this ritual is impossible so I have been leaving out enough food for both of them and hoping (I know-dumb) that he will get to eat some of it before she eats ALL of it. However, as could have been foretold, she has gained quite a bit of weight.
    So my solution...
    I am getting an automatic feeder for her so that she can be fed on a regular schedule. Hopefully she can't break into it. For him I am purchasing a cat door that is racoon/Firefly proof and attaching it to the side of a large tupperware bin that will have his food in it. He will then wear a collar with an RFID chip in it so that when he goes up to the door it will unlock for him. But it will stay locked for miss fatty. I hope this rather expensive solution does the trick!!
    The things we do for our pets...

    My computer came back way, way WAY ahead of schedule and I was accosted by Girl Scouts on my way to the train.

    Today may be considered a good day (even though my stomach is a touch sore from too many cookies).

    How do you already have cookies?! I got attacked by girl scouts about a week ago at my apartment and was told that they don't come in until ~Feb 20th. I'm jealous of you and your early cookies.

    I thought they said they're starting to carry the cookies with them so that you get them right away. At least that's how it is with the girl scouts here. And caramel delights....mmmm!! Dang it now you all got me in cookie mode!

    THANK YOU for calling them Caramel Delights... when did they decide to change their name to "Semoas"? Or is that just here in the Northeast? When I was in FL, they were always caramel delights! People look at me like I'm NUTS when I say that here.:laugh:

    There's two companies that make the cookies (used to be a Girl Scout) so the supplier depends on where you live. For instance, I live in southeastern PA and get Caramel Delights but my boyfriend in Pittsburgh has always known them as Semoas. Caramel Delights and Semoas are actually also slightly different. I think Semoas use dark chocolate instead of milk.

    No problem. Actually quite a few of the cookies have different names. Tagalongs=Peanut Butter Patties, Trefoils=Shortbread and Do-si-dos=Peanut Butter Sandwiches. There are also some cookies one company sells but the other doesn't. And despite being a Girl Scout since I was in 5th grade, I only figured this out when I was in college and started talking with different people.

    Yep, now that you mention it, they are all different. I usually only buy the caramel delights so I wasn't thinking about the other names, but it is very true. I'll stick with my originals! (I think they taste better anyway ;) )

    haha well it really stems from the fact that i can't remember them ever being called anything but samoas. so when you were referring to them as caramel delights and then spelling it semoas, i sort of wondered if it was another actual cookie. though it seemed like such a crummy marking ploy to have them spelled so similarly haha

    I told myself I wouldnt buy girl scout cookies this year because of the semi-dieting attempts.
    But damn you are all making me want some.
    And if the adorable little blond haired/blue eyed girl scout comes around to my house again this year, I doubt I'll be able to resist :laugh:

    I definately thought you said you got Samosas and I was really confused that you bought 84 boxes of cookies and got samosas in return... ?!

    They used to come to our door but only offered boring chocolate or vanilla cookies, none of this samosa sh*t. I only ate the chocolate ones anyway :(

    The girl scouts on our campus have started getting smart and will take credit cards now... they get me every time. I was a girl scout for 10+ years so I don't mind too much, though. :laugh:

    My rave? Frolicking ferrets are the perfect thing to wake up to in the morning. So cute.

    Oh my goodness! Who would have thought the mere mention of GS cookies would spark such chatter! :laugh:

    To answer the jealousy question... The City of Brotherly Love isn't the safest place for tots to be going door to door. So, they set up shop in the train stations with full cash and carry service. It's really quite clever... The come with a table, adults, cases of cookies and their smiling faces. They stay safe and ensure they won't get 'stiffed' upon delivery. What's really nice is that the public transportation system gives all troops a chance. However, it's not so good for the 'weak' commuter... Last year I tried the 'But I already bought cookies' and got the response of "But not from OUR troop!". Cost me yet another box of Thin Mints. Thank goodness they freeze so darn well... I had cookies well into the fall! :D

    And I still can't get used to the fact that the names of the cookies 'changed' on the East Coast. I still call them Samoas, Tagalongs, etc... And thanks to orca2011 for helping me to figure out what's 'missing' in the Caramel Delight. The cookie just isn't the same in the milk chocolate. Thank heavens they left the Thin Mint unscathed!!

    I'm pretty sure the East Coast names were the ORIGINALS!!! ;) I don't think names were ever "changed", I just think they have always been called something different in each region... *cough* caramel delights *cough* :p

    Omg, I love girl scout cookies. My parents would always buy a ton of boxes when I was in girl scouts. And now that I'm older I always buy at least 2 boxes of each flavor. :D

    Doesn't it feel great to find the perfect outfit? I have a couple of events coming up and am still searching for mine (mostly online shopping because I'm very tall and can't every buy pants in a store). I'll know it when I see it, though! Good luck on your interview!

    Cheap clothes! :D I'm not a big clothes shopper (it comes with having somewhat alternative taste), but I do like a bargain. I picked up a dress for my university graduation just before Christmas. Classic but unique black dress. $75 marked down to $14.

    Of course, with any luck, that dress might be too big by graduation day in May, because I'm down another 2lbs! :D

    Haha, you're quite welcome. I've pretty much always had the Caramel Delights, but got Samoas when I was in school in Baltimore. I kind of prefer them since I love dark chocolate. But anything with chocolate is good, so no major complaints.

    I doubt anyone would want my clothes. :laugh: I tend to wear them to death (several t-shirt have small holes, but I refuse to part with them yet cause I love them). I wouldn't mind buying all new jeans though.
