more of a general wondering... ment.

I've decided to call this blog "colorless green ideas sleep furiously." It has long been a favorite quite of mine (Noam Chomsky, by the way, if you're wondering), because I just love those words, and I love how the sentence itself makes absolutely no sense, and yet, syntactically, it's a perfect sentence. I love it in a similar way that I love "The Jabberwocky", by Lewis Carroll... you should google that right now, if you are unfamiliar.

I am now installed in Florida, in my new townhouse. I intend to post some pictures, both here and on Facebook, but I have a million things to do at the moment, so nothing quite yet. But they are coming, I know you are eagerly awaiting them.

Today has been both an extraordinarily boring day and a wonderfully exciting day. Today, I woke up early so that my internet and cable could be installed. I also ran errands, such as renters and car insurance, the bank, and getting gas for my car (which is about 40 cents cheaper here than in the mitten). Then it was back to the house, waiting for my mattress and the movers to come deliver my things. A day of moving things in and unpacking somewhat.

The wonderfully exciting news came later, but I don't want to spoil it before it can be shared by those who's news it is. Though, you may be able to guess anyway.

My Last Days in the Mitten

Wednesday night was the first time that I was sad about leaving for Florida. Some of my friends wrote me these lovely cards, and it made me realize how much I am going to miss them. Tonight, I went to a Tigers game with Caitlin, and when we said goodbye, we both broek down and cried. Right there in the middle of the street.

We're such girls.

But tomorrow, I get to see Lindsey, who I haven't seen in ages! It will all be good fun, and then the car packing frenzy will begin. It's going to be a bit crazy, since I haven't really packed everything up yet. Yikes!

28 hours until I leave for Florida!

It's the final countdown...!

You know, when I opened up my browser I thought I had a whole entry in mind for you, but apparently all I have in my brain is a whole bunch of random strings of thought, which are barely coherent.

Six days to Florida!
