randomness...: May 2006

My opinions, updates on my life, all sorts of "randomness"...

Only 3 days left, before I move up to camp. And even though I know I'll be back in September, it still feels like I'm saying goodbye to everyone, and everything. I've only been in Chicago for eight months--it feels way too soon to be leaving. And way too soon for camp--so many things I wish I had time to do.

This weekend was my "last" Shabbas in Lakeview, and then my "last" night out on the town. Yael, Jo & I went to this awesome Hookah Bar, Sigara . Sitting on pillows on the floor in these little tent-like structures, with fun music, belly dancers, hookah, and yummy drinks--amazing. One slightly sketchy permanent frat boy, some kid who works for SAE, who didn't seem to get the memo that we weren't interested, but otherwise some fun people. I'm gonna have to head back there when I get home... (hey, look at me calling Chicago home!)

Yesterday was day-o-packing/cleaning. So first take a moment to be impressed that I've started packing prior to 3 am on the day I'm supposed to leave--quite a change, right? Now take back how impressed you are, since there's still tons to do, and no idea when I'll have time to do it...

I took my car into the shop on Friday, to make sure things are working before I drive it up to camp, and they just called me to tell me what they found... Over $1400 of repairs!!! Oh man, sooo not what I was hoping for... Slash it would have been nice to have a car to run errands to get ready for camp, which clearly can't happen now.

Okay, off to more camp schedule craziness with Francie. Seriously, you have know idea how insanely difficult this is, unless you're Jenny Farber, in which case you clearly do...but for the rest of you, let's just say it's basically impossible... Fun, right?

Oh man, this is amazing...
Go to Google
Type in "Failure"
Click "I'm Feeling Lucky"
(in case google fixes this...as of now it takes you to this link)

Less than two weeks 'till I move up to camp.... As excited as I know I should be, I can't help but feel like I don't want to go. I know camp itself will be amazing, but being away for over 3 months...that part I'm not ready to deal with.

I was just up there last week and starting setting things up, which was pretty cool. Besides the couple dead mice we found, the program building, the "machson," was in pretty good shape. It's so exciting that we have a space entirely devoted to program at camp. So the craziest part of being up there? It snowed. Seriously. The middle of May and it finally decides to snow...

Had people over for lunch on Shabbas, my last Shabbas meal at my place before I leave for the summer. It feels like I just moved here, like I'm just starting to settle into a routine here and meet people, and now I'm leaving. I got to see my room at camp, and it's totally gorgeous, so that at least is a good thing...

Really fun almost last weekend, and productive day of laundry & cleaning today... I have to start packing for camp soon, which is insane.

Okay, enough random babbling...

So I went to the store to buy some pasta and sauce (shocker). When I came home, I looked in my grocery bag, and saw four ears of corn. Corn?! What in the world am I supposed to do with corn?? Slash now I feel like I need to go back to the store and pay for it, this corn that I didn't want to begin with...
