sorry everyone for the change... i decided to switch again to WORDPRESS, because i kept finding that i couldn't customize Blogger the way i wanted to.

Please continue to read my blog as i prepare to leave Philadelphia... you can now all find me at THIS LOCATION.

I promise i won't switch again.

so the other day, my officemate that i mentioned below...let's call him L ... sits down to eat his lunch. he eats his sandwich first, and then casually mentions that he's going to have salad as well. i wasn't really paying attention, but suddenly, he pulls open his desk drawer and pulls out an ENTIRE HEAD of lettuce!! he hastily ripped off giant leaves of lettuce, crumpled it into a ball, and noisily stuffed the entire thing into his mouth. i was secretly cracking up the entire time. it was 15 minutes of him manually ripping leaves off of the lettuce (without washing!!) and stuffing them into his mouth. Very interesting. It sounded crunchy and tasty.

blogging at work.

my days here at the VAMC/PENN hospital are quickly coming to a close. i only have 13 official more days of work until i am outta here! i can't wait to leave a cold and musty office, and get away from a particular office mate...who although is a nice guy, loudly gargles and swishes his water in his mouth everytime he takes a sip, presumably to clean his constantly food-encrusted braces. he always proceeds to swallow that mouthful of water, full of floating soggy food particles that he just loosened from his braces. sometimes, he accidentally farts too... but i always pretend not to hear it. i also pretend not to care when he shuts off the lights in the office, props up his feet, and goes to sleep for an hour at a time, lightly snoring with his mouth hanging open. but seriously. shutting off the lights while i'm still here? i hope he never sees this.

it's really disconcerting that i still don't know where the heck i am going... even though i am moving out in 4 weeks. sometimes it's fun to live on the edge, but having 4 weeks left and having absolutely no idea what city or even part of the country i will be moving to is cutting it too close! people keep asking me where i am going, and the answer still is... I HAVE NO IDEA. i still have to hear back from 2 grad schools, after which i will finally make a decision.

this summer, i think i need to take a trip to hong kong or japan, JUST to get on this plane. AWESOME. EVAAIR kittyjet!!! more to come on the kittyjet.
