I have been home for a week and a half. So far my summer has been at all filled with the activities I expected to be hard at work at here -- writing porn, reading porn, chatting on AIM for hours a day and jobhunting have all been way underrepresented so far. On the other hand, some dark horses have shown up to occupy my time. Namely, reading, cooking, and playing Mario Kart. I've also spent some time doing data entry for my mom, but that's been like two hours total, so really, mostly the first three. It's been kind of glorious! My reading had been a lot less the last six months than it usually is, so it's been nice to get back into my normal groove with that. Since I got home I've finished a nonfiction cultural history of Russia, a fantasy satire, a classic British whodunnit, and a memoir I thought would be juicy but was surprisingly well-written. I'm about to start on YA on Amy's recommendation (now with extra apocalypse, incest and eating disorders!).

The two biggest successes cookingwise have been the stuffed peppers on Sunday night, and the baked four cheese pasta yesterday. The pasta was seriously yummy, but the stuffed peppers were glorious; I want to make them again right now. Thursday [livejournal.com profile] happy_coconut and I are going to experiment with spinach-cheese triangles: we're hoping for all the yumminess of spanokopita in bite-size portions, so we'll see how that turns out.

The Mario Kart kind of explains itself, I think. Kelly, my cousin and I have all gotten kind of addicted to the Wii in the last week and spend hours upon hours racing around the tracks. We all have very sore right thumbs.

I am planning on starting the job-hunting this week, though, for sure. Even just getting two or three applications this week will be a start. HEY IF ANY OF YOU GUYS HAVE A JOB LYING AROUND AND WANT A REALLY SMART AND ENTHUSIASTIC HARDWORKING COLLEG GRAD YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME, RIGHT? RIGHT? C'MON, FANDOM, LET'S GET THAT OLD GIRLS' CLUB WORKING HERE.

When I realized I had no Cab icons, the original pic of this icon was the first thing that came to my mind to remedy that.

Erica! I traveled through a part of Switzerland a couple days ago where people spoke Romansh (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romansh_language). I really wanted to get off the bus tour and hunt someone down and be like "TALK TO ME IN YOUR DIALECT OF AWESOME." but I a) am not in control of the bus and b) am not that much of a douchey tourist.

(hilarity: when I was googling up the wiki page there, google was like "HEY THAT WEIRD WORD YOU TYPED IN LOOKS LIKE 'ROMANCE'. ARE YOU POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE? :D :D :D?" I had to laugh.)
