"Soulmate, dry your eyes..."

My mother's back in town. Apparently either I did clean the house well enough, or she's too tired to yell at me. Really, I'll take either at this point. :) When we both have more time I'll have to pick her brain about how things are going over there, but it sounds like she and Ral are happy enough. Ral, amusingly, is on her second "husband" (her words, not mine) since the move. Apparently she traded in her chef for a postgraduate in some unspecified scientific field, citing the fact that he's also from Nigeria (and our family's , at that), six and a half feet tall, really, really cute, and has upward professional mobility.

She also has moved out and has a 22-year-old roommate she'll be staying with in Queens, instead of being shipped off to family friends in Newark as had been planned. Mom and I both hope this will be a step towards eroding her paradoxically strong attachment to Mom.

Networking exam is done. It went pretty well, I would say. I made one major mistake and one slightly less major mistake, but combined with my course grade I should be sitting quite pretty. Tomorrow - Calculus, the fourth of five. I think I'm ready for that one as well, by now. At least nothing is throwing me completely for a loop.

And then Christmas shopping. My list is shorter than I wish it could be, but we've all been starving students and know how that goes. Right?

I will not buy At All Costs when I'm in Chapters tomorrow.

I will not buy At All Costs.

I will not buy At All Costs.

Oh, fuck.

-D.
