Well, I am finally home. Its really weird. Good, but weird. I can't quite recall how to behave appropriately in some everyday situations. For example, I went to Starbucks (wonderful wonderful Starbucks), ordered a drink, thanked the staff, and went to wait for my drink. The problem? I didn't pay. I didn't even think to pay. Hmm. Also, I am completely aghasted at the prices. Once you are used to paying 5 cents for a coffee, 4 dollars is insane. Maybe that is why I 'forgot' to pay! Hmm. Another pesky new habit is tearing up upon entering a grocery store. I just can't get over all the fresh produce. I feel all emotional about how privileged I am and then get overwhelmed with the seemingly insurmountable number of decisions to be made. Seriously, how many types of lettuce does one store need?
I tried to go shopping for some new clothes, but again, just think everything is too expensive. Once, when I was a kid, my dad nearly climbed through the McDonald's drive through window at a poor acne ridden teen-ager, because he simply couldn't believe the price of an orange juice. I nearly turned into my father this morning at the mall. Seriously, Anthropologie, $228 for a beach dress? Don't get too worried though. I did manage to cough up $6 for 80g of chocolate (Chuao, Spicy Maya. FYI), and its worth every penny.
A few things are new- I now have a Sprinkles in my neighborhood. How exciting! Girls are wearing really tiny jean shorts and NOT doing up the fly. On purpose. It looks completely ridiculous. Ron has taken to cutting his own hair. Well, most of it anyhow. No one can see the back of their head, right? Oh, and every time I turn around this double dream hands dude is on. What's with that?
My only news is that I have to provide LabCorp with 'stool' samples from now until eternity, upon the request of my doctor. I have a plethora of biohazard bags filled with these scary little tubes and their built in spoons. OMG.
On that note, check out my very first YouTube post:
