On Doing the Limbo

I will be in limbo in two more days! The movers come in three days! Ahhhhh. Tell me to get off the Hairpin and get back to my far-too-long-to-finish work to-do list.

On How Your Sweet Valley High Gets Made

@melis SPOILER: I have not read it, but I think this is the premise of the new "Sweet Valley Confidential" ten-years-later book.

On Baby, Sexy, Bitch

Maybe the biggest benefit of my hearing loss is that I am oblivious to most of the street harassment that comes my way, but man, if I am really only hearing 40% of it, I don't even want to think about the rest.

I have noticed that I get the MOST harassment when I am wearing my reflective running vest that says "DEAF" on it. (I run on a busy multi-use path with a lot of bikers and can't hear them say "on your left!") What is the point of harassing someone that you think can't even hear you? It's a mystery.

The setting on the pink diamond ring is kind of freaking me out! It looks like claws reaching up or something!

On How Ya Been, Pin Pals?

My pinpal is awesome! And I owe her a letter. My excuse is that I was waiting until I had a new address in my new city to give her, and since I FINALLY have a place to live, now I can do that!

@josiahg I will but it is my very last free day in Chicago, so the odds of flaking on you in favor of the aquarium are high.
