Due to great boredom...

And the fact that I've already posted two "big" posts today, rather than getting a third (the subject of which I've been contemplating for a while now) I'll just give an update on the school situation.

Tomorrow morning first thing, I'm running down to the college to the head of the Ag program's office, and seeing if I can't snag the work study position there. I've dealt with the head of the Ag program, I like the guy, and I know for a fact that he'll understand my weirdo schedule (he helped me put it together, after all.) So, I'll see if I can't get that.

Tomorrow afternoon, the cable/internet/phone guy had BETTER have his jumpsuited (I don't know if this company actually makes them wear jumpsuits but after Cable Guy thats my mental image of, well, a cable guy) butt here, and ready to hook up all my stuff, or I am going to be one unhappy little Farmgirl.

I will dance a dance of joy when I have real tv. My apartment is clean, I've vacuumed every day this week, the dishes are done and the counters wiped down, and I'm bored out of my freaking mind. I've watched every DVD I have here at least twice, and let them play as background noise at least that much. If I have to go one more day without distraction, I will go insane and start tracking the chihuahua down the hall with a paring knife, I swear.

On a slight side note, I discovered today that I can reach every carpeted part of my apartment to vacuum using the plug-in by the door. I've been unplugging it and moving it from the living room to the bedroom, on the assumption that it wouldn't reach, but I proved myself wrong.

Still not sure if that's a nifty labor saving fact or very, very sad. So far I'm leaning towards the first.

Ok, I think you need some distraction. Go to the library and get a lirary crd, and check out a few books. If you can't do that, go to and check out the free e-books. Ok? I'm starting to worry about ya.

Cable guy should be here today. I have a few books here (I managed to restrain myself from bringing all of my books, since I don't have anywhere to put them) but they're ones I've already read, and re-reading them doesn't seem to be doing the trick.

I've also managed to restrain myself from going to the new bookstore that opened up, the coffee shop, ordering chinese delivery, or pizza delivery.
