1. It's difficult to fit my new lunch bag into my backpack--a total disappointment. 
2. Wyatt from Weird Science is the new Medievalist in our English Department. WEEEEEEEEEIRD! 
3. Budget cuts = sweaty classrooms = sweaty Danielle & sweaty Kiffy. 
4. Furlough days = me getting gypped.

stay-cation day 2

One trip to The Container Store, two organized sock drawers, (I don't know if these first two should be included as official stay-cation activities) one matinee, and a couple of never-ending pasta bowls later, and we've come to the conclusion of our stay-cation. As promised, it was quite eventful.
However, today we did bike to 7-11 for Slurpees. I guess if we count working, going to school, and running seemingly pointless errands as the necessary evils of our stay-cations, and throw in some fun here and there, it seems our lives can be perceived as one perpetual stay-cation, can't they? 
Maybe not.  
And maybe next time we'll just go camping.

stay-cation day 1

We are broke. So, we'll be having a stay-cation this summer.

Kiffy hates hybrid words, by the way (he told me so when I brought up having a stay-cation this year), but I think they are clever. Stay-cation, stay-cation. Ever since he agreed to this so-called stay-cation, he says I've been over using the term. He's right.

Day one consisted of once again taking advantage of our close proximity to Little Saigon. We dropped some big bucks and had 15 dollar hour-long massages. You might be thinking this sounds a little sketchy. I did too. And maybe it is a little bit. But, alas, it was legit and strong Korean men do give great massages. We both had a fine, relaxing time, and isn't that what massages are all about anyway?

To top off our luxurious day, we got some delicious chicken McNuggets to fill our bellies as per Kiffy's request. A fine day, indeed!

Stay tuned to see what day 2 has in store for us. Ohhhh, exciting!

perks of teaching in Little Saigon

BOBA smoothies on a boiling day! I've acquired quite the taste for those strange-textured little tapioca pearls. Remember when Boba became the hip thing to drink? The hype over Boba has died out some since cupcakes and fro-yo have taken it's place, but there will always be a corner in my heart for Boba. Doubleplusgood!
