So, the past week has been more or less characterized by wicked thunderstorms rolling through the Philadelphia area. At times, its been neat, but more and more it's annoying.

Monday was generally storm free, and I went to Quizzo.

Tuesday was dinner and Ikea with Em. We went into Ikea and the sky was slightly overcast. We left Ikea (at around 7:30pm) and she and I were convinced the end was near. The sky was D-A-R-K dark. We were petrified for our entire ride home.

Wednesday was another storm free day, but it was overcast and vaguely threatening all day.

Thursday was also vaguely threatening. I actually don't remember the weather that day because I was working really hard on my thesis.

Last night was ridiculous. Rain off and on all day. So, that night we had the brilliant idea of going to Main Street with Jen. She lives close and we could walk. The walk there was nice, but the skies opened up on the walk home and it was scary! We ended up seeking refuge in Jen's brother's house until late at night. That made getting up this morning tough for Jason.

Today has been rainy too. I'm pretty sure I fell asleep for part of it, but another storm is on its way. The forecast seems to promise nothing but rain and scary-ness. I just want to walk to the store!

Life at 330.

Well, Jason and I have been living together for almost a month now, and I have to say, it's pretty awesome. We still haven't gotten every thing unpacked and where it needs to be. We're still missing a few pieces of furniture. There are still piles of my junk hanging out all over. However, it works right now and we do a little here and there.

I've been steadily working on my thesis, with one of the chapters really coming close to a final-rough draft. I still have to start 2 or 3 chapters, and get some serious edits going on the other, but I feel comfy with the way things are going. I also tried out for a play and got called back. However, I haven't heard back yet, and I'm keeping my hopes low in order to avoid real disappointment. It was still fun to get back on the proverbial horse, since I hadn't attempted theatre since Picasso.

We also bought some more Wii games at the Game Stop sale, and I'm really enjoying "De Blob," which is so much fun! Basically, you are a blob and you roll around making things colorful and liberating this city from the evil ink oppressors. I'm on level 5 and Jason's on level 2. He had to beat Zelda first. We borrowed that from Fred.

Not much else to report. Pictures of the new digs when I feel like things look organized enough.

200 days until the wedding!
