chillin' in the bluff

September 27, 2005 at 12:57 pm (Uncategorized)

so, we got our apartment- yay! it took forever for them to okay it, because of the hurricane evacuation (everyone jumped town on wednesday, and didn’t come back until monday, even though the hurricane missed our part of the coast), but at last we’ve moved most of our stuff into it, and both the cat and fish seem happy, so i’m happy too. it’s a nice place, and it’s out of port aransas, which is nice, but not in a big city, which is also nice. well, technically it’s in corpus chrisiti, which is a big city, but it’s on the outskirts of it in a community/almost town called flour bluff. the complex backs up on a bay, so we can go out and look at all the awesome water birds that migrate to the coast, like white pelicans and rosette spoonbills (i’ll put up some pictures eventually), but we’ve heard rumors that you can’t eat any of the fish from this bay, because of some factory dumping or something. ah, that reminds me of austin, where you just kinda knew not to eat the fish from town lake…

i feel like it is time for me to write something insightful again, but i am just so exhausted. moving sucks, and drains all of my energy. clio can’t decide if she likes our place or not, so she meows ALL NIGHT. i’m going to have to just lock her in the bathroom eventually. i get even more tired just thinking about all the crap i have to do for my classes, and i don’t even want to think about my completely nonexistant proposal right now. i feel like i just need to sleep for several days, then everything will be better. except that i’d be several more days behind in everything. damn it. on the upside, my lovely former roommate (sigh, so sad!) had a cocktail party last night, and everyone dressed up and looked so fancy! it was loads of fun, as you can see from these pictures:

nice shot of justin lookin’ buff, eve and i gettin’ cuddly, and shin lookin’ fancy

formal looking shot of me and justin, with shin peaking over our heads. and yes, i did dye my hair red, thanks for noticing (i know you didn’t!)

okay, i gotta go read some papers to figure out just what the heck it is that i’m studying for my masters, so i leave you (all 2 people, if that many, that read this- hi eve!) with the following picture from my austin collection:
it’s the shady grove dancing bear! the sign is funny (not sure if it is legible in this pic), because it says something like “bears only- children are not bears!” and shady grove has a fantastic pesto ranch dressing….yum!
