For some strange reason I find myself loving dandelions this year. It’s quite strange. Maybe it’s part of my loving-summer-because-winter-was-sooooooo-long thing, and I’m longing for flowers to come out in abundance, only….the only flowers out, as of yet, are dandelions, therefore I love them?! I’m not sure. But today was a happy day! I found a lilac bush on campus that is actually blooming ahead of all the rest! I am one HAPPY girl! I was so hoping for a few bouquets of lilacs before going back to MDP.
The highlight of my day was most definitely talking to my adopted little French sister online today!!! I was so happy when “Eva has signed in” popped up in the corner of my screen. I love MSN! It was good to talk to her. I miss her 😦
I make a terrible chaser-downer. A student driver car passed me as I was leaving town. HEY! We have a shortage of those around here, and I think my little brother is wanting one! So I wheeled the car around and raced back into town. Ah HA! I could see it up ahead of me. Waaaay ahead of me. But HA, it got stopped by a red light. I gave an evil laugh and eased up on the gas pedal a little. The light turned green, and it crossed the intersection as I was approaching. Then the light turned red. HEY!!! You can turn red to stop him, but not me, ya hear?! Oh, wait, lights don’t have ears. ANYWAY … Changed plans and made a quick right hand turn. He can take main street, and I’ll take the back streets. Met up with main street again, just in time to see him turn off on a side road. Turned down the same road. Ha! Just me and him. I was on his bumper in seconds. But … slight problem … the phone number I need is on the side of his car. And I can’t read that from behind him. And I can’t pass him, ’cause we’re in town. He decided to turn right, as I was contemplating this dilemma. Ah HA! I’ll pull up beside him and turn left! (is that legal? hope it is, ’cause I did it) Got the number as we each turned our opposite directions. Only…now I was heading out the wrong end of town. Did another U-turn. Ooops. I was on his tail again! I wonder if he’s getting nervous with me tailing him like this? Probably not. I don’t think dangerous people generally drive mini-vans!
