Wheeeeee... another hurricane incoming. But too far west of here to bother closing the school for like they did for Katrina.

Earlier today, I wanted more than anything else to be drinking Twisted Russians in that cocktail bar in Exeter. Excellent, homesick. But not for home home. Elsewhere in England home. I think I want cold. That's definitely what I miss the most. The cold. Waking up of a morning and needing to put a jumper on.

The artificial cold of air conditioning isn't the same. And when you wake up, you have to decide how hot the day's going to be and how little to wear, or how thin the fabric needs to be to get through the day.

Sooooo... I've got a few options. None of which involve me being able to stay in school for the rest of this semester, unfortunately. I have an appointment on Monday morning to talk to the International Office about a possible scholarship for next semester, which would be nice if I qualify.

But, basically, it looks like I'm going to have drop out or defer or something for the rest of this semester before my next fee is due (October 1st.. good timing). But then there's the matter of when I go back home. Once you drop out, you have 60 days to leave the country, so I'd have to leave about late November time. I could leave earlier, sure, but I don't want to really leave my roommate in the lurch with regard to rent. Plus I want to be here for Hallowe'en. Because quite frankly, that kicks ass over here. Thanksgiving would also be nice because I enjoyed that back in 2003. Muchos food. :)

Eh, we'll see. Maybe I'll be back before my parents move. That would be shiny.

mmmmmmm...twisted Russians....

I've been on the French Martinis all summer, on account of it having been too hot for the creamy cinnammony goodness that is the twisted Russian.

But it's getting to that nippy time of year so the Russians will be back.

You're welcome to come down here for a bit when you get back. And at least you'll be back in the UK for the Christmas special...
