A very merry unmarriage to you?

...That sounds terrible. There is no way to make that sound okay at all.

Best of luck, dude.

So apparently military spouses are eligible for in-state tuition and nobody told me until, oh, just now. I just may be able to save myself $5k a year. That would be HUGE. I'm still going to go forth with my NH state residency anyway so RI doesn't chase me for taxes, but this is great news.

The gist I got is that it's a small movement, not the actual government, but again, reading on the phone and a bit distracted and in transit at the moment. Maybe Cain can give more insight.

Well, then.

I can't really think of anything to say, other than, um, ow.

So I get to campus, and the professor I need to speak with isn't even in his office. Ugh. However, I can tell that he is a man of distinction, as he has a fake mustache tacked on his door.

Meeting with the history department today at UNH to discuss funding my education with some free monies. I'm a bit nervous. It's cold outside, and I have to take public transportation, so I'm not really "dressing up" but trying to not look like a slob, either. I guess I should put makeup on at the very least. Not that I feel I need it because I never really wear it even in my 30s, but um...I'm in my 30s, I should probably look like I tried to be put together for this.

I will be in on Thursday, so that sounds promising.

Shit, that's right. I would trust him. Hopefully he'll see this.

For those that are bored, and want to help me win $500 worth of linen, go vote for me here:

You need an account, or multiple accounts if you're feeling generous. You can vote once per 24 hours.

Gah, he was the only PD spag from Chi-town, wasn't he?

So, I am told that we are now in our 20th straight year of drought.





I will never understand how droughts can exist in the fucking desert. I thought that was the point?

A week from today, I start my 30 hour train ride to Kansas City. Bizarre. I'm INSANE.

Why are you going to the middle of the US?
Isn't that where despair, boredom, and tornadoes are born?

Squid- knows nothing of these places

Doing presentations on historical clothing at a convention in Independence, the next city over. Yes, it's early tornado season, but they're still getting snow so we should be okay.

Also: Barbecue.

The first half of the ride is going to be filled with lovely scenery of the Appalachians, large Eastern cities, and a layover in Chicago.

...Then I cross the Mississippi and expect to see lots of corn.

I'm going to be laid over in Chicago twice on my train ride, each for about 6 hours give or take train delays. I've never been to Chicago, and I'm allowed to check my bag and take in what I can in the area. I know the Building Formerly Known As The Sears Tower isn't far from Union Station, but other than that, I have no idea. I'm open to suggestions, bearing these tidbits in mind:

-I'm on a budget, think college travel budget.
-I'm on a diet, but I may have to splurge for a proper piece of deep dish.
-I'm on a schedule.

I hear that Union Station is an impressive piece of architecture from the days of old school rail travel, so I anticipate to be spending some time just wandering around inside, because that's what I do. But I definitely want to get out and walk around the city for what it's worth. My first layover is next Thursday from about 8:45am to 3pm, and my second layover is Monday the 28th from 3:15pm-9:30pm.
