Two posts in two days! Do I dare spoil you???
Today was picture day at the school, so we all dressed pretty and pointed our whitey-whites at the camera. Now, I've never really been known to take a good school photo. I look horribly gawky in all my grade school photos. Last year was the first time in years that I had a head shot done (look right), and I was so impressed with the way it turned out, I still kick myself for not getting a small package! Anyway, there's no point to this announcement... Just thought I'd share with you.
I also had my picture taken at the DMV today. Yup, I finally got my state driver's licence. It was a bit of a production... I had to produce all of my documents (SS card, passport, VISA, MB licence). I nearly failed the vision test (that's probably an exaggeration), and I came close to failing the Q/A test (NOT an exaggeration!) due to my second guesses. Luckily, I saved myself the embarrassment. And really, in my own defence... Some of the questions were hard!! Did you know that if you unlawfully aide an underage minor in obtaining alcohol in NC, your licence is suspended for a year? I didn't!
I've noticed recently a few things around me that seem to be quite popular in style among some of my coworkers, and just southerners in general. I don't think I've seen so many polka-dots and monograms decorate the landscape (and citizens). Mailboxes, handbags, licence plates, you name it! I don't know... It's amusing, in a joyful, comforting way. :o)
The weather has finally turned fall-like. I was told that the temperature drop was a little early in the month -- it's not uncommon for it to still be in the 90's through September. But it's great to be about 10-15 degrees cooler now than when I first got her. My AC doesn't need to run 24 - 7, the humidity isn't asphyxiating, and it's even a little brisk (okay... 65) in the morning, which is refreshing. I'm looking forward to watching the leaves change color in the weeks to come. Okay, I admit. Fall is my favorite season.
Did I mention... Halloween stuff is already out down here! Which means I have to starting of a costume... I think... I should find out if we "do that" at the school. What do you think I should go as? A polar bear? A snowman? A randomly obscure Canadian celebrity? ;o) Suggestions are welcome!
