I forgot a lot of the things that I wanted to include in the last post. but it’s a good thing, because thanks to my friend Marc, I’ve had a chance to research the program I mentioned in the last post, and I’ve been thoroughly dissuaded. Worst case scenario: if I don’t get into Antioch, I can fall back on the old plan of finding out from Eastern Illinois U. what I will need to earn certification to teach at the high school level. I can always apply to MFA programs later, maybe after I’ve done some more writing on my own time.
I got my tickets to California in the mail the other day. I’m going out for the World Service Conference, but I will stay to visit with my brother and his family. It’ll be about two weeks total, right at the very end of the semester. After that, I can start my new life, whatever that might be.
I also got a letter from my lawyer. he says that it’s going to cost a little under four hundred bucks to keep my driving record clean. probably worth it, I think. and he’s doing this one pro-bono. and here we all thought I was done with the nude modelling 😉
I checked out another one of those 9-11 conspiracy videos today. Fuck, it makes me sick. I fantasize about going underground and hunting some of these evil bitches down. can I say that? I guess I’ll just have to accept the idea that the FBI/CIA/NSA is going to be monitoring me for the rest of my natural life. that’s fine, at least that means I’ll have a dedicated audience 😉
also, I’ve never mentioned that I read a really interesting book by the guy who draws Dilbert, Scott Adams. It’s called God’s Debris…give it a shot.
anyway…I’m headed back to try to help out at the coffee shop. they’re installing new cabinets/countertops behind the bar, and part of my job is to show up and help them move all the crap back to where it was. I’m trembling with excitement.
