Hypnosis and Immanuel prayer

Happy 2008!

Happy New Year! Yeah, I’m late for everything.

So I bet you’ve been wondering what’s been going on. Well, just pretend. I’ve been busily procrastinating on blogging, emailing, and doing writing of any kind, as usual. But also as usual, I have been working on my projects and thinking about others. I will get back to that in a later entry.

I went home to Texas for Christmas. My brother and sister also came, as usual, and my sister’s high school friend Kimberly, whom my family kind of adopted after graduation. It’s like an annual tradition. We all gather once a year. It was good. Each year I try to get a little better at balancing the time that I spend with my family and the time I spend doing my own stuff, and I think this year’s trip was a success (I consider it this year, even though it was last year). We watched movies, went shopping, decorated, and just hung around the house and talked. It was all pretty laid back.

Now I am back, and it is cold. We had a few warm days a while back, but now it is hovering around bitterly cold. My threshhold for bonechillingness is -8 degrees Celsius, which is between 18 and 17 Fahrenheit. On Saturday it was 7. I stayed indoors. Unfortunately our boilers decided to freeze on Sunday, so my apartment building has no heat. But with my space heater and extra clothes and blankets, I’ve managed to stay decently warm. They hope to have it fixed by the middle of the week.

I had a dream last night that I accidentally took our cat with me on a plane trip, and I had to figure out some way to get her back home. When I woke up I did some research, and it turns out you actually can ship cats. Continue reading
