Saturday Miscellany

Whee! I’m wear­ing shorts that I could­n’t get into for the last two summers!

I don’t know why I kept them, to be hon­est. But I did, and I’m wear­ing them today. There’s just a tad tighter in the waist than I’d real­ly pre­fer, but then I usu­al­ly wear my cloth­ing so loose that it hard­ly touch­es me anywhere.

I final­ly changed to new con­tacts today, too. I had­n’t kept up with how long I’d been wear­ing them, and they’re dis­pos­ables. Since I had sor­ta fall­en off wear­ing them, it did­n’t seem like very long. But the new ones feel SO good in com­par­i­son, that obvi­ous­ly it was time to do it.

I made tuna sal­ad yes­ter­day. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, my body will no longer tol­er­ate even the tiny amount of onion that I put in the sal­ad, so I had hor­rif­ic cramps soon after hav­ing my sand­wich. But it tastes so GOOD!

sam­bear and shad­owkatt are return­ing with­out anoth­er couch. It’s a sleep­er sofa, and the mus­cle on hand at joyeuse13’s home at the moment isn’t suf­fi­cient to get it out of the house and into the truck. We have mar­velous neigh­bors to help on this end, but that does­n’t help over there. We’ll have to arrange a ren­dezvous with heavy lifters to get the sleep­er sofa here.

I’m a col­lege stu­dent, so this head­line got my atten­tion: Beware of ‘stealth’ col­lege costs: SAT tutors, cam­pus vis­its add thou­sands to the bill

HA! They’re talk­ing about peo­ple spend­ing $7k to “pre­pare” their son to take the SAT, and $2k for a “tutor” to take the boy through the appli­ca­tion process.

The SAT is sup­posed to mea­sure what you’re learned through­out your time in school. And if you can’t man­age to nav­i­gate the appli­ca­tion process, how the hell are you going to man­age to deal with the bureau­cra­cy that per­vades acad­e­mia anyway?
