Leaving for NY tomorrow. Two days in the city with امي, then it's group flight time! Party-hardy. Ten hours. With total strangers that I'm to bond with and make insta!friends. (Just add hot water?)
Think I can shove my inner nerd down and be a normal human being for at least a few hours? Or should I head the words of Tutor Turtle? Folks what do dis... yeah, yeah, we know. Tutor Turtle obviously never had to make bffs with the cool kids. (Oh, please oh please let there be a sci-fi geek. Please oh please.)
We shall see if retail really is for suckas.
In the meantime:
Places I Must Drag My Mother To In NY
- Vegan joint / Strand
- Camera store (...I really need to do research on that. Oops.)
- A wave to La MaMa?
- Last minute items?
PS to Self: Don't forget your black folder, doofus. You know, the one with your passport and Visa and money? That could come in handy.
catherine - a twenty-year-old college student obsessed with vienna teng and stargate: atlantis - embarks on scholarly adventure to the holy (or holey) land, where she shall study confusing languages, discuss complicated politics and - per her father's wishes - ride at least one dromedary.
(there may or may not be a photograph involved and you may or may not get to see it.)
with any luck, she shall return to the states a more erudite (see what i did there?) individual, well versed in the ways of the arabic and the hebrew(z). with luck, skill, and maybe a god-sent plan, she will not return to the states completely broke.
(she promises to count her shekels dutifully, and not pay retail.)
