Zippidee Doo Dah

The grant is done.  I have confirmation from the federal system.  I feel like it went in with a whimper instead of a bang.  The submit button should play fun music afterwards.  Look people this is as close I will ever get to writing a novel.  My collected works will be a boatload of grants.

Pad thai for dinner last night and leftovers for lunch today.  I might finally be over it.  We saw 27 Dresses and it was better than I thought it would be.  I didn't think it would suck.  It followed the typical romantic comedy formula but has some extra cuteness thrown in.  Afterwards we went to B*st Buy and I got new headphones.  I hate the ones that go in your ears or the ones that wrap around the back of your head.  These are squishy and should be comfortable.  I have a trip coming up next week and need my music to be ready.  Which reminds me, if you were planning on sending me any books you should do so before my flight on Wednesday.  Otherwise I will take them on my flight at the end of the month.
