OH MY GOD - bless the veterans' day!!!
i haven't had veterans' day off in, uh, like forever or something. who gives that day off?
SCHOOL, that's who!
and tuesday is my super-long day at school too. leave at 7 a.m. and don't get home until at least 7 p.m. so for a holiday to fall on a tuesday is a special gift.
today i had to wake up early to drive the turtle to its new home in hollywood... he gets to live in a pond there. he was super feisty on the drive and as i was doing the hand-off, so i think he's been eating and he'll have a good life in a pond full of fish and other turtles. :)
i took sebastian with me. went through a drive-thru to get breakfast. drive-thrus make sebastian super excited... i have a stash of treats in the truck to give him when i run through to get a coffee or something because otherwise he basically tries to launch himself through the window and into the restaurant. apparently it's something to do with his puppyhood and getting treats at the entrance drive-through gate thing at a local park.
i dunno how many dogs do this, but sebastian often shows his excitement in a really icky way:
ain't no fakin' that he's excited, right? he's looking camera left at the egg & cheese sandwich on my lap. lord.
i made an agreement with sebastian that i would share my sandwich if he would just PUT IT AWAY. it didn't work. :(
then i came home and...... NAPPED. and then proceeded to accomplish nearly nothing. but i feel nice! this was the best tuesday i've had this semester. and no class til 4 p.m. tomorrow. yaaaaaaaay!
