So. I graduated from NYU last week and moved back home. In the weeks time, I have:

Adopted a kitten.
Got a job.
Adopted a second kitten.
Bought a car.

The nice thing about the car is that the actual car that I bought wasn't ready to drive off the lot, so they gave me a Mitsubishi Eclipse as a loaner. What? It is so sweet a ride, I don't even know how to describe it. They should have given me a clunker, so I'd be impressed when I had to trade it back in for my actual car.

Oh well. Enjoying it while I can.

Kittens. Kittens playing is so adorable I don't even...

Today was a day to remember and, as such, I am recording it here on lj. It's not really coherent, since I've been up for so long, but it's mostly for my personal accounting anyway.

So my day started at 5:30am, which is somewhat ridiculous for me, when I usually wake up at 11. I then went to work for the next 13 hours and 15 minutes. Nothing interesting happened, but I had a great discussion with Jim about the awesome that is the Big Bang Theory TV show. Also, I got free breakfast and lunch and snacks. It was the second day of the Singularity Symposium and then Mario Batali, which I was on, and Stacy London, which I was not. And I took home pita chips and apples.
Then I came home and had a fun time with Maddie and Sam and Ellie. Nothing of particular interest, other than we played guitar hero and then Maddie, Sam and I had a stairwell discussion of epic geekiness.
The most interesting part of the day occurred after I left Maddie downstairs to wait for the Safe Ride. I got on the elevator by myself and hit 6, while thinking to myself, 'how weird would it be to just take the elevator down to the first floor and, instead of getting off, just wait in the elevator until someone came along to ride it up. They wouldn't be expecting you and vice versa'. This thought occupied me all the way to my room, where the first thing I notice is that someone turned the deadbolt so the door was open. I went in thinking, 'I wonder if someone went somewhere and didn't want to take their keys'. Then I go in my room where I am forced to stop abruptly. Someone has changed our room completely and brought in furniture, including two mini-fridges. I am ashamed to say my first thought was that someone had their parents bring stuff, even though it is implausible, as it is a month into the school year. Then I thought someone knew had moved in, but finally, I realized, "I'm not in my room". I go back and look and the door and, sure enough, I was in 510, as opposed to 610, where I actually live. The girl who got on the elevator as I was getting off was obviously going up, a fact I didn't notice, and just got off on the fifth instead of sixth floor.

It was a terribly surreal experience.

AND P.S.

TALKING TO STRANGERS (REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOUR PARENTS HAVE TOLD YOU, IS A GOOD THING)

I WAS IN THE BACK, AND TALKING TO AN EMPLOYEE AT THE APPLE STORE ABOUT HOW PRETTY AND SMALL ELIZA DUSHKU WAS AS SHE PASSED RIGHT BY, AND ASKED IF THERE WAS GOING TO BE A Q&A SECTION, AND WHEN THERE WAS, SHE WAVED ME TO THE FRONT SO I COULD ASK IT. THEN I ASKED THE FOX 5 NEWS GUY WHEN THIS WAS GOING TO SHOW, AND HE ASKED IF HE COULD INTERVIEW ME, WHICH HE DID (MEANING I COULD BE ON THE NEWS). AND THEN, BY TALKING TO ANOTHER STRANGER, I ENDED UP GETTING A PICTURE WITH JOSS WHEDON!!!!

Was amazing. I have been wanting to see it for the past month, but it only came out in Vegas today.

I wanted to see it because a.) Lee Pace was in it. And I love me some Lee Pace. and b.) it looked like a good movie. kind of like Pan's Labyrinth, which was good.

I loved it. It was not only visually stunning (and I'm not just talking about Lee in some eyeliner), but the storyline was very good. And Alexandria was adorable.

Go see it. I know I am planning on buying it if it comes out on DVD.
