Justin and Olaina are going to become my neighbors. In the sense that they will be less than 25 miles away. Justin will be attending UCLA Harbor for his residency.
I was wishing with all my might that Justin would get to San Francisco. That is the program he is excited about. But deep down, I wish they don’t move too far away.
Being somewhat local still is a good thing. They won’t have to make new friends all over again because old friends are still close enough.
Oh. This is just awesome, AWESOME news!
Convo Olaina and I had:
Me: I think of it this way. I’m weird. I KNOW I’m weird. Other people are just too normal to understand all this and therefore they’re weird to me.
Olaina: So. You’re weird…
Olaina: And I’m weird. So, we’re weird.
Me: That’s why we get along so well.
The driver’s side car door handle broke off last week on my car after Brandon spent the weekend installing the new handles on the inside of the two front doors. Oh, and the “Check Engine” light just now came on. Murphy’s Law, really. Brandon thinks we might consider buying me a new car before we have to sink a lot more money into Merlin.
I enjoyed 8 years of his 12-year life. Merlin has been an excellent car for me after all I’ve put him through. Perhaps it is time we retire him. Who knows. We’ll talk about this more later on.
