State of AndiLand

Wasn't that a fantastic guest post? I *heart* Kim Powers and his super-talent. Now I'm going to tarnish the blog with my own endeavors. Nothing like a quick list o'crap to keep the quality up. Tongue firmly in cheek!

So what's been shaking in AndiLand you ask? Well....

--Daisy got a bad case of the itchies on Monday, by Tuesday I was desperate for her to stop itching, so I dropped her off at the vet. As it turns out, she has an allergy to to fleas, and the fleas have seen a resurgence since the cool weather hit. Now she's on meds to oust the fleas, and she's taking antihistamines. All that really means is that she's been drunk/hungover/goggly-eyed/asleep on my leg since Tuesday.

--I was chosen for a virtual reference internship, which only means that since I'm already working from home, I have to log into a messenger program and answer questions for confused students from 11-1 on Thursdays. And I get experience to put on my resume! Win-win situation.

--I was thinking of renting a house down the street from my mom, with a fenced yard, in the neighborhood where I really like to walk. Then I came to my senses and decided to pay off my credit card.

--I have employment for the summer! Two classes in the first session, two in the second.

--Morgan Spurlock, director of Super Size Me and the FX show 30 Days, is going to be speaking at UNT! I just might have to go.

--I voted on Monday. Absentee. I haven't gotten all my residence stuff moved over from NC yet. Shhhh!

--In reading news, I've started my fourth RIP III book: Evernight, by Claudia Gray. I'm not very far in, but so far it seems like a winner! I'm also diving into Love and Biology at the Center of the Universe for Jennie Shortbridge's blog tour. Watch for her on November 12th!

--And if you have a moment, head on over to Unlikely Activist to read about and how you can help their new Repower America ads find a broader audience.


  1. Poor Daisy! Itches are no fun! I'm glad all is going well for you though! :-)


  2. Thanks, Lezlie! She's sleeping peacefully curled up against my leg as we speak. We only did 1 and a half antihistamines this morning in an attempt to keep her from being to goggly-eyed. lol

  3. Ooh, Morgan Spurlock - I bet that would be interesting! I really enjoy his show on FX.

    Glad to hear Daisy is over the itchies. :)

  4. Now... to find a way to pose as a student and ask the most pointless questions in the whole universe. Congratulations.

  5. Thanks, Lesley! I just love Morgan Spurlock. I hope I get to go!

    LOL, I love the way your mind works, Stu.

  6. Poor Daisy - how's she doing now?

    I just got my voter registration card today - yay! I was getting a bit worried there :)

  7. I hope Daisy starts feeling better soon! Itchies are no fun.

    Glad you had some good job news. That's always great!
