I got up at 4am Sunday to go get MACKENZIE at the Cleveland Airport. She'd been trying to get back to Ohio for almost a month; but I didn't know that until late Thursday night, as Eddie saw something from her mom on facebook. When I got back from school I messaged Tammy, asked her to have Mackenzie call me. She called me Friday at noon and within hours her plane ticket, ride to airport--amtrak, was all sorted. I got her on a red eye Saturday.

She's probably the only the person in the world I'd do anything for, yes over Edward. I've known her since she was a little kid--an original 'hood kid'. If you've read here for years and years, then you'd remember Tammy, Rob, and their 4 kids living a couple houses down. I love all 4 of their kids, but Mackenzie and I have always seemed to have a special bond. It must be our love of eating cookie dough.

Got her, then we went to go to surprise her sister, brother & Dad, and then her mom. I did indeed leave an apology note and gift card at that wrong address. Her dad's heart got an impromptu stress test! The best though is her sister's boyfriend. Someone is pounding on the door, waking you up, you ask who is it and you get giggling chicks saying "package for Dayle" and then "Oh, okay". We both were losing it in that hallway. Akin to drunken college antics, but more likely sleep deprivation as she'd been traveling for about 24 hours.



Went around today, as I didn't have classes, to try to get her DL switched and residency established. Have to go back to one place Friday because they closed today at noon. Dafuq??

Had my first Monday class this week at Kent's Trumball campus. Took 76 to 5 instead of the turnpike--which I'll only take if it's sleeting or snowing. Rte 5 is one of those roads that really keeps you on your toes. 2 lanes, rural in a lot of areas, so you need to watch for deer, there's no real area to pull over in most spots so if someone crossed the line you're sort of screwed too. Not to mention if it was slippery, you'd end up in a ditch, against a tree, or in a pond. DID go thru Center of the World. A city. Though, what if it IS the center of the world??

Kent Trumball campus has a whopping 4 building. Where I take classes is officially named the "Classroom Building". How much did they pay a think tank to come up with THAT name?? I walked in and I felt like I was walking into a high school. Just needed lockers in the hall. Even the desks were like school. I didn't take my book to class, but apparently I should have. 4 people had this professor before and knew to have their book. I kept looking online for this class, for information, a syllabus, etc and nada. Had they sent out something 'bring your book to class' I could have. 2 other students had theirs on order. Since 3 of us---only 7 in class--didn't have our books we got out early. Massive amount of work for that class that I would've loved to start um, last week? Even reading chapter 1 didn't prepare me for this. Ugh.

Not feeling well AT ALL. Been too much on the go go go. Need to either run a couple errands tomorrow after class, or run them Friday morning when I take Mackenzie on her errands. Then I AM IN for the weekend. Phone off, homework, homework, homework. Will start with Monday's class work, then I'll have 3 days of notes to transcribe for 2 classes, then reading for my other 3. And I'll stay warm and hydrated.

What's up with people dying from the flu?? Dafuq. 100 years after the Spanish Flu epidemic. The flu can fluck off. Think I have cold? Dunno. Might be the flu, thought of seeing the doctor for tamiflu, but it was too late before I thought of that---IF I have the flu. Have to start it within 24-36 hours. KNOW I have a rib cage dysfunction cuz I felt it pop out of place today when I twisted myself to get Minnow out from under an exam room chair at the vet, cuz the tech didn't understand me saying to put Minnow under the towel after he weighed him. He put him on the floor. Under the towel, on the floor, sound the same, right? Nope. Minnow likes to be under a towel and plays hide and go fuck yourself. They even put him under a towel after his dental surgery so he 'wasn't there'. Both Minnow and Melon's mouths are healing very nicely.

Now to watch a short something on youtube before bed. The past month or so I've gotten into watching mountaineering videos. No, I have absolutely no idea. No interest in ever doing such a thing. I think Mt. Everest, at this point, is sort of almost a tourist attraction--though obviously a deadly one. I watch mountaineering videos about climbers on other mountains, legendary climbers, unfathomable situations that some people survive, and I'm watching, transfixed, thinking in the back of my head 'how did I get fascinated with this?' No idea!

Oh, Mackenzie and I went to Luigi's today for lunch and it was AWESOME!! It's amazing what you can get when you don't go to a buffay! Delicious bread---I opened a butter packet and it was EMPTY. Mackenzie said that had to be good luck and I should keep it, so I have that. Whoever opened a thing of butter at a restaurant and got nada? She got a pizza and I got a sub. We both got salad but she got cheese on hers and it was like cheese mountain.

Hmmm....should go somewhere different for lunch Friday, but damn, I could go back there again! Nah, will figure some other place out. Ah, already got it! I think. I'm off to youtube and mountaineering before bed.
