    Happy Birthday, Wilde woman. I hope your graduate studies are going well. We miss you around here.

    Thanks. I'm really praying nothing goes wrong with the vet/quarantine/getting to the airport process. A lot of the trains are down, including the express trains going to the airport. >.< So, provided nothing goes horribly wrong, I'm out of here on April 10th. Really never thought I wouldn't regret getting that ticket. I'm so thankful I did now.

    Oh no! Feel better!! Winter is so bad for getting sick sometimes. If it doesn't get cold enough, all the germs stick around, then when it's cold and everyone's huddled inside they get each other sick. Some of the discussion was a bit beyond me, but I'm looking forward to you coming back. Rest up though!
