I did something very stupid today. I went and got all of my hair chopped off. Now, normally I love me with short hair, but I really hate how it looks right now, and right before the wedding and everything. I have never cried over a haircut before, I mean, come on, it's just hair, it grows back. But I came home this afternoon and just cried and cried. I woke Zeb up and then he couldn't get back to sleep for a long time and only ended up getting 4 hours of sleep today. I felt bad. I hope that in a couple days I will decide that I like it. We'll see. I don't know why I do silly things like that. I mean, I should have known that it wouldn't look good. But then, I hated my hair the way it was too, so I guess it doesn't really matter. I think maybe I'm not to get my hair cut in Glen Burnie, cause I've yet to get a good haircut here.

I've started glancing through jobs again, although I really need to devote more time and effort to that again. All the ones I found today (only 3, I didn't really spend long looking) are on the opposite side of DC and I really don't want to have to make that commute every day. I may have to though. I should be able to find one in Baltimore though. We'll see.

I'm really excited about the wedding....bad haircut aside. I can't believe in barely over a week I'll be married. It's happened so fast. But it's right. Nothing has ever felt this right. Zeb is the most wonderful guy I've ever known and I can't believe he's with me.

This weekend is going to be a blast too. We're headed down to JC for the annual SE meetup. While all meetups are great, this one has special meaning. This is the meetup at which Zeb and I met last year. It's also huge. I think there's something like 40 people coming...way crazy. For us the festivities basically start tomorrow, as we have a couple playgrounders flying in to drive down with us. Both of them (Shadow and Midnight Son) are playgrounders that I've not met yet, so I'm really excited to. Especially since they would both be rather high on my list of 'Playgrounders I would like to meet.' Speaking of...I suppose I should go straighten up...put sheets on the other guest bed, and all that jazz.

It has been very busy lately. Hmm...this sounds familiar. You'd think with school done, I'd be a bit less busy, but I don't think I am. Granted, school isn't exactly over. I still haven't turned in my final versions of my thesis and I have to revise my presentation for publication and my summer classes apparently.

I feel calm though. For the most part. I've been doing a lot of wedding prep. Have a list the length of my arm of things still to get done, but it's all coming together well. I do have to wonder though...what were Alison and I thinking? We have this plan to mosaic vases for candle holders for the centerpieces for the tables for both of our weddings. I've started. I've made 9. Of 60. These 9 have been of the smallest size too. They are time consuming and tedious, but beautiful. My flowers are all done. They're beautiful. Really, I think this wedding is going to be just perfect. Have I mentioned what dorks Jerry and I are? We're going to attack the gazebo and play kubb at the wedding. *laughs*

In other has rained every day since I have been in South Dakota. May broke the record for the wettest month in Rapid City in history. It was previously set in 1905. And the poor dogs. There is thunder all the time and they get so scared and so nervous.

I've gotten back into WoW with a vengeance. Man have I missed that game. It's fun and addicting and I have no time to play except from like midnight to 2 am, but am expected to be places with grandma at 8 because she's one of those insane morning people and it's wearying.

Mom and I are getting along well this trip, for the most part. We have our fights, as usual, but there seem to be less of them than usual. It's been nice. And it's nice having Aaron here. It was really cool that his break fell at the same time as I would be here. We're having fun together, but he's been sick.
