2 classes down- 1 to go

Our adventures in dorm living continues.

There are only 8 of us living in our entire dorm. Everyone (other than my roommate and I) are from Washington or Oregon and thus go home for the weekends.

This weekend we have had the entire building to ourselves. Sometimes creepy. Sometimes not so creepy.

Here are some of the adventures we have had so far-

Last weekend we drove to Seattle to visit my former roommate Amanda. Her and her hubby are living there for the summer. Perfect timing. She took us to Pikes Place Market.

Too many people. But so many delicious cherries. I bought 1 1/2 pounds and had the majority of them eaten before we left. Sooo yummy. Look at the yummy veggies.

I think I want to blow up this picture for my classroom.

Fun buskers singing Beatles songs.

Scary half mullet half dred headed guys making donuts. It was more entertaining watching him put them in the bag than it was eating them.

My cherries were so tasty... I was dreaming of more the rest of the weekend. So on Tuesday I drove to the nearest fruit stand to buy more. 7 pounds more. I still have a few left but not for long. I also bought a BOX of apples. It was only 74 cents a pound to buy them that way. How can you say no. Especially when they are 3 dollars a pound in the stores.

We have gone out to dinner as a cohort (the 10 people in our class) every Thursday for the last 2 weeks. Last week we went for half price appetizers at a place called Roadhouse. This Thursday we went to the Palace Cafe. They had 50 cent taco Thursdays.

Here is the 50 cent taco. I hope they don't charge much more than that on other days. It ain't worth it.

I had a bunch of free movie passes so we have been taking advantage of them. Last week we saw Hancock (2 thumbs up) and Get Smart (2 thumbs down). Yesterday we saw Momma Mia (2 thumbs up). I am excited for the X Files movie this weekend! Hopefully I can find someone in Utah or Idaho to go see it with me. I have a free ticket!!

I love you with your cherries...I just think of the issues I'd have to consume all those cherries, TMI, TMI! hehe! Glad you had fun in S-town! When are you heading home?

That taco looks sad. Hope you find some hot idaho potato farmer to go to the movies with you.
