in other news, my growing hand is slowly shrinking. i left it outside in a dish over the weekend. one weird thing though is when it shrinks, the fingers are spread out. originally when i first got the magical growing hand, the fingers were all closed together. the hand still feels damp. once it's completely dry, i think it'll go back to its original size. right now it's still a little bit bigger than when i first got it. if it had some hair on it, it could pass for a decent monkey's paw.
and joel oliveira left his san diego home for the last time today, driving cross country back to boston. i regret that i wasn't fired the past few weeks, so that i could have the free time to take a plane to san diego and drive back with joel. he's doing what i plan on doing for a potential vacation next year! i hope he takes a lot of photos on his tour of america.
i finally returned my library books tonight. unfortunately it was veteran's day observance so the library was closed. i just throw my books through slot of the book return collection bin. i still owe the library a few dollars in overdue fines. i hate having an outstanding debt.
after work i went to the city sports in harvard square to look for some running pants. i must've spent at least 30 minutes browsing the selection before finally deciding on a pair. they cost a fortune! i hope they're worth it. i plan on taking them out for a spin sometime this week.
another plane crashed in new york city this morning. when i first heard, i thought, "oh, here we go again." i breathed a sigh of relief when they said it wasn't terrorist related though. it's come to a point in our society when people are actually relieved when a plane crashes for some sort of engine malfunction and not because of any terrorist activity.
