Well, the good news is that I have an apartment now. Granted, I stood in a line for six hours yesterday to get said apartment, but at least now I have one. It wasn't all bad times, though. Yes, the hallway was crowded and I'm pretty sure we were breaking at least 10 different fire codes. Yes, it smelled like dorm rooms. And, sure, I didn't get to eat at all until about 4:30 (pm) due to the whole standing in line thing, but it wasn't all bad. I met some cool people in that line and, I swear we were best friends by the time we all got into the housing office. One of the guys behind me had this game called "Pass the Pigs" and we played that several times. Weirdest game ever, yet strangely fun. We even played for prizes, but I didn't win anything. First prize was the extra McDonalds french fries (gross- I was actually winning this round and then they announced the prize and I purposely kept shaking the pigs until I was sure to loose all my points from that round), second prize was this talking baby Shrek figurine and the third prize was a wrist laser pointer thing (happy meals- they don't do Barbies and Hotwheels appartently anymore). I also had a headache by the time we started playing for prizes and was losing interest in being social. Also that many people around me causes Vast Tensions inside of me and I was clenching my jaw so bad that by the time last night rolled around, I couldn't even open my mouth (remember those fun times how my jaw locks up really bad ever since I got my wisdom teeth out?). My mouth stil doesn't open very wide right now, but it opens enough that I can eat and talk and drink liquid and that is all tha matters.
Other fun things that happened in line yesterday (but that I had too much dignity to participate in- I know, party-pooper, right?) was a napkin eating contest. Dr. Suess, one of the three people that played Pigs with us (the game actually belongs to him) pulled out some napkins. The object of the game is to see who can get the napkin completely into their mouth the fastest without using their hands. Dr. Suess won. He says he has lots of practice and after watching him, I believe it. Some girl's mother video-taped it and is going to put it up on youtube. So, if you are really bored, you can try finding it. I have no idea how.
Getting the internet here is like playing musical chairs. Ever time the music stops, you have to find a new internet. Problem is, we don't know what the music is or how to make it keep going, so instead my roommates and I just keep switching to different internet connections. For some reason, the connection in our apartment is.... lacking to say the least. We've tried everything we can think of (short of going up to the housing office, but none of us actually want to put shoes on or call them, we're just all complaining about it instead), and it still doesn't work. So instead we are mooching off all the other Disney connections (it's all the same, really, and doesn't matter). But I can't get the connection that my two roommates are getting and they can't get the connection I am getting and it's "What signal are you using right now?!" ever 5 minutes until we are all able to get connected. So, I guess, just don't expect too much internet time from me for the next little while. We are still trying to get settled in, anyway, and there are all kinds of training things going on this week, so that keeps us quite busy and doesn't allow for a lot of down time.
Speaking of training things, it's time to leave for one right now.
