- Are you in California now?
Yes, I am staying in Berkeley. I will be here until January 18th
- How can I reach you?
You can call me at my home phone number in Berkeley. You could also try calling my cell phone: 860-301-2508. My cell phone was broken and I grabbed it when I left to come here, with the idea that I might be able to disassmble it and repair it, or trade it in for a phone that takes pictures or something. the picture thing was causing gear lust. I didn't even grab my charger.
well, I was standing outside the Oakland airport waiting for my ride, when I suddenly became frustrated with my phone and started beating it savagely. It returned to life. So I have a working phone (that also acts as voicemail), but no way to charge it. so if you also have a Nokia and want to hang out with me, perhaps I could make some use of your charger while we hang out?
- Er... ok. so, how was your flight?
United Airlines is charging for food on the airplane! If you want a sandwich, you better have a ten bucks. What's more, all of the food options have meat in them. Contrast this with AirFrance, which serves good food (that would be good even off of an airplane) and wine. Plus the steward types on airfrance are much more polite and unlike United, do not give you the silent treatment. On the other hand, one of the people in my row (on United) started berating the steward about how crappy the inflight movie (Seabiscuit) was, as if he could do anything about it.
- Okaaaayyyy. So why aren't you in France anyway?
Christi has 60 hours of class per week + homework. apparently, she got somewhat behind when I was there before for just a few days. she called me up and said, "I love you dearly, but you can't come for a month. I have a week off around Christmas, can you come then?"
Alas, it was too late to do anything to my tickets, so, in order to avoid derailing christi's educational experience, i have come home instead. also, I really wanted to see you.
