I guess the summer has finally fully started for me. I am in the middle of my first week of class, and it's going pretty well so far. That is to say, nothing much really happens during the first week. I'll let you know how things go when I actually start getting real homework.

I've been working a lot since I got to Kirksville, trying to fill up my empty hours as well as bolster the bank account. Unfortunately, the latter goal may be a bit counterproductive. When I work more, I drive more, which causes one's tires to go flat and one's engine to start making funny noises. I'm having the noises checked out tomorrow, and hopefully it will only be a minor problem.

I hit a bird with my car the other day. Has this ever actually happened to anybody? They are usually so nimble at getting out of the way, but this one apparently was not as talented as its brethren.

I've hit a bird with my car before, I think. I felt mean after, even though it really wasn't my fault.

This is weird. Steve ALWAYS has to slam on his brakes for birds. It's like they don't see his car. I always thought he was imagining things, but it happens when I'm driving his car too. They fly in front of the car with reckless abandon and only my cat-like reflexes can save them.

Way to go, murderer.

He just reminded me that he actually hit a hawk while driving down the highway one time. I really don't think THAT has ever happened to anyone before!

Perhaps you should slow down!

I'm glad to have your blog to read again. I must tell you that I saw the word palaver in a book I was reading, and I felt so smart since I knew what it meant. Hope the car trouble turns out to be minor. I have never hit a bird even though there were some close calls. Keep running.
