The weekend has been packed full, but of fun and games instead of changeovers, so it’s all good.
Most of the UConnites ventured back to school, so the Festival is a bit more empty now. I woke up Saturday morning very puzzled because someone was in my room (Katie-Bug had moved into another room, so I was confused), but it was just Ali. She’d come to say goodbye, which made me very happy, and bestowed upon me the tricky mission of taking care of Thumbs, and making sure he doesn’t drink too much.
Carleton also left that day (I’m on the ancient beast of a prop shop computer), which made me sad, but we got to hang out a bit before he left. We even finally beat Nitrous Oxide on normal, so that sort of completed the summer. He’ll be back for this coming strike anyhow, so it won’t be so bad.
That night, us remaining folk had a Slumber Party in Ripley Apartment, complete with Halloween and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and a bit of Silent Hill 2 thrown in for good measure. It opened up a whole new door of opportunity for scaring the bejeezus out of Sara.
Sunday, we bid farewell to LambChops, and promptly went on a shopping trip. As everyone is gone and I’ll have little to do this week, I decided to take up knitting (after a quick lesson from Katie Bug, I’m on my way to a new scarf, made of llama wool to honor Ian, and so that I can wear it in the winter when Jeff wears his alpaca jacket, and we can match, or something). Shopping would have been fun, but I didn’t realize that Thumbs was a for-real shopper, and had to go into EVERY SINGLE STORE just to find a stupid sweatshirt.
Anyway, there was dinner and icecream and a bonfire and fun times the rest of the evening. Marshmallows and everything.
Agenda for the week: knit, rest, research, and prepare for the going-home. My brother will be visiting soon! Yea!
