brief newsbreak.

ok, four grants are breathing down my neck this week, so just a lickity-split update from me today. (because really, i know you are all just breathless with anticipation to know what is going on in the life of kate! this is crucial information, you must know! right now! well, magnanimously charitable cherub that i am, i will humor you.)

- went to a good friend from home's wedding this weekend. did not catch the bouquet, as there was no bouquet throwing. phew.

- i could be mistaken about there being no bouquet throwing, though, as BoyCat and i left around 11:30 when my ability to maintain my own balance became noticably impaired. 4 1/2 glasses of wine + not very much food + allergy meds = really drunk kate.

- we went to the cheese castle on the way home, and bought entirely too much cheese for people vacating their apartment in 2 1/2 weeks. but you know what's sad? we'll eat it all with time to spare.

- i don't even want to mention this for fear of jinxing it, but...oh my gosh...we put a hold on an apartment this weekend! we are sending our applications today, and hopefully everything will be approved and whatnot by wednesday or thursday. i am beside myself with nervous energy. like, the application jammed in the fax machine when i first tried to send it half an hour ago, and i almost had a breakdown.

- this last one bears repeating. we (almost) have an apartment!!! i just used three exclamation points, people, this is serious!

keep your fingers crossed for us, please...

At the last wedding I went to, I just didn't get up for the bouquet toss. There are some things that make me very uncomfortable. That is one of them.
