It will be another few semesters before I raise my cumulative GPA enough to get free money for school. I guess dropping out without dropping all my classes wasn’t such a hot idea; but I was young, drunk, and high. <shrug> C’est la vie. Live and learn.
Free Money status: postponed indefinatly
I strolled into class the other day, and WillTeachFrench girl was speaking to her punked out friend with her back to the door.
“Do you think it’s cheating on your boyfriend if you kiss another girl?” WTFg asked.
“Most assuredly,” I reply.
WTFg spun around and practically screeched, “What are you doing here?!”
“I do have a class in this room,” I respond. “In fact, it will be starting in fifteen minutes.”
It seems that WTFg went out to a gay club and got tanked. She also ended up making out with some bisexual friend of hers while at the club, and somehow ended up naked in bed with said friend and some guy. So say, nothing happened and all they did was talk. Heh… I was your age once, sweetheart. Even people my age don’t just strip down and jump into bed to shoot the shit. You, my dear, are busted. I think finding out about a little kissing is the least of your worries insofar as what your little boyfriend might discover.

I still haven’t heard anything from TV girl. The week following my last update (where TVg was still suffering from bronchitis), I called her three times. Once I got the voicemail, and the next two I actually talked to her. The conversations were brief. They basically consisted of the standard "how are you" exchange followed by TVg begging off, saying that she was busy doing 'something'. Both times she claimed she would return the call later, but never did.
A shame, really... She was a bit older than most of the girls I run across on campus, and seemed to have her shit together. She also liked to dance. Double plus good in my book. Things seemed to be going so well that I even fixed the valve on the toilet in my 'ladies room' with the intention of inviting her over for dinner one night. I guess I’ll have to find someone else for the next Skyliners show.

Thankfully, LegForDays girl is still on the radar. I need to follow up with her on wether she she will be going to Jazz Fest in New Orleans, and on what days. If she’s up for it, I’ll find a place to stay out there and hit the fest with her. I'm thinking it shouldn't be a problem, seeing as how she asked me if I planned on going to Jazz Fest and on what days I would be there.
In fact, I have to call her to find out what we did in class yesterday so I can be prepared for class on Thursday.
LFDg status: currently under assessment
I have cleared things at work for taking a leave of absence next year to spend a summer semester in Belgium. All I need to do now is get my hands on that grant money from CODOFIL. I have assurances from a tenured professor that she can get it for me based on my grades since returning to school, irregardless of my cumulative GPA. I’ll believe it when I have the acceptance letter in my hand.
Summer in Belgium status: pending
I thought of signing up to be a translator/guide for Festival International, but I have to attend the christening of a close friend’s new daughter that weekend. I am also going to be on-call for work. I’ll likely attend the festival and practice my questionable French skills; just not in any official capacity.
Diplomat status: rogue agent
Life's been pretty boring these last few weeks. I really need to find some way to liven things up so I have something to tell my imaginary internet friends.
