Yay. I am officially going to Greece next summer. The parents had a change of heart, there was still plenty of space left, and the tour group’s website suddenly started working again. It’s like the planets lining up for some rare celestial happening.

As if that were not enough, I got my permit today, too. Third trip to the DMV, they were finally open. I got one question wrong on the test. My picture for the State ID isn’t the greatest, but I’ve never been terribly photogenic.

The only problem with days like these is that you know tomorrow is probably going to be worse.

I’m listening to “Pretty Girl,” by Sugarcult. Nothing terribly special, but the lyrics are pleasing. Especially that one great line: “She’s beautiful as usual, with bruises on her ego….”

My ears have a tendancy to heat up. I don’t know why. Usually it’s when I’m tired, but some other times. In the ears the blood vessels are close to the surface, and are spread out, so blood is supposed to be able to cool well there. Elephants make the best use of this, with their large ears and warm habitat. And for some reason when I’m tired my ears start burning up. Even stranger, it’s usually only one of them. Right now it’s the left one, but I’m pretty sure the right one does it sometimes, too. I have no clue what could be causing this.
