Strange: Bearded man at the DMV with a gray parrot on his shoulder, yelling "I bet you like women too, you big slut!" as he stormed out.
Grueling: Distilling an 83-minute discussion with a rock band into an 800-word feature for The Onion.
Spontaneous: Taking a four-day road trip to California.
Surprising: Lunch with the Ex went better than expected.
Risky: Attending an outdoor wedding in Albuquerque during monsoon season.
Promising: Receiving a letter from the University of Oklahoma Library Science program.
Disappointing: Denver's job market
Humbling: Applying at a coffee shop/asking Dad for money
Infuriating: Finding out that you entitled to unemployment insurance only proportionately to the amount of time you worked at your last employer (The government is paying me a whopping $339 until I get my next job. And I've been paying into unemployment since the age of 15.)
Vindicating: Passing the written motorcycle test. Got my permit!
Disquieting: Senor Idiot's veto of the stem cell bill. Lovely.
Comforting: My sister's letters from Lesotho. She's doing well. And growing up. This is good.
