I rolled out of bed at 12:30pm after a nightlong catchup marathon of previous Gossip Girl episodes. After my morning mug of Milo and much procrastinating, I finally make lunch and get down to doing some homework. I've got the TV on and I've seen this commercial many times and it always gets me smiling. Especially when they go: "Ewwwwwwwww..." Hahahaha!

Maine Highlights

Last weekend, we had decided last minute to set out to Bar Harbor, ME and join a bunch of Sloanies for a long weekend and Fall foliage viewing. An estate consisting of 5 mini houses was booked which slept 20 people and my, what an estate it was! Imagine a set out of a Hollywood haunted manison: included in the houses are moose heads, native indian bronze statues, gargoyle guarded gates, odds books, eclectic furniture & decorations. There was a pool, a high tower with roof deck, a dining hall and an excellent view. Our time was spent BBQing, playing games, exploring Acadia National Park, taking a million photos and eating lots of lobster. Lots.

Relief at last...

So if you've been wondering where I've been, I've been at the computer lab at school because for some reason I decided to drink milk and spill it all over my Macbook. Yes, that's right. Milk. So for the last few weeks, I've been laptopless, utilizing only my school labs for when I needed to do homework and check emails etc. Running around trying to find someone who will fix your computer because Apple will charge $750 is quite a task. Nevertheless I found a little joint in Greenwich who did the job just right and well below $750 (which I could have clearly gotten nearly half of the new aluminium Macbook) and today, I finally got my milky white baby back.

The past few weeks have been stressful and eventful at the same time. I went on a road trip to Maine, spent some quality time with J in a fantastically creepy estate which spans 4 acres and includes a carriage house, a high tower, a dining hall; gargoyles and moose heads and deer. We visited the Acadia National Park and took a bazillion photos over a span of 4 days frolicking in the Fall foliage. Conversely, I've also received some personal bad news and now face midterms. Its been a roller coaster ride of emotions but I'm hanging in there so far. I'm glad I'm not alone and I'm thankful for every day that's given to me.

Now, I'm just doing the much needed admin stuff which is associated with spending insane amounts of time in front of my Macbook, which brings supreme satisfaction to me. Ah, its been a long time...and its so good to have you back again. Maine photos to follow.

Spotted: Elephants in Boston

"I think we've seen it all" J said.

Yes, you read that right. ELEPHANTS. The Ringling Bros & Barnum Bailey Circus is in town. J and I nearly died of shock when we spotted an entourage of elephants, followed by a troop of horses and miniature ponies walking on the road in Boston/Cambridge area last night while enroute to the Logan Airport. They were tail in tail as seen in the photo here snapped by a fellow observer, except we saw them at 7pm in the dark, flanked by staff and police officers. Roads were blocked and the group were moving quite silently in the middle of the evening - there were no crowds or pedestrians and the elephants weren't wearing their circus head gear for PR either. The circus is in town, so watch the roads for any elephants crossing!
