My Spanish phone is hereby to be dubbed Opossum...

For it's remarkable and distinctively asshole behavior at managing to *play dead for almost three weeks*.

For a brief recap, since Morocco, the phone I bought here stopped working. I whined, coddled it, tried to charge it, took apart all of it's bits and pieces, attempted a séance, to no avail. Last week, I gave up, put it back in it's box, set about doing homework and promptly forgot about it.

I've been intending to go to Vodafone and ask what was wrong with it, and actually was about to put my shoes on to go this evening when I figured I'd shove it on the charger one last time before venturing out.

AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW. Like magic, the charging signal comes up, my phone turns on just fine, and I'm left with the conclusion that my phone is a jerk. A jerk named Opossum, 'cause that's how I roll.

Anyway, my phone making a zombie like return from death is a good enough reason for blog post, I suppose.

Not much has been going on here- came down with a cold, so I'm not the prettiest sight in all the land, but whatever. It's not that bad, and it seems to be clearing up.

I have to go out and get some new clothes- I'm going to head out tomorrow to get some dresses and skirts. I've lost some weight here which is awesome. I've been walking everywhere and have not been eating Moody food, which I think are the two main reasons behind it. It's a good thing that I'm losing weight- on the other hand, only one pair of my jeans fits properly now.

Let's see, what else...still struggling with my language skills, but it's going a little better. I need to talk to my intercambio >. > I've been putting it off, since there's been sort of a revolving door of them. I need to make sure the one I've been assigned is still in the program, and if not, got to Rodrigo and ask for a new one. Since having one is a mandatory part of the program...yeah, I need to get on that.

Faolan's birthday is coming up! I can't believe she's going to be one. It feels like she's always been a part of my life and in the same breath, she's so new and exciting. I need to get a package off to her with a gift. There are some little plastic wolves in a store near here that I may pick up, and maybe a little flamenco dress, if I can find one cheap enough.

Overall, things have been good. Nothing too exciting. :D In conclusion, here's a picture of me and some friends on St. Patrick's Day. (photo curtesy of Kelsey Smagler)
Way in the back, but I'm there! :D
