yesterday i learned my roommate's name and the dorm we're in.
she has a very wealthy-sounding name.
that's all i have to say about that.
a hello from my new best friend (we'll see)
was waiting for me in the new inbox,
along with about twenty-five other unread messages.
for now, i'm going to call my new roommate jan.
her e-mail read:
now, i think i'll dissect it.
i'm not a fan of emotocons. i hate them. a lot.
but i have to accept them as a fact of the internet, for many people.
so i forgive her.
i don't know where she got the info about our dorm, but then, i've been pretty far removed from the college thing, believing (naively) "i'll just figure it out when i get there." probably stupid.
i like the reference to the "who brings the fridge discussion." that's funny. cute. okay she has a sense of humor. phew.
dissection finished. there wasn't much there.
so i wrote back did she prefer to be called by the shorter version of her name (because her name isn't really jan, it's longer), which i realized was stupid, because if she preferred it then she would have signed her name that way. idiot. (me, not her.) and i said i was pleased about the "humongous doubles" and the kitchen and i asked her where she is from. i wonder if she's written back yet.
remember when i said her name sounded rich?
