Heebee jeebees

August 6, 2007

Sigh. Hello again. Five days later but not really any closer insofar as preparing for Seville is concerned. Really I feel like I’ll be able to really focus once the job at Gringos has played out (this Wednesday..YES!) and I can have my nights free to organize for this trip (I like to make things organized…I make lists, I scratch off to-dos in the order that they are accomplished…I once color coded my closet).

Tonite was another exercise in futility in saving money. Wil and I hit up Barnes and Noble for some lattes and book browsing. Honestly I shouldn’t ever set foot in that place again. No matter what kind of promises I make to myself beforehand, I ALWAYS manage to walk out of there with something. Tonite it was a SUDOKU book and a mini journal. And I have great plans for both of them, thank you very much. SUDOKU for the plane, mini journal for scribbling down words and phrases to make sense of later once I soak myself in the waters of Sevillian life. As Wil and I were sipping our fabulously overpriced coffee drinks tonite I imagined myself in the same stature in Spain, only hearing the beautiful Castilian accents in the background instead of English everywhere. Honestly I don’t care what they talk about, but I’m sure it will be beautiful.

On the saving money note, however, I have found that decorating a ceramic piggy bank and scribbling “Seville” all over it has helped keep my funds stored away instead of splurging them on everything I pass by. I glued the rubber stopper closed so I cannot access the money until the very end, when it will be “bye bye piggy” with a hammer. 🙂 My mom says that’s destructive behavior. I think it’s a little fun.
