Tomorrow is the Hong Kong Duets Karaoke Contest. First prize is $100. Erica and I are singing Toto’s Africa. It’s going to be awesome. And I love the fact that while I may not be singing with a fellow glee club alum, I’m singing with a fellow glee club alum’s sister!

I’m finding nothing to write about….I HAVE been doing stuff with my friends — most recently, Jordan’s and Martini Monday at Venetian Moon. We had a big group there.

Work starts on Monday! I need to get a T pass….it’s quite expensive….

Project Runway is AWESOME! I don’t know why I’ve never watched it until this season! I was so happy for Bradley — there’s no way that he deserved to be in the top three, but his outfit had a great silhouette. I love Robert. I think that if I could be dressed by any designer on the show, it would be Robert and Keith. I would be all over Keith if he were straight — LOVE him!

And Baby-Sitters Club! I am replenishing my collection and I’m finding books at such a crazy rate. Seriously, as soon as I discovered what a huge fan base there still is among girls my age, I’ve been sucked in again! Ebay is great for finding books, as is the bsc_trade community on livejournal. At the moment I have 121 of the 225 books in the series, and around 30 are pending. I’m also making the rounds with the used bookstores — I actually went to SAVERS in REVERE today! Savers is a giant thrift store, and it was recommended by someone in one of the communities. It took me forever to find it, but after I had given up, I saw it.

I bought seven duplicates of books I already have: Kristy’s Great Idea (new cover), Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls (new cover), Mary Anne Saves the Day (both old and new), Claudia and the New Girl (new), Hello Mallory, and Stacey and the Missing Ring. If there is ANY chance that someone out there wants to trade, you can have any of them for any book above 90, any Friends Forever, or any mystery above 17.

Oh, man. I get too obsessed.

I also went to a coinstar machine today, and was surprised to find that they didn’t have the no commission for a gift certificate for Starbucks, iTunes or Amazon.com. But I got $16 out of it.

I got a new black iPod.

This is the most boring blog entry I’ve ever written….

….So how am I feeling?

Excited and a little nervous to start work, nostalgic that these are my last few days of freedom EVER, and full of dread because while times are great now, virtually all of my friends will have moved away by September, to greener pastures like DC, Florida, Texas, grad school in New Hampshire, and BOLIVIA (yes, Kara, I know you’re coming back, but six months plus is a long time!!). It’s sad. It’s like the end of college — I kept crying while we were still together, like at the Senior Farewell and the last Pops concert. Once I left, I was fine. I haven’t cried since. So this is marring the last of the good times I have with my friends. It just has a black cloud hanging over what could be an amazing time.

I think I’m going to watch a little Colbert.
