all kinds of pants

bearded lance, of wolf-5, really took to the term "sparklepants" and has expanded my hypothetical wardrobe to include "seriouspants" for when i'm ready to get down to business and "fancypants" for...well, i haven't quite figured out a pattern for when these come out.

here's the deal. i have had all sorts of intentions of writing something witty to sum up recent happenings, but then i get busy and 1 thing leads to another...so i'm just going to spill it in raw form:

the 3rd graders at havre de grace elem wrote us letters as a going away present. alexa's letter read: "dear americorps friends, i love you very much, even you christiane." didn't know that was up for debate...

after much thought, i chose not to apply for the camp DREAM composite team in vermont so i will be leaving for new orleans on saturday. a few updates:

- we will not be living in a church as previously reported. instead our team will be living in a 3-bed, 1-bath house in the garden district.

- i got an interview for the summer of service program.

- i bought a vegan vitamin supplement including b-12, iron, and folic acid to ease anyone's troubled mind about me staying healthy as a vegetarian.

- i might - and i actually mean it this time - be speaking at nccc graduation in november if you'd like to be there. i'll keep you posted.

i visited preethi and dan in philly two weekends ago. i have a growing suspicion that they are the greatest duo known to mankind. and i think i'm falling in love with philadelphia...

shout-outs to velia, grammy n., and the bakers for their special days this week!

gotta run. much much much much love!

YAY for falling in love with Philly!! I have to admit, Dan & I accidentally noticed on your church notes how you wrote that you love Philadelphia. I promise we weren't trying to spy. But it was in all caps. :)

And I'm pretty sure Mulder + Scully or Jim + Pam or Jack Bauer + anyone make up the greatest duos known to mankind.

And we'd LOVE to try to be there in November at the graduation.
