09/17/2006: "Salmon Enchanted Evening"
So, La Fiesta Tomlinson ended up being a lot of fun. Mike had invited me to go out fishing earlier in the day but I was busy with getting ready so then he showed up at the party with a massive salmon he'd just caught! The photo of me fake kissing it doesn't really do it justice, its tail was almost touching the floor. Thanks Mike!
The other highlight of the night was when one of our history professors had everyone gather around to watch You've Been Kicked in the Nuts. High quality entertainment.
The topic of my upcoming departure came up several times and I was starting to feel worn down. Aaron came over this morning to hang out for awhile and agreed not to bring it up anymore. He also gave me a book called Being Peace by Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh.
I've been reading it tonight and it's wonderful. Heavy reading but makes so much sense and makes me feel better already. I have to have a medical thing done tomorrow (nothing major) but it has me freaked because I hate going to the doctor. I'm going to bring it with me to the hospital to read while I'm waiting to mellow me out, I think it will help. Thanks Aaron!
Anyway, I won't be back online until Tuesday (if all goes well)...wish me luck!
