My mother and her two sisters on are a 6-star cruise this week (which my multi-millionaire grandfather financed - no effing way my immediate family could afford to bed down with the rats on something barely afloat, let alone a 6-star cruise), so I'm currently staying in my aunt's apartment to cat-sit for her. (She has three cats like we do.)

Mostly, it's pretty awesome. True, the cats DO wake me up at 7:30 every morning to get fed -but I'm living with that. I have access to a sweet laptop with wireless internet access, my own kitchen, and the entire place ENTIRELY to myself. Well, and the cats. (I accidentally got the "," key on the laptop caught in the spirals of my notebook and it's still slightly crooked, plus I seem to have gotten her lounge chair stuck in a reclined position. Oops. But I DID clean out her laundry corner for her and organized her disastrous cabinets, so maybe it evens out?)

The best thing is, I'm a ten-minute walk away from the school! I can run over and grab myself munchies or whatever anytime the stuff in the apartment isn't enough to sustain me.

Which I might have to. Because all my aunt has in the fridge by way of drinking material is booze and Coke Zero.

And I just discovered why they call it Coke Zero:


...I might have to drink the BUD. Jesus.

Well, yes, I do have filtered water. But sheesh, I shouldn't have to resort to something actually hydrating.

Wow, that is really kinda nice for everyone. It's kind of like everyone gets a vacation. :)

I know what you mean about the zero. I wouldn't say that it doesn't taste like anything, though. It does taste a tiny bit like crap to me, but then, there's no accounting for taste. ;)

"A tiny bit like crap," sums it up, yeah. I had white cheddar popcorn before I popped open that can, so that probably disguised the taste at first. :P

It's totally a vacation! I've never been this alone and on my own before, and I really, really like it. Makes me wish I had the money (or, to be honest, all the living skills) to move out sooner than I will end up doing. (i.e. Probably not for at least four more years while I finish at Mount Royal.)
