Weekend Before School 

Before my work shift ended on Thursday, I was randomly checking blogs and came across Bobby's. I was reading his post about graduation and making reservations for his celebration/reception with family and friends. I thought...ugh, already?!?!

So, KT and I got our heads together and discussed some options and planned our graduation celebration. We contacted family members and some friends to confirm if they'll be driving up/flying up/attending our graduation as well as the celebration.

Luckily, the place where we want to have our celebration was not booked and was open for us. So, we got that taken care of. Now, we're just finalizing details with families and friends coming over.

We've got some responses already and the picture has become a bit clearer of what we'll have to do or what will be done. Overall, it wasn't a big burden and seems that we can get this all done by the end of the month and just wait til May rolls around.

14 more weeks til graduation!!!!!!!


Last month, 8 of us Deafies, plus kids, get together to hang out and play games at a friend's house. Since it was December, we were required to wear a holiday hat. KT and I went out and got one of those red spiral hat with a white pom-pom at the end. We just had a great time chatting, laughing, drinking and eating. We were all up til 5am.

For KT and me, this is like fabulous. It's hard to find others who just love to play games.

Well, last Friday, was our turn to host a themed get-together. So, we had a Hobo Gathering, where everyone had to bring their own soup. I brought baked potato soup. KT brought chili. Others, either made their own or bought from the store.

I was flattered that I was nominated for the best soup. I came home with an empty pot. KT also came home with an empty pot.

Ours was so good that they've asked us to make it again for next month's gathering for a SuperBowl party.

Again, the gathering was fun as usual. There was a surprise birthday celebration for those who had a birthday in December and January. Soup and cake, what an interesting mixture.

Games were fun as usual. We were up til 2:30am. We were all like, at least we weren't up til 5am. Yeah, well, you know how it is with Deafies. We stopped playing at 2:30 but we were still chatting til about 3 or so. By the time we got home, it was nearly 4.

Great time!

At least, next month, we won't be up that late because we'll all be glued to the SuperBowl game and the commercials. Plus, school for some of us, so we can't be up that late.


KT was in a GOOD mood Saturday night because the Denver Broncos won against the New England Patriots.

KT went over to a friend's house to watch it on the big HDTV screen TV. I was in the mood to stay home and chill. But, I was watching the game as well.


We were watching the game Sunday with the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Indianapolis Colts. We were rooting for the Steelers because the Colts and the Broncos are in the same division and hate each other.

It was a very close game. At first, the Steelers were leading. But then, at the end of the 3rd quarter and in the 4th quarter, the Colts were catching up. It was such a scary sight to watch Jerome Bettis fumble the ball just before he landed a touchdown. The ball was picked up by the Colts and made a run for it but was stopped. That would've allowed the Colts to win the game. Luckily for Jerome, the Colts missed the field goal kick to tie the game into overtime.

Nice to know that the NFL referee admitted his mistake on the interception call by Troy Polamalu. It was obvious that Polamalu intercepted the ball!

Anyways, this Sunday, the Steelers will play against the Broncos in Denver. This is gonna be a big challenging and emotional game!

Yesterday was KT's 30th birthday! Pah! Now he can no longer make fun of my being in the 30's club. Welcome, KT!! :P

We had a low-key celebration and that's pretty much how Kevin likes it. Among the stuff he got and wanted was a DVD set of Thundercats. So, now, we've been alternately watching shows of Thundercats, Six Feet Under and Wonder Woman.

Anyways, for lunch, we ate at Cafe Luna with Cliff, Manny and Merritt. Good time by catching up on news with each other.

Cliff got us some gifts for Christmas and KT's birthday. We got a couple of gay movies. However, they didn't bear the closed caption symbol. So, we went to Lambda Rising to exchange. They were nice to allow us to exchange because their policy was that DVD's were non-returnable, including exchanges.

However, we learned something new that Lambda now affixes a small rainbow sticker on DVD's that have captions, in their display. With a large Deaf community in DC, I'm sure there were some complaints about how some movies, especially American-made, aren't captioned. Don't get me started on that one.


Now, school has started. We've yet to register for classes, which we'll have to do today.

Now, we've gotta register, sign some forms, pay fees and get books. Gotta prepare for internship. Gotta prepare portfolios. Gotta, gotta, gotta...

Just 14 more weeks! Then, it'll all be over! Just 14 more weeks...
