Still 1800 miles apart and now a little less wise

Well, 13 days away from the wedding, but Jenn and I are still 1800 miles apart. I am still in Provo working and getting the house ready for Jenn while she is in North Carolina getting everything ready for the wedding. Oh, and getting her wisdom teeth (why are they called that anyway?) removed. She is recovering well after surgery on Friday. I wish I could have been there, because apparently she said and did some pretty funny stuff as the anesthesia wore off. Jenn is a trooper and won't let a major maxillofacial surgery stand in her way and had her bridal shower the next day. In the meantime, stuck in Provo, I have just been working, mostly at the Bean Life Science Museum making teachers aid kits using specimens for the museum. I also work at a molecular biology lab, but that has been less demanding this week. Additionally I am trying to get in better shape by running, hiking, and getting rid of my Wisconsin complexion (meaning pasty white). As the clock ticks, we'll keep you posted on wedding updates! We are so excited.

Hiring and Zupa's

At work we're looking to hire a new TA to help with summer projects. Kimball opened the spot this morning and by the end of the day there were 40 applicants. We reviewed resumes and picked a handful to call back for the interview. Included in our group is a North Carolinian (I freaked out when I saw the 919 area code on her phone number), a beauty queen (who looks humble from her online pictures), and the trombone section leader of the marching band (Kimball played trombone, so that was his pick). I spent the afternoon getting in touch with everyone and setting up times for interviews, because of that I didn't get as much studying done as I would've hoped...

But it's ok because we had a delicious dinner! Jessie is moving this weekend, so we had her good-bye party at Zupa's (it's like a fancier Priddyboy's) tonight. I got lobster bisque soup and Daniel got a tomato-avocado-turkey sandwich (or something like that anyway) and it was so good! They have fondue on their dessert menu, we thought it would be a good idea to go get soup and dessert sometime.

And now it's time to study/work.
