My dog has pink eye. Bleah. But at least that's it. She's doing much better now.
More on topic, my cousin announced on FB that she is going on vacation in a few days - in my state. I don't think she plans to visit me or contact me at all. This bothers me a bit, though really, when I think about it, I have no idea what we'd talk about anyway since we're so different. I think she wrote me off as a stiff or a party pooper after our family reunion in 2008 because I didn't want to go out bar-hopping with her and the other cousins. She is the oldest, a couple months older than me. Many of the others are in their twenties. I just didn't want to go out partying. I didn't even like doing that when I was in college.
I asked her on FB what area she was visiting. So far, no reply. I really get the sense she is avoiding me. Now I need to figure out why I care.
I really think FB is a PITA. I have only been keeping it because it's the only way I've been able to keep in touch with a couple people I actually really do care about. Most everyone else is just acquaintances. I guess my cousin kind of fits into this category as well even though we are related.
I got another book, Party of One: The Loner's Manifesto, that I'm hoping to read after this one.
