Thanks to Kevin ( [livejournal.com profile] teledildonix ) and DVR, I now have a new set of clothes to wear to job interviews!

Kevin drove me down to Lynnwood today to go to the big and tall mens' store, and DVR gave me a voucher for $350 to buy an outfit to wear while job hunting.

Kevin helped me pick out 2 shirts, 2 pairs of dress slacks, dress shoes, dress socks, a belt, and underwear. The jacket I already had, and [livejournal.com profile] kadyg helped me pick out the tie a couple of years ago when I was temping for Manpower. The sunglasses were a gift from Rick Ruben.

Yes, my friends dress me... and considering what I wear most of the time, this is a good thing.

I look good!

Got up this morning and went down to Kris & Kokii's to get the Star Wars Trilogy VHS tapes that I needed to return to the WWU library. Took the bus to campus & returned them, then visited my Tech Writing professor to talk about various things (he's going to write me a letter of reference, and he gave me a list of tech writer employment resources). Went to the cashier's office to pick up an invoice of the $40 I owe for degree application, which I am asking DVR to pay.

Went by the WWU alumni office to sign up for the graduation ceremony next month, and give my measurements for cap & gown (I'm sure it's not every day that they have to procure these for 6'7" 400# graduates!). Went downtown to submit the invoice to DVR, then took a bus out to the hospital to visit [profile] kennapea , who has been hospitalized with abdominal pain that they can't seem to diagnose. She's in good spirits, despite being hospitalized for 4 days now.

Surprisingly, BoyJeep is still in the parking lot there at St. Joseph, where he's been since Memorial Day weekend (I half expected they would have towed him by now). He still won't start. I don't have the money to have him towed, or the money to have him repaired (Anyone have AAA they could help me out to have him towed back to my place?).

Came home, and Kris came by. We hung out for a while, then I spent the rest of the evening on Facebook and playing Star Wars: Empire at War.

Time for bed.

Well, after the rough start, mom's visit today turned out to be pretty good. We went to breakfast at IHOP, where I convinced her that I was serious about finishing school. She agreed to postpone some dental work she needed so that she could keep paying my housing while I am in school for the next couple of quarters. I am grateful, and told her so.

It was a beautiful, sunny (if slightly cold) day, so I took her on a tour of Bellingham (click here for photos), and then we went and picked up the turkey at Haggen's. Mom also took me to Rite Aid to buy me various household things I needed (shampoo, ibuprofen, stamps, paper towels, etc.) Thanks mom!

Then we went to Kokii's for dinner. Kris did most of the cooking, and while we waited, we watched the first Harry Potter movie. She'd never seen it, and didn't get why everyone kept calling me "Hagrid." So we showed her, and she was delighted.

After dinner, we went back to my place, and called my brother in Japan over Skype to wish him and his family a Happy Thanksgiving (even though it was afternoon the next day there!). The Skype call to Japan worked pretty well.

Then, mom went to Motel 6 to sleep. She was exhausted, because she'd been traveling almost nonstop since yesterday, and had had very little sleep. I'm glad I convinced her to get a motel room -- she was going to sleep on my floor, and that would have been uncomfortable for us both!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
