I wish I were on my way to Maryland.

But instead, I’m getting dressed to go to my Last. Exam. Ever. (okay, I won’t say Ever. But definitely the last for a long time!)

Afterwards? Normally I’d treat myself to some yummy Indian food and some Ben&Jerry’s (I wonder if the B&J on Queen has Americone Dream?) but as I’m trying to keep the calories down, I must instead go shopping for some new pants that, you know, fit. And maybe some other fun stuff – like a trip to Lush!

And when I come home, later…I can spin and knit and wash fleece and dye and do whatever the hell I want! It’s crazy, I tells ya!

Wish me luck.

    Good luck!
    What’s in Americone Dream? Now I’m curious.
    Enjoy your blog, I’ve been following it for some time. I guess it took a mention of ICE CREAM for me to comment. Hmmmm…. I’ll have to think about that.

    It’s a weird feeling to NOT have classes and papers and exams and stuff always hanging over your head, but I’m sure you’ll get used to it! :)

    Lush is a great way to treat on a diet! I swear some of that stuff works as well as chocolate (I think there was some study about making women use chocolate smelling soap and it made them LESS likely to crave sweets)

    good luck with the exam!

    Gambatte!

    I wish I were going to a S&W as well. But I have half a tub of B&J in the freezer, so I’ll join your ice cream party instead.

    Congrats on exams. Americone Dream is amazing and you gotta love the fact the Steven Colbert got his own flavor. The label cracks me up.

    Good luck Laura – I thought I’d written my last exam 20 years ago – that was before I decided to go back to school not once, but twice!

    Fingers crossed and sending you “smart” vibes.

    Celebrate with a bit of new fleece why don’t you!

    Congratulations! I said the same thing after my last college exam. And then I went to grad school, and law school, and took the Bar…
    Enjoy it while it lasts!

    Ooh, Americone Dream is really tasty! (Leave it up to Steven Colbert to endorse a Ben&Jerry’s flavor!)
    ‘Hope your exam wasn’t too bad; I can sympathise completely.
    And…I’ve just started reading your blog, so hello!!

    I’ve noticed a big crossover between people who love LUSH and knitters. Do you think that is because knitters appreciate all of the process that goes into making LUSH products (like cracking open coconuts)? Or is it because we’re all really into our hands?
