Ceci n'est pas une personne.

I made it. It took almost exactly 24 hours, as Mike and I got in about 5pm yesterday. I've done very little unpacking. As it's tax season, I spent the day helping out at my Mom's office. (She's a CPA.) Anyway, it's been rainy all day, and Jamie (my parents dog) seems to think I am a towel.

I am missing Heather greatly. I think Jamie is too. It was weird. Jamie came up to me, and then started looking around as if expecting someone else, then came back to me. I guess Heather is better at petting than I am.

Louise should be down here next week, which will rock. And then I'm having dinner with my Sister and Billy on Sunday. Louise, come down earlier and meet my Sister. :-)

I need to find out what I need to do to get my license. Unfortunately they don't just pass them out if you have charm and good looks.

Did I mention I'm missing Heather? And I am so proud of her getting into Smith. I knew she would do it. I didn't have a single doubt. :-)

What kind of Monkey are you?

Adam, you're an Orangutan.

It's unlikely that anything we say here will surprise you, as you are an insanely smart, perceptive individual who spends a lot of time deep in thought. You're known within your family (at least your family in the wild) to be the one who blazes new trails and is sometimes nomadic. Unlike other certain primate wanderers, however, you might choose to trek out on your own instead of with large groups.

You might have been the type of kid looking for your own adventures and telling your parents not to worry as you boarded the train in some small, Czech town without a station name, but hey, you're careful, right?

Hiking is something most orangutans love, but then again, they just like getting out and stretching their limbs — whether between vines, branches, or sale racks. And if you're not as enthusiastic in the athletic arena, you probably just stretch your mind more to make up for it and that keeps you well-balanced.

If you do not have a family yet, don't be surprised to find yourself as a doting parent when you do. You have deep affection and respect for your children and entrust them to grow and develop into strong, aware young people.
