We also had a devastating computer crash. Our hard drive is completely dead, or shot, or whatever term you're supposed to use to describe a complete meltdown of all your pictures and music and documents that you have spent the last 3 years building and saving. Solution: a new iMac. Thank goodness for student loans. (If any of you out there are interested in a nice flat screen monitor, let me know. We'll negotiate a good price for it.)
I miss Utah and our friends and family. We're loving it here, but we definitely miss everyone. We were lucky to have Mary and Jorge here for the night on Monday. They are Eliza's friends from Orem. We ate pizza, then they took us to the Cheesecake Factory. It was my first time, and I don't know why I've never been before. The cheesecake was amazing! We got one that is layered with chocolate cake, and I about died. I really want to go back for dinner some time. How do they have so many cheesecakes?!
I just want to end by saying good move, John McCain. Risky move, but a good one. I love that everyone is so worried about her becoming president since old Johnny is so, well, old. But she sounds like a great person, and heck, if the democrats are making history, why can't the republicans, too?
