it's friday 

it will be very stange to be back in the states after being abroad for three months. i'm not sure what will be the strangest thing . . . not being able to find yakult in the local grocery store. not being able to watch british tv in the same way. perhaps it will be the difference in my routine . . . i have certainly established a routine whilst here. maybe it will be the lack of pop idol cd's in the local virgin megastore . . . or text messaging on my mobile as opposed to calling on my cell . . . i think the strangest thing will be living in a place that doesn't feel like home. that will be the strangest thing of all.
