Hi! It’s me! Lily!
And today was pretty quiet! Thankfully!!!
It was a really eventful weekend!!!
Rebecca flew back out last night, she had a pretty good time, but it wasn’t really a vacation, they just wanted to see my concert. Rebecca and her friends were actually pretty impressed, they know a lot of really wealthy and even famous people, and no one who’s done that. A lot of other cool stuff, of course, but not that.
So I guess the elephant in the room (Dave loves that saying, right up there with saying he wants to doubleclick into things – aww) is the fact that my “benefactor” was there and I didn’t even know it!!! It might have been the person who gave me a hug, and maybe not. At least it was a public event so it wasn’t creepy or anything, but… I mean they flew down here to Round Rock just to see me play? I wonder if they flew to Fort Hood – I mean Cavazos (they renamed it for some stupid reason), but…
A part of me wonders why they have such an interest in me that they spend taxpayer money to send couriers and stuff. Isn’t the postal service good enough? it seems like every time they communicate with me it’s in a kind of odd way. Like the other night when the military guy knocked at my door. They never look comfortable being postmen or a cookie delivery service. But like I said, I didn’t ask them to!
I wonder if “benefactor” is the right word. I mean, they do that, yes. But… there’s a little more there than just me being me would warrant. Don’t you think?
They said something about owing me a great debt. And Beth’s mentor seems to think there was something top secret going on. Putting the pieces together… I don’t think I’ll put the pieces together.
Speaking of Beth’s mentor, she’s been learning a lot. Like where the best coffee is on campus, how to write grant papers, how to suck up to professors… haha! Well… I don’t think that’s what she had in mind, but I guess those are good skills if you want to go into academia, right? But they also have her doing experiments. She hasn’t discovered anything yet, but they promise if she is really helpful they’ll put her name on a scientific paper. That would be a big deal.
They told her not to expect to discover anything for many, many years.
And David’s still at camp. They’re keeping a very close eye on him. He still gets to spend time with his “girlfriend”, but the “dates” are supervised, and there is no lip to lip contact allowed ever again. But lip to cheek contact is allowed under very controlled circumstances, and she’s been taking full advantage. Sigh. Little player.
Okay, I’m tired. Going to bed.
