Sunday-Wrap-up-2

My Week

 I didn’t get to post a wrap-up last week because a)My host was moving servers, and b)I was out of town, so this post will cover the past two weeks. My weeks have been *very* boring interspersed with fun weekends, so that’s pretty standard, I suppose.

I talked about it a little in my monthly wrap-up, but last weekend I went back to the city I moved from at the beginning of February(which I will now call CIMFF–City I Moved From February, which hilariously is longer than its actual name), because one of my friends was having a birthday and had some stuff planned. Unfortunately, the bad weather made us cancel our planned trip to Dallas, but we hit up our favorite local spots, so that was fun. And I got to go into a real bookstore again!(two of them, in fact).

Then yesterday I went BACK to the CIMFF for another friend’s wedding. The wedding was lovely(though the seats in the church we were in were so comfortable I almost fell asleep before the ceremony started, which would have been awkward), but the trip there itself was slightly move stressful because I drove up for the wedding and then drove back yesterday evening. It’s not a super long drive(3 hours each way), but it does get tiring because the trip spans probably the most boring part of Texas.

 Question of the Week:

I was thinking about my question of the week on the drive back from the wedding yesterday & I came up with a really good one, but now I can’t remember it. Don’t you just hate when that happens? Let’s go with. . .

Do you have a favorite or least favorite number? My favorite number is 12. I don’t have a super strong least favorite number, but I’m really not a fan of 7 or 23. Twenty-three in particular annoys me because I’m 23 right now, and it just looks so *wrong* to me.

    I’ve never thought about people having a least favorite number before, but I guess it makes sense. I obviously don’t have one. My favorite numbers are probably 13 and 11.

        Hah, nice. They are rather uncooperative, aren’t they? I had an amazing sleep-away camp experience in Cabin 13 (following a horrific experience a few years earlier, so it was a huge deal), and I won a study abroad scholarship with the number 11. Too bad I didn’t pick that school!

      I like *some* odd numbers, but I really don’t like prime numbers! Which is part of the reason I can’t stand 23.
