Well, my chew toy stepped in quite valiantly and saved me from having my entire weekend ruined by this unfortunate set of circumstances - he called several times last night to check on me, today I took the day off and ran errands and tonight we went Christmas shopping together with my li'l sis, and it was quite fun. Tomorrow we may go see "Star Trek: Nemesis," or just hit coffee and dinner with my Asian club, and Sunday we have a Christmas party to go to. And then Monday we're going to wrap presents, and next weekend do other fun things before I leave for home. He scored major points by being there for me, and he's also made me realize that I've got a good thing going with him - I like him, he's obviously very good to me, and we always have fun together. Methinks he may be upgraded to something more than temporary soon, but we'll see what happens.
