A New Kind of Roomie

So last week, I woke up in the middle of the night to a weird, scratching noise. It sounded like a little animal taking its creepy claws and scratching on wood. I thought maybe it was the girl that was staying with me last week (she was a temp just doing some consulting for the week- the new one comes at the end of feb) but neigh my friends. That noise woke me up again last night at 3:48am and there's no denying it. I think its a rat. I am FREAKING out. That pest is getting taken care of THIS WEEK! Ew. On a side note, the bday party was a hit. Lots of angels, cowboys, a chicken, catholic priest, cleaner, army was quite a sight. Pics to come. I have also been missing American food lately...and reminiscing on this with another American intern and his wife. Here's the list so far:

1. Mac and Cheese - they dont have it here! I've never appreciated Velveeta more than I do right now.
2. Corn Dogs - There are at least 100 different kinds of sausage in this country but no corn dogs.
3. Gatorade- specifically Lemon Lime - The closest thing we have here is "Energade" and it is NOT the same!
4. Goat Cheese - If you know me, you know I have a huge crush on goat cheese and although they have it here, its not the same and not very popular here.
5. Pizza Hut...well American pizza in general..the pizza here is so behind the times.
6. Baked Goods. You know how Publix has an aisle just for cake and muffin mixes..they have one section of a's ridic. And they just recently got frosting in a can...isnt that crazy??

That's it for now. That list makes me sound like diabetes is coming at me in no time. I blame it on the rat. And on another side note if you want to be cool here, you have to say "hectic." Like if something was wild/crazy, it was hectic. I like it- Im adding it to my verbage. Assimilatin' baby.
