Acculturation: the process of adopting the cultural traits or social patterns of another group.
I am not doing this. Of course, I’m not particularly trying yet. I’ve spent most of my days indoors doing work on the ole’ Lappy or the keyboard. The other days I’ve spent with Ash just enjoying why I made this move. Did you know they drive the speed limit here? Like most of the time!? I know, it’s shocking. There’s a place where it’s a 15 mph when school is in session. You’ll never guess what I see: people going 15. Like MANY people. ALL people, going 15 miles per hour. It’s like a funeral process in every direction. Creepy.
I’ll be damned if I’ll start pronouncing this state “correctly” either. Nuh-VAAA-duh? No thank you.
But I do enjoy it, even if it feels more like an extended vacation spot rather than home (yet). I have a feeling I’ll be more active once the weather turns warmer and they don’t close every road (to disc golf courses) prematurely. And if I go out and actually meet people.
I may have myself a Scott Fourre and company at my place on New Years. Looks like I’m startin’ to wrangle up my first party.
Engorgement: the act of devouring greedily
I engaged in this this weekend. Thanksgiving dinner with the other fam, Sunday dinner with the other fam, and eating a bag of pretzel rods the other day. Hey, I have to store up fat for the winter, don’t I?
