Latvian Independence Day

Today is the day that Latvia regained its independence from Soviet occupation in 1990. My roommate and I celebrated it, because we. are. LATVIA! (Long story involving a mug, a stop sign, and a wall.)

We went to the mall. She treated me to Zupa's for lunch. I'd never been there before, but the "samich" I got was very yummy.

Tonight something very exciting happened! Are you ready for this? We ordered a . . . pizza! Okay, so that doesn't sound super exciting but we got it delivered! Like, a guy in a Papa John's shirt and hat came up to our door and said my name. And guess what I got to say when I handed him the money? Go on, guess.

"Keep the change."


I've always wanted to say that!

Then we watched Dr. Who while we ate our pizza.

Oh yeah. It was a pretty great Latvian Independence Day.


  1. aww man Whitney, you crack me up! Sweetheart, permit to be honest with you: I don't know if you'll be able to handle living in a big city like New York. Your head might explode out of excitement, which isn't very good and will make me sad. Nah, I love your "keep the change" story. I remember my first time. He was a nice Chinese man.

  2. You're so funny. I bet you said "keep the change" with a giant goofy grin on your face... And the pizza boy was probably all "whatever."
