Hmmm.. this was a fun night.

I just wanted to steal these from Lauren. I sure had fun
playing Cribbage. Even though it looks like we're playing Twister.

Now where Am I going to put that hand anyway?
Hmm.. Should I mention that Andrew looks mighty intrested in Alex's, erm... Maybe I shouldn't. Andrew IS taller than me now. Although I'm pretty sure that I can take him. Bring it on! And your little dog too!

Yup. Wizard of Oz references. I've got to get off this kick. It's bad. Not to mention that those monkey's are way scary. WAY scary.

And I don't think I want to think about where my head is in this picture. Nope. Really don't want to think about it. Not at all.

So I think that I'm going to stop blathering on now... especially since I don't think anyone is reading this anymore anyway. But it's still fun to mess with.

Dude... The tire totally flew off my car. Seriously.

ok... that's not my rotor. but it was too dark to take a picture of what my car looked like after the lug nuts fell off my front left tire and the entire thing (tire, rim... you name it) went sailing 200 feet or more into a farmers field, and sent my car screeching on three tires and a rotor for 50 feet or more. I really don't know how we didn't end up in the field, hitting another car, or flipping the car. I really don't know. And all we had to do to fix it is take lug nuts off the other tires, put the tire back on and Wha la' or however you spell that. Go Dad Kurt and Mark for coming to our rescue in the cold Northern part of wisconsin. Wolves could have eaten us. literally. WOLVES!

Ding Dong! The Witch is dead.

Life just got a whole lot easier at work. Not that I wished her gone... Well, ok. I did. It was so less stressful, and we've all been able to really show our skills. Mad Skilz yo!

So you'll have to excuse me while I envision little munchkins singing in their little munchkin voices. Tee hee.

I hate Friday the 13th, and not for EVIL REASONS. Even more than Lauren.

Dude. I hate today. Mostly because I have become old. Really old. 27 years old. I may as well just go buy a casket tomorrow. Gah. And it's Friday the 13th. It's just never been a good year when that happens. But that's probably just happen stance.

But, Battlestar Galactica is on and I have to concentrate.

Albania - land of the eagle

Ah Monday's! Not so manic, but nothings perfect. Not even the Bangles. Which actually really sucked now that I think about it. I mean their best songs are cheesy, except for the remake of 'Whiter shade of pale.' the old Simon and Garfunkle tune. That one kind of rocked.

But the whole purpose of posting today was to share the AWESOME experience I had today. To bad it's not my study. Anyway, there's a sister named Ruth from my hall who invited me to go on her study today. It's a study with a 16 year old girl named Nerteila, and her grandmother Katrina both from Albania. (hence the title - see there was relevance. Hey - It was in the 'Tower not long ago!) But anyway. Nerteila (NUR-teal-a) speaks ok (well, sorta ok) English and Katrina speaks none. Yup. Just enough for "Hi, how are you? Thank you." and the sort. It was a really good study. Really encouraging to see people actually appreciating what they are learning in the bible. Though Ruth was right - my head did hurt afterwards. So that was today... Who knows what other coolness tomorrow will bring.

Ps. Being an adult still sucks.

Adulthood does... Something... I've forgotten, what was I just saying?

Adulthood is a disease. Do not be fooled, or worse yet guilted, into thinking otherwise. Adulthood is not an achievement, it is a disease. We fight it and ignore it and hope it goes away, but ultimately Adulthood is a disease for which there is no cure. It is as inevitable as death and almost as painful. Adulthood takes root in your brain and slowly spreads, eating away at your zest for life until, finally, it metastasizes and youĂ‚’re left to carry out your days as a zombie.

RUN sweet fools! RUN! I'm not kidding. Run like the wind, run like well, something really, really fast. Superspeed times three. Adulthood is such a rip off. Eventually all we do is 1.) Work 2.) Watch TV 3.) sleep 4.) Rinse 5.) Repeat. Sounds fun, no? Eventuallyy all I'll ever do is worry about a mortgage payment and whether or not I need to pick up aloafe of bread from the store on the way home from work.

This was supposed to be something better. I was supposed to make my own decisions, stay up as late as I wanted and eat all the candy I want. What do I get? Snot nosed kids that think I'm 30, I haven't been to a show in forever, and I buy candy and Tim eats it. Grrrr... As for the decision thing! HA! All I do is try and make the decision that will cause the least amount of irritation in the long run. What is that? What happened to my ideals? Myphilosophyy? My unique Dawness? Gah! Phewy. It's been an irritating few weeks, and I've dishes to do. Adulthood's calling, and unfortunately, I need to answer.

But before I do - the few bright spots in my day:
1.) I'm going to Poland! yes POLAND! commencee joking) I'm hoping it'll be fun, as we've been accepted to the special convention in Poznan.
2.) I've fallen in love with eggradio. com It's my new favorite station to listen to whenI'mm online. Good mix: I went from Violent Femmes to Frank Sinatra to The Eels to the Weakerthans to Kermit singing the Rainbow Connection to Fiona Apple and a few Bands I've never heard of before. Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm good.
