Can't Wait

So it's around 6:30 in the morning on a Saturday morning.  It's cloudy, 30 degrees, and looks like rain.  Today we are driving to LaCrosse, WI for a track meet...where it is supposed to be even colder and wetter.  I suppose I shouldn't complain, we didn't go to a big meet this weekend where we had to do a lot of long distance traveling.  Didn't even miss a day of school!  I have a total of three meets left in my track career...can't blow this one; even though it will be close to snowing out. 

If you've tried to call me, and got a "disconnected" message, it's probably a bit obvious that I have a new number.  I'm not that blonde this morning to post it here, but if you need it...drop me a note. 

Alright, off to compete on the surface of Wisconsin's frozen tundra.

So tonight I broke rule #1 of life...never go to the grocery store hungry.  Let's just say I came home tonight with a LOT of food.  :)

Today was a heck of a lot of fun after my food science exam was over.  I went and took a cardio kickboxing class at Karate America (I'm so close to teaching them I can just smell it...), then I played at Madtown for an hour.  I found some super dork guys such as myself to play tramp ball with.  Let me tell you about this is the most fun thing ever!!!  It takes just about everything out of ya though.  So then it was off to the grocery store.  It was a bit more fun since I was STARVED.

Oh yeah...a wicked shout out (is that how you say it on the east coast?) to Jeff, the most kick ass polevaulter at Duke.  He's also pretty decent at turning a horrible day into a great one with just a phone call.  Oh...and he DOES NOT have any pictures, don't ask him for pictures.  ;)

Woah, enough of that inside stuff.  Tomorrow is another hardcore busy day.  I have a bit of R&R time this weekend, then I go into psycho end-of-the-semester gear.  Yeah, it's defiantly time for bed.  Goodnight.

Oh yeah baby, I FINALLY got to compete at the Mt. SAC track meet and I placed!  I don't really want to discuss the other results of last weekend though. :)

"I can satisfy her." -Doug's response to Britney's "I can't get no Satisfaction" that I have blairing in my room.

To Be, or Not To Be

There are two conflicting sayings in my life right now.  The first, (which has been posted here before), " Ever notice that the people who are late are often much jollier than the people who have to wait for them?"  Although this has been the theme for most of my life, now that I will soon be entering the real world maybe I should live by this one... "To be on time is to be late, and to be early is to be on time."    But then another question is brought up.  What do I do if, "I'm not a girl...not yet a woman..."

Dude...I'm late for class.

What an Idiot's definatly Monday.  I got up this morning, and half asleep, rode to my 8:50 class.  When I got there, nobody was there.  Why...because class is at 9:55!!!  I decided to ride my moped around since it is such a nice day.  To make the morning just that much better, I got passed by Mike on his new crotch rocket.  Now, I don't think I mentioned this before, but I was dumped about a month ago and replaced with this hunk of machienary.  Not that it isn't a cool bike...I just think I'm much cuter.  :) 

So J.R. mentioned on his website taht he will never mention his personal life.  This morning, I thought about whether or not I should mention mine on here at all.  Then I realized....OH YEAH, I DON'T HAVE A PERSONAL LIFE.  Problem solved.

Spring time story

Two robins were sitting in a tree. "I'm really hungry", said the first one. "Me, too", said the second. "Let's fly down and find some lunch."

They flew to the ground and found a nice plot of plowed ground full of worms. They ate and ate and ate 'til they could eat no more. "I'm so full I don't think I can fly back up to the tree," said the first one.

"Me neither, let's just lay here and bask in the warm sun", said the second.

"OK", said the first.

They plopped down, basking in the sun. No sooner than they had fallen asleep, a big fat tomcat snuck up and gobbled them up. As he sat washing his face after his meal, he thought, "I love baskin' robins."

So I finally have my new teeth....nothing too exciting.  I was at the dentist for like 4 hours last night...drilling, gluing, calking....but there are teeth there now.  Parts of the teeth are real, parts are fake.  Oh well, at least I can eat now.  

Today I'm going with my dad and some logrollers to the amateur logrolling tournament in LaCrosse.  Can't wait to watch the girls compete!  I am not, on the other hand, looking forward to 7 hours of driving today. 

Have a good day all, and when you bite into a nice juicy apple...think of your poor friend Shana who is no longer allowed to do that.

I am currently sitting at my computer with no front teeth. Pole vaulting can be an interesting sport.....I'm lookin' HOT!

    Kitty FINALLY pees in her litterbox!!! I'm so happy!  For those of you who are unaware of this dilemma, let me elaborate.  I got the cutest kitty ever from the humane society in November.  Over the past few months, she has gotten into the habit of pooping in her litterbox, then stepping outside of it and peeing on the floor.  I tried litterbox, new litter, new place in her room (yes she has her own room)...nothing worked.  Today I bought ANOTHER litterbox, and put it right in front of her other one.  After her dinner she pooped in one, and peed in the other!  I'm SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY!  No more cleaning up smelly cat pee everyday!  Okay, that was the highlight of my day.  Time for bed.   


       At Marquette, it takes two. One to change the bulb and one to explain
how they did it every bit as well as any Ivy Leaguer.

       At UW-Oshkosh, it takes three. One to change the bulb and two to
phone a friend at UW Green Bay to get instructions.

       At UW-Madison, it takes five. One to screw in the bulb and four to
figure out how to get high off the old one.

       At UW-Eau Claire, it takes six. One to change it, two to mix drinks
and three to find the perfect "J.Crew" outfit to wear for the occasion.

       At UW-Stevens Point, it takes seven and each one gets four credit
hours for it.

       At UW-Stout, it takes eight. One to change it and 7 to bitch about
how they wouldn't have gone to Eau Claire even if they could have gotten in.

       At UW-Whitewater, it takes ten. One to figure out how to screw it in,
nine to find an ugly enough lampshade to match their school colors.

       At St Norbert, it takes none. They don't screw.

       At UW-Parkside, none. All the students live at home so mommy and
daddy change the light bulbs.

       At Ripon, it takes 3, one to change the light bulb and 2 to get
behind him when he drops it and has to bend over.

       At UW-La Crosse, it takes 1, but it takes him 6 years.

       At UW-Platteville, it takes 5. One to change the light bulb and 4 to
hold the sheep still while he's on the ladder.

       At Superior, none- Superior doesn't have electricity yet.

       At Carthage, it takes 1, he just holds the bulb and waits for the
world to revolve around him.

       At UW-Milwaukee, none, UWM looks better in the dark.

So it’s been another unproductive night. I am suffering from hardcore senioritis. I decided posting to my website would be much more enjoyable than my Motor Learning lab.
So last weekend at Duke ended up pretty nice. There are some pics to prove it…but I don’t think those need to go public. Haha.
This is yet another week from hell: exams, Kinesiology Club Fun Run, Presentation, Logrolling pizza party, and the amateur logrolling tournament in LaCrosse. But guess what!!! I actually have some free time this weekend! What am I going to do with it? Any ideas? Okay, I should probably go to bed and try this studying thing tomorrow morning. Night night.
Oh yeah….Erin…if you have ANY MORE fun, I’m going to kick your ass. I’m only 2 points away…

Hey all!!! I'm at a track meet at Duke University. I didn't need to pay a million bucks to hook up my laptop internet in my room because there is a community computer in the lobby. Unfortuantly, there is a HUGE banquet going on behind me, and I think they can all read this.
Yesterday we competed in the pole vault. Oh yeah...update on the stinkin' poles. They were lost for good, so new ones had to be ordered. They were delievered to Duke an hour before we had to compete. Yesterday was the first day Tara and I had vaulted on regular size poles in about a month. We were both a bit sloppy, but we both managed to clear 11'6. I'll be back up to twelve soon. It is rummored that when we go to Cali in two weeks, we will compete in THREE meets in one weekend. I'm going to be a cranky camper after that weekend. Today I went to the meet to watch (the vaulters were all done!) and study. I have had my nose in a book all day. For those of you who know me, this is not very typical. If I don't study 24/7 before Tuesday, I'm in BIG trouble. Okay, time to complain...
This upcoming week will be another week from hell. I have an exam (that I am TOTALLY not ready for) on Tuesday, a paper/presentation on Thursday, the kinesiology club fun run on Thursday, and the logrolling pizza party on Friday. Yeah, um...HEADACHE. Oh well, I can make it, I'm a big kid.
I feel really bad for my daddy right now...he's at home alone sick, and I'm out here. I hate it when people get sick. I'll be home early tomorrow morning (Sunday) so I'll go over there and make him some soup. :) Well, there's a line for the computer, and I have to go study...bye!

Ever notice that the people who are late are often much jollier than the people who have to wait for them?

 I don't usually pass on sad news like this, but sometimes we need to pause
 and remember what life is all about.

 There was a great loss recently. Larry LaPrise, who wrote the song "Hokey
 Pokey," died this week at age 83.

 It was extremely difficult for the family to keep him in the casket.
 They'd put his left leg in and..... well, you know the rest.

"Exercise! - The poor Man's plastic surgery!" was on a postcard I got a few days ago.
Hey...whatever motivates ya.
MORE SNOW??!! What’s the frickin deal??? My whole LA decision is becoming easier and easier.
So my wonderful kitty, who I missed so much, is already driving me crazy. No matter WHAT I do, she won’t pee in her stinkin’ litter box. Now, she also has this habit of beginning her meowing, knocking things off of Shana’s desk routine at 5am!!! Maybe I will go back to feeding her at night.
So I have two lab reports due tomorrow, and a Kinesiology Club meeting to prepare for tonight. So what am I doing right now? Blogging and listening to Britney Spears. Ahhh, Britney. I’m mature on the inside…I swear.

Been home exactly one day now. Today the ground decided to get coated with snow. I want to go back to LA.........

So about those poles. Not a single airport in the country knows where they are. If anybody sees a random FIFTEEN FOOT LONG BAG WITH MY NAME AND ADDRESS TIED ON IT hanging around, let me know. If the poles don't turn up, we may not get to go to Duke next weekend. Oh well, I guess I'm not going to complain about another weekend off. Minnesota anyone? ;)
Time for bed. Goodnight.
Well…back in Madison. Cold, boring, school and work filled Madison. It was a great week away though; I really needed it.
So our last day in LA was spent with a HARD practice, then back to Santa Monica for some more shopping. I swear that’s all we did was shop all week…good thing I have a LITTLE restraint. Out of all places around there, I ended up buying some sweats from Old Navy…which we have plenty of around here in Madison. :) A red-eye flight back, and I got off in Minnesota…without my stinkin’ luggage!!! They wouldn’t let us check our bags to Minneapolis; they had to go all of the way to Madison. I was decorated with clothes around my waste, and packed in other girls’ bags.
J.R. picked me up from the airport around 6am. I can’t believe he did that…what a trooper. That whole day consisted of me sleeping, playing on the computer, sleeping, and some more sleep. When JR got back from work we went to a club called the front. Due to J.R.’s cripple condition, not much dancing occurred. It was still fun though.
On Saturday morning, I slept until 1:30. I couldn’t believe it. My sleep schedule was screwed up that much. Red-eyes suck. That night (which was not much after I got up) I went out to dinner with Zach and some of his friends. See, we were supposed to go to a snowmobile race/show/whatever. We ate dinner right next to the Target Center…and saw a bunch of little girls wearing their NSYNC puffy-painted clothes. I was on a mission. After dinner I found a guy that was selling tickets fairly cheap, so I stole Zach from his friends, and drug him to the concert. Now by no means did this concert live up to the Backstreet Boys concert, but it was pretty darn good. I think the best part of the show was when they dressed up in suits and sang a bunch of famous oldies…that got all of the moms going wild. After the concert we found out that Travis had come all of the way to Minneapolis to pick me up…he didn’t get my message that I went to NSYNC. I felt so bad…I still haven’t heard from him. I think I’m getting the silent treatment.
Later that night we went and watched some really fat people sing Karaoke. That was pretty crazy.
Yesterday Zach and I got some studying done in a stinky, smoky coffee shop (the only thing open on Easter) then I had an exciting ride back to Madison with some of the track girls.

Now I’m here, back to school. BAH. I hate it when you have a lot of fun then, BOOM, school and work is thrown right back at ya. Six more weeks…….
