Bet You Didn't Know...

You Are Apple Cider

Smooth and comforting. But downright nasty when cold.
What Your Sleeping Position Says

You are calm and rational.
You are also giving and kind - a great friend.
You are easy going and trusting.
However, you are too sensible to fall for mind games.
You are

Beantown, baby, BEANTOWN!

I'm mostly going for the New England Beer Fest but I'm so excited about going somewhere with so much history and political perspective. Can't wait. I'm definitely going to the Museum of Fine Arts and hopefully the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum too. I'd love to read and people-watch in Harvard Square. Most of all, I'm looking forward to just walking around and soaking up the atmosphere.

Caution: Naked Man Ahead

Say for some reason, you are bored at work. Your employer has restricted access to noncompany email. You enjoy reading blogs, much like you'd enjoy reading someone else's diary. You click on one, not expecting anything out of the ordinary.
Suddenly, there is a very very NSFW image in front of you. Definitely eye-opening. I really hope my "activities" were not being "monitored." YIKES!

Seriously though, if any of you ladies (or men, I won't tell) would like the link...just ask. I don't know how much longer it'll be up though.

Late Friday night, Sylvester the Rat left this earth. He was just shy of 37 months old and is missed. His love of food and enjoyment of life never wavered, though incontinence and hind-leg paralysis took their toll. Sylvester fathered 15 beautiful pups and his spirit lives on through his two cagemates and sons, Jason and Char.
Every day was a blessing and a joy for Sylvester. We should all be so lucky.
I'm trying out the Special K diet. I think I'm going to be sick of Special K before the 2 weeks are up. If so, I will stop. I'm not unreasonable. :)

11 days until I go to Boston. Can't wait. Gotta get my beer fest fix there because I have to work during the Festival of Wood and Barrel-Aged Beers (AKA the FoBAB) in Chicago. Darn it.

Road Trip to the South, Y'all

This past Friday, I drove just under 6 hours to Atlanta, where my brother and sister go to college at Georgia Tech. I arrived as my sis was scrambling to get things ready for the annual volunteer day and bro was recovering from an NC State football loss the night before. Here is a pic of E-So in his teensy tiny room: Had a fun sushi dinner, went out to Peachtree Tavern where a band called Scum Bucket (hehe an 80s cover band) was playing.

The next day was really relaxing...I got up late, visited my sis, A-So at the Coliseum (and snuck in to take a pic of where KU kicked some Buzz last season)and saw the Mock Rock dancers practice in the Delta Chi basement--which was really cool because the guys are incorporating some neat stunts, including a "human jumprope."
In the afternoon, I saw a replica of the GT Ramblin' Wreck (the actual car is hidden in a garage somewhere)
and hung out until A-So was done volunteering. Dinner at "the Snack" (maybe it wasn't called that) and too much partying afterward.
The next day I got up reasonably early and the 3 of us went to a small Waffle House. I wish I could say I was impressed. I wish I could say the food was good. The multigrain waffle did a reasonably good job of keeping me full on the drive home.

I learn new things here in Evansville, but going to Lawrence seems to faciliate the process. My dad has so much going on in his head and I enjoy hearing everything ~ Roman history, bird sightings, current events. It all comes together.
I always seem to recall the odd things for my blog though.

Saturday night, The D, Jodi, Kris and I met up at the Tiger for dinner and beer. We noticed the lack of peanuts available to munch on. Possible patron allergies did them in. The D said that PB&J isn't allowed at school because of the same reason. If kids bring it, they have to go to a separate room to eat!
Seriously. If a trace of peanuts is enough to make you extremely sick, I think that you might want to reconsider going to public school.

I love traveling, especially taking long weekends to make the borrrrrring days at "the Gen" go faster. In 3 days I'll be headed to Atl, Georgia to chill with E and A. I got my Outkast sorted in my CD case so I can play it nonstop during the 6 hour drive, which I'm hoping will be closer to 5 and a half.
And now, lyrics courtesy of Sarah McLachlan to illustrate how my day feels~

Your love in all it's finery
Tear up the darkness all around me
Until I can breathe again
Until I believe again

Cause I'm a trainwreck
Waiting to happen
Waiting for someone to come pick me up off the tracks
A wild fire born of frustration
Born of a world, oh, that gets me so high
I've no fear at all

But your eyes like midnight fireflys
Light up the trenches where our loves lies
Until I can see again
Find my way back again

I've no fear at all
To fall so deep into you
Loose myself completely
In your sweet embrace
All my pain's erased

And your mouth, it's all that I wish
Mercy of your lips, just one kiss
Until I can breathe again
Until I can sing again

Cause I'm a trainwreck
Waiting to happen
Waiting for someone to come pick me up off the tracks
A wild fire born of frustration
Born of a world, oh, that gets me so high
I've no fear at all
