Kristy is my Homegirl

HOWDY!

So Wednesday night was the 1st Annual Ten-O-Six Pumpkin Carving/ Lunar Eclipse Party thanks to Amanda's creative ideas. We watched the BoSox finish off the World Series, whoop, and had snacks. Kristy and Court brought over Cups of Dirt - pudding with gummiworms - and about 15 peeps total carved jacks out on our deck.

I've never carved a pumpkin before and I do believe it was one of the best times I've ever had doing anything that involved goopy sticky stuff and me having to pull it out of a hole.

I made two jacks: both from stencils off the Homestar Runner website. If you do not know about these cartoons, you are missin out on some freaking hilarious stuff. If you do, you would be happy to know that I made myself a Homestar pumpkin, and a TROGDOR pumpkin to go with it!

I am very proud of my battle wounds from the carving knives!

Wow, Kristy's birthday on Northgate last night was a BLAST. We started out with shots at the Dry Bean, as normal. I bought her an "Oatmeal Cookie", mostly because it has two of my favorites in it, wink! Then we headed over to Mad Hatters' and got some real drinks, I just got some Diet Coke & SoCo....it's so good, all of you are in denial! After that we hit up Logan's for the rest of the night, and topped it off with dinner at Taco C. Who knew the wait time would be 30 minutes at 2:30 in the morning?

You know it's a good night when you have heart to heart conversations with some of your very best friends, who have probably been drinking more than normal....honesty ensues!

This morning I didn't do a lot because I was definitely tired, feeling those last couple of drinks. I had rehearsal from 1-3 and then an aerobics workshop till 8....fun Friday, eh?
Then I met Nicole for dinner at Fazoli's, mmmm. We had a lot to talk about, unfortunately because things back in Garland were sad this week for one of our old drill team buddies.

On a lighter note, I am chilling for the rest of the weekend. Dancing in a show tomorrow and takin it easy because I have THREE TESTS next week.

Tales of Incrimination

Talk about digging yourself a hole, sticking your foot in your mouth, or any other catch phrase referring to saying something dumb in front of the wrong people. At least it wasn't me who said it!

First of all, let me take you back to the Fall of 2003, when I was dating an unnamed Corps boy. cough* grant speakes* cough
We stopped dating about a week after Halloween because I saw him twice with his now girlfriend Christy. You get the deal now. Caught red-handed, yadda yadda, yadda.

ANYWAYS. My roommate Amanda, and her boyfriend Francois ( the guy who set me and Grant up) were going to lunch, and happened to run into Grant and Christy. Grant completely forgets who he's talking to and says to A&F : "Isn't it great? Mine and Christy's one year anniversary is on October 29th!"

Funny. Pretty sure he was running around with me on Northgate last year, me dressed as Britney, and him as a cop.

My my my.....sir, I do believe you have been the first victim of....
TALES OF INCRIMINATION, part one.

Fun stuff, I had a mighty good laugh.

Anyways, I had three rehearsals last night, and I didn't leave them until 12:30. We showed the hip hop dance to Ms. Snell-Witt and I picked up a new nickname....."Britney"

I am riDIRKulously tired today and don't feel so hot, but I can make it...we're having a pumpkin carving party at our duplex tonight. Boy am I ready for that! One more rehearsal to go.....

So I heard you guys are obssessed with thefacebook.com now, thanks to me.
Here's a new one!
ICEROCKET
Supercool search engine, and it's still building up. The CEO is really young, so it's totally stuff we look for, and a lot more releavant than those other search engines.

And there's my two cents.....maybe even three. Catch ye on the flipside!~

Spiderwebs R Us

One of the coolest things about having a roommate that is an education major is that your seasonal decor blows everyone else's out of the water.

We're talking this place has got freakin' spiderwebs on the outside. Are you kidding me? That is so tight. I didn't even get to experience cotton spiderwebs as a child. Man, this is the life.

Bright Spot of the Day: I randomly decided to weigh myself in the locker room at Read today...turns out I have lost three pounds SINCE summer.....which totals out to about 9 total since May. That is somewhat fun for me!

Anyways, takin a little break before I nap and hit the books again.
I love tests more than stubbing my toe while getting a papercut and knocking my funnybone into a bookshelf that makes a dictionary fall on my head, bounce off, and hit me in the foot with the previously stubbed toe.
That's love.

One word: OBSESSED with thefacebook.com

I am totally obsessed with this new website, thefacebook.com

It is probably one of the coolest things I've ever seen...you can connect with people from not only your school, but schools all over. Ingenius! and so fun and addictive.....

I wish Mark hadn't shown it to me with this test coming up tomorrow, but I am trying to stave it off till tomorrow night!

Try it out, it flippin' rocks.
DEUCE!

I am sooooo in love..........

With a new softdrink!!!!

I was in the MSC today, getting a Vanilla Coke at the machine, when I was tempted by the fruit of another.
And that other's name was Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper.
I've had some good sodas...and I've had some great sodas. This one ranks up there in my world of delicious drinks containing artificial sweetener.
At least I'm heading for cancer on the aspartame train of goodness.

Got up super early this morning so I could get ready slow. I have not slept past about 9 in I don't know how long. This morning was 8:30....and it doesn't look like I'll be sleeping much anytime soon. One test and quiz this week, and three tests next week. BUH.

Went to church with the Markster, and then we went to get buffalo burgers at Wings n More. SO GOOD! Then I let him take a look at my team for Yahoo Fantasy NBA, because I am definitely in a public league! My team name is BUTTA DUMPLIN and I have the number one player in the NBA, Kevin Garnett. I also got some more sweet picks, but we'll see how the season turns out for me and my real favorite team, the Dallas Mavericks!

Anyways, I taught the hip hop dance for our Songfest routine today. It looks cute, and its easy, so hopefully it goes over well since hardly anyone came to practice. UGH....not so great.

Then I went over to the MSC to hit an efficiency high, studying for two hours straight!

And then I was bad. I went and got a really yummy meal, that was ridiculously unhealthy, but freakin' awesome. Blue Baker Four Cheese and Tomato Pizza with an oatmeal raisin cookie and an iced tea. I am not going to think about the calories that are ravaging my body and and plunging into my already dense fat stores.

I am going to think about how satisfied I feel that I got to eat it while watching a new TV show, Desperate Housewives, with my two pals Amie and Katie at their place! What a fun study break, indeed. Now I am hooked, and cannot wait for next Sunday!

So here I am, back where I belong, at the place I will continue my quest for Anatomical Excellence....the West Campus Bibliotheque.

It's good to be back and blogging again.

Me and Kristy with our Aggie Rings! Posted by Hello

SSSSSSSSSnap!

HOWDY!!!!

Coming off of a great day and I am back. Sorry the blog has been out of commission for a little while, I've been a slightly busy!!! I'm not even gonna try and get these past two months of my life updated, I'm just gonna start with this WONDERFUL Saturday and look INTO the future!

zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, zero, one....

HERE WE GO!

The morning began with what could be called another Hurricane Aggie. Thunderstorms at 9 am, so I got to sport the sorority pullover, whoop! Too bad I only have about a year to wear it, because I'd probably look goofy walking into a job wearing my cool letters on a rainjacket. Do people do that?

Anyways, Katie got invited to speak at Dr. Gates' pre game breakfast buffet this morning. I was lucky enough to be her date slash totally awesome support system. Does it get better than free biscuits, eggs, and coffee with my best friend? To my amazement, YES!

First we walk up to get our nametags, which were both spelled right! This was a treat in itself, 'cause everyone leaves the A out of Katie's last name, and put a U in my first name. A vowel for a vowel, wha wah whaaa.

The woman informs us that will be sitting at Dr. Gates' very own table. Wow!
Who else will be sitting there BESIDES the president of Texas A&M? Oh, just...
Governor Bill Owens of Colorado
Governor Rick Perry of TEXAS
THE one and only Lowry Mays
Rudy Rudiger, the former Notre Dame football player
and the big finish.....
Former President George Bush and Former First Lady Barbara Bush!!!!!

Intimidation for Katie was at an all time high.
All I was worried about was making sure I had enough time to meet the folks, get Katie pumped up, and down my delicious plate of TAMU brunch buffet goodness. And a couple cups of coffee.

After I had a cow, and called my dad and mom, and calmed down and prepared to meet some of the coolest people ever. We didn't even have to go thru the buffet line either...they asked me what I wanted, and they went and got it...I felt so spoiled. But then I reminded myself that I was getting pampered on my amazing roommate's behalf.

Meeting these esteemed peeps was quite interesting. Gates took a second from chowing down to stand and shake my hand. His wife was real nice, too.

Governor Owens was supercool. He's Texan, too, and a Republican at that. He saw that Katie had her speech and he snatched it from her to look over it."Katie", says Owens, "speeches are simple. All you have to do is read it. That State of the State speech is like 60 pages, but all you have to do is read it."Hmm....State of the State versus buffet....one seems a little harder :)

Governor Perry shook our hands... and said,
"Are you girls swimmers? You look like a couple of swimmers. You've got those svelte looking swimmer bodies."Katie and I weren't sure what he was talking about, or if it was a joke.
So we nervously laughed and nodded.....and I think we're both still trying to figure that one out.

At least he gave Katie a high five when she went up to talk! Totally sweetThen, the couple of the hour arrived. No, I did not get to shake hands with THE George Bush, but Barbara DEFINITELY did come over to introduce herself to me and Katie!!! It was one of the most exciting moments of my life. What an excellent woman! It only makes sense that she is a member of own very own chapter!!!

Gates called Katie up to speak....she did such a good job. We laughed we sighed, we oooh and we ahhhhed. Katie is going places, not a doubt in mine or anyone else's minds at this point. She was cheered on by some of the most influential people of the USA and made her impact this morning! YAY for the Shawty K!!!

Barbara Bush in particular enjoyed Katie's speech. Governor Owens had to explain what a "teasip" was, and when Katie mentioned our sorority, she gave Georgie a little nudge and a smile.

What a feeling, to be in that room with those people at that very moment!!! Can't get a feeling like that very often!!! EESH.Can life get any more exciting?

Here in Aggieland, anything can happen. Enter, the TAMU football team, in an all out battle to the end versus Colorado today. 3 seconds left on the clock, 4th quarter, us 23, them 26. We kick it, and TIE the game.OVERTIME! WE get the ball, and after one failed touchdown attempt, and some false hopes, we only managed to score three more points.....Colorado gets the ball, and on their third down they pass, fumble, and all chaos breaks loose!!!

We haven't beat Colorado at Kyle Field the past two times...and we are still tied with OU for FIRST place in the BIG 12!!!I can't even believe it...we are going to a bowl game!! Who knows what else may happen this season?

Maybe it's because me and Katie bought out very own Texas A&M bracelets. Hmm....now that we are "living Aggie" maybe we have contributed to the strength of the athletic program. Or maybe we have just gleefully fallen into another trend that makes us feel like part of the gigantic "Aggie Family". I'll take both.

I got home tonight and my little sister called and told me mom bought her a car today. It sounds so cute, and she sounds so happy. Now that my mom has a great job, we may be able to breathe for a bit....and that is one of the best feelings in the world. I can't stand seeing my own family not being able to get back on their feet, and not being able to do a thing about it.

I hope you all take the time to consider how lucky you are for what God has blessed you with. Family, friends, talents, sunshine...the list never ends. What a wonderful world.

Okay, back to watching Amateur Night at the Apollo. I hate to say it, but I love it when a white guy comes out and gets honked off the stage......hmmm guilty pleasure.
