Memorial Day

I hope everybody is enjoying a day off.

Andi, Karl, Matt, Louise, Jon, and Luke were here this weekend. The place was a baby zoo, but it was really nice to see everybody. Karl started to teach me how to drive a stick (I can get it out of first gear...woohoo!), and I had to go shopping with my sisters (lucky me). It actually wasn't that bad (except for the lesbian couple with a fake leg in the dressing room next to me). My dad, Karl, Jon and I went to a Dodgers-Cubs game on Saturday. They lost, but it was still a good game and a lot of fun. Overall it was a really nice holiday weekend.

Only one week to go. We said farewell to seniors on Friday, so that was pretty sad. This time of year always has that bittersweet feeling, although this summer is probably going to be pretty busy. I'm in the summer Senior Seminar, probably going take Psychology at the college (anybody want to join me?), and hopefully will find some way to earn some cash.

Our field show next year is the music from Disney's Fantasmic, so that should be a lot of fun. No word on section leaders yet...

Snakes on a Plane almost became a reality in Cairo as a man bound for Saudi Arabia tried to smuggle 700 live snakes on a plane. Now don't try to tell me that real life doesn't imitate the movies.

While we're oversees, be sure to look before you cross the street in India. Well, you better just jump out there and pray you defy the odds and don't get hit.

As the post on Digg says...words can not describe this. It is simply the best cursor ever.

Enjoy the remaining hours of your Memorial Day weekend.

I'm taking a class at the college, too. I probably might take night classes instead but I haven't decided yet. Is it somewhat entertaining to take classes there?

I actually don't think I'm going to take it. Senior Sem seems pretty time consuming and I do want a little down time. I took a few last year and it is well worth it. I don't know if I'd call them "entertaining," but it's a good experience.

I know where the college is but where to meet is where I am lost. Can you help me? I'll be on aim.

Is stick really... hard? My dad plans on teaching me on a stick, so, is that a bad thing?

Clark said...

It's not nearly as bad as some people (ahem my sister) makes it. It's probably pretty easy if you have a good teacher and a lot of practice-I still need more practice...

I used your name on my blog if that's alright with you.

Oh and I left a comment in the previous post of yours. I have no idea why but it is there.

thanks

The Buffet BC1106L-2-0* Prestige RC Bb Clarinet is of interest to me. $4,899

The prestige is a really nice horn...
Too bad the price isn't as nice.
