So I found out that my one friend who I haven't spoken too in a while got sent to Iraq and naturally I wrote him a letter. Two weeks later I notice that I have voicemail. It was Brandon calling me from Iraq to thank me for the letter and saying that he would try calling me back in a few days. Once again I missed his call and you would think that 3rd times the charm and I would catch his next call. Nope missed his call for the 3rd time in a row. I don't think I'll ever get to talk to him. But the...

On Saturday night Kylie and I go to Kings and as usual we get seated next to New Castle's best. We first get seated behind some people who obviously don't know how to dress. But what put the icing on the cake for this adventure were the people seated next to us. They waited about an hour for their food which never came and when they finally told their waitress they informed her that their son never was waited on. So when her son was finally waited on he ordered a salad with his meal and when ask...

Went to Walnut St. with Jerz today to return a dress and to buy things for my other dress, I still need shoes though. So on the way back we went into Jitters and got a strawberry smoothie and got hit on by the guy who took my order. It started out by him practically over flowing my drink so that it was completely filled. Then gives us a 2 for 1 with the drinks. After we left Jitters Jerz got a beeps by a BIG man in a white van...he wanted her in his front seat.

Last night about 20 people from school went to laser tag and we split in teams of ten. Future reference if you ever go to Laser Storm take the left side not the right. You get killed on the right side. I wasn't gonna go but at dinner I got talked into it and I'm really glad that I did cause it was really fun. Michelle's sister Missy and I teamed up and were doin all these rolls that we weren't allowed to do (we even got yelled at). But it was fun, on the 3rd game after we tried for the Red Base ...

So on thursday after room draw I had Jerz and her friend Sasha go and see the new Scooby Doo movie. I don't think I've ever been so excited to see a movie. It was funny and better than the first. I only wish that I could say that I laughed as much during the movie as I did on the way back to school. Jerz decides that she is goin to take a grocery cart that was left by a mail box and 'try' and push it back to school. I've never seen someone have such a hard time pushing something. There were the...

Today (April 7th) was my 20th Birthday. My mom sent me a card with $20 for a 20 year old. After my philosophy class I went back to my room to find 3 Happy Birthday Balloons, a card and a stuffed animal from Jerz. Then I went to support my softball team at the game til I got sick and had to leave, but before the game started the team sang Happy Birthday to me. Then Er, who has been a hater towards me over the past few weeks, wanted me to meet her and Sara at the snackbar @ 6:30 for dinner (after...

Trip to Squirrel Hill filled with great lines:
-me: he has poka dots on his umbrella
Jerz: he's gay
-Jerz: You just poked me in the eye with the umbrella
me: No you ran into to it
-Bob (employee at Giant eagle who pushed a bunch of grocery carts into a few others): score!!!(cause he got all the carts lined up) and then he was like, i love doing that. Then he looked at his watch and was like almost time to leave, i hate when that happens!-me: golf umbrellas and construction sites don't mix...

Went to London March 13-20. The city was great but our hotel/hostel suxed ass. When we got back I gave them the worst feedback possible. But I got my pic taken with a character at the Tower of London and got to hold his weapon. That was probably the highlight of my London experience. Then we got to see Luke Perry in 'When Harry met Sally' and got to see his naked butt. We lucked out with the weather it rained maybe twice and the rest of the time the weather was really nice. THe plane ride on the...

On Saturday Erin and I went down to DC to see the Lakers. The drive wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be, except for when Er wanted to get pretty for Luke and we missed our turn and I was having a panic attack. But it ended up working out for the best because we saw a sign that said MCI center and it took us closer to where we needed to be. Soon as we walked in and showed the lady our tickets to find our seats Er screamed coz....well she saw Luke. Our seats were in the top section in the v...

So my mother calls me, a little calmer than normal, to tell me that my bird Rocky died. Its no secret that I didn't like the lil' f*cker but I only disliked him because he tried to bite me everytime I walked passed his cage. He was in my family a year more than me and I'm the still the little kid who made him a Christmas stocking and got him Christmas gifts. Just because we didn't see eye to eye on things doesn't mean I won't miss him.

Leaving for Peru tomorrow at 9am. I'll be back late afternoon on the 20th. It should be a fun trip I'm really excited about it. We're doing a full day of white water rafting, touring Machu Picchu, and then we're spending a full week in the Amazon itself at the Tahuayo Lodge. THere we will fish for piranha, do canopy walks, ziplines, and lots of sight seeing and lots of animals. And I dont plan on hugging any trees incase you were wondering. While I will be wearing my hunting hat, I will be donat...

So I went out to get my CD's out of Betsie and notice the foot of snow on top of her. Considering that she is a soft top, by leaving the snow on her is just asking for her roof to cave in. Being the good mom that I am I proceed to remove the snow from her. Then the plow truck guy comes around gets out of his truck and hands me this massive snow scrapper to use. So instead of being out there for an hour removing the snow from Betise it took all of 5 minutes tops. Thanks plow truck guy. So I move...

First the Lakers lose to the Mavs last nite. Then Denver loses to the Knicks (yes the Knicks), but Melo did have 25 pts, next NJ gets their ass spanked by Memphis (110-63), I keep reminding myself that I heart Jason Kidd and not the Nets, and then the Lakers lose for the second time in a row to Portland (112-108). By playing like this the Lakers won't win that RING at the end of the season and Malone needs that RING coz there is a real good chance he wont be back next year. Come on boys Karl too...
