My Life As the Favorite

Friday, March 02, 2007

Ok so here we go one blog every quarter of a year. I know you are all just dying to know what's going on in my world :). Well it is nearing the middle of the semester and I am swamped with work. I have had at least two exams a week for the last two weeks and two more this coming week. Also on the agenda I have three big papers to write, something I HATE doing. I am just not a fan of being forced to write about something.
Let's see there was a big holiday that my blog missed, so I'll fill you guys in on that. I had planned on setting up a kind of quest for Andy in order for him to get his gift. He was going to have to follow photo clues and along the way he would find little gifts. Well the finale was going to be him being sent to Cancun (a favorite restaurant of ours) and I would give him his big gift there. Unfortunately it had been a busy week and I hadn't gotten around to taking all of the necessary photos. I had decided that I would go early in the day and take a picture of the restaurant andthen have the photos developed at Walgreens the 1-hour way. So he and I had decided we'd meet at about noon at his apartment to exchange gifts. I still had about an hour or so to go so I thought I was doing fine on time. I pulled into the parking lot of Cancun to take the picture and there was Andy waiting in his car....apparently for me. Unbeknownst (sp?) to me he had set up a similar quest which I was intended to discover when i had shown up at his apartment. His quest for me (and no we hadn't discussed any of this previously) was to result in my meeting him at Cancun. Anyhow we both yelled at each other for spoiling the surprise. He insisted that I go his apartment anyways and follow the clues the proper way. So in the end it was a pretty good Valentine's if not ironic :oP We think too much alike. I bought him (and I) tickets to go see Jim Gaffigan at the Bijou Theatre here and he gave me chocolates and a bracelet.

Other than all of that nothing really has happened in the way of news. I'm excited about my spring break plans. We leave this coming Thursday out of Nashville. Maybe..just maybe Daddy will let me borrow his digital camera for the trip.

P.S. I have really really gotten into watching Ellen on my breaks between classes. I absolutely love that show. She is so funny and positive.
Oh and long overdue here is my Top 100...well at least 1/4 of it. I've written the rest, but I figured I needed to make sure I had fuel for a future blog.

1. I am a college student.

2. I will NOT always be a college student.
3. I love to travel.
4. I love the beach and often feel an extreme desire to visit it when I have been away for more than a year.
5. #4 most likely is my father's influence.
6. Jimmy Buffett will always make me happy and a little misty. It always reminds me of riding in the car with Daddy. I'm getting misty now...at school. I hate being a girl.









7. I am very competitive.
8. I consider myself to have good taste in music.

9. I love the Beatles.
10. I play lots of goofy computer games when I get bored at home.
11. Children make me very happy.

12. Stupid people do not.
13. I love nature.





14. When I am stressed. I always feel better just to be outside.
15. I try to workout regularly. That doesn't work out.

16. I saw Paul McCartney live in Atlanta and teared up a little bit.
17. I'm a dork.

18. Fall is my favorite season, though I'm becoming pretty partial to spring too.

19. I am the youngest of four, though in psychological terms I'm considered and only child. This is because of the difference in years between my next sister and I.
20. I have a quick temper sometimes.
21. I don't like to talk on the phone.

22. I love airline food. Not the quality, the surprise of what it will be.

23. I love having sauces for my food.

24. I don't like as many juices as I did when i was younger because they taste too sweet to me.

25. i have noticed myself liking more vegetables. most recently zuchinni (cooked).

I always go to your blog site just to see if there is anything there and usually just as quick see there is nothing and exit. Today I had to look a second time to be sure I was seeing correctly.

We might be able to find a camera for you, but getting it to you will be the trick. Daddy's flight for Las Vegas leaves early Thursday. Kiley may be able to take you to the airport(and give you the camera)if you can get to Daddy's office. Please sure to allow yourself enough time!!

XOXO

I third that, I did the same thing!

I think you get number 4 from me. It has to go in order right? I probably get it from him, you get it from me. Actually maybe you get it from Stephanie. I'm kidding! ;)

Airplane food!!! Ugh!!! Regardless of any surprise, I can't get over the fact that I'm in a virtual cesspool of germs and people breathing all over each other in close proximity. They could be serving me a big ol' slice of cheesecake and I coudln't enjoy it because of that.

Hurry up with the other 75, we're waiting!!

Hey I get misty riding in the car with me listening to Jummy Buffet... very sweet thing to learn about you.

I too anxiously await your next installment.
