The Next Day
So, lets give this another try. Lucky for us, Tyson had another softball game scheduled for tonight, you know, since he won that one last night and all.
Maybe he'll feel better if I buy him some peanuts and cracker jacks? Or maybe that will just make me feel better, ah well, either way!

The shirt remains in the back of my closet.

Ack! No! Not this one. Yikes.
Okay this is better. I appreciate that it is more um, recent if you will.
Okay! Lets get started.
Lets go a slightly different direction...
We could even add a little more length to it and see what it looks like.
Maybe I would like being a blond?
Or something a little more funky...
How about one of those cute pixie haircuts?
That could really be nice...
Yeah, that's really not so good.
At this point Tyson wandered over and wanted to see what I was doing. He told me that if you outline your face it makes you look like a cartoon. Maybe that only works for some people. I'm pretty sure what I actually look like is a drag queen.
Well, I would say that was really successful! If you would like me to give you some great ideas for a new do, feel free to send me your picture, I'd be happy to do it. As a bonus I will definitely outline your face in black so you look like a cartoon!
If I actually cut my hair I'll be sure to show you all!

I'm just gonna put it out there.
Don't you just love hearing the date of your birthday knowing that it is your day? I love that. Like on commercials, "Sale ends May 12", "Free phones May 12", "Buy by May 12".
Oh I love it, so much fun. May 12. Oh sorry, that last one slipped out.
I have found that I am beginning to feel the horror of growing older that many adults experience on their birthdays. I have also found that the discomfort can be alleviated by telling people you are turning 22 instead of 25. Most of my friends believe it. That's the beauty of still being in college.
I wasn't sure what I really wanted to say today besides that I felt in the mood to post something. So I think I'll tell a story that pretty well sums up my life.
One day, in about 3rd grade I think, I was outside at recess with my friend Jen. We were standing by a metal horse and I decided that I wanted to sing her a song.
"Jen, wanna hear me sing somethin?"
So I launched into my spectacular 9-year-old version of "part of your world" or whatever it's called from the little mermaid. I finished the final note with my childish shaky voice vibrato and looked at her waiting for the praise.
"Um, what's that?" She said, her eyes never straying from my face.
"That thing by your nose. Is that a booger?"
I reached up. Yes. Yes it was a booger. I'm pretty sure we called them cliffhangers actually. You can imagine how I felt. Luckily for us all I have pushed through the pain and have been able to sing again.
I just check my nose first.
I don't think I have ever shared that story with anyone. It's a refreshing experience just laying it all out there like that. You should try it. In fact you can tell me your embarrassing stories if you want. I won't judge you. And Jen, if you're out there, do you remember that? I hope not.
So that is the story that I have chosen to tell you on this momentous day. It is probably an innappropriate birthday story since it has nothing to do with anyone's birthday, least of all my own. But that's okay. After all it's MAY 12. My day.

I don't know why.
Anyway, about a week later I was thinking to myself, "You know, I should probably eat poultry. Chicken is good for you and it's not like it's a cow or anything. It barely even counts as meat!"
So I became a vegetarian who ate chicken. On rare occasions. When I could afford it. (I was a single, poor, college student at the time) That had a good run. I was feeling strong, healthy, proud of my new status as a pseudo-vegetarian when bam!

Tag #1: The Bag Tag
And here are the contents of that bag. I'm always surprised at all the things that can be squished into one little purse.
The main items are uh, miscellaneous trash, candy wrappers, a piece of candy (okay, I actually ate that piece before the picture was taken... oops) pens, checkbook, name tag from UMEA conference, bogus tickets to conference, lip gloss, 37 bobby pins (oh that's where they are!), and my trusty pitch pipe.
I seriously thought that doing this would at the very least get me to clean out my purse but no. I just stuffed everything back in just the way it was before.
Oh, and you may notice the lack of wallet in this mishmash. That's because it's in my backpack. Gotta love school!
Tag #2: Middle Name Tag
Now, I've got to describe myself using the letters of my middle name. Luckily it's a short one!
Okay! All done! Now I tag... pretty much anyone who wants to do this. Maybe if you do it you'll clean your purse... unlike me.
