I work til I ache in my bones...

Tonight at work a girl did some "Reiki"* healing on my feet. She felt around, did some hovering and gave me my diagnosis:

I need a boyfriend.

While I may not agree with her methods, the diagnosis cannot be denied.

(Also, let it be known that I use quotations for Reiki because she really had no clue what she was doing. At all. She told me my solar plexus was in my foot. False.)

I was born in the arms of imaginary friends

In the spirit of March Madness...

Please note that vampires didn't even make it to the final four.

Oh, what do you do in the summertime, when all the world is green?

My friend Josh and I were talking last night, after my Pi Day party, about how we would like to be more social. Well, he was really expressing that he wanted to put more effort into being more social, I am maybe a little too social. Nah, that's not possible. Anyway, Josh suggested that this summer we create a "Fun Squad". A group of people who do something fun every week. We started brainstorming and coming up with things we could do and I grabbed a pen and paper to keep track. We quickly came up with more than enough things to do to fill the summer. Many things I can't imagine doing only once. Now I'm very anxiously awaiting warmer weather to get started on conquering the list.

Josh also laid out the rules for the Fun Squad:
  1. Have fun.
  2. No whining.
Here's what we came up with:
  • Baseball games
  • Bonfires
  • Roller derby
  • Demolition derbies
  • Various local city festivals including but not limited to Strawberry Days
  • Llama Fest
  • Outdoor movies at the Scera
  • Visiting the Storytelling Festival
  • Free concerts at the Gallivan Center
  • Jazz Fest
  • Tubing the river
  • Lazer Tag
  • Chinese wish lanterns
  • Visiting "the bottomless pit"
  • Fire breathing
  • Attending some sort of crazy convention. Trekies perhaps?
  • Tulip festival
  • Plein air event at Thanksgiving Point
  • Rodeos
  • Drive in movie
  • Rafting trip to Idaho or Colorado. Or both.
  • Riding horses
  • Kites
  • Recreating a George Forman BBQ/Rockband/Mixed drink party we once had
Do you have any other ideas for us?
Want to join us?

I feel you in my knees

Hello March!

I'm very happy to see you. You see, February was not the best month ever. Not even close. So I'm looking forward to enjoying you, March. You already look very promising with a snowmobiling trip, the Festival of Colors, several birthdays, two weddings and the third annual Pi Night. Plus I need to use you to prepare my presentation for the conference. (Eek!) I'm also looking forward to your warmer temperatures and less bulky clothing.

You really couldn't have come at a better time.

Good riddance, February!
