I know you all share my feeling, so I'll refrain from a profanity-filled rant.

Yo. I need me some

Yo. I need me some chocolate rock to get me through 'dis studying. But don't give me none of that flea powder.

Have no clue what I'm talking about? Check out the White House's list of "street names" for drugs. Some of them made me laugh outloud!

...then David McMillin is for you! I've heard nothing but great things from this current DePauw student. His newest CD, Where I Belong, has received 3 1/2 stars from DiscoveringArtists.com. You can buy his CD, read listener reviews, and listen to some song clips, here. He's kind of a cross between Dave Matthews with the scruffy voice of Edwin McCain

I highly recommend listening to "Until Today." It's great.

So I boarded my plane

So I boarded my plane back to Indianapolis yesterday. I'm walking down the aisle to what I thought was my seat (in an exit row), and someone was in it. I said, "Excuse me, but I think you might be in my seat, or I'm reading my ticket incorrectly." The woman said she knew she was in the wrong seat, but that she and her spouse got separated, and she asked if I wouldn't mind switching. No problem with me, so across the aisle I went.

I climb over the guy with the aisle seat across from where I was supposed to be and settle in to my window seat. The man (heavier set and probably about 50 years old) and I engage in small talk...He lives in Anderson, I'm in law school, etc. A silence falls and I begin reading cases and articles for my law review paper.

Our plane starts to back out from the gate. I keep reading. We approach the runway, and I start to get my usual uneasy feeling. The captain alerts us that we are third for takeoff. I start to get really nervous. Once we start hurling down the runway, I can't read anymore, I grip my hands together, and start to breath heavier. We are no longer touching the ground (the part I really hate), and the man next to me leans over and asks if I'm scared of flying. Thinking that there is a very obvious answer to this question, I politely tell him that indeed I am, but it's only takeoff, and I'll be fine in a few minutes.

Thinking that our discussion of this matter is over, I go back to my breathing. All of the sudden I feel this hand over my clasped hands and a hand on my shoulder. I'm at a loss for words. Why does this guy think he can invade my personal space? Is he just being nice? I literally can say nothing. I glance over at the book he was reading and it is about Haitian mission trips. For some odd reason, it makes me feel a little better that this guy is religious. I'm sure there are sickos that have read the same book, but I played the odds that this guy was just trying to make me feel better. Plus, I figured, what's the worst that could happen? He grabs something he shouldn't, I break his hand and scream, and half the plane pounces on him. I was in no real danger.

He keeps saying, "It's OK, it's OK." After what seemed like an eternity, I finally look at him and say, "I'm OK now. Thank you." He releases his grips and leans back in his chair. He asks, "Have you ever tried prayer?" I informed him that I indeed pray, but that I was sure God had a few better things to do than get me through this takeoff. He says, "No. You are wrong. God doesn't want you to be scared and God likes it when you call upon him, no matter why you do."

I tell him that he has a point--partly because I see his point, but partly because I felt a but weird talking about religion with a total stranger. The conversation fades, and he leans his chair back to sleep.

Overall, I believe in my gut that this guy was trying to be nice and comfort me. Do I wish he would have asked before touching me? YES. But maybe I should try his way next time.

Josh beat me to the basket on this one...but I still couldn't resist posting myself.

It's showtime, folks. Basketball season is here. The IU fans even impressed freshman Patrick Ewing, Jr. Story, here.

He ain't seen nothin' yet. And as a fan, I hope we ain't seen nothin' yet either.

REAL excited about this--especially since I am flying back to Indianapolis tomorrow. I already freaking hate flying. So much for napping on the flight. I'll now have to be in my "if you look creepy I'll be watching you like a hawk" mode.

I had to watch last

I had to watch last night's game in a bar in Georgia where everyone was a Marlins fan. Not fun. But, those of you who know me know that that wouldn't stop me from cheering just as loud as the rest of them! Too bad it had to end in a heartbreak. Soon after the game I received lots of sad (and intoxicated) phone calls from my pals in Chicago. They said everyone just walked around looking like their pet had just died. I lived there for 8 months and am by no means a native, but I loved every moment and my heart goes out to them all. One of my favorite times in Chicago was going to a game, sitting in the bleachers, and heading to the Cubby Bear afterwards for some libations.

I have to say though, I got in some arguments with my native friends last night. Everyone needs to back up off Steve Bartman. He DID NOT lose the game for them. They lost the game for them. He obviously was just acting on impulse, and I could totally see myself doing the same thing. When something is flying toward your face, you stick your hands in the air. You ALL would have done the same thing.

I know he's been receiving death threats. Even Governor Bush offered him asylum in Florida. Are you joking me? I understand the history. I understand the heartbreak. But people are more outraged at what this guy did than what President Clinton did with his cigar.

Rearrange your priorities, people!

Would someone explain to me why no freaking water is coming out of ANY of my faucets?

Argh.

UPDATE: It was fixed at 6 a.m. this morning. The culprit? Water main break.

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't blogged for a couple of days. Fall break has begun and a much-needed week off school is here!

Friday I had a nice pre-b-day lunch w/ my friend Heidi and her mom. Then I met my parents who came in to town to celebrate my birthday with me. We had a great dinner at a new seafood restaurant downtown. We were later informed that Peyton Manning was there at the same time, but we didn't see him. We ordered the most FABULOUS dessert I have ever had--the caramel fudge brownie w/ ice cream (thanks to Heidi for the suggestion). It was sinful.

Saturday we had a day of shopping and spa planned, but Dad got a call from the hospital (he's a pathologist) and they wanted him to drive back home (2 1/2 hours away) to do a brain biopsy. He wasn't even on call, but the path covering for Dad didn't feel comfortable doing it. So, Dad drove ALL the way home, did the biopsy, and drove all the way back. I felt so sorry for him.

So, Mom and I had lunch, shopped a bit and I got a massage. It was AWESOME. She started in on my upper back and shoulders and then said, "I know this is supposed to be a full-body massage, but your back and neck are so screwed up, I need to spend the entire hour in that region." I said, "Do what you think is best." Needless to say, I think she was very right. I can barely move today. She told me I won Worst Neck of the Month for all of her clients. Guess law school might be a little stressful. She also informed me that I don't drink enough water. So, I'm going to try to do a little better in that arena. I just wish Starbuck's was good for you!

Dad met back up with us around 5 and we had a beverage waiting for him! Had another yummy dinner and I got some much-needed red meat in my system! Came back to the hotel and sang w/ the piano player. Can you beat that?

Woke up on this birthday morning w/ a nice hangover. Ouch. I'm home now and will be heading to the library in a couple of hours when it opens. I have a lot of law review research to sink my teeth into.

So, even though I'll be spending the bulk of my b-day at the dreaded library, I've already had a FABULOUS b-day. I'm so lucky to have such great parents, family, and friends who have made me feel so special this weekend.

I'm ready to take on the next quarter of a century of my life.

Ok, I'm all for MANY

Ok, I'm all for MANY modes of self-expression. I also think I have a very liberal view of what is artistic.

But this is insane-o even by my standards.

How about that necklace? PLEASE! Turds are most definitely NOT a girl's best friend.

I guess that makes me a pooh-pooher of poo poo art.

I hope this was an honest mistake by both parties.

My solution? Hey Wesley, give DPU the money back so they can get a GOP speaker for a change!

Thanks for the tip, Dave.

UPDATE: He gave back the cash. That was the right move.

So trusts and estates class

So trusts and estates class was about to start, and my friend, H, hands her cell phone to me (her FIRST cell phone and one she has only had for 2 months) and says, "What do you make of this?" I look at the phone for a moment and say, "Well it's turned off." She looks at me with a very puzzled look and says, "I didn't know you could turn it off."

We laughed so hard I think I heard snorts.
