If this indicates the rest of the year.....

I'm in trouble.
Dan and I live about 2-3 miles from campus so we ride our bikes to school. I leave the house around 7:15.
Today... was the first day of classes and this is how it went.

It poured. I was on my bike. I had no coat. I had no umbrella. BOO. :(

Happy - "Late" - Birthday

Dan and I went to Raleigh this weekend to celebrate my dad's 52nd birthday. We had a good time - hung out, went to dinner with some family and came back to the house for cake and ice cream. Here is a picture. I made cake.

What I do...

So, yesterday I got bored, went to Wal-Mart, bought some fabric and made a baby blanket for my friend Desa.

One last thing - I am pretty proud of it and got the idea from a blanket that one boy I nannied had. It was probably 12 x 12 and after some research realized it cost about $25.00.

Anyhow, I made this blanket for about $10.

P.S. I've also made a pillow and a skirt this week....

When I was in middle school...

I remember Nirvana singing a song about "...sex and candy".

I never got that but, it was a catchy song. Anyhow, why do you need to reminisce about the past? To understand the present, of course.

We have an ice cream truck the lives in our apartment complex named Lil' Rina. It leaves around 3 or 4 and always stops in the neighborhood and is frequented by big men with no kids. I mean, I like ice cream as well as other big people... but, I just thought-- if I ever start dealing drugs -- I may have to take that idea.

This is not an actual picture of Lil' Rina.

Do you know...?

Who they call the "King" of Nascar?

Who also played "the King" is Disney/Pixar's Film Cars?

Who has had their picture taken with President Bush and Amanda McEwen?

That's right...
Richard Petty

...Even if you don't like Nascar, this is neat!

Maybe Charlotte does have SOME perks.
