Lindz couldn't make it on Saturday so I stayed home and did nothing. I hung around all day and did absolutely nothing......It was wonderful. The only thing better than nothing would've been to go golfing but I'll settle for the second best thing that is truly nothing.

I've decided that I really like golfing. I'm not that great yet but I'm practicing at least once a week so that I can start to hold my own out on the course. Honestly, I wish I started playing this game earlier. It's been about 2 months and I can't tell you how much fun I've had playing. Most people might not be interested in it at first, but once you get the hang of it and you go with a couple of buddies - it's great. A few beers, a couple of good hits, and some really awful slices into the woods or the lake make for quite the enjoyable time.

One time, I was playing this course that had ponds at pretty much every hole. I sunk a half dozen balls that day but anyway, there were like a gajillion geese just chillin on part of each fairway around the ponds. On like the 2nd hole, I'm thinking to myself "alright just aim for the pin, aim for the pin." Sure enough, I hit the goose 10 yards away from the pin - right smack in the leg. My dad's like "oh my god look at that bird! It's limping! You made that bird limp! You can miss a 10,000 square foot fairway but you can hit a tiny little bird leg?!" I started laughing. I mean I felt bad for the bird but it was funny. I don't care who you are, that's funny.
