Remember how I said I didn't know how to feel yesterday? Well shortly after that, I layed down on the couch, finished a hundred pages of catch-up reading for a class, and realized not only did I feel like complete and utter ASS but I had a 101 degree temperature! can you believe it? Yea I had to check it twice myself. Dana told me I was warm but I guess I didn't realize HOW bad I was. I'm trying to recover today but this curious back and neck pain is preventing me from doing any good for my body. I feel a little better but not quite like a rockstar:-)

Oh man, now I really don't feel so good. Maybe i shouldn't talk about this anymore. See yall on the flipside.

i don't know how to feel right now. Dana and I went out to Firehouse last night and I guess it was ok. I'm not a terribly big fan of the whole "i'm wearing next to nothing" or "I like women and I'm going to show it by humping something in a skirt for 6 hours" type of crowd. We ran into some people she knows and hung out with a few I know so overall I guess it was a good time. Welll, I think Dana may have had a better time than I did.....that is to say, i was driving - so the drinks were few and far between. I would divulge some other information but I fear this isn't the right forum to do so - SO I'll give you the PG version: (1) Dana dropped something in one of my long beaches, (2) dana also lost something, (3) dana spilled something in my truck - but it was on the plastic mat so it was ok, (4) I feel like my stomach is going to jump out of my body, and [due to #4] (5) I haven't yet started on my seemingly endless stack of homework.......yes it was quite a night.

maybe I'll feel better after eating an egg salad samich......mmmmm egg salad.....ugggggggggg......

You know who I'm talking to:

Stop. Seriously. I wasn't going to do this but I can't take it. I don't want your emails and I don't want to hear that you need to talk to me. I know your intentions as well as you do - please don't pretend that you have another motive. For three years it's been the same thing, you've appealed to my curiousity and my guilt but I'm not putting up with it anymore. I'm not interested in what you have to tell me or what you have to offer - you're not my type - so please stop semi-inconspicuous hints and obtrusive attempts for a connection. Please respect these wishes, I'm not going to justify myself any further. From here on out there will be no further acknowledgement........

As I'm looking at these MX pictures on my wall, I find myself thinking more and more about this developing dream of becoming some sort of MX racer. I know I'll never be as fast as my brothers or well basically any guy out there right now, but I can't help but think that with proper training and a little more practice I could possibly compete with those guys. I can't help but think I look the part when I stare at these photos - I'm serious. This isn't some sort of self-promotion or anything - I think I just want to be one of the few girls in the sport - or maybe I just want to be competitive again. Damnnit I miss soccer.

"Knowing where a word comes from can tell you a lot about what it means......For example, the word etymology comes through Middle English and Old French from Medieval Latin ethimologia, which is derived from Latin etymologia, which came from the Greek etumologia, which is based on the Greek word etumon, which means 'true sense of the word'."

Mmmmmmmm. Egg Salad samich.....

This weekend was more than I could ever ask for. Frost-bitten hands, snow on the ground, wet muddy clothes, a list of new bike parts for my dad, a few welts on the right knee, chances to show off in front of other bikers, and some general burning back pain to boot.....yep, this weekend was one of the GREAT ones.

And to you....today couldn't have started out better. Oh and the wine bottle compliments them off well :) thank you.

Last week, my dad and I were supposed to go riding. He cancelled because of the weather. I then rescheduled myself to go home for a night then come back up here to get some work done. Today, I finally decide to go to Psy100 AND stay for the whole entire class. It was cancelled. I will reschedule and begin some homework I have due next week. This weekend is the makeup weekend for riding. My brother cancelled already cause he's sick; which means his roommate's out too. Now my mom is going. Now we have to go to the cottage which means we have to go to Weber Lake instead of Grayling AND we have to ride the easy trails. CANCELLERS SKREW UP MY PLANS.

Don't get me wrong, I love it when my mom comes riding with us, I do. However, this weekend I was hoping to come home with some good ole bruises, dirty/sweaty hair, a bag full of muddy clothes, a list of new bike parts I need to buy, and maybe a few broken limbs. Now I'm gonna come home with back pain - not from the riding but from the stupid cottage beds. Well, maybe next time I guess. It's biking. I'll take anything I can get.
