I really should update about this weekend, cause it kicked ass!
Relay for Life
Showed up to the Rec at 7pm to meet the rest of my team before the opening ceremonies. Slammed an Adrenaline Rush and I was ready to go! After the ceremonies, Jametria and I walked the track for almost an hour before someonen else from our team took over. I swear, I've never walked so much in my life! (probably not true since I did hike quite a bit in boy scouts) We had an Xbox set up with DDR, which we charged $1 for 3 songs or $1 for 10 minutes of Halo2...we ended up making about $20 more for the cause! They had all sorts of entertainment there, contests, bands, etc. The funniest part of the night was when Erin signed up for the licorice eating contest along with the hula hoop contest. She "deep throated" 3 feet of licorice, without using her hands, in about 6 minutes and should have won, but the girl next to her was totally cheating! Right after it finished, probably about 3 minutes, the hula hoop contest starts! HA! I can't believe she didn't puke all over! Kinda looked like she was going to after the first minute or so, but then she tired out and quit...rightfully so! I knew I should have done the licorice eating...I would have schooled everyone! candycandycandycandy
After that the night kinda slowed down a bit. Adam brought his poker set, so we played a few games of hold'em, of which I'd never played before..and really have never been that good at poker...but it wasn't real money, so it was all good that I lost
Walked around for about another hour or so trying to stay awake..did about 15-20 more laps with Christina, Erin and Adam before going back to a bit more poker and some halo 2.
At 3am the drumline started playing! LOUD! Jamal, Jametria's son, was passed out and he didn't wake up! HA! After that things definatly slowed down, people started leaving at around 4am, we ended up taking off at 530a with everyone ready to pass-the-fuck-out. Which I did at 6am just as the sun was coming up! Haven't done that in a while
Mike and Joe at Starbusters
Woke up pretty early since I got back at 6am from Relay. Tooled around the house a bit with Lindsay before we headed off to Randall Rd. to get me some new shoes and pants and whatever else took my fancy. Found a pair of sketchers at DSW (yeah, they're leather, but I couldn't find anything that wasn't and I wasn't going to buy shoes online since I can't try them on first) and a kick ass pair of Merrells too (aparantly they're a good brand cause Moosejaw sells them (according to my sister))..and they're laceless! Wooo! Shoes I don't have to lace up every time I put them on! Ate some grub at Noodles & Co. before picking up some new jeans at AE and browsing some other shops around the Geneva Commons area before heading back to DeK.
Got back, dropped off the new gear at home, and headed down to Fatty's to see the Illinois/Louisville game. Fatty's was freakin mobbed so we went up to Starbusters (cause they have food and tv's too) which we were going to anyway to see Mike&Joe later in the night. I really wasn't sure who to root for since I live in Illinois but grew up in L'ville...if only Pitino (the cocksucker (long story from 10 years ago)) wasn't the coach
The show was really good! Actually, better than I thought it was going to be...to the point where I would go see them again, although probably not at Busters (if it's going to be that crowded anyway). Wish they'd play at Otto's again, it's nice in there
So at 2am, after 9 hours and 7 beers later, we made it back home. Hands down the longest amount of time I've ever spent in a bar, and I don't care to do it again anytime soon
Yesterday, slept in until almost noon....sweeeeet. I was supposed to hang out with Jen, but she got a call from Maddie and went to Polo to hang out with her instead. But my sister IMs me and asks if she can come out and utilize our vast computing resources. So we search, scan, print, chat and the like for a few hours. Took a nice walk with Lindsay before she went out for the night, played some Outlaw Golf 2 and made some headway on my goal to beat the game...we'll see if that ever comes to fruition. Didn't end up going to sleep until almost 3am...that's what happens when you sleep in I suppose
Yep, so that's the weekend. Went back to BB today and exchanged my new CD for one that actually contained a CD...from what I've heard of it so far, its all good
