I haven't posted anything in a while mostly because I didn't have anything to report. But the past few days have felt like one really long, really bad day. Since Saturday, I have passed out 3 times, been to the doctor, and rode in an ambulance to the ER. And all of this because I was/am dehydrated, have had a migraine for over a week, and am allergic to morphine. This weekend sucked. Oh, and for the few of you who knew I was going to Iowa this week to visit Chris, I am no longer going. Again, this weekend sucked.

Netflix sent me an email this week. Apparently, they are broken and don't know when they will be able to send me the next movie I have set up in my queue. Sad! The end of the email was signed 'Your friends at Netflix'. Yeah, well I feel like my "friends" just stood me up. Rude.

Holli and I don't know how to knit. We'd like to learn, but we haven't and probably never will. So we fake-knit with our Knifty Knitters, or as Holli calls it "yarning". We're both making blankets right now. Holli's is pink and black (big surprise there) and mine is green and blue. Marley likes to sit with us too. And yes, that is Desperate Housewives playing in the background. We LOVE it.

Owlz game tonight. The first delay, I gathered all my stuff (i.e. purse, book, blanket, ipod, phone, jacket - yes, I bring a crap load of stuff to baseball games) and ran up and hid under the roof of the concourse. I remained totally dry. Woo.
After we returned to our seats my friend Mike gave me an umbrella, joking that I may need it later. So it starts to drizzle again and I pull out the umbrella, put on my jacket, and wrap my blanket around my legs. I was going to brave it out this time since I thought I was super prepared. And then it just starting pouring down. My Mom and I huddled under my little umbrella trying to stay as dry as possible. Right. What were we thinking? We got soaked. But even though I was cold and wet the remainder of the evening, it was kind of fun trying to stay dry. :P

Holli and I were looking for something to do a few days ago and decided to go see Step Brothers. It had some pretty funny parts, but like Will Ferrell's last movie (Semi-Pro), I think this one would have been better as a PG-13 movie. The scenes that gave Step Brothers the R-rating were not all that funny and it just seemed like they were trying too hard.
On a side note, I've decided I no longer want to see the upcoming movie Tropic Thunder. When I first saw the trailer for this one (months ago), I thought it looked really funny and it made me want to go. Since then, I've seen the same exact trailer in previews at other movies and on TV so many times I could throw up. The fact that they haven't taken the time to put together a new trailer with different scenes makes me think that all of the funny parts were shown in the first trailer. So I'm going to pass on this one. Thanks.

actually fish, just go and hang out, but as we were walking around WalMart (prior to heading to the lake) I was told I was going to actually fish. So 45 minutes (side note, Old Man Withers works the fish/game counter at the Walmart) and $100 later, I have a fishing license, a pole, gloves, and a glow-in-the-dark bobber.
Holli and I didn't do much fishing. In fact, we didn't catch anything. The majority of our night was spent sitting in the car trying to avoid the mosquitoes. The bugs were INSANE. There were thousands of them everywhere, no joke. There were so many, they sounded like little children screaming and it felt like we were in a bad horror movie. Holli had a bit of a panic attack over them eating her (or her pole), which I got on video and is absolutely hilarious (sorry, Hoe), but I can't get my phone to email it. So here are a few pictures.

Does anyone know where I can find a template for my blog with 3 columns? I want to be able to put fun stuff on each side of my posts. And I still want to be able to customize the colors and fonts. I looked for some templates online, but I haven't been able to come up with anything that I can fully customize. I need a really basic 3 column template.
Leave me a comment if you know! Thanks!
