One Up!

Lately i've started playing Super Mario Brothers again. I can't help it, it drags me in! Anyway there is this one fortress outside of the forest that i cannot pass. But the main reason for this blog is a conversation i had at work about SuperNintendo. I mentioned the level i couldn't pass to my coworkers-as it is a main point of stress to me in my life right now-and then i happened to mention that i had also started playing Ultimate Street Fighting and the hostess starts freaking out about how she used to play that game all the time. The dialog ensuing was the both of us practically yelling about our favorite characters and moves and subsequently demonstrating them. Our manager was not to be left out and quickly whipped out his cell phone, which had a version of Ultimate Street Fighting on it.
i love my job.

The Coast.

I recently attended a family reunion on the Oregon Coast. It was awesome, to say the least. I successfully reached my goal of entering the frigid, hypothermia-in-15-minutes, Pacific ocean each day of my trip. (Once at 9 o'clock at night, the single coldest moment of my ENTIRE life.) Fully immersed each time.
Almost everyone from my mom's side of the family was there which made for a hectic experience. Becca and I counted 75 people in all.
*getting infected from a bite inflicted upon me by my 2 and a half year old nephew
*my sister Kim informing me she needs to use the bathroom before me because she has a uterus. I kindly reminded her, i have one too. (she is pregnant)
*this one i actually don't remember but apparently i told my sister Renee' late one night as she was climbing into the bunk underneath me (I was asleep) that if she didn't stop making noise i was going to kill her.
*skipping the tea party my aunts put on to sleep and watch the movies crash and miss congeniality on tv, both have sandra bullock in them (just a fun fact) then making my brothers go back and get me some truffles.
*Lance gave each of us a quote for the vacation-mine was, "I'm ounce counting!" only because EVERYONE kept drinking out of my water bottle, constantly. I have to drink 1.5 liters a day, people.
