Easily Amused

Hal and I discovered this site when Jennie and Peter came to visit. Hal is ridiculously amused by it and plays it often to annoy me.

IU doesn't believe in the American holiday of Labor Day, so while the administration and support staff, like Hal, have the day off, the rest of us still have to go to class. It's very strange to think that everyone is going to be having fun on Monday, and I'm not even going to be home trying my best to avoid the fireworks. Hal, being the proud possessor of a three-day weekend, is heading to Lexington tomorrow to sing at Fr. Tom's 25th anniversary mass. I am staying here to read and do some laundry. Our new church is having a grad student cookout, too, so I will probably attend that and eat a hot dog.

Today we went to the 4th Street Festival. It is an arts and crafts festival on, you guessed it, 4th Street. There were some amazing things there, but not a whole lot we felt like affording. There were a lot of places that were selling cool art and clay objects as well as places that sold some beautiful jewelry. We also saw a desk Hal thought was awesome, but it was $2,500!!! We did buy a present for Joanna, who is getting married next weekend. While there, we ate at The Laughing Planet, which sells organic burritos. It is very yummy and relatively inexpensive.

Potter, Potter, Potter, Potter.... Oh my. I can't get it out of my head!! Why did I click on the link? WHY? :)

We did buy a present for Joanna, who is getting married next weekend.

We were talking about this during class. Mrs. Ruehl said that she graduated in 2000 - I guess that means she was in your class?

Joanna was in my class. She also was my first friend EVER! We met when we were three. My family moved up the street from her (we don't still live up the street from her, though). So we went to school together from kindergarten through high school. We are incredibly different but still good friends. She was in my wedding last year, and I am going to be in hers. :)

I love the Potter Potter video! I love when Snape is dressed like Neville's grandmother :-D

That's awesome! It's good that you are still good friends. Have fun at the wedding and tell her that I said congrats even though I don't know her. :)
