That Tall Girl


My First Real Trip to Kohl’s

One fish

Two fish

Red fish

Blu… backpack!

Sorry, I couldn’t help but use the fishies as a shoe in to my new backpack when I saw this shirt. (thanks mom for hiding modeling!)

Now what gangsta wouldn’t want this Tshirt?

While at Kohl’s I got my school shopping done. They had an awesome clearance section- which had just the things I was looking for: (jersey?) knit skirts. I also got some tanks to wear at practice- they were $2.80 each. I know, I’m pretty awesome at finding deals.

I also got a new laptop today- since the pink dell ain’t workin so great. You can see it next to my new baby amongst my new computer garbage:

Yeah, it’s an HP. All my friends but one got HP’s. They all like theirs. Therefore: I got a new HP instead of another silly dell computer. Haha, it was very funny: Dad said, “Now you shouldnt have problems with this one. At least I hope.” Then I thought my baby didn’t come with a charger. Called Dad and bestbuy to complain. Then I found it. Then I couldn’t find my SD card slot. Called Dad to say it didn’t have one (it’s crucial to blogging you know!) then he found it. Then I tried to put in my extended batteru, but I couldn’t get it to fit. Had Dad work on it. Finally I was right: it was the wrong battery lol. Now I gotta figure out how to get the extended battery when it’s not in the stores yet since this is such a new computer and I leave town in a week- and its currently on sale for $60 off.

Now all I’m concerned about is loading the *edited out* security thingy. I might win an iPod if I do this before school! I’m all up for free stuff and deals so if you ever feel like sending me stuff, go right ahead.

Sorry for the long post. I think that it could be mainly attributed to my outstanding humor, so your eyes shouldn’t fall out just yet. I’m off to watch more swimming/ get ready for bed. I’m tired and have a busy day ahead of me tomorrow. It will be my last saturday in town and last day of work/ saturday morning water aerobics.

Since I have aprrox. 2 weeks left until I move into *edited out*, I have been hurrying up they whole prep phase for college. I have to say that I have kind of put it off. Until now. I have been in the process of dealing with a boat load of dr.’s appointments. I mean a lot of them. I’ve already been to 2 eye, 1 dr., 1 dentist, and 1 radiology (checking for stress fractures in my shins!!!) appointment. I have who knows how many eye appointments left, a retainer check, a couple pt sessions (if they are shin splints), a follow up dr.’s appointment for my shins, and i think thats it. All of these are goin’ down in the period of 2 weeks 4 days. I know, it’s craziness.

All the craziness has worn me out. I’ve come down with a cold… it’s august people. Colds shouldn’t be had when it’s 100*+ outside! So craziness + a cold = no regular posts for the last couple of days.

Back to college. **edited out** 

**Despite the fact that I’m now an adult and take myself to my own doctors appointments, I asked my dad for help with dealing with Dell. My mom just recieved an email from my dad’s company’s dell correspondent who said that they were going to handle my problem, even though I’m out of the 21 day warranty period. Whoo Hoo, Go Dad! And btw, the Dr said no more running untilwe figure out whats going on with my shins. Hey, at least I got to my summer goal: running a 5k, last thursday!**



Mama Mia

Here we go again… mom keeps complaining about me 😛 . Guess what she told me? She said, “I bet half my problems will leave with you.” I know she’s joking but what’s a girl to do about major personality shifts that need to be finished in 2 weeks and 2 days (the time until I move into my new dorm room)? I could give you a list, but nothing in this world could get me to change. Nah, I was just joking, mom. I got you good though, haha.

Well, I guess that I might change my attitude if it meant that Dell would listen to me. Holy smokes, I actually tugged on my hair after I handed the phone over to dad, since I had alrerady haggled with technical support for 83.1 minutes. He managed the other 21.9 minutes. That’s right folks: a total of 105 minutes talking with Sam from India, where she learned english from “the start of school”.

Want to know what I was talking about with her? She said it was all things I should have talked to Dell about 2 months ago when I got this computer. Wthell. I am u p s e t.

 

Ok, onto happier topics… I got asked out recently (this hasn’t happened since 10th grade when/and I got stood up). By a complete stranger. Actually, his name is Jim; I know this from leaving him an angry voicemail after he called me twice (!!!) at 1 in the morning. He called me back soon saying over and over again how sorry he was. I told him, after at least 2 minutes of him repeating himself about his sorrifulness/sorrow, that he was forgiven. He called back 40 minutes later and told me “hey, I should probably make it up to you, for waking you up and all, and take you out to dinner sometime”. I said that wasn’t necessary. Miss A from work said that he probably meant, “make out with you” instead of “make it up to you”. I think she probably would have been right (oh no!).

Did you read about the recent study linking hott people to hott voices (yes, this is related)?? Well, not only did Jim sound like he was at least 30, he sounded, well, unatractive- but maybe that was because he was asking me out, him being an obvious creepster (btw I have an attractive voice to go along with my good looks so I KNOW this study is true 😉 ).

I guess there is the fact that I’m pretty sure that I attract wierdos. They tend to follow me in Wal-Mart especially. And honk their horn at me while I’m riding my bike in the park. And hit on me while I’m with my dad. And now they ask me out despite the fact that  I’m probably 2 feet taller than them.



OK- Let’s Go!

After my wonderful workout this morning, where I ran for a total of 30 minutes (a personal best), I drove by work to pick up my paycheck and bought some gas (for a low, low price of $3.79!!) before heading home. When I got home I started packing for my weekend trip to Oklahoma!

B has yet another basketball tourney where I will be in attendence. According to the parents of other teams, we are the team to beat. I think that’s a nice place to be in.

Back to me. This hotel has a cool set up. Since they don’t have a “little gym” inside the hotel, you can go workout at the gym down the road, Body Works. We drove past it, it’s a hole in the wall of a strip mall. I’m not expecing much. I guess I should be happy for something, rather than being left empty-handed. (Although one of the main reasons I go to the gym is to see gym-boy. Who cares about meaningful conversation- nothing matters once you see those baby blues- at least I think that’s what color his eyes are)

Ugh, my “t” key doesn’t want to work. Really, I’ve been left unsatisfied by this computer. It is slow, it jumbles up things on the screen, the touch volume control hasn’t worked well at all, I hate vista, and the extended battery doesn’t last the 4.5 hours it’s supposed to. I’m pissed off and I want to go to bed. Hopefully my w/o at that “gym” will cheer me up (??).

Watching his always cheers me up (but I won’t be watching it because I want some shut eye!)

**I wish that boy at the front desk would stop trying to make eye contact with me. He’s too short for me… And I’m cranky**
