Purdue 64 Penn State 67

In the words of Jessi Weaver…. “Seriously?”  This loss hurt.  It might hurt as much as the home loss to Illinois last week.  Having Hummel and Kramer out certainly did us in, but we are a better team than what we have been showing this Big 10 season.  I give PSU props for keeping us scoreless for the first 5 minutes of the game.  We are starting out 0-2… ouch!  Of course I want my mighty Boilers to win the Big 10, but most importantly we need to figure this out before March Madness.  I don’t take my ass up to Purdue every week to watch a team that’s gonna be out in the first round…. come on Boilers… make me proud.  (And learn to rebound please.)

The tube socks are coming back people!

St. Elmo’s Fire

Kyle’s birthday dinner took us all over the city but it started off at St. Elmo’s Steakhouse.  For those that know me, I don’t do seafood.  But I am trying to branch out and since we were at the place that’s famous for shrimp cocktail… I tried it.  Guess what? I didn’t like it.  You can officially check shrimp off my list of menu options.  At St. Elmo’s its basically all horseradish and a drop of ketchup for color. Here’s Kyle enjoying his.

Next we went to Nickey Blaines for cocktails, followed by Binkley’s for dessert. We were stuffed by the time the night was over. Good thing we had a chauffeur all night, so we were able to relax and just enjoy the evening.

Enjoy it while it lasts!

Today is Kyle’s last birthday in his 20’s…. a tear slowly rolls down his cheek… In honor of this monumental occassion, we are having 3 birthday parties.  One his friends planned, one his family planned, and one tonight for just us that I’ve planned.  I used to have week long birthday celebrations for myself, so I can’t complain about spreading this out over 3 days.  Hell I think last year I had a birthday month if not more!  (I miss you Steamboat!)  So, cheers to Kyle turning one year older and one year closer to the best age bracket in the world… 30+.  Happy Birthday Kyle!

 

No Facebook, No MySpace

So… this is my retaliation to all of my friends (and my brother) for hounding me to get on Facebook or MySpace.  I won’t do it!  Instead you’re getting this.  My very own webpage.  I feel like such a big girl!  I’m not sure how many people actually care to know my daily thoughts or what mindless activities I fill my time with, but now you all have a chance to learn.  I’ll do my best to be entertaining and intellectual but I can’t promise you won’t read some things that will make you think I belong in a looney bin.

Welcome to my world!
