This is my first post since going to college. I have been moved in since Saturday the 19th, and classes will start on Monday. Let me tell you...being in college without any classes to go to is a blast! I've made tons of friends, and there have been alot of cool activities that the school has put on for us to do. There has been at least 2 carnival type parties, and a bunch of BBQs. A few nights ago, I went to see a hypnotist, who was hilarious. It was a great show. Then last night, I saw a comedian named Dan Gabriel. He was pretty funny too. The food is great at the dining halls. Today I got my bitchn' new laptop! Lenovo Thinkpad T60. Sweet. In fact, thats the computer I am on right now. It is the best laptop money can buy dude. My roomate is pretty cool, but he's not around all that much, so I don't really know that much about him. I don't really miss home all that much yet, but I do miss my puppies: Sonny and Cher. I also miss all my friends. Oh well. I'll be home for Christmas. LOL. Did I mention how cool my new laptop is? Very.

Fee TV (pt 2)

YAY!!! the TV came today. And its huge. Too bad I won't be able to watch it for at least a year. Right now its just sitting in the family room in front of the old TV. My dad is going to build a stand for it, so it may take a while for it to be hooked up. That means I probably won't get to see it in action until Christmas vacation. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, reference this page Fee TV (pt 1)

I got a facebook!

This has been a fun few weeks.

Aside from the sadness of leaving all of my friends, this has been a fun few weeks.

I had a lot of fun at the camping trip in the woods, and I enjoyed the LAN parties and seeing Superman Returns on IMAX. That was cool. David and I got to have a goodbye lunch with Mr. Robinette, and then we spent the afternoon at his house watching movies while we waited for 7:00 when we would all gather at Dominic’s for dinner. Not that the dinner itself wasn't fun, but I think the most memorable moment that night was the drunken lady who we encountered outside after dinner. I'm probably not the most worthy to re-tell the story, (because when I tell a story, I somehow manage to suck all the life out of an otherwise exciting event) so I won't. I'll just say that it was very hard not to laugh during our 7 minute, very one-sided conversation with her.


Anyway, two nights ago, my dad took me outside to the backyard and said "Come here, we're going to smoke a cigar." This didn't come as a shock to me, because I had suggested we do this about a month ago. So I was sitting on the back patio smoking my "first" cigar, and my dad keeps passing me a glass of wine to 'cool my mouth down' while we talk about all sorts of things. I don't know if it was the alcohol or the cigar that did it, but after I was half finished with the cigar, I began to feel light headed. Then when I was almost done with it, I began to feel really sick. My heart was beating really fast, I was incredibly lightheaded, and I was quite nauseated. About an hour later, after my dad had got me some club soda I felt better.

Now my dad feels bad for making me sick, I feel bad for getting sick, and I didn't get to finish the last 2 inches of my cigar. Oh well. At least we got to have a nice conversation.
