zoom zoom!

My mom's is called "The Tribby". I like the star tribune and pretty much all things Minnesota, so for now, mine shall be called "The Stribby":

V6, 4WD, towing capabilities, great warranty, iPod cord jack (waaay better quality sound than the iTrip), the ability to have auto-start installed...ahh the capabilities.

This my friends, is my big girl car. Big girl, big car, big payment. Time to grow up I suppose. It'll be a bit of a struggle the first year while I finish school, but it won't be that bad once I graduate and get a job. A real job. With real, live patients. Eek!

Speaking of, today Maren and I were talking about how I was going to have so many bills to pay all by myself. And new bills that I never paid previously (like life insurance and car insurance & registration - my dad promised to pay car ins/reg until I graduated). I'm so effed!

So anyway, if anyone has a better suggestion for a name, I'm open! Comment!

Saint Paddy's 2009

My first Saint Paddy's! Yes, I am 24, but all of my other chances, I was in a van on my way to/from New Orleans doing Katrina relief. So my day started at 10:30 when I woke up for Boondock Saints, Killian's and Fruit Loops. After lunch, Kylie and I headed downtown to meet Jess and Peter at the Dubliner.

The Irish Band!

Kylie, myself, and Jess. I'd say this is at least 3 beers in.

We drank there (they ran OUT OF KILLIAN'S!! I was going to punch someone in the neck!!! (Thank's Jen Lancaster) I had to switch to Harp b/c I was too drunk and it was the first beer I saw) and then met up with a bunch of guys from school (that was a lot of parentheses). One of the bartenders asked me about my tattoo. Turns out she's good friends with the artist and she recognized it. Creepy/Cool! From there, we all headed to O'Connor's where I switched to gross, totally non-celebrational (not a word) Miller Lite. I had to drive to west Omaha at 7:00 so I needed to switch and taper. We went to Barry O's to finish our tour of downtown. At 7, I headed west. Had dinner at the Melting Pot with Keri, Sean and Maddy and then finished the night watching Australia, which I thought was going to end about 15 times. However, I did enjoy all the Hugh Jackman man-candy. That is one delicious body/accent/face/man.

How was everyone's holiday?

I found this site, Dear Old Love, through a friend on Twitter. It's amazing, description direct from the site:

About this

"Dear Old Love" is short notes to people we've loved (or at least liked). Requited or unrequited.

The ex-husband in Grace Paley's short story "Wants" says to his ex-wife, "I attribute the dissolution of our marriage to the fact that you never invited the Bertrams to dinner." If you're bitter, that's the way to express it here.

Please email pithy, specific "Dear Old Love" notes to dearoldlove(at) Posted submissions will be anonymous, and all submissions will be held in confidence. I would never sell or give away your email. (I wouldn't even know how.) If privacy is a concern, use an account with a pseudonym.

By emailing me, you're granting a permanent, royalty-free license to edit and use your "Dear Old Love" note in any way, but your note will remain anonymous. I'll admit: it has long been a dream of mine to do a Point of Purchase novelty book. My name is Andy Selsberg. Thanks. Enjoy.

My submission rings true to me, to how I feel about him (my first true love) and to who we are. Can you guess which one it was? (a clue: it was posted within the past week)

wow, I am bad

I have not updated in like a year and a half. Probably because I started PT school (which was heinous, I might add) and a new blog. A blog for runners who have girls. Anyway you can find it here. Fantasticness. 

I've got pretty much nothing exciting going on, but my hair is a different color now:

I dig it. Went dark at the beginning of November. Will likely head back to blond here very soon. I have to decide if I want to be blond for my graduation photo. Anyone have thoughts?
