Well, I discovered life outside of blogging. And I didn't like it very much. There was so much I wanted to share with y'all. Things that I was excited about, like the Golden Palace and Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper, and the everyday life that makes me cranky, like stupid people at work, and maybe I would have actually gotten serious. But after consultations with my hairdresser's computer guy and the nice people at Office Max, I'm back with a new setup (spent more than I wanted to, but if it keeps working, it'll be worth it). Cause boy, did I miss you all!
I did manage to find a life outside of blogging, though. Actually, it was my sister Janna's life, but whatever. Saturday, she graduated from college with a double degree in International Studies and Womens' Studies. And yes, I was all choked up at the beginning, when they were singing the national anthem and I was thinking, "My big sister's finally graduating!" But then the commencement speaker started, this really boring dude who droned on and on about exercise and the twelve steps for living a healthy life. I spent the rest of the time making snarky comments to my grandmother, who was hissing at me to be quiet while she tried to stop laughing. At least it was a summer graduation; a regular one would have been much longer. Probably would have had a better guest speaker though. Austin spent most of the time being wheeled around and around the coliseum by his dad, but they all made it back in time to hear Janna's name, undoubtedly a big moment in his three-month-old life. I'll try to get more pictures up, but for now, I'm sure you'll be happy enough to know you can stop amusing yourselves in the old comments, eh?
