Christmas Elves

For Christmas this year, I wanted to get my sister a serving tray. A simple, wooden -slat serving tray with handles. That does not sound so hard to find, does it? Well, I couldn't find one ANYWHERE.

So, Dad and I decided to make one! And we figured, while we were at it, why not make FOUR!? So we toiled away in Dad's shop like little elves, making the trays! It was fun, and they turned out AWESOME. I have one hanging in my kitchen right now!

Halloween Party at my house!

Adam and I had folks over once again this year for the annual Uptown Halloween Block Party! It was a good time as usual. My folks even came! Then when Dad got home, he called my party pretending to be the cops! Ha! Trickster. I went uptown with only my I.D. and some money, and arrived back home with a ping pong ball and a whip!

The Past Four Months

Oooops, it's been a long time since I last updated, hasn't it? Well, where to start... Well now it's 2003! Eeek this is my first update in 2003? I am seriously ashamed of myself!! Okay let's do a quick rundown of the past couple of months.

New Year's Eve was really, really fun! A big group of us (about 16) rented an inn out in the country. It is a really cute little inn, with a kitchen and everything. So we had a big Italian potluck (lasagna, stromboli, ravioli, salad, garlic bread, etc.) and a party! We played games and drank some beers. The greatest part that, a short walk from our inn was a huge hot tub up on a hill! So most of us crammed into the hot tub and were in it at the stroke of midnight. That was really fun because the hot tub was SUPER hot, and it was raining really cold rain outside. So that was neat.

Um. In February, I went to Detroit! That was a blast! I went with Summer, Rabecca and Melissa. We stayed with Leighanna for the weekend, and her friend Karyn was down.Friday night we all went to Benihana's, this Japanese Steakhouse. It was SO delicious! Saturday we went shopping all day, and then that night we stopped by Emma's apartment for a beer. Her apartment was so cool! After that we went to this club called "Bleu". There were free drinks and appetizers until eleven. Free Absolut, that is. And MOUNDS of sushi and little sandwiches and veggies and desserts and stuff. YUM. We danced our butts off. Some guys asked us if were were part of the Ohio Dance Squad! haha!

What else... I had a fun party in February for my friend Kara's birthday! It is a tradition, this is the third year in a row that she's come to Athens for her birthday. We make sure to hit all the best eatin' spots in Athens, and to get girly drinks at Zachary's. The party was really fun, we played a bunch of games and watched some old embarrassing but funny movies that I made in high school. A small group of us stayed up til 6:30 a.m. playing Catchphrase! That was fun!

Two weekends ago, Jason, Summer, J and I went to Parkersburg to see our friends Aryn and Jeremy's new house that they just bought! We helped them move some of their stuff in (well mostly I just stood there and watched other people move in... oops. but I did take a lot of pictures!), then we went out for dinner! I got to taste my first ever fried pickle, and it was great! After dinner we went to a weird sketchy bar called "My Way." We played pool and darts. While we were there some guy at the bar bought the entire place a round of drinks! That was fun, I've never had that happen to me before! After that we went back to their new house and played a very cutthroat game of Girls vs. Boys Pictionary. It was crazy! The girls won, but barely.

This past weekend, we celebrated Summer's birthday Friday night at Skipper's. That was fun, as always!! The next day was absolutely beautiful, the first hint of Spring! Summer and I went on a good long walk in her woods. That was cool. I have no big plans for this upcoming weekend. Summer and I are planning to start Felicity Fest - which is us watching my Felicity First Season DVD Box Set. WHOOOO! She hasn't seen the show so it's going to be fun.

Okay, so I'm still alive. I can't believe I haven't updated in like four months. LAME!!!

Video Catnip

Mom bought this video called "Video Catnip," and it has videos of birds on it. You're supposed to play it for your cats. I played it for Charlie and he LOVED it.
