Speaking of football....

Anyone planning on going to some ISU football games this fall? Or band competitions or any other fall events? Does anyone still go to band competitions (Jay)? I was thinking I should investigate what Minnesota has for competitions...Can you say Waseca and Rosemount? Anyone still have siblings in HS??

Speaking of ISU...

Only 8 more days till I get my personalized "ISU 2003" Nebraska license plates! And if we beat them (*again*) in football this year, I'll be driving around Omaha and/or Lincoln all day, showing them off :)

Out with a Bang

Well, the dorms I called home were blown to bits today.

No more will students have to walk under plywood atop chain-link fence to prevent such bodily injuries as getting clocked by falling facade.

Never again will water stream down the stairs like a waterfall, when some drunken idiot decided it would be funny to create a flood by stopping up the sink in the 10th floor kitchenette.

No one will ever have to carry their friend with a broken ankle down 6 flights of stairs at 3 am because some moron pulled the fire alarm.

No one will ever have to climb 11 (10 plus the mezzanine) flights of stairs to get to the top when the elevators are broken.

Never again will girls wonder why on Earth their are urinals in their bathrooms on an all girl's floor.

No more will water swish in the toilets on 10th floor on a breezy day.

Just for the record, I didn't spend an unusual amount of time in the bathrooms.

And even though I couldn't be there myself, and have yet to watch it on the web because I refuse to download a Microsoft plug-in (why, oh why couldn't they just use QuickTime?) I have my own little piece of Towers to treasure forever, a genuine piece of that crumbling facade. Not quite as cool, or historical, as, let's say, the Berlin Wall, but still.

Ah, the memories. And that's just what was directly related to the building, never mind the crazy people that brought an atmosphere to the place unlike any other residence association...

It was worth the walk.

While we're on the subject...

of wedding photos, there are a few that have yet to be shared.

Yes, I realize that I'm guilty of not sharing. But too bad.

I'll make a deal with all of you (tangent: I almost typed "y'all," proving that I've been in the South too long.) I see yours (ehm, Robert), you see mine.

So in case any of you are the least bit curious, now you know who to harass.

Jennifer and me at her wedding. I didn't necessarily think that both of us would be married before I turned 24, but here we are! Now she just needs a couple of golden retrievers :)

Jennifer's wedding

Here is my sister and her new husband at their wedding. Luckily, it was a very nice day out!
