fourth of july was a long and fun week. too much, too much. work wasn't always pleasant with all that fun going on. melissa made it in town from the nola and the fourth bbq was a smashing success. good food, good friends, more good food, wii playing. we do have pictures to prove that she was here i swear. they are just ugly and on her camera. i failed to take a single pic! - not even one - at the bbq. boo. hiss. thanks to all who were able to come hang out.

karl's sister and her family are also in town. we hit a traveler's baseball game. the guy next to us had a heart attack - er, chest pains - and had to be removed via stretcher from the bleachers. it was frightening. the game was pretty boring until the travs clinched it in the bottom of the ninth.. schweet.

tonight i am watching - in case you are interested - the MLB all star game *go pujols* and the second star wars (episode 5). karl is forcing me to experience star wars (i've never seen one - er that i can remember!). i am watching them the way they were released and just finished epi four. (the first film from the 70s). we had a long debate about which order to watch them. i know i have seen some of them; i just can't recall. my brain is too full of things to remember - like every single line of dirty dancing, the breakfast club, and the last unicorn. sigh. i can't be expected to remember it all. i must make up for years of forcing karl to watch movies like ten things i hate about you. god, i'm a sucker for plotless teen drama. i can't get enough!

and, holy crap, happy three year anni to john and leslie. check out their cute wedding pics on the robus blog. i can't believe it has been three years. we miss you guys.

Diggin' the braids. I had Pujols in a Homerun Derby drawing, but he didn't win. :( I lost $10.

Come on, you know that you have more movies memorized than that-- 10 things I hate about you, for example!
Yeah for the national league. they may actually win! Still waiting for Pujols though. Saving the best for last, I am sure!

right....like if you loved the last unicorn so much you would have totally opened it once someone went out of their way to buy it for you on a certain day of birth....hmmmm.......

ha! wii-tarded is now officially in my vernacular. and my mama always said that if i could memorize theorems like i memorized movie quotes and song lyrics that i would've been good at math. well... you win some you lose some i guess.

Don't say "Karl is FORCING me" to watch Star Wars in my presence. ;) When you're done, maybe I'll let you play with my light saber. If your attitude improves.
Hee hee.
