7 Things

BrainMC, thanks for reminding me that I should blog. I'm not going to continue on the chain of 7, but I will post seven things that have been fun over the last few days:

1) GUITAR HERO 3!!! ROOOOOCK!!! A group of seven of us rocked it good, and rocked it hard on Saturday night. I attempted my first "hard" song and got owned by the machine.

2) UPS vs. UPS Alumni game. We old timers won, barely. I guess last year the alumni team just crushed the UPS team, this time we won 15-13 I think. I didn't really play much of the game, I spent a lot of time playing soccer with Jerry and Jenny's 3-year old kid, or playing in the co-ed pickup game going on at the same time. I did get a hand block in the UPS/alumni game though!

3) Classes. My Geography and Math classes have been going pretty well. It sucks to take classes in the middle of the day, but so far I've been able to have it work OK for me. Next week starts the job-seeking process... we'll see how that works out.

4) Princess Leia. I don't think I mentioned that a mighty fine looking lady by the name of Susie dressed up as Princess Leia for the Hanford Howl frisbee tournament and decided to plop down in front of me in the hot tub. I didn't know her, but there were twenty other friendly frisbee people in the hot tub, so giving her a massage seemed like the nice thing to do, after a long day of frisbee. When I looked around facebook last week, I found a Disc NW group through Will's facebook, and found a picture of a Susie. The picture is of her in full motorcycle gear standing behind a new Kawasaki Ninja 250. I couldn't really tell if it was the same scantally clad Susie from the hot tub, but I took a shot and sent her a message. She replied on Sunday and I might finally have a friend to ride motorcycles with! And that friend is a sexy, ultimate-playing, Princess Leia look a like, BOOM!

5) I'm observing classes at Salmon Bay K-8 School this week. Anna, my sister's old high school and college friend, teaches at Salmon Bay and said I could mooch some observation hours from her class if I wanted. She's a pretty awesome teacher, and she has a wide range of classes. From her first class where 1/3 of the kids have some sort of learning disability, to Language Arts, to Social Studies and a 7-person study class for kids who don't work well with others. She caps off the day with a Journalism class of 7th and 8th graders, who put out a newspaper for the school and the community. Pretty cool stuff.

6) I might be heading down to Portland either this weekend or next. Andrew wants me to come down this weekend, but that might interfere with motorcycle plans. Or, the weather might be so crappy that I don't want to ride my motorcycle down to Portland--nor would I want to drive the Exploder down and pay $50 in gas. But Portland would be a blast, and he also has Guitar Hero 3... damn addictive game!

7) I got a game of scrabulous in with Tessa last night in a rapid-fire format. Every time I refreshed the game she had already made her move. I was pretty sure I was playing against a robot. The game was super tight, and with my last two tiles, I made the word "Boa" to EXACTLY match her score. I thought we tied the game, but forgot that I get any points on the tiles she has remaining on her rack--so I ended up winning by... you guessed it, 7.
