"Dead week," being typical, is crapping right in my face.
And I can't believe that I'm graduating(hopefullly) in 2 1/2 weeks.
Now taking bets on whether I will graduate or not....

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
Despite the fact that this entry has little or nothing to do with Mr. Rogers, I would like to point out that today was a wonderful day. Not only was it warm and sunshiny for a very large portion, it also rained.
The thing, however, that transcended all else and made this day extra special, is a little known fact of which I'm not quite sure any of you are aware. Alright, here it is: today is Nickey and my 6 month anniversary.
I am amazed at how incredibly wonderful she is and how I can continually fall more in love with her. The months have passed so quickly that I can hardly believe it. She is wonderful in all she does, and she makes me feel....I'm just blown away. I love you, sweetheart.

So I figured that it was about time I posted another blog entry, since I'm somewhat pathetic and haven't really said anything of note in a long, long while.
You know what? I don't think that I really have anything of note to say right now.
I do have to agree with B though about the Madeleine Albright thing, though. It was most excellent. I would show you a picture of my ticket as well, but I'm not quite cool enough to have a webcam.
I think that's all I'm going to say...except the schedule for softball is up on the IM webpage. Go check it out. I guess we're "The PB&Js". *shrug*

Yes, yes, another entry about the most wonderful pastime ever invented. This one, however, has to do with the creation of a team, more specifically, a softball team. Cindy has introduced me to the fact that there is a softball tournament on the first weekend in April. She also said that we should form a team. I agree wholeheartedly. If you are up to the task, please leave your name in the comments section of this entry, and I shall maintain an updated list of the people on the team. So far:
Cody We've got a team!
Greg Payne(12:00 game only)
Someone named Michelle
James Hollingshead(Greg's replacement)

Hace el tiempo muy bueno...
...and since that is the case, I propose that some people play catch with me this evening at 5:00. I have been itching for the past few days to play catch, and I must do so with this glorious weather that we are having.
I have to go to class. If you're up for some fun, leave me a note.

I had something great here....but as with all great blog entries of mine, they are somehow deleted before I can finish them. Suffice it to say that the Lord is doing amazing things in my life.
So...I went to the dollar store for the very first time on Friday. It's astounding. There is some great stuff you can get for only a dollar. Three Twix bars, for instance, or three Kit-Kats. How about a mug with a crazy ram on it, with yellow wool, blue horns, an Amish beard, an insane grin on his face, eating a flower, and wearing red cross-trainers? A great place, the dollar store.
For those of you who have yet to hear, let me inform you: this is the week before Spring Break. Where has the semester gone? I, for one, certainly feel as if I've barely begun.
Ah, yes. Also, the weekend after Spring Break, on Sunday (because Saturday is my birthday, and I should be home for that), early to mid-afternoon, we are going to play baseball. That's right, BASEBALL!!! Probably about 2:00 or 3:00. Everybody make sure to bring your gloves. Let me know if you are interested.
By the way....I love you, Nickey!!

Another little something, compliments of Dr. Matthew Cooperman.
“Farmhands R Us”
Take a look at a map. Now move over to the Western Hemisphere. Narrow your view to North America, then the United States, Colorado. Before you lose patience, peer at the southeastern corner of the state, along the Arkansas River. Do you see anything? Nope, and you won’t. As stated by Erma Ferguson in Our Great Southwest, “You know you’re in La Junta when you can look further and see less, when there are more trees and less shade, more streams and less water than anywhere else in the world.”
Bent’s Fort--it’s a great place. Many people have visited there from all over the country. You might even have been there yourself. If so, there is a very great likelihood that you have driven past a small farm on the north side of the Bent’s Fort road, otherwise known as State Highway 194. Were you to detour north of this highway, you would find there, nestled against a large canal, set in front of the rolling hills, a place where children used to play and where the chores must get done, day and night, rain and shine. This farm/ranch is the home of a family that has lived there for nigh 25 years, raising cattle, tending crops, and making a living. If you looked around you would be struck by how peaceful this place is, how remote. You are surrounded by trees packed very close together, and this creates an air of seclusion, which is quite comforting. To the north is the canal which you noticed upon first driving up, and behind that, the hills. To the south, east and west are gently sloping fields of corn, alfalfa, wheat and sorghum.
During the winter, you would see flocks of geese flapping overhead, circling as they contemplate resting for the night and settling down upon the corn and wheat fields. Canadian and snow geese both pepper the golden stubble of the fields and, if you are lucky, in the leafless trees at the eastern end of the farm you might see a bald eagle relaxing in its nest. Just this side of the bald eagle’s nest you can just make out a hundred head of cattle, red and black. If your visual acuity is particularly good you might even be able to discern the flock of calves running about, first this way, then that, as flighty as a cluster of blackbirds. As you look around you again, you are filled with a deep sense of peace and rightness with the world. You open the door to your car, and just before you get in, you take one last breath of air and you smell something, you don’t know what. Then it comes to you, what you smell that you didn’t recognize at first, but has seeped into you nonetheless; you smell the country: the trees, the grass, the earth, the animals. What you smell is freedom.
P.S. As blogdrive cannot or will not display Russian characters, I am not able to use the backwards "R" that you deserve. Blogdrive is sorry.

I would just like to say one little thing....CPPMS is BACK!!! As we all know, CPPMS is composed of the world's foremost champions of the noble sport of ping pong. They will be putting on a charity tournament in the Allison Hall lobby Saturday, February 21, 2004, beginning at about 10:30 am, for interested parties. All funds raised will be donated to a worthy cause at the end of the exhibition tournament, with the winner receiving lunch and recognition by the CPPMS co-founders.
For more information on this exciting event, please contact the owner of this blog at either his home or mobile phone number. Hope to see you there!
