weekend update...

TLC comes up with the most creative documentaries.  However, they are the least bit creative with their names: "The World's Tallest Person", "The 1000 pound Man", "I Eat 33,000 calories a day", and the list goes on. Currently I'm watching "The Boy with a New Head".  A little boy from Uganda is getting some major reconstructive surgery done to his eyes and head.  These documentaries remind me of my college roommate, Emily.  No, not because she needs a major reconstructive surgery done to her face, in fact she has a beautiful face, but because we would always watch these shows together.  I would even make her come out of her room after she was already in bed to see some of these shows.  Remember the tiny girl with the super high voice, Emily?  I do.  I don't know what it is about these stories that I like so much.  Maybe just seeing the positive attitudes despite their physical deficiencies or abnormalities makes me a little more grateful for my current situation.

Last night, my mom, Ruthie and I met Caleb and a few of his friends at The Varsity and went to a Braves game.  It was so much fun and by far the best Braves game I've ever been too!  In the bottom of the 9th, we ended up coming back and tied up the game 4-4.  Then one of our guys hit the ball so hard that he broke the bat.  It ended up being a home run, making it a win for The Braves!

Today was AB's birthday, so Happy Birthday to AB!!!  You don't look a day over 40...

In other birthday news, today I did a birthday party at the ice cream shop I work at.  Normally, these are joyous, fun occasions consisting of ice cream sundaes, Bingo, and "Pin the Nose on the Clown".  Today however, was not so much-- all because of one little boy.  He was so rude and kept telling the birthday girl "I don't like you" and "I'm not going to watch you open your presents!"  At one point he even said "I'm going to kill you."  Classy.  Oh and did I mention he was not even 4?  Luckily, for him and for me, I am not his mother.  

Back to the 8:30-4:30 life tomorrow... and the good thing is, I am looking forward to work.
