This is actually really gross and I don't know why I took a picture of it (especially because I was driving). But I have hit a lot of bugs with my car in my day and this was the first time that after the act I had BLOOD on my window!! Kinda grossed me out. I'm guessing it was a recently full and content mosquito. FYI - if this is you, you should probably avoid freeways.

Do you think this will help??? I don't know if anything can be done to bring down the price of gas, but I seriously hope we can figure something out becuase otherwise I am going to have to turn into a hermit or just find a way to ride my bike everywhere.

don't forget to hydrate

I got a workout tape from the library because it said it was by a guy who does workouts for the stars.

I have never been a huge fan of product placement. I'm not sure exactly why, but I think its because it seems to me like ads are invading my entertainment. Like you can't ever get a break from them.

Anyway, today was a first for me, because right in the middle of the workout, Gunnar Peterson says, "Now would be a great time to catch your breath and get some water. We're drinking Propel Fitness Water." He lifts up his plastic bottle, label out to the camera.

I started laughing. Anything to make a buck.

the british are coming!!

I don't really know why, but it seems like all the new music I listen to lately comes from the brits...My best friend always thought I'd end up marrying a guy I met in a pub...maybe I'm just subconsciously headed in that direction?? Enjoy!

Oh the places you'll go...

I just got back a couple weeks ago from the most amazing trip ever. I haven't written anything about it because I have never been able to really put in words all of the things that I wanted to and have it make sense. It almost feels like it might be one of those memories that lives on better in your mind then on paper, but I want to get it all out, so I'll keep working on it. Anyway, that isn't why I'm writing this entry. When my friends and I were on our trip we met some kids at our hostel in Rome and one of them has started emailing me. He doesn't speak (or type I guess in this case) the best English (but then I can't do too well in Spanish!) but it is so fun to decipher what he is saying. I loved how so many people in Europe spoke more then one language. To be able to speak with people and understand them even though you come from completley different cultures is something that really amazes me. I love it. It makes the world so much smaller and open for you to explore.

I spent the day with my mom yesterday and we went to a quilt show (she is really big on quilting). There were a couple that seemed to really stand out. I can't imagine how much time and thought went into making all of them. It's pretty amazing. I don't know if I would have the patience! My mom had alwasys tried to get me into sewing when I was little but I would always start things and not finish them. I'm trying to learn how to knit now, and she gave me her old sewing machine, so who knows...the creative bug might hit me soon! The pictures up top are a couple of my favorite quilts from the show. I loved the "doodle on paper" one. Very cool.

tickle your funny bone

I got an email today with tons of signs...these were my favorite two.


Last night I was driving down the street and saw a Hummer police car. What is the point of this? How can a cop chase anyone down in a Hummer? Who pays the bills for the gas in that thing? I know I live in Colorado, but there isn't a ton of off roading around where I live. It just seemed like a very odd fit to me.

Rock the Vote!
