Right now the K-State Girls Basketball team is playing Marquette for the NIT Championship next door at Bramlage. Thre is just about 30 seconds left, and we are up by 10 points. And we just won! Yay. I don't even like basketball and yay. Winning a championship is always good.
Here's a thing. A protestors sign said "Support our troops, question the war." Do you see the catch-22 in this? "Support our troops." okay, can do. I agree with that. But if you "question the war" you are implying that the war is bad, so if the war is bad, then we shouldn't be there, then our troops wouldn't be there, or wouldn't have jobs. So support the troops, but question thier job?
We also went to the Gateway Arch. 630 feet high and wide. It is rather large. We went back a second time on Sunday so we could ride the creepy tiny tram to the top. I am a wuss. I was pretty scared up top.
It's broke. My semispinalis capitis, that is. Now don't panic. I went on-line, searched for neck muscles and realized what it was. I know it is my semispinalis capitis because when we were at Quizno's, I tried to turn my neck but it shouted "NO!" and I was stopped and writhing in pain. It was not a happy feeling. And now I know why.
Attacktix is a fun Star Wars game. You actually get to shoot with the models! WOo HoO!
Bumparena is a neat game from the Cranium people. It is fun enough for us, and easy enough for younger kids.
Fun times. We even used cheap sleds in the sparse snow. :) What a nice Spring Break.
Also, Japan just won the World Baseball Classic! Yay Nihon! Yokudekimashita!
While Shannon distracted the employees of Pizza Hut by gladly paying for the bill and leaving the usual over 15% tip, I struck. With camera in hand, I kneeled on the floor, sneakily stuck the camera under the forboding tarp and snapped a shot. I could see the flash through a tiny hole in the thick tarp. What was underneath? No one would have not expected it. Plywood.
This is a link from one of the math teachers here at school to a song about pi. It's done by Pi-Diddy to Lose Yourself. If you've got some time, check it out.
Not to mention how cool this poster is.
Rhonda and Michelle came up on Friday and we ate and sat around kinda fun though. We ate at Los Potrillos on Saturday and I did something. I did something crushing.
Innocent cup. Some person must have tragically forgotten you by my tire.
Just be glad it wasn't a squirrel. The sound probably would have been the same, but a little redder.
On a happier note, Michelle redid her blog and now it looks really cool.
It's nice to know my friends can do the stuff I endlessly teach my students. Thank you Lance and Maria.
Also on smartness, I talked to Dr. Boyer today and now I need to apply to grad school (again) and send in 3 letters of recommendation (again). But good news is, 6 hours (of the 18) from my education classes will transfer to statistics.
