Dumb People

On my drive to work today I was listening to a radio talk show. A singer was on promoting his new CD that is coming out soon. The conversation that followed made me so annoyed.

Host: Who are you voting for?
Joe: Obama
Host: Are you a registered voter?
Joe: Nah, He doesn't need my help.
Host: You know the race is pretty close and you should register because your vote could matter.
Joe: How do I register?
Host: Goes on to tell him how to register....
Joe: How many days do I have to vote?
Host: (kinda in shock at this point) Um it's a one day thing.
Joe: So when is voting day?

Me thinking is this guy serious?!

Host: Well actually it is called ELECTION DAY and it is November 4th. (Goes on to say how normal people have off of word to go vote..blah blah)
Joe: Man...I'm going to be out of the country on tour...Can I vote online?

ARE YOU SERIOUS JOE!? Please tell me you are kidding. This isn't American Idol, you can't vote online, or text your vote in, or call 1-800-VOTE-OBAMA. You actually have to take your dumb behind to a voting site and place your vote. You know in a booth....

I think if I was the host I would have told him you go ahead and vote online one less idiot voting for real :)

Goodness if people like him are voting I am scared for our country...Hopefully they won't know how to register or miss the "voting day". We can only hope.

Welcome home...

Mom and dad were gone this weekend. When I first came in the door from Bible study tonight dad called me down to ask me a question about something in my room. This is was my reaction to it...

This is what I saw...

Julie is turning mom and dad into WT. I think they should put him on the dock, what do you think?

September 1998
I was a sophomore at Oakton High School. I made the varsity field hockey team and was probably practicing and/or playing in games everyday. I remember Peed and I used to have so much fun. I made lots of new friends that year and was in the best shape of my life!

I was also playing fall ball for basketball. We would have the best time playing and just having fun. Man I miss ball.

September 2003

My first preseason at Furman. I was recovering from surgery in the spring on my foot. I was finally getting comfortable at my new school. My roomies were Mivvers and Katie. I used to love to go to the games and support all my football friends. We were probably killing ourselves at two a days during fall break. Ugh. What happened to playing for love of the game ?( see above)

April 2008

I was ready for school to end. Wait that was September of last year too. I took a trip up to NY for Alex's bridal shower. We went to see Avenue Q and had lots of fun hanging out, eating, and seeing old friends. I also went to Atlanta and I think back to NOVA. It was a busy month.

(it's amazing I know what a TO-DO list is)
1. Wake up early to get in the word
2. Give Reading/Spelling/Math Tests (I'm so mean giving them all on one day)
3. Decide whether or not to go to Athens for my bball girls weekend
4. Get my car detailed
5. Take a nap (hey I can be hopeful)

FIVE THINGS FOLKS DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME (isn't there a reason people don't know)
1. I don't have it all together
2. I am not as disciplined as I used to be
3. I
4. got
5. nothin

1. Going to others or other things when I have a problem instead of God.
2. Non confrontational. I let things eat away at me.
3. Not flossing every night before I go to bed.
4. Always have to end the meal with something sweet (I'm workin on it)
5. Don't like when people are mad at me.


1. Jacksonville, FL
2. Oak Hill, VA
3. Hempstead, NY
4. Greenville, SC
5. Six Mile, SC

Well, there you have it. It's me in a nutshell and now it's your turn! I'm taggin anyone who reads this blog. Whether you post this on your own blog or in my comments section, it doesn't matter! JUST DO IT!

Fallen but not Forgotten

Don't really have words for today... thought pictures say more. Every year I get emotional over the day. I can't believe it was 7 years ago, I still remember it like it was yesterday. I remember feeling the compassion, unity, strength, and spirit of random people in New York. I think that's why NY will always have a part of my heart. I witnessed them all coming together and becoming STRONGER. My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones. I'm thankful for my country and the ones who protect it with courage and heart.

The human spirit is not measured by the size of the act, but by the size of the heart.

God bless America
