someday i want to see:
Ireland - where the palm trees grow
Italy - the sunflower fields
Australia - for the dingoes, and the platypus
India - during monsoon season
China - tigers, red pandas, Great Wall
Alaska - kayaking
Arizona - Grand Canyon
Japan - star shaped sand on beach
Galapagos Islands - turtles
Djabuti - just to say I'd been there
Thailand - because it has the world's largest elephant band

anyone want to come with me on my travels? it's gonna be... awesome. so i am really excited about old friends right now, let's hear it for RYAN JACKSON. home in three days!! what is that? all my boys are coming back... i got to talk to John tonight too. i had forgotten how much I love him. and i've been thinking about old high school friends who make me happy, i mean everyone makes me happy but... today i was thinking about sarah aldridge, heather wible, aubrey vance, allison veach... good times.

ha ha ha. well. i was thinking. strange i know but i was. and i thought about myself as like that game of battleship. and i was thinking about how maybe it applied to the way i react to guys. so maybe it's like we're playing against each other, me and whoever he is, and i have my ships all carefully arranged to protect what is in the center, cheesishly and clicheishly my heart. yeah silly and it's weird to say but that's the analogy. so i have all my little ships aligned to protect it and i am trying to sink his dumb random ships which have no particular importance or meaning before he sinks mine, which does. (this is my analogy it can be however i want) so in battleship the game you are supposed to place your ships and then leave them there, but in my game i move them each time to keep him on his toes, but of course his are glued down with super glue and then duck taped. so i move my ships around and the game goes on and on, and the person i am playing against changes every now and then as people get frustrated and leave, or take potty breaks, or take a nap or whatever. and sometimes i don't play against anyone and i just kind of sit and watch my ships floating around and i am so proud of them for being so brave and smart and being so good at protecting me. and sometimes i watch my little ships and wish i could throw them out the window and drown them in the real sea. and sometimes i stare at them and wonder what will happen if they are never destroyed and they protect me forever and ever and... yikes. and then i realized that probably what will happen is someday someone will come along who wants to try and play, and instead of giving me the chance to move my ships after each turn he will just pick up my board, turn it around, take my little ships out and put them in his pocket. and that's not fair. cuz now i have no defenses, and not only that but he knows all my tricks, and he's in charge of them. in short, he owns me. yikes. but, then he puts my side of the game back down and says hey i won lets go play monopoly. yep. i feel like it's going to be about that way.

Hidalgo, Seabiscuit, and etc.

I tried to find that quote from Hidalgo but alas, i failed. sorry. i will try again another time i am sure. and i will succeed. we talked about failure in my educational psychology class today, interesting stuff. i had spaghetti-os for dinner tonight. hm hm good. i have a song stuck in my head. it is simple plan's "i'd do anything" and i am pretty excited about it. but. i was reading jimmy eat world lyrics online today, because i am researching the band so when i say whether or not i like them it is based on a real understanding and not just ignorance. i have pretty much decided that if i ever understood what they were referring to in their music i might like them, but it seems to be way over my head or something because i just don't get it, and it's really important to me to relate to the music i am listening to. but there was one song that caught my attention and amused me. the lyrics are as follows:

I don't want to be up on a Friday night,
but I don't want to be there up on a Saturday night.
I don't want to be up on a Friday night,
but I don't want to be there up on a Saturday night.
I don't want to be up on a Friday night,
I don't want to be there.
When It's over when I'm starving, could it be yanked out of your hand.
Yep I'm the guy, all that you've seen and heard.
What about yourself now?
You're just the girl next door.
So now you're waiting to find out that it's something.
Wishing, to get your face up anyway.
Give it up dish it out now take it back now lift it up, turn it back now one more.
When it's over when I'm starving.
Take your hand to rest with your head.
Yep I'm the guy, all that you've done and seen.
Laying on the floor at 6:30 and you're here.
Say you want it so, so.
Just say it right you want me.

so i really have no idea what the song is supposed to be about, but i like to adapt music to fit me, and this one is highly entertaining taken that way. how it applies to my life that is. well it doesn't really apply, but you tweak and twist it and then it does. so get excited. i am so excited for christmas. we started practicing the music for christmas time to get ready and it's gonna be awesome. wicked awesome. no i am not from boston, but thanks for asking. alright. geography for reals now. nicole - get back to work!

"i was watching him watch other people watch you while he was watching you." so the word "watch" gets really exciting when you write it so many times. and if you read it too many times it kind of looks like it might have a different meaning. unfortunately, it was blank and nothing was to be gleaned. oh well. so it is kind of like that line in the song how does it go? "i saw you say that you say that you saw... i saw you" yeah. old school. alright. back to snuggling. sarah - we miss you at times like this.

p.s. sorry nicole this one was short. i'll write a better one for you another day. and thanks for letting me know i was an hour early. that could have been embarrassing.

So Kristy and I are getting ready to go to a Halloween party for little kids for the Big Brother Big Sister Club, and we are doing the haunted room. It's pretty exciting. I am a cowgirl and Kristy is a princess. How exciting! We carved pumpkins today too, and we decided to all put "facial expressions" on them. Stacy's is surprise, Jackie's is excited, Kristy's is "dorky" and mine is "seductive." uh huh. if you want to see a seductive looking pumpkin come on over, it's scary. no i mean it. alright. well that's all the news kids. have a great weekend! oh. and purdue had better beat michigan tomorrow, or i will be sooo sooo sooo sooo sad.

blah blah blah

so if you guys want to read more entertaining boling-ness read my brother Peter and my sister Mimi's (Michelle's) blogs too:

and now for me. well i am not up to much. of course it is midnight and i haven't started my homework yet, but at least i know what it is for tomorrow, so i guess technically i am ahead of schedule for me.

haha. wow. i am a mess. it's true. alright guys. it's that time again. tell me what you think about this little poem:

a Fountain in a Field
a Star in a Sky
me in my metro
reality is
the Fountain a sprinkler
the Star a ball of gas
me. well. just a girl
the sprinkler wants to be a Fountain
the ball of gas wants to be a bright Star
me. well. i want to be
everything to you
that you are to me...

but i'm not.
me. well. i'm just a girl.
the Fountain, just a sprinkler
the Star, just a ball of gas
and we are still

thoughts on this? i think it is interesting to think about. anyway. i am going to go do my case study now... maybe. good night!

rainbow connection

so, is it strange that i am currently taking inspiration on the topic of love from a frog? and not only a frog but a muppet? ok ok it's kermit the frog. he's intuitive though i tell you. he knows his stuff. i mean, read for yourself and tell me he is not talking about me and my situation with love:
The Rainbow Connection
Kermit The Frog
Why are there so many
Songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side
Rainbows are visions
But only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some choose to
Believe it
I know they're wrong wait and see
Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me
Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
And look what its done so far
What's so amazing
That keeps us star gazing
What do we think we might see
Someday we'll find it
That Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me
all of us under its spell
we know that it's probably magic.
Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices
I've heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound
That calls the young sailors
The voice might be one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
it's something that I'm supposed to be
Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me
anyway, so if you don't get it then try reading it again. and if still not and you are curious what kermit the frog and rainbows have to do with me and love just ask. we can chat about it. get your thoughts on the topic. anyway. i get to teach my kristy's lab tomorrow, so i have to go to sleep so i can be peppy. even though they are getting a work day to talk about their projects and i don't really have anything to do... i need beauty sleep. alright. peace. love you all! -amy
