Hey guys,

Not too many exciting things have happened this week. I went to a seminar called "Career Paths for Psychology Majors" and learned that I have no idea what I want to do when I graduate. Seriously, all I want to do is be a mom, but the problem is, what to do until that time comes. Other than that, I registered for classes yesterday, and while the online system used now is undoubtedly better than the way they used to do it, it's still a royal pain. But as of now, I'm taking:

  • Lab Methods of Psychology (required, allegedly boring class)
  • Problem Solving Using Computer Software (because computer skills are always marketable!
  • Psychology of Aging (why old people forget things)
  • Ancient Cities: Greece (because I like history and needed an elective)

    Other than that, we're gearing up to watch the Gators whoop George Mason tonight at 6:07 (??) It's pretty cool that a basketball team from a football school has made it so far. If you watch the game, check out Joakim Noah. He is without a doubt the weirdest looking basketball player I have ever seen, and yes, that includes Dennis Rodman. It doesn't help that he's always doing that battle cry thing and he lost a tooth a few weeks ago. But before I get sidetracked, let me leave you with another wedding picture and then something funny I found.
    • Since you got to see the boys last week, I wanted to show you that yes, I had girls in the wedding party, too :) From left to right we have:

      • Kathleen (Bridesmaid, Mike's sister)
      • Melissa (Maid of Honor #1, friend from camp)
      • Me
      • April (guestbook attendant, my cousin)
      • Megan (Maid of Honor #2, friend from camp, and for those less observant, Melissa's twin sister
      • Keri (Bridesmaid, friend from Clermont and camp)
      • Rachel (Bridesmaid, my cousin, and April's sister)

      Just as a funny sidenote, I told all the girls the day before the wedding to make SURE not to hold their bouquets way up under their chins, because I've seen wedding where the girls get nervous and do that and it's not very attractive. Anyway, if you look at all the pictures that Kathleen is in she's always very mindful of where her bouquet is, holding it very low!

      My mom made the dresses for the girls (notice how they're all little different), and I made the shoes. They were Old Navy flip flops and I glued ribbon on the thong part. They were very excited not to have to wear heels.

      Now onto the funny thing:
      If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, might their "Who's On First?" routine have turned out something like this?

      ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?
      COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about buying a computer.
      ABBOTT: Mac?
      COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou.
      ABBOTT: Your computer?
      COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.
      ABBOTT: Mac?
      COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou.
      ABBOTT: What about Windows?
      COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?
      ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with Windows?
      COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look at the windows?
      ABBOTT: Wallpaper.
      COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.
      ABBOTT: Software for Windows?
      COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to write proposals and track expenses. What do you have?
      ABBOTT: Office.
      COSTELLO: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?
      ABBOTT: I just did.
      COSTELLO: You just did what?
      ABBOTT: Recommend something.
      COSTELLO: You recommended something?
      ABBOTT: Yes.
      COSTELLO: For my office?
      ABBOTT: Yes.
      COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office?
      ABBOTT: Office.
      COSTELLO: Yes, for my office!
      ABBOTT: I recommend Office with Windows.
      COSTELLO: I already have an office with windows! OK, let's just say I'm sitting at my computer and I want to type a proposal. What do I need?
      ABBOTT: Word.
      COSTELLO: What word?
      ABBOTT: Word in Office.
      COSTELLO: The only word in office is office.
      ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.
      COSTELLO: Which word in office for windows?
      ABBOTT: The Word you get when you click the blue "W".
      COSTELLO: I'm going to click your blue "w" if you don't start with some straight answers. What about financial bookkeeping? You have anything I can track my money with?
      ABBOTT: Money.
      COSTELLO: That's right. What do you have?
      ABBOTT: Money.
      COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?
      ABBOTT: It comes bundled with your computer.
      COSTELLO: What's bundled with my computer?
      ABBOTT: Money.
      COSTELLO: Money comes with my computer?
      ABBOTT: Yes. No extra charge.
      COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?
      ABBOTT: One copy.
      COSTELLO: Isn't it illegal to copy money?
      ABBOTT: Microsoft gave us a license to copy Money.
      COSTELLO: They can give you a license to copy money?
      ABBOTT: Why not? THEY OWN IT!

      (A few days later)ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?
      COSTELLO: How do I turn my computer off?
      ABBOTT: Click on "START"............
