I am sitting in the dark in my apartment. The electricity hasn’t gone off yet, but I was watching a movie and now the movie is over and I am too lazy to get up and turn the lights back on. I have been playing hurricane all day, which basically involves me not doing anything but watching movies and drinking coke, while eating the occasional oreo. I forgot how much I love oreos, especially (or particularly) frozen oreos. Not that the weather has been too bad most of the day, it really only got bad around 2 this afternoon. And I have been playing hurricane since about 11:30 this morning. I did get up and go to class at 9:30, but I only had one class (Trust and Estates, which I really enjoy). Now, it probably would have been intelligent to sit in the library and do work, seeing is how I am behind in everything, but how often do you get to play hurricane? (this being the third hurricane in the last month, I’m not confident in the strength of this argument).

But the problem with being in the library is that I don’t know where my rain coat is right now, and without my rain coat I wouldn’t have a good way to get away from the library once the rain started. I wish I had stayed at the library though because they had a tornado drill, there was a tornado WARNING in Athens today. Isn’t that crazy? that means that a tornado was spotted. kinda scary. We are under a tornado watch until 9 tonight.

And the weather people don’t have a clue about what the weather is ACTUALLY going to do. They can tell you what they think, but it will almost always be wrong. It was suppose to rain all last night, but didn’t really pour until this afternoon. Right now it isn’t suppose to rain at the game on Saturday, but who knows. If it rains, at least it won’t be as crowded. My mom said she wouldn’t sit in the rain, so I can sit in her perfectly situated seat. I wonder if my dad will go to the game without my mom.

I know they are still coming the Athens, regardless. My parents love to come to Athens. Almost as much as my brother loves to come to Athens. I mean, I kinda wonder if my family would ever come to visit me if I lived somewhere that wasn’t much fun, like Macon. I guess they would still come sometimes, but I can promise you that I would see a great deal less of them. But hey, I shouldn’t complain, I don’t go home very much. Mostly because I like being in Athens.

The movie I watched today was MIRACLE. It was very enjoyable. I was pretty confident about how the movie was going to end, but that almost made it better. I watch enough sporting events where I don’t know the end, and I can only handle so much stress in my life right now. I borrowed the book from Nick a couple of weeks ago, and he has been hounding me to watch it, and I am glad that I did. Now I need to watch Tombstone. I love movies. I watched War and Peace with my parents on Sunday, and I thought it was great. I love Tolstoy, and Audrey Hephburn is awesome.

Last night was fun. I went to bible study, and I enjoyed it. I think the group is shaping up well, and I am really looking forward to getting to know all of the people in the group better. I need a group of people like the ones in bible study. I am so much more grounded when I am reading the word (i.e. the bible) and I am so much more likely to read the bible if I have something keeping me accountable like bible study.

After bible study, Cristina and I went to Moes, and Cybil met us up there. The weather was really nice, cool and breezy and muggy. After Moes we went to meet some of our first year friends at Wild Wing, but it was crowded so we went to the Winery. The object was to find somewhere that we could sit outside, and this was accomplished at the winery. We ran into Kipp, Desmond, and Michael, and shortly thereafter Christy and her two friends who evacuated the pan handle came to meet us. This was very fun because lately I have been spending a great deal of my law school time with Christy, Desmond, and Kipp. I love them all and it was very fun. We ended the night (basically) with a trip to Ga. Bar to chat with the first years. Almost every first year that I know was there, and it was really good to talk to them outside of school. I am learning all of their names, and I like so many of them, it is very encouraging. I know that I am going to miss my 3L friends a great deal next year and I feel better that the 1Ls are cool as well. I haven’t been out on a week night in a long time, but last night was great.

I think I am going to join the gang tonight and go bowling. I love bowling. I just wish the bowling alley in Athens sold beer. For the obvious reason that I love beer, but also because it would be so much easier to convince people to go bowling with you if you could entice them with beer. I know that this is everything that is wrong with the world, but the bottom line is that not everyone likes to bowl as much as I do, and they motives other than a love of bowling.

Okay, the wind is picking up, so I think I am going to take a shower. Mostly because I am dirty and because I don’t want to take one after the electricity goes out. I bet the bowling alley won’t be open the the electricity goes out. Ohhhhh, and I will miss the season premier of ER. Maybe bowling won’t happen, but what are vcrs for if they don’t tape shows that you miss…..this is the longest post I have given in a while, I kinda enjoyed it, I guess that is what happens when I can’t think everything out while running at the botanical gardens. stupid hurricanes….lucky you. kisses.
