flashback friday.

thought i'd do my own version and look back at my old xanga to see what i was doing in years past on this date. sure i could go back to '95 and look through my old journals, but so not to bore you...we'll stick with what i've already posted online.

2005 - an interview with buck at 1:30am...as follows...
"so you want a job this summer?" buck
"yea!" me
"any questions?" buck
"can i still be in kickapoo?!" me
"sure." buck
"alright!" me


2006 -

feeling happy i thought maybe i would give a little background on why i always end with happy day...

my grandpa vandercar served in ww2. he was a prisoner of war for 4ish months.

well when the war ended and he came home, one of the first pictures of him back in the states was in front of the station. underneath it he wrote...

happy day.

i love him.

2007 - this is in response to pete for his bear bashing e-mail yesterday.
aunt steph sent this one...

This morning a Gary, Indiana kindergarten teacher explains to her class that she is an Indianapolis Colts fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they are Colts fans, too. Not really knowing what a Colts fan was, but wanting to be liked by their teacher, their hands flew into the air.

There is, however, one exception. Susie has not gone along with the crowd. The teacher asks her why she has decided to be different. "Because I'm not a Colts fan" she reports.

"Then," asks the teacher, "what are you?"

"I'm a Chicago Bears fan," boasts the little girl.

The teacher asks Susie why she is a Bears fan. "Well, my Dad and Mom are Bears fans, so I'm a Bears fan, too" she responds.

"That's no reason," the teacher says. "What if your mom was a moron, and your dad was an idiot. What would you be then?"

Susie smiles and says, "Then I'd be a Colts fan."

i have had a few people here ask and no, just cause i am from indiana does not mean i will or should cheer on the colts. i have been a bears fan since before the colts were even in indy!

go bears!

2008 -

my toofers.

my teeth have been through so much in the last few months. quite a few fillings (6 teeth so far, some with multiple cavities) a facial on a chipped tooth, all four wisdom teeth pulled, two really good cleanings (scraping a lot of calcium from behind my permanent retainer, and i still have 4 teeth that need work. ugh.

the best thing though. after 9 years i was finally able to get my bottom retainer removed. if you ever saw me smile real big you probably noticed two silver things around two of my teeth. anyways...that is finally gone! it feels so nice!

check it out...
