Today's events...

Today was really cool. I got to see a bunch of my cousins that I normally don't see. My Uncle Tom's son, wife, and his son-in-law. They are awesome folks. I also got to see my cousin Kathy and her boyfriend Arthur. Arthur is a fun guy, he's from India and works in insurance. On the weekends they help out at a vineyard and reap the benefits. I wish I could get back here more often to see and be with these guys.

My cousin John and his wife Kathy have a full bar in their basement. I told my parents that when I buy a house this was going to be their housewarming present to me. I need to start looking for a house so I can have my own bar. We head back to DC tomorrow. Maybe we'll stop at the shore maybe not.

It's time for bed... drank tooo much... 4 Buds and 1 Utica Club.

Things that thouroughly gross me out...

1. The liquid on top of the sour cream. I am never the one that opens it and stirs it. It gives me the dry heaves.
2. Skin diseases [i.e. ringworm (Tinea corpus)] things that are generally oozy and crusty. Whenever a wrestler asks me "Do you think this is ringworm?" I make them stand across the room from me.

That's all I can think of at the moment. Only two things gross me out. Not a bad list at all.

Family Vacations and More!

This has been a whirlwind occasion. My brother is working for a Representative so he gives tours and writes letters and sees how our government works close up. I'm kind of envious of him for being given this opportunity. What's a family vacation without arguing. My brother and I have little spats here and there, I guess that's why we're much closer when we're in separate cities. Anywho, we've walked about 20 miles or more in the past two days. My toe has a blister that scared the crap out of me. I thought it was some weird growth but it's a blister none the less.

Tonight we're in Cranston, NJ. We had dinner with my Uncle Jim and Aunt Pat. We also got to see the childhood home of my dad and uncles and the schools they went to. Pretty cool. The houses and schools back here are really awesome. They each have sooo much history. Never in Phoenix would you see people driving by houses and saying that's where I grew up... it's changed owners ... x times. Craziness!

My brother wants his laptop back so I have to be going. Picture updates to follow.

When glitter attacks...

And I'm not talking about that crappy Mariah Carey movie either. I went shopping last night. Of course I got attracted to the shirt that was all shiny and pretty. What I thought were really tiny twinkling rhinestones was really silver glitter glued to the shirt. I got the shirt on. Looked okay. Then I noticed that there was a slight silvery glittery mist in the dressing room. Oh shnikes! How am I going to get this one off now without become the Silverglitter Yeti. Needless to say the glitter stuck to my face and chest. Especially since I had that "I just came in from the hellish outdoors" glow to me. I had to do the rest of my shopping with people staring at me wondering if I was completely insane for putting glitter in random spots on my face or if it was a disease of some sort. The glitter is like no other glitter though. It is stuck in my pores! I have exfoliated my skin 3 times now. The glitter is still there. At this rate I'll be pooping glitter for the next week!
