I just membered something up exploration of that site I linked to yesterday. I did the haka at summer camp. Yeah. We were having doing like a week long olympic competition and I was on team New Zealand and we had to come up with a dance for opening ceremonies and there was this counselor from Australia and we were pumping him for information and he taught us the haka. I thought it was gibberish until. Just a dance that came out of his head. So yeah. Pretty fucking fierce.

I am in web design AGAIN! Yay! I still can't seem to figure out why my website is being a poop. Blah.
But I did dig up this little tidbit for you. Hehe. Be sure to visit the icon section for all you kids not familiar with the New Zealand All Blacks.

WOWIE! This has never happened. I have been "tagged" for a meme! I'm so excited. Thanks Sarah Eddy

1. What were you doing...
10 Years ago: It was 1995 I was 10 years old. I was in 4th grade learning bout geology from my crazy teacher who was a trained geologist but somehow ended up teaching 4th grade. Fourth grade was a difficult year actually. I was having social problems at school and didn't really have any friends. My grandmother was dying and my mom was going through her first bout with pneumonia (walking pneumonia) while trying to care for my grandmother. My mom ended up going on sick leave. Valentine's day my grandmother fell and broke her hip - doctor's couldn't perform surgery because of her heart failure. Granma died in March and I wore a sweater of hers all the time. The dress I wore to her funeral I never wore again. We moved to a different neighborhood that summer.

5 Years ago: I was 15. A freshman in high school. We lived in the same house we moved to the summer after 4th grade (and we still live there.) I played in the band and hated it except for pep band with Sworva. I competed in forensics and met Sarah Eddy and all the others.

1 year ago: I started my freshman year at RIT. It was a difficult year. My mother had been seriously ill and I was really homesick for the first few weeks. Things got better for a while and then in winter everything went in the shitter. I started playing rugby and the sun came out again.

Tomorrow: I will be spending time at my second home, the biomed lab and then off to the last happy hour of the season.

5 snacks I enjoy: strawberries, string cheese, pirourette stickies, honey crisp apples, the lunchables from the vending machine in building 7

5 bands/artists I know most of the lyrics for: Ani, Tori, Modest Mouse, Metallica (not by choice), Bob Dylan

5 bad habits I have: procrastination, forgeting to do really simple tasks, obsessively cleaning my bellybutton, saying i'm sorry for no apparent reason, not remembering the last one

5 things I like doing: playing rugby, knitting, sleeping, playing tacklebox at rugby practice, beer pong

5 things I will never wear: tube tops, low rise jeans, shoes that make my feet hurt, pajamas to class, toe socks

5 TV shows I like: Lost, What Not to Wear, Clean House (Niecy!), um I don't watch much TV after that

5 movies I like: Amelie, A Very Long Engagement, The Princess Bride, Mean Girls, Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion

5 people I would like to meet: Tori Amos, Debbie Stroller (the lady who writes the stitch n bitch books), my father's mother (does it matter that she is dead?) baby cousins who have been in this world for a while and I haven't met them yet

5 biggest joys: rugby, finishing a knitting project, playing scrabble with Dan and winning, being Erin's roommate, being Sworva's friend

5 favorite toys: my favorite toy was modeling clay and then i made my own toys

5 People tagged: Um, Sarah Eddy and Rachel E covered everyone I know who has blog so I am tagging my readers as if I have any. (This means you JD and Erin) So um, put your answers in the comments or if you have a blog/live journal leave a linkie dink.

Yup. Thanks for reading.

Wow. At least I thought the penis picture was funny. Oh well. So I would be uploading images of some of the stuff I've been doing cuz it just occured to me to update my blog but I am in web design again and on a strange computer. Oh well.
I am a knitting machine. I finished another hat today. Granted, it took me a bit longer to knit it than it did Sworva's hat but still a week and a half? Damn I'm good. Next on the docket is a hat for my dear brother. Awww.
Take a look here. It is Sworva wearing my handi work. Damn I'm good.
So um yeah. I wish I had images for you. Really and truly.
I feel all weird and squishy inside from rugby practice. We did hill sprints and played a mini game. It was kinda intense cuz there were about 6 girls a side. Granted, our practices are not nearly as intense as the guys' practices. I think they should be. I am trying to conquer my asthma issues so I can be a better player. So my goal for the winter is to figure out a gym routine that help me learn to breathe through some of the stuff we do. Part of it is that I am not in the best shape but the majority of it is that my asthma got worse over the summer and all of sudden I was doing fairly intense stuff and had no idea how to manage it. But I have to work on that this winter. I hope you all enjoyed that little bit there.
Sometimes there needs to be more time in my day.
My thought for the day: Harriet Miers and Bush have kinda a creepy connection. "Your the best Govenor ever!" If I told Bush he was the best president ever would I get appointed to a job I'm not qualified for?

Yo wasup?
Mmmmm. I love having massive amounts of work to do. I'm complaining or anything here, I guess I just need to unload. Parent's weekend if really fucking my shit up. I have a paper and a project due on tuesday I will be booked up all weekend hanging with the rents. I'm ok with that - they are going to give me a bunch of free meals and taking me grocery shopping and all that good stuff. I would feel like a total asshole ditching them to do work. I know my Mommy has been really excited about coming to visit and my Dad really wants to see me play rugby. I have a "musical arts" midterm tomorrow. Just a wee bit nervous for that. Ok. A lot. All those vocab words seem like gibberish to me. I think I'll do ok on the listening and short answer parts but the multiple choice not so good. I'm sorry. Let me know if I'm boring you here.
In other news, I've finished one hat in the great hat knitting project and have started the next one. Yet finding time to knit is also a challenge. But I sent out hat number one to its recipient today. I hope you enjoy it.
The Cockless Roaches won their first game of the season. We beat St. John Fisher 20 - 0. This after disappointing defeats at Fredonia and Geneseo. Hopefully some good rugby will be played this weekend against Brockport.
I gots all these neato pictures of fungi that I wanna show all y'all but I haven't gotten a chance to post them to flickr or my photo blog. Did I mention they are neato?
Goodness, I just need to get through the rest of this week and then monday and tuesday next week and I breathe a little easier. Breathing is nice. I like it.
I really post knitting related pics too but yet alas I have not been able to find the time. Maybe late tonight when I am up late going all crazy like. Blah.
