Finals are over!!! OOH-OOOH!

Oh the weather outside is frightful, and my fingers are so cold I think its rightful...actually, it's not. It hurts they're so cold. I went shopping with my roomies today and I drove us to the mall. But before we could leave we had to give Joanna [my car] some serious TLC. Poor girl was covered in about three or four inches of snow and under all that, she was completely iced over. So we had our kitchen broom, and some really crappy ice scrapers to take care of business. I think I got freezer burn on my fingers. haha

Last night, I went hot tubbing with a couple of friends and I wanted to go get some snow from outside and bring it in the hot tub, so my friend "J" or "Kevin" (not sure which one he wants to be called...) came out to get some with me. Now this snow was not the good packing snow that you love for snow ball fights, this was like the snow you see in movies that looks fake. So I couldn't exactly grab a ton, without really thinking, I swiped my hand in the snow at J/Kevin and snow went all over his face and chest. I laughed and thought I was pretty hilarious, and then he ran to tackle me. Now I don't like to fall hard in snow with just a swimming suit on, so in the process of him tackling me, I just sorta knelt down and let him wipe snow all over me. But, I still ended up with battle wounds. In fact, it looks like a raccoon chewed on my feet. It was funny though. And then after the pool, we went and played pool. J/Kevin was winning until I table scratched resulting in Kenny getting a ball back on the table after he was out, and the game ended with Kenneth being the winner. J/Kevin blames me.

So, Christmas shopping. Basically, it sucks. Like I said, I just got back from shopping and I did not enjoy it. Except for the delightful lunch Sheesee treated us too. That was nice, but I hate shopping. GRRR. But in the midst of my unhappy shopping trip, I experienced something so joyous, it brought a glistening tear to my eye. There was a show choir performing at the mall. They were in middle school it looked like...They started to perform and it made me think of the show choir I used to perform in. (I won't go into much detail, or it could ruin your whole Christmas season.) But they had some dance moves just like we used to do, but they weren't so cheerleader about it. In fact, it was quite entertaining. I walked around back and to my most glorious surprise, the two girls on the back row were trying to make each other fall down. Now when I was in the choir, my friend and I did the exact same thing. We actually ended up with bruises all up and down our arms. So to see these girls fighting made me think that there still in a chance for children these days. They won't grow up corrupted and worried about their self image. Go them.

p.s. finals are over. :)

My glistening tear comes from the fact that my finals aren't over. I'm currently taking a short break from studying for my last final (physics) which gets done today. I'm terrified, but at the same time, I just want to march right up to the testing center and say, "BRING IT ON, SUCKAS!" Haha. I can see myself doing that.

Haha you and Dani were hilarious to watch! Basically made the Christmas performances semi-bearable. I remember that the bands had bets as to who would win.
