I went shooting again. This time with a hand gun. It was huge! I guess I did pretty well on my second* target: I hit the paper on all 5 shots, and two were in the red. That's right folks--don't mess with me!** But I must admit, it's not as bad as I thought it would be. My arms are a little sore still, but that's because it was a big gun. I'm told that with something smaller it shouldn't be as bad.

And for those of you who are interested, I believe a group is going shooting (probably skeet) on 11 October, so just let me know, and I'll get you the information.

*The first paper was shared with a pro, so I'm not sure where I hit it...
**If I have a gun in my hand...but chances are I wont, so you are safe. Unless you are creepy, in which case you should always assume I am armed (even though I'm not).

PS-You can't really see it, but the gun is right below the target...you know, the black thing on the black tray...ya, I can understand why you didn't even notice it at first...If I was smart, I would have put them on the white paper so they'd stand out...but I didnt...

I Do?

-My good friend Liz posted an interesting blog today...And it's something I actually think about often. "Would You Marry You?" Me? Probably not, actually. For one thing, I've long been grateful that I am a girl, so that I don't have to deal with being married to a girl. Additionally, I don't think I'm such a great catch. I know people love me, and I know I'm fun or whatever, but that's all a facade. I've spent my life pretending to be a great person. I really am very good at it.

And I think that's exactly why I wouldn't want to marry myself: Because I know my personality wouldn't really get along with itself. For example: I really only do what's expected of me. And I hate having to tell people what they need to do. So, I'd get really annoyed with myself for something I'm neglecting to do, but because I don't want to be a nag, instead of telling myself to do it, I'd just let the frustration brew up inside myself.

Also, I'm very good at pushing people away; I am not good at talking about important issues; I am more of a mirror than a painting; I never cook anymore; I don't really enjoy cleaning; I am against "working out"; I have no follow through; there is no creativity in me; I'd rather put money in a savings account than spend it (you may think this is a good thing, and sometimes it is, but sometimes you just want to buy something without feeling guilty); I'm incredibly naive/inexperienced/ignorant; I'm not good at sitting still--and that's just to list a few.

Would I marry me? No, I wouldn't. But I'm still hoping that some day someone else will! And the things that I can change, I'm trying. I've even gone to the gym recently!<--just to show how much effort and sacrifice I'm putting in to it!

you're my number 1

My sister and I wanted to watch a movie last night, so we turned on the TV and this is what we saw:

We were trying so hard to figure out what was going on, but we couldn't rewind it...so I ran to the computer to see if it was there--AND IT WAS!!!

100 mostly uninteresting things about me

I loved reading the Magic 100th blogs, so I thought I'd try one too. In preparing to write mine, I went back to check some others: Rachel, Liz, Amanda, Laura, Lizl...I think that's all of them... So, anyway, here are 100 very random, and mostly uninteresting tidbits about me:

  1. I have a desk job
  2. And by "desk" I mean I sit at one all day
  3. But I don't really have a lot to do
  4. So I mostly just pretend to be busy.
  5. I totally blog stalk people
  6. And it's often people I don't know.
  7. I LOVE origami
  8. I'm not really good at it, but I do it anyway.
  9. The first thing I learned how to make was a ball
  10. My elementary school friend taught me
  11. At church.
  12. Then in 7th grade I learned how to make a samurai
  13. My English teacher taught the class when we were reading a book about a samurai
  14. ...I don't remember which one...
  15. Right now I'm working on a bouquet of flowers
  16. For my desk at work.
  17. It started while I was at school last week
  18. One of my teachers had an origami bouquet on her desk
  19. So I was trying to figure out how to make the flowers
  20. While she was lecturing.
  21. I have the attention span of a toddler.
  22. Ooh--What's that? ...
  23. ...Where was I?...
  24. Oh ya--Attention spans
  25. My memory is bad, too.
  26. I honestly think there's something wrong with me
  27. Sometimes I can't remember words
  28. On Sunday, I seriously spent 3 minutes trying to think of "Millennium"
  29. Last week I couldn't say "wet weather"
  30. I still have to think really hard to say it.
  31. And my spelling is worse.
  32. I love spell check.
  33. I can't wait till it moves past correcting the spelling, to knowing the intended word
  34. Like distinguishing between there/their/they're.
  35. My family has a board where we mark our height on our birthdays
  36. At the top it says "See how we've groan"
  37. I still don't know if that was intentional.
  38. I'm the shortest in my family
  39. They always called me the runt
  40. I haven't made a new line since I was 14.
  41. The highest mark on the board is my uncle Jon.
  42. I am really lazy
  43. If I could, I'd just sit around all day.
  44. I love the beach.
  45. It's probably because no one expects you to do anything there
  46. Thereby allowing me to be lazy.
  47. I ask a lot of questions
  48. "Are you still reading this?"
  49. "Why?"
  50. I ask questions so I don't have to think.
  51. See, I told you I'm lazy.
  52. I love when I have a crush on someone
  53. It makes life more exciting and interesting
  54. But I don't really know what to do about it
  55. So I just do nothing--It's easier
  56. I'd probably forget about it soon anyway.
  57. I'm not very good at sitting around
  58. I'm sure you already know that
  59. It's why you never see me.
  60. It's a recent development
  61. But I don't know where it came from
  62. Because lazy people usually love doing nothing.
  63. There are very few people I sit down with.
  64. I usually only watch 1 or 2 TV shows a week
  65. (Not counting the GSN I watch with my grandma).
  66. I almost never watch TV with other people
  67. It goes back to my lack of ability to sit around
  68. There is only 1 person I've watched aimless TV with this month
  69. And I thought I was going to defenestrate myself.
  70. (That's one of my favorite words
  71. But I've never used it about myself
  72. And I'm not sure that's correct usage.)
  73. But I had no excuse to leave
  74. Except: "I hate TV and right now I hate you."
  75. And I don't really like to tell people I hate them
  76. So I stayed
  77. And took a nap.
  78. Nap time is the highlight of my day
  79. I wish I could take a nap everyday.
  80. Why'd they take that out of school?
  81. It makes me sad when I think about all the things kids are missing.
  82. What "expert" decided it was a good idea to get rid of recess?
  83. Why don't more parents teach their children respect/consideration?
  84. I don't have a bucket list
  85. If I did it would say: Do everything
  86. It would probably be underlined three times.
  87. I have lots of irrational fears
  88. Or maybe it's better classified as paranoia
  89. I don't usually tell people about it because I don't want them to be like me.
  90. When people ask, I say I'm afraid of failure
  91. (Which I really am!).
  92. My biggest regret is my lack of experience
  93. I missed out on too much in my life
  94. Which is why I'm so willing to do just about anything now
  95. Even hold a gun.
  96. I'm told this would be the perfect one for me.
  97. I don't want a gun in my house.
  98. Unless it's a marshmallow shooter
  99. I have 2 Marshmallow Shooters in my trunk
  100. Just in case I feel the sudden need to have a "gun" fight.

Dear Person,

I don't know who you are. But I do know what you did. And I have to tell you: it sucks.
(The girl who stepped in your gum. You know, the gum you spit out in the parking lot. Right between 2 parking spots. Pretty much exactly where someone would have to step when getting out of their car. My shoes and my car thank you.)

Guess Where I Was!

Okay, this one might be a little more difficult, but It's one of my favorite places, so you might know it. And I promise that it's not that far away.

Emailed Panda

He may not look like much, but I'm pretty proud of my Panda!

It was a quiet day at work, so I made a panda out of printer paper...Obviously it should be done using origami paper that is black on one side, and white on the other, but oddly enough I don't keep that at my desk, so I just grabbed my trusty Sharpie!

In other news: I am quite proud of myself because I posted this via e-mail, so I hope it turns out.
