Graduation day

Budde’s graduation2

Originally uploaded by Dani H.

So, the day after going to Cinci to meet Jen Lancaster, we drove to Akron for my brother-in-law’s law school graduation.

We had dinner with Kim & Charles and his family at, um, I can’t remember the name of the place. But it’s the kind of place where they cook the food right there in front of you. It was pretty good, and I had a chocolate martini … actually I think I may have had two now that I think about it.

Graduation was on Sunday, and it was pretty cool to go to a law school graduation. After the ceremony we went to lunch at … again I can’t remember where we went. I’m pretty sure at least one more chocolate martini was had. Maybe that’s why I can’t remember the names of the restaurants!

Anyway, it was a good weekend. 🙂

Shot through the heart

August 18, 2006

A bulleted list just for you:

  • Dave is officially Dr. Dave, as he graduated on Aug. 5.
  • I got drunk at his graduation party and “went to bed” early.
  • Had lunch at Spot’s in BG and hung out with Jeff last Friday, who was in town from San Jose. Next time you see/talk to him, tell him “Power down, bitch!”
  • Our newest copy editor quit, so we’re looking again. Boo.
  • We’ve made a decision of sorts that I’m pretty happy about, but would most likely disappoint many other people, so guess what? Not telling.
  • Both of us turned a year older last month. I guess I’m weird since most people freak out at the big 2-9, but really, it’s just another year like any other. Most days I feel way older than I am, so what’s the big deal?
  • Joy’s wedding shower was last weekend, and it was fun!
  • We leave for Las Vegas in a week for Joy & Rodney’s wedding, and I can’t wait! I tried to get her to get married by Elvis, but she said no.
  • Still looking at houses, keeping an eye on the ones that interest me, hoping to be able to get serious about buying relatively soon.
  • Have a few pictures from Amy & Joe’s wedding, and Dave’s graduation, that I may get around to putting up sometime in the next year.
  • Going to IKEA with Joy tomorrow, and I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve heard of the wonders of IKEA, but until recently there wasn’t one close enough to us.
  • I used the last of the coffee this morning, so Findlay had better hope Dave brings some home with him tonight, or it ain’t gonna be pretty.

Soda addict

February 20, 2004

I think I have a version of a cold. No stuffiness to speak of, but a terribly dry throat. Actually, my nose is pretty dry (and yes, I know how odd that sounds). Anyway, no matter how much water I drink I still feel parched. Poor Dani!

Maybe it’s because I haven’t had a soda in two days. I went to the dentist Wednesday, and I’ve been a bad, bad girl. I need lots o’ fillings because I drink way too much soda. But Dr. Mitchell says he can save me (no, really, that’s what he said) so I guess it’ll be OK. Stupid girl.

A word to the wise: If you plan on being productive, don’t get out the Tetris. Especially if you have a gamecube, because there are some crazy addictive games on there. I did get most of the dishes done, but I didn’t even touch the bathroom or any laundry. I suppose there’s always Saturday.

So, I realized today that in the next few months I’m going to need to start planning Dave’s graduation party – or should I say par-tay, because it’s gonna be huge! By that time we should be in a house (renting) so there will be room for more than five people to be there at the same time. If only BGSU’s colors weren’t orange & brown…maybe the history department has its own colors? Probably not.

I really want to redo my Web site, but I haven’t been in a particularly creative or witty mood lately. Maybe inspiration will strike this weekend and I won’t have to clean the bathroom. We’ll see.

*BURN UPDATE* I think it tells Fat Mojo to be bad.
