Deer & Flat Tires

Saturday was great! In the morning I got up early and went to a car auction. All the cars went for way to much, but that was OK because I need to save money for college anyways. My current car works alright, but has a big dent in it. (thanks to me falling asleep)
Later on I ate at a new BBQ place called EZ-BBQ. OK so the name is lame & the place is tiny (we were the only customers) but they have good BBQ. (although my brother Josh disagrees)
Next we watched a new movie called Monster House. OK get this: Picture someone making a movie about a haunted house. Pretty normal right? Now make it an animated cartoon. I figured it would be really stupid, but it was actually great. (although it definately wasn't scary)
Monday after work I practiced with a local worship group called Psalm Sixty Six. Right after I left there my tire went flat. I pulled over & realized I had a 1" long slit in it. The way I figure either I ran over something right after leaving ps66 or someone slit it. Oh well, such is life.
First I checked my spare. It was flat. Then I pull out my handy mini air compressor & try to air it up. No luck. My spare tire seal was broke. Next I pull out....... Fix-a-Flat. OK I'm smiling now. No more problems. Fill it up and get on with life. After shaking for 30 seconds I attach it and push the button. After a couple seconds........BOOM! The top of the Fix-a-Flat blows up. Just great! Here I am with a spare tire, an air compressor, Fix-A-Flat (going all over the place) and my tire still flat as a pancake. Some days are meant to be tough. Finally I use the small air compressor to get enought air in the tire to get it to Walmart. The tire part is closed. Josh finally gets to Walmart and picks me up.
Then on the way back a deer runs in front of the car & we have to brake hard to miss it.

Morals of the story:
1. make sure your spare tire isn't flat
2. don't count on Fix-A-Flat
3. hmm......do I really have to have a third moral?

Pirates & Green Thumbs

This weekend was good. On Thursday I went & watched Pirates of the Caribbean 2. It was a pretty good movie with plenty of interesting monsters, fights, & PIRATES (duh) . What I didn't like was the ending. The end of every movie should have something beginning, something ending, and maybe something continuing. This movie was like building up suspense, then not finishing what you started. (just my opinion, it seems some people disagree.)
Now, on to the green thumb. Saturday Mom realizing she had lots of extra cucumbers decided to make pickles. Me being the nearest person, she had me cut them up into spears. It was fairly easy work, but a couple minutes after I finished, My thumb & fingers started getting hard. Then green. Then crackly. It was very disturbing. One of my brothers even mentioned that I might be turning into Hulk, but I assured him that while I might sometimes have the urge to beat him up, only my thumb & fingers were turning green. (then I proceeded to beat him up) just kidding!

Act Test!!!





Yesterday (Thursday) I took the ACT test. I've been kind of worried about it, because of the fact that since I graduated last year I haven't done any Algebra since. Saturday I spent like 4 1/2 hours trying to refresh my memory. (Yawn..) So anyways after all was said and done I got a 26! Thank You Jesus! At this point it looks like I'll definately be going to Cleveland State College this Fall. All to do now is set up the class schedules.
This week has been busy (made sort of obvious by the fact that I haven't blogged till now)
Saturday we had a good service at Psalm Sixty Six. Sunday we had a great service at church. After church Sunday we went to eat at Fazoli's (did I spell that right?)
Overall, this was a very good week. (except for the 4 1/2 hours of Algebra)

Feel like 19

I recently got an interesting letter in the mail. on the front it said:
TRY OUR NEW GREEN ENERGY DRINK, IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE 19
Now there's only one thing about that: I'm 18. Now why on earth would I want to drink an energy drink that would make me feel one year older? Oh well, the things people will try to sell you these days.
Last night we went skating. I haven't been in forever, so it was a lot of fun, even if there was only a few people there. Also they let me play like my entire Kutless, Hearts of the Innocent cd, so that was cool. Well, duty calls!

4th of July

This 4th was great. First I slept in until 11:00. That in itself makes a day amazing. Next I ate a BLT. That was GOOD!!! Next I got things done I really needed to do. (cleaning room, vacuuming, polishing shoes, that type of thing) not so fun. Next I lay around the house doing absolutely nothing for a couple hours (what fun!) Then Dad grilled ribs & chicken on the BBQ (oh yeah!) Next I was lazy for an hour or so, then went to church & had a great service. After that 15-20 of the young people went to watch fireworks at Walmart. The fireworks were good, but I must say the company was better! Next I went to bed. Yawn!!
