slrcosmos: (hello)
So it's been quite a while since I last posted. Still no luck on the job front. I've applied to more places but no nibbles. I'm a bit depressed about that.

This past weekend I went with the family to a wedding in St. Louis. We drove. I repeat, we drove. It was about 9 hours each way. That was loads of fun. The wedding was pretty but the reception sucked. The food at the reception was kinda gross and they took it away pretty quickly. The cake wasn't even that good. Then the DJ was some 80 year old Italian man who played "New York New York" twice. He played like 3 good dancing songs. Plus, the party ended at 11pm. That's really early.

We (including some aunts and uncles) went back to our hotel. There was a 40 year high school reunion going on. My relatives like to drink and the bars were closed so they stole some name tags and crashed the reunion. I guess the bar in there was a pay bar so it wasn't a big deal, but it was hilarious. 

I guess my uncle Mark was questioned by three guys. He went in there with my aunt Vicki cause she wanted to dance. Here's the conversation that happened:
Three Guys: what position did you play in football?
Uncle Mark: tackle
Three Guys: wrong! center! How'd you lose 200 lbs?
Uncle Mark: low carb diet
Three Guys: *turn to my aunt* You look the same

They couldn't do anything since everyone paid for their drinks. The funniest thing is that my uptight dad went in there to get a drink. I guess a woman asked him if he went to that high school and he said that his wife did.

Everyone except my dad have head colds. It's fun having a sore throat and not being able to breathe out of your nose. Hopefully I feel better since I have an exam next week.
