lake days

vacation days rock.
especially when you can escape to the lake.
lake days are a must for memorial day in texas.
the cool water and slight breeze make the heat seem a bit more bearable.
pictures to come later.
for now, enjoy the video.

cousin date

the cousins and i spent our friday night in dallas' arts district at the opera.
we tried our best to act fancy.
i just don't think it's in us.
some posh lady walked in on us taking bathroom pics.
not the typical thing to do at an opera.
the opera itself was quite whimsical.
even though we were peering down (literally head down) from the nosebleeds.

it's heating up in texas.
sunday kicked off pool club!
evidence is on my tomato-red upper body.

can't think of a title - it's 6:48am

have you seen this commercial around tv and hulu?
it's one minute of pure magic.
makes me want to pack up my bags and hop on a plane.
i'm slightly obsessed with it.
so obsessed i downloaded the song.

saturday = work

today i have to go into work 2 times and load data. so right now i am having a little quiet time with me, my coffee, a couple of candles, and a list of blogs i've sadly abandoned. oh yes, and wishing i could spend a whole day relaxing in the sun.

so here's to one weekend in the past filled with sunshine, the buggs, and pokey cacti.

oh and want to know something funny (this has nothing to do with sunshine and pokey cacti), suize quotes dr. oz once a day. literally, once a day. this morning she told me dr. oz eats bean-o once a day. cool, mom.

nature studies

hey! sunday was earth day! and if you know me, you know i'm a sucker for anything that shouts GREEN.

for the past, oh, 3 years i've spent earth day in a movie theater watching some nature studies movie where moofasa voice man is the narrator (that's for you, kylie).

this year i spent the day in the wild.

my roomies (the 'rents) and i took a trip to pk. last time i went out there it was completely burnt to a crisp. now you can barely tell there were monstrous fires. it was one big green fest.

the rooms and i ate food good, chatted with norman the foreman, hunted for rattlesnakes, and went on a hike. since i'm blessed with pale skin, i had to make a dash for shade every time i walked in a patch of sun.

real cool.

oh, and little mimster got pooped out on our hike. so as any good master would do, i slid her in my backpack.

((israel: day 6))

ever rode on a camel? i rode on one on top of a mountain in jerusalem!! who cares if it was about 3 minutes long, i felt like the king (er queen) of the world! i was sky high. but the poor little camel looked a bit abused. i felt sorry for him. apparently so did one other lady on the trip - we looked over at her and she was WEEPING! sheesh. i felt bad, but not that bad. and it growled at susie.

after the thoroughly entertaining camel ride, we walked the road Jesus took on palm Sunday to several beautiful cathedrals. they have some sort of significance. but i just can't remember what. all i know is that they were really really pretty.

then we continued our ap history course by viewing a super large model of the old city. the most interesting section was the temple. wow was it neato to have a visual picture of something that was had such significance.

to somber us up a bit we visited the holocaust museum. whew something about the holocaust just fascinates me. incredible stories came from such a horrible event. i couldn't help thinking how in the world did these people follow such and evil men in their pursuit of jews. hits me in the gut.

when we got back to the hotel we had the privilege of hearing caroline glick address the problems with iran in israel. she was f a s c i n a t i n g. let's just say we were all ready to rumble for israel after her powerful speech. need some insight, read her blog here. i'm seriously considering sending her a little email begging her to let me nanny her kids and live in israel. you think i kid? no.

did i ever mention how cool the israeli army is? every kid when they turn 18 has to join the military - girls included. they have pride i their country like i've never seen before. i was one step away of saying "take me!! i'll join your army!"

fun fact of the day: some people used to take the bones of several relatives and bury them in the same box. when i die, i do not want my bones to be put in a box with hunter's. disgusting.
