Back To Salisbury! Oh wait...& Ocean Pines

It is that time of the year where I would normally wait until last minute to cram all of my crap into black trash bags and then go to school. Fortunately and unfortunately, that is not the case this year. I have moved on into the pseudo real world and start fall classes for grad school at George Mason tomorrow.

It has just hit me tonight that I will not be going back to my Jenn Booze and that she and everyone else will. Krista lives in Salisbury now. Sarah, Casey, and Colleen have moved to Silver Spring and well, that leaves only a few lucky people who will be blessed to spend time with me. :-) But seriously, it has become depressing to think I will not be returning to the Bury and that real life awaits me. I know, however, that God has awesome plans and He will keep me thoroughly busy between work, school, and church.

This past week I was at Ocean Pines with my parents and Anthony playing on the new boat, crabbing, and just hanging out. It was wonderful. It was the last hoorah before both he and I start school. My Dad liked to point that out, but also add how he and my mom will continue in their hoorah-ing as she is retired and he gets paid an obscene amount of money to work a quarter of the year. Oh to be old.

Ironically enough, our trip to the beach was not spent at the beach at all. In fact, sand never touched my feet. Crabbing was my obsession. The first day Anthony and I conquered and caught nine crabs from a local pier.

The next day we went crabbing on our boat. It was AWESOME. We caught six, I believe. You see, we were catching crabs with a purpose. Anthony and I planned to make crab imperial for dinner on Friday. We were on a mission. We had caught 15 crabs up til that day, but we wanted more. The next day we went again from the boat and caught five crabs. 21 crabs later, we were satisfied and we had steamed and picked those suckers clean!

Who else loves crabbing??!? I'm a crab maniac and suggest it. :-)

Hershey Park

Hello friends,

This past Monday I went with Anthony's family to Hershey Park for the day. It has been a long time since I have been there! They have definitely upgraded. One of my fav things to do at any amusement park is people watch. I mean there are all kinds of strange people there.

My favorite rollercoaster I would say was the Storm Runner. It was one of those coasters that starts you off going 60 mph or whatever. It scares the crap out of you, but you are always ready to get back in line again. We went on it twice.

It always amazes me how many small children and old people go on rollercoasters.

I also love to see the pictures of everyone's faces at the end of a roller coaster. Kind of like this one:

We didn't do any water rides, however, Anthony did enjoy this:

I couldn't find any more funny roller coaster faces. If you are bored, google some and post them in the comments suckas!

Monk: Sharona or Natalie?

The Monk I refer to friends is the USA original television show. It stars Tony Shaloub playing an OCD private detective and it is very entertaining, however, why is it that USA feels the need to play it ALLLLL the time? I feel like whenever I am bored and have nothing else to do I know Monk will be on.

Anyways, I digress. This post is not about the frequency of Monk episodes played, but about his two assistants: Sharona and Natalie. Which one did you like better?

Contestant # 1: Sharona Fleming

Sharona was Monk's first assistant. She grew up in New Jersey, hence the heavy accent, and later became a nurse. After being Monk's nurse, she became his full-time assistant. She has a son and a very spicy attitude. Eventually, she ends up leaving Mr. Monk after realizing he is driving her slowly insane and affecting her love life.

Contestant #2: Natalie Teeger

Natalie comes to Mr. Monk as a client needing him to solve a case. Someone has broken into her home looking for something and she is scared for her and her daughter's life. After Mr. Monk solves her case she decides to become his new assistant.

So..who do you like better?

Hi all-

This weekend kept me very busy. Friday was Tia's wedding. She is now Tia Ryan. It ran pretty smoothly and was tons of fun. I got to walk into the reception with none other than JT's "Lovestoned" playing. I could not have been happier. The rest of the night I was a dancing machine and I now have pulled my calf muscle. An unfortunate result of a very fortunate evening. Alas, Tia is now in Jamaica doing the nasty and I am sitting in my room alone with a pulled muscle drinking coffee and watching DC United lose. Such is life...

On Saturday night Hannah Guerra held a benefit concert called h20 to raise money for clean water in Africa. The concert featured 5 bands, one of whom was from Rhode Island! Anthony and I were "security" to make sure no hooligans caused any trouble. None did.

Sunday afternoon a bunch of us ventured to Baltimore to watch the O's get stomped by the Texas Rangers. Nonetheless, it was fun and Krista's Mom was entertaining with her Bud Lights. Hehe. Happy Birthday Randi!

Canadian Beheading on a Greyhound Bus

Have you guys heard this horrible story of a passenger on a Greyhound bus in Canada stabbing and decapitating a fellow passenger??? EW! Here is the story.

I read another report today that disclosed more information. This is very disturbing. Apparently, the attacker started cutting off pieces of the victim and eating them.

As if riding a Greyhound bus in Canada isn't sketchy enough..
