Sorry, guys. I haven't blogged in a while...like 10 days. Hey, that's a long time for me. Anyways, I've actually been trying to figure out iframes for my new site on freewebs [dot] com. I'm still trying to figure everything out cause it's all [fairly] new to me.

Finally, I got to go to my birthday baseball game: Yankees vs. Tigers @ Comerica Park, which is really only about a 15 minute drive from where I live. So my mom, dad, sister, Emily, Merritt, Katie and I all piled into our brand new Suburban and drove down there. I swear, it was funniest birthday party ever cause my friends and I have so many "inside jokes" that no one's gonna ever understand. Here are two of them:

"Oh my gosh! I won!!!" - Okay, this one's pretty weird, but pretty hilarious itf you know what it means. During the whole game yesterday because of "Fan Appreciation Weekend" @ Comerica, at the beginning of every inning, they'd give away prizes according to what section/seat/row you were in. Well, we were sitting in section
117 [try to find it here], which were very nice seats. Anyways, the thing comes on the screen that says the sections/seats/rows that won something which was section 117, seat 18, row...Katie [who was sitting next to me] and I whip around in our seats to look at the number; she had 18! Now here's the inside joke ["Oh my gosh! I won!!!"] part: after Katie and I are, like, totally phreaking out and squealing, my sister says, "Uh, wrong row, guys." It was row 18 and we were in row 27. We're such dorks ^_^

"...root, root, root for the Yankers..." - This one was good. Okay, in the seventh inning stretch when everyone's supposed to stand up and stretch [hence the name: seventh inning stretch], they started to play "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," while flashing the words up on the scoreboard. Since it was a Tiger's homegame, the substituted "the hometeam" for "the Tigers." Since I'm a rabid Yankee fan, I began to say Yankees instead of Tigers, but this guy behind us said "Cubbies," screwing me up. Before I could finish "Yankees", I glanced up at the scoreboard, saw "Tigers" and "Yankers" was born. Oops.


Ha. Now you know at least two great inside jokes from yesterday. Anyways...tomorrow is the first day of Spirit Week at my hs, leading up to homecoming on Saturday. The whole theme of homecoming is "A Night At The Oscars," and for the sophomores, our float theme for the parade is "Cool Runnings." Ya know. The movie. Doy. Tomorrow, we're doing "Sleepless In Seattle" by dressing in our pj's [oh joy...], Tuesday is "Multiplicity" when you can be twins/triplets with 1/2 other person/peopl in your homeroom, Wednesday is "Dancing Through the Decades" where each class gets a different time era [sophs get the Austin Powers era [[woot woot]]], then the rest of week sucks. Pep rally on Friday, game on Saturday. Borrrring.
