This is apparently what the ol Mac thinks I look like with fish eyes. I don't know if I agree with their interpretation. I've spent far too long this morning laughing-so-hard-I-bawl at the pics I've been taking of myself and just how ug I can be. Kind of a sad sort of morning even amidst all the laughter, when ya think about it.
It's Sunday. I get most homesick on Sundays because I was raised by a Goddess of a mother who prepared phenomenal meals and I got to play with all the tiny little punks and send them home after they got too annoying. ah....such a good day Sundays at the Ballard home are. I miss them.
I GOT A TEACHING JOB!!! I now teach two yoga classes at the field house on campus. Neat, yeah?
My friend Tyler Andrews, his sister emi and her lover Mckay started a band called Children of the North and we went to their gig Friday night and it was amazing. I recommend a listen to their stuff http://childrenofthenorth.bandcamp.com/track/im-a-pilgrim-im-a-stranger
Another night, we did this:
The Night We Contributed to the World of Science and Discovery
It was a night like any other when we decided to take this
And see how many balloons it would take to make this happen
(see Judy's tiny little specs in there?)
It began with a simple question, hypothesis, experiment.....I can't really remember the rest of the process, but as the scientific method teaches us, there is an order to the answering of life's biggest mysteries through scientific means.
Different tactics and avenues were explored to find success. I feel like Thomas Edison would have not only appreciated our task but our persistance in trying many different things.
Finally, they gently lifted off her face like sweet little angels going back to their heavenly home
Creepy bystander. They're necessary to keep the study unbiased
The proud researchers and their final product. Publishers will be peer reviewing and putting the study up for debate soon.
There was a contest as to how many balloons it would take. Did I maybe create this post just to brag that I guessed the exact amount and stole some jam out of the party host's house as a my major award? Psh.....no.
But yes, it did take exactly 23 balloons. I guessed 23. Hogwarts doesn't know what they missed.
