Closed for Flu

Kojies didn't win Sing Song. Just an update for those of you sitting on the edge of your seats waiting for the results. Now on to important things...

My whole office has the flu. Not kidding. We have 7 employees and 7 of us have Doctor diagnosed, prescription medicine, 5 day excuse from work and classes influenza. Yesterday we put a sign up on our door that said something like, "We apologize for the inconvenience, but our entire staff is out ill." It reminded me of that scene in My Cousin Vinny where Joe Pesci goes to buy a new suit but the only suit store is closed for flu. He makes a comment in court saying "Thats right, the whole store has the flu." It sounds so ridiculous when said in a movie, but it is actually happening to me. I'm just hoping that I will be better by Monday so I can go to my first graduate school interview at TCU! I hate being sick. It is always so inconvenient.

Sing Song....AHHHHH

I'm already discovering how bad I am at this! The problem is that when interesting stuff happens, I am usually too busy to think about writing, and when my day is boring, I have time galore.

Sing Song week is about to kill me. Nichole and I are in charge of the costumes for our Kojie act and it has been stressful to no end. Just imagine putting probably 50 or more hours into a project, showing it to the people who are going to be wearing it, and then not having anyone tell you they like it at all until the day before the show starts. Now everything is good because everyone likes them and is telling us, but for about two weeks we were so worried that everyone hated them.

Then add to all of that white feather boas (we're chickens). I ordered white feather boas and red turkey flat feathers for our costumes from a place in California. They promised me that the boas would be in by Tuesday at the latest. Dress rehearsal is Wednesday. Called them Tuesday, they said they should be there by Wednesday morning. Called them Wednesday and, no lie, they tell me that they haven't even been shipped yet! So I had to get someone to cover my shift at work, call about 30 different party stores in DFW, and spend my day driving to Rockwall and Fort Worth to pick up feather boas. It was totally God helping us out though, because the white boas were perfect and I had a flash of inspiration to put puffs of red feather boas on top of our heads like the head feathers of a chicken and it TOTALLY completes the costume. The red is so much better than what we would have gotten from them. I have been in a good mood for 2 days straight because of the red feathers and nothing could get me out of it, not even 110 Kojies telling me all of the things they are missing from their costumes!!

On an unrelated note...I submitted my TCU application for the MBA program yesterday! My admissions interview is Feb. 28. Pray for me!

P.S. Its the Chinese year of the Rooster. Kojies are totally going to win Sing Song this year!

Second this allowed?

Two posts in one day....unheard of! I'm sure that is some kind of blogging faux pas, but hey, what are you going to do?

Can anyone tell me how to put my picture in my profile? I figure if I'm going to do this blogging thing, I might as well go all the way. I tried the link that said "Find out how to get free picture hosting" and did the whole hello thing, but I can't figure out what to put in that box for the picture URL. Help anyone?

I've jumped on the bandwagon

Okay, I've had a blog ID thing for a few weeks now, mainly so I could post on Lindsey's Ice Cream Club blog, but I haven't written anything yet. I've just been obnoxiously adding comments to other people's blogs. But I have decided that I should join the masses and actually write some stuff so that people can look at it if they want to.

I feel like a lemming (hence the name of my blog...) Does anyone remember that game? It was so cool! All of the little green lemmings would just follow each other and walk in a straight line until something got in their way or they fell off a cliff or into a sea of lava or something. You never saw a lemming say, "Wait a minute...everyone keeps going, but no one is coming back....something isn't right here..." All of that to say that I am jumping in line to write a blog even though I might be right by the edge of a cliff. That makes no sense, but humor me.

This morning I was supposed to place a call to Vienna to talk to my contact there about my spring break mission trip thing, but the professor that was supposed to help me didn't show up. So I woke up at 7:00am for nothing and now I am just killing time until I work at noon. How great is it that it is unusual for me to have to be awake at 10:00am? I will never have this again in my life. Until tomorrow...
