The only two Super Bowl commercials I liked:

CareerBuilder.com and Cash4Gold. The rest were underwhelming.

Also, fuck the Steelers.

The FOX announcers for last's night's game were about the worst I've ever heard. They were too busy worshipping Saint Tebow to even pay attention to what down they were on for much of the game. They really made the game painful to watch. Honestly, what the fucking hell does living in a leper colony have to do with the game? Really?

Oklahoma screwed themselves out of a championship last night, several times. The two missed touchdowns and that retarded offensive line penalty cost them the game. And maybe if the receivers could have caught a damn ball (instead of just handing it over to the other team, literally) once in awhile even those things wouldn't have mattered. Florida wasn't a better team; they just made fewer mistakes.

The OU game against Chattanooga isn't televised here, so I just went to espn.com to check the score. I knew it would be a blowout, but damn...50-0 and it's not even halftime yet?! Unless they're going for a record I think it's time to bring in the backups.

Aww, Brett Favre retired. :(

I have a synoptic exam in two days that is worth 50% of my grade, so this is all you get today.

Both the Cowboys and Colts lost today. If I had any doubts before, I now believe there is a God. It'll be sad when the Patriots demolish the Chargers next week after all the effort they put in today, but it was worth it just to see Indianapolis lose. I'm also starting to believe that Philip Rivers might be a good quarterback despite how many times he screwed me over on my fantasy football team this season. As far as the Cowboys go, everyone will probably jump on the bandwagon and blame Tony Romo for the loss because he was partying in Mexico with Jessica Simpson before the game, but I don't think it was his fault. If the receivers would have caught all the good passes they dropped and if the O line would have done their job better, the Cowboys probably would have won. You can't blame the quarterback for everything.

Anyway, that's pretty much all I did today. I watched football and played Final Fantasy X (which I had NEVER played before up until last week, and now I can't seem to tear myself away from it). On Friday I'm flying to New Orleans for the AMS conference! I'm a little nervous about walking around in the city since I'm the ONLY person I know staying at my hotel and thus will have to do at least some walking by myself, BUT I have a lot of friends going that I haven't seen in awhile. I'm expecting it to be very awesome on the whole.

What the hell? The Iowa-Iowa State game is being televised here on the Outdoor Life Network, and the Oklahoma game isn't on at all? Weird.

EDIT: HOLY SHIT! ISU WON!! I don't know whether to be thrilled with how the Cyclones played or wonder what the hell is wrong with the Hawkeyes. :p
miraje: (boo)
I'm dreading seeing the final score of the Iowa-Iowa State game later today. It's going to be ugly. I think ISU is probably the worst team in the Big 12 right now. :(

I'm switching out my keyboard today for Jeremy's old one. While losing the top row of number keys is bad enough (I've been copying and pasting exclamation points and parentheses for months now), just today I realized that my B key is starting to fail. I went to www.faceook.com twice this morning. ANNOYING.

Jeremy and I decided to get out of the house this afternoon since the weather was gorgeous, so we drove in to Norman and played a round of disc golf. I have a habit of getting disgruntled because I can't aim for shit and usually end up about 15 or 20 shots behind Jeremy, but it's good exercise. After our game we stopped at Braum's for dinner and waited FOREVER to get mediocre food. 15 minutes might not seem like a long time to wait for food, but at a fast food place it seems like an hour. I suppose the wait was worth getting my chocolate almond malt, though.

It boggles my mind that there are only three weeks left of this semester. At the same time, though, I am extremely ready for it to be over because of my Radiation class. Two homework assignments a week really blows, and that's even a reduction in the work load! Back at the start of this semester we had three a week.

Broomball and I get along great. The ice and I...not so much. I had super sticky shoes on, but a couple times I just got going too fast and lost my balance. There was one time in particular that I was practically sprinting for the ball (I'm aggressive in broomball and have little regard for what I run into), and I slipped on the slick spot at the edge of the arena. I was going so fast that I sailed face first into the wall and hit really fucking hard. Thank GOD I was wearing a face mask or else the brunt of it would have encountered my nose with quite a lot of force. I smacked my knee pretty hard too when I hit the wall, so I ended up limping off the ice for a substitution. It's all good, though. Bruises heal, and I was a hero for about two minutes. And I got the fucking ball.

At this moment, out of over a thousand undergrads, graduate students, and professors, I am the best weather forecaster in this national collegiate contest. I RULE!!! Now I have a shot at winning it this year if I don't totally fuck up in the next six months. I about fell out of my chair when I saw my name at the top of that list. And my boyfriend just won the last period, too! The Iowa State University team as a whole is ranked first in the nation as well since we have a lot of people ranked really high. Considering that there's a record number of people participating in the contest this year, I'd venture to say that we're doing pretty damn good.

GO ISU!!! GO ME! GO JEREMY! Woo hooo!

It's even online.

There you have it, one of the worst pictures of myself I have ever seen. Why the hell did we have to wear those ugly fucking caps anyway?

I just split a hole in my favorite pair of jeans while playing ultimate frisbee tonight. FUCK. Now I have to spend $50 on a new favorite pair of jeans.

I'm going to go pay the rent that was due yesterday.

We won our broomball game tonight, but I slipped on the ice and landed on my knee not once, but twice during the game. There is a bruised welt around the size of an egg sitting on my left knee, and it hurts like a bitch. It should be all kinds of pretty colors by this time tomorrow. I wish I had a digital camera so that I could gross you all out. ;)

Also, in case you're interested...

I am playing Literati with the slowest and quite possibly dumbest person on the planet, although I did show my redneck pride and use all my letters on the very first turn to spell out M-U-L-L-E-T-S.

Oh God, crawn is not a word, buddy.

I cannot believe we are going to lose to the University of Kansas. This is embarrassing. KU is notorious for sucking at football, so what does this say about Iowa State? It says that we suck really REALLY badly if our record this year doesn't tell you that itself. Holy fucking God. Kansas just intercepted the football and scored another touchdown. I can't listen to this shit anymore.

I drove by the bars in Campustown at 5 pm, and there was already a huge line outside the door. People are ALREADY GETTING DRUNK. This is going to be a long ass weekend, especially if ISU loses. Rather than risking my life and limb by going somewhere...like a football game, I'm going to stay in the safety of my own apartment and watch it all on tv. I don't have tickets anyway. For tonight, I'm going to snuggle up on the couch with my kettle cooked tomato and basil chips and watch "The Truth About Cats and Dogs" that I discovered was only $5 at Target from Woolf's journal.

I just heard someone slam on their breaks and squeal their tires out on Lincoln Way, probably trying to avoid hitting someone. See what I mean? It's madness out there. I'm staying here, thanks.

Kayla, I got your pictures!!! That kitty is so damn cute, and I know what you mean now about Galen tearing his truck apart. Damn.

I may have to send ya some pics when I get this next roll developed.

The big Iowa vs. Iowa State game is tomorrow. Wish the home team luck, and pray no one dies from their drunken stupidity!

The final results for National Collegiate Weather Forecasting Contest are in. I ended finishing in second place out of 269 Freshmen and Sophomores across the country. I finished in 20th place out of 1033 Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, Grad Students, and Professors across the country. I won't get a big trophy, but I still did damn good. My family's going to be happy. :)

Broomball kicks ass! I played with Katie's team, the Crotch Rockets. We won 2-1. I actually was responsible for one of the two trips to the penalty box, because I apparently "tripped" someone. I slipped on the ice and slid into him. That's not exactly something you can control, lol!

I'm going to be so sore tomorrow. If any of you Ames folk see a young blonde chick walking around like she's 80, that's probably me.

You guys remember the National Collegiate Forecasting Contest that I'm in? It's in the home stretch now. There's one period of forecasting left, and it's Boston, Massachusetts. I'm just a little over a point away from first place, so I have a really good chance of beating my whole division! These are 260 freshman and sophomore meteorology students around the country, and I could get FIRST! I really can't believe I did so well.

If I don't beat this weather stud from the University of Oklahoma, there's no way I'm going to be disappointed. It's just a fun competition. There's no point in being a bad sport. I've even given half a thought to emailing the guy and congratulating him if he does win. *shrug*
