the weekend was a lot of fun. we took a hike on which we had completely no idea how to get to the punchbowls from the trail we took and ending up on the top of a very steep very tall hill (very tall like.... 400 feet of elevation tall. in flat areas it would be a mountain) which was fun. played DOTA with about 10 different people from my school. argued with about 3 other people whether ants could be accuratly simulated on modern technology and if this meant they were just robots. in general it was a good weekend.

I have a latin paper to write sometime in the next 14 days.

presidential candidate senator brownback is coming on friday to speak at our presidents day dinner. for a bit of information (it was the first thing that came up on google, looks like a good candidate though. would be nice if he had a chance of winning (which right now he doesnt.) we all got a memo in our boxes saying that due to his security we will not be permitted to come or go from the dinner. anybody who wishes to attend must arrive on time and remain seated the entire time. thats a bit much.

well, not much else to say and people are waiting for this computer. more in a week or so.

for many reasons i say w00t! (definition)

First becuase lucas is coming to visit for a three day weekend. we plan on hiking and playing video games and my mother has sent me a box of candy that we will consume. this in all should be amazingly fun.

second because said weekend is a three day weekend. monday is off for presidents day and it sounds like the school has managed to get the presence of one of the presidential candidates for the upcoming election to come visit (and that should be interesting). im not sure which candidate, actualy i havent kept up on who the candidates are yet so i simply didnt recognize the name when it was said. more on that in some future post.

third, my parents have helped me sign up for taglit birthright israel, a foundation that sends people between the ages of 18 and 26 to israel. that would be amazingly cool. first because i have never made it outside the united states, second because its israel and third because its free (or almost free).

Oh, and another reason to say W00t! Nicole and i have been officialy going out for two years as of yesterday and I can't possibly take enough opportunities to say that she is the most wonderfull person. thanks colie :) hope its embarassing being on my blog :-p

hope you all have your own reasons to say W00t! cya round.
