Grogus

| 1 Comment

In a similar vein as my previous post, I heard Grogus on NPR yesterday. Grogus, as it’s website says, “combines various musical elements, including, but definitely not limited to, Latin jazz, salsa, Afro-Caribbean jazz, and even reggae.” Anyway, great happy summer music.

This is what I mean by “collect interesting music.” Note to self–put these people on my wish list.

Today, I signed up for another round of spinning at a ridiculous hour! This time, it will be for a full hour, starting at 6:05am. I hope that this will get me back in gear from giant land sloth mode. Plus, my mom and I are supposed to ride in the Georgia BikeFest in Newnan at the end of September–so it would probably be nice to be able to sit on a bike for a while and also not die if we do more than 10 miles. Mama, you better get back on your bike.

On Wednesday, I can go rent a locker. When I’m going to Ramsey, this helps SO much because I have a place to put all my stuff without having to worry about parking. And since I’m probably going to be there more during the day rather than when there is free parking, this is a big deal. Woohoo!

Town is filling up with more and more people since the semester starts this week. Traffic around campus is getting worse. There are more people on bikes (without helmets, of course). But, I like it. It is also a little sad, because this is my last “new year” here ever! Even if I do go back to school (when I am RETIRED), it probably won’t be at UGA. I don’t think I’ll miss it that much in the end though.

On my way back from a marathon WLSA officers’ meeting today, I tuned in to the local public radio station and discovered a new fab thing! Apparently, there is now a new Athens 441 show that is recorded live at the Morton showcasing local and national talent that airs on Sundays at 4pm.

If that weren’t lovely enough, the first act was The Lovell Sisters. They are a bluegrass (squeee!) group that recently won the Prairie Home Companion Nat’l Teen Talent competition last year, and are in general wonderful. My new favorites. They’re from Calhoun, GA. AND!!! And, they are playing in Raleigh the day after my birthday–which is a Friday, and which I might could make! (Never mind finals the next week.) Otherwise, they play in Augusta that next weekend.

Anyway, today was a great day if just for that. I’ve been listening to a lot more public radio now that I have no cable (because I’m cheap). (Technically, I still have tv because Dr. Reed did not cancel basic tv–but I am trying not to watch that either.) It’s kind of nice.

Also, N, my mother says that there’s a mechanical bull at the HC Rodeo and I could do that Sept 15-16. You could, too, as a matter of fact. Haha. Mark your calendar and bring your camera.

Happy Graduation!

Reed graduated on Saturday, and the family all turned out to cheer him on. After the ceremony, which was actually tolerable because they didn’t read all the undergrads’ names out, most of us went out to a huge Chinese banquet for lunch. We had such a good time being with everyone, celebrating Dr. Reed’s accomplishments. After lunch, we went on to another family function and got to see more family and celebrate a birthday and a lovely new house. It was a fun day, but we were so tired at the end!

Pictures coming soon!

Adventure List

| 2 Comments

Well, I was thinking today about my 100 adventures and how I would be able to fit them all in my life. If I just did one a year, I’d have to live to 126ish. I might need to pick up the pace. I figure that if I do about 20 every decade or so, that’s 50 years and 76 isn’t way out of the ballpark in life expectancy. (And yes, I would like to do them all, because what’s the point of making the list if not to actually do the things.) I went back through and looked at things that I might be able to do before the end of 2006. Some of the things are continuous, so they won’t ever be Done.

Learn to juggle. Participate in a Christmas Bird Count. See three plays a year (yeah, this is continuous, but I could still do this.) Ride a mechanical bull. Learn CPR. Write a letter to the editor. Learn to make rolls from scratch. Build a bird house. Learn to make fresh pasta.

I’m going to aim for two of these, but I haven’t decided which yet. Probably the rolls and plays.
