Good Weekend

Good news: I am back to blonde! And my hair is eight inches shorter. It is quite a change to run my fingers through my hair and have it end so much sooner. But I love it!
This weekend Russ and I went up to Logan. The roads were snowy and we're grateful to have made it there and back safely. We played games with the Lee family, visited with our good friend Gabe, ate lots of good food, and even made a rainbow cake! It was a relaxing 24 hours.
We saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on Friday night and loved it! Except nobody told me that it was as long as Titanic. The movie started at 10:30 and didn't end until 1:30 in the morning! But it was an incredible film, really thought-provoking. I thought the cinematography was breathtaking too.
Before our movie, Russ wanted to check out the Quary so we walked over there and the guy working there let Russ climb the wall for free! He loved it. As soon as his Gold's Gym pass is up in two years, he wants a rock climbing membership. I think the place smells like stinky feet.
Now the fun is over and it's back to the grindstone. But more good news: the end is near! April is coming and there are only a few weeks left in the semester. I am determined to be optimistic. Otherwise I will look at the cold windy snow outside and run back into my room and pull my head under the covers and not come out until final exams have ended.

If Anyone Was Wondering...

...This is what I looked like as a little girl.

No Boys Allowed

Okay. I am starting to get annoyed by that cranky baby face that pops up every time I open my blog. So I am posting a piece of news. Last night, there were TWO MALES in my pilates class. This is extremely rare. Usually my class consists of about thirty girls. Females. No boys allowed. Are they just looking for extra humiliation? Don't they know about the unwritten code that says any boys joining a women's pilates class will be laughed right out of town? Guys shouldn't do pilates. They should do boy things...running, weightlifting, basketball, hockey, I don't know. But NOT pilates.
I can't help but wonder what the motivation is behind this. Why on earth would they want to come to a class full of girls whose bums are in the air half the time? Don't answer that. As if what we do isn't embarrassing enough without boys watching.
To make things worse, we did partner exercises last night. Naturally these two boys teamed up and were climbing all over each other and trying to balance on each others' backs. I can't imagine anything more awkward.
To all the guys out there who really want to do pilates, have some class, do it at home. Don't join a class full of girls and make things 100 times more awkward for everybody.
