August Update: Pool, Rodeos and Music

Hi there! So summer pool session is officially over. And to be quite blunt, last night's matches aren't worth talking about. We lost horribly, myself included. But we all had a good time doing it, and that's the point. :) I played a wonderful lady named Mary who is half my size and incredibly cute. I also got approached by a very drunk woman and her less drunk mother-in-law (strange...) who wanted to know why I was on the pool team. Apparently there was some bet going on about if I was dating one of the guys, because they just couldn't believe that I, of my own volition, so sweet and pretty-looking (her words), had up and joined a pool team. Apparently there are better things to do at 9:30 p.m. on a Wednesday night. I happen to think being a pool shark in incredibly acceptable. Huh...

On the upside, I got recognition by the league for winning 5 out of 9 games this session. My name got put on a special list, and I was very proud.

So I took a quick trip to Boise (more specifically, Homedale) this weekend. It was a grand ol' time. The first stop was a bar, of course, where my cowboys were getting loaded and talking about girls. We didn't stay long because the bar closed at 1 a.m. (this was very outrageous to the boys, of course), but I managed to fit a dance in with Brian before the doors closed. The band that night was fantastic. I had a kick seeing April's digs and her adorable son. I also enjoyed seeing her hubbie and step-son, who are about the best people around. The rodeo rocked my socks off, and the dance that followed shot any other country dance I've been to out of the water. A HUGE dance floor, a ROCKIN' band, and not an inch of open space to be seen! Everyone was on their feet. I danced quite a few songs with Brian, watched quite a few, too, and danced one with Tim. Good stuff.

I've been listening to a lot of Tracy Chapman in the mornings lately, and not a whole lot else. I'm looking for new stuff, by the way, so feel free to send some suggestions my direction. Kara sent this video to me today, though, and it made me smile in a 'I think Jaima will like this song' sort of way. So... here it goes:



Today I am a happy, colorful lizard sitting in the sun.

However... As good as the song is, I feel like it is brought down by the kid's horrible hair do. Is Justin Beaver REALLY a look you want to follow? And also, he needs a massage. He's gonna get back problems scrunching his shoulders up like that all the time...

Too funny! I was thinking the SAME thing! I was going to write, "I DO like that song (but the guys really need hair cuts)." You beat me to it. :)

I was frightened by how young they look and then I felt old.
Sounds like you had a great time in I-De-Ho!

PS I always feel really successful when you put a song I showed you on your blog. Yay!

It's Justin "Bieber". Get with the program. :).

I like the song. Check out MIKA on my blog. : )

I DID know I was spelling Beaver wrong. I just don't really like the kid. So I displayed it by not taking the time to look up his name. Kinda mean, I know, but I could have done worse. :)
