world-class sporting events, a collection of world-renowned training
facilities, and an average year-round temperature of 71 degrees Fahrenheit,
Lake County, Fla., has proven to be a competitive outdoor sports mecca.

sport in the county.
The area's gently rolling hills, country roads, year-round mild climate,
clean lakes and wholesome family atmosphere attract competing athletes

"Brat Camp works for the same reason that Jamie's Kitchen was so compelling. In both instances, uncooperative youngsters are encouraged to develop self-respect and responsibility. Jamie Oliver appeared to teach it instinctively, drawing on vast reservoirs of enthusiasm, good humour and tolerance. Similarly, although the Americans leading the six British teenagers through the Utah desert apply a set of unbending rules, those rules are based on common sense and ameliorated by kindness, encouragement and patience. What these young people learn is one thing; what parents can learn is equally important."
This is what happens when you get crazy messages from Mio with repeating letters and symbols that once in a great while turn into words. Due to my mysteriously depleting typing skills, some have went as far as theorizing that it was just me being incoherent, as usual.
Not yet. As you may notice, my computer is off. That isn't because I found a life, but it IS because Mio sat on the keyboard and made my computer go insane with stupid noises and changes in resolution settings.
Look at how proud this jerk is. Damn attention whore. How I love him.
This is Eric and I at Big Boy. I was desperately trying to take a picture of "Scott?" (sorry, Eric, I am the worst person with names, I bet I made that up, didn't I) who looked a lot like Kieran Culkin. There was one with a blurry back of his head a kilometer from us, but I decided against posting it. Instead, here's more of Eric:
Moo didn't want to have pictures taken of him because he had no makeup on. I would not cooperate.
Eric decided to contaminate my water, like an ass.
Then he tried it.
We abused the entry sheets for some childrens contests, but had to "fix" all of the profanity or else we'd get kicked out. Or so "Scott" said.
I watched Carrie at school, where the VCR devoured the library tape at the very last scene, and now I'm not sure what happens. Last time I knew the story, I was about 8. I read the book in secret at my grandma's house. No one ever knew, but I sure as hell had a lot of nightmares for the next few years. Despite me not knowing what exactly happens to Carrie in the end, I highly recommend the movie. I was actually shocked at how awesome it was.
I was almost late to my orgo 2 class, where the professor refused to let us know the easy way to make some sort of a street drug. He said he'd give us the formulas and mechanisms for coke, but he also mentioned that he's only giving that to us because he doesn't think any one of us would be able to make it. Anyone wanna buy some fine Ivanna-has-barely-a-C-in-orgo-2-quality cocaine?
Later Eric and I rented Edward Scissorhands and we wasted about three and a half hours on watching that + TV + each other. It was fucking great.
Apparently, everyone but me knew that I'm going whitewater rafting in April. John called me 7 times to plan, too. As much as it was news to me, I MIGHT GO AFTER ALL!
I didn't find one, but I didn't look that closely. This one, however, can be dyed any color, or so it says.

So why have I not been listening to TMBG lately? They are so cheering. The Johns rock.
Something true that I scribbled on the letterhead of the spa I went to and then stuffed in my purse (I stuffed the paper in my purse, not the spa. Sorry; I am currently incapable of speaking English.):
An interesting thing about spas is that, when inside, the time-measuring instrument of choice is not the watch; it's the treatment.
