Random...

I've decided to start telling you some of my random experiences, teaching randomly fun things, and/or just posting random things on my blog... let me know if you have any random thoughts on this!


First of all...
Today I enjoyed my first bicycle pump! To give someone a pump is to let them sit on your seat while you pedal them somewhere. Well, my friend decided to give me a 'pump' to her house after class (completely on the other side of campus). Well, talk about technical difficulties! For starters she is a whole lot taller than I am and had to basically tilt her bike sideways for my hindquarters to get on the seat! When she tried to put her foot on the pedal we realized that her backpack was way too full for me to fit behind it, so I put her pack on top of mine... pretty heavy! And both of them together probably hung out a few feet behind me!
Well, I finally got on and she started going. Every time there were people in front of us she would slow down and I thought we'd fall over, every bump hurt me making my legs fall even more asleep, and I felt like I was going to fall backwards because of how back-heavy I was. Other than that it was a rather enjoyable experience! :) Too bad I don't have a picture to show you how funny it must have looked. I don't know if it was just how we looked that made everyone look. I guess it could have been the fact that I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe; they were probably just waiting for me to fall off!



Second peice of randomness...
I was telling Elisa about pringle surfing, so here's a picture of my friend and I pringle surfing in Arizona last month. It's amazing how much fun simple things can be when you're in a desert!
P.S. It's a lot harder than it looks!!!




Third...
I'm really glad that this blogger thing saves the things you do as drafts when you accidently hit the back button in the middle of writing. I was just about to post this when I did the unthinkable... hurray for google!

Love the random thoughts!! And I am so glad you have a blog. Mine is kind of like my journal now, since I can't really remember the last time that I wrote in a journal (kinda sad). But it is fun to write little entries, and keep up on everyone else.

ps Pringle surfing looks like fun, it is a must for my next road trip!
