Save the Drama for your Mama

Well all, I know, I suck. I have no idea what my anti-blogging deal is lately. But I do have all kinds of interesting things to talk about. The first is THE DRAMA.

Oh the drama. I'm so glad I'm on this reunion committee if only for the entertaining drama. And I've found that one good thing about being semi-invisible in high school is that no one expects you to get involved in the drama now either. So I can just sit back and watch. First, someone got kicked off the committee last week. Now I wasn't there of course, so I've got two different sides of the story, but the most entertaining part is that this girl is so stomping mad that she is now planning a RIVAL REUNION. Ha! She is so angry that she claims she's got a list of 200+ alumni that she refuses to share with the committee because she's inviting them to HER reunion. I told Ryan this and said, "See Ryan! My girls and I don't have ANY drama compared to this!" The other bit of drama is that there is a girl who was the original leader who was overthrown. Well, she still thinks she's in charge I think. So I get emails from her, and emails from the current leader, and its so confusing. But fun!

Anyway, besides the drama, the committee is already taking up WAY more time than I thought. But the drama is SO worth it. More drama stories to come...

I went to the doctor today. None of it was necessarily good news. I have a whole lot of tests in my near future. But I firmly believe that I'm 27, healthy, and in shape. That's all in my favor! There's only so much you can do to fight genetics, right? But I'm trying to do good stuff for my body, and that's all I can do. So send good vibes to my internals, k? (and no I'm not pregnant! don't ask!)

Mika the Monster is back in doggie training. I'm not convinced any of this is going to fix the food aggression, but at least its keeping her busy. She's back in the beginning class, so she's like a superstar compared to the other pups, so that's good for us as dog parents to see. See! She's not the most ill-behaved dog out there!

I haven't yet talked about last weekend. Well, last Fri night was Prom. And for real, we all dressed up in prom outfits. And met at Mini's parents' house for pictures. For real, just like our high school prom. We went out for dinner at just a regular place, and boy did we get looks. Then it was off to the casino for drinking and gambling, just because we couldn't do either our first time around at prom.

I'm still sadly on a picture-taking hiatus. I don't know what's wrong with me. I still carry my camera anywhere, but I'm just not pulling it out. But I do have a fun assignment for my father-in-law to do, so hopefully that will get me back into it.

OK, I'm going to drink off the day. I hope you all are making it through the week!

A rival reunion? Are you kidding me?? Are we still in high school? Lol i totally get the whole photography dry spell thing. I carry my camera everywhere too but just haven't been shooting in the last little bit. Forced myself to get out a bit yesterday on my day off before i drank the night away :P and was really disappointed with the results. Sigh... one of these days I will take something brilliant.

I saw something about feeding dogs with food agression out of your hand until they learn that hands = good. Have you tried that? I'm kind of assuming you did, or whatever trainer you are using suggested it. But in case you haven't tried I thought I would throw that out there.

:) I'm about to head off to drink off my day too. Yikes, am I in a irritable mood at the moment.

Like you, I had lots of tests this week, with more to come it sounds like, due to a hypothyroid. Oh, the fun!! Best of luck with your upcoming tests!

Sounds like the committee is keeping you pre-occupied! I love sitting back and watching drama unfold, as long as I'm not in the center of it all.

Have an incredible weekend!!

Oh man, I totally want to plan a rival-union now, too. Not that I can possibly be bothered, or anything.
I know what you're saying about carrying the camera everywhere but never pulling it out... I've been in that funk for a month or so now. Well, there's a UCI world cup race this afternoon, so maybe I'll start clickin' (guaranteed, the batteries will die, tho)

Hi from Micheles.

You know, I never went to my prom (I was an unpopular geek) and then when it was time for the reunion, I didn't go - 185.00 for one night was too rich for my blood - but now I wish I had. Have fun with the drama!

Oh, and I get the anti-blogging thing. For me, I think it's just the busy-ness of the changing season...

Wow, this reunion thing really is a step back to high school isn't it? Kinda makes you remember why you're glad to be out! Ahhh, the devil dog. Hopefully the doggie reform school will change his nasty habits! Here from Michele's!
