Wah, spring break is already over. Natchez was fun at the beginning of the week. I found out that the trunk of my car had been leaking and three inches of water had accumulated in it. It was fun to get out too because there is only one drain plug in the middle and there was a lot of water in the side compartments. I came back to Starkville on Wednesday and bored myself doing homework. Robyn came up Friday. We took the kids to the Hunt Club Saturday night. It was great fun; Sesti, Tony, and I actually sang karaoke. The song was Champagne Supernova by Oasis and it went fairly well until the end where "while we were getting high" gets repeated fifty freakin times. Then today Jeremy brought 64 pounds of crawfish up. I am so full now.

The Women's SEC Tournament was great. The first game against South Carolina was close enough to be really good. We completely out performed the other band so it was even better. Last night was interesting against Tennessee. Their band kept wanting to change the way we alternated playing on timeouts. Dr Min was not happy at all. They made it worse by playing during one of our time outs in the second half. At least Tennessee lost LSU by 16 in the championship. I hate LSU, but I hate Tennessee more in the short term. David and Misty drove up from Henderson and met us at the ghetto hotel last night. We never really went out on this trip, but it was a lot of fun.

I have been so sick since Monday. At least I'm pretty much well now but it seems that Berryhill has got it worse. At least Robyn had a good Fat Tuesday :)

Wowee, been a whole week without updates.

First good thing I did last week was see Cowboy Mouth at the Hunt Club on Thursday. They were great for the third time of course.

Then Friday I went down to that magical wonderland known as the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I made it down around 7ish, early enough to meet Robyn at her job at the clinic. Met her mom and the ladies she worked with there because they stayed late just to see me. Then we went to her house and I barely met her dad and brother before we went back out. Had those great martinis with real food at Applebees. Then we went down the coast for a while and went to the Grand and Boomtown. Wasted some money in the slot machines and went back to her house to sleep. Got up freakin early Saturday and went to a Catholic wedding for one of Robyn's coworker's son. It was really nice but took a whole hour in that great Catholic tradition of overly complicated wedding ceremonies. Then it seemed like we went shopping at most of the stores on the coast and I managed to keep Robyn from buying anything but a shirt and a new anklet. So by then it was late, and Robyn's friend Anna ditched us for going out to eat, so we went to this place called Fisherman's Harbor. It has to be the greatest feeling when your girlfriend agrees that buying a pitcher of beer would make much more sense than getting bottles. So she was a champ and ordered us a pitcher of Bud Light, a dozen raw oysters, and some cheese sticks. So we finished the oysters and got another dozen. Robyn found out that they had apple martinis so she got one of those too. It was huge compared to the Applebee's ones and a quarter cheaper and took both of us to finish it. Then we made it to the Isle of Capri and after a while found me a seat at a $5 blackjack table. I played for what seemed like more than an hour on $20. The dealer was a really fun guy, and it happened that the guy playing next to me was from Columbus. They helped me out so I learned a little more about blackjack. Robyn was happy watching and getting us both beer when the cocktail waitress came by. But after a while I lost the whole $20 when the mean lady dealer started back. At least I got 4 beers out of it and managed to tip the waitress $2.50 while having fun the whole time. Then we went to the Brew Pub at the Beau Rivage and drank a couple Biloxi Blonde's. There was a good band there covering good old stuff that everybody knew. They had an intermission and a dj started playing booty music so Robyn and I danced a bit since our Blonde's were gone. Then they played some great techno and it was so sweet. So much fun. By then we were pooped so we went back to her house and I crashed on the couch again. Had to get up at a terrible early hour today too, but her mom cooked us breakfast so it was all good. We went to Sunday school, where her dad turned out to be the teacher and had some interesting discussion on the difference between Baptists and Mormons. Then we went to church and I had to meet so many people. Some old lady asked if I was Robyn's fiance. Ha, that would be quick. After church we ate with the preacher and company. They had a nice time making a little fun of me and indicating that they are pretty protective of Robyn; like she needs that. After a while we made it back to her house and I left to make it back to Starkvegas at 8. Yep, another great weekend. Seems like I cannot have a sucky weekend anymore.

Wheee, what a weekend. Robyn made it up here Friday afternoon. Josh and I cooked pizzas for the girls. We had a manly pizza for us with a whole pound of sausage, most of an onion, peppers, pepperoni, and two kinds of cheese. The girls pizza was little and only had pepperoni and cheese on it with peppers on half.

So then there was a party that night and I already have the pictures up. No guitar playing dorks this time but there was this girl who showed up with somebody and stayed on the phone the whole time. I think she disappeared after Mike and Bryan started plotting on the other end of the couch. I hear that the party lasted until 3AM but I crashed pretty early. My own fault for using too much Everclear in my drink.

So Saturday we hit the Hat because the theater was too full at 2 to see Old School. Saw Old School at 4 and it was great. Robyn and I went to big ole Columbus because she suddenly wanted to go to Old Navy and try and waste some money. We went to Applebee's so that I could try out her favorite drink, a green apple martini. It was so nice being 21 out somewhere with a 21 year old woman for the first time. After that I took her out to Fantasy Land. Yep good times. Sadly I think I have been out there four or five times. Never bought anything there besides incense and that Christmas that I bought people funny stuff. Came back to Starkvegas and finished the evening off with a little Office Space.

Yep, loads of fun. So this weekend gets the number one spot, last weekend's Mardi Gras ball gets number two :) It has been such a nice semester so far.

I have to keep updating this on a regular basis because my brother, the almighty David, checks it daily.

Arg, Bill's wonderful 120GB hard drive died early Friday morning. I am still missing some stuff from the webpage but here is a start on putting it back. Bill is now running off of two 4 gig SCSI drives and using my extra Western Digital 15.3 as my "mp3" drive.

This weekend was great. The ball was so much bigger than what I had imagined. There were at least a few thousand people there, everyone was dressed in such nice formal wear and getting completely wasted. There were only like four bands/dj's in different parts of the place :) I got to see Cowboy Mouth again. We (Nicole, Monica, Me, Adam, Amanda, and Courtney) ended up in one of the "booty music" dj places and had a nice time. Saturday we went to Gulf Shores. That's right, I was on the freakin beach on Feb 15! And it was not freezing at all! There were even little kids playing in the water. Then we went shopping at a bazillion places; I got some more souvenir shop sunglasses and my yearly pair of Reef flip-flops. Ate at the Oyster House and had crawfish cooked three different ways. Anyway we eventually made it back to Starkvegas Sunday night where it was a nice 31 degrees and I had on but flip-flops and short sleeves.

Friday morning, Robyn and I decided to go the boyfriend/girlfriend route, so I am not a single boy anymore. Yah for me, no seriously I am really happy. Trying out the long distance relationship. At least it will not be this way forever with her coming to State in the fall. Seems like we talk an hour or two every day which is nice because it is more than I talked to my gf per day when I had one here :) Anyway I will get to see Robyn in a mere three days, and I am going to the coast to see her the next week.

See what happens when crap breaks? I have to make really long posts. Last Thursday night I went to a casino for the first time. Ben randomly messaged me and asked if I wanted to go. So we went to the Golden Moon and had some fun. I played blackjack and ended up only down $5 on the night. We were comped a buffet so the $5 was not bad at all.

As the party fund stagnates at $0....

I talked to Robyn last night for hours. My poor phone's life time has made it to 34.5 hours now and I had only reached 24 hours last week. I am halfway through my 1000 night and weekend minutes for this month. Looking at Cingular's website, the "Cingular Preferred Nation 250" that I have has been upgraded to have 5000 night and weekend minutes. Maybe I can get mine changed for free.

Sitting on my balcony, no shoes, on the internet, not a cloud in the sky. It's so pretty. Now if the girl from across the way would come out on her balcony...

Picked up my tux. First time I have ever gotten a tux with tails. It seems more like a cape than a jacket.
