The night of darkness

Not sure if any of you heard about the raging tornados that have been blasting through Georgia, but last night we became victims of the monster. Heres a play by play..

I'm sitting at the kitchen table studying cardiopulmonary physiology like a good girl and next thing you know my TV sounds like an alarm clock. (what..most people dont study while watching tv??) I look up and notice the TV is red...and saying "TAKE COVER NOW! DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE TORNADO...IT MAY BE TOO LATE" What kind of message is that? Don't wait until you see the tornado??? It may be too late? Like you could just watch the tornado coming at you and have the chance of outrunning it like a game of tag or something. So silly. Next thing you know....Silence & Darkness. Look down at my cardiopulmonary physiology papers and think "perfect excuse to call it a night". Take my fresh made guacamole down to the neighbors with some drinks....and had the perfect candle lit evening. I think it's odd how whenever there is a power outtage or a big storm....everyone decides to party. Since it wasn't actively raining or hailing here, my whole condo complex went out on the doc and got wasted. The power turned on for a second...and the drunkards on the dock described it as "it looked like watching a Christmas tree get lit up"...haha.


So that was my fun evening. NO WORRIES GUYS!!! I Got my run in earlier. It was cool because the wind was so strong...and I decided to do some sprints afterwards. When I ran with the wind I felt like it was going to whisk me away Dorothy style. Also here are pics from that 5k I ran...


Hope everyone had a greattttttt weekend! 4 finals starting tomorrow......eeeeeeeeeeek!

p.s. Why is it called "jewish" rye bread? is there Catholic rye bread? Am I buying the wrong kind???? :P

drinks on a dock in the dark...sounds way better than preping for an exam.

Tornado coming. Into the basements "Take my fresh made guacamole down to the neighbors with some drinks". You've got your priorities I see.

Thanks to you now I know the perfect way to prepare for a tornado if one should ever roll into town...Just have to make sure I have plenty of margarita mix on hand!
