Lazy Days...Though Not By Choice

I'm not a bad blogger, I promise. It's just that nothing is going on in my life right now. The World Cup was the most interesting thing occupying my thoughts when I got back from Spain, but now that's over (Spain won! Viva Espana! I did a major happy dance...) and I'm back to boredom.

It kicked in a lot faster than I thought it would. I'm looking for any excuse to not go back to ths house because I know once I get back to the couch, I'm pretty much not getting up until many, many hours around bedtime.

It's kind of nice to have a lot of flexibility, I guess, but I just want something to DO. My hope for a job at the radio station isn't going to pan out, and the people who want regular babysitters already have them. I'm working Praise Week right now, but that'll be over Friday (on a related note, I get to play a GPS named Carmen. All my mockery of my Garmin will finally be worth it!).


Anyway, some little things have happened lately. I got my final grades from Spain, and they're both A's! I still have my 4.0 GPA! Even though that's what I had all through high school, it's so much more satisfying to have that after a full year (plus a summer term) of college. Also, my church had a prelim meeting about our new college & career/singles group. It was a small, but good, group, and we had a lot of fun. I kind of hope we end up calling the group J-ello...I really like J-ello (both as a name and a food)

On that note, pudding is better than J-ello. I had the choice of which to make today, and I chose pudding. Of course, you can make pudding in five minutes. J-ello takes hours. I do not have that kind of patience.

All right, I'm getting weird due to tiredness. Later.

Viva Espana!

I have never been a fan of soccer. Never. To me, there's not much action, it's low-scoring, and there are no commercial breaks, so if you have to get food/go to the bathroom/etc., you might miss something. And with my luck, that would be when the only action happens.

(For example, I am currently waiting on the Spain vs. Germany game to start. I am also waiting on a phone call from a potential employer for the summer. I am 99.9% positive he will call during the game.)

However, seeing as I was in Spain when the World Cup started and Spain is still in the chase for the championship (!!!), I am way too into this tournament than I normally would be.

Now I am insistant that I watch all of Spain's games, I wear my jersey to watch said games, and I can actually hold a conversation about the World Cup with people I know who love soccer.

Go me! Go Spain! Viva Espana!

Only an hour until the game. Viva La Roja! Beat Germany!

(BTW, the above picture of of my favorite Spain player, David Villa (#7). He is Spain's star player, having scored 6 of Spain's 7 World Cup goals this year. Villa, Villa, Marvavilla!)
