My perfect day

so I was pretty bored in class the other day and I decided to plan my perfect day. This, however, is no ordinary day, I decided that I wouldn't have any travel-time constraints on my perfect day (although I actually do like car trips and plane rides...) there is still a 24- hour time limit. So here it is...

9:00- 10:00 ~ I like to sleep in so my day is starting at 9. I wake up at home in Las Vegas and my whole family is there, like Christmas moring, and we make oven pancakes.

10:00- 12:00 ~ go to Waimea with all my friends in Hawaii, all of them, even the ones that are now gone... and we do everything! We jump off the rock and go to the toilet bowl and out to the island and swim with dolphins and sea turtles. (i've done it before, and yes it does fit into only two hours)

12:00- 1:00 ~ get a hotdog, the best hotdog ever, in Vienna. At the stand at the Wahringer strasse stop on the U-3. Except here I travel because I really like watching people on the subway... Its a Linzer Bratwurst, so it is on a toasted bun with sauerkraut and garlic-breaded onions and only a little bit of ketchup.

1:00- 3:00 ~ Play tennis. With Cami and Brit and my mom and John. My dad and any other tennis enthusiasts can come by too.I dont care if I win, but my serve is really on, because its a perfect day...
3:00- 5:00 ~ go cliff jumping at Lake Powell and then get whipped behind the boat by my brothers. We can have Banana wars too, but I mostly like getting whipped.
5:00-7:00 ~ Watch a movie. I really like doing this... maybe a new one or one of my favorites; Charade, Stranger Than Fiction or Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius.
7:00-8:00 ~ Eat thai food at Haleiwa eats here on Oahu. Yellow curry noodles and coconut rice, and I steal some of someone's Panang curry too.
* and for dessert they surprise me with a raspberry tart from Stoher in Paris... the best.
8:00- 9:30 ~ Read Cannery row, my favorite book, and write something of my own too! Oh ya, and while I'm reading my cat Dr. Earl is there to sit on my lap and purr

9:30- 10:00 ~ Put Meg Hogle to bed.
10:00- 11:59 ~ Play cards. First I play rook in Canada until my family goes to bed and then I finish the night with some nerts in Hawaii. And we make chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal in them. And we have an impromptu 30 minute dance party...

11:59 ~ go to sleep on the top of the house boat at a sandy beach in west Canyon. Not a cloud in sight...

Terminal Velocity Achieved

So I jumped out of a plane the other day... i went 180 MPH. i did, science tells me so.

Sweet jumpsuits , huh.

It all began when my great friend Jane came to visit. From the beginning of her trip she was all "lets go sky diving1" and I thought we never would so I was all "ok!"
Much to my surprise we actually went, I was really scared and made everyone listen to coldplay on the way to calm my nerves... the magical music worked though. Because once we got in that plane I was pumped!
and oh that thousands of feet of falling...
