Nerdy? or Totally Awesome?!

I got a new GPS for Christmas. A few days ago I was checking out all the free cool stuff that you can add to the GPS such as different voices or vehicles. Did you happen to know that my GPS can speak to me in Yeti? Or squirrel? Or that my car can be a sled? Or the Black Pearl? Or the upside down Black Pearl? After exploring all these rather exciting new options, that were also apparently available when I had my old GPS, I discovered something so awesome that I could not resist downloading it.

Prepare yourself for the awesomeness I'm about to bestow unto you.

I turned my car into a broom.

Which, of course, means that I am now just like Harry Potter.

I've decided. It's definitely not nerdy. It's totally and completely awesome.

An Epic February

I'm beyond excited for this month. I haven't been this excited in a long long time actually.

On February 14th I'll be going to New Jersey and New York to see my family and Laura!!! Terry and Peter and my mom will all be there. It was an impromptu decision to go, but I think it's going to mostly be awesome! I had the days off because I was going to go see Emily for Mardi Gras, but that was turning out so that I couldn't afford it. I was so looking forward to seeing her too. But I'll see her in April at the very least.

Then! On February 23 I depart for the Great State of Oklahoma! By then it will have been more than 6 months since I've been home. That's an unreal amount of time to me. Sometimes it feels like I've been gone for years, but most of the time it feels like weeks. I don't care what I do in Norman either. Except eat at Tarahumara's. Because Mexican food is awful in Florida! Then on the 25th I'll see Elton John and Billy Joel, which will be magnificent, of course.

The trip home also serves as the last step on my decision to continue living in Florida for at least another year or not. So expect a blog in March detailing my decision. And I'm not going to tell any of you any other way than via this blog!

Also, the Super Bowl is airing a commercial of Harry Potter world!!! And guess what?! The Super Bowl's in February too!

Dan and I have epic sword battles all over the place. And I always defeat him. This particular defeat happened in the Nerf aisle of Walmart. We've had battles in Germany, England and Adventureland. I wonder where our next one will be?!

This quote about sums up my life right now. I think I should make a gigantic poster of it just to remind me at all times.
