That's what my old dentist used to call me. Then I changed to the adult dentist. That's not supposed to sound pornish. And now I don't have a dentist because I don't have insurance. I'm trying to get it, but the insurance people are dumb and my form got sent back to me and I have to fix something then send it back. Plus, I swear I have some sort of throat ailment. Let's just hope it's a virus and not strep throat. Otherwise, I'm spreading it around. But that has nothing to do with the dentist because my health insurance does not include dental.

My life isn't exciting anymore. But here's what's been going on:

Ummm, I've been going to a lot of sporting events lately. In one week I went to 2 Gopher bkb games, a Badger hockey game, a Badger bkb game, and a Gopher football game. We won them all except the hockey game. The Badgers got beat by Denver with 20 seconds left in OT (3-4). Bummer.

I visited Sarah in Madison last weekend. It wasn't fun driving there...because of the snow and all. It took 4.5 hours to get there instead of the usual 3.25. The first hour was really rough going, let me tell you. Anyway, while at Sarah's we went to a hockey game Saturday night. I had only been to one other hockey game in my life. I think I was in 6th grade and I went to a high school hockey game. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not since I don't know anything about hockey. Aside from the blatently obvious. Like, I don't even know what icing is. I didn't know what a zamboni was until a few years ago. That said, I actually really enjoyed the game. It was fun to watch. Them boys is good with the puck and stick.

The next day Sarah's parents gave us their tickets to the Badger basketball game due to boiler issues in the house. That was very nice. Apparently, Kirk's dad (Paul) has season tickets right behind her dad. But he wasn't at the game. :(

On Sunday, Sarah, Nikki, and I went to see Borat. It was funny enough, I guess, but I was disappointed in it. I just kept thinking that it seemed to be mocking people from Khazakstan and implying that they were ridiculously stupid and backward. Yes, I know that wasn't the point, but I kept thinking it anyway.

Then I drove home on Monday after eating lunch with Sarah, her mom, and her nephew Owen. He is cute. I can't get over the babies using sign language thing. Adorable.

Right after getting home I drove up the the Twin Cities with my dad to go to a Gopher basketball game. It was pretty pathetic, let me tell you. They were playing NDSU (North Dakota brother's alma mater). Guess what the score was 10 minutes into the game? 5-8. Seriously. Gophers had 5 points, NDSU 8. TEN MINUTES into the game!!! The second half was markedly improved, but crikey.

Then on Friday we drove up and saw them again. We had to buy tickets outside the arena, because a whole gaggle of us were going (me, my mom and dad, Brian and Shannon and Riley, and Shannon's parents). My dad was holding Riley who, btw, was wearing this gigantically poofy down (aka feather) snowsuit. He was haggling with this scalper, and when he refused to buy the ticket at the price he was offering (I just remembered...they were playing Long Island...not exactly a big-ticket event)...where was I? Oh yeah, when my dad refused to buy the ticket from him the guy yelled to him, "I hope your baby freezes and dies!" Wtf??? What a psycho! Yeah.

The next day we went to the Gopher football game where they beat Iowa and thus became Bowl eligible. Yay.

Oh, on Wednesday I went to the Cities with my mom and we went shopping, then we picked Liz up at the airport. Then we ate dinner at the Green Mill. Then we drove Liz home and then we drove home.

Thursday's Thanksgiving. I like to eat on Thanksgiving. Well, I always like to eat, but I like Thanksgiving food. We always host Thanksgiving at our house, but I don't think many people are coming this year. More food for me, I say.

I think that's all. I feel bad for not having any pictures, but I didn't take any pictures at any of the aforementioned events. So now I will peruse my photo archive and post a random picture for all to enjoy:I don't think Sarah will be happy with me for postng this picture, even thought I think she looks fine in it. I just think it's funny that she's holding a ukulele. Does anyone else think it's funny that both Sarah and Brighton own a ukulele? I don't think Sarah reads my blog. I think she just looks at the pictures.

Um, I believe we saw Borat on Saturday, not Sunday. You fool! Sunday was the day we ate lunch ate Ian's. Man, check your facts, please.

Oh, I loved your post, by the way. Anytime my name is mentioned (or my picture is posted) I just die with pleasure!!
