It's baseball postseason. The Nats have made playoff history which means the boyyyfffrriiieennnddd in Washington is a happy man.

#WheelsuptoWashington next weekend. Hey Luke, meet me at Capitol Hill Friday afternoonish.

T-3 weeks until the birthday.

 It made me incredibly nervous that I walked out of my history midterm super confident. Maybe because I actually knew what I was studying? Weird. 

 While taking my history mid-term, I would look up every couple of minutes, and notice my professor reading the book we are assigned. I'm on Chapter 10. He just started the book Wednesday. It feels good to be ahead. 

The state of Kentucky got to be in the spotlight this week (other than the greatest two minutes in sports) as the cute little town of Danville, KY played host to the one and only Vice Presidential Debate. The weather couldn't have been better, the campus of Centre College is absolutely stunning, and the students showed the true meaning of southern hospitality. 

 Did I mention no glee until NOVEMBER? At least I'll have a new gLee Christmas CD to look forward to. 

 UL is on a quest to become 6-0 tomorrow as they face Pittsburgh. But lets face it. A lot of the Big East writers believe that Pittsburgh will crush this dream and make us 5-1.

 I've tweeted and re-tweeted 4,370 times. Ole girl needs to get a life. 


 As of tonight, I've had my first serving of peppermint ice cream and homemade hot fudge sauce. 

 I also got to experience the first cup of the season of Mom's homemade hot chocolate. Mom doesn't fail in the making her chillens happy department. 

 I'm about to give up on deciding what kind of birthday cake I want. 

Rumors are floating around that Emily Maynard and Jef with one F have gone to splitsville. Who called that one?? 

 I heard that sometimes I can be a little wordy on here. I'm sorry, I can't help that I talk too much. 

 I went to Target today, and while walking cart racing down the aisles, I noticed a white thing at the end of one of them. Target already has some of their CHRISTMAS decorations up. People, People, People, can we puhlease get through Halloween first? Yeesh. 

 Speaking of #WheelsuptoWashington, I was told to pack a Little Black Dress. And so I'm bringing mine from my sophomore year in HIGH SCHOOL. The fact that I can still fit into it is kind of mind boggling. 

Washington Friday through Sunday, school Monday, and Taylor Swift's new CD Red will be on my doorstep by the time I arrive home from school. #goodweekend

 You don't learn to appreciate your siblings until you haven't seen your own sister in two weeks. Between crazy schedules and traveling, I haven't laid eyes on her since September 30th. The last time this sort of event happened was Spring 2007. #Rainman 

 Ladies and gentlemen, the real reason I came on here tonight is to announce that BASKETBALL season has arrived. Big Blue madness started the evening, followed by a solid three hours of continuous coverage from all over the nation not including UL. Don't get me wrong, I love football season, but who doesn't love five months of hearing nothing but swoops of the ball into the basket, and the constant sound of shoes squeaking on the floor? I've learned to appreciate the little things in life.

Oops..They Did It Again...

WARNING: Mom, here is the post where I will complain about not getting a Fall Break. So I suggest you stop reading.

Planning ahead gets me in trouble. I don't know what I did to deserve it, but the scheduling gods gave me the weekend off at the market. Perfect. I have a mid-term on Monday, and with the days off, I'll be able to study, and then after my Blue Book essay test, I'll go and get that end of summer pedicure I never got. And then, I walked into my history class.
This Explains It All. 
I'll make this story short and sweet. After taking a class vote and losing by a mere 26 votes, my mid-term has been pushed back to Wednesday.

In local Sports news, after suffering a torn something last season, one of UL's basketball players was finally cleared to start practicing for this season, and after an exhausting ten minutes in to his first practice, he suffered a career ending torn ACL. #notgood. At least UL basketball is a pre-seasoned ranked #2 in the country.

On the football front, UL football is one of 22 schools undefeated. A great 5-0 start. Oh, and that game against Southern Miss, was nasty. Like, their field was flooded nasty. Our next game? 11:00 AM on ESPNU. Here we are the #19th ranked team and the country and we get a 11:00 AM game? In OCTOBER? That sort of thing usually happens the Friday after Thanksgiving, not five weeks into the season. #Kegsandeggs

Moving on...

Last week was the first week of deciding what to watch Thursday night. I filmed both Grey's and gLee,  but watched Grey's live. I just got around to watching gLee from last week, and I'm already freaking out again for this week. Find out who breaks up with who on gLee and covering British band Coldplay or re-live the plane crash? This madness has got to stop.

The final season of Jersey Shore premieres Thursday night. Why am I not concerned this won't be the last season?

The Academy announced that Family Guy and American Dad creator Seth McFarlen will be hosting the 85th Academy Awards come February 2013.

Drew Barrymore of E.T. : Extra Terrestrial fame, welcomed daughter Olive last week after denying reports she was preggo. #AWK.

The Dave Matthews Band is coming to the Derby City. December 4th. I'm going. Who cares if it's the night before finals week begins?

Mom made an outstanding dinner Sunday night. Pork roast with a mushroom and apple concac cream sauce, tomato mozzarella salad with vinaigrette, au gratin potatoes, asparagus, cooked carrots, HOMEMADE white cheddar, rosemary and thyme bread, and to finish it off, homemade individual Derby Pies for dessert. It's not very often she gets to have her chillens and parents at the dinner table.

I know we are weeks out, but I can't decide what kind of birthday cake to accompany my dinner. Mom's homemade devils food or flour-less chocolate cake.

Mondays are unnecessary. But, if there was one good thing to come out of a Monday, my teacher announced that the Monday of Thanksgiving week, my 8 AM class will be cancelled. #Thankful

I know how I will be spending the Monday of Thanksgiving week, I will be completing my F-R-I-E-N-D-S dvd collection. It's not everyday that Target has each season on sale for a whopping $10.

As a part to ruin her new album, Taylor Swift released her new title track Red. Begin Again is still my favorite. 20 days and counting.

Former Bachelorette star Emily Maynard tweeted "The reason my heart smiles" and a picture of she and her daughter. I thought if you are engaged, one would tweet a picture of you and your fiance. Somethings not right here.

If you are looking for the next best cookie, look no further and try Trader Joe's Gingersnaps. They have pieces of real ginger in them. Which means they can be called gingersnaps for a reason.

You know how much I despise baseball. It's way too long of a season, and nine innings is just too long of a game. Correction. I hate baseball until October. Why October? October is playoff season. And Tuesday night, my phone and heart was all a twitter. Luke Russert is a huge Washington Nationals Fan. They did something good? Something about making into the divisional play offs? He was there to see the winning run, and had to leave the after game celebration a little early to go get a playoff hat. I felt like I was there with him. And then he tweets the following, "oh, just got home, and the #Cowboys are getting smoked. Hahahahaha yes it's a perfect #DC night indeed." After his Twitter marathon it was impossible to fall asleep.

Just to clear things up. My hair is not black. It is a darker shade of a chestnut brown.

I have introduced the concept of Facetime or more commonly known as Skyping to mi familia. It's amazing what technology can do these days.
