Laughin out loud

I have a new favorite picture! It's as if he is saying, "Why are these white people hugging me?" Good stuff. :)

This weekend Jeremy, Brent and Jamie came to see me. It was SO fantastic to all be together again. As I'm sure you all have experienced, there are those few friends who bring out the real you. And the combination of all of all of you together makes the YOU even better. That's how it is with us four. Never best pals in college, but now....it's like no group I've ever been a part of. We literally did NOTHING this whole weekend. But I laughed til my face hurt from smiling. The sad part is that Brent is moving to Florida next week. It's so far away for a friend who has always been a stop on my way home to Lubbock. But I guess a friend is always just a phone call away.

Jamie and I made a basket of stuff to give Brent. All inside jokes from ACU and a few since. But the best thing we gave him was a frame with 2 pictures in it of the 4 of us, and a quote "Wherever you are, it's your friends who make your world."

I need your help!

I am throwing a lingerie shower here on Thursday night and we need some games to play. This girl is someone I don't know extremely well, but we are intent on embarrassing her. Give me some help!

Yeah, so it turns out that Jury Duty sucks. Who knew? Oh yeah, everyone!

I got summoned to jury duty for today and had high hopes of a quick dismissal. (After all, Joe was home by 11 when this happened to him in the fall AND no one wants someone on their jury with a public lawyer in their fam, like my bro in law Jerry is.) So after they called 17 groups to go to courts for questioning ahead of me, I was beginning to lose heart. At 11 they told us to go on break and at 11:30 the last court would let us know if we were needed. If not, we would be dismissed. SWEET! 11:30 came and went with no call from the court. Finally, at about 12:05 they called and said...send them to lunch, we'll call back at 1:30. What??? So all alone, I went to lunch, rescheduled my appointment at the bodyshop for my crushed car AND my rental car agreement stuff. Went back. 1:30 came and went. Then at almost 2:00 we found out they needed a jury. So they layed out all the questionaires and started calling us. Number 26...Bethany Varney. NOOOOOOO!!! Yeah, gets worse. Your court is blah blah blah. Your judge wants you to report at 8:45 TOMORROW. Yeah, have to go back TOMORROW! Can you believe that? I did nothing but sit and listen to other names get called and then get told, "Oh yeah, come back tomorrow and do this again." At least tomorrow I get paid $40 as opposed to today's $6. It's aggrevating. Especially when I have to find a sub and prepare stuff for one. So I went to school from there for an hour and now am finally home.
