Wishing myself well

Day number three of being a miserable sicky. When I woke up this morning and my incapacitating sore throat was gone I could have jumped for joy (no more liquid diet!) but it has been replaced with a constantly runny nose, an obnoxious cough and of course a splitting headache. Let's just say, I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. Stupid viral infections! -mmg

Just another resume booster

Yes, it is true. Our wonderful kitty, Olive the great, is a winner! Although she did not come in first, (stupid beer--fridge kitty) she has been glorified by both the Humane Society of Missouri AND the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. There is some confusion as to whether she came is second, as I was told by the Humane Society spokes woman, or third. The Post has her has the second place winner, but the HS has her listed in third. Either way our kitty is going places and impressing people! So check the websites out.

The "New" Busch

Kev and I, along with the rest of the G family toured the new Busch tonight. Although we were sad to see the "old" Busch go, the new stadium is really cool. We took a ton of pictures (119 to be exact) and we thought we would post some of the best of them. Enjoy and Go Cards!
The "Redbirds" on the ends of the seats. This one looks a little shifty!!
The G Family, and no, they are not really behind bars!
The seat numbers on the new seats. They are crazy cool!

The view of the arch from inside the stadium.

This is the north-west gate, which is not yet finished.

Finally Famous after all these years

It is official... I am a winner! And I have the second place win in a photo contest to prove it! Ok, so I didn't win first place, (and I still don't know who the actual winner was) BUT I will be featured in the Worlds Fair Pavillion in Forest Park during the Humane Society's Bark in the Park event. I might even get some press in the Saturday column "The Tail End." (Which I might add is not most people's favorite end of any animal... ewwww.)

We will keep you posted as I build my resume and win the hearts of thousands.

Love, Olive

Feeling better... almost

I think I can say, with 99.999% accuracy that our readership level is at 5 readers now. We are really making some huge waves with this blog! So for the 5 of you, here is my "comps" update!

My exam went well... I think. I will get the results back after next Monday so we will see if my overall impression (that I did as well as I could under the circumstances with the information that I had) is the same as my three committee members. (I have a feeling it won't be.) I will keep y'all posted on my slow crawl towards commencement. Only one oral defense, two 20pg research papers, a final exam and two public speaking classes to wrap up left.

Ok, I am now officially stressed out.
