My family will be so proud...

I almost forgot about the most important thing I learned from my summer job. I learned how to JUGGLE! My family is very excited to see me in action, so I will post a little preview here. Hopefully it works. And don't worry-I'm still practicing. Someday I will have my own traveling show!

(Sorry it's sideways. I blame Rachel! :D)

Back in Boise...

|
I finally made it back to Boise, and this time, I'm here to stay for a while. At least two or three weeks! :) The drive home wasn't too bad, especially after I somehow managed to meet up with Mike and Brittany in Pendleton as they were driving home from Portland. Crazy how that worked out! Last night, Tammie came and helped us pack everything up and then we went to dinner with Rocky and his employee Brent. Rocky owns too many businesses to name, but at this fair he was running the mechanical bull. I got some good tips, so I'll have to try it out again! Rocky has some crazy good stories-he's met Carmen Electra at the Big Boy Toy Expo in LA, his bull was featured in the Carl's Junior ad and in Charlie's Angels, and he just recently bought a giant lemon to sell lemonade out of. Marissa and I are considering driving it around the country for him next summer. And I'm really not kidding.


Anyways, we ate at this restaurant in Spokane called The Onion. Besides the delicious food, we had an awesome waiter who gave us all some super cool buttons that say "No Problem!" on them. Come to find out if someone in your party wants something else not listed on the menu-say French Toast, macaroni and cheese, fish tacos, or even King crab legs, they will go get it for you, NO PROBLEM! How cool is that? If your kids want McDonalds, they'll get it. If you want pizza, they'll call up their favorite delivery guy. All you have to do is pay for what you want, nothing extra. That's my kind of service. If you're ever in Spokane, I highly reccommend it, for both the service and the food! Anyways, here are the last couple of pictures I took.

This is Rachel. She hails from the Bay area in California and just graduated from UC Davis. She's moving to San Diego and will most likely end up managing a MotoCross team. She's FANCY! (Inside joke :D) And yes, we are wearing super cool red vests. I know you're jealous and want your own!This is Marissa Faye, my much younger twin. We really are so much alike, it's scary. I told Tammie that she inherited another daughter. Marissa leaves for OSU in a week and I'm seriously considering going down there for the BSU game even though there aren't any tickets. Anybody else want to go?

Marissa decided that we needed to bust out some champagne to celebrate our last weekend as carnys. So what did we decide to buy? Yep, $4 bottles of Andre. Took me back to my college days. Yuck. Although the blush kind was actually not too bad when we mixed it with orange juice. We hung out at our friend Greg's house (he was sick and in bed, so we actually hung out with Ben, his fellow employee) and watched SuperBad for like the 12th time. It just never gets old. "I'm gettin' that fo sho!"




Now that I'm back to the real world, I have days of laundry to do and lots of sleep to catch up on, but other than that, I just need to get my life in order. I have an 'appointment' with Diane (otherwise known as a lunch date where she will give me lots of wonderful statistics on becoming a teacher) on Friday. I suppose I will look for a job both here and in Idaho Falls. In between that, though, I'm in the mood for a little miniature golfing and trivia. Anyone interested?
