ok, firstly, i made it to north carolina safely – albeit, an hour late due to plane issues in detroit.

secondly, what the hell is a tar heel?  what kind of state mascot is that?  and people make fun of minnesota for paul bunyan.  paul kicks the shit out of tar heels.

cbpicked me up from the airport and we promptly went to to a durham bulls game (well at least the last 2.5 innings as i was so late).  i love outdoor baseball.  i love baseball players.  i love baseball uniforms.  lots of woofy things to look at.

i’ll be with cb until sunday – it’s going to be a very lowkey weekend which i’m looking forward to.  i was pleased that he liked his prezzies from italy (and yes, i know i need to post more pics from my trip).  i got him a print from the same artist i got mine from.  here’s a shot of the one i got cb:

in other news, i was saddened to hear that my good friend kari is resigning her post as director for the red ribbon ride after this july’s 5th annual ride.  kari is one of the most amazing/strong/brilliant people i know and it’s a big loss for the ride.  however, it’s an amazing opportunity for her.  i’m very proud of her.

on sunday, i’ll leave cb’s house and move to a hotel – i’m helping one of our cosmetology schools with a earth day event early next week. 

speaking of earth day- you do know that april 22 is earth day right?  what have you done for the planet lately?

Tar Heel- either comes from the NC infantry sticking in a fight when others retreated— which also comes from the fact that NC produced a lot of tar and resins.

The bulls game was fun- even if we didn’t get my favorite burritos.

My picture is AWESOME. As were my other prezzies.
