21st Birthday

     Well it was Friday, May 12th, and my boyfriend, Adam, and I drove over to Stevens Point to celebrate my 21st birthday.  We left Greenbay around 9:00PM; drove to New London, (arrived at 10:00PM) so he could take a shower and pack his bag.  We didn’t arrive to my friend Jessi’s apartment untill 11:30 PM.  Yeah, Adam and I were definately running late.  As soon as we arrived at the apartment, I had to change and get ready to party.  Adam had also made me a glass of fruit juice and vodka to drink, and my friends decided to make me drink a bottle of Baccardi Raz. befor we hit the bars at Midnight.
     It was about 11:55PM and was time to hit the bars. The first bar we went to was called Partner’s.   Luckly Adam snuck passed the bouncer because he’s only 19.  OOopps .  Oh well, anyways, right away I took a shot of Cherry Cheese Cake and my friend Dana, bought me a glass of Pine-apple vodka.  That didn’t take me long to drink, pluse Adam was taking sips out of it.  After the pine-apple vodka was gone, Jessi bought me a glass of Long Island Iced Tea.  Now that was some good stuff.  After being at Partner’s for about an hour, we took Adam and Tony (Jessi’s boyfriend) back to the apartments.  Adam couldn’t go with because the bars downtown Stevens Point card, and Tony didn’t want to to because he had to leave early in the morning to go back to Stout for graduation. 
     The second bar we went to was The Martini Bar.  I don’t remember what the martini was called that I had, but it was really good.  It tasted like it had a hint of coconut and some fruit.  Mike, another friend of mine, was also drinking the same thing, but he didn’t want his, so I drank it…quickly.  Also at the Martinii bar, I saw my friend Jeff that I haven’t seen in about a year. 
      After the Martinii bar, we went to another bar.  I don’t remember what the name was, but anywho, my friends and I took a seat at the bar.  Well guess what the free shot was for birthday people…Bacardii 151.  Yeah, exactly.  Dana’s bref explanation of the shot Bacardii 151 to me went something like this, "Joanna, after this shot, you are gonna be so fucked up that you will not remember from here on."  I wanted to take the shot as soon as the lady gave it to me, but Dana and Jessi wouldn’t let me.  I had to wait for the chaser.  Thank God I did.  The Bacardii 151 burned as hell down my throat.  I totally chugged the chaser. 
     Well after that, it was already about 2:15AM, and Jessi and Dana need to get back home because they had to work in the morning.  I was totally tipsy. Jessi had to help me walk back to the car.  At the apartment, there waited my sweetie.  He had to take care of my drunk–ass.  He changed me into my pajama’s, and held my hair when I threw up.  Now that’s a gentalman.  LOL.  He also helped me into bed and gave me some water to drink.  Now this is a birthday I am never going to forget.

Camping Trip 2006

 Ok, Jessi and I are planning on another camping trip this year!!  We are planning on going to Penninsula State Park instead of J.W Well’s because Penninsula would be way cheaper.  The only diffrence is that we would be in either tents or campers instead of being in a cabin, but hey, at least we know we for sure wont get locked out–HAHAH… 
Well Penninsula is about an hour and a half north (In Door County if I remember right or not), but if anyone has any questions feel free to ask me or Jessi. 
We want to start planning now to make sure we have enough people and to start making reservations.  We are thinking about going sometime in late June, but that all depends on what you guys think…so please give us some feedback.  And we are also thinking about staying for 4 nights instead of just 2 nights–so that’ll give us some extra fun!!

R.I.P. Erwin F. Cottrell

Well this whole week as been  really rough.  My friend that graduated with me in high school died early Monday morning.   His name is Erwin Floyd Cottrell.  He was and awesome person.  Erwin touched many lives and he was freinds with everyone.  It’s just too bad he had to go, but we all know that he is in a safer place and will always be watching over us. 
Erwin’s wake was held on Wednesday evening between 6-8 PM at Ryan’s Funeral Home.  Erwin’s funeral broke the record of the amount of people showed up, and I am not surprised.  He disereved to have that many people show up.  I hope that everyone who reads this takes a moment of silence in reguards of Erwin F. Cottrell.  Thank you all so much for your support.  Erwin we all love you so much.  We will not forget you.  Soon we all will reunite.

BOOoo. Well school started for me on August 18th.  Fun, Fun…  I’m taking Sociology, Chemistry, Developmental Psychology, Economy, and Anatomy.  So this Semester is going to be pretty busy. 
     But so far so good.  I like the teachers I have.  They seem to be outgoing and fun.   There are three days during the week i get to sleep in so I’m excited about that.  The only thing that sucks is that I probably won’t have anything to do during the evening.  Oh well…i’ll manage–I probably could use the time to study or what not.  Well I’ll keep you guys up to date as school goes on.

Flag Football

My friend Jason that I work with in the Festival Bakery Dept. had an idea to have a flag football game with just the bakery team.  Well that’s just what happened today.  I played Flag football and my team dominated. That’s Right!! 
There were lot’s of food…oh yeah, MMmm food! 
It was a lot of fun, we also had a water fight at half time of our game.  I got soaked.  Of course the boys all pitched in to get me!  Oh well, it was fun, but the weather was very warm.  Eventually it cooled off and there was a nice breeze.
