Homecoming and Beyond

Wow! I can't believe it is already Thursday. This has been a long and tiring week, but before i get into that...


So... Homecoming weekend was a blast. We had the typical big football game, but the dance that is normally associated with homecoming weekends was held the weekend before. I don't know why they do that exactly. Oh well. Any whooo, back to the events. We had the game and we shutout Locke Haven, which was a huge win. After we headed to Garvey Park where they had a free BBQ going on, which was delicious. They had four inflatables: a maze, dino jump, the bungee cord one where it rips you backwards, and a tug-of-war where you had to try and get the football into your basket. They also had karaoke, a petting zoo (yep, you heard that right), caricature drawings, corn hole, and various contests.

Of course I went through the petting zoo and the inflatables. We sang Sweet Home Alabama while inhaling helium balloons (if I can get the recording posted we sound like chipmunks) and I participated in the whip cream pie contest were you had to stick your head in the pie and find the gum. The first person to blow a bubble won, right? Nope. That was how it was supposed to work, but when we started chewing the gum it just disintegrated into a syrupy liquid. So then we had to take the wrappers of the double bubble and then blow a bubble. Needless to say I lost. :-(

Overall Homecoming was AWESOME and if it wasn't I'd say so. The weather cooperated and we had a fun day. The biggest bummer was getting back into the week after having that much fun all weekend. This week has been long and tiring, but its Thursday and the weekend is near. Plus, I hear that there will be a mechanical bull in the union on Friday night... Could be fun!

Thanks for reading,
