Oops, a brain dump

Random thoughts and a little brain dump!

Along with half of the rest of the country, I saw Star Trek this weekend. I'm not a Trekkie. I am a movie buff. I loved it. I loved Chris Pine as Kirk, and Zachary Quinto as Sylar, I mean Spock. And JJ Abrams just plain rocks. It makes me want to see the old series now. And I really hope this is the beginning of a new set of Star Trek movies with this new cast.

I had fun with Misty and Shane at Lumpy's Saturday night watching the soccer game on the big screens. And now Misty and I are planning a soccer blog and website, where I will be able to go completely fangirl on my favorite players.

For what I believe is the first time in my life, I managed to sleep walk during a nap today! (My nocturnal sleepwalking has been well-documented on this blog.) I came home from church early with massive allergies. I took a benadryl, and expected to crash out. I have vague memories of sleeping in my actual bed, but also of going outside to sit in my lawn chair. I also recall dreaming that I was still sneezing, so I took 12 more benadryl. Later, when I woke up from a nearly comatose state on the couch, with no memory of how I got there, I remembered the dream and checked the benadryl. I can't tell how many I took, but its somewhere between 1-3 more than the original one I took. This is why I usually lock up all medications, and secure scissors, knives, markers, and other damaging items when I take sleep inducing drugs. All in all, I slept over 8 hours in the middle of the day, and still can't figure out how a dirty plate got out of the dishwasher and put on a pile of newspapers in the middle of my living room. I also can't figure out how it is I have 2 newspapers. I think I may have driven to the store in my benadryl comatose state. I'm trying not to think too much about that.

How obsessed have I become with soccer? I actually wrote about it on my work blog (Cheap Travel Blog) today too.

Anyone want to go camping in Yellowstone in June with me and Steph?

This is the week of being single on this blog! I am still looking for wonderful people to spotlight and talk about! Who do you nominate??

I'm jealous of my (sister's) horse. Baby Sister and (our) her horse, Streaker, have just moved to Roanoke with my parents. Check out his new digs and tell me that isn't the most beautiful place on earth? Layers and shades of green, red barns, rolling hills, and beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. I am seriously jealous of a horse.


  1. I want to go camping in Yellowstone! Himself, Woodstock and I are supposed to go in June, but I don't know if we will or not. *sigh*

  2. I am jealous of your (sister's) horse! I have never recovered from having to leave my wonderful life in Lancaster, PA and move back to UT. It's beautiful back east not to mention many other pluses!

    Be careful with that benadryl! LOL

  3. Loved Star Trek too and thinking of pursuing the former series too. I was actually able to look at Spock even though I get freaked out by him on Heroes.

    Wow. So, those tv shows are true about people that have the sleepwalking double lives. Amazing!

  4. That's a beautiful picture. I used to do crazy things when I took Ambien.
