Wheels!

This weekend, Heidi, Alex and I went to a roller derby. It was way fun! I bought a pair of roller skates so I could maybe be as cool as they are. I went skating for the first time tonight, and did not fall. Mission accomplished. I didn't think it was going to be exercise, though, but when I was done, I was sweaty and piggy-pink! Cool! I worked out and didn't even notice. I think I can do this.

I found out that I am officially a UW student, with a student number and everything! This move has worked out better than I could have imagined. It's pretty bomb. So school starts Sept 24th, and I'll just be worked at my super-rad job between now and then.

Work rocks. I'm assembling watercards, which are plastic cards with filters built into them, whih collect targeted radioactive elements from water. The water is pumped through them with a hand pump to create a sample that can be tested for radiation concentration. It's pretty cool, but it's also kind of funny how primitive the cards seem while I'm assembling them. It's fun.

So, Ollie seems to be doing okay. I was wondering whether he would be sad Chelsea is gone, and I think he misses her a little. I've been spoiling him with treats and toys so that he can stay busy (and fat), but it's not the same, that's for sure. I'm not either, so I'm not suprised.

Anyway, things are pretty good. Ready for another week of work and hanging out... and skating!

Congrats on the skating! Can I come with you sometime? I know rollerblades are way lamer, but I can wear a hip outfit, maybe with a fannypack and a skort!

Of course! When are you going to come and get your blades? I think I'm gonna go tonight. Greenlake or Magnuson, I haven't decided.

I'll meet you for a skate-date at Green Lake on Thursday if it's sunny and you are down. XD
