My Super Sweet Summer

This weekend I went to Circus Flora with my mom. It was awesome, awesome, awesome. I have always been fascinated by circus families like The Flying Wallendas and Old Worldish clowns like Nino. I love him because he is the way clowns should be: funny, talented and most importantly, not completely f*cking terrifying.

Case in point – this guy:

Before the circus started I was having a great time at the pre-party. I entered a hula hooping contest, and then I embarrassed my mom by doing the electric slide with a juggler and a guy on stilts.

Well then, I was just kicking back and enjoying an ice cream sandwich, when my mom and her friends started laughing. I turned around and saw this:

Yup, that’s the same mime that stalked Jen and I at the Voltron party (it’s at the very end of this entry). I tried to play it off (“Oh, hey dude. Long time no see. You grew a mustache? That’s cool.”), but he kept making that face at me. Eventually my survival instincts kicked in and I did what anyone else would do in my situation: I threw my mom at him.


My best friends are all floating this weekend (a biblical fload can’t stop the party), so I thought I would be bored but it’s been cool. I went to a party for Sara and Dave at Jaime and Adam’s house, and that was really fun. Their daughter is super hilarious and adorable and she has the coolest basement full of toys; I wish Jaime and Adam would adopt me.

Saturday night was a flashlight dance party that I can’t even begin to describe. Okay, I’ll try. It was less like a rave and more like a Drama Club slumber party – lame wine coolers and cheetos included. My KC friends are special brand of bitchin’ that I can’t really put into words. Pandy and I did the Pet Shop Dance and brought the house down.

OMG OMG I forgot to tell you guys, I am now official Myspace friends with my true love Cloud. He is dreamy squared.

The rest of the weekend, I stay up in the apartment just working on my fitness. Jason’s my witness. My coworker loaned me his Wii Fit and it is CRAAAAAAZY. It’s like my Nike Plus – straight out of the future! I love it! I have been dominating the yoga categories and balance games, but Jason is kicking my ass at strength training. It’s so much fun; I need to get one asap.


They found a vein for my dad’s surgery – lots of veins in fact, which is good because he will need more vein transplants in the future. That’s one reason why they want to get his heart in a better condition for the future. It’s a risky surgery for someone like him, but the doctors all seem confident. Most importantly, my dad is not scared at all. So please send prayers if you pray, and I will let you know how that is going.


I walked over to the park this morning and read Camp Camp in it’s entirety, and that officially kicked off summer for me. Last summer was without a doubt the best summer of my life, but I plan on outdoing myself this year.

And I have to say, wearing neon pink shorts and a neon green t-shirt, eating a bomb pop from the ice cream truck and reading a book about summer camp next to a creek was just as sweet as riding my bike to 7-11 for candy last year. Possibly more so. Summer kicks ass.
