I'm finally doing it. I've always wondered what it would be like to eat exactly what the experts say you should eat: all the fruits, all the vegetables, all the not potato chips. And this week, I'm doing it.

Also, I've often had a goal to gain some weight. Girth has never been one of my strong points. So, in conjunction with the idea of healthy eating, I've also decided to increase my eating. I've planned out a daily 3000 calorie diet for each day this week:

After doing it for one day... I'm sick of eating. I'm most surprised by the quantity of fruits and vegetables I've got to eat. A cup and a half of carrots is a lot of carrots!

I'll let you know how the week turns out.

And Richard&Kelli were married this weekend! Their wedding was great... and they're married. It was very fun. Here's some pictures:

Dum da doo da da da dat dat dum

I failed my Women's Conference, candy counter, picture-taking mission. Every time I was around the counter... it just wasn't busy enough. I meandered through the bookstore for a while. I even stood for a while on the phone with my mom trying to look inconspicuous. But to no avail -- I'm left with only my mental picture of myriad mothers clamoring for chocolate covered cinnamon bears and "just a little" fudge.

In other news, the bongos have returned. Last year, the bongos were the staple bane of studying during finals. This year they waited (thankfully) until after finals before coming out to play. (Though I actually did better on last year's finals...)

If you haven't played them, you're welcome to come over. It's a little like Guitar Hero -- but with four people, and a lot more violent smacking.

And if one set of bongos isn't enough...

And here's some of the flowers on campus:
