I'm glad you mentioned that. Just this week I was wondering if it is as big a deal on the Texas side as it is in Oklahoma. I know folks who go down there even if they don't have tickets.

I kind of feel bad for Mack Brown. He is a good coach and I don't want him to go out like this. That being said I'm still cheering for the Sooners like crazy!

Thank you. I found it too sweet as I don't normally like my coffee sweet but if I order it next time, I would also take a glass of water by the side to sip time to time. :]

CDs can normally be bought in the venues of the concerts, and I guess they are also sold in random little shops around Ukraine but they're not available worldwide or in supermarkets, etc.

Good evening everyone! I bet your day was great as usual. :] I met my university program director so she had approved equivalent courses taught in AUC (Amsterdam University College). I will get my equivalent university credits here if I go abroad which is great! I wrote my CV and I'm almost done with my personal statement/letter of motivation. I should get my reference by next Monday, and application form is easy to fill in so somehow I'm almost done with documentation! I still need passport photographs but I hope to get them tomorrow. I'm now thinking of taking some medicine (although I normally never do that) because I'm feeling sick in my stomach. I had some cake earlier today because my course mate has a birthday. Normally smart people don't eat such things which, they know, make them feel sick afterwards, and yes, I have not been smart person today. Anyway, enough complains. :] Hope everyone is having a nice evening! xx

I have a stress fracture of one of the metatarsal bones. So for the next 4 to 6 weeks I get to wear some fancy new footwear and use Crutches. Which I hate and probably won't use. I'll just use a cane to keep some of the weight off of it. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

So glad you finally went! Please follow doctors orders!! Pretty please!!

Take care, buddy!!

Beautiful ornament, CAH!!

What a wonderful way to spend the day, we have yet to head out to our pumpkin patch and get some pumpkins.
