Thursday Ten: Good Causes Lead Me To Golf Courses Edition

1. As some of you know, last Tuesday would have been the birthday of my college roommate who died of cystic fibrosis several years ago. It’s an ugly disease, and brutal and every year around this time, I miss her.

2. This leads to seeing someone from a local chapter of CFF (Cystic Fibrosis Foundation) asking for volunteers for a golf outing today in west Michigan. I was able to work my schedule around it and spent the day selling 50/50 raffle tickets at the first hole. I can’t think of a better way to spend my day. What an amazing group, an amazing group of people. I am thrilled to have been able to give my time, and look forward to staying involved.

3. Music – I have had an oldie stuck in my head for days: “Don’t Walk Away” by Jade. Remember this song? It screams high school for me. I love it. So, of course, I had to redownload it. Also – do you remember Shai? Yeah. Kicking it old school this week, I suppose.

4. Hey- just a few more days til Chris Mann’s EP comes out on August 11. I ran into him again in Chicago and fortunately didn’t reprise my total social ineptitude that I displayed in Nashville. He’s a nice guy and I love his voice… so, be sure to check him out on Tuesday.

5. I am still working on “Outside” by Staind in guitar. And actually… it’s not going too badly. Yay!

6. My sister’s wedding is in 59 days. HOLY COW. I picked up my dress the other day and now I need to find someone to alter it pronto… or my boobs need to grow super fast. It fits darn near everywhere else. It’s somewhat sad, and by sad I mean: LIFE ISN’T FAIR!

7. I also learned a new chord in guitar tonight – F#m – and it’s the first chord I’ve learned so far that I’ve needed to use my left thumb and it feels completely awkward. Just when you think you get use to all the weird whacky ways you need to tweak your fingers to make things “go” – another funktastic one gets tossed into the mix. Oy.

8. Fun time waster of the week? ColorSplash for the iPhone. Suuuuuuper neat. It’s about $2. Give it a whirl.

9. The iPhone update yesterday borked my phone and restored original settings. {sad face} I heard of a few other people who had the same experience. No fun, Apple. I had to spend a whole twenty seconds picking new wallpaper. My life will never be the same again. <insert stompy feet here>

10. I have had a craving for two days for homemade ice cream sandwiches – soft peanut butter cookies with vanilla bean ice cream in the middle. Need to make that happen. Soonish.
