forgot to take pics, but i remember what i was doing. jason's brother was in town for a conference, so we helped get him addicted to the tv show bones. i love the way the characters interact with each other. the show's funny, heartwarming, frightening and suspenseful all in one.
i went over to autumns after work to hang out, eat some pizza and watch some bball. almost every photo of penny is blurry b/c she moves way to fast. the best was when she ran at the couch full speed and tried to leap up onto it, only to slam into the front of the couch. and she did that over and over and over. lol.

all basketball season, i patiently waited for the uw/iu home game. and of course it was the last home game of the season; a season which iu had been playing horribly. i still cheered on my hoosiers and at one point got really excited that i heard other people clapping. i looked around quickly to see my fellow hoosier fans, only to realize that the people clapping were the players on the iu bench. i guess that tells you how many iu fans were in the kohl center that night.... above is a pic of autumn in her courtside seat.
there's this great laotian restaurant right by the barrymore theatre. we tried it for the first time and loved the food. the coloring in the place was neat and the picture behind jason had vivid colored of parasoles. after dinner, jason and i saw slumdog millionaire. great flick but gut wrenching in parts.
jason and i spent a lot of time watching movies this week. we started off the week with how to lose friends and alienate people - great movie. on this particular day we watched quarantine - not so great a movie. at least the part i watched while peering through my fingers was slightly entertaining.
bree's family was in town so her sister, meg, and i spent the day watching movies. and not just any movies, all three high school musicals. meg's knowledge of every song lyric and dance routine was quite impressive. i'm not going to lie. that day i became a zach efron fan. p.s. happy bday jon!

craig at his finest. :) jas and i went to the friday night fish fry with the volleyball gang. the food was really tasty, and they had german chocolate cake for dessert. here's craig shoveling in some more food. at least the guys didn't have a fish eating contest and get us shunned from the friday night fish fry.
earlier in the day, bree and i met up for coffee and she introduced me to bananagrams. it's kind of like scrabble but without the board. well, i finished none of the work i needed to get done, but instead lost in bananagrams over and over to bree. so, i picked myself up a game and planned with jason later that night. i lost but he cheated. wheed is not a word!
mom and dad came down for the badger hockey game, which turned out to be the very worst hockey game i have ever seen. although when the first goal was the wisconsin goalie practically scoring on himself, how high of expectiations could you really have? before the game, we ate mussels at le chardonnay which were amazing! at least the night started off well!
mcfarland girls big game against columbus. the winner of this game would be the conference champs. i met up with jeannie and greg to watch the game, which turned out to be quite intense. the girls fought through two overtimes but ended up succumbing to defeat in the end.
