Texting may also be taking a toll on teenagers’ thumbs. Annie Wagner, 15, a ninth-grade honor student in Bethesda, Md., used to text on her tiny LG phone as fast as she typed on a regular keyboard. A few months ago, she noticed a painful cramping in her thumbs. (Lately, she has been using the iPhone she got for her 15th birthday, and she says texting is slower and less painful.)

and to end the excursion Auburn-style, LA and I made a quick stop in Pita Pit for the train ride home. I forgot how much I loved this place...
Philly, I can't wait to go back...hopefully for longer next time!

Things to do while in Philly:
- EAT EAT EAT! Philly cheesesteaks at famous Pats or Genos
- Constitution Hall (with Liberty Bell)
- Rittenhouse SquareCity Hall and the LOVE sign
- Philadelphia Art Museum (do the Rocky run up the stairs culminating in victory fist pumps in the air)
- and of course, pretend to be Julie Lee for a day and enjoy the institute of higher learning at the University of Pennsylvania, the first university in America
And I just found out Betsy Ross's house is in Philly too! Only 3 more days... and counting!

Today, I was planning on meeting my friend at the mall. She came late, and I was in the dressing room trying on a few things. When I came out to meet her, she looked at me oddly and said, "You shouldn't buy that, it looks terrible on you." Those were the clothes I came in.

- Meat on a stick, Pork
- Blooming Onion, with all the sauce you could want
- A bag of fried oreos, with plenty of powdered sugar to spare
(yes, this is the most unflattering picture ever... but it was taken for the purpose of noting the extreme enjoyment of eating a fried oreo, which I think it clearly depicts, so I felt obligated to put it up!)

Arizona! Even though it might be 120 degrees, I want to visit that desert state so bad to see Cay & Dave and their cute little abode out there!

This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise everdelivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to NewYork. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.
The people of Mexico who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerlyawaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was sogreat, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they stillobserve to this day. The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May5th, and is known of course as "Sinko de Mayo".
Thanks for this story, Anna Curl!!

Me: Hey McKay!
McKay: Hey Aunt Perryn! I miiiiiss you (in a sad, nasaly little girl voice).
Me: I miss you too, McKay.
McKay: Aunt Perryn, I don't even remember what you look like...
Me: Yes you do McKay! I have blond hair and I look like your daddy.
McKay: You don't look like my daddy. I can't even remember what you look like.
