it's a football saturday

fun notes as i take a moment to post in between social outings today:

*we are now the proud owners of a 42' HDTV that is sitting happily above our fireplace. check out justin's website for more details and my photos to see the newest member of the family. though it has proven quite popular for football games and movies, this week i used it for something i knew i would love to see in high defintion--DCI finals on ESPN2. awesome, awesome, awesome. congrats to carolina crown for placing in the top 6 for the first time!

*to ECU for a fabulous showing at virginia tech last week--a highly publicized game that gave our school some wonderful positive publicity. and today, as we take on carolina at home for a sold out crowd, i will unfortunately have to watch it on tv somewhere around town. i'll be cheering on my pirates, though! (heels, wait til basketball season. then i'll put on my carolina blue.)

*to seeing my lovely linda and having a great lunch at mcalister's where we sat a couple of feet away from dave mirra and his wife. he was at the table next to us on the patio, and it was after a couple of fans came up to say hello that we realized we were sitting next to one of the most famous bmx bikers in the world. so cool.

*i am three weeks into the school year and taking on so many new projects. getting student government started up, planning camp cheerio, organizing a trip to busch gardens for the upper schoolers, trying to figure out what is and is not my responsibility, and getting to know our new teachers better. fall festival is coming up soon, as well, and i cannot wait for it to start to feel like autumn.

*finding the live music scene in greenville. something justin and i have tried to get into over the past couple of weeks. we took the opportunity to check out courtyard tavern's live music on the patio last sunday night for labor day weekend, and then last night we had an early dinner at wimpie's where a band was playing and then went to the patio at moe's for some more live music. there are some great bands playing around greenville if you take the effort to go find them.

that's it for now. go pirates! arrrrrrgh!
