Alright, so you all know I'm a fairly big Beatles fan, right? I totally forgot that today is Paul McCartney's 64th birthday! I didn't even think about it until I was at church and saw what the day was. Anybody ever heard the song "When I'm 64" from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band? It's only one of my favs.
Shorty-K supposedly went to the Beatles museum in Liverpool yesterday and if he didn't, I'm going to have to kick his little behind, because I just read that the museum had a festival to celebrate Paul's turning 64. I wish I'd gone on the trip now. Totally. I mean, Paul will only have one 64th birthday and it was TODAY. I could have gone to England and visited that museum this weekend. Gosh. I'm a little pissed at myself right now, but it's okay.
Yeah I went to church this morning and I'm still recovering from the headache. They had the music WAY TOO LOUD and I mean, I'm not old yet, but even I thought the music was too loud. I had to cover my ears for a while there and I still got a headache. The message was good though. I really like the guy that came to preach--he was an alcoholic and I think he may have been in a gang at some point. He's probably in his 60s now (maybe he's 64?) but anyway, he's really funny and down-to-earth, and if you ever start feeling like a terrible sinner, he's there to remind you that he's done worse, so you can't be that bad.
I really don't want to clean out my birds' cage. It's pretty gross. However, I feel I must take one for the team and clean it out before we leave so Dad doesn't have to. And also I'm a little afraid that he'd use soap to clean it out, and Debbie told me that is a no-no.
Speaking of Dad, today is father's day! Yet another thing I pretty much forgot about. I got my dad a small gift, but I think I'll put some cash in a card for him because I'm not sure what he would like that would actually be in my price range. I'm not sure if I'll update any more before the trip or not. I have quite a bit to do--including finishing packing--and as always, I'm still studying for the GRE. But if I don't see you all before, I'll just let you know I won't be updating for a while. Peace out!
happy turkey day
