"feeling good was good enough for me"

i'm in pittsburgh for the next few days. well until november actually. i'm so excited though, because the weather is really chilly, and my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is a weekend in texas with cayce!

every week i met close to 10 new people and have enough time to get to know them on a personal level. typically i love meeting new people and getting to know them, but i'm feeling like my stories are getting really canned, because i always get asked the same questions. how long have you been doing this? how did you get started? where are you from? who is your operator? blah blah.

is it weird that i think it's inappropriate for people to ask about your family during the first five minutes of conversation? i love my family. i have an interesting family, but you will meet them when i feel like you're ready to meet them. through stories and in real life.

also i was told tonight that i wouldn't understand football in the north because they are so die hard. i'm from texas, where the high schools have astroturf and jumbo trans. i understand football plenty. what i don't understand is why you'd build a stadium in the north with no top over it when you know that without fail the weather will be sub zero during the season. yankees i may not know, but football! football i know!

ok enough complaining from me. this is an example of too much infomation being shared on our first encounter. today when i was playing the get to know you game with this girl that was asking me if i had any brothers or sisters i was getting so tired and couldn't quit yawning. so i finally said, "i am soooooooooo tired, and i'm not sure why!" and she said, "i'm so tired, but it's because i have PMS." i can barely remember your name...please don't make me remember your cycle.
