On the Frustrations of Labor Day

So...all those promises I made to myself and all of you about daily posts. Yeah, those went well. I apologize for missing both Friday and Saturday. I have chalked it up to a combination of being very busy and using my inability to find my camera cord as a reason to justify not putting anything new up here.

Now had you asked me yesterday how excited I was to have a three day weekend after the first week of class I would have responded in a series of ecstatic chirps and quasi-linguistic jolts of happiness. Today, as you may have ascertained, not so much. I had a wonderful master plan today to go the girls soccer game at 12:30 then study until dinner in the library, but, as luck would have it, the library is closed today and tomorrow. So I am sitting outside the Alumni Memorial Union (which is also closed) typing on the blog and watching people try to open the locked doors and walk away frustrated. It's almost tempting to let them know that things are closed, but allowing them to feel the same frustration I am is somewhat comforting. Chalk it up to Schadenfreude I guess.

In other news, I did go to that soccer game today. Marquette beat Samford 2-0 to go to three wins, no losses on the season. The student section, called the "Birdcage," is truly frightening on Sunday afternoons. I can't imagine anything more intimidating to opposing teams than a handful of hungover college students who have come out to tan and caught a soccer game on accident. I didn't do much cheering as my voice is still feeling the effects of 5 sporting events in 3 days. Yesterday I could barely talk, then went to the evening volleyball game and lost whatever sound I had managed to muster earlier that day.

So there is your quick recap of this weekend up to this point. Hopefully I can get some pictures up on this bad boy soon...just need to search the room a little harder for that cord. Also, during the course of this week look for a significant sexyifaction of the blog, including some graphics and new sections. I'm hoping to find the time some evening to really juice it up. Until next time...
