WAS SO MUCH FUN! Okay, for those of you who don't know, the Outer Banks are essentially a string of islands in North Carolina. We stayed in Nags Head, which is right by Kitty Hawk where the Wright brothers flew their little plane! It was cool! Okay, I'm a nerd, I know. We drove by the place where they flew the plane! We didn't go sight seeing while we were there because we were too busy laying on the beach acting like BUMS the entire time. Seriously, we went to eat and went to the beach and that is about it. It was wonderful. And being lulled to sleep every night by the sound of the ocean.... oh my gosh it was so great. I highly recommend. It'll cure anyone's insomnia I bet. We lucked out because the beach right outside our hotel was not super crowded, so we got a good spot each day. It didn't rain one time the whole time. I tried lobster, crab, tuna, and mahi-mahi while we were there. Those of you who know me well will know that this is a really big deal. I am just now trying out seafood because I was always too chicken before. I really liked all of it except the mahi-mahi was a little strange.
Unfortunately, I received some bad news when I got home: my sister doesn't get to come live with me for the month of August. I am currently very pissed off at Georgetown because they accepted too many people for rotations so they couldn't accept my sister. It sucks. Obviously they don't understand that she is going to be a world famous surgeon some day and they would have been lucky to be able to say she did one of her rotations there while she was still a student. We were really excited about it too. The pricks ruined our plans. :( So I guess instead we are going to figure out a time when she can just come to visit and party with me. Hopefully it will be soon.
On a final note, I would like to say that I witnessed a CRAZY person today. I was driving home from the bank, stopped at a red light. This guy got out of his car and pounded on the driver's side window of the chick that was in the car behind me. Then he started screaming, I am assuming obscenities (my window was up because it is hotter than hades here), and flailing his little crazy-man arms around. I was seriously shocked and it scared the crap out of me. People need to chill out.

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it: "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."
The Lord replied: "My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

Three couples went in to see the minister to see how to become members of his church. The minister said that they would have to go without sex for two weeks and then come back and tell him how it went.
The first couple was retired, the second couple was middle-aged and the final couple was newlywed.
Two weeks went by, and the couples returned to the minister. The retired couple said it was no problem at all. The middle-aged couple said it was tough for the first week, but after that, it was no problem. The newlyweds said it was fine until she dropped the can of paint.
"Can of PAINT!" exclaimed the minister.
"Yeah," said the newlywed man. "She dropped the can and when she bent over to pick it up I had to have her right there and then. Lust took over."
The minister just shook his head and said that they were not welcome in the church.
"That's okay," said the man. "We're not welcome in Home Depot either."
