Friday we went to see Up in theaters. Didn't get to go in 3D because it was sold out, but 2D was just as good. It's a great movie. Go see it. (Unless you're KV, then don't, because it's a cartoon...)
Saturday morning went to a potluck breakfast for tutoring and recapped the year. See previous post with azalea. (Chuck Bass wins. And not by default. Because it's an amazing name for an amazing plant).
Saturday afternoon we went to a wedding out in Litchfield. It was lots of fun. Apparently most MN weddings (or is it just ones in Nick's family?) involve hula hooping at dances. Hmm. Before we got to the wedding, we stopped to see the world's biggest ball of twine* Didn't know it at the time, but apparently there's a Weird Al song all about it.Here we are at the big ball of twine. It's a little difficult to demonstrate the ball of twine and take a self portrait. It's there in the background. Plus, it was a good excuse to take a picture.
Today was chill. Just hung out, got caught up on some sleep. Watched Dan in Real Life. It's so good. So glad friends have started giving good movie recommendations.
That's it. Happy "June is tomorrow already?!"
*Apparently, it's the world's largest ball of twine "made by one man." A whole town in Kansas made a bigger one, but it was a group collaboration.

Also, I need a name for the azalea. Can't decide if it's a he or she. The best I came up with was Leah the Azalea. Corny, I know. That's why I need your help! Winner will be announced when a good name is recommended!

The article comes from a blog/site called Tomato Nation, and it's called "25 and Over." 20 hard realities about how you should act when you turn 25.
Okay, so I'm only 23 going on 24, so I like that I don't do all of these and supposedly can get away with them for another year-ish. But the blog made me smile at how harsh and true it was. Maybe everything they say isn't quite legitimate, but I'll share with you anyway:
4. Develop a physical awareness of your surroundings. As children, we live in our own heads, bonking into things, gnawing on twigs, emitting random squawks because we don't know how to talk yet. Then, we enter nursery school. You, having graduated college or reached a similar age to that of the college graduate, need to learn to sense others and get out of their way. Walk single file. Don't blather loudly in public spaces. Give up your seat to those with disabilities or who are struggling with small children. Take your headphones off while interacting with clerks and passersby. Do not walk along and then stop suddenly. It is not just you on the street; account for that fact.
8. Do not share the crazy dream you had last night with anyone but your mental wellness professional. Nobody cares. People who starred in the dream may care, but confine your synopsis to ten words or fewer.

Matt Nathanson, by the way, had the best stage presence and was the funniest by far. And good. All I have to say is, if you can cut to playing "Jessie's Girl" in the middle of one of your own songs - and then cut back - you are amazing.
It was a good time. Super fun. Great company. Couldn't have had a better night. Oh, and I love Flo Rida. Love. Him.

More than good times were had by all, plus, who wouldn't want to eat these fantastic GG cakes?

But I'm stuck. I haven't come up with anything fantastic of late, so for the past week or two, it's been: If you could be any one place right now, where would the be?
Help me out, friends - what are some spectacular, thought-provoking questions that people should answer on my voicemail? (And it should probably be suitable for all ages/types...)
