Hey Everyone.

On June 16th I will be running in the Race for the Cure downtown for the
second year. This race raises money for breast cancer research and the
Susan G. Komen Foundation. This is very near and dear to my heart
because one of my co-workers lost her fight with breast cancer in
Feburary 2006.

I know that you get alot of people asking for donations for different
things but if you could even just give $5 that is $5 more than what the
Foundation had before you donated. I have set up the following website
for you to donate online. It is a safe and secure website so do not
hesitate to use it.


Thank you for your support. Maybe one day soon, I won't have to ask you
for donations to this cause because we will find a cure. You could be
apart of that.

Please forward this email to as many people as you can to encourage them
to donate as well!


All donations will be processed via ActiveGiving's secure credit card
processing services.

I forget when words were only words: my iPod, my greatest possession

So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button

This is out of 428 songs:

First Day At School: "One Headlight"--The Wallflowers

So your's truly lasted 25 SECONDS ON THE MECHANICAL BULL!!! ;)

As our last dinner event of the week, they had a mechanical bull, mechanical calf roping, you could brand your own keychain, and a guy riding a horse around playing Kenny Rogers, "The Gambler" amongst other country classics. And of course 3 hours of free drinks. It was by far the best nite here.

But I am ready to come home. Ready for the Tigers to STOP SUCKING. Ready to be with my friends! Ready to be in my own bed!

But most importantly, I am ready to get my act together and get my life straightened out. Its about time I started doing the things I told myself was important for me to do. Its about time to think of me and do what is best for me.

24 more hours and I will be home, in Michigan, where I belong.

The countdown begins.

I really kinda hate Arizona.

Don't get me wrong, its nice not to have to think of 30 degree temps in late October, but I'd rather have that then what I have now.

I can't sleep.

The Tex-Mex food is raging a war with my stomach (so I am skipping lunch as we speak).

Watching the Tigers game in the Red Horse Saloon with my co-workers isn't the same as watching the game at 3 Nicks or Scott's apartment with all of you.

I want to come home.

And I want to come home now.

I hate Arizona right now.

Someone come and take me home.

I want to be in my own bed.

I want to be with my friends.

I want to be in my office.

Hell, I'd rather be studying for the CPA exam. And we all know how much I "love" doing that.

I'd rather be anywhere else doing anything else but being here.

I cannot believe it has been three years since Coach Bob passed away.

I will NEVER forget you. You are in my heart always.

In case you haven't heard.....A Meijer store in Southgate is closed because of a hazmat situation. The store was evacuated around 1:00 a.m. on Monday morning when a chemical spill was discovered in one of the aisles with pool supplies. Eight staff members were treated and released at a local hospital The store, which is located on Fort Street , remains closed while hazmat crews investigate

Yes this is my mom's store. But she works days now and doesn't have to go in until 9am, so no, she wasn't in the store when it happened. 2 of my mom's friend, however, were taken to the hospital for precautionary measures. The have since been released, my mom had breakfast with one this morning before heading home. My mom can't go back to work until further notice, which is nice cuz she hasn't fully adjusted to working days yet and hasn't been sleeping. Plus she has tomorrow off for her birthday.

Thanks to those who showed concern and asked about her.

Barry Melrose has a weekly column called the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly on espn.com and here is this weeks highlights:


One scary thought for the opposition is how well Steve Yzerman is playing right now. The Detroit Red Wings captain helped his team lock up the Presidents' Trophy this week, and we haven't seen Yzerman play this well in a while. I think he's finally healthy and has finally pulled everything together in his game (remember, he has had some major surgeries and major knee injuries).

Yzerman is one of the smartest hockey players I've ever seen. I think every hockey fan wants to see Stevie Y carry the Stanley Cup in June in what could be his last NHL game. Will he return next season regardless? I don't know. But the fan in me hopes not, only because I don't want to see Yzerman face a Dave Andreychuk kind of situation where he's put on waivers. Ray Bourque had the best exit, carrying the Cup on this way out. Any of us would love to have that ending on our résumé.

All I can say is THANK YOU! It's about time people give props to the Captain. What a way to go out, with a bang!
