Highlight #1 - It's not so much a highlight...just a huge part of our vacation...I'm hugely allergic to something down here...my eyes have been all irritated and allergy-y and it kind of sucks. I'm not a fan. And I've gone through a whole bottle of eye drops. Yuck. Today I've been good though - no allergy eyes. Granted, I didn't leave the room today, but still...
Highlight #2 - Putt-putt is only one of my favorite things in the world. I suck quite a bit at it, but it's always fun. And I don't care that I have bad form - it's only putt-putt...plus, I've been promised that I will be taught how to have correct form...but after the 9th hole.
Highlight #3 - Ripley's Believe It Or Not Aquarium...I really get so much joy from aquariums and zoos, which is interesting considering I hate animals and nature...but considering that I don't have to touch them, I think that makes sense as to why I love them. Also, this jellyfish picture is one of my favorite animal pics I've ever taken. I love it. Not to toot my own horn or anything...
Highlight #4 - Cirque de Chine - It's a little like Cirque de Soleil, but with Chinese people. This particular cast were the performers at the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony. Somewhere around the 1:30 mark was my favorite part of the show...
Highlight #5 - Phone calls from back home. I know I'm supposed to be getting away from home on vacation, but it's sooo good to know that I'm loved :)
Highlight #6 - I've beaten my dad 3 out of the 4 times we've played rummy this week...and when he beat me, it was by 10 points.
P.S. Low light of my life? Sheed is no longer a Piston :(
My heart is breaking into a million gazillion pieces.
I loved him more than anything.

I (Jessica) haven't blogged in a million billion years.
But thanks to Theresa, she reminded me of this, so lucky for the rest of you.
I feel like a lot has happened in my life...it's just a matter of actually remembering it...
I do remember that my parents went to AZ for a week. And being that I hate being in my house alone, Adam, Hal, Kate, and Erika were nice enough to come spend one day with me so that I wouldn't get too lonely.
And Adam actually won a game. Twice. He broke his long time losing streak against us ;)
We then watched Se7en...and I only got scared once...well, startled...I did accidentally smack Adam...it's a good thing he's tougher than I am.
The next day, I went out with Adam and Hal and Anita and we went and saw the Hangover. I laughed way more than I thought I would, and everyone loves a good laugh, so that was pretty great.
Also, Adam's winning streak went on when he and Hal taught me how to play Hand and Foot. I'm pretty sure that me and Adam slaughtered Hal and Anita....but I'm not sure, because Hal wouldn't let us count the points in the last round...but if he had, I think we would have won like one million to ten...just sayin'...I believe we also drove Hal to Cussville, USA.
Now I'm in Tennessee on family vacation, minus Jeremy who couldn't get off of work. The trip down was slightly a nightmare...it was hotter than the blazes in the back of the car being the AC wasn't working. I was rather pathetic, really...sprawled out in the back...and for some reason, I really thought the only appropriate way to talk was by whispering to conserve energy...desperate times call for desperate measures.
Also, my dad scalded something in the kitchen and filled our whole timeshare with smoke.
Lastly, I wanna say that I love my best friends so much. Especially after this past week.
And you know who you are.
