...it's been a while. I doubt anyone reads this anymore. But I feel like writing so I think I'll do that.
This weekend is Fall break at my school but I've got a game on Sunday that I can't miss so I'm not traveling anywhere. The campus is pretty empty, most people went home on Friday, but the rugby team stayed. HP left yesterday afternoon to go back to NYC. I wish I could have gone with him, I always have fun with him in the city. But, alas, I am here. My mom is coming to visit though since we tentatively have states scheduled for family weekend (which my family was planning on coming up for). She will come up this afternoon and leave on Monday, watching our game Sunday. I'm glad I'll have someone to hang out with, plus I'll get some quality time with my mom.
Yesterday afternoon marked my personal third annual Fancies with women's rugby. I believe I've explained it before but I'll explain it again. All the girls buy ridiculously ugly dresses from the thrift store (mine cost $8) and the vets and rookies meet up before hand separately to drink. We then meet at the field and start to scrimmage in our dresses, drunkenly. Only, our dressses don't make it that far...about 30 seconds into playing we start ripping apart other people's dressses and soon there are shreds all over the field. We chase down people who try to escape and soon everyone is in their sports bra and spandex. Then, the boys team decides it's time to step in and play. They start to scrimmage with us and girls are getting tackled all over the place. This year it had been raining all day so everyone was geting completely covered in mud. It was amazing. So the girls were getting thrown around in their spandex in the mud and the guys were having a gay old time. Eventually a couple people got hit a little too hard so we stopped playing. Then, after having our coach take our muddy picture a few of us decided that it would be a good idea to jump in the Lake around here (there's a small late, maybe even a pond, that is at the bottom of campus and it is very pretty. they place swans in it every year to make it look better. before you graduate you are supposed to have jump in the lake at least once, i took this as my opportunity). So I jumped into the lake, my cleats keeping me from touching the muddy gross bottom and it smelled horrible. I quickly climbed out and a few other people were pushed in. Then we trekked home in the rain in our spandex along the main road. It was hilarious. We were all soaking wet from head to toe.
I took a hot and very clean shower afterwards because I also have a cold right now and didn't want to kill myself. We went back to the original apartment we were at but most people were tired so we watched Pirates of the Carribean. I got my hair french braided (yes, I know, very girly, but you've got to do those things every once in a while). We watched the end of the Yankees game (Go Angels!!) and got some late night snacks from the supermarket. It was a pretty cozy evening and now I'm trying to gear up for a morning practice in the cold rain before our coach has to head off to the boys' game in Syracuse. I really do love this sport, and as a junior I'm starting to realize that I won't have this team forever. It is making me sad and I don't want to ever leave it. I think rugby is one of the things I will miss the most at my school (oops...almost typed it out there :) )
Anyway, I've been blathering on for a while, I should start cleaning up the apartment for my mom and getting dressed for practice. It's going to be a cool one.
