I've been a bit lax this week updating my blog. I'm currently pouring through Anton Checkov's The Steppe and Other Stories (good so far!) and have almost given up on Saul Bellow's Humboldt's Gift. Sigh. Might have to make my husband read that one...he might actually understand it.
In the meantime, school started up again this Monday. But the good news is I'm only taking one class. Woohoo! Which means one class next semester with my Capstone test/class and I'm done! And then off to find a real job in my field....eeek! And then that fun conundrum of getting paid less to work more. The odd things we want in life, huh?
But tonight...does anyone know what tonight is? For all those college football fans out there...tonight is the first night of college football games! For the last week or two we've been seeing the Columbia University football team practicing...their stadium is just down the street from us. It's been getting us very antsy for football to start up. Our team, Auburn, doesn't play tonight and we'll have to wait for Saturday...but it's still great to get out there and get all revved up.
Last year we hung out at the ESPN Zone in Times Square and had a ball and met some fun fans. Tonight...the Giants vs the Patriots are on...think we'll skip that madness. So I'll let you know where we decide to go.
For new readers, you can always flashback to my third post on this blog back in October of 2007. And don't worry...our tickets are booked for our annual trip to Auburn, Alabama so I'll definitely be taking photos. WAR EAGLE!!!
And just for fun, here's a bit of flashback to my first Auburn game with the hubby in 2006.
At Toomers Corner - where they TP the whole corner if they win. Obviously we were at a winning game. For those of you might know...it was when Auburn beat the Florida Gators in 2006:
Outside the stadium and in the middle of college football madness:

I hope all of you are enjoying the wind-down of summer and the kick-up of fall...what ever your interests are.
