4th of July happened already?

Today I am feeling really unpatriotic. I didnt eat one hot dog, hamburger, or potato chip to celebrate independance day. I didnt wear any red or white, or even see any fireworks. Basically I am about as unamerican as they come. But in an odd way I kind of liked it. I know that it is so over-the-top to complain about the commercialism of America, but without all the fan-fare that goes along with national holiday's I really did take a second to think about what my freedom really means, and how much I enjoy it. It was nice in a way, although next year I hope that my 4th of July is a little more, um, explosive. Haha, ignore that fun little pun of mine.
Today my calves are cramped like no other. I can harldy walk, and it was really bad when I woke up this morning because I hadn't stretched my calves in 10 hours (yes I sleep like 10 hours a night, sad I know). So I think that it is Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, which is a very fancy way of saying that my muscles are sore from doing too many calf raises at the gym on Saturday. I am hoping that all this pain is going to produce some gams to be desired. Anyone have any tips on how this pain can be ended for me?
Today we are going boating, and I am very excited. I am starting to feel like an albino around anyone I come in contact with. I plan on skiing and everything, but I also am looking forward too laying out in the sun for as long as possible to become a bronze beauty. Good alliteration there. I slalomed for the first time last summer with the Howells (a story in itself), so I am very ready to try it again. If you havent done it yet you should try it, because trust me, it is much better than skiing with two skis.

Now for the most exciting news ever, I think I am going to be able to move back to Provo by the end of this month, 18 days from now to be exact. I can't even type anything else about it because I am so pumped for this to happen. The 'rents are a little apprehensive about it, but I think that is due to the fact that my mom realizes once I leave this time, I am never coming back. I mean I will visit, but she knows that this was my last summer living at home. Maybe after a year of not living at home I will want to come back, but I highly doubt it, I am ready to move out and live on my own. Don't think that my home life isnt the Creme de la Creme, but I have been living in RC a little too long to appreciate it any longer. Check out this link and you will see what I mean, Royal City just does not have a lot going on.

Website of the day-I had a hard time deciding on one today, but just won me over. When my computer shuts down you hear Tigger, when I plug in my palm-pilot you hear Dustin Hoffman complain that he isnt wearing his underwear, and when I empty the trash you hear Richard making fun of Tommy in Tommy Boy. I love it! Try it out for yourself, you will see what I mean. Just save the sounds that you like to your desktop, go into Sounds and Audio Devices in your control panel, click on sounds and change the actions for the program events. Its pure magic.
Tata for now
