Time of post: 12:33 AM
Hey everyone. It's been a while since I've posted. Sorry about that. And to those few new guestbook entries that I haven't returned yet, I should be taking care of that tonight.

This weekend has been great. I made the most amazing purchase this weekend. Sam Goody is going out of business and they had a massive sale. Everything in the store was 90-95% off during the last day. More importantly though, they were also selling all of the fixtures in the store as well. The first sign I saw for the fixtures said $160 so obviously, I just ignored it. On the last day though, I decided to ask how much it was. To make a long story short, I got one of the wall fixtures for $5 and now have a lot more room for my stuff ^_^

One thing went slightly wrong - I needed another inch where I was going to put the rack. It was just barely too big. So my friend who was with me at the time came back to my house and we found a metal saw and cut small portion of the metal bar on the side out and now it fits perfectly. It's so nice when things work out the way they're supposed to.

And to make things better, spring break is finally here for me so I'm off for the week. I'm not going anywhere right away but I am visiting Cornelle up in Ithica, NY on Thursday and Friday so that should be fun.

Hmm... that's really all I can think of right now. I thought I had more to say but I guess not. As usual, if I do think of anything else, it will be either added or posted next time.

So, thanks for continuing to visit and comment. Hopefully I should have quite a bit of free time to do the same this week. Have a great night/day!

Edit: Somewhere around 1:00 AM (I forgot to add this before I submitted the post.)
Well, I'm back because I remember what I forgot to mention before - my trip to Medieval Times on Friday. For those of you who don't know what Medieval Times is, click here, to find out.

Anyway, remember the choreographer I mentioned from the musical? Well throughout the production, we became pretty good friends. She happens to be the Princess there and sent the Tinman, Scarecrow, Lion, and me tickets to Medieval Times to see here there. After working out a date, we finally went on Friday and it was awesome.

There's one detail I'd like to mention. During the course of the night, there are contests held for the six knights to compete in. At the end of each of the four contests, the Princess throws flowers to the winning knights. Following the final contest, still during the show with the spotlight on her, she turned to my friends and me (we were sitting directly next to the stage) and gave us each a flower. This really ended up making my night for two reasons. First, it was obviously very sweet of her to think of us even while doing the show. Second though was that of the 1,346 other people there, at least one person must have said "What makes them so special?" ^_^ Like I said, it was still during the show so thinking about that and the fact that we were there because we were invited by the Princess herself (you can't help but get into the medieval spirit while you're there) made for a very nice moment, and more so, a very nice night.

Now, I've been there before, quite a few times actually, but this is by far the best experience I've ever had there. We got reserved seats and some other nice benefits. Plus, the thought of knowing the Princess while we were there was a very fun one ^_^

There's a lot to tell but that's the important stuff.

So again, have a great night/day!
