5 years

that's how long the lemon twisted heart blog has been around. and i forgot it's birthday once again. how could i forget? at least i'm not going to forget that it's mother's day tomorrow. in honor of the day, i give you, mr t:

phil collins and pom poms

just south of the minneapolis institute of art i was almost run over by a living piece of art. there was this hippie fellow, wearing an american flag bandanna atop his head, and colored sunglasses on his face. his bicycle had pom poms on the handle bars, and a pink boombox strapped to the front blasting phil collins music.

he was most likely strung out on something as he sort of wobbled across the street on his bicycle. he ignored the do not walk signal, and biked right in front of a cop car, then he almost crashed into me.

the police officer rolled down his window and yelled at him, "hey there! watch where you're going!"

he kept wobbling down the sidewalk and yelled back, "i'm going to the library!"

everybody panic! it's the swine flu!

stuff the media hypes up often gets out of control.

my mom sent me an email with the subject: "CDC Warning: How you catch Swine Flu..."

i thought she was being a overly worried mother, as most mothers are, until i opened the email.

she wrote "Try to remember this, okay? ;)"

then there was the email she forwarded: "Tell your kids. CDC Warning: ***DO NOT DO THIS!!!***"

and finally, the picture:

dropping the ball

another ad league bowling season is over. we did much better than last year. last year we didn't even make the playoffs. this year we ended the regular season in 5th place out of 42 teams. then in the first round of the playoffs we had to play the other campbell mithun team. the team that probably takes bowling a little more seriously than we do. the winner of the best of three advances. we lost the first game. then came back and won the next two. it was a very intense emotional victory. and traditionally teams don't bounce back well after those sorts of victories.

tonight was the next round. only 16 teams remained and it was single elimination. not good for our team since we always start slow. halfway through the game we were up by 30 pins. but then things started going downhill. we ended up losing by 40 pins. perhaps the worst part of that is that i bowled my worst game of the season, 40 pins below average. the other worst part might have been some dude's plumbers crack on the other team, which was probably the cause of my poor showing.

despite the loss. team FDR did way better this year than i was expecting. it's too bad it had to end like that though. it's kind of how it always ends for the minnesota sports teams i look up to. here's to next year. and on a side note, go twins!
