Happy New Year!

2011 is ending tonight, and 2012 begins tomorrow.

I'm welcoming the new year with open arms.

Bring on change.

I think I need that in my life.

2012 New Year's Resolutions.

2011 is quickly coming to an end so here are my 2012 New Year's Resolutions.

Let's see how well I can keep up with them.

  1. Eat better (in moderation). I've pretty much gotten the working out thing down so now I just need to eat better and in moderation. No more eating out of a bag; I need to pour whatever it is I'm eating into a bowl so I'm not tempted to eat more. Or I shouldn't eat when I'm bored (story of my life). We'll see how this one goes.
  2. Learn chess. Yes, this resolution is back.
  3. Learn how to use chopsticks. This one is back as well.
  4. Continue to workout. I do it semi-consistently already so I just need to keep at it.
  5. Find a better job. I hope to leave the Y at the end of the school year. I hope.
  6. Try not to let the little things bother me so easily. I need to let the little things go; they're not worth it.
  7. Do something out of my comfort zone (or a few things). I need to try something I wouldn't normally do or really want to do.
  8. Travel. I want to do a day-trip of some sort where I can go and take pictures.
  9. Try and keep my room clean. This one makes me laugh.
  10. Make a [complete] bucket list. Maybe I'll even do some of the things on it.
  11. Find a boyfriend. I'm on the hunt. Nah, I'll just settle for meeting a nice guy.
  12. Make 2012 a good year. I don't want to sit on the sidelines and watch everyone else have a good year. I need to make something happen for myself.
  13. Don't buy things I don't need. And spend less on Amazon. I have a bad addiction to online-shopping.

I'm really liking the Zumba Fitness 2 for the Wii. It's fun to play, and it doesn't feel like a workout at all. I just decided to go ahead and buy the first Zumba Fitness too. I mean, why not? I heard the second one was better (which is why I bought that one first), but I hear the first one is good too.

I like to dance but hate working out. This is perfect for me since it doesn't feel like a workout.

I really do sweat though!

Zumba! Zumba! Zumba!

30 Day Psych Challenge: Day 6

Day 6 - Favorite Burton "Gus" Guster moment.

I love when he says "Whatttt!" or "You must be out of your damn mind." when Shawn suggests something ridiculous.

I also love his facial expressions. Gus is the more sensible one (most of the time) so it's funny to see Gus' reaction when Shawn says or does something crazy.

Sunday, November 20, 2011

30 Day Psych Challenge: Day 5

Day 5 - Favorite Shawn Spencer moment.

I have to pick just one? Yeah right! haha! I love when Shawn says "Gus don't be _______". It's always interesting to see what he comes up with. I also loved when Shawn told Juliet he loved her when they were in Canada. That was more of a sentimental moment, but it was nice to see!

I also love the scenes with Shawn and Lassiter. It's so funny to see how much Lassiter hates Shawn, but in reality, he needs him.

I basically love when Shawn is being Shawn. He's hilarious, and that's why I love this show!

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

30 Day Psych Challenge: Day 4

Day 4 - Favorite recurring character.

Hmm, I really like Woody. He's the medical examiner, and he's hilarious. Him and Shawn get along really well so it's always funny to watch them together. Plus, I think he gets on Lassiter's nerves so that's always great to watch too!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

30 Day Psych Challenge: Day 3

Day 3 - Favorite main character.

That's an easy one: Shawn Spencer. Whoever wrote this character is genius. Shawn is hilarious, and in a parallel universe, I feel like we would be best friends. It's always interesting to see what Shawn does or what he says because you know it's going to be funny. He's one of the best characters on TV.

Monday, November 14, 2011


These seriously make me laugh.

30 Day Psych Challenge: Day 2

Day 2: The first episode of Psych you ever saw.

I actually watched the Pilot when it aired, but for some odd and crazy reason, I didn't continue watching the show at the time. I remember seeing previews for The Polarizing Express and Dead Bear Walking around Christmas time last year so I decided to start from the beginning. Then I got addicted. And here I am.

Sunday, November 13, 2011

30 Day Psych Challenge: Day 1

Day 1 - Why do you love Psych?

This show is pure genius. It should get much more recognition than it does. The characters are hilarious. Shawn Spencer is one of the best characters on TV, and of course, you gotta love his "sidekick" and best friend Burton "Gus" Guster.

I love a good comedy, and this is a good comedy.

More people need to watch this show.

30 Day Psych Challenge...let's do this!

A TV survey? Yes, please.

Pick your top 5 shows

1. Psych

2. Hawaii Five-0

3. Modern Family


5. Grimm

1. Who is your favorite character in 2?

Steve McGarrett. Although Danny is a close second.

2. Who is your least favorite character in 1?

I seriously love them all. And you would too. But if I had to pick, I guess Chief Vick. Only because she's not a "main" main character. If you know what I mean. Still like her though. She provides order for Shawn and Gus.

3. What’s your favorite episode of 4?

Boxed In, Undercovers, SWAK, Chained, Missing - anything where Michael Weatherly is featured more.

4. What is your favorite season of 5?

Since it's a new show, I'm going to go with season 1 ;)

5. What’s your favorite relationship in 3?:

Cam and Mitchell are hilarious.

6. Who is your anti relationship in 2?:

Kono and anyone. Not really a fan of hers.

7. How long have you watched 1?:

It's my favorite show. I didn't watch when it originally aired, but I've seen every episode, and I own all 5 seasons on DVD, and I currently watch season 6 every Wed night.

8. How did you become interested in 3?:

I like comedies, and it looked hilarious. And it is.

9. Who is your favorite actor in 4?:

Michael Weatherly. He's perfect on the show.

10. Which show do you prefer 1, 2, or 5?:

#1: Psych.

11. Which show have you seen more episodes of 1 or 3?

#1: Psych. Only because they have more seasons.

12. If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be?

Ziva. She's kick-ass and gets to work with Tony and McGee.

13. How would you kill off your favorite character in 1?:

Well, since Shawn is funny, I'd do some kind of scavenger hunt, and at the end, have him trip down a well. I came up with that pretty quickly. Weird.

14. Would a 3/4 crossover work?:

Probably not. One's a comedy and the other is a drama. Plus, the plots are completely different.

15. Pair two characters in 1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple:

Chief Vick and Lassiter. I could see it. Maybe.

16. Over all, which show has a better cast, 3 or 5?

#3: Modern Family. They've proven that by winning awards and such. Grimm doesn't have a big cast, and plus it's new.

17. Which has better theme music, 2 or 4?:

Totally #2: Hawaii Five-0. Although NCIS isn't bad either. But the Hawaii Five-0 theme is catchy!

Went shooting today!

I finally shot a gun! Guns are interesting, and I've wanted to shoot one for a long time. I watch Top Shot on the History channel, and it just looked so cool.

Well, today I shot some guns! I shot a 22 rifle, a 20 gauge shotgun, and a 12 gauge shotgun...I think? Haha I think that's right!

A friend of my sister's boyfriend shoots on his property so he taught us. Plus, he was cute! And really nice! I think I found my future husband haha

All in all, I had a lot of fun today, and I'm glad I finally got to shoot a gun!!

Maybe next time I can shoot a pistol or something ;)

I decided to watch Grimm on NBC last night, and I'm glad I did! Supernatural is also on at 9:00, but I always tape that to watch over the weekend, so I decided to check out the new show Grimm.

I really like the storyline. It gave me a Supernatural-feel to it, which interested me right off the bat. It's creepy, and it keeps you on your toes. I never really read the Grimm fairy tales (the actual Grimm fairy tales), but of course I know the versions we read to children. The storyline is interesting since everyone knows about the fairy tales, and I'm curious to see how the show portrays them.

I also like the characters. Nick plays the main character, and he's a cop who can see people for who they really are...monsters. He has good chemistry with his partner, and I think they make a good team. A surprising character I liked was Monroe, the blutbod (spelling?), who is a former "big bad wolf" that kind of aides Nick.

Overall, it seems like a pretty good show, and I'll definitely be watching next week!

iPhone has been ordered!!

Verizon ran out of iPhones...can you believe that?! I can't!!

Ugh. So instead of getting it tomorrow, like I initially planned, I had to order it online since the next shipment isn't supposed to go out until 10/28. On the site it says free overnight shipping, so I REALLY hope I get it the 29th!!!

I'm soooooo impatient.

This sucks.

I want it yesterday.

Sunday, October 16, 2011


Yes, it's true.

I am going to get an iPhone. I initially didn't want one because I have an iPod touch, and it's almost the same thing except it can't call or text. Well, my phone can get an upgrade, and I thought, why not?

I loveeeeee my iPod touch so I know I'm going to loveeeeee the iPhone.

I just ordered 2 cases and some screen protectors, which is why I'm waiting until next Saturday to get the actual phone.

I'm pretty excited...not gonna lie.

The Yankees lost to the Tigers last night 3-2. They tied the series up at 2-2, but couldn't beat the Tigers in the final division game.

Better luck next year boys!!

Bachelor Pad.

Okay, I hate admitting this, and it's a little embarrassing, but I think I'm addicted to Bachelor Pad. The finale aired last night, and I just watched it. It was so good haha. I get really invested in their lives, and it's just so interesting!

Here's my take on the night:

I felt bad Kirk and Ella got eliminated at the first challenge. I was a little tired of hearing Ella talk about winning the money for her son (that got old fast), but I was a little mad Kirk had to leave too. He seems like such a great guy!

I was glad Mike/Holly and Graham/Michelle were the final two couples. I was SO happy to see Kasey/Vienna leave; they're just so annoying!

I love Jake. I believe him and his side of the story. I feel bad he ever got involved with Vienna; she's crazy.

I'm glad Kasey apologized to Jake, and Kasey seems like he really did change. In the house, he came off like such a jerk, and I'm glad he at least apologized about it.

Vienna is still crazy.

Michelle and Graham are basically the cutest couple on the planet. I was a little surprised they weren't voted to the final two; I really thought they would be! Oh well, they have each other...and I hope they get married some day!

Speaking of married, I'm so happy for Blake and Holly and their engagement! I was really shocked they got engaged, but they're really cute together, and I can tell he really loves her. I did feel bad for Mike and how he found out at the finale.

I knew Mike and Holly would both chose "share" and split the money; we all knew they would.

Yeah, seriously, I think I'm addicted. This show is so sad that it's soooo good! haha

Oh, and I'm still sad Ames and Jackie aren't still together; they had the most romantic exit in Bachelor history too - oh well! :(

Sunday, September 11, 2011

Fantasy football.

I love Fantasy football.

I get really into it.

I hope I can do well without Peyton Manning this year; I usually get him, and he always brings in the points.

Oh well, let's see how Welker's Waffles (my awesome team name) does this year!


Wednesday, September 07, 2011


So my computer wouldn't start the other day, and it turns out it's a hard-drive issue. I got my new hard-drive today, and we also sent my old one to this company to see if they can RECOVER MY FILES!

I'm basically going to cry myself to sleep for the rest of my life if they can't recover my files. My whole life is on my computer so I'm crossing my fingers they can do it!!!!!

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

School has officially started again!

It's been nice having 2 days off because of Hurricane Irene, but it's back to business today! Getting up at 5:45 was a little hard, not gonna lie; I didn't miss that! The morning went well. We didn't have our Kindergartners since it was gradual release, and we won't have them this afternoon either so it won't be too bad.

Day 1 is almost done.


Tuesday, August 30, 2011


I didn't think finding the right hair color would be soooo annoying! I THOUGHT I found one, but after looking online, I saw a review that said it comes out really dark. The color I choose is Dark Red Copper Brown so it's already dark; I don't want it looking like black when I'm done.

Maybe I'll see if I can exchange it tomorrow? Ugh, I just wanna dye my hair!

Monday, August 29, 2011

Here I go again...

I'm thinking about dying my hair. I haven't done it in a couple years, and I kind of want a change.

I want a really dark auburn. I feel like my hair is lighter than it normally is, so I want something dark, but with a red tint.

Maybe I'll dye my hair, maybe I won't.

We'll see.

James Patterson.

He is by far my favorite author; his books are amazing, and I love the fact that he has short chapters. I know that's not a deal breaker for me or anything, but it helps!

I started a Tumblr!!

It's about dang time! I've been trying to start a Tumblr for a couple weeks now, and the link never worked...but I emailed them, and they reset it so I'm good to go!

My Tumblr is going to be a "My Photos/My Questions" thing where I take one of my photos, and ask a simple question pertaining to the photo.

It's easy and fun...and off I go!!

Saturday, August 20, 2011


Change is a funny thing. Sometimes you want it to happen, and sometimes it happens whether you want it or not.

This time, I want change.

I need something to change in my life. And I think I know what I want.

I want to get a tattoo. Hehe - baby steps. I've wanted one for a long time now, and I really think I should get one.

We'll see...


Friday, August 19, 2011


I really like this show. It's under-appreciated though, which is a total bummer because it's pretty good. The actors are decent (not George Clooney but still good). It stinks that it's on Friday night because I think that's the worst night for TV (I still catch it though! or tape it lol).

Tonight's episode was the summer finale, and apparently the show won't be on CBS anymore - why, I don't know. It might come back on ION? It's not canceled so it's coming back somewhere lol.

It was a great episode tonight. It revolved around my favorite character Spike. He left his dying father's side to help his team defuse a bomb. Sergio Di Zio (Spike) was spot-on tonight; he was perfect in the episode.

I can't wait for Flashpoint to come back...and it better come back! ;)

" step at a time."

"The elevator to success is out of order. You'll have to use the step at a time."
- Joe Girard

I really like this quote, and it definitely applies to my life right now. I'm not really pursuing a teaching job at the moment; I like my job as a SAS Director. It's hard finding out my friends are getting teaching jobs, but how can I be mad? I'm not trying to get one myself right now, and I'm still confused as to if I even want to do it. I know once I become a teacher I'll love it. It's just right now I'm content where I am, and I don't want things to change. "Everything happens for a reason." I truly believe that quote, and if I'm meant to work for the Y another year, then so be it. I'll become a teacher when I'm ready. Like the quote says, to get success, you need to take it one step at a time so that's what I'm doing.

Monday, August 15, 2011

More funny sayings.

"Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling?"

"The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory."

"The road to success is always under construction."

"If you die in an elevator, be sure to push the Up button."

"I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places."

"Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says "If an emergency, notify:" I put "DOCTOR". What's my mother going to do?"

"Children: You spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 years telling them to sit down and shut-up."

"How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?"

Some people are like Slinkies...not really good for anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs."

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?"

Some people say "If you can't beat them, join them". I say "If you can't beat them, beat them", because they will be expecting you to join them, so you will have the element of surprise."

Day 19: a picture of you when you were little

I was stinkin' cute! :)

Apparently I had trouble getting the food in my mouth; I can say that is NOT a problem I have now hahaha ;)


I attempted to create a Tumblr for kicks and giggles, but it's not letting me even click the site. Every time I do, it comes up as search results instead of taking me to the Tumblr homepage.

I think it's a sign I shouldn't create a Tumblr account.

Maybe - haha ;)

n. Internal and external factors that stimulate desire and energy in people to be continually interested in and committed to a job, role, or subject, and to exert persistent effort in attaining a goal.

what's your motivation for what you want to accomplish?

maybe my motivation isn't enough.

maybe I need to strive for my goal just a little more.

story of my life.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 18

Day 18: a picture of your biggest insecurity

Of course my biggest insecurity is my body. Most girls aren't happy with the way they look, and yes, I'm one of them. Losing weight is hard, but it's sort of coming along.

I hope I can eventually feel good about the way I look.

We'll see.

Good Life.

"When you're happy like a fool,
Let it take you over.
When everything is out,
You gotta take it in.

Oh this has gotta be the good life.
This has gotta be the good life,
This could really be a good life, good life."

Good song. Good lyrics.
I want a really good life right now. Mine is just okie dokie.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 17

Day 17: a picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently
(okay, I may have let this project slip through the cracks. I'm back though!)

I guess the only thing (recently) that has impacted my life was becoming the director at a new camp this summer. I had never been a director of a camp before (only assistant director), but I learned a lot, and I had a great summer.

Camp ends in 2 days, and I have to say, overall, it was a fun summer! :)

Sunday, August 07, 2011


I'm debating whether or not I should sell some of my photos on Etsy. I know a few people who use the site, but I don't know.

I'll see.


Searching for blogs.

I decided to click the "Next blog" tab at the top to see if I could find any cool or interesting blogs. It was pretty much a failure though. I found a lot of blogs that talked about religion and politics, which are two things I pretty much know nothing about.

Maybe I'll keep searching...maybe.

Question of the moving.

I'm going to create a new blog just for the "Question of the Day".

You can find it here.

Question of the Day - #17

#17 - What are you a "natural" at doing?

I would say I'm a natural at working/talking with kids. For some reason, I get along with them better than adults. I love working with kids (have been for 7 years), and it's just easier for me sometimes to talk with them.

Carrie had bridesmaids in her wedding who had kids, and I had fun playing and talking with them, and one of them told me I was great with her kids. It's just easy for me to talk to kids.

Question of the Day - #16

#16 - If you could be transformed into any animal for one day, which animal would you select? What kind of experience would you expect?

I would like to be a bird because then I could fly and travel pretty much anywhere. I'm not really sure what I would expect, but I would like to just fly and view the world from the sky; I think that would be kind of cool.

Question of the Day - #15

#15 - When did you ever immediately "click" with someone you just met? What was the long-term result? To what do you attribute that kind of connection?

I probably last "clicked" with someone right off the bat when I met Carrie. She was in one of my education classes, and I really liked her children's book so I told her that. She came off as a really nice person.

The long-term result is that we're best friends! I was just in her wedding a couple weeks ago. We roomed together our senior year of college too. We just get along; she's the type of person I can tell anything too. She wouldn't judge me either.

I think we "click" because we're both easy-going people. Also, we both are both Early Childhood Education majors so we have that in common as well. When one of us stresses, the other one can calm them down; we balance each other nicely.

New picture.

Pretty proud of my new picture :)

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone!

Question of the Day - #14

#14 - What was the first movie you saw in a theater?

Jurassic Park, which ended up scarring me for life! I don't think I've seen that movie since (maybe bits and pieces), but I have no desire to watch it again. I think I saw it when I was 5 so I was pretty much doomed for the rest of my life when it came to dinosaurs! haha ;)

A favorite.

I was just looking through my poems, and here's a favorite I came across:


Goodbyes are not forever,
That’s what you would always say,
And I would have believed you,
If you didn’t leave that day.
You said you were coming back,
So you never said goodbye,
But it’s been days and weeks,
I’m still living with your lie.
I sit alone and wonder,
And I think of all the ‘whys’,
Why would you leave me here,
Without telling me goodbye?

I think I'm obsessed. Numb3rs is such a fascinating show; it's addicting to watch.

The story lines keep you guessing, and the characters are fun to watch.

I wish it wasn't canceled.

I'm in the middle of watching season 4, and there's 6 seasons; I don't want it to end!

Even though I can't understand Charlie and his Math half the time, the show is so interesting to watch!

1st week of camp = done :)

The 1st week of camp is officially done!! Besides all of the paperwork, it went really well! We have a pretty good group of kids, and my staff is good too!

I think it's going to be a good summer.


Sunday, June 19, 2011

Camp starts tomorrow!


I'm nervous.

I hope everything goes okay; I'm sure SOMETHING will go wrong, but it's the first day, so that's expected haha.

Last day.

Tomorrow is my last day with my kiddos. I can't believe how quickly the school year has gone. It's been a great first year as Director though; I had a good group of kids, the parents were nice and welcoming, and my staff was great.

Now it's on to camp...ugh.

Words with friends.

I think I'm becoming addicted.

I was warned this would happen, but I didn't believe it!

It's fun.

Derek Jeter :)

Derek Jeter has 2,996 hits! He's 4 hits away from 3,000!

I love that man <3



Why are boys so confusing?

Oh, life.

Let's get past it.

I just want to get past this week. I have a lot to do though so I don't want it to go too fast either; I need to be able to get everything done this week that I need to, and I hope it goes smoothly. Camp starts next Monday, and who knows if I'll be ready!

My head hurts. Stress is no fun.

Question of the Day - #13

#13 - What color describes your mood right now?

Hmm...what color means "stressed"? I'll go with black since, to me, that seems like a stressful color at the moment.

I want to be yellow since that seems like a fun, happy color.

I need a vacation.

These past 2 weeks have been so stressful (due to work); I've had headaches every night! The next 2 weeks aren't going to get any better either; if only it was July...I think it will be better once it's July.

I can only hope.

Interesting dream.

I had a dream last night that I married some guy with the last name of Riley.

Also, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were in it too - I can explain that one though. I just watched The Voice yesterday with Blake, and I watched the CMT awards and both Blake and Miranda won.

I can't explain me getting married though.

It's tradition: my summer show

Usually every summer (or might be during winter break) I pick a show to watch on DVD (can be a current show or one that is off the air). I started this tradition a couple years ago.

so far I've watched:
  • 24 (watched seasons 1-5)
  • Psych (watched seasons 1-5)
  • Criminal Minds (watched seasons 1-4)
  • NCIS (watched seasons 1-2)
this summer I am tackling Numb3rs, seasons 1-6.

And off I go...


Andy Grammer.

I like his music.

I finally got a bridesmaid dress!! Carrie ended up picking out 3 from David's Bridal for us to choose from, and this is the one I chose (in black).

Going crazy.

First, I thought I could hear the rain on the roof...then I realized I was in the basement.

Second, I thought I heard the phone ring two different times...and it wasn't ringing either time.

I'm going crazy! :D

April 20th.

It’s sad to see this day is known for anything but what happened 12 years ago. Today is the anniversary for the Columbine shooting that took 13 lives.

I was 11, and I'll never forget looking at the front of the newspaper and seeing the 13 pictures. And to this day, I hate hearing the song, "I Will Remember You" by Sarah McLachlan because while I was looking at the newspaper, that song came on the radio, and it was edited with people screaming and crying after the shooting. So now everytime I hear that song, I'm brought back to that day I was in my room reading the newspaper, which is why I change the station when it comes on.

Never forget April 20, 1999. <3

Too funny.

Speaking of funny, Russell Brand was HILARIOUS when he co-hosted on Regis and Kelly last week. I had to pause the show cause I was laughing so hard!!

Anyways, here's a quote from Psych that is just as funny :)

: Woodrow my good man.
: Shawn! Always nice to see you walk through that door.
: Well let’s hope you never see me rolled in on a gurney.
: Let’s, although I would be honored to saw through your chest and remove your good-natured heart from its cavity.
: I’m touched. Woody, in your professional opinion, how do I die?
: Murder, Gangland-style execution. We never find your head.
: That’s a shame.
(Gus raises his hand to find out how he dies)

: (to Gus) You slip in a tub.

I my ears pierced!!!!

Yes, I am 23, and I finally got my ears pierced yesterday!

I'm still not used to it yet, it's only been a day, ha, but I guess I like it? It's just different so it's going to take time.

Stop snacking.

Note to self: stop snacking.

Seriously, Kels. Snack less. Don't eat when you're bored. Find something to do like read, chew gum, or do a sudoku.

That is all.

Why is trying to contact my best friend the most frustrating thing in the world right now? I had been trying to get in touch with her for OVER a month (I tried calling, texting, emailing, facebooking) so I texted her fiance about it, and my friend finally texted me back last week. She posed the question of getting together next weekend so I said that might work, and I haven't heard from her since!

I'm about to give up trying to get together with her.

I'm in her wedding for heaven's sake!

Hump day laughs

Here are some Psych quotes to get me through the remainder of the day!

: We owe it to Nick to catch this clown. It’s your fault he got suspended.
: It’s our fault.
: How come when something is my fault it’s mine exclusively? When it’s your fault, we share it equally.
: Because I went to college.
: That’s not cool.

: Oh no, Gus is melting! I need to wake up.
: Not until you learn your lesson.
. I did. I learned how important I am to everyone.
: This isn’t about them. Haven’t you seen It’s a Wonderful Life?
: No. I can’t do black and white.
: How about A Christmas Carol?
: I can’t do subtitles. You know what I did see? Elf!

: We need to get out of here. Alright you’re going to squeeze through this window, and then circle around to the front of the building.
: And then what!?
: I don’t know. Create a diversion. Throw-up on a baby. Sing really loudly. Pee in the dunk tank.
: My arms couldn’t fit through there, Shawn.
: Are you kidding? It’s not like you’re wearing floaties. You can squeeze through that like old toothpaste. I’m gonna give you a push; I’ve seen this work plenty of times.
: Where, on Winnie the Pooh?
: And other places.
