This is wonderful:

Eric Scott used a hydrogen-peroxide powered jet pack to cross the Royal Gorge near Canon City on Monday, pushing the outer limits of a technology long ago abandoned by the military. According to a spokesperson for Scott, he completed the flight in 21 seconds. The jet pack itself only contained 30-seconds-worth of fuel. The Royal Gorge, cut by the Arkansas River in southern Colorado, is more than 1,100 feet deep. The Royal Gorge Bridge that spans it was the site of a deadly stunt in October 2003 when Dwain Weston, 30, apparently miscalculated a parachute jump while wearing a "wing suit" and hit a railing on the bridge and fell to his death. Scott works for Denver-based Jet P.I., which developed the futuristic-looking jet pack for stunts, promotions and other events around the world for Go Fast Sports & Beverage. Both companies were founded by Troy Widgery.

This is yet another distraction from my last few pages of schoolwork. Ever. Well, unless I decide to go to graduate school, but that won't be for a little while. With almost six years of college done I need a break for a bit.

Thanksgiving is only three days away and I can already taste Turkey. Stuffing. Gravy. I don't really know if I want to continue to think about it right now, but bottom line is that its coming up soon. Another thing coming up soon is my graduation, which anyone reading this is invited to. It is Dec. 13th at 9 am, in the convention center. I guess they wanted to make us wake up early one more time before we graduate.

I'm sure I've told you if we've talked recently, but Fletcher and I crossed off number 86 on my list. It was incredible experience, especially when we were calling out coordinates in the frozen section of Safeway. I very much enjoy creating social situations that people are confused by, or don't see everyday. I think everyone would have a lot better of a time in life if they weren't so worried about being normal. Being uncomfortable or in a new situation is when we grow the most as people; something I've come to realize lately. I've also realized lately that I am very fortunate to have the friends and family in my life that I do. Me thanking everyone in a blog really doesn't really do it justice, but thank you.

In the meantime, Lilly is really starting to get lonely. She is constantly trying to stand on me, talk about her personal problems, and even insist that we go downstairs and "play ping pong". I think shes starting to get a little jealous. Sorry girl.

Happy Thanksgiving

I dont know what words to type but I just had to type something. She hasn't seen as many years as me, but it doesn't matter. I had the same dream three nights in a row. Doesn't that mean something? She's gorgeous, but I can't tell her. She's perfect, but I can't tell her. I guess someone can, but it won' t be me. Its funny how things work up until the very point that they need to, but when you need them to work most they fail. Feeling helpless is one of the worst feelings in the world for me, and lately its all that I've been feeling. Goodnight
