If you sang along with the Bay City Rollers like I did, then you are alright.
I decided if I am going to have a blog, then we have to do exciting things. Blogging about last night's episode of re-run Law & Order, although a favorite show of mine, doesn't make for exciting reading. So for our first adventure, we went bowling. Nothing says Saturday Night Date Night like wearing shoes that perhaps hundreds of other people have worn, putting your fingers inside a sweaty ball made of urethane and hefting said ball down an alley hoping to knock over tall Weeble-Wobbles. So, of course it was romantic!

We had two choices of alleys an equal distance from our home. One in the ghetto (across the street from Targhetto) or a newer one that we tried last year. We waited for a lane for 3 hours and ended up going home last time. So this year we opted for the ghetto-bowl.
It has been YEARS since I last bowled (Kryptonite by 3 Doors Down had just been released), so I wasn't quite in my prime. Darrell had just bowled about 6 weeks ago for a work bowl-a-thon, so he definitely had an unfair advantage.
In our first game, Darrell was the undisputed winner. He scored a 128 to my 80. Game two was almost the same--Darrell 115, Stephanie 81. Game three was a little better at 138 to 109. We even were tied at one point. Actually, there was a point in game one that I was leading. I guess I shouldn't have gloated!
We finished in about 90 minutes and decided next time to take more people. We contemplated trying Xtreme Bowling next time, but since Darrell isn't quite as much of a night person that I am, that was nixed.
Darrell got 5 strikes to my 2; 7 spares to my 3; 11 gutters to my 12.
All in all, a good time was had by all.

Check back next week for further i-lund living adventures!

I just can't seem to get enough!

So I found a new background I like and I think I can live with this for awhile. I want a new header, so that will be my first project as a digital scrapbooker.

Clearly I lied!

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to change my blog layout so that it looks like I want it to. This is so beyond my comprehension. I see that it is similar to digital scrapbooking and I think I will just have to get one of my more talented friends to help me.

Welcome to the i-lund!

So I decided I should take another stab at blogging. I am trying to figure out computer code so that this blog looks cute, and I am having an awful time. I tried to have a left and a right side bar, but all I have is two right side bars with the same information in both. Nice! I will not stop until I get my blog to look the way I want it to. Wish me luck!
