Ready…Set…Paddle!!!

I was just checking my e-mail and stumbled upon a video article about the giant pumpkins…

So I went to YouTube and found another video…

Can I say bucket list?  What could be cooler than racing a giant pumpkin?  Unless it was a giant pumpkin boat?!  Just by googling giant pumpkin boat I got some great results…

A paddle boat themed pumpkin…

Or my personal favourite, the attached outboard motor…

All I can say is that I am now extremely jealous of giant pumpkin farmers and that one day I hope to get out on the water in my own seaworthy squash…but back to my bucket list.  I can cross off one item.

That’s right, I got in Our Town!  This means I will have worked with all my professors in some production or another with the exception of our TD Troy.  I felt pretty good about this audition and was glad to be a part of the production in some way.  And ensemble is one of my favourite things because not only will I have a couple of individual lines, but I get to sing in the town choir!  Singing is one of my favourite things to do and I might get to play my mellophone as well which would be really neat…

This summer I got to cross off something that had been on my bucket list for a while- get out of the country.  And those of you that know me are like, “Kelly you did that already, the Bahamas, remember?”

And yeah, I did leave the country but that isn’t nearly the same thing as boarding a plane for a seven hour flight to Europe, well to Ireland but that counts as Europe!  I was so excited to be able to go on the Ireland trip that the eleven hour bus ride to NYC and the seven hour flight were slight obstacles…I mean I did manage to knit an entire hat for my friend Nicole on the bus (on the way to NYC and back home from NYC).  It was crazy exciting!  I felt like a kid in a candy store…it was fantastic.

If you look in the bottom right corner of the above picture, you will see my carry-on for the trip and if you are thinking “Hey!  That looks like a bowling ball bag…” you would be correct.  It is a bowling ball bag and if you didn’t know, these bags have a hard surface bottom which are apparently a red flag for the TSA people…oops.  I thought it was funny but a tiny bit scary being pulled out because of my bag but the lady just poked in it with a stick and let me go…anyway, I’ll keep posting more on here later… 🙂
