Happy Blogiversary!

1 year ago today, Life in the Fast Layne was born. Well actually it was called, "A Day in the Life," until a friend suggested a very punny title. 
So a year ago it was a weekend, there was no freezing rain and there was not a hurricane hitting my home town. But rest assured things are a okay here. 
 Actually, Maryland didn't get too much damage, but New Jersey definitely did. For me, the interesting part is how this is going to affect the election. Not only will people be hindered from voting, the experience may even change their opinions of the candidates.

So we just have to wait until November 6th and hope that it gets a little warmer!
Do you think this storm will have a profound effect on the election results?

Fall Break

Good morning!

For all of us Michigan students this lovely Wednesday feels like a Monday since we had Monday and Tuesday off for Fall Break. Last week was very stressful for me so a break was welcomed. Luckily the stressful week meant that I could relax during break.

Saturday I was on the color guard for the football game. As much as I'd like to say that it was a blast, it was raining and freezing cold. But we did win 45-0 so there was a good outcome.

Sunday I watched lots of movies and TV shows, in fact I think I stayed in pajamas all day.

Monday it was time for a fondue party! It was the first time that I've made fondue and I must say, both the chocolate and cheese turned out to be delicious.

Tuesday was time for shopping with my friend Milena. She picked up a great pair of heeled grey suede booties. I didn't buy any clothes but I did get a bar of chocolate with thyme in it. It was interesting, and good to add to my collection, but I probably wouldn't buy it again.
