I spent all day Saturday (15 hours!) filming the season finale of Friday Night Lights. Unlike our usual shoots, this one involved nearly 2000 people and some pretty windy weather. We arrived at Memorial stadium bright and early for our 8:00 A.M. call time and proceeded to wait in line for nearly 45 minutes to check -in. We made a mad dash through wardrobe, grabbed breakfast and headed out to the very bright, very chilly morning.
For the next 12 hours we watched the same plays being filmed from every possible angle. We cheered, we booed, we tried desperately to stay warm.
At the end of the night, as the lights went out on Panther football for another season, all that remained was a little blue paint.

1. I can quote every moment of Steel Magnolias. Seriously, I'm like a one woman show and sometimes don't even realize I'm doing it. I can slip it into every conversation. I love it more than my luggage.
2. I stay up all night looking through blogs I find by hitting the "next" button on blogger. I once found a blog of a guy who took a photo and wrote descriptions of his outfit each day. I also find a lot in languages I don't understand.
3. I make random lists all day long. "Things to make for Christmas", "Songs to download for my i-pod", "Recipes to try", "Craft Projects to create", "Hit lists", "The best 80s albums", "TV shows to record", "favorite paint colors", etc. I keep them on post-it notes in my desk at school.
4. I can't write with plain wood/graphite pencils. I've tried. They creep me out. I can use mechanical pencils, but no # 2 Ticonderoga for me!
5. I ate Lucky Charms for three months while I was pregnant. Every. Single. Meal. My brother worked at a grocery store and I would have him bring boxes by on his way home from work. I haven't eaten them since.
6. I have shoes in my closet I have never worn. I look at them all the time. I move them around to different boxes. I even put them on my feet. But they have never left the house. I know I have a problem, but I think they are happier sitting on my shelf than they were sitting on the department store shelf.
7. I used to rodeo. Like Rocky Mountain Jeans rodeo. Growing up I had a horse (for 4-H) that I took to a couple of shows and another that I rode in play days. During one barrel race my cinch broke and the saddle slipped underneath the horse. I fell off and the horse stepped on me. I did not get back on for a while.

- This is the first time in history that the two main opponents in the general election are both sitting Senators. The last time a Senator was elected President was John F. Kennedy in 1960.
- Our next president will become the first to be born outside the Continental United States! Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and John McCain was born at Coco Solo, Panama Canal Zone, a U.S. naval base.
- This is the first election in which the Vice President is not a candidate for either the presidency or the vice presidency since Nelson Rockefeller in 1976.
- Barack Obama and John McCain are 24 years and 340 days apart in age. This is the biggest age difference between the two major party presidential candidates in U.S. history!
- McCain would be the first president from Arizona, while Obama would be the third president elected from Illinois…the first two being Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant.
Who doesn't want a chance to be a part of history? If you're still one of those undecided voters (you procrastinator, you) Check these links for some questions to help you make your choice.
No matter the outcome for today's election, it will have an impact on you. Why not do something about it? V-O-T-E!
