Beer Pong and Bruises

My baby brother was in town for the weekend, which meant family drinking last night. I've cut way back on my drinking the last few weeks, so my tolerance isn't what it used to be. With that being said, I may or may not have been running around my sister's house naked last night when my brother body slammed me into a pile of leaves. All I know is there were leaves in odd spots this morning and I have a few bruises. I was out of control last night.
My main injury last night came during a game of beer pong. I like to pretend that I'm good at it, but really I suck. I have no depth perception to begin with. Alcohol really doesn't help that any. Basically I end up hoping that my sister in law, who is always on my team, does really well and that I can distract my brother and Andy by dropping my pants right before they throw the ball. I play dirty.
Anyhow, at one point about halfway through the game, and after multiple beers and a shot of know how drunk I was if I did a shot of jager btw...the ball missed the table and went behind me.
My sister has a light fixture that hangs very low, but the dining room table is always beneath it, so you can't really hit your head on it. Well, we were using said table last night for beer pong, and it was in the middle of the living room. I turned and started to run after the ball, and hit my head on the marble and indescript metal of the light fixture.
Had I not been drinking so much, it probably would have hurt a lot more. The fact remains that I actually started to laugh so hard, that I couldn't stand. Everyone saw it happen, and saw me laying on the floor with blood coming from my head, and got kind of concerned. I assured them I was alright, and after a quick stop in the bathroom to grab some toilet paper to hold against my head, finished the game of beer pong. We lost, but I wasn't going to let something as trivial as a head injury keep me from trying to win. Unfortunatly, I think I may have a concussion right now. I should probably ice it, but I just don't feel like it. It will eventually heal on its own.

I Do Know Why

I over react to a lot of things. It sucks, but that's just the way I am. Even when I know someone is joking around, certain things piss me off, and I don't find them funny. I have my reasons for it, believe you me. However, I don't want to put myself in certain situations, knowing that I had to deal with that kind of crap when I was younger. I don't think many people understand that, which is why I have problems with certain things. Yes, I'm being vague, but I'm trying to be. I'm just frustrated because it isn't fair that I feel the way I do sometimes, and expect people to understand, when I know they don't. Whatever, I suck at life.

First Impressions

I suck at first impressions. They're too much pressure for me, and inevitably, I end up making an ass of myself. The good thing is that I know I'm going to screw up at some point, so I can prepare myself.
Yesterday, I met Andy's family for the first time. I literally couldn't sleep on friday night because I was so nervous. His mom just got engaged, and was moving in with her soon to be husband. Andy and I were helping them move. I drove the Blazer on the first trip to the new house. I forgot to mention that it was going to need more gas before we could make the second trip.
Poor Andy, about 2 miles from the new house, he ran out of gas. He had noticed that we were almost out of gas earlier on, but at that point, we had already passed all the gas stations, and just were going to hope for the best. See, the new house is out in the middle of nowhere. Turns out, we didn't get so lucky.
After turning a corner, the car stalled out. Andy had to call his dad to let him know we had run out of gas, and of course to point out that we ran out because I'm stupid and forgot to say anything before we left...those weren't really his exact words, but the story is more interesting if I tell it like that.
So much for me looking like a responsible person. Luckily for us, we hadn't actually ran out of gas. Because the gas level shifted when we turned, it caused the car to stall out. We were able to make it all the way to the house and use a gas can to get to a gas station. From now on, when I need to make a first impression with somebody, I'm going to make sure it's under circumstances where I don't have to move or talk.

This makes me happy

Good thing People Magazine sends me emails about star's updates. This made my whole day worth getting out of bed for.

Kelly Clarkson is putting her tour back on track.

After scrapping the summer version due to poor ticket sales, Clarkson will instead hit North American arenas with special guest Jon McLaughlin, beginning Oct. 10 in New York, PEOPLE has learned. Shows are set through Dec. 3 in Nashville.

It's been a tumultuous couple months for Clarkson, 25, who recently fired her manager and shelved her summer tour after a public clash with Clive Davis over the direction of her latest album, My December, the first disc she co-produced and wrote entirely.

Fans who have tickets for the canceled dates are eligible for a special Ticketmaster code for the new shows; details are available on Clarkson's Web site.
