Civil War

28 Nov


This is not a history lesson.

Yesterday Ty and I attended the annual meeting of in-state rivals known as the Civil War: the Oregon Ducks vs. the Oregon State Beavers. It was an unseasonably beautiful day and my vitamin D deprived-body soaked in some much needed rays of sunshine. I guess that’s why they claim “it never rains in Autzen Stadium.” Though I know for a fact that is a lie.

Anyway, the war was pretty one-sided given that Oregon State is terrible. Also, the Badgers were playing for their division title, and Autzen is a black hole for cell/data reception, so we hopped on our bikes early to catch the end at home.

It looks like we could be seeing a Wisconsin/Oregon Rose Bowl…and if that is the case we will be hosting a Sconnie-themed party with Miller beer, brats, and cheese. I just hope our new friends/Duck fans don’t get too offended when we start the asshole chant. On Wisconsin!

This year marked the first Thanksgiving not spent with my family. Though I’m sad I missed the first of possibly many at my sister’s house, I did get to spend it with some of my new friends in Eugene. There was lots of food, football, and a refreshing after-dinner walk. All in all, a great day with great people.

And, in the spirit of the holiday, I am thankful for:

  1. Family. Cliché but true. My family is the best and I can’t wait to see them in less than a month!
  2. My domestic partner (according to the University of Oregon). I’m so proud of him for pursuing his dream and love being on this adventure together. Also, he brings me white soda when my tummy hurts after a night of $1 beers.
  3. Technology. Just got my new iPhone 4S and I’m loving it…especially after using a Go Phone for the last three months. It also allowed me to see my family’s faces on Thanksgiving. FaceTime is awesome.
  4. My friends. Again, cliché, but I love them. New ones, old ones, silver, gold, and all that…they’re great.

I’ve been meaning to start a blog for  a long time now (the proof is in my WordPress dashboard…three abandoned blogs later, here we are).

I’ve been in my new home of Eugene, OR for three months, and now that I’m settled, I’m ready to let the world in on the adventures of Whitbull. Let’s do this.
