i just accomplished one of my all-time sports goals- breaking 200 in a bowling game. i bowled a 203! i have been trying for years to do this, it took 4 strikes in a row in the middle of the game to do it. it was my first game of 4 today- 203, 156, 147, and 169. i bowled in league competition for the second time on wednesday, this time doing well- 135, 148, 181. now that i have broken 200 i need to reach my other athletic goal- running a sub-4 minute mile. :)

it is pouring down rain right now. zambia's rainy season was supposed to be over weeks ago, and we all thought it was, but it has been raining since last night. it is cold rain as well, i love it. supposedly rains this late in the year mean a very cold dry season, which is exactly what i want to hear. i am sick of being hot all the time.

the NBA playoffs start tomorrow, and i am more excited about them than i have been in years. for one, so many new teams made the playoffs, like the grizzlies and nuggets. and two, the pistons have a shot not only to win the eastern conference but the NBA championship. but as long as the lakers or spurs don't win it, i will be very happy with whoever the champion is.
