OMG-- Kentucky knocks off No. 1 LSU in 3-OT thriller!!!!!

I know none of you really care, but I can't help it! This is AMAZING news! For too long, the University of Kentucky football team has been the laughing stock of the SEC and our favorite saying here was "just wait until basketball season". So this is nothing short of SHOCKING!!

UK beats #1 LSU

Andre' Woodson's seven-yard touchdown pass to Steve Johnson in the third overtime and a defensive stop by the Wildcats led 17th-ranked Kentucky to a 43-37 victory over No. 1 LSU.

The victory was Kentucky's first over the nation's top-ranked team since 1964 when they defeated Mississippi.

Thinking and Wishing

First, thanks to grey853 for the virtual gift!! *hugs*

As seen on soar38's lj

What's one thing you really wish for at the moment?

I wished for a different life. One that would make me well, happy, insured and flush. One that would give me my mom back and see my dad well. One that wouldn't leave me feeling alone and filled with constant worry and depression. One like I used to have years ago.

Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with you head in the clouds
And you're gone

And for any who are wondering, I'll be heading out of town again tomorrow to deal with dad and hopefully, his release from the hospital. That's when the real work begins. And on top of all this--I think he's just sold his house.
