So Michael's sister is in town for the weekend and we are out and about. Tonight we went to see the Charm City Roller Girls roller derby match. Laugh if you want, but they are awesome! Those girls are rough and they kick ass. We had a good time, tomorrow we are going to the aquarium and a pirate ship ride, Monday we are going to the Orioles game. YAY BASEBALL :) I am excited. This will be my first hearing baseball game with the implant.
Now tonight I heard something I couldn't figure out what it was and it turned out to be a bat! A bat squeaking. I never ever thought I would be able to hear a bat. High pitch, fast moving, and not really able to see. It was cool. Very cool.
I am looking forward to getting the second implant which is month away now, its going to be awesome.
Hope everyone has a good holiday weekend. Mine seems to be going pretty well.

Today Michael and I went to see "Star Trek". I went for two reasons, one I love Star Trek, and two I think Chris Pine is freaking hot! :) This was a good movie, and we saw it in the IMAX which is much much easier for me to hear in with the CI. I guess its the super surround sound they use. I don't care why its just cool to watch a movie and not have to read the captions. The movie was good, the eye candy was good, and then we went shopping. I got some shorts and a shirt, we bought some stuff in Pier One and Michael got some stuff for his computer. All I can say is wow are people in White Marsh nasty! At least they were today. We bought an external hard drive and when it rang up the price was wrong. Michael told the girl the price the tag said and she said " well you can go get the sticker and bring it over. Next!" I was amazed. I always thought that would be her job, although from the looks of her, she hasn't moved very much to get anything recently. The best part of it was when she saw us coming back with it, she closed the register she was on and moved to a different one. I told him I would have complained to the manager, he let it go. Oh well, she better hope I don't go there soon. Avoid Lacey at the White Marsh Best Buy. :) Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Ok I am going bi lateral on June 23 YAY. I am excited. Very very excited. I am doing good with the one, so I want to try two out. :) Yesterday was the CI recipient picnic hosted by Johns Hopkins. Very cool! I met some nice people, it was so cool to be around a ton of other people who had the implants on, they were in age ranges from two to 80! It was sweet. I hope that anyone who sees this and was here will email me and tell me. I would love to meet up with some locals and make new friends in the area that can relate to this journey. I also went to see my niece last weekend so I am posting the customary baby pics at the end of this, hope you enjoy!
