Monday, June 19 (Josh's Journal - 2006)Go Back
Welcome to Memphis. We arrived this morning and it felt like a sauna at 8 o'clock in the morning. The goal for today was to learn some new drill and new music and make it look and sound good for tomorrow. And we accomplished that, in 200% humidity weather. Despite the weather we got a lot better today and like most days, we got stronger. Last nights bus ride was long and it only got longer. I think at some point we got lost and waited for a bus 3 to catch up, then waited on the bus for little bit while they figured out the housing situation inside. But, the nice thing was we got lots of floor time after a long night of sleep on the bus. I woke up three or four times thinking it was time to get up and it wasn't. I'd rather wake up and it not be time to wake up then miss the wake up call. The ongoing nightmare is missing the wake up call and being "that guy." And we had a visit from last year's diary guru, Drew Solomoson. He's working with Memphis Sound this summer and since we're in Memphis he came by to say hello...and his girl friend marches here still. Anyway, it's weird being an age out this year and looking around the gym, not seeing a lot of the familiar faces I'm used to. But it's ok, that's how it goes.
I know the showers usually get scores and a short comment, but today is an exception. The showers were amazing. Maybe the best I've had...ever. The pressure was great, they were private (which is a pre-req for Box 5), the temperature control was immaculate, and the locker room was carpeted. Best ever. And not only did we have great showers, we had a nice cold gym which is great to come to after a long hot day in the Memphis weather.
B-fast/Lunch: Chicken strips, bagels, cereal, fries...this was the oddest breakfast ever
Dinner: Baked potato...with all the fixins'
Shower score: Box 5...score 99.975, there can't be that many more better showers out there
Show score: 73.5, potential show score
Quote of the day: "J.T. you look like you're the next contestant on The Price is Right, c'mon down." Michael Floyd to J.T in the rifle line...because, you see when it's windy outside, the rifle throw a toss, and run after it with their arms in the air...like they're in The Price is Right, get it haha...
Shout out: This goes out to Zach Perry's dad, Tony.
Until tomorrow, have a good night Regiment fans.
