July Run Down

July has been a busy, quick month for me. Time for a quick run down of what’s been going on since I haven’t been able to post.

I had nothing planned for the fourth until about 2 days before. I ended up grabbing some hotdogs with afriend and seeing fireworks at the Country Club. We were planning on going downtown to dance at a jazz club that I had never been to and then the IBS kicked in. We jumped back in the car and headed back to the house to grab some medicine. The night did not just end at that, we went back to his house and had a relaxing evening with his family. I was a little disappointed because I did not have my camera on me as the fireworks went off though I did take this picture with my iPhone.

My birthday was on the seventh. I decided instead of having a party or a get together I would celebrate with my mom, especially since it’s going to be my last birthday at home.

Then came beach planning. I went to the coast to visit an ex-boyfriend and his family, while being nervous it went very well and I had a blast. It’s always good to catch up and reminisce with old friends. From there I went to my best friends beach house where he, his friend and I had a relaxing vacation time together. (Pictures // Videos)

Once I got home it was time to start work on switching my blog from Cathryn101.wordpress.com to here at CathrynGray.com. I will also mention finding the papers to change my name, which I will being doing today. =]

I hope everyone’s had an exciting July!

Videos from the Beach

Obviously I haven’t been posting recently, I’ve been off on a beach excursion and I have had extremely limited internet connection the whole time. I thought I’d share the videos I have first. 🙂

Vodpod videos no longer available.

School procrastination led me to creating CAFAvids.com

About 4 months ago I ran across Kevin Nalts website looking for Revver information, and I found his own rendition of an online video site at CubeBreak.com. Cube break was made by Nalts for those at work to get away from what they’re actually supposed to be doing by providing humorous videos to watch. After looking around I then found his video on how to make your own online video site. I said to myself, “Eh, that’s easy.. I could do that in 2 seconds”. I tried to just throw some videos on a page and be done with it, but I couldn’t persuade myself to publish something that looked like videos on a blank page. It hurt my feelings not to have any kind of structure. After that I still thought about it, but moved on to other things…….

Until last night, or about 10 hours ago, I found myself procrastinating from doing school. Instead of messing around with pictures, going to the pool, watching a movie or TV I was making my own online video site powered by Revver. I decided to choose CAFA = Cute and Funny Animal videos due to my passion and love for them. Who can resist a little puppy wrestling with her brother, or a sleepy kitten? I know I can’t.

The website it… drum roll please… CAFAvids.com

Well I hope you enjoy! I’m off to get a little rest after my all night 10 hour excursion into video site land. 🙂

The Diet Coke and Mentos Videos

Wow, I saw these videos a while back. It was very interesting what a bottle of diet coke and mentos could do together. Then due to EepyBird.com it became a phenomenon. I thought I’d list a couple of the videos that I found very interesting for your viewing pleasure! (Click on the thumbnail to see the video)

– The Original, consisting of 101 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke and 500 Mentos mints.

– The Domino Effect, consisting of 251 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke and 1,506 Mentos mints.

– Experiment #144: Super-Soaking Fountain, which consits of 180 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke and over 1,000 Mentos mints.

And how about the ones that didn’t work?
