I know...I know...

November 8th, 2005 (05:07 pm)

I haven't updated lately and I'm sorry. And this one is gonna be short and sweet because I gotta catch a plane in less than 2 hours. And D's already ready to go.

We're going to CT to do a charity thing. The best part is that Swin's meeting us there. I can't wait to see her! And I get a whole week of Diana and Swin together. What could be better than that?

D and I did the SuperShow for UConn and it was a blast. The team is really trying to gel...I just hope they get it together. And there are two of them who better get their shit together or face the wrath of D!!! And you know who you are!

Alright I have to go before Diana starts screaming in Spanish.

All-WNBA..it never gets old, but I am.

September 23rd, 2005 (03:39 pm)

I made the All-WNBA first team. It feels really, really good. A lot of the media asks me if this gets old, and let me tell you quite emphatically...NO!!!! And to have her with me to accept the award was priceless. There was a lot of celebrating to be done and now that it's all over, we've got a lot of promoting to do. I'm looking forward to it, though. Our schedules seem to be meshing pretty well and that's always a plus. Even when I get down about all the crap I have to do, just knowing she's there with me gives me the energy boost I need.

I also got the Cascade Dish and Assist award. I'm glad someone notices how many times I pass the ball off. I just wish Coach would pay attention and not keep harping on me about it.

Another energy boost comes from the chocolate chip cookies I just made. Good lord, I've missed my oven!!!

Are we there yet?

cheerful

~i feel~: cheerful

I know, I know. I have been putting all the old stuff in here and none of the new stuff. I'm sorry! I'm having trouble finding time to put down my old diary entries...and those, to me, are the important ones. But because I'm not in the playoffs this year (don't get me started, okay?) I seem to be TWICE as busy as I would be if I were playing!!! Do not misunderstand--the exposure's good for the league and the money doesn't hurt a bit, but I have to be away from the ones I love and that kind of stings a bit. Nothing new though, right?

I'm planning on writing a little more in here about Russia and when I'm leaving and some of the other details. Right now, though, I've got to get ready for tonight's playoff games. :) I refuse to state who I'm cheering for. Refuse.

She's home!!!!!!!!!!

December 29th, 2000 (09:33 pm)
sleepy

~i feel~: sleepy

I picked D up at the airport. She ran into my arms and it was just like one of those reunions you see in movies or on those reunion shows like Oprah does.

We cried and laughed and she kissed me in the parking garage and it was wonderful to have her back! I didn’t even feel the cold outside!

When we got into my car she begged me to wait a minute and just kiss her a while because she missed me so much. I was more than happy to! We kissed for about 15 minutes and then I said we had to go because if we stayed longer it was gonna cost more! : )

She had a severe case of jetlag because before we were out of the parking garage good, she was snoozing! I brought her back to my house, unloaded her bags and then unloaded her! I helped her into the apartment and then into bed and that’s where she’s been ever since!

I made dinner, but she didn’t want it. I’m going to let her sleep it off because tomorrow’s Tennessee and we NEED her ready!

She says, “Fuck ‘em! Bring ‘em on!” But she doesn’t know what a challenge they are! Every year one of coach’s resolutions is to beat Tennessee every time we have to meet them. That’s how important it is.

Sleep, my baby. You’re going to need your rest.

I love you,

D COMES HOME TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you tell I’m a little excited?????? : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) : )

I just got off the phone with her. I had to call and get her flight information! She sounds really excited too, so don’t think I’m the only crazy one, ok?

I pick her up at 4:15pm tomorrow! YAY! I want to hurry up and fall asleep and sleep really late so that when I wake up, it’s time to shower and get ready to go and get her!

I can’t wait to have her back here. I missed her SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!

Wow…who would have thought at the beginning of this school year that a scrawny little freshman would have this junior wrapped around her finger?? : )

I love her!

Awwwwwwwwwww MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!

loved

~i feel~: loved

Diana Taurasi is the best girlfriend EVER!!!! She called me yesterday before my family get-together (which was at 9am my time)!! She called at FOUR THIRTY her time!!!!!!!!!! She just wanted to be one of the first to wish me a Merry Christmas! : )

And she told me to look in the pocket of my blue coat. How she knew I was gonna bring my blue coat, I will never know. But I did and there was a Christmas card!!! She’d signed it as if she was giving it to me today, even! : )

It says:

Dear Sue,

Merry Christmas, baby! I wish I could be with you today, but we have to do our separate family things, you know. Maybe next year I’ll go home with you and the year after that you can come home with me and the year after that, we’ll make everyone come to US! How’s that sound to you? : )

Know that I love you and I miss you and I wish you were under my tree wearing nothing but a bow and a smile! : )

Merry Christmas, baby... I love you.
D


Isn’t she the SWEETEST thing??????????????????????????????????? God I love her!

Merry Christmas!!!!!!

Home with mom

December 24th, 2000 (11:14 pm)
cold

~i feel~: cold

I made it to moms just fine. D called me and we talked for a long time. It’s weird hearing her voice and not seeing her. And even weirder knowing she’s thousands of miles away! Makes me incredibly sad.

But something tonight did make me very happy! Before we got off the phone she said, “I love you.” And I said, “Are you alone?” And she said, “Nah, my sister’s in here.” I said, “Does she know you’re talking to me?” She laughed and said to her sister, “Hey, Jess. I’m talking to Sue Bird and I love her, okay?” And I heard Jess say, “Duh. You’ve been talking about her all damned day!”

It’s SO COOL that her sister’s okay with D being gay!!!!! I mean, I didn’t think she wouldn’t be, but… I don’t know. I guess it never really crossed my mind what her family would think. But the automatic assumption (which, I know, you shouldn’t make assumptions) is that they wouldn’t approve. My mom doesn’t care, she just wants me happy. But I just always assumed that my mom was special like that.

There I go, making assumptions all over the place, huh? I’m going to sleep! Santa’s gonna come soon!!!!!! : )

Tears, tears, tears

December 23rd, 2000 (06:17 am)
crushed

~i feel~: crushed

Okay, the saddest thing in the world is watching Diana Taurasi board a plane headed home with tears in her eyes because she wants to stay with me and knowing I have to MAKE her go.

I haven’t stopped crying since she disappeared around the corner of the walkway. I don’t think I’ll stop crying until she walks back around the corner of the walkway and into my arms. And even then the tears will only change to tears of joy instead of sorrow!

I should pack but I can’t do anything. I’m going to bed.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

December 21st, 2000 (02:19 am)
exhausted

~i feel~: exhausted

D came over last night and we exchanged presents. I had no idea what to get her!!! So I got her a CD and some warmer socks. And tickets to a concert. She was sooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited about all of it! She almost cried over the socks! She put them on right then and there and “modeled” them for me!

She got me a cap that says, “CaliGirl”. And this really, really, really soft and warm blanket!! It’s soooooooooooooooooooo nice! And it’s Husky Blue! : ) And then she said the last gift was the “big mushy one”. I was like, “Oh god, is this a sex toy?” And she busted out laughing so hard she almost peed on herself!

It was a phone card so I could call her in Cali. It’s got 1,000 minutes on it and she joked that it might last us until Wednesday. She leaves on Saturday and won’t get back until Friday!!!!! : ( This makes me very sad.

I’ll be in New York Sunday through Wednesday, but that’s gonna leave me all alone on Thursday and most of Friday! Everyone else isn’t coming back until Saturday morning or afternoon before the game! Even though they KNOW it’s Tennessee!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After we exchanged presents, we made love on the living room floor on the blanket she got me. It was wonderful. When we were done, she picked me up, and I grabbed the blanket, and she brought me in here to sleep. I slept for about 30 minutes and I had to pee!

Now I’m lying here writing and watching her sleep. She’s naked still. I can see the top half of her body because she’s lying on her back and the blanket’s down around her waist. I’ve got a candle burning to see by and it’s flickering over her body in the most seductive way.

God, I wish I could draw!!!! I always do this…find her in the most beautiful moment and wish to goodness I had drawing talent to capture it. Damn.. oh well. I’ll just have to memorize it and keep it with me through the next week.

I’m tired now. G’night.

Christmas with Coach

December 16th, 2000 (11:44 pm)

Coach had his Christmas party tonight. He always has it mid-month because he knows we split up for the holidays when we don’t have games scheduled.

The food was good. Turkey and stuffing (that Shea calls “dressin”) and all the fixings. He tells the team every year that “next year we’re having pizza”. And everyone usually says, “Well make sure you have one with mushrooms” or “Get me a plain cheese one”! As if he’d serve pizza at a Christmas dinner! Whatever!!!!

D, Swin, Mika, and I rode together. D drove. She was pinching me the whole time! Trying to pinch a nipple or my stomach or my arm. And then when we got out of the truck at coach’s house, she ran around the truck and tried to grope me before running up the front steps and into the house! She was being bad all night!

She once pinched my ass while coach was giving his usual tour to the new kids. And I only walked with them because D asked me to! Then, when he wasn’t looking, she shoved me into a bathroom and proceeded to take advantage of me!!!!!!!! No, I didn’t put up much of a fight, but still!! : )

She even tried to put her hand under my shirt DURING the meal!!!!!!!!!! She’s so bad! I’m laughing so hard right now, writing this!

She most certainly keeps me entertained, I can tell you that for sure!!! : )

All in all, it was a fabulous Christmas with Coach.
