Archery and nope no books today..

I seem to be posting less and less about books and more and more about archery. Alas I'm not reding much these days.
But I did score 175 in archery today. The center ring of the target is worth nine, I hit 9 of those while we were scoring as well as three before we started scoring. I only hit my arm with the string once. So things are definately looking up.
My partner shot a 173 so we're doing really well. Considering the one guy is still hitting pavement. I feel bad for him I really do. I used to hit pavement while everyone else (including him) was hitting the target. I think he needs to go back to a recurve bow rather than the compound type I shoot with.
I really love archery, did I mention that? Enough that I might survive the next year without any new books at all and get my parents to get me a bow, some arrows and a target for Christmas and my birthday.
For the first time in my life I'm looking forward to gym class. And not because of a cute guy either. Just because I like it. I'm scared. Scared for my sanity. I'm supposed to hate all sports except hockey and that's only because of Emerson Drive....

Mmm. I love archery. As long as you're not dependent on archery to eat, just have fun!

I don't really know what that means but it sounds impressive!

I keep my I-don't-do-sport-ness by maintaining that archery doesn't count as one. (Not that I've done any in years anyway.) As long as you don't think about it too hard it works. =)

What's the connection between Emerson Drive and hockey?

Lolz, I love Emerson Drive. Which is currently three hot Canadians and two not so hot ones and a bass player who isn't really a member of the band as yet.
They (for the most part) like Montreal Canadiens hockey. So I checked it out. Now I love hockey.
Technically archery is a sport. An olympic sport, so I don't think we can legitimately use that...

BTW Emerson Drive is a band....
My love for them is quickly being overshadowed by their horrid treatment of fans....
