Q: Why are elephants large, grey and wrinkled? A: because if they were small white and smooth, they'd be asprins

I slept in this morning until 11:00am. I am such a slacker. I suppose i have a good enough excuse. Toni said she did something to Joe that she can't say, because it's some sort of surprise. I'm wondering if she shaved his head. then we'd get to see how big a violinists head REALLY is! Ha! Just kidding. we know we all need violinists in the orchestra. who else would we make fun of?

I think my cat is going to die. He has stopped eating, and howls constantly. My dad bought some special cat food and medicine, but he's still not eating very much. But it's ok. Death never bothered me that much. and I've had this cat my entire life, so I guess he deserves a break.

Poo. The viola identical to mine on ebay I'm bidding for, sold for $194 buckeroos. My max bid is $50. oh well, there are three more just like it, and no one has upped my bid since yesterday. hopefully I win. It's such a pretty viola!

My stupid neighbors(except you Tony) mow their lawn early in the morning before the rest of the world is awake. especially on saturdays. he even built a dog house a while ago, hammer saw and all, and woke up my whole family. can you say ANNOYING! I must go beat him with a wet noodle.

Michael just gave me Harry potter 3, shrek 2, and Hidalgo. he makes them into CD's off the internet, watches them, and gives them away. he's going to get caught one of these days, but for now, I'm enjoying the benefits. bwa ha ha.

This is for Michelle and Toni. since joe has such easy finals, this wouldn't apply to him. Keep in mind these finals while taking your own. It should make you feel a teeny bit better. Be glad yours are so easy.

We must believe in free will. We have no other choice."

At work today, I dusted and vacuumed behind the pipes of the organ. The organ in the conference center is HUGE compared to the tabernacle one. I also got my security card and keys that open the temple gates, and the front door to the conference center. Feel the power. For some reason, blogger is double spacing everything. I have no idea what this will look like when published. Once again, thank you Toni for your "ode to nice girls" post. very touching. I found a guy's version of it online. I like his too. On to bigger and better things.

I have to go back to the twtching lady for a new parking pass. you know, the one who almost sliced off my arm? refer to my blog entitled "lost" if you are clueless. quite entertaining for those of the simple minds. Anywho, I have to go verify my new ID card. I know I'm going to get lost, and I know the lady will do something unexpected that will freak me out again. I'm quite nervous to go back down the secret elevator. who knows what will happen this time.

I had beef and barley soup for dinner. Barley looks like oversized weevils. Kind of disgusting.

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror. There are teachers, and then there are educators.

Ah, custodians. gotta love em. I never thought I'd be one, but It pays money, and I get to work in a church environment. So Michelle, be happy to work at chick-fil-a, It's money, and something to keep you busy. I really should go to bed. have to babysit in the morning. actually in five hours to be exact. tootles.

Adults are always asking kids what they want to be when they grow up because they are looking for ideas

Wow, I can't believe I haven't updated since thursday. That's really long for me. We just got an e-mail from Michelle(my sister) and she told us she had frog for dinner. yum yum :P She also said she saw a dog being cooked at a neighbors house. that is just wrong.
My mom was tralking to our Relief society president today about my brother Michael. My parents are really starting to worry about him. He plays computer games ALL day. He does absolutely nothing else with his life and has been doing this for almost five years. Our relief society pres said she would pray that he would give up the computter. You are never going to believe this, tonight my sister tripped the circuit breaker by plugging in too many things, and it fried my brothers computer. It won't work anymore. Can you say answer to prayer?! That was amazing to me. It's probably just the power supply fried, and easily repaired, but still. pretty amazing.
I made chicken quesadiias tonightt for dinner. They were SSSOOOO good and everybody loved them. I have to make them for you all some time. I gave my kitty a bath today because he was all greasy and stinky. Poor thing. he didn't howl at all this time. he just sat patiently while being shampooed to death. My poor old kitty.
I went to church today! Yes, such a simple thing to do, but I always dread going. I must get over that. sometimes Satan knows exactly where to push my buttons for temptation. GRRR! But I went. despite only having a few hours of sleep, I was determined to go today. It wasn't so bad, I kept dosing, but managed to get a lot ouyt of all the lessons today. very glad I went.
hmmm. I can't think of anything else interesting to write, but I'm still in the mood to write. da de da de da de da de da de da de da de da de da de da de da de da de da de da.
I've really come to like my job. I've only been theere a week, but now I don't get lost, and know all the people real well. The work is ok too. not that I love cleaning and mopping and such I don't mind coming to work - I just don't want to stay when I get there. That's why I've always wanted to be a stay at home mom. I'd love cleaing my own house, raising kids, and doing things for my family. That's my chapter in life I can't wait for. Oh well. it'll be a while. Speaking of, Angela is getting married! It is so wierd! Just the other day we were all worrying about the ACT and graduation, now we are going off to college and getting married. Her poor husband though. Angela only knows how to make toast. that is the extent of her cooking abilities. I'm sure they will be eating out a lot. That's where my husband is lucky in the wife depratment. I can cook anything and everything. My momm started teaching us girls how to cook before we could walk. my first word was probably spatula. that's how i broke my collar bone too. My mom was cooking a pie, and i wanted to see how to do it, so i pulled up a chair to watch, fell off, and landed on my shoulder and broke my collare bone. But I learned how to make pie crust! so it was worth it.

Rebecca broadbent is back in magna for the week. we are going to hang out all week and catch up up some. She is going back to Idaho for school in the summer, so, I won't get to see her then either. who would voluntarily go to school in the summer? beats me. Anyway, we are going to practice some of our old songs. I miss playing in Moore's room during lunch all the time. She taught me almost all the fiddling songs i know. I miss all of my old friends. Whitney Moore better plan a good reunion.

Well, I should be off to bed now. oh, and Tony, you are a good man, but you are one of my friends, so it's different. you don't count. sorry. :) Tootles

You should stay away from your potential, you know. It's alot like your bank balance - you always have alot less than you think

I opened up a container of yogurt for breakfast this morning, and under the lid it said "Please Try Again" because they were having a contest I was unaware of. But I thought I might have opened the yogurt wrong...or maybe Yoplait was trying to inspire me. "C'mon, Rebecca, don't give up. Please try again." A message of inspiration from your friends at Yoplait. Fruit on the bottom, hope on top. Why doesn't every food company have little contests like Yoplait does?

I slept in until 1pm this....afternoon. I guess that'ss what I get for blogging until three am. I bought this gunormous bag of gummy bears for our BBQ, and keep nibbling on them. They are making me quite sick. I must save the rest for you guys. It's very gloomy today. I feel like watching TV and eating some soup while in my PJ's. I just don't feel like doing anything. And of course I'm dreading work again. It's not so bad once I get there, but the agony of knowing I have to go is what gets to me.

My sister gets home from school in fifteen minutes. Maybe she'll entertain me. I'm bored stiff today. I just re-read Joe's blog from sunday because he never updates, and he got me thinking about the whole shaving thing. It's been years siince I cut myself shaving. Why do girls shave their legs and armpits anyway? who started this tedious tradition? and why do men have facial hair? what is the point. I would guess only 5% of american males acually have facial hair. Some things in life I have yet to fully comprehend. ooh, that was a smart sounding sentence. yay.

Poor athiests. I stumbled upon one of their websites, and this was the heading for it. " Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky, and he has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these things he will send you to a place full of fire, and smoke, and burn and torture forever and ever 'till the end of time.... but he LOVES you. And he needs money." Kind of funny.

There are easier things in life than finding a good man. Nailing jell-o to a tree for instance.

I must go take a bath and shave and redo my nails. all for the sake if mankind. If it was all women on the earth, I wouldn't really care. I must keep in mind all the security guards at work though. Enjoy your day my fine feathered friends.

If only my life were that easy Posted by Hello

My new job(that I hate): part two

It's 1:40am, I just got back from work. Do you all want to know what I did for the last four hours? Do you really want to know?! Fine, I'll tell you. I vacuumed the EXACT carpet I vacuumed yesterday. I emptied garbage cans that had only one tissue, or piece of paper in it, because they were the same cans I emptied yestarday. I dusted the same desks I dusted yesterday which had absolutely NO DUST! What a freaking waste of time! The only thing keeping me at this job is the security guards. I'm totally serious. They have me do jobs that don't need to be done until the next week! It's like washing a pair of pants, then as soon they are clean, you throw them back in the washer. totally pointless. I am getting paid 8.17/hr to vacuum clean carpets. It drives me nuts!

On to bigger and better things. My room is almost clean. It has been months since you could see the floor. I used to always have a perfectly clean room. It looked like Joe's did when I last saw it. I even used to evenly space my hangers in my closet, and iron my blankets. No, I'm not joking. but lately the slob in me has surfaced. But now I'm getting back on track. Then I won't be ashamed for people to see my room. (wahoo)

I put my hair up all nice and pretty today, and did my makeup(it's been a while) and I didn't see a single security guard today. kind of depressing. Oh, whoever wrote the"annonomous" comment(Toni, or Tony) (well possibly Joe, but not Michelle, she's too normal for that) you are wierd. Please do come and kill me though, I have nothing going for me at the moment.

I was quite hungry on the way home from work, and the only place that is open downtown is Wendy's. I got a chicken strips meal that was totally not worth it. The chicken was quite disgusting as a matter of fact. the fries will end up making me sick tonight, and the fruit punch probably stained my teeth red. What a waste a five bucks. I shouldn't buy fast food anymore.

Yikes. I just felt my legs, and they are hairier than bigfoot. And all my fingernail polish is cracked and falling off. Since I know I'll be sore tomorrow, I'm going to take a humungo bubble bath, manicure and pedicure, and some serious shaving. It's not capri or short season, so I kind of neglect my legs in the shaving category. Does anyone else hate the hair on your big toe? It drives me NUTS! I always shave it off, because I did it once, and it always grew back blacker than black. My little sister Rachel shaves her arms. What a weirdo. her arm hair isn't even dark. It's blonde. My sister is funny though. She'll be cooking something, and turn on the radio to classical 89. I'll walk into the kitchen and she'll be conducting the song that's on as if she were there. and If she's listening to oldies, she'll start dancing around the room. I have an unusual sis.

I can play another song on my guitar! I know chords and such, but I'm teaching myself classical stuff. more fun I think. Plus my guitar is a classical guitar, so it makes sense. just a thought.

I have a plant in my room that is some type of fern, and is about three feet tall. I've been neglecting it a lot in the past few months, and it's very sad looking. I might throw it away if I can't revive all the dead branches.

I'm extremely tired, but am really in the mood to write about everything. Well, actually, nothing, it's all just random thoughts and rambles. My sister left all her junk at my computer. She uses it when I'm gone to do homework. She always leaves the most random stuff. Envelopes, rosin(like she would need that to do homework.) a safety pin, a fork, and a single shoe. I really wonder about my sister sometimes.

Oh, to answer your question Tony about the poop, I mean pope, stuff, He chooses his own name, and i think Joe looks like a Narcissus type of pope. Narcissus, a greek name meaning self-love. :)

Well, I can't really see my computer anymore, my eyes are burning and drying out. I'm sure if I looked in the mirror I'd scream. must be off to bed now. Oh, sorry I wasn't online today to talk to you michelle. I will be on from 10:00-11:00am tomorrow, well today. April 21, 2005. sheesh. off to dreamland once again. tootles to you my friends.

My new job

Wow, my first night as a janitor was last night. You would not believe how big the conference center is! You think the auditorium is big, but when you go where all the offices are, it's like triple the size. There are so many offices and rooms, it is going to take me weeks until I don't get lost. The job is actually really easy. Since I'm new, I have to dust, empty cans, polish wood, and vacuum. Everyone has too much time to get the job done, so they talk to eachother for about half the time, and go exploring together when they are finished. I was shown about six other secret elevators that will take you anywhere. They took me into the security room, so the Security knew who I was. They have a huge map of the entire world, and pictures of where the first presidency and twelve apostles are. they Track them! they know where they are and what they are doing 24/7! next to the first presidency they have an electronic read out that said "sleeping at home". It's crazy! Plus, all the security guys are WAY hot. I think I'm really going to enjoy this job :) I now have a key that will open practically any door on temple square. "Feel the power of the ONE key" All the people that work there are really nice too. We went up onto the roof when we were finished and just sat there for a while. It was so nice and peaceful.

So, tjh world has a new poop. I mean, pope . I'd be glad to become pope just so I could change my name. Ratzinger. Toni and I decided it's evil. maybe it's because he's German, who knows. But now he will become pope benedict the somethingth. Interesting.

Well, all the snow as melted from last night, but it's all windy and cold. I wish spring would hurry up. My friend Cami is moving to New Jersey to become a nanny of all things. We were best friends since we were four. We always planned on going to college together and living together. Then Jr. High came along and she decided to hang out with the wrong people, and we drifted apart. well, more like swam very quickly. thinnking back on your childhood can be sad sometimes. makes me feel even older.

Well, must be off to exercise and shower for the day. tootles to ya.

Monday, April 18, 2005


Today I went to the conference center to fill papers for my job I'm starting tonight. Turns out, The lady I needed to see was at the church office building. No big deal, so i walked across the street and it was sprinkling. actually kind of refreshing. I get to the front desk and their are two old ladies, and I mean old as in order-a-coffin-soon, kind of old. I asked them which room Mona Lisa Wald was in.(that's who my appointment was with.) They looked at me with this blank stare, and then one of them said "the mona lisa is in Italy". Seriously. this lady wasn't trying to be funny, she was serious. I said, "no, a lady that works here has the same name" then they stared a little longer as if they had just been told the world was going to implode within the next five mintues, then the other said they didn't know, and they sat there some more. "Great" I thought, "I'm working with to mental cases who don't have a clue that other humans exist." So I asked them if their was any way they could find out. After fifteen minutes of them trying to figure out how to turn on the computer in front of them, they said "no" again, and stared blankly at me once again. I decided to take things in to my own hands. I left. I went to the south entrance and asked of a very good looking guy behind the desk if he could point me in the direction of human resources. I didn't bother asking if he could tell me which office this lady was in. He took me to a room across the hall, where Mona lisa Wald was waiting wondering why I was twenty minutes late. So, I filled out all the necessary paper work, and had to go down a floor and get my parking permit. I take the elevator down, the doors open and I see a bunch of rooms a cafeteria, and more parking. in one of the rooms,there is this frightful looking lady behind a glass window is working. I notice every once in a while her left eye twitches. I ask her if this is where I get my permit verified, and guess what she does. What else, but stare. I repeat myself thinking she didn't hear me the first time. she nervously snatches the permit out of my hand, mumbles something, and walks away. What kind of people do they hire in the church!? I seriously consider just leaving and quiting my job at that moment, but decide to wait it out, and see if things improve. The twitching lady returns mumbling something as she hands me a bunch of papers and my permit, then quickly slide the glass window shut as I yank my arm out quickly from being sliced off. "Ok, now i can go home and write in my blog what weird people work in the church", I thought. Wait a second, where was I? I remembered I took and elevator, found the elevator and got on. I didn't know which button took me to parking, so i assumed it was the one marked "P". I push the button, start moving, the doors open, and it's parking. Not where I parked though. I wandered around looking for my car for about twenty minutes, realized I was on the wrong level. Find another elevator, the doors close, no other buttons saying "P". So, I press some random button. It took me to this room that was looked like it was deserted fifty years earlier. Probably some hermit man living in one of the boxes in the corner . ok, wrong floor again. new button. Then I realize their are only three buttons on this elevator. The two I already pressed, and another one marked "L". Assuming this was lobby, I press the button. doors slide open and I'm magically outside. I seriously didn't know where I was. No familiar buildings, and last time I was outside, it was raining. now it was snowing. I walk for a while, and realize I'm on temple square. Not where visitors can go, but where they have been doing construction, and by some cafe I didn't know existed on temple square. I was in a secret elevator that isn't meant for anyone but authorities I guess. I have to show it to you guys sometime. I probably went in some secret parking lot, a secret room, and took the secret outside passage to temple square. The church has a whole underground network of spies apparently, and I got a grand tour of their hideouts. I eventually got to my car which was about half a mile from where I got off the secret elevator. How I got that far away, I'll never know. It wasn't scary, more like a learning experience. I'll take all of you on a tour sometime, and maybe we'll find nuclear weapons the church is storing for the CIA. you never know. Well, that was my experience for the day. welcome to the end of today's blog.

Since there is a rule that states "i" before "e" except after "c", wouldn't "science" be spelled wrong?

Today was an average dull day for me. A lot happened, but nothing in the category of life changing. I did my federal taxes earlier this week, and my dad was extremely kind and did My state ones on my birthday. I've been Intaxicated.
I copied about ten CD's onto my computer and then onto my MP3 player. I was getting quite sick of all my music. I borrowed all my siblings CD's too. now I have quite a wide variety. huzzah. I'm listening to Moulon Rouge 2 right now. I got the best of Billy Joel too. I love him! He's actually a musician! He plays the piano amazingly, sings amazingly, and is amazing! I should start using my thesaurus more.
I've been stuffing my face with al the birthday candy I got yesterday. Two bags of hot cheetos, gushers(yum), Milkyways, SOBE, V8(well, that's healthy, I could live off of V8!), and garlic stuffed olives. I'm a garlic freak. I put it on everything. I could eat it raw, but spare my family the smell. I figured it's mmy b-day, I can take a day off from being healthy. I wouldn't want to offend everyone by not enjoying there presents now, would I? Oh! I got an old navy gift card. BIG HUZZAH! I love Old Navy! they have the best clothes. Did you know they are building one on 5600? YAY!
I practiced my viola today for an hour. I have decide on what I'm going to name my daughters. Yes, I recieved inspiration from playing my viola. It happens a lot. Years ago I decide on Vienna and Skye for my daughters, I love those, but have three more to add to my list; ebony, cadence, and echo. Aren't those the coolest names!? I would love to have one of those names. Very musical related names. My sister's middle name s Viola. I'm so jealous. I'll let my husband decide the boys names.
Last night I had a dream that my grandma died, and shortly after my mom died. I woke up crying. a very real dream. I hate those. I was crying for like five mintues afterwords too. I was really sad. Then I picked up my scriptures because they always make e feel better. And what do you know, They made me happy. I checked to make sure my mom was breathing when i walked passed her room this morning. Just to check. I hate those kind of dreams.
I have been growing out my nails for about a month. They haven't been this long in years. Mainly because I couldn't have long nails when playing the viola, So they were always short. I can still play, just not as wide vibrato. They look so feminine and girly. Wahoo.
This is going to be a really long blog. I have to get on the schedule of staying awake until 1:30 so I don't fall asleep on the way home from my New job. And I have nothig else to do but write and surf the net. So enjoy!
Well, still nothing yet on scholarships. After what Michelle told me about budget cuts, I'm not exactly expecting one. But its okay. If I don't get one, I'll have a job long enough that when I do come down to Orem, I'll have a car. That would be really cool. My mom got a pillow with a cute quote on it. "Every life should have nine cats" I totally agree. But you need dogs too, just to mix things up a bit. I'm listening to Billy Joel's "She's always a woman" very pretty song, and I can totally relate to. I sang along with my BYU singers CD today. It ghas been so long sinnce I've really sang. It was hard to hit a D, when at Cyprus i could easily hit an F. I'm definatelt out of practice. I miss Madrigals so much. I love singing.
So, the next BBQ is on Joe's b-day huh? Well, we'll have to throw him in the lake. That would be fun. :)
I just realized I'm actually 19 years old. My grandma was already married at this age, and my mom got married two years later at 21. It is such a scary thing to realize we can get married. We are adults and moving on with our lives. It's so wierd. In one year I will no longer be a teenager. that is frightening. Wow, this song called "lullabye" makes you want to cry. Sounds so longing and sad. Maybe I'm just in a crying mood today. Hormones, gotta love em'.
Moving on, AHHH! This song makes me want to bawl! It is so beautiful! Wow, if some guy would sing this to me and propose after, I wouldn't be able to refuse. So pretty! ;{,,,, that's me tearing up in one eye. OK, have to wait for the song to end until I can think clearly...........................................................................................................ok, it's over. I have a new favorite song. "Lullabye" by Billy Joel.
Wow. I am really emotional right now. this doesn't happen very often. right, get a hold of yourself Rebecca.
Toby is asleep on my bed snoring. So cute. and my kitty Jack is on my chair purring and keeping me company. I couldn't live in a world without animals. It would be so dull. Well except for Michelle, she tries to kill her fish. Animals would be better off without her. You know what is really sad? I have no callusses on my left hand right now. If I do, they are very small. Well, I can't think of much else to write. I'll go write some e-mails to Michelle, Tony, Toni, and Joe. So check your e-mail people!
oh wait, Here is something to amuse you

O.J. Simpson's answer: It didn't. I was playing golf at the time

Happy B-day to me, I really have to go pee.

Ok, Just came back from the bathroom and feel much better. I guess tachnically I'm not nineteen because I wasn't born until 5am. Oh well. same difference.

Just got back from Walmart with my mom, some grocery shopping and b-day shopping, fun fun, exceopt that I know 2/3 of everything I'm getting. Oh! It was so funny tonight. My mom and I were in line to get something to eat at the McDonalds inside Walmart. Three scary looking gangster dudes were standing in line next to us and it was really quiet. All of a sudden my mom gasps and yells," Look at that!" and points up to a sign on the wall. I turned and looked, the three gangster guys turn and look, and even the lady behind the counter looked.We all thought something scared her, or something amazing was on the wall. then my mom," They have Lemon pies now!" Everyone laughed histerically. It was so funny. No one else was in the place, so it echoed forever,"they have lemon pies!" I couldn't stop laughing, and the gangster guys probably thought my mom was nuts for getting so excited over a stupid pie. Just my funnny thought for the day.
Guess what I bought, everyone? I got marshmellows, and chocolate covered graham crackers so we can have smore's at the next BBQ. And I got some metal skewer fork things to cook the marshmellows on. yay. oh, and a frisbee.

well, I suppose I can tell you what I know I'm getting for my birthday so far. A coconut(I love em'), bobby pins(I go through them and lose them like mad, I'm sure Toni and Michelle can relate), My favorite face wash (that costs a billion bucks so I can't afford it), Gushers(of course), and a two hour teeth whitening kit. I have this thing with teeth. It's the first thing I notice on a person. I just love straight white teeth on a guy, makes me week in the knees. Plus it drives me mad when my teeth aren't clean, or if they have a hint of yellow. I always brush my teeth past the two minute requirement, because they still don't feel clean. Maybe I'm just weird, but It's the way I am. Anyway, back to B-day. My little sister is cute. She wanted to get me a piniata(however you spell that) and balloons for my birthday. You just can't have a birthday without balloons. that's my motto. And my parents are taking me to Sizzler for dinner. mmmmmm...........................................Ribs..................................................................*ahem*

My mom and I went peeking through the D. I. today. They have some really cool stuff you can't find anywhere else. We found this book that my mom has wanted forever, but is out of print, so she was all happy. I collect china and antiques and found some cool plates too. They had this piano in the back for $150, It was really dirty, but sounded really good. If I had a spare $150, and a room to put the piano in, I'd buy it. We then went to reams to get eggs which were on sale. I don't really like eggs, so I wasn't that excited about it. My mom ordered my cake at the bakery too. She had me go away so she could surprise me of what was going to be on the cake, when all of a sudden I hear," Hey Ben, do we have any pictures of Violins to put on cakes?!" The girl was yelling halfway across the store to some dude about my cake. So much for surprising me. thanks anyway Mom.

Well Joe, still no letter about scholarships yet. Maybe they'll come today. What a great b-day present that would be. I mean today, because I'm writing at 12:43am, so, obviously the mail hasn't come. I wish they'd hurry up! Unless of course, You've already recieved yours, and are trying to figure out how to break it to me gently that I didn't get one.

I bought a Burger for my brother today from McDonalds, came home to give it to him, when I had the sudden urge to go pee again. I threw the burger in my purse and threw the purse on the couch as I ran to the bathroom. When i was finished(now feeling a sense of calm and relief) I came down to give the burger to my brother. But, the burger wasn't there. I searched high and lo, and It was no where to be found. I walked in to the kitchen and the wrapper was on the floor, spotless, and Toby was next to it with his head down, avoiding eye contact, and his ears flat. Hmm. Now where could the burger have gone? My dumb dog had managed to rumage through my purse without dumping out all the other contents, sneak it into the kitchen and snarf it down, lick the wrapper clean to hide the evidence, and all within the time period of me using the bathroom in a hurry. What would this world be like without dogs, I wonder. I can only imagine.

I will post a post-birthday party blog after all cake has been eaten, and presents given tonight. Unless of course I get a letter about scolarships. then I will ramble on in excitement about how I am finally going to college, and moving out of my Chaotic, yet sometimes boring house, To OREM! I can only hope.

Tootles my fine feathered friends

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

Well, Today was just another average joe kind of day. Not that Joe is average in his ways, just a figure of speach. The dumpsters were dropped off all along the streets again, so my dad stayed home and we cleaned up around the hoiuse and threw away a ton of stuff. My dad checked out my moniter a bit and decclared it officially dead. Oh joy. Today the internet has not been cooporating at all. I aalso tried to install a couple photo programs, and apparently, they aren't cxompatible with Windows XP. What in it's freakin' mind would not be compatible with windows?! So I'm stuck with the ol' boring programs. Today my MP3 player also decided it didn't want to talk to my computer, so I couldn't download my new songs to it. I'm cursed!
On to happier subjects, We had pizza for dinner. I somehow managed to eat hallf a medium pizza. I felt really guilty, until I realized the only other thing I had eaten today was an english muffin. So, I ate an entire days worth of calories in one sitting. I'll be working out extra hard tomorrow.
I filed my federal taxes today. It wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. But, I still have yet to do state. I get back $158 for federal. Huzzah! but alas, I must hold back my need to spend and think of the future. I'll just have to save it to help me move to Orem! My parents really don't think I'm going to move out. well, I am.
Goodness! The wind here is crazy! Things are flying around like crazy and hitting our house. You'd think it was a tornado! It's just a cold fron though. No storm. Well, a wind storm I suppose. Right now I'm listening to Kelly Clarkson's "Low" Kiind of a sad song, but something I can relate to. I love her voice. She can hit all the higher notes in chest and has really good vibrato. Her "S's" whistle though. that kind of drives me nuts.
I have new german neighbors. Well the parents are from germany anyway. They've got a son my age who is quite nice looking. Must brush up on my German skills. "Ich bin ein Berliner" translation: I am a jelly doughnut. Did you know that kennedy actually said that when visiting Berlin? He didn't mean to. He was supposed to say, "I am a berliner" but it ccame out a bit wrong.
Yah, those PJ's I was going to make today?(scroll down if you don't know what I'm talking about. there is a pic) We were working all day so I didn't make them. Humphf. I'm making them tomorrow for sure though. i'm definatel a PJ girl. I actually have a collection. I love nighgowns too. Not something to wear in public, but make you feel so feminine. I'm sure others would agree with me.
Did you know that Angelina Jolie adopted her son? I never knew that. I learned something.........
Ahhh, Beautiful Disaster, another fav song. Oh! I just thought of something! I can get my viola off e-bay with my tax return! It's a sister viola to my sister's viola. (ironic) It has the deepest sound in the lower register. My viola isn't up to College level, so I would feel justified in buying it. Plus, it's the prettiest viola I've ever seen. YAY! I'm happy now.
Well, I should be off to bed so I can get up early to exercise th same time as you guys. Goodnight to the ol' windy world.

The pj's I'm making tomorrow. Wouldn't you like to see me in them! Posted by Hello

I think vegetarians have it all wrong, whats this about being kind to animals, and then stealing their food behind their backs so they can starve?

Today was an extremely good day. Even though it's just 4pm. I went to a job interview at Alorica, which I thought went quite well. oh, Alorica is a computer tech/customer service cneter. I knew all but two answers to the technical questions they asked me. I guess I know a lot more about computers than I thought. When I got home, I called about four people until I got a replacement W2. I lost mine last month and would greatly appreciate my tax return and prefer that the IRS didn't hunt me down. Afterwords The church called and said I got the part time job at the conference center. YAY! I finally have a job! It's part time and 9pm to 1am, so I can get a day job(hopefully Alorica) and I'll have more than enough to move to Orem! HUZZAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, I forgot to mention my part of the day that sucked. My computer moniter is totally and completly DEAD! we will now have a moment of silence............................................................ Stupid machine. My dad said it would probably cost more to fix it than to buy a new one. It just up and died. no reason whatsoever. It was a 14x11 screen too! FLATSCREEN! I am so upset. Right now I am borrowing one of our old ones.(we have about five computers, a million mice, three keyboards, and three moniters just sitting in our house. My dad likes to tinker) it is 12 1/2x 9 1/2. LAMEZOR! It is a 1999 ADI model. IT SUCKS! You can't even adjust the brightness or resolution at ALL! I just bought it last year, so I might be able to get a new one free or cheep. I guess i shouldn't complain though. Not everyone and their dog owns a computer as good as mine. I'm lucky my dad and brother are in the buisness.

My mom is making New england boiled dinner tonight. I like corned beef and potatoes, nut I'm in it for the CABBAGE! I love cabbage to death. it is my favorite veggie. Oh! I just got inspiration for a new song for the band! CABBAGE! they have wanted to do a song about a vegetable forever! I have to go write a song now. I'll post it when I'm done.

Here I am again

I'm am so utterly(moo) and completely bored out of my mind. So, all you lucky people get two blogs in one day. Two! you lucky ducks!(quack) I guess we use animal-like words a lot when we speak and we didn't even know it.
Anywho, I was reading through all the conference talks today because I didn't get to hear all of them. I wrote down this quote, but I can't remember who said it. "Others waste today's time with a disabling fear of tomorrow or a paralyzing preoccupation over mistakes of yesterday. " This is SO me! I put off so much in life for fear it won't come out like I want. I have a huge fear of rejection and dissapointment. This quote made me realize that I am putting off what I want in life because of fear. I guess I need to get over the fear and do what I want and take a risk. Just a thought.
I decided to change my template because I was sick of looking at green and yellow dots. Consider it a new beginning for me, in relation to taking risks in my life. wohoo.
Ok, I am officially going nuts. Joe, if you got your scholarship letter already, call and tell me NOW! I would rather know if I didn't get it early, instead of wait for the bad news. If you haven't gotten yours, I order you and Michelle to go to The teacher(is his name Fulmer? I forget) and tell him to get moving. I'm going crazy!
Today my mom told me if I move out I will miss her and home so much I won't last a week. HA! She also expects to get a letter, once I move out, about how I now realize how much I took her and my dad for granted, and how I was wrong in my teenage ways, and they were right. She expects this letter, because both my brothers sent one home a month into their mission, and my sister just sent one home this week. NOT ME! I already know how much they do for me, and I'm not some stupid teenager who doesnt appreciate all they do, plus, I was a responsible teenager, and will not admit rthat I did anything wrong, because I didn't. SO YOU AIN'T GETTIN' ONE MOM!
*ahem* Now that that's out of my system, on to the rest of my dull life. My suster is moving into my room this week. After sharing a room with her for eighteen years, I finally got my own room last year. Now that my brother and sister are coming home soon, my dad has to finish the basement, and my sister moves in with me. WILL IT NEVER END!? So in my entire childhood, I had my own room(that never had a door) for approximately 10 months. can you say LAMEZOR! Shouldn't a (soon to be) 19 year old female be entitled to her own room? Have my parents heard of the word PRIVACY? I love my sister, but when I shared a room with her, It brought out the beast in me. And it was a big beast. I can not wait to move out.
Well, I think I've rambled on enough for now. If I get bored I'll come back and bore you some more. tootles

Don't forget to scroll down and read the BBQ story if you haven't already. It's in saturday's post

How could I possibly hate Joe?

Ok everyone, I guess I took the whole"I hate Joe" thing too far. It was mainly used to create comedy effect in friday's blog. Just a bit(ok, a lot) of sarcasm. Sorry if I made you upset or worried Joe. Just to everyone knows I love Joe to death. And will"forgive" him of any wrongdoing on the suggestion of Toni. heck, we're getting married for goodness sake, how could I hate my future hubby? even if he is a violinist? I love Joe, I love Joe, I love Joe, I love Joe, I love Joe. There, I counter-acted all the hates. But you can still give me a hug and gushers anyway Joe. :)

oh, I don't know why the dumb blooger posted friday's blog halfway down the page. stupid thing deletes my blogs all the time. I should sue.

The hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread

Let me start off by saying, I hate joe. just read his blog and the comments afterwords. I don't want to talk about it.
On a lighter note, wait, how can a note be lighter? it can be higher, but not lighter, I'll get back to you on that one. Anywho, most of you who read my blog were with me on the BBQ I'm about to expound on, so if you want to, skip over this next pragraph. only if you really feel the need to though.
Oh, did I mention I hate joe?
We, Toni(wait Ton"Y", I can't tell them apart anymore) and Tony, Michelle, joe, ____________________________________________________________and I (didn't want my name on the same line as joe's) went to utah lake and had a BBQ. I even had sausage and didn't get sick! The stars were beautiful and we had an awsome fire thanks to the fire master Toni.(sorry, did it again, Ton"Y") While Michelle and joe made out in the car, Toni, Tony and I built up the fire, cooked all the meat, and went to find a man about a horse. When Michelle and joe came back(you notice I'm not capitalizing joe's name? I think it's because I hate him) we ate the food, roasted(our bodies anyway) by the fire, were questioned by a cop, trespassed on private property, filled our clothing and shoes with sand, lost some beanies, and of course made sand castles. It was the best time I've had out with my friends in a long time. Thank you buddy buds(except jerk, I mean joe) After the fire died and hypothermia set in, joe and Tony collapsed in exhaustion, started turning blue and Michelle had to give them mouth to mouth recessitation. Then the lochness monster(who apparently goes by bob) came out of the lake on the beach and carried joe and Tony to the car. We then rushed home in attempts to save their lifes, but alas, they died. The End

Great story huh? I think I'll send it in for publishing one of these days. It was such a great story, here is the sequal. We brought in tony and joe's bodies into the house and laid them on the couches. While they were decaying, Toni Michelle and I started talking about them. Their bodies were in the room, but their souls weren't so we figured we could talk about them. very weird, It's like talking about someone behind their backs, while they're in the same room with you. Back to the story. We decided to dump the bodies at joe's old apartment(old meaning, he doesn't live there anymore because he's dead) to let his roommates take care of the remains.

The next morning we decided to have waffles for breakfast. We started cooking them, Their beautiful fragrance filled the air, so crisp, brown and scrumptious, when all of a sudden, Tony and joe's souls popped into the room. Tony with a halo and a harp, and joe with horns and a tail. They had come for revenge of the gossipping we did the night before when they were decaying on the couches. they had heard every word! We begged for mercy,"take anything but the waffles! they're innocent!" Tony was willing, but joe was unmerciful. He ate them like you've never seen someone eat waffles before. And I've seen a lot of waffle eaters in my day. anyway joe ate the waffles, and us girls went hungry the rest of the day. as far as we know Tony and joe(who I still hate even though he's dead) have returned to their respective kingdoms and all is well with the world.

Well now to my evening. I WENT TO STOMP AND IT WAS AWSOME! It is so much better live than just in their movies. It was SO COOL! it wasn't just the percussion part either. It had a lot of comedy too. After words we( my whole extended family on my dad's side) went to Sizzler for dinner. MMMMMMMMMMMMMM........................................................STEAK.............................MMM.
Then when we were all finished eating and just chatting, she pulled out a ginormous cake. And guess who the cake was for? MMMEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! well, a third of it was mine. My uncles birthday is tomorrrow, and my cousins' was yesterday. Mine isn't until next week, but still My name was on it! When we blew out the candles I wished for the usual: car, $100,000 , world peace, a boyfriend, a life, and of course, a lifetime supply of gushers. Hope they all come true. Wait, does that mean I'll only get a third of each wish? I guess I could live with less than $100,000, I suppose i could share the car with my uncle and cousin, world peace.......whatever............., I'll live with a third of a life, third lifetime supply of gushers will do, but the boyfriend thing? does that mean he'd be two thirds gay? or cheat on me with two other girls? Oh well, I guess I'm never meant to be in a relationship.
Oh, commenting on Toni's comment, we should definately do the whole BBQ thing again. Once a month! I even have a blow up boat and paddle I can bring next time. We can turn it into our monthly ritual. Hey! we can even sacrifice joe at the next one! wait, he's already dead. nevermind. I still hate him.
I'm going to have to fast all day tomorrow to make up for all the food I consumed yesterday and today. Is it wrong to fast and your purpose(spiritual) to lose weight? I guess if I'm not struck down by lightning then It's alright.
My poor kitty missed me. when i came home, he practically jumped off the bed to come see me. and thet's not an easy thing to do for a 21 year old cat. Well, I'm sure I've bored you long enough with my ramblings. must go and check my e-mail now. Oh, My dad sent me an............."interesting" song I'll send to you all. tootles

Sickly today

I'm going back to bed to try and recover from my stomach ailments. I worked out this morning(ouch) and probably shouldn't have. Must go take a shower first though, and shave my legs, when they start to grow(the hair) it feels like spiders crawling up my legs. It drives me nuts! so, off to shower, then back in bed. Tootles!

Hearing a nun confess is like being stoned to death by popcorn

what is green and has four wheels? grass. I lied about the wheels.

my mom went to the hospital today to get an ultrasound for gallstones. they also did other tests looking for cancer. We don't find out until later this week about the results. Right now my fingers are freezing. They are numb and it's quite difficult to type when you have no control over your fingers.
Stupid rain. I was going to go for a walk with Toby today. I was up until three once again last night. I'm just a night person and get things done when It's dark. I really need to change that habit. I can't envision myself as a morning person though. even if I get eight hours of sleep, I'm still tired in the morning. My body is retarded.
I know you don't really care, but I shaved my legs today and they feel wonderful. Smooth and silky. Gotta love venus razors.
It was really odd this morning. I woke up and looking in the mirror, and my left eye was extremely swollen. No trace of a bug bite or anything, just really puffy and red. It's gone now, but some things in life just leave you wondering.
Joe, if you're reading this, it's time to update your blog hon. oh, and Tony wants you to reply to all the E-mails he's sent to you.
Well, must go update my other blogs. I'll post some pictures for your entertainment enjoy!

Having brunch makes me look forward to having lupper.

I got to talk to Michelle, Toni and Bec B. today! well, not talk, but instant mesage. It's nice catching up with people.
I didn't go to my other job interview today. I was too pooped from last night. I didn't get to bed until 3:30! My mom and I were having a discussion. Not your ordinary discussion though. A gospel discussion. When my mom and I start, you just can't stop us. It amazes me how much my mom knows about the gospel. I get this hunger once in a while to learn something I don't already know about the gospel, so I ask her a question, and it leads to another and another and another. we talked for four hours last night. I just love talking with my mom about the deep down details that not many people know about the gospel. So interesting!
Anywho, Randy wrote today from the land of germans. and what do you know, he didn't write to me AGAIN! he got So mad at me the one time that I forgot to write to him, and he hasn't written to me the past three times! how hard can it be to drop a quick little note saying hi when you're e-mailing?! He's such a poop sometimes. It makes me want to go play his guitar and then tell him I did. then I'd realy get a response! Hmmmmmm.....maybe I should try that!
My room still isn't clean! I was on a roll tonight, but then I wanted to talk to Michelle Toni and bec, and then we went to get subways for dinner, and now I'm updating my blogs because it's been a while. My room is never going to get clean. You can see some of the floor though. I guess i've had some progress.
Well, I need to finish cleaning my room and work out all before midnight. I have to get busy. Bye Bye!
