Too hot, too hot!!! (name that movie, you get a cookie)

Our central air has been broken since the big power outage in Magna last week. It hasn't been such a big deal until today, because we're all home instead of out shopping like yesterday or at church on sunday. I've been sitting in front of my fan on full blast, zombie-like slow movements to prevent any kind of overheating or perspiration, and drinking water by the gallon. At least the ice maker works! Oh, and don't come in my room, or walk past my window, I'm hardly wearing antyhing to reduce body heat :)

I found the BEST deal today! (amazing what you can find with 4 straight hours of internet surfing) Jeans, my size, $20, with a 37" INSEAM! SWEETNESS! Why is this such a big deal you ask? Try finding any type of clothing tall enough for a female 6 feet tall, and then come report your stress levels and findings. Be glad you're not me.

I thought I'd share some findings as I haven't much to ramble about today. Sorry if I've shown these before, I don't keep track really.

Someecards has the best cynical humored cards ever. It's like they read my mind.



So sick of itunes, quicktime, Windows, utorrent UPDATES! My computer is freaking out right now. Is it truly sad that I don't have vista for an OS yet? Heck and windows 7 is out when? Or that I'm still using IE enstead of firefox? I need to go by some RAM. That always makes me feel better. Or a bigger monitor perhaps?



lately watching/reading the news is getting me quite sick of politics. Our government stinks.





DesignCrush.com always some great quotes I steal. Here's one of them:


Ah, 9th ward how I love thee.


I've never seen fight club, though I'd consoder it because Edward Norton is in it and he's quite the hotness of a man. I just really like this quote. It applies to me I think.



K, this next set is a photographer's version of the modern day Disney princess. I loved em. I had the site where I found them, but then lost it to one of the above mentioned unsolicited computer update restarts. So, I'm not sure who did these. I'm not stealing, just sharing.







The whole fam is off to get our temple recommends renewed tonight so we can go to the dedication next month. Plus, now that I think about it, I haven't been there for a LONG time. Who knows if my temple dress even fits anymore. I'm excited fot the Oquirrh temple to be our new assigned one. It's nice and secluded up in Daybreak which is a beautiful area by the mountains. We went to the open house last week while my dad was helping out with the ushering ans stuff. Gorgeous temple inside and out. Kind of small compared to others, but I like it.

Going to see Harry Potter tomorrow with Rachel at 5 Star. Hopefully they have Air conditioning working! I waited to see it becasue I can't stand being in a full theater of kids opening night or several days after. When people laugh uncontrollably at dumb parts, babies crying, or worse yet, CLAP (*punches wall*) I go NUTS!! I think I just don't like being around people in general. Give me an empty theater, no people, silence when it's supposed to be silent and I'll be one happy camper. I'll being going to the first showing to avoid as many people as possible. You're all invited to come with us and to lunch at Subway after! Nevermind that you probably all have to work. Just come.

Off to shower and make some dinner. Potato chip chicken strips to be exact. A new recipe I'm trying out on the siblings and parents. Have a wonderfully air conditioned day!!!

Bullet upon Bullet

Sorry peeps, but my dad has yet to get my vacation pictures from CA & Vegas vacation. We uploaded them to his FTP server when we were abroad. When I have free time, he's busy, when he's available, I'm gone. I will get them as soon as I can because I want to see them too!

But for now I will update you on my life as of late. In bullets if you don't mind.


  • Last Saturday I went back to dark brown for my hair color. Actually a LOT darker than my natural color. But I like it. Dark hair seems to look and feel healthier.

  • You know how I hate milk? Well, this past weekend, I found out why. BECAUSE MY PARENTS ONLY GAVE ME SKIM (i.e. white water) INSTEAD OF DELECTABLE 2%!!!!!!!!!! I now have 2% milk in cereal, chocolate milk and everything that involves milk. Who knew it could taste so good? I still don't drink it by itself, but I just might be able to go off the daily calcium supplement I've been taking since childhood with how much I've been having milk these days. Why do they even MAKE skim? ewww..

  • I will have a ZERO social life starting end of July. Kristi is moving to Logan for some unknown reason. "change" she calls it. Jocelyn and Ian are moving to Logan so he can get his BA. What's in Loagn that makes everyone want to move there?

  • strike that, Toni just moved to Magna, and Shell is moving back too. Guess I WILL have a social life after all! Still, I hate it when friends move away.

  • I went to Ian's B-day party tonight at pleasant green park. We played volleyball and got eaten alive by mosquitoes. My "recovered" bad knee decided to make an appearance. I am getting really sick of that knee. It's in the Genes though. No way of getting out of it.

  • I'm going to Willard Bay this Saturday. Should be fun. Swimming and such.

  • I still need to see transformers. Half the people say it was great, the other half say it's all Megan Fox strutting for an hour and a half. Oh well, Shia LeBouf is super cute a good actor. I'm going to see it.

  • getting another headache(surprise there), ending the bullet list now. :)
