Lori claimed that I mentioned Sandy twice in this blog, but I can’t find where. But as soon as I hit the publish button, both Lori and Sandy will be mentioned, twice in this very post!
The truth is though, that I like to mention people who leave comments. Bruce, Justin and Britt tend to do a reasonable job sometimes at leaving comments.
Oh, and I just thought I would share my motivational plan which has had some limited success in certain markets. Maybe I should try this again. If any one catches me saying something bad about someone, that is, bad mouthing someone else, and they bring it to my attention… I’ll give them a dollar. This is to provide a financial dis-incentive against speaking bad of others. Because it really is something that I want to do better in.
I got a friend request on Facebook today from someone I haven’t really talked to since the 4th grade. All I could say is “Woah.” I guess it just surprised me that someone remembered after all those years.
I don’t know what it is about this time of the year and people getting engaged. I think it must be the flowering trees. They release a psudo-toxin that makes newly returned missionaries pull out rings and propose to the first freshman girl they find. Maybe it is cupid trying to get in as much extra business to pay for the taxes he owes. Maybe something about the sun being directly over the equator causes a shift in the earths magnetic field causing an excess of marital hormones to be generated in college co-eds. I’m not sure what it is, but it just seems like a lot of people are getting hitched. Maybe one of these years I’ll join them in the craziness.
If you are one of the accused, you might want to check out beforeforever.byu.edu which has worksheets for planning weddings and other pre-marital information.
I have a few friends which have recently started dating people. It is funny, because they tend to loose contact with the rest of the world. They stop blogging. They stop posting to facebook. They don’t call you on the phone. If you see them on campus, they get all excited and say, “we should do something,” but what they really are saying is, “I’m going to spend time with my significant other, but if I ever come back from dancing on the moon, you are welcome to wave at me.” I don’t really get what that means, but it generally goes something like that.
I brought a liter of water back from Oregon, and it tastes so good.
If any one sees the fire department racing toward the chemistry building tonight, don’t worry! It was probably just me forgetting that I left my bagel in the toaster a little too long.
