Hunger Games

So the Hunger Games. 
I am pretty Dang excited. 
They have some good actors. 
Jennifer Lawrence is brilliant in Winters Bone, I have it edited if you want to see for yourself.  
I watched The Last Song just so I could see Liam Hemsworth, he was alright, he had to say some stupid, mushy lines, but that wasn't his fault and he had to play opposite Hannah Montana. Also not his fault that she is horrible and all I could focus on was her snaggle tooth. 
Some I am hoping and trusting are good in their parts. I am optimistic.

There is nothing like a little....

Say yes to the Dress to make me feel super depressed. But I couldn't stop watching it. It is on Netflix instant play, and I watched a whole season. And feel super depressed but oddly happy at the same time. Ha ha ha. All I needed was some of this.....

But I was too lazy to go to the store to get it. So I had a bowl of cereal instead. Fun Night.

So here is the situation with Handsome Ben.
We have texted back and forth. All very positive. He came to a banquet we had for our volunteers. That was last tuesday, the 16th. The last time we texted was on thursday. I had a stake activity that I invited him to but he couldn't come because he was working until late. So on sunday, I texted him asking how his weekend had been. Nothing. Then I texted him today asking if he had had lunch yet and if he wanted to come to JCW's. Nothing. So I don't know what happened. So I am taking a poll.

Holy Moley, it has been forever since I have done a real blog post. I haven't posted anything that was mine since May. Freakin MAY! I am a horrible person. So much has happened since then. Ok not that much, nothing too exciting or I would have blogged about it, but that might just be because I am more lazy then due to the fact that nothing really exciting has happened. Did that even make sense? Who knows. Anyway, the last few months, Let me there is too much, let me sum up.

  • My best friend Nicole got married in April.  Amazing, beautiful.
  • My other best friend moved again, and is Pregnant again. Very Very Exciting.
  • We did a tribute to the Fabulous Neil Johnson. It went off without a hitch and he was extremely surprised.
  • My wonderful friend Annie came and visited, and I ran into her unexpectedly at another friends play, the super talented Becca, as Anne in Anne Frank. 
  • Em and I threw a bachelorette party for above mentioned Nicole. It was Movie themed. It was the best bachelorette party utah county has ever seen. We had themed food, gifts, games. The whole nine yards. 
  • It was my five year reunion, I did not go. 

  • My older sister is prego with the first grandbaby. Due Sept. 12th. But she is about ready to pop. Woot, woot. 
  • My little sister and one of my little brothers got their mission calls: Richmond, VA and Accra, Ghana. Respectively.
  • They both went through the temple and I was able to go with them. Very spiritual.
  • My dear cousin passed away. I will miss her sweet spirit. 
  • We had family reunions on both sides. 

  • I went out on a date with a very nice guy named Logan, who is friends with my pal Brittany. 
  • I went out on a date with a very nice guy named Austin, who is friends with my pal Brittany. 
  • I went out on a date with a very nice guy named Josh, who is friends with my pal Brittany. 
  • I went out on a date with a very nice guy named Cameron, who is friends with my pal Krystal. 
  • All first dates. I will never get to a second date. I am where second dates go to die. 
  • I also met this amazingly beautiful and extremely nice guy named Ben. I am still working on a first date, to heck with even trying for a second date. 

  • I had 3 callings. 
  • Then for a very brief period I had only 2 callings! 
  • Then I had 4 callings. 
  • My singles ward went down to Gunlocke, just past St. George, for 3 days. It was super fun.
  • Then I was given a stake calling, which bumped my number up to 5. 
  • Then I got released from 3 callings, so now I currently have 2, Stake Activities Director and Sabbath Day Council Co-Chair.
  • Thursday is our first Stake Activity. I booked the show, the location and I will be Emceeing. 

  • Suzie was a bad car, so I traded her in for Maximus. Maximus is an 05 Subaru Impreza RS 2.5. Red, with tinted windows and a spoiler. He is awesome.He also brought me to Ben. He is the guy that sold me Maximus. (So side story. Suzie broke down again, so I took her in to be fixed, and I was with my mom because she wanted to go and take her car in to be looked at, so we drove down to what used to be Brent Brown in Provo, now it is Larry H. Miller. So as she was talking to the parts guys I said, I am going to go look around at the cars. I am casually strolling out to the cars, when this young attractive guy comes up and asks if I needed help. So 3 test drives and five hours later I got Maximus. I drove him home in glee. But only to find out he had a problem. His CD player didn't work. Luckily Ben called the next day to check up on how I was liking Max. I told him about the problem and he said he would get it taken care of. So a week later, after going in almost every day, which I didn't mind because I got to see Ben, Max's CD player was going to finally be fixed. So I brought it in at 9:30 before work. And Ben was there ready to take me to work. But he didn't tell me that it was his morning off, so he had come in early to take me to work. Then when Max was finished later that day, Ben came and picked me up at work to get him. So that is the story of Max and the very thoughtful Ben.Pretty great huh?)
  • I painted a painting. I really loved doing it and now I have a sweet painting in my office. 
  • I got new fish. Ender and Bean. And Jem and Scout. 

So that is pretty much the sum of what I have been up to the last few months. I probably forgot something, probably some really really important things, but what can you do? I have a bad memory.

Blog Post Sharing

So I don't know if you know of this blog. Single Dad Laughing. But it is one of my favorites. Today was an awesome post by Dan. I just needed to will see why.

Just a few thought that I loved, I get asked on a daily basisBy my mother, father, Sister and brother in Law, friends, the bishopric in my singles ward, my father, my aunt, people I meet on the street, seriously every person I talk to, the subject always comes up. What is wrong with that? Oh nothing, only that it makes me feel like crap the rest of the day.

Things You Should Never Say to a Single Person

Well, once again I asked you for some awesome material for a blog post,
and you delivered! The question I put on the Facebook Wall for today's 
post was, "What are the things people say to single people that are 
rude or ignorant?" A lot of awesome answers came through. 
Enjoy (along with my own and some of your slightly snarky retorts).
  • So, why are you single?
    Ummm, maybe because I don't shower and I hate puppies. 
    (I love this one, I get asked it all of the time, seriously. 
    I have stopped trying to be nice about it, when it get 
    asked it 3 times is one night you just want to burst into tears)
  • Just have fun with it!
    Thank you. You've just solved all my problems. I was
    purposefully NOT having fun with it.
  • Have you tried online dating? didn't work so I guess my next move is Craigslist.
  • It just wasn't meant to be.
    Thank you. I've been hoping to find somebody who knows 
    the complete plans of the universe. So tell me, all knowing, 
    who IS meant to be?
  • It will happen when you least expect it.
    How can I expect it less than never? (also another one 
    that I get a lot, and I have to agree, How can I expect 
    it less than never?)
  • There are plenty of fish in the sea.
    Thank you for rubbing my nose in my inability to get any of them.
  • You're just too picky.
    So, you're saying I should settle? (My families personal favorite.
     Everyday I tell you, every day. Maybe I should settle for they guy 
    that doesn't treat me well, or someone I don't get a long with at 
    all or that I am not attracted to...that would make me happy right?)
  • Are you kidding? I wish I was single and in your shoes.
    Poor baby.
  • You're so attractive! What seems to be the problem?
    How do I answer this without making you or me look like a jerk? 
    (Yep, you guessed it. Also one I get all of the time. This one 
    always makes me feel prettier, especially when a 50+ old 
    man is saying it to me.)
  • Maybe you're not trying hard enough. 
    Oooooh. That must be it. I think what you're really saying is
    that I'm not easy enough. (Ha ha ha ha ha ha. According to 
    quite a few people, I do not try hard enough)
  • He just hasn't found you yet.
    Oh, well, then I guess I'll stop looking and wait for him to
     come to me!
  • When are you going to get married?
    When are you going to let me kick you in the teeth?
    (Never, now leave me alone)
  • There  are so many great guys/girls out there.
    So, are you saying that I'm not one of them since they're 
    so readily abundant and I'm still alone?
  • I'm sorry.
    For what? Making me feel like a piece of crap?
  • You'll be complete some day.
    Yes, because I'm so incomplete now. Thank you.
  • You'll always be single until you fix yourself up.
    Meaning... I have to be someone other than me?
  • At least you don't have any responsibilities.
    At least you don't have any tact.
  • You're not getting any younger!
    And you're not getting anything in my will. 
  • Oh, you're the unmarried one.
    Oh, you're the one with a ridiculously large forehead. 
  • Are you gay?
    If I told you I was, would you get off my back?
  • You're too skinny.
    You're too fat. Let's hug and pretend we don't despise each other.
    (Every day for the last month)
  • It must be so nice to be single.
    It must be so nice to be stupid. (Ha ha ha ha!)
  • You know, your biological clock is ticking.
    Thank you for the reminder. So is yours, which means a 
    drop kick to your face won't heal as quickly.
  • Come on won't be a third wheel!
    Well, I wasn't going to feel that way before, but now...
  • Beggars can't be choosers.
    So, I'm officially at beggar status. Please sir... can 
    you spare a girlfriend for a guy down on his luck?
  • Your self confidence scares guys off.
    I think you're onto something. I'll start acting like 
    a pushover doormat. That'll bring me the right kind of guy. 
    (I have also been told that I scare guys off, but who
     whats a guy that can't keep up with me?)

Mothers Day Food

So I am sure like most of you, you make your mother breakfast in bed on mothers day, or you did. Well because I still live with my parents I still do. This year I made Crème brûlée French toast. It was super yummy, I found the recipe on one of the many blogs that I follow. I wish I had a picture to share because it look as awesome as it tasted. So that was breakfast. Dinner was a deer roast, with potatoes and carrots. Steamed asparagus and corn pudding. It was very colorful and yummy. The corn pudding was good, too much onion so I know only to do half of one the next time I make it. Then for dessert at my mothers request it was sweet waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. It was a very yummy mothers day. I love you mommy!
