I have job interview part 2 in 4 hours.

I also have a migraine, probably from straining my eyes to see the screen in biology.

And also, I knew I was dating The Boy for a reason! He's found me a legal copy of OneNote for FREE!!! You have no idea how much I hate taking notes in Word. I have greatly missed One Note ever since getting a new computer.

Found it!

“We need an unspoiled companion who will not count our wrinkles, remember our stupidities nor remember our weaknesses; … we need a loving companion with whom we have suffered and wept and prayed and worshiped; one with whom we have suffered sorrow and disappointments, one who loves us for what we are or intend to be rather than what we appear to be in our gilded shell.”

--- Spencer W. Kimball

See, I told you it was President Kimball.

Thank you, weather, for transferring all pain that was in my back to my head which causes me to feel pukey. I appreciate it.

Also, I am now soaking wet from walking to my car after stake conference, so I'm going to go take a hot shower. The end.

So, my back always hurts, right (probably I should ask my doctor about this, again, next time I go see her, which probably won't be until after finals and I'm OK with this, in case you were wondering)? Rhetorical question, but, yes, it does. I go through spurts where it reallyreally hurts and then long times where it's just a minor pain. Well, driving long distances seems to through me into spurts, and having driven about 600 miles last weekend, we're in one of those spurts right now. So last night I slept on my back on my floor. If you're wondering, my floor is really hard after about an hour of lying on it. It's also cold down there, even with a million blankets plus a towel to try to keep me warm. So I didn't sleep real well last night (lucky for me, though, the girl directly below me has always been rather quiet in her bedroom, so it wasn't a noise issue). And now I'm exhausted and kind of cranky because I can't take a nap because, oh yeah, I get to leave for stake conference in 20 minutes. No, just kidding. 18 minutes.

Also, I have a blister on my heel from the shoes I wore Thursday. This makes wearing any and all other shoes somewhat problematic and uncomfortable, except for flip-flops, but it's still too cold out to really wear those yet.

And another also, the mail system in this town really stinks.

The end.

I had a weird dream last night where it was suddenly Voting Tuesday (you know, in November), and I'd forgotten to get my absentee ballot, but I was kind of OK with this because there was no body I wanted to vote for (which is true, now). Then, for some reason, nobody else wanted to vote for any of the candidates, either, so George Bush had to stay in office. I was OK with this, too, because I actually like George Bush, but I thought it was weird and sort of felt sorry for the guy. Then I don't remember what happened after that.

But it got me to thinking this morning. What would happen if nobody voted in the elections?

Briefly funny story for you (or not, as the case may be). SO last night I was reading about other people's wisdom tooth horror stories (don't ask). After about 3 I had to stop reading because I thought I was going to pass out. The end.

Sleep Talking
Saturday, February 16, 2008
♦ 2/16/2008 12:16:00 AM 0 comments

Today we learned that The Boy and I have something else in common: we both talk in our sleep.

A few months ago I was sleeping on the couch in the living room, and I guess one of my roommates started talking to me and I was responding. When I woke up, I had no memory of this exchange, so it was decided that I must have been sleep talking. I have also been notified by my sister a time or two that I sometimes talk in my sleep. But, hey, I'm sleeping, yeah? So I can't help it.

Well, so The Boy and I are on our way to Santa Horhe this afternoon and he fell asleep (I was driving, so it was safe, don't worry). He opens his eyes after about an hour or so, looks at me, and says, really confusedly, "Where are we going?"
"Where are we going?"
"Where are we going mumblemumble."
"Uhh... Santa Horhe?"
"Are we driving straight through?"
"... Yeah....?"
"OK." And then he rolled over and went back to sleep.

There was another instance where he said something about the tail lights of the car next to us, only there was no car next to us and I couldn't understand anything he said except for "that car" and "tail lights."

Then we arrived in Santa Horhe and it was noticed that Mom bought a Wii! Sweet action! We played with the fam for a few hours and had a blast. I keep beating The Boy at one of the bowling thingies (not the actual game of bowling, but that one where it adds a new row of pins to the back each time, you know?), but I'm pretty sure I came in last at every other game we played. We didn't make it as far as the cow racing tonight, but we will. Don't you worry, we will. And I will win.

Tomorrow (which, I guess, is technically today) will be full of funandgames including things like: lunch at Iggies, Nielsen's Frozen Custard, Walmart/Polygamist scouting (he's never seen one before), hiking, swimming, wii-ing, and maybe more (like the "mall" or Enchanted if it is at the dollar theater, or miniature golfing....).

You can maybe expect pictures to be posted in various more secure locations within the next week. This is assuming I remember to take my camera out of my back and with us to whatever places we go.

1. I have "18" on my calender (in my phone) a week from Thursday (that's Valentine's Day, for those of you who aren't keeping track). Does anyone know what it means and why I have the alarm set to go off at noon?

2. Also, I'm looking for a quote. I think it was by some Prophet that died a long time ago (maybe Kimball?) and it's about choosing a companion and how you want to be with someone that will love you despite your downfalls and because of your potential. We have asked 4 people plus done 2 hours of research on our own and cannot find it. (Don't worry, there is hope. Dad, you know where you put my black binder that was in my bedroom, right?)

Washing Dishes
♦ 2/05/2008 02:49:00 PM 0 comments

Did I mention that we got a brand new dishwasher? No? Well, we got a brand new dishwasher! Again! (Because, you know, the one we had was brand new when we moved in, so this makes the second brand new dishwasher). And it's just like The Boy's dishwasher (ours was slightly different) and already seems to rinse dishes better than the other one ever did. I'm kind of just a little bit excited about it.

But at least it's done! That's right, folks. 10 days later (after going to the doctor, I mean), I am officially cured of my disease that lasted for nearly three whole weeks. I feel much better about life now.

And my stir-fry? Heck yes, that was amazing.
