OK, friends from the world wide interweb…
(IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE - COULD YOU PLEASE READ THE LAST SENTENCE OR TWO OF THIS POST!?!?!?!!!)
So, I’ve been thinking a lot about the comments on my blog… And I was thinking, “Man are you people validating me!”
At church, our old Stake Presidency (not to be confused with a “Steak Presidency,” which I believe is a trifecta comprised of delegates from Texas Roadhouse, Ruth Chris Steakhouse and Flemmings that meet in a top secret tunnel just west of Orem)… well, the old Stake Presidency said we ought to work on these 4 things for long term happiness (I don’t think they’ll come as a shocker to any card carrying member of the LDSSA), but here goes:
Daily scripture study
Daily temple worthiness
Daily acts of kindness.
I just want to mention, for those of you who may be struggling with the other three, just know that every time you post a comment to my blog, you’ve done a great act of service… pay it forward, man.
Sooo, I remember when I started this blog, and I just kept writing to an audience of none… But who could’ve ever understand the power of blogstocking?!?!
But seriously, it’s so cool to connect with everyone… and please note, I was totally kidding about “looking down on the world.” We’re renting for like $400 a month… so it’s not like I’m suggesting we’ve got any buying power… But man, if you could pay off a house with love… we’d be set. ;)
Shout outs … soooo, in honor of the comments:
Wicky – so glad you noticed that my husband’s hot… eventually we will take the advice of your husband when you two were procreating (“go two a days”). It worked for our college volleyball team… why not when one is trying to be fruitful and multiply (ps. We’re still under the “Procreate in 2008” mantra… but I’m thinking Fall is a wonderful season for conception…. Btw, does anyone but me feel uncomfortable with this discussion? Ah, let’s Move On…)
Darth Spencer – I still wish we could clone Speaker Pelosi. I will never forget your wisdom… and yes, loved your bit on Freaks and Geeks. And the fact that I have a Facebook account, but apparently that’s lame… makes me feel better about myself. Like the fact that I can’t navigate it, has got to mean more than just showcase my lack of technological savvy. (Steve’s watching American Gladiators upstairs… reminded me of you and Al. Danny says we should think about going as the two of you at next year’s Hallow’s Eve shin dig…. I mean, if we’re invited.)
Mel, C and Holt…and all the other prego ladies in my life: is Juno a fair representation? And yes, to any of you interested in the film… I will see that film as many times, if not more, than I saw 10 Things I Hate About You in the theater (bless Heath Ledger, so sad. So sad.) Um, I just noticed, if you write Mel and the C, it sounds like I’m addressing former members of the Spice Girls.
Charlene – I can’t believe you found me! Sounds like life is on the up and up for both of us… are you still the queen of sassy black boots for Sunday school (I totally recommend those over flashing your thong, any day.)
Em – no your Dad doesn’t know… and I think it was shortly after his reign… I think he had me teaching Relief Society (I could be wrong)? But the women seem to be much more forgiving (as long as the “show” only happens in front of other women).
OK, honestly… my fingers are getting tired…
I’ve got part 2 of my shoutouts for later this week.
Wicky’s sister… I am shooting for tomorrow’s yoga class with Scott. I need some seriously charka aligning after the weekend I had… man, Superbowl Party food does a friggin NUMBER on my system…. I’m not sure if you were aware of this; but unlike my sister, I am neither an exercise nut, a runner, an athlete, nor a morning person… I may have been adopted, but I too much of my father’s temperament… so I think I belong to the family. But I’ll try to see you for 5:45 sun salutations. And we’re seeing her, the kids and Wade on Thurs… we’re heading to Ohio for the weekend.)
OK, here’s the important part… Danny’s b-day is tomorrow… he is going to be a quarter of a century. You should call or email him… I feel weird about writing his personal cell phone here… so instead, I’ll just write his personal email (firstname.lastname@example.org)…. If you could just shoot him a note of Happy Birthday Cheer*, I would forever be indebted… or better yet, feel free to leave b-day comment on my blog… because then we both win! I get comments (and look uber popular), he gets birthday wishes…
*Ladies and gents from PARSONS... I am especially talking to you... seriously, you have his work email, and a phone number for the kid. Handle it, my friends!

Playing Catch Up... and Leaving Comments for my Husband
