Can you hear the drums MoTab?

So some lovely ladies and I drove down to the SLC to see the MoTab Christmas Concert. It was fun times. The concert was super and I especially loved the reading of Longfellow's Christmas story. I almost cried, but I kept it in! Be proud it's probably the only time I won't cry. Well, life is good and I just finished fourty Christmas Cards! I know. I know. I just have to keep up my stalker relations. Luff! And M had this ancient hand warmer that I'm pretty sure is full of Asbestos-Aspestos-Asbes....shhhhh. I'm ashamed.

Hippo Bird Eye Two Ewes!

So It was Mfish's birthday this past week and we went to SLC to celebrate! It was loads of fun. We first went to IKEA, then Plato's Closet, then we went to HAPPY NAILS-which was probably the highlight. I got a pedicure and also my nails done for the very first time! I know. I know. I'm a bit slow on the girl thing, but better late than never I say! We then went to Envy so M could get her massage. I started this interesting book called Baby Catcher It is cronicles of a modern mid-wife. Highly interesting. Then we went to dinner at P.F. Changs. It was good. Then only because it was M's birthday did I subject myself to The Transporter 3. SHHHHHEHEHEH. I'm ashamed. It of course was D-U-M-B. Kitty really liked it. Figures. So here are the pics!

Ten years....TEN YEARS...TEN........YEARS!!!!

Fill this out about your high school! The longer ago it was, the more fun the answers will be!! Re-post with the name of high school and graduating year.

1.Did you marry someone from your high school?
I’m married to myself for LIFE! Does that count.

2.Did you car pool to school?
I think I did my senior year. Just because all of my junior friends had cars!

3.What kind of car did you have?
HAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAAHAH! Is that some sort of joke! The only car that I got was when I graduated. It was a rusted out 80 something truck and three months after my parents gave it to me they took it back and I had to buy my own rusted out dreamboat. I did get to drive the milk smelling van tan when I was a good girl.

4. What kind of car do your drive now?
PEEKAY GOLDENROD! My one and only love!

5.It's Friday night...where are YOU (then)?
Probably knitting a sweater with my braces-ya I’m supa cool!

6.It's Friday night..where are you (now)?
Well, I finally ditched the sweater braces, but not much about me social life has evolved since then.

What kind of job did you have in high school?
Let me take you back, back before truckers wore shirts, or deodorant, or had teeth, or shaved. Back when they thought that hitting on 16 year-old girls were okay. I had the life, the dream, the job of all jobs. I totally was the Grain Girl for the TRENTON FEED CO-OP! Ya, four years baby. Four years I got hit on by nasty, dirty (both mind and body), old men. It was AWESOME! I took grain samples and told those big lugs where to go. My favorite was when someone ran into my ladder and so it was bent and coming off of the wall and I still had to “cowboy up” and risk life and limb to get the sample. Fun time. Fun times.

8.What do you do now?
I'm a mom and I do hair on the side.-LOLA! So I stole this outline from a fiends website and I forgot to change this answer. I bet you didn't know I was a mom AND did hair! Funny times.

9.Were you a party animal?
Well, animal sounds about right. I don’t think I was a vegetable or a mineral, but the test results haven’t come in yet. I’ll let you know.

10.Were you considered a flirt?
HHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAHAHAHAAHAHHAHAHAH! Ya, I was a flirt. I flirted with social disaster EVERY DAY!

11.Were you in band, orchestra, or choir?
Oh baby was I?! I played the viola for 4 years, practiced about five times. Then in 9th and 10th I was in Choir. I like to try and sing the Spanish lyrics whenever possible. I’m not sure music is my calling. Or maybe it’s just the social interaction thing again.

12. Did you get suspended/expelled?
I’m a good girl I am!

13. Can you sing the fight song?
Oh. Sad day. It is lost to me, BUT never fear I do still know the USU fight song. My favorite part was “show me the true blooded Aggie from Utah who doesn’t love the place where the sage brush grows!”

14.Who was/were your favorite teacher(s)?
The ones that didn’t expect me to answer questions or care about higher education. Although Mrs. Lethem did keep my book report for “The Pirate and His Lady.” I made a 3D ship model with legos and cowboys.

15. Where did you sit during lunch?
As far away as possible from the jock, the theater junkies (Thespians), and really anyone else who had a life.

16. What was your school's full name?
Sky View High School

17. What was your school mascot?
Bobcat-grrrrrrrrr-be aggressive got to be aggressive. Got to aggreefjeifeifjels….

18.If you could go back and do it again, would you?
You know it! I loved being in the duct tape gang, the Trenton gang, the Yemenite gang, and whatever gang I decided to start yo! Actually no. I much prefer to live the life that I have now.

19. What do you remember most about graduation?
IT WAS WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY TO STINKING LONG! If I could go back I would totally skip it and just get my diploma in the mail. Not worth the time and energy. We did take a hand held wheel of fortune game and some jolly ranchers to somewhat entertain us, but the only thing I really recall is that I twisted every strand from my cap tassel till it looked like a squiggly ball. I had three by the way. Stupid Jostens.

20.Who did you take to prom Senior year?
Brandon something, no….wait it’ll come to me…Brennen. Yep his name was Brennen and I was his pity date.

21. Did you have fun at Prom?
Oh sure. We were late for everything. I did miss the promenade and we only had time to take pics and dance one dance. Then it was over. Oh well. I enjoyed it.

22.Do you still talk to the person you went to Prom with?
No deal. I think he married his high school sweetheart and I’m sure they have lots of babies by now.

23.Are you planning on going to your 20 year reunion?
Who knows. Maybe it will be like Grosse Point Blank. If so then YES!

24.Do you still talk to people from school?
Some. It’s fun to catch up and see what they are up to.

Okay - now your turn. What do you remember?

So I left this picture for last because I wanted to reward all of you who read the whole thing. Yes. It's true I was and still am the hottest thing since tube socks. I rock that is all!

I am a lone reed...



So today (since nothing exciting has been happening) I'm going to share with you one of my favorite pictures. I took this back in the day whilst I was still living in Washington. I love what it physically looks like as well as what it symbolically means to me. The next thing is a sonnet that the lovely Skrievie brought to my attention. All of you may or may not know this about me, but I have a soft spot for poetry and this feeds into my darker joy. P.S. I'm not currently depressed just reflective on this beautiful, but dreary Sabbath.

My love is as a fever longing still
For that which longer nurseth the disease,
Feeding on that which doth preserve the ill,
Th'uncertain sickly appetite to please.
My reason, the physician to my love,
Angry that his prescriptions are not kept,
I lath left me, and I desperate now approve
Desire is death, which physic did except.
Past cure I am, now reason is past care,
And frantic mad with evermore unrest;
My thoughts and my discourse as madmen's are,
At random from the truth vainly expressed:
For I have sworn thee fair, and thought thee bright,
Who art as black as hell, as dark as night.
-Sonnet 147-

This is Halloween, this is Halloween, Halloween, Halloween!

In this town we call home everyone hale to the KTG! So, I've started my one and only tradition (TRADITION!) I am going to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas once a week between Halloween and Christmas. You may join me in my quest for greatness at any time. Here is the last few weeks of my life in pictures. Enjoy and ask no questions please.





Are you suprised that Bambi was a princess? HUH? M-Fish Darling was Sydney Bristow from the pilot of Alias and I was just awesome in my baby blue, all leather, spangled jacket. You sadly cannot see it. My hair was awesome as well. I was awesome, and so's your old man! WHOOOOOOO! Sorry, sugar rush.



This is Jr Jr's response to her mother dying and cutting (cut, cut, cut) my hair. Yet again another awesome job.
I was so tired the other day at lunch and so I sent me manager a text saying that I just couldn't make it back. She said that I had no get out of jail free cards. So as I was returning to the blessed "Thank you for calling Wamu in Awesome Town, now a part of Chase, this is KTG how may I help you?" I stopped at an intersection and this boy looked at his brother 15 feet in front of him and just gave up. Power to the youngin, I new how he felt.


I also was granted the oportunity to watch Big Boy's last football game of the season. So I don't know anything about football and as I was asking a question every five min. And who was it that was answering them? MY MOM! I don't think she really loves sports, but wow. She was getting into it. Go mama go go. I didn't understand much, but what I did made me sad. I can't repeat that score here due to egos that may be deflated, but I can tell you that Big Boy's team lost to WX-they wore purple and there mascot was a wildcat. All through the game I sang the Duran Duran song "Wild Boys." Only I sub'd boys with cats! I'm funny! I'm glad I got to go and BB did good. Go Cats!




P.S. Randy and I decided that if either of us were men we would look like B.B.
This is me brother in law at his best! The pic below doesn't do the sunrise justice, because dang gina it was B-utiful!



And for those of you who have never heard the song "Wild Boys." Here's more than a little treat for you. Pay close attention to the chicken dance in the middle and the crazy man-eating fish toward the end. Those are my favorite parts. I think it's Simon's tribute to Mad Max. Wow, I was born one decade too late! I love the


80's! WILD BOYS ALWAYS SHINE! And I'm awesome. That is all.
