the truth.

i am listening to a christmas song right now. sorry if that bothers you.

i saw a ufo last night. truly.

i listened to classical music today by my own free will and choice. moldau = love.

i have a crush on a cartoon.

"marian, my darling. i love you more than life itself."

there's always money in the banana stand, michael.

i just noticed that in basically all the shows i watch regularly there is someone named michael.

michael scott, office

michael vaughan, alias

michael "big mike" tucker, chuck

michael bluth, arrested development.

it's a trend i guess.
also, i saw a banana stand in real life.
well, it was a lemon stand. but that's close enough.

and no matter how many cuties i see who can rock them.
they will be grown out.

ma ma ma. ma ma ma ma ma.

today is weird.
i don't feel like myself.
and i go to work all day every day.
and it's already june 20th.

i don't know what i want to be when i grow up either.
people keep asking me what my major is.
and i say "probably film."
but what i mean is "hhhhh i have no idea. leave me be."

i'm not good at being a grown-up.
not good at all.

i am good at eating with chopsticks though.
so at least i have that going for me.

this is what i do now.

i got a job.
i'm one of the editors on a show called byu weekly.

you should watch this episode:

this episode is really really good. david archuleta is even in it.
the least you could do is fast forward to the end and see my name on the credits.

blimey, 'arry

"Could Snape possibly know they'd found out about the Sorcerer's Stone? Harry didn't see how he could - yet he sometimes had the horrible feeling that Snape could read minds."
-Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, page 221.

Ha! Guess what, Harry. Snape can read minds. It's called Occlumency, and he is a pro.
Oh... dramatic irony.

Hey. One month from midnight tonight.
Ah my gash.

the face is looking almost normal again.

the computer i bought came in the mail today.
i named it JARVIS. like tony stark's computer.
Just A Rather Very Intelligent System.
i love it.

i watched little guy baseball today.
that is one of the very essences of summer.
it was a good time.

i also love the sound of crickets chirping.
and i love watching a lightning storm at night.
one that's happening across the lake.
i live in a beautiful place.

oh, be still my heart.
i'd like to repeat:
if a june night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance.

this is true

hey remember when i used to do radio shows?

i remember.
i was the president of radio too.
so long ago... ha.

and remember when my cheeks were a normal size and not bruised?
i remember.
those were the days...

kyle. kyyyle. kyle.

happy birthday to my big sis.
europe seems like a pretty good place to spend your 22nd birthday, if you ask me.

bon anniversaire, ma soeur!

I may or may not have had a dream last night that I was eating Five Guys.

the worst, really

i say a lot of things are "the worst."

for example
"calculus was the worst."
"waking up when it's still dark outside is the worst."
"rose's fiance on titanic is the worst."

but guess what. getting your wisdom teeth out really is THE WORST.
especially if you can't take your pain medication because you just throw it up.
and especially if your face gets swollen.
and especially if you feel like you're going to starve to death.
the worst.

oh well.
i have lots of nice friends who are checking up on me. thanks guys.
and i have a laptop for watching movies and alias season 4.
and it's johnny depp's birthday.

please bless that i feel better tomorrow.

my husband had better like camping

we will cook lots of things over a fire
and listen to birds chirp
and hike through tons of big trees
and skip rocks and ride in a boat on a pretty lake
and listen to coldplay and cat stevens because they sound good in when you're in nature
and look at stars
and cuddle under plaid blankets

husband, please like camping.
