Note to self

When traveling home on trax, do not study. Nope, do not take that opportunity to throw your head into the renal function system. Do not do this especially when good music is playing in your ear. This only leads you to missing your stop and not realizing till you are 2 stops away. This will also lead to a huge increase in bladder pressure because there is not doubt that you drank a diet coke, and there is a huge probability that the 15 minutes you spend waiting for the returning trax will quite possibly be the longest of your life. No, do not use your time wisely it leads to a very, very long and painful trip home.

I always wondered

how homeless people always seem to find a black marker to write on the cardboard box signs. I can never find a black sharpie marker when I need one... How do they always seem to have one? How do they find a marker easier than a sandwich? This question keeps me up at night.

You know what else? On Saturday night I just found out that the reason why buckin broncos buck is because they tie up their "boy parts" and they buck around trying to get lose. Those poor guys are so uncomfortable! Despite learning of this torturous act I had a wonderful time at the rodeo. Strawberry days rodeo was a good time. Loved watching the little kids mutton bust, the big hair of the rodeo girls, the tight jeans on the cowboys, the bull riding and the strawberries and cream. Loved it.

Still. Where do the homeless get the markers to write their "will work for food" signs??

Truffle Shuffle

Friday night movie in the park. I LOVE it! A few friends and I picked up some dinner and then headed to the park to partake in a little picnic and FREE movie. That screams fun summer time huh? What you ask could possibly make it even better?? The movie they showed was The Goonies!!!! This could be the best movie Steven Spielberg ever made. ;) You laugh, you get scared and you cry. There is even romance!! Warning for those of you with tender ears... these kids like to say the sh*t word. I don't know why, but every time it was said I kind of giggled.
This movie has always had a special place in my heart, and to see it in the great outdoors, laying on the grass with your friends while trying to make someones shin a pillow make it even better. Plus seeing Chunk do the truffle shuffle on a large inflatable screen is priceless.

I highly recommend Friday night movies in the park to everyone here in the Salt Lake area. Check out the schedule here.

Out of the mouths of babes

A few weekends ago my roommate's nephews and nieces spent the night at our apartment. They were so adorable and hilarious! We inherited the couches that use to be at their house. One of them even gave us a valuable piece of advice- he said that we shouldn't spend too much time on the couches because they "gassed" a lot on them. Hahaha.

A little later I was showing little Preston a picture of my own nieces and nephews.

He looked at the picture and said, "Where is your husband? Is he dead? Is he dying? I hope he's OK!" Thanks Preston, I hope he is OK too.
