Happy Anniversary!

I just realized that 24 July was the one year anniversary for my blog! Happy Anniversary BigRedHammer!

Celebrate your freedom...

By blowing up a small piece of it. So I just got back from Spanish Fork where I saw an excellent fireworks display. I spent the time with my friends there. There were a lot of people there and a lot of glow sticks too. Now on the Fourth, I was at Thanksgiving Point for the fireworks display. I was very disappointed. But Spanish Fork's display was about 8x better. You know, I need to get a digital camera so I can accentuate my blog with pics from the events I write about. That would be cool. In other news, I bought RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, Hitch, and the new Gwen Stefani CD. RCT3 is disappointing (or my video card is), Hitch is an awesome movie, and the Gwen CD is absolutely superb! So life is good. How's your life?

Me, me me

Ouch, sunburn can hurt. Mondays can hurt. And itchy bug bites can hurt. Woot and double woot. Today is Tuesday. But it is Kyle's and my Monday (first workday of the week). We only went in at 5 (instead of 3). But I'm on a Toys R Us survey. It's 18-22 minutes long and well... it's just not enjoyable. It's very repetitive and people get bored of it. I'm a pretty good surveyer too. I once got a woman thru a 45 minute survey... that due to her constant yammering lasted 80 minutes! I get compliments on my voice too. But all this does not change the fact that I would rather not work there. I need a car, a new job, and well... more money. lol Okay, I'd settle for the car.

"These words..."

"Are my own." I just found a new song. It is so catchy. I'm listening to it again and again. But those who know me, know that that is very common. The music video is good. Kinda original, kinda fun. And on the recommendation of my roommate Kyle, I just watched the music video for "Cool" by Gwen Stefani. It is also a great video. I'm a big fan of Gwen. I'm very excited/happy to find out that she will be in concert in SLC at the Ecenter in October. She will be performing alongside Black Eyed Peas. I am definitely going to be at that concert. I just gotta remember as it gets closer to buy my ticket. You know, I've actually only ever been to one concert before: U2 and No Doubt. It was superb. Both bands put on a good show.

"These words are my own / From my heart flow"

Ring Worthy? I think not!

Before you jump to conclusions... I refer to "The Ring" not wedding bands. lol. Last night my friend Robert and I saw "Dark Water". When I saw that it was from the writer of the Ring I had high hopes. And not that those hopes were dashed as much as slowly placed in a small box and then smashed. It's a good movie, but it doesn't instill near the fear that I had hoped. Look forward to a happy ending with a melancholy flavor. Not the horror and creepy feeling that the Ring excelled in. Perhaps renting this movie would be the best. I will give it a... 7 on the Fear Scale.

In other news, my back is still as red as well... burned skin. I expect it will be a beautiful tan in another day or two. I toasted my front a little today too. I love having a wonderful pre-cancerous glow. (As long as it stays 'pre'.)

Life continues in our little attic. Kyle and I looked at our old house (the one being remodeled). And not to our surprise, nothing has happened. They have a month left to finish... I hope, hope, hope, that they get it done in time!

Back Again?

She did it. Where others have failed, my friend Mightybob succeeded. Reading her blog has made me want to start up the Bigredhammer machinery. We'll see what direction it is headed.

So today was my first time to teach the Elders' Quorum lesson. I had been assigned lesson 13. Unbeknownst to me, I had chosen the wrong book to look in to prepare my lesson. I prepared it on Obtaining Financial Security. Then during Sunday School I was informed of my mistake. So I had forty minutes to prepare a new lesson. Luckily the new topic was much easier than the first. Everyone has commentary and stories on temples. So my lesson went very well. I had lots of people raising their hands and I had more than enough material. That's about as last minute as you get. I hope to never repeat that.

In other news, I have the day off tomorrow. Yeah! Actually I have every Monday off. I have two things to do: Sleep in and go shopping. I've informed my roommate that he is not to turn on his music until I'm awake. The cell phone is going on silent too.

Wow. That was one action-packed blog entry. Watch for more excitement to come!
