Totally 80s!

So we had an incredible 80s party this weekend! There was some Twister action, 80s foods like: Twizzlers, Combos, and Cheetos, we had an 80s trivia contest and a bubble gum blowing contest. Thinking about it now, we should have had an 80s costume contest. As you can see, we had some totally outrageous gear present!

Utah State Fair

Shout out!

Here is a shout out to Lori-Ann who reads my blog! So this weekend was an excellent one. Kyle and I took off work on Friday so that we could attend the Stake Opening Social. The social was incredible as always. I belive I told you all it entailed already. Saturday I got to go up to a party/social with my friend Mike up at Park City. Let me tell you, in Park City it is already fall. I was cold up there! Provo has started getting cold at night and the trees are red in the mountains. Did you know that trees turn the most brilliant colors when it is very hot during the day and very cold at night. The larger the difference, the better the coloring. On Sunday it was a wonderful day at church. Our Bishop and his wife gave talks. Or should I say Sister Huntington gave a talk... and all our bishop had time for was some comments. lol But good comments nonetheless. That night I went to a dinner party at my friend Jeromy's. I met some new people there and talked with some friends too. I made my mother's world famous Spanish rice. Mmmm, I have leftovers of that and I love it! Monday I got to go the Utah State Fair. Now when I was told about that I was thinking more of a rodeo. But it isn't just that... there are animals, crazy rides, tons of fried foods, and tons of fun. I will definitely want to go again. Tuesday, being today, I went to work. However, I didn't have to go in till 4:45. Normally I start at 3pm. So that was pleasant. Afterwards I went to Jeromy's, hung with my friends and we barbecued. Sadly, I had been eating grapes and Mike's incredible chip dip so I was full by the time my bratwurst was done. You know, I've never had a bratwurst before. I'm told they're like hotdogs should be. *shrug* Will I ever know?

What a wonderful four (five if you don't count the 4.5 hour interruption of work) weekend. Sweet!

World Domination

This might have been the sound you heard from me last night: "Mwahahaha-huh?" Mike, Aaron, Kyle and I played Risk last night. I was black as in the Black Plague. Well, I must have been a very weak strain because I didn't hurt anyone. On my first turn I had a string of bad luck. Everything I went against beat me. I was warned to stop, but I had to keep going till I got a card. Which left me with only one country with more than one army on it. And that one only had two armies on it. I should have dealt with not getting a card and just held my own. I could have had Australia and then finished getting Africa after that. Well, hopefully I learned my lesson. Next time I will (hopefully) be a force to be reckoned with.

It's Thursday and I am wishing it was Friday. We are having our Stake Opening Social. It's at our old stake president's home. Let me tell you, this is the most incredible place. It has two large homes, a human slingshot, an indoor pool and hot tub, a tennis court, a horse pasture, a bonfire location, it's up a canyon and next to a mountain. And TONS of people come too. I took all of Friday off of work so that we could go on time. It will be a blast. (It has been every other year.)

I am also happy for tomorrow: I get paid! Yeah, for paydays!

Today has been a good day thus far. Last night I stayed up till four I think talking with Mike. I was in a very good habit of going to bed at one every night. Mike's a bad influence. lol. But I enjoyed our talk. We disagree on our likes of scary things. I taught a Sunday School lesson for Amy today as well. The actual lesson was from Gospel Principles. It was only 4.5 small pages long. With some guidance I found the same lesson online through from the New Testament manual. That helped significantly. So I woke up at 10:30 to finish preparing the lesson. Fast and testimony meeting was very good as well. The lesson went very well too. I had more material than the time required. Now, there was only about a dozen people in my class... but they did well in participating and commenting. So all in all, I was proud of the results.

And a little while ago I got back from Break the Fast. So now I am nice and full. I have started the novel "Dune" today as well. And for now I am resisting the urge to take a nap. So I am writing this blog entry and listening to some classical music. I'd write the name of the song I'm listening to, but it's just too long. Why couldn't classical composers name their music. Maybe something like "Frolic in the Forest" instead of "Concerto of Violins in A Major With a Side of Simple Fugues and a Glass of Fortisimo" Ugh. My roommate says that Bach was all mathematical so all of his titles reflect that. I hate math.
