Other random ramblings:
People in my ward keep asking me why I run in the heat of the day, at 1:30 in the afternoon. They think I am nuts, which of course is not far off. I calmly explain that I am training for a double secret marathon in the Egyptian desert in 2010. I also ask them why they are home at 1:30 in the afternoon, spying on me.
Usually by now I am beginning to get excited for the upcoming school year. So far, I feel no excitement in my gut. Perhaps I have become numb to the hysteria autumn brings to a teacher. I'm sure it will hit me soon.
We went back to Cherry Hills (Thanks Ike!) for a second time this summer. (First time for Cathi.) We left Calder at Grandma's. We probably went on the wild tube ride 30 times in a row. Lincoln could just not get enough and we could pretty much walk it on over and over.
While we were swimming, I was looking at my thong. (Not the one I was wearing up my butt.) I began to wonder, whoever invented the thong, why did they put the thongy part of the thong between the big two toes? Why not put it in between the two middle toes? Or why not put one in between every toe? I thought about this for hours. More on my other thong later.
I have decided to run my marathon on Labor Day by myself. I don't need all the
fanfare and excitement an organized race
brings. I just want to do it for myself. Afterward I plan on eating 17 lbs of red meat at the Rodizzio Grill. Interesting fact: Did you know that a vegetarian owns the Rodizzio Grill? If you said yes, you are lying because I totally just made it up. Since I am on the subject though, I would highly recommend staying AWAY from the hard boiled quail eggs at Rodizzio Grill. Stick to eating three things there: Meat, cinnamon bananas and fried pineapple. But for the love of all things holy, STAY AWAY FROM THE QUAIL EGGS!
I have also decided not to post my book entries as I write them on the Blog O' Cheese. My reasoning is that having my chapters critiqued by my best friends may actually take the fun out of writing. Alas, I will write the book and THEN post it chapter by chapter on the blog. Because I have already written the entire thing, my fun will have been had and I will be more open to criticism. Thank you for your support.
Oh yes, and check out this stupid BYU fan showing their racist side holding a sign at a BYU/Utah volleyball game. Can you believe this crap?! The girl holding the sign of the girl holding the sign is a Navaho University of Utah graduate. Apparently, the Y fans also held up a sign saying, "Trail of Tears part II". Now if that is not offensive, I don't know what is. Some of the stuff that comes out of Provo just blows me away sometimes. Here is the article if you are interested.
