Time for a run

It's been one of those evenings where you can't do anything but yell with exasperation, "Lord, give me patience!"

And then He says, "Girl, please! Not when you ask like that!"

BYU football is #8 in the AP Top 25.

I'm not going to lie; I screamed when I found out.

This may be the happiest moment of my life.

It'll be awkward if he's a guy

Heather (to Jennifer): I'll name my first-born child after you if you throw away my plate and get me some water.
Jennifer: Okay.

Hmm, I feel like I just sold my birthright for a mess of pottage...

Bring it

So there I was, innocently munching on Honey Nut Scooters on Jennifer's bedroom floor. Jennifer was on her bed, doing homework.

And then, as I am often known to do, I got an irresistible urge.


I flung a handful of scooters at her.

I think that deep down, she liked it. Especially when she found scooters in her bed when she woke up the next morning.


Scooters attacks led to Smarties attacks. And then those led to the richest plum of them all...


Jennifer has vanilla body spray of wonder and joy.

Jessica hates it with the fiery passion of her soul. So fiery, even, that she relabeled it "Grossness in a Bottle."

And then today, as Jessica was sitting on the couch, I sprang into the room with The Spray.


A few spritzes, an enraged scream, water getting dumped on me, and lots of hysterical laughter.

Free fallin'

So over the summer, I went to a John Mayer concert. I was kind of hoping that he would come on stage by jumping out of a plane while playing a guitar, but alas, I only bought a $35 ticket.

But hey, Johnny, if you're out there, it would be brilliant. I would even pay $36 for that.

It's a good time to be a Cougar

So, BYU football. UCLA.

I dare say, we didn't just beat them. We pinned them down, cut them open, poured salt in their wounds, rubbed it around for a while, set them on fire, and then sat back and laughed manically as they went home crying to their mommies.

Poor guys should have just ran back to the bus during half time.


BYU 59 - UCLA 0.

I bought a 30-pack of tortillas today at the grocery store. Fiesta Bowl, here we come!
