ok. while we are talking about cats, I saw this on youtube and my brain still hurts from laughing so hard. Sorry to those with dial up who won't be able to see it.

~Homeless Kitties~

Dudes, this is Smudge. She is currently going to be sent to a farm, along with her siblings. If you can find anyone who wants a kitty, please tell them to get these ones! They are soooo sweet and I love them, but we can't keep them! The others are equally cute, and they're all so sweet! HELP THE HOMELESS!

I'm scared!!!!! The gas pedal is creepy!!!!! Driving is so AH! I'm gonna CRASH!!!! Especially because on Friday, we got rear-ended by a Semi, but we were stopped at a stop light, and then the car in front of us moved, and then the semi moved before we did! It hurt! I was leaning my head back against the seat, and BAM! It was I'm paranoid now!

P.S. This is Kenshin, one of my recent anime fads. (he has red hair! WHOOT!) So, do you like (in order) Thoughtful Kenshin, Wide-Eyed Kenshin, or Just Plain Awesome Kenshin?

Yes, it has finally happened after 2 years 3 months 1 day and so many hours, I GOT MY BRACES OFF! I got them off Wednesday (17th) morning and I couldn't believe how easy it was. I would have posted this earlier but my computer's been slow and I've been lazy. I'm hoping soon Hillary can post the pictures I took of me before and after.

I'm so excited, I look good :) I've been rubbing my tongue over my smooth teeth all of the time and I've been smiling like crazy ask my family, Hillary, Shannah, Aly and Amanda.

Also on Wednesday, I pulled a 'Hillary.' After my Ortho. appointment, instead of going back to school, I went with my mom to the store to help her lift the heavy things at the case lot sale, since her backs hurts. I love that feeling of skipping school. When I finally checked in at school, my mom had to come in because my excuse note from the Ortho. was from like 2-3 hours before.

Korver's Surgery

Hey guys! if you are wondering about Korver surgery or just want to see some dang cute pictures of him smiling with a lot of tubes stuck to him, here is a link to my brother's blog: Korver is totally cute! if you scroll down to the first post (i think) it will explain what was wrong with him. it made my heart hurt to see the incision all down his little stomach.

this is so totally awesome!! it is the new Ipod nano. if you give it a shake, it will actually shuffle your songs! and if you like a song, there is a program that will find other songs that go good with that song! and if you put it horizontal it automatically switches to the cover flow screen so you can find an album! totally amazing!! I want one!!

and also more happy news; my nephew korver had his surgery today and it went perfectly! he didn't loose very much blood, which is kinda hard to do when doing open heart surgery. Now all he has to do is stay at the hospital for a week and heal! yay!

OMGosh! I might be moving to Alaska! SQUEEEEEE!!!!! (No, I'm really not kidding, Yen)
And this is unlike the "Aly-moving-to-Bear-Lake scare" because both my mom and my dad are for it this time! If we did, it would be to Homer, Alaska...HOMER! Ah well, the name can't be helped, I guess.
This would be SO SAD, cuz I'd be leavin' y'all, but on the other hand, wouldn't it be a nice adventure? I mean, I have lived in UTAH my whole life, possibly the most boring/blase stae in the U.S. Wouldn't Alaska liven things up a bit?

Random Aly trivia:

Once, when I was seven, I held a boy down and Baylee kissed him.

HA! That was totally random.

Coyote Gulch

Hello! I have just gotten back into civilization from living Bear Grylls style! yay! I went down to Coyote Gulch backpacking. It was amazingly gorgeous there and filled with animals. I saw 10 frogs (and touched one of them) 17 lizards, 7 tadpoles, 2 snakes, 3 stink bugs, a gagilion spiders, 3 crows, evidence of a rat, and we almost ran over 16 jackrabbits.

the first night we stayed in a really cool cave like thing and left our stuff out in the open. how silly of us. in the morning we couldn't find our lighter and finally found it 5 feet away under a rock with bite marks on it. also our m&m bag was ripped open. we figured the little rats were waiting till we fell asleep and split up, wanting roasted m&ms that night or something.

on the way down the canyon we had to squeeze through two rocks (pictured above) when i stood profile the heels and toes of my feet touched each side of the canyon. i don't know how my dad fit through. had gone on a head and turned back around to see how he would fit. I was running(what I could do when the ground is a pile of rocks) when I heard a hissing noise. I looked down and, right where I was about to put my foot, a gigantic snake was uncurling and hissing at me. I screamed and ran.

a couple of days before we got to the canyon there had been a flash flood that had killed 2 people. This was good because there was virtually nobody there. I think they were scared off. this was bad because if there was any trail at all it was washed away. we just followed the river. Also, my dad was relying on the river for water, and because of the flood the river was way to muddy for my dad's filter to handle. we found this little waterfall (above) of clean water coming in and pulled a Bear Grylls. I got to stand under the waterfall with a pan against the wall and wait for water to trickle in. I got soaked and we got water. I also slipped on the stupid slippery rock and cut my leg. not fun.

after walking against the muddy banks, where every step you took you were sinking ankle deep (and once knee deep) in mud, we finally got to the exit of the canyon. one problem, the exit was a 45 degree angled rock and we had to pull our packs up after us. my dad didn't bring a rope long enough and I was stuck half way up the rock. It was basically like rock climbing without any rope. the only hand and foot holds were miniscule and you had to keep going or you would slip. it scared the crap out of me until I got to a ridge and stayed there. I was starting to think it would be nice to sleep there because there would be no way I could get up or down, when these two really cool guys, who had passed us by, came back and asked us for help. one was british and reminded me of the actor who playes James in Twilight. they whipped out this gigantic 100 ft long rope and tied it to a rock then the scrambled down the rock (one was barefoot!) and grabbed our packs and scrambled just as fast up the rock. they were crazy! then they climbed back down to help "mum" and "sis" and "brother" up the hill. we grabbed the rope and climbed up. I swear they were like animals. my mom even told them that and they just grinned at her.

we barely got back to the road and our car before the sun went down. My dad told us it would be around a 7 mile hike, but it ended up being a 13 mile hike. I loved every minute of it. :D

Carter seems to have taken offense with me, because he just told me in a really venomous tone that I have "a normal face" and that my "hair is cut in half" and that I "don't know how to teach soccer."

How dare he?!

Hole In the Wall

Have you guys seen that new game show, Hole In the Wall? It's HILARIOUS! It's this Japanese game show that just came to America, and they stand there and have to fit through holes in these moving styrofoam walls! It's so stupid it's funny!

Whoo...South Korea

Dallin sent us a bunch of information about South Korea, and it was really cool. He says they eat the same stuff for every meal: rice, kimchi, more rice, and vegetables. Sometimes, they will add meat of some sort. Even breakfast! Isn't that weird?

He says that there are a million tiny businesses that are all the same (like 20 Internet cafes and 20 clothes stores and get the point...all next to each other), and he can't figure out how they stay in business. He sleeps on these mat things.

He sent us a picture of the skyline of his area (Buchan, I think...or is it Incheon? Anyway, it's all part of the Greater Seoul area), and it's HUGE! ("1/2 million of them. 2 of us. We've got some work to do.") They have one of those wedding reception/special event places, and it's shaped like a Disney castle. Seriously! And in front of it is Club Batman. You can see the sign. Apparently copyright laws aren't so formal in Korea...

I'm Learning French!!

Yes you read that correctly. I, Misty, am learning French. The reasons: 1) I've wanted to for a while, and 2) I am possibly going to Europe next summer!! OMG I AM SO EXCITED, even for the possibility!!! The cost is about $3100, which is an amazingly cheap price for EUROPE! (I can bring one or two of you if you want. Delaney can also bring one or two. Just fyi. The Europe trip includes Paris, Rome, possibly Venice, and more!! Super Awesome!!! The $3100 includes plane tickets, train tickets, all hotel fares, and 2 meals a day. It doesn't include tips, lunch, or Venice. But if we decide to add Venice to the lineup, $200 to $500 will be added to the $3100.)

But I have how to say what my name is (Je m'appelle Misty) and what is your name (Tu t'appelles comment?) and my mom got me one of those little kid' s French picture dictionaries. I'm so excited!!!
Sorry, Aly, for using double and triple exclamation points.

Doesn't Compute

My brain is fried for the moment. I've been doing Pre-Calculus homework, and it's too much for my head. (By the way, I'm doing section 1-2, functions) I still have 9 problems to do, but I had to take a break. How am I supposed to last the rest of the year?

I hope the rest of you are doing better then I am.

My Playlist...

So, I've posted my playlist on here so I can listen to my musica when I go to this blog. Warning: I have some seriously weird songs on here that I like anyway! You can skip 'em, if ya want, although some of them are seriously addictive...

Note: Please refrain from reading the next paragraph if your name is not Amanda.

I'll try to put some of the more mainstream sons at the top to help ease your musical tastes into this century, Amanda...Don't argue with me! You're going to listen to pop music and YOU'RE GOING TO LIKE IT, YOUNG LADY! NO MORE BROADWAY/JAZZ! UGH! "But I'm entitled to my own opinions-" No. No, you are not.

Guesswhatguesswhatguesswhatguesswhatguesswhat?!?!?!?!?! I got my learner's permit! I can officially drive with a parent in the passenger's seat! I'm SCARED! And guess what! Tyler got his license, so he can legally drive with me in the car! Weird, huh? WHOOT!

Sorry, at Young Women's today, we had a recipe exchange, and we all brought samples, and now I'm kinda high on sugar...

Have you guys ever just been obsessed with something for awhile, to the point where everything else isn't interesting? I got one of those when I found Escaflowne, (no insulting it just because it's anime, Aly! You're only allowed to insult it if you've seen it!) and now I keep talking about it, and no one knows what I'm talking about, so I can't have any interesting conversations.l..because if the conversation is about something else, I lose interest! Yergh! Random noises!
