Valentines Catastrophe (No, people, it does not involve an apostrophe with fur)

So for Valentines Day, me 'n the Baylster made our parents dinner. We were planning on going to Bear LAke over the weekend, but were deterred by the insane anount of cars that were off the road...anyway, we made the dinner out of things we already had on hand, so it was spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread, Jello, and cake! I know, I know...weird mix, eh?

We burnt everything but the Jello.

However, we salvaged the evening! How you may ask? Well:

The heartshaped cake was all perfect and full of golden heart shaped goodness when a certain someone put the cake on a burner that was left on...ok, ok, it was me! We hurry to get it off and rip the cake in three parts! So, Baylee makes another thin cake out of the leftover batter, we put it over the other cake (we cut the bottom off and glued the rest together with frosting), and frost it. We end up with a yummy layered cake!

I inevitably burn the meatballs while dealing with the cake drama. Bay and I cut the bottom off them, and we end up with pleasantly smoky flavored meatballs!

The garlic bread was left in a little too long while we were cutting off the bottoms of the meatballs, but they turned out deliciously crunchy!

Are you amazed? Yup, we were too!

This is random.

1. lifetime warranty-when it breaks, its lifetime is over and the warranty is expired.
2. blood oath-don't break the oath, or I'll spill your blood (you can probably guess who came up with that one)
3. slumgullion-this is a real word! It's a type of meat stew.
4. catastrophe-"If the English language made any sense, a catastrophe would be an apostrophe with fur."-Doug Larson

Hey, so Ty was talking to me after seminary and told me his best friend Kendall got a 35 on his ACT. I proceeded to say WHAAAAAAT?!?!?! (Hence the title) That's crazy! 35?!?! That's the first person I know who's gotten better than 32(Aly's dad)

Also, Shannah's/my birthdays are coming up. What do you say we do a combined party thingamajig (that way you don't have to buy presents. Isn't that convenient?) with all of us? Like the 21st or something? Right in the middle?

SNOW DAY-ish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At NUAMES the power was out so the school decided it would be a snow day, sorta.

We stayed for minimum day so we don't have to make it up,

but it's just past noon and I'm home.

The power came on during 7th, but they didn't change the schedule.

This is the first, and probably last, snow day i have ever experienced, It is just awesome!!!!!!!!!

P.S. These are some pictures I took for Digital Photo that i think look awesome.

I just couldn't resist.

sorry, I know. but I totally agree. somewhat. if only I could "x" all three!

Righting Wrong Writing

OK, there was this HILARIOUS(ly nerdy) article in the Reader's Digest. It was titled "Righting Wrong Writing: Heroically persnickety typo crusaders set the U.S. straight." Seriously! These people travel the country, "changing the world in [their] own humble way." Some of my favorites:

They were denied permission to fix "Washigton" in a supermarket, so they asked another employee who cheerfully said yes. "It was the classic When-Mom-Says-No-Ask-Dad move."

They jumped a barbed wire fence and run across cactus-covered scrubland to fix a sign advising tourists to bring their "camera's" "That was a big one. The apostrophe was about the size of my head."

They changed the electric signs in the checkout lines from "12 Items or Less" to "12 Items or Fewer."

In a National Park, they added a comma, changed womens' to women's and somehow ignored the urge to fix emense (which I assume was supposed to be immense). The National Park Service was upset. Apparently, the sign was done by a famous architect, and they were fined $3,035 and had to promise to stay out of of national parks for a year.

Yeah... ^_^

P.S. I read "Uglies" I liked it! It was weird, but good.

Science Olympiad!!


Okay, so like I was snooping around on the SHS website, you know, out of curiousity... and then I read the newsletter, and Hillary and Shannah's names were on it and they were going to the Science Olympiad Bobby Sock Comp. on Saturday. YAY!!!

K, so for Hillary and Shannah... what events are you in? My friend and I will show you around the school, and then after, we were gonna run around like crazy madmen bugging people. You in? And to get this out of the way now... Davis isn't as big as Syracuse, so Shannah.... go ahead, brag. Can't wait to see you there! (fyi... I was just recruited into Ecology last week and have no idea what in the world I'm doing. Any advice?)
