U2 has some excellent, inspiring, rocking, wistful, strong Christian/Biblically themed, romantic, slightly sexy, and overall QUALITY music (duh!).
Lyrics here (these profound words have brought me closer to Christ. TRULY!)
They (Bono and his boys) also have quite a few really weird songs…
Saw U2 in concert on May 24, 2011. ONE OF THE BEST NIGHTS OF MY LIFE!
*if you don’t listen to that first song, you are crazy as the second song is…
so we’re here to audition!
What would you prefer us to sing/play first? Have you heard of a British woman named Natasha Bedingfield (TOTAL anachronism, I know. Just go with it, please!)
PS. That “food poisoning” may or may not have been accidental. If you find any mysterious substance in my car, I must have been framed! But rest assured, it’s only temporary. Greta and Rigita will be fine come a few weeks. I may fight my way to the top, but I don’t believe in murder. And my PS is getting longer than the rest of the post, so better say adios. Actually, come to think of it, let the family serenade you:
Nephi and Laman, what did I tell ya?
PS. The David Beckham game was AWESOME!
for everyone but you….
I always have to be aware of cameras in case the paparazzi are around, know what I mean?
but this is definitely in the top 3.
The whole thing is AMAZING, but if I had to pick one or two lines to highlight, it would be this:
So when you start feeling like the world’s coming down on you, and that somebody feels like you’re not good enough or smart enough or thin enough, and that’s getting sent to you, like a psychic getting sent to ya, like a pyschic getting sent to ya, just ask for names. And guess what? There are no names. It’s all just fog, it’s all just a made up fog in a hall of mirrors, it’s all garbage, it doesn’t exist, so just do away with all that negative energy; it doesn’t even exist, it’s not even real….when people see other people having a good time and not questioning it, they just like to bring it all down, ya know. “I WANT NAMES!” from now on. And let me tell you something. I’ve been through my life, and I got bumped, and I got bruised, and I got kicked to the ground., but I never actually got a name the whole time. And therefore, I disregard all of it, and assume that I am loved the world round.
Whoops, guess that was a few more than 2 lines. If it’s all meat, you can’t cut any out!
Actually the Best/ Celestial was that kiss, but some things are too sacred to photograph. Yes I just compared my brief kiss with Andy to the LDS Temple, and yes I am expecting a thunderbolt of blasphemy.
Oh,wanna know more about Celestial/Telestial/Terrestrial? Check it stat:
And wanna know more about good, better, best? Check it, stat:
After all, we ARE all VIPs.
And, I do like picking up people (whom I know/trust) from the airport when I can, but I also won’t reject gas money/food/a good time in return, know what I mean?
P.S. That sign was for Maizy (before her days as a married woman, of course)! I don’t make signs for/pick up myself 🙂
I have seen Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband in concert three times. They are excellent musicians, creative songwriters and also very, very funny guys. I distinctly remember Ryan saying that this song was inspired by text message exchanges between himself and his wife. Awesome! So that’s just another plug for what I talked about earlier concerning saving your text-messages. Who knows, maybe you have a great hit in the making. Do it, ya’ll!
(me and my girls with some of the boys from the band)
And I know I should let the song speak for itself, but I just can’t help but give a little commentary. First of all, the chord structure is the same as Cannon. And I’m loving the trumpets/brassy sound of it all. And finally the lyrics? So cute 🙂
is one of the greatest compliments I’ve ever received. And within the past few days, I’ve heard it THRICE! As a friend, woman, writer, Christian, Latter-day Saint, and all the other things I am, I will do my very best to live up to that trust. And though your literal life is not in my hands (not in the medical field like Sam, Maizy, and Drew), I still consider it a very sacred responsibility. So thanks…
Just found this video from about 3 years ago. Watching it was fun. And funny. And painful (is there ANYONE who likes his/her own speaking voice?) But what’s incredible is how much I see myself and all my core beliefs again. Humor, beauty, kindness, expression, creativity, Christ, understanding. Not bad. Even if it wasn’t one of my better hair days 🙂 Now I wanna go find me an apricot!
“The cicada fest was like the plague in the Old Testament!”
I love colors. And I love dressing to IMpress, as well as EXpress.
But I want people to see and remember not just my clothes, but also ME and my natural beauty (enhanced a little with makeup and occasionally fake lashes). And when you wear a lot of bright things that stand out, there can be too many things to look at. So maybe if I wanna wear a bright color, I should just stick to one.
I love my sista, yes I do. But some days it’s hard not to be jealous. Scratch that, ALL days it’s hard not to be jealous. Now I’m not saying that I don’t have anything going for me, but hermana has a hot husband who could catch fish with his teeth, a great job inserting catheters and stuff like that, and has generally made a very good transition into this adult life.
And me? No husband (yet?). Not quite set on this whole career thing. And even though this blog has been a HUGE part of my journey of self-discovery and expression, still sorting out life.
So really. Is it any wonder (Kat is keen on Keane!) I gave her this look (on her wedding day no less)?
AND my hair didn’t look that cute that day. Darnie.
*read into the black and white symbolism in every way possible way you can and you will likely be correct….
*this picture was NOT staged in any way…
How do YOU deal with feelings of jealousy/inadequacy
when it comes to your family members’
accomplishments, achievements, etc.?
Don’t do the death look at a wedding. Just don’t.
If 2 people are getting to know/courting/dating, whatever you wanna call it, that’s awesome. But once the kiss comes, whole new game plan. I mean, I don’t need to have a ring or anything. But here’s what:
YOU SHOULDN’T BE KISSING TWO PEOPLE AT THE SAME TIME!
Especially not literally.
“What do kisses mean when robbed of their sacredness?”
Oh, and the following video is for a certain someone who just may have inspired this post. I am NOT angry, I am NOT vindicative, but I AM super good with the wordplay and just had to do an anonymous shout-out. I don’t rat anyone out, but friend just COUNT (literally!) how many references I make:
How many did you find (it’s over 10…)? Oh, the travesty…
“You know I ain’t gonna dis you on the Internet…”
*had to modify the spelling, but only ever so slightly
*ain’t too old for matching outfits for long distance races
*in pain when this pic was taken (but still smiling cuz I’m with my SISTA!)
Core Beliefs: you know 🙂
Disclaimer: The title refers to me! I would never in a million years call someone else ugly (especially not my dear sister Maizy). Just ain’t my style 🙂 And I also know I’m not really ugly, either. Enough ado. Proceed:
If this girl:
can turn into this in a few short years:
then maybe there’s still hope for this girl:
*everyone loves a good makeover-that’s what romantic comedies are made for…
*immodesty once again, will I ever learn? I’M WEARING A TOWEL I SWEAR YOU JUST CAN’T SEE!
*fresh outta the shower makes my makeup look like AMAZING!
*juxtaposition of beauty and ugliness (is there a euphemism for this word? its kinda mean)
*that first pic was Maizy’s FB profile picture so I know she wouldn’t mind

He looks at her….
She looks at him….
They look at each other…
and for just a moment, in this painful and entropic existence, all is right in the world.
and sometimes they even let me hang out with them too!
#3rd wheel but i like it

My life and my purpose. Is it all worth it? You are gonna turn out fine.
BUT YOU GOTTA KEEP YOUR HEAD UP!
Moments after this picture was taken Andy kissed me! Partial lip/partial cheek kiss, but a kiss indeed. And oh what a kiss it was. I swore I’d never publicly divulge that information because I didn’t want to exploit Andy for his fame and envisioned an actual romantic future with him, but brother got himself a wife, that ship has sailed, a now cat’s outta the bag! And yes, my sister can be a witness in court….

Sadly, this famous painting by Edvard Munch captures the general feeling/ psyche/uncertainty/insecurity/depression/ spirituality/ identity/crisis of many people not only of the time when it was painted at the turn of the 19th century, but also of many people today in 2013. There have been times in my own life when I could photoshop my own face into that distorted figure and call it a self-portrait. So what is to be done? No easy answer, but here’s a thought: no matter your religion/ beliefs/ camp/political leaning, let’s at least try to show some love, respect, and kindness to try and ease that feeling a little. And maybe sometimes we can dance in the parking lot 🙂
