Oh Karl and Freddy, I’m sure you meant well,

but your ideas (or at least the misinterpretation of them)

have caused SOOOOO many problems.

Communities cannot survive without communication.

“It’s hard to be black and not Mormon living in Provo,”

said a new friend to me recently.  Again, I’m a WASM woman, so I won’t pretend to understand.  But I feel for you bro.  And you always have a friend in me…

If Henry David Thoreau’s mom did his laundry while he sat and wrote about a pond,

can this woman do mine while I sit and write this blog?

JUST KIDDING!  Mama Wilk’s done MORE than enough for me already, true story!  Also, I did a load this morning.  Phew!

P.S.  Yes, I just compared this blog to “Walden” and myself to one of the great American transcendentalists.  And yes, I am expecting a…you guessed it….THUNDERBOLT OF BLASPHEMY!

A new friend, a compliment, and an answered question all in one blog post-TRIPLE WHAMMY!

Screen shot 2013-08-12 at 2.30.47 PM

This is Alan (he is very good looking and gave me permission to use his name, but asked to not have his picture included).  He is a new friend who lives with his sister and brother-in-law here in Utah having recently moved from Long Beach, California.  I don’t know him very well yet, but I can tell he is a good man who respects women, works hard, and is seeking truth.  Alan is currently investigating the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  I ain”t gonna hide the fact that I hope he joins, but whatever he decides, I am glad to have a new friend!  Oh, and he sent me the following in an email.  Totes made this girl’s day!

The Surprise of a Lifetime!

This is Thomas:

Thomas is a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  He attended Southern Virginia University (where he did music with my mama!), and after graduating, made the brave decision to serve a full-time LDS mission at the age of 24.  When making a quick stop in Utah to stock up on missionary gear, Thomas experienced a BIG surprise.  Check it out!

So awesome, huh?  Actually, he was one of 15 soon-to-be missionaries who got this star treatment:

Godspeed, Thomas!  And Deseret First Credit Union, mad props.

I was a satirist…

Image

before I even fully knew what that meant!

Alexander Pope and Jonathan Swift would be so proud!

Check out my approach to satire here. 

For those who may not quite understand, I was exploiting the stereotype that Mormon girls often get married and pregnant very young.  Here is another self-satire.

My present to you for making it to the 400th post? RAP VIDEO!

No beatin’ around the bush on that title (figuratively OR literally)!  I had my NEW friend Kemp and my OLD friend Carlos help me out.  Check it stat (and please excuse my being a little dance happy.  I’m not as smooth/subtle as my friends):

And if you think that was entertaining (probably mainly because Katherine was making a fool of herself), it actually wasn’t anything compared to what these guys can do for real.  Here’s just a taste of their INSANE TALENT.  And yes Mom, the following is improvised.

Here’s Carlos’s youtube channel. 

And here’s Kemp’s twitter. 

Oh, and just had to include this one too:
