Facebook is tricky. I just read a message on the top of my profile that said 9 friends from KC think I'm dumb. So it sends you to this quiz, you take it, and at the bottom of the page, it has some nonsense about subscribing to their cell service for $10 a month. At the end of the ten questions- all terribly easy. The questions include how many degrees are in a right angle and what continent is Canada a part of. Then it asks how smart you are and has spaces for your cell number and pin.

Do I look like a complete idiot to you? So I guess it was going to tell me I got all the answers right, but I am a sucker, so now I owe them $10 a month for a stupid cell something or other. Yeah, so I didn't find out how smart I am. Meaning I'm a genius. Pah. Take that facebook makers.

Also, Christmas vacation has been good. I'm getting bored again. So i should prob. call some friends and talk. I haven't visited many people as of yet and there's a New Year's Dance I'm planning to attend Wed. That's about all that's going on with me.

Alright, now there are some pictures on here-

So let me see. The couple pictures I have on here I couldn't figure out how to format, so sorry some of them are sideways. Maybe someone can help me fix them over Christmas. The picture with me and all the dishes is the dog we ate for Thanksgiving and all the rotten foods they gave us to go with it. The picture with me and the statue that's sideways is a mermaid statue we saw in Pusan Korea before we ate the dog.

The characters in a line on the sidewalk were just a photo op. Fake food everywhere in the windows was one of my favorite things..always useful when you don't speak Japanese and want something good to eat. The metal bird was a cool thing we saw in...Hiroshima I think, or Fukuoka. We went all the way there and didn't have time to go inside. We used the toilet right before a busload of school children went through though. We figured the migratory birds were gone for the winter anyway, and I've seen stuffed birds before. Mostly we didn't have time to go through.

I'm going to Tiffanie Player's white elephant party tonight with Jeff and will be bringing a broken bucket with a cd called Moonstruck from the Ward's house. It's a movie starring Cher and Nicholas Cage. Believe me, someone will be excited to watch it. Then they'll be bummed out b/c it's a lame movie. That's about it for now. I am totally excited I've got some pictures. For more, check out facebook.

Candy? I love candy

This post has nothing whatsoever to do with candy, besides the fact that I love candy. As a blog response to all the lovely readers..thank you for posting comments, I love seeing them. I love all my girls, and any boys who may or may not wander in here just to see what I have been up to.

As an updater, this blog has been wonderful, because now I hardly email anyone at all. Turns out my sister deletes my emails without reading them anyway, so not everyone is missing out. Yesterday I curled my hair, bought some Afrost Gatorade mix, and sent my brother in Portugal a Christmas package. I also visited my Aunt Pam, Uncle Gary, and Grandma Enid in SLC. It was a nice visit and my Uncle Gary gave me some good man advice.

I also called Jeff. I've been missing him and regretting my decision to break up with him. I figured we probably couldn't date again, because he went on three dates over the break and because he told me it was probably best if we stayed friends. When I got back from SLC we went bowling.

Turns out I'm still bad at bowling, it may have been the heavy ball I was using, and Jeff doubled my score on both games we played. However, he did manage to forgo getting a turkey- three strikes in a row- despite all my encouragement, or discouragement on that score. I also forgot to bring socks. Well, it would have been forgetting if I had known we were heading to a bowling alley and didn't wear any. Turns out socks with sandals looks dorky and I've tried jumping out of the dork bowl many times.

I decided against the $2 vending machine socks, and almost retched when pulling my foot out almost took out the entire innard section of the shoe. I should have bought the socks. Anyway, any future foot fungus I will blame on Jeff for picking bowling. Everyone else who bowls wears socks and I know they spray them with fungucide after every use. I'll post if my feet start feeling itchy.

We bowled and I lost. Then a guy from Jeff's Bulgarian mission came and bowled next to us. He was a very nice boy and had a mustache. Man, mustaches kill me. Second round, I lost again. On the way out, we decided there isn't much to do in Provo and went to the movies to see the new James Bond movie.

There's something wonderful about the dim lights of theatres and somehow, Jeff ended up holding my hand. I might have helped him a little. It felt wonderful. I have missed him. It was a good flick and gave some closure to the last JB vid.

Then we went to Jeff's house and played Wii for an hour or so. I am terrible, but still ended up winning a couple tennis rounds, and the overall golf event. Heh. It was fun, we had some good times. Funny, but I missed seeing his roomies too. Guess it is good we all get along.

Since I usually put my relationships into ruination by trying to figure them out, I'm just going to ride this one out. Patience, hmmm. Right now I feel good about it all. Jeff's not going to ask me what we are and I'm certainly not going to ask. Boys, pah.

On a different note, I have gotten an email back from a publisher who wants to buy my book! Hooray! My Dad also said a number of my self addressed envelopes are waiting for me at home and I am excited to read all of the rejection slips when I get there. I guess as long as somebody likes my book I don't care about all the rejection. However, if someone else wants to publish me we'll have to see what kinds of benefits they are willing to offer. It's exciting I've heard from so many so fast! I was expecting it to take months and it has barely been one. Hooray for dreams and aspirations! Now I just need a job to tide me over until I'm a famous authoress...

Looking into my closet you also might note I currently have ten shirts and so many pairs of pants. I also, coincidentally have ten pairs of shoes. Dresses and underwear/socks are a different story. When I go home for Christmas I will be looking into a wardrobe expansion, not huge, just some change.

You may be saddened, or relieved, to find I have given my ninja turtle shirt to DI. I have decided to stop dressing like a ten year old. I believe this goal was made the same day my friend Mike told me he was turning my name in for What not to Wear. I didn't think I was that bad, but I have owned many of my shirts, clothes for close to ten years- not even an exaggeration. It may have coincided with the week my sister told me she was reading a book about how to be a stunner.

Now I'm not willing to wear heels every day of the week, but I am sick of my clothes. I realize certain items of cloth have also given me the look of a chubby four year old when really, I'm not four years old at all. Hmm. So there it is. Bon's pretty excited, but we'll see how far I get. You know I've never been a shopper.

Well then, these posts might be getting longer. I promise, pictures some day will be inputted to enhance this blog. Much love! Merry Christmas!

I was going to put pictures on my blog today and thought my camera battery was charging all yesterday. I guess it wasn't because the battery is still exhausted. Stupid. So there it is, one day I will get pictures on here. I hope. Also, congratulations to Amy Clay who is having a baby. Woot.

Second, an update on Jeff. Turns out I have been talking with him on the phone because he is in St. George still from Thanksgiving. Our conversations have been good, but he did tell me it's probably best if we are just friends. He also went on quite a few dates over the break. Wow, didn't waste any time. That's cool. So yeah, it is good he's been dating other people and now I can move on, but I hope to stay friends. He's amazing.

I have been watching lots of movies, but also got some books from the library. Reading has always been a nice fallback plan. By the way, I'm never using this lab computer again because all the keys stick and it's driving me insane. Pictures later.

Yes, I am back from Japan. However, turns out my camera battery is exhausted. It did take a lot of pictures last week, so I will try and get some pictures from Japan on here by the end of this week. We shall see. Mostly, if you really want to see my pictures you can look on facebook.

Japan was awesome. We saw a lot of temples and took a lot of trains and buses. The flight back was 9 hours, a 4 hour layover, and 2 hrs back to SLC from San Francisco, California. The boy I went with, James, got food poisoning from dinner Sunday. That means he was sick for 15 hours of travel. I know, highly unfortunate. At the place we ate, I got chicken curry and he got breaded pork on ramen. The curry was amazing, but he got sick. Really sick. I felt bad for him the whole trip back.

I would like to say, I am greatly relieved to be away from his company, as a week is a long time to be with one person. Especially if you argue with that person a lot. Which I did. He thought it was flirting, but I'm pretty sure we just weren't getting along. Overall it was a fun trip though.

There were a couple times in there I got frustrated b/c we were lost. Well, I like to know where I am and don't like being hungry or tired. I'm like a 4 yr old in that way. Now I'm back and ready to find a job and settle into my life again. Hmmm. Maybe I'll check out some good books.
