comic relief

So I may or may not be one of the last to see this youtube video but I think it is hilarious. First of all his facial expressions are priceless and second of all this kid is probably like 9 but has the face of a 35 year old man- I think I see a faint mustache. Thanks for the comic relief, manchild.

This year's relief society broadcast was amazing and I recommend any of those who weren't able to attend, to watch/read it.  President Monson's talk was particularly moving.  The topic was about not judging each other and having charity - a concept we have all heard before but he teaches it in such a eloquent, moving way.  He mentioned one of my favorite quotes, "If you judge people, you have no time to love them." -Mother Teresa and shared some great stories.  A particularly great excerpt from his talk:

"Charity is having patience with someone who has let us down; it is resisting the impulse to become offended easily. It is accepting weaknesses and shortcomings. It is accepting people as they truly are. It is looking beyond physical appearances to attributes that will not dim through time. It is resisting the impulse to categorize others."

Watch the broadcast here.

Wendy & the Lost Boys*

My parents are out of town so I fed these starving "lost boys" for Sunday dinner.  Besides the beef strips turned jerky fiasco I say everything went well!  Just being mom/"wendy" for the time being..

satisfied smiles and full bellies 

*Ronnie (head of table, with a ridiculous smile) later told my friend Mandi that I was like Wendy feeding the lost boys- hence the title of this post. Just giving credit where credit is due.

Harold- we (mostly me) missed you!

Sorry day club, but as the last remaining survivor of this club I think it is time to put you to rest- I've got more serious things to do.. like work.  For all those who weren't apart of day club (us graduated, jobless, often living at our parents, group of friends that would hang out during the day because we had nothing else going on), it was a real hit and we're sorry you missed out.  We spent many warm summer days by the pool (whichever pool we could sneak into), driving around, eating, afternoon movies, shopping (with all the money we were NOT making), and anything else we felt like.  But as the days grew a little colder and summer drew to an end, most of my fellow day clubbers went back to school or got jobs.  I was left to carry on day club myself, and boy did I.  But day club just isn't the same without any compadres, so I too took to looking for a job and after a few weeks of trying I feel lucky to have found myself working at OrangeSoda.*  So day club, don't consider this a resignation from your club but more of a sabbatical. You know someday I hope to return. 

Until then,

*No, I do not work for a soft drink company, however, there is plenty of orange soda around and lots of orange in the interior decorating, but I do, rather, work for an online marketing that wants to add some "fizz" to the hum drum of online/internet marketing.
