Okay tonight Kel and I went on a much needed date! We took ourselves to the movies to watch "27 Dresses". And yes of course it was a chick flick, but it was a wonderful chick flick. We were in a theater with mostly all girls, there were maybe three or four boys there. And you could tell it was third or fourth date occasions, as any other level of the relationship they wouldn't have been there. But it was so entertaining to "ohh" and "ahhh" out loud in the scenes that we loved and hated. But over all the movie was sooo good. The idea of the movie, the actors, the characters, the lines and just all of it! If you get a second, go see it, cause you will love it! Trust me you won't, that is if you are a girl, be disapointed!

Sunday, January 20, 2008
Today is Sunday, and that is when Jon and I do a lot of our shopping for groceries. Usually the stores are not as crowded and we like all the room we have. Today, however, Jon said he wanted to go to Wal Mart. Jon needed to purchase some new clippers and he figured this would be the best place to go. I myself knew better, but went a long with the idea anyway.
The isles at Wal Mart were packed with yelling kids and stressed out parents. They were not, however filled with food and a large selection. It looked like some store going out of business and their final sale was today. Walking around we saw so many amazing sights, really well groomed mullets, families with no less than 3 carts filled with junk food. So many wonderful treasures for the eyes! But we were most amused by the wonderful experience that awaited us at the check out line.
In front of us in line there was a woman and two kids. She has two different loads, one she was paying for and one that was paid for by WIC. She was obviously frustrated, but by what we were unsure of yet. Then down the isle came a man, whom I can only assume was her husband. She yelled out to him to go and get another gallon of milk for the WIC order. Everything seemed normal, but maybe she was a bit annoyed at life in general. Then the situation was drastically escalated within seconds!
Her husband came down the isle again with the gallon of milk, obviously in a hurry. And here is the conversation that occurred....
Woman: "Where is my card?"
Man: "I gave it back to you last night."
Woman: "No you didn't! Where is it?"
Man: "I gave it back to you last night!"
Woman: "No you f!@#$%g didn't! Give me my card!"(Her kids standing right next to her)
Man: "I put it on your wallet last night when I got home."
Woman: "No you f@#$&*$g didn't! Because you are a stupid mother f$#@!r and irresponsible I had to use this card." (as she shoves the card in his face)
A few seconds pass and the cashier informs her that the milk she chose is not correct for the WIC program. The lady turns to her husband...
Woman: "Go get the (such and such) milk. Hurry up, be quick and don't f#$k around with my time."
The man runs off and the lady decides that the children are now in some need some colorful language.
Woman: "Don't touch that s#@t! And stop f$%#$*^g with your brother."
The young boys look at me and give me a very evil smile. And in my mind I know exactly what kind of life these two little boys are leading. Right then the husband comes back with the correct milk and they pay and are on their way. I was floored that a woman spoke to her husband in that way, either in public or private. Have some respect for your spouse, children and the people around you! Anyway, had to share this with those of you reading my blog. Jon says he is still stressed over that lovely experience.

O.K. most of you know I am into football, really into football. This evening I was at Albertsons getting some J-E-L-L-O, and stumbled into a wonderful conversation. There were two guys and two girls on an obvious date getting snacks. I heard a male voice say, "Tony Romo is an over-rated quarterback, he sucks." I started to laugh out loud and they all turned to face me. For those of you who don't know, Tony Romo is the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys...now I don't care too much for the Cowboys but you have to give credit where credit is due. So they all turned their heads in attempt to see what I might be laughing at. I looked at the guys and said, "You have got to be kidding me!?!"
Well in an obvious attempt to not be insulted by a girl about football in front of his female friend...he said, "What you like him and the Cowboys? Do you even know who that is anyway?" Again, most of you that know me know by now this really pushed my buttons. What, just because I have a vagina and breasts I can't know about football??? WTF? So I felt it was time to put this metro-sexual in his place. So I began my rant..."There are literally only 2 maybe 3 quarterbacks in the NFL today that are better. For the three years that he has been playing he has taken the Cowboys to the playoffs every year. What other quarterback has done that? Brett Favre and Tom Brady, and a questionable Peyton Manning are the only quarterbacks that can outshine him. There is a reason he is #3 in the NFL this year, and that is on stats talking not someones opinion. Bill knew what he was doing when he put in Tony and didn't even look back for a reason."
If he had a tail it would have been tucked between his legs as he stood there looking at me. The girls started laughing and the friend of the metro-sexual said to me, "Never in my life did I think I would be standing in a grocery store lane watching my friend be put in his place about football by a girl." As we were all leaving the store they noticed me getting into my car. They said to me, "Nice car!" To which I replied "You can come over here and look, but your hater friend has to stay over there." Again another uproar of laughter and we all went our separate ways.
So to all you men out there that think you know more about football then all woman...you will get your turn. Just give me time to map my football knowledge tour around the US and I will be happy to argue with ya. Okay that is my rant for the evening. Thanks for listening...er...ahh...I mean reading.

Usually by this day in a new year I have something exciting happen, but I have to admit right now I've got nothing! LOL, pretty lame life huh? Just hanging out and spending time with my family, and I can say that isn't a bad thing at all. However, I did have a wonderful opportunity to watch an amazing football game. Watching the Seattle Seahawks play the Washington Redskins. This game was by far one of the most entertaining games I have ever seen! Go HAWKS, and now we are on our way to Green Bay to shut down the Packers. Now hopefully we can show up like we did against the Redskins!!! Anyway, one of my random thoughts for the day. And I added a picture of Jon and I from one of our Vegas trips. I made Jon walk like 6 miles in his shoes to get to Tiffany's to get that necklace that I wanted. LOL It was so worth it...especially because after that we were able to enjoy the evening with one of our good friends! RUM and COKE! YAY :) Alright well I am saying goodnight and hopefully something fun happens here really soon and I can post it.

So many of my friends and family have these little blog things. So as with myspace, it was only a matter of time until I started my own little land of blogging paradise. I guess I am never sure as to what people have to blog about, I mean *that* much can't be happening in everyone's life on a daily basis, right? Then I start to read everyones blogs, and I was happily surprised. It isn't only me that has a non-daily-eventful day! It seems people just write in there on holidays, when something exciting or significant happens, or when they feel like venting. And dang it, I am pretty sure I can keep up with that!
Christmas and New Years came without much of anything. No crazy, life changing experiences. Honestly in a way I am glad, but also sad that I had nothing nutty to send off 2007 with. Now Jon and I had the option to go to New York to celebrate the 2008 coming. However if you know Jon and I at all, you know that it is difficult to get us to Salt Lake City let alone New York. So we backed out and decided to spend the time at a friends in Orem. It was a lot of fun to spend time with people I have not seen in way too long. We brought in the New Year with Rock Band and Margaritas. At midnight I had my kiss and headed home, exciting huh? But wait the best part is about to come! The next day was spent putting away Christmas decor and cleaning! Yipee!!! I know you are all so jealous and I am sorry your life isn't as exciting as mine, maybe someday.
Alright, well that was my first of what I hope is many attempts at blogging. If you didn't enjoy it, then I am so sorry. I will try harder next time...or something.
Here is a little picture of me and a Bentley I saw at a Airport Parking Lot. Bet you don't have any clue it isn't mine huh?
