A Lot of Sweet Stuff...

Ok, I'm the worst at posting...but I've been having way too much fun to sit down and look at these boring blogs! Just kiddin, I totally blog stalk, and I love love love to read everyone else's, I've just been too lazy to write anything.

First things first, biggest news EVER! Some of you know this, but some of you don't....drum sweet family is MOVING TO UTAH!!!! That's right, for good. My sisters and mom are flying out June 5th. My dad will be going back into the rehab place that we love in Missouri while my mom looks for a house and a job. Speaking of that, if any of you know of any job openings around here, let me know. Then, once they find a place and get somewhat settled then I think the plan is to have my bro Curtis fly out here with my dad (Curt's not moving out here, he'll be staying in MO to go to school). How fun is that?!?! I am really excited to have them out here, and be able to feel like I can physically contribute more to help em out.

Next, I got to go to Disneyland FOR THE FIRST TIME!! And shame on me for not going before. I loved every second of it. It was a total girly trip which was so fun. I hate to say it, but California Adventure rides were sweeter. But, you're right, the atmosphere at DL was WAY better. I think my favorite ride was the rollercoaster at CA, then Tower of Terror, and the Indiana Jones ride. Oh so fun. I'm sure you've all seen pics on Lydia's blog, so I won't post any. Oh, and those of you going this week...HAVE SOO MUCH FUN!

Now, onto some more sweet things, I GRADUATED!! Took all my finals (which were freakin easy this time--which is a first!), and aced my classes. I graduated in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (say that 5 times fast--without getting a speech impediment:) ). Now what you may ask?? GREAT question. Someone tell me! I'm applying for some jobs in the school systems, and some jobs through BYU (I'm a little hesitant to post it, because chances are I won't get any, but who cares!). If nothing pans out, secretary for Got Crap it is!!:) Seriously, if nothing works out I may think the Lord is trying to tell me something, I dunno! Anyway, Cheney did a great job speaking, in fact, all the speakers were excellent. President Hinckley, Elder Scott, and Elder Bednar were there as well. Thursday's comencement was sooo good. I'm really glad I went, even though we got there at 1, and it didn't start till 4!!! It was a long day. Friday's graduation where I actually walked was pretty good too, although I didn't enjoy it as much as Thursday's. But, it was so fun to see all my buddies again! So, here are a couple pictures, one of me (obviously), and the other of a Cheney protestor (so gay). THANK YOU everyone who were able to come, and THANK YOU to those of you who I know would have been there if you could (KJ and Sue:) ).

Another cool thing...Eric's parents got us a 2 night stay and the Grand America in Salt Lake. It was soo beautiful. We just relaxed. Slept in, went to lunch, went shopping, watched TV, worked on my Sunday School lesson, went to dinner, and watched a movie--fabulous!! I'll put a pic of that too.

What else....Eric and I are leaving Wednesday for Nauvoo for my brother's wedding--how cool is that?!?! I'll update you on that when I get back. Oh yes, and another cool thing I have to brag about...I ran 3 miles on the treadmill the other day in 28 minutes! I was so dang proud of myself--but I remembered that I HATE running. Why did I do it?? Just to say I did.

That's it for now--have a great week all'yall.

America's Next Top "Lame Show"

So I’m watching the show America’s Next Top Model the other day; what a freekin joke! I bet you anything this all started with some producer guy who told his friend, “Man models are so lame, they’ll do anything just to get the job no matter how stupid, and what’s even worse, they’ll be totally serious!” BAM … new show!

The whole point of the show I think is to make these girls look as stupid as they can, then slam em down when they don’t pull it off (if such a thing can realistically be pulled off). Take for example the “Drowned Rat” photo shoot. “I’m sorry Cassandra, I just don’t know what to tell you! When you were trying to portray that drowning rat I just… (breathing in through teeth) didn’t feel it. I didn’t believe you were actually drowning in the sewer… I’m sorry, you won’t be America’s Next Top Model. (sad music) Take your things and leave please.” (Somber music, girl exits while sobbing).

I guarantee Tyra Banks is busting up laughing as the girls are going all out on these retarded shoots. I think the comments from the girls are just as ridiculous. “Well Brittany, you’ve just finished your “Birthing Rhino” shoot…” “Uh huh.” “And Brittney I have to be honest…. (long pause with tense music) … You Nailed It!!!!” (girl screams for joy) “So how did you do it?” “Well I was just thinking to myself if I was a rhinoceros in labor, like how would I feel, or more importantly… how would I look? So I just acted like it was real and I guess I pulled it off! Yeeee! Sorry, ha, ha. I’m just soooo happy!”

Gay! Gay! Gay!

One thing I have to admit though, this Jaslene girl knocked the “Laser Beam” shoot right out of the park! Is she a girl or is she a green lasar? I can’t tell! Dang she’s good! Pffft.
