The Globetrotters came to town and guess who was there for the show....
maybe even part of the show...

this girl.
I couldn't get that Sweet Georgia Brown tune out of my head for the next two days, but why would I want to really?! The game was so much fun.

My niece Jacq asked if she could pick out my outfit the other day...all of my outfit. She chose earrings, socks, shoes, hair name it. She even opened a drawer and asked if she could pick out which "boob things" I wore. From the mouths of babes... It was the pinkest most sparkliest outfit I have ever worn. LOVE HER.

I wonder how many people actually took the entire cart up to a register before the sales staff decided they needed to post the hand-written addendum at the bottom.

"Quick, honey, ALL items ONLY 75 cents! Back the truck up!"

I have a small rivalry with my brothers to see who can give my parents the best present. Granted the Elvis impersonator coming to our house to give the sash my mom never got from Elvis live in concert, the edible flower arrangement, the stripper visiting them at dinner while at Sizzler, a hand full of lottery tickets, and that dang flannel shirt (which was purchased from a THRIFT SHOP) were good attempts. However, I think I took the cake this year.

Ever since I can remember, my mom has enjoyed reading tacky romance novels. You know, with Fabio and his throbbing manhood aboard a pirate ship. So what could be better than to place my mother as the main character in her own romance novel? I'll answer that...NOTHING! That's right, at you can enter in awesome personal information (names, cities, favorite colors, personal traits, etc) to make your book unique and you can choose either mild or wild scenes. To make it even better, I had a special photo shoot session and put an awesome romance novel pose on the cover.

**Taking off glove and slapping your cheek** I challenge you to beat this one, brothers. Happy Birthday Moms.

My friend Craig and I went to the Jazz game last night in SLC (goodbye Jerry Sloan).
That guy in red next to us, yeah he was booing the loudest.

It was fun blah blah blah. That is not my main thought. It's that we were in Salt Lake City, where there are a lot of Ute fans, and the BYU Cougarettes dance team were there to perform a number at half time. What happened? They were booed. (I even heard someone say, "They are gonna divide the fans in the stands with this one.") I know, the University of Utah and Brigham Young University are long time rivals, but that does not mean you should boo the dancers who are there to perform for your entertainment. For heaven's sake the game and performance had nothing to do with BYUofU rivalry. This is not the first time I have witnessed Utah fans behave this way.

Remember the guy who told me he could stand there all night just to ruin my photo.

I think it is wonderful to cheer for your team. Awesome. But I think it is total unsportsmanlike conduct when you boo the opposing team as they walk on to the court/field before any game play has occurred. I am afraid I have to agree with Mr. Max Hall and say
Ute fans ARE classless.

I keep cycling the same socks through the wash and to the top of my drawer.
Too bad they happen to be Christmas and Halloween socks.

Yes, it is February.
Yes, I donated blood today and the cute guy who drew it might have seen my holiday socks.
Yes, I was embarrassed.

Ever since my friend Jeff posted a video tribute about his beloved blue cup to the song Goodbye My Lover (you must see it here...I laugh as if it's the first time I've ever heard it every time), I've had James Blunt on my mind. Amazingly, I heard he was going to perform a small show at Flemings in SLC and I happened to score tickets to it. He was beautiful.

I don't normally have super star crushes, but I'd totally buy him on ebay tomorrow if I knew he was for sale!
When I arrived at the venue, I went to use the restroom. As I was coming back to the room where the concert was I noticed him sitting at a table taking a photo of himself. Well, I wasn't sure if it was him. Then when he walked into the room to sing a few songs, I found my guess was true.

DUH! Why didn't I sit down next to him and jump in his photo? I could kick myself. We could be eating steak together right now over my American howdy partnerish laughs and his super cute english muffin talk. If only I could replay that moment...I wouldn't make the same mistake.

So if any of you have connections out there...send the bloke back to me!
