Coming Home

So, this week was Woodbridge's homecoming week. And what a week it was! First of all, I didn't dress up at all. I really just wasn’t that into it. I did go to the game…and the dance though! The game was on Thursday, which meant the pep rally was too…this made it a little less exciting than if we had been celebrating an imminent weekend or something fun like that! I took a nap before the game which resulted in me showing up late. I picked up Hannah and we were off to cheer for the Warriors. We parked in the Library lot and just as soon as we started walking toward the filed, we heard a bunch of sirens…turned around to find that they were right behind us. We asked some lady passing by if she knew what was going on. This is what she said: “Some of the moms of the football players order pizza, and I guess it was bad taste” Let me know if you have any idea what she meant. We got to the game just in time! As we were approaching the gate, Class Councils were setting up their props for the half time show. We stood by the railing and saw all four numbers (it’s too bad the seniors didn’t win…we saw it coming though) and Devon get crowned Queen. Hannah and I kind of pretended like we were going to stay for the second half, but after another glance at the score board (it didn’t look good); we decided to go to In-N-Out! Yum! Yum! I ordered fries and a shake and was content and could be! I later realized that Thursday was Potato Day which ended up working out perfectly! Hannah and I asked the cashier for some water cups. And then he left. I swear we were waiting at the counter for 5 minutes before he finally came back! I was so confused. He gave us the water and said, “I had to go all the way to Kentucky for those cups. (Awkward pause) The things I do for my job.” Me and Hannah just looked at each other for a while…he seemed like he thought he had actually gone to Kentucky! So I replied, “Thanks?” and then went back to our table. Hannah swears that this guy looked just like Brick from Anchorman; I have no opinion since I have never seen the movie. Oh Hannah… Friday was a regular day at school and when I got home, I went straight to bed. This was a problem because Lindsey, Lacey and I had planned to meet at Lindsey’s house at 6:00—and since I woke up at 6:30, the plan didn’t really happen. I eventually got up and dragged myself over to Lindsey’s…got ready for the dance in the car on the way to CPK, and then drove down to Dana Point where I attended the happiest Homecoming on Earth! (Where I was one of 319 attendees) We even got Mickey Mouse ears! So worth it. It was a fun dance. Most of the people on the dance floor were seniors which is why we had such a blast. All those who didn’t go, really did miss out. And that is my account of Homecoming (why is it called homecoming?). And btw, happy Naitonal Buy-A-Doughnut Day!

tomorrow: HALLOWEEN! (as if you needed reminding)

It’s me against the world, so I’ve come to find out. This past week, a few others (I better not name them in case a retaliation is in the works…Callister already knows I’m involved so I’m not compromising my identity or anything) and I have set out on quite the journey. We were on a mission—a mission against our seminary teacher. We decided we were going to prank James Callister every night for one week. It didn’t quite work out that way and has actually evolved into something much more involved. We started on Sunday night with the classic Dixie Cupping experience. If you’re being pranked by me, you must first experience the Dixie Cupping. Seminary the next morning was hard to get through without laughing hysterically. As each one of the involved walked into class, Bro Callister personally asked them how their weekend had been and commented on how tired they looked. Don’t worry—we all brought food to stuff in our faces for moments when we just couldn’t cover our smiles. Monday night: Oreos. This was by far our best. I bought six packages of Chocolate Sandwich Cookie (Albertson’s brand—they were cheaper) and we “unscrewed” them all. We placed them onto the garage door and made it polka dotted! (best ever)
Seminary the next morning was a little more bearable…mainly due to the fact that I slept through it. I’m pretty sure I was psychologically suppressing the fact the I was supposed to get up early because I didn’t think I could handle it. Tuesday night: POPCORN. I spent hours standing in front of our air popper and even had to take a trip to Albertson’s for more kernels. after that, I was on my way to meet up with the other trouble makers with three trash bags of popcorn and two rolls of butcher paper. The plan: cover the door in butcher paper leaving a space about three inches deep between the door and the paper. Tape down on all sides and fill with paper. The idea: the paper would create a vacuum of popcorn. This would cause a gust of popcorn to be blown into the house when the door was eventually opened. The result: popcorn ended up being too heavy, tape not strong enough, popcorn began to spill out sides and bottom…creating an un-vacuum and popcorn only covered half the door. I don’t really want to talk about it anymore. Next day: we were too tired to go out and think of another prank, and then we found out Bro. Callister had hurt his back (later found out it had nothing to do with pranks). We decided to take a break. I have been hearing rumors lately of retaliation and talk of alliances. Apparently the world really is against us which means I’m going to be needing to watch my back I little more carefully and I will also be needing bigger and better prank ideas…so if you’ve got ‘em, give ‘em!

I am catching up from a really long time ago. It looks like I haven’t actually blogged since Friday the 13th! It really ahs been a long time…so I guess I’ll catch you up on some of the fun and exciting things I’ve been doing lately, I hope it makes you laugh. First I’ll talk about Open Mic Night—not for long though, since it wasn’t that exciting,. Perhaps the most exciting thing about it is the fact that it is over. I was kind of stressed out getting ready for it. It was fun while it lasted, but now I’m just glad I don’t have to worry about it any more. The next couple nights after OMN, I had Lights on Broadway. That was fun. I hurt my knee on Saturday (which wasn’t fun) and it’s still bothering me. I don’t know what’s wrong…oh well. The funniest part of LOB was the awards we got afterward at the cast party! I got the “Shining Star” Award. The whole concept made me laugh…because everyone got an award so they were all meaningless, but it made me laugh at the time. The funniest award was Carson’s “Heartbreaker” award. It was mainly funny because all the little primary girls are in love with him. In fact, earlier that day, Chris Tilley and I were talking to Carson when our group was infiltrated by a bunch of ten year old girls. Chris and I had to leave because we were laughing so hard. One girl even asked Carson if she could take a picture of him! When Angela announced Carson’s award, Chris and I lost all control and started rolling on the floor because it was so funny. I wish I had a picture of the “I Love Carson Club” a.k.a. all the Irvine Stake Primary Girls.

It's been a while...

so i just realized today that i haven't even logged onto blogger all week! i'm surprised at myself. i was even more surprised when i went on lindsey's blog and she had four new posts! i've had intentions all week long of writing a post but just haven't found the time. i still need to write about last weekends adventure! it started on saturday night, about nine o'clock. i started my night by going to the gym (go me!). after an extensive workout (as if i've EVER had an extensive workout) carson and i gathered our dixie cupping supplies. after lauren joined us we went to pick up chris tilley (whose first name, i've decided, cannot be said without the last) and commenced our journey. we had one problem, we had no idea who to attack! eventually we decided on monique moore, who had just moved into a brand new house with a huge porch. we took our 1200 cups and 15 gallons of water to her front door step. this was a really risky endeavor because everyone in her house was awake, and the lights were on. there were also many windows with no coverings. the job took us over an hour to do, and we had to refill the water coolers mid-cupping. the reason it took so long, was because we were delayed by the laugh attacks. thanks again lauren, or should i say karen, for telling us about your ESPN...and don't worry, we don't all hate you. when we had finally finished, carson and chris went to go get their phones to take pictures of our beautiul masterpiece (i'll show them to you if you ask). meanwhile i was laying next to the cups and lauren and i were talking about none other than this very blog. all of the sudden, lauren falls to the ground. someone had spotted us. we run as fast as we can and dive into carson's car. i can't believe we got caught! even though it was past one in the morning we had to continue the tradition of going to donut star after dixie cupping. what a night. hopefully there will be many more of these to beware!

Haha. This isn't Alli. This is Lindsey. :) I just got a really high score on the IQ test she had me take.

My Friend Shadee

so i have this friend named shadee. she sits behind me in psychology and it is fun. if it weren't for her, i might actually pay attention in that class...which we all know would be terribly boring! i do however have to pay attention when she is surfing the net on her cell phone, which is how she is reading this blog right now, or getting people to sign her out of clas...cough cough eric. we are doing a an expirement in this third period class together and so today, we went and made copies of a test we are giving to see how smart people in advanced drama are--that'll be exciting! it was an eventful trip. shadde, eric, and i climbed into my car after fifth and drove to shadee's apartment complex where we could use the copy machine for free. it was kind of a disaster and took a long time. after calling the people working at the leasing office over twice, due to the running out of paper and a paper jam, we started making what turned out to be 230 copies (front and back). we waited a long time and passed the time by singing (loudly) in the laundry room which had really good acoustics. when the printer ran out of toner, we diecided to fix thr problem oursleves...which resulted in getting toner all over the place and the copier still wouldn't copy--we needed help again, and the toner-fairy came to the rescue! it was a pretty exciting day, you wish you were there. so to shadee, i have one more thing to say. i love you. i'm glad i exist.

tomorrow: national taco day

Best Week Ever

i decided to name my post "Best Week Ever" after that one show. however, i then realized that i have never actually seen the show and so now i don't know how to format this post. oh well...i'll do as i please. i haven't blogged in a few days and it's because i don't have a lot to talk about. this week hasn't been particularly exciting, which gets me thinking...what do they do on the tv show if that week isn't exciting? can every week be the best week ever? the answer is no. they need to find a new title.
i've been having a lot of speakers in my classes lately. we had steve young come to my poli sci class on thursday. even though he respresents the mormon democrats...i found myself disagreeing with almost everything he said. the next day we had some libertarian guy come--that was pretty interesting, he had some good ideas. the most fun i had though, was in psychology. we had a hypnotist come! she didn't hypnotize anybody, but she is going to send me a hynosis cd! how exciting!!!
Friday night was probably the climax of my week. me and lacey went to John's house where we had our own little dance party (we should do that more often) and then we went and saw You, Me and Dupree. i must admit, i was inspired. i'm now searching for my inner "-ness" and can't stop thinking about the seven different kinds of smoke. at about 1 am, we went and got donuts and then participated in deliquent behavior (which i cannot expand on, for fear that me and said party will reveal ourselves causing further trouble and blame than is necessary at this point in time).
Saturday, after watching four hours of general conference and mowing the lawn, i went shopping with my sisters. we went to Ann Taylor and Gap. it was fun until we started on our way home. we turned right onto BEAR out of the parking lot. we went over the 405 and as we were approaching Paularino Ave. i kindly said "will you please turn left here?" and Lindsey said, "um, no." who does that? she proceeded to get on the 73 south...when she realized she was going the wrong way. she got off the 73 and onto the 55...south, again, the wrong way. she turned around and got onto newport coast drive-finally we were going the right way! she turned left onto bristol. after all that, we made it to the 405, and she misses the on ramp! realiaze that we would have been home by now if it weren't for lindsey being incapable of driving. we made an illegal u-turn and got onto the 405 south. i was rolling my eyes in the back seat the whole time. oh lindsey, silly goose.
