mink creek

winter break has been amazing. i left byu on wednesday, boarded a shuttle and went on my way to slc airport. not to get on an airplane mind you, but to meet the grandparents who were picking up the uncle and fam. we piled into the car...there was barely any room (shouldn't have packed so much, oops). we went to temple square before heading up to mink creek. it was beautiful. just as we walked up, all the lights turned on. we had a little photo shoot and then were on our way.
the next few days is kind of a blur. i read a book, slept a lot, my phone broke, ate food, played in the snow, slept some more, ate more food...
eventually, the rest of the family cam up. we had christmas eve as usual. santa came and i told him what i wanted, we played chimes, bingo and of course, bloody smash. we piled up in the car to head back to danville. it was pretty crowded for the first couple hours when we had lindsey and all her luggage piled on our laps, but after that we were fine. it was a long drive (made even longer due to a detour which was a result of missing a certain freeway ramp) but we eventually made it home to play some guitar hero III.

Allison is

really excited that facebook finally decided stop putting 'is' after her name.

now we all have the freedom to write whatever we want for our status! except, now i'm finding it difficult to think of things to say without 'is'. but, that it ok too, because i can still type it in if i want to.
the only problem now, is that i'm finding my name to be a burden. i still have to talk about myself in the third person. i kind of just want to state what i think, where i am, or what i'm doing and not have to say 'allison'. another problem with removing the 'is' is that i'm afraid it's just going to turn into a place to put a quote or thought or something. this isn't myspace people! this is still your status! if i want to know what you think, or what someone else thinks, i'll read your information. but when i read your status, i want to see what your status is.

hp support

i had to call hp support tonight...i've been having a lot of issues with my webcam and i was sick of not being able to video chat with ben ross! so i decided to do something about it. it was a pretty funny experience. and supposedly, my webcam is totally fixed! start a video chat with me and you can see for yourself.
the guy who helped me was awesome. he asked me what time it was where i was and i told him 11:40 p.m. i asked him what time it was where he was and he told me 12:40 p.m. (in india) we had to wait for something to download and became really good friends in the meantime. he asked me about school and what i was doing for christmas. i told him i was going to my grandparent's house and he started talking about how good grandparents are and he can never say much when he is with his because they have so much knowledge to impart on him. he used the words, "they being expedient in life than us" to describe his grandparents. i wrote the quote down because it was such a good one.
i can gladly say that hp support guy helped me out. another case closed.

temple square

on saturday, my freshman academy decided to take a trip to temple square! fun, right? the only problem was that it was totally snowing...and a lot too. me and helen had to trudge through the snow all the way to the bean museum where we were meeting. by the time we got there, i was a mess. i was sweating because of all the layers and my toes were about to fall off because of frost-bite. and we almost died by getting run over by a snowplow on the sidewalk too. we waited at the museum while the drivers decided if we actually wanted to go or not. finally we started to pile into the vans.
we were ready for salt lake! we get in the van and take off. it's a good thing i brought a newspaper so i could work on sudoku and crossword puzzles while we drove because it took us fifty minutes to get to the walmart on university pkwy. it was snowing so hard and there was so mush traffic. once we reached the walmart parking lot, we brushed the snow off the car and turned around. looks like we weren't going to make it to temple square after all :(
we got about 100 feet and the van we were following pulled over to help a truck (very similar to chad's old blue R.I.P) because it was stuck. some people got out to help push (i stayed inside, it was snowing!) the truck pulled away and the other van pulled away. once everyone got back in the van, we started for home, the only problem, we weren't moving. immediately, we all got out and were ready to push. this day had been long enough already. now may be a good time to mention that our van was full of girls. there were ten girls and only two boys. hurray. so we start pushing, and pushing, and pushing. the wheels are spinning mud all over my legs (not helping with staying warm).
i'm such a good pusher! of course we were taking pictures! it was for the sake of the blog! and then it starts to get cold...

anyway, we are running the van up the hill and it takes off! without most of us! we are running (and i mean running) after it. we run about a mile uphill until the van finally decides to stop and let us in. i was so tired. couldn't even function. took me about a day to recover. it's pretty funny now though! me and helen took a bunch of after pictures but they are all too embarrassing to post on the internet.

scrabulous and pacman

my two facebook games.
i was never good at scrabble, but now that it's on a computer, i'm suddenly quite competent. so invite me to play a game with you! it'll be fun!
i also play pacman. i'm not very good though. especially compared to jenny and chelsea...but i'm working at it.

Jacuzzi at Super 8 Motel

My new favorite thing to do in Provo is to go hot tubbing! Me and Brittney discovered that the Super 8 Motel across Canyon has a pool and Jacuzzi! It’s not the best, but it works for me! We walked over in the freezing cold (almost literally) and waited outside the building for someone to let us in; and we spent all night sitting in the Jacuzzi. Dalton joined us later. It is basically the best thing ever. I’m going to start finding other hotels/motels with better Jacuzzi facilities. This one was just a bit small for my liking, but I guess I can’t really be picky. But if ever you’re bored in P-town, just give me a call and we’ll find a Jacuzzi!

long boarding

Last night I went long boarding with Brittney, TC, and Andrew. I’m not very good, but I’m getting better! We were at Helaman Halls and these random guys starting talking to us. They were really funny. My favorite one was Big G. Yes, that is how he introduced himself. His friends were Aaron, and some other kid who gave us a different name every time we asked. They were really funny. They called Andrew the Alpha Male of the group, which he really liked. We talked to them for probably twenty minutes until we were sick of doing nothing in the freezing cold. I am sad that I’ll probably never see Big G, Aaron, and Sean/Scott/… again. Ok, not that sad, but they entertained me.

Giving thanks

Thanksgiving was awesome! I flew to Danville, CA for my break and it was really fun. I hit up In-n-out, union square, the golden gate bridge, bloody smash, a four mile hike, shopping, some turkey, guitar hero, and the target with the really cool escalator the takes your cart downstairs for you. It was so nice to have a break from school. And I forgot how funny my family can be. I brought a half filled suit case home and brought back way more (I would tell you exactly how much but that might be embarrassing).

national carbonated beverage with caffeine day

in honor of a national holiday we had about a week ago, i thought i would dedicate this blog to my new favorite hot dog stand. J-DAWGS. this place is amazing. why does this have anything to do with today? let me tell you. this is the closest place to BYU campus you can go to get caffeine. and i am a frequent consumer. J-Dawgs is located just south of campus. it is a tiny white and red shack and they have the best hot dogs i've ever tasted.
what do i get when i go there? i get a polish dog, with special sauce and a pickle. don't forget the wonderfully delicious diet pepsi! best lunch/dinner ever!
if you come visit me in provo, there is no doubt, i will help you discover the beautiful creation that is a j-dawg.

the waffle

My favorite thing to make myself at the cannon center is a waffle. Jenny came up with the idea, but Brittney and I have carried on the tradition. This isn’t just any waffle though. A lot of time and preparation goes into making this wonderful waffle. I only eat this waffle if I really feel like giving myself a treat. It can only be eaten as a dessert. First, you make a waffle. Do not use whole wheat batter. It does not taste good. Next, sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Let sit until chips melt. Spread peanut butter (chunky is best) over chocolate chips. Pour on maple syrup. Place vanilla ice cream over entire creation. Many variations can be done to make the waffle your own, but after trying out various toppings, I have decided that the plain waffle is best for me.

saturday is a special day...

this morning i woke up so early...for a saturday. me and some other girls on my floor went and collected cans for the food drive we're having at BYU. we went door to door and asked for cans. i kinda felt like a missionary...especially when we shafted by a little girl. she answered the door and we asked for her parents and so she went back inside the house and we could hear her mom doing dishes and she came back and said nobody was home. it was great. my favorite was this cute old man though. he even gave me and brittney candy! all together, me and brittney collected 146 cans. yay!
after this adventure, we visited chris at work, and now i'm blogging. trying to put off writing a paper for as long as possible. it is on fifth paper on euthanasia this semester. sounds like great fun, huh? well, i hope you all have fun on your day off. i'll be in the library, trying to write eight more pages on a subject i really don't know anything about.

tomorrow: sunday

dan in real life

i loved this movie. i saw it last night with carson, allie, and hannah. it was amazing. everything from the soundtrack to the actors to the story...this was my kind of movie. i laughed, i cried. everyone should go see it. and i'm definitely going to be quoting this movie, so get ready!

i was a little worried at the beginning when the man who plays michael scott on the office was supposed to be playing the role of a single father of three girls. but he totally pulled it off. i was also a little worried when i saw dane cook walk into the scene. i was preparing for comedy hour, but was pleasantly surprised when he took the role seriously. i loved that norbert leo butz was in this movie. i saw him in dirty rotten scoundrels at the OCPAC. he even sung a little (very little) in the movie...but at least he sang! it was a pretty good story, except i did feel like it was a rip off of the family stone...basically the same story...but still a good movie.

go and see it.

tomorrow: homemade bread day

a democrat is coming!

yesterday in my poli sci class, a democrat came and spoke. i thought it was really funny because on monday, my teacher announced that none of us would want to miss class because a democrat was coming (this is a rare occurrence at BYU). he didn't tell us who, or why...the fact that he was a democrat was apparently far more intriguing than anything that this man has accomplished in his life.
it took me until about half way through the class to figure out who this guy even was. everyone kept referring to him as "the democrat". he ended up being quite interesting. i laughed out loud a few times. he started getting in fights with some of the students in my class. he was all up in this one kid's face...and wasn't giving democrats a very good name.
but he did have some very good things to say. he asked everybody who cared about our environment to raise their hands. there were probably twenty hands in the air...out of 200. it was really sad. when he asked why, the kid next to me mumbled "because there are enough nuts doing it already..." i wanted to punch him in the face, but refrained.

tomorrow: button day, national moms and dads day

...nunchuck skills...

we have this called ward wrap up every sunday night here at byu. at ward wrap up we have a spotlight, a talent and a spiritual thought. last night's talent was basically amazing. this kid (a black belt in karate) gets up to show us his skills. he did a few tricks with some aggressive sound effects--that was my favorite part. then, he pulled out the nunchucks. and that's my story.

the craziest thing happened to me on friday. i was walking to my student development class and all of the sudden, i realized the guy in front of me was mike phelps, my seminary teacher from junior year! i asked him what the heck he was doing at BYU and he told me he was teaching this class. and i was like, "I'm in this class!" it was pretty crazy.
my student development class is a business lecture series. we have a different speaker each week telling us about the different aspects of business we could go into after graduating from the business school. mike phelps was here to talk about being a financial advisor.
he started the class by giving us a little background about himself, telling everyone where he was from. after he said california, some kid called out (obviously from california too), and then everyone from california started calling out what city they are from. i knew what this was leading too and held my breath. mike phelps said, "we have some true irvinites with us today" (nick jordan was also there) and then he told the class that he was my semianry teacher and what a great person i am--which i'm sure everyone already knows ;) it was the craziest thing ever!

today: veteran's day

does this mean helen's a nerd?

i was in the math building with helen the other day. we were talking and then we decided we should probably go work on our math homework. i walked to the trashcan and then continued on to the math lab. helen, did not realize this however and went straight to the math lab. then, she started to talk to me. the only problem, was that i was twenty feet behind her. i'm sure the girl walking next to her thought she was a total crazy! i love you helen! and next time, i'll let you know when i walk to the trash can...

does this mean i'm a nerd?

i saw this hanging in the math lab the other day and i laughed...a lot...probably too much...

the office

so the office is over. it's been a good run, hasn't it? is started my office experience with the british season one. oh how funny it was...i had to get the american version too! the only way i got through some weeks was hoping that next thursday, jim and pam would finally end up together. my favorite office watching experiences were always after filling my stomach with wings and french fries from wingstop. i guess since i can't have wingstop anymore, the office must leave my life too.
i don't mean to trivialize the situation, but part of me is glad that it's over. let's face it, this season just hasn't been as good as the previous ones. i've been a fan from the beginning and continue to watch...but i have been a little disappointed. i don't know...maybe i'm wrong. maybe it's just different because i don't watch it with the same people anymore? or maybe it's because there's no more guessing with jim and pam? or maybe it's not as good because everyone and their mother is a crazy fan? we'll see what life is like post-office...

tomorrow: national bittersweet chocolate with almonds day

haunted forest and halloween

this week has been crazy...i haven't really had a chance to do a lot of blogging, but here i am to update you on allison fife's life. i went to a haunted forest the other was so scary! it was utah's best attempt at knott's scary farm. they did an ok job. that is to say, they scared me! i didn't really do anything for halloween...went to a couple dance parties the weekend before though. a bunch of girls on my floor dressed as "women in black." this was basically a costume cop-out. it was a play off of men in black...but cooler. we got to wear normal clothes and sunglasses so we didn't look scary and we were comfortable. when people asked what i was dressed as, i kept giving them different answers. these included thief in the night, paul mitchell student, shadow, black licorice, spy...or basically anything else that is black. on halloween i just watched a movie and hung out. couldn't do anything too crazy because i had a midterm the next morning at 8:00. could somebody talk to my teacher about how that isn't allowed?

a sip is worth a thousand words.

peter fuller is basically a genius. he taught me, brittney and jenny how to drink a soda and analyze someone else doing the same. there are three ways.
1. fill cup, drink soda. this is the masculine way to down a drink. there is no straw involved. this is how real men drink.
2. fill cup, put straw in, drink soda. this is a feminine way to drink. any man who drinks this way is either gay or has the potential to be. with the straw just floating freely in the liquid, it allows the girl to stir, lift, and sip. it gives the person sipping more freedom to use their hands in the drinking process. this can be used as a flirting device, thus making it a feminine action.
3. fill cup, put lid on, put straw in, drink soda. this one can go either way. this is the method men use if they want use a straw while still appearing masculine. it's all about the stability of the straw. girls can also use this method if not counting on using their straw to flirt. so if you're not sure, use this method.
i hope we all think about how we are using our straws in the future. and watch out because i'll be analyzing your every sip.

i bought a cd yesterday! "Debussy for daydreaming" music to caress your innermost thoughts. how exciting does that sound? its actually a really good classical cd. i listened to it yesterday while taking a grammar test online and i'm pretty sure i scored higher than i would have if i was not listening to it. classical music makes you smarter...right? plus, i love daydreaming. and the fact that the music is supposed to caress my innermost thoughts makes me excited. is that weird?

mid terms

this college thing is crazy. i feel like every week is midterm week! it's weird too...i'm actually studying for these tests!
one thing that's really different about college vs. high school is that i'm learning how to study. my new favorite place on campus is the library (it used to be the math lab). ok, so maybe these aren't my favorites...but they are the ones i frequent the most. what a geek, huh! oh well...what's a girl to do?

bored in poli sci

i'm sitting in poli sci right now and realized i haven't blogged in a really long time. i'm extremely bored and don't want to study for a test i have to take later today. since my poli sci class is pass/fail i can afford to blog during this class.

what has been happening lately you ask? let's see...

lindsey came up for conference weekend. that was really fun. we ate breakfast in salt lake one morning at a really cute restaurant and then went to Hatch Family Chocolates! it's run by little people which basically makes it awesome. we had a few photo shoots and just had fun.

i've been having midterms this last week and i'm glad those are coming to an end. (my last one is on monday!)

my tap teacher asked me to be her TA! that was really exciting. but i found out today that i don't get class credit or it's not that exciting anymore.

my teacher is talking about how red pens are being banned in schools because it is unfriendly. purple is the new color to use. my teacher has really funny hair...reminds me of the sixties in utah--imagine that!

i'm learning how to drive a stick shift on saturday! scary!

it hailed today in provo. but don't worry, i was safe inside.

can't think of anything else to write right now...but i feel much better about blogging. i think i'll start doing it again! so prepare yourself internet world! allison fife is back!

spectacular! spectacular!

tonight me and a bunch of girls from my floor went to the homecoming spectacular. it was so much fun! carson and alyssa were great in the young ambassador much fun to watch! carson was on stilts and alyssa makes a great monkey! the ballroom dancers were amazing. the mo-tab sang a bunch of fun songs too. my favorites were "bring him home" from les mis, and battle hymn of the republic. entertainers sang that same version of the battle hymn last year so that was really cool to hear in person. during intermission i randomly looked to my right and guess who was sitting right next to my group! none other than the kassie fausett! random! and kayla was in the show too! double random. really cool though.

true blue

a couple days ago, byu put on "true blue football" for homecoming week. sadly, i didn't participate, maybe next year though. its where everybody rolls around in this blue foam, turns blue, and stays that way for days. seriously...people are still blue. i thought i would take this opportunity to tell everyone about the funniest girl ever! natalie thomas. it took me a while to figure out who she reminded me of until she herself suggested a name; dori, from finding nemo. that was it! she is just like dori and it is hilarious! i took a picture of her after the game. see the resemblance?

natalie "dori" thomas and kittye bowen after playing "true blue"

btw: congrats natalie for making divine comedy!

a spritz a day can't keep the tap teacher away

(title by michelle and brittney, the chipman chicks)

i had tap today, my favorite class! but it was so strange today! i've really only had one other tap teacher in my life, monie adamson. she was the basically the best dance teacher i ever had. and the most memorable thing about her was her scent. i've never met anyone else in the world that wore the same perfume as her...until today. colleen west, my new tap teacher, was wearing it today. i was seriously so confused! it was a total flashback to all the previous tap classes i've had in my life. how ironic is that? the only two people to wear this perfume (to my knowledge) are both tappers and both my teachers...chew on that one.

mr. cool

we have cleaning checks tomorrow in the dorms. i looked at the list of things to do earlier, and guess what i have to do! defrost my that's what i'm doing, and it's pretty exciting. i can't stop thinking about monk now though. maybe you don't know what i'm talking about, and that's probably a good thing. but, allow me to explain. if you are a monk watcher you already know that last season, monk went to a college reunion at cal berkeley. everybody called him "mr. cool" when they were at school and he thought it was because he really was cool. at the reunion, his assistant finds out that nobody really liked him at all and the only reason he wasn't a complete outcast was because of trudy (deceased wife). the real reason he was called mr. cool was because he spent every weekend defrosting the refrigerator. so i guess this means you can call me mr. cool!

old ladies

so the other day i decided to eat lunch outside, it was a nice day. i picked a bench that i thought would be safe so i could read a little before my political science class. i was wrong...the bench wasn't safe at all. there was an old lady sitting on the opposite end reading a french poetry book. i guess she just thought it would be fun to get one from the library. she said it was the same book she read when she was at BYU in a beginning french class in the 1940s and she just wanted to see if she could still understand it all. i ended up talking to this woman for an entire hour. she would just not let me go! or eat for that matter...we talked about everything. and i mean everything. her grandsons, les miserables, euthanasia, general authorities, her dying friends, composers, the opera...and the list goes on. she kept using words like "grand" and "beastly." i was quite entertained. she told me about a professor she once had that asked her to name 10 great artists and she couldn't. "ask me now" she said. that inspired me to make my own list, but it was way too hard, i couldn't narrow it down to tell me, who are your favorite artists?

Friday, September 14, 2007

won't you take me to...funkytown!

on wednesday i went to 80's night at muse music! it was so much fun! hannah, some of her roommates, and i made a run to DI first to grab a few essentials and then began applying the blue eye shadow! we danced 'til we dropped and met a ton of cool people!

Pirates of Penzance

On Saturday, I went to Center Street Musical Theater. Hannah, one of her roommates, and three guys that live on her street all went! It was a breakfast theater which meant that i got to eat waffles which i was really excited about! It was a really small theater and so the actors were constantly out in the audience, before during and after the show. a bunch of the pirates kept flirting with me and hannah (the pirate king was way into hannah) was pretty funny. the waitress brought us a cup of ice and asked us to play a trick on them. so i asked to try on a priate's hat, filled it with ice and put it back on his head! i was pretty smooth about to, if i do say so myself. so watch out pirates!

it's raining! its pouring!

ok, so it wasn't pouring, but last week it did rain! the thunder kept waking me up at night. it was pretty cool though since i haven't seen much rain living in irvine my whole life. i guess that's all changing now! there was a ton of mud in the grassy area between all the dorms so some of us decided to play some mud football! we got all dressed in old clothes and then didn't even end up playing was basically just slip 'n' slide through the grass sans the yellow plastic slide. but we had lots of fun anyway!

we have problem...

and it is this: i accidentally switched my camera's memory to the internal memory instead of the memory card. i was able to take pictures but now i can't upload them because i don't have the usb cable that fits into my camera anymore. this is really sad because i had a lot of things to post on my blog but now you're all just going to have to wait until i can find a super tiny usb plug.

Sunday, September 2, 2007


i'm in utah! i've been having a lot of fun and meeting a ton of people. i'm getting excited about being in the pre-business program. that's a good thing, especially since i had no idea what i was getting into before the other day. yesterday there was a football game! i didn't go though...when i bought my all sports pass the arizona game was sold out...sad. instead, while everyone was at the game, me and lindsey muir took the bus to the mall! crazy! we shopped a little and then saw the nanny diaries. it was pretty fun. the best part was waiting for the bus afterwards. it came almost a half hour late and we were freaking out because it was the last one of the day and we thought we had missed it or something! but no worries, it did come eventually and everything was alright. later that night there was a dance at the wsc. it was basically awesome.

My New Friend

People keep asking me if I've made any friends here in Nor Cal. So, I finally made one the other night and decided to blog about him! My new friend's name is Dashiell. My family went to dinner at the Minors' house on Thursday and this is where Dashiell and I met. When we arrived, my sister found Natalie who is her age. They hit it off and jumped in the swimming pool fully clothed (which seems to be a habit of hers)...I stood around a little bit wondering what a should do. Join Melissa and Natalie? No. Listen to my parents talk to Julia and Tom? No. Just then, nine year old Dashiell walks up and invites me to play Dance Dance Revolution. He was the cutest boy! After we got tired of DDR, we moved on to WII and then some Mario game. We played for four and a half hours. Thanks Dashiell!

August to August

For those of you who know me really well, you know I never go anywhere without my planner. In fact, I think I've blogged about it before. Well, at the beginning of August my orange planner ended. I didn't quite know what to do with myself. My mom got me a random planner from a drug store and I tried it out, but it just wasn't cutting it. Today while I was at The Container Store, I saw the infamous August to August calendar and bought it! All is right with the universe. Now, I can be organized again.

oh what a night!

last night was my parents' anniversary, and to celebrate, we all went to jersey boys in san fransisco! it was as really cute show, maybe a little long though...haha. there was this crazy lady sitting next to me which made the show all the more exciting. she sang along to every song and insisted on clapping too. the only problem with this was that she couldn't keep a beat and somehow managed to hit me with her elbows a bunch since we were sharing an armrest. but, overall i liked the show. the guy playing frankie valli was such a good singer!

happy anniversary mom and dad!

t-shirt quilt

whenever one of my cousins graduates high school, my grandma takes their t-shirts from high school and makes a quilt. i guess she forgot about the tradition when i graduated because she made me a different quilt. its really cute! in fact, it's on my bed right now. but, i had saved all these t-shirts. so at the beginning of the summer, i started making my own quilt and i finally made the last stitch today! here's the finished product!

Berkeley Part II we decided to play that game again today. bad idea. i brought the rest of the couch over to his apartment this morning and we carried up the three flights of stairs. that was the easy part. and let me tell you, it was not a light couch. once we got it in the hallway of the third floor, we realized just how difficult this was going to be (it was even too wide for the hallway). after flipping it around a few times, we noticed that it just would not fit through the door. fortunately there was a room across the hall. we decided that if we could use that door way and the room inside then we would be able maneuver the couch inside the correct room. Taylor knocked on the door and a few minutes later, a tall boy with messy hair opened the door. we had woken him up. we told him the situation and he opened his door and gave us the go ahead. first of all, it was a miracle that we were able to put the end of the couch through his door and when we eventually shoved the other side through Taylor's we were overjoyed. just one problem. the couch wouldn't budge another inch, it wouldn't go in or out...poor christian (friendly neighbor).

after an hour, we decided the only way to fix the problem would be to saw the corner off the couch and slide it through the doors. i found myself driving back to Danville to find a saw. when i came back an hour later, Taylor started to saw. keep in mind that this was a well-made couch. he had to saw through fabric, padding, another kind of padding, high quality wood, occasionally a few staples and a metal plate. this was all happening while i single handedly held the couch up at manageable level. this went on for hours...

here's a close-up...
and look! you can't even tell! just don't sit in the corner...


Today i spent a little time at UC Berkeley. I went to help my brother move a few things into his new room! When we got there, we played a little game called "try to fit as much furniture into one room as possible." it was quite fun, but afterwards i decided i could never be a designer...after all, it's just not that much fun. Taylor's building/room/neighborhood is really ghetto. haha, but i guess he doesn't mind because he's a boy...

we ate dinner at naan 'n' curry. we had naan and curry.

color me yours

Last night hannah, kailee and I went to color me mine. It was really fun! Hannah and kailee each made mugs and I made a plate thing. They were all really cute! It was funny because each of our pieces totally reflect our personalities! i'll post the pics as soon as i get a camera hook up.

thanks yuki!

I went to wingstop for what I thought would be the last time in a long time. Yuki was there and we chatted for a bit and after ordering the staple “Two can dine for 11.99” yuki only charged us $1.82! how amazing is that?!?!?! I guess it pays to frequent wingstop…and don’t worry, we def gave yuki a tip.

the wings tasted good. and so did the fries. and so did the diet coke!

i admit, i went again the next day and the wings were even better! what am i going to do without you wingstop?

Hair to Dye for!

I dyed my hair everyone! it's black! kind of exciting isn't it? I also have a few chunks of a honey-like color around my face to soften the look...haha, i guess.

why you ask? let me tell you! carlos ramirez, aka hair genius, needed models for a photo shoot he was involved in. he asked me if i would do it, and i said yes! i drove down to irvine on friday, colored my hair on saturday (it was even free!) and shot the photos on sunday.

the photoshoot was quite a funny experience. i tried on a few outfits, got my make-up done (it was quite the sight to see) and had my hair straightened. i didn't look like myself at all! i can't wait until i get the pictures. i shot a couple of "looks," repeated the whole process and then i was done!

if your ever looking at a stylebook while waiting to get your hair done and happen to see me, don't be surprised...of course who is to say you'll even recognize me?

My New Hot Tub

In moving, my family acquired a hot tub left by previous owner of 282 Remington Loop. This was pretty cool seeing as I had never had a jacuzzi in my backyard before and am no longer within walking distance to a public one. My sister Melissa was especially excited about this new edition. When the movers came on Monday to bring everything from storage and into the house, Melissa decided to go for a swim. Since Melissa's room had not been unpacked at all and she didn't have a swimsuit with her, naturally, she felt the need to take this swim fully clothed. When she decided she was wet enough, she climbed out and began to fold the cover back over the water. She heard a plop but didn't think anything of it. She then realized she didn't have her phone and could better decipher what made the plopping sound. After recovering her phone, we decided it luckily didn't have any damage and was okay...just a little wet...

There are a lot of cool things about this hot tub. For instance, the other day when I was at the grocery store, I found these really cool rubber duckies to put in the water. When their tummies get wet, they light up! They are really cute, but like to get stuck in the filters a lot.

Another neat thing is when you are relaxing the water you can see all the wildlife in my backyard. Like today, there was a baby deer and a mommy deer. They were pretty cute.

Sometimes if you are really lucky, someone will even come and swim with you! Earlier, my mom was showing my brother the hot tub, and he noticed a little frog. I had to go and fish it out since the water was a little to warm for the little guy to handle. It was actually quite sad and a little bit gross. It kinda makes me want to empty the spa and re-chlorinate it...we'll see if any of Kermit's friends want to swim with us again.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

(If you wanted to read the book and haven’t yet, I wouldn’t read this blog…it may give away a few things. and don't say I didn't warn you!)

I finished the final installment of the Harry Potter series! It was pretty good. I do have a few complaints however. First of all, why has it taken so long for the last book to come out? I mean…come on! I read the first book in fifth grade and I have to wait until after I’ve graduated from high school for the last one? Another complaint: I really didn’t like the epilogue. It was too nice of an ending. Too happy, too perfect. I would have liked it to end when it ended, let me imagine what happens to Harry, I don’t need to be told that everything works out perfectly for everyone in the end. And I really wish I hadn't known what Harry names his children. who wants to be named Albus Severus? and it was way too confusing to have the other children named after his parents...I had to keep going back and reading things over to make sure I knew who was being talked about.

About the ending; personally, I think I would have liked it if Harry had died. Make him the tragic hero he deserves to be! Oh well…I guess I a lot of people would have been upset by that, even though we were all expecting it (including Harry himself). I read an article in Newsweek yesterday comparing Harry to Jesus Christ, being resurrected and all. the chapter after Harry dies is called "King's Cross" after all. but what is all that supposed to mean? It's a little too deep for me I guess...

It sounds like all I have are complaints, but I really did like the book. And I definitely recommend it to anyone who was thinking about reading it and just haven’t gotten around to it. it was nice to finally have Voldermort defeated for the last time, now the wizarding world can rest easy.

P.S. For all you true HP fans, I have I question. There was one part of the story I didn’t quite understand. When Harry is talking to Voldermort about the elder wand he says that Draco is the true master of the wand until he is defeated by Harry. How is this so? Did Draco defeat Dumbledore and I just don’t remember? Help me please!

danville, ca

for those of you who have never been to northern california, i thought i would give you a little taste of my new living arrangements. my new house is in danville which is about 15 minutes from walnut creek and about 45 minutes from san fransisco (going the other direction). its been really hot here...but i heard that the heat is unusual, so lets hope i heard right! there are a lot of hills and trees. i have a jacuzzi in my backyard now which i am really excited about and a great view out the front window. i spent my first few days here doing some heaving duty shopping so when you all come to visit me, i'll know exactly where to take you! it's pretty much the same here as in irvine except for a few things like BART. bay area rapid transit. i don't even have to drive anywhere! it's great! i don't really know what else to say...but feel free to ask questions if you've got any!

last days in irvine

nor cal! that's where i live now, can you believe it? i moved out of my house last thursday night and into the classy residents inn in irvine. nothing too exciting happened while i was there. that saturday night ben ross picked me up and took me to hogues to see cory benjamin, apocalipstick, and wingman. i had a lot of fun. i recognized the guitar player in apocalipstick and it turned out that it was a girl named jenna that i used to take ballet class with! what a small world! we drove up to walnut creek on sunday and i've just been chillin' there ever since. i sleep on a pull-out bed in the living room of a one room apartment. it is awfully small, but that's ok, i just stay in bed all day anyway! i've watched a lot of tv and movies and read a lot too! i bought a laptop which is what is allowing me to type about my uneventful week and that has also kept me very busy (playing various games such as insanaquarium, mahjong, and zuma).

Here's What I've Been Up To

it has been a long time since i blogged! i guess its because i've been so's what i've been up to:

graduation! it's true, i graduated. i could have done without the long boring ceremony but it was worth it for ruth's chris afterward! i've been waiting to go there since i was in middle school and finally got to for graduation. best. food. ever.

here we are!

Mt. Whitney! The weekend after graduation, my dad and i climbed mt. whitney. this was no easy task, but it was so amazing! mt. whitney is the tallest mountain in the continuous united states at 14497 feet. this was probably the hardest thing i've ever done in my life...i was sore for a week afterward! we woke up early on friday and drove the lone pine, ate lunch at carl's jr, and drove the the start of the trail. after putting on my pack, i realized 17 pounds was going to be a tough burden to carry (i won't even tell you what my dad's weighed...). we hiked 3.5 miles to camp and i thought i was going to die! woke up early the next morning, purified our water and went up to the top, pole pole. eating lunch at the summit was so beautiful, i was on top of the world! after hiking back down to camp, we decided to go all the way that night. we got the bottom just in time for the light to disappear from the sky and were on our way to eat some pizza! i don't know if i'll ever attempt this climb again, but it was definitely worth it the first time! that mountain kicked my butt.

the journey begins

this is what we slept in...


we made it!

skydiving! the next week, i went skydiving! it was amazing! i was so scared in that airplane getting ready to jump out. i'd definitely have to say the worst part was when i was have way out of the airplane, not allowed to hold onto anything and the only reason i hadn't fallen already was because i was attached to a complete stranger...! after the jump though, it was the coolest free fall ever! and then when i, well he, pulled the chute, it was so peaceful. we stopped at wingstop after of course.

the gang.

this is me, skydiving.

things to think about.

have you ever really seen yourself? i mean, yeah, i guess i see myself all the time, but its usually in a mirror, or a picture, or an upside down version of me seen by simply looking down...but my face, that i have never really seen. again, I've seen pictures and a reflection of my face in mirrors...but its not the same.

I hope I'm never "between a rock and a hard place." it sounds like a really uncomfortable and possibly painful place to be. my econ teacher seems to say that phrase almost everyday. i didn't really notice it until a few weeks ago when she said it about seven times in three minutes. at that point i had stopped thinking about aggregate demand and Keynesian theory and started focusing on all the weird things she says. "skulking around" is another one--how that came up in econ, I'll never know.

cop a squat. i always thought it was pop a squat...not sure why, but it makes more sense to me. what exactly does "cop" mean? the closest definition on was to steal. but are you stealing the squat? is a squat something that can be taken away? please, if you can, shed some light on the matter for me.

really is an adverb. i was thinking about the game, in the manner of the adverb, and was trying to think of really hard adverbs--to make the game a little more exciting. i searched my brain for all words ending in -ly and came up with really. after looking it up in my spanish-english translater, it was confirmed. really is an adverb. this gave new depth to the word for me. its not necessarily just a degree of something anymore. it means to do something real-ly. this is amazing to me...sorry if you don't share the same enthusiasm.

love is worth forgiving for--this was my favorite line in Jekyll & Hyde. thought this would be a good place for it.

um...that's it i guess...what have you been thinking about?

ap tests are over!

ap tests are a funny thing. this year i took the government test and the macroeconomics test. they were not so fun. the gov test took three and a half hours...and my chair had one short leg, which means i was wobbling back and forth for three and a half hours! annoying much? but that was last week. today, i took my econ test. it was only three hours (still long). that was a funny test. it took us like 45 minutes before the test to fill out our name, which was annoying. i was a little jealous of james bonner when he showed up 25 minutes late, because i realized that i could have shown up 25 minutes late and been better off. anyway, as i was taking the test, i was a little worried about how many question i was skipping. i worried until i looked to my left and saw Nish sleeping. i decided that if Nish was sending in a blank test, the few questions i skipped wouldn't affect my score too bad. (Nish later woke up and proceeded to fill in all the answers...without looking at the questions) i finished that section of the test and pulled out Siddartha to read. I found myself wishing that i could have pulled the Worldly Philosophers out of purse for a quick refresher on Keynesian Theory, but alas, i am not that much of, i do not carry the Worldly Philosophers around with me.
Section 2 began later. i broke the seal to the essay writing portion and started reading the prompts. i'm a little mad at the people who made up the test, because they used seven pages when they could have used two...paper wasters! anyway, i'm pretty sure i was not prepared for prompt 1, and as a result, was forced to skip it. prompt 2 was a little better, but i probably would have done better if i had a photographic memory and had memorized my text book. prompt 3 i could answer! it was a good question, that we had talked about in class extensively (at the time i thought a little too extensively since it wasn't even a difficult subject). i was finished with my test a little early and started looking around the classroom. here are some things i noticed: there was a really annoying cricket, edward hopper is one of my favorite artists, you do not need five pencils to take a scan tron will suffice, you shouldn't wear a Davy Crockett hat while taking a scan tron test...people will think you're strange.

Jekyll & Hyde

so, the musical is over, which means i have a life again! it means i don't have to be at rehearsal every day at three o'clcok (which cuts right into my nap time)! but, somehow ms. b has found reasons for me to be at school every day at three does that work? for those of you that weren't able to catch the show, i played a poor woman, a rich woman, a prostitute, and a homeless woman. that's really all i have to say about that.
the cast! (i'm between garrett and holland...dressed as a prostitute)

ms. tang 2

so, eric asked ms. tang to prom via secret spongebob decoder pen. it was basically the best idea ever! plus, i was involved...which always makes things better!

she said no...

Monday, April 30, 2007

ms. tang

eric and i are in tutorial and would like to dedicate this post to our favorite english teacher! in honor of her, we wrote a few haikus. here it goes!

my chinese teacher
always wear cute sho-es
will be my prom date.

hair as black as coal
where is the decoder pen?
why not check your purse?

you make english fun
stop staring at my pictures
tell your "husband" hi!

what is your last name?
is it tang or is it ku?
you cannot have both.

dirty mouth?

i thought i would devote an entire post to a dear and long-time, orbit sugarfree gum. reasons why i love orbit: they are always coming out with new flavors (so i never get bored), is softer than trident, has long lasting flavor, each and every package reminds us to throw away our trash (diagram included), tells you where to open package (this is very important), it's fabulous and it's made in canada. ok, the last one was a stretch...but you get the picture.

out of orbits eleven flavors, my favorites are spearmint and mint mojito (exotic new flavor). so tell me, how do you do the sugarfree gum?

tomorrow: Walpurgisnacht

best night ever!

(spin off of best week ever)

so, tonight started off with wingstop (as the best ones usually do). lacey, emily and i ordered 25 wings! chad's 10...and almost ate them all! what can i say? they were good. (i also drank an entire diet pepsi and it's refill--you may need this information later on) we left wingstop to meet lindsey and bruce at alton square. why? because they're cool. after parking in front of golden spoon and listening to a bit of timbaland, yeah baby! we departed for mason park where we were to meet annum and deannie. turns out mason park was closed or something so we went to uni parking lot instead. we danced and spun in circles and hid in trunks (this is where all that caffeine comes in) until at 11:25 we had the brilliant idea to go toilet papering! we immediately left for cvs (which makes me happy). when emily and i arrived we ran out of the car, into cvs and straight to the toilet paper aisle. well, maybe not wasn't that easy to find. we grabbed the 12 roll pack and headed for the register. by that time deannie and annum had finally arrived and we handed the man all the $1 we could muster, told him to keep the change and ran out of there before he had even opened the register. we quickly drove to c******* c****'s house (the time was 12:44) and put our toilet papering knowledge to the test. if you ask me, we did a pretty good job for only having 6 minutes! for you was only 6 minutes until none other but c******* c****'s dad appears from the backyard. not even a second later four girls were running down the street as fast as they're legs would go (we left all the toilet paper, if you were wondering...oops...)! it was so amazing. i don't even remember the last time i went toilet papering. all i have to say, is that i'm going to start doing it a little more watch out, and don't make me mad! haha...jk. but seriously...

tomorrow: nothing special.

Wednesday, April 25, 2007


ok, so tonight jon, jd, carson, johnny and i decided to visit every jacuzzi slash pool in woodbridge before school gets out! it is going to require much dedication...i just hope i don't get too water logged before we're through. there are 22 pool facilities in woodbridge (all my information is from if you need a source). ashwood, blue lake, briarglen, clearbrook, creekside, fallbrook, fallingstar, firwood, lemongrass, meadowpark, shorebird, smokestone, springacre, springvale, stonecreek, timer run, wildwood, windjammer, wintermist, woodflower, woodpine, and woodspring. i downloaded a "facilities map" in order to hit all these locations in an organized manner. it will be interesting...i didn't even know some of these pools existed!

pussy cat dolls

wow...i am really upset. for the past few weeks, every Tuesday night at nine o'clock i have devoted an hour of my time to watching the search for the next pussy cat doll. from the very first episode i picked my favorite...and my least favorite. the funny thing is, it was both of them that made it to the final two--Asia and Melissa R. i just want to say now, that i love Melissa R.! and i hate Asia. after spending many hours in front of my TV supporting this group and its show, i think the least they could have done would be to repay me by picking the obvious choice, but they can't even do that, can they? Asia wins? all i have to say is that i feel sorry for the other pussy cat dolls...nobody would ever want to be around this girl. in my outrage, i have decided to boycott any pussy cat doll related music (or any other thing having to do with the "new and improved," and i use that word loosely, pussy cat dolls) this shouldn't be too hard a sacrifice since I've never really been a fan or supported them before this TV show. ugh...Asia? really?

Tuesday, April 17, 2007

April showers bring May flowers?

ok...has anybody seen any showers? since april is not doing it's duty in that regard, i thought i would analyze the month a little further. after referring to infamous book of holidays, i have been informed that the month of april has many more purposes than the bringing forth of flowers in may.
April is:

-poetry month
-cancer control month
-keep america beautiful month
-listening awareness month (what is this?)
-national garden month (what about may flowers?)
-national food month (YUM!)
-stress awareness month
-national florida tomato month (?)
-thai heritage month (Sawatdee Khrab!)
-communinty services month

have a fun April!

tomorrow: National Cheeseball Day (that doesn't mean you can be a cheeseball...)

Sunday, April 15, 2007

spring break!'s over. what to do now? i've decided that spring break is basically a really bad idea. i don't know anybody who actually wants to go back to school and i'm pretty sure all the seniors have already given up. spring break doesn't refresh just gives us a better idea of what we're missing everyday we're at school. my spring break was springs...guitar hero...pool...sunburns...and no school!

tomorrow: national stress awareness day...fitting right? since we're going back to school and all...just remember not to stress too much! hakuna matata.

freaky friday

today is friday the 13th!

Tuesday, April 3, 2007

this is where i'm going next year!

Rise all loyal Cougars and hurl your challenge to the foe.
We will fight, day or night, rain or snow.
Loyal, strong, and true
Wear the white and blue.
While we sing, get set to spring.
Come on Cougars it's up to you. Oh!

Rise and shout, the Cougars are out
along the trail to fame and glory.
Rise and shout, our cheers will ring out
As you unfold your victr'y story.

On you go to vanquish the foe for Alma Mater's sons and daughters.
As we join in song, in praise of you, our faith is strong.
We'll raise our colors high in the blue
And cheer our Cougars of BYU.

cup noodles

so, as i was looking through all the cupboards in the kitchen for about the fourth time for something to eat today, melissa suggested i have a cup of noodles. this suggestion lead to a conversation about how my mom likes cup of noodles better than top ramen. she actually said "top ramens" which i pointed out was incorrect. she justified this by saying she was using the plural form like as in "cups of noodles." after that melissa pointed out that it isn't cup of noodles it's cup noodles. i almost didn't believe her. i had to go get one just to make sure. and what do you know? she was right! they are cup noodles, haha...kind of like bowl noodles, or is not a cup of noddles, it's a cup of cup noodles!
don't believe me?

back to the future

so i discovered something new! future blogging! apparently i have the option of picking a posting date for all the blogs i write! this is totally an amazing gift! i feel like i have so much power! just look at the date that this was hasn't even happened yet! it makes me think of the office episode where jim sends faxes to dwight from future dwight! some poisoned the coffee...

i miust admit, i have used this technique in the past to make it seem like i didn't write four blogs in one day...kind of like tonight...

i'm sorry if you are reading this in the future...

today: national tortilla chip day

Monday, February 19, 2007

talking trashcans...

so, i went to disneyland today. i was kidnapped (sorta) by hannah, chris and was fun though! we all got birthday pins (mine's in spanish!) which is always fun. as we were walking toward the pier, we passed this talking trash can! it was crazy! so me and chris stopped. the trash can proceeded to come up to us and starting asking questions. it was like, are you two on a date? which chris responded to by saying yes...lie. and then the trash can said, is it your first date? chris responded by saying yes again...lie. the trash can made a really embarrassing wooooooo! sound...haha, it was truly amazing. if you are reading this, and wish that you were there, just contact carson twitchell--i believe he captured some of it on his phone. talking trash cans...

tomorrow: national cherry pie (makes me think of the song cherry pie. i think i'll go play guitar hero now...)

i think that i should not have to blog if people don't leave comments. it makes me feel like i am just blogging to myself, which would be fine if i didn't keep hearing complaints about not blogging on a regular bases! so leave comments!

Tuesday, February 6, 2007


i spent my semester break in utah! it was quite exciting! it was only me, carson, and hannah! and we met up with lauren and chris once we were up there. we left after finals on thrusday and went up to st. george, where we stayed at hannah's grandparents' house. i went to dinner with my grandma at eatza pizza! it was way fun! on my way to pick her up, i almost got pulled over by a cop! it was kinda scary becasue, one, i wsa in utah, in a town i'm not very familiar wiht, and two, i was in carson's car...alone. right after i had made a right hand turn, a heard a siren and saw the flashing lights. my heart stopped for a second, and i pulled over. the cop passed me and ended up pulling the car in front of me over. dodged that ticket!
the next day, we continued on our journey to provo! dropped our stuff off at beth nelson's house hannah's cousin) and went to the byu campus to talk to admissions (nothing exciting). then me and hannah took carson's car hostage and met lauren at the mall! where we sat on a bench until we went to pick carson ready for the evening, spentalmost an hour trying to find paul huggans, got dropped off with hannah and lauren at some beauty school and piled into paul's two-seater pick-up. it was kinda funny watching paul drive a stick shift in between hannah's legs. later that night after a few unforgettable games of tetris, hannah, paul and i went to a dance party at Glenwood Apartments. we walked in, stayed for a few minutes, manuevered our way out again (it was so crowded) and stood outside talking about how someone should yell BOMB! so everyone would run out, when to our surprise, we hear BOOM! AHHHH! and then saw a bunch of people running out...of course, we run back in, and see that that floor had totally caved in! the carpet was still intact, but the foundation had fallen through the basement!
next day, hannah and i drop carosn off at his audition and take a tour of paul mitchell...hannah needs to go there! it was way cool! don't really remember what we did for the rest of the day...but that night, carson, chris, the simmons, and i went to see alyssa in oklahoma. it was good. after, we had to stand outside waiting for alyssa--it was so cold! i'm not sure what i'm going to do if i move up there! after that, i went to meet up with hannah, paul and jordan. we drove around for a while...doing nothing, and that was the end.
woke up really early next moring, stopped for krispy kremes of course, and started on our way home. we kept seeing this truck that said SHWING! and it made me laugh...i got pictures. we also saw these two really macho men driving a car with FERGIE on their license plate. pretty fun trip if you ask me!

wing stop

i hesitate to blog about this, because oncethis place gets too big, it won't be the same. i was recently converted to this new way of eating and i love it! what i get there: mild wings with ranch and diet coke. yum! yum! the last time i went there, i tried an atomic wing. mind you, these wings are so hot, when one is three feet away, you feel your nose hairs begins to twitch. i almost cried, but held in the tears. after eating it, i didn want to throw up for about three hours afterward, but decided that making it pass through my throat again would be considered torturous in some countries. who else ate these you ask? well, lacey and deannie joined me in the one atomic eating extravaganze, brought on by chad eating 11 in ten minutes (training for upcoming competetion). michael roberts also ate one, and cried! and cedric (the beast) balderama ate five in thirty seconds flat! it was funny because all of the sudden he reaached over, grabbed the plate, and scarfed 'em before anyone even realized what he was doing. hence, his new nickname, the beast. luckily, lacey caught all of the action on camera!

so i finally have time to that the cabaret is over. i'm surprised at how well we did, especially considering all the last minute things we added. (we made made changes up until about 5 minutes before show-time...granted, they were minor, but changes they were.) right now, i'm sitting in the school computer lab listening to some quite addicting scaw/reggae music, compliments of Louis (Loo-ey)--what a character. We had auditions last night for Jeckyll and Hyde. They went well. the cast should be quite fun--it's mostly people who did the cabaret with a few exciting surprises, like cedric! we have call backs today...whcih means that i have to act...scary! i'm not really an fact i don't think i've ever acted in my life, i'm worried i won't be very good at it. oh well! we'll see...what do i have to lose, right? i'm going to go now...mainly for fear of boring whoever was kind enough to read this latest message...have a good day!
