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!

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.

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).

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.

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 euthanasia...my 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.
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

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

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

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
