i tried something really disgusting today. this happens more often than it used to. my roommate is from china and often brings home random foods from the asian market down the street. i usually just say no, but i thought, why not? i'll tell you why not. i just tried the most disgusting "cake" ever made by human hands. it was a cream roll cake type thing made from the nastiest fruit that ever did grow on a tree. this fruit is commonly known as the durian. it smells SO bad. in fact, i looked on wikipedia and in every paragraph it talked about how badly it smells. in case you were wondering, i do not recommend this fruit or any byproduct (such as the cake i sampled) to anyone. not even my worst enemy. the taste is still in my mouth. it's been forty minutes, i've brushed my teeth, scraped my tongue and have gone through three pieces of gum. the recovery time just isn't worth it. but, i think i just got an idea for my next prank...

...looked out the window and what did i see?


ok, so it's not popcorn. in fact, it's not even an apricot tree. but still, you can finally tell it's spring! the trees are blossoming and it's so beautiful! not incredible for allergies...but beautiful nonetheless. i wish it could look like this all the time!

stat counter...

today is a sad day. my stat counter is no longer working...the last entry i got was on march 28, from paris, france...
i don't know how big of a secret this as been, but for those of you who don't know, i've been tracking you for years. i had a tracker on my blog so i could tell how many viewers i had. it was quite a handy little thing. it could tell me so much information! when you checked my blog, how long you were on it, any referring links, your ip address, the location of your internet connection, what type of browser you had, etc. it has been amazing! if i knew you, i could probably tell who you were and labeled your ip address for future reference. but now that my stat counter is broken, i can no longer be creepy and stalker-ish...bummer. so, feel free to roam my blog with reckless abandon! i'll have no idea who were on. now you can be the creepy stalker, and i'll just provide you with endless entertainment, as always.

guilty pleasure

i saw the movie penelope (see below) for the third time tonight. i'm a little embarrassed to be admitting this, but what can i say? i'm a sucker for happy endings. plus, it's playing at the dollar theater...so why not, right?

probably the biggest undertaking since i took math 119. my ward relief society decided to make a cookbook so we could all remember each other next year and have something to feed ourselves with. my idea actually, so i did it. i'm kind of a perfectionists so it took me a little longer than others to put it together probably, but hey, it better that way! i dropped it off at the copy center yesterday afternoon and they called me this morning at eight o'clock no less, and told me it was ready to picked up at my earliest convenience! so it's done! i don't have to deal with it anymore! you can't understand the happiness i feel right now. except now i have to focus on finals...yuck.

i saw the movie penelope tonight. it was playing at the dollar theater in provo. i was so surprised! i really liked it! i wasn't really expecting much...and it turned out to be good! that doesn't always happen you know...
you should go see it!
i'm going to have to admit...i was a little confused at times. for instance, i never did figure out where the movie was supposed to take place. everyone spoke with a different accent...kind of surprising at times. and also, main character played by james mcavoy, above, spoke with an american accent. he's scottish...so this surprised me a bit. it would have been expected except half of the cast had accents from all over the place, ireland, england, etc. so why couldn't mcavoy keep his? we may never know...it did slip through a few times. nobody's perfect.

best books of all time

possibly my favorite books of all time, confessions of a shopaholic (and series), are being made into a movie. and i'm not happy about it. these books made me laugh, made me cry, made me hate and love, and so many other things. i just couldn't get enough of becky bloomwood! and there's never enough luke brandon to go around. while reading these books, i felt myself become the becky we all know and love. (this is a dangerous thing at times) but nonetheless, i love her! i am her!
from the talk on the street, the movie isn't going to be like the book at all! first of all, it's set in New York, and Becky is an american. really? this is not ok with me at all. becky lives in london! she is british! and she does not look like isla fisher! i really want to boycott the movie...but i don't think i'll be able to. i think i'm going to go re-read the books now. maybe that will make me feel a little better. comments?

mom's visit!

my mom came to utah for my folk dance show and it was so much fun! we went to pudding on the rice, we hiked the to the top of the y, we got our nails done, we went to pudding on the rice, we drove around, we went out to eat, and slept in a hotel! it was way fun.

hiking to the top of the Y was really fun, until we started coming down. it had snowed a few days before and there was frost on the ground from the night before. we didn't think it was going to be a problem but i was practically skiing down the trail. it was no good. every step we took, a new layer of mud clung to the bottom of our shoes. it was impossible.

at the bottom of the Y, thought we could get a better picture there.

this wasn't even the worst of it...

folk dance!

i had my folk dance show this week! it was a ton of fun! my favorite part, by far, was my costume. it was legit. my team did a dance from poland. i would tell you what it was called, but i have no idea how to spell it. it comes from krakow if you want to wikipedia it.

the flowers on top of my head are the best. my mom had to fly over special to help me put my hair in a french braid!
