Our Bombin' Weekend

This weekend we took an adventure up to Brecken's cabin with Annie and Brecken.  (Annie, here is your debut on our blog!) After Domino's fell through- turns out they close at ten on Friday nights... lying whores- we decided to go to Sonic.  
Pretty much the only good parts of our kids meals were the spy gear toys.  Soggy grilled cheese and tater tots- they even somehow managed to mess up grilled cheese.  What a dinner.
Back to B-reck's cabin where we ate lots of candy and watched Laguna Beach- TWO WHOLE DISCS!  Sugar buzzed and wide awake we played some intense pool games....
while Brecken slept on the couch.
Annie, fancying herself as quite the prankster, was sick of Brecken sleeping so she decided to test the old method of putting someone's hand in warm water to make them pee their pants...  It did not work.  But it was worth a try.

All in all a fun break from finals

Picking Classes

Picking classes is seriously one of the most overwhelming things ever for me.  I start by simply browsing over generals and then suddenly before I know it I'm terrified to click the "add" button on a class because I'm afraid that this particular class in this particular major will prevent me from getting a successful job and then I will fail at life and end up never moving out of my parents' house.  

But then I get a little comfort in the fact that I am not alone.  I just finished Anna Karenina (finally!)  and this little passage tells everything I'm feeling way more eloquently than I can express it:

"Oh, what a wonderful age you are," Anna went on.  "I remember very well that sort of blue mist, like the mist on the Swiss mountains.  That mist that envelops everything in the blissful time when childhood is just coming to an end, and out of the vast circle, happy and gay, a path takes shape that keeps getting narrower and narrower, and you go on to this lane gaily and fearfully, even though it looks right and lovely... Who hasn't passed through that?"

But then again should I really be taking advice from a woman who threw herself under a train?  Whatever, I'll just pick easy "grade-boosting" generals and figure I'll get my life together next semester.

Picking Classes

Ok so something weird is going on with this whole underlining thing.  Let me just start over and make a new post.

So Steph has been trying to get me to blog for eons and now that I should be studying I have to decided to write on our blog. It is amazing how fast a day goes by and how many things come up when you plan to study all day. Today for instance I was planning on studying all day for the final I have on friday however I don't know where the day has gone and I have only studied for two hours! Some of the day was spent watching the new episode of Gossip Girl at Fannie's house. They seemed to be really trying to pack as much drama as they could in one episode to make up for all the time they lost during the writers strike. Also everyone came back to the show with new haircuts. Little J got a new hair cut and looks less unfortunate however still she is just as retarded if not more than before!

Back to pretending to study!

Ok, I just have to document this.  Masha came into my room today (at my family's house) and she was shocked because my room is so clean.  It is probably the cleanest it's been in over 6 months.  Even Mammy commented on how long it's been since she's seen my floor.  And it's true- my room is never clean.  This is mostly because I'm lazy and never put stuff away but still I can always find things when it's messy.  It's almost an organized mess.  Well I take that back, I can never find a complete pair of shoes.  But anyways, it's my Mom's birthday tomorrow and I'm hoping that this clean room can count for her present because the other present she asked for is a food processor and I have no idea where to get one of those.

All I can say is it's amazing what I do to avoid studying for finals!

After heli-skiing the adventure didn't end!  Straight to Jackson for Sigma Chi Formal '08

HELLA- Skiing

Mammy and Fannie had yet another adventure this past weekend: heli-skiing!  We went with the  Wasatch Powderbird Guides and skied pretty much in the tri-canyon area.  We started on the north face of Superior and made a circle through places like Cardiff and Mineral.  Two Guys was also a sick run.

The powder was amazing, however after the spring skiing conditions of late, as well as days at Snowbird that only consisted of a couple hours of groomers, the knee-deep powder was grueling on poor Mammy's legs.  But despite all that it was awesome!
