Flirting Works

Who would have thunk? I am officially growing up. I flirt, and its fun. It doesn't freak me out, and it brings joy. This wouldn't be monumental to other people, but I got asked out. Went on the date and had a good time. Learned I can't expect him to make a further move if I don't play along. Sitting and waiting does do anything except give you a sore bum. So, I asked him to have a picnic lunch with me today. Let's just say there was cuteness, guitar lessons, and music sung especially to me.

I guess the boys got the memo....FINALLY!

Maybe I just blossom in spring...or I'm luckier than normal....but sweet things have been happening in Melinda World. Yesterday a boy told me my eyes sparkle in the sunlight, and today an old friend told me I was pretty, beautiful, and I have blossomed well. Yay for happy days!

Monday, March 15, 2010'd better start lining up

Just realized in 362 days I can put in my mission papers. Yup, I'm growing up.

Prayer Works! and toilets flush

I knew that already, but I had a manifestation of it today. We had a clogged toilet. Charli tried for a while. I gave it a go. I got it flushing better, but it wasn't up to snuff. We needed to call our landlord, but no one wanted to. I felt like I was missing some critical thing in the situation. After trying too many times, it clicked. Pray. duh!!!! Prayer...and what do you know...He helped me fix the toilet. Yes, prayer works.

Dance Sport

This morning was Dance Sport (the big competition for BYU social dance students). It is also the same weekend as the US National Championships (which are always held at BYU? maybe. that's an unconfirmed idea). Spencer and I did the Cha Cha, and we loved it. We made it through the 5 preliminary rounds, but didn't make it to the quarter finals. Our teacher said we should have made it, but he thinks the judges couldn't see our number because of positioning. Oh well, we had a blast, and I looked great.

The really big, really cool sign.

The intimidating floor. We always danced right in front of that break in the tables, why, because it had the best placement for the judges to see us. yup, we're tricky.

Brains on the ground, Brains on the ground, Whatcha gonna do with your brians on the ground?

Simple story. Last night I was reenacting something a friend did. It didn't go well. I wasn't paying attention to the table next to me. So when I threw myself on the ground, I didn't realize there was a table corner in my way. Well I hit it so hard my brains fell out. Ashlee was kind enough to pick them up, wipe them off, and stick them back in. I haven't been the same since.

Actually, I just goosed over REALLY bad, but it felt like my brains fell out. I still feel disconnected form my body.

I love the Meat Market Book

Our ward directory has many silly names. We all like to make fun of it, and jokingly go through it with red marker. Well I've been staring at it for months now, trying to memorize names, and I just barely came upon the funniest thing in the book. Here is a common exerpt from many ward directories across the globe.

This directory is to be used only for Church purposes and shall not be copied without the permission of the bishop or stake president.

Then beneath only a single's ward would do, it says...

Church purposes do include eternal progression and preparation to enter the highest degree of the celestial kingdom.

If you don't find this funny, think about it. When you get it and start peeing your pants, just know I'm still laughing at it, and its been a couple days.

If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear

Let's just say I warned, and warned, and we were all fearful. We were running low on toilet paper, and I warned those with cars who often make grocery runs...but no one took any heed. So its Sunday and we run completely out of toilet paper. But we have enough tissues to soak up the Black Sea, so we used tissues for three days. YUP, we are officially silly college girls.
