It has been at least 1.5 years since I have changed any of the settings on my speed dial. To have a position on my speed dial means everything. You really have to earn your place there. In fact, I keep people on my speed dial not because I talk to them often, but because the friendship deserves a spot.
Tonight I changed one of the settings. The new lucky occupant of space #5 is (drum roll)...
MARK JOHNSON congrats mark, you deserve the honor.
I never wanted to be the girl that posts a million videos on her blog, but tonight I just can't help it. The other night my roommates and I spent hours and hours looking up YouTube videos of animals. I couldn't stop thinking about some of the videos, so I have decided to share. These are my top 3:
3 summers ago my roommates and I started watching the Alias series. During that time, we were practically obsessed. In fact I am pretty sure that some of the girls may have even made Jack Bristow t-shirts.
At one point I remember frantically calling all of the video stores in Provo looking for a specific disk. I even think that we may have driven all the way out to Springville or Spanish Fork to get that disk. Later the general manager for the nearest Hollywood Video moved into our ward. When he first met me and Lily he knew we seemed familiar, moments later he said "you are the Alias girls."
Our obsession ended midway through the 4th season, as the series seemed to be going down hill fast. We decided it just wasn't worth the dedication anymore, and we gave up. Ever since then, a part of me has always wondered how it all ended. I wanted to know what happened to Sydney Bristow, and to agent Vaughn. Over the years I have asked around to find out what happened, but I was never able to get a clear answer.
A little a while ago I noticed that Justin owned the 5th season. After noticing I asked him to tell me what happened. He suggested that I just watch the 5th season and find out for myself. So I did. I watched the 5th season of Alias in 5 days. It feels so good to finally know. I have all of the answers I ever needed. I feel a sense of peace and closure. I had no idea it would be this fulfilling.
Last night, running charades made its debut in Seattle. It went over really well, in fact I would say it was a major success. But, of course it was a major success. How could it not be? I realize that some people may not know what running charades is, so I thought about typing up an explanation. Then I just felt lazy, so I googled it and was surprised when I found this perfect description.
My friend Justin and I went to the American Idols concert tonight.
David Cook was AMAZING. He really puts on a good show, and is ruggedly handsome.
Brooke was finally able to redeem herself in my eyes. In fact when she puts out an album I might actually buy it.
Carly's performance was touching and powerful. She has such an incredible voice and is a great performer.
Ramiele's outfit was too sparkly and it prevented me from paying attention to her music.
Syesha failed to impress me.
Jason Castro was not boring, and he still has the prettiest face I have ever seen on a male.
Kristy Lee Cook loves Seattle and loves to sing God Bless the USA.
Michael Johns never stops being attractive, and I still think he got kicked off too early in the show
Chikezie was a bit on the boring side.
David Archuleta stole my heart all over again. It is a little upsetting how quickly he walked right into my life and then walked right out. How can one person be so lovable?? I kinda want to shrink his head and hang it from my rear view mirror, oh shucks, I think Paula thought of that first.
I am not sure you can ever be really prepared to have your heart broken. Maybe I was holding out for things to change. Maybe I thought things would go my way. I never wanted this. I feel sick. I want to cry. I want to scream. It all seems so final now.
