The beast that haunts my dreams!

Well, more to make a habit than anything else, here's another post.

Since I've gotten home, recurring nightmares have disturbed my sleep. Each time I close my eyes, I'm haunted by a creature so fearsome, my blood freezes and I awake in a cold sweat. He's always there - watching, waiting...!

Ok, well I'll be honest, none of that is really true in the least. Isn't he cute! That's Fritz, the family pup! He's only 4 months old so he's kinda small, but that adds to the fun! Go dog!

Moving on! I'm not sure if any of the rest of you felt it, but church was weird... really weird! Family wards don't really hold anything for me anymore I guess... As cliche and lame as it is, I think I'm going to have to investigate the local singles ward to try to indulge myself in some college-age fun.

Well - time to sign off for the night. Special shout out to you Hannah - congrats on makin' it back to Mississippi! I couldn't make that drive from Provo..... ever! Glad you made it home safe!

Back to the Beach

after a short drive down california street, dad and i showed up at a local car show called "back to the beach". with engines roaring and tires squealing, we made our way around the ventura fair-grounds checkin' all the sweet old-school cars - everything from 1930s chop-top model a's to the phat 1960s surf-board-sportin woodies. we even got to see a four-foot merc!

after taking our time paroozing the car show we went and i got to finally go back to the beach myself after a two 'n a half year hiatus. to say the least, it was incredible. pods of dolphins and rogue hump-back whales were only a couple things that made the trip so amazing. we also had the opportunity to cruise down thomas street and get authentic fish tacos from carrelies - so delicious! anyways... i think i've said enough. i'll leave a bunch of pictures of for you to see - let you see the beauty of ventura and rincon beaches yourselves.


Every day you learn something new!

I can now testify that that statement is indeed true...

Today it was brought to my attention that the family cell-phone bill was staggeringly higher than it should have been - $400! That would have been great to have learned on its own, but my wonderful mother so willingly told me that $147 of it was due to my 700 text messages, which after talking to the nice man at the Sprint store, we learned cost $0.20 a piece... Pretty sweet, huh? It's not all bad though - we fixed it so that rather than my mom's phone getting infinite texts, I do, and all for no extra cost! Maybe I'll get good enough to rival the Sprint Store's record for text messages in one month - 12,000!

We've decided to keep it all a secret from dad - I'd like to see the sun of another day!

Three's Company

Hello world! Actually - lets be real - Hello Hannah and Dani! Until more people figure out I'm here, this will basically be a communication between us three, so we'll skip the introduction.

Today I made the long trek from Utah down to my home town of Valencia, California. That's a total of ten hours of straight driving. Needless to say, with ten hours of driving by myself, I had plenty of time to think.

As I drove, I came to a few conclusions. First, I thought about my friendships up in Utah - who each one of my friends was, what the meant to me, and how we got along. After thinking about the relationship I have with you two girls, it struck me... it was all so clear! I knew I had seen the exact same situation before on television; I realized that our friendship paralleled that of Jack Tripper, Janet Wood, and Chrissy Snow - That's right, we are the cast of the popular 1977 sitcom "Three's Company"! I don't know why it took so long to realize, but I actually think it's quite fitting.

Of course, Dani would play the role of Janet (pretty sweet make-up! Take notes ladies!), I would be the dashing stallion Jack Tripper (I mean seriously, look at those sweet shorts), and Hannah is the lovable Chrissy Snow (is her hand really reaching down my shirt?). For real, can't you see it? Every episode starts with the three starting some kind of fight amongst themselves, but by the end of the half-hour they all love each other more than ever!

Whats better is I even realized that while our trio had its fare share of adventures, we must remember that every so often they got a small visit from their good friend Ralph Furley, who in our real live drama is none other than the champ Jon Lysy. Don't deny it... I know you're imagining the whole thing right now!

Yeah.... well.... That's only the beginning of the depths I discovered as I spent those long ten hours alone. It's amazing what you come up with when no one else is there to entertain you!

Anyways! My small dog Fritz is chewing off my arms at the moment, so I can't really devote any more time to writing. I miss you two already!
