My Date with Michael Phelps

I went on a date with Michael Phelps! First, Michael came and picked me up at my house in Provo. Then we went swimming in this super cool swimming pool and he taught me how to swim. Then we went back to my house and watched meteor showers on the front lawn. We held hands and his hands were about 3 times the size of mine. He was so cute and such a gentleman. It was the best date ever. Unfortunately, I woke up.

My analysis: I should marry Michael Phelps.

The Synchronized Swimming Team Look Like Drag-Queens

That's right. I said it. I don't know if it's the terrible blue eyeshadow, the lack of chests, the rippling arm muscles, the narrow noses due to the nose pinchers (making them look like the males who get facial re-constructive surgery to make them look more like females, thus making their noses narrower), or the loudly colored awkward outfits. But all I know, is that I think they look like drag queens. CLEARLY, they don't look like them all the time, just when they are in the water with all the weird outfits. I'm sure they are gorgeous girls out of the water and in normal make up.

Apologies to anyone who is/related to/in love with a synchronized swimmer.

While driving through Provo, every now and then you see something sort of weird/strange. Well it is my new goal in life to capture these things, for posterity's sake. Here is a video showing a guy that was uni cycling at an alarming speed down University Parkway. Laura and I couldn't help but LOVE this. So, I pulled my trusty camera out of my purse and shot a quick video.

Pet Peeves

This post is inspired by my fellow blogging buddy, Brook.

I have many pet peeves, but these are just a few that I can remember at the moment.

In no particular order:
1. Cold Showers- I grew up with a little brother that could apparently stand the heat of scalding water and so he would turn the water on FULL blast as hot as it would go. So I had many a cold shower in my youth.
2. Tying my shoes- I hate when you take them off at someone's house and then you and your friends are about to leave somewhere and they all have slip-ons and you are stuck squatting down and tying your shoes. It just feels like a waste of time to me. So, my junior year of High School, I bought some Velcro Skechers. Very efficient.
3. This one was inspired by Darrell. When people put quotation marks around words that should not have them. Such as this:
4. Russian Roommates that you can't say "NO" to. So they take full advantage of it and borrow your favorite dress from New York, and wait forever to give it back.
5. People that whine entirely too much.
6. Crocs. I don't care if they are comfortable, they are ugly.
7. When people make unnecessary movement while you're watching a movie or something. My little brother would always be throwing a ball up in the air or something and I could only see it out of the tiny corner of my eye. It drove me nuts.
8. The small marquee at the bottom of the screen when you're watching CNN. Don't they know that EVERYONE reads that rather than listen to what the news caster is saying?
9. Busy Work
10. When people say, "You look tired." haha. I think that's so harsh. You might as well say, "WOW! You look like crap!"
11. WhEn PeOpLe TyPe ThInGs LiKe ThIs. It'S rEtArDeD.
12. People that cut in line. It's totally elementary school, but still annoying.
13. Back Packs with the rollers on the bottom of them. I have enough reasons to trip while walking across campus, I don't need your help.
14. When flip-flops decide to break while you're walking through a store. So you either continue walking without shoes, or look like an idiot trying to scoot your broken flip flop with the bottom of your foot.
15. When people wear leggings to church.

Those are some of my pet peeves. What are your pet peeves?
