Warm Rain

Can you hear me? Am I getting through to you?

Is it late there?
There's a laughter on the line. Are you sure youre there alone?
'cause I'm trying to explain somethings wrong. You just dont sound the same.

Why don't you go outside
Kiss the Rain

Do you miss me?
I hear you say you do But not the way I'm missing you.

What's new?
Hows the weather?
Is it stormy where you are?
You sound so close but it feels like youre so far.
Oh would it mean anything if you knew What I'm left imagining in my mind?

Would you go
Kiss the rain

As you fall over me
Think of me; Only me
Kiss the rain
Whenever you need me
Kiss the rain
Whenever I'm gone too long
If your lips feel lonely and thirsty
Kiss the rain
And wait for the dawn
Keep in mind
Were under the same sky
And the nights
As empty for me as for you
If you feel
You cant wait till morning
Kiss the rain

Anything for laugh

Friday was Free Freeze Pop Day. This involved us sitting out on BYU campus with a sign, lawn chairs, and a cooler full of dry ice, Sobes, and of course, Freeze Pops. The idea was anyone could get a freeze pop if they made us laugh.

We laughed at:
an EFY counselor perform two ridiculous dancers with his kids
An EFY group perform an entire skit
Two girls doing a clapping/slapping routine they had known since sixth grade
Kids walking on their knees
A full stand up routine
countless jokes and embarrassing moments. Here are the highlights:

An EFY EMT recalled how the counselors decided to turn the service project into a race. All of them ran up to get the supplies for their groups. The grabbed handfuls of blankets and (oops) scissors. Unfortunately, some of the scissors were open. The EMT got called and sent to the bathroom where she found blood EVERYWHERE! On the mirrors, the sinks, the floor, the door handles, the walls. She asked who was hurt, around eight counselors responded: ME!

A Couple recounted how he had "lost" the car for four days. They thought it had been stolen and reported it to the police. As it turns out he had just parked it and forgot about it.

A boy trying to impress the ladies was riding his bike in front of the yard the girls were standing in. A little dog barked at him and he turned to shoo it away. He turned around and ran smack into a mailbox.

Did you know that Helen Keller had a dollhouse?
Neither did she.

A boy with a wooden eye goes to a dance and sees a way hot girl with a wooden leg. He asks her if she'd like to dance and excitedly she replies: Would I, Would I!!! He replies: Peg leg Peg leg.

What do you call a man with no arms and no legs up in a tree?

A man comes home to find his girlfriend packing. She's visibly upset so he asks her what's wrong. "I'm leaving you! I just found you're a pedophile!" "A pedophile? That's an awfully big word for a ten year old."

How do you make Holy water?
You boil the hell out of it

What do you do with Holy Water?
You make pope-sicles

And so on. The day was a success.

She wants a car that will get her there

After some waiting I finally received a car from my Aunt and Uncle. I love them both dearly, and a year and a half ago they decided to fix up their old car for me. This car is now in my possession. I love it.

It's very old, a 91, and it's quite ragged. All it really needs is time and money. I decided to name the car Ferrall. So there you have it, Ferrall is doing quite splendidly.

I named him that because he's wild, and because He comes from the Ferrall side of my family. I've always wanted to be a Ferrall girl, with the skinny ankles, the long tapered fingers, the red hair and the firery personality to match. I decided If I can't be a Ferrall, at least my car can; Which I know makes no sense whatsoever, but it works.

Yesterday Bradley and I went on a mission to make Ferrall beautiful. We bought him seat covers, a steering wheel cover (That is oh-so-soft!) and hubcaps. Bradley was so patient with me the whole time. Afterward we went through a car wash and scrubbed him clean. Afterward I vacuumed his insides while Bradley put on the hubcaps.

Voila! Ferrall is the most gorgeous cars on the road! He just needs minor improvements from here on out.

Road Trip!

The adventure begins:

After a late start Kris, Nate and I head out in Charlotte. The ride is very long. After 4 1/2 hours of straight driving we stop in Monticello to stretch out legs and view the temple.

Kris and Nate had a serious conversation

A little snack-y snack is in order before taking off again.

Soon the journey continued and at 9pm we finally arrived at the hotel. Pratt was waiting outside so i got to see him as soon as we pulled into the parking lot.

We attempted swimming at the outdoor pool was the water was frigid so we retreated back inside after ten minutes.

The next day Pratt and I went in search of breakfast (Have you ever eaten McDonald's in front of a vegetarian? They look at you like you're barbecuing a baby!) And had quite the wonderful talk.

Back at the hotel, Nate and Kris were still getting ready for the day

Afterward all four of us headed out to Mesa Verde so see the sites. And what amazing sites they were!

We went back to the hotel for more swimming, which, again, I couldn't do for long so Pratt and I talked while Kris and Nate swam. We then went to dinner which turned out to be wonderful both in the food and in the before, during and after conversation.

Sunday morning is time for good-byes

Nate is confident he can drive us back to Provo

It is a very, very long car ride. kris thinks she might asplode

Thankfully, we all make it back safely (well, almost; After we had parked Kris fell out of the car, but she was ok).

Looking forward to the next road trip!!!

"We have them, repeat, we have them!"

Last night was the best night game adventure ever!

It was a really good turn out (12 people) So we could play the fugitive game. It was so much fun! Afterward we played Ghosts in the Graveyard and Bradley, Jennie and I ended up singing at the top of our lungs so we would be found. Afterward we went back to the house and played Super smash Brothers, which was hilarious. We ate the most delicious drumsticks and ice cream sandwiches.

Everyone said they had fun so we're going to play again, maybe next week. It's good to have Miriam back, now if only Matt and Pratt would be the cops and Sarah could be a fugitive. . . I could see this being the best game ever.
