I got tagged… thanks Heather. Don’t worry though, I’m totally using this to my advantage and making a real post out of it.
Four jobs I’ve had
1. “Kart Krew” - The Colony, Texas - Wal*Mart - Quite possibly THE. WORST. JOB. EVER. Imagine one of the hottest Texas summers ever (2001-100s every single day), now imagine pushing carts all damn day in a parking lot. Sounds awesome right? Oh wait, there’s more. Add the worst manager’s ever to that equation. People who weren’t even my manager would give me tips on pushing carts (you push the damn thing, end of story) and tattle on me for taking a 5 minute break because I was hot and my foot got ran over by a train of carts. I got written up - I quit. Then end. Worst 2 months of my life.
2. Technical Support Representative - Carrollton, Texas - Stream International - Actually not a bad job, just had to deal with plenty of angry customers. The 18 months I worked there really helped me get a lot of jobs I’ve had. Once helped a blind woman reconnect to the internet - made me think a lot and never take my sight for granted again.
3. Media Salesperson - Orem, Utah - Best Buy - Actually went from wanting to eventually be a Store Manager and hating my own Store Managers in about a month’s span. Loved to shop there, hated to work there.
4. “Office Bitch” - Dallas, Texas - Some Medical Company - I forgot the name of the company, I loved all the Women I worked with, they were especially nice and even got me a graduation present. Doing all the bitch work wasn’t the best, but it let me stay in Co-op and leave school everyday at 12:45. All in all, not too bad.
Four movies I can watch over and over
This is quite possibly the most difficult question ever. I think the first summer I finally lived on my own without any family members I bought about 100 movies in a few months span. But alas, I must choose.
1. Out Cold - “No regrets… that’s my motto… that, and everybody wang chung tonight” I have watched this movie countless times, and I really can’t get enough of it. Excellent soundtrack, great cast, silly highjinks. I try to work it into everyday conversation, especially with Eli.
Me, “You know if we got a house in Utah it would be just like Out Cold”
Eli, “You’re right, it’s settled, we need a house”
2. Anchorman - Rent the unrated version, watch it with commentary on. Enough said.
3. Fight Club - “You just had a near-life experience” Freaked me out the first time I watched it. Excellent movie. If you haven’t seen it, you really need to.
4. Office Space - “Naga…. Naga…. Not gonna work here anymore anyway” During College, Trevon, Cameron and I watched this about 2 times a week. I really don’t get tired of it.
Four places I have lived
1. Maysville, Kentucky - Where I lived until I was 7.5 years old. I still consider it home, and I will always bleed Kentucky Blue. Next time you wonder why the sky is blue… it’s because God is a UK fan. Thank me later.
2. The Colony, Texas - The Colony was on the rise when we first moved here, now it’s just getting more and more ghetto as the seconds pass. We have 27 liquor stores, 12 gas stations, and what was once the biggest Wal*Mart this side of the Mississippi. Yee-haw indeed.
3. King Henry Apartments - Provo, Utah - 6 guys, 3 rooms, 1 tiny bathroom. Tim and I actually talked about this experience today. 2 of our roommates were apparently unable to do dishes, but WERE able to shop at Costco and take up the whole damn fridge. One roommate was a good friend from Texas who ended up moving out early because he is pussy whipped, who was then replaced by someone who smelled like all sorts off ass. The other roommate is still a good friend, even though he is 27 and not married and still lives in Provo, which is considered 3 strikes in the Mormon religion.
4. The Riviera Apartments - Provo, Utah - Many different roommates, many different experiences. Heber - from South Africa, awesome guy. Moved next door when Eli moved in… quickly disappeared off the face of the earth afterwards. The two Russian douchebags - Both went on Mormon missions to Russia, both ate a lot of potatoes. Also were unable to dishes or speak English to one another. One listened to shitty Russian music all the time, and without him knowing, me and Eli would always dance behind him air humping anything near us. All the other roommates (Andrew, Trent, Zac, and Jesse) I still love dearly and plan on living with when everyone is back from there missions (2 down, 2 to go) and freaking rock the dragon (don’t ask) like it’s never been rocked before.
Oh yea…. ‘The Riv’ was really ghetto. I once ran through the fence easily after my friend bet me a burrito I couldn’t. Yea I admitted it finally, so what? Suck it Riviera.
Four TV shows I love
1. 24 - New found love.
2. Family Guy - Makes me laugh out loud at least once an episode, which is really hard to do with me.
3. The Office - Greatness.
4. My name is Earl - Really hits home.
Four places I’ve vacationed
1. Utah - WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
2. Orlando, Florida - Never went to Disneyworld cause some bitch hurricane had to come and ruin my childhood.
3. Wyoming - Family Reunion, which Heather did not experience. One day soon I’ll post the English paper I wrote on it. Reunion involved white water rafting and a lot of bitching aka GOOD TIMES.
4. The Grand Canyon - Sucked. What’s the big deal?
Four of my favorite dishes
1. Jambalaya - recipe posted soon
2. Spicy Tuna Roll - Japango - local sushi place
3. Biscuits and Gravy from my mom.
4. Chocolate Delight, again, from my mom.
Four sites I visit daily
3. Myspace Yes, I’m a whore.
4. Dictionary I like words, and to be sure I’m spelling things write.
Four places I would rather be right now
1. San Diego, California - You stay classy San Diego.
2. Lexington, Kentucky - Never been to a UK home game.
3. Watching the sunset with someone special in Utah - The mountains are in my blood now, it’s sickening.
4. Anywhere but here, I don’t know of a 4th one right now.
Five people I am tagging
5. Who the hell ever wants to. I don’t read that many blogs, I’m sorry. I’d tag ESPN.com, but I don’t think I’d get a response.

Natasha Bedingfield - These Words
Last Heard: Last night while “bowling” the term bowling is used loosely because we actually never bowled. We sat around waiting for 2 hours while our name was never called because every douche face who goes to UNT was at the bowling alley for $1 dolla make you holla night.
Last Discussed: With Caroline last night on aol. Conversation went something a little like this.
Me: You know what I love?
Caroline: Besides flocking vagina?
Me: Of course, These Words by Natasha Bedingfield. It just makes me happy.
Caroline: How are there not girls all over you 24-7? You’re a giant teddy bear.
*conversation may or may not have been changed.

One year wiser?
I’m not sure yet, I don’t even really feel 21 years old. After 16 it never really feels like your birthday anymore, you just feel like you’re getting older. That might be due to the fact that there really is no more birthday parties. Just parties where your friends come over and you act like complete jackasses until 7am and then wake up at 12:30pm the next day, dust yourself off, and head out for breakfast at IHOP sunday “morning” while everyone is coming back from church.
The dirty looks you receive walking down the stairs add to that great feeling some call “nostalgia”. Pissing off the exact type of person that made me want to leave Utah in the first place, just made me want to come back that much more.
I really can’t wait to move back out here and do this on a regular basis.

I just checked my email and received this from my Mom.
Hey George, 21 years ago tonight, Robert, Tim and Dad came to the hospital in Maysville to see you. I remember they were all so excited. Tim and Robert had been soooooo excited for weeks waiting for you to come bouncing into the world. Sunday, the 21st of January, we woke up to snow, snow, and more snow. We lived down the lane from the highway in a big old “Gone With the Wind” type house close to Germantown, KY. Unfortunately the lane had disappeared under a huge blanket of snow. With the wind howling outside the wind chill was 60 degrees below zero. I was so afraid that you might decide to come that Sunday that I just layed in the bed all day. I didn’t know how we could drive to the doctor as the road had disappeared under the snow banks. It was drifted several feet in the lane. Luckily you were not ready to enter mortality yet!!! The next morning Dad drove the van across the snow covered field beside the house and made it to Maysville. He went to Carnation Can, where he worked and put a 200 lb. motor in the back of the van for extra weight to keep the van from sliding in the snow. Then he came back home to get me, Robert and Tim. I had a doctor’s appointment. They sent me on to the hospital. However, you didn’t come on Monday either. They said I could go home and I said no way, I would just stay at the hospital overnight. The next morning you began your treck into the world. William and Lola came to the hospital and were in the labor room with me and Danny for a while. Doctor Wilson would come in periodically to check on your progress. Once before he came in William let a big stinker, and then the dr. came in and I was sure he thought it was me!!! I was so mad at William. A little after noon, you were born. All in the delivery room were amazed at you, 10 lb. 10 oz. 23 inches long!!!! You almost slipped out of the Dr.’s hands. And one of the nurses said, “Why Mrs. Boone you will have to put 6 mo. clothes on this baby to take him home. For the next few days people were looking in my room to see the Mom who gave birth to handsome Baby George!!!! When we left the hospital, not many people were in town because of the weather, but I just wanted to say to anyone, “Hey, come and look at my cute baby!” We went home to see Robert, Tim, and Granny Boone. They were so excited. We have cute pictures of them holding you. Dad had cooked Chinese food. Everyone loved you from the beginning! Thanks for being you!! And thanks for being so thoughtful with your Christmas gifts to everyone this year! Love, Mom
I’m really blessed to have such a great family.

Sitting here at the Blurbodoocery, I just realized we’re all nerding it out on 3 different computers.
I’m pretty sure Chuck wishes we would all go upstairs and stop being a bunch of conformists so he could finish his lyrics that describe true pain. Pain inflicted by not being let out for two days in a row and having to coincide with the 2nd cutest baby in the history of the world.
Leta is cute, but I mean have you seen my baby pictures?
