Good Sabbath

Well, it’s almost been a whole two weeks since my last posting. I hope you all have enjoyed the slight reprieve from the madness. There’s just been so much to write I had to wait until I had enough time to gather my thoughts and figure out what items were really important enough to put on this here web log.

- First off, this English person I once met named Ruth Sharman Hall has severely reprimanded me for my constant bemoaning of my lack of social skills. Since English people should always be obeyed, my goal: Not to complain for the whole rest of 2008.

- Okay, could somebody please tell me what “lol” means? People use it all the time in all kinds of different places and I, for the very life of me, cannot figure out why. Advise.

- Concerning the recent presidential election (we’re going to have a new president, if you didn’t know), I’m really not too displeased with the choice of Brother Obama. I don’t know too much about his policies (another goal is to read a couple of books about him before January, if you have any suggestions let me know) but I think he’s a swell fellow (course, I could be wrong about that). Really, I think he’ll do a fine job. Which is in stark opposition to the many around these parts who think he’s the devil.

- So, I’m thinking about using Rogain. What do you say?

- Don’t worry, don’t worry, my Spanish Fork City Recreation League soccer team did end up winning the tournament championship. It’s good to see the Wright boys, after a couple years absence, ascend once again to the top of the soccer scene here in the Salem/Spanish Fork area. If you want a signed picture, just send me your address with $50.


(This is the championship team, minus Big D, right after our glory. Oh yeah, did I mention I scored the game winning goal. That's right.)


- I love teachifying. I love it. I have my bad days when I wonder if anybody ever listens to me (they probably don’t), but all in all, it’s a great job. I’d highly recommend it to anybody (as long as you don‘t hate teenagers).

- And finally, I’ve decided that janitors, when they die, are going straight to heaven. Really. I’m pretty sure there aren’t better people in the whole world.

Sincerely,
The Skin

OK, lol means laugh out loud, and I personally, have never used it in my life until right now.

They sell Rogaine at Costco if your interested.

Congrats with your soccer team.

My roommate was your substitute for your class on Friday. Imagine that.

Ericson Fam said...

Ang are you for reals about lol!! I have used that lingo since like third grade. No really its because I'm in young womens they keep me updated on all the text lingo. I see Rachel has helped you out on that one. Hope you have a fabulous day!!

Katelyn said...

Hey coach! Congrats on your win! Thats cool that you scored the winning goal!!! I'm going to score a goal next year!!!

Chersten said...

Agree wholeheartedly about the janitor comment. Jared's first rule of teaching is make friends with the janitors and the lunch ladies. They are the ones truly in charge.

Ashley said...

I don't know what else to add; it's all been said already! Except that your Obama comment was slightly disturbing to me for various reasons.

Rodney said...

the janitor at my school always swore at my kids...

Stephen Hussein Frandsen said...

sorry. that was stephen. not rodney.

I'm old. I thought lol meant lots of love... but I'm not a texter either. I was a janitor at Logan High my sophomore year of college... yes, we are going straight to heaven... boys bathroom = GROSS! There really isn't a powerful enough word in all the english language to describe it. I try to forget, but look, 7 or 8 years later it still haunts me. ps my lil sis tracy says she sees you at the singles ward.

Skinny said...

and i reply:

ladies: i know what "lol" means i just don't know what it really means.

ashlee: my obama statement was disturbing? but why?

katelyn: hopefully it's more than just one goal.

stephen: the kids at your school are probably going to outer darkness, so it's alright to swear at them.

christa: yeah, i see your sister. which reminds me, you never told me you had a sister that has the same name as me.

The Montaño’s said...

My sis' name is Tracy Rice, how is that the same as Andrew Wright? What am I missing? Otherwise, I would have told you. Definately! O, and be nice to her, she's fragile.

and, if you would drink that green stuff...and take your fish oils, you wouldn't have to be concerned with such things as Rogaine.
