oh strahlender morgen

Hello, it is now 6:07 in the post meridian and I just got through watching the movie Charade with my father. I haven’t written for a couple of weeks because I was waiting. I’m still waiting, but I can’t hold back any longer.

Here are the items to note:

- Blind dates are still enemy number one in the Book of Wright. The sure way for me to start to avoid you is by offering to set me up on a blind date. I think I avoid about 98 percent of the people in my parents’ ward nowadays. In fact, the other day I sang in their ward and I left before the closing prayer just so I wouldn’t have to talk to anyone.

- I just read through my opening paragraph and I had at least 75.2 spelling errors that I had to correct. What is wrong with me? I think my students and their writing skills (or lack thereof) are really starting to rub off.

- I’m not going to give out my full Favorite People List, but Ashley Ekins is definitely on there (and yes Ashlee, I realize I spelled your name wrong, but that is to show you that although you might be on my list, that still doesn’t mean you control me).

- One of my students notified me this week that I’m going bald (as if I didn’t already know). That’s one thing I love about high school students: absolutely no tact. And they wonder why they all have self-esteem issues.

- The heating in my sweet minivan is currently out of commission. Do you have any idea how cold it is in the morning driving to work since I have to keep the air-conditioning on so the windows don’t fog up? (and yes I realize that was horrible sentence structure.)

- I had a dance practice on Saturday and to my great relief I do believe that I’ve progressed in my dancer status. I think I’ve gone from “utterly ridiculous and embarrassing” to “needs improvement.” Give me five more years and I’m pretty sure I can reach “bearable” status.

- I’ve had a major break through: I no longer hate Kobe Bryant.

- Have you ever seen Watcher in the Woods? It’s a definite must see. Rent it from your local movie rental place right now. I promise you won’t regret it.

- I’m determined to be kinder to referees from here on out. Rough job that.

And with that, ciao

Hey Ang thanks for the update it has been a while and I always look forward to your blogs. So when Chad came up we were talking about Watcher in the Woods. I would have to agree its a good one. I use to always watch it at sleepovers but I hate the Nerak part. Creepy!!

I am glad to see you still are funny but I must say, Watcher in the Woods is a terrible movie. But you get a point because I must agree with the fact blind dates are usually the worst.

Hey coach! so what changed your opinion about Kobe? just wondering!
and I'm glad you are going to be nicer to referees, because I'm still a little bitter at the one that took away our goal at the timpview game! ok so maybe not, but it was frustrating...

Well, joke's on you Mr. You spelled my name correctly once in that paragraph out of fear, guilt, shame, AND of course, my complete control over you.

Stephen said...

oh skinny. i'm afraid i never want to see you again...

Your blog is the most entertaining one I "stalk." Besides YOUR amusing entries, I always like to read your friends' comments! They're really quite funny!
