What I've Learned

Hello. I will write.

What I learned from various sources over the last couple of months:

. . . from Gilmore Girls—Smooth guys are morons (examples: Jess, Dean, Max, Christopher, etc.) whereas awkward guys are awesome (examples: Luke, Zach, Kirk, Marty, yes, especially Marty).

. . . from The Fox and the Hound—Don’t become friends with dogs.

. . . from Jeopardy—I am not smart. But a lot of people on Jeopardy aren’t particularly smart either. In fact it’s sometimes kind of embarrassing.

. . . from We Bought a Zoo—Even movies with ridiculous names can be good.

. . . from the Republican Primaries—Stay away from Tea Partyists. Anyone who backs the Newt can’t be trusted.

. . . from the Goshe—Drinkable water is highly overrated.

. . . from the NFL—Make sure you have a good field goal kicker. They’re pretty useless for 99 percent of the game, but that one percent, boy is it important.

. . . from the Mrs.—The key to happiness is learning to do the dishes.

. . . from A Farewell to Arms—Don’t ever read books by Ernest Hemingway. Ever. Unless you want to be depressed out of your mind.

. . . from the NBA—People are crazy. Don’t complain about people making a lot of money when you’re the one giving them the money.

. . . from coaching—Winning isn’t nearly as exciting as losing is painful.

. . . from living in Utah—Always have two things in your car: a winter coat and suntan lotion.

And that’s all.

Monday Madness

Hello. I have a goal. Write more often. I will.

- Currently I’m watching the Republican Presidential Candidates Debate. Interesting. I like Santorum

- I was just watching The Fox and the Hound. I find that movie interesting.

- I really wish that there were more Harry Potter movies/books. I miss them all, especially Snape and Dumbledore.

- Here’s my rating of prominent males on Gilmore Girls (who knows if the spelling right).
1. Luke
2. Zack
3. Kurt
4. Everybody else except . . .
104. Dean
105. Jess

- By the way, Gilmore Girls is an interesting show. Not sure what I think about it yet.

- Sometimes I think it’s crazy that I’m a step dad. Who’d of thunk (apparently according to my spell check “thunk” isn’t a word, which just goes to show that nobody consulted anybody in Goshen when they created these spell check thingers).

- I should go to bed. It’s 11:00 p.m. and all I’m doing is listening to Newt Gingrich talk. Why did I stop watching The Fox and the Hound? I just don’t understand myself.

- I’m going to watch Anderson Cooper 360.

- But before I do, let me just say that I think this is the worst NFL season in my lifetime. I cried last night when the Niners and the Ravens lost (well, not really, but almost, and I’m pretty sure my brother Spencer did).

And that's all

Dear People,

Here are my thoughts:

1. If Newt Gingrich becomes the President of the United States I’m moving to Africa.

2. I’m still not sure I want Romney to win the nomination. I don’t know if I could handle the pressure of my religion being judged by just one person in such a highly scrutinized position (if that makes sense, which it probably doesn’t).

3. Conclusion: I’m voting for Ron Paul.

4. But to more important things, I really, really want the 49ers or the Ravens to win the Super Bowl. If it’s the Patriots or Giants, I’m moving to Africa.
