Wha Happen???

I know that I disappeared from the blogosphere for quite a moment but it was necessary. There was too much crap going on. Plus how can you make a triumphant return if you never leave? Exactly. So here is (in a very short form) a recap of the last few months:

First, my incredibly loud and fabulous grandmother lost her fight with lung cancer. She was so great. I wish everyone could have met her. So I flew home to California for a few days. Little did I know that exactly a month later (to the day - hence the word exactly) my grandfather on the other side of my family passed away from being old. He was the most amazing man and chef. You'd think that most pasta is the same but being Italian really gave him the advantage of making everything taste wonderful and magical and fabulous. Plus he was hysterical. So that was my second trip to California.

Me and Taylor

Luckily my third trip to California was to go to Disneyland... so it made Cali seem fun and bright again. We went to celebrate my 31st birthday, Meghann's 19th and Lindsay's 28th. Unfortunately Taylor's is in December but she got to come with us anyway. Disneyland was just as fun as I always remembered.

Me and Lindsay... I totally won!

Then this happened on the 23rd of May and I haven't been able to work since!

The site of the carnage. Damn you foursquare! I will hopefully be heading back to work at the very end of July or beginning of August.

While Michele and I waited in the emergency room at the hospital we decided to snap some pictures. She is the one wearing sandals.

After the fiberglass splints I was upgraded to two walking boots and a wheelchair. I have wheelchair pics too but I just can't find them.

But most of the time I just sat around and looked at my bruises. Even my toes bruised and I damaged the nerves to my toes so sometime my 2nd, 3rd and 4th toes fall asleep for no reason - pretty cool.

So there you have it... the last four months of my life. Huh, not bad.

Can't Live Without This

I know that this isn't a real post but this is what makes me happy. Everyone should love this song and love Leslie Hall. I really want this as my ringtone. It brings a smile to my face and may even get me through my next round of bereavement days. I'll be in California again next week for yet another grandparent funeral. Awesome. Til then I'm going to listen to Tight Pants/ Body Rolls on repeat until I can't stand it. This is the real video and that is what she looks like. Kind of really disturbing and leaves nothing to the imagination. Love it!

I Cried Tears of Laughter

I really love the music. I think it added just the right touch.

The Awful Truth

You really want to know what I've been up to for the last few months? Most recently I sat through an entire half hour of this crap for work (my girls were so good). It's called Experimental Music. It's weird, creepy, sounds like a horror movie and creepiest when being played and paired with a dramatic interpretation of some crazy poem. It was all I could do not to laugh out loud and even then a few not so lady like snorts escaped. Here's a tip - let the video load and then cue it up somewhere in the middle. It will make it less likely that you will have to kill yourself after hearing it. First it was a fifteen minute solo of this guy (Malcom Goldstein) and then some BYU people joined in the chaos. Things I saw that were experimental:

1. guitar being strummed with an envelope
2. violin being played with one of those clear projector plastic page things
3. a golf ball being rolled around in a glass jar on the floor
4. someone laying (lying?) in a piano to pluck the strings
5. the bow of a violin being scraped on the music stand
6. a tuba that would play a really loud note every now and then just to scare me
7. general spastic movements (I like to call them seizures) while playing an instrument
8. sheet music with big blobs and shapes on them instead of notes.

Thank you mindless job, thank you.

Here's some sheet music:

And this too!

My life is so boring.

I wish that I had something magical and inspirational to tell you all. I mean after a month and a half of not updating this blog bloggy blog - I've still got nothing. So let's go with things that I've learned from some "special" friends at work (all events are from the last week of my life).

1. Don't cheek your meds.
2. Don't cheek your meds and then give them to others so they can OD on them, it is bad.
3. Don't be evil and lie to people who are trying to help you - it only pisses them off.
4. Don't call people mom when they are not your mom - it only pisses them off.
5. Do win soccer and softball tournament when you don't deserve it because you are cheeking your meds.
6. Do let people pull you off of the person you are beating up.
7. Don't knee people in the head as they are pulling you off of the person you are beating up.
8. Do put on sunscreen so that you don't get second degree burns on you body.
9. Do be sneaky so that when you are caught - it is all the sweeter for others.
10. Do go on vacation when things are getting hard - in fact run to the nearest nerd convention.

There you have it - I have to bestest mostest educationalistic job in the world. I will let you know how Comic-con goes!
