Oh Deer!

Monday, Geoffrey and I drove past a cemetry right in the middle of the city that had a couple young deer wandering around inside. I talked him into stopping so I could see them up close. When we pulled up, it didn't even startle them. They both looked up to see who we were then went back to eating the grass. I decided to see how close I could get to them before they ran away, so I got out of the car and started walking towards them. I got within 20 or 30 feet of the deer, once again they didn't seem startled at all, they were just watching me. The deer closest to me took one step forward towards me, it startled me and I took off running back to the car! I'm such a woos! It scared me so bad. I wasn't expecting to get very close to it and I definately didn't think it would walk towards me! (The whole time my husband was sitting in the car laughing at me!)

After our fun in the cemetry we headed downtown to see the Joseph Smith movie at temple square. Before the movie started we were trying to get a couple of pictures of the two of us together with the temple behind us. Our camera doesn't work very well and the pictures were coming out dark and weird. A couple of elders that were walking by stopped to help. He had us take our memory card out of our camera and he put it in his camera to take the picture (I had no idea you could switch memory cards between cameras). Thank Goodness for Elders! The picture he took made the temple look beautiful, but we came out blurry! So both of them didn't turn out. Oh well. maybe next time.

MIdnight Sun

Those of you who love the twilight books will appreciate this. Our Cousin Alex wrote it. (He has never read the books)

Twas Twilight, and the New Moon had been Eclipsed by a Breaking Dawn
As glimpsed by a non-reading husband

Isabella Swan packed her things and moved from Phoenix to Forks,
Where she met Vampires and werewolves and all kinds of strange sorts.

Edward is a strapping gentleman and a blood thirsty fella
And if he had a heart at all it would only beat for Bella.

In Short: He's quite a guy, but he'd suck her dry.

And so back and forth the romance teeters
between friendship, love, and the desire to eat her.

Yet they overcome temptation to become a lawfully-wed, baby-making vampire literary sensation.

Three cheers for Bella!

And for Edward three more!

poop on Jacob Black (at least till book four!)

So, in conclusion, I've renamed my poem about a tale of passion, blood, and glory:

To Knife, or to Spoon: A Forks love story

I laughed and laughed the first time I read this. Also, for those of you that don't know, Stephanie Meyer was going to write another book called Midnight Sun. (It's supposed to be about Edward) Someone posted part of her manuscript online without permission so she has stopped working on it indefinately. But... She has posted the unfinished manuscript on her website for everyone to read!

New, New, New

Wow! We have had a busy couple of weeks. In the past two weeks we have both started new jobs, we live in a new apartment (new to us...but pretty old), and Geoffrey has started new classes at school. Geoffrey's new job is at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, as a messenger. He is going to spend his days valet parking, driving abulences between hospitals, driving shuttles, runing errands, and occasionally a trip to the morgue! He is very excited and officially starts on Monday. He teases that he is never going to leave this corner of valley. He can get to work, school and home on the University shuttles. My new job is at Gardner Village in the Country Furniture Store. (THANK YOU ASHLEY!!) I am a furniture and rug salesperson. I absolutely love the store, it's one of my very favorite. The hardest part for me is going to be not spending all of my paycheck at the store. So far we are loving our apartment. We bought a couch/living room set this weekend at RC Willey, and it's helping it feel more "homey" here. Here are some pictures:

Now we just need to decorate!
