Well, I took my allergy medication HOURS ago...and this nose thing isn't going away. You know what that means?

Dang it.

I made it SO long without a cold.

Think I am going to take a very hot shower tonight to see if I can't kill it. It will at least make me feel better. And I will take a very large vitamin.

Ah well, all good things must come to an end. Hopefully this is a quickie cold. Hopefully. My immune system hasn't been tested in quite a while, so we shall see.

A Visit

Discovered that a friend of mine was within driving distance from me! She said she hadn't let me know that she was here because she didn't have a car.

Now people, if you really know me, someone not having a car won't keep me from seeing them as long as they are a reasonable distance away and I can afford the trip.

I can TOTALLY handle Salt Lake City right now, any day of the week.

So I drove up, we walked around, saw Churchy things, ate Thai food, and then I drove her back to her peeps place.

I call that a good day.

I must be one of a kind. I know a lot people who won't bother with a trip because it's just too much of a hassle. Time constraints, money constraints, etc.

Me? I will do whatever it takes to see someone I care about...within reason. Sometimes without reason. I love to travel, so that's a plus, and I think seeing a friend and reconnecting is worth more than the gas and time that the trip took out of my life.

Wish there was a job that involved traveling and hanging out with friends all the time. I would have a pretty joyful life experience if there were such a thing.

So There Was This Guy...

I can't tell you how many guys I have said this about in the last few months. There was a guy, small crush ensued, and then he slipped through the cracks.

For example: super hot guy comes in assisting a patient. The patient did not want to get her eyes checked. Super hot guy says, 'here, hold my hand, and I'll help you'. She says 'no'. He replies 'ha, you and every girl in Utah Valley'. It took a lot to not put my hand in his, but since that would have been labelled as super creepy, I held back. And no witty comment from me, just quick giggle and then sent them on their way. Gah!

Or nerdy hot guy (there is a difference between nerdy hot and super hot) who apparently is a member of my ward but no longer attends my ward regularly. We have one amazing conversation and then he pretends I don't exist...this MAY have something to do with a very pretty girl who looks a lot like Idina Menzel but more like another actress who I just can't pinpoint her name who also looks like Idina who he seemed to be acting rather friendly with at institute the last couple of nights.

The winner of the 'So There Was This Guy' awards goes to one particular guy. My latest one in fact. Over 6 feet tall. Red head. Done with school. Year older than me. Witty. Thankfully not gay for the sake of my crush. Charming. Quite handsome. Not too skinny, not too pudgy. NICE arms. AND apparently his name appears on the credits of the last two Harry Potter films. So, successful.

Dadblasted guy lives in LONDON. As in ENGLAND. Great Britain. The Mother Land.

He was only here on vacation. And to torment my daydreams.

Can't. Catch. A. Break.

To make the matters of 'So There Was This Guy' even better, I had this amazingly vivid and somewhat plausible dream about a guy. Who? My ex-fiance. Named Jerkface. Who is very married last I heard. Why couldn't it be the red headed guy?

In other news, I am seriously thinking about going to London for the Olympics next year.

What? I have a friend who is very likely competing in them. Former roommate in fact. Good enough reason to just show up...right?

I would just like to announce that Elizabeth now has the internet at home.

For a couple of months.

Expect big things.
