Budding Technophile

Sarah's Valentine Ensemble

 Because she hasn't been on the blog enough lately. Posted by Picasa

It was a busy day

 All the pictures got scrolled down. I think this is adorable. Posted by Picasa


Melissa...you really liked Elizabethtown five-stars worth? Also, is Dark Water worth watching? And let me know what you think of Proof. Umm. Yes. That is all.

Go for it Holly

Horatio says: "Yes... I would date your sister (I'm always up for a random first date). She would have to contact me directly... since... I don't know who you really are."

Want that I should set you up? :P

I just saw Woot today. Not that I want golf clubs or whatever they have on at the moment, but it's pretty funny. Read the FAQ's. Here's an exerpt:

Why do you keep putting LAUNCH EVENT in all caps?
To fully convey its majesty.
Maybe I'll just wait until this item becomes more widely available, so I know what other users think of it.
If that's how you want to live your life, sure. Fine. There are those who would say that your type will inherit the earth. Until then, though, the rest of us will have all the coolest gizmos.

Harry Potter Tidbit

JKR's answer to the FAQ Poll on her website:

What happens to a secret when the Secret-Keeper dies?

I was surprised that this question won, because it is not the one that I'd have voted for… but hey, if this is what you want to know, this is what you want to know!

When a Secret-Keeper dies, their secret dies with them, or, to put it another way, the status of their secret will remain as it was at the moment of their death. Everybody in whom they confided will continue to know the hidden information, but nobody else.

Just in case you have forgotten exactly how the Fidelius Charm works, it is

"an immensely complex spell involving the magical concealment of a secret inside a single, living soul. The information is hidden inside the chosen person, or Secret-Keeper, and is henceforth impossible to find -- unless, of course, the Secret-Keeper chooses to divulge it" (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban)

In other words, a secret (eg, the location of a family in hiding, like the Potters) is enchanted so that it is protected by a single Keeper (in our example, Peter Pettigrew, a.k.a. Wormtail). Thenceforth nobody else – not even the subjects of the secret themselves – can divulge the secret. Even if one of the Potters had been captured, force fed Veritaserum or placed under the Imperius Curse, they would not have been able to give away the whereabouts of the other two. The only people who ever knew their precise location were those whom Wormtail had told directly, but none of them would have been able to pass on the information.

My Neighbors

Sarah and I have an apartment too. And we have neighbors. But they always glare at us when they see us. And they steal our newspaper if we don't get up early enough. And they probably broke the light in the walkway to our apartment. And we are pretty sure they are also responsible for global warming. Because that is just the kind of thing mean neighbors do.

The New Me

I'm like an exercising nut! I bought myself some sporty clothes! I went to the clubhouse three times last week! I have a prepaid account for Kid's Time! I took the kids for a 1 1/2 hour walk last Friday! I am addicted to exclaimation points!

How do you think I'd look with a high ponytail? And blonde hair? ;)

Another entry from my book.

Ayn Rand:

Ayn Rand seems so mysterious, privy, snobby - in a cool way. I'm pretty sure it's the y.

How Long Will it Take BYU to kick Holly out of the Dorm?

Okay so we are taking bets on how long it will take BYU to kick Holly right out on her ear. Dad forgot to make her dorm payment and even though I sent her an urgent email to let us know the number to call and her student number she has been slow in getting back to me. So the clock is ticking! Anyone want to make a guess?

I don't want to go to class. Any suggestions?

Stupid Slow Driver

Apparently I'm phenomenal

Someone forwarded me this game.

The object of the game is to move the RED block around without getting
hit by the BLUE blocks or touching the BLACK walls.

If you can go longer than 18 seconds you are phenomenal.

It has been said that the US Air Force uses this for fighter pilots.
They are expected to go for at least 2 minutes.

So far 24.953 is the highest I've gotten. (It gets faster the longer you go.) Anyway. Kind of fun.

It takes all kinds

I'm a thoughtful observer, what are you?

Happy Half-Birthday to me!

I bought myself The Metropolitan Bakery Cookbook: Artisan Breads, Pastries, and Desserts for only $9, so I'm excited. I expect my gifts to arrive shortly. Problems with the mail service is not an acceptable excuse.

I'm getting one.

Who wants to get one with me?
Note: If you go to some devil school, you might not know that Cecil Samuleson is BYU's president.
