weekend miscellany

My weekend in review:
  • I was reunited with my Chicago Manual of Style. We were meant to be. Thanks ELang 410 for giving me another chance with my one true love: commas.
  • I started reading Eats, Shoots & Leaves for the first time (if you can believe I haven't read it yet--I mean, it's a whole book dedicated to punctuation). Favorite phrases and clauses include "satanic sprinkling of redundant apostrophes" and "anger [over egregious punctuation errors] gives way to a righteous urge to perpetrate an act of criminal damage with the aid of a permanent marker."
  • The fridge froze at least three of my eggs. Frozen eggs=weird, no?
  • I watched the new episode of "Monk" at Brooke's after we watched a whole disc of season one at my apartment. Picture freezer!! Picture go regular!!
  • I went to my first ever BYU dance. Granted, it was only for half an hour, but I met up with my friend Brennen there and we had fun partying it up.

  • Emily hiked the Y: this is a picture of the Y when Emily was on it. Kudos, Em!
  • I helped Katie purge her closet. Sometimes you just need someone to tell you to throw out stuff. I learned that from Mom.
  • Lunch at Katelyn's on Saturday: Kraft Mac 'n' Cheese, just like the old days.
  • Emily came over Saturday night and we went to Smith's and watched "Sliding Doors" afterward.
  • Saturday, there was a banana pancake party at Katelyn's, complete with "Seinfeld."
  • We had regional conference today: President Uchtdorf and President Packer spoke, and it was stellar.
  • There was a CES fireside tonight with Elder Holland, and it was beyond incredible. It's like he knows me or something. He talked all about the lessons we learn from Joseph Smith's stint in Liberty Jail. It was so personal and touching.
  • I watched a few episodes of "Alias" online. I'm a huge fan. Because, you know, it's not like I don't need another TV show to like. Good grief.
  • And probably my favorite highlight from the weekend: B-Money. He's a salesman who carries t-shirts he designs himself around in a large duffel and tries to sell them to students. He's especially popular among the 700 East crowd. One of Katelyn's friends invited B-Money to crash the banana pancake party, and so for the first half hour, B-Money was trying to bargain with us on t-shirts (which have his face on them, no joke). He also makes his own hip-hop CDs and was selling them for $7. (The CDs were called "Rag$ to Riche$.") If only I had cash on me. He just hung out for a while, and then went back to pounding the pavement. I wish you all the luck in the world, B-Money.
And now I get to start another week. Hopefully I can find a good school groove: I'm finding motivation hard to come by. Maybe if I buy a B-Money shirt. . . .

Edit: Google "B-Money" on GoogleVideo and enjoy.

T-shirts with his picture on them? For real? Is he creepy, or just funny? I can't tell for sure. When I first saw the photo in your post I thought you were continuing in a television vein with a segue from "Alias" to "Prison Break."

Melissa said the CES fireside with President Holland was really good--maybe I can find a re-broadcast on BYU TV.

I wish I had seen the fireside, too! I love President Holland.

I have been wanting to read Eats, Shoots & Leaves forever. I'll be eagerly awaiting your review.

I bet Katie was wishing you were there to help her purge her closet BEFORE moving in!

Yes, frozen eggs are weird. Is your temp turned too high?

If only you too were given the opportunity to become a B-Money Honey. I guess your just not up to B-money's standards.

I've heard about B-Money! Is he as good as Aicha?

Good luck this week! I'm excited to see you later at work and spend more time with you off and on campus.

That t-shirt dude sounds crazy.
That's awesome that you took a picture of the Y with Emily on it.
It's so cool that Emily lives here now so you can hang out.

I haven't ever read Easts, Shoots & Leaves either, but really should. Yet I fear I'm breaking all kinds of rules due to me typing the way I talk.

I thought the new episode of Monk was amusing, particularly the part you quoted here. I also enjoyed the Sarah Silverman cameo and the other OCD patient guy.

I LOVE Sliding Doors!
