Birthday Celebration

I woke up Saturday with some singing and breakfast in bed by the kids. They like doing that. That was nice. I couldnt sleep in anyway, because apparently I'm the favorite chorister of a kid in the ward (son of OrangeFace), so I had been asked to come to his baptism and lead music. I did, and it was worth it, because I got to see his mom, OrangeFace sing with her sister ScaryEyebrow. She had one eyebrow that would go up and down exactly in sync with the pitch she was trying to hit. Even the modulations were coordinated. It was a wonder.

I didnt need to go to the bathroom during the baptism (at least I didnt have to GET UP and go to the bathroom), because the day before I had received a package of Depends from a dear friend.

We then went to Azuka, the most delicious place to eat in Utah County. The kids were thrilled and amazed at the Flaming Onion Volcano. Oliver pretty much just enjoyed the ginger sauce.

In the evening, we made and ate eggrolls at my mom's. My sister gave me a chicken that poops candy.

Afterwards we went to "I Am Retarded" starring Will Smith. Do not go to this movie, especially if you have read the book.

Sunday we enjoyed the testimony of several, not including Bro. Gelatinous Photographer, who got up in a scottish red and black plaid bagpiper costume and told us that as he watched Hinckley's funeral, he noticed a bagpiper, and the spirit whispered that he should wear his outfit tomorrow to honor him in that way. Did you know that you can honor a spiritual leader if you wear a kilt to church? And you've probably heard of something prompting a cop to put a bulletproof vest on or something similar, but did you know that the spirit sometimes tells you to wear a ridiculous loud scottish costume?



I love how all the kids seem to be in awe of you, then again aren't we all. I wonder if your kilt man is related to a gal who in college went to bare her testmony and sang "I am gonna wash this man right outa my hair" girl, and yes she skitted washing her hair exstatically...Nan do u remember this, Julee was there and so was Trina.

Honor the prophet...yeah right. He just wants an excuse to have an unfurnished basement at church. Nothing like a little breeze on your liahona during church services.

PS. Happy Birthday!

Is Gelatinous Photographer a member of the "Head-injuries anonymous" group who hold reunions on UTA buses? Does he tell one-liner after one-liner while waiting in line at the chapel library after sacrament meeting? I think I want to be involved in this guy's life somehow. Maybe he could be a mentor to me and my family. Check into that for me, Pabs.

Please tell me you didn't actually wear the Depends! Please!

What exactly were you doing anyway when the kids made those faces?

Home slice, I was not doing anything. They're looking at the food maker/knife juggling specialist that comes and cooks at your table.
