I was sitting in the Wilk today and aside from being thoroughly annoyed by a dude wanting to share my table with me (oh my gosh, just put your bag on the table and stop fidgeting! I felt like I was back in Park City yelling at Catherine: "What are you doing right NOW! Right NOW!"). Have you ever heard of "Life, The Universe and Everything"? Maybe you've seen "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," and that would be acceptable. But I'm talking about LTUE, The Science Fiction Convention. I know, wow. They convened today on the third floor of the Wilk. I saw way too many socks and sandles, tube socks/clogs/capris combos, worn-out capes and dragon shirts. But what I HEARD was well worth the astrocities inflicted upon my eyes. Here's a sample:

"And I was like, 'You were dating the humans and we didn't like that, but now you're ONE of them, so we're gonna have to kick you out.'"

"If a tree falls in outer space, does it make a sound?"

"So what's stopping you? Need me to lend you a pen?" [Huge outburst of laughter. I didn't understand the joke.]

"That is the source of her father's insanity. He ACTUALLY BELIEVES he should support his wife and everything. ... Yeah. I know."

"It's hard science fiction. It's plausible. It's all so real! I mean, it could be. I wish it were..."

"Do you know Alien's mother?" "Herendous? Yeah." "She's delusional."

The smell was pretty rank in the back hallways. I had to make an early escape with my battle-ready sword and light saber. I accidentally left my level 4 D&D certificate there. Shnikes.

When science fiction was cool. They must have had to pay those actors a lot.


Oh, one more thing. I was really tired, so as I was listening to the banter of science fiction fanatics, I looked down the hallway and was sure Kevin Jonas of the Jonas Brothers was walking toward me. I was actually pretty excited for a second. Turns out it was just some curly haired kid with a guitar and tambourine. Or maybe he was carrying a backpack and Jamba Juice. I was REALLY tired.
We could be twinners! I have some purple sunglasses just like those. Mmm mmm mmm, how do I get me some of that morsel of a man?

Here's some audio. I'm trying to test this embedding thing. We'll see if it works...

(My interviews with Hunter Schwarz and McKay Coppins)



p.s. pause my music on the right, or else you're getting double audio, and that's not good.

Ok, seriously, literally, for realz (Kelsey) this is an amazing dress. Click on this link http://www.delesieblog.com/blog/ and scroll down a bit. When you see a funky, awesome, even redonkulous dress, that's the one I'm talking about. Add some sleeves and you have my future wedding dress.

I took the Color Code Personality test the other day because my friend asked me what "color" i am. I could've said "non-Hispanic white" but that would've been wrong. I am actually 44% blue and about 33% red. So, I think I am:
Here's what they say about "Blues."
"Blues are motivated by Intimacy. They seek to genuinely connect with others, and need to be understood and appreciated. Everything they do is quality-based. They are loyal friends, employers, and employees. Whatever or whomever they commit to is their sole (and soul) focus. They love to serve and give of themselves freely in order to nurture others' lives. Blues have distinct preferences and have the most controlling personality. Their personal code of ethics is remarkably strong and they expect others to live honest, committed lives as well. They enjoy sharing meaningful moments in conversation as well as paying close attention to special life events (e.g. birthdays and anniversaries). blues are dependable, thoughtful, and analytical; but can also be self-righteous, worry-prone, and moody. They are "sainted pit-bulls" who never let go of something or someone once they are committed. When you deal with a BLUE, be sincere and make a genuine effort to understand and appreciate them.

Not too bad, huh? As in, that describes me pretty well ... or so I think. Here's a basic explanation of "Reds."

"
RED (Motive: POWER)—These are the power wielders. Power: the ability to move from point A to point B and get things done, is what motivates and drives these people. They bring great gifts of vision and leadership and generally are responsible, decisive, proactive and assertive."

BREAKING NEWS: I think the teacher that hates me no longer hates me ... as much. I just thought I'd let you know. One enemy down, several more to go. They won't last long, I am "excessively charming." Word.

Just in case you needed this link, Google listed it on the front page of their "How To" section. Man, I'm glad someone posted it. I've been meaning to do this for a long time now.

How to Strip and Clean a 29mm Pentacon M42 Lens

And here's a quote I thought was completely true, ironically.

"There are only two ways of telling the complete truth--anonymously and posthumously."
--Thomas Sowell

And now, here are a couple photos.

Deon and me outside the Draper Utah Temple.

Me outside the Draper Temple after going to the open house and eating some cookies. Mmm, cookies.

MLK Day -- Pictures

me, McKay, Taylor, Colonel Sanders, Andrew, Hunter and Bowen (at the Colonel's feet). We were looking for the original KFC but all we found was the payroll offices and this statue of the founder. It was pretty cool in and of itself.

The guys and me at KFC (not the original, sadly). Did I feel special being the only girl? You know it. I also felt greasy and bloated. KFC is not the best food in the world. But what can you expect? It was invented by a bigot with a goatie.

This is for you, Cath.

ELIXABETE -- the Basque form of Elizabeth, which means "my God is an oath" or perhaps "my God is abundance"


p.s. Happy Birthday Devon!
DEVON -- a variant form of Devin which is from an Anglicized Irish surname derived from either of the Irish surnames Ó Damháin (from the given name Damhán meaning "fawn") or Ó Dubháin (from the given name Dubhán meaning "little black one").
