post dentist smile

After a visit to the dentist, I discovered I had a... cavity *insert evil music here*(Curse you holiday sweets)
So, today, I had to get a filling (bad) but I got laughing gas (good). I'd like to thank laughing gas for getting me through the horrible process of a filling. 
Also, I'd like to thank that shot for numbing half my face for the entire day. Don't worry, I took a picture
Check out that winning smile. 
On the plus side, with all my muscles numb half my face looked ten years younger (forget Botox). If you did the math, half of my face looked like an 11 year old me. Believe it.

Just so everyone knows, my bffae (best friend forever and ever) was married!!!
Looking possessed is the hot new thing this of 2011, didn't you know?

As this semester ends...

I have been pretending that the break has already started.... which it has NOT.... which means I'm going to suffer tomorrow when everything is due for finals.

For me, finals week consists of an absurd number of hours of sleep, watching all those movies I haven't had time to this semester (watched Casablanca for the first time yesterday), making cinnamon rolls, going to the gym, facebooking, etc. The one thing it is lacking is studying. I tried to study this morning, and somehow I ended up here.

In other news, yesterday I had a mad craving for gumbo after my friend told me he was at the Blue Bayou in Disneyland. After a mad search, my father discovered that Zupas has a gumbo. So, we had a little family dinner there. The gumbo was disappointing, but the company was great. :)

P.S. I think Utah took my letter seriously, because there is a nice layer of sparkling snow outside. We're all good now Utah, we're all good.

Christmas Program

As you should know, I love singing probably more than anything else in this world (sorry family). So, I was pretty excited for the Christmas Program today, where my ward choir performed two numbers, and I performed a duet. Somehow, nothing went as planned.

First off, yesterday, I had planned on being home around 7 and texting everyone and telling them to be there for practice at 9:30, but I didn't get back until 8.  (Don't worry, someone else sent the text)

Then last night, we change the song we're singing for our duet, and the new song is fantastic, and we totally kicked butt. I was a little nervous about not having a lot of time to practice, but I'd live.

This morning, I slept in a little, which means we didn't get extra time to practice.
Then, I burned the cinnamon rolls I had made for choir.
Then, our sweet sweet pianist slept through her alarm, because she was working on one of the other million things she has to do. So we didn't get as much time to practice with her.
Then, we as the meeting was starting I realized I FORGOT THE MUSIC for the choir, sO I ran back and got it. (the choir sounded great, bless your hearts guys)
Then, while J and I were singing out duet I skipped a line, and got really confused on where we were. He so kindly pointed to the right place, but I was so frazzled I never really composed myself again.

But it was fun. I'm glad it happened. and I felt cuteI just tried to post a picture of my outfit that I ... Not only did I wear blue and black, but I tied it all together with a matching brown belt that didn't match my shoes. Clint and Stacy would be livid.

I wrote too much with out a picture to rest your tired eyes... my bad

I have a skinny uncle

So, my uncle ran a 5k a little while ago, and he is looking fit and stuff and it motivated me to run a 5k. I decided I shall run it in February.

Now, I could run speed walk a 5k easily, but my goal is to have the speed of a normal 20 year old human, not that of a three legged poodle.

So, I woke up at the crack of dawn this morning (noon) and got over to the the gym to get some running in. It was terrible. As a reward for my motivation to get in running shape, my head phones severely shocked my right ear every five minutes or so. I screamed every time, which made everyone look at me as I shuffled at a measly 4.8 miles an hour. It was a little embarrassing. But damn you headphones, you will NOT keep me down! 

Brian, my dear uncle, you better watch your back, because I'm TOTALLY gonna outrun you.
Me = 4, uncle = 485

If I don't make a gingerbread house REALLY soon...

So, if you can recall, I missed out on all fun Halloween activities including pumpkin carving, and haunted houses. I had planned on redeeming my love of the holidays through Christmas. So far this is a bust.

(FYI. I just tried to spell love "lofe" and for about one minute I couldn't figure out why the red underline was there... yeah, I really excelled in 3rd grade)


I'd like to have a moment and talk to Utah alone

Dear Utah
 Best Snow on Earth? That's your catch phrase? Then where the heck is my winter wonderland? I haven't even pulled out my winter coat. I only had a light jacket on today, and there were a few moments where I was too hot. Anyhow, Utah, if you don't shape up real soon, I'm moving somewhere that actually sticks to it's state motto, like Michigan "If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you" How true, since Michigan is truly a pennisula (On another note, really Michigan? that's your motto? I mean New Hampshire is "Live free or die")
 Get on it Utah. It's time I put my corncob pipe, buttons, and coals to good use.
Sincerely,
Bri
Actually, while I was googling state mottos I came across Utah's real motto which is "Industry." Really? That's not a motto, that's a word.


AND on another note, a dear friend introduced me to a website that will now take up all my free time www.dearblankpleaseblank.com for example:


Dear Diets,
Hahahahahaha!

Oh What a Night

Finals are some crazy stuff... I cannot believe how busy this weekend was! Or... is, I guess it's not over

Last night we had a high school girl friend sleepover for Jo's bridal shower.... I had hoped I'd never say this, but it really made me miss high school. We ate pizza and candy, gossiped, and talked about boys (well... they mostly talked about their husbands, and I talked about Jake Gyllenhaal). Seriously, I forgot how hilarious those girls are, I will never make new friends like that.
Isn't this obnoxious? I googled "besties" because I felt it was necessary to add a picture. Then I saw this, and I hated it. So I wanted to show all of you. 

Today EVERYONE in the Media Arts program decided to film their final projects... It was pure chaos. I started out as craft services, followed by work flow (ish), then designated driver, then into an actor (I played a homeless person wearing a corduroy dress next to a fire in a garbage can. Needless to say, it was a dream come true.) While on set for the first film of the day, I snapped a lil picture.
If that isn't legit, I don't know what it. PS. our little actor there is in 127 hours. his face appears on screen for five seconds. Guys, I've reached the big time.
