June 2010 Review

Jul 1, 2010 by Jared Smith

It’s been a while since I posted – still getting over the lost shrimp, I guess. So here’s a quick update on what’s been happening lately:

  • We went on a handcart trek. It was fun, exhausting, and uplifting. My 4 X great grandfather died at Martin’s Cove. Sad. It was in the middle of Wyoming – a very long drive. In 150 years, my ancestors will probably honor me by riding on a bus for 7 hours.
  • The Supreme Court ruled that white AND black men in Chicago can own guns and Senator Robert Byrd kicked the bucket on the same day. Coincidence?
  • I just got back from my 7th trip to Oklahoma. They really like all-you-can-eat buffets there.
  • Abbie and I have earned 220 of the 241 stars in Super Mario Galaxy 2. I haz mad Nintendo skillz.
  • I might go to India and Singapore later this year. Cool, except for the 52 hours it takes to get there and back part.
  • If you fly from Japan to Utah, you arrive an hour before you leave.
  • My travel agent forgot to pay for my Oklahoma plane ticket. I learned this at the airport. The lady at the ticket counter wanted $1420 to fly there that night. I replied, “I said Oklahoma, not Okinawa.” She didn’t find it funny. I stayed in West Valley City that night.
  • The La Quinta Inn in West Valley City reeks of marijuana smoke. At first this totally bugged me, but after a while I was cool with it.
  • A bunch of hoodlums made a mess of Toronto while protesting the G20 summit. Good thing us ‘right wing nut jobs’ don’t protest it or we’d have taken over Canada.
  • My sister found a spot between her toes. It was cancer. They cut it all out. I found a spot too. I got to wear sexy paper underwear at the doctor’s office. They cut the spot off. I find out soon if it’s cancer too. Stupid toes!
  • iPhone 4. I have one.
  • Mary spent a week at girls camp. I watched the kids. They really missed their mother even though we ate at McDonalds.
  • My son just said, “I want nunchuk skills.” We’ll work on him not peeing on the bathroom floor first.

  2. so we want to see pictures of everything. the martins cove trip, girls camp, the mole, the gut from the all-you-can-eat buffets, the nunchuk skills, and maybe somebody would want to see a private blog post of the sexy paper underwear….not me but maybe somebody else.
