No Outside Food Allowed.

While I was in Rexburg this summer, I found myself with some free time while waiting for the friend I was staying with to return from their cabin.

I got an oil change since I had driven approximately 7000 kilometers in the last 30 days. I had stopped at all my favorite places. Attended the temple. Visited other friends.

What could I do for the next 5 hours?

Well I had 2 free movie passes that expired in 3 days. So I went to see the X-Files movie. I was an X-Files fan back in the day. I was starving though. And Craigo's was right across the street. So I ordered a Hawaiian Pizza Bomb to go. I forgot how huge the large ones were until I got to my car and opened up the box. I shoved it into my purse and went to see X- Files.

Much to my surprise I was the only one in the theater. (Less then 10 minutes before it was to start). I sat in the very last row- thinking that if someone else did come, I could eat my Pizza Bomb behind them alot easier than in front of them. About 5 minutes after the movie started 3 girls walked in and sat near the front. I yelped and yeeed a few times at the appropriate places. I felt like I was home alone watching it and I talk to the TV and the characters when I am alone. When the movie ended the 3 girls looked back. To see the freaky yelping girl I am sure. This is what was left of my PB.

Mmmm. Looking at this picture makes me want another one.

Well I had 2 more hours until my friend would be home and one more movie ticket.

So I quickly went to DQ the across the street and got a Blizzard-of-the-month which just happened to be my favorite. Oreo. I had to get one there because the BotM there are actually cheaper. Is it like that at your local DQ?

I shoved it into my purse and went to see Wall-E. The fact that it was free and I had a Blizzard made it all the more enjoyable. And I wasn't alone in the theater.

My summer sneaking adventures reminded me of my movie going days in high school. My best friend and I would go see movies at the dollar theater ALL THE TIME. They sold pickles at the consession and we always talked about how funny that was and how much we wanted one as we both loved pickles. But we were cheap. So one time we took a trip to my parents amazing food storage. Got a jar of pickles. I somehow smuggled them in by putting the jar next to my tummy so I looked pregnant. ha ha. I think I ate one pickle. Then fell asleep (which I NEVER do during movies but think I just got home from Girl's Camp that afternoon). When I woke up, he had eaten the entire jar of pickles.

Another time my friends and I went to the grocery store before heading to the movies. I was craving carrots. So I bought a bag of mini carrots. Snuck them in. And ate them during the movie. How fun that must have been for the movie goers around me.

What have you snuck into a movie theater before?

If nothing- what have you always wanted to sneak into a movie theater?

Rainy Days and Fridays Always Get Me Down.

I am a little sad today. Not too sure why.

Maybe because:

*I don't have a job

*I live with my parents

*My cell phone doesn't work anymore so IF my American friends wanted to call me, they couldn't
*The majority of my friends live in another country

*I don't have a bedroom (long story)

*I am still living out of my suitcase (because I don't have a bedroom)

*All that I own is in boxes in my parents garage

*Target is too far away

*My ward is full of strangers (except for the one girl I used to babysit and the other nice girl who apparently is always out of town)

I will now try to think of happy thoughts:

*I can see my nieces and nephews whenever I want to

*My Mom makes really good food

*My Dad makes the best popcorn. And knows exactly when I am craving some.

*I can pretty much sleep until I wake up

*The Olympics are fabulous

*Canada is finally winning medals

*I have a job. I know I said above that I don't have one. But I do. Just not a REAL job-which is what I really want. Only a part-time one. And I will spend all the money I make there on gas and the product I am selling. The store is brand new to Canada and doesn't even open until September 15th. So I remain moneyless until at least the end of September. Where is this job you ask? Why Bath & Body Works, of course! (way to guess Amanda!) First items on my shopping list are:

Maybe if I smell better someone might sit by me at church.

Nothing better than smelling like a pineapple after washing your hands.

I have never tried this before but it sounds delightful.

Maybe if my lips and breath smell better someone might kiss me at church. Okay. After church. I mean on Monday. Sunday is my day of rest. :)

Gotta go. My Dad just made some popcorn and it smells divine.

Are you smarter than a customer service rep?

I called my credit card company to change my address. This is the conversation I had with the wonderful girl that answered. Let's call her Mitzy. Ditzy Mitzy.

me: I would like to change my address.
dm: What's your new zip code.
me: Well, it's in Canada so it's a postal code.
dm: Isn't Canada a part of the United States?
me: Ummm.... no it is a separate county.
dm: oh.

I didn't know people like that really existed. I guess in the United States, they do. :)

Enjoy this video. It is a little fuzzy and 7 minutes long but it really highlights the intelligence of Americans.

Giving to charity never tasted so good.

The only thing better than eating ice cream FOR children is eating ice cream WITH cute children and their cute Mom.

The results are in.

Well not really. The final results will be in on Thursday.

I attended my first group interview. I was actually late. I realize that is not a good thing to be for a job interview. I considered turning around and going home. But I drove over 30 minutes to get there. And I really didn't have anything to lose. This job isn't my life's ambition. It would mostly be just for fun.

They were meeting at Starbucks and then were going to head to the conference room. That is all I knew. So I asked a Starbucks worker if she knew where the conference room was. She said "perhaps in the hotel down the hall." I then went to the hotel and found the conference room. They said I won points for finding them.

If I could have voted people out of the interiew, I would have voted for the girl that works (or did) at a "love boutique". I didn't understand half the stuff she was talking about, nor do I want to. Nor WHY she was talking about it. Yikes.

And maybe the girl that didn't laugh or smile at anything.

If I get the job, I hope they didn't.

And no- it isn't selling donuts, kitchen-aids, popcorn or socks. Although I do love all of those things and would love to sell them. Any other guesses?

The tribe has spoken.

On Saturday I have a group interview. Not too sure if I like that idea. My maybe future employer claims they are "fun". We will see about that.

I am not sure I want to tell you where I would be working. Let's say you don't even need a high school diploma to work there. yup. I aim high. But it would only be part-time.

Pretty sure they will get my entire paycheck back because I love what I will be selling. If I pass the group interview. Maybe it will be like survivor and we get to vote people out of the interview.

This could be fun!
