Today was an interesting day, filled with many and varied adventures.

It began at 5:00am, when I awoke to prepare to go to the temple at 7:00. The temple was marvelous. I decided not to wear my ankle brace to keep things uncomplicated, and it actually didn't hurt too much. It was really nice to get back to the temple, and wouldn't you know it, I totally learned something.

It continued with a trip up to my brother-in-law's office at Farmington to pick up passes for free tickets to tomorrow's Blaze game, and then a trip down to the Delta Center Energy Solutions Arena box office to redeem said pass. That's right, I have two free tickets to the 18th row of the first round of the AFL playoffs. Nice. (Anybody want the other one? I'm sure we'll find good use for it if not, but y'know.)

Then we find me back at home base for a quick lunch, then going out with the missionaries. I know, I'm such a sucker for missionary work right now. The appointment went well, it was with a nice lady named Dora from Guatemala. The one elder, Elder Parkes, is pretty cool, but the other, Elder Downing, is very quiet and reserved. Probably just because Elder Parkes is more outgoing. But anyway.

When I returned from my missionarying, I found a UPS InfoNotice on the door. Apparently they had tried for the second time to deliver my new phone, but we weren't here, and they were unable to accept the last InfoNotice that we signed and stuck to the door because it requires a signature in person. The InfoNotice said that they would try to redeliver on Monday, but unfortunately, we are not going to be in town on Monday. So I called up the UPS people and they said they would hold it for me at the hub, but I would have to pick it up between 7:00 and 7:30. Remember that, it becomes important later.

Then I went swimming with two of my sisters and their kids. It was fun! I noticed (far too late of course) that during the course of shaving my chest (look, it makes things a lot more comfortable), I totally missed a spot. :S Oh well, it was still fun. I still suck at swimming, but it was amusing to goof off in the pool with my nieces and nephews.

Afterwards, we went (in swimsuits (with dress-type covers for the ladies for modesty's sake, tyvm)) to the Distribution Center because my sister needed to get a copy of the video Called to Serve. We also ended up getting several copies of the new First Presidency picture.

Then I came home again and we had dinner. And then I noticed that it was 7:08 and I still needed to pick up my cellphone from the UPS hub which is probably like 20 minutes away. HI-YO SILVER!!! I made it to like 20th West and 21st South or so in under 20 minutes, because I rule and there was no traffic. What time did the UPS hub close again? That's right, 7:30. And what time did I get there? That's right, 7:29, baby. I fetching rule.

And so does my new phone, as I discovered when I got it home and started playing with it. It has the capability to talk to wireless routers, and apparently whenever you're connected to a wireless router, your calls are free and don't count towards your airtime. And since it just so happens that we have a wireless router here... Score!

And then I watched Numbers, which I have definitely missed watching over the past two years. Good thing my sister got me a copy of one of the seasons I missed for my birthday. :D

And now you have made it to the very end of this very long post. Good job. You get a cookie. No, not a real one.

Are you still coming to the Brother Decker party, or is the Blaze game at the same time tonight? ... *thinking of getting Spencer a planner* ;)

Spencer said...

The Blaze game is way earlier, so I will definitely be at the Brother Decker party.

I got a cookie at the Bro. D party, so there! I have thwarted your evil plan!

BTW, I like your phone. I did nothing more than slide it back and forth and was thoroughly amused.

I dig the Delta Center being crossed out. I really want Radium Stadium to catch on.

But I like the cookie...(reaches out with withering hand, and sad little voice)
