I hate it when my pants and shorts stick to my legs. Stupid Static. Anywho, I got sick of it the other day so I decided to shave my legs, not perfectly smooth, but with the sideburn trimmer on my electric razor. So I shave one leg, the left one, and then the battery died. Oh stink. So I have been going around for three days with one leg shaved and one not shaved. I have been busy. I think ill shave (trim) the right leg today...after I go to the bank. goodbye static.

4 tablets (200mg each) takes exactly 45 minutes to kick in, lasts for 4 hours. Then repeat.

Long story short I had two tooth aches. After I got the second one fixed the dentist gave me a couple 800mg Ibuprofen. They worked wonders, then I ran out. The teeth were still really sensitive, thus requiring more Ibuprofen even though the teeth were fixed.

Above you can see how i was using Ibuprofen. I just read the real directions on the bottle, here they are:

-Do not take more than directed.
-The smallest effective dose should be used. ***Broke this one, after I ran out of the big 800mg Ibuprofen I woke up in the middle of the night in pain. So I go to the bathroom and pour the Ibuprofen into my hand, and think, "hmmm so the big ones were 800mg, that means I need to take 8 of these smalls ones." I get into bed and think, "oh crap I just took 8 200mg tablets...thats like...oh crap!"
-Do not take longer than 10 days, unless directed by a doctor (see warnings). * Did this too.
-Take 1 Tablet (200mg) every 4 to 6 hours while symptoms persist. ***One? lol.
-If pain or fever does not respond to 1 tablet, 2 tablets may be used.
-Do not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours, unless directed by a doctor. ***oops.

Stomach bleeding warning: This product contains a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which may cause stomach bleeding.

What I did wrong: took way too much!!!! haha basically like 20 in one day. I think my pee even smelled like it.

Well my roommates think i'm addicted to it now. My mouth hurt! It's getting better now. I think i'll quit cold turkey, basically so my stomach doesn't bleed! Hopefully I don't die anytime soon due to Iburofen...poisoning.

all in a fortnight...well maybe just one night.

My living room is one large fort! Furnished with both our couches, a table, and tv. This is a true story I have pictures to prove it. A couple weeks ago Jarom and Rachel were talking about making a fort...nothing really came of it, untill now. I guess thy used to make forts when they were little. My sisters and i never really did this. We played "cushion day," We took all the cushions in the house and put them at the bottom of the stairs, then jumped onto them :) So on monday night the magic happened! The crew consisted of: me, Jeff, Jarom, Mike, Missy, Rachel, Becca, Emma, and Anne showed up late. The following is the photographic evidence that this fort was and still is real:

The Begginings

This is the guard. we decorated him with my new mullet wig and glasses. then missy, the resident art major, drew him a body.

The top of it!

This pic is taken through the entrance, through the kitchen table.

The two masterminds at work.

It got scary in the fort.


Then rachel wanted to take gongsta pics, so i got out my bandanas.

Ensign/Liahona Aspirations

The following is my surefire plan to get a picture of me in the Conference edition of the Ensign/Liahona:

I have been home from "the mish" for a little over 2 1/2 years, long time right? In that time I have not seen any of my former companions. I had 11 companions, 10 of them are from africa; South Africa (4), Madagascar (1), Zimbabwe (1), Kenya (1), Uganda (2), Ghana (1). My companion from Ghana, Elder Brown, attends BYU-I. Janna attends BYU-I. I called Janna and had her give him a ride down here to Utah for conference/mission reunions. So she did. Before they came Sylvester (Elder Brown) informed me that he had conference tickets to the sunday morning session! w00t! Never seen motab in person. So we went to mission reunions (two) and had some fun. He visited his "lady friend" from Ghana who is going to BYU.

So on saturday I had a genius idea! You know how when you look through the pictures of the conference Ensign/Liahona they only put "ethnic" looking people in it? You know where i'm going with this right? Sylvester and his friend are black africans. I told Sylvester and his "lady friend" that our goal for the day was to get in pictures taken by Ensign photographers! They thought it was a good idea. The session ended and we started walking around. When we saw photographers we would walk past them multiple times. Then we were walking behind some regular white people and the photographer takes their pic. We walk past and I say to Sylvester, "that was messed up, he should have taken our picture." Out of the corner of my eye I see the photographer walking up to us, "can I take your picture." We accepted. We stood there and smiled while he took a bunch of pictures, changed settings and positions then took more. We walked away satisfied. They take thousands of pictures, but I think our chances are pretty good. A white guy and two native africans, very diverse, you know, like the church. Oh, and conference was great!

here are some pics of elder brown and I:

Elder Brown all thugged out.
