Do you realize that you look like a MUPPET when you sing?



I would like all of you to notice the startling resemblence between this potato and the manatee in the picture behind it. Uncanny, isn't it? Although, I never noticed this today, but I think one of the funniest parts of this picture is the little phrase below the picture of the manatee...
Bizarre thing of the day: I've been on this crazy rap kick lately. Which is pretty weird; I don't normally like rap much. But I'm talking the good stuff...the classics and those that don't take themselves seriously. MC Hammer, Will Smith, and The Black-Eyed Peas. (Who are really funny, by the way.) I've also recently discovered this HILARIOUS "rap" group from London called "The Streets." They sort of try to rap, but they've all got these funny cockney accents, and they're lyrics are things like

"Oy, just as you started to make your big advance
With the milkshake and that little doughnut in hand
I was like nah, I can't, even though you look grand
But you look sharp there smilin hard suggesting and
Gleaming away with your hearty hearty lookin tan
But i admit the next bit was spanner to my plan
You walked towards my path but just brushed right past
And into the arms of that white shirted man"

Read that aloud in a cockney accent...it's fabulous. The only thing about them is they're really clean almost all the time--they even say "my gosh"--but every now and then, they drop the F-bomb, which is one swear word I really don't like. Lame-o.
Yesterday, I had a day off, as I do today also (yippee!), so my friends Sarah and Mike and I went on a D.I. run! It was kind of unsuccessful...partly because we spent a lot of time dodging Mike's CRAZY roomate who works there, but I did have some good luck in the books department. All it takes is the patience to look at every single title, then you can come away with "Out of the Ashes," "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," "Peter Pan" (unabridged), "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn," "Wuthering Heights,"
and "The Call of the Wild," all for $3 total. Glorious. I like books.
I think this blog will be short. I think I'm going to go think about the 6 pallets of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" that are sitting in the security room in the warehouse of the Rexburg Wal*mart. Whoppee!

That is incredible! The picture and the rap! Speaking of which, I saw the coolest version of A Midsummer Night's Dream last night and Bottom totally rapped his lines. He rapped Shakespeare! It was awesome.
