Opening night at home tomorrow for the Jazz (vs. Nuggets). Tis' the season!

I was always taught to be a tough girl... but considering I have been congested from the moment we stepped off the plane from Hawaii, and not able to talk for the past week I am going to throw in the towel, and go see the doc tomorrow... Wish me luck. However, on a better note, I did get a new shirt today:

And I love it. Devan also got on the new shirt train and got the ol' Maximillias t-shirt that looks like the jersey. Go blue or go home. Thanks team.

Thanks Ra-Ra for the tag.  6 quirks you may not know about me:

1.  I must have my door locked (all 3 locks) all windows closed every night and house/closets/rooms checked too.  I will check 3 or 4 times before I finally fall asleep.   Even after I have eyes closed, just about asleep, I usually have to double check with either Devan or get up to make sure they are locked and everything on the home-front is safe.

2.  I don't measure anything when it comes to cooking.  Actually, I feel like if I do measure I know whatever I am cooking will taste terrible, it's just the way it is.  I have to put things in as I please, and can't follow a recipe or I won't like it.

3.  I am kinda obsessed with being the super-fans of certain teams (Jazz, BYU, Timpview).  If anyone thinks they know more or are the bigger super-fan my face gets all hot and and my blood boils.  I insist that Devan, myself (and a few friends) are the ultimate fans and truly know the most!

4.  Kind of like number 1, but I am a MAJOR scaredy-cat.  Not only scary movies, walking to my car alone at night, being alone at night, but even down to watching Prison Break or Hero's.  I have to watch a happy show after those, or if I get riled up or scared it takes me quite a long time to calm down because my mind races like you would not believe.  The last scary movie I watched (The Grudge) I cried the entire time (in the movie theatre), which is sad because everyone says it isn't even scary-but I had nightmares for days.  Any time I watch LOST, it's a guaranteed scary dream for the next couple nights.

5.  I talk to my turtles funny.  I swear they can hear me and they love me lots.  They get the special goo-goo-ga-ga baby talk and get treats like royals.  I have a crazy obsession with not only my turtles, but ALL animals.  I love animals with a passion, and anytime one dies or gets hurt in a movie, I cry (and totally try to hide it from Dev, but it never works- three words I Am Legend).

6.  There in nothing more important to me than my husband and my family.  I insist on making sure I say I love you every time I talk on the phone or see them.  Even if they hang up quickly, or close the door, I will call back or walk in to make sure they heard me say I love you.  I get worried that they will forget that and it will hurt their feelings.  Also, I get worried that something bad will happen to them if I don't - the one time I don't.  You never know and I always always say I love you to whoever I can whenever I can.  So to all my family... I love you! :-)

So I guess we all have our quirks, which bring laughs, worries, and faults (like my own).  I hope all of you enjoy reading others quirks as I do.  I tag Ray-I-Fer, Lindsay T, Emily or Garrett.

'Uh Oh'

Big shout out to Carl Lewis. I have been thinking a lot about him lately, and somewhat feeling his pain when he so humbly decided to sing us the national anthom. Listen here to hear: I have had quite a few 'Ut Oh' moments in the past few days which would include (but not limited to)

1. Having our laptop kick the bucket after only a mere 1 yr. 10 month life span... BOO
2. Having to sing the "Give Me the Beat Boys" song in a concert with Sierra
3. Almost getting my head cut off by a chainsaw by Matt Dorme (yes, the Matt from So You Think You Can Dance) at a dance concert, also with Sierra - while holding hands, interlocking style and a tear streaming down my cheek.
4. Watching the new Twilight trailer for about 30 mintues straight, over and over again.
5. Trying to find a clever Halloween costume, which is looking like resulting in being Dee Brown or Ronnie Price for the second year in a row.
6. Realizing that having 3 hours worth of TiVo everynight is NOT ok.
7. Realizing that I am really and truly secretly in love with Knight Rider.
8. And finally, realizing along with my laptop kicking the bucket, also means all my pictures are on there, and somehow I need to surgically extract them.

So Carl, this ones for you. I'll make up for it sometime!
