Andrewism #10

Friend: "I can't get my hair cut, last time I did that, BYU lost!"
Andrew: "Dude, you're their Samsonite."
Translation: Kryptonite and/or some sort of reference to Samson from the Bible.
Best Part: He only made the connection to luggage and then we started talking about that.

BYU beat SDSU last night, and boy was it a great game! (I'm so relieved since Andrew put in tons of hours waiting in lines so he could actually get IN to the Marriott Center. I like a happy husband.) I was looking at Andrew's facebook today, and this is what I discovered:

And if we break down the largest category, we discover we can be more specific:

My husband is SO Jimmer'd.

Andrewism #9

"Tomorrow, I'm going to get everything underneath me."
Translation: Get on top of things.
Best Part: We can see from this Andrewism that Andrew views obstacles in his path as movable and conquerable; he does not feel the need to climb mountains to overcome obstacles.

Am I wrong or am I wrong?

"Slap out of it!"
-Cougar Town

Andrew can't decide if he's famous or being made fun of. I told him he is super famous and everyone wants to be like him, because it's true.

Out of Candy Cane Joe-Joes

My seasonal treats are the reason my diets don't really start until mid-January. But, today I ate the last Joe-Joe, and so I'm back to carrot sticks and pretzels for my snacks.

Other seasonal treats I love:
  • Stollen (mom's homemade and truly delicious bread)
  • Candy canes (we have some leftover, but I am SO OVer those things; definitely only seasonally delicious)
  • Advent calendar chocolates (only delicious because you can only have one at a time)
  • Chocolate oranges (probably seasonally delicious, but I only have one per year so I can't tell)
  • Cookies (all those crazy Christmas cookies you get from everyone; mostly delicious)
Just 11 more months until I get more Joe-Joes! (Right, Emily and Matt?)

Official Announcement

So, everyone already knows, but I thought I would make an official announcement about our summer plans: we're moving to THAILAND.

I've been in denial, but we have the plane tickets now, so it's probably real.

Andrew got a job as a program facilitator for the BYU interns that go to Thailand. It's a small program so that it will be manageable, as Andrew will really be the only one responsible for the group of interns. I will also be doing an internship, which is great. I think. We'll be living in Chaing Mai. When Andrew first told me where we'd be living, he said it was a pretty big town. With my skewed perception of Thailand, I pictured this:

When Andrew figured out what I was expecting, he quickly pulled up an actual picture of Chaing Mai:

Much more better. PHEW. We will still have about 800 more adventures than we would have if we stayed here for the summer, though.

AND, I've made this point already, but I thought I'd emphasize it again just to preempt any questions anyone else may have:

PS Anyone is welcome to visit us at any time, except during the month before Andrew takes the LSAT. No, I'm not kidding, he's taking the LSAT in Thailand.

Andrewism #8

"We should have a party and have everyone bring minority dishes."
Translation: Ethnic dishes.
Best Part: Said to a large group of people at a dinner party.

Why we should've stayed in Florida

Flying through Baltimore is always an unanticipated adventure. We should probably anticipate delays by now, but hey, shouldn't the airlines anticipate the annual snow storms that strand hundreds of travelers? (Can you say "strand" or is it always "stranded"?)

We ended up making it back a mere seven hours later than anticipated. And we got to bed only a few hours after that.

The biggest tragedy of this adventure was that I fell asleep at 10:30 on New Year's Eve. During a party. That we were hosting. Sorry guys, and thanks for coming.
