Stuck in the Middle

So, we had our last three day weekend of the semester. Now it is every day all week till the end of April.

We used the weekend to go and visit some friends of ours in Pheonix. Dana and I were sick the whole week before, so it was nice to get away from the very cold weather. But I think we scared Ryan and Kathrine with all our hacking and coughing. We also made friend with their dog, Dashel. It made me want a puppy.

For Valentines day Dana bought me an MP3 player. Its 2gb and red and small and I love it. :-). I bought Dana a lego set that he's been wanting. It has Kit Fisto in it. If you don't know who that is, I've put in a link to wiki. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kit_Fisto

Now it is an endless line of tests, quizes, and papers until the semester is over.

Billy Collins, former Poet Laureate, is coming to BYU for a reading. I'm skipping class to hear him speak. This will fall under the category of not letting my schooling getting in the way of my education.

This last weekend I made carmels. With a vanilla bean. They were delicious. And addictive. But they turned out surprisingly well. I dont have a lot of luck with candy. The last candy I made, divinity, instead of being light and whipped turned out gooey and messy. Dana is a real sport and eats everything I make, even when it turns out less than good.

Also, George Michael says hello.
