Maybe I should cancel my subscription...

I signed up to get the Daily Herald newspaper. I read it the first month. The picture tells what happened the second month. I guess I'll have to wait until I have more time to read the paper or just sign up for the Sunday paper.

The first win I've seen in SLC!

Every Laker game that I actually get to go to in Salt Lake ends up in a loss for the Lakers. But not this time!! Lakers were in the lead throughout the entire game, but I didn't want to get too excited early on and jinx it! Although I wasn't feeling well (what else is new?) we still had a lot of fun. If it weren't for the annoying 12-year-old who sat right behind us yelling in his high-pitched voice "My grandma shoots better than that!" every time the Lakers shot the ball (regardless of if it went in), it would have been a perfect game.


Our trip to Vegas wasn’t exactly as relaxing as I had planned, but we had a great time!

Things I learned during this trip to Vegas:

1. When you’ve seen one casino, you’ve seen them all.

2. Don’t wear BYU gear around Las Vegas after losing to UNLV (unless you feel especially feisty).

3. There are some rare instances when BYU fans cheer for Utah (…only when you really want Utah to beat UNLV).

4. Hard Rock CafĂ© is really LOUD…but you can still have your wedding there.

5. If you don’t feel like smelling like smoke, well, you probably shouldn’t go to Vegas.

6. The waitress at Olive Garden treats you like royalty….but the IHOP waitress doesn’t exactly remember you exist.

7. Driving around during rush hour is entirely stupid. You can watch almost all of Transformers and still have only crawled 3 blocks.

8. The zoo in Las Vegas is more like a…well, words really can’t describe it.

9. Parking garages can actually fill up.

10. It’s utterly pointless to argue with drunk people.

Some of my favorite sayings from the local yocals:

“They wouldn’t hold a conference tournament in Provo….who would come?”

“BYU?!? Are you kidding me? Go Rebels!”

“Are you here for the BYU v. UNLV game?”

“What does B-Y-U stand for?”

“Are any of you 21? Oh, nevermind…BYU”
