A Utah (Wo)Man Am I

We may not live forever on this jolly good old sphere,
But while we do we'll live a life of merriment and cheer,
And when our college days are o'er and night is drawing nigh,
With parting breath we'll sing that song:
"A Utah Man Am I".

I Still Love BYU!!!

I don't care what the final score is my heart the only place U comes before Y is in the alphabet!!

Love ya Cougs!

The Eagle has Landed!

These are the words that Scott used to tell me that it has been confirmed that Chris has a tattoo. I have yet to see it but I guess it is on his arm and it is a tattoo of a tribal eagle. (Of which tribe is he?) So he is officially "tattoo boy". 'Boy' being the operative word.

I knew you were all waiting with baited breath to see if the rumor was true.

Deep thoughts

I like the EDG title picture. I feel like it is a lot like our group.

Like the tree, we are all alone in the world, but we are surrounded by the rainbow (not in the gay sense) of love and support from our family and friends. We have come a long way down our road, but we still have a long way to go. And like the picture, we are approaching the autumn of our years. Although our leaves may change color and our branches may droop, we still stand strong, surrounded by our loved ones.

An Evening at the Asian Star

First, we wish to say we greatly missed Debbie and Roxane. Roxane had a family function to attend, and Debbie had to send out the e-mail stating that Roxane had a family function.

Annette, Amy, Shauna and I all enjoyed the Punctuality Tax, which was delicious, and the waiter was more than accomodating. The whole thing would have gone off without a hitch if someone (name might rhyme with Nannette) hadn't spilled the beans at the end of the evening.

Dinner was family style, and everything was delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and loved ones.

During the evening we learned that Annette recently went to Disneyland with her nephews, Shauna has a tattooed teenager, most people are just going back to their hometowns for Thanksgiving, Shauna went to Jerome a couple of weeks ago (woohoo!), and Cloe and Ellen enjoy mocking Leslie's native country. Also, Celine Dion has postponed her upcoming concert, which is the type of flaky behavior you can expect from a Canadian. Shauna and I were upset to hear our hair salon just closed down. If you know of a good place, let us know. Oh - Annette once had a roommate who thought "Ground Chuck" was actually made of Woodchuck meat.

The Battle of the Worst Fortunes came down to a heated contest between Leslie and Annette. Annette was voted the winner because her fortune told her not to expect much from people. She got the luxury of getting a second fortune, which said something about reading good books. We suggest something by Maya Angelou.

We also discussed this blog, AND SOME OF YOU STILL HAVEN'T READ IT YET. Shameful!

Deciding when to hold December's dinner was as involved and complicated as a global environmental summit. I think we ultimately decided on December 22 at Annette's. She better not expect much from us.

If I forgot anything please feel free to update or correct as necessary.

I was just wondering if the women of EDG might be interested in doing a sub for santa? We could find a family ( I know of a few) and see what we could do together for them. Just a thought.

Big Literary News for EDG members

Maya Angelou has a new book out called "Letter to My Daughter." You can purchase it for only $17.50. Maybe we could get a volume discount.
