Signing with Jon Boy

abstract johnny cash’s are fun

well folks, i’m sitting at a new coffee shop in town, its been open a few months now, but i had never brought myself to try it…i’m overly picky about not only my coffee, but my coffee shops….well this one’s a winner..”it’s a grind”..its not real big, and the music, although cool, is a bit too loud making my norah jones listening experience off my ipod a bit difficult….the workers have a bit of the ci ci’s feel….someone walks in, they say “hi welcome to its a grind”…friendly atmosphere, they bring your coffee to you, right beside ben & jerry’s (which both of these together could make me spend large sums of money real quick)….one more and i’m done…they have this huge abstract painting of johhny cash sitting over their fireplace….2 very unique things im digging…i think i’ll be here more often..

was supposed to work twice last wk, both were canceled (thank goodness) due to rain….this wk i was supposed to work today, tomorrow, sat. and sunday…today and tomorrow have been canceled due to big screen issues…which is fine bcuz

1. i dont like tennis
2. i need to study

so thats what im attempting now, studying about geography….whatever that really is….wedding and morning after wedding blog still in the works…stay tuned..in the mean time check this guy out:

until next time

i have a wedding post and will post a few pics when i get a chance…my internet at home is not working so i must work on it as coffee shops allow….so stay tuned…i promise its coming…until then, enjoy march madness!

rehearsal day/wedding early morning

well im sitting in the hotel…on this, officially march 10…wedding day of jeremy and kari…pretty sure you already knew that….

well the rehearsal went fine, took about 30 to 45 mins and then we went and ate at the reception hall…pretty good bbq…then we (groomsmen) headed to temple to do a little bachelor-partying…..we set out to go see a movie, but passed the bowling ally on the way and decided to hit that up instead….low and behold it was a club-like bowling ally atmosphere..black lights, strobe lights, loud music….it was pretty slammin….so we bowled, i had a horrible game, nic had probably the best showing of his life, and we had a great time just hangin out….loooooonnnnng day tomorrow….look forward to it, and i know the stars of the show are ready to git-r-done….so until next time

dan hawkin’s rant-re-enactment

the impromptu-surreal movie scene

so im sitting in the MSC flag room minding my own business, downloading (legally) the new passion itunes bundle, and the guy sitting directly across from me is also on his computer….and we both are just minding our own business, then all of a sudden he gets a phone call….im not one to pry, usually, so i didnt listen at first, i listened to my newly bought music…..well not 2 minutes goes by when he is talking at a normal tone of voice, which is too loud for such a “study-full” place…so i begin listening, thinking “he must not care if i listen due to the fact he is talking so loud.” so soon enough i begin to see he has not far removed from a relationship…apparently his ex-girlfriend was on the other end, and her voice was raised on the other end of the call, so i can hear bits and pieces of her too…this guy basically sounded like a torn up individual, he went home yesterday after class and threw up all afternoon, his thoughts on her leaving him for another man was that she just left and didnt take her long to jump in the sack with the other guy……this is not a paraphrase folks, this was exactly this guy’s words….i felt like i was in the middle of a movie scene honestly…..and the guy was you know, a pretty hefty guy from what i could see….well apparently he started to tear up, i know this bcuz i heard the quiver in his voice, and he said he was doing ok until she brought weight into their argument…..and at this point i feel sorry for the guy, thinking he is just another victim of our sometimes ruthless, yet God-given counterparts- WOMEN..(just playin mom…i love you)…poor guy…..so after about 15 or probably 20 mins of this convo about how he is such a mess, he packs his things and walks out…still on the phone….and i must say…..even though i felt sorry for the guy, i had to seriously hold myself back from laughing out loud…..it was very surreal….a quote from a professor i once had came to mind…”i dont own a cell phone bcuz i dont want other people to know my personal business.”….i think this guy should’ve followed suit..people..strange interesting guy,…lets not air our dirty laundry out so much…for the children’s sake

its been an already interesting 3 hrs in my day, at least i now have my coffee…

until next time, have a blessed day

Amazing Grace

i forgot to say last wknd….i went w/my dad to see the new movie “Amazing Grace”….i hadnt heard much about it, but i was expecting it to take a different angle than it did…of course i wont spoil it..

i leave you with this, from Chris Tomlin’s version “Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone)”

“my chains are gone, i’ve been set free.
my God, my Saviour has ransomed me
and like a flood his mercy reigns
undending love, Amazing Grace”
