The missionaries came over today.  They wanted to ask the bishop (dad) about people in the ward to visit.  So, I sat in for the discussion.  At the end we had a little do-you-know... fun.  As in, oh, you lived in Riverside, so did we, do you know ___?  It went well, as it always does.  Then one of the missionaries asked me how old I am.  I said 25 (my birthday was last Monday, p.s.).  He was very surprised, and with the tact of a 19 year old boy, said "really, I thought you were in the last year or two of high school, like 16-18".  Hmm.  No.  Off by almost a decade.  Thanks though.  I am not sure if he was trying to test out his chances with me after the mission, or what.  I think I managed a "yeah, people usually think I am younger than I actually am".  So, if anyone knows any nice 19-year-olds, send them my way.  Apparently that is the age group I am attracting.

I went here and did the typing test.  My results:

You type 385 characters per minute
You have 69 correct words
You have 2 wrong words

I type 69 words per minute

I know that really isn't that great, but it is better than I expected.  What can I say, I just don't type that quickly, especially under pressure.  Typing from my head is much quicker than copying words on the computer screen.

What about you?

Giving in

A: Attached or single: Single, so very very single 

B: Best Friend: I have lots of "BFF"s.  But not really one Best Friend.

C: Cake or Pie: I am not really into dessert.  I do like rainbow chip cake with rainbow chip frosting, though.

D: Day of Choice: I like most days.  I guess mid May is pretty nice.

E: Essential Item: Underwear

F: Favorite Color: It used to be pink, but I have gotten past that.  I like green.  And a lot of other colors.

G: Gummi Bears or Worms: Sour Gummy Worms.  Those are the best.

H: Hometown: Murray, UT.  I used to claim Riverside, CA, but stopped claiming it when I was about 15.  I lived in Provo, UT, but have never claimed that as my home or hometown.

I: Indulgence(s): Hmm, traveling.  It is an expensive indulgence, but an indulgence nonetheless.

J: January or July: May or September.

K: Kids: None to speak of, but I feel like I have hundreds of kids because of work.

L: Life is incomplete without: friends

M: Marriage Date: May 23, 2010

N: Number of Siblings: 4 brothers, 2 sisters-in-law

O: Oranges or Apples: Oranges, except they are so darn messy and sticky.  You can eat an apple without getting covered with sticky juice, but it is very difficult to do so with an orange.

P: Phobias or Fears: I hate hate hate hate spiders.  And I am afraid of dogs.  Especially big dogs.  Weirdly, I am very okay with jumping out of airplanes, but little 8-legged creatures make me flee the room.

Q: Quote(s): I can't think of a good quote right now, so I will use the quote of the day on my iGoogle page: I know a lot about cars.  I can look at a car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming. Mitch Hedberg.

R: Reason To Smile: Breathing.

S: Season: Spring.  And I really like oregano, in case this question was about that.

T: Tag Six: Nope.  Won't do it.  I have a general rule that I don't do things like this, and now I am, but I will not be compelled to "tag" anyone else.  If you want to do it, feel free.

U: Unknown Fact about Me: My life is generally an open book.

V: Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals: I wish I was a vegetarian, it would be a lot more healthy.  Instead, I eat lots of meat.  Last night I had a dream that I needed to get out of bed to let the cat out (I don't have a cat), and instead of getting out of bed to let the cat out I just kept hitting snooze on my alarm. So, I guess I am an oppressor of animals.

W: Worst Habit: Computer time.

X: X-Rays or Ultrasounds: X-rays never hurt, whereas ultrasounds can be rather uncomfortable.  I guess for that reason I am going to have to go with X-rays.

Y: Your Favorite Food: This is apparently a problem I have.  I don't know what my favorite food is.  I couldn't even think of something I really wanted for my birthday dinner.  I am cool like that.

Z: Zodiac: Pisces.  My horoscope (from "Teamwork is the word of the day and wherever you find yourself, there should be give and take between you and the people you work with.  You are an incredibly valuable member, even if your efforts are low-key"  I think that just said I am a slacker.  Hmm.
