1.) Remember how I told you that my niece was cuter than your niece? I meant it. She is Miss Eliza Jean the Beauty Queen.
2.) In other news: KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS, COULD PRIMARY HAVE BEEN ANY MORE OF A MAD HOUSE TODAY? To say that being both the Primary president and the stake girls camp director was kind of a big undertaking is like saying the Grand Canyon is kind of a big hole. But for the most part they have only converged slightly over the last 5 months and I've had a lot of help from very wonderful people and it's been manageable as well as miraculous. So it just figures that on the day before I leave for camp we are short eight people - EIGHT PEOPLE - in primary and the kids seemed to have OD'd on lunatic pills.
3.) In other, other news: I watched Space Camp the other night (jealous?) for the first time in years and found myself a little let down that I'm not an astronaut. It was my dream as a kid to go into space. The first time I watched that movie at a cousins' slumber part at my grandparent's house I vividly remember thinking, "Those kids are SO LUCKY to have been accidentally shot up into space." And I was desperate to go to space camp because, you never know, maybe I could be so lucky. Who wants to join me in my letter writing campaign to NASA to 1.) reinstate the space shuttle program (let's not talk about my heartbreak over that) and 2.) institute a new Writers of Humorous Anecdotes in Space program. Also, did you know that Joaquin Phoenix is in that movie? As a young lad? When he went by the name Leaf? Crazytown.
