Moments ago, I searched for "MMMBop" on Google and watched the music video. I have some distinct memories of watching this music video on VH1, probably, when I was about 10 or 11. The cave bit was the thing I remember most from the video.

Tim walked over and the following conversation ensued:

Tim: I wonder what these kids are doing now.
me: I think they're still making music.
Tim: As Hanson?
Tim: That's good they're still making music. They didn't let puberty dog 'em!

Now he is reading the article on Wikipedia about them.

anniversary no. 2

Has it really been two years already? Weird.

We went to J Dawgs in Provo. I introduced Tim to J Dawgs almost three years ago. We went during a lunch break at work. That first time, Tim asked me if he should get the special sauce, and I was like "Get whatever you want," so he didn't get the special sauce and didn't understand the hype surrounding J Dawgs. I'm not sure why I didn't say something like "Well, it wouldn't really be J Dawgs if you didn't get the special sauce." He's since discovered what makes a J Dawg. Duh. Now every time we go to Provo (not often) he wants one.

We were also going to visit some of our other haunts in the Provo area (e.g., that one place in Provo Canyon where he wooed me by singing with his guitar and I "jumped" on him), but the weather was bad. So we went to Costco and ate samples instead.

Happy anniversary, us. It was a good day!

Tim is in a film class this semester in which he is required to watch the likes of the following:

Birth of a Nation
Modern Times
The Searchers
Imitation of Life
Night of the Living Dead
Blade Runner

I watched Blade Runner with him last weekend and I

In fact, this feeling of confusion and general distaste has been my response to most of the movies that I watched with Tim for this class. I pretty much hate them all. Too bad.

But we did watch another movie (Sweet Land) last weekend that I really liked. Thank you, Netflix.

Tim was up in the middle of the night last night as he sometimes is because he can't sleep. This is what he was working on, apparently.

I keep seeing this out of the corner of my eye and thinking someone is there. Freaky. Now that I've documented it sufficiently, it's going down.
