What is fascinating?

This is fascinating. The thing that really gets me is the expanding shell of radio transmissions. Man, that gets me.

Day 14 - Guys play MASH too

We were all pretty fresh off the mission. We were waiting for William Shatner to fill us with light and wisdom. We played MASH. This one was mine. According to it, I'm going to marry Councilina and have 15 kids, live in a house with a pet fat slug, drive an 18-wheeler, and make 180K a year as a stay-at-home dad. How very obstensive.

(I'm trying to figure out whose handwriting it is. I think it might be Lashley's. It doesn't look enough like the Council Bluffs font to be Council Bluffs' handwriting.)

Well, that's day 14 of 14. The good news is I've gotten all that scanning out of my system. The bad news is that 2 weeks of daily blogging has made me think of all kinds of things I want to post, but didn't because they weren't scannable. Okay, one thing. But I kept thinking of it for some reason. Expect a great picture from a camera phone in the near future.

Day 12 - Nice notes from girls

I was once an avid note-passer. I thought it was funny to put little hearts on the notes, so that it was more like grade school. Everyone who sees the outside of the note thinks it's a love note. When I was a clerk and handed out financial statements to ward members, I wrote names and drew hearts. Even if I was passing a note that said "Please move your morbidly large head so that I can see the teacher." As a result, any note I got back had to keep the theme up, and I got all kinds of heart-covered notes from girls! You can see the X's and O's on the other side of this one in the top right corner.

Day 11 - Guster

I attended high school. I had a teacher named Mr. Fields. I had a classmate named Lashley. Lashley and I would eventually end up being roommates at a univeristy in Utah. But at the time, our minds were focused on the task at hand: drawing pictures of Guster instead of paying attention in class. This one's easily the best one.

Day 10 - Notes

I went to a fireside once where the stake presidency talked to us about dating. Apparently, I didn't care much for their tone or approach. These are the notes I ended up taking.

Day 8 - Briefcase

I passed this around in Elders' Quorum one day. It was after I came to church with a brieface stuffed with oatmeal cream pies. Note: if you ever do that, people will ask you for oatmeal cream pies from your briefcase for a long time. Think twice, people.

Day 7 - Ambiguous Test Result

...or ATR. I took my car in for a safety inspection. They handed me this piece of paper, but I have no idea if it passed or failed. They've taken tact to a new level, such that I can't tell if they granted me a pass or not. Oh well.

Day 6 - Did I purchase a large hobo?

Yep. From Target. For twenty bucks.

Day 5 - Ben Jeppsen

I was once on an intramural frisbee team with Ben Jeppsen. He was the team captain. He was a lot better than I was, but when the ward would get together and pass notes, he still sent notes like this.

Day 4 - Things to blog about

I wrote all these down while waiting for a stake conference to start in the Provo Tabernacle. It was a long time ago. I've already used some of them. I know these ideas are gold, so if anyone wants to use one or more of these great topics, go ahead. Just let me know, so I can read it.

Day 3 - Theremin

Once upon a time, five of us took a trip to a little place called Ridgecrest, California. Their initials are Whitney, Gavin, PW, CB, and me. We swam in the sand dunes. We played 4-square. We ate at Jack in the Box. And we played Balderdash.

Readers. I exhort you to play Balderdash at 2 a.m. with close friends at least once in your life. The piece of paper you see here caused a lot of people severe shortness of breath and facial redness. Especially Council Bluffs. It was funny. We all thought it was fake and we were already enjoying the mirth of knowing that we were all spouting out lots of crap.

Theremins are actually really cool.

Day 2 - Close shave

There are about five things in life that make me happy. This is one of them. I don't know what the other four are, but this easily makes the cut. This is the worst ad a lot of us have ever seen. Kyle found this one and brought it home with him. What caught his attention was the expression of pain and woe on the face of our shaving buddy. It wasn't until we looked at it a few more times that we found the 2 typos. Find them!

boo scanners

I thought that scanners were magical boxes that allowed people to put papers onto computers. I thought they were the opposite of printers. It turns out they're only grinning scarecrows sent to turture and manipulate me. I've spent a lot of time lately trying to get my scanner working on two different computers, but it just keeps not-scanning. The people demand touch lamp lists. I promised Becca that as soon as I got my scanner up and running, I would scan 14 things and post one every day for two weeks.

As my stack of Stuff To Scan grew in size, I grew in giddiness, and my scanner grew in defiance. So I went to campus! I brought the stack! I went to campus! To scan!

My face remained expressionless, but I was smiling in my mind as I excitedly slipped precious documents between the evil jowls of the infernal campus scanner in the Wilk. Regardless of scanner placement, the scanner software ruthlessly cropped my e-precious documents to the point of slight unsatisfaction. Important stuff wasn't making it onto the screen! Luckily, the list made it, so I hereby declare this post to be the first of 14 consecutive posts of scanning joy. I'll figure out how to scan later. And check out some other blogs to find out what this list is about. Start here.
