You've Gotta Have Friends

Friday night marked a significant event. Well, not entirely, but there were poignant moments. I don't know if it was the silly slide show playing while we ate our ward Christmas party dinner, or if it was the impromptu puppet show Hayley, Jenna, Andy, and Brian and I put on afterwards, which was hilarious, by the way. But one of those moments was definitely after the party, when I headed over to Centennial apartments yet again to play and sing in the rec room with my "group". Last year, every once in awhile, some friends of mine and I would gather together, bringing all kinds of music (mostly disney and musicals) and just sing for awhile. They were great times, especially since half the time I was in my pajamas. A few extras would join us, but we had a core group of me, Cody, Rob, Lisa, and Mike (and Mike really shouldn't be listed last, considering it was him that gathered us most of the time). So we wanted one last hurrah before Cody leaves on her mission to Brazil and Mike gets married. Life changes. We can't stop that. But I was so pumped that we got to sing together one last time, even if I did start to cry when we were hugging each other goodbye. Well, the tears never actually came out, but I clammed up a bit. Good times.

I now officially know more about bagels than I ever wanted to ever in my lifetime. That's what comes of being around them for eight and a half hours a day. Phooey. At least I don't smell greasy when I come home, though, so that's a plus. But I do smell pretty yeast-y, if it's possible to smell that way.

I'm looking forward to this weekend. Fun times ought to be had all around, seeing as how my cousin Adam is getting married, and my family will be here, and I don't have to worry about working when they're all around. I'm really looking forward to seeing my family. They're pretty great. The only thing that I'm not looking forward to is possibly having to drive up to Salt Lake and Clinton in the snow. I'm not as bad at driving in snow as I was when I first did it at the age of 17, but that doesn't mean I'm really good at it or like doing it at all. But we'll see.
