Has This Ever Happened to You?

I've been running in the dark lately. I just can't seem to catch a run in the day time, so I've been running early in the morning, or later in the evening. It is a peaceful time to run.

No army guys counting loudly ... 7 .... 8 ....9 .... one ZERO!

No troops taking over the sidewalks.

Just me and a few other people out walking or running or biking, too.

But something weird seems to happen each day.

The lights go out.

I'm just jogging along, thinking about my to do list or my shoes or singing along to Sydney's iPod, when all of the sudden a street light goes out. Bling. Right as I run under it. And it gets really dark. And then another street light goes out as I pass by.


It makes me wonder if Dumbledore is hanging around, with his put-outer.

Does that ever happen to you?

Johnny Lingo Had a Cow

Last night Hannah was babysitting at Enrichment Meeting. One of the kids bit her on the hand. I was imagining it was a toddler, but it turned out to be a big kid, maybe 8 years old. Great.

Also at Enrichment, we had Hawaiian Haystacks for dinner. I have never actually eaten Hawaiian Haystacks IN Hawaii. I have had them in the past. They seem to be another favorite Mormon food item, along the lines of green jello with shredded carrots. A "Hawaiian Haystack" is a scoop of rice, a scoop of chicken in a kind of creamy sauce, some crushed pineapple, some green onions, and some fried crunchy noodle things. All us haoles in the group knew what Hawaiian Haystacks were. All the locals had no idea what to think of it...

Along with the Hawaiian Haystacks, we watched Johnny Lingo and talked about how to be an 8 Cow Wife. It was a really cute night.

Did you know there is a new Johnny Lingomovie?
