Hare Krishna

So this weekend was….. AWESOME. We went to the Holi Festival at the local Hare Krishna temple. So fun. Basically it involves people throwing huge amounts of colored chalk type stuff at other people with some added Hindi music playing in the background. Alright and now for another picture mosaic. Sorry we realize this is starting to turn into some sort of photo blog…..

Here is a video of the throw. Skip to about 1:35 for the exciting part.

P.S. How weird is it that that building is located in Spanish Fork, Utah?!? haha

Prepare for Greatness

Are you not INSPIRED?! JK

Just Kidding

But seriously? It’s coming. We are road tripping with our two favorite allies (lyrics point) next week, and movie going and we’re going to throw some paint and then concert going and that puts us into April which means school is almost out which is really the best thing in the world… because that means it’s almost SUMMER!!!! I’m charging up my video camera for the road trip and I just ordered a new charger for my regular camera. WHOOOOO I am ready to go!!! Also I bought new shoes… It was time 

I was just looking through our weird search terms and I a little bit want to dedicate one post to each of them. Because they are really just so strange… I’ll keep thinking on that and you’ll know if/when I start ’cause the post titles will just be completely weird.

I have a weird family… I have acknowledged this numerous time but seriously my older brother has a disease. And It’s called I will give people things that aren’t mine. Sometimes he will ask the person he is giving from and sometimes he won’t but even if he does ask he has already told the person he is giving to that they can have it. You can understand my annoyance with this trait as I have lost quite a few of my possession to it  and have had to rescue quite a few of them and that makes me seem like the bad guy. Today he tried to give my desk away to him and his wife. And I had to remind him it was my desk and that I needed it, but who just gives a desk away?! without asking its actual owner. and he does it like he’s doing you a favor. he’ll come up and put his arm around you (which is never a good sign in my family It means we have committed some sort of crime against you) and said “So I told my wife we could have your desk” and then I had to be the bad guy and tell him he couldn’t have it, and I just looked like a total jerk because I really am not using it right now but there is a chance I will need it when I leave for school again. Any ways here is a list of things he has tried to steal give away and stuff he has successfully stolen (marked with a star*)

*My snow thrower- This I actually had no need of and he gave it to my cousin who I would have given it to anyways but he still gave it without asking me first

A mattress… the mattress in his old room specifically. But I don’t know If you hold any sort of claim do your mattress but he really tried hard to give this mattress to his wife (fiance at the time)

*His ex girlfriends little brothers fly pole. He gave it to my little brother, and I just wonder if that boy ever misses it.

My printer, again to the then fiance. Just because I’m not using something at the moment doesn’t mean I never will again.

*My back packing backpack which admittedly I really never do use but now I don’t have it for the backpacking trip I am going on. Which is inconvenient.

*My moms crockpot. Like really couldn’t you just register for one?! I’m sure someone would get it for you.

* my computer mouse. He gave it to my younger brother which I don’t really get but I did get a new one out of the deal and it’s cute so I guess I’m ok with it

Non-Lady Gaga

If Lady Gaga was a male and Asian, then I imagine this is what her video would look like.

Also apparently there have been some copy right issues with this song because some record company claimed that it sounds too much like “Right Round” which I don’t hear, but I don’t claim to be an expert or anything.
