alternate realities

Posted in Uncategorized on December 18, 2009 by Miriem

So if all my siblings could have a perfect job this is what they would be (obviously if money was no object) and these are simply my opinions not what they would say their perfect job was…

Adam — He would be an entrepreneur who just thought of brilliant ideas for people and got paid for it, or he would be a family history artist of sorts, he would design peoples family crests and symbols and signs and things.

Val — She would be a TV show critique basically grading shows and writing how she feel about them, or a verbal artist where she would narrate what she wanted to be put on canvas or paper and someone else would actually do it.

Jill — She would be a poet. I remember Jill used to write really good poems when she was younger and she loved it! Or she would just get paid to dress well and try out new outfits… well i guess there is a word for that…. a fashion model haha

Alex — He would be a comedian or voice impersonator. Just making people laugh. Maybe even one day have his own commentary show like Colbert.

Derick — He would be a scientist/inventor and just figure out little things and how they work, or a full time Dad. I feel like he would be a great father.

Casey — He would need to be a pro-soccer player or the owner of some building like Jump On It but instead of going to have fun  you would go there to let all your anger out and hit things.

I was just thinking of these on my drive home today and thought they were fun cause my family is pretty much the only people who read this. PS: The last idea for Casey would be awesome…. people would pay $10 and get to just be really physical and angry so that they would leave happy.


little things are cuter than big things

So I know I am going post crazy but I just got so many brilliant ideas today so I am putting them all down… Adam (my brother) was talking about how adorable baby otters are and I was talking about how adorable baby harp seals are and then Jill posted a really cute picture of a baby owl so  I am going to post some of the cutest miniature animals you have ever seen!

just as a side note, I will probably never own one of these things and don’t really want to. I just want to look at the pictures cause they are cute from a distance.

Baby Harp Seal: Too bad these things lose their fur and get really mean otherwise I would love them more!

Baby Arctic Fox: Alex, I feel like you would love this! I wonder if you can keep a fox like you can keep a dog??? If so this is the one!

Baby Monkey: I would totally want one of these for about 7 hours.... then I would be done cause it would poop everywhere.

Baby Siberian Tigers: I don't know why I love everything white but I do, they just seem softer than other colors.

Baby Otter: Adam, you were right, it is the hands that make otters so dang cute!

Baby Giraffe: His name would be Herbert and he would have no friends, but love D&D and be a really special friend.

Baby Hedgehogs: These are ugly but so funny to look at!

Babies are cute! Human ones especially but these are just for the animals today. One day I will cuddle all of these! (minus the hedgehog) Damn Animal Planet for making me love animals when I was raised without them and used to be perfectly fine.

So Tracy and I were talking about blogs and funny things we do in life, so obviously we had a lot to talk about (we are pretty funny) Recently I think it is really funny to brag about what I’m good at, even though I’m not good at it becusae it makes other people so confused. This includes making snowflakes, little things at work, boys and others.

But seriously, something I am really good at… pretend phone talking. I mastered this little beauty when living in Japan. i used to be incapable of going anywhere by myself even if it was a 2 minute walk and so I would hold my phone up to my ear and say things like, “Oh, you are waiting at the door for me? So I’ll see you in 15 seconds? Thanks Dad!” Convincing myself that by saying that out loud any predetor would be scared and not touch me. This was made even better when I didn’t have a phone so i would just talk into my hand. So I guess this became a defense mechanism of mine that had proven quite handy.


Age 19: I was living down in Cedar City and was working at the Best Western in town. A guy I had been on one date with wanted to have a DTR (for those of you who don’t live in provo Define The Relationship) talk. i thought that it was jumping the gun a bit and was avoiding him at all costs. He texted me one day to tell me that he was just gonna come to my work cause we HAD to talk. I was struggling to find some excuse not to have to talk, so as he walked in, I flipped open my phone(yup this was when the flip phones were in their prime) and started to talk. I waved and held up a finger as to say one second. After about 5 minutes of fake talking to someone on the other line, I told my imaginary converstaionist “one second” and told the guy that I was on a conference call for a non-profit group I work with (Kaiizen) he said he would wait and i told him it might be a really long time, hoping that would force him to leave, but to my dismay he stuck around. I fake conference called for 45 minutes. It was SO BORING! but finally he left and i avoided a very sticky situation.

Age 21: I have aquired this ability to get really awkward and embarrassed REALLY easily, it is a huge problem but my little skill comes into play quite often. Anytime I am walking around a mall or school or somewhere public I like to be on the phone so that if I see someone I know I don’t have to talk to them if I don’t want to I also tend to forget what I’m doing a lot so if I’m walking in the wrong direction and suddenly need to go the other way, I pick up the phone and turn around like someone told me they were behind me. I know I’m lame.

Basically there aren’t a lot of things I’m good at, but fake talking on a phone… that is one of them. So next time you see me on a phone feel free to wonder if I just had to changed directions, or if you are the one I just don’t want to talk to.

no rain now

So I have been in, what some might call, a drought recently. I haven’t been on a real date in who knows how long and haven’t really had many crushes, so my roommate Katelyn and I were talking to some friends about it the other night and some interesting things were revealed…

I was informed that because I live in Belmont, I am apparently un-datable.

Just because a girl lives in a certain complex, doesn’t mean SHE has one. I live in Belmont because I prefer to be surrounded by older more mature people and not freshman, as well as the fact that I live in a really nice place for only $390 with my own room and fantastic roommates. So sue me…. or just don’t date me. Yes there are the cake-faced, snooty, privileged rich girls, but you can find those anywhere. New flash, I drive an ‘00 Nissan that I paid for myself, I’m no snooty rich girl that is for dang sure.

Just because guys can’t get up the gall to actually ask a moderately good looking girl out doesn’t mean I am doing something wrong by living in Belmont.

I was also told that I seem mean. Really? I feel like I probably try harder (to a fault I might add) than anyone you know to be as kind as possible. Anyways sorry about whine fest I just thought it was lame that guys make so many excuses. I don’t believe that some good looking/great guy can’t walk up to me when I’m at school or at a restaurant or party and ask me out. Oh well. In short. Men, grow up!
