Mumbo Jumbo

No pictures for today.

I had a very busy and crazy day yesterday. Evidently I have some sort of problem with some of my bones, so I get to see a physical therapist. That was painful, but hopefully it will make the back pain go away in the long run.

After that appointment I took my mother and son to visit my brother and his family. They are so great! Keith had a wonderful time with his cousins. I then got the greatest gift in the world. My sister in law just had a baby and so passed her maternity clothes on to me. She has the cutest style ever! I am so excited to actually have maternity clothes, and cute clothes at the same time! Thanks so much Ashlee!

On our way home we stopped by Temple Square to pick up Jeffrey from work. There I encountered the Second Coming.

Yup, you heard me right.

The Second Coming.

I know, you are all panicked and sad that you missed it, but really, its all about being in the right place at the right time.

As we were walking across the street to get back to our car we encountered a man who was just standing on the corner. He had white makeup all over his face and neck. He was wearing a white knit cap, a white suit, white socks and shoes, and white gloves. He claimed he was the Second Coming. I thought he was a mime with a really lame act. "Man leaning against pole on street corner."

Rather anti-climatic, I know, but what can you do?

I think it would have been better had he told people he was a mime. But then again, mimes can't talk, can they?

On a completely different note, I love Jeffrey. He is the world's foremost leading authority on Star Trek. He was watching an episode last night and said it was one of his favorites. I told him I thought it was slightly boring. I admitted that there was an episode I had seen a long time ago that I wouldn't mind watching again. Then I tried to explain it to him.

"Captain Picard was captured by a planet of some sort, and there was some kind of diety involved... I can't remember many of the details really, but I can remember exactly how the planet looked. Do you know which one I mean?"

And that amazing man of mine said

"Its the one where they run into an orb in space and it transforms the ship to look like the surface of a planet and the people all change personalities, and Data has about 4 different personalities in that one, right?"

What I want to know is how he got that out of my description.

And that is one of the reasons I love that man so much. Even when I am talking gibberish, he still knows exactly what I am trying to say.

And that must be true love.

There sure are some crazy people in downtown SLC. I haven't encountered as crazy a person as I have there here. (Although in Boston there are way more and way more crazier people walking the streets)
Oh, and I love my nerdy husband too!

Ha ha! He got all that from your explanation of Captain P getting captured by a planet and diety? Wow.

I saw that same guy out my car window as I drove by temple square on Monday. I really thought he was a mime...little did I know I was totally missing the second coming! Why do I always miss the good stuff? ;)

Stopping in from SITS to say hello...

Darn it! I missed the second coming... Does this mean I'm going to Hell?
