This one was my mom's favorite!
This one of the Owl was my sister favorite. She still thinks it is a real good job!
I am pretty sure I told my friends this was some man that I knew. Yikes! For the record, it was totally out of a magazine! But it isn't bad. I still wish I could fix the shading on the hand. Looks a little off to me!
The original in Acrylics. I did probably freshman year.
This is my attempt at the same thing in oil pastels, my favorite medium, senior year.
1.) Call from home
Simon: "REESE! *gasp* I *gasp* just went *gasp* potty on the *gasp* BIG BOY *gasp* POTTY!"
Me: "Goobs, that is great I am so proud of you!"
Simon: "And I DID IT STANDING UP!!!!!"
*My baby brother is growing up and so excited to do so.
I love it so much when they call me.
2.) J: "I was wondering if we could exchange numbers. I was just thinking I would really like it we could increase our communication."
A: "I would love to participate in more communication with you. Let's do this."
3.) Snubs: "Annie tell me about ______"
Annie: "* Standard Response"
Snubs: That is a load of crap tell me what's really going on."
*I love how well he knows me. It is a little bit scary though to know and love someone who can absolutely see right through you.

I am a hungry girl!
Friday's Statesman, the campus paper for Utah State University, was always my very most favorite thing to read in between classes. Why? Because Friday was the day they published the Utah State Police Blotter. Oh how I loved it.
The other night I was going through some paperwork from school and I stumbled upon a couple of my favorites that I had saved.
I loved this one because I often felt like this in school. Oh my goodness what major should I choose? Which major should I pick next? Where should I work? Where should I live nest semester and with whom? What do I do when I graduate? That last one is the scariest really.
I love this one so so much. They called the police to report something suspicious and it was fruit punch! Ha how did they know? Did the officer get down on the floor and smell it or better yet taste it? It must have been fairly obviously not suspicious to the officer to have risked so much to find out!
Okay and my favorite of all time I could not find a copy of but I remember it well.
"University Police responded to the report of a man who entered the bathroom with a brief case and a watermelon and had not as yet, exited the bathroom."
I can't even imagine the circumstances behind this one. And if memory serves me it was in the old Merill library which no longer exists. Oh the times I had in the Merrill library, but that is a post for another day!
There is another one which I cherish, but it involved my roommate and an embarrassing situation in a bathroom stall. Due to the fact that she does not treasure the memory I will not go into detail. But if you want to ask me about it in person I will tell you the story. I mean it has already been published once before to a much larger audience.
You know how your body functions kind of like an antenna? And remember back in the day when we used radio or TVs that had them and you would move or adjust it and then step away it would go all fuzzy again? I believe I watched an entire episode of Dr. Quinn in an odd yogaesque position so I could hold onto the antenna and watch Sully toss tomahawks at the bad guys.
P.S. No matter what Katy says I NEVER had a crush on Sully. It was all her!
Well I think I have a new super power. You see the radio in my room is an actual radio. With antenna and as I walk around the room getting ready in the morning it switches between like 4 different stations. But I noticed today that it doesn't just kinda move a little, the actual digital display will move up or down like 10 or 20 digits. Weird.
Also my car does not have an auxiliary port so I have to play my ipod through an adapter that plays over the radio. Which has worked for years. Until recently when it won't stick to one station. So I got as new one. Same problem, as well as the three others I exchanged it for.
Now the speakers in my office are also going in and out of service based on where I stand. It has nothing to do with my cell phone either as it is not near by the radio in my room nor the speakers in my office.
So I went old school and made a few mixed CD's. My car has a 6 disc changer so I can still have a good variety in the car in the morning. While making these CDs I started with a Keith Urban mix, obviously. When I made subsequent playlists my two favorite Keith Urban songs would show up on these playlists and would not delete. So now I have 6 brand new CDs in my car that all start with my two favorite Keith Urban songs!
Want to give those two songs a listen?
Long Hot Summer
You're Gonna Fly
Or you can just go on a little drive with me somewhere.
In my car there are some Keith Urban rules which we will discuss if you are ever riding shotgun with me, windows down, and J-Lo's on.
