A Foreign Object

We had mixed feelings about this past Saturday. First, I'll get the bad news out of the way.

Why is Eddie frowning? I gotta say...isn't he so cute when he's sad?! And pouty?! Well I think he's so cute always. I should. I married him. I'll tell you why he is so sad. While building, that boy shot himself in the wrist with a nail gun. I really hope you're asking for pictures cuz thats what you're gonna get!

He was so tough about the whole thing. I'm so proud of him. And then they gave him a morphine shoot in the butt. And tetanus in the arm. He is so cute! Even with a nail sticking out of his wrist. Which, by the way, was a 3 inch nail, so it was about half way in.

OK now for the good news! Because Eddie and I were busy at the hospital and I had to take care of him while he healed that first day, guess where we weren't. We weren't building. Which was one of Eddie's points on the way to the hospital. It was about 9:30, so just before it got really hot. He reminded me that "hey, we don't have to go back to the work site today!" Maybe we should shot ourselves on purpose. Its a good thing we have aflac. And then, after the hospital, he slept all day. But woke up just in time to see a rock show at Velor with Bryan and Dawn Freeland. Eddie had to get up for that. We've been planning on it for months. We saw Mike with Cub Country, Hans with Shark Speed, and Chad with Return to Sender (which was our first date back before these boys could drive.)

There is Return to Sender on stage.

Now I'm gonna get back to moving, which is hard when you have the "kicked in head and shot in wrist" duo. We're collectively pretty useless.

My house

Check out my house! It passed for 4-way inspection, and the stairs had to be rebuilt only two times! I feel bad for Spencer...he had to build our stairs three times in all and I know I would die. But it's done! Now subcontractors are coming through to do the dry wall and hardy plank outside and all and next thing you know our house will be painted. There is nothing I love more than watching other people do work on my house. Except Eddie. I love him more.

the loss

Sunday was a sad day in the Everson family. We lost our beloved (and kinda hated) Snickers. We've had her for 14 1/2 years and she's been a great little beagle. But we were beginning to think we'd always have her. She got caught by her collar under a fence and she choked. Poor little thing. But we still have her daughter, Emma. That one will be here forever. She's always doing the dumbest stuff and she always walks away from it. She's going to be like my cousin's dog who was blind and deaf and froze outside in the snow, and when they found her they brought her inside and she defrosted and was as good as when she started.

But anyways, we had a service for her on Sunday evening.

Here is where she was buried. Isn't it a beautiful spot? I want to be buried there. Its the empty lot next door to my parents. I asked if it was ok to use and their response was "well its on a fault line so it can never be developed." Which brought me to my next question "what happens if there is an earthquake and a dog coffin surfaces" but they didn't seem to be too concerned. I guess if there is an earthquake from that fault line the dog coffin will probably be the last of our concerns. My parents house will come rushing down the valley.

Here is the coffin. Or casket should I say? My dad built it and then glued down the top and used his nail gun on it in case of coyote. He is considering leaving his job to pursue a career in pet casket construction. My mom made a little pink blanket and we decided to leave this homemade bone for her.

Eddie wished he could play "Amazing Grace" on the bagpipes so he could be the lone musician in the distance.

Kevin is lonely...

Kevin needs a friend. I remember when we found the real Kevin. He was working out at 24 hour fitness and Eddie though he looked so cool he asked him if he'd come in for a photo shoot. Next thing he knows hes a bobble head! A lonely one...

So rubberball is making another bobble head! Go here to vote for the next one. Leave a comment if you see something laughable so I know if you went! And voted!

Memory Lane...

This is fun!

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

One of the times I was in China I was at this place where you can get foot massages and they give you complimentary food and drinks that you can order. I love China! You can live so well! So this time I ordered this fruit platter (I actually went there every time I was in China, but this was the only time I ordered the fruit platter). Out came my fruit platter and here is what was on it:

-Apple slices (normal)
-Cherry Tomatoes (not so normal)

And that was it.

And then! I was walking to work in the RB and sitting in the hall was an Asian man eating a snack. He was bitting into some fruit...what is it?...I looked close. It was a tomato!

What is with the Asian culture and tomatoes? I think its because they are more intelligent than the Caucasians. A more developed culture. Think about it...they're culture has been around much longer than ours, and they have realized that a tomato is a FRUIT. Weird...I know. But either way, I don't know if I can eat a tomato like an apple.

Eddie's TV Debut

Eddie left for a business meeting that was at 6 last night, and I finished up some homework, and then I flipped on the TV. "I Love 2000" was on VH1 and I was watching that. Its kind of the year in review. Which makes me happy because I was 15 in 2000 and Eddie was 22. Yes, we are that retarded. We love VH1. But in our defense, we hadn't changed the channel since "The Drug Years" was on because we hadn't turned on the TV.

Well I was really happy about this. I kind of love "Best Week Ever" on VH1(this show is kinda like that but its a whole year); thats how I get my news when I have time to watch TV. That is how I am always so up to date and current...

Anyway, Eddie came home around 10, and he immediately made me go outside to the parking garage to look at how the little birdies had hatched in the nest in the garage. Then we went back in and a minute later...listen to this...the show was talking about Napster, which must of happened in 2000, and one guy was saying how he imagined a dorky Asian kid with a big forehead to have started it. And they showed this picture...

We can die now. Eddie was on "I Love 2000." What more could he ask for? What more can anyone ask for? Well I guess maybe your TV debut could not look so humiliating...

Guys you have no idea how clueless I am about current events. Last night Eddie came home from a meeting around a little past 11, and I was making dinner while watching "The Drug Years" on VH1 (TOTALLY interesting, by the way!). When he walked in, he asked "TV?" because thats how long its been since its been on.

I don't know...something about an election or something? I don't even know what other questions to ask because I AM SO OUT OF IT. Its pathetic, really. The second coming could happen and I wouldn't even know unless some celestial being showed up on my doorstep. After 10 or else I'm not home. Maybe if someone showed up at the house I'm building.

Maybe an earthquake would wake me up but maybe not. Maybe I'd know about that!

So one asks "how do you have time to blog if you can't even keep up on events?" Well, I blog at work. Its not even an option to blog at home because we don't have the internet. Our neighbors moved, and with them went the internet. We were paying to share, I swear, but whats the point of getting internet for few weeks before we move?

But yeah, I'm at work. Just down the hall my boss is conducting an interview. But what are the requirements for this job? Kinda like the Blue Man Group, there are none. You have to have the ability to swipe ID cards and hand out T Shirts? At least with the Blue Man Group you have to have rhythm.

Guys, fill me in! Unless its about construction, I wouldn't know about it.

The 4th (posted on the 6th)

The fourth was fun this year. My wonderful aunt and uncle (Laurie and Alan) had a bunch of tickets to go to stadium of fire and so we got to join them (we didn't know til that day!). It was so stinkin fun. WE GOT TO SEE MILEY CYRUS! And I guess the blue man group and fireworks and stuff. We had the best time. Eddie and I went to walmart to buy some appropriate garb. This is how we looked (with my Dad's Firebird):

We we're huge Miley supporters. But my younger cousin, Berit Green, was with us and she is a much better fan. But to try to even things out for Eddie and I we printed off lots of lyrics to her songs so we could have a sing along. But Berit is a fantastic and GORGEOUS cousin of mine, as all my cousins are. I want to look like Berit. Check out how hot she and my cousin Heidi are (Hiedi is brunette(just like me!) Berit is blonde).

Thanks, Greens, I stole this from your blog. Hope you don't mind.

I know I'm making enemies by saying this, but I can't lie about who I really am. I hate fireworks. I've never liked them, but July 7th, 2005 really didn't help firework's cause for me. Because I get dizzy when I look up. I know...weird...strange side affect from having a horse kick your head. But I must say, this fireworks experience was much better than usual! They gave us these 3-D sparkly glasses things that made fireworks even more glittery. and I mainly just looked at the lower ones. Pathetic, I know.

Eddie Contributes...

This is big, guys. Mark this on your calender.

First, Eddie put a comment on "cub country" for Brinley. This is HUGE. Here I am putting Eddie's name all over comments in the blogging world, and he has NO SAY. I hope he agrees with all of the stuff that I say on the inter web. But I doubt it. He just doesn't know that he disagrees! Seriously, it works for me. But everyone thinks Eddie is more fun than me, so I have to attach him to my name, as if "Breanne King" doesn't cut it. And I gave up a lot: being an "Everson" kind of made my stock go up, but I think it really went up when I married Asian Eddie.

Anyways, I'm off track. I'm talking about Eddie's contribution to this blog. Its not like he didn't tell me about Human Tetris. Or make that video for me. But this is bigger than Tetris. This is a real social situation that Eddie told me about. With the purpose of me blogging about it. He thinks its a huge issue that all of society should be aware of. He calls it a "crisis."

Entertainment Scientists Warn Miley Cyrus Will Be Depleted by 2013

Does anyone else think Miley is so freakin cool. The stadium of fire tickets (with Miley and the Blue Man group and all) are selling for hundreds on Ebay. Years ago I worked for BYU catering and I worked at the stadium of fire (and saw Mandy Moore) but this time, if I still worked there, I could see MILEY CYRUS! But sometimes comas get in the way and put a stop to your plans and make it so you just don't show up to work.
