Great Day at the Temple

I really need to get to sleep… I’m looking at less than five hours before I need to get up, but that’s about double what I got last night!

Things I’ve learned recently:

1. You can’t just go to Disneyland and ride one ride. We left an hour after closing (11) last night, so I didn’t get home till 1 this morning and was up at 4 for the temple!

2. Apparently Cynthia and I look like we’re married. It happened again today. I think I counted three separate times I was questioned in some way. Once by an officiator who when he asked if we were married and we told him no, he then asked if we had a date set yet! Then there were two if not three members of the stake that asked me about her. No wonder no one dates anyone! It’s not the “kids” that are thinking about marriage, it’s everyone else!

3. Five sessions is a lot to go through in one day with less than three hours of sleep.

4. I love turning my phone off and spending an entire day without a cell phone strapped to my side.

5. Sleep is good. I’m going there now!


Despite the trouble I’ve had getting to work on time recently, I was in Fallbrook before 8 this morning for my semi-annual teeth cleaning. That went well, but I discovered tonight how sensitive my gums are when I brushed my teeth.

I did a horrible thing on my way to the office. I’ve been trying to talk myself out of this for some time now, but I ended up at the AT&T store and picked up an iPhone. It’s absolutely absurd that I’m even considering such device as a possibility. I think everything is going about as planned. I’m getting used to the phone, but the service is horrible. The data is so incredibly slow I think sometimes I could walk to Google and ask them for a map or a search result before the phone is able to find the network and get going on it. I really don’t think I could ever use the device actually as a voice communications device (i.e. phone), but since I primarily use my Sprint phone for text messaging and data applications, it has a chance of working out.

I was in the office all alone most of the day. Today was supposed to be a day off for Batch, but of course he was still working and Tara was out with her dog. I was able to hold the fort down for the most part, I just forget how lonesome it is to be there without any company.

Batch and I went to finish up an install tonight. We had to touch up some programming and install a switch to change programs on an audio DSP unit. We then went out to Cheesecake at Tyler mall where I got to try the new peppermint bark cheesecake. It was pretty good, and I have half of it leftover because I was so stuffed!

I second your thoughts Hilarye. It is bad enough to get stuck between two large men on a flight in the middle seat. Can you imagine if they were both talking on the phone the whole time, or if the whole flight was? I imagine that just text messaging would be bad enough since most people can’t figure out how to actually put their phones in silent.

I just have one question. Why is it that people can’t seem to control their volume when they are talking on the phone? I for one don’t want the whole world being part of my conversations typically, but I know lots of people that always get loud when they get on the phone. Is it cause we can’t see the person that we think we have to talk louder?
