i'm happy and i know it

here's why,

1. i'm going to tahoe in august
2. the jabba wokkies (spelling???) their little performance on sytycd was my dream come true. if you want to know what i dream about, it's that. and waxing people's faces with honey. it was really stressful.
3. my garden is off the chizzain. like really good. our corn is at least... ten feet tall.
4. dottie got sprayed with a skunk tonight, but i am sleeping at the boice's (dogsitting not divorce), so i don't have to deal with it at all! have fun with that ty.
5. i drank lots and lots of diet dr. pepper.
6. when i told kelly i was in demand she said, "with who?? the change giver at the fast food window??" i laughed real hard.
7. tyler called me for a phone number and when i went to give it to him he said (in all seriousness), "wait i don't have a pen... oh here's a stick, i'll just write it in the dirt." i repeat it was in all seriousness.
8. i've been writing like a bat out of hell... if bats could write.
9. my two friends who read all that writing and tell me how wonderful i am... even though i think they are just being nice sometimes.... but sometimes i agree with them.
10. i have been laughing so much lately. i am finding everything extremely funny. frankly, i'm jovial. i don't know why, but isn't laughing the best? and the great thing is, it's mostly when i'm by myself.

ps- sorry for the lists all the time... it's my most comfortable writing medium.

yesterday tyler called me to tell me that the back window of his truck totally shattered out of nowhere. he said he thought he handled it pretty good though, as he didn't say one swear word, and just dealt with it. i replied, "yep, that's the breaks", to which he said, "what brakes?" and i said "you know, like 'that's the breaks', the expression?" and he said "what?", and i said, "it's a really well known expression, how do not know that?" and he said, "well, i've never heard that before in my life."
whaaaaaat? who has never heard that?
when he got home he told me that after he got off the phone with me he asked devon, the kid that works for him (that he also has a total bromance with), if he knew what 'that's the breaks' meant. to which devon replied, "yeah, it means to slow down, duh."
uhhh, is it an idaho thing?
speaking of devon and tyler's bromance...
it is the funniest thing ever. they talk on the phone all the time, but it is mostly saying things like, "you are so dumb, if you were here right now i'd punch you in the face", said in that flirty, teasing, i'm pretending i'm serious sort of way.
oh the silliness of new love.
the other week in primary tyler told the kids that the reason they were refusing to do something was because they 'probably weren't smart enough to do it'. to which the most reverent, well- behaved boy in our class responded, 'yes we are, you fart'.
tyler and i about died we were laughing so hard.
tyler is real funny.
