Whoever said ignorance is bliss...LIED!

You don't have to read this post. I just needed to get something off my chest. Proceed if you want but it is just me venting about someone and something that offended me today.

Okay, so I don't mean to make this post sound all preachy but something happened today about 2 hours ago and I just need to clear things up a bit. I am kind of having a bad day...well more like bad week. Anyway I was sitting in my sociology class today and we are learning about religion. My teacher had some vocabulary words up on the screen that we were copying down and one of the words was Polytheism. The definition of polytheism if you don't know is having more than one god. My teacher went on to explain that most religions today are monotheistic--only have one god however there are some that still have more than one. The example of this he gave was the Catholic church having the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This made me so angry! I wanted so bad to set him straight but in a class of 250 it would have been a little awkward.

So for all of those who don't understand this Catholic concept I will explain so you don't end up in my teachers situation. First of all the Catholic church has never and will never believe in more than one god. Yes there is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit however these are not three separate entities. It is called the trinity--one God but three persons. The best way to explain this is how I was taught when I was little. Think of an apple. There is the skin, the flesh, and the core. Three parts but one apple. So there is only one God but three persons--not three gods. Its a hard concept to comprehend but I just wish that my teacher would have done a little more research before he opened his mouth.

Honk if you love Jesus

I love reading bumper stickers. I love when you get a really funny one that makes you laugh out loud. Here are a couple that made me smile...

My dad would love this one

I took 3 years of French in Jr. High and was so bummed that I couldn't take a french class my last semester of school. I absolutely fell in love with the language and I thought this bumper sticker was really cute. I felt like ripping it off the car. As I was taking this picture, a guy waiting for the elevator in the parking garage kept staring at me. I hope it wasn't his car!

More bumper stickers to come!

My very UN-happy happening

Ok I need to vent a little. This week has been a complete nightmare and it is only Wednesday. This semester I am a PR Rep for the Student Health and Wellness Center on campus. We wanted to do a "week" called Student Health Week to raise awareness of the wellness center. This is Student Health Week. We planned seminars, H1N1 flu shots, free t-shirts and pizza...the whole 9 yards.

So yesterday was our first "Did you know...?" seminar. We had an employee from the wellness center come and talk about the services offered and also had a doctor from the Bear River Health Department come and talk a little bit about the Swine Flu. So the doctor was speaking and announced to the audience that there will be no more flu shots being delivered to the university for at least 2 more weeks! Holy Crap! What are we going to do?!

Ok we advertised like CRAZY! We went dorm storming, made posters for campus, fliers we handed out with string cheese to hundreds of people, a banner for the TSC, we put it on the events calendar online so it ended up on the USU homepage, we made an announcement on aggiemail's homepage, as well as a front page article above the fold of the student newspaper on monday. We also had radio interviews scheduled and a facebook group as well as twitter involved.

So with all of this advertising, we were totally freaking out! We have told all these people that there are going to be free H1N1 flue shots for students and then all of the sudden about 22 hours before they are supposed to start vaccinating, we find out there are none to be found.

Yesterday is when the emails and phone calls started rolling in that I have been doing my best to try to explain what happened but it has not been easy. This morning alone I get about 6 phone calls and 3 emails about the flu shots just from seeing it on the events calendar. Karlie made a poster explaining the best she can and our Facebook event attenders were notified. I also just emailed the events calendar guy for the third time (he has had to fix my mistakes for these events last week so he is probably so sick of me) but well see if he can take the events off.

Hopefully things get better tomorrow. I just want this week to be over!

World record breaker...not really

Wow! Ok It has been so long since I have posted anything. I have been so busy lately but I have a few minutes so I'm going to cram all that I have stored up in one post. Here I go!

Yesterday I was cleaning my room and walked out of my apartment to throw away my garbage. On my way to the dumpster I see this truck covered in leaves. The bed was full of leaves as well and a banana chair is in the back on top of it all. It looks to me like a prank. It actually made me laugh.

Last Friday, my old roommate Katie was coming up in the late afternoon. I got kind of bored and went to Whitney's apartment and we decided to head over to Spoon Me. We sat down and I see this guy pushing a Shopko basket with a little baby in it in front of the window. A few seconds later he walked by the window going the other direction. He did this about 4 times before he finally stopped right here. He had no bags in the basket and looked really lost so I don't know what his deal was. Then Whitney realized that he was with a middle-aged woman and a girl that looked about 19 which I am guess was his wife a daughter who were in Spoon Me. So yes I wasn't being very sneaky and didn't survey my surroundings before snapping a picture so they probably saw me taking one of this man but whatever. They left and the guy picked the little baby out of the basket and they all walked to their car. It was very strange.

Love this!
So this is my 2010 Calendar. I was having some trouble finding a new one for next year. I went to Barnes and Noble a couple weekends ago and my mom found this one. I could not pass it up. It is called Porn for Women! It is hilarious. Each month has a cheesy picture with a guy like this and a little saying. The phrases basically consist of things you would never hear come from a man's mouth. "You get more beautiful everytime I look at you," "I was wrong," but my personal favorite is "I have to work twice as hard as a woman just to get equal recognition."
I can't wait for January.
Whitney and I went to Sweeney Todd in October. It was completely sold out but one very nice samaritan gave us two extra tickets she had. So this was our view from the stage. We did end up moving over a couple of seats once the show started cause some people didn't show up.
I really liked the musical. It was kind of morbid and creepy but the actors all did very well and I had a really good time. You know me, I'm such a theater geek so any chance I get to see a new show, I go.

Before Sweeny Todd we went to Shopko and were looking for a hot glue gun. Didn't find one but it was a few days before Halloween and we saw that they had costumes for like 60% off. It didn't take long for me to see why.
This is Officer Midnight. My brother went to a Halloween party at the last minute and decided to go as a cop. I showed him this picture--he wasn't amused, but I was!

Heidi Ho...
And a banana....The worst part of this one is the placement of the bottom of the banana. It looks kind of like a man sling if you get my drift. And it says "One size fits all" down at the bottom. 'Nough said!
