So after yesterday's library debacle, and being so blatantly shut down, I was a little miffed. Did I mention that I walked 6 blocks to get there in the first place? And then had to walk 6 blocks back without anything? Yeah, uber lamesauce.

I went back.

Library man: "Can I help you?"

Me: "Yeah, I came earlier to get a library card. But they wouldn't let me because I don't own any of these things (motioning to arbitrary retarded list). So I brought my Landlord (motions to Scott). Can I have a library card now?"

Heh. He didn't even have to show I.D. And I was so rude as to joke in front of the guy making my card, "Scott, quick, write me a lease agreement on the back of this envelope." :P

Pretty much just his presence secured my little plastic access. I now proudly wield my 15th Library Card. I move so much, I'm officially calling it a "collection."

I checked out 2 books, reserved 4 others, and of course got 8 X-men Graphic Novel antho…


I broke down today and went to the library. Because I'm bored and want to read.

But apparently when it comes to borrowing something I'm clearly going to give back, my sly dodging of the radar and leaving a mark in the system becomes a problem.

So I was denied.

Wait, really? Denied? A library card? Yes. Really. Simply because I don't have:

A) A Utah Driver's License


B) Gov't ID (got that) *AND* one of the following:
1) Lease Agreement
2) Utility or Cell Phone Bill
3) Mortgage Papers
4) Property Tax Notice
5) Pay Check Stub
6) Gov't-Issued Correspondence
7) Enrollment Form for Medical Services or a Hospital/Doctor's Bill

Every other time I've applied for a library card all I needed was a picture of my face and an envelope saying, hey, I live here. What's up with all this extra security? This is a LIBRARY. I'm not applying for a friggin' LOAN or access security-encrypted files.

I just want to read books. FML

Movies III

My summer has been rife with travel, adventure, pictures, great friends, and better conversation. But it hasn't been without it's down times, when I settle into to watch some action, adventure, or a love story. So here's to the big screen (even when it's watched on my small one)! I should also note that in this review (and subsequent) I'm expanding a bit from just movies to series that are canceled/ended I've watched in their entirety, as well as live stage plays which I've recently gotten back into attending...

The Giver (live play) - Grade C. I know, right? A live production of The Giver! We were so intrigued. We had to go see it. Had to, no options. They tried so hard to make this good. There were some things that were done okay, but really, Meggers and I agreed there was so much we would have done differently. The lead was way too old to be believable as a kid. There were scenes they did that we could have done better. They didn't even have a real ba…

Limited-Time Only

Yesterday I went rafting on the payette. Here's some candid shots of me, Turtle, Tobias, and Justin.

Rafting rox.

We're the first 7 or so, just look for the orange hat. Enjoy them while you can, I don't know how long they will be up. :)

Waiting, Always

Ugh, I keep doing more and more and want to blog so bad. It's all piling up... I'm going to have to write an entire novel just to get caught up.

Seriously, though, it's not entirely my fault! Part of it is that I'm STILL waiting on photos that should have been sent more than a month ago. AGH. I can't give you the full recap experience without glossy shots of yours truly looking spectacular and doing wonderful things!

Keep biting your nails, leaning eagerly on the edge of your seat. The so-overdue-I-could-have-taken-the-class-again-by-now awaited updates WILL come.

'Tis only a matter of time...

...and getting those [insert. expletive. here] photos!
