Last week in review

Ninja Assassin - Wow, this movie was full of blood.
The Sorcerer's Apprentice - Although I don't like Nicolas Cage, and the voice of that nerdy kid drives me crazy, this movie was surprisingly good... Although I don't think "surprisingly" is the right word since Disney movies are very rarely terrible. We both enjoyed it. I loved the music. and the fact that they included THAT scene in the movie just made me smile. and don't forget, when you watch the movie... sit through the credits.
Teen Titans: Season 3 - There are only like 13 episodes per season. We'll be done watching these before we know it. Also, it has been fun watching these because only seasons 1 & 2 were aired on the WB and all the rest never made it past the Cartoon Network so these ones are all new to us.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 2 - Wow, a lot happened in season 2 that I thought were further into the series. I guess that's what I get for watching all the episodes out of order on TV. There were a lot of episodes at the end of this season that made me cry. Maybe that was just the mood I was in, or maybe they were just that sad.... Hmmm... I think they were just that sad.
Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood: Season 1 - This is a remake of this series that was previously completed. Anime, go figure. This round of adventures is a little different from the original series and supposedly is closer to the Manga Book series. John calls it the Full Metal Cliff Notes because it just tells the same story from a different perspective. We still love it, and there is enough new stuff in the season that it isn't just repeating itself.
The Big Bang Theory: Season 1 - this is one of the funniest shows every. We laugh so hard watching the antics of those four nerds. I do have a complaint though, it seems that either the DVD, or my DVD player has issues... Originally, the DVD Player wouldn't even load the disk, so we switched players and then the DVD worked but it skipped constantly. It was a brand new DVD Player so I would hope it wasn't the Players problems. I even ran the lens cleaner and it didn't make a difference. So sad, but over all it didn't dim our enjoyment of this comedy.
Monday - Tacos
Tuesday - Homemade Pizza
Wednesday - Texas Roadhouse Ribs - mmmm
Thursday - French Toast
Friday - Spaghetti
Saturday - Garcias
Sunday - Burritos
Saturday was July 24th. That's a holiday here in Utah, celebrating the Pioneer's that settled Utah in 1847. We woke up at 9 am to watch the parade on KSL channel 5. The parade was good, it had the Davis high Marching Band, which was cool. Funny even after almost 16 years I'm still a band nerd. Somewhere in the middle of the parade I made us Cinnamon Swirl French Toast with some of the fabulous Cinnamon Rolls I made on Thursday night. Mmmm they were good with maple syrup and powdered sugar. Later that evening we decided to go out to dinner at Garcias, always a yummy alternative to making my own dinner. After dinner we made a run to the Fireworks stand to purchase some entertainment for the evening.  (first I have to preface this by saying that one of our favorite types of fireworks are the parachuters) We ended up buying a firework called "Captain America" that was 30 (yes THIRTY!!) Parachuters in one compact but heavy box. It was awesome. Some troopers had smoke bombs, some had flags and some were just plain parachuters. So awesome in fact that we had to go get another one to let off when the rest of the family arrived. We'll have to remember that one for next year. :) I give it a two thumbs up for fun.
This week the family is coming in. Not as many of the family  will be here as I had first thought. One Nephew has to start School next week as the Student Body President, another nephew doesn't ever come to anything, another nephew can't get off work, and my sister-in-law is also stuck at work. My brother-in-law is coming for a few days before he has to fly back home for work... but 21 out of 25 isn't bad for one of our family gatherings since we're spread across the country.

I know you don't understand why my heart is sorry now...

Fairweather Johnson

    Hootie & the Blowfish


Be the One

Sad Caper

Tucker's Town

She Crawls Away

So Strange

Old Man & Me

Earth Stopped Cold at Dawn

Fairweather Johnson


Let It Breathe

Silly Little Pop Song



When I'm Lonely



Release Date: April 23, 1996

Hootie & the Blowfish was quintessential listening for the preppy girl back while I was in high school. although I wasn't a preppy, I did enjoy listening to Hootie. I love Hootie & the Blowfish, I usually end up listening to this when I'm in one of those reflective moods that needs a soft backbeat. When I listen to this CD now days it reminds me of a lot of high school experiences. Most good, some bad, and a large majority of them involving Lagoon, boys and my sister. They all make me smile now that I'm older.  I choose Fairweather Johnson as my favorite Hootie CD because it has the songs I love, that I listen to the most. I also own Cracked Rear View, but I don't listen to that one as much.

I saw them live once, at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City. I don't remember the year, but I was with Norm and Jessica, and we were on the floor, all they way at the back on the right side. Live is always the best (unless a band sucks live.)


My most favorite song on this disk is Tootie. Why do I love this song so much? I'm not really sure, I love the music. I love the mournful tone of Darius Rucker's voice. I love the sound of the cello. And when preformed live it is played on a silver guitar.


Other favorites on this album:
Tucker's Town

She Crawls Away

Earth Stopped Cold at Dawn

Let It Breathe

When I'm Lonely


I hate to admit that this is the last CD I bought from this band, even though my Googling today showed me that there were a few others that came out after and that I missed. It's one of my short comings, I love something, and I obsess over it for a few days or a few years, and then I move on and fall short on my follow-up even though I love something so much.

I hear Darius is a country singer now... I may have to give him a listen.

The prompt: "The Princess and the Pea" by Edmund Dulac


Here we go...

 (Every time I present something using those words it reminds me of Calhoun Tubbs from In Living Color when he would say "I wrote a song about it. Wanna' hear it? Here it goes." ... now back to my Entry.)


"Oh, Its so high." Elspeth said timidly as she was shown to her room for the night. Turning to her hostess she smiled radiantly and added, "This will be perfect."

"For your comfort," Mistress Annan said as she bowed slightly to the girl before her. "We only want to give our guests the best accommodations."

The older woman backed out of the room leaving Elspeth alone staring up at the huge pile before her. Elspeth had felt like she had been treated strangely since entering into this house, from dinner where she was served first, to being offered the warmest place by the fire. Perhaps this was their custom she thought, but that statement didn't bring her any more understanding of the strangeness of it all. There was a ladder propped up against the bed waiting for her to ascend to the top, but she couldn't her arms trembled and her feet felt glued to the floor.

"One... Two... Three..." She started counting to calm herself, then quickly realized that she was counting mattresses instead. "Sixteen... Seventeen... Eighteen..." She stopped counting and swallowed taking hold of the first rung of the ladder. Stepping up she started her count again lifting one foot above the other and nineteen rungs later she threw herself onto the pile of stack of mattresses.

The bedding was soft, made from the finest materials. The silks whispered across her skin as she turned over and stared at the very close ceiling.

"Breath," she reminded herself, "just breathe."

And that's how the hours passed until the first light of morning blushed through the window far below her.


"Oh, my Dear," the older woman addressed her at the breakfast table. "You look so tired. Did you sleep well?"

"Yes, quite well. Thank you." Elspeth lied, and plastered a smile on her face.

Mistress Annan paused for a moment in thought, her lips curling up at the corners as she outwardly accepted the lie, but inwardly she laughed at her discovery. This girl, more than likely was the lost princess! That pea beneath the piles of feathers and cloth must be what kept her awake all night. However she didn't say anything out loud and continued to serve Elspeth throughout the day and finally escorted her back to the mattress room that evening.

"Good night, Dear." Mistress Annan said, a little patronizingly as she left Elspeth once again at the door.

Again she turned around and looked at the daunting climb, and tonight, instead of summiting the mountain she curled up on the floor near the door and tried to sleep. The floor was most uncomfortable, making her toss and turn throughout the night resulting in little sleep and a crick in her neck.


The second morning she sat at the table and rubbed her neck gently while the household bustled about her.

"Is everything all right, Miss?" A young serving girl asked her as the table was being cleared. Elspeth didn't notice the mistress of the house lurking in a near by doorway when she replied.

"I didn't sleep very well Bessie. Might you bring me a warm cloth for my aches while I lounge on the settee for a while.

"Yes, Miss. Right away." and the girl scurried off passing Mistress Annan in the hall, the latter wearing a triumphant smile.

One more night. She thought, One more test. Three would be her lucky number and then she would marry this girl to her son Hubert before announcing her royalty to the world.


As Elspeth reclined in the sitting room she was startled by Hubert touching her hand.

“Miss Elspeth?” He inquired as she opened her eyes. “I have grown very fond of you since you have come into my home, I’d be happy to have you as my wife… If you would take me.”

She was surprised to say the least. But she too had grown very fond of Hubert in their short time together, in fact, she would say that she had fallen in love.

“Hubert,” she said quietly. “I would have you. But I don’t think that we can be together, we are so different. Your mother would not approve.”

“She will,” Hubert said, sounding certain. “give me until tomorrow. Then we shall marry right away, I have lived this long without you, to spare another day would be torture.”

Elspeth nodded vigorously and they sealed their pact with a kiss before he excused himself to speak with his mother.


“I wish to marry Elspeth, Mother. She is my match in every way.” He said forcefully to his mothers back. She was standing in her garden watching the servants week her flower beds. “She is the one I have chosen.”

His voice had lost a little of his fire when Mother didn’t turn to look at him. The evening was creeping in over the tree tops creating long shadowing in the suns orange light making her seem larger and menacing.

“You have made this decision on your own?” She said, her voice cool though he had unknowingly fallen into her plans. 

“Yes Mother.” His response quiet, fearing her disapproval.

“I shall give you my answer on the morrow. Go now, and escort your betrothed to her chambers, the night is upon us.


“Sleep well, My love.” Hubert kissed the dainty hand that he held in his before leaving her to her evening preparations.

“Hubert, I haven’t slept well these last two nights. I fear tonight will be no different.” She sounded resigned and lay her hand on the knob to her chamber. “Good night nonetheless, dear Hubert.”

He reached out taking her hand and pulling her one step towards him. “Then we shall wed at mid-day and tomorrow night you may rest in my arms.”

With a kiss he was off and Elspeth was again left alone with the insurmountable task of trying to sleep on the great pile that was her bed. Remembering how horrible the floor was to sleep on she once again climbed the ladder, because lying awake all night fearing a fall to her death was much more comfortable upon the mattresses than sleeping on the hard wooden floors.


Upon the third morning the bags under Elspeth’s eyes were darker and her eyes had a hard time remaining open, but today was her wedding day and she could not fall asleep before the ceremony.

Mother had surprised Hubert by bringing the Parson to breakfast and announcing that he should marry as soon as possible and as soon as they had breakfasted preparations were hurriedly being made.

Elspeth was swept off by several maids and bathed before she was stuffed into a white dress that she was told belonged to the Mistress Annan and adorned with jewels from the master’s collection.  

Before she knew it she was standing next to Hubert, dressed in his finest suit and taking her vows.

“… and now I pronounce you man and wife.” The Parson’s final words hung in the air for a moment before Huber and Elspeth kissed for the first time as a married couple and as they parted Mother waved two men in to the room.

“Mother?” Huber questioned. “Who are these gentlemen?”

“Sir Lelandor and Sir Cavendish,” She addressed to herself to the men, and not to Hubert. “I present to you the Princess Elizabeth Orillia Graventhope Calliope.” She bowed low, holding her hand out towards Elspeth as if presenting her as a gift to the new comers.

“What?” Hubert and Elspeth asked at the same time. Elspeth gapped and Hubert turned to her.

I can't believe it. I'm in love! I'm in love with a young, beautiful, talented Princess.” Hubert dipped her low and kissed her.

“Princess?” She sounded confused, pushing on his chest urging him to put her up right.

Oh... not that the title's important, of course!” He said quickly to be sure she understood.

“I’m not a Princess.” She said flatly.

“Not a Princess?” Hubert questioned.

“No, I’m a poet.” Shaking her head she looked at Mistress Annan.

“A poet?” Sir Lelandor replied sounding scandalized.

”What?” Mother interjected, for now she was Elspeth mother as well.

“I’m not a Princess,” she restated it seemed everyone was hard of hearing today.

But the test?! Mother said, her hand fluttering in Elspeth’s direction. “She slept three nights on a pea beneath twenty mattresses and slept poorly each night.. How can you not be the Princess?!?”

“You silly woman,” Elspeth practically laughed. “I slept poorly, because I am afraid of heights. Not because of some miniscule vegetable place beneath me.”

“Oh!” Mother wailed. “Oh, I am ruined!” crumpling to the floor she sobbed loudly.

“And you, Hubert?” Elspeth asked turning to her new husband. “Are you ruined as well?”

“No, My love, You make a much better poet than a princess any day.” He smiled lifting her into his arms.

Sir Lelandor and Sir Cavendish, stood dumbfounded at the revelation that wasn’t a revelation right in the way of the happy couple.

“If you’ll excuse me gentlemen, I’m going home to sleep with my wife.”

That hasn't happened in a while ...

Today I read THIS blog, THIS blog and THIS blog...

... and had to go in my room and cry for a while.

Its rather pathetic how I fell like I'm really doing okay and that I'm okay with the way I am and how life is rolling out before me until WHAM! I'm hit with envy from out of nowhere.

Now back to real life.

Little girls

This is my picture for the day. She was having tea with the potato heads.

What have I been doing lately?

Audio Books:
Linger - By Maggie Stiefvater - This is the sequel to Shiver that I have mentioned here before. I LOVED IT! .... now I just have to wait until next July for the third and final installment of this trilogy.
North and South - Elizabeth Gaskell - (Not about the civil War) Long Classic novel read by a woman in an English accent that took me nearly 2 weeks to listen too. It was good... but very long.
The Last Airbender - I liked this movie. It did get long in some parts, but for the most part it was generally enjoyable. It looks like there should be at least two more (if it does well enough) I'll watch them when they come out.
Teen Titans: Season 2 - I enjoy this cartoon :)
Video Games:
Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 - This game has been super fun, if a little challenging at times. As with all the other Lego games that have been released for the Wii this is full of hours of Lego mayhem and comic mischief. This is what has taken up the largest majority of our time in the last two weeks.
Q: What have I been up to lately?
A: Apparently not much.
I'd like to say that John and I have been busy, but the truth is, we really haven't. I cannot account for how our time has been spent these last few months, and that's not just because I can't remember it mostly.
July has gone by really fast.
July 4th came and went, and came and went, and came and went for three days this year, and I thought the holiday would never end. But finally it did, and I bid adieu to fireworks for another year. (oh, how I love fireworks.)
July 8th was my mother-in-laws birthday and the family (minus father Evans and Devin) went to dinner at Pepperbelly's (one of my favorite places to eat in Kaysville) and had a great time. It's always nice to spend time with family. Before we went to dinner though we had to stop at Wal-Mart and pick up a Site-to-Store order, and let me just tell you have annoying that was. First of all, the site to store desk is all the way at the back of the store. Why they can't just have it at the front by the Layaway counter is beyond me. then it took the fellow like 10 minutes to even answer the page to come back and help us. Ugh! if it wasn't for the fact that I couldn't find this mulit-media storage case anywhere else I wouldn't have put in the effort... but now I know for next time.
July 9th was the official 1 year mark of john's major dino-flu attack and he has not had any issues since then. his neurologist has taken him off his medication and deemed him not crazy any more... I guess only time will tell.
July 10th I put together previously mentioned mulit-media storage case and rearranged all the CD's I own. (I have more than I thought) But now there are all sorts of empty spaces in the shelves... I guess its time for more CD's I'm not fond of digital copies, I like to have a hard copy of things I love.
July 13th U2 announced the rescheduled dates for their US tour! This time we got Becca a ticket too. U2 Posted THIS REALLYY AWESOME VIDEO on U2.com that seriously almost made me tear up a little... and I got really sick at work and had to go home early.
July 14th John went to the doctor for some cough medicine. Why? Well, John came down with a cold at the end of June that has stuck around and I had my turn with it a few weeks ago. John is still coughing, but other than that he is much better, and so am I. At the end of June my brother and his wife had a baby. Her name is Sophie and she is adorable. We have yet to go over and really become acquainted with Miss Sophie since we have been in and out of illnesses for the last three weeks.
July 16th was a "Pioneer Celebration" at the Conference Center here in Salt Lake City. Really it was a Celebration of 100 years of Broadcasting for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir... but that meant overtime for john, and I got to ride the Frontrunner Train for the first time. All very exciting. It was 104 degrees outside when I finally made it home 1.5 hours after being dropped off at the station in Downtown Salt Lake, nice that I chose the hottest day of the year so far to walk the half mile to my house. Icky! I made it home without dying, and had a nice quiet evening to myself with my laptop and a large glass of ice water.
July 17th I cleaned out my kitchen. I could not believe how much canned food I had in my cupboards that I never used. I think the oldest expiration date was 5/2003 and the newest was 6/2008. ewww. I'll be more conscious of expiration dates for a while. You would not believe how much I threw out! And if felt so good. I have started a new philosophy in life and food. "Eat Food. Not Too Much. Mostly Plants." That means that all that canned stuff (even the non-expired stuff) isn't really in the philosophy. John and I really want to be healthier people and I think this was a step in the right direction.
... and now it is the week of July 24th. john doesn't have to work on the 23rd since he works for the Church Office Building he gets the day off for the holiday. I don't. But since the "holiday" is on a Saturday this year I get to participate in Evans family fun ... unless my family decides to do something.
And that will be the end of the month for us.
Sophie's baby blessing will be on August 1st (the 9 year anniversary of my coming home from my mission) and it looks like the entire Pears family will be in town for the event (minus my nephew Jon) I'm really hoping that it WILL be the who family it's been years since I have seen Kim. And the Melot's are coming as well.
As for other things...
I've spent the month writing on a novel that may or may not ever be sent to an agent for publishing, 
I have rekindled my love of writing, and unearthed some characters whom I thought would never see the light of day and explored new worlds from my own imagination and that of others. 
I've also gotten in touch with old friends whom I have loved and lost for a while, and reacquainting myself with others who have not been so lost just out of touch.
I've reaffirmed that I'd like to live by the pirate code "Take what we want, give nothin' back" and to be a little happier with who I am, what I do and why I am alive.
Current Music:
Dave Matthews Band - Under the Table and Dreaming

That is my favorite game! "What is in your bowling bag?"

Silly Cats

They have come to an agreement.

Old Memories

Olde English Madrigals and Folk Songs At Ely Cathedral
John Rutter & Cambridge Singers

Come Away, Sweet Love

I sang a lot of John Rutter music in my high school choirs. I grew to love his music and it some how defines my teenage years. Oddly enough. My years as a youth were not filled with loud music and fast times, it was sweet and calm and a little classical.
I had always wanted to be a Madrigal, the elite choir of Davis High School, but I never made it. However, my love of this genre of music is still my favorite. I love old music. Elizabethan, Madrigals, anything from the Renaissance era. This collection of songs is one of my favorite from beginning to end.
Just a few of my favorites on this disk are:
Weep, O Mine Eyes - I sang this in Choir one year
Now Is The month Of Maying - I didn't sing this in choir, but I know all the words from listening to others sing it.
April Is In My Mistress' Face - Another one I sang in my old days.
Mother, I Will Have A Husband - Never sang this one and never knew of it until this CD, and I love it.
Greensleeves - Always a favorite of mine ... which leads to a silly story:
Greensleeves came up on iTunes the other day and John said to me, "What is this?" and I responded that it was Greensleeves and the name of the album and then suddenly I was laughing so hard that I nearly choked to death on my dinner because it was "John Rutter." Long ago in the past when I still sang in a choir as a senior in high school my friend Carrie and I created the lie that John Rutter was our father.
Needless to say, we were a couple of silly girls... but what do you expect?
After all, John Rutter is my father.

Songs I have sung:

"Out on the Mira"
By Allister MacGillivray

Out on the Mira on warm afternoons
Old men go fishing with black line and spoons,
And if they catch nothing they never complain,
And I wish I was with them again

As boys in the boats call to girls on the shore,
Teasing the ones that they dearly adore
And into the evening the courting begins,
And I wish I was with them again

Can you imagine a piece of the universe
More fit for princes and Kings
I'll trade you ten of your cities For Marion Bridge
And the pleasure it brings

Out on the Mira on soft summer nights
Bonfires blaze to the children's delight
They dance round the flames singing songs with their friends,
And I wish I was with them again.

And over the ashes the stories are told
Of witches and werewolves and Oak Island gold.
Stars on the riverface sparkle and spin.
I wish I was with them again

Out on the Mira, the people are kind -
They'll treat you to homebrew, and help you unwind.
And if you come broken they'll see that you mend
I wish I was with them again

Now I'll conclude with a wish you go well.
Sweet be your dreams, and your happiness swell.
I'll leave you here for my journey begins,
I'm going to be with them again.

She escaped


I miss the Mississippi... and You.

This album was released back in August 1997 (I was 18 years old) and I just barely added it to my collection last week. The songs on the album are older then my grandma yet pleasantly pleasing to even modern music lovers.
The Songs of Jimmie Rodgers - A Tribute
Dreaming With Tears In My Eyes - Bono
Songs of Jimmie Rodgers - TributeAny Old Time - Alison Krauss & Union Station
Waiting For A Train - Dickey Betts
Somewhere Down Below The Mason Dixon Line - Mary Chapin Carpenter
Miss The Mississippi And You – David Bell
My Blue Eyed Jane – Bob Dylan
Peach Pickin' Time Down In Georgia – Willie Nelson
In The Jailhouse Now – Steve Earle & The V-Roys
Blue Yodel # 9 - Jerry Garcia, John Kahn, David Grisman
Hobo Bill's Last Ride - Iris Dement
Gambling Bar Room Blues - John Mellencamp
Mule Skinner Blues - Van Morrison
Why Should I Be Lonely - Aaron Neville
T For Texas - Dwight Yoakam
Did you know that Jimmie Rodgers (1897 - 1933) is considered "The Father of Country Music" and that he was one of the first three people elected into the Country Music Hall of Fame? I didn't know anything about this man until I stumbled upon this album.
I'll admit, the reason I bought this album is because Bono's cover of "Dreaming With Tears in My Eyes" is so hauntingly beautiful and poignant that I had to have it. I had a :38 second clip of it on my computer for years and had forgotten about it until I was cleaning the junk out of iTunes. So I searched out this song.. it was a little difficult because the little file in iTunes was only named "dream" but after looking a bit I found this album...
I almost didn't buy the whole thing because I could just get the one MP3 on Amazon if that was what I wanted... but I was in a buying mood, and I'm sure glad I did.
from what I have read Jimmie is listed as country music, although I would really place the songs on this album in the rhythm and blues category or maybe ragtime. there are songs on this album that remind me very much of the music from "The Princess and the Frog" (the Disney movie that came out recently) but then again, since this came first I guess I have to say that the music from the princess and the frog reminds me of this music. Either way - I love it. It's got that southern feel to it that makes you just want to grab your banjo and join in the fun, or put on your flapper dress and do the Charleston.
Some of my favorites:
"Dreaming With Tears in My Eyes" is my favorite song on this album, not just because Bono sings it, but because it really is just that good. It is the song of lost love and how losing that took his sunshine away. Sweet and sad, and very nice.
"Blue Yodel No. 9" was selected as one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.
"Somewhere Down Below The Mason Dixon Line" this song is just fun.
"Miss The Mississippi And You" next to Dreaming with tears in my eyes, this is my 2nd favorite song on the album. This is the one that reminds me the most of the princess and the frog – so much so, that I was sure it was in the movie, but it's not, just another song like it. 
"Hobo Bill's Last Ride" This is a sad little song about Hobo bill who died on the train, but he had a smile on his face. I also love the voice of Iris Dement on this song, it's very fitting to the era it was written in.
