Shay's SO SHAY-MLESS 101

For starters the 2 main reasons that are listed below, which seem to have ranked me in the 'SHAY'MLESS category...

  • I have told myself ever since the dairy air shots in the magazines, the random hook ups in hot tubs with college guys, hitting up every single bar from Vegas to Miami, the shots of her driving while the kiddies were not in their car seats, and the frequent hit and runs..(ok so you know the American Dream I am speaking of, Ms. Britney Spears-Federline herself) that I wouldn't support her any longer....but I just purchased her latest CD album entitled BLACKOUT...and I admit I'm addicted!
  • Recently I threw a Halloween party this past weekend, and the main event for the night was BUNKO! (If you have never played it before, let me know and I will make sure to invite you to the next one) I'd also like to mention that I purchased the prizes that would be ultimately be given away that night. I'm such a nice friend right? Wrong! So as the night went on I wasn't doing very well at all...I was on my way to winning the LOSER prize. As it came time for the last round, I rolled 2 whole bunkos in a row!! Putting me at a total of 6 Bunkos for the night, not bad right? So as a result, the scores were counted and to my dismay I ended up winning the BUNKO prize, a Movie Theater Popcorn Gift Basket full of candy, popcorn and 2 passes to Jordan Commons. I was pretty stunned that I started off so terribly, but ended up winning the big prize at the end. Come to find out, my cousin, who was in 2nd place for most Bunkos tells me "I like it how you plan this party, and end up winning your own prizes that you bought" HEY! Its not my fault that I have the midas touch when it comes to rolling the dice!

If I left out any particular instance, where I was LAME whilst in your presence, by all means, feel free to comment on it. I will make sure to add it to the next list that I am sure will be right around the corner.

Anyone up for seeing my "DANCEY DANCE?"

Prepare For Trouble...Make It A Double!

I'm on the road, on the road...

I've built a team, and been training all day long. I'm on the road, and I've been getting strong. Heres the plan I'm gonna head down to the forest...time to collect, some POKEMON!

So I've pretty much been MIA since the end of summer, otherwise known as the end of life as I knew it. Summer has always been a time for me to soak in the sun and revive those dead personality cells within this wholesome, pure, white body of mine. I have always considered getting back into the game called BLOGGING, but never thought there was a point. Until a good friend of mine said, pretty much WTF whats up with the absenteeism?

I've always been a good boy at making sure I'm never tardy or absent, except maybe from those service projects (another name I like to call manual labor) at the Red Butte Gardens or Wasatch Community Gardens, fastening together my homegrown compost from my own feces, and having the nickname Runner Bean, ahh good times!

So the 411 on my life thus far, still has been somewhat un-eventful, except for 4 main happenings as follows:

1. Going to the American Idol Concert and Seeing Blake Lewis-IN THE BEATBOXING FLESH (see blog about the concert waaaaaay below) My very best friend Deanis Priscilla Rogers, was kind enough to accompany me to the event, and sit through bad renditions of her idol, Bono...er..was it Bon Jovi?? Well she took these GREAT pics of the man himself...the first pic hes acknowledging me trying to jump up on stage while being taken away by security.

2. Ending a 5 years streak without a car of my own and bumming rides from all my friends from here to Iowa (LOVE YOU Dean, and MEL P) and finally purchasing a 2003 Toyota Corolla LE

3. Balling my eyes out as I witnessed my younger brother, age 23, getting married to one of the most wonderful, sweet, beautiful, spunky MANTI grown girl I have had the pleasure of calling my "DAUGHTER-IN-LAW" (long story haha)

4. After living 26 years of a good life thus far, making a HUGE life changing choice to get an eye-exam, which ultimately resulted in fastening on a pair of glasses after 26 years of believing I had the best eyesight around. Apparently the cornea in my right eye is shaped like a football, otherwise called a "stigmatism" and using my left eye to pretty much see everything from here to CHINA, (which I've still never been too, but now I can finally experience life to its fullest!)

That sums up the past few months and the important happenings as to WHY exactly I have been absent from the blog-bidness. I am working on taking the Postal Exam to go Career and receive GREAT BENEFITS, and MORE MONEY! But I have told myself that my life will not be one of a postal worker, licking stamps, and sorting letters to Santa. I still plan on finishing the Bachelors Degree I started at the University of Utah and living life as it happens.
