Hey folks. It's been a while. Those of you who know me, know that I'm a huge animal lover, and hate, HATE to see anything happen to them, especially dogs. So I'm asking for your help in that area, and fast!

Meet Lexus. She's a 2.5 year old red-nosed pitbull. She's spayed, all of her shots are current, is as gentle as can be, loves kids, and she needs a GOOD, LOVING home, ASAP!

She belongs to one of my oldest friends. Unfortunately my friend is going through a divorce right now, and because of that, she and her daughter are not able to take Lex with them to their new place. She HAD someone lined up to take her, but tonight, LITERALLY at the last minute, they decided they couldn't take her and backed out. So now we've got til tomorrow to find her a home! We've called the pound, shelters, rescues, etc, but apparently with the economy, people are bailing on their pets left and right, so NONE of them are taking any dogs right now. It's a pretty sad situation. She's not looking to make any money here or anything like that, just the assurance that Lexus will go to a good home where she is loved and treated like a part of the family.If any of you want her, or know anyone who does, PLEASE let me know ASAP! You can message me on here, or email me at kyleinreallife@gmail.com. PLEASE help if you can. I mean, "Tis the season", ya? Thanks for taking the time to read this everyone.

My new crush...

So, after you've been single for a certain amount of time... especially when you're already an old man... like I am... you start wondering if there is still anyone out there for you... and if she'd even be into you or not... which she probably won't... and it's a little sad... but then you meet someone, and she's stinkin cute... and funny... and a little goofy... with curly hair... which are both also stinkin cute attributes... and that's when you just KNOW, y'know? It just makes it a little rough when you only get to see her once a week... on Thursday nights... from 8-8:30pm... on NBC... Ladies and gentleman, I think I'm in love with Pam Beesley.
Edit; As per Holly's request, I've added a picture of her. Enjoy.

General Authority Blogging???

Did anyone else catch that just now? Robert D. Hales, while talking about ways of responding to argumentative and persecutory people, counsels to either walk away from the situation saying nothing, or to be kind and positive towards that person, and not to argue with them. When saying this, he gave a few examples of ways to do this. Here's where I was caught off gaurd. He said that we could, "leave a note, write a letter to the editor, LEAVE A COMMENT ON A BLOG..." I was like, "Mm hmm... good idea... yeah... wait, WHAT?" I never thought I'd see the day where I heard a G.A. talk about blogging in General Conference, and in a way that was just so nonchelaunt, as if EVERYONE knows what blogging is. It was pretty funny to me for some reason.

So it got me thinking, what if the General Authorities of the church had blogs. What would that be like? Can you even imagine?

"Thursday, October 2nd, 2008. Today I had lunch with a living prophet of God. We talked about what we're going to do this weekend. He made me laugh, a lot."

"Friday, October 3rd, 2008. Today I went to the temple to talk with the Lord, and to get the 'go-ahead' on my talk for conference. He said it's good-to-go, but try not to sound awkward when talking about this new 'blogging' thing. I'll do my best."

"Sunday, October 5th, 2008. Today I spoke to the entire world on behalf of the Lord. I told them things that He wanted them to know. I boldly, yet humbly delivered the message that the Savior gave to me for the world. I pray that they will listen to those words and improve their lives and grow closer to the Lord... Oh, and I NAILED the blogger thing. :)"

That's just the way that I imagine it would be...

So today, Boston graduated from puppy class, and in great style I might add. Not only did we actually show up to class, unlike half the class, but he actually showed that he knew how to do all the things he was supposed to have learned in class! ATTA BOY! Now I've just gotta get him to do that when he's outside of class and we'll be set! But for now, we'll take this as a small step to being a good dog! So far his most consistent trick is falling asleep on my lap while I'm driving my work truck... Well done, Boston. Well done.

I Just Don't Know

Why is it that when you think you've got everything figured out, it becomes blanantly obvious that you have NOTHING figured out?

How come when someone who you care a lot about finds themselves in the middle of a shitty situation, they are never sure what to do about it, even when the answer is so clear you just want to grab them and yell it in their face? I can't decide whether it's because it's harder to see the facts when you're in the middle of it, or because you don't WANT to admit it when you can see things right in front of your face. I just don't know...

Why is it that when the classic "timing is everything" cliche comes into play, it's never by much? It's never 10 years too late, you're never 2 hours late for work, you don't come up $40 shy on the bill; It's "A Day Late and a Dollar Short" for a reason. However, the good thing about that is that often times, you can run it as credit and come up with the $2 for the bill, you can speed up to hit the traffic lights and make it to work on time, and you can wait a few months for a potentially great thing. BUT, what if you get a ticket for the close call on that one yellow light? What if you get an overdraft fee on the account for paying for that dinner? What if you pass up something that was right for you, while you wait for that "potentially great" thing, and then that "potentially great" thing never pans out? Then what? Are you worse off than before? Was it worth taking the chance on it? Again, I just don't know...

It's REX!

Alright, so you know how there are random little things that, to others would be meaningless, but when you see them, it reminds you of a certain time in your life? A postcard, a toy, a song, whatever. Alright, well having a puppy tends to make you remember some of those times in your life because puppies get into EVERYTHING. They'll find things that you thought were lost for the past 6 years!
So the other day, Boston was laying in front of me on the floor, and was chewing on something that was bright green and white. I didn't think anything of it because he has a chew toy of those same colors. But then he got up and moved on to the next thing to chew on, and I could see what he was REALLY chewing on that was green and white... Do you remember Toy Story? Of course you do. And if you do, you sure remember Rex, the t-rex who tried to live up to the hype of his name, but was really pretty much the opposite. Well, that's what he was chewing on, and all of a sudden, I remembered where that toy came from.
See, when I was in 9th grade, I was kicked out of school because I was the son of a teacher who had crossed paths with administration from time to time, inadvertently putting me in the line of fire. One day I was caught eating an apple in the hallway, and suddenly I was being thrown out of school for a seemingly minor offense. Needless to say, I was dumbfounded. When I got to my new school, Taylor Jr. High, I IMMEDIATELY gained a reputation as a "bad kid" because I was kicked out of a school. I mean, I heard some of the most ridiculous stories as to why I got kicked out. Did you know I stole a police car?! Neither did I...
Anyway, so that being as it was, and me being pretty shy, I didn't bother trying to correct anyone or defend myself, and it just got worse. But amidst the constant cloud that it seemed was over my head, there were 3 people who were cool enough to ignore whatever they heard, and they were the 3 biggest reasons that I actually stayed in school. They were Karl, Mary, and LeDawn. They walked with me from class to class, ate with me, hung out with me outside of school, etc. It was more appreciated than I'm sure I ever told them, something I'll no doubt regret for life.
Well, at some point that year, one of them (I'll leave out who, incase he/she would be embarrassed) decided that I reminded them of Rex from Toy Story. I really wasn't sure how to take that. In fact, I'm STILL not sure how to take that. But I think, just to play it safe, I went with the "well good or bad, at least they were thinking of me!" tactic, and I'm sticking to it! So at some point, I think maybe for Christmas, this person gave me a small toy Rex, sort of as a token of our friendship, if you will. We laughed about it and all, but that was about it. Eventually it made it's way into a box of "old stuff" and was forgotten about. Then the other day when Boston came prancing around with it in his mouth, having found it who knows where, all of those memories, primarily good ones, came back to me about the 3 people who were nice and kind enough to go out of their way to be nice to the "new kid", even if everyone thought he was a "bad kid". I appreciate you 3 more than you know.

Can you say "choke"?

So there we were, up 4 to 3 in the 6th when I left Nando's. I walk into Molly's and guess what? We're DOWN 10-4 in the middle of the 8th! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Well, it turns out that Micah Owings walked 'em loaded, gave up 2 RBI's, then got tattooed with a grand slam! Needless to say, I was none too pleased. We pulled off a 3 run homer in the 8th, but didn't follow it up in the 9th so we still lost. Sad. Anyway, that's all. Enjoy!

I'm a proud papa!

So, I'd like you all to meet Boston. He's my new puppy, and he's awesome. He's half Rhodesian Ridgeback, half Black Lab-Rottweiller mix. I'm almost positive he's the raddest puppy ever born, although I'm still waiting for a few votes to come in...
Anyway, so this is him. Now, don't let the picture mislead you; he doesn't ALWAYS lay like a frog... just most of the time. ;) So that's him. Say hi, be nice, and don't mind the razor sharp claws and military grade armor piercing teeth. I'm told that they'll dull down a bit after the first few years of action, so let's hear it for that! YA!
I'll post more pictures as he grows up.

So, last night, after a long 2 months of disappointments, let downs, and failures, I finally had a good day yesterday. "Why?" you may ask? Well because I got A PUPPY, THAT'S WHY! He's an 8 week old puppy. His mother is a purebred Rhodesian Ridgeback, and his pops is half Black Lab, half Rottweiller. His name is Boston, and he's amazing.

I'll post pictures as I take them because the one I have now isn't being allowed to upload for some reason... Poor computer skills pwns me....
