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...
