Recent Discoveries: Surprising, Embarrassing, Horrifying

1. I LOVE Anne of Green Gables (suprising)

2. A large percentage of the people I hung out with in high school ended up on the folk dancing team (embarrassing)

3. I have a HIDEOUS right profile (horrifying)

4. I am extremely attracted to Mike in a polo shirt (surprising for me, horrifying for him, as he associates polo shirts with MBA students at BYU--no offense)

5. Parent/tot swim lessons are not my cup of tea (embarrassing)

6. My "Pauls don't quit" family motto is backfiring on me as a result of parent/tot swim lessons (embarrassing)

7. I look terrible in capris (horrifying)

8. I love to watch Last Comic Standing (surprising)

9. I am seriously considering naming my next two children Lily and James (expected, since I just finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows)

10. I am also seriously considering naming my next child Gilbert (horrifying, but true, because of recent Anne of Green Gables discovery).


  1. About number two: WHO?????? I am stunned! It wasn't me!

    (Sarah Stanford)

  2. You're not going to name them Albus and Minevera? DMP

  3. Oh, Sarah, I could never mean you. Take a look at our high school reunion website and you'll find some folk dancers. Not that there's anything wrong with that......

  4. 1. Taliatha and I just went through an Ann kick ourselves last Fall. Doesn't she just brighten up your life?

    2. Wow, who did the folk dance team? I know a lot of our fellow Bulldogs were on the ballroom teams.

    7. Me too.

    9. I got mired down in book 4. Is 7 good enough that I should finish 4, 5 & 6 just to get to it?

  5. Rob, you need to unmire yourself and get on the Harry Potter trolley. Book 7 is freakin' AMAZING. 5 and 6 are freakin' AMAZING too, if you ask me.

  6. I too love Last Comic Standing. I laugh my head off. There is only one problem with the show. They get you hooked and then when the champion is crowned, you never see them again. Do you know where Josh Blue is from last year? Me niether. See.

  7. Hoss! I'm getting really T.O.'ed about the Harry Potter spoiler in your sidebar. This isn't helping your fight to get me to read them all.

  8. I had a great uncle named Paul Gilbert, FYI.

  9. Neil and I are seriously considering naming our kids Vito, Fredo, Connie and Sonny.

  10. Don't use Sonny, Marcy--he'll turn out to be a hothead.

  11. Marcy D,
    If you knew me at all then you'd know that I have been shedding tears for Severus Snape since book 5. That sidebar is no spoiler. You are just reading into it. I love the idea of Godfather names--but Kacy is right: no hotheads.

  12. The original Anne of Green Gables movies are great, but the two latest movie editions where the actors playing Ann and Gilbert are in their 40s but really only 5 years or so has passed, (wink, wink) is ridiculous. I couldn't even watch them. They departed from the books so terribly.

    And nobody looks good in capris. We all wear them anyway--just like neon in the 80s.

  13. I really hope you're serious about Gilbert. And I hope you're planning to call him Gil.
