The elder's quorum in my ward has weekly spotlights.

This means that when we first came into the ward we wrote down things that no one really knows about us, and each week they read one or two, and everyone tries to guess who it is they are talking about.

I was spotlighted this week. Little did I know that I would have to prove to everyone that what I said was true... :)

Just real quick here are some fun things about me that people don't know:

1. Sometimes when people talk to me I think about the muscles that are moving their mouth.

2. I know how to do shadow puppets. (This they needed proof)

3. I have a fake laugh that makes other people laugh.

4. I have really outrageous and funny dreams. ("oh, really?" they asked. "Yes, I dreamed my arms were shrinking last night," I replied.) Almost thrice weekly.

I can't remember what I put for the fifth one, but I am sure it was witty, unique, and awesome.

Middle of the Night Notes

Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night and really needed to write something important down?

That used to happen to me all the time. I used to keep a stack of post-it notes next to my bed to be ready when I remembered something important.

Just real quick, here is one of those middle of the night notes.
I think I was really tired. And yet I wonder, who is Blabalata?

You know you are writing an 8 page research paper

When you take a nap before class and dream that your arm is being attacked by Retinoic Acid and Cyp26b1 genes are deactivating the Retinoic Acid that is trying to make the bones in your arm grow shorter.

That happened to me during my quick nap. I fell asleep after spending about an hour researching bone/limb development.

Fear not. My limbs are normal size and not shorter.
