All Right Then

So, I delivered my talk at church this morning. I think it went all right. I cried and stuff. I mean, considering I used a lot of what I’ve posted on this blog as material for the talk, people seemed to respond positively. That makes me glad.

Also, someone who really intimidates me and whose approval I’ve always wanted approached me and said that I wrote the talk and presented it well.  He said some other stuff, but I was rather shocked and surprised that he was talking to me, so I forgot what it was. We talked about teaching a little bit. I thanked him for his kindness. He thanked me. He. Hee.

It might have helped that I looked pretty cute. Not tooting my own horn. Just an observation.

The boat party last night was fun. I mean, I had a good time because I couldn’t get over voluntarily confining myself on a boat for three hours with hundreds of other church singles. There were lots of people to meet, lots of people to avoid. The music was great. The weather and the scenery were amazing. Sitting in a corner, telling stories. Fidgeting. Enjoying great company. Watching people kinda sorta fall in love. Hilarious.

Today is a glorious day. Enjoy it. 75 degrees, sunshine. Seriously.

Oh, I curled my hair last night. A friend of mine actually did it. She used a flat iron and turned my board-straight hair into a bouncy mane of springy ringlets. I didn’t take pictures, but other people did.

I thought it might be nice to have cute, curly hair for my talk this morning. But after three hours on a boat, surrounded by water and the wind rushing through my hair, and after sleeping on it, and after looking in the mirror, I decided to pull my hair back. Yeah, there was no way I was going to subject my fellow churchgoers to that. It kind of looked like a small beast was attacking my head. Maybe a cross between a tasmanian devil and a poodle. Yes.

Got a priesthood blessing today. All I gotta say is, Wow.

Nap time!

In An Hour

I’ll be heading to the Hudson River at 42nd Street to board a boat that will circle the south half of Manhattan, and that will take three hours. Good thing I’ll be with friends, because if the music is bad, I’m gonna sue. True, I had the chance to request some songs, but if you’re a decent DJ, you have to have a constant finger on the pulse of people’s preferences for dance music. 

Maybe they’ll have good drinks and snacks.

Today I wrote my talk for tomorrow. I hope it’s okay.

Today I attended a block party/tag sale our church threw at 87th Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Quite a few people passed through, and hopefully our youth raised enough money for camp this summer. It’s great to see people come together that want to help one another and love each other.

I have a feeling the vibe on the boat tonight might be a little different. Just sayin’.
