I've always envied people who live on these fancy street names like Paradise Lane, Friendship Circle, Daisy Drive, etc. Alright most street names aren't that cheesy, but I did see the Friendship Circle one this week. True story. I'm not entirely sure where this desire came from, but nevertheless, eventually I will live on Wallaby Way! I should start taking pictures of awesome street names..... yup I'm now going to start doing that! So, if any of you see an awesome street name take a picture and send it to me! Maybe I'll make a sweet collage out of all of them. Now the wheels are turning....oh the possibilities!
Yeah, I have that. I also act like a blonde sometimes. Shocking? Not really. Well yesterday I had the awesome opportunity to go to the Jazz v. Miami Heat game!! It was a freaking awesome game and so cool to see Lebron and D-Wade (even if they looked like little ants from our seats). In order to score the sweet tickets, we had to attend a little IT presentation about "Big Data" before the game. What is Big Data you ask? I couldn't tell you, I was able to follow along for about, oh, ..................that long. The information I did understand was fairly interesting, but for the most part I felt pretty stupid sitting there with a bunch of IT guys.
Well one guy on our table was being polite and asked us where we were from. Of course I have no manners and pipped right up and said, "I'm from Mapleton!" with a big grin on my face. The guy looked at me for a second, raised his eyebrows then turned to my date and said, "Oh, I meant what company are you from."
Wow I felt like such an idiot. Of course he didn't care where I was residing, he wanted to know why we were there at an IT presentation and what company we were representing. Oh yeah and did I mention I was on a blind date with someone I met on LDS singles? Yeah.... That was a big golden start for me. Thankfully the presentation started shortly thereafter and I was able to occupy myself with the delicious potatoes, asparagus and steak. I should be 500 pounds for how often I have to use food as my awkward out in embarrassing situations.
Sheesh, sometimes...... I tell ya, I don't know whether my brain randomly short circuits or if deep down I'm just a bubbling idiot just waiting to surface. Hopefully it's not the latter. Still crossing my fingers on that one.
