I jump, you jump, we all jump for Jack!

I have yet another hilarious comment from Brant today. Since I got home yesterday, there have been many Brant-isms worth recording, but I can't remember all of them. This one got me, though.

We were at his house watching conference, and because Brant's dad is part of the stake presidency, the missionaries came over to watch conference. We were all talking to them and having this discussion about how Mississippi is the third most uneducated state (apparently...this isn't a statistic according to Kayleigh, so if you're from Mississippi don't shoot me). Brant was talking it up and saying how a really good medical school is in Mississippi. Then he said, "Ya, and so is Yale." I looked at him and said, "Yale? As in Yale University?" I wasn't sure if I actually heard him right. He said, "Ya, isn't Yale in Mississippi?" I was like, "No, Brant. It's in Connecticut." Haha. He kills me.

By the way, conference today....wow. Really good. I'm not just saying that to sound all righteous and all that jazz for watching it (because honestly...you can think what you want to about me) but I just had to acknowledge how exceptionally good it was today!

When we got back to my house, Whit wanted to watch Titanic, and to her dismay, she found out I didn't have it. I turned on my television to see if anything was on, and lo and behold, Titanic was on in ten minutes! So, we sat down and watched it for about two hours when all of a sudden, it takes a commercial break or something and BAM! Major League Baseball decided to take over. Whitney looked at the TV and says, "I watched two hours of the boring part of the movie and when it starts getting good, BASEBALL comes on?" It was hilarious. The TV ended up fixing itself by some miracle, but I thought it was way funny.

Good times, good times.

Oh, Titanic. I loved living in Provo when that came out. Rated R= bad. Bare breasts on screen for 5 minutes, but PG-13? Good.

Haha that's pretty much awesome. I could totally see Whitney freaking out about it, too... I miss you guys! When are you coming up here like you say you will, hmm?

I can't decide which is more boring, baseball or Titanic...

We got it edited and were so excited to finally see what all of the furor was about...

I still don't know.

That was infuriating. I still talk about it to this day.
