Mormon Airplane Factory

Last Night I was exploring and I ended up finding an Airplane Factory in the town next to the one I live in. When I went inside I found that the people working there were Mormon Missionaries and there was an LDS Bookstore where you buy tickets- or you could get a free ticket if you listened to a short presentation that the missionaries gave. Man, people were lining up to hear the missionaries!

Kaci's Dream

Hey Kaci, what did you dream last night?
Kaci: "Play friends! Play John and Laura. Eat Ice-cream! Laura eat ice-cream. John eat ice-cream too! Make pancakes!"

Sounds like a great dream!

Going up to the Parade

So last night I dreamed that we were going up to the Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. To make the trip easier we had rented a U-Haul and I was sleeping in the back while Kerri drove. I woke up and she had parked and gone looking for some food. I got out and found that we were in a real scary area. So I just started talking to people and I was like "What city am I in?" They told me "This is Chicago man!"
I was like Oh, cool, I've never been here. Then I saw an ice-cream shop and I bought everyone ice-cream cones and sat around and talked with them while I waited for Kerri to get back. When Kerri got back and it was time for us to go, one of the guys was like, "You're all right man. I can tell you're a good person, so I'm gonna do something for you. Here. I'm gonna give you your wallet back." And handed it to me. I was like "What!?" and he told me "You're nice. But don't trust anybody." And then he walked off.

Professional Church Ball

So last night, the Harrisonburg 2nd Ward was playing a basketball game against the New York Knicks. I just went to watch, but was finally persuaded to enter the game and teach a thing or two to the Knicks. "I'm not very good" I told them, but then I got out there and right off the bat I blocked a guys shot. Then I ran down the court, they passed it to me and I made a shot. The same scenario was repeated about 5 times and I was totally the all-star! I sat there trying to figure out how I could be so good when playing against professionals -- and then came to the logical conclusion that my whole life I just haven't been playing against people who were good enough for me to show my true talent. It's probably true

Roller coasters and the Prophet by Hebbie

We are all standing in front of a amusement park and we see a man dressed in a dark blue suite, white shirt and tie.  Garrett yells out, Hey, that's Thomas S. Monson.  We all laugh and Garretts runs over to my dream the kids are all little.  He says to the Prophet, hey, aren't you Thomas S. Monson?  And the prophet says, why yes!  And who are you little fellow?  Garrettt tells him who he is and we are all standing behind them with our mouths hanging open with amazement.  Garrett:  Why are you standing out here all by yourself?  TSM:  I'm waiting for someone to pick me up.  Garrett:  Do you want to ride the rides with us?  TSM:  Yes, I think I would like that.   So we all go into the park together The Prophet in tow and we spend the day at the amusement park.  A family of 6 in matching t-shirts and jeans and Thomas S. Monson in his dark blue suite.  We all run from ride to ride, slam down lunch and ride til the park closes.  The prophet thanks Garrett for all the fun and disappears....we all stand there with out mouths hanging open in amazement

Where have the cowboys gone?

So in real life at our local Wal-mart there is this awesome looking cowboy who scares the bejeebeez out of me. He's got one of the coolest handlebar mustaches I've ever seen, and of course he also has his cowboy hat and a bandana tied around his neck. He has his cowboy boots (with spurs), cowboy pants (with belt buckle), flannel shirt, all covered by a long black leather trench coat. It's a pretty sweet get-up, but not as sweet as his car.
His car is a yellow Geo Tracker, fully loaded with gun holsters on the side, stirrups, a lasso rope, horns on the front, and a bumper sticker that says "save a horse and a geo!" I'm not making this up.

So in my dream last night, I was hanging out with the young men and we were at a restaurant/bar and this cowboy came up to us and asked us what we were doing. We told him that we were a youth group from a church and he responded (with a really great drawl),
"Well, we don't like you here. I reckon you better leave before there's trouble."
We gave it right back to him "You know, we're not to fond of you either. But we're staying right here."
Just then he lunched at someone in our group and another guy came after me. I didn't want to hurt him so I just put him in a wrestling hold so he couldn't get away (standing up). Just then a guy who had seen what happened and wasn't happy about it came up and headbutted the guy I was holding right in the face! BAM! Then he did it again and then guy went unconscious.
That's right. Don't mess with the Harrisonburg 2nd Ward.

Moving to New Zealand

So last night I was in Hawaii and Kerri and I were moving from there to New Zealand. So were a couple of our friends from Hawaii, but it was even harder for them because they were moving the same day that they were having a baby!
I called to tell them goodbye, and while we were talking my buddy was like "Hold on a second, I need to catch the baby. Woooaaahhhh! There he is! It's a boy!- Hey can I call you back in a few minutes?" I was like, "Sure thing man."
So then I just needed to take my car to the shipping dock so it could get shipped off- when I went to get my car there was this big guy working on it. I was like "Hey, what are you doing to my car?!" He just smiled at me... and then threw a wrench at my head! A dodged it barely, but could hear the whhooosh!
So I ran inside to call the cops... but Kerri was already using the phone. She was calling New Zealand to try and pre-order some candy that she really liked. And she would not get off the phone, she even scolded me for interrupting her "important phone call". I was like- There's a guy outside who tried to kill me!

The Dating Game by Hebbie

I was participating in some kind of dating program.  It was similar to the t.v. show the Bachlorette.  I dated several different guys; all shapes and  sizes.  Mostly really hunky, hot guys.  But there was one that was tall, skinny and really rather dorky.  He always wore a shirt and tie, had dark hair parted and combed to the side.  He didn't really talk much, but was up for doing anything I wanted.  I went out with all the other guys and had a blast, but when it came to the goodbye kiss...oooh! YUCKY.  The only one I liked kissing was the tall dork.  I would go out with all the other guys over and over again, but the kissing was so bad.  The only guy I really wanted to spend time with was the tall dork just because I really liked the way he kissed.  I had to go potty but I didn't want to get up until I finished the dream...  Couldn't do it, had to go relieve myself and I never did find out how things ended.  Funny, I don't even know who the dorky guy is.  Usually you dream about people you know really well, I had never seen this guy before in my life.  TOO FUNNY!

They're Here

So last night I dreamed that a very large space ship arrived at earth (much like in Independence Day), so instinctively everyone gathered together at the temples. I was on my way when I met this really goofball guy who wanted to come with me. So I let him.
Then when I got to the temple they were having a big youth activity where they were giving away these really nice MP3 players to everyone. I went in to the cultural hall and they were having a big dance, so I hopped in and taught them some dance moves and everyone was real impressed.

Mac vs PC

The debate rages on, even in dreamland.

Last night we decided to buy a Mac so that Kerri and I could each have a computer to work on. The mac was pretty cool, the screen was double sided, so that I could sit opposite of Kerri and see what she was looking at. Unfortunately the mac couldn't open word documents of anything before 2007, and it didn't get wireless. What a piece of junk! So we tried to return it and get another one.

I guess PCs really are better.

Kerri's dream

Brad is at a camp-out. I had the craziest dream last night, so in place of Brad's crazy dream, you get mine.

I dreamed that I was pregnant and that I went into labor. I was laying on our couch and Brad getting out of the shower when I yelled that I was in labor. He started running around trying to get ready to go. Then I yelled, TOO LATE. Catch the baby! Just then a pushed out a baby. Brad got there just in time to catch it. Then I three more babies came out. That's right FOUR babies, Brad caught them all! We were so shocked we both started laughing hysterically and I said, this is too crazy to be real.

Then I was pregnant again! This time when I gave birth (same scenario) the baby just popped out of my belly button. We laughed again and I said, this is too crazy to be real.

Then I was pregnant again! This time the baby was kicking around so much that at one point we could see its whole foot, toes and all. Brad came over when I told him what was happening and started tickling the foot. Then the scenario repeated and I gave birth and everything was normal this time (well as normal as giving birth on our couch could be).

As I laid there snuggling my new baby, I woke up to Kaci snuggling up to me in bed.

Back to Hawaii, again

So last night we were back in Hawaii again. It was pretty great. We were hanging out at the BYU-H library for some reason when Kaci started asking for some juice. We didn't have any, but I volunteered to run back to TVA and get some. So I just took off running at a sprint, and decided to cut through the Aloha Center (even though that would be the long way) then I grabbed some juice and ran back. Well this time in the Aloha Center there was a lady pushing a big shopping cart that just kept getting in my way. Everytime I tried to go around her she would turn and cut me off. So I finally just jumped over some couches to get around her and then she scolded me "Well, that was rude young man." And I just gave it right back to her "You want to talk about rude? Lets talk about pushing a shopping cart 1/2 a mile an hour and cutting me off any time I try to get by!" Then I just decided to forget about her and I took off running again and found Kerri and Kaci.
The End.

The Bishopric of Narnia/Australia

So last night in my dream I thought I was visiting Australia, but really I ended up in Narnia (which I found out is just South of Australia). I went to church there and started to laugh so hard when they announced the names of the Bishopric. There was Bishop Spaghetti, 1st counselor Brother Sauce, and 2nd counselor Brother Breadsticks. I laughed so hard!
Then I went outside and there was this guy who kept shooting his cap gun over and over. He offered to sell it to me for $100 but I told him no, cuz I already had one of my own. That's when he pulled me aside and was like "No way! Do you know the power of that in Narnia?" I said that I didn't, so he showed me. "In Narnia the caps are magic- watch this! If you light them on fire and then hold them close to a rock, then the rock will show you the future." "No way!" "Yes way" he told me, "And then comes the coolest part- if you sprinkle the dust from the ashes on you, then you become INVISIBLE!" And then he did it and disappeared! It was crazy!
Just then the invisible dust came in handy- because according to the law I was required to go see a movie, but I really wanted to go play rollerhockey instead. So I bought my ticket and went to the movie, then when no one was looking I sprinkled the invisible dust and snuck out so I could go play rollerhockey. It was great!

Ian, did you have a crazy dream?

Last night I dreamed about blogging my dreams. I was at my computer when one of my friends that I've known since I was 5 years old (Ian) kicked me off the computer and was like- "You think that's something? You should check out the dream that I had! I've already put it on my blog." So I was like, "Sweet, lets check it out and I'll add it to my blog." So I woke up this morning- but he really didn't post a cool dream to his blog. So Ian, if you're reading this, please do post your cool dream- or email it to me (or maybe I ought to give you a phone call).
