Just because I don't want to do homework...

A week or so ago, my dad sent me this email that I will display in one moment. Usually chain emails are really dumb, for real! But this one had me laughing for a good 10 minutes straight. So for your entertainment and pleasure:


Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community.

The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies and Captain Crunch.

The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Born and bread in Minnesota , Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes.

Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

Oh when you're goin' on a date, you put on a shirt, and you the DAAATE!

Based on the title of this post I obviously went on a date tonight. But I put on more than a shirt. I put on my coat because we went to a USU hockey game. Also it has been snowing ALL day today, and tonight wasn't any different. I'm pretty sure I couldn't feel my toes the entire time but I still had fun. USU played Texas A & M, who are also the Aggies. We had a small cheering crowd that would cheer, "Let's go Aggies!" I hope they weren't cheering for the other team because that would be rather foolish. We beat them 8-0 anyways. During the game, I almost got hit with a speeding hockey puck that flew over the glass and grazed my hair. It was kind of intense. It would have been cool to get a black eye from it, but seeing as I have an engineering conference in less than a week where you have to look really nice, I'm glad I ducked.
After the game, we drove through the blizzard to a place called zeppes, and Italian ice/custard shop in Providence. We got a gelata and let me tell you it was heaven in a cup! I highly recommend anyone in the cache valley area to at least try it.
After much slipping and sliding on the road, we made it back to my place, where my date thought it would be funny to throw me in 1.5 feet of snow. It was funny for about 10 seconds, and then it was on. After a few minutes, we were both covered and freezing, so we went inside and drank some hot chocolate. I roasted his mug, so he couldn't drink it for like 5 minutes. Mine was just right... oops. It was a great date and I hope to see him in the future :)
