So, have to hear the story of the ambulance and which famous person did you get to meet? Isn't this fun!

Well, I got into an accident in my roommates Geo Metro (I'll never ride in a metro again). I got hit in the face with the air bag because I had been leaning forward looking out the windshield. Anyways, they took my in the ambulance and put a neck brace on my just in case. I was ok, just had a super swollen face and some minor burns from the chemicals on my face and neck. I looked like a planet of the apes monkey-guy! I do remember that the EMT was hot though :) And, while in MO when I was younger, L. Tom Perry came and spoke to three wards, ours included. We got to go up and talk with him and he signed our scriptures. He may not be pop culture famous, but he's LDS famous.

Oh, an amendment to my list. I HAVE saved a life; I have given blood and that saves lives. I was reminded of this today when I saw a red cross commercial. So go give blood and save some lives this holiday season!!!

Okay, I won't ask about the skinny dipping, but I would like to know which animal you killed, gutted, skinned, cooked and ate! Something from your dad's freezer doesn't count! ha-ha!
