Birthday Poem

Oh, and here's something that absolutely makes me happy, a poem my sister Amy wrote for my birthday:

Shabby pink blanket worn half away
cutting your own hair before church on Sunday
Emo music like Augustana and the Fray

Surprise changes: quit my job! bleach-blonde hair!
Internet junkie, 99 open tabs, links everywhere
helping me pack, ridiculous photobooth pics, killer interrupted-poem glare

Strong will: no uniforms! no chocolate! no kissing! no nylons!
fiance troubles, blogging away boys, needing long-johns
old-people-lover, working long hours, Obamacons
Apparently this took her five minutes of spontaneous writing. She is talented, what can I say?


  1. She is indeed talented, but it looks like you gave her good material to work with.

  2. Hi
    I stumbled across your blog on LDS BLOGS. I thought you mighe be interested in a site my wife and I just built called MormonsMadeSimple.com, which uses simple, explanatory videos to explain the Mormon faith. Feel free to feature any of these videos on your blog, or just share them with non-member friends. We're hoping these videos will be missionary tools to help members share their beliefs. Anyway, sorry to spam your comments section. I couldn't find any contact information for you on your blog.

  3. I'm honored that I got a spot on the blog. That's #2, I think.
