Do You Know The Difference Between A Loaf of Bread and a Stick of Butter?

No? You don't?
-Well-we're not sending you to the grocery store.

What time is it?
-Ten to.
Ten to what?
-Ten to your own business.

Those are jokes that my Grandpa used to tell. Today would have been his 100th birthday! By the time I had any reliable sort of memory, Grandpa was pretty old, but I still remember him as being one of the most loving people, while simultaneously teasing everyone in sight.

Also, on a completely unrelated note, I watched my very first Star Wars movie this past weekend. Please don't ask how I made it to age 23 without ever having seen these-just accept it. Fact is, I always said that I was never really avoiding the movies, but for some reason or another they didn't manage to make it on my list of things to watch. Well, in the first minute of the movie I realized that I had, in fact, been avoiding these movies, albeit subconciously. Bother. As it turns out, it wasn't bad (episode IV)...I even kinda liked it, although I was completely unprepared for Obiwan to die so soon; I thought he'd at least wound Darth or something. Lame. Also, if you haven't seen the movie and I just ruined it for you, I'm sorry. But apparently there are 3 prequels you can go watch that he'll be in.

Anyway, the point of all this is to let everyone know that Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Zac Efron are twins. Seriously-I could not stop thinking this for the whole movie. When Luke was trying to blow up the Starship (or whatever it was) I kept expecting him to break out singing "Bet on Me! Bet on Me!"

I am not even going to lie about the full-on crush that I have on Zac Efron... seriously though... he does kinda look like Luke Skywalker... and that's awesome.

Okay, I have never would've gathered that the two look alike. They definitely do. PS...are you a High School Musical fan??? Just guessing.

Funny stuff barbs. So what you are saying is that you have a crush on Luke? They look pretty similar in those pics. So, I started reading those quotes out loud, and Joe was like "hey, you can't tell me my own Grandpa's jokes." He had no idea what I was reading, but he knew they were your grandpa.

It has been a week or so since I checked back here and I'm so glad I did. So much fun stuff like swollen ankles, IS ads (which I NEVER was even part of a photo shoot in my 3 1/2 years of working there), Star Wars, and High School Musical. How cool are you? I am surprised that Hannah Montana made your list of things you like, but not Mary-Kate and Ashley...And something random - I left a message for Buffy this morning. I just made friends with a lady in our ward that is friends with Buffy and has been getting her haircut from her for like 4 years (Brielle Carter). Small world. Anyway, she gave me her number cuz I need a haircut mucho.

Holy cow, I can't believe you actually watched a science fiction movie!!! I will say, the next one is my 3rd favorite, and the last one is my MOST favorite!!! And yeah, they are totally the same!!!!!! I'm glad you finally watched Star Wars so you could make me aware of that amazing fact!

you for sure need to watch the sixth movie, because I think you would like the Ewoks. they are the bear-like dealies. I used to make fun of how they walked....and then I got pregnant. so no mocking now! and I think Zac is tons hotter, ps.
