Calling all Travelers

Did you know that so far one person is definitely coming to visit me in New Zealand? Yep. ONE. Of all the people I know.

She bought her plane tickets yesterday. I am so excited for her to come at the end of November.

I spent some time looking online for plane tickets yesterday, just to see, and do you know what? I found roundtrip tickets from Salt Lake City to Christchurch for only $1000! That is a steal! So, get on the ball, folks! Come over here and visit us while you have the chance to have free lodging and food!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm going to Australia again at the beginning of May. I just sent off my passport info to the person who buys plane tickets for our company, and it was so exciting looking through my passport at my one visa and two stamps! I know, it's only two. But eventually there will be lots more than two! And I just get so happy thinking about it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And here's a little meme I felt like doing. No need to also do it. I won't judge you if you don't:

Four jobs I have had in my life:

Cashier at a grocery store, Stir-fry cook, Peer Mentor, Linking Team Lead on an extraction project

Four movies I've watched more than once:

Beauty and the Beast, Little Women, Dr. Strangelove, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban

Four Places I have lived:

Texas, Utah, New Zealand. Really, I've only ever lived in three places. I guess you could say I lived in Provo and Orem, but they are practically the same place.

Four T.V. Shows that I watch:

None right now. Really. NONE. I do watch the highlights of American Idol each week. And if I lived in the states I would watch The Office. But that's all.

Four places I have been:

New York City, Seattle, San Diego, New Zealand

Four Favourite Foods: (You'll have to excuse the ridiculous spelling, this was sent to me by a Kiwi, and I felt I should keep it in its original form.)

Salad, Ice Cream, Lamb, Bread

Four Places I would like to visit:

Jerusalem, Washington D.C., Florence, Prague

Four things I am looking forward to this year:

Going to the Barrier Reef, temple week in Hamilton, trip to Milford Sound, eating lots of lamb

How can you look forward to eating lamb when it's nauseating? Blah.

A couple things:
1 - I'll pretend you didn't put an apostrophe in that "its"...you'll find it now, you'll see, you'll regret, you'll edit? Maybe
2 - I sent you that meme, and I am quite proud. I usually ignore them, but that one tempted me.
3 - Isn't it funny that you find the spelling of "favourite" so unusual? It comes right after the word "four", and in your accent, OR mine, the syllable with the "OUR" is pronounced the same. Fascinating. You must look up the Flight of the Conchords clip about "more logical spelling".

Hah! I've hardly met ANYBODY who has seen Dr. Strangelove (or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb), especially more than once. I like you better all the time.

I'm with the cooks. I like the Anglicized spelling, and the pronunciation of many English words in the "mother" tongue. Like "again" that sounds like gain instead of gin (hard g).

PS Don't be surprised if you get "home" to Utah and the accents are so harsh they will almost sound offensive. Especially small towns in Northern Utah. Ick.

You tempt me with the idea of such cheap plane tickets... Ahh, if only I didn't have school during the summer!
