THE ONE WITH THE LITTLE KNOWN WENDY FACTS # 9


this one is so little known that even i forgot about it until this morning while i was on the road with kev to go and pay our storage rent....on the way to the storage place we drove by my high school and the restaurant that my freinds and i used to eat at everday for lunch....it's called rudy's and all the cool people went there......or to in-n-out.....anyways.....seeing rudy's brought back all of these memories particularly what i would typically order for my lunch.....3 tortillas and a side of salsa.....the best part about this is that it only cost $0.75 and it was actually pretty filling.....if i happened to have some more money i would instead order a bean and cheese burrito with less beans and extra cheese and i'd smother it in ketchup.....so good...now you may be wondering where the little known fact comes in so i will get to the point.....my parents very rarely gave me money for food.....i would usually have a sack lunch...so in order for me to get to enjoy delicious rudy's cuisine i would have to con it out of people.....the method i always chose....this is genius mind you......was to go around the halls of my school asking people to give me a quarter so i could call my mom on the pay phone.....i would do this over and over again until i had collected all the money i felt like i required for the day......and i would do this all of the time and usually make a fine profit.....so.....little may you know.....i am actually a con artist...i am sawyer

THE ONE WITH THE LITTLE KNOWN WENDY FACT # 8

this is going to be another weird one to some of you...much like the counting one.....so i discovered this talent i had in high school of speaking using only the first letters of every word...my freind Noelle and i would always communicate this way....we always did things like wlgc.....meaning we love grilled cheese.....basically it was always this same idea of we love something and we'd have to guess it or whatever...it was this fun thing that we would do to pass the time of high school.....i found out that i was pretty good at this way of thinking and one day i realized that i could sing the entire chorus of that american pie song (you know....bye bye miss american pie) using only the first letter of every word....so here it goes......B-B-M-A-P-D-M-C-T-T-L-B-T-L-W-D-A-G-O-B-W-D-W-A-R-S-T-W-B-T-D-T-I-D-T-W-B-T-D-T-I-D.......and there is another example of me being borderline crazy

THE ONE WITH MY FAVORITE MOVIES OF NOW AND THEN # 2

MOVIE OF NOW # 2
I absolultely love the movie Garden State

.....the characters are great...the story is great.....the writing is great......it's one of those movies that makes you happy and sad at the same time...at the end you are just happy though....which is the best...it's no fun to go away from a movie feeling all sad and depressed.....like when kev and i saw the movie Cold Mountain.....the most depressing, horrible movie ever....anyways....the other thing wonderful about this film is the soundtrack.....it is amazing....it's one of those cd's that i would want if i was on a deserted island that happened to have a cd player......this movie is rated r for a reason though so be prepared for lots o' cussing and drug stuff and a scene that should just be skipped over....other than that this is an amazing movie.....very fun and worth seeing....especially if you are a fan of natalie portman

MOVIE OF THEN #2......The Opposite Sex

this is an old musical that is so fun....as you can tell i love musicals and this has quickly become one of my favorites.....there's not a whole lot of singing in it which is nice and the story is great....basically it is about a group of rich snobby women who prey on eachother's unhappiness due to their own insecurities....but it is all done in a very catty yet fun, playful way....the clothes in this movie are amazing....some of the best dresses i have ever seen.....i could watch this movie over and over again...the only problem is that i don not own it...if i ever want to watch it i have to rent it from the RSM library... not so fun

THE ONE WITH THE LITTLE KNOWN WENDY FACT # 7


josh, you'll appreciate this......i really love listening to the Simply Youth Ministry podcasts kev started listening to them when they first started and i jumped on board shortly after....this was in like april or may i think.....anyways i listened to probably 7 episodes then...for some reason or another......stopped....about a month ago i remembered them and i started back up.....i am now on like 19 and i'm loving it.....i would listen to them while i was working at home for wine pavilion....i'd get up at 6...go on the computer...turn on photoshop....and tune into a podcast or two......it made me feel like i was in a room of freinds...very fun...now that i don't have a job i will get to listen even more.....so to josh....matt....doug....and natalie...keep up the good work....and give me a shout out why don't you

THE ONE WITH MY FAVORITE MOVIES OF NOW AND THEN #1

i wasn't kidding about the blogging more often part of my last blog and to prove this i am starting a new series about my favorite movies.....in this i will tell you of 2 movies that i love....one that is old and one that is more modern......there is no particular order here...as far as favorites go.....i don't have any official "favorite" movie.....but rather tons of movies that i love.......obviously i recommend these films as wothy of seeing if you have not already seen them......i hope you enjoy this.......

MOVIE OF NOW #1......Notting Hill

now i wouldn't call myself a lover of "chick flicks" but this one is definetly an exception to the rule...this is such a good movie....i love the characters, the english accents, the story line, and the cast.....my favorite part of this movie is the end because instead of just having a happy ending and then litterally ending it has a little montage of their lives....so you get to see them actually living happily ever after which is an important part of the story that most films do not include....to be fair there is one thing in the movie that i do not like....there is a mild love scene....there is no nudity which i appreciate and it is done tastefully.....but nonetheless it is there....all in all i highly recommend this movie....you will really enjoy it.....plus it has a great soundtrack

MOVIE OF THEN #1....SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS

this is a movie that i have loved for pretty much my entire life....i grew up watching musicals and this is one of the best if not the best...it has a great cast, great dancing, great songs, it's totally entertaining, it's so FUN......not to mention funny...there is this song in it called "Bless Your Beautiful Hide"....kev loves this song and sings it often......even if you think you don't like musicals you will probably enjoy it...it's in color and looks amazing on DVD....i will totally let you borrow it if you are interested
