Can Someone Explain to Me . . .

1) When conference weekend became a holiday on the level of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter?

2) Why everyone (meaning college students) just have to go home for conference weekend? Am I hearing something different here in Logan than I would in Tremonton? Or if the whole being-married-now thing voids that, was I hearing something different in Cedar City?

3) What genius came up with ladies' night at Deseret Book? Seriously - bunches of women at "the Lord's bookstore" spending tons of money whilst their husbands are all at a religious meeting being counseled to stay out of debt? That, my friends, is irony exemplified. Whoever came up with it = marketing genius! (note - I've never heard Deseret called that . . . but it was such an easy shot. And I'm sure there are people who call it that. And who would never dare set foot in such a secular, heathen place as something like Borders or something. I hope I never meet these people.)

Oh, and - yay Brigham City! Your thirty minute drive to the Logan temple has just been dropped to five! Of course such suffering and sacrifice to go to the temple should be celebrated on facebook with mini-parties like they were holding in Rio yesterday! All those Mormons in Africa have it soooooo easy - they only have three temples to choose from!

Okay, that is all.

P.S. Mark this one on your calenders, kiddies - I'm actually going to apologize if I happened to offend anyone today. I stand by my opinions, but the sarcasm bug bit me pretty hard today, so my phrasing may be offensive to someone. Although I certainly hope not.

P. ost S. cript
It's so refreshing to find Mormon comedians who are actually funny. And this guy left me having flashbacks to my childhood . . . in a good way. :-) Plus, Panda is freaking delicious!!!


  1. Everybody went home for Conference weekend, if they lived close enough, even back when I went to college.

  2. Really? Why? I just don't get it . . .

  3. I used to always go to Ladies night. I loved it! I still would consider going actually. They give away prizes, and LDS artists perform. Des Book actually has authors, artists, etc. there all day so you can get books signed between sessions. Ridiculous Marketing genius? Perhaps. But I've always enjoyed ladies night anyway. :)

  4. Yeah, I thoroughly enjoyed it too, the couple of times I've gone. I just love the irony. :-)
