Let the Record Show...

That at the time of my vicious public attack and embarrassment, by (as it turns out) a deep rooted cell of conspiracy and ill will of nearly all my friends and family, I was trying to take a nice photo of Jen and her father in the Pulpit at HSBC. No good deed goes unpunished.

Think about this...

OK...so maybe a diaper is standard procedure for most astronauts taking along trip...but driving 900 miles...she had to stop for gas at least once...I think you could spare a few seconds to run into the ladies room.

I just can't wait to hear what part the "rubber tubing" was going to play in this whole love triangle/bathroom humor saga...

"Do you know these people like you think you do?"

By "Picturing Life Perfects" author Jen Cleaver

I have been listening closely in the last five years we've lived in Springfield (or surrounding areas), and I have noticed that each of you have your own unique ways of expressing yourselves. You each have your own phrases or words that describe what goes on those little minds of yours. I have paid careful attention and managed to remember and collect a few of these. No feelings are meant to be hurt, after all, when your a girl who's favorite word is "puh" , you can't exactly make fun of others for their favorites. Some of the most noticeable, or often said, I have decided to publish on my much desired, highly acclaimed, once in a lifetime Hillenblog guest blog. They are in no particular order......

Gary Wilson....."exactly"

Matt Burch...."can I get one for free"

Rachel Burch..."thanks" and "I"m sorry" (usually apoligizing for Matt)

Tom Demers...."I can do that"

Jonny Jeppsen...."uuummmm" (pay close attention,you'll hear it)

Christ Talburt...."You'll never guess what happened to me today"

Greg Roy...."Here's the deal"

Mark Hillenburg...."how can I make a mountain out of that mole hill"
(okay maybe he doesn't say it, but I'm positive he thinks it)

Joe Reynolds...."oh your kidding me"

Cindy Hillenburg...."MARK!!!"

These were just a few of you folks, if I have forgotten any, feel free to add them, if I have not put you on here, it may be that you need to find a favorite word. Thanks to Mark for the honor of expressing myself on the one and only Hillenblog.
