Five things

1. Is pumpkin chocolate chip bread a Utah thing? Or a Mormon thing? Last night we were with a group of friends and none of them had ever heard of it. I’d never had a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie until I moved to Utah (thanks to Donna E.), but I was only 12, so that doesn’t mean much.

2. Last week I discovered that a friend of mine had never heard of Kim Kardashian. I’m still trying to figure out how a 30-something American girl could not know Kim K..

3. If you have a food blog, I think one photo of the food is enough. No need to have 10 different photos of the same thing from different angles. Annoying.

4. I’m not sure why people make up names for their children.

5. If you are a pedestrian and are j-walking in front of my car, waving to me isn’t going to make it ok that you are j-walking. I’ll still be mad at you for stealing my right-of-way, despite your friendly wave.

    Well even if you like pumpkin chocolate chip bread, if you don’t like made up names, you aren’t very utah mormon. What’s wrong with you?
    What I dislike even more than made up names, is names that are impossible to pronoun based on the spelling. I like names that follow rules phonetics, sure my spelling is slightly off, but its still pronoun-able.

    1. I don’t know.
    2. I do not know who Kim Kardashian is.
    3. It’s kind of like the moms that put 10 of the almost same picture of their kid. 🙂
    4. Like nicknames or create names by combining letters?
    5. Ha ha.

      2. What?!
      4. Creating names by combining letters.
      For example: I have a friend who named her child a totally ridiculous name that she completely made up. This bothers me because:
      a) It’s stupid sounding
      b) In Sweden, they eat these really long, skinny, nasty pieces of pig meat. The little girl’s name is the same word for the meat, plus a few extra letters. As a nickname, the mom drops the extra letters and calls her daughter the exact word for the meat. Gross.

    Still don’t know who that is. But I have a feeling I wouldn’t really care to know.
