i had to get out of bed to blog this

I used to be the Provo rollidex. I had nearly every friends phone number in Provo up until about 2 years ago, then Provo got too big to know everyone so I couldn't/didn't want to keep up. Tonight I was bored and decided to clear up some of the clutter in my phone and I was blown away by all the numbers I had from the old days. Now that I think of it, Chris Coy did an art piece for the LP show that Eva threw when I first moved to Provo. It was just everybody's phone numbers on a piece of white board. That piece was very indicative of who was hot at the time. I loved it. Anyway, tonight I erased numbers such as the pink house, pizza pipeline, melissa tripiani, chris allman's dad cell, chris allman's house line, cullen's house line, bishop howell, morgan handley, ellen, jefferson, andy martin, and casey lesuer Okay, maybe I still have the pizza pipeline number, it has a different name every 6 months, but the number is always the same. Does anybody know if it is still called something that has to do with a dragon?

That art piece was my debut into the social workings of Provo, Chris Coy put my phone number on that and it was very controversial because no one knew who I was! Sooo funny. But after that I met you and Karl because of Andy, the rest is history.

that show was the beginning of the end of the golden days of provo... at least for me. btw...it's funny, but i don't even remember that piece. probably because i was so flustered trying to make sure that it all went smoothly. or maybe because i wasn't on it and so i blocked that memory out? who knows.

p.s. i remember when we all used to have written lists of phone numbers next to our land lines or wadded up in our wallets...and we made fun of the one friend we had who actually owned a cell phone.
