i have this new idea

about a blog. I've always secretly wanted to have a blog like "PostSecret," "Seriously, So Blessed," or "Things White People Like." Why? Eh - it's that random drive to want to do something pretty cool that the rest of the world thinks is witty and cool, too.

I had an idea today. You see, my best friend and I were driving in a car to his house. We walked to the back parking lot, he opened my door, i unlocked and opened his and as we pulled away I glanced at the "100.3" on the radio/clock display. "Hmm..." i thought "is this one of those channels that plays random LDS music on Sunday afternoons?" And as though the radio waves had read my mind, a most peculiar rendition of Beethoven's 9th symphony began to play. A. There were words to it. And they were "original lyrics," mind you. 2. It was an acoustic guitar and the steriotypical LDS sound of a breathy female-type voice with just a little croaky grumble at the start of each phrase. I said "That's Beethovens 9th. Sick." And best friend turned off the radio immediately. He said "Eh, Mormons do tacky things."

And i think that's what i would call my blog if I were to indulge in the desire to start a SarcastyWittyPopularCatchyTrendyCoolNewBlog. "Tacky things that Mormons do." Or simply, "Mormons do Tacky Things."

Topics may inlcude:
1. many a post about tacky LDS music
2. many a post about the subculture of engagements, marriage and the pressures therein (DON'T get me stah-ted.....)
3. the perfectionist complex and the ever-uncomfortable judgements being passed (i.e. my testimony must not be very strong because i only got a B in my Book of Mormon class, or feeling like an old maid at age 22. So bizarre.)

Please, feel free to add some of your own ideas.

I think i'd made the layout all TrendyCool, you know. Typewriter fonts and black and whites. Or i could indulge in the glory of what is Tacky Mormon culture and make it look as scrap-booky as possible.

...we'll see.


  1. ha ha ha!! This sounds awesome. Can I be a co-writer? :D

    This will be the 3rd greatest blog ever -- behind ours, of course. ;)

  2. P.S. Making fun of the random LDS artists is our favorite 'activity' (ha...) on Sundays as we drive. It brings just.....*sniff*....SO much JOY into our hearts. Our lives are changed forever!!!
