Looks like I'm the last one to post on this tag...guess I lose.
I'm not sure how this works, but here goes:
Five things I was doing ten years ago:
1. Finally asking girls out to dances (instead of being set up for disaster dates by well-meaning friends).
3. AP Environmental Science (awesome class, taught by a South African LDS bishop).
4. Enjoying my high ACT score (my standardized test scores haven't been nearly as high since).
5. Going to the BYU Sci/Fi and Fantasy Symposium with Voorhies and the gang (and it became tradition).

Five things to do tomorrow:
1. Get a haircut.
2. Finish a couple of law school applications (Wake Forest and Seattle University).
3. Cook enough enchiladas to last us through next week.
4. Go to my mother-in-laws to celebrate her birthday.
5. Figure out what we want in a starter home.

Four favorite CDs:
1. Savatage--Dead Winter Dead.
2. Savatage--Handful of Rain.
3. Eternity X--The Edge.
4. Dream Theater--Images and Words.
Yes, I know that the only way any of you have ever heard of these is through me...
They're still incredible.

Best book I've read recently:
The Wizard Heir, by Cinda Williams Chima. Like Harry Potter, except the kid's tech-savvy and the school is EVIL.

New book that's on top of to-read list:
Biography of Henry Eyring (the scientist-father of President Eyring), written by President Eyring's son (Henry Eyring's grandson). I have and love the book written by Henry Eyring himself, "Reflections of a Scientist".

Where we'll be in six months:
1. Salt Lake?
2. Provo?
3. Seattle?
4. Somewhere in Oregon?
5. Boulder Colorado?
6. Las Vegas?
7. New Mexico?
8. North Carolina?
9. Somewhere else?

Biggest pet peeves:
1. Downstairs neighbors who smoke in non-smoking apartments.
2. Teenagers with no respect for authority.
3. Teenagers who are so convinced that they are stupid that they become stupid.
4. Spoiled teenagers.
5. Stupid teenagers (did I already say that?)

Who I'm voting for in November:
1. McCain (maybe).
2. Obama (maybe).

What I'm thankful for:
1. April.
2. An income.
3. Good music.
4. That Romney's out (it's great he's LDS, but he pandered way too much to the religious right and took way too harsh a stand on illegal immigrants).
5. That Obama and McCain are still in (and that Huckabee doesn't stand a chance).

Five people to tag:
As I said, I'm the last one, so I lose.
But as far as people who seriously need to get blogs (or write more in them if they have them):
1. Ben (and family)
2. Dan
3. Kristi
4. Jay (thanks for the recent post, by the way)
5. Kirk (and family)

Hey, the other night we watched White Noise 2. It is about this guy that has a near death experience, and then can tell when other people are about to die. You don't need to see the first one before watching this one. Granted it is not a great movie, I think it was direct-to-DVD, but it has a couple of interesting things going for it. It stars Nathan Fillion from Firefly and the girl that plays Starbuck on Battlestar. Her character sponsors a music recital with kids singing her dead husbands favorite music. In one scene they are singing Rush's "Spirit of Radio". You don't get to hear very much, but it was kinda cool, and it mad me think of you. It has some slightly disturbing stuff in it like ghosts and demonic possession, so just keep that in mind.

Not that ghosts are necessarily disturbing, but their depiction in the movie is a little.
