I have to give a shout-out to my friend Carie Eastman!
It's her birthday today!!!
And since she apparently checks my blog daily to see if I wrote anything new, I figured I would dedicate an entire post to her! Congratulations!
Carie and I met long, long ago (2002) in the land of the orange blob (a.k.a. the BYU Comprehensive Clinic in the Taylor Building at BYU. Everything in the building was orange, hence the "orange blob") Carie and I worked together and often had nothing to do, so we would chat on the phone, in person, and through thousands and thousands of emails (not exaggerated. I checked) Carie was usually the one who got to listen to me "vent" about stupid things or just hear what is going through my mind (which is frightening sometimes...I can't believe she's still my friend!)
So if you ever want to know anything about me (pet peeves, who I'm in love with, what scares me, if I'm really happy or just faking it, favorite stupid movie quotes, etc.), Carie is the one you should ask! She remembers more about me than I usually do.
Thanks for being such an awesome friend, Carie!
Check your email, Carie...I'm sending you a nice, long one like the olden days of working at the clinic when we had absolutely nothing to do. It's a really long email, but trust me...it's a good one!
