On my way up to campus there was a girl on a unicycle, she cruised on by and a quickly snapped a picture on my phone, thinking that pretty odd, a unicycle commuter, thats blogworthy. I went along my way. later on I was in the Wilk minding my own business when another unicycle scurried by, two in one day; one girl, one guy. Whats gonna happen when they meet? I can almost picture the wedding announcement now. The two of them riding into the sunset, on a unicycle built for two.

In Case Of Emergency

In the Widsoe Building on campus there is a random red phone in the wall in case you need to get in touch with the President, Batman, or any other fictional authorities who have glass encased Flashing red phones on their desks. So, next time I need to stop a villain before he/she starts a nuclear holocaust I'll know just where to go.

In Provo Not of Provo

This blog is dedicated to weird people or things we see in Provo right? Well I saw two things today that should have struck me as odd, but seeing that I'm in Provo, they didn't surprise me at all.

First Lamas, I know what your thinking Lamas are native to South America, right? Nope they're native to the Krishna Temple in Salem Utah, you know the building that looks like Aladdin's palace down by Spanish Fork, they rent Lamas by the day. And while this was a novelty at first, after parties and publicity stunts exploiting these Lamas; Now they're about as common in Provo as an introverted home-schooled girl who sews her own clothes.

Second: A Proposal. with marriage rate on the decline, and a proposal being, generally speaking, a private offer made between two love birds, you might think you'd see few if any proposals. But as this Blog has proven, and will probably continue to prove in the future, Provoites are not afraid to share their affection in the oddest places. This time it was the Math lab, this is common enough here in Provo, so we all clapped and congratulated them and went back to work on our homework. Now I know you're all wondering, and so were we, Why 3pm Wednesday in the math lab? I don't know, but I don't doubt it was accompanied with a card that said something along the lines of U+M.e=∞.
Well they say we're a peculiar people here in Provo, and I can't disagree.

Translation From British

No picture included in this one, but I thought I might jot down a couple of classic quotes from my composite teacher. Can you really blame this on being British?

"Question one was easy. I think everyone got it right...except Moises...who would have had a pretty good score otherwise."

After a grad student tried to explain something well over most of our heads for nearly 5 minutes my teacher stopped him and without even attempting to address the concern said,

"Now that Erick has thoroughly confused all of us, lets move on to a new subject"

Those were just from the last two days. From now on maybe I'll start taking better notes. (for the blog of course)

Knives, Forks, and...

There was no way for me to get a good picture of this, without walking up to the offender and asking for it straight out. Maybe I should have done that, but I couldn't. What you can't see from this picture is that, on the cover of the PowerBook
was a a phrase written in plastic cursive stick-on. Unless I'm mistaken, and I hope I am, it said "Spoon Me".

It only makes sense. When you buy a $1,700 machine, it's important to have something powerful to use it for. Some people would say video editing, some people would design the shuttle. You might even invent something like the Internet. Or it could be a billboard advertising our availability for spoonage.

To be honest, she must have been having a bad day, because she looked about as inviting for spooning as an Arizona cactus.

And Taxes for All

This one comes to us from Jenna F. THANKS, Jenna!

"Every Tuesday and Thursday, when I drive to class at 3:30 pm., I see this guy outside of Liberty Tax at 500 N University Avenue. And every time, I think, Wow, that would be perfect for...'This Just Happened' (of which I happen to be an aficionado). But, do you know how hard it is to get a picture this good while driving...amongst Provo drivers...with a broken camera-phone lens? I can't believe I managed to do it. Let's just say, I've already been in one car accident this year, but I almost risked getting in a second one just for you. So, even if you don't think it's blogworthy, you should post it anyway, for the obvious fact I have mad camera-phone skills and nerves of steel.

He's probably just one of many desperate BYU accounting grads, ready to pounce on the opportunity to do someone's taxes."

4 x 4

You know what? You're right. There really isn't any reason why you shouldn't take up FOUR PARKING SPOTS in a crowded parking lot. You spent all that money on such a large vehicle, you deserve those spots. Really, it's charitable of you to not park laterally across six spots. Thanks for leaving most of the lot unmolested.

As seen in the parking lot next to the J. Reuben Clarke building on a very busy Saturday, when many people were visiting campus.

Dark fake rub on tans, heavy sparklely colored eye shadow, tight fitting clothes, fake eyelashes. Are Floozies descending on BYU? No just the semi-annual DanceSport competition, this is a big deal here at BYU. I find myself running into people I know, and not recognizing them, because their dressed like Ladies of the night.

Yes You Are

Seems to be a recurring thing on here, the plates.

I'm not exactly sure what this person is trying to indicate with "HPYCOW".


"Happy Cow"?
"Hippie Cow"?
"I Wanted to Write Something on my Liscence Plate Just Because I Could"?

In a post-modern world, maybe it's all of those and more.

to quote Demetri Martin,
“A lot of people don’t like bumper stickers. I don’t mind bumper stickers. To me a bumper sticker is a shortcut. It’s like a little sign that says ‘Hey, let’s never hang out."

Here are a few I've seen over the past couple months that tickled my fancy;

An issue that was a big deal for about a month 9 years ago.

Nothing like some self deprecating racism.

It may be an acronym for something, but to me its just a vulgar euphemism
it's not just an addiction it's a disease

Both of them are.

This one is compliments of Jodi L. Thanks Jodi.

"So I have two pictures. The first is a license plate I saw on Uni Ave this morning. IBBROWN. Which is pretty self explanatory. The second is a guy sitting near me in the RB this morning. I didn't want to know if they were his G's or compression shorts but he was just chilling, reading a book with his bare feet on the table and the legs of his basketball shorts as close to his waist as possible.
Fun times."



After years of constant pressure from his parents to become a world class Badmitton player Jimmy Snapped, and tore all his Mormon Ads off the wall and swore to never play badmitton again.... this is actually just the DI trash can, but this was too good to pass up, proving once again, "One man's trash in another man's treasure."

Where's Waldo?

I found him in the NO SHH in the in the HBLL. I think he was part of some contest put on by BYUSA, but to be honest I stopped paying attention after he said I could take his picture. The best part about this is that he was a lot like the waldo I remember in the books, he was just as nice as I'd always remembered(a little awkward), and the get up was exactly the same camera and all. I was kinda excited that I had found him and just like in fourth grade, I found him while I wasn't really even searching for him.
